Gov. Kelly Proclaims 'D-Day' as One for Solemn Refl

Announce Invasion
Governor Harry F. Kelly has pro-
claimed "D-Day," invasion day, as a
day for solemn reflection and prayer,
when all people of Michigan are
asked to petition Providence for suc-
cess in battle and for the safety of
servicemen, Ann Arbor Police Chief
Mortenson revealed yesterday.
In connection with Gov. Kelly's
proclamation, the Michigan Office of
Civilian Defense, with the coopera-
tion of the University, churches and
city officials, has devised a plan for
simultaneous state - wide observance
of D-Day,
No False Alarms
The day to be officially observed as
D-Day will be designated by the Gov-
ernor. This is being done to guard
against premature observances based
on false invasion reports and to pro-
vide for the simultaneous one-min-
ute pause. The day will be chosen
immediately after it has been au-
thoritatively recognized that the in-
vasion is under way.
Ann Arbor air raid sirens, the Uni-
versity whistle, the Carillon Tower
and church bells will be used to an-
nounce the invasion, after official re-
ports have been received by the City
Police. At that time the signals will
be used for a period of 90 seconds.
This is to be followed by a cessation
of all activities for a period of one
minute, which is to be given over to
silent prayer and reflection upon the
solemn significance of the occasion.
. Chief Mortenson emphasized the
fact that the observance is specifically
not a celebration, but a moment for
solemn reflection upon the cause for
which we fight and prayers for the
men and women who are risking their
lives in the battle.
Occasion for Prayer
The purpose of D-Day observance
is to retain control over invasion ob-
servances by avoiding the develop-
ment of anything that might have
the characteristic of celebration; to
prevent by means of' official an-
nouncement flash observances based
on erroneous reports; to take ad-
vantage of the value of unanimous
prayer as stated by leading .clergy-
men, and to emphasize to the public
that this is an occasion for solemnity
and prayer.
Travieso Talks
On Venezuela
Emphasizing the willingness of
Venezuela to cement relations with
all countries in the Americas, Dr.
Armando Travieso, in a talk spon-
sored by the Latin American Society
end International Center, last night
spoke on "Caracas the Intellectual."
Travieso explained that the fertile
soil of the country has not been ade-
quately cultivated and that the rich
mineral resources have not been ex-
tensively exploited. "Manufacturing
has advanced enormously," Travieso
stated, explaining that large amounts
of national and foreign capital have
been invested.

Couneil Airs
Fall Election
Coming Presidential
Voting Is Discussed
Parliamentary, economic and in-
ternational phases. of the coming
presidential election were discussed
at a Post-War Council panel last
night by Prof. H. M. Dorr, Prof. Sho-
rey Peterson and Prof. Kenneth G.
"We are facing a crisis in world or-
ganization," Prof. Dorr said, "and be-
cause of the system and workings of
the American government our action
in such a crsis depends to a large
degree on the President." When-
ever the American people believe that
something is at stake, the authority
is always in the President, he added.
Economic Aspects Discussed
Discussing economic aspects of the
election, Prof. Peterson said, "We can
be certain, whoever the candidates
are, they're all going to say that they
are friends of capitalism and that
they want to make it work."
Prof. Peterson posed two questions
on which a "tremendous amount
hinges as far as the future of our
society is concerned": the employ-
ment problem and the cartel issue.
"The future organization of economic
life hinges to a substantial extent on
what might be called the cartel issue,"
he added.
"Yardstick" Suggested
Remriarking that we are an "inter-
nationally minded" people, Prof.
Hance proposed a "yardstick" for
judging presidential candidates. Con-
sideration of experience and ability
and point of view, he believes, could
well serve as a measure of the can-
didate's worth. He added that this
is a time when "experience must be
measured very, very heavily."
"We want a President who has an
international point of view," Prof
Hance said.

Anzio Tank, Douhle Trouble,'
Carries Oti with Its Reputation

Assojcated Press Corresponadent
layed). - "Double Trouble," a tank
that belies its name, rumbled back
from the Alban Hills at dusk today
with a shell hole in its nose, red wine
in a water can and 13 German pris-
oners trailing behind.
Steering his aged steel monster to
the nearest mechanical surgeon, Sgt.
Ralph Johnson poked his dusty face
out of the driver's seat and grinned
"We are trading it tonight for an-
other one- Triple Trouble'."
The 22-year-old Kentuckian from
Louisville who had to leave his bride
of six weeks to come overseas, was
the first tanker to drive across the
Cisterna-Rome railroad at noon to-
day and crack the German beach-
head line.
While machine-gun bullets spat-
tered against "Double Trouble's"
rugged frame, Gunner Cpl. Arthur
Boenze of St. Louis, Mo. "fired at
everything-Krauts going down in
dugouts and Krauts climbing trees."
When the platoon leader, Lt. Walter
Russell, of "Somewhere on Lng Is-
land," lost his own tank on a mine,
he hailed "Double Trouble," climbed
in and the sortie continued.

Referring to the problem arising
out of the appropriate role of public
debt-financed investment as a means
of providing full employment, Palmer
said, "Here one can make a con-
vincing case to the effect that public
investment will raise the level of
employment by some multiple if pri-
vate investment does not fall. Our
experience in the middle 1930's sug-
gests that one cannot overlook the
depressing effect of public investment
on private investment if the public
investment competes in any way with
private investment opportunities.
"The one type of public invest-
ment that will not deter private
investment is preparation for war.
This was fully demonstrated in
many countries in the late 1930's
and early 1940's. It is not a consol-
ing conclusion."
Palmer opposed any pay-back pro-
gram on lease-lend debts incurred
by other nations, saying, "If all the
Allies are contributing men and ma-
terials to the fullest extent of their
respective abilities, wvhether England
or the United States or Russia uses
a particular tank or gun or soldier is
"We don't ask payment for
troops killed, and it would be
equally urnreasonable to ask pay-
ment for goods. Such balancing of
accounts would impede full inter-
national confidence and coopera-
Rather than announcing cancella-
tion of such debts now, he indicated
that it might be desirable to use such
cancellations as a device to force
recalcitrant nations into line in es-
tablishing international currency sta-
bilization programs or in opening up

How to

before it happens!




- -




Friday, May 26th
Tuesday, May 30th

It's no fun sitting in the dark simply because a
blown fuse has plunged your house into a black-
out. Most fuse trouble can be stopped before it
happens by observing a few simple precautions.
(1) Frayed lamp cords and extension cords are often
responsible for short circuits. Such frayed cords are
dangerous. Have them repaired BEFORE they cause
trouble. (Don't loop cords over a nail. Don't kink
cords or tie them in knots. Don't run cord through a
door lamb or under rugs.) (2) Never put an.electric
appliance in water. Never poke at the element of
your electric toaster (or any other appliance) with
a fork or sharp tool, whether turned on or off.
(3) Don't connect too many appliances and extra
lamps on one circuit. (4) Be careful not to overload
your washer, or feed too many pieces of clothing
through the wringer at one time. The same is true
of your ironer. (5) Disconnect appliances by pulling
on the plug-never jerk out the cord. Do not let
cords come in contact with water, grease or acids.
(6) If a faulty lamp or appliance burns out a fuse,
disconnect it at once-and don't use again until it
has been repaired.



Electricity is not rafioned. But its production requires
coal and railroad transportation. Don't waste if!
