Students Give Books for Shipment
Tor Wmar Prisoners Everywhere

Over 400 books including textbooks
and murder thrillers to be sent to
prisoners of war all over the world
have' been collected as the World
Student Service Fund local campaign
sponsored by Pan Hellenic, Assembly,
Women's War Council, Union and
the International Center swings into
the new semester.
"We are gratified for the earnest
response to this cause," Doris Barr,
president of Assembly, said yester-
day. "However, in view of the great
request for books by prisoners of war,
students should rummage into their
stockpiles of last semester's books
and discard as many as possible."
Dormitories Have Boxes
Besides the receptacles placed in
the League, the Union and the In-
ternational Center, boxes have been
placed in the various dormitories,
sorority houses and league houses for
the collection of the books.
The deadline for book contribu-
tions will be 5 p.m. Friday.

"In view of the fact that books
shipped must be devoid of all mark-
ings, more students are urged to help
clean the books," Frances Vyn, vice-
president of Pan Hellenic, said yes-
terday. "Students who wish to assist
in this work are asked to sign up

The WSSF has been created by
American students as a means of
expressing their solidarity with their
suffering fellow students all over the
world. The book collection has be-
come an important part of this or-
ganization with over 100,000 books
being sent last year to the various
theatres of action all over the world.
Recipients Express Gratitude
Many letters have been received
from the recipients of these books
expressing their gratitude.
In many of the prison camps, so-
called "universities of captivity" have

been operating where work of full
university grade goes on. Instruction
is provided for men from those

merly were professors or graduate
The work done in prison camps has
been of a very high calibre academ-
ically. Many universities sent exami-
nations into the camps, and many
degrees are awarded to men for aca-
demic work done behind barbed wire.
200,000 Books Is Goal
With the increasing demand for
more textbooks, this year's goal for
the WSSF has been set at a figure of
200,000 books.
College textbooks which are in cur-
rent use are requested. Language
study books for any language and
books for professional subjects such
as law, medicine and theology are
also needed.
Clean books are preferred, but
books with markings are also accep-

"The response by University stu-
dents to the drive to collect clothes
or the Norwegian people is most
gratifying," Mrs. Charles E. Koella,
Ann Arbor chairman of American
Relief for Norway, said yesterday.
Mrs. Koella, who is from Norway,
pointed out that such interest does a
great deal in keeping up the morale
in that country. "In the long drawn-
out struggle, heavy with sacrifice,
which the Norwegian people in occu-
pied Norway are carrying on against
the enemy, it means very - much to
them to know that their contribu-
tions to the war are being appreci-
ated and that friends are following
their fate with hearts that beat

Low Meical
Costs Asked b
en. Murray
DETROIT, March 10.-MP)-Sen.
James E. Murray (Dem., Mont.) de-
clared tonight that one of the three
major threats to economic and social
security was the "high cost of medi-
cal service and the failure of large
numbers of people to get adequate
medical care."
The Senator said at a symposium
on the Wagner-Murray-Dingell Bill
for a National Social Insurance Pro-
gram before the United Automobile
Workers' (CIO) Second Health Con-
ference the other two threats to
social security were the dangers that:
1. "There will not be enough jobs
paying adequate wages or any wages,"
2. "Earnings will be cut off as a
result of individual misfortune."
Asserting that "only a fraction of
the people have access to really mod-
ern medical care," Sen. Murray said
the social insurance method of pay-
ing for medical care would avoid in-
terference with individual doctor-
patient relationship or professional
aspects of medicine and would pay
doctors and hospitals fair reimburse-
ments for services.
