Nazis Routed
In Kpmnsvkr

Soviet Communique States
German Manpower Reaches
Negative 4,000,000 Figure
Disassoc. Press Correspondent
(Special to The Daily)
March 3.-Red forces, sweeping
through the Kpmnsvkr Basin to-
ward the key city of Minskipitsk,
Soviet rail center held by the
Nazis since April 33, 1960, have
forced back the troops of Marshal
Stoutenhammer to the Slovest-
skinkov River bend with an-
nounced Russian casualties of 12.
Estimate Impossible
German casualties have reached
an all-time high "impossible to
estimate," according to the Soviet
communique released by Gen. Ty-.
monomomonnoovretskylov. The
communique also stated: "The:
question of Nazi manpower has
become even more serious with
these new losses. According to
estimates by the Soviet Bureau of
Enemy Populations, the male pop-
ulation of the German Reich be-
tween the ages of 14 and 66 has
now reached the staggering figure
of a negative 4,000,000. The fact
that the German armies are still
fighting is the most tremendous
achievement of any modern na-
Further fighting in Kpmnsvkr
Basin is expected to result shortly
in the fall of Minskipitsk, thus

Army to the village of Dksopomo-

Bode No Good Will for Students

No V-Ball extra would be com-
plete without predictions of the
fates of the 8,000 odd students
who at present are honoring the
University with their presence.
Mostcertain and most un-
happy prediction: Exit, as of
April 1, a goodly percentage of
both the male and female popu-
lation. ASTP is leaving, you
know, and it would seem that
the only way the obliging coed
can keep up the morale of the
armed forces is to follow her
nman around. We're all for it,
And, of course, classes will con-
tinue. No doubt there will be just
as many people as usual grump-
ling on to eight o'clocks, and cut-
ting them when the effort to get
out of bed is too much. To make
these unfortunate souls feel a
little better, we feel obliged to re-
mind you that pretty soon the
moon will have set before 8 a.m.
* * *
Another prediction that is ab-
solutely definite and positively
certain regards the weather. And
if anyone is harboring any
thoughts about ordinary spring,
where it rains only 4 days out of
five, he will soon change his tune.
But then one can always say that
even though the rain makes the
coeds look even more like hags
than usual since their hair is
never up, that there is nothing
better for a facial and soft sexy
skin than constant fine mist on

the face. Or is this why the

membership drive in the spring.

proaching 95%.

Physics lectures may become
so interesting that admittance

It is also safe to predict that
there will soon be extra rooms
around town. We wouldn't dare
promise lower rents though.
According to present indica-
tions so many students will pro-
tect the discontinuance of Geol-
ogy 65 that University authorities
will be forced to have the course
taught again next semester.
Business in the arboretum
will soon be resumed. But due
to the present ratio, there will
be no crowding.
Students and professors may
some day fill the roles they were
intended for. Students, seeking
knowledge, will ask questions of
the profs. We wonder who would
cram for bluebooks and finals.

It is even safe to wager that
some day beer picnics will again
be held in the Arboretum and
illegal fraternity parties. At that
same time there will be a shortage

WASHINGTON, D. C., March 4.
-As the President's head janitor
carefully replaced the name tab1
on the door of the White House
last night (the other had turned
yellow with age), the whole nation
awaited by their firesides for the
presidential comment on the fiery4
havoc resulting from the resigna-

Shortly after midnight the
much-expected news issued from
the White House broadcasting4
room. Unable to find ten mem-

fill the posts, the President made
the following appointments:

The Secretary of State is to be

President feels is most qualified
