OPA Action
Is Not Legal,
Hunters Told
The Detroit Sportsmen's Congress
announced Thursday night that it
was distributing handbills in St. Ig-
nace advising returning hunters that
they were not required to tell OPA
agents how they had used their gaso-
line coupons.
"The OPA has no right to search
these hunters and ask them to in-
criminate themselves," said Walter
Kelly, a member of the legal commit-
tee of the Congress and president of
the Michigan' United Conservation
clubs. "We think the action of the
OPA is unconstitutional."
Kelly said he had asked Harry
Gaines of Grand Rapids, executive
secretary of the United Conservation
Clubs, to protest OPA action against
deer hunters suspected of gasoline
rationing violations to U.S. Sen. Ho-
mer Ferguson and Michigan con-
The OPA's checkup of hunters
crossing the Straits by ferry had re-
sulted Tuesday night in the suspen-
sion of gasoline allowances for 17.
Approximately 60 cases had been
heard by OPA officials in Mackinac
City, about a third of the hearings
resulted in dismissals. Fred W. Lind-
bloom, OPA district enforcement of-
ficer from Detroit, said other cases
were referred to local rationing
Lindbloom said most of the viola-
tors had been pooling gasoline or
were using accumulated gasoline, of-
ten carried along in containers.
There will be a meeting for all
persons interested iniselling stu-
dent directories at 4 p.m. today at
the Ensian business office, Student
Publications Building.

"A few weeks ago," he cabled, "I
was convinced that Turkey would
not enter the war before spring;
but now I am convinced she will be
in the war by spring."
If that is true, British reverses in
the Aegean, which General Sir Henry
Maitland Wilson said were worth
their cost in disproportionate casual-
ties inflicted on the foe and in their
diversionary effect, may be quickly
overcome. From bases in nearby Tur-
key, Allied air power could turn the
tables on Nazi garrisons of all Aegean
islands, including Crete and Rhodes.
The Ankara forecast is highly sig-
nificant for that reason, and also
because early Russian-Allied military
decisions to implement the Moscow
policy agreements are widely expect-
ed. Secretary Hull hinted at that in
his unprecedented report to a joint
session of Congress on his mission to
Hull said the time is nearing
when Germany and its "remaining
satellites will have to go the way:
of Fascist Italy." He expressed,
pleasure in reporting that a "com-
petent" United States military
commission under General John R.
Deane is now in Moscow.
Establishment of that military liai-
son and its counterpart in London is
an initial step toward the military
coordination of Soviet and Anglo-
American attacks on Germany. It
would be the function of such mili-
tary groups to prepare studies of
offensive operations for final decision
by higher authority.
Turkish adhesion tothe United
Nations' cause under her alliance
with Britain, or even the granting
of operational bases in Turkey, as
Portugal made available vitally im-
portant bases in the Azores, would
utterly change the war map in the
Aegean - Eastern Mediterranean

capture of Leros Island will prove

ara or in Moscow.
The massive Russian offensive
spreading west of the Dnieper from
the Pripet cinfuence to the Black
Sea is reaching its c ulminating
phase to threaten Rumania. A col-
lopse of Nazi Balkan satellites at this
juncture would certainly accelerate
a fresh German debacle in Russia of
unpredictable effect on the dura-
tion of the war. It is beyond ques-
tion that Soviet-Allied joint plan-
ning is aimed at that as well as at
expediting other contemplated at-
tacks, and that Turkey's place in the
anti-Axis fellowship and the role she
is to play from now on must come
under urgent reconsideration.
Jap Fanaticism
Delays Peace
Cmdr. Pettyjohn Says
Nips 'Won't Surrender'
"We can't make peace with the
Japs because they don't expect to
come back from the war and won't
surrender,"' Cmdr. Elmore S. Petty-
john, former University professor,
said recently.
Home on leave after eighteen
months' service in the South Pacific,
Cmdr. Pettyjohn told how the Amer-
icans on Tulagi set fire to a hut filled
with Japs and the fanatical enemy
soldiers roasted to death rather than
give up.
In September, 1940, he was called
from his position as associate profes-
sor of chemical engineering to active
duty with the Navy. He served in the
Atlantic as a gunnery officer on a
transport and in 1942.was transferred
to the Naval amphibious force sta-
tioned on an attack transport.
Among his service awards is the
Navy-Marine Corps medal awarded
for heroic conduct on Tulagi, as well
as the South Pacific-Asiatic ribbon
with two stars for service at Guadal-
canal and a Naval Reserve ribbon
and star representing twenty of his
twenty-six years in the Naval Re-

Mr. Butzle was a member of the
