University Women's Glee Club Dec.

the first time in the thirty-eight year
history of that Michigan girls' organ-

service group.
The Glee Club this year totals some
sixty-five girls, and according to
President Patty Spore, is one of the
most talented combinations to gather
in recent years.
Founded in 1905, the Glee Club has,
had a respected place since that time
in Michigan musical circles. Under
the directorship of Mrs. Nora Crane
Hunt, the Glee Club grew and pros-
pered. Mrs. Hunt retired from the
directorship in 1939 after 32 years of
faithful guidance, and is now con-

Men's Glee Club and other men's
choral groups, but never with a serv-

cluded a broadcast over a national
hookup, also.
Present director, as well as director4
of the Choir is Mr. Wilson Sawyer,
with Miss Midge Gould as student
director. Miss Gould is a veteran of
four years in the Glee Club. Her

Fatal Accidents
Corrective Measures
Are Sought by Sate
Conseryation Officers
LANSING. Nov. 30.-(X/P)-Another
fatal deer hunting accident brought
the loss of life among hunters to 17
today. as the annual Michigan "big
game" hunting season ended.
State conservation officers, shocked
at this rise in loss of life when; they
had expected a decrease, sought toG
plan corrective measures for future;
years as they received the report of
the latest fatality. They said Douglas;
Schrade, 18. of Mikado. was fatally
wounded when his shotgun slipped
from its rest on a log, firing a charge
into his hip.
Never before has Michigan had
more than 14 fatalities from gunfire
among its hunters.
Conservation department records
listed 38 other persons wounded by
accidental gunfire, compared with 27,
last year and 41 in 1941, the record
Hunters Not Precautious
The enforcement division of the
department suggested" that "trigger
happy" hunters, more interested in
getting -meat because of rationing'
than they were in hunting as a sport,
were responsible for many serious
accidents. Duward Robson, chief of
the divisiorn, said he saw evidence
that more than, a usual number of.
'hunters fired without taking proper
Supporting the contention, the
education division pointed to a sharp
rise in the number of illegally-slain
does found in the woods, and in the
1$number of arrests for- hunting law
violations, including the prohibited
practice of "shining" deer. This in-
volves use of a flashlight at night to
cause the deer to "freeze" in their
tracks when the light strikes their
. eyes, giving the hunters an easy shot.
Small Game Accidents Decline
The number of fatai accidents
among small game hunters declined
this fall, and department officials
attributed this to a shortage of am-
munition which made hunters make
sure of their shots lest they waste
precious shells. Desire for meat in
- this case tended to make them more
e careful.
s t The accounting division estimated
j 200,000 deer hunters were licensed
e this fall. 15,000 fewer than last year.

Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, Commander
of the Mid-Pacific area, visited bat-
tle-scarred Tarawa Atoll of the Gil-
bert Islands today.
After inspecting the battle-.

and smelling of death, he said 'Ta-
rawa was the most difficult attack
United States forces had'yet made
in the Pacific, but it augured well
for the future that we were able to
crack this heavily defended Japan-
ese position.
The Admiral hinted at future Cen-
tral Pacific offensives and that there
would be no rest following the cap.-
ture of Tarawa by declaring, "'We
shall continue constant pressure on

Admiral Nimitz said specifically
that we will continue to hit the
Marshall Islands, the oft-bombed
island chain to the nort. The Ta=
rawa Airfield, he said, will be a
highly important offensive factor
in carrying the war deeper into the
enemy's Pacific Empire.
The Admiral said he was afraid the
American people were not sufficiently
impressed with the toughness of the
battle for Tarawa because it was over
in three days.
"The Japs haven't lost the ili to
fight," he continued.
He emphasized that "Their army
has barely been touched. they're well
trained and full of fight."
The Admiral doubted, however,.
that the enemy had the means or
"the stomach" to re-take Tarawa.
They would have to have control of
the air, which they can't get now,

he said, and they haven't enough

Admiral Nimitz was accompanied
by Lt. Cen. R. . Richardson, com-

tour of the island by Maj. Gen. Ju-

Smith proudly told of the heroism

he paused solemnly amid the deb-
ris and wreckage and said to Ni-
nitz,,'Admiral, this area the other
day was covered with our dead-

General Richardson said the torn
battleground reminded him of Ypres
in World War One, but this was even
more difficult because the only ap
proach was by water, with no cover.

Reading Lights
Civilians Are Asked
To )onate Ola Lamps
The Army is still in the dark.
Reading lamps are urgently need-
ed by Army personnel in their bar-
racks for study purposes, it was an-
nounced yesterday by the public re-
lations officer,;-Lt. Catherine Jamnes.
It seems that the Army is unable to
supply reading lamps at once and in
sufficient quantity for its several
hun dred men on campus; conse-
quently a plea is being made to all
University students, faculty, and Ann
Arbor townspeople, to turn in lamps
that are in usable condition.
"Contributions of lamps of any
kind, even though slight repairs are
necessary, will be greatly appreciat-
ed." Lt. James stated.
Lamps may be turned in at the
East Quadrangle. If you are un-
able to deliver it call 4121, ext. 720
and the lamp will be picked up a
soon as possible.
