FDR, Churchill, Have
Gone to Teheran To
Meet Russia's Stalin
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Dec. 2.-An ultima-
tum to Germany to surrender or be
bombed to destruction, is being
drawn up by President Roosevelt,
Prime Minister Churchill and Pre-
mier Stalin in a meeting at Tabriz
in northwest Iran, unconfirmed
press reports from Turkey assert-
LONDON, Dec. 2.-eA forthright'
promise to grant Germany post-
war freedom from slavery under any
power, however heavily she must pay
for the war, appears to be a possible
result of the predicted conference of
President Roosevelt, Prime Minister
Churchilland Premier Stalin.
The American and British chiefs
of state have gone to Iran to meet
Stalin, said reports from Axis and
neutral sources, after their epochal
Pacific war talks with Generalissimo
Chiang Kai-shek in North Africa.
Coference Is Underway
These reports abroad said the new
conference already was under way,
and they placed it variously in the
Persian capital, Teheran, in the
country home of the former ruler,
Reza Shah Pahlavi, near Teheran,
and at Tabriz, in northwest Iran.
Vital decisions for the defeat of
Germany, abolition of Hitlerism in
Europe, the future of Germany and
her satellites and possibly a settle-
ment of the differences between Po-
land and Russia, were forecast in
Proclamationa May Come
German and neutral commentators
predict the conference will be follow-
ed by a proclamation from the Al-
lied leaders to the German people
calling on them to drop out of the
war, with a threat of intensified air
attacks if the war continues.
They expect a similar demand of
the satellite states to withdraw their
troops from the fighting fronts and
to break their alliance with Berlin.

With fraternities, sororities, and
many other campus societies organiz-
ing the annual Goodfellow Drive, the
campaign promises to be a complete
success when the special Goodfellow
Daily appears on the streets Monday.
Since' 1935 the proceeds of the
campaign have been helping Ann Ar-
bor's needy families and University
The money raised by the drive will
be turned over to the Dean of Stu-
dents' office which will handle the
division of the funds to students and
to the Family Child and Service.
Not Be Enslaved in Post-War
WASTE 59,168 HOURS:
Bonds Purchased in Remembrance of Pearl Harbor
3nly Half of 'U' Coeds
Are Doing War Work
By MAVIS KENNEDY
STATISTICS from the Office of the Dean of Women and
the League Undergraduate offices show that 1,849 out
of 3,070 University women are carrying on no activities
beyond their school work and their amusements. It is these
1,849 who must prove that an opportunity for independent
initiative will result in more than additional hours over a
coke, a bridge game, or at a show.
At present, women are asked to devote at least two
hours a week to extracurricular activities. On this basis,
THESE 1,849 COEDS WHO ARE HAVING A PRE-
PEARL HARBOR GOOD TIME ARE WASTING 3,698
MAN-HOURS OF WORK A WEEK. THAT IS 59,168
HOURS OF POTENTIAL WORK LOST IN A 16-
Two hours of work a week, not necessarily war work
at that, is so little as to be 'pitiful when women are needed
for every conceivable job-on campus. It is so little that a
coed who 'gives only that much should be ashamed. Yet the
amount of necessary work that goes undone because 1,849
coeds cannot even stir out of their larval lethargy for a
minimum of two hours weekly is proof that these women
are not ready to undertake any action which does not con-
tribute to their own pleasure.
Women demanded co-education for years before they
got it. They had to prove themselves worthy of education
before they received that right. Women demanded the
right to vote; the right to assume leadership. They got
what they wanted, but they didn't get it by complaining.
They got it by hard work.; by proving their capability to
The battle isn't won yet. University coeds cannot rest
on their laurels. They must prove that they can rise to a
wartime emergency; that they are deserving of this educa-
tion. WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
If they won't work because work isn't fun, University
authorities should treat them like babies; they are babies.
Folding sheets in a laundry isn't anyone's idea of a
lifetime job, but laundries have to keep operating, espe-
cially when a large hospital depends on them for clean bed
linen and uniforms. Rolling bandages gets tiresome, but
wounded men don't stop needing them because coeds have
blue books coming up and just haven't had time to study'
The 1,849 wonen who refuse to work aren't unpatri-
otic. They are lazy. They want the war to be over, but
they want someone else to do the work and make the sacri-
fices. They are still wrapped in a pre-Pearl Harbor dream
of ideal' colle gelife.

Pilot Was Protected
For 10 Days Behind f
Jap Lines by Guerrillast
Lt. Tom Harmon was shot downt
by a swarm of Zeros darting out of
the sun, while he and three other
pilots were furnishing fighter protec-
tion for a bombing mission, accord-
ing to the commanding officer of his
squadron's ground crew who arrived
in the United States from China
This was the first personal account
of Harmon's experiences during the
25 days he was reported missing. The
officer phoned Mrs. Louis A. Harmon
Wednesday night to tell her of her<
son's escape from Jap-held territory.
The bombing mission had been
successfully completed and the planes
were about five minutes away from
the target of Kiuking when they were
attacked. Tom was flying in "tail"
position, one of the most dangerous,
and his plane was among the four
that were downed.
After he jumped from the burning
plane, the remaining pilots circled1
his parachute to protect him from
Jap machinegun fire during his des-
cent into enemy-held territory. A'
band of Chinese guerrillas rescued
him and he remained under their
protection for ten days before he was
able to make his way back to an
advanced American base several hun-
dred miles away.
His safety was rumored by a "won-
derful grapevine" system of the guer-
rillas a number of days before it was'
