Nazi Propagandists Confused by

New Residence
Halls Give Men
A Varied Life
Freshmen Men Are
Jack of All Trades in
Old Fraternity Houses
Freshmen men in the new men's
residence halls are getting a taste of
both dorm life and fraternity life,
cemented by a knowledge of house
Brooms and dusteloths are becom-
ing familiar implements to them, for
maids are no longer existent. Unlike
the semi-annual inspection the girls'
rooms get, the boys have their rooms
inspected twice a week by their house
Tend Furnaces
Even though there are porters in
most of the houses, the cold, grey,
mornings of Ann Arbor are powerful
inducements to make them familiar
with the workings of the furnaces.
As many of the boys are engineers,
trifles like bad plumbing and electri-
cal intricacies present no great prob-
lems. "But we still haven't solved the
problem of the shower that'e either
too hot or too cold," admitted Doug
Lent of Elmwood House.
Light Trouble
Gene Hanis of Oxford Manor has
an especially vital problem on his
hands. The lights in the room next
door are on an extension from his
room, so if -he forgets and turns o&f
his lights, the other boys are left in
total darkness.
According to Don Santog of Lock-
wood Manor, the new houses have
the advantage of producing a friend-
lier atmosphere, but of course, the
better facilities of the dorms cannot
be duplicated.
House Organization
The organization of the houses is
the same as it was in the old dorms
with house officers, resident advisors,
and house directors, The few re-
maining upperclassmen are drafted
as staff assistants for the mainten-
ance -of order. Ranking highest in
house-planned activities are intra-
mural sports, arranged under the
directorship of Julian Frederick, re-
search associate in the physic depart-
ment. Of course parties, dances, and
coke dates with girls' dorms rate high,
The dorms were converted' from
seven of the fraternity houses taken
over by the University last spring.

Joyce Ann Teeple, on the basis of medical records, was not ex-
pected to see her first Christmas, but here she is looking forward to
her third. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Winston Teeple of Port
Huron, Mich., she weighed only 26 ounces at birth, March 17, 1941.
Born three months prematurely, the child is believed to be one of the
smallest infants in American medical history to have survived and
grown to be a healthy normal child.

Berlin Issues
Varied Reports
Of War Plans
Anything from Attack
In Balkans to Blow
In West Is Predicted
LONDON, Dec. 14. -The all-out
Allied war of nerves, synchronized
with the thunder of bombs on Ger-
man cities, is driving Hitler's propa-
ganda experts to the weirdest out-
bursts of the war.
The Nazis' reactions are running
the gamut from the threats of terri-
ble new secret weapons to embitter-
ed challenges to the Allies to "come
and get us."
All the Germans know for certain
is the Roosevelt - Churchill - Stalin
pledge at Teheran-that the Allies
will strike soon from the south, east
and west, and that "no power on
earth can prevent us from destroy-
ing the German armies."
Befuddled Berlin
In one breath, Berlin says the Al-
lied grand assault will spring from
Britain across the fog-shrouded Eng-
lish channel this winter, timed with a
great new Soviet winter offensive.
Thus, the Nazi-controlled Scandin-
avian telegraph bureau reports, "the
high command spokesman confirm-
ed that Germany's defenses in the
west are now considered much more
inportant than the defense of Italy."
Field Marshal Gen. Erwin Rommel
has been named anti-invasion chief,
the bureau reports, while the Ger-
man news agency DNB says the one-
time "Desert Fox" is making a final
inspection of German defenses along
the entire west wall from Norway to
southern France.
Breathless Berlin
Then, in the next breath, alarmed
by the American bombing of Sofia
and mytified over Turkey's inten-
tions, Berlin declares the main blow
will fall against the Balkans, with
British and American armies thrust-
ing across the Mediterranean to join
the Russians driving toward Ruman-
ia and old Poland from the east.
Immediately the German high
command is reported rushing de-
fenses on Cos, Leros, Samos and oth-
er Aegean islands off the Turkish
coast and massing troops along the
Turkish-Bulgarian frontier.
Bombed Berlin
In between these far -ranging
alarms, Berlin wails against the dev-
astating allied "terror attacks" on the
Reich capital and other German
cities, blandly forgetting the words
spoken by Propaganda Minister Paul
Joseph Goebbels in 1940 after the
Nazi bombing of Coventry: '
"We Nazis can only laugh at those
who complain about our bombers. A
Nazi has no sympathy. We leave
that to the degenerate democracies.
We Germans will bomb and bomb
and the cries neither of mothers nor
children will stop us from conquer-
