Sale of Bonds
hI Couty Is
Slowing Down
District Is Still Short
$6,158,750 of Local
Goal, Leaders Reveal
The county war bond drive, which
seemed to be getting off to a flying
start in the first few days, is now
slowing down considerably, according
to latest reports.
With $6,158,750 yet to go toward a
goal of almost seven and one-half
million dollars, campaign leaders are
a little worried.. Sales of Series E
bonds are lagging behind. An audit
yesterday revealed that for the first
time in the drive, sales of Series E
bonds were surpassed by other types.
The importance of investing in war
bonds was stressed yesterday by Gen.
Brehon B. Somervell and Gen. George
C. Marshall.
"The Fourth War Loan is an ur-
gent call on our people to continue
support of the armed forces of Am-
erica," Gen. Marshall said. "The
time has arrived in this war when the
home front must make a maximum
effort surpassing anything we have
thus far."
Gen. Somervell emphasized that
the attack upon our enemies must
be sustained by the weapons which
we are enabled to purchase with war
bonds. He said, "All Americans are
called upon now in this crucial mo-
ment to invest their full share in the
mounting offensive."

Co. 0 Leads
ASTP in Drive
Company G of the 3651st Service
Unit leads all other ASTP units in
the Fourth War Loan Drive, having
already collected money for $3,500
face value of bonds.
Although it leads all other ASTP
units, Company G is not outdoing
the Judge Advocate Generals' School.
The JAG school is determined to stay
in the lead, and Company G is at-
tempting to see that the JAG's do
not hold that lead for long.
Each man iii the company is asked
to purchase at least one $18.75 bond
over their usual monthly allottment.
If a member is unable to purchase
a bond, he is urged to buy as many
war stamps as possible. Bonds and
stamps may be purchased in the ord-
erly room through Lt. Samuel Riez-
man, company commander.

Pfc. Joachim de Haro of Co. C,

ever, it still takes him more than
15 minutes to walk from the Union

"A bicycle would solve all my prob-
lems," Pfc. de Haro said, "and I
would greatly appreciate it if some-1
one who isn't using theirs would lendt
it to me for about a month."t

Large Enrollment Is Expected
At Saiuer Geological Cam"Ip


"Despite transportation difficul-
ties, courses are scheduled as usual
for next summer at Camp Davis,
Wyo., and a large enrollment is ex-
pected," Prof. Armand J. Eardley,
Director of Geological Field Work at
Camp Davis, said recently.
"The courses are designedfor two
classes of students, those who are not
interested in geology as a profession
but who desire cultural experience
and appreciation of scenery, and
those specializing in geology who de-
sire training in basic field methods.

Panel Debates
On Nationaism
"With the present economic set-up
we cannot escape from the kind of
nationalism that leads to war," Prof.
John Shepard said yesterday at a
Post-War Council panel on national
In contrast with his panel asso-
ciate, Prof. Roy Sellars stated that
the main factor in the making of the
small European state was the politi-
cal-cultural background of the peo-
ple concerned. Prof. George Kiss,
third member of the panel, argued
that states were formed by and for
the benefit of the few men who, in a
small state, could be "big fish in a
little pond."

Dr. Rabel at
Birthday Tea
German-born Dr. Ernest Rabel,
prominent in international law, was
the guest of honor at a tea com-
memorating his 70th birthday yes-
terday in the International Center.
He has published several books,
taught in a number of European
universities, was a judge in the Per-
manent Court of International Jus-
tice at the Hague from 1925 to 1928
and was for 11 years director of the
private international law division of
the Institute for Comparative Law
in Berlin.
This, he said yesterday, is what he
considers the most important work
he has done. The Institute was
founded for work in the sciences, but
after the last war two divisions for
legal service were added, public in-
ternational law and private interna-
tional law. It was the latter that Dr.
Rabel directed.
It was the largest law library in
Europe and they published many
works and trained a staff of young
lawyers for international relations
through the study of foreign law.
Dr. Rabel emphasized the impor-
tance of this aspect of the work and
stated that their first intention was
to further international relations
which are often hampered because
of legal reasons. He said he hoped
that we might some day have a simi-
lar organization here.
He is now working on the first
volume of a study of Comparative
Conflicts Law. Dr. Rabel came to
Ann Arbor three years ago.
At the tea he was presented with
a Festschrift publication by Max
Rheinstein and Hans Julius Wolff,
compiled in honor of the occasion.
This collection contains works by
many of Dr. Rabel's friends and one
by his son.

owner A. W. Gallup's request to the
city council for re-zoning of the lot.
Present city zoning laws prevent the
building of a filling station in the
area which is restricted to single

Residents who are opposed to re-
zoning plan to appear at a public
hearing Feb. 7, where the petitions
will be presented. Among those who
have signed petitions are, Mrs. F. B.
