A marriage of ir.nstitulioiis to pro-

President Alexander G. Rutihve i

"Specifically." Dr. Ruthven said.,
"I suggest that a close alliance be

Lt. Flegal was in the show bus-
iness from the time he graduated
high school until he entered the
Army in June 1942. He operated
dancing schools in Salt Lake City,
Denver and Los Angeles, produced
some shows along the west coast, and
operated some booking agencies. He
also worked for RKO, Loew Corp. and
the Pantagous circuits.
When he first, entered the Army
he hoped to get into specialized ser-
vice in order to continue with the
production of shows. He said that he
"fell in love with the infantry" and
therefore changed his mind.
He was commissioned as a second
lieutenant on Jan. 15, 1943 and was
recently made a first lieutenant.

Yan koff Escapes Death Many Times

of Sgt. Boris Yankoff of Co. A.
Sgt. Boris Yankoff's thrilling mili-

the time of the Russian Revolution
and continued through the invasion
of Manchuria, the bombing of Pearl
Harbor, the Battles of Guadalcanal,

Several times during his career he

The program will tentatively con-

tic averages and the extra-curricular

ers who were to land on the island of
"We had just gotten off the de-
stroyer and into a landing barge
when Jap bombers sunk the ship,"
Sgt. Yankoff said. "The Japs didn't
bother with the barge as they were
interested in larger boats.
"Once a captain, another fellow
and -I were walking together in the
jungles when a bomb hit close by.
The other fellow was thrown into the
jungles and received a concussion. It
took about two hours of searching to
find him. The captain and I were
both thrown about 15 feet. I thought
I had been blown to bits and felt for
my legs. I was surprised to find that
they were still there.
"Once when we were bombed dur-
ing the night I was thrown ten feet
and bounced off a tree. Another time
a Jap sniper shot at me from a tree.
The bullet grazed my head and land-
ed in the bank near which I was
standing. I picked it up and kept it
for a souvenir.
"I also have in my possession a
piece of shrapnel that missed my
head by just a couple of inches," he
"Once when we were sitting un-
der the cocoanut trees eating on
one of the islands, I noticed every-
one staring. Just then a heavy co-
coanut fell a few inches from my
head. It wasn't a pleasant experi-
ence, because I remembered that
the first man who was killed on
Guadalcanal was killed not by a
bullet but by a cocoanut.
"The landing had been made on
Guadalcanal without any casualties.
Right afterwards this man was
standing under a tree near the shore

members of the Michigan Senate
whistle at the girls they come a-run-
ning. You see, they are pages.
For the first time in 30 years, two
of the Senate pages for the special
session opening today are girls, hired

a week."

when a cocoanut fell out of it and
killed him. The trees are so high that
when the cocoanuts fall they are
very dangerous," Sgt. Yankoff said.
"About 75 Japs put up the last
resistance at Guadalcanal. They
started to fire at a sergeant, who
was my best friend, and at me. We
fell down in the tall grass. My
friend forgot to roll over, and so
the Japs, who had already taken
aim, shot him the moment he stuck
his head up.
"I tried to get his rifle, but the
firing was too thick, so I was unable
to. The next day we went back and
found that all the flesh had been
taken, off his body. After the Japs'
food supply was exhausted, they ate
not only human flesh but also every
lizard, snake or living thing they
could lay their hands on," he said.
Sgt. Yankoff's most recent "close
shave" occurred about Christmas
time. When he was in New Zealand,
he received orders to fly back to the
States to study. The plane he was on1
stopped at Hawaii to refuel. Sgt.
Yankoff's mother was living in Ha-
waii and, therefore, he did not con-
tinue the trip with the rest of the
party. He remained on the islands to
spend Christmas with his mother,
planning to take a plane a couple of
days later.
When he arrived in San Fran-
cisco just before New Year's, some-
one said to him, "You know you're
lucky. That plane you were in got
into trouble and couldn't find the
landing field. It crashed and every
person aboard was killed."

Prof. Rodkey
Advises Buying
Series E Bonds
Emphasizes Value of
War Bonds as Safest
Wartime Investment
The emphasis in the Fourth War
Loan drive on buying war bonds only
as a favor to the government is mis-
leading, Dr. Robert G. Rodkey, pro-
fessor of banking and investments in
the business administration school,
said yesterday in an interview.
He explained that the person who
buys war bonds is first of all doing
a favor to himself. Although invest-
ment in bonds is highly desirable
from the standpoint of patriotism
and control of inflation, it is equally
valuable from a selfish viewpoint.
Bonds a Safe Investment
Dr. Rodkey's advice to all those
who are looking for a safe invest-
ment, sure to bring returns, is to buy
Series E bonds. Without a doubt,
they are absolutely the safest invest-
ment possible, he said. In illustration
of his point he remarked, "There is
probably not a banker in the country
who hasn't bought up to the limit on
E bonds."
As an additional reason for invest-
ing in war bonds, Dr. Rodkey pointed
out that anyone who wishes to spend
his money now will find a poor selec-
tion of goods and will be forced to
purchase a low-grade quality of com-
modities which he would not buy
under other conditions. If the money
is put into bonds instead, a reserve
fund is built up which will purchase
goods of superior quality when the
war is over.
Series E Is Best
Series E bonds are superior to the
other types of bonds which are being
sold in this war. They yield a higher
rate of interest than the Series F and
G bonds and reach maturity value in
a shorter period. Also, they are not
affected by fluctuating market prices
as are the type of bonds intended for
purchase by banks, he added.
