And Stripes
Lisagor Describes
Activities of Paper
Sgt. Irvin "Pete" Lisgor, '39, an
ex-editor of The Daily and varsity
baseball player, revealed "inside
dope" on the London Stars and
Stripes, of which he is managing ed-
itor, in a recent letter to T. H. Tap-
ping, editor of Michigan Alumnus.
"Pete," a member of Sphinx, Mich-
igauma, Sigma Delta Chi and vice-
president of "M" Club, told of the
three exclusive enterprises of the
London edition of Stars and Stripes:
choosing the prettiest WAC in the
Kingdom, scooping British papers on
Roosevelt's re-election, and naming
an anonymous soldier as its man
the year.
Mis-identified GI
The last project turned out to be
a profitable "snafu," since much
publicity resulted from the mis-iden-
tification of the GI whose picture
they chose as representative of the
misery and hope of the fighting man.
The original soldier was listed miss-
ing in action, and the "wrong" man,
wounded and decorated three times,
was in an English hospital. The two
were close friends and great soldiers,
the investigation further revealed.
"All of which proved that GI Joe,
our Man of the Year, was indeed an
anonymous character, one of thou-
sands who might qualify for any
medals they'd care to give the joe
in the foxhole," Sgt. Lisagor com-
Published by London Times
The London Stars and Stripes is
published six days a week by the
"august London Times, the Old
Thunderer, and many of our most
amusing experiences come from try-
ing to acquaint the printers and
compositors with GI lingo. They're
used t the pontifical style of men
still practicing something like medie-
val journalism. Seriously, it's a fine
paper-one of the world's best," Sgt.
Lisagor wrote.

Discuss New Developments
The Geological Journal Club was
founded to acquaint students and
faculty with modern technical liter-
ature in the fields of geology and
mineralogy, and to discuss new de-
velopments in those fields. Members
are students and faculty members of
the Departments of Geology and Min-
At the meetings, held every two
weeks, there is a review of a techni-
cal book or article, or a report of or-
iginal investigation prior to publi-
"Mining in the Netherlands East
Indies" was published under the
auspices of the American Council
of the Institute of Pacific Relations,
and the Netherlands Information
Service. It is a technical survey of
the mining operations and methods
in use there.
Oil, Tin Produced
According to Prof. Senstius, the
most important resources of the
Netherlands East Indies are oil, of
which it produces 3 percent of the
world's supply, and tin, of which it
produces 20 percent. The tin is the
purest available in the world, but at
the present this supply is cut off
from the United States.
Other natural resources of the
islands are coal, of an inferior va-
riety, gold, and diamonds. Prof.
Senstius feels that the possibility for
leveloping the nickel and aluminum
industries there are very promising.
Local Parties
Oppose Vet Aid
Buffeted Bill Comes
Before House Tuesday
LANSING, March 22.-()-A sug-
gestion that "possibly local politi-
cians" were at the bottom of opposi-
tion to a bill which would direct the
State Land Office Board and State
Conservation Department to sell tax
delinquent lands to war veterans at
bargain prices of ten per cent of
assessed valuation was voiced to the
House of Representatives today.
The suggestion came from Rep.
Patrick J. Doyle, Dearborn Demo-
crat, as his bill advanced sufficiently
to be scheduled for a final vote
The bill has been buffeted and ac-
tion on it delayed repeatedly, finally
drawing from Doyle the protest that
"somebody in this House doesn't
want to give the boys '35 or 40 feet
of land." He made the statement as
Rep. Victor A. Knox, Sault Ste. Marie
Republican, moved to have the bill
sent to committee, where Doyle said
it would have been killed. Knox
withdrew his motion.
Knox later introduced a resolution
which seeks to ask the two agencies
to refrain from selling any tax de-
linquent properties for two years.

Third Army Tanks Overrun
Bad Kreuznach, Resort Center

Associated Press Correspondent
It is a land of women which Patton's
armored columns have been over-
running during the past few days.
The tanks have thrown anl iron net
around countless towns and villages
whose inhabitants had no chance to
flee, but they seem to be overwhelm-
ingly women, a few old men and
boys only emphasizing the absence
of German males.
Tanks are plentiful and there
are many men among liberated
foreign workers trudging or riding
trucks toward rear emergency
camps. The hundreds of trucks
carrying German prisoners rear-
ward roll swiftly through the vil-
lages, leaving clouds of dust and
the bewildered women.
The preponderance of women was
revealed when an AMG detachment
arrived in this health resort and va-
cation center whose normal popula-

tion is 30,000. The streets were crow-
ded with women silently watching
American traffic.
Others gazed woodenly at smoul-
dering fires from the latest bombing
by hit and run Luftwaffe raiders.
Bad Kreuznach already had been
severely pounded by Allied planes
and in the final onslaught of armor.
A few years ago Bad Kreuznach
would have seemed a tragically
battered city. But after Bitburg,
Pruem, Wittlich, Mayen and oth-
ers in the Third Army's path, the
first impression is of the large
Humber of houses still standing.
The AMG commander, Capt. S. M.
Brown, estimated there ere still 20,-
000 people here-mostly women and
children, many of whom were evacu-
ees from other bomb-ridden Rhine-
land cities.
Brown, a former school superin-
tendent, found the fear of the Gesta-
po still strong.

cine and men to the China-Burma-
India theatre.
A former graduate student at

has served with the Fourth Marine
Division at Roe, Namur and Saipan.
Another former faculty member,
was a physical education instructor at
the University before entering the

Following more than two years of
service in the China and India-
Burma theatres, for which he was
recommended to receive the Legion
of Merit, Capt. GEORGE P. SO-
LOVSKOY has returned to the'
