Jobin Interprets
French Affairs
In Final Lecture
Believes Dissension
Caused Her Downfall
Unity and better preparation might
have postponed the defeat of France
in 1940, Antoine J. Jobin of the
French department, declared in the
sixth and final lecture of the Cercle
Francais at 4:10 p. m. yesterday in
Alumni Memorial Hall, but he con-
tinued, "40,000,000 Frenchmen
against 80,000,000 Germans and 45,-
000,000 Italians could not have held
out long."
The morale of the French people
was low in 1938-9, he said, and with
internal dissension and too many
factions within the country a more
serious state of affairs resulted in
France because of its location next
to Germany than in other democra-
cies where a similar situation was
The French in 1917-8, Prof. Jobin
ascertained, had great faith in Wood-

To Be Available
To Student Body
Selesnick Promotes
New Campus Project
To incorporate the library of the
Hillel Foundation into a reference
collection for the entire student body
is the prime function of the recently
reorganized Hillel library committee,
directed by Sheldon Selesnick, '46.
"Rather than limit the library
shclves to works primarily of in-
terest only to Jewish students, it
is our plan to have all students feel
that in this library they can find
a handy source of all kind of read-
ing material generally applicable
to their college needs," Seh'siick
affirmed yesterday.
Organized on a whole committee-
subcommitee basis, the library group
will, after setting the library in
workable order, catalogue present
books and select and acquire new
books, working partly through pub-
lishing contacts. They plan also to
check the required and supplemental
reading lists of campus courses of
governmental, historical and socio-
logical natures.
"Because the library committee
is already one of the largest at the
Foundation, it serves too as an ex-
cellent social oiganization, in which
all students, and especially the
newer ones, may develop the abil-
ity to work together in harmeny,"
Selesnick declared. This secondary
objective is a logical outgrowth of
the plan to make the library an
all-campus function, he pointed
As a social organization, the com-
mittee is preparing a program of
dances and parties and other out-
ings, with a picnic already scheduled
for early April. Although first set up
through Hillel, the committee's ac-
tivities purpose to increase its scope
so that it will not be limited merely
to that organization.
Some 25 students who form the
library committee have already be-
un work on the objectives of the
group. Selesnick has asserted that
there still remain enough projects
for four or five additional sub-
committees. Those who are inter-
ested in the twofold purpose of the
committee are invited to the gen-
eral meeting at 3 p.m. today at
the Foundation.
r. Clarke To
Give Address
Dr. George Leonard Clarke, ma-
rine biologist, will speak on "A Con-
sideration of Oceonographic Methods
for Great Lakes Problems" at 4:15
p. m. tomorrow in the Rackham Am-
phitheatre. The address is under
the sponsorship of the Zoology and
Geology Departments.
Lantern slides and a 16 mm.. film
will be used to illustrate important
physical and biological aspects of the
Great Lakes. Employing his vast

studies made in the Great Lake re-
gions. The speaker has explored

extensively in the areas of the West
Indian and North Atlantic Oceans.

Deeb Condemns
O bjector's Camp
'Intolerable Conditio'
Eists at Germfask
GRAND RAPIDS, March 27-(M)-
U. S. District Attorney Joseph F.
Deeb said today that unless certain
changes are made in the operation
of the camp for conscientious object-
ors at Germfask, Michigan, he would
"ask that the camp be transferred
from this judicial district."
"I do not hold National Selective
Service Headquarters in any way at
fault," Deeb told newsmen, stating
that an "intolerable condition" at the
camp had resulted from highly-edu-
cated conscientious objectors "com-
ing under the supervision of men
unable to cope with them."
Camp Germfask, which is located
in the ,Seney Wild Life Refuge, is
sponsored by Selective-Service and
operated by the Department of the
Interior. It has been the scee of a
long list of "incidents" including de-
sertions and one instance in which
objectors destroyed canned food-
stuffs and broke dishes.
Deeb advocated a change in ad-
ministration policy at the camp as a
means of curtailing the number of in-
dictments against interned conscien-
tious objectors.
