Fascists Riot
In Bucharest
Bands Roam Streets
Unchecked by Police
By The Associated Press
MOSCOW, Mar. 5-A Tass news
dispatch reported today that pro-
Fascist bands were rioting in the
streets of Bucharest and tearing pic-
tures of United Nations leaders from
buildings in the Romanian capital,
which has been without a government
since that of Prime Minister Radescu
resigned a week ago.j
The Tass report quoting the Ro-
manian newspaper Momentul said
that bands of legionnaires, protected
by Radescu's Ministry of the Inter-
ior, were racing through the streets
in automobiles, shooting up the
homes of democratic leaders, and
spreading panic among the popula-
(A delayed Associated Press dis-
patch from Budapest, filed Saturday,
made no mention of disturbances at
that time.)
The Russian press did not com-

Pressed into
Two Pockets
Stargard, Naugard
'aken by Russians
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Mar. 6, Tuesday-Rus-
Sian troops, anchoring their Pomer-
anian flank securely on the Baltic
coast, yesterday wheeled toward Stet-
tin and captured that port's outer
bastions of Stargard and Naugard,
while other Soviet forces to the
northeast cut deeper into two pock-
ets where possibly 200,000 Germans
were trapped.
Stargard Overwhelmed
* Overwhelming Stargard in a vi-
cious street battle that cost the
Germans 4,000 killed, the Russians
pushed on toward Altdamm, east
bank Oder River crossing town just
opposite Stettin and 15 miles west
of Stargard. Altdamm and other
localities ringing Stettin, Pomeran-
ian capital and Berlin's main port,
were reported under Soviet artillery
Naugard, 22 miles north of Star-
gard, also fell as the Russians folded
back the Germans into an 1,800-
square-mile pocket in which the en-
emy was battling with his back to a
45-mile waterline formed by the
lower Oder, Stettin Bay and the
Dievenow River.
Koberg, on the Baltic 65 miles
northeast of Stettin, also was being
stormed by Soviet troops "under cov-
er of a blizzard," Berlin said. The
enemy broadcast claimed that the
Russians had been held in the frin-
ges of the town, site of a large Amer-
ican prisoner of war camp.

-(M)-U. S. Marines grimly pressing
Iwo Jima's strongly-entrenched Jap-
anese toward the northern and north-
eastern cliffs made no major attack
Monday but broke up a number of
enemy attempts to infiltrate Ameri-
can positions.
Adm. Chester W. Nimitz said in his
communique today the battle lines
remained substantially unchanged as
the three divisions of Marines, who
hold two-thirds or more of Iwo, con-
solidated their holdings elsewhere on
the small but vital island where fight-
ing is now in its 16th day.

A GERMAN PRISONER STRIKES A FINAL BLOW-A German prisoner who exploded a grenade while
being searched by American captors lies dead on the ground (right center). Four doughboys have been
wounded by the blast. One, near the foot of tree at left, is struggling to rise, while the man standing
nearest him is unable to help because he has been badly wounded. The two other Yanks are but slightly
wounded but dazed by the blast.

U' Enrollment
Figures Total
Over 8,000
Fewer Servicemen,
More Civilians Listed
Latest but not final University en-
rollment totals, 8,111, reveal an over-
all civilian increase over the 1944
spring term of more than 15 per
cent while the number of students in
the armed forces has dropped slight-
ly more than 30 per cent.,
As The Daily went to press there
were 284 more men and 493 more
women enrolled this term as com-
pared with the 1944 total of the Mon-
day following the first days of regis-.
Because of the reduction of the
Army ASTP program, there Cas been
a net loss of 497 students.
Enrollment thus far includes: men,
1,862; women, 4,043; navy trainees,
1,282; army trainees, 924; total, 8,111.
1944 spring term registration in-
cluded: men, 1,578; women, 3,550;j
navy trainees, 1,241; arniy trainees,
2,239; total, 8,608.
Noticeable increases in the enroll-
ment of the Lit., Graduate, and Den-
tal Schools account for the larger
campus male population.

British Author
Wyndham Lewis, English author
and artist, will speak at 4:15 p.m.,
tomorrow in the amphitheatre of the
Rackham Building under the auspi-
ces of the English department on
"TolstoyhHemmingway, and War."
The author of many novels and
books of commentary on the modern
world, Mr. Lewis has been compared
by critics with both Swift and Rabe-
lais. "Tarr," a novel published in
1918, was one of the first indications
of the literary revolution to take
place in the next decade. Other nov-
les, most of which are satires, in-
clude "The Apes of God," "The Wild
Body," and "The Childermass."
Describing his work, Prof. Bredvold
of the English Department said, "His
satire is broad and vigorous, and his
style modern. But he attacks what-
ever he considers nonsense, whether
it is found in the conservative Eng-
lish middle class or in the cults of
the ultra-moderns."
Second semester freshmen or
higher who received at least a C
average during the fall term are
eligible to tryout for the Michigan
Daily this semester. There will be
a tryout meeting ' for news,

Besieged Nazi
City Seen. in,
Allied Gras
Yank Push Forces
Garrison to Retreat
See MAP, Page 2
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Mar. U tanks drove
more than a mile today into the tot-
tering Rhineland metropolis of Co-
logne, seized one-fifth of it, and the
largest German city ever to be storm-
ed by the Allies seemed virtually
within American grasp.
The charge of American tanks from
the north to within two miles of the
big Hohenzollern bridge in the heart
of the city forced the remaining Ger-
man garrison-estimated by one staff
officer to number only 1,000 men-to
fall back.
Other Forces Smash from West
Other American forces were sma-
shing in from the west, and a flying
column began cutting three miles
southwest of Cologne to complete
the encirclement. This. column last
was reported about five and a half
miles from the Rhine south of Co-
Cologne, fourth largest city in Ger-
many, was undergoing a terrible or-
deal of fire, and a pall of smeke hung
over it as massed artillery laid down
shells before the advancing armor
and infantry.
Largest City in Rhenish Prussia
Cologne is the largest city in Rhen-
ish Prussia, normally with a popu..
lation of 768,000 which ran her once-
busy war factories, but most of the
civilians had fled now or cowered in
basements as the battle swirled a-
round them.
Simultaneously, the U.S. Ninth
Army struck into the center of the
shrinking Rhine pocket to the north,
fighting into Rheinberg, one of the
chief ferry points for an estimated
50,000 German soldiers trying to
fight their way to the east bank of
the river.
Seventy Miles of West Bank Seized
American and Canadian armies
had seized control of 70 miles of the
Rhines west bank between Cologne
and the Dutch border, and the Ger-
mans were hemmed into three slen-
der pockets in the remaining 20 miles.

be the subject of an address to be
given tomorrow at 8 p. m. in Lane
Hall by Dr. Amos Hawley of the
University sociology department, un-

Dr. Hawley, who has participated

tion, will consider the re-education of
the peoples of the world to rid thei

in a superior race as a possible plan
for future peace.

throughout the country on Racial
Amity and has addressed two pre-
vious Baha'i assemblys on the sub-
ject, will be chairman of the discus-

Chinese Government Awards
Scholarships to Mitchell, Booth

Mary Anna Mitchell and Phyllis
Booth have been awarded the first
two scholarship sat the University
granted by the Chinese government
for the study of Chinese civilization.
The scholarships pay $1,500 and
may be renewed if satisfactory work
is done for a total of three years.
Their purpose, according to the Chi-
nese Embassy at Washington, is not
so much to train Americans for work
in China as to acquaint foreign lead-
ers in this country with Chinese civil-
From Six Universities
Only six universities have been ask-
ed by the Chinese government to give
the scholarships: Michigan, Harvard,
Yale, Columbia, Chicago, and Cali-
Although it could have given five
scholarships this year, the University

felt that only two of the applicants
met the high standards it intends to
maintain for these awards. Miss Mit-
chell, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
O. A. Miller of Flint, is a senior on
campus and has taken Chinese, Chi-
nese art, English and sociology.
Grad Student
Miss Booth, 1216 Prospect, Ann Ar-
bor, is a student in the graduate
school. She was born in China at
Chefoo, Shantung province which
now is occupied territory. Her par-
ents are Mr. and Mrs. William C.
Booth, who were Presbyterian mis-
sionaries in the Orient. Miss Booth
knew Chinesebefore she did English
and considers herself a product ofj
Eastern and Western civilization. She
came to this country when she was
17. At the University she has major-
ed in Oriental Civilizations.
