Army Leaders Say Draft Is
Needed for Post-War Force

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 12.- Con-
gressional advocates of a peacetime
draft said today Army leaders are
convinced the draft is the only way
a post-war military force of 4,500,000
"availables" can be maintained.
While the Army aas insisted that

Rajput Brush-Drawing
To Be Central Work
An exhibition of examples of 18th
century Rajput Indian art, spon-
sored by the University Institute of
Fine Arts, will open tomorrow and
continue through May 26 in Rm. B,
Alumni Memorial Hall.
The exhibit is centered around a
brush - drawing, entitled "Krishna
Dancing with the Milkmaids", which
has been loaned to the Institute by
the Brooklyn Museum. Mrs. Ralph
E. Gregg, who received her master's
degree from the University this year,
has used the hands of the dancing
girls in the drawing as models for a
series of 30 studies of various hand
The Detroit Institute of Fine Arts
has loaned a second drawing from
the same school entitled "Krishna
Sporting with the Milkmaids".
Another feature of the exhibit is a
tapestry .:zbroidred with dancing
figures, similar, although of a cruder
nature, to those of the brush-draw-
ing. Indian students on campus have
contributed several authentic Hindu
costupnes and pieces of jewelry, which
are being used as background mater-
ial for the drawings.
The exhibition is open to the pub-
lic from 2-5 p.m. EWT (1-4 p.m.
CWT) Monday throgA Friday, and
from 10-12 a.m. EWT (9-11 a.m.
CWT) on Saturday.
Auto Manpower
Available Soon
WMC Believes No New
Cars in Three Months
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, May 12-Edward L.
Cushman, State Director of the Wars
Manpower Commission, said todayi
that manpower for automobile pro-
duction will be available in the De-c
troit area within the next three
months but that he was convinced
car manufacture will not start on
July 1.1
The War Production Board has in-]
dicated it expects to give the car in-
dustry authorization by that date to
go ahead with car production.
At the same time George F. Ad-
des, Secretary-Treasurer of the Unit-
ed Automobile Workers (CIO) as-
serted that a number of factories
that formerly produced automobiles
and parts could be returned to such
production within three months. He
said the assembly lines in those
plants, because of the nature of war
production, need little change, and
"If the managements are interest-
ed in avoiding chaos and demoraliza-
tion, these changes can be done in a

T has no definite plans for the size
f the post-war military establish-
ient, it submitted to the House
nilitary cmmittee this week a writ-
ten statement containing these
"The active reserve will be com-
pcsed of those individuals and un-
its sufficient in types and numbers
which will, together with the other
componerts, constitute an over-all
balanced force in the Army of the
United States of four and one-half
million (4,500,000) men."
'that figure, an Army spokesman
said, is strictly "a planning figure"
and represents the - "availables" who
could be called upon in a future
emergency cr "M-Day"
Reserves, Guardsmen
Under present War Department
plans, committee members said, at
least 4,000,000 of the 4,500,000 would
be reserves and national guardsmen
and, if the entire quota is to be filled,
the reinaining 500,000 presumably
would Pre regular Army personnel.
The War Department issued a
statement last night, however, in
which it said it was "not the fact"
that it plans a peacetime standing
Army of 500,000 men.
"The size of the regular Army,"
it added, "ivhich the War Dpart-
mclt will recommend after the
war will depend upon the condi-
tion of the world, the commitments
of the United States at that time
and the military policy adopted by
the Congress."
Two Alternatives
Committee members represented
Army spokesmen as asserting there
were these two alternatives to the
building up of a huge reserve through
a peacetime draft law: an "inade-
quate" defense establishment, or a
huge standing Army which would
cost billions annually.
Hearings will start June 4 on
peac etime draft legislation broadly
requiring every able-bodied male citi-
zen to take a year of military training
as scon as he becomes 18.

Yanks Huint Japs on Corregidor
Two Months After Invasion

CORREGIDOR, Manila Bay-/P)-
More than two months after this fort-
ress island was invaded by American
paratroopers and amphibious forces,
a visitor still gets an escort. Some
die-hard Japanese soldiers still ling-
er in Corregidor caves.
The escort consists of a truck load
of helmeted, green-clad men of Maj.
Gen. William C. Chase's 38th Divi-
sion with carbines ready for instant
action. Near the point to be visited
they fan out, peering down slopes,
keeping eyes on cliff sides, wary about
Only a day before a group of
American war correspondents, tour-
ing Pacific bases, visited Corregi-
dor, soldiers came upon a Japanese
sitting near the shore, holding a
machine gun. The Yanks opened
up but he dived for a cave, pulling
his weapon after him. Grenades
were topped in but the foe, willing
to live a rat's life, probably was
safe within the recesses.
"If they were Germans, they'd know
the jig's up," said General Chase.
"But these dirty little Nips have to be
picked off."
A week before the correspondents
visited Corregidor, a group of sol-

diers, finding a shaft leading from a
cliff top to a big cave, poured oil into
it but before the fuel could be ignited,
Japanese in the cave committed sui-
cide by touching off the biggest explo-
sion yet to rock the island.
Corregidor, its barracks, its facili-
ties and structures such as Gen.
Douglas McArthur's demolished home,
is conquered. There's no mistaking
But the dirty, desolate business of
hunting the enemy night and day
co.nstitutes a capsule picture of what
is happening everywhere that Japa-
nese are to be found.

fluence making for separa-
tion and divorce will be the
hasty and ill-advised mar-
riages after the war. Many
young people will wish to
make up for what they
have missed of marital bliss
because of the war, and will
marry after only a short
acquaintance, courtship,
and engagement. Burgess

win of the season as his

hits off two Notre Dame
hurlers. Coach Ray Fisher's
nine trounced the Irish in
a style that has been char-

all season. Jack Barrett,
Notre Dame slow ball artist,
