Petitiong for
E 'enior Posts
To End Nov. 29
Petitions for senior offices in the
class of 1945, College of Engineering,
are due in the student offices of the
Union before 4:30 p.m. Wednesday,
Nov. 29.
Instead of electing separate offi-
cers for each of the three classes
graduating next year (in February,
June and October), the students
chosen in the coming election will
officially serve for the entire year,
thus making the graduates members
of one large class.
Officers to be elected from the
candidates who turn in petitions will
include a president, a vice-president
and secretary. Specific offices will
not be voted for, but the three candi-
dates receiving the highest number
of votes from the engineering stu-
dent body will automatically assume
"It is quite probable that at least
one of the students elected will not
graduate until next October, thereby
keeping the unity of administration
throughout the year," Francis X.
Nutto, '45,,vice-president of the en-
gineering council, declared.
Any engineering student who will
have graduated by next November is
eligible to run for the senior class
offices, if he complies with the Uni-
versity eligibility rules. Petition
forms may be picked up any day
from 3-5 p.m. in the student offices
of the Union.

Daily to make use of responses.
About a year ago, Howard H. Peck-
ham, Curator of Manuscripts in the
Clements Library, was commissioned
University War Historian and charg-
ed with collecting all material relat-
ing to the University's war activities
which will eventually be used in a
history of the University during the
war period.
Iork on this mammoth history
has already begun, and what may
be the first chapter, entitled "Be-
fore Pearl Harbor," has already
been written and was published
last week in the Michigan Alum-
nus Quarterly Review. Historian
Peckham, eager that the history
include all important aspects of
the University's part in the war,
asks that students and members of
the faculty freely recommend,
through letter and 'letters to the
editor' of the Daily, material and
information that might be included
in the history.
In his article, "Before Pearl Har-
bor, The University of Michigan in
the Period of the National Emergen-
cy," Peckham traces in detail the
changing attitudes of campus groups,
faculty and student, toward our par-
ticipation in this war and the step-
by-step preparations taken by the
University to prepare students for

It's Christmas time in the nations'
post offices.
Although Kris Kringle's yearly vis-
it is more than a month away, al-
ready postal employes are 'helping
him handle his large volume of civil-
ian Yuletide presents.
Kringle, quoted in a dispatch from
his international headquarters at the
North Pole, in conjunction with
Postmaster-General Frank Walker,
has urged all civilians to "Buy Now!
Mail in November!" He maintains
that he will have too darn many
packages to try to deliver them all
on the eve of Dec. 24.
And with the manpower situation
being what it is, he says that the
post office can't possibly deliver all
the packages on time either, if they
aren't mailed out pretty soon.
"The civilians have been pretty
good about mailing their packages
early," Kringle declared, whistling a
strain from Jingle Bells, "but it
would help a lot if more of them
would do the same."

CIO Decides
TO Reaffirm
No Strike Rule
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, NOV. 21-Following
close upon the heels of a fervent plea
by CIO President Philip Murray, the
600 delegates to the annual conven-
tion today unanimously reaffirmed
their no-strike pledge for the dura-
tion of the war, and thus headed off
any possible revolt against its terms.
The resolution, which had not been
expected to reach the floor until to-
morrow, was read at the afternoon
session, and when the reading was
completed, Murray came to his feet
with his plea that delegates maintain
"the integrity of labor."
"Our people can't regard lightly a
pledge of this description," he said
slowly and solemnly, "it is a sacred
pledge made to the people of the
United States that it shall be our

German 19th ArmyThreatened in
Allied Encircling Drive on Rhine;

French, Yank
Troops Pass
By Sarrebourg
Forces Spear North
Through Mulhouse
By The Associated Press
SHAEF, Paris, Nov. 21.-French
and American troops of the Sixth
Army group battled into the citadel
city of Mulhouse and drove well be-
yond Sarrebourg to within 27 miles
of the Rhine today in great encirc-
ling movements that threatened to
pocket the entire German 19th army
with its back to the river.
French First Army armored forces
speared into Mulhouse in a race
northward from their footholds on
the French side of the Rhine near
the German-Swiss-French border to
cut off the Germans between the
Vosges Mountains and the river.
Unconfirmed reports said the French
already had continued on to Comar,
22 miles north of Mulhouse.
Capture Sarrebourg
U.S. Seventh Army troops some
75 miles northward drove due east
through the Vosges, captured Sarre-
bourg and thrust six miles farther
and took Mittelbronn, near the en-
trance to the Saverne Gap that leads
through the forested mountains to
the Rhine plain. The 44th division,
whose presence was disclosed only
yesterday, led that push in action so
fluid that front dispatches said a
definite front -could-not be defined
from moment to moment,
On the northern end of the green
western front the Allies still were
advancing, but it was a savage slug-
ging match in comparison with the
fluidity in the south.
Army Lineup
From north to south, the lineup of
the six Allied armies was:
The British Second Army on the
northern flank ground slowly ahead
in the Geilenkirchen area and chop-
ped deeper into the German-held
sector west of the Maas River in
The American.Ninth Army surged
within sight of the Roer River in an
advance of two and one-half miles
that .enveloped nine towns in 24
hours, including Laurenzsbert, Eng-
elsdorf, Ederen and Merzenhausen.
They were a little over a mile from
the Roer.
The American Third Army merged
its holdings inside Germany to a
continuous 11-mile front running
southeast from near Besch, solidify-
ing its hold on some 25 square miles
of enemy soil despite heavy artillery
fire and masses of road-blocks, mines
and anti-tank ditches.
