THE MICHIGA.-N DATLY
Work or Fight
WASHINGTON, Dec. 11,- (P)-
Selective Service acted swiftly today
to put into effect the government's
"produce or fight" directive.
It instructed local draft boards
that present occupational deferment
regulations should be applied "in the
light of the immediate urgencies for
men in the armed services and the
civilian war effort."
The instructions followed a call by
War Mobilizer James F. Byrnes for
"increased drafting of older men not
contributing to the war effort."
To Draft Older Men
Meanwhile, draft director Lewis B.
Hershey said, regulations are being
amended to channel to military ser-
vice all registrants under 36 who drift
from essential jobs. These revisions
will be announced by the end of the
week, a spokesman for the agency
Because military requirements have
been met largely'since last May with
men under 26, few older men have
been called even though they may
have turned to peacetime work.
Hurled at Reds
Armor, Troops Defend
Budapest from Soviets
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Dec. 11-Moscow an-
nounced tonight that the Red Army'
had captured only two towns imme-
diately northeast of Budapest today,
indicating the Germans were hurl-
ing all their available manpower and
armor into the defense of the flam-
ing Hungarian capital.
The fierceness of the struggle was
reflected in the Soviet communique's
report that 35 enemy tanks were de-
stroyed yesterday, bringing the total
bag since Friday to 144 tanks knock-
ed out and 75 planes destroyed.
The Paris and Algiers radio had
carried reports that Red Army van-
guards had penetrated Budapest, but
the broadcast Soviet communique
listed only the capture of Szada and
Veresegyhaz, both 81/2 miles from the
capital's northeastern suburbs.
On the central Slovak frontier the
Russians extended their front reach-
ing toward Bratislava and Vienna by
capturing Hont, three miles west of
the road and rail junction of Dregel-
ypalank, taken Sunday.
On the south the Russians were
within five miles of the capital.

One thing is to be noted in partic-
ular, namely: the University as a
state institution is exempt from Fed-
eral taxation on transportation and
in case any person pays such tax the
Business Office is not permitted to
reimburse him therefor. Ticket
agents selling tax exempt tickets will
require of the purchaser a tax ex-
emption certificate. These certifi-
cates may be had at the Business Of-
fice, Room 1, University Hall, from
Dr. F. E. Robbins in the President's
Office when approval of travel requi-
sitions is secured, or at the office of
Deans or Directors of schools and
colleges. The certificate is University
Form No. 5805. (Do not let any
ticket agent who is inexperienced or
not fully informed argue you out of
the right of exemption for employees
of states. If he will take the trouble
to look the matter up in his tariffs,
he will find you are right.)
Be sure to tell the ticket agent that
you require- a tax exempt ticket at
the time you ask for your ticket. Fail-
ure to do this will require the making
out of new tickets and will be un-
economical both in time and in pa-
per. Our over-worked railway em-
ployees should not be put in a posi-
