"The peop1e of this country defi-
nitely know there is a war on, con-
trary to previously informed impres-
sions," Lt.-Col. Allison Ind, who is
spending a few days at his home in
Ann Arbor on convalescent sick
leave after 42 months of continuous
service in Pacific combat areas, stat-
001. Ind, who was with the forces
bcsieged on Bataan peninsula and at
Corregidor, managed to leave the
Philippines just ahead of the Japa-
nese when Gen. MacArthur was
ordered to Australia.
Aew formr mee of the Ann Arbor
author of a recently published book,
"Bataan the Judgement Seat." A
combination of tropical illnesses and
fatigue, brought him to the States
a- month ago for a prolonged rest.
He maintained that his trip across
the continent convinced him that the
home front is, on the whole, doing its
share in the war effort, and that fact
impresses itself immediately on any-
one returning to America after a
prolonged absence in a war theatre.
"I have seen such a generally
splendid spirit manifested by the
great majority of the people that any
G.I. Joe from the Rhine to Leyte
g'ulf would gladly if grimly take up
one more hitch in his mud-caked
web belt and figure it was plenty
worth the works," he stated.
There are the goldbrickers in any
outfit, he declared, but they are their
own worst enemies, and the country
In School Strike
GRAND RAPIDS, Dec. 11-(/P)-
Maintenance workers tonight reject-
ed an ultimatum by the board of
education to return to their work or
lose their jobs in a strike that threat-
ens a complete shutdown of the
Grand Rapids schools system.
Operating with skeleton staffs
under police protection, many of the
city's schools remained open today
but Frederick Read, president of the
Building Service Employes Interna-
tional Union (AFL) predicted tonight
that the entire school system would
be closed by Tuesday afternoon.
The walkout, voted Saturday and
made effective this morning, is a
climax to a year-old dispute over
wages and hours. The union de-
mands a 40-hour week with time and
a half for overtime and a general
20-cent an hour increase. Under
diansrreceive $38.5 afo 1aad55-hur
week and assistant custodians $32.50
for a 50-hour week.
The Board of Education stated it
could not meet the demands of the
workers because of a lack of funds.
Last February the maintenance
workers staged a five-day strike that
interrupted the school work of ap-
proximately 20,000 school children
before the matter was submitted for
arbitrsition and the employes were
subsequently given a 65-cent an hour
will win through in spite of them,
certainly not because of them.
Col. Ind, who will leave soon for
further hospitalization, hopes to get
back into the swing of things in time

Captain Ret urns
Ensign George Ceithaml, captain
of the University football team dur-
ing the 1942 season, arrived in Ann
Arbor yesterday for a brief visit
after seeing action in the Mediter-
ranean and at Cherbourg on D-Day.
Ceithaml is staying at the home
of Dr. A. W. Coxon. A graduate of
the University in 1943 with a major
in economics, Ensign Ceithaml en-
tered active service with the Navy
right after graduation and took his
midshipman training at Notre Dame.
Although the main purpose of his
trip here is to visit the coaches, play-
crs, fraternity brothers, and friends,
he noted that, among other things,
"the Theta Chi house is full of
women now and there is a younger
set at the dances." Other than those
things, he said that "State Street is
still the same and the Union is un-
changed." To a casual visitor such
as he, the University's basic self has
remained the same.
He has participated in battles off
the coast of North Africa and Sal-
erno, and saw action at Cherbourg
as a member of a landing craft.
