be given on Friday evening and Sat-
urday afternoon and evening, Jan.
19 and 20. in the main lecture hall
of the Rackham Building.
To Appear at Three Programs
The Budapest String Quartet, which
is generally conceded to be the out-
standing quartet of the day, will pro-
vide the music for the three pro-
grams. The quartet is composed of
four musicians, each a virtuoso in
his own right: Josef Roismann, first
violinist and the leader of the quar-
tet; Edgar Ortenberg, second violin;
Bo'ris Kroyt, viola; and Mischa
Schneider, violoncello.
The name of the group is both old
and eminent, and goes back many
years in the annals of European mus-.
ical life. Before joining the Quartet,
each of the artists acquired a musi-
cal background of richness and vari-

01 lardeni's StauIr ent
By 't i Associated Press
CHICAGO, Jan. ll----An army of-
ficer declared in an affidavit today
the manager of the Royal Oak, Mich.,
store of Montgomery Ward and Com-
pany asserted he felt that working
for the army under presidential or-
der seizing Ward properties wouldI
be "just as traitorous as service in
the German army."
The affidavit of Capt John J.j
McKasy was one of 26, all by army
officers, filed by the government
in support of its suit for a declara-
tory judgment upholding army seiz-
ure of Ward properties in 16 cities
on Nov. 28, and for an injunction to
restrain Ward officials from alleged
interference with army operation of
the facilities.
Capt. McKasp alleged Robert W.
Barden, the Royal Oak store man-
ager, made the remark Dec. 28 after
the army moved in and asked Baden
to accept a War Department appoint-
ment to continue in his job, which
he refused. The affidavit said Bai-
den asserted he did not recognize
any authority in the army to give
him orders.
Again on Jan. 2, Capt. McKasy al-
leged, the Army asked Barden toI
cooperate as manager under War De-l
partment jurisdiction but Barden
stated he would not so act and said
he would "just as soon be with Hit-
ler as to comply with yourrequest."

nation for two seats on the Board of

gan was shaping up.

"Well, it's nice to look back at
the pleasant things that did happen
in one's Army life, and I think of
all, the nicest was attending U. of M.
"England isn't so bad if it wasn't
because the weather is so damp and
it rains so much where we are at.
The towns and villages are very

WASHINGTON, 'Jan. 11-(P)--
Secretary Stimson, asserting that the
army has withheld no casualty fig-
tires, promises a report next week
on American losses during the De-
cember phase of the German coun-
teroffensive in Belgium.
He released figures today showing
that . army casualties since Pearl
Harbor have reached 564,351 on the
basis of reports compiled in Wash-
ington through December 29. These
figures, he said, reflect actual casual-
ties two or three weeks earlier. The
German drive intelgium and Luxem-

AP Newsfeatures WriterI
NEW YORK, Jan. 11-All's fair in
love and war, but if you want to be
fair to your love in this war, get his
valentine in the mail by Jan. 15.
The War Department says paper
cupids and hearts mailed after that
date may not reach the boys overseas
by Valentine's Day, Feb. 14. Only
cards sent in sealed envelopes by first
class mail will be accepted and it is
estimated that some 10 million will
be sent to servicemen this year.
The military and patriotic motif is
conspicuously absent from this year's
cards, which are mostly old-fashion-
ed and unashamedly sentimental.
The slapstick card of previous years
had been replaced by the "cutie va-
riety, current sales records, show.

This is incidentally, the first year
the word "wolf" has appeared on
valentines, the greeting card indu-
stry declares, and gives as a sample
of current howling verse:
"I don't mind being poor.
So long as you're the wolf outside
the door."
