Secretary Of War Asks
For Extension Of Draft
Patterson Declares World Peace Hinges
On Maintaining Strength of Armed Force
DETROIT, May 8-0P)-Secretary
of War Patterson declared tonight
in an urgent plea for extension of
the draft that world peace hinged
on keeping up the American Army's
He told the Detroit Bar Association
that the United States would have to
end its occupation of Germany and
Japan if the Army were permitted
to "dwindle down" and added in a
"If we pull out, the chances are
that we will be fighting a third
world war in the near future."

product covering cost plus a reason-
able product, does not recognize that
many of the costs in business today
are reconversion costs, Prof. Haber
said. It assumes that every business
man makes a reasonable profit on
each item he produces, whereas, ac-
tually, a loss sustained in producing
some products is balanced by a profit
in others. OPA policy has been based
on total production, he said.
Emphasizing that price control has
not been a failure, Prof. Jamison said
that without price control, the cost-
of-living would have doubled or trebl-
ed during the war period.

tends it, the War Secretary expressed
belief that the "safety of the coun-
try, and of every man, woman and
child in it, requires that selective ser-
vice should be extended."
If the act is permitted to expire,
he predicted a sharp drop in re-
cruiting with the result that the
number of volunteers would fall
far short of the Army's manpower
Patterson said further that "it
would be definitely hazardous to
couple with the extension, as the
House has done, a condition for a five
months' 'holiday' from selective ser-
vice and a condition exempting all
18 and 19-year olds.
"The fact is that if these ages are
excluded there will be only a handful
subject to induction," he contended.
"The Army's requirements in
manpower, if it is to do what the
country expects of it by way of pre-
venting another war, is a force of
1,550,000 men by July 1 of this year.
The requirement is estimated to
drop to 1,070,000 by July 1 of 1947.
"Those estimated requirements
represent the best judgments of Gen-
eral Eisenhower and they are the
minimum requirements. Not even the
most severe critic claims that they
are too high.
Patterson reported that the re-
cruiting campaign had brought in
730,000 volunteers in seven months
but noted that the rate had dropped
from a peak of 185,000 last November
to an estimated 60,00 in April. Fur-
ther he said that it was fairly cer-
tain that most short term enlistments
of 12 and 18 months would not have
taken place had the crait not been in

Having worn their caps and gowns'
in the ceremony for the first time,
seniors were for many years expected
to wear academic costume every Wed-
nesday until graduation. This custom
was dropped when the day for hold-
ing Swing-out was changed from
Wednesday to Sunday in an effort to
add solemnity to the occasion.
Solemnity was apparently badly
needed for a number of years. Fights
between engineers and lawyers often
enlivened proceedings, and as late as
1930 lawyers were drenched with
water as they passed through the
engine arch. Starting in the 1920's
seniors "considered it their duty to
imbibe freely before the ceremony".
Increased rowdiness brought warn-
ings against the "immoral taint";
threats of suspension "even at this
late date"; and finally, in 1934. can-
cellation of the tradition.
Upon the promise of honor societies
to maintain orderly Swing-outs, the
custom was revived in 1937 and con-
tinued until 1941.
If seniors are willing to participate
this year, seniors from all colleges
will meet at 4 p.m. June 5 on the

Monday and will continue until June
Designed to offer review opportuni-1
ties of the greatest possible practical
value to the physician in everyday
practice, the course is intended for
those physicians who have been in
general practice or who anticipate
establishing a general medical pract-
The course will includle clinics,
lectures, demonstrations, and ward

FOR BETTER FISHING:.
Work of Institute for Fisheries
Research Exhibited in Museum
New policies and practices in fish
management, concerning state re-
strictions on size limits, stocking and
fishing seasons, are being studied by
the Institute for Fisheries Research
of the Michigan Department of Con-
servation, in a series of experimental
projects on lakes and streams in the
southern part of the state.
The Fish Division of the Univer-
sity's Museum of Zoology, in coopera-
tion with the Division of Visual Edu-
cation, has arranged an exhibit in
the rotunda of the Museums Building
which explains one program of the
Institute for Fisheries Research.
Photographs, charts and notes, show
that overcrowding of lakes and
streams results in stunted fish, in-
dicating a need for thinning, not
stocking, of these waters.
Cold Kills Fish
Other photographs show that each
year, at the end of the season, many
thousands of fish are found in the
shallow lakes of southern Michigan,
killed by severe winters. This great

loss to fisherman reveals a fisheries
resource now unutilized.
The exhibit shows that certain
legal changes might improve trout
fishing. For example, in many cold
waters, trout grow slowly and die of
old age before reaching legal size. In
one stream the legal size has been
changed from seven to six inches to
test the possibility that such fish
might provide sport fishing.
Also on display through June 30,
are various scientific papers in a
summary of modern concepts of fish
management, besides sportsmen's
books such as "Angling Success,"
"American Game Fishes," "Northern
Fishes," and "Trout," and examples
of trout flies.
Changes Should Be Made
A summary of the various aspects
of fish management, entitled, "For
Better Fishing," has been published
by the Fish and Fisheries Division
of the Michigan Department of Con-
servation. The report describes, in
part, the broad fisheries research
program begun in Michigan 15 years
ago, stating that "Many millions of
dollars have been spent in the build-
ing and operating of hatcheries and
rearing ponds, in the stocking of
streams and lakes, and in the en-
forcement of laws. Relatively little
has been budgeted for research to
determine the need for such expen-
ditures and whether there were other
ways to produce better results.
"In the last decade the findings
of the fisheries biologists who have
been given increasing support in
their work in Michigan, have caused
us to question the value of much of
our past program, and we are now
convinced that changes in the pol-
icies and practices of the Department
of Conservation Fish Division should

Association Board of Governors and
their wives will be guests of honor
at the Lane Hall Coffee Hour from
4:30 to 6 p.m. tomorrow.
Faculty members of the Board
include Prof. William A. McLaughlin
of the French department, Prof. Saul
L. Cohen of the physiology depart-
ment, Prof. Paul G. Kauper of the
law school, Prof. Howard Y. McClus-
ky of the education school and Dean
Erich A. Walter of the literary college.
The student members are Joyce
Siegan, Wayne Saari and Phylis Eg-
gleton. Joseph C. Hooper and Wil-
liam M. Laird represent alumni.
The Adult Education Institute will
hold its 14th annual meeting next
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
at the Rackham Building under the
joint sponsorship of the University
Extension Service and the Michigan
State Federation of Women's Clubs.
The first institute was held in
1934 in Ann Arbor, at the sugges-
tion of Mrs. Grace Ferris Fraker,
a member of the Ypsilanti Wo-
men's Club. She proposed the idea
to Dr. Charles A. Fisher, then assis-
tant director of the Extension Ser-
vice, and they gained the approval
of the state convention of women's
clubs. At the first ,meeting, Dr.
James D. Bruce, vice-president of
the University, spoke on "The Uni-
versity and the State" and Dr.
Fisher discussed "The University
and Adult Education."
The list of speches which have been
given to the group since that time
follows closely the course of world
events leading up to the second
world war. In 1933 Prof. James K.
Pollock spoke on "The Present Situa-
tion in Germany" and Prof. Charles
Remer discussed "The Japanese Ven-
ture in China."
By 1938 the institute programs
had taken on even more of the color
of events shaping in the world.
That year Prof. Raleigh Schorling
spoke on "Education and Nazi Ger-
many," Prof. Artlur Aiton gave "A
Review of the Year in Spain," and
Prof. Slosson chose as his topic,
"Europe on Thin Ice." In 1939 Dr.
Walter Judd, now congressman for
Minnesota, discussed "The Signi-
ficance for America of the Japan-
ese Invasion of China."
America's part in the war was
mentioned for the first time in 1940
with an address by Col. Basil D. Ed-
wards on the national defense policy
of the United States. At the insti-
tute held .in May of 1941 the inter-
national situation was considered at
length concerning China, Germany,
Russia and the Balkans.
At the first war-time institute, in
1942, Prof. Slosson discussed "Eng-
land's Role in the War," Prof. Pol-

ferences and debates.
The society pledged a number of
new members at the meeting. They
will be initiated Tuesday.
