Prepare To
Quit Capital
Reds 70 Miles
From Chungking
ese Government yesterday stream-
lined itself and prepared to aban-
don Chungking and follow its
armies as Red troops surged to
within 70 miles of the city.
Just when the signal to quit
Chungking would be given seem-
ed to be up to the oncoming Com-
munists. If they kept thrusting
from the northeast, east and south
} the hour may come soon.
THE DEFENSE ministry admit-
ted the Reds had laid siege to
Wulung, only 70 miles to the east.
(This put them 25 miles nearer
Chungking than they were 24
hours earlier.)
The ministry said other Red
troops moving up the Yangtze
Valley were near Chunghsien,
140 miles northeast of Chung-
Private reports said the Com-
munists from the south already
had taken Tsunyi. This city is 130
miles south of Chungking. Between
it and Chungking the road is good
and not very mountainous.

PREMIER YEN Hsi-Shan's an-
nouncement that a small mobile
cabinet was being set up was the
first clear indication that the gov-
ernment was preparing to abandon
Chungking. The capital will be
wherever this cabinet is function-
Acting president Li Tsung-Jen
still is in Hong Kong and on the
outs with Chiang Kai-Shek. Chi-
ang, who is here, has been try-
ing to get Li to return.
Each ministry in the mobile
cabinet will have no more than
100 employes. Yen said offices
would be established at an undis-
closed place in the rear to keep
the archives and handle routine
It is expected this place will be
Taipeh, capital of the Nationalist
island fortress of Formosa, off the
southeast coast.

REPRIEVED GOBBLERS--These turkeys, now rsiding at a nearby turkey farm, will NOT be grac-

They are being fattened during their reprieve period so that a mere glance at them will stimulate
the palates of any gourmet who may see them strutting their stuff next November.

South African Professor Says
U.S. Students Think Well

American college students know
how to "use their heads" better
than they themselves may realize,
a visiting English professor from
Johannesburg, South Africa, said
J. Y. T. Greig, professor of Eng-
lish language and literature in the
University of Witwatersrand, made
that comment on the perennial
college gripe that "they don't
teach us how to think."

most indecent about it."

Felc Papers
Acquired by
'U' Collection
More than 350 letters, papers
and manuscripts of Governor Al-
pheus Felch, an important figure
in Michigan's rise as a state, have
been acquired by the Michigan
Historical Collections at the Rack-
ham Building.
At first a resident of Monroe on
his arrival from Maine in 1833,
Governor Felch moved to Ann Ar-
bor ten years later where he lived
until his death in 1896. His home
at 116 N. State St. is still stand-

ANOTHER letter, dated "Mich-

Arbor. "Michigan" was the name
of the new State capital until the
legislature changed it to ,Lansing
in the spring of 1848.

"Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, Shah
of Iran, is a ruler capable of facing
the present-day problems of his
country," according to Prof. Geo-
rge G. Cameron, of the Near East-
ern studies department.
"This is because of both the
Gale Relative
Constructor of
fIran Railway
The visit of the Shah of Iran,
Mohammed Rez Pahlavi, will hold
special interest for Esson M. Gale,
Director of the International Cen-
ter, and Mrs. Gale.
For Charles J. Carroll, late hus-
band of Mrs. Gale's sister, engi-
neered the construction of the
railway across Iran that was the
life-line of U.S. supplies to Rus-
sia during World War II.
* * *
CARROLL graduated from Yale
in 1899 and immediately received
appointments for railroad con-
struction in Mexico, Haiti and
"In 1927 he was called to Teh-
aran where he so impressed
Shah Reza Pahlavi, father of
the present Shah, that he was
made Director General of the
Persian government railways,"
Gale said.
He was further commissioned to
complete the railroad line from the
Persian Gulf to the Caspian Sea.
"Only a widely experienced en-
gineer would have attempted this
task for it entailed the building of
a port in the desert heat of South
Persia," and cutting through the
rugged Elborz Mountains, Dr. Gale
* * *
THE RAILROAD marked the
first means of access to the capi-
tal city other than by canal or
pack train. It crosses the Iranian
plateau and finally reaches the
second newly constructed portof
Bandar Shah.
"Carroll assumed great per-
sonal risk in his construction
for he was finally captured by
bandits. However, the Shah in-
tervened any by holding the
families of these bandits as h3-
tages secured the return ' f
Carroll," he said.
However, the harrowing experi-
ence affected Carroll's health and
necessitated his return to the
United States in 1938. He died
here in 1941.
"It is also interesting to note
that the father of Victor Jamal,
one of the Persian students on
campus, was Carroll's associate,"
Gale pointed out.
Faculty Musicale
The Faculty Wind Quartet will
be heard today over WUOM in
the second program in a series of
broadcasts devoted to the music
of Mozart.
The "Quartet Concertante, K.
Suppl. 9" is scheduled for today's

valuable earlier training he re-
ceived from his father and his
scholastic career," Prof. Cameron

THE SHAH'S father, Reza Shah
Pahlavi became ruler of a land
taken of its resources by a number
of inept former rulers. It then
faced a titanic problem in utiliz-
ing its natural resources, Prof.
Cameron pointed out.
The elder Shah improved the
economic position of the vast
number of his subjects by utiliz-
ing those natural resources to
their fullest extent, Prof. Cam-
eron said.
In his efforts to improve com-
munications, he built numerous
railroads and constructed an ex-
tensive system of roads, Prof.
Cameron added.
* * '*
IN THE WAY of agricultural
assistance, Prof. Cameron con-
tinued, the present Shah's father
built huge silos and storage houses
for grain grown by the natives. He
also eliminated the importation
of sugar by setting aside large
pieces of land specifically for the
growing of sugar beets and by set-
ting up refineries within his own
He was very successful in
cleaning up theylarger cities by
constructing many new build-
ings, which, even though they re-
flected the past, contained all
the conveniences of modern
"Reza Shah Pahlavi, in bargain-
ing with the oil companies, got
good terms both for the individual
workers and the country of Iran
in general," stated Prof. Camer-
S* * *
THE ELDER ruler faced prob-
lems fearlessly and would accept
no excuses from his administrat-
ors. This brought a new attitude
into the government organization,
which behooved them to perform
tasks as rapidly and as efficiently
as possible.
His policies were remarkably ef-
fective, although his tactics were
not wholly acceptable to Western
powers and some of his own peo-
ple, Prof. Cameron said.

Are you thinking of giving HER a diamond?
ATURALLY, you will want to obtain a fine diamond ... one that will
reflect your pride and happiness in one another. Most of you will ask the
question, "How can I be sure that the engagement ring I buy is of fine quality
and properly priced?" It is important to seek the counsel of a jeweler you can
trust. We suggest you talk to your jeweler, visit with him, let him show you
his diamonds and explain some of the facts about the diamond . . . Then
evaluate his "know-how" and his integrity, just as you would seek the counsel
of a lawyer or physician.
We won't try to tell you that we can sell you a $100.00 diamond for
$50.00 . . that is positively -ridiculous. We can, for instance, show you a
1 carat (25 points) diamond of fine quality to sell for $125.00 tax included.
This past few weeks we have mailed to many of you, copies of a booklet
entitled "DIAMONDS-Their purchase and their care." It would be too
great a task for us to reach all of you. To those of you whom we have
missed, we invite you to stop in and obtain a free copy. We are confident it
will be well worth your time.
