bustled briskly through the band-
playing and cheering fanfare of its
opening ceremonies and recessed to
meet again tonight and hear its "key-
note" sounded by young Gov. Harold
E. Stassen of Minnesota.
In his speech Stassen called on his
fellow Republicans to lead the Na-
tion forward on four broad fronts
to supplant what he termed a seven-
year record of Democratic "failure."
Attacks Third Term
"The saddest chapter of the last
four years," he said in the keynote]
address for the party's Natoinal Con-
vention, "has been that the national
administration instead of keeping its
eyes, statesmanlike, upon the wel-
fare of the people of this nation, has
turned its political gaze upon a third
The youthful official proposed an
"advance with a decisive and de-
termined step" in national prepared-
ness, "Fifth Column" defense, dom-
estic economic welfare, and govern-
mental ,effectiveness and integrity.
On each of these fronts, he asserted,
the Roosevelt administration has
'No Help For Allies'
Touching on foreign policy, Stas-
sen said in his prepared speech that
"future welfare cannot best be served
by simply burying our heads in the
sand," but he added:
"We are too woofully weak to give
the Allies that material assistance
this nation wants to give them.
"Let us determine and define where
our interests lie," he urged. "Clearly

Michigan's Jack Emery fired a

Emery was three strokes back of
Minnesota's blond Neil Croonquist,
who shot the first nine in 33, and
then came home in 37 to post a
two under par 70, the best mark of
the first day's firing. Croonquist,
who is also president ofdthe Inter-

ley, featuring faculty-student dis-
cussion of world events, will be held
July 19-20, according to an announce-
ment made yesterday by Helen Cor-
man, '41, general chairman.
The Summer Parley, an institu-
tion inaugurated during the 1939
Summer Session, is an extension of
the parleys held each winter and
spring during the regular school year.
The parleys were designed primarily
to bring together faculty members
and students for an informal con-
sideration of significant current hap-
penings. They are sponsored by the
Student Senate.
In addition to Miss Corman, the
main chairmen for the Summer Par-
ley include Tom Downs, '40L, per-
sonnel; Norman A. Schorr, '40, steer-]
ing committee; Anabel Hill, '41, pos-
ters and programs; Margaret Camp-
bell, '42, secretaries, and Chester1
Bradley, '42, publicity. These per-I
sons will take charge of the general1
arrangements for the Summer Par-
The subject of the war will be the
general topic of the Summer Parley.
At the first open session four view-1
points on the war will be presented1
by faculty members: one on limited'
intervention, another on complete
participation, a third on non-inter-
vention, and the fourth on the paci-
fist attitude toward the present con-
Following this opening session, the
Parley will be divided into four panel
discussions: the national elections,
education, religion and civil liberties.
Each of these topics will be consid-
ered in its relationship to the war.
At the final open session, an attempt
will be made to integrate the vari-
ous subjects discussed at the panel
More than 40 faculty members
have been invited to participate in
the panel discussions. Each panel
section will have a student chairman
and several student advisers. These
persons will be announced later in
The Daily.
Comedy Opens
Of Drama Club
The MichigantRepertory Players
will open their twelfth annual sea-
son tomorrow night wi a produc-
tion of "The Critic," oy Richard
Brinsley Sheridan. The curtain will
rise at eight-thirty. Performances
will also be given Thursday, Friday,
and Saturday nights. A large cast
has been assembled and prepara-
tions, which have been underway for
more than two weeks, will have
been completed by then. The play
is under the direction of Dr. William
P. Halstead of the speech depart-
ment, which sponsors the Players.
Valentine B. Windt, Managing Di-
rector of the Players, has stated
that the revival of "The Critic" is
especially appropriate because of a
nationwide interest in the eighteenth
century just at this time. Theatre
groups all over the country are do-
ing revivals of other Sheridan plays
as well as plays of the period by
Goldsmith and others.
Elaborate sets, costumes and chor-
eography, the latter under the direc-
tion of Ruth Bloomer of the De-
partment of Physical Education, help
to make the production a spectacular
pageant as well as a highly effective
More than fifty actors will take

(From Associated Press Dispatches)
For millions of French citizens
outside the shriveled territory left
to that vanquished nation by Ger-
man-Italian armistice terms, to-
night's cease-firing order will have
little real meaning.
The continuing war between Bri-
tain and the Nazi-Fascist Allies
makes a potential air battlefield of
all coastal France, both east and
west, and all of her vast industrial
life taken over by the victors in mili-
tary occupation - everything in
France except the meagre area in
which her surrendering government
holds sway.
The rupture of relations between
Britain and the Petain Ministry in
France which accepted German ar-
mistice conditions means just that.
By that act, still to be formally con-
summated by Britain, the grief and
amazement expressed by Prime Min-
ister Churchill at the form of French
capitulation is in process of transla-
tion into grim deeds. It accounts for
British official publication of a sum-

mary of the German armistice terms.
The Petain Ministry appears to
have agreed to turn over its war
plants .in German occupied regions
which include the whole French
coastline facing England, and the
major industrial cities and towns
that produced weapons for the
French armies.
It also has agreed to surrender
its coastal fortifications in working
order; to afford the victors full and
free access to its roads and railroads
in order that German and Italian
forces may be shuttled back and
forth across France as the exigencies
of the war with England require.
With French signature of these
terms, all of those war making fa-
cilities in France became legitimate
targets of British attack as would
the French fleet and merchant ma-
rine if the ships should seek to com-
ply with an order of surrender or in-
ternment by the Petain Government.
The British Government and navy
could not reasonably be expected to
accept the German pledge to refrain
from using the French fleet if sur-

Davis To Give
History Sketch
Of University
Educator's Speech First
In Series Of Lectures
In University High
"Highlights in the History of the
University of Michigan" will be the
topic of Prof. Calvin O. Davis of
the School of Education as he opens
the series of lectures sponsored by
the School for the Summer Session
at 4:15 p.m. today in the University
High School Auditorium..
Professor Davis will trace the de-
velopment, organization and admin-
istration of secondary education in
Michigan and from the founding of
the University in 141. Sketching
the significant trends from colonial
denominational schools to the pres-
ent state institutions, Professor Da-
vis will point out the change is tak-
ing place in the growth of the Uni-
versity since it opened its doors to,
seven students in 1841. Expansion
of the University's services through-
out the state and nation and the
growth of Michigan alumni will also
be cited.
As the senior member of the
School of Education faculty, Frofes-
sor Davis -has served as secretary
of the school and editor for many
years of The North Central Associa-
tion Quarterly.

BERLIN, June 24.-(1)-Germany,
with Fuehrer Hitler offering thanks
to God, announced tonight the end
of the war against France and the
Reich single-mindedly swung its at-
tention toward England for an on-
slaught which one informed source
said "will be like nothing the world
has ever seen."
By pre-arrangement with Italy,
the high command ordered German
arms down six hours after Germany
was notified that France and Italy
had agreed to an armistice. Thus the
cessation of hostilities was ordered
for 1:35 a.m. tomorrow (6:35 p.m.
EST Monday).
Flag Displayed
Hitler, in a formal proclamation
read to the people who had been
called to their radios, declared:
"In humility we thank God for his
The Fuehrer ordered flags dis-
played for 10 days and bells rung
throughout the Reich for seven days.
The "cease fire" order marked the
end of a six-weeks campaign which
brought France, Belgium and The,
Netherlands to their knees. He had
acquired all the coastline facing Bri-
tain from the Arctic in Norway to
the Spanish border,,.
Prepares For England
When Hitler unleashed his power-
ful war machine against the 'Low
Countries and the Allies on May 10,
he proclaimed in an order of the
day that it was the beginning- of a
fight that "decides the fate of the
German nation for the next 1,000
Preliminary preparation for the
great drive against England included
further advances by German forces
in France, extending the Nazi grip
on coast vantage points useful
against British seapower, and a tour
of inspection by Grand Admiral
Erich Raeder to make certain that
Nazi naval units and naval facilities
were ready for the word "Go!"
Polish Support Britain
In Fight Against Nazis
LONDON, June 24. - Supported
by a wandering Polish army and
die-hard French leaders in exile who
claimed to speak for the French
fleet and empire, Britain prepared
grimly tonight for Adblf Hitler's
next onslaught.
Arrival of the Polish forces from
France was disclosed by General
Wladyslaw Sikorski, the Polish
Prime Minister.
In a broadcast he declared "the
great body of our armies, safely back
from France, is landing on the shores
of Great Britain," and will "continue
to fight, shoulder to shoulder, with
the powerful British Empire for a
free and independent Poland."
The size of the surviving Polish
forces, driven across half of the con-
tinent since last Sept. 1, was not
Britain barred the export of all
goods to French territory in Europe,
including the island of Corsica.
With Britain pushing steadily to
strengthen her home defenses, Har-
old Nicolson, Parliamentary Secre-
tary to the Ministry of Information,
asserted in a broadcast that "the day
will come, and not so very far dis-
tant, when the air will be under our
command." British resources, he
said, would permit this.

Americans Must Understand
Nazi Methods, McDowell Says

Work Begins At Camp Davis;
Practical Experience Offered

Americans must clearly understand
Germany's methods of non-military
penetration in the Near East, if they
are to cope effectively with the Fas-
cist menace in this hemisphere, Dr.
Robert H. McDowell, research asso-
ciate in archaeology, declared -yester-
This penetration, economic and
ideological in character, has been
almost completely successful in the
Balkans, according to Dr. McDowell,
so that Yugoslavia, Rumania, Greece
and Bulgaria are today dominated by
the Nazi regime.
Dr. McDowell pointed out that the
economic penetration is actually a
policy of "nibbling," and is based

tiously. Its prime purpose at all
times has been to make the economy

Included among the effective in-
struments of ideological penetration
has been 'the propagandizing work
carried on by the Nazis among the
,students throughout the Balkans and
the Near East, Dr. McDowell con-
tinued. The ideological penetration
has often accompanied the economic
penetration, he pointed out, as can
be observed in the operations of the
economic commissiones and the tech-
nical experts which work in foreign
countries out of Germany.
Since Latin America occupies an
economic position in respect to the
European continent analagous to
that of the Balkans in respect to
Germany, the United States must
decide what it can do to fight back
the threat of Fascist penetration in
that sector, Dr. McDowell declared.
Latin America's economic goods
are needed by Europe, and Latin
America "must export or die," Dr.
McDowell stated. Though Washing-

Jackson Hole, Wyo., is the site of
Camp Davis, oldest of the four. Camp
Davis was established in 1874 under

and surveying.
The surrounding vicinity offers op-
pertunities for study of strata and
structural formations in the nearby
