In London To Continue
Resistance; Alpine Units

LONDON, June 23.-(P)-The Bri-
tish radio broadcast a statement to-
night that the British Government
could "no longer regard the Bordeaux
Government as the government of
an independent country."
The announcer said that the Bri-
tish Government found that the
terms of the German armistice were
"in contravention of agreements
solemnly made between the Allied
governments" and reduced the Bor-
deaux Government "to a state of
complete subjection to the enemy

"The war is not lost," he said,
"Long live France!"
Petain Is 'Amazed'
De Gaulle, undersecretary of war
in Premier Paul Reynaud's Cabinet,
spoke shortly after Marshal Premier
Henri Philippe Petain in a broadcast
from France expressed "sorrowful
amazement" at Prime Minister Win-
ston Churchill's statement on the
British Government's "grief and
amazement" at France's acceptance
of Germany's armistice terms.
Alpine Army Carries on
It was reported from Chancy on'
the French-Swiss border that many
French units in the Alps facing the
Italian frontier were heading toward
Toulon today, seeking a way out to
North Africa.
General de Gaulle's London broad-
cast calling on Frenchmeh to carry
on was reported to have made a deep
impression on the French Alpine
Army-the only army France now
has that is intact.
Reports coming from the Balearic
Islands indicated that whole squad-
rons of French planes were winging
across the Mediterranean, presum-

announced that it would deal hence-
forth with a French National Com-

Under the armistice France is re-
quired to surrender her arms, muni-
tions and Atlantic coastline, and be-
comes in effect a passive ally of Ger-
many for the battle of Britain.

1940 GOP
Opens Today
Willkie's Growing Strength
Worries Opponents As
Delegates Await Hour
Philadelphia Filled
By Excited Throng
The apparently growing strength of
Wendell Willkie put all other Re-
publican presidential candidates on
the alert tonight, while an excited
throng of delegates awaited the con-
vening of the 1940 convention tomor-
Impartial samplers of convention-
eve opinion in the city's jam-packed
hotel lobbies came quickly to what
they considered an inescapable con-
clusion, that as of the moment the
battle lay between Willkie, Senator
Robert A. Taft of Ohio and Thomas
E. Dewey.
A lively watch was maintained for
any indications of a forming Taft-
Dewey combination, intended to
check the Willkie boom, while in
authoritative sources, it was learned
that the Dewey managers were work-
ing outta new strategy for the com-
ing battle.
It was simply to concentrate every-
thing on the first ballot. This in-
volved making all possible deals be-
fore the balloting begins, so that by
combining support to be obtained in
this way with the delegates pledged
to Dewey as the result of his state
primary victories an unexpected and
impressive showing of strength might
be made, and a possible rolling snow-
ball started. Behind such a move
lay the obvious factor that the
pledged delegates might slip away on
later ballots.
Willkie, himself, rumpled and busy,
was spotted shouldering his way
through the throng at the Benjamin
Franklin Hotel, and in a few brief'
sentences emphatically delivered his
opinion of the situation. His drive
was "coming along magnificently,"
he said. Then he added that he
would have support from all states
except three-Mississippi, Louisiana
and South Carolina-and, to cap it,
he would be nominated "damn quick."

It is a privilege indeed to wel-
come the students and visiting
members of the faculty to the Uni-
versity of Michigan for our forty-
seventh Summer Session. The
splendid cooperation of the regu-
lar members of the faculty in
building the program for thissum-
mer assures me of their desire to
make your sojourn with us pro-
fitable and pleasurable. I com-
mend to you the special lectures
and entertainments which have
been arranged for your enjoy-
ment. Any changes which occur
will be announced on the official
bulletin boards and in the col-
umns of the Michigan Daily. The
Daily will serve as your morn-
ing newspaper with brief ac-
counts of matters of national and
international importance :nd will
keep you posted concerning the
activities within our University
community. You should read the
within The Daily to inform your-
self concerning changes in class
schedules or other important an-
In addition to the plays, con-
certs and social occasions which
have been arranged, I recommend
to you the lectures which are an-
nounced by the committee in
charge of the Graduate Study
Course in American Culture and
Institutions. This course of lec-
tures begins July 1, and continues
throughout a period of five weeks.
A special emphasis has been
planned for each of the five suc-
ceeding weeks as follows: Region-
al Varieties of Cultural Develop-
ment, Religion and Education, Lit-
erature and Art, Commerce and
Industry, Government and Poli-
tics. The lecturers are outstand-
ing authorities upon the subjects
which they will discuss. In these
times of international stress, it
seems appropriate that we should
cherish the fundamental elements
of our American culture.
To you students who are regis-
tered in the stations away from
Ann Arbor may I express to you
also my wish for happy summer
work in your chosen fields.
