Officials Expect 750,000
To Answer Call Today;
Many To Be Drafted
Local Registration
Will Be At Armory
Washington, June 30.-(AP)-Men
newly come of age, some 750,000 of
them throughout the nation, will reg-
ister for compulsory military service
tomorrow with the chances increased
that they will be called the colors
within.the year.
Revising original estimates, selec-
tive service officials calculatedtoday
that the army probably would ask
for recruits at the rate of about 75,-
- 000 a month, instead of 50,000.
A heavy percentage is expected to
come from the ranks of those who
enroll tomorrow since members of
the military "class of 1941" are least
likely to be physically disqualified, or
Local draft registration for
students and townspeeople, will
be held. from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at
the Armory, on the corner of
Fifth Ave. and Ann St.
deferred because of dependents or
employment in vital defense indus-
tries.tries. Half of them, however,
probably will not be summoned be-
fore next summer.
The revised estimate of inductions
was based on the executive order by
President Roosevelt yesterday auth-
orizing service in the fiscal year
starting tomorrow for the maximum
of 900,000 selectees permitted by law.
Only about 650,000 have been sum-
moned in the fiscal year just closing.
The President's order was coupled
with official indications of intent to
release these at the end of a single
year's service.
Tomorrow's registration is for all
men who became 421 since the' initial
mass enrollnient of last Oct. 16 and
for men between 21 and 36 who
called to register then. These
"'strays," officials said, included a
few men discharged in the :nean-
time from the national guard or the
R.O.T.C. and men who were out of
the country.
Sometime in July a lottery is sched-
uled to determine the sequence in
which the new enrollees will receive
questionnaires. Probably this week
Selective Service Headquarters plans
to announce the method by which the
new registrants will be interspersed
with those already enrolled to give
all mathematically equal chances.
Modern, ar
Drops Time,
Space Factor
Industrialization of war has meant
the reduction of the number of great
powers and the elimination of popular
insurrection, time and space as fac-
tors in the outcome, Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department de-
clared in the first of a series of uni-
versity lectures at the Rackham Lec-
ture Hall yesterday.
Comparing the three world wars,
the Napoleonic Wars, the so called
First World War and the present
World War, Professor Slosson pointed
out that while there were many an-
alogies between the three, the under-
lying and greatest difference was in
the increased industrialization.
Since this increased industrializa-
tion Austria-Hungary, Italy, France
and even Russia have been removed
from the ranks of he first-rate na-
tions because they were essentially
agrarian countries and not highly in-
At the present time, therefore, Pro-
fessor Slosson explained, there are

only three great powers, Great Bri-
tain, United States and Germany.
With the conquest of the continent
b, Germany this has really developed
into a line up of a German-dominat-
ed continent against the English
speaking peoples.
Professor Slosson noted, however,
that in all three wars the cnflict cen-
tered around one aggressor state led
by a strong man and that each time

A Apropriations
Bill Is Passed
By Legislaturet
Signed by Governor Van Wagonerj
shortly after the close of the spring
semester was the Reid bill, giving the
University 'an increase of ,$327,000
over last year's allotment, but the
$500,000 appropriation for a general
service building was vetoed in the in-
terest of economy.
The Reid bill allows the University
an annual appropriation of $4,802,000,
an increase of seven and one-half
per cent annually over this year's
budget. In vetoing the service build-
ing appropriation, the Governor said
the University could build from its
general budget if it wished.,
The veto was one of many dealing
with proposed buildings for schoolsI
and institutions throughout the state,-
totalling altogether $2,460,000. The
Legislature may override these vetes
when it returns for final adojurn-
ment next Tuesday.
Ship Carrying
U.S. Marines

Red Cross Nurses Aboard;
No Deaths Are Listed As
Navy Confirms Sinking
WASHINGTON, June 30. (AP).-
The torpedoing of a ship bearing a
detachment of United States Marines
to London was confirmed today by
the Navy amid indiVations that two
Marines may have been lost, while
other sources disclosed that 17 Red
Cross nurses also had been aboard but
were saved.
In piecemeal manner, an incom-
plete account of the incident was
made public by various officials fol-
lowing the initial disclosure of the
incident yesterday by an authorita-
tive source who identified the ship as
the Dutch steamer Maarsden, now in
British service.
A brief Navy announcement, men-
tioning no loss of life, said that eight
marines, a major and seven enlisted
men, had been rescued but did not
say how many there were in all. The
official who first told of the sinking
however, said that then marines were
"Efforts are now being made," said
the Navy Department statement, "to
confirm at the earliest practicable op-
portunity information on theremain-
der of the passengers."
Sumner Welles, Acting Secretary
of State, first disclosed the presence
of the nurses aboard the ship, and
the Red Cross later reported them all
safe, with six already landed.

New facultymen appointed to the
E. Burklund of the engineering Eng-
Board bythe Regents are Prof. Carl
lish department, Prof. Hobart R. Cof-
fey of the law school, Prof. G. E.
Densmore of the speech department
and Prof. Merwin H. Waterman of
the business administration school.
Members whose terms expired this
year were Prof. Howard B. Calder-
wood of the political science depart-
ment and Prof. William A. McLaugh-
lin of the romance languages depart-
Continuing in office are Prof. Ed-
son R. Sunderland of the law school,
secretary of the Board, Dean Joseph
A. Bursley, ex-officio, alumni mem-
bers Lee A. White of the Detroit
News and Webb McCall of Mt. Pleas-
ant, and student members Chtrles
Heinen, grad., Harold Guetzkow,
Grad., and Karl Kessler, Grad.
The publications board, in chang-
ing its by-laws to conform to the
Regent's action, suggester further
changes in the composition of the
Board to the Regents. The proposed
Board would comprise four faculty,
two alumni and three student mem-
bers, as compared to the present
Board of six faculty, two alumni and
three students.
Previous to the Regent's action,
the membership of the Board was
four faculty and three student mem-
bers, and two alumni members with-
out vote.
The Board's action came as a cul-
mination of a year-long controver-
sy involving the Regents, publications
board and various faculty and stu-
dent groups. The Board of Regents
first took official action on the pro-
posed change last December. Fpl-
lowing the announcement of the ac-
tion May 2, 4,350 students and scores
of facultymen petitioned against the
revised by-laws. The University
Senate asked for a re-hearing of the
isuues involved at its last meeting of
the year last month, but the Board
of Regents made no move to re-
move the change, and made the new
faculty appointments at their meet-
ing of June 20.
Professor Burklund is chairman of
the department of English in the en-
gineering college. Professor Coffey is
in charge of the law library, Profes-
sor Densmore is chairman of the
speech department, and Prof. Water-
man is secretary of the business ad-
ministration school.

The appointments were made in conformance with the revised by4aws
of the Regents and of the Board in Control. The new by-laws, embodying
a change in the composition of the publications board, were drawn up by
the Regents and referred to the publications board.
The Board in Control of Student Publications, as a subordinate body of
the Regents, incorporated the change into its by-laws at a special meet-
ing held last Saturday.
