Of Post-War Economy

The machinery of war-time eco-
nomic controls must be continued
after the present war and must be
gradually transformed into instru-
ments for the regulation of a new
economic order if the nations of the
world are to prevent a chaotic up-
heaval, Prof. John B. Condliffe of the
University of California prophecied
yesterday in his lecture in the Gradu-
ate Study Course in Public Policy in
a World at War.
It is inconceivable, after the ex-
perience of the last post-war period
that any country can again risk the
social insecurity of vast and pro-
longed unemployment, Professor Con-
liffe continued. To cope with the
needs of a stricken post-war world
in which government has collapsed
over large areas will call for immense
energy and almost superhuman ad-
ministrative skill. This problem may
be long delayed, but it may come
upon us very suddenly.
Social Security
In the post-war economic order, an
extended form of social security with-
in the nation will be of primary im-
portance. The main instrument by
which the governments will seek to
ensure such security will be public
expenditure made possible by expan-
sionist monetary policies, according
to Professor Condliffe. To prevent
such policies from getting out of con-
trol post-war governments must con-
tinue rationing and some form of
planned production.
The restoration of freer interna-
tional trade would go some way to-
ward alleviating the reconstruction

and production problems of both bel-
ligerent and non-belligerent areas,
but if this trade is to be soundly based
it "must be based upon reciprocal ex-
change. rather than loans.
"The essential problem will be to
keep prices high in the creditor coun-
tries so that debtor nations may ex-
portin payment of their obligations
and yet allow these debtor countries
to depreciate their currencies to a
controlled level," Professor Condliffe
further pointed out.
Sectional Sacrifices
"Unless the United States proves
ready to make the sectional sacrifices
necessary if she is to become the cen-
ter and controlling force in a new
international trading system," Pro-
fessor Condliffe cautioned, "there

Getting Jobs

Of Talk Today
Bureau Of Appointments
Will Sponsor Meeting
In Science Auditorium
Opening a series of three lectures
on "Why People Do Not Get Jobs,"
the Bureau of Appointments and Oc-
cupational Information, is sponsor-
ing a meeting at 7 p.m. today in the
Natural Science Auditorium.
Following an explanation of regis-
tration, a period will be devoted to
"Course Obstacles," showing by dem-
onstration and slides the difficulties
job seekers are confronted with be-
cause they have not taken courses
in school for which there is a de-
mand in excess of the supply.
The slides will show the relation-
ship between the demand for teach-
ers in certain fields, and the number
available for positions. Also, better
fields, those in which there are fewer
competing for jobs, will be depicted
so that prospective teachers may
receive an idea of the opportunities
they will have by majoring in sub-
jects for which there is a definite
The demonstrations will show ac-
tual office scenes in which jobs are
not secured because of wrong courses
in school.
Two more lectures will be pre-
sented along the same topic the fol-
lowing Tuesdays in the Rackham
Lecture Hall. The second lecture
will deal with "Undesirable Person-
ality Traits," and the third with
"Why People Do Not Hold Jobs."

Roosevelt Reports Historic
Act To Congress As Aid
To Hemisphere Defense
Germans Announce
Capture of Cernauti
WASHINGTON, July 7.-4VP)-In a
swift, historic move, American naval
forces arrived today in Iceland to re-
lieve the British of the task of guard-
ing that strategic island in the north
The step, disclosed by President
Roosevelt in a special message to
Congress, provided the United States
with an armed outpost within 700
miles of the British Isles and defied
Germany's designation of the area
as a war zone.
Mr. Roosevelt told Congress that
"forces of the United States Navy
have today arrived in Iceland in or-
der to supplement, and eventually to
replace, the British forces" which
moved in there in May, 1940, to pre-
vent the Germans from gaining a
The President added' that he had
"issued orders to the Navy that all
necessary steps be taken to insure
the safety of communication in the
approaches between Iceland and the
United States, as well as on the seas
between the United States and all
other strategic outposts."
The momentous development, hailed
by the British Foreign Office spokes-
man in London as "one of the most
important and significant events of
recent months from our standpoint,"
was taken upon the invitation of
Prime Minister Hermann Jonasson
of Iceland, who acted apparently at
British inspiration, which presum-
ably followed consultation with the
United States.
Jonasson recounted in a message
to Mr. Roosevelt that on June 24 the
British Minister "explained that Brit-
ish forces in Iceland are required
elsewhere." The Minister added that
the United States, upon invitation,
was prepared to send replacements.
On July 1 Jonasson sent his invi-
tation, conditioned upon guarantees
that the sovereignty of Iceland would
be respected, and laying "special
stress on there being sufficient air-
planes for defensive purposes wher-
ever they are required."
Nazis Claim Cernauti,
Stalin Line Broken
(By The Associated Press)
BERLIN, July 7.-Penetration of
the Stalin Line at several places was
claimed by the Germans tonight, and
authorized sources suggested that
Adolf Hitler's legions might be ham-
mering at the last barrier to a deep
sweep into Russia's vast interior, de-
spite sharp resistance of the Red
The Nazis also announced the fall
of Cernauti, formerly a part of Ru-
mania, which had been occupied by
the Russians.
There was no mention of the Sta-
lin Line in the high command com-
munique, but DNB (official German
news agency) said German units ad-
vancing from the Volhynia area, west
of the Russian Ukraine capital of
Kiev, had broken Russia's steel and
concrete obstacle to invaders from
the west.

Young boys from the University
Fresh Air Camp on Patterson Lake7
will be stationed at various points
on campus tomorrow to give the
famous tag with the picture of the
"Little Boy on the Diving Board"
in exchange for contributions to the
Fresh Air Camp fund.
The fund goes to provide summer
vacations for four weeks away from;
city streets for under-privileged boys
from Ann Arbor, Detroit, Jackson
and Flint. More than 300 boys are
sent to the camp each summer.
Two tag days are held each year,
one during the regular session and
one during summer school. Both
campaigns are under the direction
of Prof. F. N. Menefee of the Depart-
ment of Engineering Mechanics, di-
rector of the University Fresh Air.
The Camp was founded in 1921,
and since that time has grown from
a small cluster of tents to the mod-
ern, spacious camp located on the
shores of Lake Patterson in Living-
ston County. The Camp offers op-
portunities for a life close to nature,
as well as many modern recreational
A dual purpose is served by the
annual summer camp. Not only are
under-privileged boys given a real
vacation away from city streets-
"the time of their lives"-but an
opportunity is afforded to study the
problems of boy nature and boy psy-

13th session of Camp Filibert Roth,
the summer camp of the School of
Forestry and Conservation, was offi-
cially opened at 6 a.m. Monday, June
30 when Axel, the camp cook, began
to pound a rhythmic reveille on the
iron triangle used to summon the
students to meals.
Despite the unaccustomed early
hour, the forty-odd embryo foresters
climbed from their bunks without
hesitation, anxious to taste the flap-
jacks and maple syrup so temptingly
described by previous students. Some
of the boys had already found sleep-
ing difficult since a voracious porcu-
pine noisily gnawing on a bechn had
roused them during the early gray
hours. A few hardy souls braved the
chilly waters of Golden Lake for an
early morning swim. Most of these
pre-breakfast dips, however, were
found to be the result of rash pledges
made in weaker (and warmer) mo-
While still busily engaged in mak-
ing the "delectable disks of dough"
(pancakes) disappear, some of the
gang were surprised to see, through
the window, two deer standing not
far from the mess hall. Golden-
browned bass caught in the lake the
previous day by plug-casting (not
chewing) students completed the bill
of fare. To make the wild life story
complete, two bears were later dis-
covered in the garbage pit.
Following breakfast, work began
in earnest. Students started their

George S. Kaufman's and Moss'
Hart's comedy, "George Washington
Slept Here," will open a four-day run
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow.
The comedy, the second produc-
tion of the Michigan Repertory Play-
ers of the Department of Speech, is
partially based on the experiences of
Mr. Hart. It describes the conflict
between a farm-loving husband who
buys a country place somewhere in
Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and his
city apartment-loving wife.
The city wife seems to be in the
right during the major portion of the
play, for all the possible disasters
that afflict gentleman farmers afflict
