Dean Edmonson's Initial
Talk Warns Of War
Educational Conditions
Though faced with "some very
discouraging conditions," American
schools will have to learn to gear
themselves to the war effort, de-
clared Dean J. B. Edmonson of the
education school in the opening ad-
dress of the thirteenth annual Sum-
mer Education Conference Monday
in the University High School audi-
He warned members of the con-
ference that schools face some very
discouraging prospects in the war
period. Many teachers may feel that
their work is relatively unimportant,
and this belief may impair the effi-
ciency of instruction. Wartime also
may bring severe criticism from
those who desire to impose their
viewpoints on teachers, he said.
Teacher Shortage
Dean Edmonson predicted that
some rural schools may have to close
because of teacher shortages and that
instruction in physical education, in-
dustrial arts and sciences may be
restricted in some schools because
of the withdrawal of men teachers
to enter the armed forces or to ac-
cept employment in industry.
But, he declared, there is a bright
side to the picture, and he urged
school administrators and teachers
to seek to capitalize on the possible
opportunities that will be available
during the coming year. He said
that teachers will have increased op-
portunities to serve defense needs of
major importance, including the care
and protection of children and the
providing of improved instructional
programs in civic education.

When Japanese bombers attacked Dutch Harbor, U.S. Naval base i n Alaska, they were met with anti-aircraft fire that kept many of their
bombs falling wide of the mark. These geysers represent bombs that fel I harmlessly in the harbor. The ship in the background behind the geyser
at the left staved off attack with continued machine gun fire.

LANSING, July 21-Hinting at a
lack of public interest in matters
political during war times, the slim-
mest list of aspirats for state and
national offices to face Michigan
voters in many years was drawn to-
day as the deadline fell for the filing
of nominating petitions.
At the top of the tickets, the Re-
publican and Democratic candidates
for Governor found themselves un-
opposed within their own ranks.

Strike Draws
U.S. Mediator
FLINT, Mich., July 21-(AP)-Mov-

of war implements from the General
Motors Corporation Grand Blanc
Tank Plant, the War Labor Board
dispatched a mediator here, today,
while in Lansing, Governor Murray
D. Van Wagoner termed the delay
in production "a crime."
The strike, lacking authorization
from any source because there is no
recognized union at the plant, was
called July 15 after the management
had laid off 50 men who left their
jobs to smoke. There was a "no
smoking" rule at the plant.
Governor Van Wagoner, in his
statement, said:
"The loss of production may have
cost some lives of relatives of some-
one who should have been working
in that plant.
"It is a crime that any munitions
plant should be down even for an
hour, let alone seven days.
Tilford Dudley, principal media-
tion officer on the staff of the War
Labor Board, was ordered onto the
In telegrams to union and com-
pany officials, the Labor Board de-
clared the strike had seriously in-
terfered with vital war production
and that the War Labor Board was
prepared to finally determine the is-
sues in controversy.
