tural relations, he said, must be

In Monday's lecture, Prof. Elmer
Mitchell of the physical education
department declared that the Uni-
versity's PEM program would cut
three months off the time which
the army will need to train men
who have not had such preparation.
He said that, besides the harden-
ing ..process, PEM has the value of
teaching skills which have military
value. A survey at the beginning
of the semester, he pointed out, dis-
closed the fact that one-fourth of
the men enrolled in PEM could not
swim, and that by the end of-the
term all will be able to swim.

chell said, "have regarded physical

Lone Survivor Describes Tug
Tragedy, Sevent-Mile Swim

By The Associated Press
STANDISH, AUG. 4-A 23-year-
old Bay City woman, her shoulders,
arms and legs rubbed raw by straps
of a life belt, recounted today how
she swam seven miles to shore when
a cruiser on which she and 12 others
were aboard foundered Sunday in
Saginaw Bay.
Apparently the lone survivor. Mrs.
Dorothy Repkie, gave the ficst de-

Ehrmann Claims
Britain's Defenses
Must Hold In Egypt
If holding the Egyptian front
means a continuation of defensive
tactics by the British, these tactics
should be maintained because Gen-
eral Rommet's forces must be kept
from advancing on Alexandria and
Suez, Prof. Howard M. Ehrmann of
the history department said in his
regular "Weekly Review of the War"
"It would appear," he said, "that
the British are unwilling to take any
real chances with Rommel before El
Alemein and that they are not going
to risk their tanks against the power-
ful German mobile army."
"Hitler's recent parading of troops
in Paris was tol give the impression
to the governments of Great Britain
and the United States that Germany
is ready to meet anything that comes
along and to serve notice to subject
peoples that Germany is still plenty
strong and plenty tough. This leads
one to believe that the Nazis are
taking rather seriously the prospect
of a second front in the near future,"
Prof. Ehrmann said.

From a red at the home of her
mother, Dirs. Jessie Trov'nger, in
Bay City, Mrs. Repkie told how
thoughts of her six-month-old son
kept her going as she struggled, ex-
hausted and numb, toward shore.
"God alone knows how I made it,"
she declared.
Even as she told her story search'-
ers brought word that the body of
her husband, Louis, 29, who accom-
panied her on the fishing trip, had
been found, his life jacket still
around him.
Her husband's body ,was one of
eight recovered by Coast Guardsmen
and sheriff's officers who searched
the bay by boat and plane.
The boat, submerged eight and
one-half miles southeast of Point Au
Gres, was located by airplane and
towed this afternoon to the East
Tawas coast guard station. It was
completely wrecked.
Mrs. Repkie said that an hour af-
ter the boat had capsized she, her
iusbanq and a Mrs. Raymond Bad-
our set out for shore.
"I led the three of us for awhile
and I finally noticed that Louis was
becoming discouraged," she related.
"So I swam back to him and asked
him to grab hold of the shoulder
strap on my life belt. But he told me
to go on, that it would only hinder

where I thought they were," she con-
tinued. "But I couldn't see either of
them or the boat and I didn't know
what to do. I remembered then that
Louis and I had said before that we
had to get home to our baby so I
struck out for shore again.
It was cold and my legs started to
knot up. My hands were numb. but
I just kept on going-I- don't know
why or how. Finglly my feet touched
"I didn't know whether I was on a
reef or near shore. It was pitch dark
and I couldn't see a thing."
Mrs. Repkie said she followed tire
marks in the grass to a fur ranch
near Greenwood, three miles from
the cabin, where William Woldring,
a guard at the Michigan State Re-
formatory at Ionia, and his wife
were vacationing. The Woldrings
gave her food, she said, and then
