Dies Describes
Huge Sabotage
Effort In U.S.
Submits To President List
Of 17,000 'Affiliated'
With German Groups
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Aug. 15.-Chair-
man Dies (Dem.-Tex.) of the specialI
House Committee on Un-American
Activities sent to President Roosevelt
today a document which he said dis-
closed efforts of the German High
Command to establish a "huge sabo-
tage ring" with headquarters at Chi-
Simultaneously, he submitted a list
of approximately 17,000 names of
persons who, he said, "have been
members of or otherwise sympathet-
ically affiliated with German organ-
izations which have supported the
Nazi cause in the United States."
Dies said the document, written in
Germany in January, 1941, "eman-
ates from none other than Walter
Kappe, who is now being sought as
Hitler's master spy in the United
He wrote the President that the
committee, which four years ago this
week began its investigations, had
warned in 1938 that it was "the pur-
pose of the German American Bund
'to set up a sabotage machine, which,
in the event the United States should
go to war, might seriously cripple our
industries, our systems of transpor-
tation, and our systems of communi-
cations unless the United States gov-
ernment takes militant steps to put
an end to this sabotage activity'."
"That warning," said Dies, "has,
of course, been dramatically justified
by the recent landing on our shores
of a group of eight Nazi saboteurs,
all of whom had connections with
the German American Bund."
The Texan said that "despite the
published reports of our committee
. . . our enemies, who have from the
beginning included many scoffers
who hold high positions in your ad-
ministration, have done their utmost

Detroit' Story
Is Ripped Out
Of life' Issue
Five Pages Are Removed
From Magazines Sent
Over Canadian Border
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Aug. 15.-Martin R.
Bradley, U.S. Collector of Customs
here, said today he had received or-
ders to tear out of the Aug. 17 issue
of "Life" magazine five pages con-
taining an article captioned "Detroit
Is Dynamite" before permitting cop-
ies of the magazine to cross the in-
ternational border to Canada.
The order arrived too late, Bradley
said, to stop the transportation of
100,000 copies of the magazine to
Windsor. Ont., across the Detroit
River from Detroit.
He said he had notified W. R.
Johnson, Commissioner of Customs
in Washington, that these copies
crossed the border prior to receipt
of the stop order.
Bradley said that in several cases
Friday and today, customs officials
stopped persons carrying copies of
the magazine to Canada, and tore
out the five pages before returning
the magazine.
In New York, C. D. Jackson, gen-
eral manager of Life, expressed sur-
prise at the action.
"Heretofore peripheral censorship
by the Bureau of Economics has
never included Canadian shipments,"
Jackson said. "It has been under-
stood that Canadian and United
States censorship would be exercised
equally, with special emphasis of
restrictions in the circle outside the
territorial United States and Can-
"On Tuesday, we submitted copies
of this week's Life, which is pub-
lished on Friday, to the Bureau of
Censorship. We went over the De-
troit story word by word and phrase
by phrase, making certain changes.
But at no time was the Canadian
question broached."
Jackson said that he understood
shipments had been held up tem-
porarily at Seattle, entry point to
Vancouver, and at Pembina, N. D.,
entry point to Winnipeg.
Ayres Ends Training,
Is 'Excellent Soldier'
BILENE, Tex.; Aug. 15.-(P)-Pri-
vate Lew Ayres has completed his
basic army training at Camp Barke-
ley's medical replacement training
center with the praise "excellent sol-
dier" bestowed by his commanding'
The erstwhile Dr. Kildare of the
movies reported here in May after
leaving a conscientious objectors'
camp to enter noncombatant service.
Six pounds heavier despite his veg-
etarian diet and hard work under a
blazing sun, Ayres awaits permanent
assignment in the nation's armed
forces with his blessing from Briga-
dier General Roy C. Heflebower,
Commander of the medical center:
"According to all reports -reaching
my office he has been an excellent
soldier and I am confident he will
render valuable service before his
army career ends."

Because of some misunderstand-
ing regarding the action taken by the
IFC House President's meeting on
August 7, Secretary Paul Wingate
yesterday urged all fraternity men to
familiarize themselves with the fol-
lowing regulations:
1. That all who attend the 1942
Summer Term and similar terms in
following years, and who meet all
requirements for initiation, will be
eligible not only for pledging in the
fall but also for initiation after De-
cember 10.
2. That all who attend the 1942
Summer Term and similar terms in
following years, will be allowed to
room in the house of the fraternity
they pledge immediately after pledg-
ing, providing that initiation require-
ments have been met and there is no
other binding room contract.
3. That all who make the hours,
grades, and honor points now re-
quired for initiation be eligible and
allowed to room in the house of any
fraternity to which they may be
pledged, immediately after meeting
such requirements.
4. That eligibility rules in regard
to depledging be suspended for the
summer term only.
5. That each unaffiliated man re-
siding in a fraternity house this sum-
mer shall sign a contract with the
fraternity agreeing to abide by all
the University approved chapter
rules regarding conduct and other
regulations such as study hours.
The Council also ruled unanimous-

ly at this meeting that all organized
freshmen will be required to wear
"pots", as suggested by the Wolver-
ine's group.
Ray Powell, Kappa Sigma, was
elected head of MFODistrict II to re-
place Dick Twitmire, no longer in
school, and a standing rushing com-
mittee was set up with the following
men in charge: John Zimmerman,
Chi Psi, chairman, Bert Weiss, Pi
Lambda Phi, Ross Clark, Acacia,
Herb Howerth, Lambda Chi Alpha,
and John Wiess, Sigma Phi.

The Iron River girls gave a party

The folks from Iron River have
shown a warm interest in the for-

an annual affair.
Final Bluebooks were handed in

dormitories, study hall, office and

while the three newly erected cabins

Unluckily at this time, the girls were
not treated to a sight of the mother

have come to be quite friendly to
the foresters in these cabins.

Michigan Alumn us'
Describes Library
Collection Increase
Figures appearing in the August
issue of the Michigan Alumnus re-
veal collections in the University li-
braries have grown until they are
nearly three times as large as they
were 21 years ago when annual re-
ports began to be made on library
According to the figures the rate
of additions to the libraries has
shown a general increase. The num-
ber of periodicals has nearly doubled.
Recorded use of books in all the
University libraries, excepting the
Law Library, has usually ap-
proached, and in five years, passed
the total number of books. In the
last three years there has been a
falling off in book use which library
officials can only explain as due to
wartime uncertainties which have
led to an increase in student dis-
cussion and a decrease in research.
