PEM Program Puts
'Future"Officers in
Shape for Sea Action
At the end of the semester ther
will be 1,500 sailors and marines i
fighting condition as a result of th(
Navy V-12 PEM program on campus
The directors of this V-12 physical
training program are doing their bes
to get these "future" officers of the
Navy in shape when the time comes
for them to go to sea.
Exercises Start Early
At three minutes after six in the
morning the exercises start. These
calisthenics last until six-thirty and
include all of the killers of a physical
fitness program, such as pushups,
squat jumps, four-forty, and the
body-bending exercises.
Getting up in the morning is only
one half of the program, as the sail-
ors and marines attend another of
these sessions in the afternoon. The
second half is divided into three
shifts, the first meeting from 10 a.m.
to 12 noon. the second from 3 p.m. to
5 p.m. and the last from 4 p.m. to
6 p.m.
Second Session Is Really Tough
In the second session the V-12's
really get a going over. The first 10
or 15 minutes are devoted to a warm-
ing-up period in which the morning
exercises are repeated with much
more forcefulness. Then all proceed
from Ferry Field to their respective
individualized training groups.
These groups, composed of about
35 to 50 men, engage in different
athletics for the five meetings a
week. During the week the sailors
and marines spend one session in the
swimming pool, track, gymnastics,
tumbling, grass drill (the same one
that is given to the football team
during their training season) push-
ball, and the famous "obstacle
Men Hammered into Shape
From these exercises the V-12's
are rapidly being hammered into
shape. At the beginning of the pres-
ent term a series of tests were given
to detefmine physical fitness of the
men and at the end of the coming
eight weeks these same tests will be
Those drawing the lower 30 per-
cent in this test compared to the last
one, will repeat these same exercises.
Those in the upper seventy percent
will be allowed to compete in varsity
sports or any of the special courses
that will be offered by the instructors
during the rest of the term. These
special sports include boxing and
Concert Is Tonight
The second in a .series of three
chamber music concerts will be given
at 8:30 p.m. today in Pattengill Audi-
torium, Ann Arbor High School, with
Oliver Edel, guest member of the
music school faculty, presenting De-
Lamarter's "Sonata in E-flat major"
and Brahms "Trio in C minor.'

With the numbers, if not the talent,

Coach Charley Bachman expressed
pleasure at finding 46 lads awaiting
him when he blew the first assembly
call this afternoon. He had only 28
on the field for practice last spring.
while 55 had reported an interest in
playing last week.
Admitting his collection was in the
nature of a grab bag because few
men in civilian clothes are left at
Michigan State, Bachman reported
that eight or ten of the aspirants
were big enough to measure up to
pre-war standards..
"We are going to be short of line-
men," he declared, "but some of the
others may make good backs. A
number of them have had some high
school experience."
The major note of cheer in an
afternoon devoted to passing, kick-
ing and running simple signals was
the passing performance of Robert
Krestel, of Pittsburgh. Bachman
said the lad had high school train-
ing and appeared to be something of
a passer.
Practice will go on daily from 4 to
6 p.m. with the coaches planning to
stress fundamentals of football for
the green but willing squad.

Likewise, after a strenuous session

Hefty Fred Negus, former Badger
center, who was jinxed by injuries
last week, has been able to play and
seems not. to have been permanently
affected by the slight injuries to his
leg and arm that he sustained in
early sessions last week.
Of necessity punting practice is
held after the regular drills, because
of the fact that the Navy gnd Marine
men have to reach mess by 6:00
p.m., and since practice lasts only
until 5:30 p.m., all the time must
be devoted to regular practice.

KALAMAZOO, Aug. 4.-(A)-Little
Herbie Flam, who isn't much bigger
than a tennis racquet, led the ad-
vneof favorites today into the
fourth round of singles play in the
National Junior and Boys Cham-
pionship by gaining another straight
set triumph.
Flam, 14-year-old Beverly Hills,
Calif., boy who didn't lose a set last
week while capturing the Western

victory today over Charles Schaaf of
Highland Park, Ill., 6-0, 6-1. He now
has won six sets with the loss of
only four games.
The top-seeded junior player like-
wise was successful as Bob Falken-
burg of Hollywood, Calif., brushed
aside Lee Wood of Washington, 6-2,
6-2. Second seeded James Brink of
Seattle moved ahead by eliminating
hard hitting John Shea of Los An-
geles, 6-3, 6-3.
In the same division fourth seeded
Eugene Garrett of San Diego, Calif.,
defeated Bernard Bartzen of San
Angelo, Tex., 6-1, 6-1.
TjdW seeded Jack Tuero of New
Orl who won the Western Jun-
ior here last week, rallied to
defeat Robert David of Chicago, 4-6,
6-1, 6-2. Fifth ranking Ed Ray of
Taft, Tex., defeated Jack Sunderland
of Indianapolis, 6-3, 6-3, and sixth
seeded Howe Atwater of Chicago had
a fight on his hands before eliminat-
ing Henri Salaun, French refugee
from Boston, 5-7, 6-3, 6-3.

Decker Speaks
On U.S. Aims
in Japan, China
Must Be Formed for
Future World Peace
With British prestige rapidly
shrinking and - French prestige al-
ready gone in the Fai East, a new
role is opening up 'to the J'nited
States in which we must carry a
tremendous resoAiibiity for what
happens to China, Prof'. John Deck-
er, expert on Fa Eastern affairs, said
yesterd y In a Iectre"on' "Asia and
the Aims of the United Nations."
No Clear Program la de
"So far there has been no clear
program formulated for the Far
East," Prof. Decker pointed out. "As
far as peace plans are concerned
there have been many noble and
brave words spoken, but then, noble
and brave words have been used
We would gain a military advan-
tage of the first magnitude if we
could get a program formulated that
was understood and approved by the
native of the lFar East, Prof. Decker
declared. And while many Of the
ideals and plans suggested by our
government officials, including the
President, Hull, Welles, and Wallace,
are vague, even these have not been
supported abroad, he "aid.
"What would I consider a sound
program for China?" Prof. Decker
asked. "Well, I cannot possibly see
how peace will be maintained in the
Far East without a strong, stable,
independent, self-respecting China.
That means that all her lost terri-
tory from Japan must' be restored,
that means that all the special ad-
vantages which China's allies now
enjoy must be relinquished."
War Does Nt Pay
"As for Japan," Prof. Decker con-
tinued, "she must 'be crushingly de-
feated at home until the people real-
ize that war does not pay, that it is
a nasty business."
In other conflicts Japan fought on
foreign soil, Prof. Decker pointed
out; this time we must take the war
to her, we must bomb her cities until
they are in ruins. We must force
Japan to give up all her conquests
sifice 1894 which includes Manchur-
ia, Korea, the mandated islands, and
southern Cina .
* Without these bases, no matter
how quickly Japan recovers, she will
be in noapoitio f to aggress. The
fiture peace of the Far East is great-
ly dependent upon what happens to
these territories'," Prof. 'ecker con-
