Ask Retention
Of Gen. Giraud
Churchill Discloses
Request to Liberation
Committee by Allies
LONDON, July 1. - (P) - Prime
Minister Churchill disclosed in the
House of Commons today that the
United States and British govern-
ments had asked the controversial
De Gaulle-Giraud National Commit-
tee of Liberation on June 19 that
Gen. Henri Giraud be retained "on
military grounds" as commander of
French armed forces in North Africa
for the present time.
A request for assurances "that
there should be no important change
in the French command in North
Africa at the present time," was
made to the Committee,-he said, on
behalf of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower,
Allied Commander-in-Chief.
Eisenhower's Position
The representation "was made on
military grounds and implied no de-
cision to invest Eisenhower with full
control over the political organiza-
tion in North Africa," the Prime Min-
ister said in response to a question
by Laborite Emanuel Shinwell.
Churchill's unequivocal words came
amid the stormy reaction of the
press and some political circles here
to what was described by some news-
papers as slighting treatment of Gen.
Charles De Gaulle, Fighting French
leader.
Following so closely on. Churchill's
statement yesterday that heavy
fighting would occur before fall in
the Mediterranean, the statement
served to confirm last Sunday's au-
thoritative analysis by Kirke Simp-
son, Associated Press staff writer in
Washington, of the view that the
De Gaulle-Giraud differences would
not be permitted to threaten the
success of any Allied military opera-
tions in the Mediterranean area.

Continuing the policy established
several years ago, the University of
Michigan with the cooperation of the
Army and Navy units will present
the first vesper service of the summer
series from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. Sun-
day in the First Congregational
Church.
The service, since it is to be held
on Independence Day, will feature
readings, music, and a talk on "This
Liberty" by Lt. Col. Thomas W. Car-
ter, supervising chaplain of the Sec-
ond District for the Army Air Forces
Technical Training Command, of St.
Louis.

Story of Yank
Assault Told
(Continued from Page 1)
hadn't attempted a major raid
similar to that of a couple of
weeks ago and that meant he
didn't know we were on the move
or that he was saving himself a
strike at sunset.'
But he wasn't. The Jap was
being taken by surprise. Over in
the wardroom of "The Can" last
night the gunnery and navigation
officers were clustered over maps
and charts, committing to mem-
ory in infinite detail the treacher-
ous reefs and sand keys which
choke this westermost neck of the
Blanche Channel and plotting the
range for guns.
Away ahead of the main convoy,
destroyers landed troops on the
tiny islands of Bau, Ane and Ko-
kirana which guard the 100-yard-
wide entrance to ecually small
Rendova harbor. The purpose was
to knock out likely Japanese
parties, enabling the main landing
to go ahead immediately the
transports arrived.
The dawn's early light was
just beginning to filter through
low-hanging clouds and misty
rain which continued to fall as
the transports swung into an-
chorage outside the entrance.
The land on either side of us
was still a black mass largely ob-
scured by the mist. Four destroy-
ers dropped astern and another
four, including The Can, proceeded
west, heading into Munda~ Point
with the object of drawing Japan-
ese fire.
"The Can" was second in line as
we swept in toward the reefs,
waiting for the Jap to show he
was still around after the terrific
aerial battering he received in the
last few days prior to the landing.
A quarter of an hour later a
loudspeaker connected to the
battle circuit of ships participat-
ing in the operation crackled
with the calm voice of a destroy-
er captain. He announced:
"They're shooting at us.
They're shooting at us."
Eager eyes scanned the rain-
swept waters of the channel in
order to observe shell splashes.
Several shells fell around the lead-
ing destroyer. Then the Commo-
dore spoke over the battle circuit:
"We can outrange them. Move
over."
As we circled back on Rendova
splashes like those made by ma-
chinegun bullets striking the water
took the eye. We were at that time
closing in to the machinegun
range. The bulletsplashes, how-
ever, were distinguishable within a
few minutes as the light strength-
ened and as leaping fish were
scared out of the water by the
concussion of guns.

4 the fact.
unparalleled reputation for honesty,
the big American station and its
staff, recruited from the commercial
radio and newspaper field, employs
effectively a technique almost dir-
ectly opposite to that of Axis radio
propagandists.
Musical accompaniments and oth-
er trappings of the commercial radio
art are dispensed with.
"We work on the theory that our
audience listens with an eye on the
door through which a policeman
might come at any moment," an
OWI official explained. "Therefore
we strip the program to essentials
which are easily understood and
quickly grasped."
The station's signature tune is
"Over There." That favorite of the
first world war was chosen, an offi-
cial said, "because it is widely known
in Europe and because everyone who
hears it a few times finds himself
humming or whistling it. Hitler's
cops surely cannot arrest everyone
who forgets himself for a moment
and whistles a snatch of 'Over
There.'
The news for enemy territory is
from the same sources as that sup-
plied Americans at home and in the
field. It is compiled from the re-
ports of the Associated Press and the
American news agencies, and the
same as used by Stars and Stripes,
daily Army paper.

Change of Authority
Over the Antilles May
Mean U.S. Alignment
WASHINGTON, July 1. - (P) -
United States authorities today took
under consideration a reported offer
of Admiral Georges Robert, Vichy
French high commissioner at Mar-
tinique to negotiate a transfer of
his authority over the Antilles-a
step which could lead to their allign-
ment with the United Nations.
Secretary of State Cordell Hull
said a dispatch on that subject had
been received through the Navy and
that attention is being given to it.
Asked at his press conference if
any envoy had been sent to Marti-
nique to discuss "terms for a change
of French authority," Hull said the
Navy probably would have to await
further developments before any an-
nouncement could be made. The
Navy department, said it "will take
it up with the state department."
Since the United States govern-
ment broke off informal relations
with Robert last April 26, it has left
Vice-Consul Ora S. Sitton there to
protect American interests and has
also maintained a naval observer
there for security reasons. Hull at
that time informed Robert that the
consular officers would not be auth-

Editor Leavest
Article on Fair LaborI
Standards Act Included
In His Last Magazine
Prof. Malcolm L. Davisson, editor-
in-chief of the Michigan Law Review
for the past year, left the University
yesterday to take over his duties as
head of the Department of Econom-
ics at the University of California;
after completion of his law study
here.
In the June issue of the Review,
featuring articles on labor law, Prof.
Davisson discusses the classification
of cases in "Coverage of the Fair
Labor Standards Act," and shows
what industries and occupations are
interstate commerce within the
meaning of the FLSA. He was re-
cently awarded the Coblentz Prize
for the best work on the Review dur-
ing the year.
Prof. Louis L. Jaffee of the Univer-
sity of Buffalo attempts to justify
the decisions relating to picketing as
free speech in his article "In Defense
of the Supreme Court's Picketing
Doctrine," in the June Review.
Arthur Lathrop, '43L, has contrib-
uted an analysis of the state court
decision before and after these Su-
preme Court cases which he has
titled "Objective Tests for Determin-
ing the Legality of Labor Activities."
Prof. Price Will Present

sored by the University and service-
men's units will be a special program
of carillon music by Prof. Percival
Price, University carilloneur.
Opening the program at 6 p.m.
Prof. Price will play Sousa's "The
Stars and Stripes Forever," followed
by a medley of American airs.

umbia," "Yankee Doodle," and

Barber's "Suite for Carillon," and
