Navy Plans for
f Air Power'
All Coniat Matters To
Be Handled by Deputy
Chief, Knox Reports
WASHINGTON, Aug. 20.- (A)-
Steps to make the Naval air arm
even harder hitting- were disclosed
today by Navy Secretary Knox, while
a returned admiral reported that in
the Pacific, Japanese aircraft carrier
strength "may approach ours."
Knox told a press conference that
hereafter all naval aviation matters
leading to actual combat would be
directly under a deputy chief of
naval operations instead of being
channeled through the bureau of
aeronautics, primarily a material
and supply branch.
To the same reporters, Rear Admr.
DeWitt Clinton Ramsel, new chief of
the bureau. made a report on his re- I
cent tour of duty as commander of a
carrier task force in the south Pacif-
Ramsey said Japanese carrier
strength has "improved materially.'
He added, however, "I think the
enemy is loath to bring his strong
surface forces or carrier task forces
down to the south Pacific area" be-
cause "they just don't want to take
a pretty bad licking--our situation
has improved greatly there in recent
Of the aviation changes, Knox re-
marked. "We now have a bureau to
supply the planes and a department
to operate them."
Vice-Admr. John S. McCain, 59-
year-old veteran of air service in the
south Pacific, will head the new op-
erational division.
"Generally," said Knox. the aim is
"to increase the responsibility and
autonomy of the aeronautical organ-
izations in procurement of finest air-
craft types. perfecting training and
supply systems and other adminis-
trative functions so vitally important
to the prosecution of the war."
Asked if the Japanese air force
should be considered as weak, Ram-
sey replied: -
"I believe we have underestimated
the Japanese airplane productive ca-
pacity. They show an ability to re-
place losses which is somewhat
600 Guns Sent
TO VU'Museum
Six hundred guns were added to
the University collections when the
hobby of the late Arthur G. Cummer
of Jacksonville, Fla.. was turned over
to the Museum of Art and Archeol-
While the firearms may not prove
useful as far as fighting this war is
concerned, the collection is still a
valuable one, containing many rare
pieces dating back to the sixteenth
and seventeenth century. A special
pait of the collection contains num-
erous dueling pistols.
Dr. Enoch E. Peterson of the Muse-
um of Art and Archeology is now
preparing the firearms for an exhibi-
tion to be held sometime this fall.
Mr. Cummer was a student in the
College of Literature, Science and
the Arts, from 1888-92.

Movies, Picnic
Replace Dinner
For Rushees
Fraternities Find Point
System Too Muddled
To Continue Tradition
Meat shortages and the whole
muddle of the "point" system have
proved too much for many of the
local fraternities when it comes to
the traditional dinner dates with
prospective pledges.
Inviting the rushees to dinner has
succumbed to movie dates, picnics,
coke dates, and informal ball games.
"The Phi Delta Theta house," pres-
ident Pete Smith said yesterday, "has
invited the boys up after dinner for
customary 'singing and playing ball.
We can't have them for dinner as
our points just couldn't stand it."
The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity,
living in the Alpha Tau Omega house
has had rushees for dinner. "How-
ever, we usually resort to shows and
coke dates," one of the members said.
Members of Theta Chi fraternity,
living together in a rooming house
have planned baseball games and
picnics at the Island on week-ends,
Dick Emery said.
The new type of rushing not only
helps the houses serving meals con-
serve their ration points but also
benefits those fraternities not having
houses at the present time but desir-
ing to rush.
Yesterday 120- men had registered
for summer rushing. Emery, presi-
dent of IFC, urged all men who wish
to pledge a general fraternity to reg-
ister at the office in Room 306,
Union. "I believe there are many
who have not yet registered and
would like to pledge," he said, "and
they cannot be pledged until after
they are officially registered." Ser-
vicemen stationed on campus are al-
lowed to join fraternities.
Rushing can begin, according to
the rules governing fraternities for
the duration of the war, after official
registration has taken place. The-
names of all rushees are sent to
operating fraternities. Pledging is
officially legal two .weeks after regis-
tration, and initiation can take place
one month after pledging.
