SLOSSON BEGINS LECTURES:
Robot Bomb Will Not Alter
Course of War for Germans

"The robot bomb, although an in-
teresting type of warfare, cannot be
considered as the turning point of
the war," Prof Preston Slosson of the
Department of History said in the
first lecture in his series of talks on
current events yesterday.
Although the oombs can fly great
distances, they are less effective than
airplane bombardment because they
cannot be controlled, Prof. Slosson
continued. It is also a very expensive
type of warfare, as each bomb kills
on the average about one person, he
added.
Discussing the Italian theatre of
war, he said that northern Italy will
be obstinately contested because Hit-
ler is resolved to keep American
planes as far as possible from Ger-
many. The Gothic Line, he stated,
is the most logical line of defense for
the Germans.
"It is now evident that the Rus-
sians will make no peace until they
reach Berlin," Prof. Slosson contin-.
ued. "The most important Russian
objective is to eliminate the German
menace and they will continue their
offensive until it meets our armies in
the west," he added.
In his interpretation of the domes-

fact that we were holding an election
during the midst of war indicates
that we have "enough confidence in
ourselves to be willing to divide up
and be counted in the face of the
enemy."
One possible fight which the Dem-
ocrats may face in their coming con-
vention will be on the vice-presi-
dency, he said. "The South would
like more recognition," he added.
Practically all the men mentioned as
possible nominees for the vice-presi-
dency with the exception of Vice-
President Henry Wallace are from
the South."
Dr. Olivera Will Give
Talk Today on Cuba
The first in a series of lectures on

wards" will be given by Dr. Raul
Olivera of Cuba who will speak on
"Cuba Leads the Way in the Carri-

Auditorium.
He will be introduced by Prof.
Julio del Toro of the Spanish Depart-
ment and president of the Latin Am-,
