Attacks on Hitler Demonstrate
German Collapse Imminent


"The attempted assassination of
Hitler is the type of occurrence which
usually precedes complete disintegra-
tion of the established government,
so we can expect Germany to make
quite reasonable offers to the Allies
in a short time," Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department
predicted in his talk yesterday.
"The future looks far more favor-
able to the Allies than ever before; in
fact, the plot, coming at this time, is
the best thing that could have hap-
pened. The world may expect a more
humble and condescending Germany
in the next few months," Prof. Slos-
son stated.
Violence Shows Opposition
Since German politicshave been
stifled since 1933 when the Nazi party
took over, violence is the only means
Prof. Baird To
Give Program
Prof Claribel Baird, of the speech
department of Oklahoma College for
Women, known to 'U' students for
her role as Rhoda in "The Damask
Cheek" and for parts in speech de-
partment plays, will present a pro-
gram in selected readings on famous
statesmen at 3 p. m. today in Rack-
ham Amphitheater.
Prof. Baird will present scenes
from' Maxwell Anderson's "Valley
Forge," "In Time to Come" by How-
ard Koch, "The Patriots" by Sidney
Kingsley, and selections from Robert
Frost and Edna St. Vincent Millay."
With the University for twelve
consecutive summers, Prof. Baird has,
been with the Michigan Repertory
Players for ten years. She is direct-
ing "Journey to Jerusalem" to be
presented next Wednesday.
The program today is sponsored by
the Department of Speech and is
open to the public.
Tryouts for Chorus of
Operetta Will Be Held
Tryouts for the chorus of "The
Chocolate Soldier," the operetta
which will be presented August 16
through 19 by the Michigan Reper-
tory Players of the Department of
Speech, will be held from 4 to 6 p.m.,
tomorrow at the Lydia Mendelssohn1

of anti-Nazi propaganda within Ger-
many, he said. The attempted assas-
sination of Hitler, which took place
on July 20" was a culmination of just
such propaganda.'
Slosson reiterated the fact that two
other attempts on Hitler's life had
been made in the past; the first in
1934 by leaders of the Brown Shirts,
and the second in 1939 by an explo-
sive planted in the Munich beer hall.
Although other assassinations have
been faked, Prof. Slosson believed
that the latest one was a genuine
attempt to do away with the Fuehrer
because of the injuries sustained.
Truman Represents Compromise
Turning to the United States' po-
litical wars, Prof. Slosson stated that
Senator Harry Truman of Missouri,
the Democratic vice-presidential can-
didate, was a compromise choice
among the four factions which make
up therDemocratic party. Truman, a
southerner, was acceptable to the
northern Democrats and to the labor
unions because of his liberal voting
record, and next to Wallace, was
FDR's choice for vice-presidential
nominee, Slosson said. Truman, satis-
fying the four elements, became the
least common denominator of the
Democratic party and thereby won
the nomination.
Truman's chief work has been the
investigation of mismanagement and
waste funds in war contracts.
"He is not a great man, but he has
shown himself to be level-headed and
intelligent," Slosson stated.
Since Roosevelt has given no pledge
to continue to hold office for the
next four years if he wins the presi-
dential election, Prof. Slosson inti-
mated that Truman would be a good
man to take over the chair if and
when FDR resigns.
Stenographic Help Needed
At 'U' Fresh Air Camp
An urgent appeal for stenographic
help at the University Fresh Air
Camp was made yesterday by Profes-
sor Ferdinand Menefee, Director of
the Camp.
Arrangements can be made, ac-
cording to Professor Menefee, for
secretaries who would like to work
part time each day, possibly four
hours, and spend the rest of their
time in recreation. They would re-
ceive board and room at the camp as
well as a salary for their work.
