Approximately 100 boys from the

To Provide Recreation
The money collected in the drivei
will be used to provide recreational
activities for underprivileged childrenc
in the Detroit area, as well as medi-
cal treatment and insurance poli-
cies. In addition counselors, select-
ed from colleges and universities
throughout the country for work andt
instruction in the camp will be paidt
their tuition, room and board.
Selected by social agencies, thet
boys attending the camp are studiedI
by persons who are trained in educa-u
tion and social work with a view tot
helping them to adjust to their so-
cial environment. Case histories of1
the boys, obtained from their schools,
the social agencies, parents and the F
boy himself are correlated with the
progress of his 'adjustment at the
camp. Prof. F. N. Menefee, direct-
or of the camp, has emphasized that
"the camp administration prefers not
to take children from agencies not
disposed to ultilize the result of the
diagnosis made at the camp."
Eight Under Counselor
Each camp counslor has charge
of eight boys out of a total of 112
boys in each four week term. Camp
instructors supervise recreational ac-
tivities which include swimming, hik-
ing, arts and crafts, woodcutting,
cook-outs, overnight hikes and base-
The camp was established in 19241

Patterson Lake, 23 miles from Ann.
Arbor. Starting with tents for night
shelter, the camp has grown year by
year and now has 27 buildings and ant

interrupted by entrance into military
service. This program includes con-
centration in a special field and may
lead to an advanced degree. Due to
limited facilities, Dean Furstenberg
said, priority will be given to return-
ing medical officers.
A new position, "Special Instruct-
or," will be offered to a limited num-
ber of physicians in the various de-I
partrnents of the medical school. Ap-
pointees to this position will be affil-
iated with the department for a
determinate tenure of office and will
devote one-half of their time to some
type of graduate activity.
Intensive' courses of two months
duration are tentatively planned to
begin on Jan. 1, 1946. These courses
are to be given for the benefit of
those who desire training for 2, 4
or 6 months intervals. They will in-
clude clinical application of the basic
sciences, internal medicine and a
course for practitioners.
Offer Review Courses
Brief special review courses of
three to five and one-half days dura-
tion will cover regular post-graduate
subjects which have been offered by
the Department of # Postgraduate
Medicine each spring. Instruction
will begin in March and continue un-
til the middle of June.
Half-day clinical exercises for
practitioners are also included in the
plan. These courses will be repeated
at weekly intervals from Sept. 15 to
June 1.
Rdevised G.L 1Bill
Of Rights Rips
Through House
Washington, July 18-(P-A re-
vised G. I. Bill of Rights skimmed
through the House by unanimous
voice vote today, although several
members complained about the pro-
cedure which brought the measure
up without advance notice.
Its major provisions are designed
to liberalize the loan and education
sections of the overall veterans' ben-
efits measure enacted last year and
to overcome difficulties that have
arisen in administration of the orig-
inal law. The measure still requires
Senate approval.
It makes these major provisions:
Education : Extends from two to
four years after discharge the time
in which a study course may be start-
ed; extends from seven to nine years
after the war's end the time in which
education or training may be given
at government cost; provides for
short intensive postgraduate or vo-
cational courses of less than 30
weeks; permits the government to
finance correspondence courses; in-
creases from $50 to $60 the monthly
education subsistence allowance.

joining Prof. Lewis N. Holland of the
electrical engineering department in

Allied Victory
Is Goal as B1g
Three Confer
Stalin To Hear Plans
For Japan's Defeat
By The Associated Press
Potsdam, July 18-Three veter-
ans of old battlefields-President
Truman, Premier Stalin, and Prime
Minister Churchill--conferred again
late today, with Allied victory in the
Pacific a pressing goal.
This second formal meeting of the
Big Three was as heavily blanketed
by security as yesterday's, but the
trend of thought among the Ameri-
can and British delegations seemed
to make it certain that the ways and
means for Japan's defeat would be
fully aired before the Soviet leader.
Separate Conference
Earlier in the day, Truman con-
ferred separately with Churchill and
The day's events indicated the
leaders were agreed upon reaching
as promptly as possible full agree-
ment on issues facing them-issues
upon which a speedier end of the
war with Japan and the future peace
of Europe may depend.
Triumph Over Japan
Truman, the presiding officer of
the tri-power sessions, seeks as his
chief goals a quicker triumph over
Japan and the bulwarking of peace

He lunched today at 1 p. m. with
Churchill, and then later with Stalin.
He was accompanied at the second
luncheon by Secretary of State
James F. Byrnes, his close friend and
an experienced negotiator.
Under Cloudy skiffs, the President
walked from his residence to the lo-
cal equivalent of No. 10 Downing
Truman, Churchill Talk
Truman and Churchill talked cor-
dially on the terrace while photo-
graphs were taken, and then lunched
inside at a table set for two. When
Truman was leaving, Byrnes emerged
from British Foreign Secretary An-
thony Eden's house next door, where
he had lunched, and met the Presi-
dent at the entrance. The British
delegation did not say how long
Churchill and Trumann conferred,

American Carrier Planes Backed
By U.S.-British Fleet Bomb Tokyo
Second Straight Day- Nimitz Says

Major Part of Japanese Navy
Caught Hiding Camouflaged
By The Associated Press
GUAM, Thursday, July 19-American carrier planes, extending the
U. S.-British Fleet on the Tokyo area into the second straight day, attacked
Japanese combatant ships at the great Hokosuka Naval Yard in Tokf
Bay, Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz reported today.
This indicated that Adm. William F. Halsey, Jr's forces had discovered
the hiding place of a major portion of remnants of the enemy navy, which
has been in desperate hiding, under camouflage, since it was soundly
defeated off the Philippines last Oct-<

U. S. Naval authorities have esti-
mated that the Japanese have less
than 10 carriers, including escort
flattops, four to six battleships, in-
cluding old dreadnaughts, and not
many cruisers or destroyers.
On March 18, Mitchner's carrier
planes discovered some of the enemy
ships hiding in the inland sea of
Japan and irl a daring raid sank the
45,000-ton battleship Yamoto, two
cruisers and several destroyers and
destroyer escorts.
The Japanese ships apparently
moved after that and their where-
abouts had been undisclosed until
Nimitz' communique today reported
they were brought under attack by
Vice Adm. John S. McCain's Car-
rier Task Force 38.
Yokosuka Naval Base probably
was the most obvious place for the
ships to have sought to hide-in-
side Tokyo Bay-for it possibly was
the last place the enemy would
expect American forces to seek it.
Nimitz said adverse weather and
poor visibility prevented reconnais-
sance planes from reporting any re-
sults of this audacious attack.
He also reported that American
and British carrier planes raided the
Tokyo and East Honshu coastal areas
throughout yesterday and that light
naval units-cruisers and destroyers
-of the U. S. Third Fleet, went close
inshore to bombard the eastern Hon-
shu coast last night and early to-
The shelling carried the attacks
in the Tokyo area into the third
straight day.
Rear Adm. Carl Holden command-
ed the cruiser-destroyer force which
bombarded Nojima, south of Tokyo,
and other coastal installations.
Nimitz said the cruisers Topeka,
Oklahoma City, Atlanta, and Day-
ton, and the Destroyers Ault and
John W. Weeks were among those
shelling the coastal city's military
and industrial areas.

same time, Jones and Redmond,
members of the Twelfth Officer
Candidate Class, have stuck togeth-

them to far off Africa and India,
always changing stations on the
same orders and receiving promo-
tions simultaneously.
After training together in the Unit-

of their class to report here.
Even in civilian life, their careers
coincided to a remarkable degree.

It is a Mexican film with English
titles. "Todo", a Mexican paper,

human emotion evoked by this
magnificent cinematic work. .'The
Dark Night of the Mayas' makes us

the present registration of approxi-
mately 1,600 Army and Navy train-
"It should be pointed out that all
major decisions regarding the USO

Widespread Representation
"Within the membership of 35
