Jan. 2—<U.P> — Vernon Bartlett, war commentator of the News Chronicle, said in that newspaper today that the British ambassador in Tokyo, Sir Robert Leslie Craigie, has been instructed to inquire into reports that German commerce raiders are being outfitted in Japanese ports. The commentator said that the sinking of the Turakina and the shelling of Nauru island by German raiders disguised as Japanese ships “adds urgency to the ambassador's inquiries.” Earlier reliable informants had said it was “highly improbable that Britain or Australia will protest against use of the Japanese flag by German sea raiders in the Pacific ocean. It is the “usual practice’' uf German raiders to use a neutral nag, the informants claimed, and in this case the Japanese flag is a neutral choice. The Japanese government, however, was said “not necessartlv to be responsible for the German action.” Officials said the losses inflicted by the sea raiders had been included in the regular admiralty announcements of shipping losses. Otherwise. they said, the addition of all the sinkings to those reported for a single week would maxe the total abnormally large and falsely indicative of a heavy German blow to shipping. FDR Talk New Hancock Hall to Oppose Dedicated Tomorrow AxiS Aims ^ ,. .. - Von KieinSmid to Accept Gift From Explorer GROUNDBREAKERS—Dwight Hart and Betty Lou Stone are shown in groundbreaking ceremonies for the central unit of the new north gate which is being constructed at the corner of University avenue and 34th street. Hart is chairman, and Miss Stone is a member, of the greater university committee, which has sponsored plans for the gate and the proposed "Wall of Troy." Construction Started on New Gates of Troy' Groundbreaking Ceremonies Conducted; First Unit of North Gate Progresses Long a purely hypothetical term, the “Gates of Troy” are rapidly approaching reality as construction work goes forward on the first unit of the gate at the corner of University avenue and 34th street. First part of a gateway to the SC Ranked Ninth in United States for Enrollment Ranked ninth in attendance in the United States with 15.196 students, SC placed first in the southern Califomia area over UCLA which was listed with 9043 students, according to figures released during the holidays by Dr. Raymond Walters, president of the University of Cincinnati and enrollment statistician. In his 22nd annual survey for School and Society. Dr. Walters showed that the nation’s accredited 652 colleges and universities had 883.594 full-time students this fall and a grand total of 1.347.146 students, full, part-time, and summer sessions. Freshman enrollment decreased from last year in five major fields of study, and a lower total college attendance for next year is forecast by Dr. Walters. The University of Califomia retained first place among individual schools in full-time enrollment with 16.946 students, while the nation’s leading school was New York university with 35.623. SCs total enrollment figure is made up of students attending the regular session, summer sessions. University college, and University junior college. proposed wall around the SO campus, the structure, which will cost approximately $2000, will be made of brick and cast stone. Dwight Hart and Betty Lou Stone, members of the greater university committee, participated in the groundbreaking ceremonies, which were held during Christmas vacation. * The central pier is being constructed on the parkway in the center of University avenue, and plans call for the eventual placing of other smaller units cn each side of the avenue. The three portions of the gate would then be connected by removable posts a~d chains, thus preventing ordinary traffic on the campus but allowing for emergency entrance. Approximately 144 feet in height and 13 feet in width, the pier will bear the university seal on the north side. Beneath the seal will be an inscription cut in a panel of recessed stone. Draftsmen in the office of the supervising architect estimated that the undertaking would be completed about February 1. Reflecting the image of the seal, a shallow U-shaped pool will extend 15 feet in front of the pier. Part of a program of expansion sponsored by the greater university committee, the central unit of the proposed gateway is being provided by funds donated by the class of ’31, and supplemented by funds left by the classes of ’36. ’38. '39, and '40. Relative of Bruce Dies After Illness Edmund A. Strause, 70, pioneer resident of southern California and father-in-law of Dr. Henry E.

Methodists Meet Monday To discuss the problems of the integrated educational program of the Methodist church, the Association of Schools and Colleges of the Methodist church will meet on the SC campus January 6 and 7. Dr. Rufus B. von KieinSmid is president of the association and announced last week that the theme of the two-day meeting will be Methodist Education and National Responsibilities.” The group includes in its membership 138 Methodist educa tioi.al institutions of the United States. At least 75 of the member schools are expected to be represented at the meeting on the Trojan campus, which precedes the national conclaves of the Association of American Colleges, the Council of Church boards, and the National Council of Church-Related colleges. The program on January 7 will include devotional services, addresses on various problems of the association, and discussion meetings. John L. Seaton, president of Albion college. Albion, Mich., will deliver the invocation and Umphrey Lee, president of Southern Methodist university, will speak on “Methodist Education and National Unity” at the opening dinner meeting January 6. ‘Loan-Lease’ Plan Expected in Message to Congress Monday WASHINGTON, Jan. 1 — (U.P.)—A message to congress definitely pitting the United States against the aims of the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo axis and projecting the urgent need of expanding short-of-war aid to Great Britain was being prepared tonight by President Roosevelt. He will appear Monday before a joint session of the 77th congress. Ostensibly he will be there to present a report on the state of the union, but actually he will describe the hazards to this country in a world aflame and propose methods of coping with the problem. “LOAN-LEASE” PLAN EXPECTED One suggestion is expected to be the new “loan-lease” plan under which this country would provide aid to Britain, Greece, China, and other nations resisting aggression when their financial resources are exhausted or near depletion. This proposal is expected to touch off a lively congressional struggle over the administration’s entire foreign policy. Nation-wide reaction to his fireside chat of Sunday night in which herejected peace suggestions at this time as “nonsense” probably will convince the chief executive that he has no need to pull his punches in his message to congress. SENATE MAY OPPOSE Main opposition to the “loan-lease” plan will come in the senate and experts were agreed that unless it encounters a filbuster, the proposal will pass with votes to spare. Opposition may be weakened by the president’s revelation that the United States would be willing to receive payment of tin, rubber or other raw materials of which there is a shortage in this country, for war materials made available to friendly foreign powers and damaged beyond repair. California Places in Death Race' During Holidays By United Presi The nation’s New Year holiday fatality toll from highway accidents and other forms of violence mounted toward 200 last night but that was almost 100 less than at the corresponding time at the close of Christmas observance a week ago. New York led the states with 21 deaths, 15 of them in traffic accidents. • Illinois had 19 deaths reported, Califomia 18, Pennsylvania 11, and Michigan and Iowa 9. The United Press nationwide survey indicated that at least 146 persons died violently during the festive New Year's eve celebration and the first day of 1941. Nearly 75 per cent of these deaths—101 — were caused by traffic accidents on highways crowded by holiday travelers and made dangerous by almost countrywide rains. Miscellaneous causes, ir, eluding shootings, fires, suicides, and train-auto crashes, accounted for 46 deaths.
