B. von KieinSmid President British Advance on Italian Base ‘Move-in’ on Toburk as Offense Gathers CAIRO. Jan. 8—<C.P>—The British army of the Nile closed in on Toburk today in the path of fast, mechanized skirmishers which already have made contact with the defenses of the Fascist naval and air base next in the sweep of the great British desert offensive. More British tanks, armored cars and infantry are being concentrated in the Tobruk area daily, an authoritative military spokesman said. He added, however, that j a line of retreat was still open to the Italians, presumably along the coastal road leading to Dema. Thus far there have been no signs of the Italians attempting to evacuate Tobruk. (London reported that British armored units had swept around Tobruk to the west and cut its communications with Dema, the next Italian base 130 miles westward.) The middle east command revealed today that British and Australian casualties at Bardia. where more than 30.000 Italians were captured, were less than 600—a rough ratio of one British soldier to each 500 Italians. Despite the rapidity of the British desert blitzkrieg, military authorities advised caution regarding the prospects of ending all Italian resistance in Libya. As far as Tobruk is concerned, it was thought likely that several days would elapse before any real attempt is made to take the base. Time is needed to get the British main force into position—especially heavy artillery. A very high officer of the Royal Air Force said today that concentrated and continuous RAF attacks on Italian air bases as far west as Tripoli explained the lack of effective Fascist air opposition to the British drive into*Libya. The officer said that the RAF had destroyed 500 Italian planes since Italy entered the war, with a loss of less than 100 British planes. NYA Appointment Applications Due Students who are on NYA for the first semester of this year and whose need is sufficient to warrant a reapplication for second semester, should make application for reappointment at once in one of the following offices: counselor of women, counselor of men. bureau of employment, or the central NYA office. New applicants who were not assigned during the first semester should submit applications as soon after Monday, January 13 as possible at any one of the above of-1 fices.

Arthur Lalonde. president of the fraternity, will lead a discussion oi a plan for enlarged activities during the new year. A feature of this plan is that each member will at one time be responsible for securing the speaker of the week instead of having one member obtain all the speakers. Since members will get men active in their special interests, the plan is expected to make for a more complete coverage of the whole field of transportation. Lalonde also will announce olans for the initiation at the end of the month. We would like to single out every non-org and extend him a formal invitation,” said General Chairman Bob Moody, "and Lancers will welcome fraternity men or women who come with non-orgs.” HAS THREE-FOLD IDEA Each Lancer function has a threefold purpose: To obtain an on-campus location for the convenience of students; to provide entertainment for as many students as possible; ana to offer these students good entertainment at a reasonable price. Tickets to the “open door” dance will sell at the door for 25 cents a person or 50 cents a couple. Guests will dance to requested numbers played on the specially constructed sound recorder of Charles Anderson who furnished music for the Lancers’ first dance. Anderson has turned a hobby of collecting popular recordings into a lucrative enterprise. Providing all the electrical equipment he offers students more than 300 assorted records including the latest in swing music. GUESTS INVITED Instead of faculty chaperones, the Lancers offer faculty hosts and hostesses. Acting in such a capacity will be Dr. and Mrs. Hampton K. Snell, Dr. Francis M. Bacon, counselor of men, and Dr. Mary Sinclair Crawford, counselor of women. Dr. Snell is an associate professor of transportation in the College of Commerce. “Because of the rapid increase in attendance to Lancer functions, committeemen have made arrangements for 200 guests tomorrow night and they urge students attending other university functions not to hesitate to come late,” Moody concluded. Erma Meti—heads WAA banquet. Dr. Tanquary Elected to Speech Council Dr. G. P. Tanquarv, professor in the School of Speech, was elected to the executive council of the National Association of Teachers of Speech at a convention in Washington. D.
