Bailey, who received his B.S. cum iaude at SC in 1941, and is now with the Ninth Army in the middle east., has been presented with the Air Medal, according to word sent to the university by Virgil Becker, a close friend of the flyer. In the presentation of the medal, the citation read, “in recognition for achievement while participating in aerial flight and ICO hours of operational flight against the enemy in the middle eist theater of war.” While at SC, Lt. Bailey was very popular in student activities. He was a member of Skull and Dagger, Ball and Chain, Phi Kappa Tau, and was active in other prominent social and fraternal activities. He graduated from Los Angeles High school. Lt. Bailey was a pilot on the “Boomerang,” widely publicized bomber that took a conspicuous part in the raid on Lille, France, recently. After Lt. Bailey enlisted in the U. S. army air forces as an aviation cadet, he took his training rt Mather Field, Sacramento, and graduated from there April 24, 1942. Americans gain 23-mile area near Feriana ALLIED HEADQUARTERS, North Africa, Mar. 2—(U.P.)— American forces fanning out in two columns from the scene of their triumph at Kasserine pass have swept 23 miles to the east, capturing Sbeitla, and a like distance southwest to the area of Feriana, it was disclosed tonight. Front dispatches said the Americans nowhere in central Tunisia were meeting axis resistance other than mines and booby traps. But in the jagged hills to the northeast sharp fighting still was under way at last reports, with British troops holding the Germans at all points, aided by a concentrated air bombardment of enemy columns. The powerful allied air offensive spread over the Mediterranean yesterday to Palermo, Sicily, where flying fortresses carried out two attacks, and to Naples where American Liberators made a heavy daylight raid. Allied pilots and gunners downed 27 enemy planes during the day while they lost only five of their own. Official reports said the Americans actually had penetrated Feriana but full occupation of the important railroad point was delayed by the necessity of clearing its approaches of hundreds of mines and booby traps set in nearly every hut and cactus bush. There were no signs of enemy activity at Feriana or at Sbeitla, into which American armored patrols rolled at noon yesterday. It was believed that Marshal Rommel now had withdrawn all the way to Faid pass and Gafsa, leaving only a weak rear guard on the central plain. Today’s allied communique made the first official disclosure of the recapture of the town of Kasserine, which front dispatches said fell to the Americans over the weekend. El Rodeo asks clubs to report for camera pose Judicial court members Marjorie Ann Braden, Mary Kay Krysto, Leta Gallentine, Mary Frances Riley, and Jean Harris will meet in the El Rodeo office, 202 Student Union, for their picture at 3:30 p.m. today, according to John Lowe, yearbook editor. Tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 the El Rodeo will take pictures of the following organizations: The Publications board, Athletics committee, El Rodeo staff, and members of the Wampus staff who have not yet reported for their picture. If they wish to have their panels in the 1943 yearbook, the following organizations must hand in their membership lists to the El Rodeo office today: Blue Key, Clionian, Knights, Phi Mu Sigma, Sigma Alpha Iota, Skull and Dagger, WAA cabinet, Beta Psi, Kappa Phi Zeta, Alpha Epsilon Delta, and Amazons. scatter large Jap convoy GEN. MacARTHUR’S HEADQUARTERS, Australia, Mar. 3 —(U.P.)—American Flying Fortresses and Liberators, flying through tropical storms, have scattered a 14-ship Japanese convoy, sinking two large transports and severely damaging two smaller ones, and sending the fleet’s remnants limping toward New Guinea, Gen. Douglas Argonaut dub plans meeting Columbia university professor of philosophy, Dr. William Pepperell Montague, will speak to members of the Argonaut club lor philosophy students tomorrow in Mudd Memorial building, according to George Myron Raun, president. “Due to ,the curtailment of transportation, the Argonauts have not had regular monthly meetings, but because of Dr. Montague’s visit to our city, a special meeting has been planned to give every Argonaut opportunity to hear one of America’s few outstanding philosophers,” Raun stated. Eitzen tells how to escape fear today “How can the soldier overcome fear in moments of anticipated action? Are brave men born or conditioned?” These are two of the questions Dr. David D. Eitzen will answer today at 4:15 p.m. in the art and lecture room of Doheny Memorial library. This, the third in a series of interpretations of great books of the year, will feature “Victory Over Fear” by John Dollard. Dollard has been a staff member of the Institute of Human Relations at Yale university and was associated with the University of Chicago. Dr. Eitzen, a member of the SC graduate school of religion, joined the university in 1938 in the capacity of student counselor. He will review the book from the point of view of a counselor. Dr. Eitzen will discuss the scientific technique of becoming confident in relation to the large number of university students entering the military service. This subject was explained in the Jan. 25 issue of Life magazine by the Council of Psychological Research. MacArthur announced today. Allied losses in the battle fought between Lae, the Japanese New Guinea north coast base, and New Britain island to the northeast were light, today’s United Nations communique reported, but the battle is continuing. The big Boeing and ‘Consotl* dated bombers, escorted by swift and deadly Lockheed Lightnings, tore into a heavy enemy air armada of 30 to 40 fighters and put 13 of them out of action as they pummeled the convoy. Hits or near misses were scored on several other vessels besides those specifically cited, in the communique, and some of these may have been warships. “The convoy consisted of three cruisers, four destroyers, and seven cargo vessels and transports," a headquarters spoke^nan said. After the convoy was spotted and shadowed along the north coast of New Britain Monday, th# real attack began Tuesday morning when the fortresses inflicted most of the damage. “Tuesday’s reports are incomplete, principally because the bombers art shuttling over the targets, not permitting thorough interrogation.” The convoy was trapped north of Cape Gloucester, on the southwest tip.of New Britain and 150 air miles northeast of Lae, U.P. reports ilm to illustrate ibrary techniques • * “Yours for the Taking,” a 25-minute sound film on the [udent’s use of the library by Miss Frances Christeson, will shown in the art and lecture room of Doheny Memorial >rary tomorrow at 8:10, 9:10, 10:20, and 11:20 a.m. For lose having classes during the morning hours, a 12:10 _ showing has been added. resident's iffice notice In order to provide for a stu-it body “Send-off Rally” for ERC men on Friday, Mar. 5, the following schedule will govern meeting during the morn- 8:00— 8:45 1:55—16:00 “Send-off Rally” in front of Old College. 10:05—10:50 10:55—11:35 11:40—12:20 R.

Of the films presented it was considered best from the points of pnotography, color, and presentation of subject material. Knowing how to use the library with benefit to the student and consideration for others is the theme of the movie. - Russia Timoshenko presses slowly retreating Germans westward toward Star Russa and main Leningrad-Vitebsk railroad; thaw slows fighting from Orel south.
