The assembly on Monday which will be presided over by 'Dr. Rufus B. von KleinSmid, will be followed by a reception by student and faculty groups. Lt. Johannes Woltjer, who was appointed by Queen Wilhelmina to represent the Netherlands on the war heroes tour of the United States, was in Rotterdam during the nazi invasion and escaped to England where he joined the Dutch navy. At Surabaya naval base last March he was again forced to flee as the Japanese overran the Indies. BRITISH PILOT Wing Cmdr. Scott Malden, representing Great Britain, is credited with having piloted his Spitfire to six victories over enemy planes. He is a graduate of Cambridge and holds a distinguished service cross. Sub-Lt. Richard Miles has served in Britain's navy since 1940, and is former secretary of the Oxford University liberal club. Russian sniper Sr. Lt. Liudmila Pavlichenko, since the beginning of the war, has fought in the Soviet front lines and possesses the order of Lenin for her feat of killing 309 enemy officers and men, more than any other Russian sniper. She fought at Odessa and later at Sevastopol, where she remained until the fall of that city. The quartet, Sr. Lt. Liudmila Pavlichenko, Russia's famous girl sniper, Lt.

Each district is broken j down into several groups accord- j ing to streets and addresses. Students can in this manner locate the driver nearest their homes. Lee said that the success or failure of the entire program now rests with the students. Students wishing to secure rides may do so | by contacting the listed drivers. An earlier system of ride-sharing bogged down because of student apathy toward signing up for rides. Under the new system the committee will post a complete list of drivers with names and addresses on the bulletin board in the Student Union early next week. SC Musicians Play Classics LONDON, Oct. 8—(U.P.)—The Germans will abandon their / I l C* A A S"* ^ron^a^ assaults on Stalingrad and destroy what is left of the Dcits for U5MC city artillery, the Berlin radio said tonight, raising the ' possibility that Hitler may swing his armies south ahead of I the Russan snows and try to break through the Caucasus dur- | -—-| ing the winter. British experts also saw the pos sibility that Hitler, faced with defeat in the greatest battle of the war, was pulling his badly mauled forces back to winter quarters on the Don river. They could ill survive the winter on the Stalingrad steppes, a shelterless region of howl-in? blizzards. CHANGE ASSERTED f The Berlin radio said there has been “an important change in the character of the battle” (for Stalingrad). German objectives there have been “achieved,” it said, and there is' no further purpose in German troops trying to storm “the rest" of the city. It warned, however, that the districts still standing will be destroyed by the heaviest artillery, which is already in place at the front. This announcement was in stark contrast to Hitler's winter relief speech last Wednesday saying that “Stalingrad will be taken—you can be sure of that.” OFFENSE COLLAPSING There have been indications for several days that Hitler’s whole 1942 plan for the conquest of Stalingrad, the lower Volga and the Caucasus was collapsing in the face of ferocious Russian resistance, and some informants here regarded the radio statement as an admission of the failure of the 48-day siege. “It may be his (Hitler’s) first step toward abandoning the bloody slaughter and preparing the way for a get-out,” one observer said. CITY BATTERED Stalingrad is believed to have been so badly battered already that it would be uninhabitable by either side this winter. A German withdrawal would bear a striking similarity to the retreat from Rostov last winter. There, after announcing that they had captured the Don river port on Nov. 22, the Germans announced Nov. 29 that they were withdrawing for “strategic’’ reasons and would reduce Rostov with long range artillery.

Issuing a call yesterday, Frank M. Kramer of the department said that workers are want- I--- " ed for both tomorrow and Sunday. Pay is based on the rate of 15 cents a field box. Kramer stated that a good picker can do from 40 to 50 boxes a day. “Not only is this a paying proposition but it is a patriotic service for folk who have been asking for something definite to do in the war effort,” said Kramer. “We are attempting to save food for our soldiers, as the tomatoes I will go to army and navy needs which are becoming increasingly urgent.” Instructions for students who wish to help in picking are (1) file your name with Mrs. Iva Custer of the SC employment bureau, room 228 6tudent Union, before 3 p.m. today; <2) transportation will be provided for those without cars; (3) cars will leave from the San Fernando headquarters of the United States employment service at 132 North Maclay street at 7:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday; (4) Scrap Pile Grows With Troy Yield Old radio parts, wires and metal —anything the campus can manage without—can now be found on the east side of Bovard field. These parts may eventually go into another plane for MacArthur or another jeep for Private Johnny Jones. Every building on campus has been cleared of scrap, everything from a piece of wire to an iron plaque, so that SC's contribution to the scrap drive now weighs almost 5000 pounds compared with Thursday's total of little more than 200 pounds. The morning’s collection totaled only 307 pounds, but by afternoon the addition of 1800 pounds made the heap a respectable size. wear old clothes and take a hat to Fourteen Men Receive avoid sunburn; (5) bring a bucket or dishpan and take your lunch; (6) include a bottle of drinking water.

Hall Describes Drug Shortage Speech Scheduled Tonight at Hancock The growing shortage of herbs and pharmaceuticals and the work of the United States to find new sources will be the topic of a lecture by Dr. Alvah G. Hall, acting dean of the College of Pharmacy, this evening at 8 in 145 Hancock hall. Because many of the drugs and herbs used in pharmacy and medicine are shipped from the Orient, supplies have stopped completely. To prevent this shortage, the United States is experimenting with its natural and synthetic production. NEW FIELDS STARTED In California and Washington fields of belladonna, a deadly drug, have already been cultivated. Anthony Amatuzio, SC alumni, is now experimenting in this field .in this state. Recent fieds of quilnine, which is shipped from India, have been discovered in Columbia, South America. These new fields will eliminate the growin gshortage of this widely used drug. CEILINGS PLACED Price ceilings have already been put on drugs and herbs and the sale of many has been frozen. The sale of agar, a Japanese product, has been restricted to use on bacteria slides only. The supply of opiates, which come from China and India, has been checked over, and although no new shipments can come in, there probably will be no shortage. Joe E. Brown s Older Son Dies in Plane Crash Comedian Travels by Plane to Scene of Desert Disaster DETROIT. Oct. 8. — (U.P) — The ear-to-ear smile that for years has characterized the face of Joe E. Brown was gone tonight as the comedian planned to board a plane for Palm Springs, Calif., where his son, Capt. Done E. Brown, was killed in an army airplane crash today. Brown could not be reached for a statement, but his manager, Richard Marshall, said he would board an American Airlines plane shortly after midnight. Tonight’s performance of “The Show-off,” in which Brown was starred for the past month, was called off.

The young pilot was engaged in a routine operation when the plane plummeted to the ground near the JOE E. BROWN . . . flies south desert resort, superior officers said.

A broadcast of DNB, official German news agency, sad said that since the major German objectives at Stalingrad had been "achieved,” it is “no longer necessary that ,the rest of the city be captured by storm.” Instead, Berlin said, the rest of Stalingrad will be destroyed by heavy artillery.) Although the communique reported only that the Russians were making a stonewall stand in Stalingrad, broken by ,the retreat in the outlying area, supplementary front dispatches indicated that the whole German plan for crushing Stalingrad was falling apart they reported steady progress in the Russian advance from the northwest and said that in one big battle outside the city, 45.000 Germans paced by elite Prussian shock troops were routed in disorders from a northwestern industrial district.
