MacARTHUR’S HEADQUARTERS, Australia, Wednesday, Sept. 30—(U.P.)—Allied forces recaptured Ioribai-wa ridge, 32 air miles from Port Moresby, yesterday and the Japanese, abandoning equipment and supplies, are retreating northward through the jungles of the Owen Stanley mountains, it was announced today. The advance is continuing, said a communique from Gen. Douglas MacArthur's headquarters, which revealed the first major Allied ground success since the Japanese began their advance across New Guinea in July. The communique said the Japanese were retreating northward toward Nauro. 10 miles from Ioribai-wa ridge, the third peak on the Port Moresby side of the range, which is some 30 miles wide and reaches as high as 7000 feet in some places. Allied medium bombers also joined the attack, hitting the Japanese rear positions near Menari in the mountains. The communique said that Japanese defenders had prepared a position of natural strength for defense with barricades, obstructions and field trenches. Yesterday a headquarters spokesman had revealed that Allied forces, composed of Australian veterans, launched their attack with an over-the-top charge against barricades which the Japanese had thrown up along the native trail which winds 120 miles from their beachhead at Buna, on the north coast of New Guinea, down to Port Moresby. The communique said that “quantities of supplies and equipment which the Japs had left behind “are in our hands.” John Lowe Chosen Russians Stall to Edit El Rodeo Johnny Lowe, last year’s business manager for Wampus, student humor magazine, president of Alpha Delta Sigma, professional advertising fraternity, and member of Skull and Dagger, senior men’s honorary, has been chosen editor of this year’s El Rodeo, the publication s office disclosed today.

The vote was on two resolutions, one approving the Rio de Janeiro conference recommendation that all American nations sever relations with the axis powers and the second calling for immediate severance. The bill providing for ratification of the Rio de Janeiro recommendation now goes before the pro-administration senate and is expected to be defeated there. Even though the government probably will not act in accordance with either of the resolutions adopted by the chamber, the congress can take no further action until the next season opening in May, 1943. Under provisions of the state of siege, congress was permitted to debate Argentina's foreign policy only until 10 p.m. today, and that dead- at key points on the eastern front, . ... * t« __ i J rtrtwiwrt Kn fnrn Motorcade Cancelled; Student Cars Sought There will be no motorcade to the railroad terminal tonight. To have carried out such enthusiastic plans might easily have placed the university in a defensive position, that of explaining to the public large-scale waste of gasoline and rubber in the face of national scarcity. Instead, rally chairmen are issuing a call for voluntary transportation of the football squad which leaves for the station tonight at 6. Managers have been unable to obtain busses for the purpose, and the only remaining alternative is to call upon the ‘ student body to supply passenger cars. Bruce Graham, rally chairman, asks that persons willing to drive players to the station leave notice in the office of Bob McKay, ASSC president, not later than 3:30 p.m. today. McKay’s office will accept notification by phone or by consultation. The office is located on the second floor of the Student Union. This is a last-minute plea on the part of student officers to obtain necessary transportation that cannot be provided by the city. Fifteen or twenty sedans should be sufficient, although two-passenger cars will be used if student response is inadequate. Remember, there will be no rip-roaring motorcade to the station, but a lot of football players will have to walk if Trojan spirit ebbs when it is most needed. Stalingrad Push by Nazis Red Volga Flotilla Annihilates Part of Enemy Battalions MOSCOW, Wed., Sept. 30— (U.P.) — The new drive launched by two German divisions and 150 tanks in the northwestern outskirts of Stalingrad has been halted and the Germans have lost 1500 men and 29 tanks in one day’s fighting there, the Soviet high command announced today. German tanks and infantry, supported by airplanes, made one attack after another in that sector all day Tuesday and at nightfall the Russians still were holding their original positions, the midnight communique revealed. SHIPS SHELL INFANTRY Warships of the Soviet Volga flotilla annihilated parts of two German infantry battalions, the communique said. Earlier front dispatches had reported that German artillery was systematically bombarding the Volga crossings at Stalingrad from newly-won heights in the northwestern part of the city. The communique said Soviet troops still were “engaged in active fighting operations’’ farther northwest of Stalingrad, where their week-long counter-offensive has threatened to turn the German flank. In that sector a single Russian unit has slain 2000 Germans and destroyed 49 tanks and 18 field guns in three days of fighting, the high command revealed. PRISONERS QUOTED German prisoners were quoted as saying that one nazi division and a motorized infantry division have been routed in that three-day battle and that some companies (normally containing about 250 men) had only 15 or 20 survivors. In the Mozdok sector of the Caucasus, 350 Germans were killed, 11 tanks destroyed and a number of attacks repulsed, the communique (Continued on Page Four) War Conclave Raubenheimer Cites Compulsory Attendance for Meeting to Discuss Reserve Programs; Procurement Offices to Speak Tuesday by David Hemphill A compulsory assembly for all men students of the university has been called by Dean Albert S.

HUMOR MEMORABLE line passed without any further ac tion by the chamber. The resolution calling for ratification of the Rio de Janeiro conference’s recommendation was proposed by radical deputy Raul Da-monte Taborda, long one of Argentina's anti-axis leaders. The chamber vote on the resolution climaxed a foreign policy debate at which radical deputy Manuel Rodriquez Arava urged the chamber to ratify the resolutions aodpted at the Pan-American conference at Rio de Janeiro last January.

What is the real *tory discretion “In view of the fact that the period of offensive operations by the United Nations now is approaching.” Churchill added that speculation on future allied offensive operations was equally undesirable whether it was based on inference or purported inside information. “Will that be conveyed to Mr. Willkie?” a member shouted from the floor, an obvious reference to Wendell L. Willkie’s plea during his Moscow visit for a second front as soon as military leaders deem it feasible. Responding to MacDonald’s request, the prime minister said: “I welcome - this opportunity of again emphasizing the undesirability of public statements or speculation as to the time or place of future allied offensive operations.” Meanwhile a high British officer broadcast to France another of the series of invasion warnings. He said the offensive would begin on the day the allies are certain of achieving their goal—the total defeat of Germany. Pan-American Croup to Elect Officers Today The Pan-American league will elect officers for the current year this afternoon at 4 p. m. in the Student Union lounge. The organization will also initiate new members, and will discuss a general program for activities during the year. Leila Tenney, last semester’s president, announced that the club plans to have a large membership. No language or scholastic requirements are necessary to join the group, and the purpose of the organization is to further good relations between the American continents. The league plans to have a varie'ty of programs during the year, presenting Latin American artists, statesmen, and musicians. Included on the list of guests that the league plans to have during the year are Carmen Miranda, Brazilian singer; Cesar Romero, movie actor; De-si Arnaz, Cuban singer and dancing star; Jose Iturbi, internationally known Spanish pianist; and many other Spanish-American persona lities from all the fields of life. All persons interested in joining the league are requested to come to the Student Union lounge at 4 p.m. this afternoon. Graduate Elected Mu Phi President Margarette Walker, former president of Mu Nu chapter of Mu Phi Epsilon, music honor society, recently was elected first national vice-president of that organization at its national convention held in Denver, Colo. Miss Walker, ’37 graduate of School of Music, will assume special i charge of Pacific coast Mu Phi | Epsilon activities. ALASKA DEFENSE COMMAND HEADQUARTERS, Sept. 28.—(Delayed)—(U.E)—U. S. and Canadian airmen, in their first joint attack on the Aleutians, blasted Japanese aircraft, submarines, and cargo ships in Kiska harbor last Friday without losing a plane, it was revealed today. The fighters and bombers, swooping out of an overcast sky to catch Japanese seaplanes on the water, destroyed several single-float fighters, wrecked possibly eight out of 10 cruiser-type ships, setting one afire, and strafed two submarines, one of which surfaced during the attack. CHENNAULT SCORES Returning airmen revealed how fighter squadrons led by Maj. Wilbur Miller, Livingstone, Tex., and Maj. Jack Chennault, son of Brig. Gen. Claire Chennault, commander of U. S. air forces in China, circled the submarines like American-plains Indians circled in attaching a wagon train. Miller’s squadron led off. sighting a submarine and forming a circle with the undersea craft on its outer edge. Each plane blasted away with its cannon as it circled the sub. repeating the performance three times before it submerged. Chen-nault’s squadron used similar tactics on a second submarine. None could say how badly the submarines were damaged. JAP DOWNED Chennault, using tricks that his father taught the famed “Flying Tiger” squadron in China, shot down one of three Japanese planes which tried to intercept the attackers. Kenneth Boomer of Ottawa, commander of the RCAF squadron, got the second as fliers gunned Jap anti-aircraft positions and Lieut. Gerald R. Johnson, Eugene, Ore., shot the third from the tail of a plane piloted by Lieut. Col. Charles McCorkle, San Antonio, Tex., a group commander. the various reserve enlistment programs. Because of this meeting, all classes in all divisions of the university will be dismissed between 9:50 a.m. and noon. All men students, enlisted or otherwise, will be required to attend this assembly. It has been pointed out by reserve corps commanders that .the armed forces of the United States are interested in students continuing their education, and then offering their services after they have been graduated. This is necessary because many branches of the fighting forces require from .their personnel the technical skills gained by a higher education. Therefore, the army and navy intend to keep a substantial number of students in college. CROSS-SECTION GIVEN The purpose of the procurement committee is to give college students throughout the country a cross-section of all the different programs in which they may enlist and still continue their schooling. The army, navy, marine corps, coast guard, and the army and navy air services will each have a representative on campus to explain in full the details of their programs. Following .this meeting, separate rooms will be set aside for the different representatives in order that students may come to them and ask questions about points in the various programs which might not be clear. The representatives will be in rooms 321 and 322 and in th* three dining rooms of the Student Union building. ATTENDANCE IMPERATIVE It is imperative that all men, whether or not they have already enlisted in a reserve program, attend this assembly because several changes of great importance have been made in the various programs. The reserve plans will be explained in their new forms at this meeting. All women students are requested to attend the assembly for women in the law auditorium at the same hour as announced by Miss Helen Hall Moreland, counselor of women. List was ousted from his Balkan command a month ago for having criticized Von Bock's tactics in southern Russia.) Field Marshal Georg von Kuech-ler has taken over the northern German army, replacing Field Marshal Wilhelm Ritter von Leeb, who failed to take Leningrad after more than a year's siege, Stockholm said. Due to the cancellation of tonight’s motorcade, Trojan Knights will convene at the SAE house. 5:30 p.m., for the first regular meeting of the semester. Dinner will precede the meeting. President Bruce Graham announced. The Knight cabinet, Graham advised, will convene at 5 p.m. for a pre-meeting discussion. Speed Law Goes In Force SACRAMENTO. Sept. 29—(l'.P)— A 35 mile per hour speed limit will be enforced in California starting Thursday, it was announced tonight by Director of Motor Vehicles James M. Carter, despite an Informal opinion of Attorney General Earl Warren that the lowered limit cannot go into effect without a special session of the legislature. First Music Hour Features Crofe Masterpieces of Johann Sebastian Bach, Ferde Grofe, and Johann Strauss will be presented j at the season's first university listening hour in Bovard auditor-j ium at 12:10 today.

He also visited Belem and he intends to stop at Recife en route home. “Natal will be one of the biggest bases after the war as a great increase in air travel will make it the principal jumping-off spot during the winter,” he said. The Secretary said “Brazil is and always has been our ally and I am here to further cooperation between our two nations.” He discounted rumors that axis submarines were based at Martinique or French Guiana and said it was his impression they were based in France. — “With a radius of 12,000 miles and capable of sailing for 45 days, it Is not a question of fuel and food but whether the crews can stand the strain,” he said. Women Wanted to Sell Wampus at Chapel Hour All girls who are Interested in selling the Wampus today for activity points should report to Durward Howes in 203 Student Union building at 9:45 this morning. It is traditional that sorority wompn sell the magazine each month, and a cup is presented to the house maintaining the best sales record.
