He told the committee that Admiral William F. ‘ Bill” Halsey, the task force commander who had placed his force under “war orders” as it sailed for Wake island a few days before the attack, had been ordered by him only to “use I your common sense.” But Halsey j had ordered his men to sink “every ! Jap ship they contacted,” and had armed all his planes lor the voyage. Earlier Kimmel told the committee that the Japs had outsmarted our “best brains” in devising the shallow water torpedoes that all but destroyed the U. S. fleet in the attack. The Churchill question came up in open hearing after the committee had excused Kimmel for the day, and he had urged his four man counsel, “let s get the hell out of here.” Ferguson told fellow committeemen he wanted to question Churchill about his Atlantic conference with the late President Roosevelt in 1941, particularly as it concerned Anglo-American far east commitments. Rep. John W. Murphy, D. Pa., protested that Churchill was in this country for a rest. Sen. Scott Lucas. D.. 111., asked Ferguson if he thought it would be fair to call the British leaa?r since he is "a citizen of another country.” “It makes good headlines,” Murphy commented. “I think we should be more confined to what happened at Pearl Harbor than putting I out headlines.” '/Ay hair is red like the f ires 1 light'-arsonist PORTLAND, Jan. 17.—(U.R)—A 17-year-old redhead, Vincent W. Hunt, of Vanport City, today confessed to setting a series of fires near his home because “my hair is red like fire.” Sheriff’s officers said the presence of the red-haired youth at various fires in recent weeks Id to his arrest today. The biggest fires he admitted setting were the No. 1 shopping center, with damages of $140,000, and school-house No. 2, where the loss was §50,000. The total of al lthe fires was in excess of 5200,000. The boy said he liked to see buildings burn and would hide after lighting the buildings and then join by-standers watching the blaze. Religion club plans meet “The various experiences of the Rev. Mr. Harry Burke while in the prison camps of the Philippine islands will be of great interest to all when he addresses a dinner meeting of the Canterbury club next Thursday,” stated Betty Jany, secretary of the organization. The Canterbury club will be host to the Oongregationalist's Plymouth club at this time. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at St. John's parish.

Art fraternity sponsors show Examples of the fine arts, designing, and architecture will be included in the February art show being sponsored by Delta Phi Delta, national art architecture fraternity, under the supervision of Byron Davis. As the purpose of the show is to promote serious lower division art work, the sophomore who demonstrates the most outstanding ability along these lines will be rewarded with prizes of cash, merchandise, and certificate awards. The show will be open to the public as well as to university students and faculty. The College of Architecture and Fine Arts is planning to sponsor a similar show next term. Members of all grades may participate in this event, which ’ is scheduled to run two weeks. The public will be admitted to this show, as to the other.

Dwight D. Eisenhower, army chief of staff, disclosed today that he has banned all further G.l. mass demobilization demonstrations. His order automatically carries the threat of court martial against any offender. Lt. Gen. Robert C. Richardson, so advised officers under his mia-Pacific command at Honolulu. Eisenhower, who revealed the ban in tr~*imony before a senate sub-committee on demobolization, emphasized that individual complaints are not forbidden.’’ “But the time for mass demonstrations is past,” he said. “With publication of the army’s demobilization policy, demonstrations could serve no useful purpose.” The order was foreshadowed Tuesday when he announced the revised demobilization program at a joint meeting of the house and senate. He said then that further demonstrations would serve no was necessary to “replace hvs*»rK useful purpose and that it now with calm judgment and sounu discipline.” First evidence of such an order came Wednesday when Gen. Joseph T. McNarney, U. S. army commander in Europe, forbade further G.l. mass demonstrations. Today, Richardson transmitted a similar order to his mid-Pacific command, telling his officers that “further agitation” in behalf of demobilization “will not be tolerated.” Three enlisted men under his command at Honolulu were confined to quarters pending investigation of their ac-point score reductions were an-bilization since Tuesday — after tivities in behalf of speedy demo-nounced. Meanwhile, It was revealed that the army “fully expects” to ask congress for authority to bring women into the regular army. This disclosure was made by Maj. Gen. Willard S. Paul, army personnel chief. He told the senate subcommittee that Wacs had done such a “grand” job during the war that the army expected to have a smaly group of them in the regular army. They would be volunteers. He gave no other details.

All men participating are expected to wear suits. Selected as the two Sigma Alpha Epsilon songs are “Violets,” and “Pretty Girl.” In view of the fact that Theta Chi was the first house to win both awards in contests past, Jack Stewart, Theta Chi spokesman, felt confident that his fraternity’s selections “Bells of St. Mary’s” and “Soft Shadow,” would prove a winning combination. On the program for Delta Sigma Phi are ‘ Travelers," and "Delta Sig Sweetheart.” “Doing the best we can,” according to Bill Chapman, Pi Kappa will offer ‘Medley,” and “The Dream Girl of Pi Kappa Alpha.” Sigma Chi’s selections for the songfest are “An Irish Jig.” and • The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi."

Phi Sig Sweetheart.” The other Phi Si?ma Kappa song will be “Smoke Rings.” “Alpha Rho Chi Lullaby,” and | “Alpha Rho Chi Hymn,” are the two selections for the program by that fraternity. Confident of a repeated win is David Doll, Delta Tau Delta.

Among special guests which the sponsors of the dance have invited are Amalia Aguilar and the Le-cuona Cuban boys, now appearing in “Night in Havana” at the Mayan theater. They will make their appearance as soon as they can after their last performance tomorrow night.' Senor Jorge Maroto, general consul of Costa Rica, will also be one of the guests. Presented by La Tertulia and the Pan American league in an effort to acquaint SC students with their Pan American friends, the event will get underway with the music of Pinky Arias’ Panamanian orchestra, “Los Magos del Ritmo,” and a rhumba contest in which prizes will be awarded to the winners.

William Mata, known for his in- terpretation of Afro-Cuban songs, such as “Babal,” will sing some for which he is most popular. He has been a singer with Xavier Cougat and several outstanding orchestras. Mexican boleros are to be sung by Fernando Perez Macias, formerly head of XEW, major radio station in Mexico City. Mr. Perez Macias said that upon his return to Mexico in the near future, he would act as a good-wili ambassador because he has seen the importance of Pan American relationships during his visit to this country.
