HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS hook, War /•Point Plan Wartime Magna Carta of Education ^ Is 15 Resolutions ' By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON — Drastic stream' lining of education to meet war needs - and avoid the pitfalls which gave •( education such a setback in World ,,War 1 is under way. The wartime Magna Carta of higher education will be the 15 resolutions recently adopted by tho congress of 1,000 college presidents in Baltimore. The group which will administer it and work with individual colleges and school systems will be the Olfice of Education wartime commission here in Washington. Appointed by John W. Stiidebaker, U. S. Commissioner of Education, at the request of Federal Security Administrator Paul V. McNutt, the commission already is in high gear. Some of the things in immediate prospect are: 1. Reduction of the college course to three and possibly two and a half years, in order to give youth its degrees and a completed education before it is called into the army or into civilian defense and wartime industries. This speedup has been going on in West Point and Annapolis for more than n year. As in the case of those institutions, six day weeks, full summer terms, and an acceleration in all courses by stripping them of frills and nonessentials are expected to do the trick. - 2. A vast expansion of military training, with full college credit for such work. There has been no hint ,. that colleges and universities again will be converted into fulltime military institutions as they were by the Student Army Training Corps in the last war. However, if it develops later that such a drastic move is necessary, the nucleus of the S. A. T. C. will be ready to again turn every fraternity house into 'a barracks and college campuses into armed camps. 3. A far greater emphasis on physical education with a view to building every youth into the tough physical specimen that can stand the rigors of! war in the field and at home. The report that a million young men have been deferred in the draft because: Crew Among Dead in Airliner Crash _ (NEA Telcmop) The three crew members were among the 22 who lost their lives when n giant T.

British Sub in Daring Attack Out of Torpedoes, Submarine Makes Surface Attack By PAUL MANNING NKA Service Stuff Correspondent A NORTH SEA SUBMARINE BASE, —Straight ahead, out across the body of water which stretches from this rjiin-swept base to the coastline opposite, is a German life line. It sweeps from the iron ore mines of Narvik, in Norway, down to the wluirf sheds which line the southernmost coast of the crescent-shaped Bay of Biscay. To cut that life-line is the job of the squat, low-lying submarines, being fulccl and re-fitted nt the docksidc of this estuary. It is not easy. A submarine patrol can be long, nerve-shattering time. Rain and fog often blanket this North Sea, which winter winds can whip into 40-foot waves that make rudder nad propeller control impossible, if you've the temerity to surface after n German ship in such weather. Shy, apologetic, 26-year-old Lt. Dennis of His Majesty's Navy; attached to this submarine flotilla, explained this as we clambered down the slippery, oil-covered rungs of a steel ladder into a torpedo room on inspection tour. In eighteen months tin's submarine had been through plenty. The Mediterranean first, the North Sea later, re-fitting now. They were tearing the engines apart, painting the heavy metal doors of tho twin forward tubes, getting ready for the next trip out. Gunning for Nazi Freighters The last lino-cutting trip out, Dennis said, had been worthwhile. It made up for the inactivity of two previous trips. The Germans send their freighters down the coast in groups and for long weeks nothing happens, but this lime they intercepted part of a convoy. Along the surface by night, and below by day, they had proceeded to the area which was to bo their patrol zone, unless something forced them back to base. En route once, they had received from "shore-operations" what Dennis terms "a tinkle by radio." Except for that cryptic lono message, they were on their own, as completely cut off as the crew of a giant four- cngined bomber, fighting a slow passage through bad skies to Berlin and back. In steady, monotonous fashion they had moved closer to the zone and the AWRICHT MEN LET'S GO PEARL BOR WEVE GOT A JOB TO DO German shore. The fog and the rain obscured their vision most days, but it also permitted them to surface more frequently and let the fresh, cold, North Sea air flow down through the open hatchway. One nightfall they were on the surface, one mile from the German-occupied coast. Tho stars were out and (he sea had abated and from this close distance Ihoy had no trouble visualizing Die stcel-hclmeted artilleryman who stood restlessly by the side of guns and searchlights which guarded that strip of high cliffland. The German convoy broke slowly from out of a mantle of light fog, Dennis said, holding the Captain and himself transfixed. Then the spell ended. A sharp order, nnd their sub was sliding below the surface, headed for the enemy vessels. Swiftly they drew closer to shore. The convoy was hugging the high- wiillcd shore lino which broke almost straight to a groat depth down into the water below. At four hundred yards from land, the Captain barked "Port torpedo—fire!" They could hear the terrific explosion which followed a short mo- ment later. "That freighter must have gone 100 foot in the. air," Dennis said. "All munitions, probably, for the destruction was so complete. Whole lorries were kissed to an incredible height, and for that one moment as I looked through the periscope I felt sick." Sinking a Ship With Gun Fire They had twisted their course by then. A Gorman cruiser was moving in and out, trying to locate thorn, but it's hard to sec a periscope at night. They sank one more ship and then there were- no torpedoes. But they had shells, so they submerged. Dennis snicl many times they hod rehearsed unlimbering their gun, for just such a situation, but never had it worked so smoothly. Calmly, in a line before the steel- runged ladder, the gun crew nnd handlers stood. The Captain looked around once, gave the signal to blow all tanks and then with a rush the submarine burst to the surface. The crew was up on deck fast, tearing nway the muzzle and breech covers and in one motion shells were being passed upward. Before the enemy's guns could get their range, ten fatal rounds had been poured into tho side of the nearest German ship, the men had scrambled back down the hatch, and then they were fighting for depth. Through (he periscope they saw n German ship racing toward them. Dennis said Hint tin the Water mutinied slowly around the conning tower he thought they would never gel below. "I watched the depth gauge. We could hear the propellers racing overhead and then came the depth charges. The boat just guvc n shudder and kept going. But it was a strain for some time, always wiiiling for that next one.
