f SUNDAY, JANUARY 4, 1942 MIAMI DAILY NEWS-RECORD — MIAMI, OKLA. COLLEGES GET BIG WAR ROLE 50,000 Men Annually for Naval Reserve Sought; McNutt Points Way By EDWAKD O. ETHELL BALTIMORE, Jan. 3— (IP)— The nation's colleges, called upon for a minimum 50,000 men nanually for naval reserve officer training:, were told today they would have to play a major role in keeping the road to Singapore, vital to American victory open "at all costs." Federal Security Administrator Paul V. McNutl told grey-haired college .presidents and deans: " 'You are in the army now'— that or a Na-/,i straight-jacket later. Kvcry resource of the nation must he geared to victroy." Stating that if the Philippines were saved it would ho hy the "skill and ingenuity of Douglas MaoArlhur and by the grace of God—not by any wisdom and foresight of American policy in the years following the Insl great war," McNutt continued: "The fall of Manila stands as an indictment of fhe international thinking of educated Americans. We built for peace. . . . Promised them fr'eedoiTi—as though we were omniscience itself. But at no time did vye look at the total situation realistically enough to create tho conditions upon which real independence and freedom—real security and opportunity—must depend. We built for peace in an ivory tower." McNutt, former governor-general of the Philippinsc, warned educators to abandon that tower and "puerile pacifism"—to realize that "Singapore is a road to American victory" that must be kept open "at all costs." "You, universities and colleges, with all your resources, will help to keep the road through Singapore o p o, n," McNutt declared. "With their lives in many cases your students and mine will defend it." Joseph W. Barker, special assistant to the assistant secretary of tfie navy, stated that in recruiting personnel for a two-ocean navy "some interference with normal college programs is inevitable." He declared the following men were needed as junior officers each year: 30,000 for V-5 flight training who have completed .sophomore studies; 7,000 seniors and 7,000 juniors for lino and engineer- Condensed Statement of the Security Bank & Trust Co.

S—(/P)— The prospect thai the government in time to come, mignt find it necessary to commandeer .private automobiles for war service was placed today in the realm of "the possible" rather than "the probable." This interpretation eased somewhat the fears expressed by some automobile owners throughout the country that they might as well count on ultimate sei/.ure of their machines. Price Administrator Leon Henderson yesterday described such commar.deering as a "gloomy prospect," but he went on to say that Britain and Germany, at war for more than two years and with much fewer automobiles than bas the Uniled States, had not, yet re- wMl S01 ' tci ' t" commandeering. 0PM officials explained today that this country, in its tremendous war effort, must be prepared to face any contingency. But, they continued, there, was no reason that the future possibility of the government's taking over .private ' n \ machines should affect purchase or sale of used ears now. Some cities reported that citizens had declined to buy used cars in fear that the government soon would take them over. Henderson explained that only fiiiO/HIO new cars would be available for sale to private consumers after automobile production i.; shut down next month for the duration of the war, n number insufficient for the needs of physicians and surgeons, police, fire departments and similar public necessity activities.
