WILL TEST VET JOB PLACEMENT Demonstration Offices to Open in 7 Cities Chicago, (U.R)--War Manpower Commissioner Paul V. McNutt announced Thursday that demonstration offices would be opened in 7 selected cities Jan. 28 to test out the government's carefully developed techniques of job placement for war veterans. Addressing the American Legion here, McNutt said the 7 job mreaus would be both clearinj louses and testing grounds, and hat by April 1 a veterans' place- nent program would be evtendec o the entire nation that would be 'proved, tested and producinK re- ! suits." i He laid particular emphasis in nis speech on the job needs o.[ "the Dliml, the maimed, the poor in health," and said the WMC had made a particular study of the part they could play in the postwar economy. A counselor for the handicapped will be stationed at each demonstration office to develop the final program that will be used to return wounded veterans to civil life. Stating that the nation owed an obligation to the "thousands of boys who have served faithfully," McNutt spoke of the major needs of returning servicemen: For some, education; for others, mmediate job, or rehabilitation, and uu- dreamed of at the end of other vars," he said. Referring to education and raining, he said the president's proposal now waiting action by congress did not offer a college career for every .veteran but did offer training to those that wan! it. It will cost less per year to p a boy at school or college or training on the job than it did to maintain him on active military duty for the same period," he declared.' "We have not argued ovei the cost of the last. We have not the right to quibble over the cost of the first." URGE LANDS IFOR POLAND Silesia, Pomerania, East Prussia Sought Moscow, (U.R)--Wolna Polska, organ of the union of Polish patriots in Russia, Thursday demanded for post-war Poland the German provinces of Silesia, Pomerania, and East Prussia, as well as the former city of Danzig. ·We have the right to expect the allies to recoguize for Poland her ancient lauds seized by the Germans," Prof. Leon Chwistek said in a Wolna Polska article. An accompanying article written by a soldier serving with the Polish corps in Russia called for the division o£ landed estates, free distribution of land to peasants, and expropriation of industries and mines owned by the Germans in territories reintegrated into Poland after the war. ·· : \Ve must recall that it is completely false that sometime in the historic past we gave up Silesia to the Germans," Chwistek wrote. "Silesia was surrendered to the Silesian princes recognizing Czech suzerainty. "Secondly, we must declare that Pomerania constitutes old Polish land, and that East Prussia was Polish feudal land separated from Poland by treachery. Danzig; was Polish until the partition of Poland. "At the time of the Versailles treaty the problem of German population in Polish territories was one of the most harmful obstacles to a just settlement of the questions with which the western powers were unable to cope. "It must be recognized that the correct solution of this problem has been advanced by the Germans themselves, who openly advocated resettlement of populations."

Many of the Cornell fraternities that formerly bragged that they were "anti-coed" now have been leased as dor- mitorie's for navy V-12 students or as living quarters for women. It's a far cry from 24 years ago when a group of students blamcc the poor showing of the Cornel team on the distractions of the coeds. \Vomen students now outrank civilians in number by nearly 300 The university's entire enrollment including those in military service, is 7.270.
