Dr. Cyrus C. Strugis Dr. Cyrus C. Sturgis, director of Simpson Memorial Institute, and chairman of the University Department of Internal Medicine, has two songs in service. First Lt. Cyrus C. Sturgis, jr., is in the aviation branch, Army Intelligence, assigned to Civil Government Division. He enlisted three years ago, and when last heard from was in England. Ensign Samuel P. Sturgis enlisted 18 months ago. He is stationed at the Atlantic City Naval Air Base. Dr. Strugis gives sound reasons for buying War Bonds. "It is a patriotic duty and obligation," he says. "Moreover they are an ideal investment for a professional man, being safe and having a good rate of interest."

Osias Zwerdling has bought a $5,000 War Bond in the Fifth War Loan for his son Corporal Joseph Zwerdling, now in charge of a personnel office of the Army coastal guard. Joseph was formerly an assistant Michigan attorney general. Mr. Zwerdling makes this earnest War Bond appeal: "Every man, woman, and child has the responsibility of contributing to the success of the sale of War Bonds as one of the means of assuring victory for our armed forces. Let us buy more and more War Bonds, because buying them is the best investment in human values, in the future of our country. Let us remember and repeat the slogan of the present campaign 'Back the Attack, Buy More Than Before!' "We shall have a greater share in Victory by responding loyally and whole-heartedly to the Fifth War Loan appeal. Thus we show our faith, faith in ourselves, in our government, in our fighting men, and in the invasion."

NAVY HOLDS BOND DRIVE: Jack Kaufman (left), Navy V012 student, Lt. E. W. Oliver, USNR, of the Naval Architecture group, and Lt. Paul L. Blansett, USNR, bond co-ordinator for West Quadrangle, are examining the evidence of the quadrangle's special Fifth War Loan Drive, from July 1 to 8. Kaufman has purchased $2,5000 worth of bonds, but Oliver is stroking the tail of the Red Rooster for good luck because his group is ahead in the drive. The Red Rooster is the enlisted Navy man's symbol for the best battalion in various phases of Navy work and usually the battalion awarded it gets special privileges.

Rev Frank J. McPhillips, pastor of St. Mary's Cahtolic students chapel, is carrying on alone at the chapel because his assistant Rev. Bernard Kearns, is now a chaplain in the Navy with the rank of lieutenant junior grade. Fr. McPhillips, in addition to his duties at the chapel, has been appointed by Bishop O'Hara, Cahtolic Military Delegate, as axiliary chaplain of all military establishments on the University campus. Says F. McPhillips: "I am continuing to buy War Bonds because it is the only direct sacrifice that I have been asked to make. And if it hurts a little to buy an extra one, I know that it will make me feel a little less ashamed of my security when I read of the sacrifices our boys are making on every front."

Rev. C. W. Carpenter is pastor of the Second Baptist Church and president of the Ann Arbor Ministerial Association. He is buying an extra War Bond in the Fifth War Loan and here are his reasons: "I am buying an extra War Bond: First because there are over 500,000 American Negroes now serving in the armed forces of our country and 25 of them have gone out from the Second Baptist Church, of which I am pastor. One, my nephew, is serving in the Navy. I feel it my duty as an American citizen to support them and the millions of other young Americans who are fighting all over the world for the freedom of all peoples. "Second, I am buying an extra War Bond that the freedom for which the American Negro is fighting alongside other American soldiers shall not be denied him at home. And that equal opportunities may be offered to all Americans in a better post0war world, regardless of color."
