FRESHMAN FAILS IN TRY FOR FINLAND'S FIGHTING FORCES
Sad news came from Washington yesterday for William J. Parker '43, latest undergraduate volunteer for the Finnish Army.
In a letter acknowledging "with the thanks of the Republic of Finland your very generous offer of services to aid in out fight against the unprovoked assault of Communistic Russia," Per Zilliacus, military attache of the Finnish Legation, told Parker that only skillful technicians could be used.
Explaining that it is impossible for United States citizens to enlist as active soldiers in this country because of the present neutrality law, the letter added that any person who pays his expenses across would be accepted.
"Naturally, I am extremely disappointed at this turn of events," stated Parker last night, "but if other interested students will join me, we may be able to follow Kermit Roosevelt's example by forming a volunteer regiment."
