GOVERNMENTAL ID
GIVEN 125 VETERANS
PROF. F.B WAR COUNSELOR
FOR TOCATIONAL
BOAR])
One hundred twenty-Ave men, dis-
abled in war service, are attending
the University due to financial assist-
ance from the government, according
to Prof. F. B. Wahr, who is ctinselor
for the Federal Board of VocationalE
Training here.
The men are divided into two
groups, and ly far the larger percent-
age are in section two. The govern-.
ment pays for tuition and books for
these men, and in addition allows
them $100 per month for sustenance.
Section three men are allowed only
tuition and books. Men in section
two forfeit their compensation under
the War Risk act, while attending the
University, but section three men are
not so affected.
The disabled veterans attending
the University are mostly sophomores
and freshmen, according to Professor
Wahr. A great many of them are
taking business radministration, he
says.
Checks from Washington for the
men come to Prof. Wahr and are
given out by him every two weeks.
RENT PROFITEERS
ALSO AT ILLINOIS
That college cities other than Ann
Arbor are infested with rent prof-
iteers is shown by recent dispatches
from Urbana, the home of the Uni-
versity of Illinois. Reports state that
in some instaaces landlords are
charging as high as $50 for a double
room, thereby making a profit of 13b
per cent.
An investigation by Dean Thomas
Clark of the university is under way.
After consuling with business aad
real estate men about the city, Dean
Clark has come to the conclusion
that $25 is the maximum price that
should be charged for a first-class
double raoml.
The Daily Illisi, the university
publication, is co-operating with
Dean Clark in exposing the rent hogs.
Should this fail to bring the prices
down, it will be necessary for the
university to ask the state legisla-
ture to erect dormitories to house the
students.

STATE WORK BEING
DONE BY ROAD LAB
"Because the University highway
laboratory has been taken over by the
State Highway department, the lab-
oratory will have an exceptionally
busy year," was the statement of
Prof. John H. Bateman of the high-
way engineering department yester-
day. The laboratory i now the state
headquarters for the testing of mate-
rials.
EAccording to Professor Bateman,
the tests for the period from October,
1919, until June, 1920, totaled 881, of
which 725 were made for the state.
FOUR NEW COURSES
OFFERED ENGINEERS
Four new courses are being offered
this year by the modern language de-
partment of the engineering school.
Two are in French and two are in
Spanish, both being for students who
have already completed the language
requirements of their courses.
Course 5, in both French and Span-
ish, is for the study of advanced com-
position and conversation. Course 6,
in both subjects, offers in English a
study of the French and Spanish lit-
erature.
These latter courses are unique be-
cause they require no previous knowl-
edge of the language. Consequently,
a student who has been taking
French may take course 6 in Spanish,
and those who have been taking
Spanish may take course 6 in
French.
