To the Members of the Faculty:
The invitation extended to the high school principals and teachers a
year ago to visit the University of Michigan classes, especially in freshman
subjects, during the sessions of the Schoolmasters' Club has been renewed.
These visits will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this
week, land it is felt that such contact should prove of mutual benefit to both
the high schools and the University. The intention is to allow the high school
teachers to see for themselves the type of work required of their students
during the first year at the University, and to provide the university in-
structors with the opportunity of acquainting themselves with the problems
of the high school student in making the transition from high school to col-
lege. The cooperation of the instructors will be greatly appreciated.

Meng Talks On
China, Effects Of War
Upon Its Inhabitants
"China's civil war is going to get
somewhere," said Paul C. Meng, in his
speech at Natural Science auditor-
ium yesterday afternoon. "But it
cannot be fought in a day," he con-
tinuedl, "and the people of Chi~a are
so anxious to settle this question once
and for all that they are now willing
to settle down for a while and,.see it
Meng, who has just returned from
an extensive trip aroundi the world,
believes that his native country has
been remarkablyimproved thly the
new political developmn~nts, that ed-
ucationally and economically China
has never been better off. There is
stupendous progress in all lines ac-
cording to the speaker, who is secre-
tary for the Student Chritian assoc-
iation in North America. "There are
over 6000 women now holding posi-
tions of officers in the Nationalist
army, women are now jurists and jus-
tices of the courts. and are leaders in
politics and ibusiness."'
"The lower classes are now read-
ing the newspapers, and are intense-
ly interested in the changes overcom-
ing their country. In spite of the os-
tensible poverty and desolation, there
is an underlying reason for the suc-
cess of the poorly equipped Nation-
alist army against the superiorly
equipped Northern group.",
