A.S.M.E. Will
Hold Meeting
Prof. Boston To Discuss
Membership Advantages
With New Members
The student branch of the Amer-
ican Society of Mechanical Engineers
wll hold its first meeting of the sem-
ester at 7:30 p.m. today in the Mich-
igan Union. Prof. 0. W. Boston, bon-
orary chairman of the organization,
will discuss the advantages of student
membership to newcomers.
One advantage of membership, Pro-
fessor Boston revealed in inviting all
mechanical engineers to attend the
opening meeting, is that student
members, upon graduation may enter
thle parent society without paying
the ten dollar initiation fee which
is levied upon those not entering
through the student organizations.
This opportunity extends only to
March 19 of the current year, Pro-
fessor Boston said.
A much more important advantage
incident to membership is that of or-
ganization of the members of the
profession, Professor Boston Oointed
out. "It is evident that the individuals
wpo qualify as mechanical engineers
can function better as such if they
are joined into a body whose aims,
ethics, and policies can be expressed
as the consolidated sentiments of a
united group, rather than as the b
fiefs of a number of independents,"
Professor Boston stated.
The principal feature of the pro-I
gram for the meeting will be a dis-
cussion will be led by Prof. C. L. Dahl-
,strom of the department of engineer-
ing English.

Report Reveals
Average Health
For January
Forsythe Claims Figures
Show Increase In Use Of
Health Facilities
Students showed good average win-
ter-month health during January.
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director of
the Health Service stated in releas-
ing the regular monthly report.
"Upper respiratory infections have
been prevalent during the past
month, but the student body has
been no more infected than in other
years," Dr. Forsythe said. "Compli-
cations have been no more frequent
than usual, and we have been for-
tunate in having no deaths of stu-
dents so far this year."
Dr. Forsythe said that the figures
continued to show the general rising
trend in use of Health Service facili-
ties. Dispensary calls numbered
10,092, a rise of 241 over the corres-
ponding month of the previous year.
There were 14 more infirmary pa-
tients; 138 more dietitian conferenc-
es; 395 more calls for treatment by
the dispensary nurse.
Small rises were noted in dentist
consultations and otologist consulta-
tions, and slight decreases in pres-
criptions filled and physiotherapy
treatments. Pneunonia and "con-
tagious" diseases numbered four,
acute appendicitis cases eight, and
colds 1,169.

teacher, she feels that hers was a!
tragic case of maladjustment. "If
it had been possible for me to have
discussed the requirements of an ef-
ficient teacher with one who had the
training and ability to point out these
essentials and help me to analyze my
own chances of fulfilling them, I
should never have tried to teach. So
much more depends on the person-
ality than on the 'theory and tests'
of teaching."
Several students suggested that
two years or so devoted to survey
courses exclusively would not only
be invaluable as cultural background,
but would serve as definite material
for a decision on a vocation.
"If I had had the opportunity to
get advice from someone who knew
about several lines and had not se-
cured his knowledge of them fronT
books, I might not have wasted such
a large part of my time since grad-I
uation," writes a graduate who pre-
pared to teach modern languages

and now thinks she is better prepared
to be an office worker.j
Though a patriotic U: of M. fan, a
graduate makes the suggestion that
the University "might have gathered
the 1932 graduates together before
graduating them and told them what
the conditions were in the outside
world. Living in a college atmos-
phere, I didn't realize there was a
depression," he said.
A compulsory vocational guidance
survey, to inform students of the pos-
sibilities existing in each field, as well
as an aptitude test, is the suggestion
