Dr. Lindquist stated that because
of the peculiarly unsettled condi-

world, teachers about to embark upon
their profession are faped with a far
greater responsibility than the mem-

The thirty-seventh annual meet-
ing of the Michigan Municipal League
will be held in Ann Arbor early in
September, it was announced by Har-

It is expected that 300 officials

Urges No Delay Of
Final Health Examj
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director
of the University Health Service,
announced today that all students ex-
pecting to undergo a physical ex-
amination before the end of school,
should not wait until the last few
days.
It has been the practice of students
during the last few years to put off
attending to this matter until late
in the school year. This results. in
the overworking of the Health Serv-
ice staff, and is inconvenient for the
student who has to spend so much,
time waiting, he pointed out.
