Compulsory Class
Atten dance Is Now
Question Of Day
Abolition of compulsory class at-
tendance in colleges, a subject seldom
mentioned two decades ago, has be-
come an issue of the day.
That development seems largely a
result of pioneering by educators like
Robert Hutchins and his Chicago
Plan which allows students to at-
tend classes at their own discretion.
Few schools, however, have fol-
lowed the lead taken by the Univers-
ity of Chicago. The majority of the
nation's colleges, and Michigan is no
exception, still require compulsory'
class attendance in varying degrees.
Although educators discuss the
question among themselves, seldom
have they asked the opinions of their
students, who are most vitally inter-
ested in the "cut-ability" of classes.
The Student Opinion Surveys of
America., an organization sponsored
by the University of Texas, recently
completed a survey on the issue.
The nation's college youth were
asked, "Should complsory class at-
tendance in colleges be abolished?"
Sixty-three and five-tenths per cent
said yes; 36.5 per cent said no.
"Even though the poll revealed a
sizeable majority who favored aboli-
tion of compulsory attendance, the
fact that more than a third opposed
the idea is significant. It 'invalidates
the claim of many faculty members
that practically all students, if given
the opportunity, would want to do
away with compulsory classes," the
directors of the survey remarked.

A library service is one of the many
services rendered by the Hospital
Social Service department to more
than 30,000 sick and convalescent
people who are confined each year to
the University Hospital.
Last year, the library service filled
over 12,000 book and magazine re-
quests from hospital patients. The
librarian makes the rounds of the
wards twice a week at regular times
and her coming is looked forward to
by the patients.
These books help the patients find
new interests while they are con-
fined. Often they do purposeful read-
ing and study subjects that will help
them when they take their places in
the outside world again.
It is in this way, Dorothy Ketcham,
director of the Social Service depart-
ment pointed out, that the Hospital
contributes not only to the physical
health of its patients, but helps them
add totheir fund of knowledge as
well.
Wood Carving Art
RevivedBy WPA
Wood carving, as an art, is being
revived for display purposes in Michi-
gan museums. This work is being done
as part of the state-wide museum
project being conducted with WPA
funds,under the direction of the Uni-
versity Museums
Already Alice in Wonderland, the
March Hare, and the Mock Turtle of
Lewis Carroll's famous story have
been fashioned out of wood for the
Children's Museum in Detroit. The
wood carvers are now working on
statuettes of Michigan animals,
which will be distributed to the vari-
ous Wayside Museums being organ-
ized throughout the state.
The carvers, most of whom were
formerly employed in furniture fac-
tories, are supplied with pictures to
copy. The woods used for the carv-
ings are white pine, red gum, oak,
yellow poplar, and occasionally ma-
hogany.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24-(P)-A

hour by an American-made warplane
destined for export to France sug-
gested today that the United States
Army Air Corps may have been even
more spectacular craft whose per-
formances have been kept secret.
In the matter of improvements,
the latest American military planes
normally are two years or more ahead
of those permitted to be sold abroad,

New York Asked

NEW YORK, Jan. 24 -(m)- The
Herald Tribune says that Thomas
G. Corcoran, adviser to President
Roosevelt, has been attempting to
enlist New York state's delegation to
the 1940 Democratic Convention in
support of either a third term for
the President or, if he does not run,
a candidate of Mr. Roosevelt's choice.
