Guidance Clinic
To Initiate New
Institute Will Undertake
Mental Hygiene Program
In Section Of Monroe
As part of its campaign to de-,
crease delinquency in Michigan com-
munities, and to develop new meth-
ods and techniques for treating the
socially maladjusted, the Michigan
Child Guidance Institute is under-
taking an experimental project in
Monroe which will attack the prob-
lem from a new angle, according to
Prof.. Lowell Carr, director of the
Michigan Child Guidance Institute.
Unlike other research projects, this
one, by means of a mental hygiene
program, is attempting to eliminate
the conditions producing maladjust-
ment rather than following the us-
ual procedure of treating children
and pareits after they have become
social misfits.
The section of Monroe chosen by
.he Institute comprises approximate-
ly 1,000 families and is cut off from
the rest of the city. Those under
observation will come mainly from
the low income class, and will differ
widely in race and nationality.
Employing slightly different meth-
ods and objectives than those used
by Dr. Clifford Shaw of the Institute
of Juvenile Research in Chicago in
his area project, the Michigan Child
Guidance Institute will follow Dr.
Shaw's main technique of utilizing
local resources in order to - get its
mental hygiene project across..
The project will go into effect as
soon as the details and plans of or-
ganization have been approved by
the steering committee, which will
meet Thursday.
The University faculty. members
on the steering committee include:
Prof. Lowell Carr, Director of the
Michigan Child Guidance Institute
James Stermer, Community Co-ordi-
nator for the Michigan Child Guid-
ance Institute, Dr. Wallace Watt,
Field Investigator for the Child Guid-
ance Institute, Dr. Howard McClusky,
Professor of Education, Clark Tib-;

FROM A FLAG-DRAPED rostrum before a joint session of Congress, President Roosevelt made a plea, for na-
tional unity in a war-torn world in his annual address at the opening of the Congressional session. The Presi-
dent told the legislators that "the only important incre ,sc in any rart of the budget is the estimate for national
defence." "Behind the President are Speaker William B. Bankhead (left) of the House and Vice-President
John N. Garner.

It was in the year 1879 that the
Regents of the University called upon
William Harold Payne, then Super-
intendent of Schools in Adrian, to
fill the chair. Although it is true
that a few other schools saw the
needtfor formal training for teach-
ing, the University was the first to
set up a permanent chair devoted ex-
clusively to the Science and Art of
Teaching. For forty years prior to
1879 successive superintendents of
public instruction agitated for the
training of teachers in other subjects
Michigan Band
TO Give Recital
Program To Be Presented
Over Detroit Station
Preceding the annual midwinter
concert, a specially arranged pro-
gram will be broadcast by the Uni-
versity Band over Station WJR De-
troit from Hill Auditorium, 12:15 to
12:45 p.m., Jan. 14.
Guest conductors of the band will
be Dr. Edwin Franko Goldman, con-
ductor of the New York City Gold-
man Bana, and David Bennett, na-
tionally known company and ar-
ranger. Prof. William Revelli; con-
ductor of the University Band, will'
conduct the program in part.
The broadcast has been prepared
as a feature of the annual band and
orchestra clinic which will be con-
vened in Ann Arbor Jan. 13-14.
Although many of the selections
chosen for the broadcast will be
played at 4:15, p.m. the same after-
noon at the annual midwinter con-
cert a studio audience will be, ad-
mitted to . the broadcast. Donn
Chown, student conductor of the
band, will announce the program.

beside pure scholarship. As early as
1849, a bill was introduced in the
Legislature providing for the Michi-
gan State Normal College at Ypsilanti.
President Tappan in 1856 said that
the "highest institutions were neces-
sary to raise up instructors of the
proper' qualifications." As a result,
in 1858, the catalogue included a
course in ancient languages speci-
fically set up for teachers.
When James B. Angell became
president of the University in 1871,
he soon showed that he was sym-
pathetic-toward the idea of training
and professional training for teach-
ers. He felt the need of additional
evidence as to the qualifications of
students when asked to certify for
their competency as teachers in high
schools. He presented the matter to
the Regents for consideration in his
report for 1874.
In that same year special teachers'
diplomas were given students who
were thought to have special fitness
for teaching, as a result of examina-
tions. In 1878 President Angell again
brought forward the subject of pro-
fessional training, and, the follow-
ing year, Payne was tendered the

A new residence for internes who
are in the Uriversity hospital, with
accommodations for 61 house offi-
cer', was opened for occunancy Dec.
As it is now completed, the build-
ing consists of three stories and aj
ground floor and is designed to per-
mit the addition of two more stories.
It is located just to the north of the
Neuropsychiatric Institute with a
well lighted foot-tunnel connecting
it with the Hospital, making possible
quick access to and from rooms.
On the ground floor is a large
well-lighted recreation room with
about 2,000 square feet of floor sur-
face, which can be used for parties,
meetings, cards, billiards or ping
pong. A combination squash and
handball court offers the internes
facilities found in very few similar
buildings in the country.
The remaining floors contain the
living quarters for the internes.
While the majority of the rooms are
single, a few double rooms have been


With President Roosevelt's solemn
promise "to keep the United States
out of the war abroad" vaguely rem-
iniscent of Woodrow Wilson's self-
same declaration in 1916, the more
pessimistic of political observers in-
terpret the President's pledge as an
ominous omen.
If, because of some unlucky com-
bination of circumstances, America
plunges into war, the men who will,
wear the khaki will be drawn from
all walks of life in the first, second
and third drafts. College men will be
among the first to be affected.
The Inquiring Reporters, conscious
that the present day college man is a
sane, level-headed chap not easily
influenced by the blare of martial
music, set out to discover what he
thought about going to war. They.
If the United States were to go to
war tomorrow, would you enlist, sub-
mit to the draft or act in some other
Hugh McVeigb, Jr., '41, "If the}
United States were to go to war, I
probably would enlist immediately
because a commission in the army is
more easily obtained if you enlist
voluntarily rather than wait to be
drafted. In event that I could not
get a commission, I, would do every-
thing in my power to dodge the draft.

First, I would get married. Second,
I would adopt three or four children.
If all that failed, I've always had a
stronger desire to see some of the
islands in the South Seas--without
the company of my wife of course."
Maurice Richards, Grad., "I would
not enlist. If drafted, I would go
unwillingly because up to now, I
see no definite reason why the Unit-
ed States should go to war. We seem
to be taking the same path that
brought us into the last one though..
A Michigan Congressman is trying to
pass a 61 million dollar loan for the
Finns. Such lending buried us so
deep in 1917 that we had to fight to
save that money."
Alan Fleischman, '42L, "I'd enlist
bfecause once Congress declares war,
I'd be in it sooner or later. So-if I
enlist, I could get in the depart-
ment I would wish, namely the navy.
Serving with the navy would find me
protecting the American seacoast-
not fighting in some filthy, lice-
laden trench over there."
Harold Ossepow, Grad., "I'm one
Yank that is not going under any
condition for there are only two con-
ditions: either fighting for Britain or
fighting against Russia. The events
of this decade can only be under-
stood in terms of a struggle between'
world capitalism and world social-
ism-and I'll only fight for one. If
the dirty thirties are not to become
the gory forties, if a decade of dead
ends is not to become a decade of

decadence, the United States, with
vested interests in it, must preserve
the inalienable right of my genera-
tion to live in peace."
Ted King, '40, "I'm a conscientious
objector today because there is no
justification for the United States
becoming involved in the present
conflict. I believe the present war
between Germany and the Allies is
a repetition of the old alignment of
powers. The victorious bloc will sub-
ject the loser and thus sow seeds for
a future conflict. War cannot settle
any problem."

Hi s the Bull's-Eye of Politics

to direct traffic



in your store
:By the judicious use of lighting, it is pos-
sible to LEAD customers to specific
points or displays in your store, and in-
crease the sale of merchandise in that
area. A department store, for example,
changed its ordinary lighting to a corn-
bination of indirect lighting and spot
lighting. The change of lighting was
made in the women's ready-to-wear de-
partment, andtraffic in this section ofthe
store was so increased that additional
salespeople had to be called in and the
sale of featured dresses increased 60%.
* In like manner, light can be used to
div ert traffic to a counter, a single dis-
flay, or through certain desired aisles to
the back of the store. Detroit Edison en-
gineers will gladly explain how you can
use light to control traffic in YOUR store.
There is no charge or obligation. Call
your Detroit Edison office. The Detroit
