FRIDAY, MAY 9, 1941
VOL. L No. 155
Publication in the Daily Official
Bulletin is constructive notice to all
membeo' of the University.
Procedure for Deferment and Post-
ponement of Military Service: Effec-
tive May 5, 1941. Students who wish
the University to participate in their
request for deferment (Class 2-A, Oc-
cupational Deferment) should seek
the counsel of their faculty advisors.
Students are not to be deferred or
their induction postponed in groups,
but the draft boards are authorized
to consider each -student's request
and weigh the evidence presented by
the University. Students who have
filed their questionnaires and re-
ceived their classifications are now
classified in 1-D (all students). They
are to be reclassified by their draft
boards before, the end of the college
year, certainfy before July 1. The
authority to place a student in a par-
ticular classification lies with the
local draft board. It is the responsi-
bility of the University to assist the
students and the draft boards so
that decisions can be made intelli-
gently. The attitude of the Univer-
sity authority may vary from a state-
ment of fact with no suggestion as
to deferment or postponement to a
detailed interpretation of the stu-
dent's record and a definite recom-.
mendation for his deferment. TheE
individual consideration of each stu-
dent's request will be based upon
three factors: scholarship, time of
graduation, and relation of field of
study to National Defense as it
concerns the national health, safe-
ty, and interest. The better the
scholarship, the shorter the time be-
fore receiving a degree for which the
student is registered, and the closer
his work is to the needs of the Na-
tional Defense program, the stronger
will be the recommendation of the
University authority to the local draft
The National Headquarters of the
Selective Service System has an-
nounced a list of fields of study in
which there is a shortage of pre-
pared men and of those in training
as follows: chemistry, engineering,
dentistry, pharmacy, physics, medi-
cine, biology and bacteriology, geol-
ogy, geophysics, meteorology, hydrol-
.- I

ogy and cartography. Another list is
in preparation which will be pub-
lished as soon as it is received from
Washington. No doubt there arej
many other fields than those namedj
above which are necessary for na-j
ional defense. The University ad-
visors are charged with the task of
making recommendations in accord-
ance with their judgment.
The student should prepare a state-
ment of his request in affidavit form
addressed to his draft board and pre-
sent it to his advisor as indicated in
the following schedule:
Collegd'of Literature, Science, and
the Arts: Students who have been
admitted to concentration should con-
sult their concentration advisors,
whose statement or recommendations,
after being approved by the depart-
mental chairmen will be forwarded
to Dean E. H. Kraus for review and
preparation for transmittal to the
draft boards. Students not yet eli-
gible for admission to concentration
should consult Professor Arthur Van
Duren, whose statements or recom-
mendations will be forwarded to Dean
E. H. Kraus for review and prepara-
tion for transmittal to the draft
College of Engineering: Students
should consult the heads of their
chosen professional departments, who
will forward their recommendations
to Dean I. C. Crawford for review,
action and transmittal to the draft
Medical School: Students, internes,
and those accepted for admission to
the Medical School for the fall of
1941 should consult Dean A. C. Furs-

Forsythe's Advice To Stude s
Beware Of Poison Ivy, Blisters

If its about 12 to 18 inches high, a
rather erect shrub with three-leafed
shoots, bright green in color with
possibly irregular spots on the leaves
or some berries, don't pluck it for
your flower vase-it's poison ivy.
This is the advice of Dr. Warren'

ice, who reports that the annual trek
of hibernating campusites going back
to nature has begun to file into the
Beware of the above described
plant, and if you think that you have
been exposed to poison ivy, wash with
a good strong laundry soap, or even
gasoline or alcohol which should be
followed by a soap and water rinsing,
Dr. Forsythe suggested.
In unusual cases it has been pos-
sible to catch poison ivy by standing
in smoke from a prairie being burned
out of the weed.'
With the advent of mild weather
many students are trying to get a
head start on that attractive coat of
sun tan.
Dr. Forsythe warned that students
should be careful not to try to take
the burn all at once but in gradual,

doses. Bright sunlight, particularly
on the water where reflection gives
double exposure, is to be guarded
