SPEE Meeting
To Be Openedf
He June 23
Science And Technology
In Engineering Courses
Will Be General Topics
Science and technology in the en-
gineering courses of American col
lgees and universities will be the gen-
era1 topic. of discussion in the forty-
ninth annual Mpeeting of the Society
for the Promotion of Engineering
Education to be held June '23-27 on
the University campus.
Outstanding educators in the field
of engineering from every part of
the United States will highlight the
preliminary program for the meet-
ing, more than 2,000 engineering
teachers from the 'nation's leading
education institutions being expected
here at that time.
Extensive preparations for the pro-
gram entertainment and housing are
being made by the local committe
headed by Prof. E. L. Eriksen of the
engineering mechanics department,
with fifty other faculty men assisting
in the plans.
In addition to the general sessions
featuring addresses by engineers'from
universities and industries, the meet-
ing will also offer conferences on
specific problems in engineering ed-
ucation, as well as inspection trips
to nearby industrial plants and lab-
Among the speakers who will ad-
rdess the meeting are President Alex-

president of Rose Polytechnic Insti-
tute and president of the SPEE; R. A.

fense training for the Unitd States

Price To Play
Foreign Music
Carillonneur Will Feature
International Program
Music featured on today's carillon
program by Prof. Percival Price, of
the School of Music, at 7:15 p.m. will
be international in character.
The French impressionist spirit will
be represented by Claude Debussy's
"The Sunken Cathedral." This com-
position which paints in music a cath-
edral being submerged in the sea,
tolling all the while a majestic chant,
is especially suited for the carillon.
"Awake Sweet Fay," and "In Silent
Night," the first two selections in the'
aerman folk song group, are treated in
the manner of the art song. German
and English students used to sing
in happier days "Upidee," and "Hap-
py Is a Gypsy's Life," which will be
third and fifth songs in this group.
The fourth piece will be "True Love,"
which the young Werther heard on
the carillon.
A Chinese air, called "The Flute,"
is also to be played.
All students who desire informa-
tion concerning the Selective Serv-
ice Act, their status under it, ob-
taining of deferment and post-
ponement and similar matters are
invited to address their questions
to the Selective Service Depart-
ment, The Michigan Daily. A
member of the staff, in collabora-

tion with Prof. Louis A. Hopkins,
will attempt to answer all perti-
nent questions in the columns of
'he Daily.

ore o 'resent Cooley Cane '
At Tong Oil BanquetMay_211

Old Man Tradition will stick an-
other feather in his cap Wednesday,
May 21, when Sigma Rho Tau, engi-
neering speech society, will present
its most outstanding junior with the
famed Coley Cane during the annual
Tung Oil Banquet at the Union.
Named for Dean Emeritus Morti-
mer E. Cooley, the cane is one of two
left in existence, the whereabouts of
the other being unknown.
Once part of a fence around the
':ampus to keep neighboring cows off
the grass, the Cooley Canes took on
new significance one night when a
band of pranksters tore up the fence.
carrying the pickets into Dean Coo-
ley's class the next day, where they
were dubbed "Cooley Canes" by the
Tung Oil Crown Given
Evidently effecting a mass confis-
cation, Dean Cooley used the pickets
as canes for a good many years. InI
the past he has been present for the
presentation ceremony, but it is
doubtful that he will be able to be
on hand this'year.
In addition to this award, another
equally as important will be the pre-
sentation of the Tung Oil Crown to
the faculty member who makes the
best impromptu speech for the occa-

sion. Last year's winner, Prof. A. D.
Moore, of the electrical engineering
department, will confer the honor.
Featured speaker at the banquetF
will be James W. Parker, vice-presi-
dent and chief engineer of Detroit
Edison, who will speak on some topic
of engineering interest. A member
of most of the professional engineer-
ing societies, Parker is very promi-
nent in the field of engineering.
The installation of new officers
will complete the festivity for the
evening. Norman Taylor, '42E, will
remain in the president's chair,
while other officers-elect will be
Alexander Pentland, '42E, vice-presi-
dent; Marvin Zeskina, '43E, home
secretary; Edward Rutan, '43E, cor-
responding secretary; 'Charles Cole,
'43E, recording secretary, and John
Hammelef, '42, treasurer.

Fred Jenner Hodges and Prof. Isa'-

Slightly less than half of the pa-

Dr. J. Allen Scott; of, Ohio State
University, will speak on "Manson's

Jniversity Lecture sponsored by the
Department of Zoology.
Until last year, Dr. Scott, was a
representative of the field staff of
the Health Division of the Rockefeller
Foundation. From 1929 until 1937 he
studied Egyptian blood-flukes in that
country and from 1937 until 1940 he
investigated Manson's blood-flukes in

of the survey, 207 of whom were ad-

1939. During the period of the or-
ganized investigation, 188 of the pa-
tients were from Washtenaw County,
52 of that group having been added
in 1939.
An extremely detailed table on the
diagnosis of the neoplasms has been
published with th2 report. The
growths have been classified into 221
distinct types, 30 of which were dis-
covered and added to the list during
1939. Included in the data for each,
type are average patient age, average
duration after admission, types of
treatment, number and causes of
death, and sex of the patients in each
