'39E, former editor of the Technic,
Walton Rodger, '38E, former editor,
and M. R. Herman, '39E, former bus-
iness manager.

man of the board will be Prof. F. N.
Menefee of the engineering mechanics
department, while Prof. .Richard
Schneidewind of the chemical en-
gineering department will be the new,
member of the board.
Other members who will continue
their work on the Technic advisory
board are Prof. R. D. Brackett of the

lege, and Prof. M. B. Stout of the

Majority Of University Students
Don't Attend Church, Poll Shows

A majority of students in the Uni-
versity of Michigan either never at-
tend church or else do so very rarely,
the results of a poll conducted by the
Bureau of Student Opinion released
yesterday show.
Of the 52.4 per cent in the "rarely
and never" class on the basis of the
poll, 26.6 per cent rarely go and'
25.8 never go to church.22.7 per centJ
of the student body attend church
weekly. 19.5 per cent go to worship
God while 15.3 per cent go to hear the
Among the reasons for not going
to church "feeling no need for it"
led with 23.6 per cent, 22.7 sleep
Sunday morning while 14 per cent
study. A 64 per cent majority also
thought that they need not attend
church regularly while 34 per cent
felt they should.
Slight Difference
There is only a slight difference
between the trends shown by men and
women students according to the fig-
ures compiled by the poll. Five per
cent more women attend church
weekly while 6 per cent more feel
they ought to go more often; and
nine per cent more go to worship God.
.Women further evidenced a greater
tendency to sleep and study on Sun-;
day mornings.
Twenty-two per cent of the men1
Co-op Council
To Interview
For Next Year
Students To Be Selected
For New Membership
On Financial Need
The Intercooperative Council will
interview prospective members of
men's cooperative houses for next year
at 7:30 p.m. today in room 304 of
the Union.
Considerations will be made accord-
ing to the needs of each student in
acceptance for membership. If he
wishes, he may choose to take either
room or board at one of the houses
instead of both room and board.
A certain amount of work will be
required of each member of a co-op.
The amount of money necessary
ranges from $2.00 to $5.50 per week,
according to the house.
Each member is given an equal
opportunity to share in house man-
agement, with one vote on all ques-'
tions of policy which might arise.
The Intercooperative Council is the
central agency of all the campus co-
operatives, interviewing and allocat-
ing members to the various houses
according to need.
All women interested in living in
one of the three women's cooperative
houses next year are invited to the
personnel and interview meeting at
7:30 p.m. today at the Muriel Lester
Cooperative, 909 East University.
The cooperative houses are operat-
ed for women students with limited
funds. Board and room are obtainable
at rates ranging from $2.00 to $5.50,
according to the house. All work of
upkeep is done by student members
and is shared equally.

Get Scholarships
Univcrsity Scholarships in the Pro-

o Edward Rudd '42D. and Anthony
W. Markovich, '42D.
Eased on scholarsh ip, characteri ad
eneral suitability to be the recipient

equivalent to the regular semester
fees for an entire year. Tle annual
choices are made on the recommenda-
tion of the faculty of the school in

nounced, are given every year in all

tration, law and medicine.

students in the College of Literature,
Science and the Arts attend weekly
as compared with 19 per cent of the
engineers. However, 42 per cent of
the slide rule masterers feel they
ought to go as against only 26 per cent
of the literary students. Seven per
cent more engineers sleep on Sunday
mornings than literary men.
Most Unusual Fact
The most unusual fact brought out
by the survey was that although 29
per cent of the graduate students are
church-goers, 40 per cent of them
don't feel the need of going. Break-
ing the results down to religious sects
showed that Catholic students were byi
far the most consistent attenders at
A greater percentage of freshmen
go to church weekly than from any
other class. Seniors go the least.
Questioning on the basis of residence
pointed out that 23 per cent of room-
ing house residents worship weekly
while dormitory residents were sec-
ond with 21 per cent.
Fraternity and sorority members
exhibit smaller attendance records
with women leading the men by five
per cent. Strangely, nevertheless, 33
per cent of the students in rooming
houses never attend.

Prof. Sawyer
Receives Naval
Reserve Post
Prof. Ralph A. Sawyer, professor
of physics in the engineering school,
received an appointment Monday as
Lieutenant Commander in the Naval
Professor Sawyer, one of the na-
tion's outstanding physicists, was
sworn in at the North Hall head-
quarters of the Naval ROTC by Cap-
tain Lyal A. Davidson, U.S.N., in a
brief ceremony Monday.
Professor Sawyer served as Ensign
in the Naval Reserve during the last
war. He was on duty at an optical
company concerned with the manu-
facture of apparatus important to the
war effort.
Professor Sawyer, who is at the
present time engaged in work in
spectro-chemical analysis for the
Navy will probably not be called to
active duty.

Fate-Not Bismarck-Was Cause
Of Hood Disaster, Bragg Says






to relax and have fun hef ore that stren-1
uous ordeal. Relax in a good-looking
slack suit; play in one of or play suits;
swim in one of our super duper bathin
suits;or be a spectator in agood-looking
cotton dress.

Fate, and not the shelling of the
Nazi battleship Bismarck, herself now
sunk by British seagoing bloodhounds,
was responsible for the sinking of the
battle cruiser Hood, pride of the Brit-
ish fleet, in the engagement off the
coast of Greenland over the week-
end, according to Prof. E. M. Bragg
of the naval architecture department.
"The powder magazines on big bat-
tleships are usually so well protected,"
Professor Bragg explained, "that it
is very unlikely that a German shell
penetrated to one of them. It is more
probable that some sort of accident
or slilP aboard the Hood herself re-
sulted in her explosion and sinking."
Number Of Things
There are a number of things which
could cause such an explosion, he sug-
gested. The gun turrets are connected
directly to the ammunition supply by
ammunition hoists, which must of
necessity be kept open at times in
order to load the gun. A spark might
have found its way down one of these
hoists and touched off some of the
powder below.
"A 'flare-back' is also a remote pos-
sibility," he continued, "even though
the chances of such a thing are slight'
on modern vessels. It sometimes hap-

pens, however, that after the shell has
been fired, when the breech is opened
flame shoots out of the opened breech.
Again, with an ammunition hoist
nearby it would not be hard for this
flame or sparks of it to reach the
powder below."
Discounts Direct Hit
The possibilities of adirect hit on
the powder magazine by the German
raider Professor Bragg discounted be-
cause "the powder magazines are built
below the water-line of the ship and
well-armored besides. It would be
well-nigh-impossible for a shell to
get through the water and still pierce
this heavy armor plate."
The only other possibility would be
for the shell to explode inside the
gun turret; and ignite the magazine
via the hoist. The - gun turrets are
well armored too, however, a fifteerl-
inch turret being protected by per-
haps fifteen inches of armor plate;
and the likelihood of a Nazi shell
piercing this armor to blow up the
Hood is slight.
"I think it was just one of those
things," Professor Bragg concluded.
"It was a one-in-a-thousand occur-
rence, one of those things for which
there is no defense."
