Chinese Art Student
Compliments Museum
Visiting the University Museum and
Institute of Fine Arts this week, Dr.
T. K. Cheng, recently appointed Di-
rector of the West China Union Uni-
versity Museum of Archaeology, com-
plimented the University Museum on
its 'young, aggressive' management.
Especially impressed with the mu-
seum's potsherd collectiontDr. Cheng,
who is to assume his post in Cheng-
tu, China, next month, declared that
it was 'unique in this country.' He
added that the Far Eastern Porcelain
collection now on exhibition at Alum-
ni Memorial Hall was equally interest-

personnel with interesting leisure pro-
grams, and it is not in the province
of any of the branches of the service
to do so.
Since there is no provision for these
activities, it must rest upon volun-
teer service and contribution. USO
stresses the fact that all funds raised
will be for the benefit of those in
national defense, no money will be
used for other purposes.
Any army or navy officer can tell
you that good morale is half the bat-
tle. By their campaign, the USO
hopes to keep morale in the service
at a high level.
Giving soldiers and sailors some-
thing to do, or someplace to go when
off duty is a vital part of maintaining
high morale, and this can only be
attained by raising adequate funds
to provide these facilities.
Road Testers
Don Overcoats
To Dodge Heat
"There are four men on this swel-
tering campus who could use a bowl
of boiling gruel after completing
their day's work.
This quartet, employed in the State
H-Iighway Laboratory's "cold room,"
is required to make tests of road
materials in temperatures ranging
down to 40 degrees below zero. Be-
fore attempting to discover the effect
of polar weather on concrete, the
tester must don a flying suit, of the
type used during the days of refriger-
ated open cockpits.
This dress consists mainly of sheep-
skin-lined canvas. Among its acces-
sories for correct summer wear are
included fleece-lined boots, wool mit-
tens and a tight-fitting wool-lined
1 flying helmet.
In addition to freezing concrete
blocks, the cold room is also used to
test the starting qualities of gasoline.
Its temperature can be regulated by
means of an ordinary ice-plant
ammonia system, and four inches of
cork separate it from the rest of the
East Engineering Building.
Unfortunately for the highway en-
gineering staff, the testing room is
much too cold for social purposes.
There is no great demand for assign-
ments there, since Ann Arbor's heat
is much more noticeable after a half
hour in cold storage.
Flying Corps Entrance
Requirements Changed
Flying cadet appointments have
been opened to a greater number of
candidates, following changes in re-
quirements demanded of men who
have not hadtwoayears' work at an
accepted college or university.
The War Department also an-
nounces the completion of the first
American college flying cadet unit
at Stanford University. This unit is
part of the 'Army's effort to organ-
ize units in cities and colleges.

Seniors: The firm which furnishes

To Students Graduating at Com-

den of mailing diplomas to mem-
