Naval Reserve Applications: Presi-
dent Ruthven has been requested byI
Lieutenant Commander E. S. Petty-
john, of the Michigan State Head-
quarters for the Selective Service, to
inform students that the number of
applications received for enrollment
in the Naval Reserve for training in
the Supply Corps has exceeded the
number of placements available and
that, therefore, this opportunity is
no longer available. Further, it was
stated that, the Reserve Midshipman
Training program is filling at a very
rapid rate and all interested should
forward their applications as quickly
as possible.
Frank E. Robbins,
Assistant to the President
Members of the Faculty and Staff:
Your attention is called to the fo.-
lowing Resolution adopted by the Re-
gents on May 23, 1941:
Resolved, That it be the policy of
the University of Michigan with re-
gard to: (1) A member of the staff
on indeterminate tenure who enters
the Federal Service in the present
emergency that such member shall
apply for a leave of absence in ac-
cordance with the provisions of the
Bylaws of the Board of Regents. (2)
A member of the faculty or other em-
ployee not on indeterminate tenure
who is called into the service of the
Federal Government during the pres-

ent emergency shall be deemed to
be on leave of absence without salary
for a period not longer than the end
of the present term of appointment.
Upon release from Government serv-
ice the University will if possible re-
employ such person at the beginning
of a semester or academic year as
may be practicable and in a position
as nearly comparable as possible with
the former position. Whatever tenta-
tive understanding may be reached
by a departmental Chairman with a
member of the staff should be put
in writing with copies filed with the
appropriate University officers.
Chairman of departments are ad-
vised to weigh carefully the necessity
of filling positions made vacant by
the national emergency and to at-
tempt to make provisions for the re-
turn of members of the staff.
To Students Graduating at Com-
mencement, June 21, 1941: The bur-
den of mailing diplomas to mem-
bers of the graduating class who do
not personally call for their diplomas
has grown until in 1940 it cost the
University over $400 to perform this
service. The rule has been laid down,
as a result, that diplomas not called
for at, the Sports Building immedi-
ately after the Commencement Ex-
ercises or at the University Business
Office within three business days
after Commencement will be mailed
C.O.D. The mailing cost will be ap-
proximately 30c for the larger sized
rolled diplomas and 45c for the book
Will each graduate, therefore, be
certain that the Diploma' Clerk has
his correct mailing address to insure
delivery by mail. The U.S. Mail
Service will, of course, return all
diplomas which cannot be delivered.
Because of adverse conditions abroad,
foreign students should leave ad-
dresses in the United States, if pos-
sible, to which diplomas may be

For the last three years the Ann
Arbor Refugee Committee under the
chairman ship of Prof. Arthur Du~n-
ham of the Institute of Public and
Social Administration has been aid-
ing refugees in coming to Ann Arbor
and permanently settling here.
Last year the committee handled
the problems of more than 75 refu-
gees. It also serves as a clearing
house for information and advice for
people whose relatives are still in
war-torn Europe.
There are a total of more than 40
or 50 refugees in Ann Arbor. The com-
mittee has enabled many of them
to find jobs. It has also helped ref-
ugees secure instruction in English
and become a part of the American
Sponsors Programs
Social programs for the refugees
are frequently sponsored by mem-I
bers of the committee. One of the
problems before the committee is to
find American citizens who are willing
to entertain the refugees and find
places for them for the summer. Last
summer one family turned over their.
home to a refugee family while
another Ann Arbor resident gave a
group a vacation at their summer
During the present school year
members of the committee have col-
lected about $1,000 for their refugee
work. Affidavits have been secured
for 10 refugees from Poland, Ger-
many, Belgium, Switzerland and
France. At present, however, there
is a great need for affidavit signers.
A typical case faced by the com-

mittee is that of a young Polish boy,
18 years old. His mother and father
killed by a bomb in Warsaw, he
was forced to flee to Rome where
he lived with &n aunt.
The aunt is coming to the United
States soon and with another affi-
davit the young Pole will be able
to come with her.
