State Educators
Will Interview
675 Freshmen
Luncheon, Program Also
Planned For Principals,
Teachers At Meeting
Over 150 principals and teachers,,
representatives of 95 high schools in
four states, will assemble for the
14th annual Principal-Freshman
Conference Nov. 14 in the Rackham
Building and the League.
Approximately 675 University
freshmen will be interviewed by their
former high school principals
throughout the entire morning of
Nov. 14, on the second floor of the
Rackham Building. Following this,
a. luncheon will be held at the League
ballroom for the secondary school
representatives and members of the
University faculty who have come
into contact with the freshmen this
Twelve representatives from other
colleges in Michigan have been in-
vited to attend the conference. Seven
deans from junior colleges in Mich-
igan have also been invited to attend,

students from those schools.
The purpose of the Principal-
Freshman Conference is three-fold:
1) to benefit the students of the
University who may be having diffi-
culties with their academic work;
2) to benefit the secondary schools
so that they may better prepare stu-
dents who will later enroll at the
University; and 3) to aid the Uni-
versity itself in discovering how bet-
ter to orient incoming students.
After the luncheon there will be
a program at the League, in which
the high school teachers, members
of the University faculty( and Uni-
versity students will participate. The
program will be in the form of a
panel discussion entitled, "Pre-Col-
lege Guidance."

Mary Roberts Rinehart in writing
the mystery, probably provided the
theatrical effects added when Miss
Rinehart's novel "The Circular Stair-

cording to Prof. William P. Hal-

Course Open
For Enrolling
Students planning to enroll for
flight training in the Civil Aeronau-
tics Authority courses next semester
are asked to report to the Aeronau-
tical Engineering office sometime
this week to make arrangements for
work on the "link trainer."
A machine looking very much like
a small airplane on a pedestal, the
"Link Trainer" has been found help-
ful for beginning students and the
attempt is being made now to deter-
mine how effective it is in actual
contact flying.
Ten hours of work on this machine
will be given to all students who will
be in the CAA next February who
pass their medical examinations, ap-
proximately one hour of which will
be required each week.
The work to discover exactly how
effective the link trainer is was re-
quested last week by the National
Research Council, according to Prof..
