Principals And Freshmen
To Confer At Rackhlam
Building On Thursday
Plans are now complete for the
14th annual Principal-Freshman
Conference, which is to be held
Thursday at the Rackham Building
and the League, it was announced
byt the Registrar's Office today.
Ninety-seven high schools from
four states and seven junior colleges
from the state of Michigan will send
175 delegates to the conference.
Twelve representatives from other
colleges in Michigan have also been
invited to attend.
Approximately 675 freshmen will
be interviewed by their former high
school principals during the course
of the morning on the second floor
of the Rackham Building. Following
this, a luncheon will be held in the
League ballroom for the secondary
school representatives and members
of the University faculty who have
come into contact with any of the
freshmen this semester.
The Principal-Freshman Confer-
ence has a three-fold purpose: 1)
To benefit the students of the Uni-
versity who may be having difficulty
with academic work; 2) To help the
secondary schools so that they may
better prepare students who will
later enroll at the University; and
3) to aid the University itself in dis-
covering how better to orient incom-
ing students. '
Concluding the day's activities will
be a special program at the League,
in which high school teachers, Uni-
versity faculty members and some
University students will participate.
The program will be in the form of
a panel discussion, "Pre-College

The "link trainer" consists of a
small machine resembling an air-
plane mounted on a pedestal which
reacts just like a real plane to its
controls. The training is being given
at the request of the National Re-
search Council which is desirous of
learing how useful it is in learning
actual contact flying.
A grant of $5,500, given to Prof.
Edward B. Greene of the psychology
department by the National Research
Council to make various studies with
students working on the "link train-
er" was accepted yesterday by the
Board of Regents.

That was the general outcome of
an interview with a most unusual
person--named Rigor Mortis-in the
office of Congress, Independent
Men's Association, yesterday.
Mortis, a ghoul by profession, is
working with William Rockwell, '41,
president of Congress, and Dick Coe,
'42E, social chairman, on plans for
the Congressional Fling, Congress'
annual dance, December 6, at whichl

bloodthirsty freshmen are expected
to meet at 7:30 p.m. today in the
Natural Science Auditorium to elect
a class captain and make plans for
"Black Friday," annual date of war-
fare between the underclassmen.
At 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the same
place a meeting will be held by
members of the Class of '43 devoted
to the same purpose.
Traditionally "Black Friday" , is
"pot day." Up until that evening,
which will be Nov. 22 this year, the
freshmen are supposed to wear pots
but are allowed to burn them if vic-
torious in the interclass battle. If
the sophomores win, however, the
neophytes are required to keep wear-
ing "dinks" until the end of the first

will be no class games on the day
following "Black Friday." In past
years members of both classes met
on "The Saturday" for a greased
flagpole contest, "cane spree," pil-
'ow fight and the like.
Robert Samuels, '42, and Jack Sto-
ver, '42, will chair the freshman aWgl
