Schleider Attends Conference

'Second Home'

To Its 120 Students

The University's newest depart-
nent, the Naval Reserve Officers'
Training Corps, has in the short
period of six weeks transformed it-
self from a mere classroom to a
"second home" for its 120 students.
Located in the basement of North
Hall, the department's headquarters
are divided into 10 rooms, each of
which has been carefully designed to
create a "navy atmosphere." Two of
these, the library and the "Ward
Room", have been set aside for the
use of students.
The latter is well known in navy
circles . as the officers' mess and
aboard ship is devoted to the various
leisure activities of the vessels' com-
manders. In North Hall it has be-
come the students' "play headquar-
ters"-a place where they are per-
mitted to smoke, play games and en-
ter into any sort of "bull session"
they choose to.
Room Furnished Modernistically
The "Ward Room", which has on
one of its walls several examples of
old cutlasses, has recently been fur-
nished in a modernistic manner by
an undisclosed donor. Capt. Lyal A.
Davidson, commander of the local'
unit, revealed,"however, that the fur-
niture had been received through Re-
gent Harry G. Kipke.
Although the library is newly es-
tablished the NROTC has already
been able to gather several hundred
books on the sea and offers many
magazines such as "The Log", "Our

Navy" and "The Army and Navy
Journal", to- its students. The li-
brary is also headquarters for the
newest publication on the campus,
The Michigan Polaris, which is de-
voted to all NROTC activities.
In keeping with the "naval atmos-
phere" each of the rooms are given a
name similar to that which they
would be called at sea. The one,
classroom, for example, is known as
the "Chart House" and is equipped
with special tables for map work.
Novel Relics On Walls
The offices of Captain Davidson,
Lieut. Commander Wells L. Field and
Lieut. Robie E. Palmer are all kept
nautical with relics of the navy and
:he ships on which they were former-
ly stationed. On Commander Field's
c fice wall is a diploma admitting
aim to the group of those who had
-rcsd Athe equator and in Lieutenant
Palmer's office is another signifying
hat he had been in a submarine
nat was 200 feet under water. Both

are signed by "Old Man Neptune."
Rifles, a Browning light machine
gun, fixed and separate ammunition,
an aircraft bomb and a Lewis ma-
chine gun are all stored in the Arm-
ory, which will soon contain in addi-
tion a four-inch -m and a mine. The
torpedo belonging to the unit is
housed in the hall.
Expect Uniforms Soon
Other rooms include the depart-
anent office where tet oot are
loaned to the students: the bos'n's
Locker where the signal flags are
kept: a locker room. and a special
oreroom for umiforms. Blue uni-
forms for the students are expected
n the near future and white ones
will be kept there for use during the

room. A number of new officers are

Sophomore Class To old First
'Black Friday'_ eeting Today

As a prelude to the annual frosh-
soph "Black Friday" struggle on Nov.
22. members of the Class of '43 will
hcid their first organization meeting
at 7:30 p.m. today in the Natu'al
Science Auditorium.
At the meeting, which will be sim-
ilar to the one held last night by
the freshman class, a sophomore cap-
tain will be elected and battle plans
will be discussed. Jack Stover, '42,
assisted by Gerald Hewitt, '42, will
be in charge of the arrangements.
"Black Friday," according to Uni-
versity tradition, marks the end of
all class rivalry and consists usu-
ally of a large battle in which mem-
bers of both groups .of underclassmen
try to "de-pants" and "duck" one
another. In the past most of the
"duckings" have been in the Union
pool and the Huron River.
Last year laurels were awarded to

'he Class of '43 which roamed the
mpu, :n Iarge numhers looking
for sophomores. The latter group,
whih had ben or anized hurriedly
by a Committee of iive." proved
o be too small in numbers to put up
a wood fight.
Comments have been recived thus
far fron both classes predicting an
"unpre'ed:ntcd ory." Both the
neophytes and the cilege-one-year-
olds are intent on building up strong
organizations with the assistance of
the Union, Congress and the Inter-
fraternity Council and are expected
to come out in full force.
Warnings were given yesterday to
various class leaders by Stover and
Bob Samuels, '42, not to paint any
sort of signs on walks and buildings
and not to paste notices on either
public or private property. They al-
so asserted that the dorms were to
be considered "neutral ground" at
all times and that any fighting in
the East or West Quadrangle or in
Fletcher Hall would be prohibited.
