tion courses will be given by the
mechanical engineering department,
the "refresher" in materials by the
mechanical and chemical engineer-
ing departments together and the
tool engineering course by the metal
processing department. Other Uni
versity technical staffs will be called
in to aid in instruction at a later date.
Although many of the ,individuals
completing this training will receive
positions in war industries, neither
the Education Office nor the Uni-
versity will guarantee the finding of
them. "Both gr6ups, ho'wever," Dean
Crawford said, "will make every en-
deavor to find satisfactory places."
While the opening date for the
starting of these courses has not been
definitely set, it is believed that they
will be underway about the middle of
January. Persons interested should

For six ,years Mr. R has had a
steady job, laboring in a factory on
a schedule that takes all his meager
reserve of strength. It is rather dis-
-couraging, therefore, when his wages
barely stretch to take care of his
large family of seven growing child-
ren. When unexpected illness and ex-
pense upsets just can't be handled,
the Bureau has had to stand ready
to help materially with clothing, fuel,
and milk for the children, who are
John, the oldest boy, now 14, has
been neglected by his worried father;
in fact, Mr. R sometimes resents
John's dependence on him as one
more burden which he feels inad-
equate to carry. John for a time be-
gan to steal the sweets and toys
which his father had refused to buy
him, and the Bureau has tried to
help the boy secure his privileges
by work of his own.
Relief in this family has had a
two-fold purpose: first, to supply
the needs which Mr. R's wages can-
not always meet, thereby preventing
him from getting too discouraged
and giving up entirely, as he has
often wanted to do; and second, to
substitute constructive places for the
tendencies already shown by John.

University's Financial Report
Reveals Decrease In State Aid

A. Sink, president, announced yes-
Miss Peebles will sing with the
Thoral Union of 300 voices and with
he University Symphony Orchestra
of 80 players under the baton of Thor
Johnson, 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec.
18 in Hill Auidtorium. Other soloists

tival programs.

University organist.
The "Messiah" performance, ac-
cording to Dr. Sink, constitutes the
Society's Christmas contribution to
music lovers of Ann Arbor and its
environs. No admission charge will
be made, but to avoid undue conges-
tion and confusion, admission will b£

the offices of the society in Burton
Tower. Requests, accompanied by
self-addressed, stamped envelopes

Christmas Flowers
Exhibit Being Held
An exhibition of Christmas flowers
is being shown this week and next at
the Nielsen Greenhouse on Maiden
Lane to give students, members of
the faculty and townspeople an op-
portunity to see many of the blooms
not grown regularly during the win-
ter months.
The largest single exhibit housed
under the 100,000 square feet of glass
at the greenhouse consists of more
than 10,000 poinsettia blooms. Other
flowers included in the showing are
gardenias, carnations, violets and
roses. Altogether more than 40,000
plants are being shown.
Students who wish to see the dis-
play are urged to do so as soon as
possible because shipment of plants
to all parts of the country is ex-
pected to begin about Dec. 15.

While University enrollment was
increasing by approximately one-
third during the decade beginning
with the school year 1929-30, State
contributions to the University for
operating expenses dropped nearly
six percent. the newly issued Finan-
cial Report for 1939-40 indicates.
Enrollments of students in courses
for credit, including extension work,
jumped approximately from 15,000
to 20,000 during the ten-year period,
and State appropriations were de-
creased by more than $251,000.
At the same time, State contribu-
ions remained substantially the same
percent of the total spent by the
University on operating expenses.
This indicates that last year's op-
erating expenditure per student, pro-
vided by the state, was well below
the 1929-30 figure.
Although the total operations bud-
get of the University was more than
$7,926,000 (exclusive of approximate-
ly $2,000,000 in hospital receipts), it
2annot be compared accurately with
,he 1929-30 budget of approximately
$6,500,000. The 1929-30 figure omit-
ted income from various trust funds
and endowments which would have
brought it to a level practically the
same as last year's.
The Report further indicates that
during the year 1939-40 the total
assets of the University increased by
nearly $3,000,000, net. A large part

To Hold Dinner
Titiev Will Give Address
At Society's Initiation
Phi Kappa Phi, senior scholastic
honorary society. will hold its semi-
innual initiation banquet at 6:15
p.m. tomorrow in the League.
The main address of the evening

their culture and to show how their
society has managed to settle their
disputes without war.
Professor Titiev, who has been at
the University since 1935, is a well
known authority on the Hopi In-
dians, having written articles on such
diverse parts of their culture as their
racing customs, method of baking
sweet corn, cross-cousin marriage
problems and their use of kinship
terms in their ritual.
A graduate of Harvard University.
Professor Titiev has been active in
University Museums work and is a
member of the American Anthropol-
ogy Association, the American Asso-
ciation for the Advancement of Sci-
ence, the American Oriental Society
and the Michigan Academy.
