has been publishing, presenting news-
Worthy items from President Ruth-
vens annual report for 1939-40 to the

The dental school annually re-
ceives more requests for dental prac-
titioners than can be supplied from
each year's graduating class, ac-
cording to Dean Russell W. Bunting.
He noted that the incoming fresh-
man class shows a gratifying increase
in number, but asserted that "there
is room for and need of even greater
riumbers of dental students and
Dean Bunting pointed out that
the small enrollment which exists
in this and many other dental schools
in the country is due to the high
cost of dental education and a lack
of appreciation of the opportunities
in public health service which den-
tistry offers. He predicted that the
"public demand for dental service
will in the near future stimulate in-
terest in dentistry as a life work and
will greatly increase the enrollment
in dental schools." He said that
plans were being made to bring the
opportunities open to prospective
dentists to the attention of high
school and junior college students.
Approximately half of the reg-
istered physicians and surgeons in
Michigan enrolled for courses in
postgraduate medicine, according
to the report of Dr. James D. Bruce,

Professor Mickle
To Tour Country
An extensive trip through the
southern and eastern sections of the
country, combining business and
pleasure is planned by Prof. Frank
A. Mickle of the engineering school
as a program for his sabbatical leave
next semester.
Among his objectives are visits to
numerous engineering colleges in
those sections of the country, at
which time he will inspect the design
f laboratory equipment and study
the teching methods employed by
the various schools.
While in the South Professor Mick-
le intends to inspect 15 cotton com-
presses, machines used to decrease the
size of a bale by one quarter, so as to
reduce storage and freight charges.
Having assisted in designing the ma-
chines, Professor Mickle is particular-
ly interested in seeing them in opera-
Other Southern industries, particu-
larly in the Birmingham, Ala., area
will be inspected as well as some in
the New England industrial area,
Professor Mickle said.
On the pleasure side of the trip,
Professor Mickle said the first stop
would probably be for the Mardi Gras
festival in New Orleans, followed by
a short jaunt across the border into
According to present plans, Profes-
sor'Mickle will leave Ann Arbor Feb-
ruary 12, to return the first of June.

Can two really live as cheaply as
If you give that question to five
young married couples on campus,
they'l answer in the affirmative.
In fact they'll prooamy insist that
married life is still more economical
than living single.
Atd here is their formula:
Take five married couples, rent one
large rooming house, divide all work
evenly in accordance with the prin-
ciples of consumer cooperation, and
the result-a successful mixture of
married life and college.
Since Jan. 1, these young married
people have been eating, sleeping and
studying under one roof in what they
believe to be the onlyimarried cou-
ples', cooperative house in the United
Started By Karlstrom
If it were not for the efforts of
Karl Karlstrom, '43SM, under whose
guidance plans for the project were
made, all of these men and women
would still be single and waiting for
graduation before wedding bells. All
of the couples have been married af-
ter Sept. 8, and in each case the
promise of inexpensive living in the
house was the motivating force be-
hind the undergraduate marriage.
'Two of the couples were :Harried

For the outstanding attraction: of
the house is the low expenses-which
come to eight dollars per couple per
week for room and board. And this
still leaves a tidy surplus to be spent
on improvements after operating ex-
penses, depreciation allowances, debt
disbursement, and so forth have been'
Termed A Success
But most important, the couples
agree, is the fact that they are mak-
ing a successful go of student mar-
ried life.
Some of the inhabitants of the
house have not yet entered the Uni-
versity, but intend to in two weeks
when second semester begins. Karl-

These students started the ball roll-
ing with an initial investment of $450,
$65 of which went into the first in-
stallment of a seven-months' lease'
on the house, which is located on
Oakland Street. With the remainder
of the money, the couples scouted
the warehouses of Ann Arbor and
Detroit for suitable furniture, new
and used. Some of the money was
borrowed. The rest of it cane from
the pockets of the members.
