Michigan Engineering Unit
To Supervise Extension
Due to its unquestionable success
when first inaugurated last year, a
program of Post-Graduate Engineer-
ing Study, a series of extension
courses offering instruction in vital
engineering topics, will be continued
and extended this year.
Originally opened in Kalamazoo,
the course quickly spread to Battle
Creek and Saginaw, a total of over
500 engineers in the three cities tak-

Of Training Program
Freshman middies, 120 strong, will
join the veterans of the Naval ROTC
unit's first year on campus to effect
a 100% increase in enrollment.
Captain Lyal A. Davidson will con-
tinue in command as Professor of
Naval Science and Tactics. Lieut.
Robie E. Palmer of last year's staff
will return and two new officers,
Lieut. V. E. Fitzgibbons and Lieut.
K. S. Shook, have been assigned to
the unit. Lieut. Comdr. Wells L.

post ds executive officer here to Rens-
selaer Polytechnic Institute where a

Training at the University is part
of a greatly expanded NROTC pro-
gram. The last school year saw the
number of units in the country in-
creased by over 100% and anothe
increase of nearly 50% will be mad
this year.
The four-year program in Naval
Science and Tactics consists of the
Basic and Advanced Courses of two
years each and Navigation. The Bas-
ic Course requires three hours work
per week, the Advanced Course four,
both including one hour drill.
The naval drill may be substituted
for the requirement in physical edu-
cation, but attendence at hygiene lec-
tures is required.
Libraries Give
Study Facilities
To All Students
Departmental Divisions
To Supplement Material
Kept In Main Building
Boasting a collection of 1,134,052
books, the University libraries pro-
vide inexhaustible supplies of refer-
ence material that are available for
the use of the student body.
The main center of the University
libraries is the General Library lo-
cated in the center of the campus.
"In this building are study halls, the
main reading room, the periodical
room, the medical reading room and
the graduate reading rooms.
The General Library is open from
7:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and the
periodical room and the main read-
ing room remain open from 2 p.m. to
9 p.m. on Sunday. Books may be
drawn from the stacks at the delivery
desk on the second floor for use in
the library or charged at the charg-
ing desk for home use. The privilege
of drawing books is extended to all
University students.
Most books may be retained for
home use for a peri'od of two weeks.
A fine of five cents a day is charged
for overdue books. The main library
building also contains two study halls
where required readings are reserved.
These books may be taken out for
one night only.
In the periodical room the current
numbers of more than 1600 different
periodicals are kept for student use.
Medical books and periodicals are
housed in the medical reading room.
The Library is maintained by an
annual appropriation of the Board
of Regents. The present General
Library building was erected in 1917-

19 at the cost of $615,000 on the site
of an older one.
Other library divisions are located
in Angell and Tappan halls, in the
chemistry, dental, engineering, sci-
ence, architecture, physics and mu-
seum buildings, in the School of Edu-
cation and in the University Hospi-
tal. In addition American historical
collections are on exhibit from 2 p.m.

Football Seats
To Be Resold
At Union Desh
If the ticket situation for this foot-
ball - game - before-the - first - day-of -
school stuff has put the kibosh on
you, there's a chance that the Unioni
football ticket resale desk can seat3
you with your girl, take care of your
parents or sell those extra ducats you
bought for the home-town girl who
isn't coming for obvious reasons. i
Students who wish to offer for sale{
other than student tickets should
take them to the Union Student Of-
fices between 3 and 5 p.m. Wednes-
day through Saturday at 9 a.m. I
A general sale of non-usable tickets
and a possible re-shuffling of seats
will be held at the Union travel desk
Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 1
Because of the confusion expected
at the pre-school game with Michi-
gan State, ticket-resale chairman
Bob Burstein, '43, has requested stu-
dents to make arrangements for re-
sale before Saturday morning.
All tickets will be sold and paid for
at regular box office prices. Approxi-
mately $2,200 worth of tickets were
exchanged or sold in four home
games last season.
If the resale works smoothly this
year Burstein plans to enlarge the
scope by advertising through alumni
organizations, thus insuring good
seats for Michigan graduates. r

Student Directory Is Handbook
Containing Varied Information

For the benefit of newcomers to
this campus, The Daily is printing 1
a few of the statements received
from past purchasers of the Student1
Directory, the 1941-42 issue of which
is to be released soon after the be-
ginning of the semester.
"Much easier than filling dut a'
little black book . . ."-Don Wan,
"I really learned my lesson last
year. You see, I made a mistake in
the telephone number I wrote on the
registration card, and would you be-
lieve it? I didn't have a date all
year . . ."-Muriel Maltbaum, '44.
"It's really a 'delightfully simple
method of finding out how and where
to contact one's professors for little
chats, . . ."-Bill Brain, Grad.
"How else would I know how to
address my Christmas cards?"-Jud-
ith Joy, '43.
Yes, all this is enclosed in that
most-used of the campus handbooks,
the Student Directory. For, besides
giving the name, class and Ann Ar'-
bor address and telephone number
of every student registered at the
University, the Directory offers all
the home address, for the second
sucessessive year.
In a section apart from that de-
voted to individual students are con-
tained the names, office numbers and
departments, home addresses and
telephone numbers of all faculty

members. Still another feature of
this book is the section giving offi-
cers and directors of the larger ex-
tra-curriculr activities of the Univer-
sity. Following this is a list of the
dormitories and sorority, fraternity
and cooperative houses, with their
Printed on smooth, strong paper,
the Student Directory has in the past
garnered the reputation of being the
only campus publication which re-
peatedly sells out at the very begin-
In view of the fact that each yeart
so many students are unable to pur-
chase Directories after they are sold
out, Gerald Hewitt, '42, editor of the
publication, urges everyone who wish-
es one of these handbooks to buy it
at the earliest possible moment.
