To Enter Classes
The newly formed School of Public
Health opens its doors for the first
time this week.
Dean Henry F. Vaughn reported
an expected enrollment of about 100
students for the school begun to meet
the great demand for public health
administrators and nurses-a de-
mand that has become acute because
of the new problems created by the
defense effort.
About a half-million dollars will be
spent on the construction of a build-
ing to house the new public health
school. Meanwhile classes and labor-
atory Work will be accommodated in
the West'Medical Building, the new
Kellogg Dental Institute, Waterman
-Gymnasium and East* Hospital.
Registered Nurses Enroll
Registered nurses are eligible to
enter the year and a half course lead-
ing to, a certificate in Public Health
Nursing or to follow a four year pro-
gram for the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Public Health Nursing.
Graduate degrees are available pri-
marily for those planning to enter
the field professionally. Graduation
from a medical, dental, engineering
or nursing school is required but may
be waived in very exceptional cases
for persons with unusual experience
in the public health field.'
Practical experience as well as ac-
ademic work is necessary to earn the
degree of Master of Public Health
with 48 required credit hours includ-
ing 12 credit hours of field work.
Thirteen types of training curric-
ala including the study of public
health administration, nursing, engi-
neering, laboratory and epidemiology
lead to the masters degree.
Other Courses Offered
Other' courses involve. industrial
health studies in cooperation with
large industries in ,Detroit, public
health statistics, school health pro-
grams, public health education, den-
tistry, venereal disease control, pub-
lic health nutrition, and health coun-
cils and voluntary health agencies.,
Special studies will be made of the
virus diseases such as infantile par-
alysis, and influenza-like infections
as well as the study of tropical dis-
eases. Temporarily the old East Hos-
pital will be at the disposal of these
The new public health school
building will be U shaped yrjith the

Signal Corps, Engineers, Ordnance
and Medical Corps. All except Medi-
cal Corps include one hour of drill
per week which exempts freshmen
from the requirement in physical ed-
Lieut. Col. Francis M. Brannan,
Professor of Military Science and
Tactics, will command the corps, re-
placing Lieut. Col. Basil D. Edwards
who has been transferred to the As-
sistant Secretary of War's office.
One new officer, Lieut. Col. G. B.
Egger, Infantry, has joined the staff
this year. Col Egger has attended the
Infantry School and the Battalion
Commanders and Staff Officers
School at Ft. Benning and the Com-
mand and General Staff School at
Ft. Leavenworth. He has served as
executive officer of the 7th Infantry
and as battalion commander in the
10th Infantry.
The regiment of cadets will remain
at the same size with 1100 basic and
215 advanced students enrolled.
In addition to the regular work
in military science the corps will
again sponsor the rifle team which
fires in intercollegiate competition
and the drum and bugle corps which
furnishes music for the parades and
ceremonies of the regiment.

Seven-Man Senior Board
To Strengthen Power;
Before swinging into its routine ad-
ministrativek and disciplinarian work
this semester, the Men's Judiciary'
Council will meet to amend its limit-
ed constitution to broaden and ,to
strengthen its powers in judicial mat-
ters, President William G. Slocum
said yesterday.
A seven-man board composed of
seniors representing varied camlus
interests, the Judiciary Council was
formed four years ago as the out-
growth of the Men's Council, which
had become a mere advisory board.
Besides Slocum, the six members
are Robert ,Getts, secretary, Gordon
Andrew, Richard Scherling, Carl
Rohrbach, Robert Samuels and Ray
All student elections save those in
the engineering school come under
the jurisdiction of the Council. This
includes elections to class dance com-,
mittees, senior election, Union vice-
presidencies, boards in control of ath-
letics and putlications and Congress.
The Council has authority to reg-!
ulate initiations and conduct of all
campus honor societies and can pass
recommendations on other organ-
izations for the Board of Student
Their disciplinary power is actual-
ly a recommendation of action to
Dean of Students Joseph Bursley.
Special committees already ap-
pointed this year include constitu-
tional revision with Andrews as chair-
man; Scherling in charge of dance
committee elections and Rohrach in
charge of continuance and revival
of campus traditions such as fresh-
man pots, class games and the al-
ready defunct Black Friday.
The members are chosen by the
retiring leaders of the Daily, Union,
Congress, Interfraternity Council,
Judiciary Council and Dean Bursley.

U' Students
Textbooks Will Be Loaned
To All Recommended
By Deans, Advisors
"Textbook blues" for the student
who is unable to get money to pur-
chase his own books will be non-
existent this semester due to the ex-
panding services of the Textbook
Lending Library, which will be es-
tablished in the Angell Hall Study
Hall under the auspices of the Uni-
versity Library.
Only qualification of the needy stu-
dent is that he be recommended by
one of the Deans or by an Academic
Counselor of hisCollege. All classes
in all colleges on campus may take
advantage of the service.
No Deposit Required
Books will be issued to the stu-
dents as applied for, no deposit be-
ing necessary. The privilege of re-
newing the loan for another semester
will depend on the care given books
used in previous semesters.
Established in May, 1937, the li-
brary is the result of a student idea,
first instigated by student gifts of old
textbooks. In the first donation a
large number of obsolete books were
turned in, but these were sold to co-
operating bookstores and the pro-
ceeds turned to current needs.
Since then the facilities of the li-
brary have been expended through
further book donations as well as a
number of cash donations from re-
sponsive alumni. At the present time
the library also boasts an endowment
established by Michigan alumni.
Recommendation Necessary
It is urged that appications for
text loans be turned in early, as stu-
dents requesting books which are not
now available will have to wait until
these books can be purchased with
the funds now on hand.

"Unless we have an unusual num-
ber of new men," he lamented, "the

in the past. I should like to see all

'trument, regardless of their ability
,r experience, report for an audition
this week."

All students wishing to play in
the Marching Band this fall, re-
gardless of ability or experience,
should report to Morris Hall some-
time this week at the hours 8:30-
12 a.m. and.1-6 p.m.
A smoker for the discussion of
plans for the year will be held at
7 pm. Thursday at the Union. All
.:xception of the Michigan State op-
'ner, will make two trips during the
gar, one to Eevanston for the North-
lestern game, and probably a second
ithe Columbia game in New York
i 2ty.
Nor does the band's season end
with the end of the football season.
At that time the band is broken up
into the Regimental Band and the
Concert Band, both of which then
have an active season playing at con-
certs, athletic events and on out-of-
town tours.
Uniforms Furnished
"The question of a uniform need
not worry the prospective band man,"
Professor Revelli pointed out. "The
University furnishes a complete uni-
form to each band member, at no
cost to that member."
In addition to being considered one
of the finest playing bands in the
country, the Marching Band also pre-
sents the outstanding formations at
each game which have made it de-
serving of the "All-American" rating
given it by the Associated Press for
the past few years.

Responsible for the band's drill this
year will be Lt. John A. Lohla of the
'military science department, who

Prospective freshmen band mem-
bers are reminded that the Marching
Band is the one activity in which they
may participate during their first
semester on campus, the only condi-
tion being that they elect band for
credit, or enroll for the basic course
in military science.
College of Literature, Science and the
Arts should be recommended by an
Academic Counselor, 108 Mason Hall,

Crea tes New
Choral Group
A new course for credit in choral
clinging, open to students from all
colleges of the University, will be of-
feted this year by the School of
Known as the University Choir, the
organization will be under the direc-
tion of Prof. Hardin A. Van Deursen
of the music school. The Choir will
be a separate group from the Choral
Union, and will coordinate with the
University Bands and the University
Symphony Orchestra.
This year. only music students may
receive credit for participation in the
choir, Dr. Earl V. Moore, director of
the School of Music, said, but it is
very likely that the organization will
be placed on the list of credit courses
in other campus units in the future.
Rehearsals will be held at 11 a.m.

Hall throughout the year, Dr. Moore
The type of music to be sung by the
University Choir will differ from that
used by the Men's Glee Club, the
Women's Glee Club or the Choral
Union, in that a capell music will
be stressed throughout. Unaccom-
panied music of all periods will be
studied, Professor Van Deursen de-
Speech Clinic
Opens Service
To All Enrnts
Human Adjustment Unit
Emphasizes Instruction
In Defect Correction
Part of the speech science division
of the speech department, the Uni-
versity Speech Clinic was set up in
1936 as the first unit in the Insti-
tute of Human Adjustment.
At present, the clinic sees approxi-
mately six-thousand individuals each
year, including three thousand odd
freshmen and transfers during regis-
tration week.
Directed by Dr. H. Harlan Bloomer,
the clinic has a three-fold purpose
of teacher-training, research and
speech science. However the train-
ing phase has become most import-
ant, with only thirteen workers on
its staff. Speech classes held in the
clinic's Huron Street building have
full use of case histories and labora-
tory equipment.
Freshman examination is one of
the clinic's most valuable services to
the University. Last year's survey of
the entering class showed eighty-six
students with poor hearing and 176
with speech defects. Any freshman
requiring aid is given another more,
thorough series of tests and then in-
dividual treatments.
Although accents cannot be truly
classed as speech defects, the clinic
has worked with the International
Center in aiding foreign students.
Staff linguists have been of great as-
sistance in orienting men and women
from both hemispheres.
The clinic performs its actual cor-
rective work with its own equipment
and the cooperation of the dental
school's Department of Oral Surgery.

Although Delta Sigma Rho is open l
only to juniors and seniors who have
represented the University in a foren-!
sic contest, three other organizations
are offered to any eligible student
taking speech. Alpha Nu sponsors
debates and speeches for men stu-
dents in the department while Athena
and Zeta Phi Eta give women the
same opportunity.
Under Director Arthur G. Secord,
the Men's Varsity Debate Squad
schedules forensic contests withuni-
versities and colleges throughout the
entire country. Last yeahtogether
with the Women's Varsity Debate
-quad it participated in radio debates
with the Kent College of Law in Chi-
-ago. Besides following this schedule,
the women's squad takes part in the
big Ten Women's Discussion tCor%-
ference to be held at Purdue Univer-
sity in December.
In the field of oratory, the Uni-
versity offers one of the highest
honors in intercollegiate speaking --
representation at the Northern Ora-
torical League's annual May contest.
Founded by Professor Trueblood, the
League is composed of five other Big
clared, including motets of such six-
teenth century Latin church choral
writers as Sweelinck, Hassler, di Las-
so, Vittoria and Palestrina, and mad-
rigals by Philips, Festa, Farnaby,
Gavert and Morley.
The grandeur of Russian church
music will be found in the composi-
tions of Tschaikowsky, Kopylow,
Kastalsky, and Pantchenko. Also on
the list to be sung are folk-tune and
spiritual arrangements by Williams,
Warrell, Jackson and Cain, as well
as some modern creations of Willan,
Thompson, Kodaly, Wood and Mc-

New Facilities
Are Prepared,
Physics' Department Uses
Two Buildings Here
Engineers- and physicists-to-be at
the University need shed no tears
about inadequate facilities in the
physics department, as two buildings
house enough laboratories and equip-
ment to take-care of even the most
specialized research work.
Perhaps most awe-inspiring to the
new student will be the name "cyclo-
tron," and the apparatus for which
it stands. Through the use of ac-
celerating magnetic fields, this amaz-
ing "atom smasher" sends volt ions
at a target with a speed equal to that
produced by a potential of about
seven million volts.
Across-the-hall sister to the cyclo-

dall Laboratory, is the high voltage
laboratory, where similar experiments
are conducted by means of electric
