National Honorary Boy Scout
Society Does Many Services

Known to most students in the
University for "keep off the grass"
fame, Alpha Phi Omega, rational
honorary fraternity for former boy
scouts, performs many useful services
for both the university and the com-
Orfganized nationally as a service
group with 96 chapters, Alpha Phi
Omega chooses its members from
former boy scouts with the same pro-
cedures employed by the social frat-
ernities. The local chapter has 27
members, most of whom have been
eagle scouts or scout leaders.
Formerly installed in the national
organization only last year, the Mich-
igan Alpha Phi Omega has already
established a record for beneficial
services. Most familiar, of course, is
the society's, annual "keep off the
grass" campaign. This campaign was
first conducted to fulfill the require-

ments for admission to the national
Last spring Alpha Phi Omega co-
operated with the FBI in finger-
printing university students forthe
civilian files of that government
agency. More than 800 students were,
Althought not so highly publicized,
other services are performed by the
honorary fraternity. Magazines are
gathered for the patients in the
Health Service, and Alpha Phi Omega
members aid the authorities there
by delivering Iradios or books to stu-
derdts who request them. 4
The society also participates in the
Union guide service and last spring
took part in a tree-planting project
at the boy scout camp, Oamp New-
kirk, near Dexter.
Richard G. Schoel, Jr., '43E, is
president of Alpha Phi Omega. Other
officers are Robert E. Cope, '42E,
George D. Meier, '42F&C, and Alex
Yorman, '42F.

Training Program are attaining great
popularity according to Prof. R.'H.
Sherlock; of the civil engineering de-
partment, coordinator of the ESMDT
courses at the University.
Financed by the United States Of-
fice of Education and given by the

University Extension Service, the 29
training courses have a combined to-

course is about 200, that number hav-
ing afready signed up for a course in
Ordnance Inspection to be opened
Oct. -29 by Prof. O. W. Boston of the
metal processing department. It may
even be necessary to open a second
section of 200 when final enrollment
figures are known, Professor Sher-
lock stated.
Of the 29 courses offered, only one
is being presented in Ann Arbor, five
being held in Jackson, one in Wayne
and the remaining 22 in Detroit. One

anical drawing, are Prof. D. E. Ho-
bart and Prof. Maurice Eichelberger

ment, respectively.
Ohief difference between the men
enrolled now and those who took the
summer courses, Professor Sherlock
noted, is a more mature average age
and a higher average educational
background. Of 21 men enrolled in
one course, 19 had at least one college
Industrial men aidihg in the in-
struction of the courses are R. F.

neering who have completed at least
two years of college work, the courses,
will run for a period of eight weeks,

such programs, the present series will,
be followed by a second stkrting about,

Special training will be given to
city police, sheriff's offices,, indus-
trial night watchmen and volunteer
fire fighting units, according to the
council'sk Lansing headquarters.
Planned to consider "the hazards
of transportation surrounding a
stricken area," an advisory group of
technical experts will be created to
examine public utilities, gas lines,
water mains, bridges and other vital
municipal services.
The program, as laid doivn by the
council, encompasses all possible exi-
gencies. Training will be given toy
"ham" radio men, auxiliary telephone
operators- and. any other groups fit
to aid in emergency communication
and transportation establishment. ,
The after-effects of disaster have
also been taken into account. Aux-
iliary groups will be formed to pro-
vide food for homneless victims, and
such miscellaneous services as miss-
ing persons bureaus or messengers
will be trained.
In its latest report on Michigan's
current steel shortage, the council
stressed that "people are riot asked to
give their iron and steel scrap." The
metal will be sold at Washington-
determined prices with a new prior-
ity assuring its use in defense work.
Oberlin Chemist
Harry M. Holmes
To TalkTuesday
Dr. Harry M. Holmes, chairman of
the chemistry department of Oberlin
University, will deliver a University
Lecture on "A Chemist's Adventures
in Medicine" at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday in
Room 303 Chemistry Building.
Dr. Holmes, who has the reputation
of being able to put technical or
semi-technical subjects across so that
those with only slight knowledge in
the field can understand, is perhaps
as well known among his colleagues
as any other present-day chemist. He
is president-elect of the American
Chemical Society, and has held an
office in the society since 1914. His
work has centered largely around
problems in colloid chemistry and
bio-chemistry, and he was among the
foremost men in the isolation of crys-
talline vitamin A.
His talk will be a discussion of
his work in bio-chemistry, with em-
phasis upon the vitamin A, in partic-
ular. -By way of introduction, Dr.
Holmes will show how, like. Pasteur,
he entered into a "reckless" bio-
chemical investigation-that of vita-
mins-without any previous training
in bio-chemistry.
