Signallers Use,
New Devices
Code Aptitude App, atus
Is Helpful In Traiping
Signallers of the University's ROTC
have just acquired two of the latest
signal training devices used by the
United States or any other army.
Designed to test the psychological
aptitude of the cadet at the very be-
ginning of training, the code aptitude
alparatus is simply a specialized
phonograph which plays records of,
code signals which try the applicant's
ability to distinguish between dots,
dashes and combinations of them.
The code recorder and keyer are
used much as voice recordings are
used in speech correction. They en-
able the student to record on tape his
signals and then, with the aid of a
photo-electric cell to hear them
played back.
Beside being used by Signal Corps
cadets, the Civil Pilots Training cour-
ses make use of the ROTC equipment.

Psyhitrs Says World
Threatened Bly A pathity

NEW YORK, Nov. 17-/P)-The
R.A.F.'s chief mental troubleshooter,
Dr, Robert Dick illespie, told a med-
ical audience here tonight that a
post-war mental epidemic threatens
The epidemic, he predicted, would
hit nations and peoples in two ways:
one is a revival of the almost-for-
gotten medieval mental trouble
known as accidie, a serf-like apathy
of the brain, the other as a mental
restlessness which would rebel against
social order.
"The continual thwarting of the
desire for activity produces restless-
ness and irritability followed by re-
bellion," he said.
"After the war we may expect ei-
ther a dangerous restlessness or an
equally dangerous apathy unless we
are as energetic in organizing peace
as we have been in organizing war."
