Civil Service Provides Varied
Government Jobs For Students

Governmerinat Wor. . .
The United States Civil Service
Commission has announced the an-
nual Junior Professional Assistant
and Student Aid examinations de-
signed to recruit young college grad-
uates and junior and senior students
for positions in government service.
Among the optional branches in-
cluded in the Junior Professional As-
sistant examinations this year are
chemist, forester, geologist, olericul-
terist and pomologist. A four-year
college course leading to a bachelor's
degree is required, however, seniors
and graduate students may receive
provisional appointments.
Engineering, political science, pub-
lic administration, and statistics are
the four optional subjects of the
Student Aid examination. Applicants
must have completed at least three
years of college study and must have
indicated their intention of majoring
in the optional subject chosen. Pro-
visions are made for students finish-
ing their junior year not later than
next June. Employment in student
aid positions will generally be during
school vacations and when the stu-
dents are furloughed they may return
to college. Applications for both ex-
aminations must be on file with the
Commission's office not later than
Feb. 2, 1942. .
The Commission urgently needs
people to fill Personnel Assistants jobs
which are now open. Positions now
available are, Junior Occupational
Analyst for the Federal Security
Agency, and Personnel Assistant and
Principal Personnel Clerk for various
government agencies.
Russian Langua e
Is Offered In Two
Intensive Courses
Two intensive courses in Russian
language wil be presented'next sem-
ester in order to meet the needs of
students who wish to be interpreters.
A prerequisite of one semester of
Russian is required by one of the
courses, and three semesters of Rus-
sian is needed for the other. Both
of these courses will run eight hours
a week, giving eight credit hours.
In these classes oral practice will
be stressed in order to provide a bet-
ter understanding and speaking'
knowledge of the language.
Those students who would be in-
terested in taking one of these
courses should get in touch with Mrs.
Lila Pargment, Room 2022 in Angell
Elementary courses in the Russian
language are at present being con-
ducted by Prof. M. S. Pargment of
the Department of Romance Lan-
guages. The new courses will be di-
rected toward practical needs of fu-
ture interpreters.
Cline To Discuss
Radio In Defense
Jack Cline of the electrical en-
gineering department and C.P.T.
training program will speaR at 8 p.m.
today in the Union before a meeting
of the American Institute of Civil
Cline, who is experienced both in
Aviation and radio engineering, will
speak on the subject, "Radio in Air
Navigation." George Gotchall, '42E,
secretary of the AIEE, explained that
the speaker will deal particularly with
the defense aspects of his problem.

DihtitonsV . .
Because an insufficient number of
examination applications were re-
ceived last Dec. 31 for a student diet-
itian position at the Army Medical
Center at Washington, D.C., William
C. Hull, executive assistant to the
Civil Service Commission, recently
,announced that the Commission will
accept applications until Jan. 31.
In extending the date for receipt
of applications, the Commission also
amended a previous statement to the
effect that now the anount of de-
duction for subsistence and quarters
during the training period is $330 a
year, this constituting a substantial
decrease from the former high fig-
ure. Salary for the post is $420 a
year, less-the deduction. '
Also, Hull pointed out that persons
successfully completing the training
course at the Medical Center will be
eligible for retention in the service as
dietitians, positions which pay $1,800
a year. "t'his, of course, is dependent
upon a prescribed promotional test of
Applications for examination must
be sent to the Civil Service Commis-
sion at Washington, D.C., and must
be on file not later than Jan. 31.

East and West are represented in
the January check on Michigan mike
celebrities, as two more Abbotites
make good, a tribute to Morris Hall,
cradle of baby broadcasters.
"Rapidly ascending to Broadway
and radio stardom" is Ralph Pell, '37,
remembered here for his work in Play
Production and University broadcast-
ing. Curreptly playing leading roles
in the March of Time's weekly radio
re-creation of the world's news, he
also has appeaed in a number of
New York stage successes, and 'the
radio serials, "Valiant Lady" and
"We Are Always Young."
Excellent work as assistant stage
manager and actor's understudy in
"What a Life" promoted Bell to a
regular dramatic role in the produc-
tion, which ran for two seasons.
Subsequently, Bell succeeded Mil-
ton Berle in the stellar role of the
1940 hit play, "See My Lawyer." He
also has appeared in "Stop Press"
and "Any Day Now."
S* * *
Michigan mikewomen claim their
share of the limelight laurels, too.
Most publicized at present is pretty
Jean Ruth, Morris Hall protege,
known as "Beverely of Reveille" on
Denver's KFEL. Sparkling-voiced
Beverely, who really has vocal oomph,
is directly responsible for the fact
that men of Fort Logan, Colo., and
three other Army posts get up before
dawn without discontent, for her
sharp humor on the 5:30 a.m. re-
corded music program is tremen-
dously topular. She has so great a
following that Army Morale Officers
send her daily announcements they
want their men to remember.
They remember.
Organ Recital Cancelled
Prof. Palmer Christian will not give
his regularly scheduled organ recital
today in Hill Auditorium, because of
preparations for the Oratorical Asso-
ciation Lecture. He will resume his
recitals Wednesday afternoon, Jan.

Sports Program To Build

In Future Officers
A naval officer must be more than
a man who can navigate a vessel
and give the necessary orders to the
men under him.
He must be self-reliant, self-con-
fident, physically as well as morally
courageous, and able to take it.
With this definition of a naval
officer in mind the Michigan NROTC
has instituted a series of courses
which will give its cadets an oppor-
tunity to become proficient in sports
which will build up these charac-
teristics, it was announced recently
by the department of Naval Science
and Tactics.
Swimming, the officers of the de-
partment feel, is a necessity for any-
one who plans to follow the sea.
Every member of the NROTC should,
therefore, strive to pass a swimming
test before he graduates from the
More than that, those in charge of
the NROTC program feel that swim-
ming is an excellent sport to build
up general physical condition. With
both this and the practical value of
toe sport in mind, they have pro-
v ved for optional classes in swim-
ming for NROTC cadets. To begin
next semester, these classes will be
instructed by none other than the
master himself, varsity coach Matt
Classes in boxing and wrestling,
under the supervision of Dr. May,
have already been instituted for
those members of the NROTC who
desire them. Meeting once a week
in Waterman Gymnasium, these
groups learn the essentials of self-
defense, valuable in building up the
salf-confidence and physical rugged-
ness of any prospective officer.
Just as sports will find a place in
self-confideice and physical rugged-
ness, then, they have already found
an important place in the schooling
of the NROTC here at Michigan.
