Word of the enemy tactics in Ma-

They were contained, he said, in a

in Manila newspapers. It said:
"1. Anyone who inflicts or at-.

Organize Service Unit
For Civilian Defense
Organization of the Boy Scouts in-
to a working unit of civilian defense
is being directed by Dr. Elmer
Townsley of the physical education
department, Mr. Richard Boys of
the English department, and Officer
Mayfield of the city police force.
A program has been arranged
whereby the older group of Boy
Scouts, ranging in age from fifteen
to seventeen, will receive training in
emergency work. University fresh-
men who are interested should get
in touch with any member of the
committee for further details.
The course will include training in
first aid, firemanship, fingerprint-
ing, public health, messenger work
and various other emergency jobs.
The period of training will be at
least three months. Meetings will
be held for three hours every Satur-
day afternoon in Waterman Gym-
In order to qualify as a member
of the group a boy must be a first
class scout, must pass a physical
examination, and must have par-
ental consent.
Education Leaders
Open Meet Today
State educational leaders will hold
a three-day Conference on Teacher
Education beginning at 8 a.m. today
in the Union. The purpose of the
meeting will be to discuss the train-
ing of teachers with emphasis on
specific subjects.
Prof. Harold M. Dorr of the po-
litical science department Will serve
as chairman of the social science
discussion, Prof. Hayward Keniston
of the romance languages depart-
ment will lead the group discussion
of language teacher training, and
George E. Myers of the education
school will serve as co-chairman of
the vocational education discussion.

Students Fear
New Schedule
We'll go nuts!"
Well, anyway, general campus
opinion following the announcement
of the change in the University pro-
gram yesterday favored a definite
increase in cases of mental strain due
to the increased load on the student
Josephine Cole, '43, does not sanc-
tion the changes. "It will create war
hysteria," she said. "and mental
troubles will result from the unset-
tled states of mind."
Graduation and a consequent job
in one of the defense industries was
brought nearer for Fred Peterson,
'42E, who likes the idea of the re-
vised schedle. Also in favor is John
Riopelle, '44E, who wants to get
through school and organize his life
before becoming involved in the
present7 war.
Bud Brandt, '44, considers the
move a vital necessity, but added
that having no summer vacation will
prevent a number of students from
earning their tuition fees.
"It doesn't matter to me," re-
marked Ruth Paley, '44, "I was going
to flunk out anyway."

Employers Rush To Hire Engineers
In Unprecedented Demnand For Men

An employment boom such as was
never felt before runs rampant
through the College of Engineering
today, as desperate industries stam-
pede to sign up an ever-diminishing
number of available prospective en-
gineering graduates.
Speaking for the whole college,
Dean Ivan C. Crawford stated thatI
'never in the history of the collegeI
has the graduate been in such de-
mand as he is at the present time.
His services are not only sought by
industry, but he is also indispensable
to many branches of the military
and naval services."
But in the various engineering de-
partments themselves, the report was
even more enthusiastic. Typical is
the estimate of Prof. A. D. Moore of
the electrical engineering depart-
ment, who declared, "The demand is
terrific! We haven't one-twentieth
the men we need to fill the positions
which are open."
Demand Is Out Of Sight
"We are placing men as fast as
possible," he continued, "but the de-
mand is completely out of sight. We
have never had a year like this one."
Equally amazed is Prof. R. S. Haw-
ley of the mechanical engineering de-
partment, who reports that the sit-
uation in his department is so acute
that the students won't even sign for
interviews because they realize that
they can just about pick the job they
want for themselves.
"Many offers have been made by
the industries," he said, "but only
about ten percent have been ac-
cepted by the students." Last year,
he added, interviewers showed up
early in November, but this year they
were hard at work the second week of
school and have been hard at it ever
Hundreds More Needed
In the Department of Civil En-
gineering Prof. L. M. Gram laid the
cause of the rush to the fact that
men are being called by the govern-
ment and industries holding defense
contracts, and testified that he could
place "hundreds of more men than
we have available."
Going from bad to worse, Prof. D.

W. McCready of the chemical en-
gineering department reported that
the demand was so great that more
than one large industry has even
written to ask information on stu-
dents who had dropped out or were
flunked out of school.
"It is interesting to note," he
pointed out, "that the Army and
Naval Reserves are taking 15 to 20
percent of the men, and that these
men are usually the better students
from the standpoint of grade aver-

Nurses Will Carry On
With Exams As Usual

office of Miss Rhoda Reddig, Direc-
tor of the School of Nursing, the
changes in the University school year
made yesterday by the Board of
Deans will have very little influence
on the students enrolled in that
Their semesters will not be
changed and their examinations will
be given as usual whenever the course
is over.

are still choosy," he went on, "but
by February I expect that about 60
percent of the June graduates will
be placed. And there isn't a single
graduate on the department's files
looking for a job. There was never
a year like this one!"
No less harried, Prof. R. L. Morri-
son of the highway engineering de-
partment lamented, "I haven't had
anyone to place in so long I can't
remember when I did have. Prospec-
tive employers keep howling for men
we just haven't got."
Contrary to intermittent rumors,
nothing has yet Ibeen done to give
blanket deferment to engineering
students. However, it is expected
that the prospect of an accelerating
demand for engineers until the end
of the war must soon force some ac-
tion designed to keep abreast of that
