New 'Technic'
Features War


Plant, Artillery,
Are Described

A magazine packed with defense
information will be offered students
of the engineering college at 8 a.m.
tomorrow when the January issue of
The Michigan Technic is put'on sale.
Heading the list of defense arti-
cles will be an account of a trip
through Ford's gigantic Willow Run
bomber plant in Ypsilanti by Keith
L. Smith, '43E, entitled "World's
Largest Bomber Plant."
Of equal interest is "Revolution In
Artillery," by Col. H. W. Miller of the
engineering drawing department, in
which is described the development
of artillery from its early stages to
modern applications.
Completing the list of articles,
"Miracle of Concrete," by William 0.
Jacobs, '44E, will describe Grand
Coulee Dam, the largest edifice ever
constructed by man.
Lieut.-Col. H. W. D. Riley of the
military science department will be
introduced to Technic readers in the
feature, "The Technic Presents ...,"
as will students Henry "Hank" Field-
ing, '42E, and Robert "Bud" Keetch,
Students who neglected to buy their
December issue before vacation may
get them with the January issue

CPT Course
Now Taking
Applications for the spring Civil-
ian Pilots' Training Program are be-
ing accepted now for the new course
that will start February 17.
The present course will be finished
around February 1, and approxi-
mately 45 of the original 50 students
will be graduated. Most of these are
already through with the ground
school work and have passed their
flight examinations.
The Civilian Pilot Training Pro-
gram was begun a few years ago by
a Government money appropriation
to develop civilian aviation. The
complete program consists of four
consecutive courses: Elementary,
Secondary, Cross-Country and In-
structor, the first two of which are
offered by the University. Upon suc-
cessful completion of the Elementary
course a student private may obtain
a pilot's license for small aircraft up
to 80 H. P.
The next course, which will ex-
tend over a 12- to 15-week period,
will be finished by May in order to
start a course for the summer session.
Students are urged to apply early,
since last year's quota of 50 will
probably be maintained.
The applicant must pass a rigid
physical examination, must be a
male citizen of the United States, be'
at least 19 but not over 26 years of
age, and be of at least sophomore
standing. The written permission of
his parents must be obtained by any-
one under 21 years of age.
These courses offer an excellent
opportunity for those who are eligi-
ble for the draft but who wish to
finish school before entering the
Army or Navy.

musical groups long before the ink
becomes dry."

A professor of political science and
four members of the history depart-
ment will tour nearby Army en-
campments in the capacity of civilian
lecturers to present short courses in

which they are fighting.

tical science department, will lecture
upon "The Causes of the Second

War Department Bureau of Public

ert MacDowell and Preston Slosson.

law has fallen almost into disuse.
The program will include a discus-
sion of the European political scene,
talks on the various phases of war
in the Far East, lectures on our war
effort both from civilian and a mili-
tary point of view and lastly a sur-
vey of the role of the American sol-
dier who is fighting for his country.
