Canadian literature to illustrate his

persistence of the French feeling in
Canada and its importance, especially
since the capitulation of France in
Development along this line has
concentrated both on preservation of
the history of New France and on re-

course is one of more than 30 courses
now being given under the ESMDT

desperate and ever-growing need for
trained men to serve as ordnance in-

The" inspection course is a full-

a day, five days a week, for the 12-
week period. During that time the
men taking the course will be salaried
at $125 a month by the government.

Tabulations of the Student Plans
Inquiry, which indicate that nearly
one-half of the responding Univer-
sity students not graduating in May
plan to enroll this summer, went to
deans and directors of the Univer-
sity's 14 schools and colleges yester-
Using probable enrollment figures
as a working base, later to be sup-
plemented by tabulations of desired
courses, each school and college willz
draft its own war-term- academict
Of all non-graduating students,c
5,747, or 73 percent, returned ques-E
tionnaires, the War Board said. Allz
tabulations have been made upon
the 73.4 percent of the sttdents who1
responded, and not upon the total
University enrollment.
Summer Attendance Figures j
Probable long summer term at-
tendance, based upon the question-3

Unique Steel Huts
Used By Marines
WASHINGTON, Feb. 28. --(A')-
The same type of hut keeps Marines
cool in Panama and warm in Iceland.
The Navy calls the pre-fabricated
steel houses "Quonset Huts" because
they are made in Quonset, Rhode Is-
land, and says the huts "look like
overgrown oil-drums turned on their
sides and partially buried."
They are built on a foundation of
light steel trusses bolted together.
Over this is laid a wooden floor
which comes in sections.
Between the composition inside
walls and the corrugated metal out-
side walls an insulation wood fiber
is spread to give warmth in cold
countries and to hold out the heat
in the tropics.
When used in the tropics, the huts
have screened doors and windows at
each end, but in the Arctic wooden
bulkheads are at the ends to keep
out the cold.
Each hut, designed to permit 10
single-tier bunks, can accommodate
about 25 men, although in the Canal
Zone a smaller number occupies each

students, indicate that they will
enroll in the full-length summer
1,948, or 33.9 percent, are un-
certain as to summer enroll-
1,278, or 22,2 percent, said that
they would not return to attend
the University this summer.
Accepting the return of question-
naires by nearly three-quarters of
the non-graduating students as "very
gratifying," the' War Board yester-
day took the following stand in the
estimation of summer term enroll-
"It is probable that some, and per-
haps many, of the 3,226 students who
indicated that they will not return,
or are uncertain about returning,
for the summer term will later de-
cide to enroll, particularly if the
University is successful in develop-
ing some program of financial aid
for students participated in acceler-
ated study."
No Information Available
No information is available con-
cerning enrollment in the eight-week
summer session, which will run con-
currently with the 16-week summer
term, and it is quite possible that the
short session will attract as many

students as usual. In past summers,
the majority of summer session en-
rollment has been composed of high
school teachers, August graduates
and other students who lacked four
or six hours credit. University ad-
ministrators are anxious to deter-
mine the approximate summer en-
rollment in order to find out what
percentage of the operative costs can
be defrayed by tuition money.
Prof. Harlow J. Heneman, execu-
tive director of the War Board, said
that the accelerated program, as out-
lined by the new calendar, will make
it possible for students to receive a
bachelor's degree in two years and
eight months.
Returns from a survey of 700 high
schools to determine the probable
enrollment of freshmen in the sum-
mer term will be announced soon.
Students in the education, phar-
macy and forestry schools responded
10 percent to the questionnaire. The
percentage return from other schools
is as follows: architecture-69.6;
business administration-87.7; den-
tistry-83.1; engineering-90.1; grad-
uate-52.3; law-48; L.S.& A.-70.3;
medicine-73.8; music-95.3, and
public health-51.99 No question-
naires were submitted to the nursing
school as all nurses attend year-
around classes.
