Enrolling Ends
For New Aid
Qualified Civilian Women
Given Final Opportunity
For Red Cross Training
Ending a three-day period of reg-
istration for the newly formed Nurses
Aid course sponsored by the Red
Cross, qualified women will have a
final opportunity to enroll from 9 to
12 a.m. today at the Civilian Defense
Volunteers' Office in the Armory.
Restricted to 30 members, the ap-
plicants for the course must satisfy
'three requirements, according to
Mrs. Merle Maline, Red Cross Exec-
utive Secretary. Only women be-
tween the ages of 18 and 50 who
:can pass a physical exam and have
a high school education will be al-
lowed to enroll in the course.
Designed to provide registered
nurses with trained assistants dur-
ing the present emergency and in
times of peace, for work in public
health, hospitals and other nursing
fields, the seven-week course will
offer 80 hours of practical training.
Classes are expected to start April 1.
The. Nurses Aid course is being
offered in Ann Arbor for the first
time and will be financed by the
county chapter of the Red Cross.
Instruction will be given by regis-
tered nurses with the cooperation of
the University and St. Joseph's hop-
At the completion of the course,
Red Cross certificates and pins will
be awarded the members.
Royon Warns
Of Disasters
To War Youth
"Among the children of Europe
today,, there are more mental casu-
alties resulting from evacuation than
bombs," Dr. Andree Royon, Belgian
child psychologist, declared in an
address on behalf of the American
Save the Children Federation yes-
terday in the Rackham Auditorium.
"There are 130,000,000 children in
Europe, and not a single one leads
a normal child's life," Dr. Royon
claims. "Privation and now apathy
are everywhere."
The war has brought a marked in-
crease in delinquency, stinnilated
by disorganization of families and
schools, and aided by blackouts.
"The effect of the tempo and ten-
sion of war on 'young minds pro-
duces a nervousness and inability to
settle down," Dr. Royon asserted.
Children under two stay with
their mothers, while those over five
years of age a'e evacuated with their
school units. It has been the evacua-
tion of the two-to-five-years-olds in-
clusive that has given the British
government the most grief.
'here are 3,000,000 under-fives in
England, and consequently the need
for nursery shelters, such as those
spOinsored by SCF and a sister branch
in England, is tremendous, Dr. Royon
ethphasized. But 28 months of ex-
perience has proven that this is the
only solution to the problem of child
health and security.

Another criticism of Men's Judi-'
ciary for which it cannot be entirelyI
blamed, is a lack of interest within
the council itself. Proposed reme-
dies for this include granting of judi-
siary powers similar to those now
exercised in elections. Some sources
of opinion advocate more responsi-
bility and proper prestige for council
members as a possible solution.
According to Slocum (who is con-
tinually receiving letters addressed to
the "President of University of Mich-
igan Student Body") only the council
president and$ secretary have enough
duties to warrant a full-time job.
Slocum is attending a convention
at Purdue University at the end of
this month to see how student gov-
ernment works at other schools. He
also plans to propose a reorganiza-
tion of the present Men's Judiciary.
Present plans for council reorgani-
zation ill be based both on systems
already in use elsewhere and on con-
ditions here.

Dr. Elmer Townsley of the physi-'
cal education department will pre-
sent arm bands and Red Cross First
Aid Certificates to the 10 Boy Scouts

To Hear Talk
Prof. Ham Will Discuss
Gullibility vs. genuine humor will
be the topic under discussion when
Prof. Edward B. Ham of the Depart-
ment of Romance Languages pre-
sents the seventh lecture in the Cer-
cle Francais series at 4:15 p.m. Wed-
nesday in Room D, Alumni Memorial
Drawing from some of the "Curios-
ites Medievales" that he has studied,
Professor Ham will show two aspects
in interpretation of these strange
tales from medieval literature. Until
recently, students of medieval writing
were of the opinion that they were
constructed to cater to a gullible~con-
temporary public, but in the past few
years the idea has come forth that
perhaps, after all, they were directed
merely to the readers' sense of hu-
Conspicuous among the stories in
question are the unique narratives of
the life habits of animals.

Drs. Carl And Gerty Cori
Will Present Lectures
On Organic Substances
Three lectures in two days by Drs.
Carl and Gerty Cori of the Depart-
ment of Pharmacology, University of
Washington Medical School, will be
presented March 27 and 28 under
the auspices of the Biological Chem-
istry Department and the Medical
First of the talks, all to be pre-
sented in the Rackham Amphithe-
atre, and illustrated, will be given
by Dr. Carl Cori at 4:15 p.m. Friday,
March 27. His topic will be "The
Role of Enzymes in Carbohydrate
The second in the series will be giv-
en at 8:15 p.m. the same day by Dr.
Gerty Cori. She will discuss "The
Isolation and Properties of Some En-
zymes Concerned with Carbohydrate
Last Lecture Saturday
Last of the lectures will be offered
at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 28, by
Dr. Carl Cori. His subject will be
"The Enzymatic Conversion of Glu-
cose to Glycogen."
Drs. Cori, a team of husband and
wife, were born in Prague, Czecho-
slovakia and came to this country in
1922. Bth received their M.D.'s at
Prague in 1920.
From 1922 to 1931 they served as
biochemists at the State Institute for
the Study of Malignant Diseases in
Buffalo, N.Y. Since 1931, the Coris
have been associated with the Medi-
cal School at the University of Wash-
ington. Dr. Gerty Coi is a research
associate in pharmacology in the
same department as her husband.
Outstanding Team
The Coris are considered one of the
most able husband and wife teams
in the country, distinguished in this
respect much as are Drs. George and
Gladys Dick, noted for their studies
of scarlet fever and the "Dick" test.
Noted for his studies on the syn-
thesis of glycogen, the reserve carbo-
hydrate of the body and the fuel for
muscular exercise, Dr. Carl Cori was
elected in 1941 a member of the Na-
tional Academy of Sciences.
The lectures will be open to the
public, but will be of special value
to students in medicine and the bio-
logical sciences.

Dr. Stan bach Say
Is'Tuned In IF
"In tune with the war effort" is
the description Dr. Charles Staubach
of the Spanish department gives to
La Sociedad Hispanica's current pro-
duction, "La Independencia."
Of primary importance is the spe-'
cial language experience the mem-
Enzyme Talks
Will Be Given

s Spanish Play
SithWar Efforts'I
bers of the cast are gaining. Facility
in speaking Spanish may enable the
students to acquire positions.as in-
terpreters, liaison officers or radio
monitor listeners, Staubach reports.
The play itself is an expression of
the principles of democracy, human
decency and dignity. The author,
ManuelBreton de los Herreros, rein-
forces time and again his belief in
the very principles for which we are
fighting today. The betrayal of the
hero is reminiscent of similar situ-
ations in totalitarian countries today,
and the triumph of the liberal cause
echoes our goal.
Perhaps it's Mr. Hitler's fault, but
La Sociedad is finding it difficult to
obtain guns for its revolution scenes!
War conditions have made it impos-
sible for any of the miilita'y groups in
town to lend rifles to the cast. Con-
sequently, the property committee is
feverishly devising reasonable fac-
similes to serve the purpose.
Humorously speaking, ten men in
the 1-A classification are having a
golden opportunity for a little ad-
vance military training! They are
undergoing a week of intensive train-
ing in marching, shouldering arms,
and adapting themselves to uniforms.
Describing "La Independencia" as
its. "biggest and best" production, La
Sociedad Hispanica will present it at
8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre. The play is a comedy
of manners of the eighteenth century
in Spain, and the costuming will re-
flect the life of that period. The au-
thor was little affected by the Ro-
mantic movement, and in "La Inde-
pendencia" there are melodramatic
touches which suggest that he was
mocking the Romantics. Sparkling
dialogue, exciting and hilarious ac-
tion and outstanding characters in-
dicate that "La Independencia" will
be an unusual performance.
Tickets for the play will be on sale
Monday and Tuesday at the box of-
fice in the League.

One of the first contributions to
the Bomber Scholarship Fund will
be made from the proceeds of "Pro-
fessor Mamlock," Russian film to be
shown at 8 p.m. today in Natural
Science Auditorium.
This movie, showing the effects of
Nazi rule upon a Jewish doctor in
Germany, was one of the first anti-
Nazi pictures made and is still rated
by critics as one of the finest for-
eign films shown in this country.
"Professor Mamlock" is being pre-
sented by the American Student Un-
ion as part of its educational pro-
gram and with the desire to help
further the plan of providing schol-
arships for Michigan soldiers when
they return from service in the armed

Riflemen Suffer Mass Def eat

Disaster overtook the University
ROTC Rifle Team last week when in
one shooting they lost simultaneous
matches to the University of Tennes-

University of California, Coe College
(Cedar Rapids, Ia.), the University
of Wisconsin and the University of
What little encouragement there
was was obtained from the fact that
their only victory, over Purdue Uni-
versity by a score of 1,836 to 1,678,
came where it was most effective-in
the fiiing for the Big Ten champion-
Led by James Shelden, '45, the
University team fired a score of
3,593 for the ten-man matches, and
a total of 1,831 for the five-man
scoring. Shelden turned in a total

of 374 out of a possible 400 as high
The scores submitted by the other
schools were: Tennessee, 3,684; Cali-
