CDVO Continues To Prepare
Civilians For Service At Home

The Civilian Defense Volunteer Of-
fice continued its blanket barrage
along the home front yesterday with
the opening of its second training
class in home service work for fami-
lies of army and navy servicemen.
The class, to meet for twelve weeks
at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays in North
Hall, will take up the problems of
military welfare programs, commun-
ity organization and use of communi-
President Reports
Funds Insufficient
For Scholarships
Insufficiency of scholarship funds
for students - insufficient for a stu-
dent body of which more than 60 per
cent earn part or all of their expenses
--was stressed by President Alexan-
der G. Ruthven in his recent report
to the Board of Regents.
Pointing out that the "need be-
comes greater as increased fees and
rising costs of living add to the eA-
penses which students must bear,"
President Ruthven asserted that "un-
doubtedly more scholarship funds are
needed.
"In 1940-41 the total number of
holders of scholarships and fellow-
ships was 607, less than five per cent
of the entire resident student body.
"Of these 445 were undergraduates
and 162 were graduates, and of the
awards given 46.8 per cent covered
tuition only and 30.2 per cent more
were sums of money $200 or less. This
is by no means adequate," he said.

ty agencies. With another class meet-
ing at 10 a.m. Mondays, the CDVO
announces further instruction if
warranted by future enrollments.
CDVO or Red Cross affiliation is the
only prerequisite for this course.
Also a branch of civilian defense
preparation, an eight-week course in
"Consumer Problems in Wartime"
will be given by Prof. Z. C. Dickinson
of the economics department opening
Feb. 16. This course, part of the
University Extension Service, will dis-
cuss such questions as high living
costs, rent and price control, con-
sumers' research, and civilian versus
military supplies. This course is open
to all county residents registered with
the CDVO and will enroll members
at the CDVO's armory headquarters.
Other proposed courses stress the
importance of civilian health in war-
time. Volunteer health aides will be
trained in order to relieve the over-
burdened public school health pro-
gram in Ann Arbor. Addition of new
pupils have placed a heavy load on
local facilities and volunteers are
needed.
Hospital service training has al-
ready been undertaken at St. Jos-
eph's Hospital in order to lessen the
shortage of trained nurses. This class
was chosen on the basis of time avail-
able for duty and no further. enroll-
ments are planned.
In the field of nutrition, CDVO
volunteers, in cooperation with state
defense authorities have surveyed lo-
cal groceries to discover a gratifying
increase in the amount of vitamins
available to consumers purchasing
bread, cereals, and flour.

Students Plan
To Participate
ht Cit y Musical
The Ann Arbor Civic Music Asso-
ciation's presentation of "Battle
Songs of Freedom," slated for 4:00
p.m., Feb. 22 in Hill Auditorium, will
mark the initial participation of Uni-
versity students in this annual event.
The 1942 performance, borrowing
its theme from the national emer-
gency, will feature patriotic songs
which will be sung by the local
church choirs and lyric men's choir,
accompanied by the Civic Orchestra.
As an innovation this year, the audi-
ence will be invited to join in the
singing.
For the first time in the course of
the organization's history, the songs
of the program will be linked to-
gether by continuity, prepared this
year in the advanced playwriting
class of Prof. Kenneth T. Rowe, of
the English department.
Songs of the Revolutionary, Civil,
First and Second World War Peri-
ods, furnished the basis of the stu-
dent script. After preliminary re-
search and writing had been done by
the class as a whe, a three-man
committee was selected with John
Ebelke, Grad., Sheldon Finkelstein,
'42, and John Craig, '42, writing the
final version.
Joseph E. Maddy, Professor of Ra-
dio Music Instruction, visualizing the
possibilities of the script, sent 100
copies to the State Department of
Public Instruction, which will dis-
tribute them for use among other
Michigan towns. A copy will also be
sent to Washington to be used for
morale programs.
SDD Will Decide
Today On Merger
With New League
Members of the Michigan Chapter
of the Student Defenders of Democ-
racy will vote today on the proposed
merger of that group with the newly
formed national progressive youth
organization, the Student League of
America.
Meeting at 4:30 p.m. in the Union,
SDD will discuss the merger and
then decide whether or not to follow
the parent organization into the Stu-
dent League of America.
The Student League of America
was founded at the National Student
Merger Convention held at Harvard
University during the Christmas Va-
cation. Homer Swander,1'43, chair-
man of the Michigan Chapter of
SDD and dlegate to the convention,
was elected there to the national
presidency of the new organization.
Not Even Auto Accident
Can Break Lulu's Record
Hurrying to school shortly after
8 Tuesday morning, 11-year-old
Lulu Nix-bundled up because it
was cold-was thinking about her
good record for prompt attendance
and hoping she wouldn't be late
to class.
She was careful where she
walked because her mother had
warned her it was slippery. When
she came to the intersection at
Packard St. and S. Fifth Ave., she
didn't stop to look in every direc-
tion as she usually did-and the
car that was bearing down on her
went unseen.
Today little Lulu Nix is in St.
Joseph's Hospital suffering from
head injuries received after she
was struck by a car.
But Lulu isn't worried about her

record any more because the
teacher said she wanted her to
hurry up and get well. The teach-
er said she wasn't going to count
the absence-because it was slip-
pery.
