Makes Annual
Banquet Plans
Group Will Also Sponsor
Speech By S. Q. Wong,
Summerhays Announces
Students in the College of Engi-
neering will get together at their an-
nual Engineering Banquet Wednes-
day, April 15, Engineering Council
president Bob Summerhays, '42E, an-
nounced yesterday.
In addition to the banquet, the En-
gineering Council is planning to
sponsor a special talk by Mr. S. Q.
Wong, former city engineer at Can-
ton, China, and hence given the job
of going out to survey the damage
done by Japanese bombs. This event
will be scheduled in the near future,
Summerhays indicated.
In the first step of what is to be
a continued practice, the Council has
voted to place a picture of the late
Lieut. George Cannon, killed in ac-
tion at Midway Island, in the West
Engineering library, with an appro-
priate caption. It is planned to give
similar recognition to such other
Michigan men who might be killed
in action.I
David Wehmeyer, '44E, was named
editor-in-chief of the next issue of
The Arch, freshman engineering
handbook distributed to incoming en-
gineering students to acquaintthem
with Michigan traditions, especially
those of the College of Engineering.
Final business at the diversified
meeting held earlier in the week was
further discussion of the proposed
course in Aerial Bombardment Pro-
tection to be given by Prof. Glenn L.
Alt of the civil engineering depart-
ment under the auspices of the Coun-
cil. No definite action has yet been
taken, Jim Edmunds, '43E, reported.

attitude is somewhat erroneous. Af-
ter all, every man on campus is a
Union member."
One of the more extreme charges
against the Union--and one heard
only in some quarters-is supposed
use of the Union by junior committee
chairmen to advance their own
chances for a senior job.
Sibley pointed out yesterday that
the Union, much the same as any
other campus organization on merit
appointment system, is sometimes
confronted with plans that are of
more value to the planner's standing1
than to the campus as a whole. "In
such cases," Sibley asserted, "the
plan doesn't go through and the jun-
ior's standing isn't aided."

that the majority of Union func-

to the least important are set up
more or less traditionally. Sibley list-

Eleven Boy Scouts were presentedI

armbands and Red Cross First Aid
Certificates as they became members
of the Emergency Service Corps at a
banquet Tuesday in Lane Hall.
The boys have undergone a period
of training in emergency work under
the direction of Dr. Elmer Townsley
of the physical education depart-
ment, Dr. Richard Boys of the Eng-
lish department, and Officer May-
field of the Ann Arbor police force.
At the banquet, Dr. Boys praised the
cooperation between the town of
Ann Arbor and the University in
working together on the ESC.
Walter MacPeek, Scout executive,
welcomed the boys with a message
written by President Roosevelt, stat-
ing that next to the armed forces,
the youth-training jobs were most

Financial Help
For Religious
Study Offered
Seniors or graduate students who
expect to prepare for the ministry,
religious education or similar pursuits
are eligible to apply for several schol-
arships and fellowships awarded
through the University.
Most attractive among these, be-
cause the holder can make his own
selection of a place to study, is known
as the Margaret Kraus Ramsdell
Fellowship. The fund for this award
was established in memory of a
daughter of Dean Edward H. Kraus
of the College of Literature, Science
and the Arts and Mrs. Kraus.
After success as a student of his-
tory and as a teacher,Margaret
Kraus married Dr. Edward Rams-
dell, also a University graduate.
While teaching at Dana Hall, Bos-
ton, she met with a fatal accident.
It was to perpetuate one of her major
interests that her husband and par-
ents established the fellowship.
According to the Regents' Pro-
ceedings, it is introduced as follows:
"The fellowship shall be used to
assist graduates of the University of
Michigan to pursue advanced studies
in this country or abroad in religious
education or in preparation for the
Christian ministry."
Selection of fellows is based upon
the qualifications of (a) integrity of
moral character, (b) genuineness of
religious interests, (c) capacity for
superior scholarship, (d) personal at-
tractiveness and (e) qualities making
for effective leadership in the church.
Additional fellowships are offered
in the Chicago Schools of Theology
and the Biblical Seminary of New
York. Those interested should con-
sult the counselor in religious edu-
cation, Room 9, University Hall.

Miller, toastmaster, offered theI
group of trained boys to the mayor,I
as the Boy Scouts' contribution to
civilian defense. Mayor Leigh Young
expressed his pleasure at finding
such constructive work being done
for the defense program.
The principal speaker, Dr. R. Clyde
Ford of Ypsilanti, described the
strength and courage that boys of
scouting age are able to show in
meeting crises. Dr. Ross Allen, Dis-
trict Commissioner of the Boy
Scouts, outlinedthe workings of the
Service Corps and the part it could
play in time of emergency.
The Emergency Service Corps was
recently organized to train Boy
Scouts between the ages of 15-17 for
emergency work. Instruction in first
aid, firemanship, fingerprinting, pub-
lic health, messenger work and other
emergency jobs is offered. Meetings
are held every Saturday afternoon
for three hours in Waterman gym-
nasium. Requirements include a
physical examination, parental con-
sent, and the attainment of the rank
of First Class Scout.
Dr. Boys urges freshman boys in
the University to attend as leaders
for the second training period, which
has just begun.
Rupinski Wins
ASME Contest;
Waldemar Rupinski, '42E, was
awarded a junior membership in the
American Society of Mechanical En-
gineers yesterday when it was an-
nounced that his paper on "The Mer-
cury-Steam Cycle for Power Genera-
tion" had won first prize in the con-
test being sponsored by the student
section of the ASME.
Second prize went to Bill Koffell,
'42E, for his paper on "Condenser
Tubes for Corrosive Waters," while
l Carol Walker, '42E, was awarded
third prize for his paper, "Analysis
of Vibrations."
Speakers at the ASME meeting
were A. M. Selvey, of the Detroit
senior section of the ASME, Ted
Winkler, secretary-treasurer of the
Detroit section, and Tom Jeffords, of
the Detroit senior section, who told
of the things expected of the new
graduate in industry.
Judging the paper contest were
Prof. R. Clay Porter of the mechani-
cal engineering department, Prof. J.
E. Thornton of the engineering Eng-
lish department and F. L. Swartz of
the mechanical engineering depart-
ASME members who do not have
blanks for application for member-
ship in the senior society may obtain
them from Koffell or from Jack
Templer, '42E.

The Union was represented' unoffi-
cially at Committee of '42 meetings
by the ten junior executives who were
requested to attend but had no vote.
Other sources have previously ac-
cused the Committee of being "a
Union function."
University Gets
War Research
Thirty-one war research projects,
underwritten by the United States
government, are now under way in
University of Michigan science and
engineering laboratories, the War
Board revealed yesterday.
Secret war engineering research,
bent upon developing machines, ma-
terials and processes for America's
armed forces and war industries, is
now under the direction of leading
University faculty men.
A general idea of the nature and
scope of University war research may
be gained, War Board spokesmen
said, from the division of projects
among departments. Fourteen of the
projects are in engineering, seven in
chemistry, seven in physics, two in
public health and one in forestry.
Prof. Harlow J. Heneman, execu-
tive director of the War Board, said
that "several" other large research
projects on problems related to the
war are awaiting final approval from
If approved by Washington offi-
cials, Heneman added, these new
projects would be undertaken im-
mediately and would draw upon all
available University facilities.

Teachers and pupils in the social
studies who have been asking the
question, "What can we do to help
in the present emergency?" will find
the answer they seek in the educa-
tion school's March bulletin, to be
distributed Monday.
In an article entitled, "The Serv-
ices of the Social Studies in the
Emergency," Prof. Orlando W. Steph-
enson, head of the Department of
Social Studies in University High
School, offers some ideas to clear up
this problem.
Based upon the "vital interest the
pupils have in the progress of the
war," Professor Stephenson's sug-
gestions include the study of atlases,
maps and globes; development of
skill in the use of the various types

His All Hallows Church
During London's Raids
The Rev. Michael Coleman-who
has gained an understanding of peo-
ple at war that few others possess-

St. Andrew's Church.
One of the fast-growing list of
progressive and socially-conscious
English clergy, he is acting vicar of
the All Hallows Church in London-
a church which was blown to bits by
German bombs.
It was through his never-ending
work among the working people who
were his parishioners at the time of
the prolonged bombing of London
Sthat he obtained his deep under-
standing of the trials of the common
people during wartime.
Before he became a clergyman,
Reverend Coleman worked for four
years on the English railways and
for a time expected to make railroad-
ing his profession. He was also ad-
ministrator, from 1935 to 1938, of the
liberal Canadian organization known
as Toe H.
His talk here is under the sponsor -
ship of the British War Relief Soci-
ety. The collection will be devoted
