SMDT Will Inaugurate
New Series Of Courses

Brooklyn Bulls Lead Police On Long, Merey Chase

Many Scholarships'Are Offered
To Students Of Literary College

Mute testimony of the success of
other similar courses offered during
the past year, a new series of 34
courses under the Engineering, Sci-
ence and Management Defense
Training program. will get under way
here and in surrounding cities the
week of April 13.
Presenting only two courses in the
last program, begun early in Janu-
ary and concluded earlier this month,
Ann Arbor will expand its share of
the program to three courses this
time, repeating only a course in
mechanical drawing under Prof.

emergency. The plan, the President
said, is recommended on the basis of
continuing to the fullest extent the
regular University channels of ad-
ministration under the three-term
"It would be folly," Dr. Ruthven
asserted, "to allow or to encourage
the dissipation and loss of staff per-
sonnel. The plan recognizes the
necessity of retaining the University's
permanent staff members."
Pledging "all-out" effort to win the
war, President Ruthven reported to
the Regents:
'Win The War' Is Aim
. . . Now and for the duration, the
University is planning and acting
with every ounce of energy to help
win the war. All other objectives are
laid aside . . . The Army and Navy
. . . are in dire need of trained men
of many kinds. We shall furnish these
men as well trained and as rapidly
as we possibly can.
"Moreover the country needs the
University's research facilities in'
chemistry, physics, engineering, medi-
cine and other lines. It needs many
other special facilities. We shall fur-
nish them to the best of our ability
with but a single thought in view,'
to do our best to preserve the nation'
and the institutions we prize .
Until peace arrives, no effort will be
too great, no sacrifice too severe, to
deter us from serving that end."
6,000 Summer Students Expected
. Basing his figures upon War Board'
estimates and questionnaires, Presi-
dent Ruthven estimated in his report
that summer term and summer ses-
sion enrollment may reach 6,000. The
returns of the queries indicate that
2,500 students will remain for the
long summer term; 400 freshmen will'
enroll and that 2,500 can be expected
for the regular eight-weeks summer1
selsion. Flexibility in enrollment is3
expected from the 2,000 students who
expressed uncertainty as to summer
term enrollment. Ruthven referred
to the probable enrollment as "a'
substantial studentbody." n,
"There can be no question," Dr.i
Ruthven said, "that the University
desires to devote its facilities in the
most effective way to aid the national<
government in its war program, to
train students to participate efficient-
ly in the tasks of state and national
defense, and to permit students to"
accelerate their college programs so
that they may better adjust them-
selves to the war emergency de-
Colonel Miller Analyzes
War Progress For Club
Analyzing war progress and de-
fense production, Col. H. W. Miller
of the engineering drawing depart-
ment spoke yesterday before the
Power Club of the Detroit Edison
Company at its monthly meeting.I
Although he presented an optim-
istic view of the European scene and1
Russia's recent successes, ColonelĀ£
Miller stated that by next summer1
the American people will have wit-
nessed so much of the unbelievable
brutalities .of war that any complac-
ency and passive gloom will be dis-

Maurice Eichelberger of the engi-
neering drawing department.
New courses to be offered here will
be in advanced machine drafting,
under Professor Eichelberger, and
product supervision under R. W.
Berkeley, an industrial engineer. A
course in descriptive geometry will
be dropped which was taught by
Prof. J. C. Palmer of the engineering
drawing department.
Presenting the majority of the
courses to be offered on this series,
Detroit will sponsor a total of 25
courses, 15 of which will be taught
by University faculty men.
Other cities which are to be repre-
sented in this series are Flint, Grand
Rapids, Dearborn and Jackson.
Ecorse and Royal Oak, listed in the
winter series, have been dropped,
while Grand Rapids is a new addi-
tion to the list.
Faculty Will Assist
University faculty men assisting
in the instruction of the Detroit
courses will be Prof. Glenn L. Alt,
Prof. W. J. Emmons, and Prof. L. C.
Maugh of the civil engineering de-
partment; Prof. F. N. Calhoon, Prof
H. E. Keeler, and Prof. E. T. Vincent
of the mechanical engineering de-
Prof. Norman R. Maier of the psy-
chology department; , Prof. Lars

Churchill of the mathematics de-
Other faculty men who will handle
courses in other cities are Prof. R. L.
Morrison of the transportation engi-
neering department, Dearborn; Prof.
F. L. Schwartz of the mechanical
engineering department, Flint.
Courses Last Eight Weeks
All courses will last eight weeks,
with the exception of a course in
industrial safety engineering to be
given in Jackson, scheduled to last
16 weeks.
Instruction in the courses is given
two nights a week, two hours per
night. All courses will get under way
Monday, April 13, or Tuesday, April
14, with the exception of Professor
Alt's course in aerial bombardment
protection, which is scheduled to
open Thursday of that week.
Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the engi-
neering college is the University's
administrator for the program, spon-
sored by the U. S. Office of Educa-
tion. Prof. R. H. Sherlock of the
civil engineering department is do-

Hospital Annoutnces
For Receptionists
In a move aimed at bolstering a
draft-depleted University Hospital
staff, the Civilian Defense Volunteer
Office has announced a new drive
to register volunteers for work as
receptionists and clinic attendants.'
This work, which does not require
any special training, is open to women
under 40, who can spend four hours
a morning at the hospital. The CDVO
will register volunteers at its Armory
Further CDVO activity has placed
air raid wardens in charge of sectors'
of Ann Arbor. Each sector contains
about 500 people, with hospitals, fac-
tories and large apartments set up
as sectors by themselves.

Training May Include

women In Scheduled Spring Course


The enrollment of women in the
fourth section of the Engineering,
Science and Management Defense
Training Course in ordnance mate-
rials inspection scheduled to open
here late in April appears to be more
than just a possibility, Col. H. W.
Miller of the engineering drawing de-
partment revealed yesterday, even as
final plans were being laid for the
opening of the third section here
Women May Be Accepted
"We have already received word
that women will probably be accepted
in the course provided they meet the
other requirements," Colonel Miller,
University administrator of the
course, said, "and with the trouble
there has been in getting enough
trainees, it seems more than likely
that the plan will go through."
Simultaneously, A. B. Bishop, ord-
nance department representative,
disclosed that present enrollment re-
quirements for the course are in the
process of modification, and that

tics or outside interests," Professor
Thuma asserted.
The large number of seniors on
the present board has been planned
so that outgoing members of campus
organizations will be able to devote
their full time to war co-ordination
while newly appointed juniors take
over their original duties.
Outlining probable activities of the
new body, Professor Thuma pointed
out that while the board will make
suggestions, it is in no sense a legis-
lative group. War projects coming
from individuals or organizations may{
be referred to it for channeling into
the most efficient administrative or-
gans avatilable.
The Sudent War Board will also
act as an "open ear" to any com-
plaints on campus war activities. "It
is only by finding out past difficul-
ties that future remedies can be of-
fered," Professor Thuma declared.
In answering certain criticisms of
the methods used in nominating the
new board, Professor Thuma asked
the rhetorical question, "What can't
the students do now that they could
rdo with a committee picked in any
other~ wuya

lower requirements would probably
soon make men eligible who have
previously been unable to qualify.
Present regulations stipulate that
the applicant have completed one
year in an accredited engineering
college, or two years in a literary col-
lege with six hours of credit in each
of the fields of mathematics, physics
and chemistry.
Local authorities of the course,
basing their judgment on their know-
ledge of the ground covered by the
course, have recommended that this
scholastic requirement be changed to
"One year of resident study at a
college or university of recognized
standing, providing the applicant has
completed one year of high school
Art Exhibition
Popular demand for a time-exten-
sion on the run of the Ann Arbor Art
Association's latest show, "An Intro-
duction to Architecture," finally pro-
duced results when Prof. W. J. Gores
of the College of Architecture and
Design announced yesterday that the
elaborate exhibition will be held over
until April 4.
Also, in addition to this display,
which has easily proved itself the
most popular one yet produced by
the Association, Professor Gores
pointed out that from 8 to 10 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday Richard
Lippold, instructor in design in the
architecture ollege, will present two
evenings of authentic recordings of
the music of the different architec-
tural periods.
In these records, Professor Gores
emphasized, the instruments and the
compositions sound exactly as they
did in ;the past. Mr. Lippold will also
give informal talks in connection
with the music starting at 8 p.m. each
U Um

physics, high school algebra and trig-
onometry, and one year of high
school chemistry, or four semester
hours of chemistry in college."
It is not expected that the revised
requirements will actually be that
low, Mr. Bishop emphasized, but
changes are in the making and in-
terested persons whose requirements
fall anywhere near the original spec-
ifications are advised to submit ap-
Age Range Is 18 To 55
The age range for the 12-week
course is from 18 to 55, and during
the period of instruction the train-
ees are paid a regular salary of $120
monthly. Upon completion of the
course the men take inspection posi-
tions with the Detroit Ordnance Dis-
Approximately 75 men will open
the third section of the course Mon-
day according to the Detroit office,
Mr. Bishop said. Still in progress are
the first two sections started in mid-
January and early March respec-
First Graduates Go To Detroit
The first graduates of the program,
members of the first section, will
complete their training April 17, and
will be immediately absorbed by the
Detroit Ordnance District, as there
is a crying need for ordnance inspec-
tors in war-swollen industries.
Because of the difficulty in finding
applicants who can fill present qual-
ifications, the University course is
one of the few in the country which
is actually a complete success, Col-
onel Miller declared.
Present plans call for the opening
of the fourth section on or about
April 27, while a fifth section is ten-
tatively scheduled for May 18.

Some of the 10 bulls which escaped from a truck in the heart of Brooklyn, New York City, are caught
after scampering through streets and alleys, with police and volunteers in pursuit.

I Warn Michigan Wolves
Freshmen beware-the high. school
boys are out for blood because you are
dating their girls. They claim that
the girls get so snooty after they go
out with the frosh that they won't
date the high school crowd any more.
This angry group called. up The

the ropes too-and besides they have
cars. If this practice is not stopped
they threaten rebuttal by dating
those "queens" of the freshman class,
so you had better watch your step.
