At Rackham Auditorium
Two in a series of three illustrated
lectures by Drs. Carl and Gerty Cori
were presented in the Rackham Am-
phitheatre yesterday under the joint
- auspices of the biological chemistry
department and the Medical School.
The afternoon lecture was given by
Dr. Carl Cori, while the evening ad-
dress was given by Dr. Gerty Cori.
Dr. Carl Cori will speak again at 11
a.m. today in the Rackham Amphi-
theatre on "The Enzymatic Con-
version of Glucose to Glycogen."
The Drs. Cori are on the faculty of
Washington University Medical
School, where Dr. Carl Cori is head
of the department of pharmacology
andDr. Gerty Cori is a research as-
sociate in the same depattment.
The Coris are well known in the
United States for their studies on the
synthesis and breakdown of glycogen,
the reserve carbohydrate of the body
and the fuel for muscular exercise.
In recognition of his work, Dr. Carl
Cori was elected a member of the
National Academy of Sciences in
Both the Coris received their medi-
cal degrees in Prague, Czechoslovakia
in 1920 and came to this, country in
1922. From that date until 1931. the
Coris worked as biochemists at the
State Institute of Malignant Diseases
in Buffalo, N. Y. Since 1931, the
Coris have been associated with
Washington University.

Half Of Men Library Students
Are Called Into Armed Forces


War Creates Exceptional
Demand For Librarians
In Manufacturing Plants
The Library School, shy of men
anyway, has really been decimated
by the call of the army, for a rough
estimate shows that nearly 50 per-
cent of the men are now in the army,
or are deferred only until May.
Present figures show that 57 wo-
men and 21 men are taking courses
to equip them for public, university,
school, college and special librarian-

Coeds at the University of Indiana
got an ungentlemanly reception
Tuesday when Sycamore Hall, girls'
dormitory, had a practice air raid in
the middle of the night. It happened
around midnight when suddenly, just
as the girls were well tucked in for
the night, the air raid alarm went
off in the building. The girls headed
for the street and the building was
empty in jig time, all to the pleasure
of the wardens and disgust of the
coeds, who were met on the streets
by the boos, jeers and catcalls of the
boys in several fraternities across the
street. The sight of their supposed
beauty "queens" in pajamas, curlers
and sans makeup was more than the
boys could stand and these connoi-
seurs of people feminine gave vent
to their feelings accordingly. Where-
upon the girls got back in the build-
ing immediately, bombs or no bombs.
A Daily Northwestern survey
taken recently shows that 54% of
the student body at Northwestern
want to mee social activities of
the university and undergraduate
groups limited to the campus, two
percent favor immediate curtail-
ment of all social activities and the
rest voted to retain the status quo.
The paper said further: "Neither
can Northwestern women be ac-
cused of coed gold-digging com-
plexes, for a greater total per-'
centage of women than men be-
lieved that activities should be
somewhat curtailed."
Bill Green, three-year varsity full-
back at the University of Iowa, has
been elected squadron commander of
the "Flying Hawkeyes" squadron of
Naval flying cadets recently formed
there. Twenty-three students and
alumni of the University fill out the
squadron personnel, who will undergo
a three-month training program at
the new navy training base on the
campus and then will take flight
training in St. Louis. Following this
they will undergo their final seven
months' training at Pensacola or
Jacksonville, Fla., or Corpus Christi,
Texas, after which they will receive
their commissions and will be as-
signed to active duty with the Naval
air arm.

tional demand for persons in the li-
braries of industrial organizations
and the technology and reference de-
partments of public libraries, and this
year's graduates should be able to
secure positions much more readily
than in previous years.
One student from Peru makes up
the roll call from South America,
whose libraries are for the most part
neither large or numerous. So give
up any hope of using your Spanish
in a South American library, as only
the newly established American li-
brary in Mexico City to provide in-
formation about the United States
is calling for Americans.
America, however, has the most
modern methods in the world and
the University Department of Library
Science ranks high on the list of ac-
credited library schools. This list is
divided into three classes of schools,
and only ours along with Chicago,
California. Columbia and Illinois uni-
versities has both regular library
and graduate work requiring a pre-
vious degree.
Although only about 40 candidates
will be selected in May for the fall
semester, every effort is made to
place them after graduation. If a
student has a knowledge of French
and German with at least a 2.75 point
average and personality plus a de-
gree, an interesting and varied field
is open to him.
Sixth Aniu al Retail
Coal Inst ituite Plans
Convention In April
Plans for the Sixth Annual Retail
Coal Institute to be held here April
14 and 15, are now being organized
by the Department of Mechanical
Engineering under the chairmanship
of Professor R. S. Hawley.
Sponsored by the College of Engi-
neering and the Extension Service in
cooperation with Michigan retail
coal merchants, coal and coke sales-
men, coal producers, railroad men
and equipment manufacturers, the
two-day state conference will be lo-
cated at the Michigan Union. All
students interested may attend with-
I out paying the registration fee.
As the engineering college faculty
is occupied with the accelerated war
program, outside speakers connected
with retail coal work will present
most of the material. However, Dean
Ivan C. Crawford of the engineering
department will give the welcoming
address, and Professor Hawley, chair-
man of the mechanical engineering
department, will act as toastmaster
and discussion leader for the Stoker
Question Hour.



CHASE THAT NEVER ENDS-No matter how fast
the greyhounds run, at tracks in Miami, Fla., they never catch up
with the rabbit-a mechanical fellow who's whisked about the
track by means of this trolley arrangement. A canvas curtain
dropped across the track beyond the finish line blots out the me-
chanical bunny, and the dogs immediately lose interest in the race.
