Honors Class
Again Opened
By University
Sophomores Must Show
High Scholastic Average
To Compete For Course
May Deadline Is Set
One of the University's major edu-
cational innovations, the Honors Pro-
gram has again been opened to eli-
gible sophomores, it was announced
yesterday by Assistant Dean Lloyd S.
Students interested in the pro-
gram, which requires a B average,
must apply at Dean Woodbune's
office before May 1. Qualifying ex-
aminations will be given during the
first week of next month.
The Honors Program is now en-
tering its fourth year of trial at the
University and admits approximately
forty students to this work in lieu
of standard concentration studies.
At the end of its fifth year, the Uni-
versity will decide its continuation.
Although new junior groups have
not been announced as yet, the pro-
gram will cover three fields-science,
social science, and literature.
Present junior groups, which will
carry over into next year for seniors
include Comedy, The Transition from
Feudal Individualism to Capitalism
and the Trend toward Collectivism,
An Intensive Study of Some of the
Classical Authors, The Italian Ren-
aissance, and The Development of
Modern Social Theory in Sociology,
Cultural Anthropology, and Social
The Honors Program is extended
beyond its own five-hours credit as
students' remaining courses are
chosen around the particular subject
of their Honors Group.
Also unique in American educa-
tion, the tutorial system is an essen-
tial part of this program. The pres-
ent Board of Tutors in the junior
groups is composed of Dr. John Ar-
thos of the English department, Prof.
H. B. Calderwood of the political sci
ence department, Prof. S. D. Dodge
of the geography department, Prof.
P. A. Throop of the history depart-
ment and Prof. Mischa Titiev of the
Department of Anthropology.
Senior tutors include Prof. R. C.
Fuller of the sociology department,
Dr. Otto Graf of the German depart-
ment, and Prof. B. D. Thuma of the'
Department of Psychology.
Appointments may be made with
these tutors through Dean Wood-
burn's office, it was also announced.
Tutors Wanted: Men
Of Genius Apply Now
Congress, Independent Men's Or-
ganization, wants more tutors.
An students proficient in foreign
languages, mathematics, physics and
chemistry are asked to offer their
services by registering from 3 to 5
p.m. any afternoon Monday through
Friday at the Congress offices, Room
306 in the Union.
If desired, students competent
enough to give scholastic assistance
may charge a maximum of 35 cents
an hour for their service.
And for those who are having trou-
ble with their studies, Congress also
asks that they register at the Con-
gress offices any afternoon.
The drive for tutors has as its
aim to provide independent men with
help in their studies at reasoiable
prices. Professional tutors, Congress
feels, are above the means of the
ordinary college man.

Defense Talks
Will Be Given
I ill Auditoriumll Lecturens
Planned -By War Board,
County 1Defens Council
In an attempt to acquaint the pub-
lie with methods of self-protection
against enemy air raids and sabotage
by enemy agents, the University War
Board and the County Defense Coun
cil will sponsor a series of lectures
which will begin Monday, April 6 in
Hill Auditorium.
All residents of the county, as well
as students and faculty members, are
urged to take the course which will
be given free of charge.
Brewer To Speak
Major W. A. Brewer, of the Na-
tional Office of Civilian Defense, will{
come from Washington to speak at
the first meeting on the topic, "The
Nature and Purpose of Civilian De-#
The purpose of the course, Prof.
Glenn L. Alt explained, is to give as
many persons as possible basic know-
ledge in methods of passive defense
against air raids and in means of
dealing with active sabotage by en-
emy agents.
By means of air raids, he pointed
out, the enemy hopes to destroy or
cripple defense production, to dis-
organize communication and trans-
portation, and to break down the
morale of the civilian population.
Alt Cites Goal
"The achievement of these ob-
jectives," he said, "may be frustrated
to a large extent by anticipating
his attacks and by training and or-
ganizing civilians accordingly."
Urging attendance, Edwin J. Hun-
tington, chairman of information for
the County Defense Council warned:
"This is the time to forego peace-
time pleasures. Protection of your
home, your family and your com-
munity now comes first."
Other topics which have been ten-
tatively scheduled and the men who
will present them include: "The Air
Raid Warden and the Citizen--Mu-
tual Responsibilities," by Owen J.
Cleary, state air raid warden; "Civil-
ian Defense Organization Under Area
Bombardment," Captain Don Lean-
ard; and "Citizen's Responsibilities
to Law Enforcement Organizations,"
by John Bugas, of the Federal Bureau
of Investigation.
Dates for the latter lectures will be
announced as soon as final arrange-
ments have been completed.
-(/P}-This is no joke to the Federal
Bureau of Investigation. Someone
stole an FBI agent's automobile here
last night.

Charlie Barnet's Concert
Will Turn In Proceeds
To Scholarship Fund

Swept aside by the rising tide of
campus interest in Charlie Barnet's
swing concert here April 22, the offi-
cial 10:30 deadline for women will be
upped to 11 p.m. for this Hill Audi-
torium program, it was announced
The concert, which will give all
proceeds to the Bomber Scholarship
Fund, has already been approved by
the Student War Board with Buck
Dawson, '43, in charge of general
Every ,student on campus will have
an opportunity to purchase tickets
next week, Dawson declared. Tickets
will be offered in fraternities and
dormitories from Monday through
Thursday while a general sale will
be conducted Wednesday and Thurs-
day in the middle of the Diagonal.
Guiding hand behind the concert
is Alpha Phi Omega, national service
organization, with additional coop-
eration from the 'M' Club and the
University Musical Society.
Even Dawson was at a loss for
words yesterday to describe Charlie
Barnet's band. Barnet;, who has been
referred to as "sax sensation of the
nation," has kept his popularity
through changing fads in popular
music to ,justify the tile of "just one
In addition to his musical honors,
Barnet is also an hionorary chiieftain
of the Cherokee Indian tribe, which
awarded him a tribal bonnet for his
rendition of "Cherokee." His rec-
ords have taken juke boxes by storm,
lie has appeared in "name" ballrooms
from coast to coast, and "he's what
the campus has been needing for a
long time," a('cording to an eventu-
ally-articuiate Buck Dawson.

Ann and Terry Stevens, four-year-
old twins from Plymouth, England,
will have the girls of Jordan Hall to
thank for food and shelter and ex-
pert care during crucial 1942, year
of privation.
Taking the cue from the Stockwell
coeds, who "adopted". three English
war babies last month through the
American Save the Children Federa-
tion, collaborating with a British sis-
ter branch, Jordan girls spoke Tues-
day for the Stevens children, after
hearing a plea on behalf of SCF de-
livered by Mrs. Preston W. Slosson,
co-chairman with Mrs. Edward W.
Blakeman of the local organization.
Freshman representatives of the
house council, Marjory Hall, Sally
Smyth, Lillian Mikula, Jeanne Rob-
erts, Glen McDaniels, Dorothy Weim-
branch, Joan Birk, Harriet Fishel,
Martha Seer and Janice Fletcher,
will be in charge of the Jordan
Each of the five children was
"adopted" upon payment of $120, to
be supplemented by an equal sum
from the British government, which
provides one year in an English
country home for war orphan and
evacuee "under-fives."
The Jordan and Stockwell "adop-
tees," together with 28 other Erfglish
boys and girls, are being housed in a
typical SCF nursery, 100-year-old
Trevince, in Redruth, Cornwall,.
known as the "Ann Arbor Shelter,"
since it is supported by local con-
tributions. Trevince, with its spa-
cious grounds, recently revealed as
the ancestral home of Prof. J. Ral-
eigh Nelson, Director of International
Center, has been recommended as a
safe and wholesome retreat for these
"blitz babies." With additional funds
Trevince could support 45 children

annually, 12 more than are now
housed there.
Another adoption plan is offered
by SCF: a payment of $30 will bring
supplemental aid to an underprivi-
leged English child in his own home.
This second plan was undertaken by
Alpha Delta Pi sorority during last
year's drive.
For both adoption methods, case
histories and pictures are sent to
"godparents" of the "adoptees." Of-
ten grateful letters are received from
the children themselves.
Other campus organizations, fol-
lowing the example set by Stockwell
and Jordan, may merge to facilitate
adoption. "The larger the group, the
less the cost will be to each contrib-
utor," as Mrs. Slosson puts it.
Auden To Address
Hillel's Town Hall
At8.30 Toimorrow
Famed as a poet and author, W.
H. Auden of the English department
will discuss "Faith" at Hillel Founda-
tion's Town Hall at 8:30 p.m. tomor-
Important to the man of letters,
faith will be discussed by the audi-
ence in forum style. The recurring
ideas of faith in literary works and
their influence on social policies will
be pointed out.
World travel and eye-witness ob-
servation of wars have influenced
Mr. Auden's work. Against the ex-
press wishes of the British govern-
ment, he went to Spain during the
revolution to serve the Loyalist cause
driving an ambulance.
Traveling to China in 1938, Mr.
Auden saw the struggles of the Chi-
nese armies against the enemies of
the weak republic.
