Deadline Set
For Hopwood
Entries Are Due April 13;
$10,000 To Be Shared
By Best Student Writers
Students planning to compete for
nearly $10,000 in prize money in the
forthcoming Hopwood literary con-
test, must present their manuscripts
by 4:30 p.m. April 13, in Room 3221
Angell Hall.
The Hopwood contest, eleven years
on the campus, originated when play-
wright Avery Hopwood, '05, willed
one-fifth of his estate to the Regents
of the University in 1922, the income
from which to be distributed annu-
ally "for the encouraging of creative
work in writing."
The first competition was held in,
1931, after the bequest had been di-
vided into two parts, known as the
major awards (open to senior and
graduate students) and the minor
awards (open to undergraduates) re-
Only students regularly enrolled in
the University, taking at least one
composition course in the English or'
journalism departments, and rating
"C" or better in each of their sub-
jects are eligible to enter the fiction,
drama, poetry and essay divisions of
the Hopwood.
This is the same contest which
boosted into the literary limelight
Mildred Walker ("Fireweed," "Dr.
Norton's Wife," "The Brewers' Big
Horses"); Iola Fuller ("The Loon
Feather"); Vivian La Jeunesse Par-
sons ("Lucien"); and Maritta Wolff
("Whistle Stop").
Technical instructions on the prep-
aration of manuscripts and important
suggestions for the contest may be
found in the Hopwood pamphlet,
available in Room 3221 Angell Hall.
Lindbergh Starts
Willow Run Job
DETROIT, April 3.-(/I)-Charles
A. Lindbergh reported for duty at the
Ford Motor Co.'s new bomber plant
at Willow Run today.
Like all other war plant workers
in the Detroit area, the famous flier
wore in his lapel a badge bearing
his picture.
Lindbergh, long a personal friend,
of Henry Ford, will engage in aero-
nautic and engineering research. He
will work with Charles E. Sorenson,
general manager of the company.
"I want to contribute as effectively
as I can to the war effort," Lindbergh
said. "Now that we are in the war it
is everybody's duty to do what he
can to help."

State lEmploye
Scarcity -Grave
Owfing ToWa
LANSiNG, April 3,-(/P)-Thomas
J. Wilson, State Personnel Director,
reported today that the Civil Service
Department is confronted by an im-
mediate shortage of state employes
and doesn't know what to do about it.
He said he was considering several
plans to present to the Civil Service
Commission to offset the steady loss
of workers. attracted either by the
armed forces or by higher wages in
war industries.
"The trouble is," he declared, "a
plan that looks good today, is old to-
morrow. Last July we boosted wages
for attendant nurses in our hospitals
and some people thought we were too
high. Now we are losing nurses.
They are getting war plant jobs at,
$50 a month more than we havel
been paying."
Losses are being felt most keenly'
in the state hospitals and prisons,
Wilson said, referring to a report by
Charles F. Wagg, secretary of the
State Hospital Commission, that 83
"key" employes resigned during,
March at Ypsilanti State Hospital,
most of them skilled trades workers.

The program of the Post-War Con-

follows: Friday, April 17, a general
session at which speakers of national
fame will speak and answer student
questions; Saturday, April 18, four

Several suggestions were also
brought forth at the meeting in re-
gard to the problem of continuing

Professor Pollock recommended
that regular weekly meetings in the
form of coffee hours be scheduled.

the University at war-which ap-
pears in the Weekly Calendar re-
leased today-brings together for the
first time the essential facts of Mich-
igan's contribution to victory.

difficult to give exact statistics of

should be regarded as illustrative
examples rather than definitive data.

gram. Commencement this year
moved from June 20 to May 30, with
omission of the spring recess. Three-
