Dental School
Leaves Today
On Feld Tr*
Entire Group To Observe
Work At W. K. Kellogg
County Health Projects
:Seniors in the School of Dentistry
will leave on a week's trip of field
practice and observation 'to W. K.
Kellogg Foundation's seven county
Community Health Project today.
Starting with a trip through the
W. K. Kellogg Foundation at Battle
Creek, the remainder of the week
will be spent in observation of the
actual work in the Community
Health Project, with the last two
days spent in working with dentists.
The extensive project, endowed by
the Kellogg Foundation, as is the
fund for the trip, is an experimental
project in modern practice of public
heal measures. It includes the coun-
ties of Van Buren, Hillsdale, Allegan,
Eaton, Barry, Calhoun and Branch.
The work in the project itself
which will be observed by the dental
students includes every facet of the
new field in medicine. Besides the
usual program of school education,
adult health education i4 included.
In the observation side-trips, the
students will accompany county
health authorities on their calls and
work with them in central offices.
Some time will be spent in the schools
to acquaint the students with the
modern techniques of health educa-
Work in the offices of community
dentists will comprise the program of
the last two days of the week. An ef-
fort will be made to show the meth-
ods of cooperation with community
In the latter part of the program
the dentists-to-be will do the work
of the community dentists as far as
possible. Realization of the dentists'
place and importance in community
life is expected to result from this
portion of the trip.
The community clinics in the pro-
ject will be visited. Calls on patients
will be made with visiting nurses and
doctors working in the project area.
The trip is an annual event entirely
financed by the W. K. Kellogg Foun-
dation with all expenses paid for the
1--3-5-7-9 P.M.

ates, while the offerings during the
short Summer Session will be largely
for graduate students.
As in other fields, the accelerated
program will shorten by approxi-
mately one-third the time necessary
for students to obtain degrees.
Chemical societies, educators, in-
dustrialists and government agencies
are all greatly concerned over the
present shortage. Two major recom-
mendations which seem to have a
majority of adherents are:
1. Students throughout the coun-
try should consider more carefully
the advantages of chemistry as a
vocation-both from the individual's
point of view and the nation's. I
2. Chemists and chemical engi-
neers should not enlist -in the armed
forces, but should stay in the pro-
duction army.
The latter point is being particu-
larly stressed. The American Chemi-
cal Society emphasizes that "if you
are a qualified chemist or chemical
engineer, your duty to America is
in the production army not in the
comba forces."
The society supports its position by
pointing out that chemists in the
Army are assigned to be stretcher
bearers, pharmacists' clerks and clin-
ical technicians in the Medical Corps.
Their special training is thus lost
to the nation.
The Society, therefore, recom-
mends that the Army release all the
students in ROTC or the Naval Re-
serve and allow them to spend more
time studying chemistry and the
courses which are essential for chem-
ists. The latter courses include math-
Ovait Elected Head
Of Ordnance Group,
David Ovaitt, '43E, became the new
president of the University Post, of
the Army Ordnance Association yes-
terday following the resignation of
president Larry A. Shipman, '42E,
who was elected at a meeting held
several weeks ago.
Intending to remain in school at
the time of his election, Shipman
later decided that he would enter
active service in the Ordnance De-
partment of the Army in June, and
tendered his eslgnation as president
of the University post.
Other officers of the Association,
elected several weeks ago, are Philip
Sharpe, '42E, vice-president; Howard
Strauss, '43E, recording secretary-
treasurer, and Charles Thatcher,
'43E, corresponding secretary.

ematics, physics and-on the grad-
uate level-foreign languages.
The materialsnecessary to victory
-magnesium, aluminum, transpar-
ent platics, rubber, explosives, medic-
inals, etc.-cannot be produced with-
out the supervision of thousands of
trained chemists and chemical engi-
neers. If such men are not available,
it may well mean the difference be-
tween victory and defeat. And at
the present time no one seems to
know where the necessary number
are going to come from.
SSix Engneer
Council Posts
Will Be Filled
Six engineering college students
will become members of the Engi-
neering Council Wednesday when
freshman, sophomore and junior en-
gineers each elect two representatives
to that body in general class elections.
A slate of four juniors, six sopho-
mores and five freshman candidates
has been drawn up as a result of pe-
titions submitted Friday, and pic-
tures of these candidates will be
posted Tuesday on the Engineering
Council Bulletin Board, in the second
floor corridor of the West Engineer-
ing Building.
Emphasizing the importance of ob-
serving the campaign regulations,
Bob Sforzini, '43E, election director,
reminded that no campaigning will
be permitted near the ballot boxes,
and that no campaign literature may
be posted in any campus building.
Sophomores and juniors will cast
their votes at ballot boxes to be lo-
cated over the Engineering Arch and
in the lobby of the East Engineering
Building, while freshmen will vote in
their regular class assemblies on the
same day, Sforzini said.
The winning freshman will be elec-
ted for a three-year term, the win-f
ning sophomore for two years, and
the junior winner as well as runners-
up from all three classes will be
elected to one-year posts.
Candidates are: Fred Betzhold,
Dick Schoel, Harry Altman and Bob
Mott, juniors; Harry Scott, Karl
Reed, Bud Burgess, Jack Brown, Al-
lan Gardner and Buck Covoney,
sophomores; and Don Hafer, David
Upton, Walter Bauer, Warren
Schwayder, Robert Williams.on and
Stephen Selby, freshmen.

April Technic
Reflects War
Editors Combat Shortage
Of Articles By Faculty,
Engineers, Busy In War
The first issue to really feel the
effects of war as well as the first to
be put out by the new staff, the
April issue of The Michigan Tech-
nic, engineering college publication,
will go on sale Thursday and Fri-
day. .
Predictions of retiring editors Burr
J. French, '42E, and John S. Burn-
ham, '42E, that difficulties would be
encountered in securing articles from
faculty and industrial men are borne
out in this issue, Editor-in-Chief Bill
Hutcherson, '43E, revealed, as all
three articles this month will be stu-
Usually containing one article by
an industrial engineer, one by a
faculty member and one by a student,
The Technic this month discovered
that both 'industrial men and faculty
members are tied up in defense work
of various kinds, and just do not
have tho time necessary to prepare
The student-submitted articles will
partially make up for the deficit,
however, as three such stories will be
featured this month: "Petroleum
Products Production" by Paul S. Ken-
nedy. '44E; "Tau Beta Pi at Michi-
gan" by Arthur W. C. Dobson, '42E,
and "Aluminum Shortage" by Blaine
Newman, '43E.
Continuing the precedent set by
Technic editors in the past, the Tech-
nic will also have its regular feature
departments, and will "present" re-
tiring Managing Editor Burnham,
Joe Hallissy, '42E, and Prof. Axel
Marin of the mechanical engineer-
ing department this month.
In "The Technic Rambles" will be
presented an interview with Sergt.
R. J. Hopkins of the military science
department, while the editorial will
be Hutcherson's "School Spirit."
Business Manager Freeman Alex-
ander, '43E, is the other member of
the present Technic senior staff.
