Us'.NEEDS: Engineers -
______________ - 100,000 ii 1942

America's Armed forces and war
industries ned inimediately nearly
86,000 more engineers than will be
graduated or otherwise available this
Figures released recently by the
National Roster of Scientific and
Technical Personnel point out that
while the nation's colleges and uni-
versities will graduate between 13,000
and 16,000 engineering students this
year, there is an immediate call for
100,000 trained engineers.
Testifying to the acuteness of the
shortage, Dean Ivan C. Crawford
declared that the College of Engin-
eering has had three or four calls
for every student who is scheduled
to graduate this year.
One department alone, he said,
has been visited by the personnel
officers of 75 different firms in their
search for men. So great is the need
for persons with any amount of en-
gineering training, that some organ-
izations are even going through the
lists of men who have failed in their
Approximately 400 engineers will
be graduated this year from the Uni-
versity and there are another 1,700
in training.
The one wartime concern of the
University's engineering school, Dean

Crawford asserted, is to turn out as
many engineers as possible in as
short a time as possible so that they
can take their places with the armed
forces and war industries.
As the college will offer a full pro-
gram in the summer term, every en-
gineering student will be able to take
full advantage of the University's ac-
celerated war program. It will thus
be possible for students to complete
their training in less than one-third
the time required under the old pro-
Engineers are needed wherever
one finds power development and
utilization, communication, trans-
portation or manufacturing, Dean
Crawford declared, pointing out that
today's mechanized warfare has
greatly increased the importance of
these fields.
He also emphasized the need for
trained engineers in every branch
of the armed services as well as in in-
dustry. Perhaps the most immediate
need, he said, is for engineers who
have specialized in communications-
particularly radio.
Dean Crawford asserted that for
students seeking a field of concen-
tration engineering offers very un-
usual opportunities not only for per-
sonal advancement, but also for serv-
ice to the nation.

Foreign Group

Dajice Profits
International Ball Receipts
To Give Aid To Students
From War-Torn Lands
(Editor's Note: This is the third in
a series of articles illustrating the
benefits derived from the Emergency
Fund for Foreign Students.)
Students who attend the Interna-
tional Ball Friday in the Union Ball-
room will be spending their money
for a worthy cause, for the receipts
from this dance will be donated to
the Emergency Fund for Foreign
The Fund recently aided a foreign
student sent here on a fellowship
paid by his government to become
started on his career. He had proven
himself a capable student in his field
and became an active member of the
International group.
Suddenly, because of a revolution
in his home country, he found him-
self not only unable to return home
to complete his schooling but also
cut off completely from the govern-
ment funds. Because of his excellent
record one of the New York founda-
tions agreed to furnish the amount
of his fellowship for the next sem-
ester but could do nothing for him
for the remainder of the current
The Emergency Fund obtained a
part-time job for him, but this was
insufficient for his total expenses.
The remainder was secured from the
Fund to cover his expenses for the
Hewas graduated, and after bor-
rowing money to rent his office and
become started in private practice,
he sent a check for the payment to
the Emergency Fund, At the same
time, however, he was notified that
his final citizenship papers had been
withheld temporarily pending an in-
The Fund was able to support him
in the investigation and wired back
his check. Later, when his papers
had been granted and his practice
resumed, he wasable to pay his debt
in full.

Questions On War Bond Buying
A're Ansiwered For U5 Workers

For the convenience of the Univer-
sity of Michigan's 5,000 employes,
many of whom are desirous of pur-
chasing War Bonds through system-,
atic Payroll deductions, The Daily
has secured a question-and-answer
interview with Mr. Gordon Griffith
of the investment office.
Prof. C. L. Jamison, chairman of
the University Committee on War
Bonds and Stamps, and Griffith are
pushing the wholesale adoption of the
payroll savings plan for University
employes-from janitors to full pro-
Here are the answers to some of
the questions Mr. Griffith has been
getting over the telephone the last
few days.
Q. How can I use the payroll sav-
ings purchase plan?
A. If you want to allocate portions
of your salary to buy War Bonds se-
cure an allocation blank from the
Cashier's Office, the Office of the
Superintendent of Buildings and
Grounds, or at the business office of
the University Hospital.
Q. How much will be deducted from
my salary each month?
A. Deductions are $3.75 a month
or multiples thereof. With the mini-
mum allocation you will receive in
five months a bond (cost $18.75)
which will appreciate to $25 in 10
Q. What kind of bonds will I get?
A. U.S. Government Series "E" war
bonds which are the "best-buy" bond
for individuals. They come in de-
nominations of $25. $50, $100, $500,
and $1,000.

Union Pool is open for women stu-
dents on Tuesday and Thursday eve-
nings from 7:30 to 9:30.
Badminton-Women and Men Stu-

Episcopal Students: There will be

Breakfast will be served after the
Avukah meeting on Wednesday,
April 15, at 8:00 p.m. at the Hillel
Foundation. Continuation of discus-
sion on Zionism, group singing, and
dancing. Bring full V-graphs.

Q. Is this a goi aiveimict?
A. Thii is lthe muost scientifi in-
strunient of investment for the small
investor that has ever been designed.
It yields a 2.90 per cent return at
maturity which compares very fav-
orably with any other investments
open to the public today.
Q. Can I draw this in my son's
name to insure his college education?
A. Yes. The Series "E'" bond may
be registered in the name of one
individual, or of two individuals as
co-owners, or in the name of one
individual with another person desig-
nated as the beneficiary.
Q. What if I find I must have the
money before maturity date?
A. Any time after 60 days from
the date of issue the bond may be
redeemed at an increasing dollar
value in relation to the length of time
the bond is held.
Q. What if my little son, for whom
I have bought the bond, decides to
burn it up?
A. These bonds are non-negotiable
and registered. A lost bond can al-
ways be replaced. The protection of
a safety-deposit box is not necessar-
ily required, but upon the holders'
request the U.S. Treasury will ar-
range safe-keeping facilities.
