New State-Wide
Defense Series
To Open Today
Alt, Morrison To Instruct
Transportation Control,
Bond) Protection Class
25 Courses Planned
Two courses in the new engineering
science and management defense
series, which is being inaugurated
this week in industrial centers
throughout the state, will meet to-
day for the first .time.
Professor Glenn L. Alt, of the civil
engineering department, will direct a
class in aerial bombardment protec-
tion at the Raekham Memorial Build-
ing in Detroit. Having recently at-
tended a national conference on
bombardment protection in New York
City, he has designed the course to
arcquaint practicing engineers and
architects with new methods which
he learned there.
A course in traffic control will be
directed by Professor Roger L. Morri-
son of the transportation depart-
ment, who has done extensive re-
search work on special traffic prob-
lems in congested defense areas, and
blackout traffic problems. Traffic
control classes will be held in the
municipal court building at Dear-
tk orn.
Although the new defense program
has been planned in general for engi-
neers with at least two years of col-
lege training or its equivalent in
practical experience, eligibility is to
be determined by the individual in-
structors who may waive the require-
ments in special cases.
A total of 25 courses is being
opened in this, which is the third'
defense series of the year. Fifteen
of the courses are to be directed by
members of the University engineer-
ing college faculty.
Courses have been opened in De-
troit, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids,
Flint, Jackson and Dearborn.
Having had only two in the second
defense series, Ann Arbor will ex-
pand its share of the courses -this
term to three. Classes in Production
Supervision, Mechanical Drawing
and Advanced Machine Drafting will
be held here.
Malta Receives Award
LONDON, April 16. - (41) -- The

tory that such a decoration had been
conferred on a part of the empire.

will not weaken, but will endure until
the victory is won."

'Hillelzapoppin', Eight Act Show
Will Be Given By Student Group

Foremen's Clubs
To Hold Annual

Honors Program Is Now Open
To Sophomores With B Record

Action, comedy, drama, satire will
compose eight acts in "Hillelzapop-
pin'," Hillel Foundation's stunt show
to open at 8:00 p.m., April 24, at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
On the more serious side of the
program will be the funds to be do-
nated to the Bomber Scholarship
Fund and other war relief agencies.
Total gate receipts will be given to
the funds..
h eplacing the traditional major
production by the Hillel Players,
"Hillelzapoppin' " will enable the
Foundation to aid directly in war ac-
tivities. The Players continue work
in direction of the stunt show.
The acts, eight in all, are in in-
tense rehearsal. They will be pre-
sented by fraternities, sororities and
a League house.
The hilarious 'Hellzapoppin' " spir-

it will be represented by Kappa Nu's
raffle. Alpha Epsilon Phi will give
a blackface act.
Sigma Alpha Nu will bring back
the old days with a minstrel show
while Phi Sigma Delta and the
League house will present skits.
The war aid theme will extend even
to the acts. Pi Lambda Phi will run
a double or nothing quiz show for
Defense Savings Stamps.
Phi Sigma Sigma will follow the
travels of a lost fraternity pin. Zeta
Beta Tau will have a variety show.
Masters of ceremonies will be Hal
Cooper, '43, and Woody Block, '42.
Their job will be to make the air
crackle with witticisms.
Between the acts various well-
known but now secret persons will
entertain. Their identities will be
announced at a later date.

The course has been optional andj
so far, although successful, has been
limited to a small number of stu-

The seminar meets weekly and such
topics as outdoor pests, sunburn,
woodcraft and irritating animals andI
plants are discussed.
Although the course is not pri-
marily to equip the students for the

Graham, it will undoubtedly be of
advantage to those who plan to enter
the armed forces.

Dr. Sanchez is the recipient of

Work in the Honors Program is
done in groups of three to five stu-
dents under the guidance of faculty
tutor. This tutorial system -an al-
most total stranger to American edu-
cation - stresses the individual stu-
dent's development over the usual
"mass treatment."
The present program consists of
three senior and five junior groups,
the latter to be continued during the
next academic year. Approximate-
ly 40 students are enrolled in the en-
tire program.
Illustrating the type of work done
and predagogical system employed
in ,this program, the group under
Prof. Burton D. Thuma of the psy-
chology department is analyzing mor-
al theories of antiquity and today.
The group's reading started with
such authors as Aristotle and Lucre-
tius, according to Professor Thuma,
and has been carried through the
medieval Thomas Aquinas and mod-
ern writers including Bentham and
John Stuart. A constant stress has
been placed on the application of
these writings both td modern prob-
lems and to the individual student's
ethical views.
"One of the main aims of this
group is to get students to determine
their own moral views and to analyze
