When Olga Gruhzit, '43, of Grosse
Pointe, takes over next October as
the first woman editor-in-chief in

for the improvement of that publi-
Miss Gruhzit has worked out a
new system for staff organization, in
which tryouts for the Gargoyle will
receive training in all phases of the
magazine through talks by staff
members and frequent meetings.
Although the traditional features
of the Garg will he retained, the pol-

fair distribution of space among or-
ganizations, and an increase in the
general quality of the magazines

'C o>let r,,In Turke>y
T (ins Its fStd(fs(,
For DenIocI'a'cy
An American college in Istanbul,
Turkey, is "training Turkish stu-
dents in democracy" and is aiding
in cementing relations between the
United States and Turkey according
to Sabahattin Sungur, Grad., a for-
mer resident of Istanbul.
A graduate of Roberts College, him-
self, Sungur is now studying here at
the University. He is one of the
many Roberts College students who
come to the United States after they
have completed their studies in Is-
Many of the teachers at the college
are Americans. The students are
mostly Turkish but many come from
the other Balkan countries. The col-
lege plays an important role in Turk-
ish politics, its graduates holding
high government posts.
Sungur credits the program of ex-
tra-curricular activities at Roberts
College with responsibility for the
training in democracy. Students
govern themselves and learn the pro-
cesses of democracy in the meantime,
1w says.
Roberts College was established
some 70 years ago by an American
missionary. It gradually became a

University Fresh Air Camp Tag
Day will be held on campus and in
downtown Ann Arbor Friday, with
war-time exigencies as an added in-
centive to the drive towards a $1,500
* The Fresh Air Camp is considered
by some as belonging to the "non-
essential" class of activities during
the war emergency, according to Prof.
F. N. Menefee, of the civil engi-
neering department, director of the
camp. Refuting this belief, Professor
Menefee cites a survey on child crime
in Britain since the outbreak of the
war as evidence that such agencies
as the Fresh Air Camp have assumed
increasing importance with America's
entry into the conflict.
The British survey shows a 41 per
cent increase in the offenses com-
mitted by children under 14 and is
attributed to dislocation of home life,
absence of fathers and mothers in
the fighting services and war work
and the interruption of schooling by
evacuation. The same pattern of
events, according to Professor Men-
efee, is taking place in this country.
Each year the Fresh Air Camp
takes 300 maladjusted boys away
from cities in southeastern Michigan
and gives them a four weeks' vaca-
tion. At the camp, located on Pat-
terson Lake in Livingston County,
a trained counseling staff formulates
plans of treatment.

ination in Defense."
