Engine School
To Offer New
Radio Cmurse
summer Session With Pay
To Yield Commissions
In Army,_Navy Force
'Graduates Wanted
The engineering college, in order
to satisfy Army and Navy demands
for commissioned officers in lines of
duty such as airplane detection, will
offer to Michigan graduates of the
past ten years a full-time course
during the summer semester in ultra-
high frequency radio techniques,
Dean Ivan C. Crawford announced
Members of the present senior
classes in electrical engineering are
being " trained in this field, but the
numbers of men now in training will
not be adequate to meet the present
needs. During the last week engi-
neering graduates have been can-
vassed in order to secure additional}
men to take such training this sum-
Twelve Weeks' Course
The course, Dean Crawford report-
ed, will comprise twelve weeks of full-
time work and will include a review
of circuit theory, additional basic
preparatory material, and intensive
study of ultra-high frequency tech-
niques proper. The nature of the
work is such as to be of professional
value after the war emergency has
Engineers desiring to take the
course and continue in military serv-
ice afterward will be commissioned
at once as second lieutenants in the
Army, or as ensigns in the Navy.
Upon completing the course the offi-
cers will either continue with more
advanced study or they will be as-
signed immediately to active duty.
Officers' pay will continue for the en-
tire training period. The course is
exepcted to start about June 10, 1942.
Refresher Subjects
Because many of the graduates
have not used certain techniques
since graduation, the first half of
the course will be devoted to refresher
courses to review fundamentals, Dean
Crawford said.
Base pay and allowances of second
lieutenants or of ensigns are $2565
for unmarried men and $3031 for
married men. Travel expenses will
be paid from the point at which the
appointment is made and although
there is no tuition charge, those tak-
ing the course will pay for their own
text books, student supplies, and sub-

'No Time For Comedy' To Open
Annual Dramatic Season May 1

When fiery-eyed Czechoslovakian
Francis Lederer takes his cue from
Edith Atwater in S. N. Behrman's
farcical "No Time For Comedy" on
May 11, local theatre-goers will be
getting their first glimpse of Ann Ar-
bor's 12th annual Dramatic Season.
Bringing nine headliners of stage
and screen to the Lydia Mendelssohn,
the Dramatic Season will present, in
addition to Behrman's play, "Petti-
coat Fever," "Suspect," and "Char-
ley's Aunt" in the four week period
ending June 6.
Snowdrifts in Labrador will pro-
vide a backdrop for "Petticoat Fe-
ver," featured during the second
week, starring promising young Hol-
lywoodian Michael Whalen and cin-
emactress Madge Evans, remembered
for her dramatization in "The World
We Make," given here last season.
Lauded for both motion picture
and stage performances, Florence
Reed appears during the third week
in "Suspect," a psychological murder
plot by Edward Percy and Reginald
Denham, creators of hair-raiser "La-
dies in Retirement," presented in Ann
Arbor last year.
Fourth and last of the Dramatic
Season's offerings will be the hilari-

Fratenity 'Ring Crosbys'

which have been asked to act as

have already responded favorably and
the rest are expected to respond
Also among the finalists in the
'Sing' will be Phi Kappa Psi, which
was not included in yesterday's re-

This year Miss Edith Atwater, fe-

IFC Suggests
New Program
For Fraternities
Reasons For justification
Of Existence Demanded,
Says Wingate, RBrsley
"Michigan fraternities must re-
sume the offensive," Paul D. Wingate,
'43E, secretary of the Interfraternity
Council, said yesterday when explain-
ing the new program soon to be in-
augurated by the Council.
Suggested by Dean Joseph A. Burs-
ley, the IFC program includes asking
each fraternity to discuss in house
meetings such topics as the value of;
fraternities on the Michigan campus
and what justification there is for
such organizations in war time.
Then the groups should send indi-
vidual letters to Dean Bursley enum-
erating what they believe the best
points of the fraternity system are.
Dean Bursley has promised to single
out the best points in the letters and
compose from them a thesis which
the Interfraternity Council will be
able to use as a weapon against anti-
fraternity comment.
"Recently fraternities have been
severely criticized," said Wingate, "on
such grounds as low morale, faulty
scholarship, and exorbitant expen-
ses, but the new program will defin-
itely show that such conditions are
generally non-existent. It is merely
a matter of taking the fraternities}
off the defensive and putting them on
the offensive."
Also included in the new program
is the display of flags in front of
each fraternity house. Wingate hoped
that by the end of next week every
house would have a flag to display.
At present the new IFC staff, head-
ed by John Fauver, '43, president of
the Council and a member of Phi
Kappa Psi, is considering plans for
summer rushing which are expected
to be released at the next meeting
of the house presidents. A standing
rushing committee has been appoint-
ed by Fauver and consists of Stanton
J. Miller, '43, chairman and member
of Sigma Phi, Robert A. Carr, '42,
Phi Kappa Tau, Robert L. Bliss, '42,
Alpha Delta Phi, Jack D. Gordon,
'43, Phi Epsilon Pi, and John L.
Wiese, '44, Interfraternity Council
staff member.

Seniors: The firm which furnishes
