First Company Honored
In Navy Day Review;
500 See Cerenmony
Assembled before 500 spectators
last night at Palmer Field, the black
and white ranks of the Naval ROTC
battalion watched Mrs. Alexander G.
Ruthven present the colors to the
First Company, selected as the color
company for the coming year. The
ceremony took place as part of the
battalion's observance of Navy Pay.
Mrs. Ruthven, carrying a large bou-
quet of yellow roses and attended by
Capt. R. E. Cassidy, head of the
naval science department, gave the
colors to Lieut. B. H. Crawford, '44,
company commander. Awards were
also made to the outstanding pla-
toon, First Platoon of the First Com-
pany, commanded by Cadet Lieut.
E. G. O'Brien, .'44E, and the out-
standing squad, the First Squad of
the First Platoon, Third Company,
led by Fourth Petty Offider R. M.
Presentation of the awards was
followed by a parade of the color
company and the entire unit, which
passed in review before a group head-
ed by President Ruthven. Pacing to
the martial airs of the battalion's
Drum and Bugle Corps, the marchers
were viewed also by Captain Cassidy,
Lieut.-Col. G. B. Egger of the ROTC,
and Dean and Mrs. A. H. Lovell,
besides other naval and army offi-
cers and members of the University
War Board, of which Dean Lovell is
The units of the battalion receiving
the awards have been selected in a
year-long competition based on at-
tendance, excellence of drill and
scholarship, sailing, proficiency, in
the use of small arms, and speed in
loading the unit's four-inch gun. The
ceremony this year is the first of
what is to be an annual series of

Not exactly a thrmw-back to can-

members labor under the ordeal of

department speaking on the topic,

Officers of the local chapter. very

have announced that several of the
most intricate and ingenious devices
have been devised by the stump
speakers to keep all faculty speeches
under the time limit. Bob Tink. '45E.I

a "Tung Oil" banquet instead of aI
"tongue oil" one, only a minimum
of the latter'being tolerated.
Named for Dean Emeritus Morti-
mer E. Cooley, the cane is annually
given to the society's most outstand-
ing junior. A prized award, it is the
last relic of a former day when
pranksters tore up the anti-bovine
fence and carried the pickets into
Dean Cooley's class the next day.
Dubbed "Cooley Canes" by the stu-
dents, the pickets were used by the
genial dean as canes for several

hilarity at the banquet which culmi-

convention at Toledo. Speakers were

No newcomer to the Ann Arbor
stage, Reid has appeared here in
"Henry IV," "Man and Superman,"
and "Ice Bound," when the Cleveland
Players used to bring three and four

gan Repertory Company, organized
by faculty member O. J. Campbell,
Reid played locally as well as in

CARL BENTON REID)
The Army and Navy are in urgent1
need of doctors and, as in the case
of other highly technical personnel,
demands greatly exceed the supply,
at present available.
The Army requires six and a half
doctors for every one thousand men;
thus it will need the services of
45,000 doctors for a contemplated
military force of 7,500,000. At pres-
ent the Army has 14,000 doctors,
leaving 31,000 more to be procured
as full force is achieved,
The Navy is also greatly in need
of medical men. Navy officials esti-
mate their requirements as six doc-
tors per thousand men, or 3,000 for
a contemplated force of 500,000.
At present there are 62,000 medi-
cal practitioners in the entire United
States between the medical draft
ages of 27 and 45. As this reservoir
cannot be extensively tapped without
seriously impairing civilian medical
service, the demands of the military
must largely be met by speeding the
flow of new doctors directly into the
armed forces and into positions va-
cated by civilian practitioners called
for war service.
Realizing the seriousness of the
problem, medical schools throughout
the country are accelerating their
curricula. Under normal conditions,
medical schools graduate 20,000 doc-
tors in a four-year period. By elim-
inating vacations and thus reducing

"The University of Michigan Medi-
cal School is doing everything in its
power to aid the nation's war effort,"
according to Dean Albert C. Fursten-
berg. "Naturally, our greatest con-
tribution will be in the thorough and
rapid training of doctors to fill the
urgent needs of the Army and Navy.
To do this job, maintaining medical
education on a high standard, and
to offer graduate instruction for
medical officers of the armed forces,
makes it imperative that we keep to-
gether an adequate teaching staff."
The greatest problem faced by the
medical school is in maintaining its
faculty. Already it has given 104
members to the armed forces and has
another 36 enrolled in an Army base
hospital unit which expects an immi-
nent call to active service. Never-
theless, the medical school has accel-
erated its curriculum along with oth-
er schools and will increase enroll-
ment in its next freshman class by
Graduate Courses Offered
The school will also offer graduate
courses to a number of medical offi-
cers beginning July 1.
The next freshman class will be
admitted to the school in June and
will take courses during eight weeks
of the summer term. The medical
school was recently offered a grant
of $10,000 by the W. K. Kellogg
Foundation, which will provide fi-
nancial aid for students who ordinar-
ily work during the summer months
to earn all or part of their expenses.
The Wartime Commission of the
United States Office of Education
is now working on a plan which
will provide similar assistance.
For Next Friday
A picnic, with outdoor sports. and
all the other trimmings, will be held
Friday, May 15, on the Island by the,
University Graduate Council.
The group will assemble at 5 p.m.
near the northwest door of the Rack-
ham Building. At a meeting held
last- Friday in the Rackham Build-
ing, the Council elected its major
officers for the coming year. They
are: Ivor Cornman, president; Karl
Kessler, vice-president; Robert Stev-
ens, treasurer; Harriet Smith, execu-
tive secretary; Wilma Eldersveld, re-
It was decided at that time to hold
subsequent council meetings every
fortnight and alternately on Tues-
days and Fridays at 5 p.m. Other ac-
tion taken was the decision to con-
tinue the rotation of committee posi-
tions so that all members may take
an active part in the affairs of the

Seniors: The firm which furnishes
diplomas for the University has sent
tihe following caution: Please warn
gradutes not to store diplomas in
cedar cests. There is enough of the
moth-killing aromniatic oil in the av-
erage cedar chest to soften inks of
any kind that might be stored inside
them, resulting in seriously damag-
ing the diplomas.
