Professor G. E. Myers Retires
After 24 Years Of Service

Education School Praises
His Vocational Guidance
Ending twenty-four years of out-
standing service to the University,
the retirement at the close of the
first semester of Prof. George E.
Myers of the education school was
regarded by faculty and students
alike as a great loss.
Expressing their appreciation of
.his work, the Board of Regents said,
"Dr. Myers, as Professor of Voca-
tional Education and Guidance, has
given devoted and skillful service to
the University of Michigan for the
past twenty-four years, inaugurating
and organizing the Department of
Industrial Education and giving this
work the benefit of his wise leader-
ship, with the result that the Uni-
versity has been able to extend its'
usefulness widely throughout the
State, to the benefit of the indus-
tries, the workers, and this institu-,
tion." Dr. Myers has been made Pro-
fessor Emeritus of Education by the
Not only is Dr. Myers respected
for his educational achievements but
also is well liked by his students and
fellow faculty members. Dean James
B. Edmonson of the School of Edu-
cstion, spoke of this in his editorial.
"Dr. Myers has been a fine colleague.
He has been. affectionately regarded
by his students, and many will recall
with pleasure their work in his
Although he is retiring from active
service to the University, since he
has reached the retirement age of
seventy, Dr. Myers will by no means
end his important educational work.
"It is anticipated that Dr. Myers will
continue to be active in the field of
education, and frequent articles, even
Army Intricacies
Shown To Cadets
The hand salute, ruffles and flour-
ishes, first calls and the difference
indoors and out were described in
all their traditional intricacy and/or
simplicity at the meeting of Scab-
bd and Blade last night in the Nat-
ural Science Auditorium.
The meeting, attended by over 200
cadets and others, was designed to
aid in understanding army life, par-
ticularly its social aspects.
The ROTC Signal Corps collabora-
ted to operate the sound movie which
accompanied the discussion, an effort
to elaborate upon the prescribed mili-
tary course.

books, may be expected from him in
years to come," said Dean Edmonson.
Dr. Myers has made many note-
worthy contributions to the field of
vocational guidance. Last February
his book, "Principles and Techniques
of Vocational Guidance," was pub-
lished and has since become a stand-
ard text for the nation.
From 1931-32, Dr. Myers served as
president of the National Vocational
Guidance Association, and as presi-
dent of the Association of Industrial
Teacher Trainers, 1937-38.
Technic Sale
To Be Held
Latest Issue Will Discuss
'U.S. Fighting Planes,
Freshman Activities
Engineers and lesser intellectuals
alike will be interested in the Feb-
ruary issue of The Michigan Technic
when it appears on sale at 8 a.m. to-
morrow, because the magazine this
month will contain a well-illustrated
article on "U. .S. Fighting Planes,"
written by Charles W. Ranson, '42E.
Other articles, too, will be of gen-
eral interest, the editors predict,
namely, an explanation of the role
of "Engineering in Sculpture" by
Prof. Avard Fairbanks of the sculp-
ture department and the inside story
of the process of flunking out-"And
So You Failed," by Prof. Charles B.
Gordy of the mechanical engineering
Freshman engineers interested in
some extra-curricular activity will
find the new issue particularly help-
ful, as the editorial this month pre-
sents suggestions as to which activi-
ties might be helpful and how the
student can decide which activity he
is best suited for.
Having taken several courses in
which she was the only student, Vir-
ginia Frey, '42E, one of the few girls
in the engineering college, will ap-
pear in "The Technic Presents . .
as will Prof. James H. Cissel of the
civil engineering department and
varsity backstroker Dick Riedl, '42E.
Still recovering from a complete
sellout of the January issue, The
Technic staff is nevertheless hoping
for equally successful results this
time, and will put the issue on sale in
the East Engineering lobby, over the
Engineering Arch and in front of the
secretary's office, West Engineering

Organ Recital,
Will Feature
Bach, Copland
Bach and Aaron Copland will team
up today when Prof. Palmer Chris-
tian, University organist, gives the
first recital of the new semester at
4:15 p.m. in Hill Auditorium.
For, starting the program with the
Prelude and Fugue in E flat of 18th
century Bach, the program will pro-
ceed almost in exact chronological
order up to the 'Episode' of 20th
century American Copland.. Follow-
ing the Bach selection will be the
Lento from Orpheus by Gluck, Ga-
votte by Martini, Gavotte with Vari-
ations by Stanley, Adagio, Chorale
and Fugue by Guilmant, 'Episode,'
by Copland, and finally two pieces
by another contemporary American
composer, Eric De Lamarter, enti-
tled, Chorale Prelude on a Theme
by Hassler and 'For the Festival of
St. Louis.' These two last-named
compositions were completed last
summer while De Lamarter was a
member of the summer faculty of
the School of Music.
The Skinner organ in Hill Audi-
torium, on which Professor Christian
gives his recitals, is one of the out-
standing instruments in the country.
When Marcel Dupre, famous organ-
ist, played it here some years ago,
he pronounced it "one of the most
effective organs in the world," and
other guest recitalists have voiced
similar opinions.
The organ itself has a long and
interesting history. At the close of
the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893
the famous Farrand and Votey elec-
tric organ, which was on exhibition
in Music Hall, was purchased by the
University Musical Society, presented
to the University, and installed in
University Hall.
In 1913, with the completion of
Hill Auditorium, it was remodeled
and transferred to that building, and,
in 1927, the organ was replaced by
the present instrument, built by the
Skinner Organ Company of Boston.

Of First World War
Speak In Rackhaim
'America In War'

A proven leader both from a pulpit
and on the Great War's battlefields,
the Rt. Rev. Henry W. Hobson will
speak here Monday in Rackham Lec-
ture Hall on "America In War."
Bishop Hobson, head of the Dio-
cese of Southern Ohio, will deliver his
public lecture under the auspices of
the Ann Arbor Chapter of the Com-
mittee to Defend America.
While attending the Epsicopal
Theological Seminary in Cambridge,
Mass., Bishop Hobson enlisted in the
ROTC and finally went overseas as
major of the 3rd Battalion, 356th In-
fantry. Twice wounded and gassed
at Thiacourt, this Epsicopalian "Fa-
ther Duffy" was awarded the Distin-
guished Service Cross "for extra-
ordinary heroism in action near St.
Mihiel, France, September 12, 1918."
Bishop Hobson returned to theo-
logical studies after the Armistice
and continued his rise in the church
until he became Bishop of Southern
Ohio in 1930.
Long an advocate of unity in the
Christian church, Bishop Hobson has
been a powerful force behind the
principles of internationalism. In re-
cent months he has spent much time
supporting the Allies' cause.
Bishop Hobson received his A.B.
from Yale University in 1914 and
gained his D.D. in 1930 from Kenyon
Athena Pledges To Give
Program For Actives
Athena, women's speech society,
will feature a program conducted by
four new pledges at its meeting in
the League today at 4:30 p.m.
Elizabeth Campbell, '43, Dorothy
Cummings, '43, Margaret Evans, '43,
and Jeanne Cordell, '43, have orig-
inated the program as a part of their
pledge duties before initiation into
active membership in the society.
Selection of a new adviser for the
coming year, Mrs. H. V. S. Ogden,
was announced by the club's presi-
dent, Anna Jean Williams, '42.

Just like a Ruthven tea-only more
free food and less formality. And yet
you get the feeling that here at last
is something definite you have done
to help America's war effort: You
have given your blood.
That is the impression this re-
porter carried away from the Wo-
men's Athletic building yesterday. It
was the first day of student contri-
butions to the Red Cross blood plas-
ma program.
The first thing they do when you
enter the building is to hand you a
glass of orange juice. You are then
examined by trained nurses and a:
physician takes a pint of blood from
your veins, in as near to a painless
operation as it is possible to come
without merely tickling the donor.
If you had been expecting them to*
club you over the head as soon as
you entered the door and take the
blood from you in some horrible fash-
ion, all of this was-to put it mildly
-a pleasant surprise. But the best
was yet to come. Before you leave
you are served sandwiches, milk and
cigarettes by Red Cross workers. The
entire "party" takes about 45 min-
The mobile Red Cross unit, which
operates out of Detroit, will remain
in the city today and tomorrow to
afford more students and towns-
people the opportunity to give their
blood. Students-who recently volun-
teered at the Union will be notified
by post-card today at what time they,
are scheduled to arrive at the Wo-
men's Athletic Building. They are
strongly urged to avoid canceling the
In anticipation of the return of the
unit-March 30 and 31-persons in-
terested in helping to save the lives
of American soldiers, sailors and

marines may register at Red Cross
headquarters in North Hall or by
telephoning 2-5546. A reserve list is
to be kept at all times and donors
will be notified when the mobile unit
returns to Ann Arbor. It is hoped
that many students who are under
21 years of age will by that time have
received their letters of permission
and will offer donations.
Colby Lecture
Will-Be Given
Similarity To Be Shown
in Spanish, Portugese
Stressing the increasing need for
a knowledge of Portugese. Mr. Leroy
Colby of the Spanish department will
address La Sociedad Hispanica in the
third lecture of its current series at
4:15 p.m. Friday in Room D, Alumni
Memorial Hall.
Few people, Colby asserts, realize
the close connection between Portu-
gese and Spanish, and, in his talk
"Some Similarities Between Spanish
and Portugese" he will describe the
points of' likeness and difference in
the two languages.
With an eye to furthering better
relationships with South American
countries, Colby points out that Bra-
zil is a Portugese-speaking nation.
In view of this fact, it would be high-
ly beneficial in our dealings with
Brazil to have Americans who speak
and write Portugese.
The lecture Will be delivered in
English. except for linguistic com-
parisons between the two languages.
La Sociedad urges everyone to at-
tend, and announces that a know-
ledge of either Portugese or Spanish
is not necessary for the understand-
ing and enjoyment of the lecture.
