Extension Service To Continue
Conferences Into Third Semester

Continuing its policy of holding
conferences on into the summer the
University Extension Division has
planned four meetings for the sum-
mer months, according to Dr. Charles
Fisher, director of the Extension
Under the leadership of Arden E.
Hardgrove, superintendent of the
Norton Memorial Infirmary, Louis-
ville, Ky., the Institute on Hospital
Purchasing will hold a five-day meet-
ing here beginning June 1.
Held Last Year
An undertaking of the American
Hospital Association, the first such
Institute was held last year at Johns
Hopkins University. The program
will consist of lectures and seminars
on the theory and practice of pur-
chasing a hospital and will also in-
clude discussions on the hospital's
part in the war effort.

Frosh Program
For Summer
Short Orientation Period
To Be Given Freshmen;
Advisers Are Named
Approximately 300 new summer
term freshman men will be aided in
adjusting themselves to campus life
by the Union-sponsored Orientation
Under the supervision of Freshman
Orientation Chairman Marvin Bor-
man, '44, the program will begin'
Wednesday, May 10, and run through
Saturday, May 13.
About 23 freshmen will be assigned
to each of a group of selected stu-
dent advisers. These counsellors will
guide their groups through the some-
what confusing maze of activities
which confronts new students, Fresh-
men, as in the past, will be put
through a series of examinations
ranging from the usual physical and
scholastic aptitude tests through Eng-
lish content exams and a special
chemistry test to determine advanced
standing. Following these they will
confer with their academic advisers
who will counsel them on classifi-
cation and registration.
Realizing the heed for making the
student feel at home in his new en-
vironment, the Union is continuing
its policy of providing a strong social
side to the Orientation Program. Last
year's successful innovation of indi-
vidual coke dates for freshman men
and women will be continued as will
a robust athletic program at the In-
tramural Building and guided tours
designed to acquaintknew students
with campus landmarks.
All the recreational facilities of
the Union-swimming pool, ping
pong and billiard rooms, bowling
alleys, cafeteria, taproom and Pen-
dleton Library-will, of course, be

tinuing until June 28, a meeting of
200 representatives of organized labor
will be held under the sponsorship of
the University and the United Auto
Worker's Division of the CIO.
Termed a "very important" meet-
ing by Dr. Fisher, the labor leaders
will be instructed in labor history,
labor law and economics, consumer's
cooperatives, taxation, conversion to
war work, public speaking, folk-danc-
in, etc.
The precedent for labor meetings
was set some years ago when Prof.
John W. Riegel of the economics de-
partment held a meeting here of the
state AFL officials. The coming con-
ference will be led by University pro-
fessors and CIO leaders.
Final Meeting
The final meeting of the summer
will be the second annual Fire College
held July 14, 15, 16 and 17. Harry
K. Rogers, engineer for the West
Actuarial Bureau of Chicago, will
act as chairman at this conference
and will have complete charge of the
school's direction.
Directed by firemen through their
representatives, courses will be of-
fered in fire prevention and control,
first aid, and civilian defense. The
school is designed primarily for small
town volunteer firemen, but fire
chiefs from Pontiac, Flint and other
cities will also attend.
For the first time in the history of
the University, the Extension Serv-
ice will also offer summer work in
Detroit. It is planned to teach his-
tory, sociology, geography and speech
at the Horace A. Rackham Educa-
tional Memorial Building, as well as
several non-credit courses for wo-

Union To Keep
Facilities Open
In Third Term
Doing its part to make the war-
born Summer Term a social and re-
creational success, the Union, under
the leadership of President Don West,
'43E, will keep its vast facilities open
throughout the semester.
Return of nine members of the
10-ttan Executive Counwl will make
possible a relatively extensive pro-
gram of summer activities. Just how
extensive the program will be de-
pends largely upon the number of
sophomore staff members returning
in June.
Although the weekend Union
dances will be abandoned during the
summer months, a lively social pro-
gram of tea dances, bridge tourna-
ments and coke bars is planned to
help students through the throes of
summer study.
In addition, Union-sponsored func-
tions will have a serious side, repre-
sented by continuation of the drive
for Red Cross blood donors and other
war-inspired activities. Non-credit
courses in leadership and first aid
will be offered and several new war
services will be introduced this sum-
One of the most striking of the lat-
ter will be a giant war chart giving
complete, detailed information about
all branches of the United States
armed forces. Plans are also being
completed for the maintenance of
contact with Michigan men in all
types of war service.

the University of Michigan, for the first time in its history, will open its
doors June 15 for a full-length summer semester.

the "Third Term," students will be able to accelerate their curricula in re-
sponse to the Government's urgent needs for college graduates In every

the Summer Term. This figure does not include an estimated 300 to 400
entering freshmen.
Essentially the same type of courses will be offered in each school and

The University of Michigan, prov-
ing itself to be no academician's
ivory tower, has adjusted itself to
the requirements of a nation at war'
and adopted its War Training Pro-
gram in order to better fit its stu-
dent for the country's service.
The new program, designed to help
its students equip themselves not only
for citizenship but to aid them in
finding their places in the new na-
tional scheme, has to objectives: first,
to train personnel, and second, to
carry on research upon problems the
solution of which will help the nation
to win the war.
Emphasizing the necessity for stu-
dents to select courses that help pre-
pare them for their patriotic duty,
the new program not only includes
certain subjects in the regular cur-
riculum which are definitely helpful
in preparation for wartime service,
but a number of courses which deal
with the background, causes, and spe-
cial phases of the present world con-

of the war are such as diplomatic his-
tory, military law, industrial man-

ciology courses.
Also, the Department of Military
Science and Tactics offers an oppor-
tunity to supplement the regular mil-
itary academics in keeping up the
supply of trained Army officers
through the Army ROTC. This unit,
now boasting of an enrollment of
more than 1,100 students, has an
eight semester program which upon
its completion the graduates receive
second lieutenant's commissions in
the Officers Reserve Corps.
Not to be surpassed by the Army,
the Naval Reserve Officer's Training
Corps is now in its second year of
operation at the University, train-
ing male students to become ensigns
in the Volunteer Branch of the Naval
Reserve. This course is also four
