Class V-5, flight training, and the
U.S.N.R. Reserve Midshipman train-
ing program, Class V-7.
War-time casualties among civil-
ian populations have caused the in-
auguration of a Civilian Protection
Training Program by the University
which is designed to give as many
persons as possible, basic knowledge
in methods of passive defense against
enemy air raids and in means of
dealing with active sabotage by en-
emy agents. Students, members of
the University staff and townspeople
have been strongly urged to take this
course which will be repeated from
time to time during the year.
This war, the University feels, can-
not be carried on by men alone, and
therefore has offered war training
courses for women. Under this topic
come such courses as fisrt aid, motor
mechanics, home nursing, nutrition,
nursery school work and typewriting.
However, the feminine contingent of
the University is not restricted to
these courses alone, for it is possible
for them to enroll in several of the
courses previously described.

To Graduates
lasses Salisfy Demands
For 7echnical Trainilig
Of Armiy, Navy Officers
University graduates of the past 10
years will be given the opportunity
this summer to study ultra-high fre-
quency techniques in a special full-
time course which the engineering
college will offer in an attempt to
satisfy Army and Navy demands for
cou mission'ed officers for duty in
fields like airplane detection.
Although members of the present
senior classes in electrical engineer-
ing are being trained in this field,
the numbers of men now in training
will not be adequate to meet the
present needs.
The course, Dean Ivan C. Craw-
ford of the College of 'Engineering,
reports, will comprise 12 weeks of
full-time work and will include a
review of circuit theory, additional
basic preparatory material, and in-
tensive study of ultra-high frequen-
cy techniques proper. This work
will be professionally valuable to the
trainees after the emergency has
Commissions as second lieutenants
in the Army, or as ensigns in the
Navy, will be given to those engineers
desirous of taking the course and
continuing in military service after-
ward. Upon completion of the course
the officers will either continue with
advanced study or be assigned im-
mediately to active duty. It is ex-
pected to start about'Jun e 10, 1442.
The first half of the course will be
devoted to refresher courses to re-
view fundamentals because many of
the graduates have not used certain
required techniques since graduation.
The second half will be a more ad-
vanced study of electrical theory and
techniques with emphasis upon those
used in listening devices

U' Library
Lfist Exeeds
Million Books
The facilities offered by the Uni-
versity library sys!em include 1,134,-
052 books located in the 13 libraries
which make up the entire system.
The hub of the system is the Gen-
eral Library located in the center of
the campus. Inexhaustible supplies
of reference material can be found
here in the main reading room, peri-
odical room, medical reading room,
graduate reading rooms and the two
study halls. The card files in this
building contain records of every
book in every University library.
Various Branches
The various branches of the library
system are located in Angell and
Tappan Halls, in the chemistry, en-
gineering, dentistry, architecture,
physics and museum buildings; in the
School of Education and in the Uni-
versity Hospital.
The General Library is open from
7:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. on week days,
and the periodical room and main
reading room are also open from 2
p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. Here a
vast quantity and variety of material
is available. Among the very exten-
sive collection of rare books are works
of military history dating from 1493,
a Goethe collection of 1400 volumes,
15th and 16th century algebra texts
and a large file of documents issued
by and bearing the signatures of
Napoleon, hit officers and cabinet.
Perlodical Room
In the periodical room the current
numbers of more than 1600 different
periodicals are kept for student use.
Medical periodicals and medical
books can be found in the medical
reading room.
The Library is maintained by an
annual appropriation of the Board of
Regents. The present General Li-
brary was erected in 1917-18 at the
cost of $615,000.

School Of Music Will Offer
GrautUndergraduate Plans

With emphasis placed upon gradu-
ate work in the Summer Session and
undergraduate study in the summer
term, two schedules of study for the
School of Music have been planned
by Dr. Earl V. Moore, director.
In the Summer Session which cov-
ers a period of eight weeks, June 29
to Aug. 21, instruction in applied
music, theory, music literature and
music education will be given by reg-
ular members of the faculty aug-
mented by several distinguished
guest instructors.
Some of these visiting instructors
are Maynard Klein, assistant profes-
sor of music at Tulane University;
Henry Sopkin, director of instru-
mental music at Woodrow Wilson
Junior College, Chicago; David Blair
McClosky, well-known concert artist
of New York City; Gilbert Ross, pro-
fessor at Smith College, and Glenn
H. Woods, director of music at the
Oakland, Calif., schools.
In addition to the regular Sum-
mer Session, the summer term from
June 15 to Sept. 26 will be offered.
This longer term will feature under-

graduate work and the instruction
will be under the direction of regu-
lar members of the faculty of the
music school.
The .Seventh Annual High School
Band Clinic will be held from July 5
to 26 under the sponsorship of the
School of Music. The event regular-
ly attracts a great number of stu-
dents of music
Beside the instruction to be offered
at the University,courses will also
be given at the National Music Camp
at Interlochen, of which Joseph E.
Maddy, professor of radio music in-
struction at the University, is presi-
dent and musical director. The affil-
iation with the University makes it
possible for college students-and pro-
fessional musicians to pursue courses
in music, drama, speech and radio
with college credits.
Among the faculty of '-the School
of Music who will instruct at Inter-
lochen this summer are Prof. Thor
Johnson, conductor of the University
Symphony Orchestra, and Prof. Har-
din Van Deursen, conductor of the
University Choir.

Few other colleges in the country
offer such ample provision for the
health of its students as at the Uni-

ice in the school year, most of themE
on an average of 10 or 12 times each.
About 25 per cent of the students
are patients in the infirmary, while
more than 20 per cent have their
eyes tested for glasses each year.
In addition to the thorough ex-
amination which is given to appli-
cants entering the University for the
first time and which is used for the
purpose of detecting cases of tuber-
culosis, testing of eyesight and de-
termining the general health of the
student, reexaminations and confer-
