World Strife Awaits Graduates;

Most of those who enter the Army
will immediately go into officers
training school.
On June 15 the University "summer
term" will begin and will set the pat-
tern, in the words of President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven, at least for the
duration of the war and "perhaps
for longer."
The Army and Navy will be dic-
tating programs and requirements
for large groups of enlisted reserves;
federal officials will be placing the
accent on training of men for pro-
fessions "critical to the war effort."
In every laboratory scientists will
have set aside their peace-time re-
search and re-filled their test tubes
with compounds to blend into a
stronger explosive or a sturdier ar-
mor-plate. Laboratory doors are shut
to strangers, patrolled by guards, and
the knowledge uncovered therein is
secrecy that never leaves the room.
Dr. Ruthven predicts that by aut-
umn, 1942, every entering freshman
will be ear-marked from the moment
he arrives for either a place in the
Army or Navy or for a job in a war
industry." There will be no excep-
tions," he asserts."
Ranks of the Law School, hardly
a war profession, are expected to be
thinned to a point of near-extinction.

morial Hall; Public Health, Diagonal

The line of march of the academic
procession will be State Street to
Ferry Field.
Rain will cancel the academic pro-
cession. Sounding of the University
Power House siren will indicate thatj
students should proceed directly to
the Field House and enter through
the South doors.
Diplomas will be distributed im-
mediately following the Commence-
ment exercises at designated tables in
the large gymnasium of the Sports
Building. Students will enter the
Sports Building by the door marked
with the name of their school or col-
lege. Teacher's Certificates will be
distributed by the same procedure.
Diplomas not called for within three
business days after Commencement
will be mailed to students C.O.D.

"We've been told we'll be bombed,"
the handsome if freckled actor said,
"but we're not afraid; every precau-
tion has been taken."
"We'll have to do the best with
what we have," Whalen explained,
"for there'll be no evacuation for us
as there are only three outlets-San
Francisco, Los Angeles and San Ber-
nardino. Even if there were water in
the desert and adequate gasoline-
which there won't be-it would takel
14 months to evacuate."
According to Whalen, the city is
prepared too--and was long before

Whalen dramatized a typical black-
out---"and we've had only one prac-
tice blackout- the rest were authen-

off the air "and we have to tune in
on out-of-state programs to hear
what's happening to us here."
Then the sirens wail and motorists
park their cars and run for shelter
in the nearest house. "Citizens fill

they have-with water, for the whole
section is dependent on a single res-
ervoir and if that were bombed ..

These slime-forming "bugs" attack

...t-hirsty muchinesr like thirsty men, need
Under the microscope on the slide above you see a "slime-
fot ming" organism uid 400 times, This tiny growth
doesn't look much like a saboteur - yet it can cut down
the load-carrying capacity of giant turbines in Detroit Edison
power plants. That is, it could if it were permitted to thrive.
But an hourly gas attack effectively smothers it.
In manufacturing electric power for war production in
factories and for use in stores and offices and homes, Detroit
Edison power plants require three times as much water every
day as the entire city of Detroit. The water is used to cool
thousands of condenser tubes over which exhaust steim
from the turbine is passed. Slime-forming organisms in the
water attach themselves to the insides of the tubes and foul
them, This lowers the efficiency of the condenser, turbine,
and the entire plant, and wastes fuel.
An early way of remodying the trouble was to shut down
the turbines and manually clean the condensers by forcing
rubber plugs through the tubes. But even with the best
hand-cleaning job that could be done, the maximum load-
carrying capacity is reduced. And all during the time
the tubes were being hand-cleaned, the turbine was out-of-
service , .. a matter especially serious in these days when
our gcnerating equipment must be kept running at top
efficiency. So a chlorine "gas attack" has come to the
rescue. The water is dosed with chlorine every 60 to 90
minutes, killing the "bugs" that form slime. This chlorination
has ended the slow "bottleneck" job of cleaning thousands
of tubes individually. And it has maintained practically new
equipment performance of the condensers -- doubly impor-
tant in our wartime operation. The Detroit Edison Company.
