The tenth section of the Univer-

undertook a training program which
will fit them as industrial inspectors

The ordnance students will carry
a full 48 hours of class work each

Jacques Feyder, who directed this
film, is an outstanding continental
director, and he is also known for
several pictures he produced in Hol-

ity of the scenes of the picture are
laid in the Flemish village of Boom

under King Phillip.
Survey Of Early Films
lhe Art Cinema League will also
present this year a group of pictures
which show the early development
of motion pictures in this country.
This series will be split into four Sun-
day programs and will show a survey
of films beginning in 1895 and con-
tinuing through to the end of the
silent era in 1928.
As has been the custom in past
years, tickets, priced at $1.10, are be-
ing sold for the entire four perform-
ances rather than single admissions.
These tickets can now be purchased
at the League and Union desks.
Technic, Delayed
In October Issue,
To Appear Monday
Technical difficulties will prevent
the Michigan Technic from going on
sale tomorrow, Keith Smith, '43E,
managing editor of the engineering
college's official magazine, announc-
ed yesterday.
He added, however, that the bigger
and better October issue will cer-
tainly be on the streets Monday. This
issue, the first of the present aca-
demic year, will be totally revamped
in style, content and make-up and
will include articles which have all
been written by alumni of the col-
lege.
Prominent among this year's new
Technic features is the professional
ethics section, Smith explained. This
feature, which will soon be followed
up by the formation of a profes-
sional ethics society, will present a
problem in ethics each issue. For the
best solution to the problem Technic
will give a five-dollar reward.
Another new feature will be "Au-
thorbiographies," which will be a
short biography of the authors of
the issue's articles.
The articles for the October issue
are "X-Ray for Production Control,"
by D. M. McCutcheon, '31E, "Thermal
Expansion of Metal," by T. H. Wick-
enden, '13E, and "Profit Sharing in
Industry," by W. B. Russell, '20E.

Telephone Lines
Are Battle Lines
USE LONG DISTANCE
FORTHE MOST
ONLY FR
NE CESSAYCAL
War is on the wires. Long distance lines are
crowded with the greatest volume of calls
they have ever carried. And the telephone
system cannot be enlarged substantially be-
cause necessary materials are going into
fighting equipment instead.
Consequently, we must make the most effi-
c ent use of present telephone facilities. You
can help by:
1. Using long distance only for the
most necessary calls.
2.oPlacing those calls by number
whenever possible.
3. Keeping all your telephone con-
versations brief.
