Help Required
For Rationing
CDVO Reports Assistants
Signing To Handle Fuel
Oil Application Work
Volunteers Wanted
As the date for fuel oil rationing
draws nearer more University men
and women together with city resi-
dents are volunteering their services
to handle applications, and to com-
pute allotments, the local, Civilian
Defense Volunteer Office announced
yesterday, with an appeal for added
Students, graduates and faculty
members from the School of Business
Administration and the architecture
school who have had training in ac-
curacy and business are especially
being welcomed by the Ann Arbor
rationing board.
Although it did not disclose any
names, the CDVO stated that two
graduates of the University School of
Business Administration will hold key
positions in the rationing office.
One of the men has been a pro-
fessional accountant in Detroit, has
done volunteer accounting for the
Red Cross, and is now on the staff of
a local concern. The other man, who
will be assigned to special advisory
duties due to his previous construc-
tion experience, is now employed by
a local lumber company.
Despite the claim of the volunteer
office that Ann Arbor is showing
"rapid response" in volunteers for
handling the rationing, several work-
ers are still needed before the organi-
zation will be able to cope with the
expected flood of applications.
Governor Van Wagoner has written
to state-wide utilities, such as electric,
telephone and gas companies, re-
questing them to register full staffs
of their local branches for volunteer
rationing duty with their local CDVO.

Michiegan Married Me
Face December Draft

.... !

. . . . r _ _ *- ..-




LANSING, Oct. 21.-- (P)-- Michi-
gan's December draft quota may take
between 5,000 and 10,000 married
men, the State Selective Service
headquarters -said today.
A heavy November quota, it was
said, may be filled without inducting
married men other than those who
married when there was reason to
believe they would be subject to the
Spokesmen said the November
quota was "roughly equal" to the
number of men drafted in the entire
first six months of' 1942, and that the
December quota was 10 per cent
greater than that..
"Even if action is completed on
Congressional legislation allowing the
drafting of 18 and 19 year old men," a
statement said, "we still would need
between 5,000 and 10,000 married
men-those who have no children-
in addition to., those married in the
face of imminence of induction.
"We have not. yet learned what
disposition should be made in cases
of married men who have no children,
but who do contribute to the support
of collateral dependents such as par-
ents and brothers or sisters."
The time required to "process"
younger draftees would prevent their
induction before the latter part of
December regardless of how soon

Two dusty city ordinances were
brought out of the files yesterday
when fire and police officials layed
down the "leaf burning" law to num-
erous cooperative houses, fraternities,
sororities and to Ann Arbor citizens.
As falling leaves continued to blan-
ket the city the phones at police and
fire 'headquarters were busy with
complaints of annoying bonfires and
Fire Chief Benjamin Zahn agreed
that there are very few city residents
who know of the leaf burning ordi-
nances and many who violate them
unknowingly. One ordinance states
that no leaves shall be burned out-
doors after 2 p. m. This also pertains
to the burning of other refuse and
Another city law holds that it is
unlawful to burn leaves in the street.
Chief Zahn pointed out that, al-
though many people don't realize it,
leaf fires are very hot and usually
melt orcrack good pavements.
"Naturally I don't recommend that
residents rake their leaves into the
streets for city employes to pick up,"
he explained, "because there is a
labor shortage and it isn't very patri-
otic." He suggested that leaves be,
burned in driveways or in back yards
away from buildings and trees.
Chief Zahn frowned upon the ordi-
nance setting 2 p. m. as the leaf burn-
ing deadline because "with all this
war time mixup it is really noon at
two o'clock and the leaves are still
pretty wet. That is why most of them
make such annoying smoke."

they are ordered drafted, it was ex-
Spokesmen said that until Decem-
ber, no married persons other than
those who wed when they could ex-
pect to be inducted, should be called
for the draft, regardless of whether
their wives are employed, or capable
of self-support.
New Pre-Aero
Plan Is Started
Ann Arbor High Schools
Train Future Pilots
An air-conscious nation and a
speeded-up war effort are the goals
behind a new pre-flight training
course just instituted by the Univers-
ity High School and the Ann Arbor
High School.
This addition to the curriculum is
open to eleventh and twelvth grade
students interested in the field. It
first originated after a pioneer pro-
ject was conducted jointly by Colum-
bia University and the University of
Nebraska in cooperation with the
Civil Aeronautics Authority.
Ann Arbor High School educators
caught the idea last spring, completed
their plans by July 1, and secured the
textbook, "Science of Pre-Flight Aer-
onaptics for the High Schools".
The introduction of the course con-
sists of a brief history of aviation and
its social significance, while the re-
mainder of the course is concerned
with aerodynamics or the theory and
structure of flight, types of airplane
motors and meteorology. A six weeks'
experimental course was conducted
this summer at the University High
At present fourteen students arej
enrolled, three of which are girls.
Word was received here yesterday
that John F. Main, a member of the
Supreme Court of the state of Wash-
ington and a graduate of the Uni-
versity, died last week after a short
illness. Judge Main studied law here
from '97 to '99 after completing his
undergraduate work at Princeton
University. -

our government issued an order requiring us, in effect ,to reduce the mileage
involved in our pick-up and delivery service by 25%. To conform with this or-
der we will necessarily have to operate on d five day service. Our new schedule
is printed below . .. under it our trucks will be in your section of, the city once

every week.

Your cooperation will make this conservation measure a success.

Want To Be A Teacher?
Prospectived Teachers Advised
To Study Math, The Sciences

If you are ineligible for the draft,
interested in teaching and want to be
sure of getting a job after graduation,
one of the safest bets is to follow the
Bureau of Appointment's suggestion
to prospective teachers and concen-
trate your energies on mathematics
and the sciences.
In a recent survey of scarcity areas
in teaching, the Bureau of Appoint-
ments and Occupational Information
answered the questions most fre-
quently asked during registration:
"In what fields will I be sure of get-
ting a position?" To the women, the
Bureau answers that the demand is
greatest in elementary education,
commercial work or in mathematics
and science. For men, the best oppor-
tunities wvill be found in mathematics,
science, industrial arts, physical edu-
cation or in band direction.
"Of course," states the Bureau's
report, "there will be many positions
in history, English, Latin, speech, and
in most all teaching fields but those
just mentioned offer the best insur-
ance forda position."
In the rush of applicants invading

eau, "in New York state or near De-
troit or in the Genesee county or a
thousand and one other restricted
areas, they may not be able to be
placed. One person we know of has
been offered at least 15 jobs and has
refused them all because they were
not in the right location."
The Bureau, which all last week
was registering people desiring posi-
tions, states that it will be glad to
furnish statistics concerning calls and
placements where opportunities were
best last year.

Laundry picked up --


Will be delivered -


As long as possible we will maintain this schedule of service, however,
it is subject to change because of the local labor shortsge.
