To Give Draftees
For Work Done

When a student in the Literary
School faces induction into military
service and has done enough work in
a &ourse to have established a definite
basis upon which his work may be'
evaluated, he may take advantage of
the pro-rated credit system estab-
lisbled last February.
Under tle joint direction of Dean
N. A. Walters apd Dean L. S Wood-
burne, this system has already estab-
lished credit for 30 students who have
been forced to leave the University to
enter the Armed forces of the' United
As soon as a student sees that he'
will be called into service, he should
communicate with one of the' deans
for pro-rating of credit. The deans
then communicate with th' student's
instructors and ask them for recomn-
mendations in terms of hours of credit
and quality of work completed..
When the instructors send in their
reports on the student's work to the
pro-rating committee, the committee
is guided in its final action by at-
tempting. to allow the partial credit
to accord with the number of weeks
of the semester which the student has

Theatre Group
Presents First
D ratma Nov. 4
With the presentation of a new
war play "Sundown" by Prof. John
L. Brumm of the journalism depart-
ment Play Production will open its
1942-43 season Nov. 4 in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
"Sundown' was written espe ally
by Professor Brumm to commemorate
the 25th annual convention of the
University Press Club, and it will be
given Friday evening to its members
which includes the editors and pub-
lishers of the state of Michigan. The
public is also invited to this perfor-
This initial production will be pre-
sented at 8:30 p. m. Nov. 4 to Nov. 7.
Tickets will go on sale Monday, Nov.
2, at the Mendelssohn Theatre box
office and may also be secured in the
meantime by writing to Play Produc-
tion, Department of Speech, at 3211
Angell Hall.
An expression of our times, "Sun-
down" deals with a mistaken notion
of cowardice and a young man's psy-
chological reaction to its influence.
Youth's relation to. the present war
is described, and its subsequent effect
toward the improvement of a post-
war society is portrayed in this serio-
Besides depicting the total effect of
a war in the sacrifices of youth and
their struggle to achieve a better soci-
ety, "Sundown" is presumably the
first modern play to present the situ-
ation of a girl at a battlefront.

Prison Adopts
Strict Policy
IONIA, Mich., Oct. 24.- ()- State
reformatory officials announced stern
disciplinary steps today to guard
against recurrence of rioting that
marked an unsuccessful+ escape at-
tempt by a group of long-term con-
victs who planned to kidnap the dep-
uty warden as a hostage.
Deputy Warden Fred Sanborn, one
of two reformatory officials who were
knifed in a scuffle with the prisoners,
said nine inmates, including the three
whom he described as ring-leaders,
had been placed in solitary confine-
ment. Others, he said, have been de-
prived of privileges pending the re-
turn of Warden Joel R. Moore, who
is attending a convention of the Na-
tional Prison Association.
The deputy warden said the out-
break began when heentered a room
containing the nine convicts and four
guards. One of the inmates, Robert
Grant, 19, of Flint, serving 22 to 15
years for burglary, menaced him with
an improvised knife, he said, while
the others, all similarly armed, sought
to overpower the guards.
Sanborn's right thumb was gashed
in disarming Grant.
