at University Hi,
The 7th annual Conference for Be-
ginning Teachers which is sponsored
by the School of Education will open
at 10 a. m. tomorrow in the University
Each year this conference provides
young men and women who have just
begun to teach an opportunity to
discuss problems of adjustment. Fac-
ulty members of the education school
and supervising teachers of the Uni-
versity High School have planned a
The first part consists of informal
individual conferences arranged with
specific members of the staff so that
returning teachers may discuss spe-
cial interests with them.
The second part of the conference,
is an Assembly for Student Teachers
from 10 a. m. to 11:15 a. m. in the
University High School auditorium.
Ten speakers will discuss problems
which have confronted thenm in their
first few weeks of teaching. An open.
discussion will follow these talks.
Group conferences make up the
third part of the program. Three ses-
sions to be held are: "Problems of
Adjustment," Miss Odina Olson,
chairman; "Curriculum and Instruc-
tional Problems;" Katherine Hill,
chairman: and "Problems of the Ele-
mentary School Teacher," Edith Dow-

group; and Miss Margaret Kirkpat-
rick for the third group. All leaders
are members of the School of Educa-
Modern Trends Followed
The purpose of the conference, in
addition. to providing beginning
teachers with information and prob-
lem solutions, is to keep the education
school in touch with the changing
picture of Michigan schools and to
provide the faculty with additional
knowledge of the practical school
situation throughout the state.
The problems of adjustments which
the conference will discuss include
adaptation to the community and
school situation. Classes which are
particularly difficult to teach, espe-
cially in crowded defense areas will
be looked into, and personal problems
will be related.
Gargoyle to Feature
Short Story Contest
Two contests mark the beginning
of a new fervor in Gargoyle work, as
the magazine staff begins work on
,the December issue.
The short story contest is again
open to all young writers, with a $5
prize offered for the best 1,000-word
offering. Stories must be submitted
by the 16th of November.
Editor Olga Gruhzit, '43, also an-
nounces that the December "Photo
of the Month" contest is open, and
Stew Dinsmore, '42, and members
of Sphinx, Junior Honorary Society,
mixed blows in a tapping faux pas
which took place very early Thurs-
At 2:30 a. in., the rough, tough
Sphinxes burst into the Sigma Phi
house yelling loudly for Al Mactier,
'44, whom they intended to tap. They
noisily made their way to the second
floor and to the closed bedroom at the
end of the hall, where they were told
Al was sleeping. The Sphinxes en-
tered, and energetically began to tap
the man in the lower bunk, without
stopping to notice who he was.
He was Stew Dinsmore, Al's room-
mate, who awoke from a sound sleep
to find himself being dragged from
his bed and doused all over with cold
beer, by a bunch of complete stran-
gers. All the while, Al Mactier, the
would-be tapped, lay in the upper
bunk chuckling. Before the Sphinxes
realized their mistake, Stew began to
get peeved. He let fly a couple of hay-
makers which would have floored the
Sphinxes, en masse, if they had ever,
But when the Sphinxes saw Al in
the upper bunk, they grabbed for
him; and left Stew sitting on the
floor, mad and beer-soaked. Stew
thinks they should at least have apol-
contributions should be brought to
the Gargoyle office.
The magazine will appear in early
rum at 8:30

resale desk will be available today
from 3 to 5 p.m. and tomorrow from
9 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., according to
Bunny.Crawford, '44, publicity direc-
tor of the Michigan Union.
The desk is located at the Travel
Desk in the lobby of the Union. It
? operates for the purpose of aiding
students and alumni in buying and
selling tickets for Michigan's home
There are also regular tickets avail-
able for sale provided by the ticket
Since student tickets are non-
transferable, only general admission
tickets can be accepted for resale
over the counter. No profit is real-
ized by the Union in handling trans-
actions, and all unsold tickets are
returned to their owners.
Success of the Resale Desk in the
past has made it seldom necessary to
return unsold tickets. Last season's
operations boast a selling record of
98%, according to Crawford.
All persons who have not completed
their transactions with the Desk for
the Illinois game are asked to con-
tact the Resale Desk today or to-
morrow at the times specified.

battering of their supply depots by
American and Allied airmen. (A Reu-
ters dispatch said not a single Axis
tanker had been able to cross the
Mediterranean in the last six weeks.)
There were also accumulating signs
that the German African Corps, the
backbcne of the Axis invasion, was
outstepping its Italian counterpart in
the flight. The advancing British dis-
covered that Axis rear-guards were
mostly Italians, that most of thej
screen of rear guard weapons were
of Italian make. Marshal Rommel,
these dispatches indicated, clearly
was trying to save his own tattered
formations and leaving the Italians
to fend for themselves in a "jack-
rabbit war" where most commanders

The British announced yesterday
that General Von Stumme, second in

The tidal wave across the desert
was triangular, most of the speed be-

centrations. Fighter planes also
strafed Axis troops scurrying away
from the roads.
*While al the Allied air forces
spread continued destruction down
the long, weaving lines of retreating
motor convoys and armored vehicles,
U.S. heavy bombers reached out to
plaster Bengasi, Rommel's miain rear-
ward supply port.
They hit four ships for sure and
probably a fifth, reducing by that
much the German Marshal's chances
of supplying his defense.
In the air U.S. fighters got at least
four more enemy planes during
Wednesday's dogfights. No American
plane was lost.
(Axis high commands said their
desert armies had fallen back to "new
lines" or "prepared second positions."
Rome, placing the fighting between
El Alamein and Fuka, admitted: "Our

GRAND RAPIDS, Nov. 5.-(R)-A
resolution urging that excursion
steamers now making weekly pleasure
bruises on Lake Michigan and Lake
Huron be converted to common car-
resto transport tourists to resort
centers in the state was passed by
members of the West Michigan Tour-
ist and Resort Association at their
annual meeting here tonight.
The resolution authorized appoint-
ment of a 'three-man committee to
discuss possibilities of the plan with
operators of lake steamers and the
director of defense transportation.
Speeches and discussions at the
meeting centered largely on the prob-
lems created for the state's resort in-
dustry by gasoline rationing and
other wartime influences.
Only optimistic note injected in the
gloomy picture for 1943 was the as-
sertion by Jacob Zweedyk, manager
of the district Office of Price Admn-
istration here, That numerical losses
of tourists would be offset to some
extent by the longer stays they will
make at vacation spots.
