to Be Taken Friday
Politically-minded engineers desir-
ing positions as freshman, sophomore
and junior class representatives on
the Engineering Council must submit
their petitions before next Friday,
Bud Burgess, '44E, the Council chair-
man of elections, announced yester-
These petitions, which are due be-1
fore noon Nov. 13 at the Dean's of-,
fice, 255 West Engineering Building,,
must contain 15 signatures of the
candidate's classmates, a list of the
candidate's qualifications for offices,
and a list of proposed activities for
the Engineering Council during 1942-
Another stipulation placed upon the
candidates, Burgess said, is that they
must have their pictures taken at
7:15 p. m., Friday, Nov. 13 in the sig-
nal corps room of the West Engi-
neering Annex. These pictures will
then be posted on the Council's bulle-
tin board in the Engineering college,
so that the engineer-voters may be-
come acquainted with the candidates.
A charge of 25c will be made to de-
fray the cost of the pictures. Burgess
said that sophomores and juniors
must also present their eligibility
cards at that time.
As has been the custom in the engi-
neering college, no campaigning ma-
terial is to be posted by any candidate.
Burgess emphasized that any posters
or campaign "propaganda" on the
part of a candidate will be considered
grounds for his disqualification.from
Two representatives will be selected
from each class, the one receiving the
highest vote serving for the remain-
der of his college career. Candidates
receiving the second highest number
of votes will serve for one year. Vot-
ing, which will be preferential, will
take place Nov. 17 and 18, at polls
located above the Arch and in the
East Engineering Building.

TRIALS OF TEACHING TO BE REVEALED:j
Michigan Graduates to Address
Teachers' Conference Today
en Michigan teachers, fresh from
their first few weeks in 'the little red
school house,' will give a series of
talks at 10:00 p. m. today in the
University High School auditorium at
the main session of the Conference
for Beginning Teachers.
The sevent, meeting of its kind to
be held in Ann Arbor, the conference
is sponsored annually by the School
of Education to straighten out prob-
lems of adjustment which will con-
front student teachers next year.
Through five-minute talks followed
by an open discussion,' difficulties in
teacher adaptation to the community
and school situation will be brought
to light. Classes which are particularly
difficult to teach, especially those in
crowded defense areas, will be looked
into, and personal problems will be
The assembly is only one part of a
three-fold program planned by edu-
cation school faculty and supervising
teachers in the University High
School. The conference will also con-
sist of individual meetings arranged
with special members of the staff so
that returning teachers may talk over
their problems. Following the main
assembly, group conferences will be
held. The three sessions are: "Prob-
lems of Adjustment," Odina Olson,
chairman; "Curriculum and Instruc-
tional Problems," Katherine Hill,
chairman; and "Problems of the Ele-
mentary School Teacher," Edith Dow-
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 football Ticket Resale Desk
will operate from 9:00 a. m. to 2:15
p. m. today in the lobby of the Michi-
gan Union, according to Dave Striff-
ler, '44, of the Union staff.
The Desk, located at the Union Tra-
vel Desk, works for the purpose of
aiding students and faculty members
in buying and selling tickets for
Michigan home football games.
Since student tickets are non-
transferable, they cannot be accep-
ted by the Desk. Only general admis-
sion tickets are handled. Operating
the Resale Desk as a public service,
the Union realizes n profit on its
transactions. All unsold tickets are
returned to their owners.
There is also available a block of
general' admission tickets for public
sale provided by the ticket office.

If democracy is the goal of educa-
tors, Ruthven added, they should in-
sist that liberal education is not a
luxury to be enjoyed in peace times.
"The chief business of schools in
a democracy . . . is the forming of
creative minds, the study of human
problems and the preparation of cit-
izens to govern themselves intelli-
Dr.Ruthven defended the arts and
cultural education by reading from a
letter written by President Roosevelt
and quoting an article by Columnist
Walter Lippman which extolled lib-
eral education in the arts as the final
answer to the problem of actually
winning the world peace.
To destroy the activity of teachers
teaching and students learning, he
said, would be "national suicide."
Speaking to those who doubt "the
appreciation of the nature and con-
sequences of the war by university
professors," Ruthven asserted. that
"any unprejudiced and informed ob-
server . . . must conclude that uni-
versities are now rendering their pro-
per service in the emergency as fully
as is any other type of institution ..."
The job of the educator is to main-
tain or restore civilization, Ruthven
said. They should hold the standards
of education at high levels in the
hope that when the storm is over
there will be someone to recover our
freedoms and reorganize a society of
"If our teachers cannot or will not
do these things, even at the risk of
misunderstandings, the victory will
be of little avail."
