Photographs of
U' Servicemen
Will Be Shown
University graduates who are now
serving in the armed forces of the
United States are receiving their first
campus-wide recognition this week
in an exhibit entitled "Michigan's
Fighting Men," currently on view in
the lobby of The Michigan Union.
Featuring photographs of Michi-
gan men in service accompanied by a
brief explanatory note, this display
will be changed once every week.
Ten Michigan men of the past are
featured this week, two are in the
Navy, while the rest are flying with
the Air Corps.
In this week's display may be seen
two pictures of distinguished World
War veterans now high up in Army
administrative affairs. They are
Brigadier-General Gladeon Barnes
and Lt.-Col. Homer Hosking.
The exhibit is sponsored jointly by
the Michigan Union and the Univer-
sity Alumni Office in an effort to
emphasize Michigan's part in the war.



Dean Crawford Announces
Retirement of Mrs. Green

Only four and a half years short
of achieving a 40-year service rec-
ord, Mrs. Camilla B. Green, assistant
secretary of the College of Engineer-
ing, has officially retired.
Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the en-
gineering college made this an-
nouncement yesterday, but her resig-
nation was retroactive to Ott. 15.
Mrs. Green retired at the age of 72
because of failing eyesight. As yet
no successor has been named.
Dean Crawford, when asked for a
statement, said, "Probably no other
member of the staff has had so wide
an acquaintance over so many years
with alumni of the college . . . Her
efficient service and pleasing person-
ality will always be a treasured mem-
ory in the minds of faculty members
and students alike."
Mrs. Green began her three and a
half decades of service in the engi-
neering college Feb. 1, 1907, when
she assumed the duties of clerk to
the Secretary of the College. She
held this position until 1915 when
the post of assistant secretary was
created and she was appointed to it.
Since then Mrs. Green has held the
office continuously, having assisted

Prof. Louis A. Hopkins, now director
of summer session, most of this time.
Hopkins was Secretary of the engi-
neering college from 1915 to 1937.
In recounting her memories of the
"engine school" Mrs. Green recalls
how until World War I she was the
only woman employe in the secre-
tary's office. During her early days
at the University she did practically
everything for the entering engineer-
ing students. She reports meeting
them at the desk, assisting them in
registration and generally aiding
them to adjust themselves to the
Most of these duties have been
passed on to others, Mrs. Geen said.
However, she added that in over 60
cases during recent years she has
handled the records of students
whose fathers she was well acquaint-
ed with in years gone by. This, she
says, interested her most, for in one
case a Michigan graduate sent his
three sons to the engineering college
and in three other cases "alums" sent
two sons each.
Her experience also includes work
in the engineering college during the
last war,. which she said had a dras-
tic effect upon the office records.
Then Dean-Emeritus Mortimer E.
Cooley was education' director for
three states and had to keep records
of the enlisted reserves here. Also
enlisted men were given a three-
month training period at the Univer-
sity. It was in 1918, Mrs. Green ays,
that additional helpers were employed
in the office to relieve the war-caused
Van actor
To Conduct
at Concert
David Van Vactor, composer, flut-
,ist, conductor and at present a mem-
ber of the flute section of the Chicago
Symphony Orchestra, will conduct his
"Concerto Grosso," for three solo
flutes, solo harp and orchestra, at the
University Symphony Orchestra's
first concert of the year to be held at
8:30 p.m. Sunday in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
Mr. Van Vactor's career as a flutist
has been quite as striking as his ca-
reer as a composer. His conductor's
career began when he was a member
of the conductors' class of the Civic
Orchestra of Chicago. For several sea-
sons, he has been conductor of a
chamber orchestra of about 36 play-
ers, and his guest appearances with
other orchestras include the Chicago
and Indianapolis Symphony Orches-
tras and the New York Philharmonic
It was about the time of Mr. Van-
Vactor's entrance into the Chicago
Symphony that he wrote his "Con-
certo Grosso." It was an instant suc-
cess and remains in the current rep-
ertory of the Chicago gymphony.
Indian Freedom
To Be Debated
Mrs. Francesca Thivi and Dr. Wolf-
gang Kraus, of the political science
department, will discuss the question
of Indian independence at 8:30 p.m.
tomorrow at the Hillel Foundation.
Mrs. Thivi, a graduate student from
India, will speak on "Independence
for India Now," while Dr. Kraus will
maintain that Indian freedom should
wait until after the war.
The forum is the sixth in Hillel's
1942-43 series of Friday evening dis-
cussions. The meeting is open to the
public and there is no admission
charge. Refreshments will be served.
Arrangements for the series are be-
ing made by the Hillel Forum Com-
mittee, under the leadership of War-
ren Laufe, '44.

At the Michigan ...
Opening today at the Michigan
Theatre is a double feature bill which
includes "The Loves of Edgar Allen
Poe" and "Just Off Broadway."
The Poe picture tells the story of
Poe known only to the women who
loved him in an exciting romantic
Drama which stars Linda Darnell and
John Shepperd. The film brings to
the screen all of the drama that was
his life and takes advantage of the
story possibilities of America's liter-
ary genius.
The second feature is the story of
private detective Lloyd Nolan who is
cast as a member of the jury trying
attractive Janis Carter for murder.
A witness testifying in Miss Carter's
behalf is mysteriously killed by a
knife thrown at her in the courtroom.
Of course Nolan finds the evidence
which sets her free, but gets into a
little trouble doing it.
At the State . .
Virginia Bruce might well have in-
spired 'the title for "Careful, Soft
Shoulders" which opens today at the
State Theatre.
Miss Bruce pairs with James Elli-
son in this exciting suspense thriller
in which she plays the part of a
streamlined Mata Hari. Ellison,
meanwhile, commits what turns out
to be the almost fatal mistake of
romantically pursuing Virginia who
in turn already is pursuing some en-
emy agents specializing in tipping
off Axis U-boats on the whereabouts
of convoys.
"Careful, Soft Shoulders" provides
more thrilling suspense than the Axis
agents can bear and causes plenty
of round chuckles at their expense.
And there is as much romance as you
would expect when Virginia and Elli-
son get together.
Engine Election
Decides Class
Engineering election chairman Bud
Burgess, '44E, heaved a sigh of relief
yesterday as he announced that the
annual Engineering Council elections
are over and the results of six contests
in the freshman; sophomore and jun-
ior classes decided.
Voting has ben .going on during
the past two days with th heaviest
balloting having taken place yester-
day morning. It was in this ballotting
that Karl Reed, junior candidate for
representative to the Council, pulled
away from his closest competitor,
"Rip" Riopelle. Reed accumulated 111
votes against Riopelle's 66 and Jake
Jacobson's 65. Red and Riopelle were
both elected, the former serving for
the rest of his college career, the lat-
ter for the next 'year.
In the sophomore ballotting Carl
Otjen garnered nearly twite as many
votes as Joe Linker but both men
beat out five other candidates for the
class' two representative positions.
Freshman voting which took place
in the class assemblies yesterday was
similarly close with John Garner re-
ceiving 129 votes and Russ Youngdahl
amassing 121. Their nearest competi-
tors were Ed Ladd and Orin Ahlstrom.
Voting was proportional with two
candidates to be named on each bal-
lot. There was a total of 16 men run-
ning for the two offices in each of the
three classes.

Triangles, honorary engineering so-
ciety, has elected the following new
officers: Ralph Amstutz, '44E, presi-
dent; Bud Burgess, '44E, secretary,
and George Kozloff, '44E, treasurer.
The organization will meet at 7:00

future that we have been accustomed
to in the past. It is the intent of the
War Production Board to keep edu-
cational institutions operating with
their existing facilities and at their,
existing level, and this only so far
as it does not impede the war effort.
This means that the University shall
not expand its facilities, make im-
provements or alterations, or reha-;
bilitate any building, structure, or
project without specific approval of
the War Production Board, unless
there are no critical materials in-
We have been advised as follows:
"Most educational institutions
which have a satisfactory standing
and are expected to carry out war
training programs have adequate
equipment for such purposes, and
requests for expansion have to be
reviewed very critically."
This means that members of the
University of Michigan staff must,
in most cases, get along with what
they have. In this way they will
contribute most toward winning the

Shattering the old idea that ranking musicians must be
long-haired foreigners is the brilliant career of Albert
Spalding. Of American birth and training, his achieve-
ments have been recognized throughout the musical world.
Often referred to as the "Aristocrat of the Violin," he is a
man of such fine taste that he never permits himself to do
anything purely for display.
