Schools' Problems

Michigan Secondary School Associa-

of the University of Michigan as
"confusing" and requiring "full meas-
ure of educational statesmanship."
While approximately 200 principals
of high schools from throughout the
state expressed uncertainty as to
what steps must be taken in face of
imminent induction of 18 and 19
year olds, Koch declared that pre-

Willow Run, "typical disorganized
community with inadequate schools,
lack of ordinary facilities for fire
protection and health protection and
poor housing," is the subject of a
research project being conducted by
the Michigan Child Guidance Insti-
Mr. James E. Stermer, field sociol-
ogist for the Guidance Institute, who
is directing the study, said, "The
point is whether from such an area
there will be more maladjusted chil-
dren than from an ordinary organ-
ized community."
Attacks Problem
In an interview concerning the
project Mr. Stermer said, "This study
is attacking the problem of delin-
quency from the standpoint of caus-
ation, assuming that the individual
must inter-act with his environment
and that if environment -is disor-
ganized, we can expect to have an
individual who will not be able to
adjust himself to the ordinary expec-
tations of society."
The first step of the project, which
has just been completed, was carried
through by 46 student volunteers
from the sociology classes of Prof.
Richard Fuller, Prof. Lowell Carr,

Made Trips
Throughout the semester the stu-
dents have made regular trips to the
Willow Run area chosen for the work.
The area, composed of trailer homes
and permanent dwellings, was cov-
ered in a house-to-house canvass in
an attempt to construct a directory of -
the people living in the area, so that
important statistics concerning the
people and their social attitudes
might be determined.
The problems of Willow Run are
not unique in that defense com-
munities all over the country are
springing up and are constantly be-
ing faced with the same problems.

(Editor's Note: Here is the final in-
stallment of Hoe Seltzer's yarns of his
experiences on a convoy this summer.
Seltzer is a former Daily sports night
This gun captain knows what he's
talking about. He hasjust returned
from a trip to Murmansk and tells
me what'a jolly time he had. They
call the stretch between Scapa Flow
and Russia Hell's Highway and the
only criticism of the appelation is
its quality of understatement.
'Five days before reaching port
the jamboree starts and continues
without interruption until five days
out of Murmansk westward bound.
The menace is a quadruple one, you
don't exactly get your choice but
the menu includes mines, surface
raiders, submarines and Stukas
with the latter having by far the
leading batting average. The gun
captain tells me hew they operate.
On the dive from a low-hanging
cloud they strafe the decks to dis-
courage opposition. Then they level
out abeam of the ship and release
their one aerial torpedo. And on'
Permanent Federal
World Union to be
Debated by Team
"Resolved, that a permanent fed-
eral world union be formed from the
United Nations," will be the question
on the floor when the men's debating
team meets a squad of the University
Heights College of New York Uni-
versity in its first inter-collegiate
debate of the season at 4 p.m. tomor-
row in Room 4203 Angell Hall.
After a series of intra-team de-
bates, Coach Arthur Secord of the
speechudepartment has selected Char-
les Murphy, '44, and John Muehl,
'43, to uphold the negative argument
for Michigan in this, the first of two
debates with the two literary col-
leges of N.Y.U. While'no notification
has been received as to who will rep-
resent the Washington Square Col-
lege on Monday, Irving Gartenberg
and Yale P. Joseph will make up the
University Heights squad tomorrow.

the sweep up over the ship as they
pull out they plant a stick of bombs
amidships. Three strikes they get
and they rarely strike out. All this
time the gun crew is trying to chop
them down in sub-zero weather that
numbs fingers and makes it almost
impossible to even shoot the 20-
millimeter guns much less aim
them. And one final happy note:
During the season that the Mur-
mansk route is open to shipping it
is always daylight.
The gun captain tells me he was
in a singularly successful convoy.
He gives me the statistics of ships
lost and these are the sort of, fig-
ures they don't print in the papers
but they're the sort that give the

Police Search for
Coed Who Eloped
Marjorie Ann Shaw, '45, became a
statewide attraction yesterday, but
it happened by way of protest for her
ow, attraction to an. unidentified
Flint man with whom she supposedly
Miss Shaw, a 20-year-old coed, be-
came the subject of statewide police
search at the request of her mother
who objected to the elopement. It
was reported that she had disclosed
to her friends in Flint that she in-
tended to elope.
According to information obtained
by the Flint police Miss Shaw with-
drew $50 from her bank account in
Flint Saturday, and then on Monday
supplemented these funds with an
additional withdrawal of $740, most
of which was in traveler's checks.
No word has been received from
the coed since.

brings a friend and word soon
reaches us that we have with us
select company. This commodore is
in a word the commodore of the
commodores, an old hand at the
convoy game with experience dating
back to 1917. His chum bears -the
title of submarine expert although
I can never quite figure where he
fits into the scheme of things un-
less it is to say yes commodore that
is a submarine that is shooting at
us. But in any event we have what
may be termed the acme of protec-
tion for our northbound journey
and indeed I am about to stuff my
lifebelt in the bottom of my locker
for the rest of the trip when I learn
that these same two brothers lost
three ships within three minutes on
the last convoy they brought down
the coast, the very first ship reamed
being their own. So I keep my life-
belt handy.
The boys stage a beautiful come-
back however and we pull into New
York five days later without having
dropped one depth charge. And al-
though I have come to love the ship
as much as a guy can love steel
plates and gray war paint and the
rocking, rolling motion, and that is
plenty, I have to sign off because
they slap big guns on her and send
her out on a foreign run and she
won't be back till Christmas and I
still have that date with medical
school early in October.
When people ask me what did
you do during the summer I say I
worked on a tanker and they say
did you see any submarines? I
would like to comment on that. If I
had seen any submarines I would
probably not be writing this now
and people would not be asking me
that question. No, I did not see any
