First Talk of
Series Given
by Dean Walter
Freshmen Advised
to Continue Education,
Come Back after War
"You are learning to fight for con-
tinuation of liberal education in this
world and in this University," Dean
E. A. Walter told members of the
freshman class in the first in a series
of re-orientation lectures last night
at Lane Hall.
"I am impatient with the student
who upon withdrawing from the Uni-
versity dolefully exclaims that he will
not return after the war," he said.
"Come back and claim your share.
And when you come back you will
know even more definitely than you
do now what you want to study and
Speaking of PEM, Dean Walter de-
scribed John Milton's 1644 version of
an education which would be "equally
good both for peace and war," by in-
cluding exercise and due rest, at the
same time developing strength and
courage. This would be tempered with
lectures and precepts to make them
hate the cowardice of doing wrong.
"Take a book with you to the Ar-
my," he advised. "Let it be your in-
dispensable, whether it be the Bible,
Shakespeare, Lewis Carol, Longfel-
low, Pickwick Papers, Keats, Mark
Twain, or Charles Lamb. Such a book
will continue to give meaning to+ life
when the only relaxation may be a
newspaper, the radio, a movie, or the
"Continuing your reading of the
foreign language you have studied
will help to keep alive in you one of
the traditions of a liberal education,"
he declared.



Brown Bre
Rationing Is
Taken in Stride
Students, dry-throated from strict
government coffee rationing, are stol-
idly sipping their cup a day and tak-
ing the program in stride.
That's the report this week from
almost any place on campus and off
that provides the brown brew for
the student trade.
The carry-out business is stopped
dead. The second cup is out. The
level of consumption has slumped.
But from the Union, the Wolverine,
fraternities, sororities, dormitories
and restaurants comes the news that
students are drinking what they can
get and going their way with hardly
a grouch.
Milk-drinking has shot up in the
Union, managers report, and there's
still coffee for regular customers.
Beanage has been slashed to 65 per
cent of a year ago, but voluntary
reduction of drinking evens it up they
Twenty-five hundred dormitory
students will probably be offered two
cups of coffee a day two or three
times a week, University dieticians
indicate, if rationing effects so far
are any indication.
Strangely- enough, rigid govern-
ment rationing hasn't crippled the
restaurant coffee trade. All along
State Street owners report themselves
able to meet demands so far of every
customers who orders a first cup.
"Hardly anybody asks for a second,"
proprietors report. "They seem to
know nowadays what's coming off."

American Youth Toughen Up

East Quad esidents ay Face
Evacuation if Army Enters

Amazed residents of the East Quad
went into huddles yesterday as they
learned that they may face a mass
exodus from the building which could
be used as barracks for the Army
Air Corps pre-meteorological school
to be established March 1.
They remembered that in the con-
tract each of them was required to
sign there was a "war rider clause"
providing that they might be asked
to leave.
Some long-memoried dorm men re-
called that they "saw those' men in
uniform looking over the place and
inspecting the kitchen facilities a few
weeks ago." "I knew something was
up," one said.
Quad residents, many of whom are
about to be inducted into the armed
forces, philosophically leaned back,
pulled on cigarettes, nonchalantly
said: "Well, it doesn't bother me."
With the amazement there was,
however, no confusion. Instead good-
natured smiles broke out and one
Mickle Is Awarded
Army Cominission
Prof. Frank A. Mickle of the me-
chanical engineering department has
been commissioned a lieutenant col-
onel in the U.S. Army in charge of
a program of standardization and
specification in the development
branch of the Tank-Automotive Cen-
ter of the Ordnance Department in
Detroit, it was disclosed yesterday.
Lieut.-Col. Mickle will supervise
standardization of design, simplifica-
tion of production maintenance, and
supplies of spare parts. This program
has been instituted by the Ordnance
Department through reduction of the
number of basic types and sizes of
vehicles, the number of variations be-
tween vehicles of the same basic size
and type and the diversity of compo-
nent parts and accessories used for
the vehicles.
Colonel Mickle, who graduated
from Ohio State University in 1912,
was appointed an instructor in the
University in 1914.

"Chinese Industry-its role in the
war and in the peace to come" will be
discussed at the China Today. Forum
at 7:30 p.m. today in the Internation-
al Center.
Leader of the discussion is to be
Makepeace Uho Tsao, grad.
The China Today Forum is cooper-
ating with the Chinese Students
Group in the study of national recon-
sti tion problems. The purpose of
the Forum is to help acquaint Ameri-
can students with Chinese history,
culture, and current questions, and
it is open to the entire student body.

"I'm sure that fellows in the Quad
will want to be included in the Drive,"
he said.
Goodfellow Committee reaction
was immediately favorable, chairman
George Sallade, '43, saying, "This co-
operation from the West Quadrangle
is very welcome, as it means that
a large group of students who would
not otherwise be reached by Good-
fellow Daily sales will now have a
chance to buy the paper and help
swell the fund. We hope this will
voluntarily extend to other dorms
on campus."
But meanwhile contributions from
campus organizations . which last
week pledged support of the Good-
fellow campaign have sharply de-
creased. Goodfellow returns on these
contributions are counted on for more
than half of the total.
With the addition of a dormitory
sales campaign to the regular cam-
pus sales, taken this year by sorority
and fraternity members, and Man-
power Corps sales in the downtown
area, the paper sales this year will
cover a greater area and number of
people than ever before, according
to Goodfellow Committee members.

Children's Theatre to Present
'Seven Little Rebels Tonight

Don't lose important
personal papers
"The greatest personal time-saver;
we ever had"- say housewives of
the new War Chest. "There are
- folders for everything-and it's so
handy for receipts, ration books,
war stamps and bond records, paid
bills, and even recipes. Abd these
popular chests make the grandest
bridge prizes!"
:.,.Just the thing for last-minute
Christmas gifts.

"Everything for the Offiee"
r, .

Under the direction of Mrs. Nancy
Bowman Bauer, the Children's Thea-
tre of the Department of Speech will
present its first play of the year,
"Seven Little Rebels" by Rosemary
Musil, at 3:30 p.m. today and at 1:30
p.m. and 3:30 p.m. tomorrow in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The cast of this play is made up of
children of the Ann Arbor schools
and student members of the Uni-
versity. Those who will participate
from the campus are Lillian Moeller,
'44, William Ludwig, '44, Sally Levy,
'43, Blanche Holpar, '44, John Bab-
ington, '44, Wallace Rosenbaum, '43,
and Dorothy Wineland, '43.
"Seven Little Rebels" is concerned
with the children of a settlement
house, and their antics and schem-
ings make possible much fun
throughout the play. A duck, a pet
snake, a circus and even a small-pox
scare do much to increase the hilarity
of the performance.
The Chilren's Theatre has this year
become a part of the speech depart-
ment and for the first time will have
all the advantages of the dramatic
facilities of this department. Mrs.
Bauer, who has long been associated
with University dramatics as actress,
director and teacher, will be in charge
of all the productions.
Tickets for "Seven Little Rebels'!

are now on sale in every school and
the Mendelssohn Theatre boxoffice
will open for sale and for exchange
of school tickets for reserved seats
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and to-
