Roster of "U' Men in Service
Will Be on Exhibition in Union

A bulletin board with over 8,000
names-this is the aim of the Union's
war roster committee now compiling
data for a comprehensive summary
of all Michigan men serving in the
anned forces.
The seat of the data will be a huge
bulletin board covering an entire wall
in the Union Cafeteria. The board has
recently been put into position, but
the mammoth task of the committee
headed by Dick Ford, '44, and Art
Geib, '44, is just beginning.
It is their job to glean from a mul-
titude of sources the names, connec-
tion with the University and the
present rank and location of over
8,000 University men now known to
be serving in the armed services.
Through the aid of the Alumni
Catalog ,Office, the compilation has
been progressing for the last two
weeks. The Alumni Catalog Office
now possesses the card files of these
8,000 Michigan men.
Something of this type of war ros-
ter was attempted by the Catalog Of-
fice during and after the last war.
Because news sources were then less
effective and because the project was
begun too late, it failed in its objec-
tive. However, 13,000 names were as-
sembled and classified and are now
on file in the Catalog Office in Alum-
ni Memorial Hall.
Taking heed from their experiences
in the last war, the Catalog Office
1oeg4n its present record right after

Pearl Harbor, realizing what value
such a compilation would be to Uni-
versity history and to Michigan alum-
Thus when the Union conceived the
ideal of a public display-of this kind,
the plan was sent one rung up the
ladder of success by being able to
draw upon the Catalog Office facili-
Digging out this information about
University men in the Army, Navy,
and Marine Corps has uncovered the
fact that 100 Michigan Men have
been listed as killed in action or train-
ing since the war began. Of these
some were reported from Pearl Har-
bor and from the Solomons fighting
The scene in the Union Student
Offices in the next few weeks will be
one of feverish typing. The combina-
tion of a lack of typists and over
8,000 cards to be typed, makes the
task of completing the war roster all
the more mammoth.
Said DicC Ford, "The challenge
that this job presents will make us
work all the harder to complete it.
All we need is a little aid."
To keep the records up to date,
Union officials are asking that all
information about University men
now fighting be directed to Ford or
Present plans indicate that names
will start going up before the end of
the month and the board will be filled
by the middle of January.

Town Meeting
Will Present
Seeking to determine campus opin-
ion in regard to suggested plans for
post-war international organization,
the Michigan Post-War Council will
present a "Town Meeting" Tuesday
at the Rackham Amphitheatre.
The meeting will be keynoted by
Mary Borman, Manpower Corps chief,
who will be followed in turn by for-
mer students who have made intens-
ive investigations of the more promi-
nent of the projected plans. The plans
include Pox Victorarium, The Modi-
fied League of Nations, Federations
of Regional Sovereignty, and World-
Wide Government.
Following the formal addresses, the
floor will be opened to discussion. As
a climax of the meeting, votes will be
cast on the plan considered to be
most suitable in its general outline.

A truck breakdown almost caused
a calamity for the Gargoyle staff, but
the crisis is over and Garg editors can
stop tearing their hair long enough
to say, "Yes, the December issue will
be on campus Tuesday.'
Garg's photo-filled pages, fresh
from the printers in Detroit, were on
their way to the bindery yesterday
when the breakdown occurred. Anxi-
ety quickly spread throughout the
Garg office, but soon the pages were
speeded on again and the excited
staff could settle down to normal.
Worried, too, were the fans and
followers of Mike Dann, '43, who
nakes his debut this month as Gar-
goyle's "Preposterous Person." Mike,
the "only man in history born putting
a silver spoon in his mouth" claims
to be a "balanced guy-a very bal-
anced guy," and if you can take in his
list of amazing activites, ranging all
the way from newspaper reporting to
cultivating house mothers, you'll be

Extension Service
Faces Problem
of Room Shortage
With classes being held in the lob-
by, lounge, banquet hall and even the
offices of the director, the University
Extension Service is now faced with
the annoying problem of where to
place all the people who have enrolled
in their courses at the Horace Rack-
ham Educational Memorial in De-
Although the building appeared
quite adequate to take care of the
registrants in the various extension
programs, it was found after the fall
classes met for the first time that
more provisions would have to be
made for the 2,700 persons enrolled.
950 of these enrollees had entered the
War Training Program, while 1,750
had registered in the regular pro-

Union Bureau Alleviates
Transportation Shortage
Are you driving anywhere from
Ann Arbor before vacation?
The Union staff thought this a silly

question too, considering gas ration-
ing and the like, but a recent survey
in connection with Union's new Tra-
vel Bureau has uncovered some inter-
esting facts.
The student staff of the Union
established this Travel Bureau last
week in an attempt to aid persons
leaving Ann Arbor for the Christmas
holidays. It was further designed to
alleviate the transportation crisis on
the railroads.
Response has been terrific. There
are persons driving from Ann Arbor
within the next week. They have
signed up with the Travel Bureau to
take passengers going in their direc-
tion. .
