reiterated yesterday.
Election of senior officers will be

that they will elect their officers in
their own manner, the Council added.
Candidates to be interviewed must

tuined them in with their petition.
Balloting will take place from 1 to

time to traveling about the state
helping to develop community pro-
grams concerning war issues. Much
in demand as a speaker by civic or-
ganizations, he makes good use of
forensic abilities which won him third
place in the National Oratorical Con-
test in his college days.
Prof. McClusky is highly interested
in the educational program and is
convinced of its importance. "This
program," says Prof. McClusky, "is
a clear indication on the part of
the government that the discussion
of war and post-war problems by the
public is a valuable supplement to
the military effort and not a hin-
drance as some have said. It is defi-
nitely not a propaganda but an edu-
cational program under government
sponsorship to encourage people to
take an active .interest in war and
post-war problems."
Government Service Not New
Government service of this type is
not at all new to Prof. McClusky
whose work in educational psychology
has made him an outstanding figure
in that field. For six months prior
to his return to Ann Arbor this se-

Waterman said that not only those
business students planning to enter

"More and more women are inquiring
as to the possibilities of taking courses

The 'college of the future' is' al-
ready in the mold and, according to
the predictions of Dean J. B. Edmon-
son of the education school, will
emerge from its 'ivory tower' cocoon
into an efficient post-war institution.
Prediction Number One by Dean_
Edmonson is that industry, which
has already expanded its training
program in recent months, will con-
tinue to provide elaborate educational
measures in the post-war period.
Some of this expansion, he pointed
out, is very likely to be in competi-
tion with older colleges.
The military will also have a heavy
influence on tomorrow's campus, ac-
cording to Dean Edmnonson, for the
armed forces are emphasizing the

ever before. Particular importance

ing-an emphasis which soldiers will
remember after the war. Already
the armed forces have developed ex-
tensive plans for educational pro-
grams during the war period and
during the anticipated era of armed
Pointing out the many educational
courses sponsored by governmental
agencies, Dean Edmonson made his
second prediction-that the federal
government will continue to provide
a variety of educational programs in
the post-war period, either in cooper-
ation with schools or acting inde-
pendently of them.
"I am convinced," said the Dean,
"that there is a strong trend toward
further participation of Federal gov-
eriment in education, and it will
continue as a permanent policy."
His third prediction-that the fa-
cilities of institutions such as the
University of 1\ichigan, will be taxed
to the utmost in the post-war period'
-is based on the possibility that the'
financial strain of a'long war may,
decrease the number of colleges. "If'
the war continues for several years,"
observed the Dean, "this will result
in an increase of demands on the re-
maining colleges. In all probability
the Universities will be called to offer
all the present programs of instruc-
tion plus many new ones."
Allaying' the fears of many who pic-
ture the college of the future as a'
technical training school, Ilean Ed-
monson said that while there will
be increased empha$is on technical
prognams, he did notbelieve this de..-
velopment will undermine interest in
general education and the studies of
the humanities.

Controls to Offset
Change in -Garment
Costs for Spring
WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. -- (P) -
OPA had good and bad news for
housewives today. It authorized
slightly higher prices for 16 grocery
products, but predicted substantially
unchanged prices next spring for wo-
men's, girls' and children's garments.
Increased material and labor costs
in the garment field will be offset
largely by controls over manufactur-
ers' margins of profit and selling
prices; the Office of Price Adminis-
tration said. OPA prescribed pricing
methods for manufacturers, and said
it shortly would iss'ue methods of es-
tablishing retailers' and wholesaletrs'
"When ceiling provisions for all
sales levels are completed, OPA ex-
pects that each dollar spent by the
ultimate consumer will buy certain
values reresenting materials and la-
bor involved in producing feminine
' garments equivalent to those' of the
1942 spring and summer seasons," the
announcement said.
Manufacturers in most instances
must reduce their March, 1942, mark-
up by 10 per cent.
OPA said it authorized the grocery
increases, effective Dec. 18; to relieve
a "sclueeze" on wholesalers and' re-
tailers as a result of price increases
previously allowed manufacturers.
Wholesalers and retailers may pass
on to consumers only the exact
amount of the packer's price in-
creases. Items on which increases'
will be permitted included caned
apples, apple sauce, apple juice, ne-
gar cured herring, canned boned
chicken and turkey, maple sugar,
fountain fruits, blended maple syrup,
egg noodles, tamales, potato chips,
raisin filled or topped- biscuits and
crackers, fig bars, peanut candy, and
extracted honey.
Other OPA actions:
Ordered reductions in excessive
ceilings for bananas, establishing
maximuin prices for importers, auc-
tion markets and wholesalers and
promising a new retail pricing meth-
od soon.
Third French
Lecture Set
In the third French lecture Prof.
Michael Pargment will relate the
amazing story of a famous French
tragic actress. The lecture, entitled
"Un Prodige de la Scene Francais:
1Mile. Rachel", will be given at 4:15
p.m, Wednesday in Room D, Alumni
At an early age, without educa-
tion, without social or family back-
ground and with but a scant knowl-
edge of the French language, Mle.
Rachel was able to revive the mas-
terpieces of the great French classi-
cal writers. She gave them nwe
splendor and kept them on the stage
throughout her entire dramatic ca
reer in spite of the rich blossoming
of the Romantic school.
