Senator George Norris; shown above removing his-nameplate from
his office door yesterday, stayed away from the last session of the c
Senate yesterday. Downcast, he said: "I didn't want to see it die--poor

University s War Role
(Editor's Note: The following statement was released by the
University today.)
The joint Army-Navy program for the utilization of college facilities
in specialized training has just been announced. The institutions which
are to participate in the expanded program have not been named. Thej
University of Michigan does not know, therefore, just what contributions
it will be called upon to make beyond the training it has been providing
for several groups of Army officers and enlisted men for several months.
However, this institution stands ready to make available its facilities,
and, if chosen, will bend every effort to serve the needs of the armed
While the nature of the training required by the Army and Navy"
has not been announced in detail, the emphasis will undoubtedly beplaced
on the basic sciences, mathematics, and the engineering subjects. The
strains thus placed upon the departments concerned will be met, as far as
possible, by a shift in personnel within the University. This will call for
the re-training of some faculty members now engaged in the teaching
of subjects of less military significance.
Even though the University is asked to serve in this capacity, it will,
insofar as its facilities permit, continue to provide training for its women
students and men not called to the armed services.
It is obvious that the University's student population will change
markedly in the months ahead. The draft of men of college age will,
of course, reduce both the total enrollment and the proportion of men
in the student body, although many will undoubtedly be returned for
specialized training under present and future programs.

l ollege MenAr Needed

Give Men Pay
And Quarters
All Army and Navy college reservists will be
placed on active duty - given pay, quarters and uni-
forms - l y the end of the spring semester.
This is the joint Army-Navy plan for intensive
use of college facilities. It is a sweeping training pro-
gram embracing all Army and Navy Reserves and
open to other men with the proper qualifications.
It was released here today by the University.
The first trainees assigned to the Army Spec-
ialized Training Program will begin their studies dur-
ing February, 1943. The Navy has not yet announced
the date on which its plan will begin operation.
Selected universities and colleges designated by
the Army, Navy and War Manpower Commission will
sign contracts providing the use of their facilities and
staff services.
Army Specialized Training Program trainees un-
der military discipline -provided quarters and rations
through college and university facilities under gov-
ernment contract - will be ranked -as privates. Mili-
tary training, subordinated to academic instruction,
will be given to provide maintenance of discipline and
physical condition.
Naval College Training Program men - V-1,
V-5 and V-7 reservists - will go on active duty as ap-
prentice seamen.
This is what will happen to the Army Reserves:
1) Medical and dental students in the Enlisted
Reserve Corps will be placed on active duty in May,
1943 and detailed to medical schools under Army
2) Medical students with commissions will be
placed on active duty in May, 1943. They may re-
sign their commissions and return to medical school
as privates.
3) Pre-medical students in the Enlisted Reserve
Corps will be placed on duty in May, 1943. They may
or may not be given basic military training, but se-
lected candidates will be assigned to contracted medi-
cal schools to be trained. Others will go into Army
service immediately.
4) Medical and pnre-medical students not in the
Enlisted Reserve Corps, or holding commissions will
be deferred until May, 1943, if they are inducted un-
der Selective Service. They will then be placed on
active duty and may or may not be given basic train-
ing. Selected candidates will return to medical schools.
5) Seniors in ROTC will be placed on active
duty in May, 1943, or upon graduation if earlier. They
will then go to Army Officer Candidate Schools.
6) Juniors in the Enlisted Reserve Corps tak-
ing approved engineering courses will be placed on
active duty in May, 1943, given basic military train-
ing and selected candidates will be detailed for tech-
nical training under the Army Specialized Training
7) Juniors in approved engineering courses not
in the Enlisted Reserve Corps, if inducted under Se-
lective Service, will be deferred until May, 1943, to

The joint Army-Navy plans for
the training of college-age men
for the performance of specialized
military tasks have now been re-
leased. It is obvious that the arm-
ed services continue to recognize,
as they always have, the need for
well trained officers for positions
of leadership and, for duties which
demand advanced technical and
professional preparation. They have
said. repeatedly, that they expect

dentistry, medicine, and meteorol-
ogy. Qualities of accurate expres-
sion, incisive thought, and physical
fitness and a capacity for swift,
accurate mathematical computa-
tion are sought by all branches of
the armed forces. A knowledge of
history, American institutions, and
of a foreign language are import-
ant. Consequently, all of the sub-
jects you have been studying will
be useful to you and to the mili-
tary services.
