Students Leaving
in February Can
Receive 'Ensians
Students graduating this February
or leaving school for the armed forces
before May. will be able to receive
their 1943 Michiganensians, Ben
Douglas, business manager, said to-
The business staff is now working
on a special mailing plan to make it
possible for every subscriber to receive
his copy no matter where he is. By
simply coming to or calling the bus-
iness office any afternoon and leav-
ing a mailing address anyone can
have their copy mailed when the book
is issued.
The staff is now working on a plan
to have a standard postage charge on
'Ensians. As the situation stands now,
purchasers can have the book mailed
postage due. The contemplated plan
would eliminate the trouble and ad-
ditional expense of this procedure.

Yearbook subscriptions are still
available at the business office. The
price at present is $4.54 but will be
raised to $5.00 in the spring; so late
purchasers are urged to order their
copies now.
Business manager Douglas also ur-
ges any interested upperclassmen to
try out on the business staff now, be-
fore the new semester starts. Work
during January is very heavy and
additional help is needed. The chan-
ces for rising quickly on the business
staff are great, for the staff will be
further reduced in ,February.

publishing a pamphlet next semester

engine school.
Several engineers' smokers, the an-
nual engineers' picnic as well as the
Engineering Banquet will be held as
usual, but all plans for an engineers'
open house or defense exposition will
be forgotten, Howerth said.
