Student from,
Brazil Writes
Book on U.S.
Dr. Oswaldo Trigueiro, a Brazilian
exchange fellowship student who re-
ceived his master's degree -in 19401
after a year's study here, has recently
published a report in Brazil on "Thej
State Regime in the American Un-
According to a letter received by
Prof. Everett S. Brown of the political
science department from Dr. Tri-
gueiro, the book, a result of his work
in Ann Arbor, 'is the first Brazilian
work on government institutions of
the United States.
Dr. Trigueiro added in his letter,
"I hope that my book will contribute
to make better known here, and con-
sequently better esteemed, the funda-
mental aspects of American democra-
The good-will neighbor policy in-
volved is obvious, he said. Any bond
that will tie the United States and
South American countries more close-
ly together is of extreme importance
at the present time.
This work of Dr. Trigueiro, who is
at present a director of Instito Bra-
zil-Estados Unidos in Rio de Janeiro,
is significant of the value of exchange
fellowships between North and South
America, Prof. Brown said.


University Adult Education
Prograin Aids 'War Effort

Among the less-spectacular but
nevertheless vital war activities on
the University campus is the work
of adapting four years of research
and demonstration in adult education
to wartime needs.
Information about rationing, tax-
ation, price control and the econom-
ics of war on the home front are all
distributed from the office of Dr.
Howard Y. McClusky of the School of
Education. Fourbyears ago Dr. Mc-
Cdusky, a member of the staff, was
appointed in charge of adult educa-
For the past year he has been de-
voting most of his time in this field,
working a' great deal in Washington
with the American Youth Commis-
sion and the Office of Civilian De-
Aids Communities
The Adult Education Program aids
communities in self-help and gives
advice and guidance. In addition to
the above problems accentuated or
created by the war, it also assists in
the training and counseling of new
leaders, the preparation of new ma-
terials and distribution of already ex-
isting materials.
Since it is a program of facilita-
tion, Dr. McClusky and his associates

prefer to work through existing or-
ganizations in the community, such
as defense councils, which are al-
ready started. The services of the
Adult Education Program are never
imposed upon a community but are
offered to those who wish help.
Radio programs every week on
WKAR further stimulate local activ-
ities. The series, called "Community
In Action,' is now concentrating on
war issues and their effects on our
towns and cities.
Distributed Pamphlets
On the University campus the pro-
gram has distributed pamphlets re-
lating to the war and post-war issues.
These are available in the general li-
brary or at the Speakers' Bureau.
Dr. McClusky lists some of the
areas related to the war with which
the Adult Education Program will
cope as: problems of youth, organi-
zation of community defense work,
and recreation in the home, including
neighborhood war clubs and discus-
sion groups.
One of the primary objectives of
the program is to demonstrate that
the University can contribute to-
wards winning the war by facilita-
ting more and effective participation
in the war effort on the part of the
general population.
AIEE Holds
Annual Banqu et
Bailey, Baer Address
Engineering Society
Members of the American Institute
of Electrical Engineers, gathered at
the Michigan League for their annual
banquet last night, were addressed by
Prof. Benjamin F. Bailey, chairman
of the Department of Electrical Engi-
neering, and Prof. Louis A. Baier, of
the marine engineering department.
Prof. Baier, speaking on the "In-
tangible Rewards of Engineering,"
pointed out that it is the feeling of
creation rather than motives of mon-
ey or power that bring the greatest
satisfaction to the engineer. Dr. Bai-
ley concluded with a short "Farewell
to Seniors."
Bob Ehrlich, '43E, acted as toast-
master, while entertainment was pro-
vided by Ken Moehl, '43E.
Usually held in the Spring the ban-
quet was moved up this year so that
seniors graduating in February would
be able to attend. A second precedent
was broken when AIEE members elec-
ted new officers last night instead of
later in the semester.
These are: president, John Duff,
'43E; vice-president; Jules Needle,
'43E; treasurer, Sylvester P. Gentile,
'43E; Engineering Council representa-
tive, William Ryan, '43E.
Senior Engineering

All seniors in the College of Engi-
neering who are graduating this Feb-
ruary must pay their class dues by
next Wednesday, reports Freemar
Alexander, '43E, class treasurer.

They may be paid to any of the clas
officers, Fred Betzel, president; Ji

urer; or to the Treasurer of the En-
gineering Council, Carl Reed.

Women's Cooperative
Increased demands by women stu-
dents for accommodation in coopera-
tive houses and a dwindling number
of men on campus have led to thej
conversion of Rochdale House from]
a men's cooperative to one for wo-
men, starting next semester, making
a total of four girls' and five boys'
co-ops on campus.]

jBicycles to Be'.
rSold by Police
Adding a further warning to those
University students who have not
claimed their lost or stolen bicycles,
Walter Schmid, of the Police Depart-
ment, said yesterday that "the de-
partment will hold a sale of these
bicycles about the middle of February
in order to relieve it of storage diffi-
Schmid said that recent Daily arti-
cles are responsible for at least a
dozen recovered vehicles, but that a
large number still remain in storage.
He emphasized that a particular
nuisance has arisen because certain
students have left for the armed for-
ces without reporting to the Police
I Department that they had recovered
their bicycles and given them to their'
roommates or friends.

Chinese Rebuiding
Bombed Universities
Education in wartime China,
though operating under grave diffi-
culties, is actually expanding its
scope, according to Donald Chang,
engineering student who recently ar-
rived from Chungking.
Chang said thaw new universities
had been established in the. Chinese
capital since the beginning of the war
to replace those blasted out of exis-
tence by the Japanese.
Chang, who attended one of these
war-born universities, commented al-
so upon the fortunate situation of
American students in contrast to that
of Chinese students, who operate with
inadequate equipment, housing, and
even insufficient food.
