Who Dunnit? Ask Gals
As Painters Quench Fire
A wastebasket fire, breaking out in
the women's lounge of the West Med-
ical Building, and filling the hall and
classrooms with smoke, caused unex-
pected excitement for 100 students
early yesterday afternoon.
Two painters already had the blaze
well under control when firemen ar-
rived to finish the job.
"That's the first time I ever saw a
metal towel rack on fire," remarked
Captain Heller of the Fire Depart-
ment, as he commented on the origin
of the blaze. It evidently was caused
by a careless coed tossing a cigarette
into the wastebasket and thus ignit-
ing a towel rack, the only object
actually seen on fire.

Get Bike License,
Warn Local Police
Ninety percent of the bicycles
stolen in Ann Arbor are owned by
careless University students, accord-
ing to Walter Schmid of the Police
Reasons for 'this high percentage
of losses, said Schmid, are that stu-
dents are particularly careless in
locking their property and they do
not take advantage of the licensing
service offered at a nominal cost by
the city. Failure in the latter re-
spect makes it almost impossible for
police to identify recovered bicycles.
Adding that thieves are not likely
to steal licensed bicycles because they
are too easily identified, Schmid
urged all bike-owning students who
have not yet done so to register their
property with the License Bureau im-
Although the response to the an-
nouncement making Union life mem-
bership pins available has met with
unexpected response, there are still
200 pins available for distribution,
according to David Striffler, '43, new
secretary of the Union.

need about 1,000 additional personnel

"In a recent survey conducted by the
Michigan State Civil Service Com-
mission," Litchfield said, "we found
that the schools and colleges in the
country during the next year will
train only about one-eighth as many
personnel administrators as will be
The survey also showed, he said,
that over 700 organizational analysts
will be needed by various governmen-
tal units, whereas the schools will
train less than one-fourth of those
needed in 1943.
The University, which has in the
past given courses for graduates in
the field of public administration, has
made these courses available for up-
perclassmen. Completion of either
