Specialized training designed to ac-
quaint students with countries of the
Far East likely to be occupied or in
need of assistance due to the war
will be given by the Graduate School
beginning Feb. 8, according to Dr.
Howard B. Calderwood, chairman of
the program.
Instruction in the language, geo-
graphy, history, customs and econ-
omy of Japan, the Philippines, China
and countries of southeast Asia will

Women Course
in Engineering
A course in aeronautical engineer-
ing for women college graduates, pro-
viding pre-employment training with
pay, has been announced by the Gru-
mman Aircraft Engineering Corpor-
atign of Long Island, N.Y.
Training offered includes an eight
week tuition-free course in the ele-
menits of aeronautical engineering at
Columbia University, with text books
costing not more than five dollars,
followed by four weeks of training
in aircraft fabrication and safety ed-
ucation at the Freeport State Avia-
tion School. During this 12 weeks
period apprentices will receive a
weekly salary of $25.
Trainees will then take three
months of advanced aeronautical en-
gineering at the company's Bethpage
plant, receiving $40 to $45 per week
while there. Approved residences will
be recommended by the company.
Upon completion of the course the
women will receive employment in
the Engineering and Production
Planning department in various cap-
acties depending on the abilities,
aptitudes and preferences shown by
the individual during apprenticeship.
Rates of pay will be determined by
demonstrated abilities.
Applicants who have majored in
mathematics, physics, chemistry
architecture or business administra-

Book Exchange Feb. 6 to 11, it was
announced yesterday by Irwin
Straub, '45, Union representative.
The Book Exchange is sponsored
by both the League and Union and is
maintained to buy and sell used text

DETROIT, Jan. 20. -(p)-- Mayor
Edward J. Jeffries, acting at the re-
quest of Army authorities, today or-
dered two large oil tankers which had
been unloading directly into oil
trucks to leave port with their cargo
of 2,000,000 gallons of fuel oil.
HANCOCK, Md., Jan. 20. -- (A) -
Thousands of gallons of precious fuel
oil and gasoline bound for the eastern
seaboard went up in flames today
when nine Western Maryland Rail-
road tank cars wrecked and burned
about a mile west of Hancock.

Future jobs for as many as fifty
University coeds with major U.S. oil
companies were foreseen yesterday by
Prof. Kenneth K. Landes, head of the
geology department and director of
a new course in petroleum geology
for women students. Only four appli-
cations for the course have been re-
ceived up to date.
Of 6 replies received from chief
geologists in oil producing companies
throughout the country, 25 indicated
that within the next year they would
need several girls. Openings range
from .New York to California, with
the greatest need in Texas and Okla-
"While definite guarantees cannot
be given on the wages, the jobs paid
well even before the outbreak of the
war," said Professor Landes. "Start-
ing pay was $150 a month."
Women who complete this inten-
sive twelve-month course will have
a variety of jobs to perform. Many
of them will work in geology offices
on well records, well field maps, and.
well cuttings. Actual field work will
also be included.
Information about the program has
been sent to 900 teachers of geology
in colleges throughout the country
by the University, leader in this field.
The course itself will last for a
year, and a student will obtain as
much academic work in geology dur-
ing this time as she would ordinarily
secure in four and a half years.
Prerequisites for admission to the
program include one year's work in
physical and historical geology (Ge-
ology 11 and 12), and a "B" aver-
age. The former requirement for
trigonometry as a prerequisite has
been eliminated; women who have
not had this mathematical training
may take the course during the first
semester. Forty-six hours of credit
can be earned toward a degree at
the -University or other institutions.
Further information on this pro-
gram may be secured from the geol-
ogy office.
