Student Senate
lbissolves After

Skips Her Books to Make Bombers

6 Years Activity
Membership Cut, Budget
Decrease Responsible for
Failure, Landers Says
Decreased membership, budget cut
and recent drafting of four of its
members led to the dissolution of the
Student Sehate, Jim Lahders, presi-
-dent, announced yesterday.
The Senate, organized six years ago
from a parley group directed by Dr.
Edward W. Blakeman; Counselor in
Religious Education, was cut by a
constitutional change last year from
36 to nine members. Its budget was
likewise cut from $60 to $18.
The Senate gained attention this
year in investigating and mediating
in two labor disputes concerning stu-
dents, initiating the present student
Sjeakers Bureau, selling defense
bonds sand stamps, and cooperating
in the Summer Prom to help the
Bomber Scholarship, Chinese and
Russian War Relief programs.
Landers stated concerning the Sen-
ate's dissolution, "We are sorry to
see the abandonment of the Student
Senate, for with it-goes the last cam-
pus-wide freely elected representa-
tive body. . . We hope that in the
near future there will be on the cam-
pus a recognized student government
as the University of Michigan is now
one of-the few large universities with-
out a freely-elected student govern-
ment. ..'
The retiring Senators are: Landers,
'43, president; Elaine Spanger, '43,
secretary; Sid Brower, Dick Orlikoff,
'44, Hermian Hudson, '44, Ken Tay-
lor, '44E, Lewis Saks, '43, Bill Lough-
borough, '43, and Bill Ager, '43.

Miss Florence Pang, 22, Honolulu-born Chinese, is shown torquing

New Course
in Child Care
to Be Offered
Students from Four
Departments to Take
Nursery School Work
Designed to release women for war-
time services and to train workers
for nursery school and child care
programs, the School of Education is
offering a new course in Nursery
School Methods, it was announced
In response to the need for women
with nursery school training for work
in home communities or in desig-
nated schools, D1516 will be opened
as a three-hour credit course for stu-
dents majoring in health, psychology,
sociology and education. Similar non-
credit courses were offered last sem-
ester by the Office of Civilian Defense,
with faculty members volunteering
their services. Installed as a part of
the total school program, the new
course will enable students to receive
college credit, and will send them
back to Office of Civilian Defense
activities or to organized nursery
schools with a more thorough train-
ing background.
Not Professional Teacher Course
"This is not a professional teacher
course," states Mrs. Myrtle Firestone
of the education school. "It is in-
tended to give girls a little training
to help them in family and commun-
ity life."
Instructional materials will be
drawn from studies of child psychol-
ogy, nutrition, health and the fam-
ily. Discussion of the relation of
child care to problems created by the
war; particularly by the employment
of women, will be emphasized. Obser-
vation;of Ann Arbor's nursery schools
is planned to provide familiarity with
techniques for guiding the experi-
ences of the young child in music,
play, language, and the daily rou-
tines of washing, dressing, eating and

tion and instruction, Mrs. Firestone

ogy'- department, Miss Lavina. Mac-

ment, and Miss Lila Miller of the

of pyramided series of arguments
with two men on each side, so ar-
ranged that, as a culmination of each

An emphatic proof that the women
of bomb-shelled Pearl Harbor can
help their men in striking back at
Hirohito, Miss Florence Pang, Hono-
lulu-born Chinese has given up her
studies at Michigan to work on the
Willow Run assembly line.
"I never dreamed I'd ever work on
airplanes," was Miss Pang's comment
after herfirst three weeks of training
fr 'cable rigging in the Ford bomber
plant. 'A graduate student in physical
education at the -University, Miss
Pang is trading books, for war bonds,
but hopes eventually to go back to
Honolulu to teach. Her parents still
live in Honolulu with her two sisters
and five brothers.
"Two of my brothers were working
at Pearl Harbor in December, 1941,"
explains, Miss Pang. "They worked
Monday through Saturday and had
Sunday off.but they're working Sun-
days and every day now!"
This dark-eyed, lightly - freckled


Honolulu girl claims she will be glad
to get back to her home town where
the winters are mild, "nothing below
75'," and where strangers won't stop;
to stare and ask if English is spoken
in Hawaii.
"That's one of my pet peeves," said
Miss Pang with a frown. "We can
speak as much American slang as
anyone in Michigan. If people on the
mainland would only realize that
Hawaii is a part of the United States
-as 'President Roosevelt stated, 'an
integral part'."
Miss Pang lived in Honolulu until
1937 when she came to California to
study at Stockton Junior and Whit-
tier College for four years. Her last
visit home was the summer, before
war broke out, and she heard the
news of Pearl Harbor while here at
The people at home will be greatly
astonished when they hear about her
new job, Miss Pang believes. "But I'm
sure they will heartily approve of it,"
she added. With her two brothers
at Pearl Harbor and another in the
army she feels glad to be able to con-
tribute something.
