EY'RE IN THE ARMY NOW
Iifmapower Demend Reduce
iNuber of College Faculty Mii
Wartime demand for trained man-
power has cut the number of college-
faculty men by seven-and-a-half per
cent in American colleges and uni-
versities, an Office of Education Sur-
vey reported this week.
Armed forces and government and
war industry jobs absorbed most of
8,000 men teachers who resigned their
jobs, between 1941-42 the survey indi-
cated. An increase- of 1.3 per cent in
women teachers was found.
Data collected from about half of
the country's institutions of higher
learning showed a number of signifi-
cant changes dues to the pinching of
the supply of faculty men.
Instructors who have remained at
their posts are working much longer
hours, the survey disclosed. Certain
courses have been entirely discon-
tinued, and 172 colleges reported re-
tention of staff members beyond the
Forty-five students submitted 50
manuscripts in the annual Freshman
Hopwood Contest, Prof. Roy W. Cow-
den, director of the Hopwood Room,
Compared to the 1942 total, there
were 14 fewer contestants and 17
fewer manuscripts. Seventeen stu-
dents are competing for the cash
awards in prose fiction, while there
were 23 last year. Twenty essays have
been submitted, compared to 13 last
year; the poetry entries have re-
mained the same at 13.
Judges for the contest are Prof.
Arno L. Bader and Prof. Louis I.
Bredvold of the English department,
College of Literature, Science, and
the Arts, and Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
director of the University of Michigan
Winners of the $50, $30, and $20
awards will be announced early in the
usual retirement age. Some even are

ing semester, Dorman said, and will
be able to plan their own working
hour schedules with the restaurants.
There is still room for more who wish
to do this kind of work, he said.
Still on the tentative list, but of-
fering great potential possibilities, is
a project being planned by Mr. Ed-
ward C. Pardon, superintendent of
the Buildings and Grounds depart-
ment, in co-operation withManpower
Corps. It calls for the establishment
of a factory to turn out vital war
parts here on campus. If carried
through, Michigan would be the first
university in the country to make
such a concrete addition to the war
effort. Workers in the plant, accord-
ing to publicity agent Cole, would
require little or no experience.
While announcing the projects
scheduled for next semester, Cole also
reported on the activities of the Man-
power Corps during the first three
months of existence. Among its ac-
complishments since it was set up in
October are the' carrying out of the
largest college scrap drive in the
country, formation of the Midwest
Student War Council, sponsoring of
the 42 Finale, aiding in the sugar
beet harvest, and the removal of two
huge boilers for the Navy, Cole indi-
