worst 'depression, the cooperative
movement at the University started
with -,just one house-the present
Michigan House. Opened in 1932, this
house provided room and board at
economic rates for students severely
hit by the hard times.
'From this meager beginning, the
movement has grown continuously
until now there are eleven houses-
eight for men and three for women.
The men's, houses include Congress,
Robert Owen, Guild, Abe Lincoln,
Rochdale, Gabriel Richard, Michigan
and , Stalker. The girls' houses are
Alice Palmer, Muriel Lester and
Katherine Pickerill.
Cooperatives are nationally known
for their exemplification of democra-
cy in action-and the co-ops on the
Michigan campus are no exception.
Following the democratic principles
set by the first cooperative-that of
the weavers of Rochdale, England-
the campus co-ops consider their
complete racial, religious and politi-
cal tolerance as one of their principal
tenets. Membership in all the houses
is open to students of all races, col-
ors and creeds.
The thoroughgoing democracy of
the cooperatives is also marked by
their internal governmental set-up,
each member having one vote in all
elections and issues that arise. Week-
ly house meetings, at which house
problems are thrashed out and de-
cided upon, characterize all the cam-
pus cooperatives.
All the work in the houses-as well
as the governing functions-is done
by the members themselves. Approx-


house accounts, take care of the fin-
ances and do the secretarial work.
By virtue of the fact that all the
work is done by the members of the
house and also by means of efficient
purchasing methods, the co-ops have
managed to keep the rates for room
and board down to about two to six
dollars a week and for board alone
to approximately one and a half to
three dollars.
The central body representing all
eleven co-ops is the Intercooperative
Council. Each house sends two dele-
gates to the ICC, and these delegates
formulate general policy for the co-
operatives and decide on projects to
be undertaken by all the houses col-
lectively. The individual members of
the houses each have a vote in elect-
ing the president of the ICC. The
president for this summer is Harold
Ehlers, '42E.
All students who wish to make in-
quiries about living or boarding at
any of the co-ops next semester

War Found
ROTC Ready
For Crises
When war broke out Dec. 7, the
University could already boast a well
trained ROTC unit that had definite
plans for accelerating training to
meet the emergency.
The small provisional iifle com-
pany, formed last fall to provide
practical outdoor training to those
cadets who desired it, was expanded
and more extensive training offered.
Every Saturday afternoon rough clad
cadets could be seen moving stealthily
about the Arboretum in practice war
Not content with offering field
training to a small group of cadets,
the military science department staff
planned a ,large scale maneuver last
spring in which the entire ROTC unit
participated. The cadets spent an af-
ternoon simulating regimental battle
With the opening of the summer
term, training plans really went into
operation. Quartermaster Corps
training was added to an already
broad schedule of courses, which in-
cludes Infantry, Engineering Ord-
nance and Signal Corps training. The
Quartermaster Corps increases the
advanced corps quota by 50 cadets.
During the summer, training was
made more intensive through the
doubling of the drill periods. Now
cadets basic and advanced, meet for
two hours to practice the manual of
arms and the elements of foot drill.
Blade Society Enlarged
Another innovation brought about
during the summer term was the wid-
ening of the membership of Scabbard
and Blade to include the entire ad-
vanced corps. Acting mostly in a so-
cial capacity the Scabbard and Blade
meets twice a month and promises to
develop into one of the most active
organizations on campus. At the
Northwestern game Scabbard and
Blade members will cooperate with
the NROTC in providing entertain-
ment between the halves. Blade mem-
bers may also be seen conducting re-
treat ceremonies at the campus flag
post on Thursday nights.
