Fund For Students
Pays TWo Million
In"Loans To Date
Established in 1897 by University
Alumni and other persons interested
in 'assisting needy students, the Stu-
dent Loan Fund has furnished loans
totalling over $2,115,000 during its
To borrow money from this fund it
is necessary for students to file an
application with the Committee on
Student t'oans, stating such facts as
the amount of money desired, per-
sonal history and estimated yearly
budgets. A low rate of interest is
charged in order that a reserve may
be created for replacing loans uncol-
lected because of death, illness or
similar reasons and so that loans in
existence may be enlarged for future
Loans are ordinarily payable in
installments, but if circumstances
prevent'a student from meeting his
payments, it is his duty to communi-
cate with the proper officials, ex-
plain his difficulties and requesting
an extension of time.

Law Program To Be Continued
Despite Reduced Enrollment

A pair of Pennsylvania-born iden-
tical twins who have traveled in In-
dia and Tibet are using thei' knolw-1
edge of the out-of-doors by teaching
University students the skills needed
on the' jungle battlefronts of this
John and )'rank Craighead are
the twins and they 'have been'trying
to satisfy the need cited by a recent-
War Department communique for
such outdoor-trained men by teach-
'ing a course designed to develop the
skills our fighting men,; wil n'eed:
when battling viand-to-hand with
Jap shock troops in the Pacific. The
course is called Physical Education
for Men 39. The twins are also work-
ing in the University zoology depart-

ment for their Ph.D. degrees in game
In Fits statement, the War Depart-
ment pointed out that "Valuable fli-
ers, 'downed in combat, with a
knowledge of woodcraft, edible plants
and natural environment, can read-
ily survive and find their base with
a little experience in isolated living."
In an effort to teach students
'these skills, the Craigheads have di-
vided their course into two coordi-
nated sections. The "-foxhole com-
bat" side of the course gives students
training in hand-to-hand fighting
techniques while the- "outdoor skills"
section concentrates on learning how
to. survive in the wilderness.
More emphasis is laid on'the latter
course and 'an effort is made to simu-

. ri


late the exact conditions an isolated
American soldier might find. In or-
der to teach the student to adapt
himself to unfamiliar country the
student is taken toarcompletely iso-
lated spot. From there he must pro-
ceed to a given destination by use of'
a topographic map, the only aid he
is allowed. Michigan bogs particu-
larly lend themselves to the kind of
training needed in the swampy and
jungle-filled South Pacific islands.
After several weeks of this sort of
training, a student is expected to be
able to traverse ten miles by topo-
graphic map, making full use of con-
tours, lakes, streams, forest types,
and varied elevations to find his po-
sition speedily and correctly.
For men who are assigned to for-
est, jungle or scouting duty, the
course provides instruction in pack
making and loading. In order to,
lighten the pack by economizing on
space, the Craigheads have experi-
mented with dried food that is- both
light and nutritious. Instruction is
given in river and stream navigation
that includes canoeing, shooting rap-
ids, righting upsets and moving si-
lently along waterfronts.
John and Frank Craighead are es-
pecially qualified to teach such a
course because they are trained in
almost every phase of outdoor activ-
ity. After taking numerous camping
trips and exploring expeditions, the
boys wrote about their experiences
in the Saturday Evening Post, Na-
tional Geographic, American Forest
and various other publications of the
outdoor world while they were jun-
iors in high school. The articles cov-
ered falconry, canoeing, camping,
hiking, hunting and were well illus-
trated with photographs taken by
the twins. Frank does most of the
camera work.
Two years ago, deciding that they
had had enough of school, the two
boys traveled to India, Tibet and
other Far Eastern points. They were
house guests of Prince Dharmarku-
marsinhji or Bhavnagar of India for
three months. The Prince taught
the twins native hunting methods of
stalking game, of hiding in the dense
Indian jungles, of silently tracking
prey, both human and animal. This
was invaluable, training for their
present work.
Among the other things seen in
India by the Craighead twins were
three-day wedding feasts, solid sil-
ver howdahs, strange sects who kill
no animals, fairy tale palaces with
unearthly beauty and splendor, hin-
du turbans and Mohammedan fezzes.
When interviewed last year (be-
fore Pearl Harbor), the boys said,
"We want to go back. We want to
rough it in the Himalayas . . . it's
the most wonderful thing we've ever
seen . . . just like another world."
Now they add another sentence. "We
want to go back . . . after we beat
the Japs."

Although the enrollment in the
Law School will' be reduced below
normal by the war service of law
students, all of the regular Law
School programs and activities will
be conducted as usual for the dura-
tion of hostilities. The usual courses
will be offered, although certain ex-
tra sections normally available in
some of the larger courses are being
All of the related activities such as
the Law Review, the Case Clubs, and
the Lawyers Club, will operate in
normal fashion. Rigorous and com-
plete training in law is as essential
for those who graduate in war time
as under normal conditions.
A satisfactory school enrollment is
expected, although the uncertainties
caused by the demand for soldiers
under the Selective Service Act make
a numerical estimate impossible.
Practically all law students are col-
lege graduates, . hence they have
reached the age of eligibility under
the Act. Moreover, large numbers of
them have enlisted in various bran-
ches of the sei'vice.
The Judge Advocate General's De-
partment of the United States Army
has recently accepted an invitation
to establish in the Law Quadrangle
its training school for the Army's
legal advisers. The officers in this
school will be quartered in the Law-
yers Club utilizing space not needed,
because of reduced enrollment, by
the regular law students.
More than 4,000 men and women
have been graduated so far from the
Engineering Science and Manage-
ment War Training program under
the sponsorship of the United States
Office of Education and the Univer-
sity of Michigan since the program's
inception in the spring of 1941.
The program, which includes
about 125, part-time and full-time
courses, is being given at a total
cost of $190,000, made available
through the Federal Government,
and serves to train civilians to ac-


tively participate in the war effort.
The full-time courses which are
being offered to men and women not
involved in actual college work, last
from 10 to 24 weeks and require
from 36 to 48 hours of work per
