ON THE HOME FRONT:

pronounced daily,

it follows that

training in secondary schoolh should
undergo certain wartime adjustments
also.
The Ann Arbor public schools have
been among the first to institute defi-
nite changes. which will train stu-
dents for specific wartime purposes.
The Committee on School and
Community recently issued a conclu-
sive bulletin for parents of Ann Arbor
school children which states clearly
the changes which the public schools
have made in this direction. Definite
adjustments are most notably evi-
denced in the high school, where it is
possible to give specialized training
for war jobs and military service.
Recognizing this need and meeting
the demands of an increased enroll-
ment, the Ann Arbor High School
has made the following changes:*
1. A revised time schedule to ac-
commodate the bus companies in
staggering their loads, and also to
release more students for work after
school hours.
2. Modifications in curricula ac-
cording to demands enumerated by
the government. These courses will
meet college demands but are in the
nature of pre-induction courses:
a. An expanded physical education
program which meets the govern-
mental physical fitness program.
b. An introduction to aviation sci-
ence.
c. Courses in shop mathematics

ing.
e. The departments of history and
literature will stress material which
permits students to follow intelligent-
ly the progress of the war and its
outcome.
In the junior high school revisions
are less specific and changes consist,
mainly of an adjustment of empha-
sis. The athletic program promotes
physical fitness, as requested by the
government.
The importance of mathematics
and communication through English
and spelling is emphasized, while in
the home economics department, girls
are taught the best methods 6f utiliz-
ing food and materials rationed by
the government.
These same principles are being
carried out in the elemeintary schools
to a lesser degree. Most important
is the training in practical patriotism
which is being given to these younger
children. A full sense of their posi-
tion as useful citizens of the country
is imparted.
In all Ann Arbor public schools,
students are not only concentrating
on a full wartime schedule but are
also bringing in scrap and buying
stamps and bonds. In the drive last
fall they collected the equivalent of
77 pounds of scrap per student and
by the end of 1942 had bought $37,350
worth of bonds.

Various methods of determining
reasons for absences which have been
suggested lately, according to Prof.
Riegel, are as follows:
(1) A written statement by the
employee when he gets his time card
upon return to work.
(2) Interview by the foreman or a
personnel department representative
after the employee returns to work.
Interview by the nurse or physician,
in illness cases.
(3) Interview at the employee's
home on the second or third day of
absence.
Among suggestions for remedies
for absenteeism offered by Prof. Rie-
gel were general appeals to the work-
ers, individual appeals, attendance
bonuses and prizes, and penalties,
such as the lay-off penalty.
"Workers should be acquainted
with the military importance of the
products they make,"'concluded Prof.
Riegel. "Furthermore, each worker
should be shown his own individual
importance in the general scheme of
production. Displays of the finished
product are a help if they are per-
mitted by the military authorities."
Prof. Riegel has recently completed
an article on absenteeism with mater-
ial gathered at a series of conferences
on personnel management and war
industries which were held in Detroit
from October, 1942 to February, 1943.
A list of the topics discussed are
being sent to two hundred war plants
throughout the country, according to
Prof. Riegel, and a summary of the
principal points brought out in each
discussion may be ordered from the
Bureau of Industrial Relations by
these plants.

Dr. Winifred Cullis, head of the
Women's Section of the British In-
formation Services in America, will
speak at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre before
the American Association of Uni-
versity Women.
Dr. Cullis is Professor Emeritus of
Physiology at the University of Lon-
don and has a distinguished record
of service to her country in medi-
cine, public welfare and education.
She served as president to the
International Federation of Univer-
sity Women, and is chairman of the
education committee of the English
Speaking Union, and a director of
the weekly review: "Time and Tide."
During World War I, Dr. Cullis
worked for the government in the
War Savings Campaign and for the
Nation Council for Combating Ve-
nereal Disease. She has traveled
widely in Europe, America, and
throughout the Empire as a repre-
sentative of Great Britain.
She went to India in 1937, as the
only woman member of a delegation
of fifty to celebrate the Silver Jubi-
lee of the Indian Science Congress.
In 1940 and 1941, Dr. Cullis went,
as a representative of her govern-
ment, to carry a message to the
women of the Far East. Shortly
after her return to Britain in 1941,
she was invited to join the British
Information Services in America.

MOVIE'Y&F'/IPwS

At the Iichigan . ,
Now in the second half of its week-
long run at the Michigan is "Yankee
Doodle Dandy", the story of the life
of George M. Cohan.
High on every ten-best list, the
picture was the vehicle for James
Cagney's Academy Award perform-
ance of the life of the great show-
man of the stage. Also included in
the star-studded cast are Joan Les-
lie as Mrs. Cohan and Walter Huston
as his father, the senior member of
the Four Cohans.
Woven together with the pattern
of Cohan's life, the film was high-
lighted by scenes from some of his
more famous productions such as
"George Washington, Jr.," and of a
more recent nature, "I'd Rather Be
Right", in which he impersonates
the President.
Also hailed by the critics for her
performance of Cohan's sister is
Jean Cagney, James Cagney's sister
in real life.

At the State...
"Eyes in the Night", the thrilling
tale of a love affair which brought
terror in its wake, is the screen fare
which opens at the State today.
Starring Edward Arnold and Ann
Hardirg, the picture also includes
such stellar performers as Donna
Reed, Katherine Emery, Reginald
Denny, Allen Jenkins and Friday
himself. The plot deals with a hero-
ine. Ann Harding, who is confronted
by invaders in her very home, trusted
servants who turn out to be killers,
and murder in the dark.
Directed by Fred Zinnemann, the
picture was produced by Jack Cher-
tok.
Also on the same bill with "Eyes
in the Night" are a patriotic short,
"Mr. Smug," George Olsen and the
Mills Brothers in "Hit Tune Jam-
boree" and the world news.
