High School Students
To Help War Effort

Office of Education To
Guide Future Workers
(Continued from Page 1)
tailored to their individual situations.I
Jager set forth three primary ob-
jectives of the plan:
1. That each high school take an
inventory of its enrollment begin-
ning with the men who will leave
first to determine for the students
their particular educational train-
ing, whether in school or out.
2. To provide for students ade-
quate information about the criti-
cal needs of the nation in military
and civilian areas.
3. Provide a counseling service
for students so that each student
will have the assistance of a qual-
ified adult in determining how he
can make the greatest possible con-
tribution toward winning the war.
"At present," Jager pointed out.
"there are two millian students leav-
ink secondary schools each year. They
must be informed of both military
and civilian needs and they should be
aided in making their decisions."
In conjunction with this plan the
U.S. Office of Education has prepared
an Education Experience Summary
which is being forwarded to each
high school through state depart-
ments of education.
This form will contain an objective
record of each individual's abilities
and background which he can keep
with him. The Army has approved
this form and five million forms have
already been printed.
"The needs of the multi-military
and civilian agencies have made it
necessary that we use this new man-
power (the two million students per
year) in their most effective capacity
in the war machine," Jager said.
This program is only a suggested
plan that individual states have been
asked to consider. Plans in many

states are now v? ell underway.
J. M. Trytten, principal of Univer-
sity High School,. reports that his
school has had a :program in effect
which gives a meas 're of the student's
ability. "Our pror"am will be ex-
panded," he said, "to cover the broad
outlines of the new arrangement."
High Officials of the Army, WMC,
Food Administratioi ', Selective Ser-
vice, the Army's Pre-nduction Train-
ing Division, the Natonal Council of
War Service for Nursyrig, and the U.S.
Office of Educatiort 'took part in the
conference and pwc'sented the case
to their agencies in relation to using
high school manpower.
This is the first time that a feder-
al agency has channeled a request
through thte State Departments of
Education for assistance.

Dr. Free will comment on three
issues: "Can your faith stand the
searchlight of Archaeological inves-

our attitude toward the Bible?; Crit-
ical theories in the light of 20th cen-
tury discoveries." The lecture will
be illustrated with colored movies
taken of these investigations.
SThe lecture series is, sponsored by
the Committee for Dynamic Chris-
tianity, a non-sectarian student or-
ganization. Dr. Joseph L. Hromadka,
brilliant European scholar and guest
professor at Princeton Seminary, will

"Brazil is a democracy not because
the people in general are conscious

yesterday in clarification of his lec-
ture Wednesday on Brazil.
"We are not, politically speaking,
as mature as the United States," he

He added that Vargas is not a dic-
tator of the type that Is generally
referred to as such,
He was put into office by a revo-
lution that was brought about by
the previous presidents of the re-
public, and not by Vargas himself,
with the purpose of establishing the
true principles of political democ-
racy. He was kept in office, da Cruz
said, 'by the fact of a historic deter-
minism beyond anybody's control
that is stronger than Vargas' ideas
or, disposition.
He also made the humorous re-
mark that Vargas, having been in
office for twelve years, was trying
to lkeep ahead of Roosevelt, and he
