of Appointments and Occupational
Information will be held April 30,
and May 1, at the Rackham Build-
ing, Mr. Luther T. Purdom an-
nounced yesterday.
In consideration of the problem
the meeting will emphasize four fac-
tors of major importance:
1. Opportunities in the types of
work which are in greatest demand
during the war.
2. Abilities and training required
for employment, promotion, and suc-
cess in those jobs.
3. Demonstrations of tests, and
techniques for the measurements of
the required abilities and training for
placement in defense jobs and the
armed services.
4. Practical guidance programs
which the public and vocational
schools can adopt that will be of most
direct assistance to those they are
The meeting which is held in re-
sponse to the defense industries, gov-
ernment agencies, and schools, who
are continually calling on the Bureau

placement problems, will bring to-
gether high and vocational school
principals, in additionato guidance
councilors from all over the state.
The second meeting sponsored by
the Bureau, which will be a luncheon
and afternoon conference on April

Fiery arguments with a non-re-
sponsive recording may not coincide
with the old-fashioned conception of
debating, but debates by transcrip-
tion are the most recent device cre-
ated to combat wartime shortages.
The plan as evolved by the mem-
bers of Sigma Rho Tau, engineering
speech society, seeks to escape gas
rationing restrictions by holding
"record debates" with their newly-
founded chapter at Houghton.
Each squad will transcribe several
speeches and a neutral judge will de-
cide the winner. Professor Robert
Brackett, founder of the society, said
that this is an entirely new procedure
and he hopes that it will stimulate
debate between the other nine chap-
ters throughout the country.
The idea of these long-distance de-
bates was decided upon at Tuesday's
meeting which was devoted to reor-
ganization plans for this semester.
The following officers were elected:
Millard Griffiths, president; Jerry
Goldman, vice-president; Paul Hilde-

For the first time second-semester
freshmen will be eligible for member-
ship on the council, and all houses
will be asked to send one underclass-
man to the first meeting of this staff
at 5:30 p.m. Monday.

tiate ineligible men, including fresh-
,men, must be submitted to the IFOC

Speakers' Bureau
Names Chairman
Virginia White, '44, speech major
in radio, has been appointed co-
chairman of the Student Speakers'
Bureau to work with Nancy Filstrup,
Prof. Kenneth G. Hance, faculty ad-
viser of the Bureau, said yesterday.
A member of the Alpha Chi Omega
sorority, Miss White ' has also been
active in Athena, honorary speech
society, and in League activities.
The Speakers' Bureau was organ-
ized last winter to furnish student
volunteer speakers for various so-
cieties and groups interested in hav-
ing war and post-war problems dis-
cussed. At present there are twenty-
five active members of the Bureau.
Activities of the Bureau are coor-
dinated by the Board of Directors,
which includes representatives of the
three honorary speech societies,
Athena, Zeta Phi Eta, and Alpha Nu,
the Post-War Council, and the

brandt, treasurer; and Coral DePries-
ter, recording secretary.
Prof. Brackett, of the engineering
English department, said that while
Sigma Rho Tau is a comparatively
new organization, it is already one of
the largest of its kind in the country.

NLRB Acquits'
Ford Company
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.-(/P)-The
National Labor Relations Board, re-
versing a trial examiner's findings
has ruled that the Ford Motor Com-
pany's distribution of allegedly anti-
union pamphlets at its Chicago plant
in 1937 did not constitute unfair la-
bor practice.
Dismissing a complaint by the CIO
United Automobile Workers, the
board noted that the pamphlets were
distributed almost six years ago and
since then the company had signed a
bargaining contract with the union.
The distribution, the Board held,
"does not warrant a finding of inter-
ference, restraint and coercion" un-
der the National Labor Relations Act
and "the trial examiner's finding to
the contrary is reversed."
The Board upheld the trial exam-
iner in ruling that the dismissal of
certain employes at the Chicago
plant was not an unfair laor prac-
Churchill Ill; Critics
Seek Special Cahinet
LONDON, Feb. 24.- ()-- Prime
Minister Churchill's illness, now re-
ported for the first time as pneu-
monia, has again brought out the
suggestion that a small, office-free
war cabinet should be established.
Edgar Louis Granville, one of
Churchill's most persistent criticps,
indicated today he would raise the
question in Commons, arguing that
if the Prime Minister had been ill
for a long period it would have been
of the utmost importance that such
a war cabinet be ready to take over
the reins.

Dii Is Slor-I
Of IAst Year
Students and faculty of the Uni-
versity contributed about one thou-
sand books of first rate quality to
the Victory Book campaign conduc-
ted on campus last week, Prof. W. G.
Rice, University chairman of the
drive, said yesterday.
Over 11,000 books were collected in
Ann Arbor. This is a decrease of five
thousand when compared to last
year's figures. The University de-
crease is even greater for the contri-
butions last year amounted to five
thousand of the total.
Prof. Rice said the books given this
year were far more suitable for rec-
reational reading than the ones col-
lected last year. The books that are
not suitable for the camps are a few
children's books which will be sent to
Ypsilanti library where the library
facilities are badly taxed.
The drive was officially closed last
Saturday, but books may still be left
in the cartons in the General Library
or may be taken directly to North
Hall. The books will be collected by
the CDVO and will be apportioned
among surrounding Army camps.

Conant Believes
Liberal Arts
Will Continue
(Continued from Page 1)
when one asks the following ques-
"1. Would you want to be one of
these young men reserved for spe-,
cial study throughout the war?
"2. Would you want your son to
be one of those men?
f3. Would these young men, in
fact, be leaders in a post-war world
among contemporaries who had run
the risks and faced the hardships of
a bitter war?"
Replying to those who "have been
so concerned (about liberal educa-
tion) that they have questioned the
need of the Army for boys of 18 and
19 years of age," Dr. Conant found
it "hard to see how such questions
can stand in the light of the War De-
partment's evidence as to the crying
need for young men to lower the
average age of the combat divisions."
Although a note of confidence in
the future of liberal arts was struck
throughout the article, Dr. Conant,
who is also chairman of the National
Denfense Research Committee, em-
phasized his conviction that the
country would be endangered if lib-
eral arts were destroyed,
He expressed his belief, however,
that "the primary concern of
American education today is not
the development of the appreci-
ation of the 'good life' in young
gentlemen born to the purple-it
s th infusion of the liberal and
humane tradition into our entire
educational structure. If we are
to retain our liberty," he main-
tained, "we must cultivate in
the largest possible number of our
future citizens an appreciation of
both the responsibilities and the
benefits which come to them be-
cause they are Americans and are
"Sarely it is not the liberal edu-
cation or the lack of it among the 10
per cent of each age group who nor-
mally study arts and letters in our
colleges which will determine the
future of our freedom," he said.

Nazis Harried
Without Rest

Rommel's retreating columns twist-
ing through the hills and out of the
Kasserine Pass southwestward to-
ward Feriana.
American armored forces had
hammered back his thrust westward
through the Kasserine toward Tebes-
sa, which lies inside Algeria; British
and American units together had in-
flicted heavy casualties in the battle
for Thala. Rommel had burst through
to within three miles of that tactical-
ly important point before his attack
began to collapse, and with it the
whole of his offensive to the west.
With the coming of daylight yes-
terday, Marauders, Mitchells, Bos-
tons, Hurribombers and even the
great Flying Fortresses began to
strew explosives upon the retreating
German columns under cover of
Spitfires, Airacobras and Lightnings.
Rommel had been badly mauled in
an action which might well become
one of the turning points of the
Tunisian war.

Asomber Abraham Lincoln stood on the sta-
tion platform at Springfield, Illinois, and looked
down on the faces of the thousand friends and
neighbors gathered to bid him goodbye as he left
for Washington on Feb. 11, 1861. Removing his
hat, the President-elect asked for silence and
began his historic farewell address.
A young Associated Press correspondent,
Henry Villard, was traveling with Lincoln and as
soon as the train had started told Lincoln that he
had made an extraordinarily moving address
that should be preserved for posterity. He asked
that Lincoln write it out, whereupon the President-
elect took the correspondent's paper and pencil
and set the speech down in his own hand, giving
Villard the manuscript to telegraph at the first

authentic story of the Union policy toward the
South to the flash on Lincoln's death. The govern-
ment itself, lacking adequate telegraph facilities,
commandeered the AP system. In the 12 years
since its founding the AP had grown up so that a
New York Herald man wrote: "The special corre-
spondents of the several New York papers are
nearly if not quite as numerous as the agents of
the AP."
One of the agents, as AP reporters were then
called, Lawrence A. Gobright, in Washington,
summarized an AP man's creed. He said: "My
business is to communicate facts; my instructions
do not allow me to make any comment upon the
facts. My dispatches are sent to papers of all man-
ner of politics. I therefore confine myself to what I
consider legitimate news, try to be truthful and
