THE COMFORT OF RACKHAM:
Graduate School Building '
Is Pride of University

There's a place in Ann Arbor where
you can go to sleep sitting up.
Not that this practice is approved
by University officials, but they, too,
must have discovered this phenom-
enon sometime within the past few
years. Everyone in Ann Arbor knows
about it, and its fame has become
so widespread that the Ann Arbor
Chamber of Commerce is now at work
sending out booklets devoted entire-
ly to the history of this popular
place.
Its fame had spread so far that the
Hotentots sent a cable to the Cham-
ber of Commerce last week asking if
they could have the plans for such
an inner sanctum so that they could
sleep sitting up and give their beds
of nails to the local scrap drive.
Ann Arbor is the only place in the
country which can boast of such a
place, and students, as well as Ann
Arborites realize how fortunate they
;are. You, too, will someday have'
pride in that famed place. Oh, but'
wait a minute-something has been
forgotten. You don't know where
this place is. You'll know about it
sooner or later, so it might just as
well be sooner-meaning now.
The place where you can actually
sleep sitting up is the Rackham Lec-
ture Hall located in the Horace H.
Rackham School of Graduate Studies.
The hall, which seats 1,200 people, is'
a semicircular room with six radi-
ating aisles arranged in a spacious'
manner permitting movement to and
from the seats without requiring oc-
cupants to rise. The seats are more'
comfortable than those in your local'
movie hduse-perhaps more like your
favorite living room chair. And be-
cause they are so comfortable, they
are conducive to sleep. The light-
ing in this first floor room of the
graduate school is provided by a
series of small openings in the ceil-

ing which permit cones of light to
spread over the audience, and as they
are turned on, you begin to imagine
that stars are making their evening
appearance.
The present building of the School
of Graduate Studies, which is on a
direct line with the University Li-
brary, was part of a gift given by
Horace H. Rackham. The gift con-
sisted of a site for the building, the
building and furnishings, and a cap-
ital sum of four million dollars.
Students Use
H ealthService
Ninety-three Percent
Receive Medical Care
You can't get away from statistics.
At least 93 per cent of the student
body ends up every year at one time
or another at the Health Service, and
each student is due to wend his way
to the four-year-old building near
the League on an average of 10 to 12
times annually.
The procedure is simple. You walk
up a short flight of steps, enter the
lobby, obtain a record at the counter,
carry it to a waiting room and take
your choice of the general physicians,
among whom three women doctors
are included. Then you wait and
wait, leaf over magazines and wonder
why the people ahead of you are so
slow.
By means of these few steps you
can be treated by a medical center
alleged to be one of the finest of its
kind in the country with little, and
in most cases, no charge whatsoever.
Each student is entitled to 30 days
of bed care and emergency opera-
tions free.

Eng l11ieers Ha ve
Honor System
Success Depends Upon
Honesty of Each Stduent
The Honor System, started by a
student petition 28 years ago, pre-
vails in the College of Engineering,-
sparing the student the pain of
watching the firm eye of a professor
fixed fervently upon him when he is
taking a bluebook.
Before a student turns in a quiz
paper or a bluebook, he writes on it
a "pledge" demonstrating that he has
neither received nor given aid dur-
ing the test. He then signs his name.
Whenever possible, the students sit
in alternate seats. When the stu-
dents complete the examination, they
place the papers on the instructor's
desk.
The success of the Honor System
depends on the integrity of the in-
dividual student. It is considered un-
ethical to make undue noise or to
disturb other members during the
examination. The duty or every stu-
dent is to report anyone whom he
sees violating the regulations.
The Student Honor Committee,
comprised of two members from each
class, with one student from the
junior class elected chairman and
the chairman from the preceding year
acting as an advisory member, is
maintained for the purpose of hear-
ing the trials of students accused of
abusing the regulations.
After studying the case, the com-
mittee issues a recommended sen-
tence which may be as severe as ex-
pulsion. This sentense is sent to the
Faculty Discipline Committee which
reviews the case.
Any student disciplined by .this
committee has the right to file an
appeal with the Secretary of the Col-
lege within ten days after the de-
cision. However, without the con-
sent of the Dean of the College of
Engineering, no student may be ex-
pelled.

Band To Give
Final Concert
Climaxing a successful season, the
University Concert Band under the
direction of Prof. William D. Revelli
will give its final performance, the
31st annual spring concert, Sunday,
June 4, in Hill Auditorium.
The Concert Band will, however,
continue to' function throughout the
suummer term; rehearsals will be held
two nights each week, and outdoor
concerts will be given by the band.
All freshman students are eligible to
participate in these groups.
Composed of approximately 75
members including Army and Navy
personnel as well as civilians, the
Concert Band has given several per-
formances throughout the year. Co-
operating with Bomber Scholarship,
the band participated in "Symphony
and Swing," a musical innovation in
which the Concert Band played part
of the program while Earl Hines and
his orchestra "swung out" the latter
half of the program. This perfor-
mance was substituted for the Con-
cert Band's annual winter concert.
The marching band, comprised of
130 Navy men and civilians, played at
all six of the University home games
during the football season last fall.
Placement Bureau
Still Very Active
The chief function of the Bureau
of Appointments and Occupational
Information is to place students in
jobs upon graduation.
One division of the Bureau does
personnel research work on the rea-
sons for success or failure of indi-
viduals in their jobs. It gives edu-
cational and occupational guidance
on the basis of tests and interviews
with the students. The Bureau also
collects occupational information
which pis used to place undergradu-
ates, graduates, and alumni in bus-
iness and industry.
The placement service in teaching
positions helps locate undergradu-
ates, graduates, faculty members,
and alumni who are in the field but
want to change.

SCHOOL MOVES ON:
Public Health School Seeks
Solutions for Epidemics

Youngest among the University'sv
schools, the School of Public Health
had its formal opening in May, 1943,
in a new $750,000 glass and brick
building financed by gifts from the
W. K. Kellogg and Rockefeller Foun-
da+ions.
The purpose of the public health
school, one of nine such institutions
in the United States and Canada, is
twofold: to train public health work-
ers and to investigate causes of epi-
demic diseases and seek cures. As a
result of a $30,000 grant from the
National Foundation for Infantile
Paralysis, it has become one of the
main arenas of warfare against virus
diseases in this country and boasts
a fully equipped virology laboratory.
In this unit research is continuously
made into the problems of such virus
diseases as infantile paralysis, influ-
enza, a typical pneumonia, measles,
chicken-pox and mumps.
Under the direction of Dr. Thomas
Francis, Jr., studies have been made
of the causes of poliomyelitis dis-
semination and methods of inactivat-
ing influenza, and in April discovery
of a new vaccine for prevention of
inflenza, ,successful in three of four
cases, was announced. This vaccine.
developed by Dr. Francis and Dr.

Jonas E. Salk, requires the use ai
hens' eggs.
Foresry pen
To Freshmen
Following the policy instituted last
year, the School of Forestry and
Conservation will again admit stu-
dents directly from high school, in-
stead of requiring completion of the
two year pre-forestry program which
was in effect before the war.
The change in curriculum was
made in order to enable the student
to get some training in this field and
to become a better candidate for ef-
fective ,service to his country even
though his stay in college be short-
ened, according to Dean S. T. Dana.
For fifteen years a summer session
in practical field work has been
given at Camp Filibert Roth, situat-
ed on Golden Lake, in Iron County,
Michigan. Its location in the heart
of the Ottawa National Forest makes
it passible for students to observe the
work done in federal forests.
This year the session will begin
July 3 and continue through October
1.
