attend a meeting at 4 p.m. Wednes-

tions Building, Al Srere, editor of the
directory, announced yesterday.
He said that the work, which will
start at the beginning of the summer
session and last about three or four
weeks, will offer valuable experience
in editing, advertising and selling to
the students who turn out.
He urged that as many students,
who are able to, come out for the
work, "for the number of students
who show an active interest in the
directory by their work on it will
largely determine when the directory
will appear."
Srere said the directory will list the
names and addresses of students en-
rolled for the summer term, summer
session, in the summer camps and
military personnel, and it will include
lists of students living in women's

While there is a crying need for
teachers in all kinds of work at the
present time, there will even be a
greater demand in the post-war pe-
riod, for it is anticipated that school
enrollments will increase, Dean J. B.
Edmonson of the School of Education
said yesterday in an interview.
Teaching, he declared, is one of the
oldest of occupations and one of the
most necessary.
Veteran Education Planned
When the war is over he stated,
many new courses will need to be de-
signed to re-educate veterans for civ-
ilian tasks and there will be the job of
rehabilitating the wounded through
appropriate programs of education.
At that time, he said, about seven
million pupils within the secondary
school will need teachers for a var-
iety of subjects and there will be
thousands of teaching positions open-
ing in colleges and universities.
Dean Edmonson emphasized that
teaching experience is invaluable
training for various fields of work.
He said that it was also a splendid ex-
perience for young women who look
forward to having their own homes,
or to playing a vital part in the civic
life of a community.
Special Fields Available
Once people have had the proper
training to become teachers, he said,
they will find many fields of teaching

Coning Events
The Regular Thursday Evening
Record Concert regularly held in the
V'Ien's Lounge of the Rackham Build-
ing at 7:45 p.m. will continue this
week with its survey of American
music. Two groups of composers will
be played: American composers of
the new Boston group who studies in
Europe and whose works show defi-
nite European style and character-
istics and European composers who
tried to capture the American jazz
style in their music. Of the first
group we will play Loeffler's "Pagan
Poem," MacDowell's Piano Concerto,
and a Concertina for Piano and
Orchestra by Hadley. In the second
group are represented the Ragtime
for Eleven Instruments by Stravin-
ski and Honneger's Concertina for
Piano and Small Orchestra. Grad-
uates and servicemen are cordially

available to them. Persons with spe-1
cialized training will be needed for
classes in kindergarten, physical ed-
ucation, music and art.3
To meet with success, he empha-
sized, one should rank high in'teach-;
ing personality. He said they must1
have qualities in cooperativeness, in-
dustry, initiative, patience, trust-
worthiness, humor and tactfulness.
Salaries Not Large
Teachers' salaries, he stated, in
general, are not large. No teacher,
he said, will ever get rich in the way
Howard Wins
First Place in
'Music Contest
Lt. (jg) Dean C. Howard of San-
dusky, 0., who received his Master of
Music degree in composition from
the School of Music in 1942, has been
announced as first place award win-
ner in the field of original composi-
tion in a contest sponsored by the
National Composers Clinic.
Lt. Howard's work, "Suite for Clar-
inet and Strings," was honored by
being selected from a thousand or
more entries in a nation-wide com-
petition sponsored by the clinic.
As a graduate student at the Uni-
versity, having received his Bachelor's
degree at Baldwin-Wallace College,
Lt. Howard's talent was evidenced in
many ways, including the writing of
scores of various campus musical pro-
ductions and playing in small ensem-
In addition to his prize-winning
composition which was written while
Howard was here, he also composed
a "Quintet for Strings" (in three
movements), a "Quartet" and a
"Symphony" (for full orchestra).
'Since Lt. Howard is at present on
active duty in the Pacific he will be
unable to conduct the performance
of his composition before an audience
of critics, comosers and publishers,
who are meeting in Chicago during
this week.
Prof. Keeler Appointed
To Pipe Code Committee
Prof. Hugh E. Keeler of the Mech-
anical Engineering Department has
been appointed a member of the
American Standards Association's
Committee on Code for Pressure Pip-
The work of this committee covers
the design, manufacture, test, instal-
lation and operation of pressure pip-
ing systems. The committee has al-
ready completed work on an Ameri-
can Standard Code for Pressure Pip-

that a few lawyers and businessmen
may become wealthy, but on the oth-
er hand, he pointed out, many be-
ginning teachers receive better sal-
aries than the average college grad-
uate in other professions, since at
the outset, teaching pays better than
many other kinds of work.
Dean Edmonson said that it is
doubtful whether the average piofes-
sional or business worker has a finan-
cial advantage over the more suc-
cessful teachers, especially when ac-
count is taken of the value of the
pension privileges available in many
states and in most of the larger
Permanent Employment
Another advantage, he stated, in
choosing teaching as a career is that
during the depression periods there
is a permanency of employment
whch is not assurred to workers in
certain fields that pay more in peri-
ods of prosperity.
All those who are interested in
learning more about the profession
are urged, he said, to make an ap-
pointment for a conference with
members of the staff of the School of
Education or with advisors in other
