Army Intramural
Program Includes
Basketball, Wrestling
A new program of Army intra-
murals, which will give the seven
companies on campus a chance to
compete among themselves and with
the Navy, has been organized under
the general supervision of Maj. J. P.
Each company will have two bas-
ketball teams, and a track team is
to be organized from among the vari-
Gus units. A tentative plan is also
being made to have field events such
as jumping and hurdles.
Men Volunteer
The company basketball teams, re-
spectively under the supervision of a
coach and a manager, are composed
of selected volunteers. About 248
men signed up for basketball origi-
nally, although fewer showed up for
the first practice last Friday night in
Waterman Gymnasium. Company B

Inter-company competition will be-
gin next Friday and will continue on
Nov. 26, Dec. 3 and Dec. 10 in Water-
man Gymnasium. Either the win-
ning company team or 'an all-star
team composed of men from all the
companies will then play the top
Navy team on Dec. 17 in Yost Field
House. The final selection of a team
to compete with ,the Navy will be
made by representatives from the
different companies.
Boxing, Wrestling Planned
Boxing and wrestling are also
planned with nine volunteers for
each. Twenty men signed up for run-
ning and 14 for track.
The aim of the intramural pro-
gram, Maj. Warner said, is "to get
as many men to participate as pos-
sible. Quite a lot of interest was
shown among the men and the or-

Marines Learn
In Forest PEM
Men Trained To Climb
Trees, Use Compass,
Distinguish Animals
This semester 40 Marines are tak-
ing a special forestry P.E.M. course
which in previous years was given
for civilians who wanted to know
how to take care of themselves in the
As there were very few civilians
left on campus to take this course, it
was decided to adapt it to the needs
of the Marine Corps, training the
men to take care of themselves in
jungles and similar places where they
may someday be fighting.
Men Visit Preserve
The men go out to a nearby Uni-
versity forest preserve one afternoon
a week. This preserve is used by the
Forestry Department for forestry
classes. The Marines are instructed
by members of the University staff
assisted by Sgt. George Hornbrook,
Sgt. Floyd Rubin and Cpl. Robert F.
Atkins Jr., Marine drill instructors.
In addition to the 40 Marines there
are still a few civilian students in the
Forestry Department taking the
course. The men learn to climb ropes
and trees to observation posts, how
to find their way through the forest
by means of a compass and other
methods of identification and how to
distinguish dangerous from non-dan-
gerous plants and animals.
The program is adapted from a
book, "On Your Own" which was
written by two University professors,
Samuel A. Graham, professor of eco-
nomic zoology, and Earl C. O'Roke,
associate professor of forest zoology.
Clothing Drive
Begins Nov. 22
A drive, sponsored by the Wash-
tenaw County Salvage Committee,
will begin Nov. 22 for the purpose of
collecting articles of clothing for the
people of war-torn countries over-
This drive, which is being conduc-
ted at the request of the War Pro-
duction Board, has the whole-heart-
ed support of the Michigan State
Association of Cleaners and Dyers
and all garments will be taken to
local cleaners before being shipped
School buildings throughout the
county will act as receiving houses for
donations. Persons wishing to give
clothing will be asked to bring it to
the schools between 8:30 a.m. and
3:30 p.m. except on Saturdays.
Clothing is needed for women from
the ages of two to 50 and for men of
the same ages. The chief articles
needed by the men are overcoats,
topcoats, complete suits, sweaters,
overalls, and sleeping bags. Those
most needed by the women include
coats, skirts, mittens, robes, hosiery,
and underwear.

ASTP To Be Permitted Only
Two Day Christmas Vacation

Christmas holidays will be a war
casualty this year for all Army train-
ees and their instructors stationed on
From the headquarters of the Sixth
Service Command came orders this
week permitting ASTP trainees only
two days' vacation in the holiday
For them and their instructors this
two-day holiday will take the place
Df a full week vacation provided in
the regular University calendar.
The orders of the Sixth Service
Command read: "It is not contem-
plated that any other holiday peri-
od will be allowed ASTP trainees
except Christmas Day, Dec. 25.
Passes may be granted for the peri-
od from the close of scheduled in-
struction on Dec. 24 until the
scheduled time for the evening
meal on Dec. 26.

In its directive to military per-
sonnel here, the Service Command
stated that "Thanksgiving Day and
New Year's Day are not considered
as holidays for military personnel
and employees of the War Depart-
ment during the present war emer-
gency and regular hours of duty
will be required."
Navy men will fare much better
than their brothers in khaki. For
them Thanksgiving vacation will last
from 6 p.m., Nov. 24 to 7:15 p.m.,
Nov. 25.
In addition, the bluejackets on
campus will have a full week for
Christmas, the vacation beginning
after classes Dec. 21 and ending at
7:15 p.m., Dec. 28. Like the Army, the
Navy will consider New Year's just

R. C. Stanbrook, Marine Superin-
tendent for the Bradley Transport
Company of Rogers City, Mich., will
speak before the Reserve Officers
Naval Architecture Group on "Mar-
ine Machinery," at 10 a. m. Friday.
Mr. Stanbrook's company now has
six unloaders on the great Lakes. He
has been successful in increasing the
efficiency of these lake freighters by
improvements in the engine and boil-

pellors designed by the Department
of Naval Architecture and Marine
During the last World War Mr.
Stanbrook was an engineering officer
in the British Navy. His lecture Fri-
day will be given only for the Naval
Architects. No one else may attend.
This semester the Naval Architects
will use the Naval tank in the West
Engineering building about four
hours a week, studying damage con-
trol and stability of ships.
This tank, one of the few of its
size in the country, was built in 1904
for experimental use by marine and
naval engineers. During the last few
years it has been used exclusively
in testing ship designs for Maritime
Commission, Army, Navy and private
