ICC Representatives To
Attend Co-ops Convention
At the Inter-Cooperative Council

A major university, alive with ac-
tivity, geared to the urgencies of
war-this was the picture unfolded
yesterday for the more than 30
newspaper editors and radio men
who toured the campus as guests
of the Army Command nere.
The tour was arranged and guided
by executive officers of Army Head-
quarters' as part of a nationwide
program to present first hand ob-
servation of the Army Specialized
Training Program (ASTP) at work.
The tour included first hand in-
spection of Army trainees in class-
es, at work in the Intramural
Building, at home in the East
Quadrangle, and at mess in the
The ASTP program was officially
begun March 1 this year and the
University of Michigan is one of
the pilot schools in the country in
utilizing its facilities for specialized
Of the Army's program of 16 dif-
ferent courses designed to produce
technically trained men for every
branch of service, 15 are in progress
At present, there are more than
3,800 uniformed men on campus in-
cluding both the Army and Navy
programs taking courses ranging
from language study to sanitary en-
Even before any ASTP units came
to campus, the facilities of the Uni-
versity were being used for Army
In September, 1942, the Judge
Advocate School was moved wholly
from Washington and set up in the
Law Quadrangle. At that time
there were some 80 men in the
unit, all officers.
It was expanded last spring into
an Officer Candidate School and
is the only one of its kind in the
Having gained experience from ad-
justing a course of army training
to its regular functions, the Univer-
sity was prepared and ready to in-
augurate the most diversified ASTP
training set-up in the country last
The first group of men to come
to campus was a contingent of 140
students assigned to engineering
Prof. Clarence Kessler of the Col-
lege of Engineering pointed out at a
luncheon for the press men held at
the Union that "this initial group
presented many problems, for we
immediately found men who didn't
want to be in college."
"After an initial period of trial
and error adjustment fitting the fac-
ilities of the engineering school to
the speed of the program, we worked
out a method of using our facilities
efficiently," he stated.
Now the engineering school is
teaching more than 700 uniformed
men each day the rudiments of ba-
sic and the details of advanced
engineering in every department of
the school.
Col. Fred Rogers, commander of
Army forces in Ann Arbor, in dis-
cussing ASTP at the luncheon, said
that "in the beginning the Army
was in a bad way for technically
trained men in every skilled field. In
the. ASTP program we are refining

tar'y tactics each week, as well as
six hours of physical education.
In connection with the Army pro-
gram, the University has introduced
several innovations.
For the first time in University
history, the engineering college
had to incorporate into its pro-
gram regularly scheduled study
classes each week to give extra aid
to students.
Another first in University history
was the establishment of a curricu-
lum known as sanitary engineer-
ing. The course is te result of the
Army's realization that "it must pro-
vide for the general welfare of the
foreign lands in which it is operat-
ing," Prof. Kessler pointed out.
Dean Lloyd S. Woodbourne of the
literary college declared that "the
degree of success that we have at-
tained in our ASTP program can be
attributed to the cooperation of every
unit in the University."
Every man in ASTP is afforded the
best in housing and messing facili-
ties. The bulk of the Army men on
campus are being housed in the East
Quadrangle of Residence Halls, a
University dormitory originally de-
signed for 450 civilian students.
At present more than 1,000 men
in khaki are being housed there
and the dining halls serve more
than 3,000 meals each day.
In addition to the East Quad,
Army trainees are being housed in
the Law Quadrangle, Victor Vaughn
dormitory, and in more than ten
fraternity houses which have been
taken over for that purpose.
All the men living outside of what
were civilian dorms are being fed in
the ballroom of the Union which
serves 700 men three times a day.
Other highlights included in the
tour of inspection were the Naval
tank-one of three in the United
States, and the tropics room of the
University Hospital where experi-
ments are being conducted to dis-
cover the efficiency of human en-
ergies in tropical areas.
The more than 1,400 Navy V-12
trainees now on campus completes
the picture of University facilities
geared to war training.
The Navy's college training pro-1
gram is four months younger than
ASTP, officially beginning July 1 of
this year.
"The Navy program. is the most
democratic program that has ever
been devised," Captain Richard
Cassidy, commandant'of Naval
forces here, said, "and it gives men
who would not otherwise have it,
the opportunity to come to col-
Included in the Navy program are
some 300 Marines and Coastguards-
men, all of whom are being housed in
the West Quadrangle, the largest
men's dormitory on campus.
All men connected with both serv-
ice programs on campus were of one



opinion - that specialized training
programs are beneficial to the serv-
ices supplying much needed techni-
cal personnel, that they are a benefit
to the nation providing a well round-
ed educated generation to take up
the burdens of peace, and that they
are a benefit to each individual in-
creasing his wealth of knowledge.
Every classroom, lecture hall,
laboratory and instructor connect-
ed with Michigan. is geared to the
multiple duties of war training.
This is the University of Michigan
in training for war, for peace.
