Nurse Council
Representative
To Grive Th~ks
Dorothy Rushy To
Discuss Opportunities
In Post-War Fields
Miss Dorothy Rusby, representative
of the National Nursing Council for
War Service and the United States
Cadet Nurse Corps, will hold informal
discussions Monday and Tuesday in
the League and in the dormitories on
the opportunities for college women
in the United States Nurse Corps.
Morning conferences will be held
from 10 a.m. to noon, Monday and
Tuesday in the Grand Rapids room
in the League. Afternoon conferences
will be from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Mon-
day, and from 2:30 to 4 p.m., Tues-
day, for all girls interested in obtain-
ing information about the United
States Nurse Corps.
There will be also an informal gath-
ering after dinner Monday in Stock-
well Hall and a meeting at 4:15 p.m.
Tuesday in the Henderson room of
the League.
Miss Rusby's visit is part of a na-
tion-wide endeavor sponsored by Dr.
Parran, Surgeon-General of the Unit-
ed States, to recruit 65,000 student
nurses this year for wartime replace-
ments caused by the acute needs of
the Army, Navy and civilian health
agencies, and also to interest college
women in preparation for post-war
careers.
As a post-war profession, nursing
offers opportunities which have been
greatly expanded by the war. There
is now evidence that there will con-
tinue to be after the war, a great
need for nurses not only in hospitals
and in other institutions, but also in
public health nursing.

Hillel Is Host to
Detroit Group
One hundred Detroit women who
form the Young Women's Council of
the B'nai Brith will arrive in Ann
Arbor at 1:30 p. m. today for their
annual visit to the campus.
The women, under the chairman-
ship of Miss Sylvia Modieste of De-
troit, will attend a tea at 2 p. m. at
the Foundation and at 3 p. m. will be
conducted on a tour of the campus
ending with a faculty concert in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
The group will be entertained at a
6 p.m. buffet supper at the Founda-
tion, followed by a special program
under the direction of Lois Newman
and Selma Smith. Stan Wallace,
president of the Hillel Council, and
Rabbi J. Cohen will address the group.
Miss Joyce Siegan, '46, will be in
charge of Hillel arrangements.

Coed Lights-out
Plan To Stay on
Voluntary Basis
Curfew Vote Show
Campus Preference I
For Self-Government
Meeting Wednesday, coed house{
presidents passed by unanimous vote
a resolution that the lights-out pro-'
gram should continue as a noncom-
pulsory campaign.
Reaction of the 93 girls present at
the meeting bore evidence to the fact
that campus women want to take an
active part in self-government.
Ann McMillan, '44, president of Ju-
diciary Council, emphasized the fact
that at no time was this program
compulsory. "It was more a publicity
campaign and a suggestion on the
part of the Women's War Council and
Judiciary Council," she said.
Problems presented by this repre-
sentative group expressed the feelings
that coeds were doing war work in
addition to carrying heavy programs,
making it impossible for even the
most conscientious to cope with a
compulsory program and that dif-
ficulty had been found in locating a
suitable study room. They empha-
sized the fact that in a small house
the study room system would not'
lessen the number of light bulbs in'
use.
Pan-Hellenic and Assembly, co-
sponsors of the plan, will send a let-
ter to all house mothers this week
explaining that the program will re-,
main non-compulsory.
House mothers will be asked to7
cooperate in setting aside an avail-
able study room if girls in the house
wish to cooperate with the lights-out
campaign.

rangements, will feature Herb Eide-
miller playing one of his most recent
compositions entitled "Slant Walk"

new and different."
In response to many requests and
in keeping with the Christmas spirit,
Sawyer will play his own rendition
of the popular "White Christmas."
Pat DuPont and Billy Layton will
carry the vocals.

hat "our extension services are no-
where being fully used, an Army edu-
cation program has not been devel-
oped, we have no organization like
the WEA, our labor unions are not
fully awake to the opportunities a-
vailable for the education of their
workers, we are too slowly develop-
ing plans to aid our soldiers to re-
turn to civilian life, and our univer-
sities are still only timidly looking o-
ver the fence at the field of adult ed-
ucation."
The University of Michigan is
being looked to for leadership in
education all over the world, he re-
ported, and added, "'This may seem
a strong statement, but I assure
you it is none the less the truth. We
are not expected to ride on any-
one's bandwagon, but we are ex-
pected to be among the vanguard
of universities with an internation-
al outlook."
Discussing Britain's position in ed-
ucational leadership and reforms, the
President stated that "some of these
same conclusions have been express-
ed in the United States, but Britain is
doing something about them, while
we are doing little.
"We have been saying 'Let us fi-
nish the war and then tackle the
problems of the postwar world,'
while the British realize that if we
wait that long, it will he too late."
The University President gave par-
ticular attention to the work of the
WEA in the field sponsoring discus-
sion groups among potters, engine
drivers, and munitions workers cov-
ering such subjects as citizenship,
the philosophy of Fascism, the back-
ground of the war and the outlook for
peace.

Youth Leaders
Seek Solution
An attempt to find new corrective
measures in the fight against juven-
ile delinquency will be sought here
tomorrow in an all-day work shop
conference of youth leaders at the
League.
"Community Youth Recreation"
will be the general theme of the meet-
ing sponsored by the Adult Educa-
tion Association of the University.
Walter Berry, secretary of Govern-
or Kelly's Youth Committee, will key-
note the day's proceedings, and Rose
Allen, secretary of the Willow Run
Recreation Council, will speak on
'Sound Planning.
The more than 125 delegates to the
conference will represent 25 different
communities in Michigan and will
spend the greater part of the day in
round table discussion groups ex-
changing ideas.
The emphasis of the conference will
be placed on what actually is being
done to provide improved work and
recreational facilities for youth, how
current programs are functioning,
and what contributions the young
people themselves are making toward
solving the problem.
After the conference, reports on
what was accomplished and new pro-
gtams submitted will be circulated
throughout the state.

"The Ministry of Labor together
with the universities decide what
students are to go to college, and
they are not called to service until
their training is complete. Thus
students are hampered in their
work only by their civilian defense
duties, which is decidedly not the
case here."
He indicated his preference for the
English method of keeping students
on a civilian status, stating that "it
is superior to ours."
The President offered the following
suggestions "deliberately limited to
the field of continuing education, for
the need here is most immediate as I
see it":
1) The Universities should urge the
establishment of national and state

itdy commissions to co-ordinate and
a 1s t te ii.al a eeI c ;to pjrolde
mnute comtuueheusive training.
"I The universities should accept
responsibility for providing instruc-
tion for adults and out-of-school
youth.
3) Universities should encourage
their teachers to contribute their ser-
vices through extra-mural depart-
ments.
4) Universities should organize
within their walls research institutes
for the study of methods of preparing
men and women for better citizen-
ship.
5) And, finally, because the United
States can no longer exist in splendid
isolation, despite loud assertions to
the contrary, Universities should ar-
range through institutional agree-
ments for extensive interchanges of
teachers and students with foreign
colleges.
