Can didate Guild Remembers
fife in Brazil, British Guiana

Cand. William L. Guild of the 3rd
OC, Judge Advocate General School,
could probably give some good ad-
vice on ways to beat the rising cost
of living, since he has been sta-
tioned in Brazil and British Guiana
where prices are almost unbelievably
Native cooks are employed for
$2.50 per month; a street car ride
costs a cent and one-half; a cup of
coffee one penny; eggs 11 cents a
dozen and oranges six cents a dozen.
Speaking of his year's service in
the tropics, Cand. Guild said, "The
movie version of sunkissed sands,
Hedy Lamar beneath a palm tree and
a moon are a bit exaggerated. The
bugs, the disease and the heat are
a different story." He said that aft-
er the first six weeks "you get home-
sick and stay that way for about a
year and then you just don't give a

men who "take your GI khaki down

your underwear."
Cand. Guild said that Christmas
packages were received the middle
of April. He will never forget the
fruit cake which was baked in Octo-
ber and opened in April.
He advises soldiers overseas to
write to everyone they know as soon
as they arrive because mail is all im-
portant and to subscribe to their
hometown newspapers.
Cand. Guild also advises soldiers
going overseas to start learning the
language as soon as they get there
because "it not only helps when you
go shopping, but it is a great asset
insofar as the women of the country
are concerned."

The "Squander Bug" turns
pale when be hears the word

Th ASTPR unit, composed of 17
and 18 year old A-12 trainees prob-
ably has the highest esprit de corps
of any Army unit on campus, accord-
ing to Cadet Lt. James McKeown,
executive officer of Company B-4.
"The fellows work for one another.
They enjoy doing things together,"
Cadet Lt. McKeown said. He charac-
Capt. Campbell
Has Had Varied
Military Career
Capt. Richard S. Campbell, Com-
mander of Company C, has literally
seen the country since his induction
into the Army June 5, 1941, as he
has been stationed at eight different
His experience includes an assign-
ment to the coastal artillery barrage
balloon battalion, work in the coastal
artillery and several months as as-
sistant adjutant at company head-
quarters. Capt. Campbell was as-
signed first to Ft. Monroe, Va., and
then to Camp Hulen, Tex. He next
went to Camp Wallace, Tex., Camp
Tyson, Tenn., Santa Monica, Calif.,
and Ft. Custer, Mich. He came here
from Ft. Sheridan, Ill.
Has Science Degree
Capt. Campbell took his degree in
science at Texas A&M College where
he was enrolled in a five year petro-
leum and mechanical engineering
program. This program required,
that he take 45 hours in his last
year. Although he was inducted be-
fore completion of the full five years
of the program, Capt. Campbell hopes
that he may be able to finish it after
the war.
Because of his four years of ROTC
training in college, Capt. Campbell
received his captaincy about seven
months after he entered the Army.
Member of ASME
During college he belonged to the
American Society of Mechanical En-
gineers, the American Iinstitute of
Metallurgical Engineering and the re-
serve officers' organization. Capt.
Campbell's interests cover a wide
variety of activities including auto-
mobile and boat racing and building
motors. While stationed in Tennes-
see he was joint owner of a plane, a
Piper Cub, but had to sell it when
he.was transferred to California be-
cause flying on the coast is prohib-
ited to everyone but air corps per-
sonnel. Capt. Campbell is also in-
terested in photography.
Capt. Campbell's two brothers are
in the Navy. Mrs. Campbell, a native
of California, is now living in Ann
Hellwarth Will
Lecture Here
Mr. A. R. Hellwarth, electric sys-
tem engineer of the Detroit Edison
Company, will speak to the student
members of the American Institute
of Electrical Engineers Thursday,
Dec. 16, on "Communication Sys-
tems Employed by the Detroit Edison
The meeting is of particular inter-
est since Mr. Hellwarth graduated
as an electrical engineer from the
University of Michigan.
Triangles Initiates
Six New Members
Triangles, junior honor society for
engineers, recently initiated six new
members in a ceremony at the Union,
followed by a special dinner.

Those initiated were William Auch,
Richard Barnard, Clement Bauman,
Ted Greer, John Jans and William

terized them as "all around" in re-
spect to interests and activities and
added that there is quite a bit of
individual talent within the group.
The cadets are unique among the
units here since they are one of the
hardest working group, but receive
no pay. Although none of the A-12's
have had any college work before,
they are now taking the equivalent
of 23 hours semester work including
physics, mathematics, chemistry,
English, geography and history in
addition to military science, a physi-
cal education program and drill.
Classes, taught by University in-
structors, are linited to 26 members.
Discipline is strict, and the train-
ees have only Saturday nights off.
Cadets Wear Seal
Cadet Lt. McKeown pointed out
that the cadets may be regarded as
in part taking the place of the regu-
lar University freshman class of
boys. It is for this reason thatsthey
have been authorized by the com-
mandant, Col. Frederick Rogers, to
wear the University seal as a shoul-
der patch. They are the only unit on
campus which wears the University
The cadets are kept very busy, but
it is not entirely all work and no
play. Social eventsnhave included an
open house for Ann Arbor residents,'
faculty members and commanding
officers, a dance at the barracks with
an orchestra from the Barton Hills
Country Club and an informal
Thanksgiving buffet supper at the
barracks. The cadets' Christmas va-
cation will extend only from Christ-
mas Eve to the next mealtime after
Christmas Day.
Trainees Receive Invitations
As a result of the open house about
half of the cadets received invita-
tions from Ann Arbor residents for
week-end parties and dinners.
Cadet Lt. McKeown explained that
the purpose of the ASTPR program
is to train potential officer material.
If the war continues long enough,
the nation will have exhausted most
of its educated men and will have
to draw on the men now being
trained for officers.
Selected by. special boards, the
trainees were chosen on the bases of
scholarship, personality and poten-
tial officer material. All enlisted in
the program since they had the op-
tion of taking it or not.
