are trained as instructors in the me-

friendly and enemy ships and air-

be doing the all-important job of
gleaning valuable combat informa--
tion from military photographs.
Among the enlisted women, the
expansion of the training program
has been even more marked. A year
ago, they were being trained as radio
ope.rators, storekeepers and yeomen.
Today five aviation technical schools
have been opened. There are petty
officer schools for chaplains' assist-
ants, key punch operators, mail spec-
ialists, cooks' and bakers, hospital"
corpsmen and pigeon trainers.
A variety of other petty officer
ratings have also: been earned by en-
listed women who have studied for
them at their duty stations. These
include photographic sp ec i ali s-t s,
printers, electricians' mates, radio
technicians, aviation radio techni-
cians, telegraphers, and business ma-
chine specialists. All together, en=-
listed women now hold 30 different
types of ratings and range in rank
STfrom apprentice seamen to first class
petty officers.

the students at the Univer-
sity a bit more aware of the
war last week. Some seri-
ous-minded professors, stu-
dents and townspeople have
often criticized the student
body for a general feeling
of complacency and a lack
of interest in the war and
problems in the country.
There was the case of the
sweet coed who thought
"Ibid" must be a great man
"because he knows so much
about everything." One
professor suggested that
the students might at least
look over a newspaper dur-
ing the day . . . President
Roosevelt's proposal stirred
quite a bit of discussion on
campus last week. Some
thought it was a good
thing, necessary and reas-
onable; others heartily dis-
liked the thought of having
their lives tampered with.

servicemen stationed on
