last month entered the second year since' is creation by direction of the
Secretary of War.
In a directive dated Dec. 18, 1942, the Sceretty o fWr ordered the
establishment of ASTP and defined its objective: 'to meet the need of
the Army for the specialized technical trainig of soldiers on adive duty
for certain Army tasks for which its own tiaining facilities are insufficient
in extent of character."
Slight Reduction
Last month, almost on the anniversary of the formal authorization, the
Secretary of War re-emphasized the objective in conjunction with an an-
nouncement stating that a slight reduction will be effected next spring in
the alloted quota of trainees in the ASTP. e pointed out that the number
of soldiers in the program will depend in the future, as in the past, on
the actual needs of the arms and

Forty-five members of Companies
3-1, E and F, held graduation exer-
ises in Rackham Memorial Hall on
Puesday afternoon and were present-
d with graduation diplomas by Prof.

nent of mechanical engineering.
The graduates had completed
ourses in civil, mechanical, or sani-
ary engineering. Those completing
ivil engineering are now eligible for
wo additional semesters in sanitary
The exercises were opened with a
,hort prayer by Dr. Yoder, chaplain
A Co. E. Dean Ivan C. Crawford,
lean of the Engineering College and
% former colonel in the Army, ad-
Iressed the men and pointed out the
alue of having a specialized educa-
ion both in the Army and later in
ivlian life. He told the men that
he work they had done here consti-
uted the major4y of that needed for

Dean Alfred H. Lovell, Engineering
College, then presented Col. Frederick
C. Rogers, commandant of S.U. 3651,
who complimented the graduates on
the splendid job they had done under
the speeded-up program. He warned
the men against expecting too much
immediately after leaving here for
their next post.
Rev. Muller, Co. B chaplain, closed
the ceremony with a benediction.
Ann Arbor Girls
Apply for Parts
In Co. C Musical
About 35 Ann Arbor girls tried out
for parts in Co. C's musical, "Bidin'
Our Time" when casting was held
yesterday in the USO ,ballroom.
The auditioners ranged from girls
with a great deal of singing and
dancing experience to others with
no previous experience.
Men from Co. C were auditioned
for the male roles, which have not
yet been cast.
Cpl. Troy R. Bartlett, composer

and arranger of the show's *music,
Cpl. Hy Wolotsky, production man-
ager, and Pfc. Chester H. Sargent,
vocal director, will select the cast
this week-end. It will be announced
on Monday.
Rehearsals To Begin
Rehearsals for the show will begin
in a few days, it was announced yes-
terday by Cpl. Wolotsky, who has
been revising the script to meet with
suggestions made by the Committee
on Theatre Policy and Practice.
The script for the show, as well as
all the music, has been written en-
tirely by men from Co. C. Eight
songs have been especially written
for the show. Three of these were
introduced at Co. C's pre-Christmas
dance. Ranging from boogie-woogie
to light opera, the music has been
composed by Cpl. Bartlett to the
lyrics written by Cpl. Wolotsky.
The show will be given on Feb.
25 and 26.

Medical sophomores are leading all
other units of Co. G in bond pur-

Meanwhile the company's total to-
day stood near $1,500.
Sophomores have already sub-
scribed more than $600. Medical
freshmen are second with $350, and
medical seniors third with $225.

results in the case of the alcohol im-
bibers. For while both claimed little
previous experience, one was com-
pletely unaffected by a double dose,
while the other lost all co-ordination
on a single trial. And Pfc. John Boyd,
who took scopalamine, discovered no
interest in the truth but merely a de-
sire to beat up his best friends in the
class. All of which proves what most
doctors have to learn by experience
-that the same drug has different
effects on different people.
Research Conducted
Every student this year is also
working on his own research prob-
lem. Some of these have been to use
drugs to produce different diseases.
Experimental diseases are a failure.
But some members of Co. G have
been able to produce kidney disease,
anemia, and liver cirrhosis. And
having produced it, they next learn
how to treat it.
Rev. Lemon To Discuss
Freud, Jung Wednesday
Three modern philosophers -

Every company has its officers and
its enlisted men, but rare is the com-
pany that can boast of not one, but
two, geniuses. Life in B-4 is enjoy-
able these days chiefly because of the
few abnormals running loose. Cadet
William "Hot Stuff" Mueller is an
undisputed genius. He is known
particularly for having memorized
the log tables.
"My accomplishment is of so trivial
a nature that I am astonished to find
it has aroused comment among myk
fellows. Remember, it was only the
four - place logarithm table," said
Cadet Mueller. "I am trying hard to
learn the seven-place table in my
spare time."
Everyone knows that C/1st Sgt.
Tom Janusy is a genius, too. But he
has a military rather than a strictly
mathematical mind. He said to a re-
porter the other day, "Ike and I have
it pretty well figured out, and the
war is progressing exactly as we plan-
ned it."
The characteristics that make Jan-
usy a good (is it possible?) Sgt. are
his strong lungs and his good, clear
voice. When he yells commands, the
sound of his voice causes confusion
in platoons three or four blocks away.
But even Sgt. Janusy has a fault-
his sense of humor, or lack of one.
