Personnel Men
Students Take
Special Course
Students of public personnel work
at the University are distinguished by
having one of their required courses
Political Science 93, Public Personnel
Management, taught by Mr. Litch-
field of the Michigan Civil Service
Because Mr. Litchfield is in touch
with everyday problems he gives a
realistic approach to personnel work.
"The course is practical and valuable
for he has a great deal of personal
experience on which to base his les-
sons," Ruth Daniels, '44, one of his
students said. .
His course, which meets from 7:30
to 9:30 in 215 Haven Hall, is open to
graduate students and seniors in
public administration and political
science and those interested in per-
sonnel management in public admin-
istration and psychology. More stu-
,dents may still enroll in this semest-
er's section.
A graduate of this University, Mr.
Litchfield secured his Ph. D. in Public
Administration in 1940. He taught
at Brown University and is now con-
*nected with research work in the
Civil Service Commission.
According to a survey there are
four times as many positions open to
personnel managers as there are men
and women to fill them. This condi-
tion is aggravated by the war.
The. demands in Michigan have
been so great that the Michigan Civil
Service Commission has prevailed
upon the University to offer special
courses in Public Personnel Work.

United Front
Van Dusen Denounces
Un-Christian Peace
If we are to have a just and dur-
able peace, the Christians of the
country must present a united front
to out-think, out-fight and out-act
those who seek to make an un-
Christian peace, Dr. H. P. Van Dusen
of the Union Theological Seminary,
said Sunday at a mass meeting in
the Congregational Church.

the all-day Christian Mission on
World Order, Harlie L. Smith, presi-

three men.
Dr. Van Dusen also emphasized
that Christians in their attempts to
influence statesmen and peacemak-

of politics or their efforts would be
in vain.
Young peoples discussion groups
were held Sunday night in the First
Presbyterian and First Methodist
Churches with Dr. Van Dusen and
Dr. Hutchinson acting as chairmen.

Allies Predict Crack in
Luftwaffe Air Power
By The Associated Press
8-There is every prospect that,
starting in December, one of the
war's last great air struggles will be
fought in the skies over Italy between
the Luftwaffe and the powerful Am-
erican-British airforce in this thea-
Officers who had been attached to
the staff of Field Marshal Gen. Al-
bert Kesselring quote him as saying
the full strength of the Luftwaffe will
be turned to the Mediterranean for
the winter after weather blocks ope-
ration on the Russian front.
Last Gasp of War
Allied military men believe that
any such large-scale German air ef-
fort will mean its last big gasp of the
war and that the crack in German
military strength in this war will
come not in the fleet as in the last
war but in the air force.
While Kesselring is reported to
have been removed from command
in Italy and replaced by Field Mar-
shal Erwin Rommel, this is expected
to make no difference in the German
high command's plans.
The Germans realize fully the
might of the Allied airforce being as-
sembled in the Mediterranean for a
winter attack against Germany and
are determined to stop it at all costs.
Germans To Concentrate
It is expected the Germans will
concentrate numbers of fighters in
the Po Valley to try to intercept Al-
lied bomber fleets as they cross the
A vital factor in war superiority is
the daylight bomber and the Ger-
mans thus far have been unable to
develop such a weapon that can
stand up against fighters.

All Night Battle
Starting out at 11slast night and
returning at 10 this morning, the
men of Company A took part in their
first all night maneuvers in the vi-
cinity of the Golfsidae Academy.
The soldiers were divided into two
groups, one attacking and the other
defending. During the night the men
were on forced march. At dawn they
participated in the attack and de-
fense of an area.
The entire maneuvers were in
charge of cadet and commissioned
officers. Each group knew nothing
of what the other group was doing.
Therefore, they had to make their
plans at the last minute on the

The, American Army that will

Leinsdorf Concert Season
To Feature American Works

TYPING Service
Conveniently located to campus

An ambitious program of works by
modern American composers has
been planned for presentation this
year by the Cleveland Orchestra,
Erich Leinsdorf, its new conductor,
revealed in an after-concert review
"It is my belief," Leinsdorf said,
"that modern native works tend to
lighten concerts without making any
compromise with the symphonic dig-
nity of orchestral music."
"Among the works which will be
performed by the orchestra during
the coming concert season," he con-
tinued, "is the radio premiere of
Boruslav Martinu, Second symphony,
which will take place on Dec. 12, and

also Aaron Copland's 'Lincoln Por-
trait' to be given some time in Feb-
When asked about his favorite
modern American composers, Leins-
dorf replied that that could best be
answered by .those whose works he
played. Judging by his concert pro-
gram that would put Morton Gould
and George Gershwin high on the
The conductor also expressed an
interest in the music of Samuel Bar-
ber, and a keen admiration for the
English modernist William Walton.
Changing the subject to a discus-
sion of the classical side of Sunday
night's program, he said he had per-
formed the Schubert Seventh Sym-
phony because he knew that it
hadn't been heard here in a long
His train time drawing near,
Leinsdorf bade his friends and ad-
mirers goodnight and left for a con-
cert the next night in Jackson.
