U.S. Establishes Geological
Office on U. of M. Campus

Reds Find Devastation in Streets of War-Torn Orel

Improved Health Instruction
Discussed in State Conference

As a part of its nationwide pro-
gram to augment diminishing petro-
leum reserves in the United States,
the Geological Survey, U. S. Depart-
ment of Interior, has established an
office in the Department of Geology,
*t the University of Michigan.
The local office will conduct geo-
lQgic research for possible additional
oil-producing areas in Michigan. It
is one of several projects being und-
erttken by the Survey in states where
new supplies of petroleum may -be
obtained. State Geological Surveys,
the oil and gas industry, and univer-
sities are collaborating in furthering
the national program.
"The possibilities of discovering
npW oil supplies in Michigan are
promising. Our aim is to discover

areas, through the study of geologic
formations, that are favorable for the
occurance of oil in commercial quan-
tities," George V. Cohee, from the
Geological Survey in Washington,
stated. "The need for new fields is
great, as our present oil reserves are
being depleted faster than reserves
in new fields are being found. Our
primary concern is to make all pos-
sible Igeologic studies that will aid
in the discovery of new supplies of
oil needed for the present emerg-
These petroleum studies in Michi-
gan, whichtre just getting underway,
are being carried on in collaboration
with the State Geological Survey and
the University Department of Ge-
ology. Prof. K. K. Landes, chair-
man of the department, is associated
with Mr. Cohee in the Michigan
study. The University provided of-
fice and laboratory space for this
Michigan project.
The studies will consist of an ac-
cumulation of data to be used in the
preparation of maps showing strati-
graphic sections, thickness of oil
producing formations, and margins
of possible producing zones. Their
objectve is the delimiting of broad
areas'fvorable for ol production.
Results of the studies are to be re-
leased a soon as possible through
feal and state geological surveys.

That many teachers in Michigan
favor the establishment of 'an In-
ternational Office of Education, was
revealed in a poll taken'by Dean
James B. Edmonson, of the School
of Education.
Dr. Edmonson asked ten questions
of 200 experienced teachers convened
here for an Educational Conference
this summer and obtained their opin-
ions on permanent world peace and
the role of education in maintaining
These Michigan teachers strongly
favored an international office of ed-
ucation, such as proposed by the Ed-
ucational Policies Commission. This
office would serve as a "great center
and clearinghouse for studies and
data on education subjects" and plan
for educational reconstruction.
On the whole, the teachers col-'
sulted showed optimism in the iiflu-
ence of education on peace plans,'
the poll indicated. Dr. Edmonson's
question relating to this issue was:
"How much confidence do you have
in world-wide education as a major
means of insuring permanent
peace? The replies were:,;'None, 2
percent; some, 32 percent; much,
34 percent; very much, 22 percent.
However, 59 percent were doubt-
ful that "binding agreements regard-

ing major educational objectives
fering greatly in religion, political
theory, social structure, economic
well-being, and national ambition."
Replying affirmatively was a 21 per-
centage. Dr. Edmonson commented,
"Some of the replies to later ques-
tions would suggest that teachers be-
lieve that the importance of these
differences could be minimized
through appropriate education."
A 90 percent majority decided that
"the organized teaching profession be
aggressively active in the .promotion
plans for permanent world peace
through education."
Of immediate significance, Dr.
Edmonson felt, was the fact that
57 percent of the teachers thought
that Axis schools should be under
the direction of education repre-
sentatives of the Allied Nations
until peace programs of education
are established.
That the teachers feel that they
Vould face a v'e'ry hostile public if
they'attempted to teach the equality
of nations was shown by the replies
to and another question. Twenty-
one percent of the teachers wrote
that there would probably be strong
oppositio 'i0 their communities .if
.themre' l l t thlie United
States Want ohe 'o the very su-
perior nations." A percentage of 56
could be secured among nations dif-

thought that there would be some
opposition; 6 percent approval; 17
percent no objection.
An emphatic majority, 94 percent,
desired the United States to join a
union of nations, if one be formed
after the war. Eighty-three percent
were favorable to including Germany,
Italy, and Japan in this union within.
a few years after the war.
The majority of those questioned
had little confidence in any measure
for maintaining peace exceptrthose
that were backed by the force of
arms. Thirty-nine percent were not
skeptical of that means of securing
