Vets Will Be
Offered Night
Art Courses
Dean Bennett Is Back
From Conference
Plans for a post-war achitecture
program for veterans were discussed
at the limited annual meeting of the
Association of Collegiate Schools of
Architecture last week in Atlantic
City, N. J., Dean Wells I. Bennett of
the School of Architecture and De-
sign said.
Although the Army has made no
definite statement yet, Dean Bennett,'
retiring president of the association,
stated that part time and accelerated
courses are suggested. Colleges and
universities in the larger cities are
going to run special night courses so
that veterans may hold jobs and still
continue their education, he said.
Columbia is planning a night curricu-
lum, and the University is considering
extension courses in Detroit.
May Plan Veteran Program-
In-service programs for veterans'
who will be stationed abroad in the
army of occupation may also be
worked out, Dean Bennett said. These
men will be idle and anxious to con-
tinue their education, and architec-
ture students will be especially inter-
ested in tours of Europe, he said. In-
structors would be enlisted from those
now in the Army and from older
students qualified to teach.
Dean Bennett pointed out that the
post-war demand for architects will
be tremendous, for the demand now
cannot be supplied.
To Set Up Research
Plans to set up a foundation for
research in architecture were also
made at the meeting, Dean Bennett
said. Modern technology was ac-
cented, he said, and visual education
as developed in Army training pro-
grams was discussed. He pointed
out that Army methods of using films
and models would probably come into
regular use.
Prof. Loring Provine, head of the
School of Architecture at the Uhi-
versity of Illinois, will replace Dean
Bennett as president.
Competition for
Awards Opens
In Art School
Two scholarship competitions in
the College of Architecture and De-
sign have been announced by Dean
Wells I. Bennett.
The Arthur C. Tagge scholarship
are being offered for the second year
to advanced students in the Colleg
of Architecture and Design who hav
been in residence one semester. Twc
awards of $325 each will be made
for 1945-1946. These awards, Dean
Bennett said, are based upon high
scholastic attainment and will be
made after the records are completed
in June.
The Jane Higbie award of $50 is
open to underclassmen of the coliege
and is to be made for general prom-
ise as well as scholarship. This award
is to encourage originality and ex-
cellence in workmanship, Dean Ben-
nett said. It is made annually by
Prof. and Mrs. H. H. Higbie as a
memorial to their daughter Jane
who was a student in the art school.
Students in the College of Archi-
tecture and Design are eligible for
these awards and should make ap-
plication for them before June 1 in
Rm. 207, Architecture Building, Dean

Bennett urged.
Last year the Tagge scholarships{
were awarded to Charles Moore of
the architecture school and to Helen
Johnston of the design school.

R. J. Thomas Demands Wage
Floor To Remedy Time Cut



By The Associated Press
DETROIT, May 3.-Asserting that
"the time to act is now here," R. J.
Thomas, President of the United
Automobile Workers (CIO), called to-
day for a review and revision of war-
time wage policies.
Thomas said at a press conference
that members of the National War,
Labor Board were generally agreed
that the wage structure would need
revision after victory in Europe.
Because of cutbacks in war pro-
duction, he continued, wage controls
should be relaxed to place a floor


under workers' pay to Ieep it
wartime levels.


Reductions in working hours, in
many cases from 48 to 40 hours a
week, he claimed, have reduced the
workers' take-home pay to an aver-
age of "about $32 a week".
"Already fully 140,000 Ford Motor
Co. employes have been placed on a
40-hour week," Thomas declared.
"This means a reduction in take-
home pay of approximately $10 a
week for those who had been working
45 hours and a greater cut for those
hitherto employed more than 45
hours a week."
