YANKS AND INJURED OKINAWAN-An Okinawa civilian who, al-
though a bystander, was injured in the hitter fighting on the island,
receives treatment from Americans. His wife tries to comfort him.

Ann Arbors Fiohtmi Nisei
Honored by Chireh Servie

"The 18,000 Americans of Japanese
descent who have been inducted into
our Army, and especially those hund-
reds who have given their lives, have
helped to strengthen the American
ideal of insistence upon the worth of
the .individual, regardless of the
country of his grandparents, the
wealth of his father or the color of
his skin."
Secretary of Interior Ickes gave ex-
pression to these sentiments in a mes-

Student's part in the building of
the peace was discussed at a two-ses-
sion panel Sunday, sponsored by
MYDA in cooperation with the
Wayne +University Club of American
Youth for Democracy.
Bridget Poulson, executive secre-
tary of Michigan AYD, keynoted the
first session in a speech pointing out
the problems of the peace as they
have come up at San Francisco. She
mentioned Bretton Woods, Dumbar-
ton Oaks, and the necessity for unity
among the Big Three.
Discussions Held
Discussion followed along the lines
set forth by Miss Poulson with stu-
dents from Wayne University giving
brief speeches on the issues. Anna
Vidakis of Wayne University presid-
ed at the session.
Virginia Kougias, AYD organizer
in the Chicago area, spoke on "Fu-
ture Prospectives of the Student
Movement" in the keynote address of
the second session. She spoke of the
history of the youth movement in the
United States and the needs of and
for the youth movement today.
Resolutions Sent
A series of eight resolutions to be
sent to American Youth, for a Free
World were compiled by a committee
at the close of the first session. These
resolutions ask for closer coopera-
tion between the Big Three and sup-
port of the established peace; sup-
port of Dumbarton Oaks; that only
anti-fascist countries be allowed
membership in the world organiza-
tion; that the colonies be allowed
self-determination, that the Warsaw
Polish government be represented at
San Francisco; that post-war mili-
tary conscription be adopted in the
United States; that war criminals be
immediately brought to trial and
punished; and that the Yalta agree-
ments be supported.

sage specially prepared for the ser-
vices for Ann Arbor Americans of
Japanese descent in the armed for-
ces held Sunday at the First Metho-
dist Church. The message was de-
livered by Harry Matoba, chairman
of the memorial service.
Ickes' Statement
"These Nisei have proved to Amer-
ica and to all the world that the de-
sire for freedom is not a racial trait.
Their sacrifice has pledged us firmly
to the principle that all our people
must be permitted to share in the
freedom achieved on the field of bat-
te," Ickes' statement affirmed.
An address by Col. R. C. Miller, U-.
S. Army Area Commandant and a
sermon by Dr. W. P. Lemon were
other highlights of the service in
honor of the 186 Ann Arbor Nisei in
the armed forces and in memory of
the ten from this area killed in ac-
Cql. Miller's Address
The essence of Col. Miller's address
is contained in a passage which he
quoted from a letter written by Pres-
ident Franklin D. Roosevelt : "No
loyal citizen of thesUnited:States
should be denied the democratic right
to exercise the responsibilities of his
citizenship, regardless of his ances-
try. The principle on which this
country was founded and by which
it has always been governed is that
Americanism is a matter of the mind
and heart; Americanism is not, and
never was, a matter of race or an-
Dr. Lemon brought out in his ser-
mon that if this is a war for mere
physical existence, the sacrifices of
those who have been killed in action
are foolish. But, he stressed, if this
is a war of high ideals which will be-
come realities, the sacrifices have not
been in vain.
The third chapter of the Wisdom
of Solomon and selections from
Isaiah were read by the Rev. Chester
HI. Loucks, while prayers were led by
the Rev. H. L. Pickerill. The Rev.
Ralph Dunlop was the host pastor.

"Hey Mable, let's go to the show
tonight instead of studying for the
"ec" bluebook tomorrow."
In 1911, in the days of "Uncle Joe
Cannon," the fighting LaFollette and
Norris, when New Mexico and Ari
zona became numbers 47 and 48, and
when most of our pappys had not yet
tipped their hats to out our mammys,
the Michigander might have made
this statement with impunity.

Marking the first time in four con-
secutive years that three awards
have been made instead of tyo, the
scholarships are to be used toward
the six-week summer session (1945)
at the University of Mexico. In addi-
tion, these students will be given
free tuition at the University through
an exchange scholarship plan by
which the Universities of Michigan
and Mexico exchange students for
the summer session.
Chosen by officers of La Sociedad
Hispanica and their director, Prof.
Ermelindo A. Mercado of the Ro-
mance Language department, con-
testants for the awards must be ac-
tive members of La Sociedad Hispan-
ica. The awards are given. Prof.
Mercado pointed out, "to the active
members of the club who will derive
the most good from the scholarship
and the trip to Mexico."
For all students who are inter-
ested in taking trips to Mexico, a
special meeting will be held at 4 p.m.
EWT today in Rm. 302 of the Ro-
mance Language Building for the
purpose of answering questions about
Mexico. A well-informed person who
has been in Mexico, Prof. Mercado
said, will answer such questions as
what to wear, how to get acquainted,
travelling connections, expenses and
places to see in Mexico.

"The Gregorian Chant", an illus-

the Sacred Heart Seminary in De-

"This system was supposed to be
very democratic," Wilfred B. Shaw,
Director of Alumni Relations, said.
"It placed the emphasis on the sub-
,Ject rather than on the glade."
But with the University chapter
of Phi Beta Kappa in its fifth year,
a more accurate system of grading
became necessary, Shaw explained.
"A new tendency in the atti-
tude toward narks and. special
distinctions bean to be notice-
able; the old belief that such re-
wards set up false goals and en-
couraged an undesirable type of
competition have been abandoned,"
is the notation on the grading sys-
tem found in the University Ency-
clopedic Survey, Part Il, Organ-
izations Services and Alumni.
At first the system operated on a
three point basis, but in September,
1937, the present system was, inau-
gurated in the majority of the schools
of the University.
The purpose behind the four-point
system is to raise the University
scholastic standard. Under a three-
point plan, the student had to earn
120 grade points to graduate, but he
received at least a C on every course
he passed.
Under the present system, it is
possible to fall lower than a C and
still pass a course. Thus, it is neces-
sary to balance anything below a C.
Before the student had to make a
C average on the number of courses
he passed; now he has to make a C
average on all the courses he triesI
to pass.

The Science Research Club, whose
president this year is Prof. Leon
Strong of the Department of Anat-
omy, is a campus organization very
important to the University, accord-
ing to Prof. Strong.
"The high scientific morale of the
investigators of the campus is due,
in part, to the activities of this club,"
Prof. Strong believes. Such an or-
ganization is good for the University,
Indeed, any aggregation of scholars,
especially one of scholars engaged in
active research, has an excellent
effect on the intellectual atmosphere
of an institution of learning, accord-
ing to Prof. Strong. Michigan stu-
dents should realize the importance
of this, he said.
Club Interests
The club is interested in "the mena-
surable approach to discovery," Prof.
Strong said in an interview. Its mem-
bership consists of faculty men and
graduate students representing all
departments of scientific work offered
at the University. An unwritten re-
quirement for admission is the pub-
lication of a scientific paper on some
research subject. Women are not
admitted, since they have a reseai'ch
club of their own.
Soon after the turn of the century,
a group of faculty men organized
the Research Club, and in 1902 a
younger group, inspired by their ex-
ample, organized a Junior Research
Club. This latter name was recently
changed to Science Research Club.
Papers Presented
At each meeting two papers are

presented, about something a person
has discovered, how he went about
this, the possible consequences of
the discovery. Prof. Strong remarks
that criticism is always free and
frank, and is very helpful to the one
presenting the paper. He feels that
the greatest benefit derived is the
realization that all science interlocks.
