Postwar Plans
Include Larger
School Staffs
Specialists Required To Give
Students Special Instruction;
Guidance Will Play Major Part
"Additional numbers of teachers
will be needed after the war to
properly staff the elementary and
high schools," James B. Edmondson,
dean of the School of Education, said
in an interview yesterday.
Dean Edmondson went on to sayj
that there will be an increased num-
ber of specialists necessary in post-
war school systems.
Vocational Work .Stressed
More attention will be devoted to
giving students instruction in voca-
tional work, courses such as child
care, home nursing, and problems of
family living will also be stressed
and a number of schools will offer
courses in consumer education, ei-
ther as a separate subject or as vari-
ous units of several courses, he as-
Guidance will occupy a major rule
in school systems, he continued, and
specialists will be empwyed to sup-
plement the work of regular class-
room teachers. Service of other ex-
perts will be available to students
needing instruction in remedial read-
ing, mental hygiene, and similar
fields, according to Dean Edmonson.
Active Community Role
Teachers will continue to take an"
active part in the postwar communi-
ty, in continuation of their partici-
pation and leadership in public activ-
ities during the war, he said. Accord-
ing to Dean Edmonson, "No group
has taken a more active part in com-
munity activities during the war
period than the teachers, and I think
this will continue."
Courses preparing teachers will
includeincreased instructionrelated
to the nature of learning and to the
actual problems with which schools
and communities are faced. Work
will be offered in guidance and in
various other fields of specialization,
Dean Edmonson concluded.

Houses Governed
By Honor System1
CONTACT RULES have been completely abolished during the first semes-
ter and following the formal rushing period, according to a recent
announcement by the Panhellenic rushing committee.
Coming at the close of a long period of debate concerning the rules
which governed the intermingling of independent and affiliated women, the
abolishment represents a constructive effort to improve relations between
the large group of independent women and the smaller number of sorority
women on campus.
Contact rules merely accentuated the barrier between independent and
sorority women by arbitrarily depriving them of normal contact with one
another. Moreover, the situation was aggravated by an inadequate campus
understanding of the rules, which resulted in new freshmen wondering
if they might even speak to friends who wore a sorority pin.
A large part of the aim of deferred rushing was defeated by the very
rules which governed it. Coeds, theoretically, were supposed to become more
familiar with sorority groups during the fall semester so that when rushing
actually came, they would not be completely at a loss to choose. Such an
idealistic arrangement was virtually impossible under contact rules, since
contacts leading to familarity were banned completely.
Probably the most regrettable effect of the rules was upon the women,
especially upperclassmen, who had no intention of rushing, but found that
many of their friends were forbidden to visit them in dormitories or even
meet them for a coke.
ARGUMENTS AGAINST the abolishment of contact rules have thus far
centered about one objection - "dirty rushing." Recognizing this
objection, the rushing committee has announced that a voluntary honor
code will govern the actions of all sororities before and after the deferred
rushing period.
There will be no enforcement of the honor system, it will be up to every
group to conduct itself in the way it would want every other group to act.
Certainly, college women have high enough principles to observe such an
honor code.
The Michigan campus has a reputation which differentiates it from
many of the eastern and southern colleges. U. of M. is reputedly a univer-
sity in which it does not matter whether a coed is a member of Assembly
or Panhellenic. Both organizations are strong and equally desirable; both
provide the extra-curricular activities necessary _to a mature college
existence. -By LYNNE FORD

Lily-White Legs
Tan In a Minute
When summer weather comes and
cceds sport tan stockingless legs,
those of the fair-skinned clan can
always resort to deception with leg
With a little care it can be a
clever deception. For a more "nat-

be diluted with water, eliminating
that "gooey" look.
All women in Regiment V of
the USO who do not plan to be

their membership cards before
