Health Service
Reports Drop
In Illness Rate
Student Health Higher
Now Than in May '44
"Student health has been unusually
favorable this year," Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe, Director of the University
Healtl Service, said yesterday.
Chance is the only explanation for
most of the variation in sickness rates
among students in the months of
April and May, 1944 and 1945, Dr.
Forsythe added,. That the total num-
ber of clinic calls, infirmary admis-
sions, and University Hospital admis-
sions per 1,000 students enrolled in
the University have decreased in. May,
1945, as compared to May, 1944, is
indicated by the Health Service's
monthly report. The number of x-
ray examinations, acute appendicitis
cases, and fractures also decreased in
May, 1945.
Colds in general, glandular fever,
and German measles, on the other
hand, have been more abundant in
May, 1945, than they were in May,
1944. There was also considerable
variation in sickness rates between
the months of April and May for
each of these years.
Offered Jobs
Skills To Determine
Type of Employment
DAYTON, O., June 13 -(A)- The
Air Technical Service Command of
the AEF is going virtually to the bed-
sides of returned wounded aircrew-
men who are eligible for discharge,
to offer them Civil Service employ-
ment in line with skills acquired in
More Wanted
Colonel Ralph Memo, Chief of
ATSC base service personnel at
Wright Field, said today that approx-
imately 900 veterans had taken ad-
vantage of the command's two-
months old placement program "and
we want more."
Thus assured a quick return to
civilian jobs, the returnees are being
distributed among 127 ATSC install-
ations throughout the United States.
Officer On Tour
"A gunner who loses an arm in
combat has lost none of his skill as
an armaments expert," explained one
officer, midway of a tour of AAF con-
valescent centers, "A pilot incapaci-
tated for further flight duty may be.
just the man we need for laboratory
flight research. A radio operator,
disqualified for combat, may find
exactly the job to suit him as a ci-

vilian radio technician."
Colonel Henry W. Berg, chief of
ATSC civilian personnel, said every
effort is being made to employ dis-
charged veterans "as long as vacan-
cies exist and in capacities that will
make use of their skills in a manner
beneficial both to them and to the
war effort."
Dean Keniston
To Give Speech
"Chapultepec, San Francisco and
the Road Beyond" will be the subject
of a speech to be given by Dr.
Hayward Keniston, dean of the Col-
lege of Literature, Science, and the
Arts, at the annual dinner meeting
of the World Study Council of De-
troit on Thursday, June 21.
Dr. Keniston was Cultural Rela-
tions Attache at the U. S. Embassy
in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from
October, 1942, to October, 1944.

the van, fought hard but unsuccess-
France and the United States from
having a veto over peaceful settle-
ment of disputes.
The big powers had put it squarely
up to them to accept a complete veto
or run the risk that the great nations
wouldn't ratify the charter for a new
United Nations organization.
Yalta Formula Upheld
On the showdown, the opposition
mustered a skimpy two votes against
the veto-voting formula worked out
at the Roosevelt-Churchill-Stalin
meeting at Yalta this spring.
Fifteen nations abstained from vot-
The voting formula will require
unanimity among the Big Five on
all ballots in the League's Security
Council on action to preserve peace.
The veto would be inapplicable to
peaceful settlement of a dispute to
which one of the great powers was
a party and hence would be barred
from voting.
Formula Explained
The formula applying to the 11-
member council says:
1. Each member should have one
2. Decisions on procedural mat-
ters such as discussion of a dispute
should be made by an affirmative
vote of any seven members.
3. Decisions on "all other mat-
ters" should be made by an affirma-
tive vote of seven members, includ-
ing the concurring votes of all the
Big Five, provided that on peaceful
settlement a party to a dispute should
abstain from voting.
With the veto issue settled-ex-
cept for the formality of ratification
in a commission and in a full plen-
ary session of the conference, dele-
gates saw the path of their delibera-
tions smoothing out.
Unions Express
Oppositio nto
Peaceuime Draft
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June 13- Labor
unions expressed vigorous opposition
today to peacetime draft proposals.
Before the house postwar military
policy committee which has been
studying the plan, spokesmen for the
American Federation of Labor, the
Congres of Industrial Organizations,
and the United Automobile Workers
(CIO) united in urging improved
health and educational facilities in-
stead of universal military training.
The AFL's views were presented by
Lewis G. Hines, national legislative
representative; the CIO's by Nathan
E. Cowan, chairman of the legisla-
tive committee, and the UAW's by
Loren Gray, Detroit, of the UAW-
CIO veterans' department.
"We want the fighters and the
workers to decide their children's fu-
ture," Cowan said, "not the arm-
chair strategists far removed from
the tragedies of battles and the in-
conveniences of mushroom cities."
Hines advocated "a comprehensive
program of improved education and
health service" as a substitute for
peacetime draft legislation.
Gray replaced R. J. Thomas, who
had been scheduled to present the
UAW's case.
He urged that Congress defer ac-
tion "at least until the present war
is over and until we have had an
opportunity to try to build a lasting
peace through international friend-
ship and cooperation."

Room, Board;
Help in Homes
Girls Enceouragedl
By Dean Bromage
Wmen students who have been
earning part of their expenses at the
University of Michigan by working
in private homes for their room and
board this year have made a great
success of the undertaking, accord-
ing to Mrs. Mary C. Bromage, assist-
ont dean of women.
Householders Satisfied
The householders, chiefly faculty
families, have expressed satisfaction
with the arrangement which is based
on three hours of housework, per-
formed daily by the student in return
for her room and full board, Mrs.
Brorr age said.
Dua to the housing shortage, it is
expected that students who might
ordinarily seek other employmenit
will prefer to work for room and
board during the summer or fall
terms and thus make sure of a place
to live.
Students To Apply
Students wishing to secure room
and board by working for it in this
way should apply now at the Office
of the Dean of Women where they
will fill out employment application
cards and be interviewed by Mrs.
Householders, particularly those
connected with the University, are
requested to notify the Office of
the Dean of Women if they wish to
have students live and work in their
homes now or next fall.
Biology Station
Will Provide
The University biological station,
located between Douglas and Burt
Lakes in northern Michigan, will
again this summer provide an out-
door teaching laboratory for approxi-
mately 140 students.
Enrollment at the station includes
students from 25 states, from Mass-
achusetts to California and from
Minnesota to Florida, Brazil, and
Puerto Rico. At present, 84 women
are enroled, with 32 single men and
seven married couples. About half
the group are graduate students in
the field of botany and biology.
Registration will be June 23, and
classes will begin June 25 and run
for eight weeks. Dr. Alfred H. Stock-
ard will return as director, and most
of the former faculty will remain.
Before the war students came from
as far as the Upper Peninsula. Trav-
erse City, and Grayling in their field
work. However, gas restrictions and
old motor equipment are expected to
limit them to a 25-mile radius this
