Anneal Convention
Diseusses Proper Role
Of English in Schools
The important part that the teach-
ing of English in the secondary
schools and colleges can play in the
development of American citizen-
ship and as a necessary tool in prep-
aration for an active life in indu-
stry and the professions was the
general topic of the speakers at the
annual convention of the National
Council of Teachers of English which
met at Columbus last week.
Importance of English Stressed '
This recognition of the strong place
of English in the curriculum by a
group of educators who are not
teachers of English, said Prof. C. D.
Thorpe of the Department of Eng-
lish, is significant. Prof. Thorpe
attended the convention with Prof.
C. C. Fries, Mentor L. Williams, and
Morris Greenhut all of the English
The theme of the convention, "Eng-
lish Today and Tomorrow" provides
a background for a survey to be con-
ducted to find the most adequate way
for the subject of English to be of
service in the post-war period.
Suggest Additions to Curriculum
Several speakers suggested that
courses in American civilization and
culture be part bf the curriculum in
English, and one member recom-
mended that wherever possible the
term "English" be replaced by "Am-

ject of study in the coming year to

could hardly call it a routine combat
patrol. For one thing, it failed to
accomplish its mission, it was a
motorized patrol, and that's strictly
not routine for infantry.
There were other reasons, too.
The order came down, "get us a
German prisoner and bring him
back alive," and Company B drew
the short straw.
In the late afternoon two jeep loads
went high-balling down a muddy road
toward the enemy. Lt. Howard Bell
of New York and Staff Sgt. Edward
Dagenhart of Dodge City, Kansas,
holder of the silver star with oak
leaf cluster, commanded the two
A mile from the enemy front the
bespectacled Dagenhart spotted a
German in a field. He was too far
away for capture, but he had to be
silenced or he might give an alarm.
So the Kansas killed the German
with the jeep's machine gun, with-
out stopping.
Five miles inside enemy territory
they skidded to a halt in front of a
road block and hit the dirt. Some 25
Germans behind the barricade pour-
ed out merciless fire.
When the Germans took cover the
fire eased off, the patrol piled into
the jeeps, turned around and tore out
for home.
They hadn't accomplished their
mission, but they had killed sev-
Activities Desk

Scroll, women's honor society, will

All girls interested in taking part

of time it will take will be discussed.

eral Germans and were lucky to be
a live.
But it wasn't O(er..
"We only had about a mile left
to go when the Krauts stopped us
again." said Dagenhart. "This time
they had us surrounded. Bullets were
coming from bushes, trees, even a
nearby house. We all hit the side
of the road."
But now they had rifle ammunition
again. After a 20-minute fight they
managed to reach the jeeps in the
middle of the roahd, but somebody
had to cover the getaway before they
dared jump up and expose themselves
in the vehicles.
So Dagenhart, PFC Jimmy Oris of
Johnstown, Pa., and Pvt. Leo. Kell of
Pensacola, Fla., elected themselves.

critical list, George H. Gabler, county
salvage. committee chairman yester-

lection the biggest in Washtenaw's

need to save newspapers, magazines,
and cartons," Gabler explained, "we
now add to this list, envelopes, writ-
ing paper, paper bags, shoe boxes. and
breakfast food containers."
"At the same time," Gabler said,
"do not overlook silk, woolen, cotton,
and rayon rags, in addition to rugs
carpets, drapes, and old mattresses."
Persons living in the city should
bundle their waste paper and place
it on the curb. Anyone finding it
impossible to place their material
at the curb, should call 26551 and the
salvage committee will arrange to
pick it up.
