Mortenson Warns All I
Of Weather Hazards
Announcing an intensified state-
wide pedestrian protection campaign,
Police Chief Sherman:H. Mortenson
said yesterday, "It is our job to save
everyone from injury-all students,
Army, Navy and civilian, must be
doubly cautious now that winter is
here to stay."
Sponsored by the Automobile Club
of Michigan and the Ann Arbor
Police Department, the campaign will
continue through'Jan. 1, Chief Mor-
Three Accidents Cited
"Since the campaign started Oct.
15," he said, "there have been three
pedestrian accidents on campus, all
of which could have been avoided if
caution had, been exercised."
Cars are one year older and streets
will be just as ice-coated this year as
ever, Chief Mortenson explained.
Military Will Participate
Both Army and Navy officers head-
ing campus training programs have
agreed to participate in the protec-
tion campaign, he indicated.
A Navy order effective Nov. 18
reads, "Trainees going to 0800 classes
will cross the walk in front of the
Union marked with yellow lines. This
regulation will remain in effect
throughout the winter term."
Lt.-Col. Rideway P. Smith, campus'
Army unit's executive officer, issued
the following order, Nov. 28: "In
cooperation with the safety program
of the City Police Department and
BUDDIES REMEMBER-Baby Jef-
ferson Banks, Jr., clutches a $100
rear bond , purchased with money
sent from the Western front by
doughboy buddies of his dad. The
father, died in action two months
before the baby was born. Mrs.
Banks holds the infant.
University authorities, all members
of this command, when crossing the
streets of Ann Arbor are directed to
utilize the established crosswalks
marked or unmarked."

Editor's Note: The following feature was

member of the Michigan Union tryout
staff, Arthur S. Shufro.
The University of Michigan Men's
Glee Club is one student organization
which has continued in operation
during the last few years despite the
vast changes most of the campus has
undergone. While its activities are
restricted by the times, the Glee
Club serves the very important func-
tion of being a reminder of pre-war
college days to a war-minded cam-
The history of the Men's Glee
Club goes back to the year 1889.
It now boasts an alumni of more
than two thousand members. In
the long years of its existence, it
has constantly thrilled audiencesj
all over the nation with its rousing
songs. Before the restrictions in
transportation, the club partici-
pated in annual concert tours
through the East and Mid-west.
These tours included a yearly con-
cert in Carnegie Hall in New York
The Glee Club also cooperated
with the Mimes organization in the
production of the popular Union
Opera. These are activities that will
return with the resumption of normal
The club, strictly a student organi-
zation, is independent of the Music
School and the Choral Union. Its
director is the very able Prof. David
Mattern of the Music School. Its
club officers include Richard Whea-
ton as president, and Dick Sokatch
as manager. The Men's Glee Club
now includes about fifty members.
There is still plenty of room for
men on campus who enjoy group
singing and are interested in the
club. All those who would like to
join are invited to attend the meet-
ings at 8 p.m.nWednesdays and
4:30 p.m. on Sundays.
The Michigan Union is the home
of the Men's Glee Club and the Glee
Club has taken part in many a Union
sponsored activity. The club made a
big hit at Kampus Kapers when the
boys led the audience in community
singing. Its songs were also acclaim-
ed at the recent University of Michi-
gan Club Banquet held at the Union.
Plans are now being made to have
the club sing at some future Union
With Christmas just around the
corner, the club will soon be serenad-
ing with Christmas songs. Whenever
a song fits the occasion, the Uni-

Evidence that Michigan men now
serving in medical units overseas are
carrying the true M' spirit into bat-
tle zone was shown in two letters
published in the Michigan Alumnus
of Dec. 2.
A sergeant who received medical
aid from the Michigan general hospi-
tal unit in France stated in a mes-
sage to the Dean of the Medical
"This is a letter of appreciation
and thanks to a great university
for its teachings to its medical
students. This hospital in France
where I was operated on-are your
"I was operated on for an infected'
maxilla bone on the right side of
my face, caused by an abscessed
molar. The doctor who did the opera-
tion, Major Farrior (Dr. Joseph B.
Farrior, M. S. '42, instructor in Otol-
aryngology), has and always will
have my heartfelt thanks for the
superb work he has done for me.
He knew his job well and did a mag-
nificent job, and that's why I am so
grateful to him, to the nurses, and to
the University of Michigan for its
"I am just a sergeant in a truck
company doing my small share in
the war effort here in France and it
made me feel on top of the world
again to be operated on and made
well, as prior to the operation I used
to have headaches and feel low at
times, especially when the days were
cold and rainy and damp.
"I will always have a high re-
gard for your university, and may-
be more so now as I myself am
Still in Effect
Reports that local employers may
hire an unlimited number of extra
employees during the coming holi-
day season without respect to labor
ceilings, were termed erroneous yes-
terday by Edward L. Cushman, Mi-
chigan War Manpower Commission
"All employment during that seas-
on will count against manpower ceil-
ings as established by the War Man-
power Commission," Cushman point-
"Employers whose Christmas man-
power needs require temporary ceil-
ing adjustments must request auth-
orization from the WMC," he con-
from the state of Michigan. Any
doctor or nurse I now meet and
that has your medical training will
always be held in respect and ad-
miiration as I have a sample of
your teaching to prove my point.
I just wanted to write to you,
Dean; and let you know how I feel
and I know there are many more
soldiers who feel the same way I
do. So keep up your good work
as we who need it appreciate it." j
The other letter addressed to Pres-I
ident Ruthven was from Major Gen-
eral Norman T. Kirk, the surgeon
general. In the message he spoke
of the 298th General Hospital unit
which is now in Belgium. The group
which is under the command of Lt.
Col. Walter Maddock was one of the
first of its kind to follow the in~vad-
ing forces to Normandy.
Because of their present loca-
tion they are being forced to car-
ry on their work under wartime
field conditions, which include
housing in tents for there are
concrete floors for only the hospi-
tal itself. This group of men left
Ann Arbor in June, 1942, and sail-
ed in October of that year for
The Major General in his letter
stated: "You have particular reason
to be proud of this work because
your University contributed so much
to the high standards of medical
care which the Army is now, in this
hour of need, able to make available
to its fighting men. I realize what
a serious deprivation it has been to
your University to meet its manifold
responsibilities with so many of its
ablest members in the 298th General
Hospital. I do want you to know,
however, that your contribution has
been of inestimable value to the Army
Medical Service, particularly to our

Because of the vast amount of
physical expansion during his tenure,
Burton was known as "the builder.".
Paralleling the rapid growth of
post-World War One, an enroll-
ment of approximately 18,000 stu-
dents has been estimated by the
University's present post-war build-
ing committee. With the exception
of a decline in enrollment during
the war, totals have shown a defi-
nite trend upward, reaching a high
of 13,295 in 1939 and 1940.
