Walton To Lead Engine
Council in Fall Term
Representing all students in the
engineering school, the Engineering
Council is composed entirely of stu-
dents and has responsibility for ad-
ministering the school's honor system
and conducting elections.
New officers elected for the fall
semester are Charles Walton, '46,
president; F. X. Nutto, '45, vice-
president; Robert Dolph, '46, secre-
tary and Fred Dyson, '46, treasurer.
Each class in the school has repre-
sentatives on the Council. Freshmen
representatives will be elected during
the first few weeks of the fall term.
At present plans are under way
for revising the provisions of the
honor system. This system places it
on the student's honor not to cheat
during examinations. The instruct-
or is not present in the room where
the exam is being given and each
student signs a pledge to the effect*
that he "has not given nor received
aid on this examination." The Coun-
cil conducts disciplinary action under
the system for all engineering stu-
dents with the exception of service-

three girl medical technologists to

gan Program in Medical Technology

Frank H. Bethell, Medical Director.
The program leads to the Bachelor

ing-similar to a physician's intern-
ship-are to be examined by the
Board of Registry of the American
Society of Clinical Pathologists. Pass-
ing, they will receive a second certi-
ficate and the right to use the let-
ters M. T. after their names.
About 44 students,,all girls, are now
taking the courses which are among
the most difficult offered by the-
University. Men students. are not
encouraged because the field is gen-
erally considered to be woman's work,
Dr. Eggleton said.
Legion's Youngest Head
The commander of the new Ameri-
can Legion Post--the George Ham
Cannon Post-Leonard Cavanaugh is
an Air Force veteran of four years
and is reputed to be the youngest
Legion commander in the nation at
at the corner of Haven and Hill, was
purchased two years ago for $30,000
by the Michigan B'nai Brith Hillel!
Foundation, Inc. and since that time
$10,000 has been raised with which
to retire the mortgage.
In addition to furnishing room and
board to 11 girls, the Michigan chap-
ter serves as a recreational, educa-
tional and religious center for Jewish
students and friends on campus.
The chapter has met the war emer-
gency by instituting a varied pro-
gram of war activities and opening
its facilities and its activities to ser-
vicemen free of charge.
Under the leadership of Rabbi Je-
hudah M. Cohen, an elected student1
council of 25 members and a staff
of student directors, the Founda-
tion provides for its mremiers dances,
record concerts, personal counsel, re-
ligious services on Friday nights and
on major holidays, picnics and study
facilities, a fine collection of classi-
cal and popular phonograph record
The Hillel News, chapter newspaper
provided an opportunity for those
who seek an outlet for literary abili-
ties and the fully equipped dark-
room is available for use by amateur
photographers. The well-stocked,
neon-lighted and quiet Louis Weiss
Memorial library is well suited for
studying purposes and its collection
of books is constantly implemented
with current best-sellers on a variety
of subjects. In one of the several
lounges of the building students will
find a rack of some 20 or more popu-
lar magazines and newspapers. Also
located on the first floor are several
radio-phonograph sets. another be-
ing situated in the music room. The
second floor game room, with a table-
tennis table and equipment is a
popular recreational facility with
students using the Foundation.
An important war service spon-
sored and supervised by the Founda-
tion is done by the Red Cross Surgi-
cal Dressing unit, a group of women
from the University and the town
who meet weekly to make bandages.
The group has received official Red
Cross commendation for its consist-
ently enviable record. War stamps
and bonds are always on sale at the
As a social center, a home away
from home, the Hillel Foundation
performs what is perhaps its chief
function. This has been amplified
during the war as the foundation
facilities are open to use for the
many servicemen on campus and the
Nisei have been officially welcomed
to use the building as a social center.
The frequent dances held at the
Foundation, especially the widely-
known Hillel "mixers" held at the
beginning of each semester and pro-
viding a fine opportunity for students
of all faiths to meet, are merely part
of the extensive recreational pro-
gram. Picnics in the warmer months,
"cost-suppers" and record concerts
are some of the other social activities
offered to students.
Discussions led by faculty members
and more erudite student leaders are
frequently presented 'at the Founda-
tion, which invites prominent out
side speakers to the campus to ad-
Avukah, student Zionist organiza-
tion on campus, besides holding
weekly discussion groups on prob-
lems of Jewish interest, also conducts
recreational affairs for its members
and sponsors outside speakers.
