Plans to vitalize adult education
projects by better satisfying the needs
of the people, and by securing their
participation in one planning and
conduct of the program were discuss-
ed at the final discussion panel yes-
terday of a two day meeting of state
leaders in adult education.
McClusky Leads Discussion
The discussion, under the direction
of Prof. Howard Y. McClusky, direct-
or of the University's adult education
program, stressed the need for the
use of visual aids, radio; and more
printed pamphlets in simple, attract-
ive form. The group considered
means of taking the program to the
people, into the shops, offices, and

local libraries. Education through the
presentation of fine paintings in pub-
lic places, and through programs or-
ganized for clubs were also discussed.
Two-Week College Proposed
Resident centers releasing people
from their work for a one or two
week course at a "people's college" or
family camp where children would
be cared for while parents studied
were given attention. These "resi-
dence schools" would correspond to
ordinary colleges in that they would
free students from the responsibility
of work during the term; it was pro-
posed that expenses be covered by
the national'government.


of ten, she went to Louisiana when
her owner moved his family to a new
plantation there during the Civil
I War. She was a nursemaid and
house servant to the family for
nearly five years, when the war fin-
ally ended.
Her education did not start until
after "freedom" and then "no one
ever talked to me about voting."
This fall she received a telephone
call from a University student who
was aiding in the registration drive
in this area.
"I told the young lady I didn't
know about voting so she came down
to the house and talked to me." Mrs.
Walker explained.
Later a notary public was brought
down to take her registration and aid
her in preparing a ballot.
When asked about the Civil War,
sl said, I heard the boss and his

Sergeant Lauds
U' Hospital Unit
Now in Frane
The University of Michigan's hos-
pital unit, now serving in France,
received high praise in a letter sent
to President Alexander G. Ruthven
by Walter Opacki, sergeant in a
quartermaster truck company serv-
ing overseas.
The sergeant reveals his story in
between the lines of appreciation
voiced in the letter. He had been in
a serious condition as a result of an
abscessed molar whichinfected his
right cheek bone when he was finally
brought to the University hospital
unit. There Maj. J. B. Farrior oper-
ated successfully.
The University hospital unit left
here June 7, 1942 and served in Eng-
land until shortly after D-Day. Then
it moved to France and has been
operating behind the lines ever since.
The staff of both doctors and nurses
is composed entirely of University
staff members.
