The famous Henry Aldrich comedy,
written by Clifford Goldsmith, is the
hilarious account of Henry's trials
and tribulations in High School. Pro-
tecting himself in a hostile world of
teachers and parents, Henry gets so
involved in complexities that he be-
comes a source of wonder to every-
one that knows him.
These crises of High School life
provide side-splitting comedy and a
touch of nostalgia which makes an
audience sympathetic to the adoles-
cent. Having endured three acts of
youthful frustration, Henry finally
discovers that a sympathetic school
principal is on his side and will help
him to settle his problems.

War's End Has Not Solved
Problem of Nurse Shortage

Plans for the erection of a 500-bed
tuberculosis sanatorium to be located
near University Hospital were an-
nounced today by the Veterans Ad-
ministration, which said that Presi-
dent Truman had approved the proj-
The spokesman for the Veterans
Administration also disclosed plans
for the building of 200 bed units at
Grand Rapids and Saginaw. The new
hospital here will be larger than the
state institution at Howell which has
a capacity of 444.
Although Dean Albert C. Fursten-
berg of the medical school had been
questioned concerning the feasibility
of obtaining the services of staff
members in the event that such an
institution should be built here, the
announcement came as a surprise to
most university officials. Maj. Gen.
Paul R. Hawley, acting surgeon gen-
eral' of the Veterans Administration
told Furstenberg "you might someday
have a big veterans' hospital in Ann

"The shortage of nurses is still
acute, despite the fact that the war
is over," Miss Rhoda Reddig, director
of the School of Nursing, declared
Nurses who served in the war are
now on terminal leave, some of them
planning to remain off duty for over
a year, and though the problem will
be a little less pressing when they re-
turn, it will not be solved, she stated.
The cadet nursing program, which at-
tracted a great number of girls dur-
ing the war, terminated Oct. 15. Only
those registered at that time will be
allowed to complete their training at
government expense.
Demand Heightened
The demand for nurses has been
heightened since the end of the war,
with the opening of new veterans'
hospitals and the expansion of public
health programs, Miss Reddig pointed

out. "In the way of responsible posi-
tions," she emphasized, "the nursing
profession has definitely something to
offer. Teaching and administrative
positions are available in hospitals
and schools throughout the country,
especially in Washington."
'Excellent Facilities'
Miss Reddig said that there are
excellent facilities available to stu-
dents of the School of Nursing. The
school ranks high scholastically, and
it is affiliated with the University
hospital and with a large research

the medical school would be glad to

It's The Dog-gonest
Thing We've Seen
A dozen students stopped near

of attention watching a medium-
sized black and white dog.

seemed completely unaware of his

seemed ready to pounce, and he

1931 and 1932, the Nobel Prize in
physics. His latest research concerns

"nightmarish never-never branch of
science where solid matter begins to

Dr. Pauli, a Viennese, has been as..
sociated with Princeton's Institute foi

the ceremonies will honor only his
work done prior to the war, since war
work is still necessarily secret.

AT PEARL HARBOR HEARING-Lt. Gen. Leonard Gerow (left), War
Plans Chief in 1941, testified at the Pearl Harbor inquiry that he is
"willing to accept the resnonsibility" for the War Department's failure
to send Lt. Gen. Walter C. Short (right), former Army commander in
Hawaii, additional warnings to put Hawaii on full alert before the

Deposited in reserve fund ... .

On the basis of these figures, the
reserve fund for 500 units will be
built up at the rate of $150,000 a year.
Estimating that these units will be
used for three years, a total reserve
fund of $450,000 will be available at
that time. Contingent upon expendi-
tures involved in dismantling the
units, it is believed that a major por-
tion of this fund will be available for
return to the State of Michigan.
We consider the following points to
be pertinent to a consideration of this
1. Use of these units at Willow Run
has two specific disadvantages:
a. The returning veteran will have
the same type of barracks life
that he has been forced to live
in military camps. It makes it
impossible for him to participate
in community life or to obtain
the kind of social recreation that
he and his family have been look-
ing forward to.
b. It means that the veteran will
spend two hours a day traveling
back and forth (at a cost of $6.00
per month) and that he will be
unable to take full advantage of
university life and facilities.
2. Housing veterans in these units
will help to relieve the housing short-
age in the State as a whole by drain-
ing off 1,000 families from individual
communities throughout the State
and locating them in Ann Arbor.
1. We need assurance from the
State government that funds will be
made available.
2. We need allocations from the
Federal Housing Authority for 500
units for this purpose.
3. The Ann Arbor City Council has
indicated a willingness to provide
sites if the units are allocated and the
money is made available.

Of Education
Seen in Future
"Immediate results of the Army
and Navy training program will bring
more and- better aptitude tests and
educational designs to make the
school day and the school hour more
interesting," Prof. Raleigh Schorling,
of the School of Education, said yes-
terday in a lecture before education
The future will bring a great de-
mand for self-instructional books and
volumes containing more subjects
closer to'young people to avoid "stuf-
finess and dry treatment," Dr. Schor-
ling continued:
More audio-visual educational de-
vices are in store for children as a
result of the armed services' exper-
ience in training 12,000,000 men, he
Dr. Schorling declared the future
lines of interest would be directed
toward the study of culture of foreign
people, their languages and customs

Javanese Uprising Blaimed on Small Group

A small group of educated men and
some 200,000 half-educated Javanese
have caused the uprising in Java, Dr.
Maurice Senstius of the geology de-
partment, who was born and raised
in Java, said in an interview yester-
None of the princes of the four
Javanese principalities have par-
ticipated in the uprising, he said.
It is known that many of the insti-
gators were given special training
in Japan, Dr, Senstius said, add-
ing that the Japanese were not
only lax in letting the natives get
hold of weapons, but also had
trained a home army m modern
The island of Java occupies only
one fifteenth of the total land sur-
face of the Malay Archipelago, which
constitutes such a vast area that if
it were superimposed on the U. S. it
would*extend 400 miles east of Long
Island. Within the 3,000 or more is-
lands which make up the archipelago
some 70 million people are living.
By far the great majority of these
people, Dr. Senstius said, are not tak-
ing part in the uprising because they
realize that the have better security
under Dutch rule than under unre-
strained native rule. This is dem-
onstrated, he declared, by the fact
that the Javanese population, under
the security of the Dutch rule, has
jumped from five million to 48 mil-
lion within the last 125 years.
The majority of the people, lie
said, feel that the insurgent group
would be unable to find a rule to
suit the mixture of Malay peoples,
since the insurgents are not fa-

miliar with the customs and lan-
guages of the rest of Indonesia.
The Dutch rule, Dr. Senstius said,
has been an enlightened one. The
Netherland's government from the
start appointed native rulers and
chieftians from the nobility to ad-
minister the country according to
the native customary laws, under
white supervision. Theroughout the
Malay Archipelago some 250 native
princes rule with a fair degree of lib-
Nor have the hutch abused the
privileges of the natives, Dr. Sens-
tius said, pointing out that since
1870 no white man has been al-
lowed to own land outright in any
part of the East Indies. Land is
leased from the natives for a pe-
riod not to exceed 75 years for the
growing of perennial crops and
from year to year for annual
crops, lie said, explaining that the
Dutch regulate land usage in order
to prevent famine.
Since 1870, he added, not a single
cent of revenue has been sent to the
Netheralnds. All revenue has been
used for the improvement of roads,
railroads, education, and like bene-
The Dutch have established
schools and universities in Java,
Dr. Senstius said, adding that, by
the end of 1930, about 21 thousand
government schools had been es-
tablished with more than 2 million
pupils, not counting the numerous
private schools without govern-
ment subsidy. At least one tech-
nological school, two medical
schools, and one law college of

university grade have been estab-
lished for the natives, he said, and
many students continue their edu-
cation in the Netherlands.
It is through Dutch efforts that
the Malay language is becoming a
universal language, he asserted, and
that about one thousand free public
libraries and a central book pub-
lishing and distributing agency have
been established for the distribution
of literature in the native languages,
