300-Page Yearbook
Is One of Nation's Best
Managing Editor, 1946 Michiganensian
Of special interest to editors and
workers on high school yearbooks are
the opportunities for valuable experi-
ence offered to freshmen and sopho-
more tryouts of the Michiganensian
staff. Michigan's outstaxfding year-
book is the product of an editorial
and a business staff with headquart-
ers in the Student Publications Build-
Tryouts on the editorial staff as-
sist in the preparation and assem-
bly of photographs and copy for
the 300-page annual. In addition
to writers and photographers, the
'Ensian editorial staff has work for
typists and persons interested in
lay-out and design. The entire
editorial staff attends regular meet-
ings held once a week.
For those with a business bent there
is a separate tryout staff that assists
in handling all the 'Ensian business
matters. The tryout has the oppor-
tunity to acquire a knowledge of the
business end of publishing in practical
work. His job is to sell the 'Ensian
and handle accounts, contracts, ad-
vertising and circulation.
The most deserving members of'
both tryout groups receive compli-
mentary copies of the 'Ensian and are
eligible to petition for junior and sen-
ior positions on the staff when they
have reached the end of their sopho-

Engine School
Is 10th Largest
Devoted Facilities To
Research During War
"Students in our Engineering
School may spend 20 per cent of their
time in taking courses in other schools
of the University," Ivan D. Crawford,
Dean of the College of Engineering,
said this week.
In normal times, the School is the
eighth largest of its kind and ranks
second nationally in enrollment. Due
to a reduction in enrollment because
of the war, at present the college is
the tenth largest in the country and
has the fourth highest enrollment.
The University offers special cours-
es to engineers in the departments of
mathematics, physics, chemistry, ec-
onomics, business administration and
humanistic branches of learning.
At the present time, there is a
large enrollment of Navy V-12 train-
ees in the engineering college and
while these have added to the deplet-
ed freshman enrollment figure, the
number of students attending the
school is below the pre-war figure.
On Accelerated Schedule
With the outbreak of the war, the
Engineering College adoptbd a three-
term per year schedule, so that the
engineering student can receive his
degree in two years and eight months
provided the accelerated schedule is
War research is being carried on in
the engineering laboratories.
In aiding the war effort, many
members of the faculty have carried
on research programs, either here
on campus or outside of the Univer-
sity. Many have left the University
on leaves of absence either to serve
in the armed forces or to serve as
civilian research workers.

Many Science Courses Taught
Courses in sciences and their ap-
plications are abundant in the pro-
grams of the Engineering College.
While courses in English and econ-
omics are included, the opportunities
for the study of literature, foreign
languages, history and other human-
istic studies are limited. University
officials advise the student tc
spend an extra few semesters in
gaining a knowledge of the human-
istic studies, if he is seriously inter-
ested in these studies, before enter-
ing the engineering College.
The engineering faculty does not
encourrge students to concentrate at
too early u. point of study. There-
fore, during the first year of work,
the student is not allowed to commit
himself to a specialized program of

colleges.'s Prof. Tenbrook made t e

habit of choosing a chairman from

Campus Fraternities Re-opeii;
Rushing Registration Begins

All that noise you've been hearing,
lately results from the activity of
campus fraternities who are open-
ing their doors with a bang.
After a three-year war-time dearth
of prospective pledges which forced
a majority of fraternities to close
their houses for the duration, the
following fraternities will again be
in operation this semester:
Houses not taking non-fraternity
men: Beta Theta Pi, Phi Delta Theta,
Phi Sigma Delta, Sigma Alpha Mu,
Sigma Chi and Zeta Beta Tau. Of
these, only the Phi Delts and Sigma
Chi operated their houses through-
out the war years. .
Houses with non-fraternity room-
ers: Alpha Tau Omega, Chi Phi, Del-
ta Upsilon. Pi Lambda Phi, Sigma
Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Phi Epsilon.
Theta Chi, Theta Delta Chi and Zeta
Psi. The Theta Delta Chi house was
open throughout the war.
The nine houses which are per-
mitting outsiders to live with them
are operatng under special arrange-
ment with the University. They are
required to have a house mother in
residence, but are operating as a
fraternity in all other respects.
15 Operate Houses
Fraternities residing, in chapter
houses this semester .will total 15.
This compires with .the .approxi-
mately 30 which operated their own
houses before the war period.
Approximately ten fraternities are
scheduled to continue rushing and
pledging activities, even though they
have not yet decided to re-open their
houses for the present. For the most

All fraternities on campus are gov-
erned by the Inter-fraternity Coun-
cil which is made up of house presi-
dents of all fraternities. The IFC
sets the rules regulating all rushing
and pledging activities as well as
initiating and sponsoring inter-fra-
ternity projects.
A booth will be set tip in the
Union all this week where students
desiring to sign up for fraternity
rushing this fall may do so. In
order to pledge a fraternity, it is
required that all students must be
registered with the IFC.
