Present NRO Members
Will Fill Peace Quota
No New Entries Expected In Spring Term;
Most Members Will Be Juniors and Seniors
Although the organization of a peacetime NROTC will be quite similar
to the pre-war set-up, there will be a few differences, Capt. W. V. Michaux,
Commaning Officer of Naval Activities here, said in an interview yesterday.
"The main difference is that it appears that the NROTC will be more
than filled to quota by those who were members under the war-time set-up
and will wish to continue in order to complete their college education," he

The Medical School has received
a grant of $15,000 from the W. K.

Albert C. Furstenberg announced
The money will be used for a

returning medical officers and ci-
vilian physicians.
The program has as its aims pro-

"Clinical Applications of the Basic
Sciences," will be the subject of

course is primarily for doctors who

Brief review courses in specialized
fields, varying from three days to a

til June.
Special clinical instruction for

Will Not Prescribe Courses
After this semester, the Navy will
not prescribe the courses a NROTC
member will take, other than a few
in basic naval science and tactics.
These will be reduced to approximate-
ly two-thirds the number of hours
required now, Capt. Michaux said.
Emphasis will be on basic college
courses to qualify students for civilian
careers, as well as to insure "a well-
rounded and well-educated graduate
with sufficient naval knowledge to
enable him to fill almost any general
junior officer billet in the Navy," he
Will Not Wear Uniforms
Because NROTC members will not
be on active duty, they will not wear
uniforms except for military cere-
monies and drills, he said, and they
will not be housed separately, in line
with the Navy's desire to avoid seg-
regating the group.
"In the meantime, the actual per-
manent peacetime organization has
not been approved by Congress as
yet, and we are forced to fall back on
the pre-war set-up. The Navy De-
partment has proposed to Congress
a definite act for a permanent Naval
Officer Training Corps," Capt. Mich-
aux said.
Serve as Ensign
Under this proposal, the "Holloway
Plan," the Navy would pay tuition,
books, laboratory fees, and $50 a
month expenses for the NROTC stu-
dent. He would, in return, serve as
an ensign for a period of 15 months
minimum to three years.
Greduates of the reserve training
program would be "fully equivalent"
to graduates 6f the Annapolis Naval
Academy and would receive equal pay,
Capt. Michaux said.
Four-Point Project
The plan for a NROTC program in
certain colleges is only part of a four-
point project sponsored by Senator
David I. Walsh (Dem.-Mass.), chair-
man of the Senate Naval Affairs Com-
The "Army-Navy Journal" of Nov.
10 quoted Senator Walsh as saying
that the plan would be used as a
"basis of study by Congress for mod-
ernizing and streamlining the Naval
Academy courses and Reserve train-
ing to best fit the needs of a strong
post-war Navy."

Shiel Requests
Housing Survey
A survey to determine the number
of men now in the navy units on cam-
pus who plan to continue their
schooling here next term, and the
number who will desire accommoda-
tions in University residence halls, is
being made at the request of F. C.
Shiel, Acting Director of Residence
Results of the survey, indicating
the number of accotmodations which
will be available in the West Quad
for other civilians, will be published
next week.
Although there is a normel decline
between the fall and spring enroll-
ment figures, the housing problem
will be increased by an additional ap-
proximately 2,000 veterans.
All of the East Quad, except the
third floor of Prescoot House, which
will be occupied by Army medics un-
til about June 30, will be used for
civilians next term.

May Rate
Evaluation of Faculty
May Start in Fall
Students in the College of Litera-
ture, Science and the Arts may be
asked to rate the effectiveness of
their instructors next year as part of
a plan for evaluating faculty services
The plan, promulgated in 1941, was
to be inaugurated -in 1941-42, but
was postponed because of the exodus
of students, Dean L. S. Woodburne
said yesterday.
"With the expected return of a
normal student body next fall, it is
assumed that the project will be
started," he said. "Student rating,
however, is only part of the whole

and effectiveness and his personal
Student rating blanks, unsigned,
will be classed according to sex, field
of concentration, class and grade-
point average.
As originally planned in 1941-42,
students enrolled in courses num-
bered below 100 were to rate those
courses and teachers. In 1942-43
courses numbered from 100 to 199
were to be evaluated, and in 1943-
44 those numbered above 199 would
be appraised.
After a three-year period, the
faculty was to decide upon the con-
tinuance or modification of the
"This procedure in other schools
has been found to be very good for
the best teachers and very accurate
for the poorest. At both extremes
there is a high degree of unanimity
of opinion," Dean Woodburne ex-
plained. Without this large measure
of agreement the validity of student
judgment is doubtful as a basis of
making decisions concerning a teach-
er's effectiveness, he added.

Vaccine Found
For Influenza
By Drr. Francis
A successful vaccine against influ-
enza resulted from research directed
by Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr., chair-
man of the Department of Epidemi-
ology in the University School of
Public Health.
The research centered at the pub-
lic health school here under a War
Department contract with the Uni-
versity. Dr. Francis is director of the
Commission on Influenza set up in
1941 by the Surgeon General's Of-
fice of the Army. He was assisted by
Dr. Jonas E. Salk, a research associ-
ate at the School of Public Health.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 14-The Ad-
ministration's hope of getting the
new labor bill through Congress in
time for the steel strike set for Jan.
14 went up the chimney today.
The Senate Labor Committee re-
cessed its hearings until after Con-
gress returns from its Christmas holi-
days. Chairman Murray told report-
ers, the hearings then will run for
another month-100 or more wit-
nesses have asked to testify.
Thus the fact-finding board which
President Truman proposes to name
for the steel wage dispute will have to
depend upon voluntary cooperation
from the companies and the union,
like the board that was appointed for
the General Motors strike. There will
be no law to stop the CIO steel work-
ers from striking as they have voted
to do.
The Senate committee decided,
Chairman Murray said, "that it
would be absolutely impossible to

Courses To Be Known
As 'Basic College Plan'
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth in a
series of articles on the subject of gen-

With far less fanfare than has ac-
companied the celebrated Harvard
Plan, Michigan State College last fall
initiated a program of general edu-
cation courses known as "the basic
The purpose of general education,
as conceived by Michigan State, is
"to provide a broad foundation on
which students may build an intelli-
gent interest in personal, family, vo-
cational, social and civic problems, a
better understanding of these prob-
lems and a greater ability to cope
with them."
On the issue of general versus
specialized education, Michigan
State believes that "a broad educa-
tional foundation is essential for
all students.
"It is recognized that a specialist
will be more effective in his own field
if a well-rounded basic education has
given him a greater understanding
and appreciation of the relationships
of his special field to the needs of
society as a whole," the plan points
"In devising basic comprehensive
courses, important material will be
selected and woven into unified pat-
terns so that students may study
thoroughly the relationships among
the fields encompassed in an area
and their significance to everyday
human experience."
The Michigan State Plan sets up
seven "core" courses as follows:
(1) Written and spoken English,
(2) Biological science, (3) Physical
science, (4) Social science, (5) Effec-
tive living, (6) History of Civiliza-
tion, and (7) Literature and fine arts.
Though written and spoken Eng-
lish is the only required course, stu-
dents must elect four of the remain-
ing six courses.

"I cannot for the life of me under-
stand why there are these repetitious
questions," Lucas said at a time when

position with the understanding that
his services would not be needed

counsel should cause "no serious
