At a moderate estimate, more than
50,000 Michigan laborers have been
reached by the experimental.program
in adult education for worker groups,
which is sponsored by the University
Extension Service, Mr. A. K. Stevens,
assistant co-ordinator of the pro-
gram, said in a recent interview.
Begun in 1944 under the stimulus
of President Alexander G. Ruthven,
who had observed the success of the
Workers' Educational Association in
England, the program, first in Amer-
ica designed to reach the rank and
file, had an approximate enrollment
of 30,000 by the end of April, 1945. Its
aim is, according to Mr. Stevens, to
"equip the worker to take a responsi-
ble part, along with his fellow work-
ers, in the functioning of society, and
give him an understanding of the
problems facing society as a whole."
Mr. Stevens explained the
method by which the services of
the program are presented to the
union workers. First "spot lec-
tures" are given at the central or-
ganization of the AFL or CIO u-
ions in each community. Talks
and discussions, or educational
movies, are given at each meeting.
Then the delegates attending the
central council meetings request the
same kind of service for their indi-
vidual unions, and talks and discus-
sions on the same topics are given at
the union meetings. Both at the cens-
tral councils and at the union meet-
ings, Mr. Stevens stressed, the topics
presented are those which the men
themselves ask to be informed about.
"The topics requested usually have
this sequence," Mr. Stevens said,
"First they ask about the functioning
of the labor laws now on the books,
as for example, workman's compen-
sation and social security. Then they
request explanations of bills at the
time before Congress or the state leg-
Medal Asked

Sgt. Kainis Rescues
Drowning Jap Boy
Sgt. Leonard A. Kamins, a gradu-
ate of the University, was recom-
mended for the Soldiers' Medal for
rescuing a three-year old Japanese
boy from drowning, it was announced
by Fifth Air Force Headquarters at
Irumagawa, Japan.
The recommendation states that
while Sgt. Kamins was driving
through Kawagoe, near Tokyo, he
noticed two -.Tapane children, obvi-
ously very excited, playing on the
edge of a canal. Investigation re-
vealed a third child floating face
downward in the muddy water. Div-
ing into the canal, Sgt. Kamins
brought the boy to the bank and
after reviving him by artificial res-
piration returned the child to his

islature, such as, at present, the
Full Employment bill or the Wagner-
Murray-Dingell bill for the extension
of social security.
"Finally they. inquire about so-
cial, political and economic prob-
lems in general." One group want-
ed to know about labor's obliga-
tions to society, which Mr. Stev-
ens considered a significant indica-
"The University assumes that la-
bor organizations will continue to be
a fundamental part of society. As
such, they constitute a continuous
challenge to the adult education fa-
cilities of the state.
"The University does not in any
way extend unionism, Mr. Stevens
said, since it is already present when
the work is begun. The field of sub-
ject matter covered by the work does
not include the primary negotiation
of contracts with management and
the program is therefore unaffected
by labor-management controversies."
The program also includes classes
on any specific topic or problem re-
quested. Classes are given in public
speaking, parliamentary law, col-
lective bargaining, time study,
stewardship training, history of the
labor movement, labor legislation,
labor journalism, union. adminis-

tration, and even photography. The
classes are given for a period of
six weeks, one evening each week.
"We are especially proud," Mr.
Stevens pointed out, "of the work be-
ing done in giving the union stewards
better acquaintance with the terms
of the union contract and training in
the methods of presenting griev-
ances to the foremen. This can pre-
vent much of the preliminary ten-
dency toward work stoppages."
