Aptitude Tests
Place Veterans
A bove Others
Veterans are better students and
better workers than non-veterans,
according to research studies con-
ducted among students of Columbia
College, Chicago, and among 175
industries employing 250,000 work-
The report on the studies, an-
nounced yesterday by Norman Alex-
androff, president of the college,
shows that veterans scored much
higher than non-veterans on tests of
adjustment trains. This was espe-
cially true among industrial workers.
President Alexandroff believes many
non-veterans suffer from maladjust-
menth owing to a "guilt complex."
"Contrary to popular opinion, the
civilian rather than the veteran
seems to be the real social and emo-
tional problem of society," President
Alexandroff said.
Among the students tested, the vet-
erans topped non-veterans in psycho-
logical inventory tests of their men-
tal, social, personality and academic

The airplane is here to stay, so the
members of the University of Michi-

Receiving word that the new 165
horsepower Champion A er on c a,

;anization flew to the town with Bud
Baer, a commercial flying instructor
at the local airport.
Mis's Milton was joined in Middle-

weary eightptour ride on the train."
With Miss Hamilton at the con-
trols the pair took off, and one hour
and fifty-three minutes later alight-
ed once again in Ann Arbor.'.
The flying weather was "perfect,"
it was a "wonderful trip" and the

"beautiful" by its first pilot. She
stated that the club is glad to have
their first shio and have the club
under way.
Plans have already been made for
the additional purchase of a tan-
dem-type Aeronca. Delivery on this
plane is expected sometime next

"My group," he continued, "con-
sisting of more than 3,500 men, was
confined in an area not even as large
as that occupied by the University
Law Quadrangle."
"Our rations were very meager,
he pointed out. Often one under-
fed cow would be slaughtered to
feed 1,000 hungry men. Whippings
and similar cruel treatment were
common," Fernandez said.

stuffs. Although the price of goods
was tremendous-a can jf fis shell-
ing for $17.50--some of us, who
were able to hide money from the
Japs, did manage to supplement
our otherwise starvation diet, Of
course, whenever the Japs found us
smuggling this in, we were severely
beaten," Fernandez said.
"Often times, the Japanese would
not allow the Red Cross workers to
reach us," he added.
After two and a half months of
this, the Japs offered Major Fernan-
dez the position of Governor of Pal-
awan Province if he would take an
oath not ever to engage in any activi-
ties against the Japanese occupation
He served as governor of Palawan
for 18 months, during which time
he was able to make contact with un-
derground forces and materially aid
groups of 500 Americans whom the
Japs had put to forced labor building
"I forced my own resignation late
in 1943," Major Fernandez related,
"and was then able to take up resi-
dence in Manila so that I might be
able to take a more active part in the
resistance movement."
"My job with the underground,"
he declared, "was to disseminate to
the Philippine peoples news of the
outside world which I was able to
receive over a secret short-wave
radio set I had smuggled into a se-
cret hiding place.
"We spread information with mi-
raculous speed by word of mouth. A
report coming to me at Manila in the
evening would reach the distant hills
by morning," the Major stated.
About a month and a half before
the first American landings in the
Philippines were made, Major Fer-
nandez was discovered with his radio
set. The Japanese arrested him and
imprisoned him for 40 days, releasing
him just one week before the Ameri-
can invasion.,
