Michaux Tells
Effect of New
Navy Rulings
Alternatives Listed
For Future Course
New provisions affecting Naval per-
sonnel in the University, necessitated
by the extension of the present Naval
program to July 1, 1946, were revealed
yesterday by Capt. Woodson Michaux,
commandant of the Naval Unit here.
Students have been given the fol-
lowing alternatives: remaining in the
officer training program until July 1;
returning to general duty, or being
discharged if they have sufficient
511 Men Next Semester
An approximate total of 511 men
will, be here next semester for the
final term, Capt. Michaux reported.
Four hundred-one of that number are
sailors who have chosen to continue
their studies. The remaining 110
comprise Marine personnel not af-
fected by the orders.
Of the 560 Naval students who are
eligible under these new orders, only
159 have applied for separation from
the Unit.
The orders, which were released by
the Navy in a recent bulletin, are be-
ing announced at this time, Capt.
Michaux explained, to allow students
desiring separation to finish the pres-
ent term rather than lose credits and
also to avoid using government funds
for tuitions for those who might de-
cide to request separation.
Final approval is still pending con-
cerning the maintenance of the re-
maining men in Michigan, Williams
and Adams houses of the West Quad-
rangle. This measure would leave
Winchell, Lloyd and Chicago houses
for civilian use.
Peacetime NROTC
Latest indications involving a
peacetime NROTC, Capt. Michaux
said, are that legislation will be
passed in time for such a program
to begin July 1, 1946 at the conclu-
sion of the current emergency pro-
This legislation would allow all
those not graduating in June to con-
tinue as NROTC members until they
do graduate and receive Naval Re-
serve commissions.
Fifty-two universities in the coun-
try, including Michigan, have been
selected as sites for the peacetime
programs. The University has indi-
cated its willingness to participate,
Capt. Michaux stated, in establish-
ing a Unit which will normally com-
prise approximately 300 students.

sity cancelled further class reun-
ions until the termination of the
war, in conjunction with govern-
mental requests.
It will be the second reunion in
the history of the University being
held for all classes. One hundred and
six classes attended the first one, held

JAG Presents
Plaque for Wur
Services to VU
Gen. Green Addresses
Last Graduating Class
Expressing regret that the JAG
school begun at the University of
Michigan for the training of military
lawyers in 1942 could not be estab-
lished on a more permanent basis,
Maj. Gen. Thomas H. Green, Judge
Advocate General of the Army, yes-
terday presented to the University on
behalf of his department a bronze
plaque in recognition of its vital war
service to the Judge Advocate Gen-
eral's Department.
Maj. Gen. Green came here from
Washington to participate in com-
mencement exercises at which 77 of-
ficers and 21 officer candidates were
graduated following completion of
their four month course.
Compliments University
In his address to the graduating
class, he complimented the University
on the valuable role it played in help-
ing to build one of the greatest law
firms in the nation, staffed by over
2800 men, of whom 2,684 received
training here.
The plaque presented to the Uni-
versity, measuring 18 by 24 inches,
will be mounted near the East entry
of the Lawyers Club. It bears the
following inscription:
"In grateful recognition by the
Judge Advocates of the Army for the
patriotic contribution made by the
University of Michigan Law School
during World War II in placing at
the disposal of the Judge Advocate
General of the Army the facilities of
the W. W. Cook Law Quadrangle as
the site of the Judge Advocate Gen-
eral School, 1942-1945."
Dr. E. Blythe Stason, Dean of the
Law School, also took part in the
exercises. As in all previous gradu-
ations, he delivered a congratulatory
address to the graduates.
Privilege To Serve .
Upon receiving the plaque pre-
sented by the Army, Dean Stason
remarked, "It has been a privilege
to participate in this small way in
the war effort."
Although it was the smallest class
ever graduated by the school, yester-
day's exercises in Hutchins Hall were
unique in that they witnessed, the
successful completion of the program
on the part of every one of the 99
men enrolled four months ago.
Maj. Gen. Green pointed out that
"the school has for four years sup-
plied us with able legal minds. It
has served as the lawyer's West
Point, and I wish that it might be
continued as a permanent school to
train soldier lawyers."
The JAG school was first instituted
in Washington, D. C. in Feb. of 1942,
but was transfered to the University
of Michigan law quadrangle the fol-
lowing October. Since its establish-
ment here, it has trained 1,252 offi-
cers, 942 officers candidates and 484
others in contract termination work.

Either because the organizations
which they represent have not gone
