SU' Bureau Su
Situation in M
In cooperation with the placement
bureaus of the 16 other teacher-
training institutions in the state, the
University Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information yes-
terday took the first step in the fifth
annual survey of the supply, demand
and placement of Michigan teachers
by requesting information from the
656 Michigan school superintendents.
Dr. T. Luther Purdom, Director
of the Bureau, said that in addi-
tion to the questions which the
Bureau usually asks to ascertain
the probable demand for teachers,
the study will attempt this year
to find what percentage of teach-
ers are returning to their jobs from
war activities, and why teachers
are leaving the profession in in-
creasing numbers.
Each superintendent in the state,
Dr. Purdom said, is asked in the
questionnaire how many teachers he
hired last year from schools in and
out of the state and how many he
thinks he will need next year. The
county superintendents are also
questioned about the number of rural
schools which have been closed.
By adding to this information
the number of requests for teach-
ers the placement bureaus received
last year and the number of teach-
ers they placed in positions, it is
possible to obtain a fairly com-
plete picture of the supply and de-
mand for teachers in Michigan.
Reports of the results are sent to
all superintendents in Michigan and
to the placement bureaus, Dr. Pur-

Strikers' Rally
By The Associated Press
FLINT, Mich., Feb. 5-A women's
meeting aimed at spearheading a
back-to-work movement in strike-
bound General Motors plants turned
into a strikers' rally here today, and
before it was over even the sponsors
joined in support of continuing the
About 300 women-some GM work-
ers themselves and others strikers'
wives-packed a Genesee County
courtroom on invitation of two mili-
tant housewives, Mrs. Ralph Ide and
Mrs. Marshall B. Hadley. A sprin-
kling of men was sighted in the room
but only one attempted to speak and
he was shouted down.
One of the first persons to gain the
floor was .Mrs. Catherine Gelles, of
Detroit, international secretary-
treasurer of the CIO United Auto
Workers, women's auxiliary.
Mrs. Gelles traced the union's fight
with General Motors from the days of
the sitdown strike in 1937 to the pres-
ent. That started to turn the die and
the rest was easy.
Other union auxiliary leaders from
Pontiac, Detroit and Flint took over.
A resolution calling on President Tru-
man to "take immediate steps to
force GM to come to satisfactory
agreement with the union" was intro-
duced and passed on voice vote in the
name of "housewives" from the three
Sensing the sentiments of the other
women, the two sponsors then re-
versed their position and agreed to
attend a union auxiliary rally Tues-
Mrs. Ide, wife of a Flint ailines
mechanic, volunteered to workin a
strike kitchen.
Mrs. Hadley, wife of a Buick shop
worker, signed up for picket line duty.
"I think it's wonderful to see so

much enthusiasm behind an organi-
zation," she commented as the meet-
ing broke up.

dom said. He pointed out that this
survey will enable the superinten-
dents to know what new teachers
cill be available, what the state de-
mand will be, and therefore the sal-
aries they will probably have to pay.
The survey is also utilized by the
bureaus in advising students to be-
come teachers in fields for which
there will be a real demand.
Student Bakes
Cake with 15th
Century Recipe
. . . She had some little dogs,
too, that she fed on roasted flesh,
or milk and fine white bread."
This quotation about the prioress
from the prologue to Chaucer's "Can-
terbury Tales" precipitated a discus-
sion of the difference between bread
and cake in the English 225 class of
Prof. John R. Reinhard. And that
discussion led to Mrs. Erna Xan,
grad, a student in the class, baking a
cake with a 15th century recipe, the
first known cake recipe in the Eng-
lish language.
"Nun's Cake"
Mrs. Xan baked a "Nun's Cake,"
from a recipe which was sent to her
by Ann Batchelder of the "Ladies'
Home Journal." Previously Mrs. Xan
had written a baking company which
combed all the libraries in New York
for the first cake recipe and was un-
able to find it.
The recipe, according to Mrs. Xan,
was the first recipe for cakes ever per-
fected, and uses air as a leavening
agent. The baked goods before this
recipe, Mrs. Xan said, used yeast for
leavening and that produced bread,
not cake.

Different Ingredients
The "Nun's Cake" which Mrs. Xan
baked derived its name from a Nun
who perfected it. The cake differs
from the cake of today, Mrs. Xan
said, because the ingredients include
rose water and caraway seeds.
Mrs. Xan took the cake to class,
and other students of English 225
have testified that it was delicious.

CLEVELAND, Feb. 5-(P)-Settle-
