Problems and needs of ex-service-
men are fast becoming an old story
-with many new variations, however
-for the interviewers and certifica-
tion clerk at the Veterans Service
The staff, composed of two ex-serv-
icemen and two wives of veterans,
has interviewed veterans at the rate
of 100 a day during the last month.
The entering veteran meets several
members of the staff at the begin-
ning of his long trip through Univer-
sity offices as part of his registration.
After filling in a record sheet, he is
interviewed by Mrs. Dorothy Coons,
whose husband returned Saturday
after 30 months in Europe; or by
Mrs. Ruth McKevitt, wife of a vet-
eran now enrolled as a graduate here;
or Charles H. Peake, who served as
chief of an information-Education
section at a New Guinea base. Peake
is acting as assistant interviewer and
soon will assume his duties as coun-
These interviewers advise the vet-
eran on entrance problems and help
him decide whether he would receive
more benefits from Public Law 16 or
the G. I. Bill of Rights. Acting as a
referral agency, the Bureau makes
appointments with the Health Serv-
ice, the Dean of Students, or what-
ever office is wanted.
If the veteran has not decided what
field he wishes to enter, he may take
the General Counselling Tests, which
give an objective picture of his apti-
tudes, interests and weaknesses. A
psychologist interprets the tests with
him and suggests what courses are
After interviewing is completed, the
veteran goes to Calvin Haugh, who
certifies to the government his enroll-
ment in the University in order that
his subsistence check be sent to him.
Haugh was a first lieutenant with
the 977th Field Artillery of the Fifth
Army in Africa and Italy.
"After a veteran's enrollment has
been certified here, it takes 30 days
for the Veterans Administration at
Dearborn to process an application
and authorize entrance," Haugh
pointed out. "Under ideal conditions,
it is an additional six weeks before
the first subsistence check is re-
To expedite registration for the ex-
serviceman, the University this year
paid for veterans' books and fees in
advance. By this means, 800 men
were enabled to enroll before they re-
ceived official Veterans Administra-
"During the rush of registration,
we answered many questions briefly,
and we ask that veterans come in now
to have their questions explained
more thoroughly and to file their per-
manent local addresses," Mrs. Coons,
chief interviewer, said.

The period of leniency in enforcing
University automobile regulations, oc-
casioned by difficulties in finding
rooms, is over and the regulations
will be rigidly enforced in the fu-
ture, assistant Dean of Students
Walter B. Rea announced today.
The regulations provide that full-
time students under 26 years of age

necessitate their operating cars for
family, commuting, business or health
purposes should apply without delay

"Flight testing formed an import-
ant part of the work of my section,"
Prof. Conlon said, "and we all had a
great deal of respect for the Marine
pilots. If a plane stood the test of
their flying, it was a good one.

combat conditions had changed con-
siderably and changes were manda-
tory. -It was our job to determine the
