Adult Education
Group To Hold
.First Workshop
More than 50 persons are expected
to attend the 1Jniversity'1~Fir st Adult
Education Workshop, which will open
tomorrow and continue through Sat-
urda Y,
The Workshop will conduct an in-
tensive study of problems connected
with Michigan's experimental liro-
gram in adult education.
The Michigan Association of Direc-
tors of Adult Education will hold its
annual spring meeting tomorrow as
part of the Workshop.
Speakers at the Workshop will in-
clude: Leland P. Bradford, director
of adult education for the National
Education Association; and Dr. Cyril
0. Houle, dean of University College
at the University of Chicago.
The study will include considera-
tion of programs of organizations
and agencies carrying on independent
programs of adult education, tech-
niques of administration and super-
vision of adult education, and prey
paration of needed materials for in-
struction on selected subjects or prob-
Manuals for new, inexperienced
teachers of adults, summarizing suc-
cessful techniques and courses de-
veloped in experiments, are expected
to be compiled during the Workshop.
Much of the work will be done in
seminars or by committees which
are scheduled to meet four hours
daily during the session. The reports
made by the seminars and commit-
tees will be compiled and published.
Lectures and demonstrations will be
given at general sessions.

:chol ; in the nation chosen to par-
ticipate in the training program, and
the (.nly one in this state. Prof. Don-
old G. Marquis, chairman of the psy-
t( hology departinut, will be in charge
of the program.
The VA, th presideint said, ha',
exprcs:ei a preference to train vet-
eanm for the work, which will con-
ssmt I) incipally in treating World
War If veterans suffering fron men-
tal disorders.
Men ard women graduate students
in the program will receive four
years' training in the class room, at
a VA mental hygiene clinic soon to
be built in Detroit, and at VA hos-
pitals in Dearborn and Fort Custer,
Prof. Marquis indicated.
Tho e completing the course will
receive a Ph.D. degree and "will be
asked," he said, "but not required,"
to work for the VA. Enrollees in the
course will work approximately 1,000
hours per year at regular civil ser-
vice rates, $1,200 to $2,000 per year.
A portion of the student's yearly
salary will be allocated to the Uni-
versity to provide for the cost of the
instructional program, Prof. Mar-
quis stated.
Veterans will benefit especially
from the program, he pointed out, be-
cause they will have their regular
G.T. benefits added to the salary.
App oximately 200 clinical psy-
chiologists will be trained throughout
the nation under the new program.
"The need for them is very great,"
Prof. Marquis declared. "No more
than that number are now trained for
the work in the entire country."
Three Hair Clippers
Stolen from Union
Three electric hair clippers were
stolen Friday from the Union bar-
ber shop by thieves who gained en-
trance by climbing the seven feet
high steel gate which seperates the
shop from the rest of the building.
Police said the robbery may have
occured any time between the shop's
closing at 6 p.m. and its opening
at 8:30 yesterday morning. The clip-
pers were valued at a total of $67.50.

Students in the College of Engi-
neering, under the leadership of the
Engineering Council, will strive to re-
establish the Honor System for all
classes next fall.
Inaugurated in 1916 as the result
of a student petition to the faculty,
the Honor System was discontinued
for underclassmen in 1944 by stu-
dent request because of the large
number of students coming into the
engineering college from other schools
who were not familiar with the sys-

facilities available to them in the
Rackham School of Graduate Studies
and with the Graduate Student Coun-
Others plans of the Council include
a survey to be made of changing cur-
ricula in the graduate schools of all
the major universities in the United
States, with particiular attention to
the cognate fields, such as languages.
The Council also plans to make a
study of foreign colleges whose en-
roliment is open to graduate students.

former members of the Board of Re-
gen ts, officers of the University, deans

Indiana To Conduct ReseaiIrch.
With Beta Ra Spectroscope

During the past year, the Engi-
neering Council, student governing
body, and the Michigan Technic,
engineering student publication have
been active in promoting the revival
of the Honor System for freshmen
and sophomores. The Engineering
Council recently published a small
pamphlet explaining the history,
operation and function of the Honor
System. The information in this
pamphlet is used as a basis for
discussion by the underclassmen now
considering the plan.
Students, faculty and administra-
tion agree that the Honor System
cannot be successfully imposed upon
the student body and therefore the
demand for the system must originate
with the student body. Members of
the faculty have indicated that the
revival of the Honor System is to
be decided by the students and that
the faculty is taking no part.
Under the Honor System written
quizzes and examinations are un-

Plans for construction of a beta
ray sp'ctr oscope'-tlie largest ever
built, have been announced by the
University of Indiana. The machine,
which can measure with unprece-
dented accuracy energies from nu-
clear radiation, will aid indirectly in
the development of atomic energy.
The university's research with the
machine will be conducted by Prof.
Lawrence M. Langer, of the physics
department, who served as a civilian
consultant in charge of assembling
the atomic 1,ouib dropped on Hiro-
Behind the Counters
Something new has been added to
classroom work at the University
of Minnesota. Students in the general
college retail and selling class not
only attend classroom lectures but
also spend some of their time work-
ing in the various department stores
in Minneapolis. According to the
Minnesota Daily, in the morning
"when most; students are just open-
ing their eyes to a new day, the class
is off visiting a grocery store, a hard-
ware store or attending a fashion
show before these establishments are
open to the public."
Was lie Cutting, Too?
A sophomore at the University of
Wisconsin found a stroll on the cam-
pus at Madison more inviting than
a botany lecture. In the course of the
day, she approached the university's
tower and decided to climb it to see
the carillon chimes and perhaps the
player of said chimes. "It is a long,
hard climb to the top," noted the
Daily Cardinal reporter . . . when the
young miss finally made it, she was
confronted with her botany profes-
sor-.-the chimes player.
Latin American Life
Northwestern has initiated a new
program intended to better under-
standing of Latin American life with
a four year course called the "Area of
Latin American Studies." Com-
prising more than 30 courses, the pro-
gram has been considered one of the
most extensive yet offered. Students
enrolled in the program take several
laboratory courses during their first
two years in such departments as
geography, history, political science
and languages. When choosing a field
of concentration in the junior year


from these fields, the student never-1
theless continues to take courses in
Latin American studies.
Student Psychologists
Students in psychology at the
University of Kansas issued last week
the initial number of their all-stu-
dent "Journal of Psychology." With
publication set for every three
months, the journal is reported to be
the first to be written by students in
the field. It will be a record of the
reading and research work done by
students in psychology at the uni-
versity and- will be written entirely by
the students, with the faculty assist-
ing in an advisory capacity.
Pennsylvania's War Effort
Despite the necessity of top secre-
cy the University of Pennsylvania's
war historian has been recording in-
formation about participation in the
war effort by several of the uni-
versity 's faculty members. Members
of the history, economics, psychology,
physics and political science depart-
ments as well as of the medical school
were active in directing, in personal
research and in holding key positions
in Washington. Top secret of Penn's
part in the war effortstill is in the
field of atom bomb research.

Students who observe members of

The offending student is then
brought to trial before the Student

The sentence, in the form of a re-

before final action is taken resulting
in suspension or expulsion.
