Army Education Service Keeps GIs Informed

"Keeping the servicemen on the Pa-
cific islands informed of the war's
progress on all fronts was one of the
most important duties of the Educa-
tional Services of the Armed Forces,"
Prof. Claude A. Eggertsen, of the
School of Education said in an inter-
view yesterday.
Prof. Eggertsen, who recently re-
turned to campus, served as a Dis-
trict Officer of Educational Serv-
ices for the 14th Naval District,
the Central Pacific area, with
headquarters at Pearl Harbor.
A major task of the Educational
Services, Prof. Eggertsen said, was to
bring information tb the men situated
on small islands. Talks were given by
experts in theatres and movies. Al-
most any subject on which the men
requested information was brought
up for a discussion. When they de-
sired knowledge about the Japanese
customs, a man who had lived in
Japan for many years came to lecture.
Knowledge about the volcanic origin
of the Hawaiian Islands was secured
from a local professor who has made
Initial Meeting
Of World Fund
Leaders Closes
SAVANNAH, Ga., March 18-RP)-
In an atmosphere of apparent har-
mony and international verbal back-
slapping, Secretary of the Treasury
Fred M. Vinson today closed the in-
augural meeting of governors of the
world fund and bank with a declara-
tion that they are "now established
and beginning to breathe as living or-
Representatives of eight nations
rose one after another in a final len-
ai session to praise the work done
here during the last 10 days.
Thlcus the $9,100,000,000 bank and
$8,860,000,000 fund were formally de-
clared to be in existence. Actual lend-
ing and stabilizing activities, how-
ever, are still months away.
Earlier the governors elected, un-
der a complex voting procedure, seven
executive directors for the bank and
a like number for the fund to go with
the directorship seats automatically
accorded to the United States, Brit-
ain, China, France and India.
The $17,000-a-year jobs, free of all
taxes, were voted as forecast to Can-
ada,, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland,
Greece, Chile and Cuba on the Bank
of Canada, Belgium, Netherlands,
Mexico, Brazil, Egypt and Czecho-
slovakia on the fund.

signed to serve urgent productive
needs. It would have been much wiser
had we not attempted to collect war
debts arising out of assistance given
to England in World War .I. The
debts represented no increase in pro-
ductivity or capacity to export, and
England properly argued that the
debts should have been cancelled out-
"The proposed agreement with
Great Britain provides for a payment
to us of 650,000,000 in final settlement
for lend-lease. By thus cancelling
most of the bill for lend-lease sup-
plies, we avoid the mistake made after
World War I when a large debt was
charged to Britain.
"It is expected that our liberal
treatment of lend-lease and the ex-
tension of the proposed loan will lead
other countries to reduce their war-
time claims against England and pos-
sibly make them willing to provide
additional financial assistance during
the difficult transitional period."
Acheson Calls Loan

Our 'Last Chance'
DETROIT, March 18-(MP)-Under
Secretary of State Dean Acheson told
the Economic Club of Detroit today
that approval of the three and three-
quarter billion dollar British loan is
America's "last chance to restore
world trade."
If the loan is made it would result
in multilateral trade, he said.
"We could then again have a con-
dition in which every sale gave you a
chance to buy in any market you
wanted to in the world," Acheson de-
clared. "This situation would increase
production everywhere because every-
body would have a chance to compete
freely in every market."
Allied Policy
Unity Asked
Henry Morgenthau, Jr. tonight said
Allied agreement on policy in Ger-
many was basic to the settlement of
other European problems and that
failure to achieve this would lay the
foundation for "renewed German ag-
gression and future war.'

a life-time study of volcanoes, Prof.
Eggertsen said.
While the war was in progress one
of the most effective methods of
keeping up morale was the "Off
Duty" program the Navy organized.
Over 1,200 men attended classes dur-
ing leisure time, studying almost any
subject from math to interior deco-
On one of the islands a "Town
Hall" building was constructed
which served as the social center
for the island. A 10 by 50 feet bul-
letin board composed the front of
the building. Bulletins and articles
from all fronts was placed on the
board, which was the most popular
spot on the island, Prof. Eggertsen
"Teaching procedures were used in
highly effective combinations. For
example, a large unit scheduled to go
to a South Pacific island learned
about conditions there through the
use of a wide variety of teaching aids.
Pamphlets and mimeographed mate-
rials about the land, people, and
health hazards, were distributed. Ci-
vilians who were familiar with the
area participated in a panel discus-
sion at which colored films were
shown. A jungle-survival teaching
unit gave a demonstration of the
te-iues to be used in living off the

Is Conducted
Economic Problems
Subject of Research
The Bureau of Business Research of
the School of Business Administra-
tion, in cooperation with the Bureau
of Government, is conducting investi-
gation and research on economic and
governmental problems for the Grand
Rapids Metropolitan Planning Asso-
The objective of the work, accord-
ing to Robert N. Cross, Research As-
socigte, is to determine the proba-
ble character and direction of the
economic growth of the area and its
impact on the community and com-
munity problems. The Bureau of
Business Research is at present en-
gaged in the study of the seasonal
characteristics of employment 'in va-
rious industries and trades in the
areas to determine to what degree
there is seasonal unemployment, and
to later investigate whether or not
effective measures could be taken to
smooth out the curve of seasonal em-

language records and phonographs,
language guides and dictionaries
for Spanish, Pidgin-English, Japa-
nese and Chinese."
Two unique machines were used,
Prof. Eggertsen explained, which pre-
sented information in an attractive
fashion. One, called a "Panoram,"
was similar to a juke box. The "Pano-
ram" gave a showing of a short film
such as the Battle of Pearl Harbor.
The other, similar to a pin-ball ma-
chine, was an automatic rater, which
presented and scored a short related
Naturally, Prof. Eggertsen said, all
of the men were interested in their
future after they were discharged,
and one of the most important func-
tions of the Educational Services was
to act as guidance agency. The men
were told how they could best apply
to civilian life the skills they had
learned in the navy.
At the local service center were
aptitude and academic tests and a
dictionary of occupations to guide
the men toward a future vocation.
Catalogues of various colleges in
the United States were available to
all who desired information, and
counselors to explain the G.I. Bill
of Rights were on the staff, he said.
"When the war ended the navy was
faced with the problem of keeping up
the morale of the men whoremained
overseas. "On Duty" classes were or-
ganized and many men were able to
earn college credits in this fashion."
The biggest and most successful
task was the organization of the
'Navy Pacific University' at Pearl
Harbor. The Educational Services
took over a new hospital, built in ex-
pectation of the Japanese invasion,
and conducted a regular university
there. A library, laboratories, ma-
chine shops and classrooms were set
up in Quonset huts. Even a pre-en-
trance orientation period was intsi-
tuted. The 'University' became popu-
lar beyond all expectation and men
were soon commuting to school in
every conceivable vehicle from all the
Hawaiian Islands, Prof. Egger tsen
Band Performs
Outside of Cy
For the first time since the out-
break of war, the University of Mich-
igan Concert Band under the direc-
tion of Prof. William D. Revelli is
giving out-of-town performances.
The first of these concerts was giv-
en by thirty-five men of the Concert
Band last night at a meeting of Wil-
low Run veterans.
This week, the Concert Band will
give two more out-of-town concerts.
Tomorrow night they will present a
concert to be sponsored by the music
clubs of Battle Creek at the Kellogg
Auditorium in that city. They will
give both a matinee and an evening
performance Saturday in Pontiac for
the Optimist Club.

Hawaii Ready
For Statehood ,
Ediwcator Says
American Influence
Has Laid Foundation
"American public education hasi
laid the foundation for present day
Hawaii which is ready for statehood,"
Dean Benjamin o. Wist, of Honolulu
University said in a lecture yesterday
on "Hawaii-Educational Experiment
in American Democracy."
Hawii, Dean Wist stated, is no long-
er the step-child of the American
people. The recent attention focused
on the islands during the war has
shown that they are essentially Amer-
ican in character and thought.
"Early Hawaiian culture had a
highly civilized system of education.
Learning was spread through appren-
tice systems, tutors, and even for-
malized classrooms so that each child
knew a vocation and the mores of
his culture."
The foundations for the American
free public school system in Hawaii
were made by the missionaries in the
early nineteenth century, Dean Wist
declared. The first official act of the
missionaries was to establish schools
and to create a written Hawaiian al-
phabet. Their zeal soon made Hawaii
one of the most literate places in the
Hawaii had a highly diverse racial
population, Dean Wist explained. The
teaching of racial tolerance in the
schools has been so effective that
there is little tension among the wide
ranges of races and religions of the
people who inhabit the island, he con-
