MECHANICAL GENIUS:
Influenza Immunization Data
To Be Tabulated by Machine

The gargantuan task of sorting
cards and tabulating data on almost
18,000 University students, who will
be immunized against influenza dur-
ing the coming week has been figur-
atively eliminated.
Instead of requiring the services
of a host of clerks working far into
the night, the work will be done by
the mechanical "geniuses" at the
HEopwoods To
Offer $7,000
In Prize Money
An estimated total of $7,000 in
prize money will be presented to this
year's winners of the annual Hop-1
wood Contest for the best creative
writing in the fields of drama, fic-
tion, poetry and essay, according to
Prof. Roy W. Cowden, director of the
contest.
The contest, which has been in ex-
istence since 1931, is open to both
undergraduate and graduate students
who are enrolled in at least one
course in the English or Journalism
departments during the year in
which they are competing, and who
maintain a satisfactory academic'
standing in the University.
Avery Hopwood Bequest
The contest was made possible by
the bequest left by Avery Hopwood,
prominent American dramatist and a
graduate of the University.
The income from the bequest has
been divided into four parts: major
awards, which are presented to senior
and graduate students only, minor
awards for which all undergraduates
who meet the specific requirements
of the contest are eligible, freshman
awards, designed especially to en-
courage beginners, and a special
group of awards for students attend-
ing the summer sessions.
Subjects Not Limited
According to his will, Hopwood de-
sired that students competing "shall
not be confined to academic sub-
jects, but shall be allowed the widest
possible latitude," and that "the
new, the unusual and the radical
shall be especially encouraged."
Manuscripts for this year's con-
test must be submitted to the English
office by April 16, 1947. Full details
concerning rules of the contest, prep-
aration of manuscripts, and the
amounts of individual awards in the
various fields of writing are given in
the current official bulletin of the
Hopwood contest, which is now avail-
able in the Hopwood Room, 3227 An-,
gell Hall.

University Sorting and Tabulation
Station, under the direction of Alan
D. Meacham, supervisor of the sta-
tion.
A and B Vaccine
Cards will be collected every day
at the inoculation stations in Water-
man Gymnasium, processed at the
sorting station and mechanically put
into categories set up by Dr. Thomas
Francis and Dr. Jones E. Salk for
further study. Dr. Francis and Dr.
Salk perfected the influenza A and
B vaccine, to be used here, in 1941 in
work for the Army.
In addition the Health Service will
follow up all upperrespiratory dis-
eases, such as the common cold, in-
fluenza, infectious mononeucliosis,
and glandular fever and any signifi-
-ant reactions to the inoculations.
Special Cards
The special cards needed have been
made up for every student in the Uni-
versity and will be picked up by
them when they report to Waterman
Gymnasium in the centralized pro-
gram which will start Monday. Spe-
.ial pencils will be provided for
marking the cards.
The Health Service's drive for 100
per cent immunization against influ-
enza was spearheaded Tuesday and.
Wednesday nights in the Mosher-
Jordan and Stockwell halls. Work
done there was a test run for the pro-
vedure to be used next week in Wat-
rman Gymnasium. Dr. Margaret
Bell, acting director of -the Health
Service, reported approximately 80
per cent participation in the dormi-
tories and practically no serious re-
actions.
TU' Had Special
Colleges before~
Emergency colleges like the one at
Camp Brady, Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.,
and those in New York State are not
a new idea according to Dr. Charles
A. Fisher, director of the Universi-
ty Extension Service.
During the depression years 1934
to 1937 there were 20 "freshman
colleges" throughout Michigan which
were administered by the University
Extension Service, Dr. Fisher said.
Established to provide educational'
facilities for students who could not
afford to attend an ordinary college
or university, the freshman or com-
munity colleges, as they were later
called, charged no tuition.

Justice ept.
Orders Study of
Coal Contract
Lewis Sets Nov. 1 As
Deadline For Talks
WASHINGTON, Oct. 25-P)--The
Justice Department moved into the
dispute between John L. Lewis and
Secretary of the Interior Krug to-
day, ordering a study to see which
is right about the coal mining con-
tract that Lewis says may be vcid
next Friday.
With an industry-crippling walk-
out implied, though not announced.
the United Mine Workers' president
contends (a) the contract is sub-
ject to reopening for negotiationi of
union demands and (b) if Krug
doesn't show up for talks a week
from today, it expires.
Agreement in Effect, Says Krug
Krug says the agreement he and
Lewis made last May is still in ef-
fect and its terms continue so long
as the government holds possession
of the mines.
Also, the implications of an elec-
tion-eve walkout of 400,000 coal min-
ers came up at the President's cab-
inet meeting and Lewis' Mine Work-
ers Journal proclaimed: Pay con-
trols are doomed.
The Justice Department lawyers
want to find out whether Lewis is
right in his contention that the con-
tract is subject to reopening now.
Krug says it isn't.
Clark Checks Contract
Attorney General Tom C. Clark
disclosed that the Justice Depart-
ment is scanning the government's
contract with Lewis fox' the period
of fedexal operation of the mines.
They have been in government po-
ssession since the strike last spring.
Lewis wants to reopen the con-
tract Nov. 1 and says that if Krug
fails to honor a meeting which Lewis
requested on that date, the co x-
tract will be of no legal force. He
didn't have to add that the miners
won't work without a contract.
Absentee Ballot
Used in 1864
The idea of absentee voting is at
least as old in our government as
the Civil War, as shown by material
in the Michigan Historical Collec-
tions.
The Collections, which are located
in the Rackham Building, contain
two absentee ballots distributed to
Union soldiers for the election of
1864. In those days. the ballots were
separate for each party. One asked
for either a Democratic or Republi-
can form and the tabulators took it
from there; split tickets were im-
possible. It has been suggested that
some of our "straight Republicans"
and "straight Democrats" were the
habit way back then.
The Republicans, plugging Lincoln,
went all out for decoration on their
ballots, using pictures of cannons and
flags, and a large engxaved inscrip-
tion "For the Union-No Compromise
with Treason." The Democratic bal-
lot, for General M'Clellan, contented
itself with just one American flag
(windblown).
The ballots were given to the Col-
lections by Shirley W. Smith, forner
secretary of the University.
