Scouts Have
No Trouble
Seating Fans
The crowds that jam Michigan
Stadium every football Saturday pre-
sent a lot of problems, but they don't
faze the Boy Scouts of America.
The scouts have been getting fans
into the right seats and running er-
rands. for the past 23 years.
Backed by the late Fielding H.
Yost, the scouts ushered their first
game in 1923 and haven't missed a
game since.
Nearly 1,000 of them are on hand
at each game. The majority are
from Washtenaw and Livingston
counties, but others have come from
such cities as Detroit, Flint, Sagi-
naw, Bay City, Pontiac, Grand Rap-
ids, Holland, Kalamazoo, Jackson.
Battle Creek, Ypsilanti, and Toledo,
Walter G. MacPeek, executi've of
the Washtenaw-Livingston Boy Scout
Council, said the ushering program
has always run smoothly, although
occasionally the boys leave their
posts to buy hot dogs and cold drinks
for well-meaning fans and aren't
available to help others to their seats.
"They aren't required to run er-
rands, but they like to be good
scouts," MacPeek said.
Under the direction of Daniel S.
Ling, chairman of the ushering com-
mittee, the scouts assemble in the
stadium at 12:15 p.m. for inspection:,
ushering assignments and instruc-
tions. One troop has charge of one-
half of an aisle and each individual
scout is responsible for four rows
of seats. A section leader, who is a
scout master or commissioner, is in
charge of 44 rows.
The khaki-clad boys consider ush-
erng duty a "lucky break" and work
hard to get it, since most troops se-
lect their ushers on merit - with
efficiency, appearance, dependahili-
ty and age all considered in selec-
Asked how he liked his ushering
work, one small Irish newsboy-scout
"Work? Are you kidding? Don't
you like to see Michigan play?"
During the second half of the
game, the scouts do not usher, but
are free to watch the game from
seats reserved for them.
Many of the scouts make their
first contact with the University as
ushers and many of them return as
students. Included in this group is
Michigan's 1941 All-American full-
back, Bob Westfall.

Classification, Rating Planned
For Midwest BusAd Schools

Plans are underway for the classi-
fication and rating of schools of-
fering professional instruction in
business administration, Dean Rus-
sell A. Stephenson said yesterday.
Six business administration deans
from colleges throughout the midwest
discussed the immediate organiza-
tion of a system of classification of
the various types of business schools
in a recent meeting.
This was a preliminary explora-
tory conference, explained Dean
Stephenson, to feel out the possi-
bility of composing a list of all
schools of business administration, so
that every college will know how
business instruction is being given
The object of this report, stated
Dean Stephenson, is to aid in guid-
ing the business student in the selec-
tion of a school adaptable to his par-
ticular problems and interests.
The University School of Business
Administration is classified in the
professional instruction category be-
cause it offers advanced professional
degrees. An incidental amount of
business training is given in some
colleges in connection with a general
education. Other schools not con-
nected in any way with universities

teach intensified vocational training
in the field of business.
It must be recognized, explained
Dean Stephenson, that distinct ob-
jectives and different methods of
obtaining them are employed by each
school. It is highly desirable, he con-
tinued, to present all types of busi-
ness education.
The first step to be taken by the
comin tee of deans, Dean Stephen-
son said, : to gather information for
the classificavion report.
