Diplomas Halted as Vets
Return to Prerequisites

By RAY COURAGE
So you think that when you
have 60 hours in your field of
concentration you should get a
diploma?
Maybe so, but that hasn't
proved to be the case for half
a dozen former army intelligence
Job Application
Blanks Ready
Students Are Advised
To SignImmediately
Students interested in job regis-
tration who have not already re-
ceived registration material should
do so immediately, according to
Dr. T. Luther Purdom, director
of the University Bureau of Ap-
pointments and Occupational In-
formation.
Pegistration material may be
obtained at the Bureau of Ap-
pointments, 201 Mason Hall, dur-
ing office hours (9-12 and 2-4)
today and tomorrow. Blanks must
be returned one week from the
date they are taken out, he said.
This applies to all February,
June and August graduates as well
as to graduate students and staff
members who will be available for
positions within the next year.
The Bureau has two divisions, a
teaching division and a general
division, which includes service to
people seeking positions in bus-
iness, industry, and professions
other than teaching.
Jobs registration is a perma-
nent record service of the Uni-
versity. It is a centrally located
accumulation of credentials which
a student may made use of at any
time throughout his career.
Jobs registration is a free serv-
ice of the University. However,
those who register late will be
fined one dollar.
More Checks
Held for Vets
Checks are being held at the
Ann Arbor Post Office for the fol-
lowing veterans:
Richard L. Bennett, Charles W.
Braznell Robert L. Kiley, John J.
McKearney, Emanuel Mougianis,
Monsour Naghdu, Ronald E.
Notesyine, Arthur F. Paarfusser,
Robert Krick Schaffer, Dane E.
Smith, Roamn M. Szymanski,
Bernard R. Walling.
Veterans listed above should
pick up their checks by Monday,
when they will be returned to
Columbus, O.
S t u d e n t veterans awaiting
checks whose names are not listed
above are requested by the VA to
refrain from telephoning or call-
ing at the ,Post Office. Names of
veterans for whom checks have
arrived are forwarded to the VA
and The Daily as quickly as they
are received by the Post Office,
local VA officials explained.

officers who have more than
enough hours in their field of con-
centration, but are sadly lacking
in undergraduate credits.
Burke Peterson, class of ???,
who is one of this group ex-
plained:
"It all started several years ago
when the army was crying for
men with some knowledge of the
Oriental languages, or with ex-
perience in the Orient."
Applies for Training
Peterson was among those to
apply for military intelligence
training. In his first year at the
University he had amassed a total
of 12 hours in the Japanese lan-
guage.
After Peterson's group had en-
tered the army, they were sent
back to the University to continue
their study of Japanese. They
spent a year here and then re-
ceived another four months in-
tensive training before they were
sent overseas.
On their return to the Univer-
sity after the war, they found
that although they had fulfilled
their concentration requirements,
they were practically void of un-
dergraduate credits.
'Without a Class'
Truly "men without a class,"
they really had troubles when try-
ing to secure football tickets, Pe-
terson declared.
"It wasn't just a matter of con-
vincing somebody that we were
either sophs, or juniors, or sen-
iors, but that we were in any class
at all," he said.
"Maybe someday we'll grad-
uate," he added wistfully, "and
be able to put class of '48 or '49
after our names instead of ???."
'U' Museums
Display Guide
Is Published
A guidebook to the displays in
the Hall of Evolution of the Uni-
versity Kuseums has recently been
published, according to Dr. Lewis
B. Kellum, director of the Museum
of Paleontology.
The guide, prepared by Dar. Kell-
urn with the assistance of curators
in the Museums of Anthropology
and Paleontology, is a help to the
understanding of the exhibits in
the Hall of Evolution, on the
second floor of the Museums,
which illustrate the earliest
development of life.
Geologic Record
"Geologic records of evolution
indicate that life began many
millions of years ago in the
oceans," Dr. Kellum has explain-
ed. "The earliest known forms
are invertebrates which fluorished
in great profusion. From them
developed the primitive fishes,
which in turn were progenitors
of the land invertebrates.
"The changes from water to
land life was completed by the
reptiles. Later, from reptilian
types were developed the birds
and mammals."

Leave Poliev
Is Explained
By Waldrop
A utomatic Pay
To Be Granted
The Veterans Administration's
new leave policies were explained
yesterday by Robert S. Waldrop,
director of the Veterans' Service
Bureau.
Under the new regulations, vet-
erans will no longer earn leave
pay at the rate of two and a half
days each month during the
school year, he pointed out.
Instead, veterans enrolled under
the G.I. Bill will automatically
be granted 15 days of leave pay
each year, he said.
Will Notify Vets
Veterans who do not desire
this leave pay will be notified
when they can make their deci-
sion known to the local VA later
in the semester, Waldrop added.
When veterans accept annual
leave with payment, they should
realize that it is deductible from
the educational training period to
which they are entitled, he said.
Waldrop advised veterans whose
certified training period may be
just sufficient to completemtheir
educational program to be cau-
tious about accepting leave pay.
Uninterrupted Payments
He explained that the new leave
policies will permit uninterrupted
subsistence payments to veterans
attending the University on an
accelerated year-round basis. Vet-
erans will b carried on VA sub-
sistence allowance rolls from the
date of enrollment until 15 days
after the end of a semester, he
continued.
Subsistence will be continued
automatically through not only
the Christmas and Spring vaca-
tions, but also the days between
the fall and spring semesters and
the spring and summer terms be-
cause they are considered part of
the educational training period,
Waldrop said.
Library Tour
For Grads Set
Members of the reference de-
partment of the General Library
will condust a lecture and tour
this week for graduate students
who have just entered the Univer-
sity.
Repeating a service that was
initiated last fall, the lecture will
be given at 4:15 p.m. today and
tomorrow, and at 10 a.m. Satur-
day, in Rm. 110 of the General
Library. Students may come at
the hour most convenient for
them.
