During the course of registra-

freshmen and transfer students
are examined from teeth to toe-
nails by a system which strongly
resembles the late Henry Ford's
famed assembly line.

They will cooperate with the city's

students also comes in for inves-

interviews the staff of psychia-

the classification is shown by the
fact that most cases where trouble
develops have already been noted

Dr. Forsythe.
Exposure to Contagion
One of the chief purposes of the
exam is to protect students from
exposure to contagion, Dr. For-
sythe said. He added that it may
also indicate defects which, if not
corrected, would keep the student
from getting the most from his
college life.

SNOWBALL SENDOFF-Student veterans give warm response to icy barrage of Congress here, as
they prepare to bombard the nation's capital with plastic reminders of the veterans' cost of living
plight. Bearing the inscription, "We've got as much chance as a snowball in hell of living on
present subsistence rates," the snowballs preceded a delegation to Washington to campaign for
increases in GI allottments.

In view of the current demandl
for engineers, February graduates,
in the various depvtmrents of
engineering are havi littie dif-
ficulty finding employment. t
Engineerin. dcpar ncts. witht
the exception of aeronautical, re-
port that requests for engilieers
far outrun the number of grad-
uates. The (hInand for technical{
men by the larger employers of
engineers has warranted an un-
usual number of them sending in-
terviewers to Ann Arbor. Small
concerns, who don't generally con-
tact schools for graduates, have
been flooding many departments
with letter requests.
288 Graduates
To fill this unusual demand
there will be approximately 288
engineering graduates this semes-
ter'. 128 will be gadua+ted in in-
dustrial mechanical and incehan i-
cal engineering and all of these
should have several promising
choices of employment. Typical-
ly, that department has on file
several dozen letters that have not
yet been posted which request
The electrical engineering de-
partment reports that 43 under-
graduates will receive degrees.
The demands of interviewers
alone might well have taken all
of these. The 22 civil engineers
to be graduated have been sev-
eral times bid for by mid-west
requirements alone, Many of these
have found positions on their own,
Aeronautical Engineers
Aeronautical engineers have
found employers less enthusiastic.
The demands of interviewers have
been limited and many large con-
cerns have reported all positions
In regard to this present de-
mand for engineers, M. M. Boring
in a "Report of the Committee on
Manpower" states that the de -
mand for engineers from the class
of 1947 will total 36,200 with a
supply of 23,000. By 1950 their
requirements will drop to 31,200

while it is estimated 58,000 will
be graduated that year.
Good Prospects
As encouragement to a few,
Boring adds that chemical engi-
neers should reach a balance be-
tween Supply and demand or still
be in shortage in 1950. Civil en-
gineers will not reach a balance
before 1951. Though estimates
show an oversupply of mechanical
engineers in 1950. "I feel that we
can use good mechanical engi-
neers as fast as they can be pro-
duced," Boring said.

Cost of the proposed project

estimates now are: for the muni-
