Education Issues Discussed
By Michigan Schoolmasters



MAY DAY FESTIVAL-Hawaiian students who participated in the opening scene of the "Interna-
tional Pageant." Twenty-nine students combined their talents for song and dance to produce
this interpretation of a festive day in the islands.

The campus felt the effects of
an educational invasion yesterday
as hundreds of state high school
teachers met for the annual Mich-
igan Schoolmasters Club meeting.
They met in a general morning
session to hear Prof. Ralph W.
Tyler of the University of Chicago
discuss means of improving high
school teaching, then divided into
conference sections.
New Teaching Blood
At a conference on teacher
placement Dr. Eugene B. Elliott,
state superintendent of instruc-
tion, revealed that Michigan will
need approximately 3,600 more
teachers this year than will be
available. Rural schools are espe-
cially hard hit by the shortage
Students Get
eel' of Radio
On 'U' Station
Speech students will cram two
full days of broadcasting experi-
ence into six hours next Tuesday
and Wednesday as their "Opera-
tion 4006" gets underway.
Broadcasting over "Station
WMDS," 200 students in 10 speech
classes will get the "feel" of radio,
by sticking to advanced program
schedules, writing to order, pro-
ducing, acting and announcing in
their own programs.
Right now they're polishing up
plans for quiz shows, soap operas,
musical programs, myteries, com-
edies-all the types of broadcasts
that real stations carry.
They're even experimenting
withetheir own sound effects.
They'll broadcast from Rm.
"4006" of Angell Hall from 7 to
10 p.m. both days. Three studios,
including one classroom wired for
sound will be used, with pro-
grams alternating between them.
Since all programs must be con-
densed to fit into the limited
schedule, a 30 minute show is
shortened to about 10 minutes,
and a 15-minute program runs
only about six-on a rough three
to one ratio.
A public "listening post" will be
in Rm. 25 of Angell Hall, and non-
speech students who want to sit in
on audience participation pro-
grams can do so--though no re-
frigerators or trips to Bermuda
will be handed out.

with 1.100 already closed because
of lack of teachers.
There will be 2,026 new teachers
graduating from colleges this
spring according to Dr. T. Luther
Purdom, director of the Bureau of
Appointments. Of these 90 will be
University graduates, education
school figures indicate.
However, surveys show that
one-fourth of the graduates will
never teach so that even by hiring
out of state teachers there will
probably be only 2,300 to meet a
need for nearly 5,000.
The need for elementary teach-
ers will be especially great in or-
der to match the growing enroll-
ment rising from the increased
birthrate of recent years, Dr. El-
liott said.
Zooming Birth Rate
Higher birth rates will also
catch up with universities and
colleges, Vice-President Marvin L.
Niehuss told a conference of deans
of women and girl's counselors.
"If post-war babies seek higher
education in the same proportion
as their predecessors, the enroll-
mentwill be nearly 3,000,000 in
1960-65, one-third more than it
is today," he said.
Facilities, physical plans and fi-
nancial support of higher educa-
tion must be vastly expanded in
the next ten years to meet this
growth, he emphasized.
Average Salary Rise
A bright note on the salary
problem was sounded by a Bureau
of Appointments survey which in-
dicated that the average salary
has gone from $1,100 in 1939 to







of all committees authorized by

the Board of Directors. (Article



RKO Hunting
New Tarzan
The successor to Tarzan of the
jungles and the movies is being
sought on the University campus,
according to a letter received on
campus from RKO studios.
The letter, which was signed by
a talent director, stipulated quali-
fications for the new Tarzan.
Among other things, he must be
between the ages of 22 and 25
years and at least six feet, three
inches tall in his stocking feet.
Prospective Tarzans must also,
according to the letter, be excel-
lent swimmers and "general all
around athletes.-
"He should have broad shoul-
ders, full chest and muscles fully
developed, yet not to an abnormal
The letter did not stress acting
ability of the candidates. "Al-
though acting experience would
of course be helpful, a strong face
aWlIe toproject -a pleasing person-
ality is even more important."

Money Is Something
You can't just walk up and
take a Detroit paper out of the
rack each morning, Merle G.
Sheetz, 45, 514 E. Williams found
out in Municipal Court yesterday.
Judge Jay H. Payne fined Sheetz
$10 and added $1.25 costs for the
papers he had taken from a stand
in front of a restaurant.

City May Shift
To Daylight
Savings Time
Ann Arborites will have to do
some fancy calculating in the next
two weeks to keep up with local
and national time changes as a
good part of the nation goes on
Daylight Savings Time.
Complications will set in tomor-
row when Detroit changes to sum-
mer time and will continue until
May 3 when the City Council will
probably vote to put Ann Arbor
on the new time. At the last two
council meetings an amendment
to a local ordinance was passed
making it possible for the council
to change Ann Arbor time to DST
by resolution.
Radio programs originating in
cities which go on Daylight Sav-
ings will come to Ann Arbor an
hour earlier. The Daily will go
to press an hour earlier since the
Associated Press wire service
which originates in Detroit will go
off at 1 a.m. instead of 2 a.m.
Students going to and from DST
areas will have to change their
watches each time they leave or
return to Ann Arbor for at least a
On May 3, after the May Fes-
tival, if the council acts on the
time changing ordinance, all cal-
culations will have to be thrown
out the window. For the most
part, original time schedules will
resume for Ann Arbor residents.
The University will probably
follow Ann Arbor time, officials
said yesterday.
