HELP WAR VICTIMS:
Collection To Be Made
For UN Children's Drive
The chorus of 7,500,000 grateful children who owe thein lives
to food and clothing provided them by many relief organizations
may swell to powerful proportions but it is ominously overshadowed
by the cries of 222,500,000 children of the world who are still face-
to-face with starvation.,4
An opportunity to help these famine victims will be given stu-
dents from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. next Wednesday. A squad of volunteers
from several cooperating campus organizations will man the buckets
at convenient campus cross-roads.7 * * *

Groups Cooperating
The drive will be carried out
through Lane Hall in conjunction
with the Washtenaw County Cam-
paign which is already underway.
Cooperating campus organizations
include Pan-hel, IFC, AVC, UWF,
YPCM and seceral student relig-
ious organizations. Campus chair-
man is Seymour Goldstein, chair-
man of the famine committee of
SRA.
The student campaign is an
arm of a vast United Nations Ap-
Local high school students
swung behind the UN Appeal for
Children with a vota by the
senior class of University High
School to contribute $100 of
$150 they had collected for a
weekend class outing, it was
learned yesterday.
The donation was made when
it was found there was no avail-
able weekend for the trip before
their terms end.
peal for Children being carried
out in. 45 countries. The Amer-
ican drive is spearheaded by the
American Overseas Aid Commit-
tee.
Twenty-five national and in-
ternational labor, farm, religious,
social and relief agencies are co-
operating to make this a sort of
community chest of the world.
Because of the extreme need
represented by these millions of
starving children, the goal is a
dollar a student," Seymour Gold-
stein, chairman of the campus
drive said.
Public Health
Called Fertile
Fi eld for Jobs
There are practically unlimited
opportunities for medical and
non-medical workers in the field
of public health. Dr. John Hanlon,
of the University School of Public
Health, said yesterday. He spoke
at one of the current series of ad-
visory talks on professional
schools sponsored by the literary
college.
"Public health is really an amal-
gamation of professions," Dr.
Hanlon said. "It includes not only
physicians but statisticians, ad-
ministrators, nurses, engineers and
dentists. It is the newest profes-
sion, not just a small group inter-
ested in things like cleaning out
swamps."
Dr. Hanlon told the group that
the public health program at the
school consists of six main groups.
These are control of communica-
ble diseases; maternal, infant, and
child health care; environmental
health care (water and food pri-
marily); vital statistics; health
education; and laboratory work.
Many new openings are becom-
ing available in administration
work, particularly hospital ad-
ministration, he said. The Uni-
versity is planning a hospital ad-
ministration curriculum which will
probably begin next fall, Dr. Han-
lon added.
Most of the students taken into
the pblic health school, which
has a number of openings, have a
professional school degree, al-
though some interested in, for ex-
ample, laboratory or administra-
tive work do not. Dr. Hanlon em-
phasized the fact that the en-
trance requirements to the public
health school are very pliable.

Speech Group
Will Present
Final Offering
'Berkeley Square'
Starts Wednesday
John Balderston's play "Berke-
ley Square" will be presented next
week, Wednesday through Satur-
day, May 19 through 22, as the
speech department's final major
dramatic bill of the season.
Balderston, an American au-
thor, wrote "Berkeley Square" in
1928 and it has enjoyed repeated
success in this country and
abroad. The plot concerns Peter
Standish, a 1928 American, whose
spirit is projected back to the
year 1784 when his namesake and
most distinguished ancestor lived.
American Visitor
The criginal Peter is concerned
at that point with a visitor from
America to the ancestral home of
the Standish-Pettigrew family in
Berkeley Square, London. Peter,
of 1928, as Peter, of 1784, knows
the future and is constantly mak-
ing faux pas. The daughter of the
household in 1784, whom Peter
loves, dies, but when he returns
to 1928, he determines to live
with her memory because he still
loves her.
Special Ticket Prices
William P. Halstead will direct
the play, with settings by Jack
Bender.tStudents will be granted
special ticket rates for Wednesday

ances.
All tickets will go on sale next
Monday at 10 a.m. in the theatre
