The University is a beautiful
place to Jim Shaker, '51L, al-
though he has never seen it.
The 24-year old freshman law
student has received his impres-
sion of the, campus through other
students. He has been totally blind
since he was 13.
* * *
"WHEN I FIRST came here, al-
most everyone I talked to d'escribed
the buildings to me and the way
they were laid out, especially in
the Law Quad," Shaker said.
"They often mentioned the beauty
of individual buildings and of the
trees and walks."E
"I could see at one time, and
the memories of these things are
very clear in my mind," he con-
tinued. "I can visualize the things
I remember and picture the cam-
pus. I might not even have the
right conception of it, though."
The world is far from dark
for the six-foot-three law stu-
dent, despite the loss of his
sight. He has made many
friends since he came here this
"The people here are wonder-
ful," he said. "It's amazing that
students who are busy can take
out time to be so friendly."
Shaker does much of his work
in Law School with the help of
readers-people in his classes who
read the cases aloud and help him
summarize them in braille.
* * * -
HE ALSO works up outlines and
records them on a recording ma-
chine. Then he plays the records
over to study them.
Shaker doesn't have a seeing
eye dog, but says, "There isn't
much to getting around the Quad."
Usually he said, there are
friends in his classes going the
same way he is, and they walk
along together.
Asked if he resented other peo-
ple's helping him when he did not
need it, Shaker replied, "Certainly
not. I think it's bad when a blind
person does resent it. People offer
to help you because they are in-
terested and kind."
SHAKER IS pretty modest
about his scholastic prowess, but
admitted, "There is a little more
to memorising when you hear a
thing rather than see it, I guess."
At Michigan State, where he got
his B.A. it history, he relied a
good deal on his memory and, sel-
dom took lecture notes.
He started to take notes in his
lectures here, but finally decided
against it. "Most of the time the
lecturers covered so much material
that I lost the thought of what
they were saying when I took
notes," he explained.
"I get more out of the lectures

T. A. SCHMIDT of the U. S.

"There are always job open-

Simmons said the most impor-
tant thing to learn in order to

Special Piano Brought im

The concert grand at Hill Audi-

Local piano dealers have hauled

Public Health
Lecturer Dies
Dr. George H. Ramsey, the man
responsible for the present facili-
ties in Michigan hospitals for the
care of tuberculosis victims, and
lecturer in the School of Public'
Health, died Tuesday at Saranac
Lake, N.Y.
On the faculty since 1942, Dr.
Ramsey had been on leave of ab-
sence-for the past three years be-
cause of illness.
Widely known for his contribu-
tions in the fields of tuberculosis
control and epidemiology, Dr.
Ramsey received his M.D. at Co-
lumbia in 1917. He was medical
director of the Detroit Department
of Health from 1918 to 1921, and
deputy Health Commissioner of
Michigan until 1926.
He then became professor of epi-
demiology at Johns Hopkins
School of Public Health, and held
other positions on health com-
missions in New York State.

The piano which will be used

Washington, D.C. after Serkin's
appearance there Nov. 18.
After the piano was set up on
its legs, the firm's concert artist
tuner put the finishing touches on
the instrument in readiness for
the recital.
FAR FROM being taken aback
by Serkin's arrangements, the
manager for the firm here said he

artists as Horowitz and Rachmani-

by just listening and getting the
notes from my readers," he con-4
tinued. "However, I haven't
quite convinced myself that I'm
doing the right thing."
A special arrangement has been
set up for Shaker to take his tests.
A non-legal student reads the test'
to him in a- separate room and he
types out the answers.
"LAW SCHOOL is more diffi-
cult than pre-law courses, there's
not much doubt about that," he
said. In fact, when Mortarboard
members offered to read textual'
material to him, Shaker found he
had only two hours a week dur-
ing which he could listen to them.
Shaker gets a kick out of
friends' surprised comments on
his good taste in clothes. He has
quite a system.
His brother helps him choose
his clothes and he has a whole
rack of ties which go with prac-
tically any suit. "When I'm go-
ing some place special, though,
I sometimes have some one else
look my clothes over," he said.
Shaker has become an avid root-
er for the Michigan football team,
although his loyalties were under-
standably divided in the opening
game with State. He listened to
most of the games on the radio,
and went up to the Stadium for
some of the games to get the
crowd spirit.

in Lansing, where he played
trumpet in the school jazz band.
He blames his conversion to
classics on music majors whom
hie knew at State. He said, "I
can still enjoy popular music,
but my interest lies mainly in
classics, now-especially Bach."
His favorite recording is
Vaughan William's "Fantasia on

-U. of M.
Boeing Airplane Company is expanding its Wichita,
Kansas, Division facilities and organization preparatory
to production of the Boeing B-47 Stratojet, the U.S. Air
Force's newest and fastest jet bomber.
Rated in the 600-mile-per-hour class and comparable
in size to the famed Boeing B-29, the Boeing B-47 has
swept-back wings and tail surfaces and is powered by six
jet engines. Additional emergency power is supplied by
eighteen JATO (jet assist take off) rockets in the sides
of the fuselage.
Long-range requirements for design engineers to par-
ticipate in the Stratojet program--as well as in other
major projects assigned to Boeing-Wichita-must be
filled from the current classes of graduating engineers.
For those who plan to make aviation engineering
their chosen profession, Boeing offers you the oppor-
tunity of starting your careers in an organization which
leads the field in the design and development of ultra.
modern high-speed military and commercial aircraft.
Boeing-Wichita engineering personnel representatives
have arranged with Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the Col-
lege of Engineering to conduct interviews at the Univer-
sity of Michigan on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday,
December 1, 2 and 3. U. of M. graduating engineers
are invited to meet with these representatives. Further
details are available at Dean Crawford's office.
