ENINERING OIEIv 'ITY:
Parade by Torch Light
Marks Vulcan Initiation

(EDITOR'S NOTE - This is an-
other in the series of articles on
men's honorary societies at the Uni-
versity as prepared by Janet Watts.)
Greased with crank case oil and
smeared with lamp black, eleven
men were recently marched across
Medical Essay
Contest Opens
Dean C. H. Peake has an-
nounced that prizes of $50 and
$25 will. be offered for the best
essay submitted in this year's Sar-
gent Lee Medical History Prize
contest.
The contest is restricted to jun-
ior and senior pre-medical stu-
dents and freshmen in medical
school under the combined curric-
ultim.
THE ESSAYS MAY discuss any
phase of the history of medicine
and should be from 3,000 to 5,000
words in length. Two typed, double
spaced copies must be submitted
to Dean Peake's office by May 1.
Students interested in entering
the contest may consult with
Dean Peake or the members of
the committee which includes
Prof. Adam Christman of the
chemistry department, Prof. Fred-
erick Test of the zoology depart-
ment and Prof. John Arthos of
the English department.

the diag in a torch light parade
to the engine arch in one of the
most colorful tapping ceremonies
on campus.
The men were juniors and sen-
iors selected by Vulcans to be-
come members of the engineering
honor society.
EACH YEAR the group takes
engineering students who have
excelled in scholarship and lead-
ership. They are selected by vote
of the old members.
Following the. tapping cere-
monies Vulcans hold a formal
initiation in their room in the
Union.
Established in 1902, Vulcans
was organized by a group of en-
gineers who hoped to lead the en-
gineering school into a more dom-
inant position on campus.
HIGHEST on the Vulcanpro-
gram is the plan to build a ce-
ment memorial to graduates of
the engineering school. The block
would be placed near the arch.
The group also hopes to put
out a handbook similar to the
pamphlet published by Tri-
angles. The book would con-
tain information on the engi-
neering school and be distribut-
ed to all freshmen engineers.
Symbolized by a brass anvil, the
group is led by George Johnson,
president, and Tom Bayless, sec-
retary-treasurer.

Finds Less
Supervision
Hel sWork
The supervisor who permits the
people working under him to par-
ticipate in making decisions will
find that they will do better work,
according to a recent study con-
ducted by the University's Sur-
vey Research Center.
"The more opportunities for
spontaneous self-direction a job
offers, the more the people will
get from their task," Dr. Daniel,
director of the survey said.
THIS SURVEY, conducted in
the home office of a large insur-
ance company, aimed to find out
some of the psychological factors
related to group productivity.

VIELLE TRIO TO PLAY:
Hit Tunes' To Be Heard
From 15th, 16th Century

University students will get a
chance to hear the "hit tunes" of
the 15th and 16th century when
the Vielle Trio offers a string con-
cert at 8 p.m. Wednesday in the
Rackham Lecture Hall.
Playing instruments described
as ancestors of the modern fiddle
family, the trio will reconstruct
a concert of the Middle Ages or
Renaissance.
* * *
MEMBERS OF the Vielle Trio
are Miss Beatrice Dohme, and
Franz Siedersbeck, alto - vielle;
Werier Landshoff, tenor and
coitra-vielle. Their vocal ac-
compi animent is tenor Du Bose
Robertson.
The instruments that the Trio
plyIs closely resemble the mod-
ern violin or viola, with several
basic differences. For example,

the "soundpost," which in-
creases volume in today's in-
struments, is absent.
The vielle, though shaped like
a modern fiddle, is flat at the
front and back like a guitar.

NEW VA HOSPITAL-Work has begun on the Veterans Administration's 500-bed regional hospital,
which will be operated in close association with the University Medical School. The hospital,
to be erected at Geddes Rd. and Glacier Way, will cost an estimated $10,000,000. Approximately
1,000 hospital personnel will be housed in a separate apartment building by the VA, which also
plans to build a 20-room nurses home.

A UNIVERSITY information desk will be installed in the lobby
on the first floor this spring, according to W. K. Pierpont, University
controller.
The main elevator isn't running yet, but a blue door opens
on the stairs that will take you to the upper regions of the
building.
The second floor is devoted to University administrative and
executive offices. The Vice-President and Secretary of the Uni-
versity and part of the business offices have already moved in.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
ARE YOU GOOD AT SELLING?
Whatever your ambition is going to be
in life, you're going to be selling one
way or another. You may have to
sell your ideas, your potentialities, or
some other thing. All you need is
experience. Here is the opportunity
to get that experience.
Students' interests have been aroused
on the excellent students' rates on
Life and Time magazines due to wide-
ly circulated advertising and thou-
sands of circulars. Statistics in other
colleges show that at least 35% of
the students will order subscriptions.
Only one-tenth that number have
lone so at Michigan, so the field is
wide open for big profits. Hundreds
of anvassers are wanted now---to
call students by telepliolne and to
contact students in person to take
their orders. Out of every ten stu-
dents you contact, you will sell four
subscriptions at least. Every student
must be contacted in the next few
months.
You get large commissions plus a bo-
nius plan. You get sales experience
selling a pair of famous magazines
to an interested public. You will
earn from $50 to $125 a month for
spare time work.
)rop in tonight at 8 p.m. for the first
promotion meeting. You will receive
an order book and a schedule of rates
and commissions. You will hear a
valuable talk on how to go about
con tacting students and selling them
subscriptions. You will be assigned
a group of the alphabet in an area
and you will be assigned a telephone
hour. You will be under no obliga-
tion if you come down tonight. If
tc idea appeals to you, you can
sign up immediately.
Meetings are on Monday, Wednesday
and Friday nights at 8. The location
is Room 202, Darling Building, loca-
ted at the corner of East Liberty and
