CAMPUS GROUPS PAY:
Eight More DP Students
May Enroll Here in Fall

If present arrangements go
through, eight more displaced stu-
dents will be enrolled at the Uni-
versity by next fall, Bill Miller,
chairman of the Committee for
Displaced Students, reported yes-
terday.
All but one of the new group of
students will arrive here directly
from Europe. Arrangements have
been made with the National Co-
ordinating Council for the Place-
ment of DP. students, which, in
turn, will contact the students
through the International Refugee
Organization of the UN.
* * *
SPONSORSHIP for the eight
students will be provided by var-
ious campus organizations. Funds
voted by the Student Legislature
will support a woman student who
will be placed in one of the resi-
dence halls.
Wesleyar Guild will provide
expenses for another woman
student, who will live in a sor-
ority house.
Housing, as well as general ex-
penses, will be furnished by the
Lutheran Student Association and
four fraternities, for a student
each. The fraternities are : Phi

Sigma Delta, Sigma Alpha Mu,
Trigon and Zeta Beta Tau.
THE ADMINISTRATION will
provide foreign student tuition
scholarships for these seven stu-
dents. The eighth student, who
is already in this country, has
been given a scholarship to the
Law School.
With the arrival of this new
group the total of displaced stu-
dents on campus next fall will
have reached 16. Sylvestre Mar-
cingjanis, one of the seven stu-
dents brought here by the Com-
mittee for Displaced students
this spring, will have graduated.
But the rest of the group, as
well as the two students who
came here under the auspices of
Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority and
Zeta Psi fraternity, respectively,
will remain at the University.
The new students to come from
abroad will be screened by the
overseas staffs of IRO and other
resettlement agencies. An Aca-
demic Credit Review Board will
check the scholastic records of
each of the students. Transporta-
tion costs to this country will be
paid by the IRO.

O'Neill Drama
Opens Festival
Of FivePlays
Father, Mother, Son
Take Leading Roles
The first troupe of actors for
the Ann Arbor Drama Season will
arrive tonight for rehearsals and
performances of Eugene O'Neill's
"Ah, Wilderness."
Almost the entire cast, includ-
ing stars Ernest Truex, Sylvia
Field and Barry Truex, will be on
hand along with student actors
to put the play into shape be-
fore it opens May 9 in Lydia
Mendelssohn.
"AH,'WILDERNESS" is the first
>f a group of five plays of the
revived Drama Festival. It will be
followed by "Twelfth Night,"
"Night Must Fall," "As You Desire
Me" and "The Heiress."
Truex, who is equally familiar
to the stage and screen audi-
ences, has been a beloved the-
atrical figure ever since his ear-
liest appearances with such fa-
mous names as Lillian Russell,
Mary Pickford and Clare Boothe
Luce.
His most recent appearances in
New York have been with Eve
Le Gallienne's American Repor-
tory Theatre and in "Oh, Mr.
Meadowbrook" in which his wife,
Sylvia Field, who will star with
him in "Ah, Wilderness" played
opposite him.
A THIRD MEMBER of the
Truex family, Barry Truex, will
enact the role in "Ah Wilderness"
which is his in real life-that of
the youngest son of a famous par-
ent.
Good season tickets are still
available and may be purchased
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the box
office of Lydia Mendelssohn
every day but Sunday. Tickets
for individual productions will go
on sale May 5.

ORIGINAL POLEMITACTI CA:
Campus ROTC Survives Ups, Downs

Of all the days in the year, only one is
reserved just for telling that grandest
A ,person in the world just how
wonderful she really is.

By PHOEBE FELDMAN
The campus ROTC has a stormy
past of ups and downs.
With each war came the estab-
lishment of various training units
under various names, but as soon
as the wars stopped, the pro-
grams left the campus.
*, * *
ORIGINALLY provided for un-
der the founding statute of 1817,
"polemitactica," as it was termed
at the time, was to be one of the
13 projected programs of study in
the Catholepistemiad, or Univer-
sity of Michigania, along with an-
thropoglossica (literature) and
diegetica (history).
But when the pedantic terms
were cleared away and the Uni-
versity of Michigan actually be-
gan operating in 1841, military

science had been dropped from
the curriculum.
Although literature and history
survived after "anthropoglossica"
and 'diegetica" were erased fromj
the catalog, for the time being
military science went the way of
its elaborte parade-dress title.
* * *
IT WAS NOT until shortly be-
fore the Civil War that the first
"University Battalion" of 90 stu-
dents was finally formed under
the guidance of mathematics pro-
fessor W. P. Trowbridge, a West
Point graduate. The Battalion dis-
integrated, however, when Trow-
bridge left the University.
But the Civil War did bring
the return of army training to
campus. Names still figured

prominently in ROTC history,
with units colorfully calling
themselves the "University
Guards," the "Chancellor
Greys," and the "Ellsworth
Zuaves," and "Company A, U. of
M. Rifles."
Apparently though, the rifles got
a little rusty, and it wasn't until
the advent of the first World War
that a real Reserve Officers Train-
ing Corps was established.
Short-lived under this name,
the program was continued for a
short time as the SATC (Student
Army Training Corps).
Finally, in the following year
(1919), the ROTC was permanent-
ly reestablished on campus. This
semester, 675 students are enrolled
in the postwar ROTC program,
according to ROTC figures.
