Lit School Counselors
Move Into.New Offices

Smile, Please

New counseling offices for upper
class students in the literary col-
- lege have received their baptism
of fire.
Located on the first floor of An-
gell Hall in the rooms which Pro-
vost James Adams formerly occu-
pied, the 'remodeled offices were
taken over by advisors in psychol-
ogy, political science and the pre-
professional programs during reg-
istration week.
AS SOON AS THE semester gets
under way, however, activities will
be expanded to include all the
major departments in the literary
college and the revised system for
upper-class counseling will be of-
ficially inaugurated.
The new system will centralize
the efforts of concentration ad-
visors formerly scattered all
over the campus.
A Board of Concentration Ad-
visors has been established to run
the program with Prof. Lionel
Laing of the political science de-
partment as chairman. These ad-

at regularly scheduled hours
throughout the semester. Thus
instead of the familiar rush at
the beginning and end of each
semester, students will be able to
plan their programs in an order-
ly, thoughtful fashion.
It is expected that this system
will provide more adequate
counseling as there will be time
for a closer examination of in-
dividual aims and needs and a
more personal relationship be-
tween the student and his ad-
There are other advantages in

New Society
Organized for
Film Studies
Group To Hold
Monthly Meetings
A student-faculty film study
group will make its first appear-
ance on campus as a full blown or-
ganization this fall.
The group, called the Gothic
Film Society, will meet once a
month in Rackham Amphitheatre
to make a serious study of the
development of the film as an art
form, according to Bill Hampton,
one of the directors. Printed com-
ments to explain films will be
given out at the meetings, he said.
* * *
MEMBERSHIP in the new or-
ganization will be limited to 238
graduate students and faculty
members, the seating capacity of
the auditorium. Interested persons
may contact Edgar Whan of the
English department who will send
them membership cards for $3.50.
Directors have planed a series
of nine programs including such
films as "The Cabinet of Dr.
Caligari," "M," starring Peter
Lorre and "Grand Illusion."
"If we get 100 per cent enroll-
ment, we will be able to list more
programs throughout the year,"
Hampton said.
The new group grew out of a
seminar in the Gothic tradition
in American literature conducted
by Prof. Austin Warren. During
the summer session they presented
a free film program to test en-
thusiasm for such an organiza-

Local Draft Boards Continue


Students who become 18 after
the school term starts need not
register at home but may do so
at the local draft board, a Selec-
tive Service report has revealed.
Michigan State Director Colonel
Glenn B. Arnold warned that the
law still requires registration of
all young men within five days
after their eighteenth birthday.
* * *
HE FURTHER advised that
when the registrant has a perma-
nent home, that address should
be supplied. The law is also spe-

cific in its requirements that every
registrant keep his local board in-
formed as to changes in address
or status under the Selective Serv-
ice Act.
This obligation still applies af-
ter registrants become 26, as well
as before, Colonel Arnold added.
The Washtenaw County draft
board is now located at 315-16
Municipal Bldg., 102 W. Huron.
New office hours are all day Mon-
days and Tuesdays, and each
Wednesday morning.
