OUTING SEASON:
Graduate Club Roughs It'
In Old Shirts, Dungarees

Amsterdam Canal

CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING

s

By EVA SIMON
Every Sunday a group of staid
graduate students and instructors
drop their books, don dungarees
and old shirts and "rough it" in
one of the Graduate Outing Club's
typical excursions.
Members of the club speak with
pride of their triple-thonged motto
-"Never go through a gate when
you can climb a fence; always
walk on the railroad tracks; al-
ways walk through the thickest
part of the forest."

For NROTC
200 Midshipmen
Eligible for Tests
The fourth nation-wide com-
petitive examinations for the
Naval Reserve Officers Training
Corps College Training Program
are scheduled for December 3,
1949, the Navy has announced.
Over 200 Midshipmen are now
attending the University under the
NI4OTC program.
* * *
ALL MALE citizens 17 to 21
years of age with a high school
education or equivalent, are elig-
ible.
Candidates successful in pass-
ing the aptitude tests will bein-
terviewed, given physical exam-
inations and if found to be qual-
ified, their names will be sub-
mitted to a Selection Commit-
tee.
Quotas have been assigned to
each state and territory on basis
of high school population. The
Navy expects to enter about 2,000
students in the program beginning
in the fall, 1950.
STUDENTS selected by com-
petitive examination if accepted
by one of the 52 colleges with
NROTC units, will be appointed a
Midshipman, USNR, and will have
tuition, books, and normal fees
paid for by the government.
While a member of the
NROTC program, a Midshipman
receives $50.00 monthly for four
years of college work and upon
graduation may be commis-
sioned an officer in the Regular
Navy or Marine Corps.
A Midshipman, graduated from
the NROTC program is obligated
to serve two years of active duty.
At the end of this time, he may
remain in the Service or transfer
to the Reserve and return to civil-
ian life.
Applications and further infor-
mation are available at NROTC
Headquarters, North Hall.
Interest Claimed

HIKING, SWIMMING, picnics,
canoeing, square dancing and ski-
ing and skating during the winter
have been among the club's activ-
ities in the past.
"We are willing to do any-
thing and everything that mem-
bers of the club may want to
try," Miss Edith Kovack, Grad.,
president of the club, explained.
When the weather cancels out
picnic plans, the group's aspiring
chefs turn out pet dishes in their
clubroom in the basement of the
Rackham Building.
* * *
AT THE CLUB'S first meeting
last Sunday, newcomers were in-
itiated in high style to the tune
of an eight mile hike.
Miss Kovack invited any grad-
uate students interested in join-
ing the club to come to the
next meeting, at 2:30 p.m. to-
morrow in the Rackham Build-
ing.
A canoeing trip is being planned
for tomorrow and, as Miss Ko-
vack pointed out, "If things turn
out as usual, at least a few of the
canoers will get a chilling dip in
the Huron River in the bargain."
Jet Turbine
May Power
Modern Auto
Low Grade Fuel
Seen AsPossibility
The automobile of tomorrow
may be powered by a gas turbine
engine Prof. Frank L. Schwartz of
the Mechanical Engineering dept.
told members of the American So-
ciety of Mechanical Engineers.
A gas turbine engine can operate
on low grade fuels such as hydro-
gen, butane, acetylene and coal
gas or can use gasoline, Prof.
Schwartz said.
* * *
OTHER ADVANTAGES would
be fewer moving parts, no need
for anti-freeze and a 50% saving
in the weight of the engine, he
said.
"The automobile engine of to-
day uses a complicated system
involving pistons, valves, crank-
shaft, transmission and fluid
pump. Compared with this, the
gas turbine requires only two
rotating elements and a speed
reducer."
Several companies in the United
States have designed and built
small gas turbines. Recently, the
Department of Commerce an-
nounced the development of a gas
turbine automobile in Czechoslo-
vakia having from 60 to 80 horse-
power, Prof. Schwartz added.
* * *
THERE ARE many problems to
be solved before the gas turbine
comes into practical use.
But, if only a small portion of

AMSTERDAM CANAL-Water taxis line the righthand side of

through the old and new sections of Amsterdam. Canal boats are
tied up along the lefthand side preparing to load cargo.
Dutch People Impress Staffers
With 'Sold' Friendly Land

(Continued from Page 1)
IN AMSTERDAM the citizens
opened their homes to us. A doctor,
away on vacation turned his house
over to us to use during our stay.
The Dutch seemed more inter-
nationally minded than any na-
tionality we encountered in
Europe.
Most Hollanders speak three
other languages-English, French
and German-in addition to their
native tongue. Theirs is a small
country which can be crossed by
train in less than three hours.
Such close contact with other
My-stery Land
Road Decision
N E1
Not Expected
No decision on whether roads
through John H. Hannah's "mys-
tery tract" of land in nearby Syl-
van township can be blocked off
will be reached for at least several
weeks, County Road Commissioner
Kenneth L. Hollenbeck said yes-
terday.
The County Road Commission
met yesterday but didn't even dis-
cuss the matter, he added.
THE ROADS run through a
4,000 acre tract of stony farmland
15 miles north of Ann Arbor, for
which Hannah paid $500,000. Mys-
tery shrouds the intended use of
the land.
Last summer, Hannah asked
the County Road Commission to
block off the five roads running
through the land. Complaints
from nearby residents caused
a public hearing to be held on
August 26.
The Commisison can take as
long as it needs to make its deci-
sion, once the hearing is held, Hol-
lenbeck said.
Let Lefties Alone
Forcing the left-handed child to
be right-handed, may cause an
emotional disturbance and unus-
ual behavior, such as stuttering or
stammering.

countries demands a knowledge of
the major languages.
A DEEP SEATED hatred for the
Germans, understandable in the
light of what Germany did to Hol-
land during the war, is character-
ized by their almost universal re-
fusal to speak German.
The Dutch people we spoke
to seemed resigned to the idea
of another war. A Dutch citizen,
recently employed by the Ameri-
can occupation forces in Ger-
many, said :
"When the next war comes, I'm
goingto buy myself a 'tijalik' "-
an old type combination cargo-
houseboat-"and take my family
as far away as I can."
* * *
HIS TWO CHILDREN had been
born during the war, one of them
on a haystack just before the
liberating forces entered the
country. Both had been released
recently from a Swiss sanitarium
where they had been placed by the
U. S. government.
On the question of Indonesia
the Dutch have a convincing ar-
gument.
Their tiny country, the most
overpopulated in the world, cannot
be expected to satisfy the needs
and wants of its 10 million in-
habitants.
"WE HAVE always regarded In-
donesia as almost a second home-
land," one of them said.
Many students we spoke to
came when they reached school
age from homes in Indonesia to
receive an education in the
mother country. They were look-
ing forward to the day when
they could return.
Finally, they believe the Indo-
nesians are not ready to govern
themselves. If the Dutch lose con-
trol they fear it will become
another stamping ground for
Communists, a very real danger.
Statue Built by Pennies
Twenty-seven years after Eu-
gene Field died, children from all
parts of the country took pennies
to school to help pay for a statue
to his memory. The statue, show-
ing bronze figures of an angel and
two sleeping children, stands in
Lincoln Park, Chicago.
