OTHERS WORK, THEY REST:
'U' Postmen Await Annual Yule Lull

* * * *

By VERNON EMERSON
As post office employes through-
out the country begin tp sweat out
the approach of the Christmas
rush season, University postmen
are looking forward to a vacation.
When the University closes down
for the Christmas holidays, its
postmen will get a rest too.
"But it will be only a slight
one," according to Jack Morton-
sen, who heads the University's
mail department. "We'll prob-
ably still be one of the busiest
places around here."
Mortensen explained that there
is seldom a slow moment in his
department the year round. "We
handle all the out-going mail for
the University, as well as inter-
departmental mail."
THE UNIVERSITY post office
is located in the basement of the
Administration Building, in the
same wing as the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs.
Staffed with a six-man crew,
the department has the job of
seeing that thousands of Uni-
versity bulletins, announcements,
pamphlets, newsletters and book-
lets are sent on their way to all
corners of the world.
Workers related that they send
nearly 300,000 bulletins from the
various schools and colleges each
year. All told, they estimated that
they do $4,000 worth of business
each month-in stamps.
Dean Named
B New Law
The reappointment' Monday of
Dr. Henry F. Vaughan to the den-
tal research council of the U.S.
Public Health Service came as a
result of recent legislation in
Congress.
According h to Dr. Vaughan,
Dean of the School of Public
Health, the addition of two re-
search councils by Congress to
the five councils already in op-
eration necessitated a reorgani-
zation of all personnel.
To accomplish this reorganiza-
tion, the members of all the coun-
cils were requested to resign, and
new appointments were made. Dr.
Vaughan's was one of these.
He has 'already served three
years on the dental research coun-
cil.'
Among the duties of the coun-
cil is the direction of government
expenditures to non-federal insti-
tutions and the passing on pro-
posed research projects.

CAMPUS MAILMEN SORT, THEIR LETTERS
* * * *

GENERALLY THE busiest time
of the year is the first of the se-
mester when thousands of notices
are beirfg sent to new students.
But Mortensen noted that now
there is little let up.
"It's not like the quiet old
days. With a bigger student
body and big projects like the
Phoenix Memorial, we go at
* *

full pace all year-even during
vacations."
A job equal to getting the mail
out is that of picking up and de-
livering campus mail. It takes
two men covering the campus by
foot and truck twice a day to keep
up with the task.
One University mailmen, Ed
Vandawarker, has been delivering
mail to campus offices for the
past 40 years.

Harvard Blasts ROTC Comic
Books As Under College Level

Buy and Sell Through Daily Classifieds

The Army is aiming too low, or
so Harvard thinks.
Col. Charles Summerall, head of
Reserve Officers Training Corps at
Select Ensian Pies
Now, Seniors Told
Ai seniors and graduates who
have had their 'Ensian pictures
taken are urged to return their
proofs, immediately, according
to Joe Heinlein, 'Ensian pro-
motion manager.
The Ensian office will be open
for picture selections from 9:30 to
5 pam. and from 7 to 9 p.m. today
through Friday.
Any appointments for re-sittings
must be made immediately, Hein-
lein said. The photographers will
charge one dollar extra for these.
Abacus To Race
Modern Calculatoi-
A race between a modern busi-
ness machine and the standard
calculating instrument of the or-
ient, the abacus, will be a feature
of the 5th annual Business Ma-
chine Show of the. business ad-
ministration school to be held
Thursday and Friday.
Elton Suh, business administra-
tion student from Seoul, Korea,
will demonstrate how to use an
abacus.
Suh issued a challenge to all of
the 21 companies exhibiting ma-
chines to pit their products against
his abacus in a race to calculate
figures in the shortest time.

Harvard has declined to distribute
syme 1,000 "comic books" furnish-
ed by the U.S. Army to interest
Harvard freshmen in ROTC.
COL. SUMMERALL termed the
books "below the intellectual level
of college students."
The 14 page pamphlet, entitled
"Time of Decision," depicts a be-
wildered, - friendless freshmen
who finds social success, person-
ality developmentiand valuable
life-long training in the ROTC.
Col. Charles Wiegand of the Un-
iversity ROTC agreed with Har-
vard's Col. Summerall.
"The books have some value at
the high school level," he ' said,
''and that's where we use them in
this area. We have not distributed
them -to our college men since I
have been here, but there were
some given out during orientation
week."
"1 think comic books should
be below the level of college stu-
dents, if they aren't now," he
concluded.'
Phil Daykin, '50E, a ROTC sen-
ior, said, "The advantages of the
program speak for themselves-I
was going to join before I came to
college, and I made the decision
without any comic books."
