To Place All
All qualified Army ROTC grad-
uates will be commissioned, an-
nounced the Department of the
Army in a new plan for calling to
active duty ROTC graduates to be
commissioned between May 1 and
Sept. 30 of this year.
Entry of the commissioned offi-
cers into active duty will be phas-
ed so that approximately 6,800
7 will be called between July 1, 1955,
and June 30, 1956, and approxi-
mately 7,900 between July 1, 1956,
and June 30, 1957.
As far as branch authorizations
and limitations on total officer
procurement permit, branch re-
quirement must be met during the
next two government fiscal years,
It is possible that all graduates
of a particular branch may be re-
quired to enter active duty in the
first year because of high require-
ments for that branch. This would
apply to General Military Science
graduates allocated to that branch
as well as to branch material gra-
Each officer will attend his
branch basic course as his first
duty station. Accordingly, active
duty quotas will be' established
throughout the two year periodto
coincide with the capacity of the
service sclools to absorb these of-
Quotas Still Met
Within quotas to be announced,
graduates may volunteer for month
of entry into active duty. Month-
ly branch quotas must be met,
however. This will mean, in gen-
eral, that approximately one-
twelfth of the officers to be called
to active duty during a year will
enter the service each month.
Merit of the program, as an-
nounced by Department of the
Army, is twofold: (1) it will allow
those who wish to continue their
studies for a year or more the
time required to qualify for high-
er degrees; (2) it will allow those
who wish active duty at an earlier
date an opportunity to indicate
The Department stresses, how-
ever, that students will not neces-
sarily be permitted to enter on
active duty in the exact month of

Inscriptions of Pen-Testers
Reveal Hidden Personalities
By JANE HOWARD
Book store owners have a unique
way of analyzing customer's char-
That's the consensus at the
stores on State St., where a brief
two-day survey was conducted of
the things people write first when
they're trying out fountain pens.
And the results, while providing
scant material for anybody's psy-
chological thesis, are interesting.
Paper Restrains Customers
"There's something about a fresh,
staring piece of white paper," ac-
cording to one pen salesman, "that
makes people feel restrained. Give
a kid a pen to try out and he al-
most never writes what's really on
his mind-he obviously pauses for
a few seconds to think what he'll
"Usually," he added, "they
choose a safe line that wouldn't
incriminate anybody-like 'Uni-
versity of Michigan,' or 'this pen
Another store owner distinguish-
ed sharply between male and fe-
male pen customers. "The girls,"
he smiled, "seem to think there's
something disgraceful about seeing
their names written in public, ev-
en on a bookstore scratch sheet.
"If they've unconsciously scrawl-
ed their names, in trying out the
pens, they make a careful, meti-
culous effort to scratch them out
-as though they'd be blacklisted
for life if anybody saw their
Males Are Duller
"But for boys," he said, "it's a
different story. They usually write
dull stuff about the pens them-
selves-nothing very telling."
A handful of scratch sheets,
kept for reference in one day's
pen-selling in a bookstore here,
revealed what may be untold hid-
den wishes on the part of the cus-
tomers. One slip of paper was cov-
ered with the notation "Pike's
Peak"-probably written by a
wanderlust-affected male, while
another bore the interest note
"U.S. Mint" - repeated several
One pen customer, obviously a
music student, covered a sheet of
paper with part of a song score,
complete with treble clefs.

teaching elementary and glacial
geology at the University for five
years, plans to go to the Univer-

"I'm going primarily to teach
and do research," he said.
Prof. Zumberge and Prof. James
T. Wilson have been doing re-
search on the strength and other
)roperties of lake ice for the past
They are investigating how ice
behaves when stretched or put un-
der a load and what use man can
make of it.
"Minnesota has better ice con-
ditions for research than Ann Ar-
bor," Prof. Zumberge commented.
"While the ice in Ann Arbor sel-
dom exceeds one foot in thickness,
Minnesota's is much thicker."
He has done a great deal of re-
search on glacial geology. Work
for the government recently took
him to Greenland to examine lake
ice four feet thick.
Matter of Degree
"When I got off the airplane, I
asked .one of the air force men
the temperature. He said it was 20
degrees. I didn't realize until aft-
erwards that he meant 20 below.
Since it's always below zero there,
they just say 20."
When he went to the arctic por-
tion of Alaska to do research, Prof.
Zumberge said he was fascinated
by the lack of trees. Miles and
miles of barren wasteland was
something he had never seen be-
Prof. Zumberge received his de-
grees from his own state school,
the University of Minnesota. He
also studied at Duke, Colorado,
and, for one semester, here.
Prof. Zumberge and his family
will return to Ann Arbor by July
1. On August 1 he will go to the

rado. In September he will be
