Volunteer Services Department
Assists University Hospital Staff

By SUE GARFIELD
In the fall of 1953 75 students
gave 1,476%/ hours of service to
the Volunteer Services Department
of the University Hospital.
Last spring 107 students volun-
teered 3,00414 hours. Each year
thousands of patients come to the
hospital to go through Outpatient
Clinics for diagnosis and recom-
mendations for treatment, and
some for registration as bed pa-
tients for periods ranging from a
few days, to many months.
The majority of these people
come from outside Ann Arbor,
leaving their family and friends.
behind. At the hospital, patients
receive the best in nursing and
medical care, but there are many
"extra" personal services which
volunteers can do.
Department Established in 1941
For this reason, the Volunteer
Services Department was estab-
lished in 1941, and reorganized in
January, 1953, to assist the regu-
lar hospital staff and to save them
time in their professional work.
They have done much by giving a
few hours of their limited time
each week to bring added friend-
ship and a touch of the "outside"
world to the patients.
The Volunteer Services Depart-
ment, as the main hospital, is un-
der the control of the Board of
Regents of the University and is
pne of the major self-supporting
units on campus. More than 2,400
people are employed in the hos-
pital, serving 20,000 bed patients
and 40,000 new clinic patients
yearly.
To comply with the growing
hospital, many more volunteers
are needed then ever before, ac-
cording to Mrs. Adrea W. Keyes,
director of volunteer services.
Friendly Service
When students offer their ser-
vices as a volunteer to the Uni-
versity Hospital, they assume a
part not only in giving friendly
services to the patients, but the
added responsibility of under-
standing the hospital itself, its
many functions, problems and ser-
vices. The spirit of their services
determines their value as a vol-
unteer.
The community service commit-
tee of the Legaue fills all requests
for short time volunteer services
at the hospital. Chairman Joan
Hyman is assisted by Charnie
Butman, Paula Limberg, Carol
Downs and Ursula Gebhard.
Students may serve as a volun-
teer in any one of the many ca-
pacities, depending on their own
interests, convenience and the
amount of time they wish to de-
vote to the service.

FEDERAL AID:
Tax Center Opened

By MARY HELLTHALER
Did you pay your income tax
last March?
If not, you'd better watch out.
There are internal revenue agents
in town. It is all part of a federal
government plan to provide an
Advanced Training Center for rev-
enue men, under the direction of
Prof. Charles J. Gaa of the School
of Business Administration.
Planned about a year ago when
Congress appropriated money for
it, the project got underway in
July. The Internal Revenue De-
partment sent bids to various col-
leges and universities, asking for
a prospectus.
'U' Business Administration
Bids were received from 22 uni-
versities, and the business admin-
istration school received exclu-
sive rights. As a result, there are
100 revenue men on campus be-
tween the ages of 25 to 35 with
at least one year in the Depart-
ment and holding varied college
degrees.
Over 90 per cent are certified

public accountants and all are
from the Auditing Division.
Purposes and hopes of the pro-
jects include technical improve-
ment by taking graduate work in
new corses, a broadening of view-
point and perspective and the re-
cruitment of young people from
universities for a career in the
government service.
The men were selected on a
nerit basis from applications,
which were first screened by 64
district offices all over the Unit-
ed States. They underwent subse-
quent investigation by 9 regional
offices, which received quotas from
Washington. One hundred regu-
lars and alternates were chosen,
from about 850 applicants.
Selection of Applicants
Criteria for the selection was
future potential in terms of ability
and years of useful service, suc-
cess on job performance and men-
tal alertness and ambition.
Also included was a demonstrat-
ed purpose to make the Internal
Revenue Service a career and sat-
isfactory personal characteristics
and conduct. The men had to
agree to spend three more years
in the service after completing
the course, or else agree to reim-
burse a part of the cost to the
government.
Although tuition, books and
transportation are paid by the
government in addition to $3 per
day and their regular salary, this
is no soft job. Each man is taking
18 hours of credit plus a lecture
series, and is subject to all Univer-
sity regulations. Supplies and oth-
er living expenses are paid for out
of their own pockets.

VOLUNTEER SERVICES-Lois Ash, a junior in the literary
school, is assisting Mrs. Ethel Morlock, a patient in University
