Panhel Elects Committees,
Orientates New Delegates

Have you ever tried to teach a
college junior or senior a folk
dance or game?
This is what members of the D-
127 Education School class do in
preparation for teaching elemen-
tary school classes. Students learn
various activities for teaching phy-
sical education although the course
is designed for classroom teach-
ers and not for physical education
The D-127 class is a prerequisite
for state certification, and mem-
bers attend the lectures, labs and
observations, into which the three
credit course is divided. The obser-
vations take place in Ann Arbor
elementary schools, while in the
labs, students teach each other
songs, folk dances and games.
Learn Rhythm Games
For half of the semester, stu-
dents learn how valuable rhythm
is to early elementary school chil-
The rhythm games that they
learn include fundamental walking
activities for first and second gra-
ders. In this type of game, chil-
dren are taught to imitate frogs
or jumping jacks, spinning leaves
or giants, unfolding flowers or
rocking horses.
In teaching more advanced
games, prospective teachers learn
to direct their pupils' activities un-
til the pupils themselves seem cap-
able of taking over leadership.
Teach Team Games
For the remainder of the semes-
ter, students learn to teach simple
and more highly organized team
games. Dodge-ball, and the "cat
and rat" game have become famil-
iar to many junior and senior edu-
cation students, while others have
improved their skills in soccer and
.volley ball.

This class has not only proved
valuable as a teaching aid, but
Education School graduates have
said that many games and ideas
learned in the class have been a
big help in conducting meetings
and in raising their own families.
Because this course may serve
so many purposes, class member-
ship is open to all students with
the consent of their individual{

College Students Can Budget Their Money

With All The Trimmings
(Not More Than 5,000 to a Customer)
*By our own admission
NO 3-1683 1015 East Ann Street

Do you need a budget?
For a great many people, the
word "budgeting" has an un-
pleasant connotation because it
has come to mean complicated
bookkeeping, a program of desper-
ate penny-pinching or an attempt
to live according to somebody else's
set of rules.
It is a good thing to be sensible
and thoughtful about money. That
is not true just because goodmon-
ey management makes money go
farther but because good planning


can mean less preoccupation with
money and a better, saner attitude
toward life.
If the college student is inter-
ested in money management, the
first thing he must do is outline a
plan for himself. It should be writ-
ten out and fairly detailed. Later,
he can modify it or carry on with-
out any bookkeeping at all.
Fix Amounts
After outlining his plan, the stu-
dent must set aside a certain
amount of money each week. He
should write down all his fixed
obligations such as paying the
laundry bill, buying toothpaste and
books. Then, if he sets aside a few
dollars each month for these pur-
poses, he will have the money
when he needs it.
An emergency fund is important
to meet future unexpected ex-
Another thing to consider when
making a budget is living expenses.
The students living in dormitor-
ies do not have much worry over
this problem but those living *in
apartments may need some ad-
Write Expenditures
By writing down how he spends
his money and by keeping mental
track of it, the student will spend
less money. He will see fewer mov-
ies, which, he probably did not
want to see anyway, and he will
drive his car fewer unnecessary
miles than he would have ordi-
Or else he can learn to live a
little more efficiently. There are
many people who dress well and

spend little money for their
Change Habits
The student can also change the
way he spends money. Instead of
having a car, he can do without
one and save money that way. In-
stead of smoking a pack of cigar-
ettes a day, the student might cut
down on them.
Sarah Lovelace, BAd, '55; com-
mented, "A budget is a wonderful
thing to have if you want to go
through four years of college."

Young manager
handles finances
for building of
$5,000,000 plant
In the next ten years, the demand for General
Electric industrial heating equipment will
double. To meet this demand, a giant new
plant (model at right) is being built at
Shelbyville, Indiana.
The plant will cost $5,000,000, and the
man responsible for handling finances for
the entire job is 32-year-old R. E. Fetter.
Fetter's job is important, responsible
Dick Fetter's work as Financial Manager of
the Department began long before General
Electric started building the plant. He and
his group first had to estimate probable op-
erating costs and predict whether the plant
would be profitable.
Now, during construction, Fetter's chief
concern is keeping track of all the expenses
on this multimillion-dollar project. When
the plant is completed, he will set up a
complete financial section and manage
everything from tax, cost, and general ac-
counting to payrolls, budgets and measure-
ments, and internal auditing.
25,000 college graduates at General Electric
This is a big job. Fetter was readied for it
in a careful step-by-step program of devel-
opment. Like Fetter, each of the 25,000 col-
