Poll Topics
Problems of new residents and
employment opportunities are the
two topics chosen Wednesday by
the policy committee of the Ann
Arbor Self-Survey group for its
first survey this spring.
Tentative plans can for inter-
viewing to start in early April. In
the meantime committees will be
set up to design questionaires for
the survey.
The four committees will con-
sider: employment, planning in-
terviews with union officials, em-
ployees and Negroes; new resi-
dents, to include interviews with
agencies and businessmen dealing
with newcomers; youth, with em-
phasis on teen-age employment
problems but with additional data
to be compiled for later use; and
co-ordination of the questionaires,
along with planning of a survey of
the entire community.
The policy committee meeting
was presided over by William But-
zin, a local realtor, whom the ex-
ecutive board elected chairman at
its first meeting last month.
Butzin appointed Donald Pelz,
a study director at the Survey
Research Center, as Administra-
tive Director of the Self-Survey.
Thirty-six local organizations
are now sponsoring the group,
- established to study human rela-
tions problems in Ann Arbor. .

As a safety measure, the area
beneath that half of the building
in which test cells are located has
not been excavated. The remain-

rooms, and instrument check-out
The second floor of the build-

graduate research areas, a draft-

Due to noise and lack of space,
University officials thought it best

pleted are a printing and nuclear
reactor building. Five aeronauti-

Due to increased interest and
numerous questions concerning
current Army Reserve laws on the
part of U students, efforts are be-
ing made to clarify the situation
by the local reserve components.
According to Major Thomas D.
Krenitsky, Army advisor to reserve
units in this area, draft eligibles
now have several choicesof enlist-
ments with which to fulfill their
military obligations.
Perhaps the most convenient en-
listment for U students is the 6
year enlistment into the reserve
with no immediate activeduty
commitment. Such enlistments do
not entail a change in draft status
but the enlistee has the advantage
of going on active duty holding
his reserve rank when the draft
board beckons.
In addition, while in the reserve
the part-time soldier builds up
Dean Discusses
Increase n
U.S. Engineers
Despite a belated awareness that
a pressing need for applied scien-
tists exists in the U.S., there has
been no great increase until re-
cently in the number of students
electing engineering programs, ac-
cording to Assistant Dean Walter
J. Emmons of the College of En-
"I do not believe there has been
excessive pressure on students to
get them to take these courses,"
the dean said.
Dean Emmons sees no harm in
the recently'intensified campaign
to interest students in becoming
scientists and engineers.
To those who feel there has also
been too much emphasis on the
race with Russia for supremacy
in the numbers of technically
trained, Dean Emmons said. "The
vast broadening of the scientific
base on which our civilization rests
has necessitated this vast call-up
of technicians and it must be re-
membered that what we do from a
mliitary angle is also applicable to
civilian commodities; it's not just
a race for arms makers."
"I don't know how you'll interest
people in engineering as a career
unless you publicize it," he con-

longevity which in turns means in-
creased pay at the end of the sec-
ond and fourth year of service,
whether in the reserve or on active
A third advantage is getting re-
serve obligation partially or fully
completed while in school instead
of after active duty when job or
family activities may be more
Under the new selective service
law, all draftees and enlistees,
when discharged from the service,
must participate in a ready reserve
program for three years. Failure
to attend weekly meetings and
summer camp incurs a liability for
call to 45 days active duty each
Still another favorable feature
is that the reserve enlistee may
enlist in the branch of service of
his choice and will be called to
active duty in that branch, even
if his reserve ser'vice is with a
branch other than his choice.
Thus an engineering student
may enlist in the Corps of Engi-
neers and although his-reserve unit
is Infantry, he will serve in the
engineers when on active duty.
This is in contrast to the usual
procedure with draftees, who are
assigned according to the immedi-
ate needs of the Army.
Reserve service consists of at-
tending 48 two-hour meetings each
year plus a two week summer
training camp. Reservists draw a
full days base pay for each of
these weekly meetings and full
pay and allowances, including
travel pay, for summer camp.
Attendance at summer training
camp is highly desirable but not
mandatory. Reservists may be ex-
cused if the unit goes to camp at
a time which interferes with an
individual's schooling .or job com-
mitments. Arrangements can be
made for such personnel to attend
at a times best suited to educa-
tional or occupational schedules.
Concerning the availability of
direct commissions, Major Kren--
itsky stated that only a few are to
be had in the Judge Advocate
General and the. Finance Corps
for personnel highly qualified in
those fields.
Commissions in all other
branches are available through
ROTC or OCS channels only.
Questions concerning the reserve
program can be answered by call-
ing the Army Reserve office on the
second floor of the National Guard
Armory, phone 20566.

We're looking for engineers who want to make the
most of their abilities in stimulating, challenging
careers. The pay is excellent right from the begin-
ning, with regular increases. Extra benefits add
to security. Special on-the-job training prepates
you for bigger and better positions.
You can advance quickly because our' s arapidly
growing business. The number of higan Bell
telephones doubled in the fifteen y before 1935,
doubled again from 1935 to11945, and has doubled
again since 1945.
This remarkable growth is creating unprece-
