Thousands Follow Ortiz' Body In Funeral Procession

Word has arrived recently from the
boys of Michigan's Wolverine Squad-
ron of the Naval Air Corps, stationed
at Iowa City for preliminary train-
Robert B. Stirling, '44, former
member of the Daily staff who joined
the squadron in the spring, writes
with enthusiasm about the training.
"Now that I have seen it. I can re-
commend it fully, and with no re-
serve," says Cadet Stirling.
The Wolverine Squadron was
formed early in the year when *En-
sign "Whitey" Frauman, former Var-
sity end, held an organizational din-
ner here. About 17 students joined
then, with others signed up to join
in the near future. Also at Iowa City
is Davy Nelson, fleet-footed Michi-
gan back.

Among the many student and
former students of the University
who have left to join the armed
forces recently, is Dr. Joseph H. Alli.
A -graduate of the School of Public
Health, Dr. Alli has been called to
military service as a first lieutenant
in the Sanitary Corps. He has worked
as a bacteriologist at the Health
Service for the past two years.

art Japinga, Jr. and Robert A. Straub

'U' To Offer
Course RHe
A course in camouflage of civilian
installations of military significance
will probably be offered next fall by
the department of landscape archi-
tecture, Prof. Harlow 0. Whittemore,
chairman of the department, an-
nounced recently.
Prof. Whittemore is now preparing
the course after spending two weeks
at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, where
special instruction in camouflage was
given by U. S. Army Engineers.
Although a laboratory course with
extensive use of model construction,
actual physical construction and
aerial observation would be preferred
by the department, Prof. Whittemore
stated that the many difficulties in-
volved in procurement of such facil-
ities make a straight lecture course
more probable. Such lectures can
be given with specialists in the field
of camouflage as instructors.
It was stressed that the course
would not be one in the study of mil-
itary camouflage techniques, because
of the necessities of military secre-y.
However, factories and civilian air-
ports outside the jurisdiction of the
Army need camouflage work such as
will be presented by the new course.
Branches of special camouflage
study are aerial photography, prac-
tical aspects of color, form and pat-
terns and the practical aspects of
general psychology of camouflage.
Three-Year Mata Hari
Is Foiled By Censor
CINCINNATI, July 23 ()P)- A
little Cincinnati lass of three, whose
daddy is an Army captain in Pan-
ama, sent him what she claimed was
a picture of a cow-roughly sketched,
indeed, but her very own ...
The mailman called at her home
soon afterward-with a very polite
note from an Army censor.
"It is against military regulations,"
it read, "to mail outside continental
limits of the United States, drawings
of public buildings."

to discuss the emergency housing
facilities of the county.

tered. The names and addresses of
houses where rooms will be available
throughout Washtena* County in an
emergency may be obtained from
the township CDVO chairman.
For the county's protective serv-
icec, the sheriff's department is list-

"Out of the water into the frying pan" can
almost be applied to Allenel lake trout. Regular
delivery from Alpena brings the fish to the
