Civilian, Army
Morale Alike,
Asserts Trow
Declares Schools In Need
Of Teachers Who Have
Civilian morale is more like mili-
tary morale than most people sup-
pose, declared Prof. William Clark
Trow, of the educational psychology
department, in the final education
series lecture yesterday at University
High School.
He said that both civilian and mili-
tary morale have the same objective
-winning the war and at the same
time preserving democratic values,
that both call for intelligent leader-
ship and that both demand individu-
ally effective group members.
Prof. Trow compared morale in
schools to the concept of group mo-
tivation. This depends, he pointed
out, on administrators and teachers
who, as leaders, must know what to
do and also be able to do it. There
areimorale saboteurs who are trai-
tors, he said, and others who are too
stupid to realize that~ the opinions
they are expressing were formulated
in Germany.
Effective group membership, he
continued, calls for health and
physical education programs and
organized plans for pupil personnel,
in which opportunities for varied ac-
tivities make possible participation
at varied ability levels, in which
frustrations are tempered by suc-
cesses and in which the better ways
of meeting difficulties are learned
and practiced.

Ho Soit
Hears .lecture
By Blakeman
Speaking before Tau Beta Pi, en-
gineering honor society, at the Union
Tuesday night, Dr. Edward W. Blake-
man, University counselor in Relig-
ious Education emphasized the need
for utilizing the work of technical
experts in future social reconstruc-
The banquet, which was for the
ratification of the election of eight-
een new members to the honor so-
ciety, was told by Dr. Blakeman that
"transitions are afoot ..." in econ-
omics, religion, labor relations, cul-
ture, and social planning.
"Unless the laboratory scientist,
the field engineer, and otherntech-
nicians can be brought into the
active work of social reconstruction,"
the speaker said, "the leaders in re-
ligion, social science, and politics
will face the future in vain . ."
Pointing out the increase in pro-
duction and technical skills attained
by the modern Russian state, Dr.
Blakeman contrasted the American
situation. The Soviet leaders, he
said, "have found a flexible consumer
world needing technical production.
We have the latter but a broken,
divided consuming class."
Advocating a three-fold plan for
the future, the counselor told his
audience that we need to supplant
our emotional provincialism with a
scientific approach to social affairs,
discard laissez faire business policy
for social planning, and adopt the
discoveries of science for the physi-
cal welfare of the people as part of
"the civic religion of democracy."

Michigan's Sailing
Club Takes Fifth
At New London
Competing against crews from 14,
of the nation's leading schools, Mich-
igan's Sailing Club took fifth place
last Saturday in a meet at New Lon-
dan, Conn.
Called the 'Danmark Trophy
Race,' the event was sponsored by
Capt. Hansen of the Danmark, a
Danish Naval training ship, with
only international dinghies eligible
for competition. The Thames River
was used as a course.
Jerry Powell captained the Mich-
igan team, which consisted of Nan-
cy Griffin, Dick Johnston and Al
Raymond. The trophy ways taken by
Harvard, followed by Dartmouth, the
Coast Guard, Yale and Michigan.
Several of the ships suffered dam-
ages, including three broken masts,
several sinkings, and several tippings.
The next competiton for the club
will be against Grosse Point this Sat-

dents Joseph Bursley will explain the
structure of the social fraternities oh
campus and will advise all rushees
on what to look for in a fraternity
and how to act during the rush
Contrary to rumors that have cir-
culated widely during the past few
weeks, there will be no deferred
rushing program such as has been
adopted by the Panhellenic Council,
although: it is possible that certain
days will- be set aside as "silence"
periods, giving both rushees and}fra-
ternity men a chance to rest from
the turmoil of a concentrated rush
On the day that rushing ends, all
rushees will hand to the Dean's sec-
retary a preferential; list, on which
they will indicate the house or houses
of their choice. Fraternities will hand
in similar lists, and when a compari-
son has been made, invitations will
be sent to registered men on Mon-
day, October 19.
During the interval extending from
the last day of rushing to the Mon-
day of pledging, all contact will
cease, and no house will be allowed
to approach any unaffiliated man.
Severe penalties will be imposed for
any infractions of this regulation.
All rushing this year is being han-
dled by a special IFC committee un-
der the direction of John Zimmer-
man, Chi Psi, and consisting of Bert
Weiss, Pi Lambda Phi, Ross Clark,
Acacia, Herb Howerth, Lambda Chi
Alpha, and John Wiess, Sigma Phi.
Wingate yesterday urged all houses
to thoroughly familiarize themselves
with all IFC regulations, citing the
fact that three houses received heavy
fines this week for violating the rules
dealing with initiation.
