Social Workers Have Important
Place in Post-War Counrities

"Social workers will inevitably play
a large part in psychiatric and medi-
cal social work after the war," Prof.
Arthur E. Wood, head of the sociol-
ogy department predicted.
During the war, there is obviously
a great demand for social workers,
he said. The Red Cross, war service
agencies and war employment agen-
cies, hospitals, community organiza-
tions are all vastly in need of trained
social workers.
"Butnafter the war, it will be even
more necessary that there be men
and women who understand people

color motion picture, "Post-War
Alaska".
The lecture series will be conclud-

present an illustrated lecture en-
titled "Seething India". Fisher had
extensive theatre properties in Mal-
aya for fifteen years and has aprac-
tical knowledge of the Far East.

to work in community reorganiza-
tion, cohvalescent hospitals, employ-
Mnent agencies and related fields,"
Prof. Wood emphasized.-
A social worker should have a
solid foundation in the social sci-
ences from his first year in college,
he said. As a freshman and soph'o-
more, the student should take begin-
ning courses in political science, so-
These form a basis for advanced
courses in the junior and senior
years.
ciology, economics and psychology.
It is wise for a social science major
to contemplate taking at least one
year of graduate work, although
many agencies are accepting stu-
dents who have earned their B.S.
only because of 'the war emergency.
The Institute of Public and Social
Administration in Detroit offers a
two years' program in the field of
social work in preparation for the
master's degree.

Beta, Cli Psi Were
First Fraternities
In 1845 Beta Theta Phi and Chi
Psi became the firstfraternities to

log chapter house in the woods east
of the campus was built by Chi Psi

ter house at any college.
