Key Veterans'
Counsel Agency
Educators Meet To
Plan Training Board
Dr. George A. Carrothers, director
of the University's Bureau of Cooper-
ation with Educational Institutions,
in a meeting at Lansing yesterday,
went on record favoring a centralized
agency to supervise educational and
occupational counseling, it was learn-
ed from Association Press dispatches
from Lansing.
Carrothers was among educators,
representing all Michigan's 19 ac-
credited colleges and universities, to
propose the supervisory agency over
counseling to be offered returning
war veterans by the colleges.
Dean Russell A. Stevenson, of the
business administration school, was
named chairman of one of the six
committees proposed by the meeting,
which will visit unaccredited schools
desiring approval as teaching centers
for veterans in special fields. Dean
Stevenson will head the committee
for business practice courses.
Dr. Eugene B. Elliott, State Super-
intendent of Public Instruction, said
the educators recommended the State
Office of Veterans Affairs employ a
"high class" counselor who might
assist them in training individual
institutional counselors. The col-
leges, he said, probably would not
refer many individual cases to the
state for specialized counseling.
The conference was called by Gov.
Kelly to coordinate college counsel-
ing programs for veterans and to
determine whether a central state
agency was desired.
The conferees named an executive
committee including Elliott, Dr. Car-
rothers, Fr. Albert J. Poetker, execu-
tive dean of the University of Detroit,
and Robert S. Linton, registrar of
Michigan State College.

ing School for Public Service, Inc.
The Fellowship provides for $100 a
month, plus tuition and fees for

demic work in the School of Public
Affairs and Social Work of Wayne

Women's War
Council Plans
Summer Rally
'Free Press' Editor
Will Speak Monday
The Women's War Council urges
all women on campus to attend the
Council's summer rally at 7:30 p. m.
Monday in the Rackham auditorium,
Pat Coulter, '45, War Council presi-
dent, said.
The program will feature a talk by
Miss Helen Bower, book and art edit-
or of the Detroit Free Press, who will
speak on women's opportunities in
the post-war world. Also on the
schedule is a skit by the War Coun-
cil which will portray on a "what
would happen if" theme a campus
devoid of coed activity.
Since this will be the only coed
gathering of this type during the
summer term, Miss Coulter urges all
women to attend. The meeting, in
addition to sponsoring a well-known
and humorous speaker, will act as a
starting-point for summer extra-
curricular activities, including stamp
sales, surgical dressings, hospital vol-
unteer work, USO, WAA, and other
volunteer projects. Two new activi-
ties are under consideration, and may
possibly be announced at the rally,
according to Miss Coulter.
