U' Psycholog
Guidance, Co
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth and
final article in a series entitled, "What
the University Is Doing for the World
War II veteran."
What is the veterans ability? 'In
what direction is he motivated? What
is his background? Generally, what
kind of a person is he?
Answers to these and numerous
other questions are being sought and
discovered daily by the University
Psychological Clinic which assists the
University in dealing with veterans'
Donahue Director
Formed in 1938 as a unit of the
University Institute for Human Ad-
justment, and at present directed by
Dr. W. T. Donahue, the Psychologi-
cal Clinic does not deal with psychi-
atric problems, but serves veterans in
a counseling and guidance capacity.
Seeking advice and definite know-
ledge regarding their abilities, veter-
ans come to the Vocational Guidance
Service, a division of the Clinic, main-
ly to be aided in finding a suitable
vocational field.
If the veteran so desires, he takes
two-day aptitude and special ability
tests. Regardless of whether or not
Tilley Finishes
Dictionary of
ild Proverbs
"A Dictionary of Proverbs in Eng-
land (1500-1700)", which has been
brought to completion under the ed-
itorship of Prof. Morris P. Tilley, of
the English department, will be pub-
lished in a volume of more than 800
large pages as soon as printing con-
ditions permit.
The dictionary, which will contain
numerous illustrations of the prov-
erbs occurring in English literature
of the sixteenth and seventeenth
centuries, will be thoroughly indexed
in order to make it as easy as pos-
sible for the user to find the proverb
in which he is interested in spite of
variations of wording.
Prof. Tilley, who studied at the
University of Virginia and Leipzig
University, has taught at Michigan
since 1906. The Elizabethan drama
has been one of his principal inter-
ests, and the frequent use of prov-
erbs by Shakespeare and other dram-
atists of the period led him to under-
take a systematic compiling of prov-
erbs of the English renaissance.
Good Grades,
Fun Combine
"You can have fun on the campus
and still make Alpha Lambda Delta,"
is the message of hope which Fay
Lorden, past president of the fresh-
men women's honorary society gives
to prospective coeds.
Any woman who makes a 3.5 aver-
age, that is half A's and half B's, in
any college of the University during
her freshman year is entitled to be-
come a member of Alpha Lambda
Delta. The emblem of the national
honor fraternity, which members
wear, is a gold candle set with four
pearls and one. ruby and a candle-
stick with the letters of the society
Miss Alice Lloyd, Dean of Women,
is the faculty advisor for the group.
The chapter also has two delegates
to the Grand Chapter in which is
vested the supreme legislative power
of the fraternity.

ical Clinic Gives
insel to Veterans
the vet has graduated from high
school or has attended a university,
he is eligible to take the tests.
Test Results Count
If the test results meet the Uni-
versity standards, the veteran may be
recommended for admission to the
University. If the veteran did not
graduate from high school, or if his
high school grades were poor, the
recommendation still stands, Dr.
Donahue pointed out.
Activities of the Clinic are not con-
fined to veterans who are considering
attending the University. Local com-
munity counseling centers refer vet-
erans to the Clinic and they are of-
fered similar aptitude, and ability
"We try to help every veteran for-
mulate and implement a plan for the
future," Dr. Donahue explained.
Under Public Law 16, the Veterans
Administration provides that veter-
ans must have counseling facilities
available. The Clinic has a contract
with the VA providing for the re-
quired counseling service.
Full High School Unnecessary
Proof that a veteran who has not
graduated from high school canbe
successful in college is evidenced by
the vet now attending the University
who had only three years of high
school and has between an A and
B record in his three semesters here.
He took the Clinic's two-day testsrand
was recommended for admission.
Another vet who supported himself
during his high school career and
subsequently received poor grades,
has made good marks on the ability
tests and will probably be recom-
mended for admission.
"Numerous other veterans with
similar high school backgrounds have
been admitted to the University and
probably will continue to be admit-
ted when they show that they can do
college level work," Dr. Donahue ad-
