Methods of Teaching EnglishI

Little Choice Possible
For Student Workers
"It is going to be increasingly dif-
ficult for the student earning her ex-
penses to find the job that she wants
and for which she is particularly
suited," Mrs. Mary C. Bromage, As-
sistant Dean of Women, advised yes-
The employment situation for stu-
dents has changed almost overnight,
she pointed out, and credited the
change in part to the closing of Wil-
low Run and the subsequent flooding
of the local labor market by full-
time employes.
Few Jobs Available
"In the spring there were more
jobs than could be filled and now
there are scarcely enough to allow
the student to get exactly the type of
work for which she is fitted," Mrs.
Bromage explained.
Last year the Dean's office was able
to find for students part-time em-
ployment that was related to their
future occupation. Those who spoke
a foreign language could obtain posi-
tions in which they used that abil-
Board Jobs Advised
"This summer the League and hos-
pital have employed a great number
of student workers, and for the fall
students are advised to take room
and board jobs," Mrs. Bromage said.
"Many families will open their rooms,
not for rent, but for work by students
as members of the family."
She pointed out that local employ-
ers desiring student help would ob-
tain best results in obtaining experi-
enced workers by calling the office of
the Dean of Women.

Described in l
Methods developed and tested by
four years of teaching English to
Latin Americans at the English
Language Institute, of which he is di-
rector, are described by Prof. Charles
C. Fries of the English department
in his book "Teaching and Learning
English as a Foreign Language,"
published by the University of Michi-
gan Press, and on sale at bookstores.
The method advocated in the book
is the "oral . approach," which the
author describes as differing from the
direct method in several respects, in-
cludingtthe postponement ofhread-
ing until the structure of the new
language is firmly grasped and the
Union Petitions
Are Due Friday
Candidates for positions on the
Union Board of Directors must sub-
wit petitions to the Men's Judiciary
Council by noon EWT (11 a. m.
CWT) Friday in order to be listed on
the ballots at the election to be held
Friday, July 27.
Three vacancies are to be filled
with one person from L. S. & A., one
from the school of engineering, and
one from the combined schools.
Both men and women may vote
in the election the same day for a
foreign university to be adopted, but
only men may vote for the Union
officers. The adoption of a foreign
university is being sponsored by the
Student Organization for Interna-
tional Cooperation, and the student
body may choose from four institu-
tions to be named on the ballot.
Petitions for Union offices may be
signed only by students in the re-
spective schools, and a person may
sign only one petition. Voting, like-
wise must be done within the school.
Thus, an engineering student may
not vote for an L. S. & A. candidate.
In order to be interviewed, each
person must present an eligibility
card for the summer term. Candi-
dates will be notified as to time and
place of interview.

Fries' New Book'
use of the student's native language
to a limited extent in order to give
necessary explanations. Textbooks
especially developed for use with the
method are employed, but all ma-
terial is taught orally first, the stu-
dents learning each new principle by
listening to native speakers of Eng-
lish before reading the section of
the book dealing with the same sub-
Municipal Leaguae

vice installation at Ferndale, Alpena,

Addition of these three cities will

municipalities in which the League

service system.

* You've seen them in the movies
and magazines and newspapers-
those portable flame throwers our
5ighting men use to burn the Japs
out of their caves and pillboxes.
It takes courage as well as
chemicals to do that job. It also
takes tin!
And that's where you come in!
For you can help supply the pre-
cious tin needed to make those
flame throwers!
How? By saving all your used
tin cans and preparing them for

salvage -because there's enough
pure tin in just 23 ordinary tin
cans to make a portable flame
The reason America is short on
tin is because the Japs have cut
off most of our regular supply.
But they can't cut off our "home
supply"-because that's coming
from every loyal American home
in the land-coming from tin cans
which you can help furnish.
Think of that the next time
you're about to throw a can away
Then, instead -

Dean Wells I. Bennett of the Col-
lege of Architecture and Desigr will

The Association is meeting to dis-
cuss problems in architectural edu-
cation and to meet with the National
Architectural Accrediting Board.
Dean Bennett is past president of
the organization.

Remember... TIN is a "precious metal" that goes to war in
hundreds of ways. TIN helps make protective containers
for blood plasma, medicines, foods. TIN goes into every

fights, or that feeds, heals, or saves our men-needs TIN!
And America's only "tin mines" are in your kitchens!
