Many Graduate
Students Take
Record Exams
(Continued from Page 1)
for the specific questions which
would invalidate the test results.
The four hour session which will be-
gin at 5:45 p.m., today will cover the
social studies, literature, physical
science and the effectiveness of ex-
pression. These will conclude the
Tests of General Education.
These first eight hours of exam-
inations are of he same nature as
the USAFI General Educational De-
velopment Tests, college level, which
were provided for thousands of ser-
vicemen during the war. They are
intended to measure an individual's
ability to think in the different fields
rather than to recall factual in-
Final Tests Later
At 6:15 p.m., August 6, the final
period of the series will be held, and
advanced tests in special subject
fields will be given at that time.
These examinations are achievement
tests intended to measure the skill

An advanced test in music is at
the present time being developed.
Some of the faculty members of the
School of Music are on the commit-
tee which is writing this booklet.
The Graduate Record Examina-
tions are a requirement for a degree
from the Graduate School at the
University. Students should attempt
to take them during their first sem-
ester of residence in Graduate School
but are not required to do so.
"These tests will exert no influ-
ence on the grades of any individual
in the school," Dr. Donahue said.
"However some departments require
the student to present the re'sults of
the Graduate Record Examinations
before they are granted permission
to embark in graduate study."
Test's Purpose
"The real purpose," she added, "is
to show the student and faculty weak
spots in the students academic pre-
paration. Also, some will find them
valuable in gaining admission to
a school."
"A large number of graduate
schoolsarequire applicants to pro-
vide records of this examination for
admission; therefore, many schools
are attempting to have the test ad-
ministered to graduating seniors. The
University participated in this pro-
gram last May."
"This is a tremendous group to ad-
minister a test to," Dr. Donahue de-
clared, adding that it is certainly
one of the largest single groups to be
tested at one time in the country.
"It requires the work of 25 proctors
besides the two examiners, Mr. Clark
Tibbitts (Director of the Institute for
Human Adjustment) and myself."

Short Business
Course Will Be
Offered to Vets
Four Month Program
To Be Given in Detroit
A :.hort course in business man-
agement designed particularly. for.
the benefit of veterans planning to
go into business for themselves will
be held at the University Extension
Center in Detroit this fall.
The four months course, opening
at the Rackham Educational Memor-
ial Building on September 21, will

O11e!ed Last April
Inaugurated at the University
last fall in conjunction with the
School of Business Administration,
the course was first offered in Detroit
in April and will be continued there
exclusively this fall.
"This special course," Prof. Charles
L. Jamison of the business adiin-
istration school said, "is the first of
its kind in the country, and as such
has aroused inquiries rom Seattle
to Boston." Prof. Jamison has re-
ceived many letters and telegrams
not only from veterans interested in
taking the course, but from other
colleges and universities which are
interested in setting up similar pro-
grams of their own.
Necessary Qualifications
The prime considerations for ac-
ceptance in the course are a suflicient
business experience to receive bene-
fit from the instruction and a truly
serious intention of actually opening
up a small business of one's own.
In the past many interested vet-
erans have had to be refused ad-
mittance to the program because of
crowded facilities and the lack of
teaching personnel.

FBI Action on
Mob Lynching
WASHINGTON, July 30--(/P)-At-
torney General Clark announced to-
day that President Truman has ex-
pressed "horror" at the lynchings of
four negroes near Monroe, Ga., and
directed the Justice Department to
investigate "with all its resources."
The Federal inquiry --which Clark
said is being carried on "in the tra-
dition of the FBI" - has two aims:
1. To see whether the mob mem-
bers can be arrested and prosecuted
under any Federal statute.
2. To assist Georgia authorities in
identifying the members of the mob
and prosecuting them under state
laws. Clark announced that "the
entire record of our investigation will
be made available to the Governor of
Georgia, if necessary, for proper ac-
tion of Georgia civil authorities."
He expressed "hope for an early
solution" of what he called "these
shocking murders" and called upon
"all our citizens to repudiate mob
Referring to the 20-odd white men
who shot the two Negro farm work-
ers, one a veteran, and their wives,
last Thursday, Clark said in a state-
.'I call upon all our citizens to re-
pudiate mob rule and to assist the
authorities to bring these criminals
to justice."
Later Clark said in a second state-
ment that he had talked with Mr.
Truman about the case and that the
President "has expressed to me his
horror at the crime and his sympathy
for the families of the victims."
