On Far East at
Dr. Esson M. Gale, director of
the International Center, will give
a course on "Basic Factors in Far
Eastern Culture" during the post
summer session which opens Mon-
day at Michigan State College.
The course will place emphasis
on the geographic, historical and
social backgrounds, and the sin-
itic civilizations of China, Japan
and Korea, according to Dr. Gale.
Recent events and present trends
will be given special considera-
tion, he said.
Since the post session is de-
signed primarily for veterans it is
probable that many of the stu-
dents will have served in the Far
East and have backgrounds of
personal experience and observa-
tion on the subjects delt with, Dr.
In addition to a career in pub-
lic administration in China, where
he served with both the American
and Chinese governments, Dr.
Gale has given courses on the
Far East at the University of Cal-
ifornia, Northwestern University
and the University of Michigan.
His last visit to the Far East was
in 1924 when he traveled with
Gen. Stillwell to western China
to serve as special assistant to
the American ambassador.

At Willow Run
More than 70 graduate and un-
dergradua* engineering students
are helping to pay their way
through school and at the same
time are receiving valuable train-
ing by working at Willow Run in
their spare time.
At the present there are 40
graduate and 30 undergraduate
students working as research per-
sonel in aerodynamics, propulsion,
e 1 e c t r o n i c s, instrumentations,
structures, and wind tunnel oper-
ation. Some students are working
as photographers, draftsmen and
The students work an average
of 60 hours per month on projects
for the United States Army Air
Forces, Signal Corps, and Navy
besides commercial flying.
There are few undergraduates
at the present time because so
many working on the projects
graduated in June. The present
openings will be filled at the be-
ginning of the fall term.
The experience being received
by the students is of a highly
technical nature. They are gath-
ering excellent background train-
ing in research techniques as well
as contributing much to the solu-
tions of the problems at hand.
One of the largest single pro-
jects the students are working on
is the supersonic wind tunnel, now
being calibrated for extensive re-
search in aerodynamics. Because
the tunnel is one of the first of
its kind in the country, the stu-
dent staff has been faced with
many 'unusual problems which
have given them unusual experi-
ences but valuable ones.
