With headquarters at the Of-
fice of Academic Counselors in
Mason Hall, this welcoming group
is under the direction of Prof. Ar-
thur Van Duren. The counselors
are always anxious to discuss any
problems which arise in the! stu-
dent's academic life, including
student-faculty relations, study
habits, employment, health and

their arrival at the University.
Special counseling services are
provided the large number of vet-
erans at the Veterans Services
Bureau in the Rackham Building.
The literary college will follow
its traditional policy regarding
freshman students again this year.
All must take work in physical
education for which no credit is
granted, and in addition must at-
tend a series of six hygiene lec-
eures and' demonstrations. A
course in English composition

semester to fulfill the English re-
quirement for graduation. Stu-
dents may select 12 other credit
hours of classes each semester in
addition to these basic require-
Largely due to the greatly in-
creased number of admissions
during the last few years, aca-
demic standards have been tight-
ened. During their first semester
in attendance non-veteran stu-
dents must maintain at least a C
average. Veterans are permitted
an additional session in which to
maintain this minimum standard.
The following system of grad-
ing is used by the University:
A--excellent; 4 honor points per
hour of credit.
B-good; 3 honor points per
hour of credit.
C-fair; 2 honor points per
hour of credit.
D-deficient, passed; 1 honor
E-not passed no honor points.
X-absent from examination.
A minimum of 120 hours credit
with at least a two-point (C) av-
erage is required for the bachelor
Although academic standards
are somewhat higher, attendance
requirements are more lenient
than in past years. Students are
expected to attend classes regu-
larly. Absences will be considered
on an individual basis by the in-
structor concerned and action will
be taken where absence is endan-
gering satisfactory academic

The majority of the courses in
the literary college meet in An-
gell Hall, facing State Street. The
Romance Languages building
houses most of the romance lan-
guage classes. Courses in zoology
and botany are held in the Nat-
ural Science Building, while those
in chemistry assemble in the
Chemistry Building. Classes in
other departments meet in Mason
Hall, Haven Hall and University
The General Library, strategi-
cally situated in the center of
campus, puts over 1,200,000 books
at the services of University stu-
Less formally known as the
"Libe," the library is the haven for
those who wish to keep their
grades in the upper brackets. The
first floor study hall contains
books required for specified
courses. Professors list the books
on a supplementary reading list.
It is then posted on the study hall
bulletin board and the books in
the list can be obtainedat the
desk. The first floor study hall
also keeps a file of old examina-
Main Reading Room
The main reading room on the
second floor provides reference
books ranging from English-Ger-
man dictionaries to the Encyclo-
paedia Britannica. The numerous
reference books kept here makes
the second floor study hall an ab-
solute "must" for the students
writing term papers. It also pro-
vides a quieter atmosphere for
The key to all the books on
campus, the card catalog is also
located on the second floor of the
libe. The alphabetically arranged
catalog contains information
needed about the location of
books. The call numbers are writ-
ten out on slips provided for that
purpose and presented at the cir-
culation desk. The librarians will
bring up the book from the stacks
upon presentation of the call slip
and identification card.
Current books, for the extra cur-
ricular reader, can be obtained in
the same locality. The library
maintains an up-to-date book list
of current and popular reading for
the information of the student
who wants to keep up with the
best seller books. These books can
also be taken out from the libe
for a specified amount of time.
Term Paper Data
The periodical reading room, on
the same floor, provides invalu-
able information ranging from
home town news to prospective
term paper data. It contains about
1,500 current periodicals and
newspapers from large cities
throughout the country. Informa-
tion on magazine articles can be
found in the Readers Guide placed
on the desks. Upon presentation
of call slips and identification
cards, the magazine is brought up
from the stacks.
Collateral reading books for
English, history and political sci-
ence courses are found on reserve
in the Angell Hall Study Hall lo-
cated at the north end of Angell
Hall. These books are to be read
only in the study hall and circu-
late only for overnight and week-
end use at home.
Specialized school departmental
libraries are located all over cam-
pus. The medical reading room,
on the second floor of the General
Library, has books relating to the
fields of medicine and nursing.
The natural science library is on
the second floor of the Natural
Science Building, the economics
and mathematics library on the
third floor of Angell Hall, the Ed-
ucation school library at Univer-
sity High School, the engineering
school library on the second floor
of West Engineering and the Law

PROPOSED MATERNITY HOSPITAL-Pictured is the plans for
the proposed new Maternity Hospital. The old one was condemned
last year as being a "fire-trap." Excavations for the new building
were started in June of this year, and the building, located east
of the main hospital, may be ready for occupation in 1950.

Horse and Buggy
It is difficult for a doctor to
study the most modern techniques
of medicine and then go back to
the horse-and-buggy days, Dean
To alleviate the situation, the
University has designed a course
for training general practitioners,
and great decentralization of pub-
lic hospitals in the State is
planned, so that doctors may
be distributed more equitably
throughout the State.
The Medical School may be able
to expand its teaching program if
the plan for a Medical Center at
the University is realized, bqt the
project may not be started for sev-
eral years yet.
Excavations for the new Mater-
nity Hospital were started June 9
of this year, and the building,
which is located east of the main
hospital, may be ready for occu-
pancy in January 1950.
A 500-bed Veterans Hospital has
been approved by the President.
No exact location has been an-
nounced yet, but the $10 million
structure will probably be erected
just across the Huron River near
Geddes Road, 11/4 miles from the
University Hospital. It is hoped
that the Veterans Hospital, which
will be completely staffed by
members of the University, under
the direction of a,VA administra-
tor, will become operative in 2 to
