This is the first time a workshop of this kind has been offered in these departments. The basic purpose of the workshop is to give an opportunity for* work on. individual problems, with special reference to students' own needs and local situations. Schedules will be made co- operately; arrangements will be made for conferences; and lectures trips, and group activities will be arranged as facilities .and desires of the group merit. The course will include Agriculture 209, Conservation and Forestry; and Biology 310, Ornithology. Both courses are to be integrated as a workshop course, under the direction of Miss Irene F. Jorae, head department of biology and Mr. George R. Wheeler, head department iof agriculture. i The war has stripped us of the cream of our iron, copper, oil and wood to say nothing of the soil fertility. Educational leaders are aware of the situation regarding natural resources, and from all parts of the nation come evidences of efforts being put forth to train students for the solution of problems arising in.connection with these resources. It is hoped that the workshop will help answer some of these problems. 1&** Capers Portray Vaudeville Days in Campus Show Vaudeville was revived at Central last night when the band club presented the "Campus Capers" show in Warriner , hall jauditorium.

" Additional Term Starting July 1 Number and Distribution of Trainees Will be Released Later ■'.'■■ i Plans for another term at Central Michigan college for the nearly two- year old Navy V-12-unit were announced to President Charles L. Anspach and Lt. M, R.' Kelso, commanding officer of the local unit, Saturday, March 31, in a letter from Rear Admiral L. Ef. Denfield, as-< sistant chief of naval personnel in Washington, D. C. This announcement came as contradiction of a preious statement from the Navy saying that all V-12's would be transferred to NROTC units, July 1, 1945. "Recent develop- me'nts.in Navy training have made it impracticable to cbmmi'ssion any new NROTC units on July 1, 1945 as contemplated ini Navy V-12 bulletin No. 2^8, dated February 15, 1945," the letter announced and continued by" saying that all "existing V-12 units are planned to be continued for the term beginning July 1, 1945. To Continue Transition In general, according to Denfelid's letter, the Navy will continue its plan for transition of the V-12 program to the expanded NROTC program in accordance with previous announcements, but not by July 1. The time at which any student begins courses in Naval science and tactics will not be affected, he said, because such courses will begin at all units which will have NROTC caridi*- dates. "The number and distribution of officer candidates to be included in the training program for the July 1, 1945 term, cannot yet be determined," the Rear admiral stated. "As a consequence, while the V-12 unit will remain at your institution for' that term, it is impossible-to specify, at this time the quota of trainees to be on board and the facilities required for housing and messing. It is expected that information on these matters will be forwarded to you not later than April 30, 1945." (ACP) Intercollegiate sports will be resumed at Iowa. State Teachers college this fall. Spanish Pupils Teaching English Jacquelene Quick, Mt. Morris freshman, Jean Cramer, Saginaw freshman, and Marian Kenaga, Cadillac sophomore, are teaching English to Spanish-speaking children in the kindergarten at the Kinney school.

Jacquelene Quick and Marian Kenaga are second-semester Spanish students, and Jean Cramer is third* seinester, The girls volunteered because they are interested in this work.
