CoSlege Graduates
One out of every seven Amer

000 of them—are “functionally"
illiterate, according to the 1910
U.S. census — more than three
times the number of college grad
The definition of “functional"
comes from army standards which
require the equivalent of a fourth
grade education and the ability to
read a daily newspaper for the
admission of selectees. By this
definition, the illiterates are bar
red from 'the army/ have a re
stricted usefulness in war indus
tries and cannot fulfill their du
ties as citizens.
The ' largest number of illiter
ates come from states with the
greatest population: New York,
with more than 1,000,000; Penn
sylvania with 696,000; Texas with
612,000; and Illinois with 462,000.
By races, the breakdown is 7,
300,000 white, 2,700,000 Negroes,
and 100,000 all others. Of the

Bandages made at the Univer

the quotas from each Red Cross

Special orders from the army

to a certain ship. Because the
orders are secret no one knows
their exact destination. However,
through knowledge of what has
been done overseas, most of the
bandages have gone to Alaska,
Africa, and the south seas.
The dressings are used as
sponges during emergency oper

hospitals or in the field hospitals.
Bronson Plays
'Different' Role
“The Whole Town’s Talking,”
Guild Hall theatre production,
opens shortly, featuring Jim Bron
son, senior, in the leading role of
Chester Binney.
This part is entirely different
from other roles Bronson has had.
As a freshman he played an Ital
ian in “Idiot's Delight” and in his
junior year he had the part of the
hard-headed Carlson in "Of Thee
I Sing” and that of Mongo in
“Wingless Victory.”
Slapstick Farce
In “Watch on the Rhine,” this
year’s first play by the Guild Hall
theater, Jim was a sophisticated
business man.
The coming slapstick farce
shows him as a man who can’t
understand why he isn’t appealing
to women, because he was “such
a pretty baby.”
“Even his friends won’t recog
nize the Jim they know swinging
from a chandelier and shouting,
‘Even a worm screams when he’s
stepped on’,’’ states Mrs. Ottilie
Seybolt, director.
Designs Too
Bronson handled the pier and
field scenes in the current play,
"The Eve of St. Mark,” and is
the third member of the Guild Hall
theater to be interested both in
acting and stage design. First to
have one of their scenes used dur
ing their senior year was Charles
Jackson, '40. Last year Dick Tur
ner, ’42, handled one.
They are tied in 25-bandage pack
ages so that they may be put into
immediate use.
To fill the needs of all the bat
tle-fronts and home hospitals
hundreds of thousands of band
ages must be made every month,
and the people at home are tho
only ones to do it.

“There must be something special about

That bottle and the familiar trade-mark
Coca-Cola remind them of home. The

bring a refreshing moment on the sunny
side of things. Enjoy it yourself."
