lans Outlined by Gustawson
It is the duty of every citizen
to make his maximum contribu
tion to the welfare of the United
States, Chancellor R. C. Gustav
son said Thursday.
Addressing a convocation of
University men in the Coliseum,
Chancellor Gustavson said that in
"ordinary times," citizens are
able to make their contributions
in a field of their own choice.
"These are not ordinary times,"
Chancellor Gustavson said. "We
are now in a period of national
emergency darkened by the
clouds of war. Under this cir
cumstance, citizens, and more
particularly 'those of us who are
students in the University, do not
have the opportunity to always
select the contribution to the na- during the World war II, alloca-
tional welfare which we wish to
Contributions To Government
"This is as it should be, and is
the essence of democracy. As a
consequence, your government is
setting up methods whereby some
of you will be able to make im
mediate contribution in the work
of your choice."
The Chancellor urged Univer
sity men to apply at their local
draft boards for the right to take
qualification tests. This, he said,
is simply assisting our govern
ment through local draft boards,
to help determine how our man
power problems should be solved
in the current emergency.
The Chancellor pointed out that

Victory Through Know-How
"We cannot hope to match the
enemy man for man on the field
of battle. Our victory will come
through our technological know
how," Chancellor Gustavson said.
"This is why it is essential that
young men should be trained now
for the big job ahead."
"Please remember," the Chan
cellor said, "that it is your gov
ernment's wishes, and your draft
board's wishes, to make the wis
est use of our manpower not only
for today, but for tomorrow and
the next day. It is my hope that
you will be good citizens and
co-operate fully in this endeavor,"
Chancellor Gustavson outlined
the following steps involved in
taking the Selective Service test
for University men.
The test will be given May 26,
June 16, and June 30.
