Of University Faculty
Teaching

Approximately 100 University faculty members began instructing
trainees in the Army Reserve
Training Program here with the beginning of the new quarter Monday, Dean Leo M. Chamberlain has
announced.
Of these one hundred, approximately 25 are on the stall of the engineering college, almost the entire
staff of which is engaged in teaching the trainees. Chamberlain said.

The need for instructors in technical subjects has necessitated that
some faculty members teach courses
in which they have been trained,
though outside their major fields,
the Dean stated.
Among those who are teaching
subjects foreign to their regular
classes are: Dean T. T. Jones, ancient languages, mathematics; Dr.
B. B. Mclnteer, botany, geography;
Dr. D. V. Hegeman, German, history; Dr. C. M. Knapp, history, geography; Ab Kirwan, football coach,
history; Victor R. Portmann, Jour-
