Aviation career sought by GIs Aviation is far-and-away the leading occupation preference of service men who plan to go to work immediately after discharge, according to a survey by the Aeronautical Training society received today by SCs College of Aeronautics. A job in some phase of aviation is .the hope of 31 per cent of service men questioned in four large cities adjacent to separation centers. Next in line was the legal profession. with 7 per cent. More than one-third of the men, 38 per cent, plan to take further educational training under the GI “bill of rights,” tlie survey indicated. Fifty-five per cent believe veterans’ legislation would make it possible for them to get the kind of training they want for future jobs, but 24 per cent are either ineligible or believe they need no further training for the jobs they are after. Of those who plan aviation careers, 29 per cent look to aeronautical engineering. 22 per cent as- ! en by 015 Ralph Tyler Flewelll,ng’ Wilbur Long, Herbert L.

Dr. Ghyka will compare philosophic systems or ideologies based on the necessity or fatality of strife and struggle to systems having harmony as their foundation or purpose. He will establish a parallel between the Pythagorean and Platonic ideal of harmony and the similar attitude of the Buddhist-Dhyan school. Dr. Ghyka declared that exchange between eastern and western metaphysis can be fruitful. “I will make application to the two world wars the Buddist concept of causality or Karmic law, where free-will can act on the causal chain by the mental attitude of man when ‘eating the Karmic fruit,’ ” he said, Dr. Ghyka had a varied career as a mathematician, diplomat, and naval attache before, coming to SC last November. He obtained his Ll.D. from Brussels university and his Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree from the High School of Electricity in Paris. Dr. Ghyka attended the French naval academy and eventually became a midshipman in the French navy. His knowledge of naval affairs was of use to him in 1917 and 1918 when the Rumanian government delegated him to London to serve as assistant naval attache. His career as a Rumanian diplomat included tours of duty as counselor to the Rumanian legation in Rome. Madrid, Warsaw, and Paris. Later he became Rumanian minister to Stockholm, and until 1940 he served afc assistant minister in London. . Dr. Ghyka has been decorated by several European countries. From the government of Great Britain he has the Knight Commander of Royal Victorian order. The French government decorated him with the Officer Legion d’-Honneur and he has the Grand Cross Polar Star from Sweden.

An all-U Christmas program featuring singing, drama, topics, ends tomorrow dancing, and tableaux will be presented at two assemblies Thursday.

The program will run-a little short of an hour, but promises to be the biggest of the season.” The madrigal singers, directed by ! Dr. Max T. Krone, will add to the ; Christmas spirit with "Wassail," “Yule Log Song,” “Fire Dance Music,” and other numbers accompanied by the university orchestra. Nip s suicide forces change TOKYO, Dec. 16 (U.E) — Gen. Douglas MacArthur may change the whole system of rounding up Japanese war crimes defendants as the result of Prince Fumimaro Kon-oye’s suicide a few hours before he was due to surender, it was understood today. Upset because another suspect— the most prominent in the country in point rank—had slipped through the net by taking his own life, army authorities are considering whether to arrest defendants at once instead of giving them a period of grace in which to arrange their affairs. Konoye was named as a war criminal Dec. 6, and was to have reported at Sugamo prison today to await trial. It was learned that Konoye, before he poisoned himself early this morning, dictated a farewell statement to his second son, Michitake. saying that he had made many mistakes as premier and felt a great responsibility to the nation. But he insisted that he worked for Japan-ese-American friendship and asserted: “The thought I must be treated as a war criminal is unbearable.” It was most regrettable, Konoye said, that the United States had named him as a war criminal. Army investigators learned that in the days before his suicide, Konoye had read Oscar Wilde’s tragic “De Profundis” and had underlined in red pencil certain quotations. Succession hearings to start WASHINGTON.

I have asked repeatedly for hearings.” 'Blithe Spirit' planned as next Troy production “Blithe Spirit,” comedy of the supernatural, versatile playwright and composer Noel Coward's latest play, will be the next production of the SC drama department. This was announced today by department head William C. de Mille. “Although there are only seven parts in the play,” Mr. De Mille said, “each one is very important, and must be played with great artistry.” There are a great many technical difficulties in the play which offer much opportunity for the ingenuity of the technical staff. Candidates for parts will be interviewed by Mr. De Mille this afternoon between 1:30 and 4:30, and tomorrow between 3 and 4:30 ] p.m. in the Green Room, 3 Old College basement. At this time, Mr. De Mille will make appointments for individual tests. Any student who wishes to participate may apply. It is not restricted to drama students. U.S. espionage system planned WASHINGTON. Dec. 16 OLE) — The state department has about completed its master plan to blanket the world with a super intelligence system, it was disclosed tonight. The United States never has had such a system in peacetime. Lack of one permitted Japan to plot world conquest virtually undetected and President Truman moved soon after he took office to correct the situation. The plan is intended to strengthen this country's foreign policy and to provide sources of Information for policy makers. It will be presented for presidential approval within a week or 10 days. The plan calls for creation of a "national intelligence authority.” The top layer would be made up of the secretaries of state, war and navy, with Secretary of State James F. Byrnes as chairman. In security matters, they would be joined by heads of the treasury and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In the past, even during wartime, the nation’s intelligence units have been piecemeal. Military and diplomatic espionage arms have operated independently and sometimes at cross purposes. Principal aim of the new program is to coordinate them through the state department. This would mean a cohesive espionage service throughout the world. Intelligence agents will be directed to keep a check on everything in foreign countries from atomic energy development to the weather. The proposed system would be an outgrowth of the office of strategic services which is credited with giving the United States excellent intelligence protection during the war. On Sept. 20, the president abolished OSS. Trovets shift date of forum Local authority plans residence explanation, discussion of scheduled aid to veterans Speaker at the Trovet forum on housing problems will be Frank Wilkinson, informational assistant to the executive director of the city housing auhtority for Los Angeles. The meeting date has been changed to Wednesday at noon in the Touchstone theater. If the theater becomes filled the forum will move to Bovard auditorium. -- Riley to leave Troy tomorrow for army duties Ex-prisoner prepares evacuation of campus as final appeals fail Mr. Wilkinson will explain the present housing situation in southern California and will discuss housing on a national scale, how soon relief can be expected, and the plans being made to aid veterans who are unable to take advantage of schooling under the G.L bill of rights because of housing difficulties. At the close of his speech Mr. Wilkinson will answer questions concerning housing problems now- besetting this area. The forum is part of Troy’s own veteran's organization to relieve the housing shortage. A part of the same program is the mailing of questionnaires to each of the veterans at SC in order to discover the exact magnitude of the problem. All veterans interested in joining Trovets should indicate on the back of the questionnaire their preference of the hour and day for Trovet meetings, according to Milton Buck, president of the organization. Buck has asked that all veterans fiU out the mailed form completely so that a true picture may be obtained concerning the housing situation among veterans. Veterans who have not received questionnaires or are not reached by a Trov-t representative may get a blank from the dean of men's office. Time for submission of the questionnaires has been extended to Dec. 20. Buck announced. The forms should be filled out and turned in at the office of the dean of men. Consul plans French talk Riley leaves Troy! Herbert James Riley Jr., freshman, who made national headlines four weeks ago when the faculty and student body members petitioned Harry S. Truman, the president of the United States, requesting his intervention in behalf of Riley, today will check out of SC as he leaves for the army tomorrow morning. “The campaign came to a melodramatic climax, stated Harvey Ed- All faculty members and friends of Herbert James Riley Jr. arc invited to an open house at 1254 West 37th street tonight.
