Re- garded primarily as a contribution to the war effort, the University authorities feel that the rapidly expandig uses for aerial trans- portation will continue after the emergency has ceased, making necessary the remodeling of ele- mentary school curricula to in- clude courses in aeronautics. With Sister Aquinas as principal instructor, and assisted by Sister Peola, O.S.F., of Superior, Wis., and Dr. M. Gertrude Reiman of the physics department of the Uni- versity, two series of courses will be given. The first will start on May 31 and be under the direction of the civil Aeronautics Authority, with free tuition. The second and longer course will be given during the regular summer session, open- ing on June 25 and continuing until August 7. The schedule for the summer session is divided in two parts, and includes instruction in air- craft structure', aerodynamics, engines, rules and regulations for pilots and theory of flight, with meteorology, navigation, radio and communications, as well as ex- cursions to neighboring labor- atories and airfields so far as BOB ELLIOTT & SON Jewelers El Dorado, Ark.

After 3 Years Silence, Church Bells Ring London. (t)---Church bells are ringing again to call the people to Sunday worship, and convent bells are again ordering the lives of religious communities, as the threat of invasion has receded and the ban on the ringing of bells has been lifted. For three years or so Britain's bells have been silent, with one recent exception which was made to mark a desert victory. The ringing of church bells was to be the signal for invasion. The bells were under the care of the military. Prime Minister Churchill an- nounced in the House of Com- mons that the War Cabinet after receiving the advice of the Chiefs of Staff, has reviewed the whole question and that bells may now be rung "in the ordinary manner." The ban was lifted in time for Easter, and all over the country bells which had hung silently, ready to toll news of calamity, pealed the joyous tidings of Christ's Resurrection. Not for some time will the bells ring again "in the ordinary man- ner" for most of the bell-ringers are in the army or on war work. i Many of the older ringers have, in fact, gone to their reward. Some of the bells had been re- moved from church towers to guard against the their being brought bombs. Others have because of disuse and re-roping.
