Japanese School Closes Tomorrow
226 Co. A Members To Be Graduated
Col. Kai E. Rasmussen, commandant of the military intelligence service language school, Fort Snelling, Minn., will address the 226 enlisted men and officers of Co. A, 3650th service command unit here, at graduation exercises for the group tomorrow morning.
The ceremony will be held at 9 a.m. in the Rackham amphitheater. There are 28 officers among the graduates and 198 enlisted men.
Graduation of Co. A marks the termination of the Army Japanese Language school program on the University of Michigan campus. The school was opened here in January, 1943. Members of Co. A comprise the sixth and seventh classes to study at the school.
Graduates will be given a two week furlough following the ceremony and will then report for further training and commissions at Fort Snelling, after which they will presumably be sent overseas for duty with the military intelligence department.
Dr. William H. Worrell, chairman of the department of Oriental languages and literature here, will present awards to the outstanding students of the graduating classes. Pfc. Antonio V. Tramonte will play the piano and Cpl. Tulio J. Gasperini will give selections on the accordion. Both men are members of Co. A.
