The Senate adjourned without taking final action on either. That proposed by Senator-at-Large George Bermant occupied the discussion. The alternate — proposed by George Woolery, president of the college of letters, arts and sciences —didn't reach the voting stage, but was discussed in arguments comparing it to Bermant’s. The major overhaul move aimed at the original Bermant proposal consisted of adding an entire section to the amendment—an amendment to an amendment. Then, as debate churned on, this move itself was amended. Ellen Potter. ASSC vice-president, was author of the new section, which called for putting the petition in the hands of the dean of students for “clearance and approval” before circulation to the students. STEGMAN OPPOSES Debate Capt. Ed Stegman opposed this, declaring, “I don’t think we should tie ourselves to the apron strings of the administration.” Sending proposed initiative measures to the Senate Rules committee, instead of the dean of students, was the suggestion of Maury Delta; Beverly Heiss.

A collection for the Trojan Chest Atom Problems Can Be Solved Says SC Dean CAI Term Paper Contest Offers $100 to Winners The fertile mind of coUege students can solve the problems of the atomic age. Harry J. Deuel Jr., dean of the Graduate School and director of the School of Research, said today. “This is one excellent way to make us realize the wide variety of applications of atomic energy, both useful and destructive,” he said, speaking in favor of the CAI term paper contest. Cash prizes totaling $100 wiU be awarded to contest winners. Entrants may submit any term paper that has been slanted to show atomic influences in a specific field. CAI Chairman Cecil Alberts said that the contest is non-technical and will be judged on the basis of clarity, logic, and realization of the potentials of atomic energy. Entrants must comply with the following rules: 1. Select a topic and sign an application blank at 310 Bridge. 2. Present the influences of atomic energy upon the student's profession or subject. 3. Make a carbon copy for the judges if the paper is also to be used for a course. It should be submitted to CAI. 310 Bridge, by the end of the 12th semester week.
