President Karabian said that he felt the new constitution was here to stay but that he would he the first person to admit that it needs refining and clarification in certain areas. “The basic skeletal structure will last,” he said. One of the Important effects of the constitution is that it has made the student body president a more powerful figure in both his relationship with student government itself and with the university administration. “The student body president has become a recognized leader of the student body as a whole,” Karahian said. Hope that the university administration would begin to attach more importance to student opinion because of the grassroots nature of the constitution was voiced bv Karabian.“ Poll Record Steigerwalt Leads Presidential Race With Nelson Next .Senate candidate \l Applebaum last night was caught tearing down his opponent’s poster along University a\e.

Referring tn David Roroff « «rticl^ "imwinjin Colleges.*’ in Harper * Magazine. Dr. Aerol Arnold maintained that Amen, ran students get more guidance • "d more persona I concern from ♦heir professor* than European *tudents. “In Europe, with the option of England’s tutorial system. the kids are even afraid of their professors,” he added. The English professor called Borolfs article a “kind of loose, j excessively general »<id rapidly ; pugnaciou* article." declaims ■ that mod colleges are certainly more await of what's wrong with them than what appears io the article. “I’m growing impatient v, ith this type of drastic condemnation of American uni e >iiv education.” he said in re'eienee to Roroff* proclamation ihat nio»t American colleges do noi give th» «t^irl^nt = riecrnl erlucation. Dr. Arnold maintained that j there ua« ;n enoirnou* amount I of »elf-crilicism aimed at education today and that this was all to the go<»d. "There is a certain type of intellectual who is always dissatisfied with the intellectual atmosphere in which he finds himself/’ he said. He offered the ex am p 1 * of Matthew Arnold who found the intellectual climate of his 19th century inadequate. “People of outstanding ability are essentially self-educated." he declared. “The job of any educational system is to m a k e the teacher unnecessary. Dr. Arnold cited books, conversation and observation as the best self-educators. He said that Boroff’s assertion that college today k “organized fun** attempting to shape a social personality was not true. •This leaction against so-called »ocial adjustments is certainly not true.” he explained. “Most universities think of themselves as essentially a place wheie students are devoted to intellectual pursuits." He said that a fair criticism of many institutions is that Ihev rlo not give enough latitude to the highly gifted students, “A gifted student i* unabl« to ¡ work at bis own speed at today's universities,” he added. “At the University of Chicago, I got fed up with going to lec-j tures and went on the honors program." he continued, adding Ihat he received all of his degrees at the -University of Chicago. Dr. Arnold maintained that great ability is the exception, not the nile. The general ability in all professions not only in the academic world but in all wralks of life - is not exceptionally high, and we had better admit that the average is usually mediocre," he declared. He qualified himself by adding that the average breadth of interest and intellectual integrity of a college community is usually higher than the community on the whole. Dr. Arnold pointed out that he knew of no other group who is as dedicated and under-paid as the members of the academic and ministerial professions. He said that they serve the community well and receive very little reward from the community. Or.

MUN Legation Polishes Plans For Meetings Last minute preparations are being completed hv the 18 members of SC’s delegation to the Model United Nations h^ing held in Berkeley starting next Wednesday, Chairman Joe Morales announced today. The group, representing the memorative Session of tne MUN, has been meeting weekly all semester to discuss American foreign policy and to formulate resolutions on major issues. These resolutions will be presented to the four-dav convention, Morales said. Genocide in Tibet and French nuclear weapon testing in the Sahara are two major issues confronting the SC delegation, he continued. Genocide Question “The genocide question poses a real problem for the United States since Communist China is neither a member of the Unitpd Nations nor recognized by Ihe I'nited States." Morales pointed out. He explained that in many of these difficult questions the U.S. must ahstain from voting just as American delegates to the United Nations generally do. All delegations to the MUN try to interpret and act in accordance with the foreign policies of the countries which they represent since MUN’s major purpose is to provide students with practical experience in the conduct of international r°la-tions. Expect 1000 Secretariat officials at the University of California expect to host more than 1000 delegates during the conference. The students, coming from colleges and universities of the nine western states, will represent the 82 belonging to the United Nations. Activities scheduled during the convention include committee law enforcement agencies suffi- 1 Kingsley. cient freedom in arresting and if this rule were changed the prosecuting criminals, added Dr. Kingsley. Because of the difficulty of securing evidence against narcot- ' ics offenders, police officers have been asking the courts to allow any testimony obtained outside of court from “informers" lo stand up in court, without le-vealing the names of the informers. In order to crack down on narcotics sellers and users, law: enforcement officers have also been pressuring the courts to give them greater freedom in searches and seizures. Under piesent laws protecting Researchers Cut Spending To Foreigners, Urges Lecturer By PANCHO MAKZOLME Americans should cut down on their foreign investments and concentrate more on investing in their own country, said Dr. Arthur E. Burns, visiting Columbia University economics professor. for a series of guest lectures, spoke to a group of faculty members yesterday at a seminar in Bowne Hall on various aspects of the American investment scene. He noted that Americans do not recognize all the investment opportunities in this country, that “opportunities are s o m f*-thing created by the human mind.” Attention l^ag “American businessmen only a small number of voters haven’t paid enough attention to show' up at the polls today. business responses." he added.

Senate parliamentarian and administrative assistant to the ASSC president. He pointed out that more groups have been contacted and urged to vote because there are more students from individual academic and political areas running.
