Cannon Director of Student Teaching SC EXAM SYSTEM GIVEN VERBAL AAASSAGE TODAY ASSC Debaters Review Problem LECTION NEARS, DIRECTOR. Y ISSING-COINCIDENCE? m Open season on all voters has been officially proclaimed by the kidnapping (for the umpteenth time) of the student directory cards from their case outside the Bookstore. The theft was reported Friday morning. “I have nothing to say,” said Dr. A. Zech yesterday. I have no idea where the cards are or who took them again. Last year the> were missing just before the elections. Of course we don’t know if students took them, but it is interesting that they are missing right before voting.” Optimistic veterans of previous elections said yesterday they hoped that, with the dissolution of old political parties, the old tricks would have gone down the drain too. Assistant Registrar David W. Evans, who first heard of the theft, hopes that the wandering cards might still be returned because part of the alphabet was left behind. “Part of the alphabet has disappeared before, but then it has turned up and the rest has disappeared,” he said. “I guess whoever took them couldn’t carry them all.” He was puzzled that the theft took place so early in the semester. “Usually, whoever takes them is kind enough to wait until |ater in the semester,” he said. Locks and steel covers have been put on the directory box, Mit to no avail. There is no duplicate set of cards. by Jonas Halperin Examinations—that frightening word in college life that has kept the midnight oil burning and has caused enough mental anguish to fill a thousand psychiatric reports—is due for a verbal massage today at the ASSC’s “Troy Meetings.” Four students will speak on the topic “Should SC’s Exam System Be Changed?” at 3:15 p.m., in 133 FH. Student Body President Warren Clendening, Senator-at-Large William Van Alstyne, School of Education President Shirley Egland, and Independent Men’s Representative Murray Bring will speak on such questions as “should graduating seniors be exempt from finals?” Oxford System "In discussing the comparative advantage of adopting the Oxford four-year comprehensive examination and tutor system,” Van Alstyne said, “I shall present evidence from psychological studies, including techniques and psychological habits to cut the time required to memorize data severely, while increasing the percentage of material remembered over a longer period of time. “Such devices,” he added, “are a divided sleeping period, memorization by auditory, visual and motor learning and short, spaced, repetitious reviews of subject matter.” Murray Bring said that the only strong arguments against SC’s adopting the honor system is that students would take advantage of it by cribbing. Bring’s View “There is no evidence to support this view, and its supposed strength as an argument diminished in the face of overwhelming evidence from universities that have instituted the system,” Bring said. Bring added that it would provide a greater challenge to professors to formulate tests in which understanding of the material and not mere memorization of material would receive greater emphasis. Miss Egland said that the present system of examinations is based on sound educational principles. “Many of the nation’s foremost educators endorse it. A majority of our student body supports it as a functional system,” Miss Egland said. Clendening takes the view that a graduating senior should not be required to take a series of finals during his last two weeks of college. Seniors’ Side “Instructors should give them a short exam in the last' week so that they know immediately if they are to graduate,” Clendening said. Seyom Brown, forum committee co-chairman said the procedure for today’s “Troy Meeting” will be difffferent from previous ones. “Instead of presenting sides for debate, we shall have a roundtable discussion,” Brown said. Roundtable Method “The roundtable method leaves more room for varying points of view and aims to reach a solution to the problem which will take into account these various views,” Brown added. Brown said that any student with a gripe, complaint, or suggestion may attend the forum, which is comprised of members of the ASSC Senate having power to translate suggestions into specific actions. “Since there is a real possibility that the exam system may be changed in the near future, students are urged to offer*their opinions now,” Brown said. In April the forum committee is planning the “Troy Meeting” on student elections. For May, *‘SC—Country Club or University?” will be the subject. Right, Wrong To Be Valued By Professor A practical theory which can define such values as what is “right” and what is “wrong,” will b^ discussed by Dr. William H. Werkmeister, professor of philosophy on the Philosophy Forum series tomorrow at 4:15 p.m. in Bowne Hall. The ultimate aim of this school of thought is to develop a theory of valua which will be basic sciences such as ethics, aesthetics, and economics. “The approach of the< theory is based upon human experience,” said. “We will first be concerned with experienced value facte, like a person’s positive reaction to good food or beauty. “Next, the judgmental evaluations of these facts, and then the involvement of the whole person in all valued experiences will be discussed,” he said. Dr. Werkmejster has formerly taught at universities of Nebraska, Berlin, Harvard, and Boston. He has taught here since last fall. Professor of PE Appointed to Post Dr. Laurence E. Morehouse, associate professor of physical edu cation, has been appointed as Consultant to the United States Public Health Service, it was announced yesterday.

UC Students May Give In order to enable night school students to donate blood, sign-up tables will be located at the entrances of buildings and on each floor at the head of the stairs. “I hope that people attending night classes will realize the importance of giving blood and will sign up this week,” Miss Barrett said.

Last semester, the 900- pint-quota was exceeded by 450 pints. 18 or Older Any student 18 or older is eligible to give blood; however students under 21 will have to have their parent’s signature. * The Red Cross needs blood for military and civilian hospitals, as well as for processing into plasma, gamma globulin, and other derivatives to fight disease and epidemics.

WORLD NEWS ROUNDUP GOP Solon Blasts McCarthy from the United Press WASHINGTON, Mar. 22—Sen. Charles E. Potter (R-Mich.) today denounced as “a lot of poppycock” Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy’s proposal that all witnesses in his bitter row with the Army submit to lie detector tests. Potter, a member of McCarthy’s subcommittee, said use of the lie detector would turn the group’s investigation of the charges and counter-charges swapped by McCarthy and Army Secretary Robert T. Stevens into “a three-ring circus.” * * * PRINCETON, N. J., Mar. 22— Adlai E. Stevenson today said he thinks it is “lamentable” that the country has reached h e stage where lie detector tests are proposed for Congress. Stevenson was asked to comment on Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s suggestion that lie detectors be used during the Senate’s investigation of the Wisconsin senator’s controversy with the Army. “I think it gets to a lamentable stage when such methods are proposed in investigations on public questions,” Stevenson said. * + * JERUSALEM, Mar. 22—United Nations investigators followed with bloodhounds today the trail of the ambush-killers of 11 Israeli men and women aboard a bus on a lonely stretch of road near the ancient Biblical town of Beer-sheba. The bus driver was killed yesterday by a blast of light ma-chinegun fire directly in his face as his vehicle rounded a hairpin turn in Scorpion’s Pass. The bus crashed into a hillside and the killers climbed aboard, riddled the passengers with gunfire and mutilated their bodies. Five of the passengers escaped, but two w^ere wounded seriously. TOKYO, Mar. 22—The Bikini hydrogen explosion Mar. 1 was so strong that radioactive ash may have traveled 1600 miles in two days and fallen on Japan, Kyoto University scientists indicated today. That belief was reported by the physicists as charges were made that Japanese and American scientists were making “guinea pigs” out of 23 Japanese fishermen burned by atomic dust 80 miles from the blast scene. The Kyoto experts said the Geiger counter in their laboratory showed an extraordinary high count Mar. 3. Neither before nor after this date did it register such activity. -K ■¥ •¥■ WASHINGTON, Mar. 22 — France’s top general today conferred with President Eisenhower and Adm. Arthur W. Radford on the broad aspects of increasing aid to the beleaguered French force in Indo China. Gen. Paul Ely, French Chief of Staff, declined to discuss with reporters any specific aspects of the conversation, but it was widely reported he wants more American planes, particularly B-26 bombers, C-119 transports, and helicopters. * * * W ASHINGTON', Mar. 22 — Air Secretary Harold E. Talbott today said the Air Force intends to continue all current activities at Long Beach, Calif., municipal airport.
