"What ihe modern lovcl should do is move toward re<ii realism.” FREDERICK SHROYER . . 'real reality needed' Sorority Gives Science Fund Gift of $200 A good novel should be a close, intimate, historical picture—“a mirror of the times.” Dr. Shroyer contended that the sincere novelist believes that truth is more important than facts. "The novelist arranges rather than creates.” he explained. •‘What he creates is really an outgrowth of actual or vicarious experiences.” Prime I’urpoose He went on lo state that the prime purpose of a novel is to entertain, and the writer must bring the reader into his worn, ¡■‘as the honey in the flower brings the bee.” The function of the author actually becomes threefold: to crc-aie suspense and interest, to explain something and lo make ¡.judgment. "All fiction is suspense,” Dr. Shroyer said “and suspense is what attracts the reader and keeps his interest. “In explaining something, the ¡author often explains the re?der j to himself, and this also is an important element of the novel.” Makes Judgment “The fiction writer makes un-1 conscious judgment,’’ he contin-|ued, “but judgments should be conscious because they are more controlled. “ Bad novels, in thems?lves also may make judgments, and if these books enjoy popularity, the judgments are indicative of -he type of society which reads them.” In addition. Dr. Shroyer told how factual material can be manipulated in writing a novel and cited Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea” as Sophomore Confusion About President Ends Snavely Will Head Spring Government Committee To Talk On Bookstore Sales Wednesday.

Segregated We Fall, Says Negro Educator The United States divided against itself racially cannot stand long. Dr. Paul Lawrence, first Negro school supervisor in California, told a gathering of the California Student Teachers Association and SC Educational Council members here yesterday. Dr. Lawrence, who has been superintendent of the Willow-brook School District for the past two 'years, discusse d ‘‘Thoughts of Brotherhood Week.’’ The talk was the first in ff Series of monthly lectures being sponsored by the two educational organizations. Togetherness He pointed out that many influential ancient societies collapsed because “people weren’t together,'’ and added that “we too could fall, and much harder, because we are so much bigger.” Dr. Lawrence centered his talk around a book he is now writing on integration in the United States. “My first chapter will show that the people of the United States are just like a pot of soup,” he said. He said that a nation, like soup, must be blended with diverse ingredients in the proper proportions. The result in both instances is most effective when no one element dominates and all do their part for the common good, he said. Describes Chapters “In my third chapter I will try to point out who has the right to call this nation his nation . . . I will show the parts that many kinds of peoples have played in | this nation,” he continued. Another question which Dr. j Lawrence said he would answer ! in the book is “Can we afford | discrimination?” “If I had time I would like lo ! tell how costly discrimination is, ' not only to a man's soul, but in j cash dollars,” he said. For illustrations, he referred | to various areas in the south I where two segregated schools ; now are performing a function j which could be handled ade-i quately by one integrated school. Society Suffers ‘’Discrimination is a kind of cancer in American society. It does ,something as bad to the white society as it does to the Negro society.” he declared. He emphasized that progress, although gradual, has been made toward racial unity in the United States during recent years. “I do sincerely believe, -however. that this nation will stand united and I and others may be able to help give that push toward unity,” he concluded. will meet with acting Financial Vice President Elton D. Phillips to discuss ihe operations and sales records of the University Bookstore, today at 9 a.m. Arkin, head of a student senatorial investigating committee, said that this meeting, the first in a series of executive meetings, will let. the committee and the student body president find out how the bookstore’s price policy is set and how used textbook buying and selling is handled. ‘Save Money’ “We are trying to save the student mony when he buys his books next semester,” Arkin said. “The only way that we can suggest for doing this is by understanding how the book store sells and buys the lextbooks students use during the semester.” “With this initial meeting,” he continued. “I hope that we can get an extensive background so that subsequent meetings can be filled with senatorial suggestions for a more efficient and a more economical book store.” First Report The committee, organized by Fitz Randolph, will give its first report at the Senate meeting on sophomore class council climaxed . . | a semester of dual leadership in were contrary to that of a lead- . . , .. . . , «... J • which the elected president. Dave Gissell, served as actual er. Barnes' Answer To this Barnes said “Stan is no doubt concerned over this particular study.” “Were I the chairman of a committee,” he continued, “I would react in the same manner it not one of the prominent student leaders on the ASSC Senate wished to serve with me on the committee.” “Stan is doubtless correct in assuming that I was dozing during the time his bookstore motion was up for consideration,” he said, “for as I remember, it was Stan who was doing all of the talking during this period.” Barnes declared that the committee chairman, to find substantiation for the theory that no matter how worth while a project is it can always be made an instrument of personal attack,” used a biased approach in this senatorial inquiry. Model United Nations Justice Posts Filled Ten SC law students who will fill remaining positions on th>* Model United Nations’ fourth International Court of Justice, scheduled April 22-25 at SC, were announced today by Joel Fisher, Model U.N. assistant secretary-general. Justices from SC will include George Baechtold, John Bedros-ian, Harvey Gerber, Mason Knight, Laurence Klugman, Gerald Ravdon, Ernest Schag and S>cott Simon. Ben McKesson and Bill Wirin were named chief counsels. Previously appointed were Sid Adair, registrar and William Pippin, chief justice. UCLA and Loyola University will each be represented by three justices at the court, which will hear hypothetical international disputes brought voluntarily by the “nations” involved. ‘‘The court of justice is a re-j cent development in Model United Nations history, originating within the past three years. It has become one of the most popular component parts of the conference,” Fisher said. “It was developed to give the research specialist in a Model United Nations delegation the type of activity he might excel in, and has produced scholarly work touching on several important international issues,” he declared. Summer Session Teacher Classes Will Be Offered Secondary school teachers will have the opportunity to study the most recent advances in their respective fields this summer at SC. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, summer instil uies will he offered by the department of biology, chemistry and mathematics.

The station is currently operated on a closed-cireuit basis. but not nominal president, and Miss Snavely acteu the role of an ornamental figurehead. Dual Leadership This “era of dual leadership” came into being when Gissell, elected sophomore president by nearly 200 votes, was declared ineligible to take office because c£ grade deficiency of Vi grade unit (he was put on probation). According to the ASSC Constitution. Miss Snavely, elected vice-president in the same election, had three choices outlined to her by ASSC President Scott Fitz Randolph. They were: (1) Take over the duties of president as the official sophomore executive. (2) Make provisions for a re-election (impratical as well as contrary to university policy). (3) Appoint Gissell as her advisor, giving him a “proxy” Senate seat and the right to “run” the council meetings. Official Adviser Vice-President Snavely, having a week to make her decision, made Gissell her "official sophomore adviser” giving him the actual powers of the sophomore presidency. Fitz Randolph said that it was entirely her choice as “she was in the driver’s seat “and had the ultimate choice in the final decision.” “Evidently,” the ASSC president continued, “she (Snavely) and Dave (Gissell) got together and made some arrangement and I was perfectly happy that the sophomore council had come together under the unified leadership of an able pair.” No Choice Miss Snavely, however, said that she did not have much choice in the matter of making Gissell an adviser. .“He was upset about the entire situation,” she said, “and I thought that he was sincere and that it was unfair that he could not become the official president. so I gave him another chance.” Activities Limited Her activities during this period were laregly limited to those of the vice-presidential office. And, as she puts it, “two presidents—one in practice and one on paper—did not work out.” “He (Gissell) just didn’t have the time.” she said. “It wasn’t that he did not make an honest attempt to do a good job but there was just too much for him to dc.” She clarified this last remark by saving that Gissell was car- j rving 17 units of classes, various !

Leadership Lacking “Our problem during the first semester was basically one of leadership,” she explained. “Gcod leadership was definitely lacking.” She took the blame for this as official president, she said. Although last semester’s executive members were perfectly legal in their activities by a liberal interpretation of the university constitution, the fact remains that a student whose grade average falls beneath that necessary to hold a public office should net be given a special position. Now headed by their president Miss Snavely, the sopomore class council will pick up the threads of a broken executive board in an attempt to contribute something constructive to the university. KUSC To Air Society Views On Languages Four SC students will be featured guests on KUSC-FM’s “International Inn” tonight at 7:30. The students—Pat Constantine, Allan Croghan, Ram Singh, and Willard Traucht—are members of Alpha Mu Gamma, a national honorary society currently sponsoring “Foreign Language Week” (Feb. 13 to Feb. 20). During a 30-minute panel discussion, the four will be interviewed by KUSC-FM’s moderators. Buddy Faman and Lorraine Holnback. The purpose, function, and history of Alpha Mu Gamma will be discussed along with the question “What is Foreign Language Week?" The practical advantages of a foreign language in improving international relations will also be discussed. Students may join Alpha Mu Gamma if they have completed three semesters of a foreign language and received at least two B’s and one A. They must also have a cumulative average of c> Police Seek Out SC Pharmacist Some of SC’s professors are so popular they even get mail from Scotland Yard.

The new procedure, invaluahl** in police work, shortened the analysis time from two minutes to one hour. Former methods took from four hours to several days. Since then Biles has been deluged with requests ror the Biles-Penrose paper from law enforcement agencies all over the world. His latest request — from Scotland Yard.
