S. on rea-for going to college, in 1952 Columbia University conducted » direct interview survey of more than 10,000 graduates of 1000 college and universities. The survey *how'*d that college men w^re more nuecessful than non-graduate* in terms of income —not only did they earn more, | but their median income increased with their »ge Graduates in their 30* have income* 110 per cent I above the national median, and | in their 40* and 50*. 130 per cent above. | Studies Im[»ortiint College studies are more im-Jportant than activities in terms ■ of later income power, the survey lrevealed The “bookworms” who concentrated on academic work ‘n college had higher median in-jmes than the average students. I The survey revealed that 85 ?r cent of college graduates are tarried as compared to 78 per ;nt of the general population, nd that the college graduates ve a lower divorce rate. Most church leadership comes rom the ranks of alumni and regular church attendance is higher mong college graduates, the jvey showed. Dean Hyink pointed out the igh degree of political responsibility taken by college graduates, T example. Congress is almost ntireiy made up of coUege and quirements in the Aero-Mechani-cal Field.” H.

The quartet was founded three years ago by Paul Fromm, president of the Fromm Music Foundation, Chicago, to help young composers. Another of the foun-j dation’s goals is to sponsor the performances of compositions by mature composers whose works may not be known to the public. Two proteges of the foundation, Paul Rosen and Ilhan Us-manbas, will have their works featured on the program to be heard here. Rosen was born in Boston in 1921 and received his early musical instruction in Pittsburgh. He studied at New Mexico State College and the University of California. In 1949 Rosen was awarded the George Ladd Prix de Paris and later studied with Darius Milhaud in Paris. At present Rosen heads the music department at the University of California Davis campus. Usmanbas, born in Istanbul in 1921, studied composition at An-kara State Conservatory.

Bird Completes Background On Political Parties By The Watchbird (Editor's Note: This is the sixth in a series of articles analyzing the campus political situation. Thursday and Friday’s installments traced the political activities of non-Row students up to the point in 1953 when colorful independent leader Bo Jansen broke the Unity (non-fraternity) Pfrty alliance with the TRG (Row) Party and a vehement denunciation of Row politicians before the ASSC Senate. Today the Watchbird concludes his outline on political activities of independents.) Jansen's speech, while shocking senators into temporary silence, made some independents realize that such antagonism to the Row was stupia and futile. This realization was graphically proved after the dissolution of Unity in January 1954, and the formation of the Independent Students Party a few weeks later. The new party proclaimed "no pacts with the Row and no Rowites as members.” But the movement fizzled, and no independent party emerged until the recent formation of Mature Student Government Party, which puts membership on an individual basis and doesn’t refuse membership to Rowites. MSG has a spirit new to independent partes—it professes to play to the whole student body, not just independents. But it* main concern is to bring out the independent vote this month. With this new type of party the independents who organized MSG face the realization that they could be overrun by Rowites if some houses wanted to gain control by having their members join as individuals. The membership of the month-* old party is about 50. comprised about half and half of independents and Row students. MSG also faces the fact that while its “membership on an individual basis” principle has an idealistc appeal it doesn’t provide the strong group organization (Continued on Page 4) Writer Speaks On The Movies' Leonard Spigelgass, writer and world traveler, will speak on “The Movies” at the meeting of the Medical Faculty Wives Club at the home of Mrs. Barclay Noble. 2342 West Live Oak Drive, tomorrow at 7:45 p.m. Spigelgass recently wrote the screen plays for “Athena” and “Deep in My Heart.” X
