Rochester U. to Avoid
Starting Term on Holiday

NEW YORK—The University of
Rochester has pledged that it will
no longer begin the fall semester
on any Jewish holiday, following
successful intervention by the
American Jewish Congress.
The promise was contained in a
letter written by President Robert
L. Sproull to Mrs. Sylvia Deutsch,
director of the AJC's Queens Di-
vision, whose son is a junior at
the university.
Dr. Sproull's final response con-
tained his pledge that the univer-
sity, "which usually starts on a
Monday, will not start on Monday
next year (1972) because of Yom
Kippur. The first day of classes
will be Tuesday, Sept. 19." Dr.
Sproull added:
"I have been assured that the
university will not start classes
on a religious holiday next year
or any other year in the foresee-
able future.
"I would be less than honest
with you if I did not say that this
makes serious problems for us,
because the holidays and secular
calendar do not maintain a fixed
position with respect to one another,
but we agree that it is the only
considerate thing we can do."

We must always change, renew,
rejuvenate ourselves, otherwise we
harden. —Goethe
