C is correct. Pictured here, Associate Pro-
fessor Peter Van Deursen Haven discusses
Venezuelan architecture at Central Univer-
sity in Caracas with students enrolled in
World Campus Afloat-Chapman College
during the Spring 1967 semester at sea.
This group was one of many to fan-out
over Caracas for various course-related
field experiences during the several days
the s.s. RYNDAM, campus and dormitory
for the traveling students and faculty, was
docked in the South American port.
Professor Haven now teaches art courses
at the University of Miami, Florida. His
students.have transferred credits earned
aboard the floating campus to their home
campuses and have resumed regular
classes. One is from South Dakota,
majoring in Sociology at Tabor College in
Hillsboro, Kansas; another is a junior in Political Science at San Francisco State
College; a third is a sophomore in Latin American Studies at Indiana University and
still another a business student at Santa Monica City College in California.
As you read this, more than 500 students, representing 200 colleges and universities
throughout the country, accompanied by a distinguished faculty, already have
embarked from New York for the Fall 1967 semester which will take them to ports in
Europe, Africa and Asia, returning to Los Angeles via Honolulu.
Students are now enrolling for the Spring 1968 semester and will depart from Los
Angeles to engage in shipboard study supplemented by visits to ports in Peru, Chile,
Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Senegal, Morocco, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Yugoslavia,
Italy, Portugal, The Netherlands and Great Britain, terminating in May in New York.

Marijuana Danger
Taking a sharply different po-
sition. U.S. Narcotics Commission-
er Henry L. Giaordano testified
before Congress earlier this year
that marijuana "is not, as some
people say, less dangerous than
alcohol or less than smoking to-
bacco. Some way we have got to
get this across to the public."
And Dr. Philip R. Lee, assistant
secretary for scientific affairs for
the Department of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare, told the Asso-
ciated Press, "We just don't have
enough information" to know the
dangers of marijuana.
But federal officials agree the
growing use of marijuana is of
serious concern.

In Colorado, the death penalty

No one knows how many Ameri-
cans use, or have used, marijuana.
But indications are that the num-
ber is increasing. A Gallup Poll
survey for Reader's Digest said
Tuesday night that about 6 per
cent of college students have tried
the drug.
U.S. Customs officials seized a
record 26,000 pounds of the drug
last fiscal year, twice as much as
the year before.
