np director and initiator of the
ject, said.

ion," as the school's prospectus

ors think they've tried. every-

concentration, the more rapid
progress." This emphasis will

on the Interlochen site have al-
ready been winterized,. Maddy
added, and a new dormitory hous-

rooms, is "in the works."
The staff has not yet been se-

many applicants for positions.

Sociology Study

The sociology department has,
announced that Karen Russell has
won the Eita Krom Award of $100

nection with a course in sociology.
The paper was entitled "Scien-

student left the University.
Women's upperclass housing has
been debated for four years. Bar-
bour was a junior-senior house
from 1956 to 1958 and Little has
served that capacity this year.
Due to the increased difficulty
for senior women to obtain apart-'
ment permissions, it is projected
by Assembly's committee that
there will be an increased desire
for upper-class housing in the
future.- However, it is felt that
this trend must be adequately ob-
served before increasing upper-
class housing residence hall facili-.

The Assembly committee there-

of Governors that after an addi-
tional year of study and evaluation
of upperclass housing as it is now
established in Little House, after
studying the administrative feasi-
bility of establishing an additional
upperclass house at Barbour, and
after observing the desired needs
and trends, that a more realistic;
recommendation canrbermade
than at the present time.
The Housing Committee, estab-

the office of the Dean of Women,
will present their recommenda-

Forty-one countries submitted

of 19 awards given, four went to
United States composers.

taught will be determined by this
"academic dean," who will decide
on the "proper combination of
arts and academics."
Director Maddy, whose interest,
in teaching gifted and talented,
students began when he conduct-
ed student orchestras, was recent-
ly given the AmAican Education,
Award for 1959.
He was cited for "devoting his
full time and energy to teaching
and inspiring his 'young friends'
to develop their talents and to
learn to express themselves in mu-
sic and art."
Six Receive
Law.A wards
At the Law School centennial
delebration, six students were pre-
sented the pictorial awards for
"outstandin gservice" to the Law-
yer's Club during the past year.
Receiving the award, a large
picture of the Law School, were
Harry Asch, '59L, Thomas Dieter-
ick, '59L, Harry Gaines, '59L, and
David Harfeld, '59L.
Also honored were Robert Reid,
'61L, and Roger Gambatese, '60L.

The Muse has come to the Un-
degraduate Library.-
In the form of the second floor
listening program, it arrived Sun-
day afternoon when the program
commenced with Handel's "Con-'
certo Grosso, No. 3."
Reaction to the plan, which
calls for soft classical music to
be played on the second floor of
the Library twice a week was gen-
erally favorable, Mrs. Roberta'C.
Keniston, director of the Library,
reported. Of 183 students who
handed in answers to questions on
"opinion slips," 146 favored the
plan and 37 opposed it..
Comment recorded at the be-
ginning of the program Sunday
was entirely favorable. J. W. Lin-
dau, IV, '60, said that he usually
studied on the third floor but had
come to the second especially to'
listen to the music. Classical mu-
sic, he said, would drive out all
of the "rock and roll" fans and
leave the floor quiet for studyin.
Welcomes Music
Gerald Lundy, '59, said he often
studied in the Audio Room and
so welcomed music on the floor
of the Library. Mrs. Keniston has
said that reaching such listeners
was a major aim of the program.
The idea of music on the sec-
ond floor was called "intellectual-
ly satisfying and emotionally
soothing" by David Bortman, '60.
Warren Solon, '60, also thought
the plan a good idea. He said that
he had come to the Library es-
pecially for the program.
Likes 1Irgram
Representing another group,
those who liked music but did not
m~ake special trips' to hear it,
Leonard Wiener, '62, said he liked
the program ,and would come to
the second floor if he was in the
Library when it was going on.
Judy Weinberger, '61, was curi-
ous about the idea, came to hear
it and decided it should be con-
.Edward Klevans, Grad., and
his fiancee, Debbie Rosen, '60,
both liked the idea. Miss Rosen
had been "brought" to the Library
but still was agreeable.
To Be Continued
If the response continues to be
as favorable, Mrs. Keniston com-

mented, the program would sure-
ly be continued. She added, how-
ever, that the Library wanted to '
see the results of a few more pro-
grams before making a definite
She said that opinion received
had probably been from people
with definite opinions. There were
many other people on the second
floor who had no strong feelings,
either way, she added.
Mrs. Keniston said some sug-
gestions had been received as to
the volume of the music, which
would be experimented with and
for mood music similar to that of
the Union. As to the latter, she
said the Undergrad's record col-
lection contents and purpose
weighed against it.
The next programN ill take
place 7-10 p,m.? Wednesday.
