Pr'Uedict Large Bike Loss
For '' ealrs olc
By RICHARD CONDON
This year the Ann Arbor Police
Department will be faced with 900
to 1,000 bicycles which will be
either stolen or lost in the city of
The preceding statement is of
course a mere speculation, but
Sergeant H. Remnant, the officer
whose task it is to restore these
vehicles to their rightful owners,
makes this prediction which is
based on the figures he has com-
piled over the past few years.
Thieves Are Students
Unfortunately, the great major-
ity of stolen bicycles will be owned
by University students and many
of the thieves will likewise be en-
rolled at Michigan. Sergeant Rem-
nant reports that each year well
over 50 per cent of the bikes are
voluntarily or ,ninvoluntarily re-
turned to those that own them, but
the number is tremendously high
in view of the fact that only an
average of 1200 bicycle licenses
are issued by the Ann Arbor Police
Department each year.
Many of the bikes which will
be reported stolen have, strangely
enough, not been stolen at all but
only borrowed as a means of
necessary and convenient convey-
ance. When this is the case usually
the machine is promptly returned
after its user ends his two-way
journey. Nevertheless, if the owner
wishes to file a complaint the
guilty party is held responsible in
the eyes of the law and is prose-
cuted for petty larceny, "which
usually ends with a severe fine.
Borrowed Bike Six Times
Last year one student was re-
poited to have had his bike bor-
ro%ed six times in1 a single week.
Whether or not the people involved
are guilty of robbery he is still
booked as a criminal offender.
Bicycles which the police de-
partment finds abandoned by
either owner or robber are taken to
the City Hall and the owner is
notified if possible. If this cannot
be done they are kept there and
sold at a public auction which is
held twice each year for this pur-
Each week the police files record
numerous complaints of stolen
bikes. Since every bike is required
by law to carry a license sticker,
the bikes are often found, and
returned.' Frequently bikes whichl
are reported stolen are found or
returned and the owner never
notifies the police. His complaint
is still registered, however, and
this leads to complications. Con-
sequently the Police must make a
thorough examination of their files
Thus far the semester is off to a
resounding start; there are seventy
bicycles stored behind City Hall

PRINCETON - Schools and
colleges will be given complete
discretion in reporting of scores
received on the Scholastic Apti-
tude Tests and Achievement
Tests beginning with tests admin-
istered in December, 1958, be-
cause of a recent change in the
College Board policy which gov-
erns reporting of scores.
Previously, senior scores were
kept, confidential by the schools
and colleges which received them,
although some junior year candi-
date scores were announced..
In making this decision, school
and college members of the board
also announced the appointment
of a sub-committee to assist
schools in score interpretation
and clerical processes. Recently
the board held discussions and
committee actions considering
both the difficulty of dispelling
an atmosphere of secrecy sur-
rounding test scores and also the
difficulty of explaining indivdiual
Commenting on the policy
change before it was presented to
members of the board for action,
the President of the College En-
trance Examination Board, Frank
H. Bowles, suggested relationship
between the growth in the num-
ber of Board colleges and candi-
dates, the national concern over
the development of collegeen-
trance and the method of score
"Because of the extent of this
concern," he said, "the extension
to the secondary schools of the
same privilege of discussing scores
with their twelfth grade students
that they now enjoy with their
eleventh grade students is both
sensible and timely."
SPressures under which schools
must now work in advising their
students and helping them to find
placement in colleges are recog-
nized under' the proposal, Bowles
said. The decision is timely he
added, because colleges cannot al-
low themselves to appear to hide
admission operations behind a
veil of secrecy.
"This action recommended will,
I believe, eliminate an anomalous
situation and at the same time go
far to bring large numbers of
secondary schools into a closer
counseling relationship with col-

Columbia College is now grant-
ing up to six points of academic
credit toward the A.B. degree.
These credits awarded under an
advanced placementdtest dscore.
"There is nothing sacred about,
the four years that have been tra-
ditionally required for the A.B.
in the American college," says
Chamberlain. Under the new
plan, entering freshmen complet-
ing college level work in high
school may begin their collegiate
study of such subjects at a more
advanced level than the custom-
ary basic college course. In each
case, the applicant's work is care-
fully examined to be certain that
it qualifies him f or advanced
work, Chamberlain added.
"For the average student, the
four-year term will probably con-
tinue to make sense," however,
"for the student of superior capa-
city and drive, standard patterns,
whether of ground to be covered
or of time limitations, can only
retard when emphasis should be
