STUDY HABITS:
Professor
Giv es .Hints
By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - Millions of
students are back in class
wonderingif they have what it
takes to shine as scholars.
They should lend an ear to Dr.
Leslie N. Nason, professor of edu-
cation at the University of South-
ern California. He's specialized
for 20 years in helping students
do better at exams.
Study habits, he says, can make
all the differenrce. And he has a
lot of helpful hints.
HERE ARE some he devised for
college freshmen - "the fresh-
man year is an ideal time to culti-
vate proper methods"-but which
should benefit students at other
levels:
"1) Read the material in the
table of contents of whatever
book you are studying.
"2) Read the first paragraph
or two of the first chapter.
"3) Skim through th chapter
rapidly.
"4) Read the summary at the
end of the chapter.
"Then start reading the chapter
carefully. At the end of each
paragraph, ask yourself, 'What
did the writer say?'
* * * .
"SLOW READING allows ex-
traneous thoughts and material
to penetrate the consciousness.
Reading faster serves to whip the
mind to a faster rate of operation,
thus limiting the circle of percep-
tion exclusively to the material at
hand."
On lectures:
"You hav'e to prepare for the
lecture by glancing at the ma-
terial to be lectured on before-
hand. You get an over-all pattern
in mind. You are filling up mind
space which is not utilized by the
lecturer. He's not talking fast
enough to fill up your mind.
* * *
"THERE is a little game you
ought to play. If the lecturer is

too slow, try to anticipate what
he will say about the subject. If
you do that, then the entire circle
of perception is filled either with
the lecturer's ideas or with the
over-all pattern of the subject
matter."
Dr. Nason sums up:
"This isn't just a gimmick
memory system but a better
learning method. You are not just
getting stray bits but it is all re-
lated to a pattern."

INTERPRETING-
Continued
Cease-Fire?
By J. M. ROBERTS
Associated Press News Analyst
THE BIG question in the world'
chancelleries today is whether
the Chinese Reds will resume shell-
ing the offshore islands tomorrow
night.
The general opinion seems to be
that they will not. There Is no
way of telling how much this
opinion is influenced by wishful
thinking.
Representatives of countries
which have diplomatic relations
with Peiping have been dropping
private hints for several days that
the intensive bombardment would
not be resumed.
They did not rule out, however,
the possibility that the Reds would
use sporadic firing to emphasize
their political maneuvering for a
more important world position.
THIĀ§ WOULD be part of the
general picture- in which they have
succeeded in beginning negotia-
tions in Warsaw with the United
States, which does not recognize,
them diplomatically. They have a
representative also at this week's
meeting of Warsaw Pact figures in
Warsaw. They are pushing for ne-
gotiations over the whole question
of United Nations membership and
elimination .of the Chinese Na-
tionalist establishment on eFor
mosa.
They expect to become a figure
in the negotiations over establish-
ment of a system for checking an
atomic testing ban.
. Their very latest broadcasts are
still demanding nego iations for
the withdrawal of Ameican armed
forces from the Far East.
The United States, however, is
not overlooking the possibility that
the Reds intend to press their
claim to all the islands, including
Formosa, by force.
Nevertheless, these very efforts
at propaganda, which would be
undercut by a resumption of bom-
bardment, formed one of the chief
bases for the belief that the cease-
fire will extend beyond tomorrow.

NEIL STAEBLER, a leading citizen of Ann
Arbor and .also the state chairman of the
Michigan Democratic Party, is not especially
noted for his lack of partisanship in political
matters.
But even the most rabid of Republicans are1
secretly conceding the truth in his recent
statement that "the issues aren't getting'
through to the voters. I think it is because the
Republicans have quit fighting."
One can hardly blame the GOP, for once
again, in the Democratic corner, wearing the
green and white bow tie, is champion camp
paigner Gov. G. Mennen Williams. The fight-
ing spirit of challenging Republican candidate
Paul Bagwell does not necessarily inspire the
same feeling of confidence among his party
comrades. For as election time approaches,
many of them are sitting on their hands and
wallets. A local Republican summed it up:
"Why pour money down the drain?"
UNFORTUNATELY for the Republicans,
there is a similarity on the national scene.
President Eisenhower expressed concern about
"apathy or complacency of some Republican
workers and candidates." Being realistic, com-
placency can be ruled 'out - the question is
not who will win control of Congress but how
large will the Democratic majority be.
L71r f ra 10 arty be

The apathy might be the result of the ques-
tion, "Why pour energy down the drain?"
Of course, the Republicans have been hit
by the Adams case, the Formosa and Middle
East conflicts and, perhaps to a decreasing ex-
tent as the economy recovers, the recession.
B UT THE weak points in the Republican
election front lie deeper than the cuts of
a few issues. Much of it lies within the compo-
sition of the party itself, for the noisy 1952
convention which nominated Eisenhower only
superficially covered a factional split.
The conservative wing which had controlled
the party, only to be rolled over by the Citizens
for Eisenhower movement, went along with
Ike's "Modern Republicanism" solely for the
protective power of his coattails.
And as his influence weakens, both as a re-
sult of diminishing luster and approaching re-
tirement, the orthodox wing is voicing more
loudly its own once muted attitudes.
IN MICHIGAN, the split has led to an apathy
and lack of fighting spirit that is even more
disastrous to the Republicans because there
simply haven't been any strong coattails or
anything that might provide protection against
the pelting Democratic votes.
Since 1952 when a young Grosse Pointe at-
torney, John Feikens, and his fellow Citizens
for Eisenhower, wrestled control from Charles
King and the other Taft supporters of the or-
thodox GOP organization, the losing conserva-
tive group which includes a good portion 't
those with time and money for politics, have.
shown little real enthusiasm for the struggles
against Williams.
In truth, the Michigan Republican Party is
flabby, neither the financial nor organiza-
tional arms have any strength. The pity of it
is, they don't even seem interested in exercis-
ing.
New Books at the Library

By SAUL PETT
Associated Press Feature Writer
NEw YORK-I think it's time
we dull old people struck back
at the young intellectual.
I have in mind a particular kind
of young intellectual. I visualize
him lying around his room at col-
lege, for which his father was
gauche enough to borrow the
money.
He wears sandals, khaki pants
and a white T-shirt. His room is
studied disorder. A vigil light
flickering under a Picasso print.
Esoteric jazz records stacked in
the corner. Elsewhere books on
Zen-Buddhism, existentialism. On
the wall, an African mask. On the
floor, no chairs, just Japanese
straw mats.
THIS IS THE young rebel who,
thinks he is history's first rebel.
He has no idea what he's for but
he's against everything positive
-like a decision about what he
will do in life. In his mind, any-
one over 30, who is married, who
has children and a job and a
house and a routine, is, at best,
pitiful; at worst, a soulless, un-
imaginative clod.

If you're a doctor with a general
practice, he thinks you should
have, found a cure for cancer in-
stead of being greedy. If you're a
lawyer, you should have defended
Dreyfus instead of accident cases.
If you're a reporter, you should
have written the great contro-
versial novel instead of covering
the news. If you're a business man,
you're the dullest kind of crawl-
ing, avaricious Babbitt there is.
* * *a
THIS IS THE KIND of young
snob I think we should clobber.
Don't let him intimidate you. Let's
hit him where it hurts. Let him
know he is anything but original.
Let him know you were once a
rebel, too, until you 'ad to start
thinking and living.
Let him know that life seldom
presents such easy black and white
choices. Disabuse him of the idea
that devils with dollars are lurk-
ing in the corners ready to buy
his soul. Suggest to him that he,
too, when he wriggles loose from
the mire of his self-centeredness,
may fall in love and want to get
married and even may want to
support the girl.
Let him know he's distinctly an

rebel, when you've faced the stark
terror of a Deadline or . searched
your soul for the words to fire a
man from his job.
Come back, little rebel, and
make your cracks when you're dry
behind the ears, when you're a
professional. No one is so brave as
the amateur because no one is so
safe.
