Describes Boh

A description of a typical Bo-
hemian by a student who called
himself a fraternity man, brought
loud cheers and laughter from the
audience vith its reference to long
beards, green book bags, bulky
shapeless sweaters, and no makeup
for the girls.
One architectural student be-
moaned the poor planning and
design used in the construction of
the buildings on campus. He said
that "with modern metals and
plastics, we still pile one grain of
sand on another to make bricks."
He continued, "even with plastics,
still they use glass, glass, glass;
It's 60,000 years old.",
Criticize Hyde Park
Still some students were not
completely happy and satisfied
with Hyde Park.
One criticism of the event was
offered. "The only reason I came
here was to get away from British
socialism," a student said, "and
what do I get? Leftism!"
Many students seemed pleased
with the affair.
"I think it has a good purpose,
that is, to stimulate thought on
campus," said one. "The whole
thing went over very well."
Linda Greene, '59, chairman of
the rally's planning committee,
extolled the spontaneity of the
event.
Was Pleasantly Surprised
There had been fears that stu-
dents would be unwilling to orate,
once a series of prepared speeches
had concluded, she said.
SGC President Maynard Gold-
man, '59, smiled at criticism of
SGC, and essentially summed up
much of the sentiment of those
who had been criticized through'
the afternoon with the comment,
"they're entitled."

man behavior can be alarmingly
altered, Prof. Richard L. Cutler
of the psychology department said
recently.
At a meeting of the Ann Arbor
Rotary Club. Prof. Cutler indi.
cated that unscrupulous practi-
tioners of such techniques could
break down the fabric of a per-
son's beliefs, as well as destroy
his identity.
Every informed person should
be seriously concerned, for the
abuse of the psychological method
presents a threat, he continued.
However, there is absolutely no
validity to the report that audi-
ences can be influenced by flash-
ing split-second-impulses on mo-
tion picture or television screens
or subliminal perception, Prof.
Cutler reported.
He said it was unfortunate that
so much valuable time had to be
spent studying the claim and pre-
paring rebuttal evidence on the
subject by psychologists,
Plan Suggests
[on g-Termr
Student Loans
A revolutionary loan program
which would allow students up to
60 years to pay for their college
education was offered recently by
a Harvard professor.
Prof. Seymour E. Harris sub-
mitted a paper to the College En-
trance Examination Board pro-
posing that private ,financial in-
stitutions or the federal govern-
ment provide the capital for low-
interest loans which could be re-
paid in 20, 40 or 60 years.
Comparing his program to a
house mortgage, with the mort-
gage on the future eai'ning power
of the graduate, Prof. Harris said
the financial burden would fall
on the student, not the parent.
Prof. Harris reported that the
success of long-term loans at low
rates in use today indicates that
such a plan would work. "M.I.T.
has a terrific loan plan, with only
one per cent default in 25 years,"
he pointed out.
He cited the business school's
program which depends on "moral
obligation" as another instance of
such a plan's effectiveness. The
system should prove to be "the
most effective way of getting tui-
tion," Prof. Harris said.
