The committee asked that re-'

made "more conspicuous and
more certain." It urged that: 1)

that it be a matter of official pol-

It did say that any change should

qualified members of the teaching

fairly widespread dissatisfaction,"
in the inflexibility of appointment
length, which meant'that ap-
pointment lengths don't fit the,
student's needs, and in the fact
that time is not always available
to good students because of de-
mands by borderline students.
Ideally, the existing quota would
be reduced by as much as one-
half, the committee said.
The committee also made rec-!
ommendations about counseling
details including assembling in-
formation about the courses most
often elected by freshmen and
sophomores. Modifications to the
p r e s e n t preclassification plan
should be discussed, as the pres-1
ent plan puts a heavy demand on
counselors' time during certain
times of the year, the committee
"In view of the dissatisfaction
on the part of counselors, teach-
ers, and students with existibg
procedures for dropping courses,
the committee suggested a special
committee should be asked to
make recommendations for chang-

Of 31 counselors who have re-

three have failed to achieve per-

a dean, another an associate dean.
Four have become department

permanent tenure as professors

Robert Arnove, '59, vice-presi-
dent of the International Students
Association for the last year, was
the first American elected to the
Explaining his interest in work-
ing with foreign students, Arnove
said he came to recognize the
value of foreign students as Indi-
viduals through his duties as
chairman of Student Government
Council's International Coordin-
"We tried to interest various
University organizations in the
formation of foreign student pro-
grams," he said, adding that the
dea for a "week-long world's fair"
grew out of these plans.
First planned last November,
the first University-sponsored In-
ternational Week included "al-
most nothing except a world fair
and a Monte Carlo Ball," accord-
ing to the official.
The institution of the activity,
which represents a growing in-
terest in a better program for for-
eign students, is the result of the
joint plans of several University
organizations including the Union,
League, Panhellenic Association,
Assembly Association, Inter-House
Council, Inter-Fraternity Coun-
cil, University Christian Associa-
tion as well as ISA.
Arnove, who was elected vice-
president of ISA by a large ma-
Jority last year, was instrumental
in amending the constitution to
permit American students to join
"Most foreign students are here
primarily to develop as individuals
and gain experience to take home.
Each student should be given a
chance to properly e v asl u a t e
America for himself," he said.
Mutual interest and responsi-
bility on the parts of both Ameri-
can and foreign students are
necessary for successful interna-
tional living, he said, adding that
the University has 1600 foreign
students from 81 different coun-
tries and cultures - the highest
percentage of any college in the
According to Arnove, the cur-
rent week's program illustrates
the possibility of dynamic ex-
change of values on an interna-,
tional basis and demonstrates the
University's capacity in the area
of world understanding.

PHhiAPPINE DANCE-Four students from the rhilippines demon-
strated a native dance called "Tinikling" as part of the Inter-
national Week program for the residents of Stockwell Hall last
night. As two of the group clapped poles together, Nora Alda and
Tony Anden performed the intricacies of the dance. Later in the
evening, the students attempted to teach the spectators the
steps, which ended in what one participant described as "chaos."
