To Give Talk
Prof. Ralph T. Fisher, of the
University of Illinois history de-
partment, will lecture on Soviet
youth at 4:15 p.m. today in Aud.
A, Angell Hall.
"Soviet Youth: An Historical
Analysis of the Komsomol" is the
topic. The lecture is being present-
ed by the committee on the pro-
gram on Russian studies and the
Prof. Fisher is the author of
"The Komsomol," a book on the
Communist youth union.
His great desire to have more
time to work with students may
result from his notion that to-
day's student is "more serious
minded, more self-sufficient, and
better prepared than were his
father and mother." They are
more interested in assuming their
responsibilities in life, he added.
Remembering back through his
years with the speech department,
Prof. Densmore noted that em-
phasis was largely placed on elo-
cution. Our elementary speech
courses are now based around the
development of practical com-
munication, he said.
Maintaining the importance of
good speech, no matter what pro-
fession a student is planning to
enter, Prof. Densmore advised

NEW YORK - There will be
coeds at New York University up
town beginning in 1959.
Both University College and the
College of Engineering will open
their gates to female freshmen}
and transfer students, the first
women to be enrolled by the arts
college since its founding in 1832
and by the Engineering Day Di-
vision since 1854.
To accommodate the female
students a $4 million dormitory

begin next year on the new co-
educational residence hall, with
completion scheduled for the fall
of 1980. The new dormitory wing
will overlook the Palisades.

STANFORD, Calif. - An out-

ently related to the orange drink
sold at the Stanford-California
game at Stanford University has
recently stricken at least 146 stu-
dents on the California campus.
Only two similar cases were
found at Stanford.
"It was just a matter of chance
that infected batches of the
orange drink were on the Cal side;
thus it was definitely a one-sidedM
epidemic," Dr. George Houck, di-
rector of Stanford He'alth Service
