"Some of them are really serious
and I like to see life's rules broken
once in awhile. What the hell .,.
if you don't do it when you're
young, when will you have the
chance?"
Sahl was impressed when a
University student told him of
Kennedy's "steps of the Union"
message in which he challenged
college students to sacrifice part
of their lives for the good of the
country.
Likes Speech
"That's a great idea," com-
mented Sahl with vigor. "I hadn't
heard of it. Why don't they put
things like that in the -papers?
You know, this is how I get
my material . .. talking to people
. . synthesizing what I read and
hear . . . It's hard to find people
to talk to . .. haven't you found
that?"
Committee
Reconsiders
Driving Code
Driving Cpde Revisions Chair-
man Ron Bassey, '61 BAd., re-
ported changes in the interpre-
tation and provisions of the Driv-
ing Code to Student Government
Council Wednesday.
Bassey explained that the com-
mittee had met with Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James
1 A. Lewis, Dean of Men Walter B.
_ Rea, Mark Noffsinger of the Dean
of Men's office, and Karl D.
Streiff, Assistant Dean of Men,
and had formally approved the
following changes in the code:
1. Exemption permits will be
I given to any student who is 21 or
over or is a graduate student with
the equivalent of a bachelor's de-
gree.
2. Participants in major cam-
r pus organizational activities may
be eligible for special permits
upon request to the office of stu-
dent affairs.
3. A parking map showing fa-
cilities for students in the cam-
t pus area will be included in the
next printing of the Driving Code.
This would be in the fall of 1961.
e 4. The need for the inclusion of
e budgets and financial need with
the application for a storage per-
mit has been eliminated.
- 5. In applying for business per-
mits, the need shown may either
be on the basis of finances or ex-
perience. Bassey explained that at
the present time financial need is
the important factor.
The committee is composed of
William Warnock, '61BAd., from
n SGC, Frank Mobley, '61E, of Joint
y Judiciary Council and J o a n
r Thacker, grad., from the Gradu-
ate Student Council.

h Federation of Michigan College
. Women will hold its annual con-
- ference Saturday at the Univer-
e sity.
d The Women's Athletic Asso-
d ciation will host delegations from
Albion College, Wayne State Uni-
versity, Eastern Michigan Univer-
0 sity, Western Michigan Univer-
. sity, Adrian, Hope and Kalamazoo
colleges and Port Huron Jr. Col-
- lege. The purpose of the annual
. conference, held in Ann Arbor for
the first time since 1950, is to
d coordinate women's sports pro-
r grams among state schools and to
y improve recreation and athletic
programs.

Although sometimes despondent,
and at all times critical, Sahl is
not a pessimist. He tells his
audiences that "we are evolving to
a new level of awareness.
Cites Evidence
"The sale of my records, the
fact that you people are here.
tonight, and the fact that the
'silent generation' is no longer
silent, all testify to this.
"I'm working for Hearst, and
Henry Luce quotes me in his
weekly news magazine ... things
are *picking up..
"Next time maybe we won't
have to meet in secret... but we'll
talk about that later."

By RICHARD OSTLING
-A new edition of the two-year-
old literary college course des-
cription booklet is now being
prepared. -
Letters which are going to the.
departments from the office of
Associate Dean James H. Robert-
,sonf request.' information sheets
on courses not in the present
book, and up-to-date information
on those which are. The college
plans to compile a new edition,
once or twice a year.
The book is primarily an objec-
tive supplement to the brief course
paragraphs in the University'
catalog. It lists outlines of sub-
ject mat -N, expected preparation
for the arse, type of classes,
required aterials, reports, tests,
and general course objectives.
Includes General Courses
The description book, although
quite bulky, is limited to intro-
ductory c u r s e s, distribution
courses, and departmental offer-
ings- which are often elected by
non-concentrates.
Since the descriptions are pre-
pared by the people who teach
the courses, they are not like the
"course evaluation" schemes which
have appeared occasionally at*
SQC and elsewhere.

Dean Robertson feels that such
evaluations would be "fun, but
not terribly dependable." He sup-
ports the college's official book
as "preferable to opinions picked
up ,in the shower room or at a
rush party."
The college characteristically
does not impose exact require-
ments on its departments,'so the
format of the descriptions varies.
Some courses have not been' re-
ported at all, although most of
the gaps should be filled after the
new survey.
Available to Public
Nine copies of the present .edi-
tion are available for public use
in the junior-senior counseling
office, and five in the freshman-
sophomore office. The two copies
in the Undergraduate Library
closed reserve section are used
several times a. day.
Prrofessor Lovell
Dies After Illness
Prof. Emeritus Alfred H. Lovell

of 76 in St. Joseph Mercy Hospi-
tal following a brief illness. Prof.
Lovell served continuously until
his retirement in 1954.
