HIGHER EDUCATION:
WUS Assists Students
In Worldwide Program

By MARJORIE BRAHMS
In many parts of the world the
struggle to get a college education
is hampered by inadequate food
and housing, lack of books, poor
health conditions, the interference
of government with education, and
the poverty of governments, uni-
versities and individuals.
To combat these conditions, an
international organization called
World University Service has "en-
gaged in a world-wide mutual aid
program directed at helping stu-
dents to help themselves, giving a
hand to the leaders of tomorrow."
WUS was founded in 1919 to
help build up the European univer-
sities destroyed during World War
II. "Today the major goal of WUS
is to build up higher education
facilities throughout the world,
primarily in the underdeveloped
area of Asia, Africa and Latin
America. In this way the people
will be better able to educate them-
selves and will not be forever de-
pendent on the United States and
Russia," Irving Stolberg, WUS
Central Area Regional Executive
said.

set up a cooperative print shop for
printing textbooks.
In carrying out these projects
WUS is a non-partisan, non-poli-
tical organization. "We require for
our work that the education sys-
tem of a country be uncontrolled
by the political system," Stolberg
commented.
"A WUS project must be sup-
ported by both students and ad-
ministration. In Latin America, a
deep heritage of conflict between
the two has blocked our work,"
Stolberg said.
"Self-help and cooperative en-
terprise" is an underlying aim of
WUS. Through aiding the estab-
lishment of student centers, hos-
tels, cafeterias, loan funds and
stores, WUS hopes to alleviate the
expense of an education. Through
joint student-faculty projects such
as building dormitories, WUS im-
plements its aim of self-help.
Bucket Drives
On this campus in the past WUS
has held bucket drives and an auc-
tion to raise funds for its pro-
jects. This year the auction and
bucket drive will be March 12-15.
The goal of the drive is $2,500.
Fifty per cent of the funds was
earmarked by WUS and Student
GovernmentCouncil for the Al-
gerian refugee students.
WUS is nationally and locally
sponsored by United States Na-
tional Student Association, the
National Student Councils of the
Young Men's and Young Women's
Christian Associations, the Na-
tional Student Christian Federa-
tion, B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tions and the National Newman
Club Federation.

Voice Drops
Party Slate
For Election
By RONALD WILTON
The members of Voice Political
Party at their Thursday meeting
decided to endorse individual can-
didates rather than run a party
slate of candidates in the coming
Student Government Council elec-
tion.
Robert Ross, '63, a member of
the party's executive committee,
explained that this endorsement
would not differ in form from that
practiced, for example, by the
Young Democrats or East Quad-
rangle.
"It would involve the party's
making a public statement an-
nouncing the candidates it en-
dorses, running the candidates'
names in the 'Voice Newsletter'
and giving the candidates the op-
tion of putting 'endorsed by Voice
Political Party' on their posters."
Explains Decision
In explaining the decision, Ken-
neth McEldowney, Grad, noted
that 'since the fall of 1960 Voice
has run candidates for SOC.
However, in insuring that Voice
candidates gain council seats, a
more important function has been
neglected. Voice as an educational
group has ceased to exist," he not-

. clinical experiments
tral classification which will in-
clude the various forms of control.
Psychological disturbances are
caused by a faultily-controlled set
of variables in behavior. "It is
necessary to specify what the con-
trol problem is in each case in
order to be meaningful when
speaking of a patient," Sidman
said.
He also noted that not only are
the clinician and experimentalist
related in subject matter but that
they must ask the same type of
questions. "It is wrong for them
to ask difficult questions since they
are both dealing with behavior,"
he explained.
Performing Experiments
The experimentalist supplies the
techniques which the clinician
uses. A large number of people
are not needed in experiments
because if the controls are noted,
a general trend may be observed,
Sidman added.
The experimentalist should ob-
tain data from individuals and ap-
ply it to them, he said. The clini-
cian and experimentalist should
use techniques with species gener-
ality, but each case must be given
consideration and not be discard-
ed or lost in statistics.
Sidman noted that in two ex-
perimental situations, one dealing
with children and the other with
hospital patients, each person was
observed and their behavior and
responses were tabulated.
JGP Changes
Play Tradition
The presentation of the Junior
Girls' Play this spring semester
will mark the end of the produc-
tion of a traditional musical come-
dy by junior women.
Hope Marder, '63, general chair-
man- of the 1962 JGP announced
last week that in future the writ-
ing, acting, direction and produc-
tion of the play will be extended
to include junior men. The activ-
ity will be called "Junior Class
Project."
