In his communication to the
Regents, Dean S. Atwood of the

Board that "under Prof. Church-

The Regents also reappointed
Prof. George W. Hay as chairman
of the mathematics department
for another five-year term.
Dean Heyns reported that Prof.
Hay "has been instrumental in

Absence of Difficulty
Regent Power also commended
Dean Heyns for his fairness. "Un-

an absence of difficulty in the lit-

that the whole faculty will benefit
by this skill."

Hampers Council Retreat
By MARJORIE BRAHMS
Inadequate attendance and lack
of direction hampered the Stu-
dent Government Council retreat
last week, League President Bea
Nemlaha, '62, reported.
The retreat at the Fresh Air
Camp was originally planned by
Miss Nemlaha and Administrative
Vice-President Robert Ross, '63,
in an attempt to solve "confusion
and conflict" between Council
The planners felt informal dis-
cussion on Council's aims and
present shortcomings would help
understanding between Council
members and speed legislation.

posed of faculty, students and ad-
ministration, was the main topic
of discussion. The consensus
among Council members present
at the retreat was that Council
does not have the best possible
structure, Miss Nemlaha said.
At present there is no con-
tinuity of Council membership
because the Council body is con-
stantly changing. SGC has little
contact with the faculty, admin-
istration and students; it is out-
side the power structure of the
University and thus is ineffective.
Executive Vice-President John
Martin, '62, commented that the
tripartite system would enable
SGC to function more competently
because administrators and fac-
ulty would be able to work with
students on the Council.
"The retreat was disappointing
because of attendance and direc-
tion problems, as well as difficulty
in recognizing common concerns
and a tendency toward partisan-
ship,'' Ross noted.
Miss Nemlaha thought the re-
treat was partially successful be-
cause many questions were brought
up for later consideration.

'U' Scientists Cite Method
Of Studying Hay Fever
Three University meteorologistsv
have developed a means of pre-
dicting how bad the annual hay
fever season will be.
Through the use of weather
records and pollen counts over the
past 16 years, plus the assistance
of a probability theory and a
large computer, they have dis-
covered certain weather factors
which are fairly useful as predic-
tors, they reported at the Ameri-
can Meteorological Society's an-
nual meeting here last month.
Professors Edward Epstein and

A. Nelson Dingle of the engineer-
ing college, and James Harrington,
also of the engineering college,]
say that the predictions may help
hay fever sufferers to plan vaca-E
tions for escape.4
To Enable Predictions
Although hay fever victims,
some 15 per cent of the popula-
tion, are now able to tell fairly
accurately how bad a season will1
be, their means for predicting
other factors, such as the worst
day of the season, haven't yet
been perfected, they claim. E
"Our main drawback for this
and for further refinement of
prediction is the lack of good
data," they note. "As prediction
of the peak date has been poor,
it is better to assume that it
will occur at the end of August."
This date, although usually the
peak of the hay fever season,
could vary by a week either way,
the meteorologists contend.-
In making their predictions, the
three men used the phenology of
ragweed, one of the most powerful
producers of hay fever. (Phen-
ology is the science of relations
between climate and periodic bio-
logical events, e.g., how weather
affects the annual growth of rag-
Their examination showed that
temperature, rainfall and soil
moisture are the key determinants
in ragweed production of pollen,
A warm rainy May and a rela-
tively dry July tend to increase
the concentration of pollen, the
