Spurr Speaks to Women's Senate


... leads seminar

The planned year-round opera-
tion at the University will allow
the utilization of facilities,
throughout the year, Prof. Stephen
H. Spurr of the school of natural
resources told the Women's Sen-
ate meeting yesterday.
It does not mean, he stressed,
that students would be forced to
go to school for the whole year,
or that faculty members must
teach for a three semester year.
"The idea was initiated to help
meet the exploding population
problem," he said. Each year a
larger number of students gradu-
ate from high school and each
year the percentage going to col-
lege increases.
Formed In Spring
The commission formed last
spring to discuss this problem
wanted to make the University
available to more students but still
allow diversified programs for the
various -types of students who
come to the University, Prof.
Spurr, executive secretary of the
committee, added.
There are, he explained, two
types of programs which were
considered: the quarter system and
a three' semester plan. The com-
mittee considered both and decid-
ed that a three term plan with a
split summer session would be best
for the vast complex of the Uni-

Peace Study,
The Student Peace Research
Seminar held its first meeting+
yesterday in the recreation room
of the International Center. -
"The seminar will attempt to
explore techniques and concepts
from the behavorial sciences on
specific problems in the interna-
tional arena," Prof. J. David Sing-
er of the Mental Health Research
Institute, leader ,of the seminar,
This is being done by bringing
together people with a wide range
of backgrounds in the physical
and 'social sciences and' merging
this background with knowledge
of past, recent and contemporary
political events, Prof. Singer ex-
plained to the group.
New Knowledge
"We don't want a bi-weekly bull
session," he emphasized. "Every-
time we meet each of you should
have at least a small amount of
new knowledge and ideas to con-
tribute to the group."
"It is a disadvantage to think
of ourselves as miniature policy
makers," Prof. Singer continued.
"What we want to end up with
is a better understanding of how
and why nations make the foreign
policy decisions they do." '
One critical issue the group will
examine is the conditions under
which peace - looks like a better
alternative than potential war.
We would also like to shed light
on variables so policy- makers will
have better information on which
to base their decisions, Prof..
Singer explained.
Influence Policy t,
"We can also examine the de-
gree to which well documentedr
empirical and definite findings
from the academic and scientific
community can influence govern-
mental policy," he said.,
The seminar will meet the first
and third Tuesday of each month.
It is composed of 19 upperclass-
men and graduate students rep-
resenting a wide range of the
social and physical sciences.
"We hope to see applications of
the seminar on ideas for research
on peace and conflict resolution,"
Mrs. Elisa Boulding, founder of
the seminar, told the group.

The conventional tri-mester, as
typified by the University^ of
Pittsburgh, Prof. Spurr said, was
also not suited to the University'
since it was essentially an accel-
erated program and did not make
provisions for an integrated sum-
mer school program.
The modified three semester
plan, which Prof. Spurr said the
commission had recommended, in-
cludes provisions for summer
school and does not have forced
He explained that the three se-
mesters would range from the last
week in August until Christmas,
from after Christmas vacation to
early May with a full spring holi-
day, and from middle May until
late August.
The third term, however, would

be divided into two equal half
terms. This would facilitate some
acceleration by current students
in the May and June section and
the regular summer school clien-
tele in the July and August term.
Prof. Spurr added that the third
term would allow students to have
some acceleration within his pro-
gram but would also give them
some time for vacation.
No Large Capital
The new plan, Prof Spurr em-
phasized, will -have to evolve from
the present conditions. It is pri-
marily designed to make use of
the University plant without the
added expense of a large capital
investment in new buildings.
It will, however, he stressed, in-
volve many new costs and proced-
ures which must be changed and
considered through administrative
procedures during this year. k

Against Flu
Health Service is again offering
anti-flu vaccinations tomorrow.
Students, faculty and other
University employes may receive
these shots at the service between
8 and 11 a.m. and 1 and 4:30 p.m.
Dr. Morley B. Beckett, director
of the Health Service, recommends
that students who have not been
immunized in the last three or
four years, get two shots at least
two weeks apart.
Although the service has im-
munized 3,500 people in the last
two weeks, it will continue this
service by obtaining a new supply
of anti-flu vaccine, Dr. Beckett

Plan Course
On Nietzsche
Nietzsche's thought in modern
literature will be the central
theme of a new college honors
course to be offered next semes-
The course will be taught by
Prof. Ingo E. Seidler of the Ger-
man department.
Prof. Seidler explained that re-
percussions of Nietzsche's thought
will be studied in novels, plays,
and poetry. Besides Nietzsche, the
authors that will be read are
Gide, Valery, Shaw, O'Neill, Rilke,
and Benn. Students who are able
to will read the works in the orig-
inal language.
Students will read each work
not only to discover Nietzsche's
influence, but for its own literary
value, Prof. Seidler added. The
authors covered in the course
bring up again some of the issues'
which Nietzsche first formulated.
In this sense, the works to be
studied areparallels and exten-
than mere echoes, Prof. Seidler
Students in the honors program
with a reading proficiency in a
modern European language will be
eligible to elect this course.
