Office Enrolls 4,250 Students
'Virginia Woolf' Arrives
By RICHARD KELLER SIMON
The Office of Registration and
Records has pre-classified 4,250
students, including 3,050 in the
literary college, at the half-way
point in its drive to process 12,000
students by the last day of classes.
All-students, whether pre-classi-
fled or not, will have to go through1
registration next semester in Wat-
erman Gymnasium, Ronald Keller'
and Douglass Woolley, adminis-
trative assistants in the registra-
tion office, stressed.
The University will not be able
to pre-register students as well as
pre-classify them for the next few
semesters because of the necessary
conversions in facilities and oper-
ation, they said. Registration will
continue to serve as, an official
enrollment poll, as it is still the
only way the University can tell
how many students have shown upj
All undergraduates are eligible
to pre-classify, although some de-
partments with inadequate coun-
selIng facilities are keeping the
number from reaching the maxi-
Pre-classification is enabling the
various departments to keep a con-
stant watch on enrollment in
courses and sections through bi-
weekly reports from the registra-
tion office. With this information
they are able to add more sections
A 1000 year-old Hebrew Bible
manuscript has been discovered
in the General Library, Eleazar
Blrnbaum, Near Eastern bibli-
ographer at the University, said
The manuscript contains the
first five books of the Bible, and
was bought originally for $14.
Birnbaum said he made the
discovery about three months
ago while making a census .of
the oriental manuscripts in the
library's rare book room.
After careful study of the
manuscript Birnbaum has de-
tided It was written between
950 and 1000 A.D., probably in
Palestine or Egypt. Birnbaum

speech before specialists in Bib-

"We have no insurmountable
problems. Most important now is
that students are not familiar with
the operating procedures and are
not filling out the new forms cor-
rectly," Woolley said.
Woolley also warned that stu-
dents pre-classifying late cannot
expect to get all of their classes
as originally planned. Most bene-
fits will become apparent in the
future, Keller added.
Students who have pre-classi-
fied and then change their minds

allowed to change for academical-
ly valid reasons, they explained.

Teachers of rhetoric should have
a curriculum, including both Eng-

Wallace of the University of Illi-

master's Club recently.
Prof. Wallace, chairman of the
department of speech and theatre
at Illinois, spoke at the speech
conference section. of the club'
76th annual meeting.
"The purpose should be to pro-
duce teachers of practical dis-
course who in turn are equipped
to educate the 'ready man,' one
who summons ideas in the public
interest as well as in his own,"
Prof. Wallace said.
Such a teacher "could make
the difference between the youth
who as a matter of course talks
readily and habitually of the af-
fairs of the day, the community,
the nation, the world and the
youth whose talk is limited to the
requirements of his trade and pro-
"The substance and materials
of communication must take first
place over form and style. We have

of effective utterance," he assert-

Opens Buildings to Public

The screen was lit up with a
still photograph of a scene from
Ren6 Clair's "A Nous La Liberte"
(Liberty for Us).
Rows of long, smooth and sym-
metrical benches filled the screen.
On one side of each bench, pris-
oners were seated far apart from
each other, working on some kind
of mechanisms while guards were
carefully overseeing the work.
"This is an example of geometric
structures representing constric-
tion," Parker Tyler, poetry, art
and film critic, said in this talk on

Word, Sight and Sound." He was
featured recently as part of the

Voice To Help
In Book Drive
The Executive Committee of
Voice Political Party announced
Sunday that it will co-sponsor a
book drive with Alpha Phi Omega
in May for the United States Peace
Corps project in Ghana.
In other action, Voice noted the
formation of Action Political Par-
ty and expressed hope that "it will
help to define campus issues and
make a positive contribution to
progressive student government."
Tyler said that he felt that "man
was born to dominate the uni-
verse with his mind and not get
lost in mathematical abstractions
and a numb submission to ma-
He placed a special emphasis on
the film -_as an "ideal synthesis
medium" of all the arts.
"It is difficult even on the stage
to use actors, dialogue or mono
logue, music, decor and general
imagery in a truly unified way,"
To illuminate his remarks, he
showed seven short films after his
talk, demonstrating attempts to
achieve such a synthesis.
Tyler later pointed out that he
had shown the audience "some of
the happy and more imaginative
devices used by some experiment-
ing film. makers to give new life
to the synthetic medium."
"Sensuousness of purpose and
originality of means, and above all,
poetic intensity are too likely, in
any medium, to lapse in favor of
mere decoration. Fashionable ab-.
straction and dialogue and music
may become merely 'apt' instead of
being functional elements of the
structure," he said.
Tyler said that he had hoped to
show in his talk and the slides
and films that accompanied it,
that "it does not require enormous
expense or 'pop' ideas to attain
interesting and original expres-
"In a medium weighed down
with a corrosive commercialism, it
is healthy to call upon technical
ingenuity and unconventional an-
gles and means to create some-
thing fresh and really creative in
film," he stressed.
Repeating his thesis that "man
was born to dominate the universe
with his mind," Tyler said that his
discussion pointed to some of the
dangers current in art styles:
oversimplified, geometric "func-
tionalism" and facile dependence
on the smooth plane devoid of
emotional and moral implication.
"The universe is not necessarily
man's mirror. He must make it so,"
The seven films shown were
