Alters Tests
The law school admission test
has been expanded to include3
separate tests of writing ability7
and general background, the exe-
cutive committee of the National
Law School Admission Test Policy
Committee announced yesterday.'
"We are not certain what the
result will be, but certainly giving
these expanded tests will provide
us with ,a better basis for valid
study of qualified candidates for
the Law School," Admissions Of-
ficer of the Law School Prof. Roy
L. Steinheimer said.
Now required by 86 of the na-
tion's law schools, the admissions
tests have been broadened by the
addition of an 80-minute writing
ability test, designed to measure
the student's command of gram-
mar and diction, as well as his
ability to recognize unclear or ver-
bose writing.
The main purpose of the gen-
eral background test is to measure
the student's awareness of the in-
tellectual, and cultural context in
which the law functions.
Presently the law school ad-
mission test occupies a half-day
session; while the new test, slated
to begin in November, will occupy
a full day.

SGC Makes
Three New
Student Government Council
Wednesday night moved to es-
tablish student committees and
meetings to consider year-round
operation, the conference on the
University and proposed new stu-
dent housing.
All motions were sponsored by
Phillip Power, Sec. Power said the
motions were intended to "pro-
vide interested students with the
opportunity to voice their opinions
on important University decisions."
Set Meeting
The motion on year round oper-
ations mandated Council President
Richard Nohl, '62 BAd., to set up
a meeting between the year-round
integrated operation committee
and interested Council members
and students.
The year round integrated oper-
ation committee is a faculty group
appointed by the Regents at their
March meeting.
At the Regents May 15 meeting,
the committee will present its re-
commendations. Power said stu-
dents should consult with the
faculty committee before May 15
He noted that University ad-
ministrators had decided to build
housing units that were radically
different from either Mary Mark-
ley or South Quadrangle, the new-
est residence halls.
"It is important for students to
argue for the kind of residence
halls they want," he said.
Students To Serve
The motion on the Conference
on the University proposes that
three students serve on a com-
mittee of faculty, students and
administrators to implement plans
for the conference.
The proposed conference would
provide for discussion between stu-
dents, faculty and administrator
on the University's major policies
and decisions..
A nominating and interviewing
committee, composed of Power
Mary Wheeler, '61 and Counci
officers, will recommend thre
students at the next Council meet
Nohl announced that petitioning
for the three positions on th
steering committee are now ope
and are available at Council of
fices in the Student Activitie
Building. The petitions must b
returned by 8 p.m. Sunday.
Suggest Planning
Power said, that at the Marc
Regents meeting the Board ha
suggested that a working mode
for the conference should be plan
ned by the proper University agen
cies and submitted to the Re
The motion on new housin
units mandates the Council Pres
ident to set up a meeting betwee
the administration and intereste
Council members and students.
On the student housing motion
Power said, "The planning o
future residence halls is of majo
interest to students, and student
should be given a chance to ex
press their views on what th
most desirable type of residenc
hall living would be."

Hopkins Professor
Asks 'Why Dante'

"You can never have my world,
except by coming back to it; and
if you try to make my world over
into your world, then by that very
act you will lose my world."
So Dante would have said had


wanted to hark back to the time
of Eden.
Not Renaissance
"Thus the Renaissance was not
a renaissance at all," he said. "It
was only a revolution against the
very image of man that Dante

Prof. Charles Singleton of the
humanist studies department at
Johns Hopkins University observ-
ed in his remarks "Why Dante"
as a part of the Italian Unification
Centennial here yesterday.
Prof. Singleton said that to an-
swer "Why Dante" one must first
answer "How Dante." "We use
a method of the Renaissance. We
will go back to Dante by going
behind the Renaissance, just as
Machiavelli and others in the
Renaissance wanted to go back to
the pagan ancients by going be-
hind Dante and the Middle Ages.
Dark Ages Become Light
"To them the period between
the fall of Rome and their own
was the Dark Ages. However were
we to present this concept to
Dante he would see himself not
in a dark age but in a period of
light. The dark age for Dante
would have been that time be-
tween the fall of man and the
salvation through the birth of
Prof. Singleton said that there
was a conflict in distinguishing
between which periods could be
considered light and which dark.
Machiavelli saw Dante's Middle
Ages as dark and wanted to step
around them, going back to the
regal robes and pagan practices
of the ancients.
Dante however deplored the an-
cients and much before them and

Cites Topics
For Panhel
Outgoing Panhellenic Associa-
tion President Barbara Greenberg,
'61, told sorority presidents yes-
terday that the foremost. question
facing Panhel next year is the
elimination of bias which will
come about with education of all
the members of each house.
Miss Greenberg recommended
several topics for future consid-
eration. She thinks houses ought
to discuss the differing needs of
members in various classes.
Discussions on how all houses
can best fulfill their potential and
consideration of the value of
house social functions are also in
order, she said.
Miss Greenberg introduced the
new Panhel President, Susan Stil-
lerman, '62, who was elected be-
fore spring vacation. She will be
installed at League Installation

other Panhel officers will be an-

addition, the nominee should be
an outstanding leader.

... discusses Dante

created and a return to things
He posed the question then
"Why Dante?" Do we wish his
world to be born again in our
time? No. We want only the pos-
sibility of the great experience
that such a work as "The Divine
Comedy" has to offer.
"Dante would have said that
we cannot have his world but only
the vision of it. This ran contrary
to the thoughts of the Renais-
sance. Machiavelli truly wanted to
re-establish the society of the
ancients in his day.
