Acid Degrees in1
Resource School
Two new curriculum programs.
one leading to a degree in natural
history and the other leading to
a degree in forest recreation, will
begin next year in the natural re-
sources school, it was announced
The curriculum is the first one
of its kind offered in this coun-
try, Prof. Grant W. Sharpe of
the forestry department said. Its
uniqueness lies in its diverse study
program, as opposed to the pres-
ent naturalist who is usually a
specialist in only one field. A stu-
dent majoring in this program will
take courses in the natural re-
sources school, and the botany,
geology and zoology departments
of the literary college.
Plans for the extension of the
program to the graduate level are
The forest recreation curricu-
lum, now offered on the graduate
level, will be offered to under-
graduates and administered by
the forestry department. The only
other college that offers such a
degree is Colorado State Univer-
Unlike the naturalist curricu-
lum, the forest recreation curricu-
lum requires more "people orient-
ed" courses, Sharpe said. The re-
quirements include: 12 hours of
communications, 28 hours of so-
* cial sciences, 8 hours of mathe-
matics and engineering, 8 hours
of biological science, 16 hours of
physical science, 3 hours of land-
scape architecture, 36 hours in
the natural resources school and
22 hours of electives.
The curriculum is "manage-
ment-oriented," Sharpe explained.
Graduates will be qualified to
manage and plan for greater utili-
zation of state and national parks
and other areas used for outdoor
Established by the landscape
architecture and physical educa-
tion departments and the natural
resources school, the program is
instituted to meet the growing
need for recreational planning in
this country, Sharpe said.
Increased leisure time, more
money than "we need for bare es-
sentials," the increase in urban
populaton and better mobility
make it necessary for us to meet
the demands on recreational f a-
cilities, Sharpe said.

Leukemia-Virus Link
"Leukemia in animals is caused by a virus, therefore it is not,
unreasonable to assume that viruses also may cause some forms I
of leukemia in man, particularly childhood leukemia."
This is the hypothesis stated by William H. Murphy of the
Cancer Research Institute which serves as a basis for studies con-
cerning the causes of leukemia.
In a recent article in the "Wall Street Journal," it was stated

that research, concerning the r
leukemia, had been under way R

Dean Allan Smith of the Law
School said that after meeting
with a committee of the objectors
it was decided to still hold the

The students who are objecting
to the May 1 date feel that the
ceremony, which precedes Law
School final examinations, will in-
terfere with studying.
The Law School at the present
time has no separate commence-
ment exercise of its own, but par-
ticipates within the framework
of the University-wide ceremony.,
Smith said that in the future
there may be a separate ceremony
involving only the Law School if
there is sufficient support for such
a program.
At yesterday's meeting, Smith
said, "it was decided to deter-

Funids Support
Continuiationi of
Protest Activties
The University's Faculty-Stu-
dent Committee to Stop the War
in Viet Nam announced yesterday
their plans for a first all-campus
"Pay-In" to be conducted April
8 to 15.
In a report by the Committee
it was explained the "Pay-In"
will give "added impetus and a
chance for greater participation"
in the drive to "help the academic
community rise above its own im-
potence in matters or organized
criticism of unjust policies."
It went on to say "other univer-
sities will be watching us in this
new testimony to our determina-
tion to continue fighting for a
cease-fire and negotiated settle-
ment in Viet Nam."
10 Per Cent
The funds will be used for sup-
port of continued protest activi-
ties. The goal set was one full
-day's pay from 10 per cent of the
University's faculty.
Prof. William A. Gamson of the
sociology department, a spokes-
man for the Committee, said "a
number of faculty have already
made the pledge of a day's pay
and there is a good chance for
success." "Many have been very
generous so far," he said, "and
these will form a good nucleus for
a beginning."
The funds will finance activities
such as sending Committee repre-
sentatives to other campuses that
requestadvice and assistancein
organizing similar activities as
the University's teach-in, Prof.
Julien Gendell of the chemistry
department pointed out.
Gamson added that the funds
would be used also for projects
such as the nation-wide teach-in,
speakers and publicity.
Original Purpose
"The original purposes of the
Committee were not to stop with
the teach-in," Gendell said. "No
one was deluded to think the Viet
Nam war would end by many
people attending an all night
teach-in." "Continued action is
of the greatest importance in such
a protest to emphasize the con-
tinued concern,' he said.
The Committee has to date:
-Organized a teach-in at the
University to protest .American
policy in Viet Nam;
-Helped' initiate similar. pro-
test activities on approximately 48
other campuses;
-Cooperated with civic and re-
