For 8000-12,000 UniversIty students registration and classifica-
tion will be a lot different next semester.
Starting on Monday the Office of Registration and Records
will put Into operation its new "Advanced Classification Program,"
developed by Edward G. Groesbech, director of the office. The plan
will result in early classification for thousands of students and a
corresponding easing of the registration process.
Undergraduate students meet with their counselors early in
each semester to determine the courses they will take the follow-
ing semester. If they elect one of a hundred odd basic under-
graduate courses which are usually in heavy demand they fill out
full schedule cards which will be forwarded to the registration
Thus, the student will have all his courses scheduled ahead of
time and he will not have to go through the classification room
at Waterman gymnasium during the registration period. However,
he will still have to have his fees assessed and reg
cut his registration time to around ten minutes.
At the registration office the student's entir

entire registration procedure will be done by mail. We would send
all necessary information to the student and he would fill out his
desired program and send It back. We would then send him regis-
tration materials for him to fill out and a fee assessment. He would
then return these to us and the process would be over."
In the registration office is a room where four large boards,
one each for the literary college and the engineering college and
the others divided between the other schools, are mounted. On
these are listed every course in the respective schools. As each
schedule comes in an office worker makes a mark on the card
of the desired course.
Keller emphasized the fact that the new program eliminated
the old alphabetized registration schedules for the people involved.
"Prom now on there should be no compylaints from people who find
themselves registering last for several semesters. Now its first see

He added that a very positive factor in the new program was
the new time schedule made up for next semester which he
characterized as "the firmest one we have had in a long time."

HOUSTON (AP)-.Three high-ranking officials of the Organization
of American States said here last night the OAS will fully support
President John F. Kennedy's blockade of Cuba, even to the point of
using arms if they are called for.
The officials were Dr. Jose A. Mora, secretary general of the OAS,
Dr.- Alberto Zuleta, president of the Council, and Gonzalo Facio, Costa
Rican ambassador to the OAS and to the United States. They were ac-
comlpanied here by Delesseps S. Morrison, United States ambassador

Prof. Kelly, who is on leave

The most publicized of the
Peace Corps' objectives is to aid
peoples i1n other lands to develop
their own resources, Kelly said.
Another objective is to help peo-
ple in other lands find out for
themselves what Americans are
really like; how pluralistic the
United States is and how many
ethnic backgrounds there are.
Conversely, the final objective
of the Peace Corps is to help
Americans find out what the peo-
ple of other countries are like.
