By MICHAEL HARRAH,
The Air Science Department was
visibly shaken from long-standing
tradition last semester, when the
University saw two coeds become
the first women ever to take an
AFROTC course here.
Patricia S. Kidwell, '63E, and
Carolyn A. Weiss, '63E, set a pre-
cedent as they enrolled in Air
Science 101, a basic course in the
AFROTC curriculum, last fall.
This semester they are studying
Air Science 102.
Lt. Col. Alfred D. Belsma, Chair-
man of the Air Science Depart-
ment, said although it was quite
unexpected, it is working out well.
He pointed out that there was no
longer an ROTC course aimed at
commissioning women, but that
any credits received in this cur-
riculum could undoubtedly be ap-
plied toward the OTP (Officer's
Training Program).
"On a whole the cadets have
accepted this," Belsma said.
"There are some of course who
feel that their rights have been
infringed upon, this being one of
the last strongholds of male su-
premacy."
The girls are quite delighted
with their unusual program. "Most
people find it surprising, but not
unbelievable," Carolyn says. "Of
course a point is a ready made
because we are among the few
women engineering students -
people are surprised but they like
the idea of having us around."
"Strictly out of curiosity," Pa-
tricia says, explaining her unex-
pected enrollment, "I wrote a
letter to the Secretary of the Air
Force asking if I could take AF-
ROTC courses.
"I didn't tell anyone because I
didn't want people laughing if the
letter came back saying 'What

are you trying to pull, young lady?
You know you can't take ROTC
courses.'" However, the reply was
in her favor.
The' effect on the incumbent
cadets in North Hall was mixed,
however. Recalling her first day of
classes, Patricia says: "When I
walked in, one of the fellows asked
me point blank-'What are you
doing in North Hall?"
"Then Captain Smith (the in-
structor) walked in and said,
'Good afternoon, gentle-----LADY
and gentlemen.' The arrangement
would definitely take some adjust-
ment.
The girls find there have been
no special arrangements made for
them however. They have at-
tended a number of drill sessions
and they are treated simply as
one of the cadets.
Carolyn, an honor student, and
Patricia, a Regents Alumni Schol-
arship winner, seem quite satisfied
with the arrangement.
Both girls are ,Aeronautical En-'
gineering students and the Air
Science program gives them valu-
able background which would not
otherwise be immediately avail,-
able. They are both planning to
go into aeronautical research and
development in the WAF (Wom-
en's Air Force).
Lt. Col. Belsma said he - was
encouraged by this setup. He
pointed out that such a program
of study was to the decided ad-
vantage of an engineering majar.
He said that he endorsed this
type of interest on the part of
the girls and said he believed his
successor next year would be
equally as enthusiastic about it.
PIC To Hold
Open House
The Political Issues Club will
hold a discussion with candidates
in the Student Government Coun-
cil elections at 9 p.m. today in
Rm. 3D of the Union.
The discussion will be moderated
by Al Haber, '60, and Alan Dragoo,
'60, and will primarily focus on
the candidates' stands on the is-
sues of discrimination in student
organizations.
The discussion will be open to
the public.

Campus United Nations will dis-
cuss "Aid to Emerging Nations
and Disarmament" in the mock
session Saturday, March 19.
Thirty delegations engaged in a
two-hour wrangle cutting down
topics Sunday afternoon. With
a recommendation from the topic
committee "Aid to Emerging Na-
tions" was chosen with only one
"nay.'
Finding in the course of discus-
sion that international rather
than bi-country issues were more
popular, Kashmir and Palestine
were dropped. With the field nar-
rowed down to "The Admission of
Red China to the UN" and Dis-
armament, a suggestion of "Aboli-
tion of the Death Penalty" was
tossed..in,
Debate centered on the appro-
priateness of the Red China topic
for a campus audience. "We have
no delegate from Red China to
giv. their side and there is only
one question to speak about, rec-
ognition or not," one advocate of
disarmament said.
A UAR delegate stated that the
purpose of the UN was to awaken
and educate the public," while an-
other asserted that the student
body could contribute :nore origi-
nal ideas to the disarmament
theme. The last five votes "or
disarmament broke the tie.
A foreshadowing of the coming
debate on the UN floor came when
a delegate from Belgium mvn-
tioned that "Disarmament and aid
are closely linked" as the money
from one could go to th. other.
Mlichigras .
The Michigras Mass Meeting
will be held at 7:30 tonight in the

neering to publicity promoiions."
