in order to bring the alumni near-

vantages. Recently, a small grantr

ardent supporters of the plan. __
The University college idea,
whereby entering students for all ;
colleges and schools on campus
attended a single department for
their first two years of residence
before passing into the professional
departments, brought a storm of
opposition from the faculty. Both
the faculties of the Engineering
college and the literary college
voted down the idea, but Presi-
dent Little took the matter before
the Regents and it was passed
The plan was supposed to begin
operation next fall, but in his res-
ignation, Little asks that the pro-
ject be dropped except if the deans
or his successor sec fit to carry Qn.
This last fall, he asked co-opera-
tion of fraternities on campus in
a liquor investigation to clear up
charges of excessive drinking in
the student body. Later, he ap-
pealed for Federal aid, which:
brought down more criticism from
certain student groups and out-
side interests. The matter was si-
lenced for a while, but it is believed
that Federal agents did visit the
campus and make surveys as plan-
ned, upon which university officials
could act.

or Fame for a Day
THrY didn't expect him to make a point. But
he made a free throw. And that free throw was
the cause of their winning the game. The crowd
went wild and more girls wanted to put their arms
around Dusty's neck than he could accommodate.
And after the game Dusty had a few team-
mates around to his rooms. He served them
"Canada Dry." It made a big hit-even bigger
than winning the basketball game. More fame!
