MINIATURE AUT O ASSEMBLY PLANTT
ON DISPLAY AT DE SOTO SALES ROOM noTVNT PA

l
t

(Bk; Tm N.T s Service)
MADISON, Wis., March 14-Cul-
minating the most furiously con-
tested action ever brought before
them, the University of Wisconsin
faculty has abolished the compul-
sory pnysical education for " men
by a vote of 97 to 77, and adopted
an amendment setting a "mini-
mum requirement" for women.
Despite the forces drawn up by
the physical education department
in protest against the adoption of
the committee report, the faculty
decided, in the words of one mem-
ber, "that the departrm.ont of phys-
ical education should devote its
talent and efforts to the satisfac-
tion of those undergraduates, grad-
uates, and faculty members who
'desire the opportunity for physical
recreation, and let those students
who don't want it go without."
The repeal takes effect at the
close of the current semester. The
committee at the same time was
requested to conduct further in-
vestigations into the possibility of
optional intramural athletics as a
substitute for the present require-
ment.,
They were also asked to investi-
_gate the effect of the abolition up-
on the Reserve Officers' Training
Corps here. That it would react ad-,
versely to the status of the organ-
ization was definitely felt by var-
ious membersof the faculty. Major
"PontFox, commandant of the local
unit, was present, but did not speak
obn the measure.

It is housed in the new graduate
education building, which is to be
dedicated during a meeting of
prominent educators today a n d
Tuesday, and its task is to analize
in the cold-blooded manner of
science the methods of learning,
opening the way for improvement.
A camera-like machine, several
years in development, measures
a pupil's aptitude for learning by
photographing his eyes as they
traverse lines of reading matte.
The fewer its jumps the more
practiced the eye.

a child not only to show whether
he becomes excited under t h e
ordeal of a classroom test but al-
so what his reactions are to a con-

appreciation of music or drama.
A "tonoscope" gauges the range
of a voice, records it in graph, and
demonstrates its flexibility, making
way for improvement of a monot-
onous voice or widening a range.
Its development for use in teach-
ing music is said by teachers to be
promising.
