rsonal Philosophies
Will Be Subject
at Meeting.

Williamson Will Head
Group in Charge
of Conference.

Whether ideas or ideals are the
biggest assets in achieving suc-
cess will be considered at a parley
on personal philosophies to be
held the second week following
the spring vacation.
Faculty members, including
scientists and scholars who have
achieved a recognized standing,
will gather informally around a
table with interested students and
reveal many interesting facts
about how they view the broad gen-
eral problems of life and happiness.
With a representative cross section
of philosophical thought, including
athiests, free thinkers and the
more orthodox believers, clashing
mentally on questions of work,
idealism, sex, personal happiness,
it is hoped that a hitherto untouch-
ed field of student interest and
opinion will be opened up.
To Be Held in April.
Initiative for the gathering was
begun about a week ago when a
small group of students got togeth-
er and put the question: "the fac-
ulty members give us academic in-
struction in a multitude of the sci-
ences and professions, why can't
they give us some of the intimate
personal ideas which they hold in
support of their theories on how
to live, whatever they may be?"
Headed by Ivan Williamson, '33,
a committee. was chosen to put the
Idea into- concre form. -April 23
and 24 have been set as the dates
for the parley which will probably
be held in the union or the league.
Professors have been interviewed
and many students have already
expressed a keen desire to put the
professors "on the carpet" with re-
gard to their philosophies of life.
Pian Breakfasi.
The first day of the parley, a
Saturday, will see two round table
conferences at 2:30 and 7:30 o'clock
while on the following Sunday
morning a breakfast for those at-
tending will be scheduled for 8:30
Other students on the committee
which is making the plans for the
two-day session include: Wilbur J.
Meyers, '32; George M. Rubenstein,

-Walter Spence of Rutgers scored
the feature triumph of the 26th

300-yard medley race and the 400-
yard swim.
Navy also took two titles while
Yale, who entered the finals with
15 qualifiers, netted one first place
and divided another with Dart-
mouth. Harvard, Brown and Co-
lumbia gained one champion each.
Spence, who competed in the 1928
Olympics for Canada, won the
medley race without great effort
and then came back to capture the
440-yard swim in 5:13.9, clipping
0:08.5 off the naval'academy's pool
For the first time in the history

yard free-style in 2:27.8.
Banfleld of Dartmouth and Fobes
of Yale raced to a dead heat in the
50-yard swim and as officials were
unable to pick the winner, each
was given a right to hold the title
jointly for the coming year. Their
time was 0:24.2.
Stowell of Harvard made the
only other record-breaking per-
formance when he clipped more
than a second off the 150-yard

the preliminaries by Anderson of
Yale. Stowell's time was 1:47.1.
Brown won the 200-yard fresh-

The Alpha Gamma Delta house
operated the "Pig and Whistle,"
complete with trap-door, cards up-

Al Donahue was seen receiving
one of Delta Delta Delta's five-cent

the midway purchasing balloons,
pop-corn, candy, ice cream, and
other indigestibles.
A ten-penny show on the second
floor featured Helen Dooley, pop-
ular campus dancer, and other
singing and dancing celebrities. The
show's popularty caused such a run
on the bank that tickets had to be
collected and sold over again as
rapidly as the "suckers" could dis-
pose of them.
Dancing started at 9:30; the
whole show was over at 12:00. By
then. all comeris had. seen Mosher-
Jordan's bathing beauties and
heard Theta Phi Alpha's earful of

of sheets used in constructing
booths, many co-eds must be sleep-
