Effinger Points
To Aids of New
Curricular Plan
'Field of Concentration'
Systen Appeals to 1932
Freshman Class
Helps Specialization
Sees Stimulus to Thought
On Later Field of Study;
Major Was Optional
Better opportunity for each stu-
dent to come into direct contact
with the department in which he is
specializing and stimulus for more
concrete thought as to his later field
of concentration during the first two
years of his college work are the two
outstanding advantages of the new
curricular system of the literary col-
leg eas outlined in an interview with
Dean John R Effinger.
The new "field of concentration"

system is applicable to freshmen in
the literary college entering the Uni-
versity this fall, and first was put
into effect during the year 1931-32.
According to Dean Effinger it is a
system which provides for careful
training during the freshman and
sophomore years preparatory to spe-
cialization in a given field during
the junior and senior years. The
freshman will indicate his particular
interest, and courses will be outlined
for him for his first two years, lay-
ing special stress on those subjects
in which the student is interested.
These programs will be so construct-
ed, however, as to leave margin for
a possible change of concentration
when the student reaches his junior
year, Dean Effinger said.
Formerly Optional
Under the old syestem, to which
members of the classes of 1933 and
1934 are still subject, no concentra-
tion fields or "majors" were selected
at all by an upperclassman, this was
often done without the knowledge of
the department concerned. There
were many students who were ma-
joring in English, for example, who
were not known at all to the English
department, except by individual
members of the faculty.
-Jnder the old system, said Dean
Effinger, election of fields of concen-

tration was wholly optional, and in
many cases accidental. With the
present system, each student will be
required, at the beginning of his
junior year, to choose a definite de-
partment of specialization for the
remainder of his undergraduate
It has been suggested by Dean
Effinger that freshmen students pay
partciular attention to that portion
of the literary college announcement
that forms an index to the various
departments of specialization.
Enrollment of students with ad-,
vanced credit from other collegiate
institutions to date compares favor-
ably with that of other years, de-
clared Dean Effinger. Approximately

500 students with advanced credit
have already been accepted in the
college. Schools from all parts of
the world are, as usual, represented
in this group.
Cost of Vitamin A
Drops Considerably
CLEVELAND, Sept. 19.-(AP)-For
the first time in history; a supply of
the primary concentrate of vitamin
A was assured to the world today at
prices low enough for ordinary medi-
cal practice.
Heretofore, the vitamin was pro-
duced only in such minute quanti-
ties and at such great expense that
only a few months ago it command-

ed a price equivalent to more than
$11,000 a pound.
Revelation of a greater supply and
a more "reasonable" price was made
by the discoverers of a new process
of extraction, Dr. A. F. O. Germann
and his assistant, Dr. Harold M. Bar-
nett, both connected with a ┬░Cleve-
land bio-chemistry laboratory.
Two Bodies Recovered
From St. Mary's Falls
SAULT STE. MARIE, Sept. 19.-
/P)-The bodies of Russell Turner,
Detroit, and Mrs. Margaret Mitchell,
Bay City, were found floating side
by side near a lower lock gate of the
St. Mary's falls canal yesterday.
