40 Prodic'ies At
New Study Plan
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 12-flP)-
Forty of the most brilliant high
school and prep school students en-
tering Temple University from Phila-
delphia and vicinity this year have
been put in an experimental group,
relieved of most of the regular col-
lege student routine.
No definite course of study will
have to be taken by the group; no
credits earned; no marks giver; class
attendance will not be compulsory.
The students are to be left entirely
to their own initiative, bound only
by an honor pledge to co-operate
with the university in making the
plan a success.
The first two years will be devoted
to study of world problems and how
to solve them. The last two years
will be devoted to specialization in
the field of the student's choice.
The 40 students were picked frcm
a field of 300 applicants by means of
a competitive examination.

"Let no one think that we are not
going to have a great many people
depending on unemployment relief
for their existence this winter," Hop-
kins said in giving these figures.
The n e e d y unemployed are go-
ing to be taken care of this winter.
The federal government is not going
to countenance relief on a standard
so low that the needy unemployed
are only a calory or two ahead of
the grim reaper."

Detailed figures are undecided, but

This surplus is estimated at 100,000,-
