Registration To
Begin Soon For
Next Semester
uliiug Of Business Office
Provides For Enrollment
Even Though Absent
Registration dates for the second
semester, set for Thursday, Friday
and Saturday, Feb. 8, 9, and 10, were
termed "frankly an experiment" in
the Business office of the University
yesterday.
They will remain fixed for this year
as already set, however, and any stu-
dent who expects to be out of town
over the J-Hop week-end may have
a friend hand in his registration
blank and fees, it was said. Presum-
ably there will be the usual fine for
registering Monday, Feb. 12, or later.
Registration blanks for students in
the literary college will be available
within a short time in the registrar's
office, Room 4, University Hall. If
these are filled out in advance, the
student who wishes to leave town
may find ,a proxy to go through the
registration process for him.
Since fees were formerly paid in
September for the year, officials of
the business office were faced with a
new problem in setting February
registration dates. These may be
changed in future years in the light
of the experiment this year, it was
said.
The cashier's office will be set up
in Barbour Gymnasium during the
three_ registration days under the
same arrangements as for the first
semester. Except for students in the
Law and Medical Schools, who must
pay fees in the cashier's office in
South Wing at the time of regis-
tration and classification in those
units, all students will register in
Barbour Gymnasium on the dates
specified.
Hours for registration and payment
of fees will be 8 to 11:30 a. m. and
1 to 3:30 p. m Thursday and Fri-
day, and 8 a. m. to 12 noon Satur-
day

4 Wisconsin Man
UnloadsHimself'Of,
A Few Real Ideas
(By Intercollegiate Press)
CLEVELAND, Jan. 8. - In an ad-
dress here Prof. John Guy Fowlkes
of the University of Wisconsin un-
loaded himself of comments of an-
cient educational beliefs and prac-
tices. Among his conclusions were:
Until we adapt what we know
about breedingofhumanity, society
will not make much real progress.
Let school children learn some-
thing about the rottenness of gov-
ernment. Otherwise, how will they
know what to correct when they grow
up?
It is a shameful fact that profes-
sional educators have only been sub-
mitting to commercial pressure and
not thinking independently , about
what educational changes should be
made. That era is at an end.
The future will see an abandon-
ment of the stupid system of putting
education on a chronological age
base. The chances are that education
will be extended up and down, but
not stop at the same age for all
pupils.

It's Playine At Snowy Lake Placid For Femninine Skiers

Despite sub-zero blasts at Lake Placid, N. Y., many winter sports enthusiasts have flocked to this
famous resort, where there is ample snow and plenty of fun. Doris White (left) of Greenwich, Conn., and

Religious Head
Urges Students
To Consult Him
Dr. Blakeman Is Holding
Personal Conferences In
Capacity Of Counselor
"As yet few students know that
there is such an office as a Counselor
in Religious Education on this cam-
pus," stated Dr. E. W. Blakeman yes-
terday in discussing the position to
which he was recently appointed. "As
a result there have been few calls.
However, religion is a live and perti-
nent subject and I am sure that as
students realize the accessibility of
such a service there will be plenty
of work for my office to do."
Dr. Blakeman's office is tempora-
rily in Room 9 University Hall, where
he holds regular daily student inter-
view hours of from 11 a. m. to 12
noon and from 3 to 5 p. m. Dr. Blake-
man welcomes any student who has
any type of a personal problem he
wishes to discuss.
"But what is religion and why
should it interest me?" is the attitude
of many students, according to Dr.
Blakeman. "They come to think of
religion as synonomous with orders,
creed, and sect. This is not a true
idea of what religion is and it is a
condition, part of which it is my
duty to correct."
The counselor pointed out that
according to a recent study made in
seven colleges and universities, inter-
views with 1,810 students showed that
17 per cent of the personal problems
of these students have their root in
religion or are related to religious
concepts.
Dr. Blakeman indicated two
groups, interest in which would take
practically all of a counselor's time,
if the students took advantage of
the service.
First, there is the problem of the
entering freshmen who have many
problems of spiritual as well as in-
tellectual and social adjustment. Sec-
ond, there is the problem of the 1,400
transfer students, half of whom have
come from religious colleges and pre-
sumably have tastes and interests
which are worth conserving. As they
enter the classroom and become ab-
sorbed in the more critical and fuller
life of a large University, their whole
range of interests comes up for re-
view. "To aid in this appraisal and
to dignify the struggle for unity and
personality is our job," Dr. Blakeman
said.
"Eventually," he said, "We will dis-
cover the major problems, mobilize
faculty persons in different colleges,
and attempt to develop a good na-
tured appreciation of s u p r e m e
values."

COLUMBUS, O., Jan. 8.-- (Spe-
cial) - Open revolt against Ohio
State's 60-year-old compulsory R. 0.
T. C. rule flared upon the university
campus here last week when five
students, who were later joined by
11 others, were threatened with ex-
pulsion by President Rightmire un-
less they enrolled for military train-
ing. Final action upon the matter
has been postponed for a number of
days to give the students time to
"change their minds" and enroll.
The five students, who have re-
ceived the support of a group of Co-
lumbus ministers intent upon making
military training optional, are Ed-
ward Lepon, Richard Baumgardner,
David Telfair, Donald Leach, and
Carl Sutley. They have chosen
Charles Hart, a "conscientious objec-
toor" who was excused from drill a
year ago by Dr. Rightmire, as their
spokesman.
The students called an "indigna-
tion meeting" against the university
authorities at which they said they
preferred dismissal to mandatory
drill. Hart was excused from military
work because, he said, his religious
faith forbade him to shoulder arms.
Ohio State, always a battleground
between pro and anti compulsory
R. O. T. C. factions, has enforced
military drill for all male students
since 1888 when Rutherford B. Hayes,
19th president of the United States
and at that time a member of the
Board of Trustees, decided that "all
Real Police Doggie
Is Calmed Down By

students shall receive military tramn-
ing."
Compulsory military training in
the University started in 1873. but
the State legislature placed it upon
an "optional" basis for a time.
Muttering Moguls Pick
Preposterous Person
An undercurrent of secret mutter-

Gargoyle yesterday meant one and

No. 10 had been selected by the club
moguls.
Reporters were able to get no fur-
ther information than that the sub-
ject had been chosen and members
of the Preposterous People Club were
dusting off a new pledge pin.
President Robert A. Saltzstein con-
tinued the air of mystery by remain-
ing noncommittal to all questions
asked. He was discovered later in the
afternoon, however, deftly whittling
a paddle out of a barrel stave.

In a recent number of the Amer-
ican Medical Journal statistics were
quoted to show that the general
health of college students was falling

grew worse during the years spent in
school.

Water, Boiling
Without Heat,
Creates Danoer
Tests At M.I.T. Show That
Cold Water In Pipe Of-
ten Is Partly Steam

i

Fads And Frills Of 1934 School
Defended By W. D. Henderson

Bluecoats'

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 8.- -()
- Cold steam, an enemy to power
production instead of a servant, is
revealed in a glass-windowed water
pipe at Massachusetts Institute of
Technology.
The window shows that cold water,
running through a pipe at high ve-
locity, is not always all water. Part
of it may be steam, formed without
heat, as cold as the water but able
to drive holes in the hardest metals
yet devised for utilizing water power.
Super Speed Trouble
The window pipe was set up to
study cavitation, a phenomenon
causing erosion of metal by water
when it runs around a corner at high
speed. Cavitation attacks the blades
of turbines and the propellers of fast
naval destroyers. It does not bother
other shipping, for it is a super-speed
trouble, a threat to blades which
move too fast.
The water flows at speeds of 50
to 60 miles an hour in the window
pipe, driven by a centrifugal pump.
As long as the flow is in a straight
line this speed does no harm. But
when the water passes over a hump
in the pipe a white plume forms, not
at the hump but some distance down
stream.
Photographs Taken
The plume is cold steam. How it
gathers is shown by "Tech's" high-
speed camera, which can take 2,000
pictures a second. As the water passes
over the hump its particles separate,
like the boy tossed off at the end of
the line in a game of crack-the-
whip.
SENIOR EDUCATION DUES
Senior class dues for education stu-
dents may be paid in the University
High School at the entrance of the
Elementary School. Officers will be
stationed there daily from 2 to 3
p. m. to collect the 50 cent dues.
Students are urged to respond as
soon as possible in order that grad-
uation will not be hindered, said Hil-
ton Ponto, '34, class treasurer.

"The New School and the PTA"
was the topic of the radio address
given by Dr. William D. Henderson,
director of the Extension Division,
Sunday afternoon, as the parent
program re-opened the University
series. Sunday programs will go on
the air over station WJR at 2:30
p. in., instead of at 6:30 p. m. as they
formerly did.
"Due to the depression and the
consequent breakdown of our tax
system, education in this country is
today in a more or less disorganized
and chaotic condition," Dr. Hender-
son stated. "Our teaching force has
been reduced,, teaching loads have
been increased, school terms have
been shortened, and important sub-
jects have been eliminated."
Pointing out the detriment to the,
student, Dr. Henderson defended the
so-called "fads and frills" of edu-
cation, declaring that some people
objected to such sanitary necessities
as drinking fountains.
In discussing the "New School,"
Dr. Henderson first stressed the im-
portance of efficient teachers, and an
economic administration of school
affairs. In relation to the school
curriculum proper, he held the opin-
ion that our present grading sys-
tem is far too strict and that it lacks
the flexibility necessary to the re-
quirements of each individual child.
"I think that we have too many
12-grade schools," the speaker said.
"This does not mean that I would
cut out the 12-grade school, but it
simply means fewer schools in which
the upper two grades are offered. In
this day of easy transportation, there
is no reason why every hamlet should
have a 12-grade school."
Great attention should be paid to
the first 10-grades, because it would
carry the child through the legal age
at which he has t~o be in school in
Aged Parents Edit Letter

most states, Dr. Henderson declared.
This school should be a cross between
a junior high school and an old-
fashioned district school, he said,
and should teach five subjects
through the entire 10 years. These
subjects should include reading, writ-
ing, English, arithmetic, and health.
General science, sociology, and the
cultural subjects could be included,
he said.
Dr. Henderson advocated a strong-
er PTA association in every school.
"This is a time of crisis for our
schools. It is a time when the friends
of education must stand together,"
he said, "for in union there is
strength."
Dr. Fredrick Rand Rogers, dean of
Boston University's department of
health, declared that the beautiful
chorus girl is almost certain to be
intelligent; that catch phrases like
"Beautiful but dumb" are merely su-
perstitions and that in the long run
good things tend to go together

Coaxing

MONTGOMERY, Ala., Jan. 8. -(P)
- A stray police dog bent on making
trouble seemed to prefer just what
his name implied when it came to
choosing associates.
"Come quick! We're in the house
and can't get out, and the rest of
us are out and can't get in," was the
frantic call that came to police head-
quarters by telephone.
Two officers hurried forth and
found the great dog blocking the
doorway of an apartment house.
"Nice doggie. Come along, doggie,"
theyicoaxed, but doggie answered
them with growls and bared teeth.
"Aw, can't you see we're police-
men?" they cried in exasperation.
The words seemed to work like
magic. The dog wagged his tail in
friendly manner and leaped into the
back seat of their automobile.
They took him to headquarters
and, having made friends with all the
policemen, he refuses to leave.
