Period Examinations
_ _ _E
The results of tests taken by fresh-
men during the Orientation period
were released yesterday by Vice-Pres-
ident C. S. Yoakum. dean of the
Graduate School and director of edu-
cational investigation, showing de-
cided increase over those taken. in
The 1932 edition was taken by 36,-
665 college students throughout the
United States, and the national nor-
mal was 163.72. A recent compilation
of the 1934) test, taken by 40,358 stu-
dents, shows the national norm to be
176. Where the national norm only in-
creased about 12 points, the record
of the freshmen jumped 25 points,
from 187 in 1932 to 212 in 1934. The
examination given to the present
sophomore class is of a definitely dif-
ferent type than that of 1934 and
hence cannot be used as a basis of
Figures on the 1934 test released by
the National Council on Education,
which has sponsored the 1932 and
1934 editions, note that the highest
possible score would be 389. One paper
submitted by a Michigan freshman
carried a grade of 357. Only four pa-
pers out of the entire group were in a
higher division. This mark of 357 tops
all comparative previous records here.
It was reported in the office of C. S.
Yoakum, vice president of the Univer-
sity and director of educational inves-
The test written by the present
freshmen was prepared by L. L. Thur-
stone and Thelma Gwinn Thurstone
of ,the University of Chicago. It con-
sited of five parts: completion of
sentences, arithmetic, artificial lan-
guage, analogies (by figures), and op-
posites. The sponsors of the examina-
tion are emphatic in their statement
that it is of the nature of a measure-
ment to do college work and that no
Intelligence quotient (I.Q.) can be de-
rived therefrom. No allowance for
the chronological development of the
student is made in the Thurstone test
as .is made for orthodox I.Q. tests.
University freshmen also took a

of which were usage, spelling, and vo-

also intended to acquaint the students
with the requirements necessary for
admission to the various professional
schools of the University.
As the speakers for this series Dean
Kraus has procured the services of

SOUTH BEND, March 5- (JP)-
South Bend and Mishawaka police
today hunted for Dorothea Emmons,
aged 17, and Russell Austin, aged 23,
an ex-convict, who is alleged to have
kidnaped the girl as she sat iu an
automobile in front of a grocery store
near the outskirts of South Bend.

Men's boots are low, meant for hard
work, according to Mr. Quimby. The
parka, or blouse, with the fur-lined
hood, is worn by both men and women,
but the female head covering is much
larger, used for the storing of infants,
although just how this is worked, no
one seems to know. Mittens, perfect
for putting on in the dark, have two
thumbs and can oe worn on either
hand. Most all the clothing is of seal-
skin, usually lined with the expensive
The other part of the exhibit con-
sists of implements and utensils used
by the Eskimo. The most peculiar of
uhese is a drill which is worked by
holding it in the teeth. Small ivory
needles are used for sewing, and other
3bjects, such as snuff boxes (even
he Eskimos use snuff), and grave
adornments are made of the walrus'
white tusks.
A model kayak, an Eskimo boat,
constructed by the northern people,
is complete even down to the harpoon.
This has a detachable ivory head
which is fastened to a seal bladder.
When the spear-head strikes the fish
or whale, it detaches from the har-
poon proper, and the bladder, float-
ing in the water, shows where the
hunted object is swimming.
A snow knife, with v'hich the Es-
kimo builds his famed igloos, is an
interesting part of the collection, as
are the ivory sledge runners. Some-
imes, Quimby explained, the Eskimo
merely takes water in his mouth and
spits it on the wooden sled runner,
where it freezes as soon as it strikes
and makes a suitable blade.
A bird bola is also exhibited. This
consists of stones fastened to a stick.
The Eskimo throws the stick at a
bird and the stones,'aif they do not
kill him, entangle him so he cannot
fly. Another hunting weapon, also
used in self-defense or attack, is the
throwing stick. This is a detachable
spear arrangement with which Eski-
mos are said to be very accurate.
Even snow glasses are used by these
quaint people. As no glass is avail-
able,,the glasses consist of a slit made
through wood in such a way as to al-
low great vision with little light.
Tobacco, discovered in America,
went all the way around the world
before it came to icy Greenland. The
Eskimo pipes, made of ivory, resemble
those used in the Orient, as they first
,ame to that country from the far
East. '

The results of a survey of the 1932'
and 1933 graduates were announced
yesterday by Prof. George E. Myers

figures, for out of the unemployed,
there were 31 per cent who were vol-
untarily going on with their studies.
"As nearly as could be determined,"
Professor Myers said, "18 per cent
were not in full time employment who
actually wished such employment." to
Discussing the matter of salaries,
Professor Myers mentioned that the
graduates of the professional schools
were earning a good deal more than
those of the academnic schools.
"The median earnings of the gradu-
ates of the dental school," Professor
Myers said, were between $1,501 and t_
$1,750." The same median was shown
for the teachers who earned their 7.it
master's degree in 1932. "The liter-

they were indifferent and there was
also a large percentage that said that
they had just neglected to vote.
