Saturday Class
Issue Awaits
Further Action
Will Work Out Programs
For Redistribution Of
Large Sections
Administrative action of the lit-
erary college on the question of com-
pulsory Saturday classes and their
effects was at a standstill today, as
the committee which drew up the
plan recently adopted by the Execu-
tive Committee continued on a proj-
ect for the redistribution of the larger
sections now causing peak loads for
the faculty and congestion of class-
room space at certain hours during
the week.
Prof. Daniel L. Rich, director of
classification, said that while the pro-
gram for the smaller sections would
be worked out by the individual de-
partments concerned, the committee
was evolving a schedule for the class-
es of more than 100 students which
they hoped to present to the faculty
of the Literary College for approval
Dr. Lloyd S. Woodburne, assistant
to Dean Edward H. Kraus of the Lit-
erary College, said that there was no
action to be taken in that office for
some time to come.
Asked what the effect of the meas-
ure would be on the women's hours
for Friday nights, Dean of Women ,
Alice C. Lloyd said that she had not
as yet considered the matter, and that
in all probability no action would be
taken until next fall.
"In any case, consideration of the
question of women's hours would fol-

she explained. "The women's hours
would of course have to match the
hours for the dances."

Local men have been selected by
all three schools to deliver the com-
mencement addresses to the graduat-
ing classes. Dean Clare E. Griffin

Graduate Work Is

Termed Necessary
Expressing a belief that- graduate
work was fast becoming a requisite
for success, Dean Clarence S. Yoak-
um of the Graduate School discussed
post-graduate work with interested
students of the literary college yes-
terday in Angell Hall.
He pointed to statistics he had
made to illustrate the advantages
accruing from graduate work. Of 35
students who had pursued graduate
work from one to two years after ob-
taining their Ph.D. and M.A. degrees,
none had lost their jobs throughout
the depression and, as far as he knew,
none. had suffered- reductions in sal-
ary, he said.
He stated that many graduate stu-
dents were found in administrative
positions in the government, and that
this would be even more prevalent
in the future.
All students who paid the required
membership fee, which now has a
value of two dollars, will receive a re-
fund, according to members of the

Early models may be seen in the

Well-known is the story of the up-
rooted picket fence. Canes, they say,
are symbolic of the time that the old
fence was uprooted to make room for
the expansion of a growing univer-
sity. The picture on the right shows
the campus at about the same time,
