Ask Board For
New Pool For
Dr. Bell Announces Plans
For Improved Swimming
Facilities For Women
A proposal to erect a new pool in
the Women's Athletic Association
Building has been submitted to the
Board in Control of Student Athletics
by the Women's Physical Education
Department, according to Dr. Mar-
garet Bell, head of the department.
The new pool would solve the prob-
lem which has existed since the con-
demning of the women's swimming
pool in Barbour Gymnasium early in
December, the plans reveal, and would
eliminate the necessity of improv-
ing the old pool.
The Barbour Gymnasium pool is
nearly 40 years old, and was con-
demned because it did not comply
with state regulations stipulating that
the water must be clear enough to
see the bottom of the pool. Due
to the hardness of Ann Arbor water,
and the lack of a water softener, the
pool was unable to meet this require-
The only other pool open to women
students is the one at the Union, and
according to Dr. Bell the facilities for
women who desire to swim would be
inadequate even if the old pool is
improved to meet the state laws.
In the first place, she pointed out,
the Union pool is available to women
for only a few hours - from 8 to 11
a.m. daily and from 7:30 to 9:30
p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
These hours often dc not fit in with
the schedules of women interested
in swimming, and consequently, Dr.
Bell stated, they have no place to
A second consideration, she con-
tinued, is the fact that the women
taking swimming at the Union pool
must pay 25 cents per swim or buy a
series of 25 tickets for $5. Since many
girls cannot afford this, the lack of
facilities is further aggravated.
No action has been taken on the
department's proposal.

Lectures May Becomes Periods
Of Pure Rest, Or Are They Now?

Guided Reading Superior
To Dictation Method Of
Learning, Survey Shows
As sources of permanent and ef-
fective learning, lectures may make
their future bid for fame solely on
the merit of offering a quiet and
restful preserve for somnolent stu-
dents. At any rate, a group of over
600 college students discovered that
their test results from a guided read-
ing procedure of studying were far
superior to the scores from lecture or
unguided reading methods, according
to a survey conducted by Dr. Edward
B. Greene of the psychology depart-
During guided reading periods the
students were given tests along with
the booklets and asked to answer the
questions. The lecture procedure, al-
though based on a corse of study
specially created for the experiment,
was similar in its main features to
the average college lecture. "Rough-
ly, the gain of the guided reading
method over either of the others was
50 per cent for information items
(where the answer could be deter-
mined from one line of the text) and
over 500 per cent for inference items
(in which a comparison of facts must
be made)," Dr. Greene stated.
Readings Increase Efficiency
The student group which had re-
ceived its information from lectures
was correct in answers on immediate
tests approximately 57 per cent of
the time, while guided reading pro-
cedure raised the efficiency to 83
per cent. For delayed tests the lec-
ture method brought correct answers
totaling 46 per cent of the total; in
the same testing situation, guided
reading was 64 per cent correct.
A wide gap in performance on im-
mediate tests of the inference type
is caused by the two systems of study.
Lecture procedure was 15 per cent
correct, while guided reading brought
an efficiency of 76 per cent. For
delayed tests lecture study dropped
to 10 per cent correct, while guided
reading study'dropped to 62 per cent.
"There is not as much as one chance
in five thousand statistically cal-
culated that any student from the
group tested would do as well after
either lecture or unguided reading, as
after the guided reading perid," Dr.
Greene revealed.
Lectures Handicap Better Students
Further research in the group test-
ed by Dr. Greene revealed the fact
that lectures tended to hold back the
best readers and accelerate the pres-
entation for the slower readers. On
the average good readers move at a
rate of 215 words per minute, while
the slower readers average about 97
words per minute. The normal lec-
turer speaks at a rate of 100 words
per minute, Dr. Greene stated.
"Statistically the chances are about
one in five thousandrthat a student
in the highest quarter of readers
would do as well after one of the
lectures administered as he would
after reading for himself,." Dr. Greene
In a query to students in the high-
est quarter it was discovered that
three quarters of them preferred un-
guided reading to the lecture method.
Five-sixths of the poorer students
indicated a preference for the lec-
tures as a method of presentation,
Dr. Greene pointed out.
The effects and benefits of note-
taking were also determined in this
survey. The investigation showed that
at the average writing rate of 20

took notes were not able to review
them for a delayed test.
Reveal Benefits of Note-Taking
The benefit of notes was revealed
in a situation where students were
allowed to review their notes before
taking a delayed examination. The
average delayed test without the aid
of notes showed approximately 46
per cent correct, and with notes 54
per cent correct. Dr. Greene empha-
sized the fact that the benefit of notes
was more prominent in information
items than inference items, the notes
usually not being clear or complete
enough for this type of examination.
"There is about one chance in five
thousand that any student will do
as well from lecture or unguided read-
ing with the aid of notes as he will
from guided reading," Dr. Greene an-
"These results are fairly conclusive
for the particular students and pres-
entations reported," Dr. Greene stat-
ed, "but they should not be used
as a basis for sweeping generalization
concerning the relative worth of all
lectures and guided study plans."

English Critic
Is Praised By
'Most Notable Example Of
Creative Critic,' Speaks
Here Tomorrow
J. Middleton Murry, English critic,
who will lecture at 4:15 p.m. tomor-
row in Natural Science Auditorium on
the life and work of Katherine Mans-
field, his wife, has been described by
Prof. Clarence D. Thorpe, of the Eng-
lish department as "perhaps the most
notable example among living writ-
ers of what is known as the creative
His effort is to explore fully the
mind of an author and his work and
to make known to his readers the
peculiar qualities he has discovered,
Professor Thorpe declared. "He is in-
terested in biography, but only for
what the facts of a poet'sbor novelist's
life reveal of the inner nature of his
"Mr. Murry's theory of good writ-,
ing, ably set forth in 'The Problem
of Style,' is that success is achieved
through the precise expression of
the peculiar thought and emotions of
an author. In his criticism he at-
tempts to reveal in its uniqueness the
thought and feeling of the writer he
is studying."
Professor Thorpe continued: "Mr.
Murry's studies of Keats have been
unusually discerning, and have done
much to give Keats his proper place
as a poet of depth and seriousness
as opposed to the old tradition that
he was merely a devotee of the sen-
M"When he lectures on Katherine
Mansfield tomorrow, Mr. Murry will
be talking about a gifted young prose
writer who as much as anyone in
English literature resembles Keats in
sensitivity and in complete absorp-
tion in her art."
Discussing Miss Mansfield's work,
Professor Thorpe stated that her
short stories are like poetry in their
concentration and suggestive quality.
"She was a writer who, steadily re-
fusing to be content with surfaces,
exerted her whole force to express the
deepest truths of her subjects," he
went on to say, "and since she was
Mr. Murry's wife, he therefore had
an opportunity to know her genius
given to no one else."
Mr. Murry's criticism has covered
a wide and varied field, including in-
terpretations of D. H. Lawrence,
Blake, and Keats, essays of Shake-
speare and Proust and a constant
stream of articles for literary period-

It Was the Night of the J-op

Dick and Dot were having the time
of their lives. The music was smooth,
the conversatoin was easy, and the
girls were prettier than ever.

But suddenly, Dot missed Dick who
was nowhere to be found. So there

was a bit of sleuthing, our distressed
heroine becoming more angry as time

Sep Us....

Then said Dick: "My sweet, I have
ordered you a J-Hop EXTRA. Will I
have to cancel it?' That was all that
was needed, and now the two are to-
gether and happy again - All was

went on. And when she discovered
him with another girl - Oh!
Dick was really ashamed of himself
for he loved the pretty Dot. She cried
and cried and told him to go away
forever. He was very sad and blue
for there was nothing he could say
that would please her.
