Then,sas the year progresses, the
freshman comes to know more and
more about the SCA. They learn
that it sponsors round-table discus-
sions on such widely divergent topics
as vocational guidance and religion,
economics and politics. They learn
that the SCA sponsors sociology trips
to nearby cities for the purpose of
studying at first hand actual living
conditions of American families. Last
year trips to Toledo, Chicago, and
Detroit were made. Others are
planned this year.
The organization finds time for

many other pursuits. There is a
committee for the study of co-opera-
tives, there is a committee on in-
firmary social work, there is the Fresh
Air Camp each summer where him-
dreds of underprivileged boys spend
several joyous weeks. Lane Hall,
owned by the association, is open at
all times to both men and women
students, and here are found reading
rooms and rooms available for meet-
ings and discussions.
Officers of the SCA for this year,
are: William Wilsnack, '37, president;
Richard Skrede Clark, '37, vice-pres-
ident; Rose Perrin, '37, vice-presi-

secretary; Janet McLoud, '37, corre-

Mr. Tapping stated that for many
years officers of the Alumni Asso-
