Prof. Pillsbury
Gives Counsel
For Freshmen
Independeuce Of Thought
Advised For Successful
University Career
Whether or not freshmen entering
the University are to have a success-
ful college career depends largely on
their success in ridding themselves of
one common fault, Prof. Walter B.
Pillsbury of the psychology depart-
ment pointed out in an interview yes-
terday. The average student upon
starting his college courses is still im-
bued with the common high school
attitude of waiting to be told what to
do, of having to be prodded into ac-
tion, Professor Pillsbury said.
"Independent thinking, that is the
key to getting the most out of your
studies with a minimum of effort."
Use your imagination and ingenuity
in preparing your assignments, Pro-
fessor Pillsbury declared, and you will
find that something worthwhile may
be derived from any course no matter
how impractical it may seem.
Instead of reasoning for himself,
the student makes the very common
error of waiting for someone to do it
for him, he said. "Think for yourself."
Thesooner you get over the idea that
your professor is in the classroom to
make you learn, the sooner you will
discover the real purpose of the
University, Professor Pillsbury said.
It is not the purpose of the Univer-
sity to teach you facts, he said, but
to give you the ability to think con-
cisely and to rationalize with greater
clarity any problem which may con-
front you.
"Get started on the right track in
pursuing your studies by preparing
your assignments gaily." It is fatal
to allow your work to accumulate
Professor Pillsbury declared, for not
only does it necessitate greater haste
later but it also destroys the inval-
uable service of classroom discussion
in clearing up difficult points.
A valuable asset to any student is
the ability to organize his material,.
Professor Pillsbury said, for if he can
separate the salient factors from
those of less importance he will find
that much less time is required for
study. To do this the student must
learn to outline, he said, for in so do-
ing he interrelates the most pertinent
facts, thus giving a complete picture
of the siutation
If a freshman, in trying to prepare
his lessons, would apply a few simple
rules of psychology he would find his
work much easier, Professor Pills-
bury remarked. For instance, he
should repeat the material audibly
several times instead of reading it
passively, for thus he not only is con-
centrating his whole attention on the
subject, but he is also actually test-
ing himself by creating the condi-
tionsunder which he is to be ex-
amined, he stated.
Constant repetition is also of the
utmost importance, Professor Pills-
bury believes, for in so doing the stu-
dent impresses the facts again and
again on his memory.

recommended study and planning,

statements that a nation divided in-

was heading toward "totalitarian or
authoritarian or some other kind of
a dangerous national centralized
control." -
He expressed the thought it was
wiser for the United States to spend

Auto Ban Rule
Rigidly Applied,
Dean Maintains
Careful Check Of All Cars
Is Scheduled By Office;
Storage Clause Cited
(Continued from Page 1)
of the Dean of Students this Rul-
ing may be relaxed."
The Automobile Regulation be-
comes effective for the current year
at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, September
27, and all regularly enrolled stu-
dents other than those indicated in
paragraph 7 are requested to avoid
any driving or use of their cars until
permits have been obtained at the
Office of the Dean of Students, Room
2, University Hall.
2. The Automobile Regulation
governs the use of a car as well as
the operation of one; consequently,
it is not permissible for a student to
use his car, or a family owned car,
for social, personal or any other pur-
poses when the7car is driven by any-
one who is not a member of his im-
mediate family.
3. A student receiving permission
to use an automobile must adhere
strictly to the terms of his permit.
Before any driving is done, student
permit tags must be attached to the
state license plates in such a manner
as to insure easy visibility. Any act
of driving without permission from
this office or with permit tags un-
attached will be considered a viola-
tion of the Ruling and will be dis-
ciplined accordingly.
4. All permits must be renewed

when the 1938state license plates are
required or as soon as such plates are
purchased. At that time new sets of
permit tags bearing the current li-
cense number will be issued at no
additional cost to the holder. All
permit tags obtained this fall will
be void as soon as it is unlawful to
drive with 1937 license plates. Per-
mits must likewise be renewed for
those who obtain extended use of the
1937 tags by paying the half year
fee. Hence, after the date upon
which 1938 licenses or half-year ex-
tensions of 19-37 licenses are re-
quired, continued use of old permit
tags will constitute a violation of
the Regulation.
5. Where any appreciable saving
in transportation costs is realized,
students may drive their cars to Ann
Arbor and place them in dead stor-
age until vacation periods. This pro-
vision will not be available to stu-
dents whose homes are relatively
close to the University; for example,
cities within a 150-mile radius of
Ann Arbor. Such an arrangement
when approved will not entitle the
owners of the cars to any especial
consideration with respect to tem-
porary or week-end driving priv-
ileges. Full information on stored
cars, including name and address of
owner and location of storage, should
be reported to this office at the open-
ing of the school year. After that
date cars may not be brought to Ann
Arbor unless the circumstances are
first approved by this office.
6. The operation of a car by an
out-of-town student in and about his
home will not be considered a matter
of concern to University authorities
provided: (a) the car is not driven
through or within the immediate vi-
cinity of Ann Arbor; (b) such driving
does not involve a violation of any
law or driving ordinance.
7. Students within the following
groups may apply for exemption
from the ruling by calling in person
at the Office of the Dean of Stu-
dents and reporting the make, type
and license numbers of their cars:
(a) those who are twenty-six years
of age or older; (b) those who are
enrolled as part-time students and
are receiving credit for not more'than
six hours of academic work in one
semester; (c) those who hold Univer-
sity positions which entitlethem to
the faculty rating of a Teaching As-
sistant or its equivalent.
Students whose applications for
automobile driving privileges have
been accepted and are on file in the
Dean's Office for a week are request-
ed to call for their permit tags with-
out delay.
Also, students who have not ap-
plied for driving permits are urged
to do so at once as a closer check
will be made on all cars since permit
tags have been issued.
