Poll Discloses That Students
Wish To Know Faculty Better

i

By JAY McCORMICK
The student body wants to see more
of its professors, figures released yes-
terday by the Bureau of Student
)pinion, Lane Hall, local polling agen-
cy, reveal.
On two polls conducted by the
Bureau during last year, percentages
of students who actually visited facul-
ty men in .their homes, and per-
centages of those who wished to do
so showed wide variances, James Vic-
ary, '40, director of the Bureau said.
By the end of the first semester
last year only 19 per cent of a total
campus sample group had visited the
homes of their professors, although
by the close of the second semester
31 per cent had done so. But figures
show that 55 per cent of the total
campus would like to call more fre-
quently at the faculty homes, and
72 per cent of thon doing so already
at the time of the poll would like to
go more frequently.
Voluntary Contacts In Offices
Voluntary student-faculty contacts
seem to take place most of the time
in the faculty men's offices, the
figures indicate. Only 24 per cent
of the total campus group had not
gone on their own accord to the
offices of their professors, and of this
group, only 31 per cent who had not
done so wanted to. Contrasted with
this fairly high achievement-desire
ratio as regards the offices, 51 per
Opera 'Il Seraglio'
To End Run Today
Mozart's "Il Seraglio" or "Abduc-
tion from the Harem" played last
night to a capacity audience in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Performances will be given at 8:30.
p.m. today and tomorrow. Some tic-
kets are still ,available at the the-
atre box office in the League.
Play Production, the School of
Music and the physical education
department have combined to stage
this opera. The orchestra, 25 musi-
cians selected from the University
Symphony Orchestra, is under the
direction of Prof. Thor M. Johnson
of the School of Music.
Tryouts For Alpha Nu
To Be Continued Today
Tryouts for Alpha Nu speeth fra-
ternity, will continue today from
3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Alpha Nu Room,
Angell Hall, according to George
Shepard, '41.
The fraternity as the oldest or-
ganization on campus and the oldest
of its kind in the Midwest is anxious
to obtain fifty members to carry on
its remaining activities of the year.
All men interested are urged to try
out whether they have had speech
training or not.

cent of the students who did not gol
to the homes of faculty members in-
dicated that they would like to #do so.
Male graduate students seem to be
the most popular visitors, the per-
centages grading downward by classes
fairly regularly. Of the graduates{
polled, 28 per cent went to their pro-
fessor's homes, but only 10 per cent
of the freshman group did so. Men
maintain a steady advantage over
women in the social-academic world,
and fraternity and sorority members
are more frequent callers than inde-
pendents, the figures show.
High Scholarship Important
High scholarship also plays an im-
portant role in student visiting, 36
per cent of those reporting a B or
better average answering that they
followed the practice as contrasted
with only 18 per cent of the group
reporting a C average or lower. Cam-
pus leadership; participation in stu-
dent activities also affects the fig-
ures. Finally, the statistics show that
25 per cent of those who frequent beer
gardens and bars visit the homes of
professors.
Music Faculty

Recital unday i
Three members of the faculty of
the §chool of Music and two student

piano, will begin the program by play-
ing Etude, Op. 10, No. 3, Ballade, Op.
47 and two Mazurkas by Chopin. She

kett, of the voice department, who

Ford's "Prayer to Our Lady" and

Wilson, Grad., pianist, will accom-
