He performs everything beneath
bright lights under the closest scrut-
iny of audience representatives.
Third, Dr. Benedict repeats a
seeming violation of a natural law
four times in a form ever-irncreasing
in complexity and at all times, get-
ting the same results. Fourth, he
shows the role of misdirection as
bearing on the psychology of obser-
vation. Lastly, he es what he
calls "original effects" to stress the
uncertainty of relying on conven-
tional "controls" no =matter how
rigidly they are seemingly 'applied.
This lecture has been met with
wild enthusiasm by other collegiate
audiences. A story goes that Prince-
ton boys fought to get into the lec-
ture hall to hear Dr. Benedict. Every-
where, faculty men from schools such
as Stanford, Notre Dame and Cali-
fornia have praised the lecture and
asked that he return.

(Ed. note: This is the first in a series
of' articles explaining student govern-
ment on the campuses of American
universities and colleges).
Student government at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania is character-
ized by the compactness of the gov-
erning unit. Problems of all phases
of student affairs are taken under
consideration by an all-powerful Un-
dergraduate Council composed of reg-
ularly elected members from the
student body-at-large and the heads
of various campus organizations.
Fraternity activities at Pennsyl-
vania are administered by an inter-
fraternity council as they are here,
but actual power in determining regu-
lations and policy for affiliated men
is invested in the Undergraduate
Council. Athletic problems are sub-
jected to study by the Council, as
are plans for all social activities such
as homecoming, class elections and

shown that separate bodies represent-
ing special interests on campus is not
the answer to successfulstudent gov-
ernment. Therefore, the present Unf
dergraduate Council was established
to coordinate the functions of the
smaller and varied organizations.
However, in order to make certain
that existing bodies have a voice in
the Council, its constitution provides
that the membership shall include in
addition to regularly student mem-
bers, the heads of every important
organization on campiis.
With influential students from the
campus newspaper, the fraternity
groups, class presidents, honor society
presidents, the Undergraduate Coun-
cil is assured cooperation from every
group of students on campus.
