Big eTen
With spring vacation gone with the
wind forrmost schools and the stretch
drive for this semester staring it in
the face, the Big Ten tried every-
thing this week to divert its mind for
academic interests.
Wisconsin, Indiana and Minne-
sota were having their political
troubles. Wisconsin was electing
its £tident board members while
Indiana was at work on the Union
Board. Minnesota is also electing
Union Board members. The Go-
phers are in the midst of a little
eon fusion, however.
It all involves some jurisdictional
dispute, too. It appears some of the

Interviews Today

Students enrolled in ,the Degree
Program for Honors in Liberal Arts
are being offered an opportunity to
pursue specialized study from origi-
nal source materials.
For example, one of the first docu-
ments studied is an Egyptian manu-
script written about 2500 B.C. Anoth-
er early writer, Hippocrates, who
lived about 500 B.C., is studied by the
'group, and compared with the Egyp-
tian writer, with a critical eye to the
progress made in the centuries be-
tween the two.
Approaching the question of the
scientific attitude from another angle,
the group read works on magic and
on religion, and attempted to dis-
tinguish the attitudes exhibited in
these from what is considered the
scientific attitude.
When this material is read directly
from the original writer, one of the
students said, it is felt much more
has been accomplished than when the
facts are obtained second-hand out of
a text, and parroted back on a blue-
book. Here one gets the only real
opportunity to think, she comment-
ed, that she has found in college.
This year's senior tutorial group

in science, which is under Prof. By-
ron Soule, is continuing the work they
began last year, when the develop-
ment of scientific progress was traced
through to Newton. The group has
done a work especially in the physi-
cal sciences this semester, according
to Karl Kessler, '41.
Typical research projects include.
such studies as tracking, down the
evolution of theories of matter, with
accompanying study of the person-
alities of the men involved. Although
the work is primarily a study of the-
oretical science, the group does put its
work into practice, even rigging up1
simple experiments, such as an ex-
periment to illustrate Faraday's laws
of electrolysis.
In their senior year the students
enrolled in these groups write a sen-
ior thesis, on some subject chosen
by themselves and approved by their
tutor. These are read by the board of
tutors, and other faculty members.
At the end of two years, the tutors
recommend those of their students
whom they think should graduate
