DI T en
The twin evils of flu and fear of
final exams were wreaking havoc
throughout the Big Ten this week
as the conference tried to keep up
its accustomed routine.
Everyone has his troubles,
though, and this music dispute
over the radio is not the least of
t im. ASCAP, however, smiled a
benevolent smile on the University
of Wisconsin and gave it permis-
sion to play "On Wisconsin"' and
"Manhattan Beach" by John Phil-
jps Sousa,' both school songs, on
university radio programs. The
American Society of Composers,
Authors and Publishers even went
further and gave a blanket per-.
mission to Wisconsin to use all its
At Indiana tired students took
heart this week with the introduc-
tion of new smaller registration
blanks. The blanks are three-quar-
'tersthe size of the old ones and the
student will only have to sign his
name five times, write his address
foul times and fill out a total of
l20 blanks.
Over at Chicago biggest news
to come out during the week was
the announcement of the proba-
tion of Blackfriars, campus organ-
zXation similar to Mimes, for an
unpaid debt left over from the
production last year. The debt of
$250 is owed to the university de-
Vartment of Building and Grounds.
WBAA, the voice of Purdue, uni-
versity radio station, had its facili-
ties greatly increased during the
week. The station moved from its
old headquarters in the Electrical
Ingineering Building consisting of
three rooms to a new spacious head-
quarters in the Music Hall of twelve
rooms. This includes studios, of-
fices, workshops, storerooms, and
control rooms. The power of the
station has also been increased from
5,000 watts to 50,000 watts.
Happenings from here, there and

Higher Education Is Suppressed
In Poland, Prof. Halecki Says

Higher education in Poland has
been completely and indefinitely de-
stroyed, Prof. Oskar Halecki, former
dean at the University of Warsaw, ,
asserted in an interview yesterday.
"A term of three years was stipu-
lated for the closing of Czechoslo-
vakian universities, but the Germans
have forbidden college activity in Po-
land indefinitely," Professor Halecki
said. "Only technical and primary
schools are permitted, and these are
being restricted to Germans."
Explaining that higher education,
bas not been completely abandoned
by the Polish, he cited the Polish
University in Exile in Paris with its
departments under prominent pro-
fessors as the first attempt to main-
tain the Polish standards of culture.
The spread of the war once again
disrupted the organization.-
"Now it is almost impossible to re-
organize," Professor Halecki de-+
clared. "The few professors who+
have escaped Poland have scattered.
over the world and those who were!

caught in the country are either in!
concentration camps or Siberia."
He cited the Crakow University,
founded in 1364, as a typical instance.
Over 170 professors, including some
of his close friends, were sent to
concentration camps in which ten
percent died within a few months.
Most of this group, he said, had
nothing whatever to do with pol-
Professor Halecki pointed out that
only two Polish groups are carrying
on higher education in the world.
One group of 100 students are study-
ing in Switzerland with the support
of the European Students Fund, and
a medical faculty of Polish profes-
sors has organized classes in London.
Explaining how a few professors
happen to be outside Poland, Pro-
fessor Halecki said that he himself
and most of the professors now in
the United States were by chance
on research tours or were attending
conferences when the war broke out.
After the conquest no more were
allowed to leave, he stated.
