Nimitz Wants Math 'Tougher' Here

Rear Admiral Chester V. Nimitz,
named Commander-in-Chief of the
United States Fleet yesterday, is the
naval official who recently corre-
sponded with Prof. Louis Bredvold
suggesting that American universities
CLAS'SIFIE

"toughen-up" their mathematical re-
quirements.
Laxness in the educational pro-
gram in the nation's colleges is caus-
ing the United States Navy to reject
40 per cent of the university grad-
uates who apply for commissions in
the Navy, Nimitz said.
Then chief of the Bureau of Navi-
gation in Washington, Nimitz claimed
that 75 per cent of the failures in
the study of navigation could be at-
tributed to the lack of an adequate
knowledge of mathematics.
"The Navy depends for its effic-
iency upon trained men," Nimitz
wrote, "but at one training station
it was found necessary to lower the
standards in 50 per cent of the ad-
missions."
He asked that mathematics "so vi-
tal in fire control and other branches
of the naval officer's profession" be
emphasized in the academic curricula
of America's universities.

RevelliT'o Open
Yearly Meeting
Of Band Heads
Campus Conductor Named
By National Chairman;
Will Study Trends
The initial step toward an active
organization of University and college
band conductors will be taken Mon-
,day °'and Tuesday in Chicago when
Prof. William D. Revelli, conductor
of the University bands, opens the
first annual meeting of the Univer-
sity and College Band Conductors'
Associationunder the auspices of the
Music Educators National Conference.
Serving as chairman of this initial
conference through his appointment
by Fowler Smith, national chairman
of the MENC, Professor Revelli also
originated the idea of a band con-
ductors' conference, and expects that
the meetings will prove, invaluable in
advancing concert and marching
band music.
Main purpose of the conference is
to study the relation of the band pro-
gram to modern educational trends.
Other results will be the coordination
of the programs and educational ob-
jectives of college bands and a closer
understanding of the activities and
purposes of concert and marching
bands.
Meetings To Be Held
Meetings will be held on marching
bands, the concert band's place on
the curricula, band as a credited
course in the University, the band
activity calendar and the relation of
the band program to modern edu-
"ational trends.
Serving as chairmen- of the com-
mittees will be such men as Prof.
Raymond Dvorak of the University
of Wisconsin. Prof. Hrold Bachman
of the University of Chicago, Prof.
G. C. Bainum of Northwestern Uni-
versity, Prof. Russell Wiley of the
University of Kansas and Prof. A. A.
Harding of the University of Illinois.
More than 25 conductors from all
over the country have said they will
definitely attend, Professor Revelli
reported, while 38 more have said that
they would probably be there.
Lawyers' Round-Tables
Will Begin In January
Beginning the first week-end after
vacation, a series of open round-
tables on timely topics of the law will
be-given on alternate Saturday after-
noons from Jan. 10 to April 4 in
Hutchins Hall.
The round-tables will be open to
all lawyers who may wish to attend.
Each day's discussion will have a
leakder who will present the introduc-
tory arguments and will thereafter
endeavor to keep the discussion with-
in the bounds of the subject an-
nounocd for the day.
'Separate Rooms' To Open

comedy starring Alan Dinehart and
