'Atom' and Eve
Modern pedagogy claims that
the type of learning acquired in
one course does not carry over into
another.t
But one physics major would
contest this 'theory. As she 'was
taking notes in her philosophy
class (which immediately follows
her physics class), she absent-
mindedly wrote out the name of
Adam, the first man, as "atom."

War Powers
Act Extended
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19-YP)-The
Senate declined to'day to 'extend the
Second War Powers Act more than
six months. rejecting, 31 to 30, the
Judiciary Committee's recommenda-
tion that the extension cover all next
year.
Then, by a v'oice vote, the Senate
1 sent the sixmonth cextension bill back
to the House for consideration of
minor amendments.
The Second War Powers Act in-
eludes authority to ration scarce ar-
ticles.
The House had voted the extension
only until next June 30, and the Sen-
ate backed this up by a one-vote
margin.
