Scholastic Average on Campus
Shows Slight Improvement

On Campus
SRA Coffee Hour.. .

IDean Stevenson Cites

Most outstanding gain among
groups was made by men's dormi-
tories where more than 50 per,cent of
the residents were freshmen. There
the point score rose to 2.62 in 1944-
45 from 2.49 in the preceding year.
Second greatest gain was made by
independent men, who raised their
average from 2.49 to 2.59.
The all-men average gained .02
over last year's 2.50, and women
changed their average from 2.60 to
2.61. General sororities improved
their average to 2.54 from 2.60.
"The exclusion of grades earned by
graduate students in dormitories un-
doubtedly accounts for the slightly
lower averages shown for indepen-
dent women (2.59 from 2.60) and up-
perclasswomen's dormitories (2.69
from 2.70)," Registrar Smith stated.
The scholarship chart of all groups
on campus is as follows: upperclass
women's dormitories (2.69), general
sororities (2.64), freshman men's
dormitories (2.62), all women (2.61),
cooperative houses (2.60), and inde-
pendent women (2.59).
Below the all-campus average come
the following: upperclass men's
dormitories (2.55", independent men
(2.54), all men (2.52), general fra-
ternities (2,46), women's supplemen-
tary housing units (2.46), freshman
women's dormitories (2.45), fresh-
man men (2.44), all freshmen (2.41),
and freshman women (2.41).

The discovery of the mode of he-
redity of speech defects and of
harelip and cleft palate is among the
studies now being conducted in the
Heredity Clinic of the University.
The only clinic of its kind in the
country, it serves two purposes: re-
search in human heredity, and pub-
lic service in furnishing advice about
heredity to families, physicans and
others concerned with public welfare.
Research grants from the Horace H.
Rackham School of Graduate Studies
have supported the Clinic since it was
opened five years ago by a group of
University scientists interested in the
factors concerning human heredity.
At the present time, the heredity
of several types of speech defects is
under investigation by Dr. Mary
Jane Lagler, with the cooperation
of the University Speech Clinic. Dr.
Harold F. Falls, who is in charge of
the Clinic, and Dr. Avery R. Test
are studying the heredity of hare-
lip and cleft palate. Dr. Falls is
also. studying various types of in-

herited defects of the eye. His in-
vestigation of one type of anemia
showed that some women have
symptoms of the disease but do not
have anemia themselves, although
they transmit it to about half their
Members of the Clinic hope to con-
tinue their preliminary study of men-
tal deficiency from the coordinated
standpoint of psychology, physiology
and biochemistry, health, heredity
and home and social environment, in
order to further the understanding of
the causes of such a deficiency.
According to Dr. Lee R. Dice,
Director of the Laboratory of Ver-
tebrate Biology of which the Clinic
is a part, the Clinic was greatly
handicapped by the war, and even
now only a part-time staff is doing
the work of the former staff of two
scientists, one doctor and clerical
help. Dr. Dice said that the only
schools giving training in the study
of human heredity are the Univer-
sity of Michigan, Ohio State Uni-
versity and the University of Mine-
In a report published by the Uni-
versity, Dr. Dice and Dr. Falls state,
"There is an urgent need in every
community for advice on human he-
redity, a need that the Clinic is able
to satisfy only in small part and
only for those families able to come
to Ann Arbor. A series of heredity
clinics distributed throughout the
state and provided with properly
trained staffs would be of great serv-
ice to the people. The supplying of
advice to the public on matters af-
fecting human heredity is of vital
concern to the state. In its position
of leadership in the state in matters
affecting human welfare the Univer-
sity should give serious consideration
to possible ways by which advice on
their pcr onal heredity may be made
available to all citizens of Michigan."

Situated as it is in the industrial
heart of the nation, with a well-
equipped staff and valuable collec-
tions of business materials, the school
has a great potentiality, Dean Stev-
enson said.
Senior members of the student
administrative committee, Marion
Swarthout and Ralph Neely, which
heads the school organization, vol-
unteered to give student opinion on
the much discussed subject of the
lack of school facilities.
Both agreed that the greatest dif-
ficulty is lack of classroom and li-
brary space, for, Neely stated, there
are four classrooms in the building
besides the one used only for veter-
ans. Of these, one in the basement
is unfit for use and another will prob-
ably have to be converted into offices.
Classes are already being held in
eight different buildings on campus.
"Furthemore," Miss Swarthout
stated, "163 applications for ad-
mission in the spring term have
been received, mostly from veter-
ans. This will bring the total num-
ber of students to mere than 50,
while the previous peak enrollment
was 233. There seems to be a great
demand for instruction in the field
of business administration, and it
is inappropriate that Michigan stu-
dents should have to go elsewhere
for lack of facilities in their state
"But getting back to the building
itself," Neely continued, "the library
holds about a third as many students
as it should. Many irreplaceable col-
lections, including complete registra-
tion materials for the Securities Ex-
change Commission, corporation rec-
ords and accounting data of the prin-
ciple corporations which cannot be
duplicated, and a set of union-man-
agement contracts, are stored in the
basement for lack of library space,
and are thus difficult for the stu-
dent to secure for use."
The computing rooms have a ca-

pacity of about 20, and the one stu-
dent gathering place, a smoking
room which holds about ten stu-
dents comfortably, must be con-
verted for much needed office
space. Miss Swarthout added that
there was no assembly room in
Tappan Hall, which was built in
"The building," they concluded,
"is inadequate for competent in-
struction and study."

(one-sixth of attendance) would at-
tend the dance who are from out of

3. The $10 ticket price, while high,
is necessary to obtain any of the tops
flight dance bands. It was pointed
out that reverting to a one-night hop
would not help the situation since ap-
proximately seven or eight dollars
would have to be charged. (Only the
price of a third band could be elimi-
nated from the rigid budget, the Com-
mittee stated.)
