Literary College Plans
Sophomore Test Series

To "assist students in obtain-
ing a better knowledge of them-
selves," the literary college has
set up a testing program for all
second semester sophomores in
the school.
The tests, which will measure
both aptitude and achievement,
will be compulsory and students
taking the examinations will be
excused from classes held at that
Measure Skills
According to Robert M. W. Trav-
ers, Chief Examiner in the Bureau
of Psychological Services, who is
in charge of the program, the
tests will measure thinking skills,

The "thinking" tests will he on
the stLudent's general ability to
read intelligently, and on his
thinking ability in the social stud-
ies and the natural sciences.
Measure Information
The tests measuring present in-
formation will cover the fields of
current social problems, history of
social studies, literature, sciences,
the fine arts and mathematics.
Tie examination on effective-
ness of expression, according to
the commercial testing company
which puts out the tests, "is de-
signed to measure a number of
the elements that influence the
effective use of English including
sentence structure, style, vocabu-
lary and organization."
Areas of Achievement
In a letter to the sophomores
taking the tests, Dean Hayward
Keniston, of the literary college,
said, "the test results will be re-
ported to you in the form of a
chart which will show your
achievement in various areas in
relation to that of other students.
The chart will show your relative
strengths and weaknesses and can
be used in shaping your future ed-
uca tional plans."
In the letter, sophomlores were
told to register for the tests March
13 and 14. Travers explained that
those who had missed the sched-
uled registration dates could re-
port to Rm. 110 in the Rackham
Building for admission cards. He
also said that a small number of
students who have not been no-
tified by letter can probably be
accommodated for the test if
they desire to take it..
The tests will be given in two
sessions on Tuesday, April 15 from
7:50 a.n. to noon and from 1
to 5 p.m. in Hill Auditorium.
Test results will be reported
within a week to the students,
their academic counselors, Dean
Charles H. Peake of the literary
college and to concentration ad-

The drive, which has been sanc-
tioned by the Student Legislature,
is part of a national movement
sponsored by the Brethren Serv-
ice Committee to bring construc-
tive relief to the suffering people
in Europe. Two-year-old heifers
are purchased at a cost of approx-
imately $160, are inoculated and
government-inspected and shipped
through a reputable relief agency
to any designated area or individ-
ual in Europe.
Needy Farmers
Field representatives of the
agency assure the donor that the
heifers will be delivered to needy
farmers. These farmers, when
they receive the animals. promise
to give any extra milk to children
and the heifer calves to other
The national Heifer Project was
the idea of Dan West, Brethren re-

I've got a place to live... for years. This is it.
This wheel chair, supplied-along with the finest of
medical care, food and nursing-by the U. S. A.
It's all mine, free, in exchange for services rendered at
some places I'd rather forget.

It could be a lonesome little home-so lonesome-

But your Red Cross helps keep it cheerful!
The [fed Cross, working under direct supervision of Army, Navy, and Veterans
hospital authorities, brings me music, games, books . .
writes for me the letters that I can't write myself .. .
keeps me in touch with my family. and friends back home...
helps me to dream, to hope...

PLEASE: Keep the American Red Cross visiting
my home. Give, so that the Red C(ross will be able
to help whenever and wherever human beings are in
trouble: in veterans hospitals, in serviceiwn's
camps and base-at home and overseas, in iae
stricken cooniijnlties, in your own nig hborhood.
