'ELCOME MAT OUT:
Counselors' Office Ready for
Discussing Spring Programs
BOB CHAPIN'S CARTOON
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
two articles on the Office of Academ-
ic Counselors. The second article will
appear in The Daily Tuesday.
If there isn't an extra large
"Welcome" mat actually placed
outside the door of the Office of
Academic Counselors tomorrow,
there ought to be.
And altnough the office hopes
to see 4,200 freshmen and sopho-
mores fromi the literary college
tramp across that figurative
"Welcome' mat, it will never he
worn out, for that is the principle
behind this organization.
Set up in its present form eight
years ago, the office, in addition to
its clerical staff, consists of 18
counselors. including the chair-
Prof. Arthur Van Duren has
acted in this capacity for the last
seven years, ever since its first
chairman, now Associate Diean
Erich A. Walter, of the literary
college, left it for his present po-
The immediate project of the
office, according to Prof. Van
Duren, is to help and advise the
freshmen and sophomores in map-
ping out their spring semester pro-
grams, especially as regards elec-
tions. For the last few weeks the
counselors have been discussing
mid-semester grades with these
students, b'it the period from now
until the end of January, to be
interrupted only by Christmas va-
cation, will be taken up with in-
terviewing students on their plans
for the second semester.
SNotices are being sent out to
all freshmen and sophomores in
the literary college, inviting them
to make appointments for election
interviews as soon as possible. If
they take advantage of this op-
portunity now, Van Duren said
yesterday, the office can guarantee
them "a maximum waiting period
of five minutes and all the time
they want for the interview to go
into any pioblem that is troubling
Rowe Attends Meeting
Prof. Kenneth T. Rowe of the
English Department is attending
the National Theatre Conference
inl New York City this week.
Advance copies of the time
schedules fer the spring semester
will be on hand at the office, as
well as orientation test scores,
Health Service records and blue-
prints for each individual student.
Although completing group re-
quirements and concentration pre-
requisites is one important objec-
tive in the student's program for
the first two years, careful con-
sideration i. also given to his abil-
ities and future plans.
Commenting on the frequent ad-
verse criticism directed towards
the Office by students, Van Dur-
en said that "if students will only
take advailtage of the opporunity
offered them to have a long, leis-
urely talk with their counselor
now instead of waiting until the
last hurried minute before regis-
tration, there will be no basis for
"After al," he said, "each coun-
selor has been chosen for this
work because of the sincere inter-
est he has shown in the problem of
students in acquiring a sound edu-
cation and their work is a real
labor of love."
