SNorthwestern Students Soon
Will See Light, Say Officials

A recent probe of classroom
lighting conditions at North-
western University has brought
action from college officials. The
Daily Northwestern, student news-
paper at the college, launched the
probe, taking readings of illumnia-
tion in various campus buildings
with a light meter. The results of
the probe showed that most class-
rooms were far below minimum il-
lumination standards.
As a result of the investigation
university authorities have prom-
ised to do all they can to remedy
the situation. Buildings and
groundsuofficials saydthat they
were aware of the poor lighting
conditions and will make changes
as soon as possible.

The Ohio College Newspaper As-
sociation has recommended that
students working on college news-
papers be paid or given college
credit for their activities. Most
of the colleges in the association
already comply with this recom-
mendation, and those not com-
plying are expected to follow the
recommendations in the future.
The association also went on rec-
ord as opposing administrative at-
tempts by college officials to dic-
tate policy on student newspapers.
