The possibility of students grad-
ing faculty members is being stud-
ied at the University of Utah. Utah
college officials have been study-
ing the results of similar plans at
other colleges around the nation
and are drawing up plans for a
faculty grading system of their
own. The proposed plan has met
with approval from students, but
several faculty members are a lit-
tle queasy about the idea, accord-
ing to the Utah student newspa-
At the University of Illinois stu-
dents have received a greater
voice in the conduct of student af-
fairs. Three student members
have been named to the faculty
committee on student discipline.
It has also been proposed that a
special committee be set up to co-
ordinate student activities. The
proposed group, including faculty
and student members, would re-
place present conflicting groups
controlling student activities.

Reports from the University of
Saskatchewan, Canada, reveal the
recent eviction of three student
veterans from a school housing
unit has raised a storm of protest.
It appears that the student-vet-
erans personally went to the
kitchen staff of the housing unit
and complained about the food.
Because of the complaint the en-
tire kitchen staff threatened to go
on strike unless the complainingE
students were ousted from the
dormitory. The college authori-
ties ousted the complaining stu-
dents, explaining that they should
have taken the matter through of-
ficial channels instead of going
directly to the kitchen staff.
From nearby University of To-R
ledo comes word that a new course
in Jet Propulsion is being offered.
New rocket power techniques will
be taught to junior and senior en-
gineering students. An extensive
