Unusual Masquerade Dance
To Be Held By Arch Society

Panhel Sponsors 'Transfer Week'

. 1

The newly-organized Arch So-
ciety is planning a dance to be held
Nov. 19 in the Union which prom-
ises to be one of the most unusual
ever offered on the campus.
The society, formerly a social
group to integrate the student
body of the architecture school,
was reactivated last spring. It is
'Mademoiselle'
Contest Entries
Due Monday
Deadline for the "Mademoiselle"
College Board contest is Monday,
Nov. 1.
All material must be mailed to
the College Board Editor, "Mode-
moiselle," 122 East 42nd Street,
New York 17, N. Y.
Contestants are asked to sub-
mit a report of two typewritten
double-spaced pages on any new
aspect of campus life which would
be of interest to other college stu-
dents.
A snapshot is also required, plus
complete data on college and home
addresses, class year, college ma-
jor and minor. In addition con-
testants are to include information
on other interests and activities
and paid or volunteer positions
held.
Any coed undergraduate in an
accredited college who is available
to work as a Guest Editor from
June 6 to July 1 is eligible to enter
the contest for College Board
members.
Further information on the
contest may be obtained from Miss
Webber at the Bureau of Appoint-
ments, 201 Mason Hall.

their hope that this dance, whicb
is the first of a long list of social
and cultural events on the society's
agenda, will start a much needed
tradition on the University cam-
pus.
Among the organizations col-
laborating with the Arch Society
will be the Gilbert and Sullivan
Society, the Music School, Play
Production,' Modern Dance and
the Ballet groups. Each of these
groups will provide entertainment
in its own field.
THE DANCE will be limited to
the above groups and will be a
semi-formal affair from the neck
down. From the neck up, the most
unusual masks possible will be
worn.
Its official name is "Mas-
querade of the Heads" and it will
be in the form of a Hellzapop-
pin' in that no one will know
what to expect next.
The affair will follow the old
beaux-artes style since it is to be
given primarily by aesthetes. Dec-
orations will be on an abstract,
futuristic theme anid will include
changeable lighting and optical
illustions.

By MARJE SCt2MIDT
Foreigjn students' reactions to
college life in America range from
disliking smoking in class to ador-
ing the cheeseburger and the
malted milk.
Praises are in order for the fac-
ulty-student relationships. Usually
foreign students consider the fac-
ulty member a being to be avoided
and left in superior academic
realmnis-
T'1yllt do not find it so in this
county and find themselves wish-
ing it were easier for them to fall
in w ith somve of our practices.
THE IDEA of having a cup of
coffee with a professor or being
invited to his home is fantastic to
many.
The discovery that if you ven-
ture an independent thought in
class it is not downed because
you have crossed a pet theory is
also greeted with surprise. Thus
the coMIraderie we consider nat-
ural is thought of as one of our
distinrtive features.
Instruction methods are criti-
cized pro and con. Some believe
that there is too much reliance on
cemplehensive textbooks; that
actual learning is destroyed by a
te:ing system that put a price on
memory work.
OTHERS ARE impressed favor-
ably by the amount of ground cov-

ered and the extent: to *w\hich u hiV
ideas are uneau t1ed.
One Europeana was heard to
express that his first unproc-
tored exam ta 'ght him more
about responsibility and trust
than the studying he had done
for it.
One thought touched upon
more often than others was the
swift pace of living that shows
itself in every t.1h,1Lee of campus
life.
MEETING .the deadlines on
term papers, the skillful juggling
of four or five extracurricular ac-
tivities, madly "hitting the books"
at zero hour and even the rapidity
with which we eat were given as
examples.
Dayting falls into a special
category. The consensus on our
American concert of love was
that too often we seem to be suf-
fering from 'romantic' superfi-
cialities played up by movies
and ads, thus losing sight of
more endurng values.
Students from countries where
chaperoned meetings are prevalent
are surprised by the informality
between the sexes here. They often
find themselves feeling emba',
rassed by the lack of restraint in
public.
Academic freedom is stressed
again and again by foreign stu-
dents who are impressed by the
intellectual independence here.
For these students just being able
to get books out of a well-stocked
library is an event worthy of cele-
bration._
