PROF. DICKINSON:
Stresses Non-Economic
Aspects of Socialism

The economic aspect is not the
most important aspect of social-.
ism, in the opinion of Prof. Clark
Z. Dickinson, of the economics
department.

Ps ych Majors
CrowdField
Entry to Grad School
Doubtful,_Says Club
Members of the Undergraduate
Psychology Society report that
prospective graduate students in
psychology may be unable to gain
admission to Graduate School be-
cause of the increased numbers of
concentrates in the field.
According to Profs. E. L. Walter,
G. A. Satter and E. L. Kelly, all
of the psychology department,
only 30 to 40 students from al-
most 700 applicants will be ad-
mitted to the, school's graduate
program.
While job opportunities have
greatly multiplied, especially in
applied and clinical psychology,
the corresponding increase in the
number of students majoring in
this field has caused the commit-
tee on admissions to accept only
an extremely limited number of
applicants.
The committee has also an-
nounced that preference will be
given to those students who in-
tend to work for their doctor's
degree. Members have suggested
that students make more than
one application to insure being ad-
mitted to some graduate school of
psychology.
Speech Canceled
Because of Illness
Professor C. T. Olmsted, of the
ment, was forced to cancel his
speech last night in the Architec-
ture Auditorium because of ill-
ness.
The talk may be re-scheduled at
a later date.

Prof. Dickinson, who addressed
the Democratic Socialist Club last
night at a meeting at the Union,
said, in discussing the present-day
aspect of socialism, that a Marx-
ian socialist is an ipso facto econ-
omist, but that there. is a limit to
the influence of economics.
PROF. DICKINSON stressed the
prevalence of social and religious
aspects. He said that some men
have made a religion out of Soc-
ialism.
A militaristic set of control, -
he said, as practiced in Soviet
Russia, is not hospitable to the
sort of freedom democratic
Socialism is concerned with.
Prof. Dickinson mentioned that
the British talk about "full em-
ployment," but allow elasticity in
their system. That is, they would
rather have some unemployment
than an excess of authoritarian-
ism.
In' the earlier part of the eve-
ning, Patricia J. Stites, '49ED,
chairman of the Democratic Soc-
ialist Club, announced that plans
have been completed for a speech
