Students To Find Pre-Final ;
Relaxation at Bluebook Ball

The traditional "Bluebook Ball"
will take place from 9 p.m. to mid-
night tonight in the Rainbow
Room of the Union.
Beneath a canopy of inspiring
replicas of bluebooks, couples will
dance to the music of Frank Tink-
er in a last spree before delving
into the texts that will supply tht
information for the real thing,,
which will begin next week.
Other decorations will include
a super-sized, bluebook hung be-
hind the bandstand and a series
of blackboards lining the corri-
dors to provide doodling space

for those entertaining academic
thoughts or artistic inclinations.
Also sharing an important part
in the scheme of things will be the
popular faculty evaluation sheets.
This informal dance has for
many years provided relaxation
for study-weary students
caught in the rush preparing
for finals. It marks the official
closing of the Union Ballroom
for the semester.
In keeping with the general
theme of the ball, miniature blue-
books will be given to coeds as fa-

Coed Recounts
College Days
In Denmark
Before she went to Denmark,
the only Scandinavian word Kris-
tine Stevens knew was "skaal";
but she soon found out that, both
in student life and normal life,
that was the most important.
"Not that the Danes consume
unbelievable quantities of hard
beverages-but they're a friendly,
convivial people. They wouldn't
think of letting anyone drink
alone, so they "skaal" with you
every time you raise your glass."
Against the background of such
a people student life in Denmark
at the American Graduate School
is most pleasant. Moreover, it's
academically rewarding, accord-
ing to Miss Stevens who is enrolled
in the school for one year.

nomenal. First, because the Danes
are supremely interested in all
things English and American, in-
cluding the language, although
they sometimes doubt if it's the
same one that they learned in
Secondly, because this is the
first organized batch of Ameri-
can students the country has
ever had and "unwearied by
generationsof clamoring Ameri-
cans before us, people are eager
to accommodate us.
And finally, the inevitable ad-
vantage of possessing dollars, for
which the legal exchange makes
the cost of living about half that
which it is in the United States.
MISS STEVENS finds it amus-
ing to contrast the Danish stu-
dent's life with that of Americans,
particularly American women's
college students.
At the University of Copen-
hagen, there are very few dormi-
tories, pensions and cheap flats
scattered throughout the city
provide most of the living quar-
To make up for their lack of
campus unity, they have one all-
round meeting place and club,
with about 2,000 members, "Stu-
denter Foreningen," where they
gather for lectures, meals,rweekly
dances, and "skaal-ing."

University is still outlined on the
classical university pattern of the
four faculties of philosophy, law,
medicine and theology.
History, and recently mathe-
matics, physical science and
economics have joined the ranks
of "respectable" subjects, but
political science, international
relations and sociology are still
in the future.
Consequently, the American
Graduate School, whose central
them is the social sciences, has
recruited many of its special fac-
ulty from the practical men in the
field, specifically government of-
ficials, business and labor leaders.
WHEN THEY have finished,
these students plan to record their
findings in a book about social,
political and economic Denmark,
a comprehensive subject which no
one has yet bothered to write
