The panel cautioned, however,
that kissing on the first date
may put "too much emphasis on
the physical relationship."
A tradition has been shattered
at Harvard where campus boosters
were saddened last week by the
revelation that the University does
not possess the only trapezoidal
dining hall in America.

A GANG OF surveyors employed
by the Leverett House Civic Im-
provement Society discovered that
the hall was trapeziform in shape
rather than trapezoidal.
"Trapezoidal means like a trape-
zoid, or two sides parallel," ex-
plained a disillusioned spokesman.
"The hall was discovered to be
trapeziform, meaning that none of
the sides are parallel."
"In other words the whole room
is a confused mess," he wailed.
"The only normal thing about it
is that the floor is parallel to them
ceiling and we're not exactly sure
of that."

Within ten years automobiles
may be powered by gas turbine
engines, according to George
Christopher, former president of
the Packard Motor Co.
"While the car of 1959 may not
be powered by atomic energy, it
is quite likely to have under its
hood a small, simple and ex-
tremely economical gas turbine,"
Christopher said in a recent maga-
zine article.
Although two English automo-
bile companies and the Czecho-
slovakians have reported success-
ful utilization of the turbines,
this is the first statement by an
American automotive official on
the possibility of using this type
of engine, according to Prof.
Frank L. Schwartz of the mechnai-
cal engineering dept.
Unlike the conventional auto-
mobile power plant, the gas tur-
bine is not a reciprocating en-
Like Bride's Biscuits
"Pass the biscuits, Mirandy"-
but not the kind they make in Af-
ghanistan. The staff of life pro-
duced there is so tough and leath-
ery that it is used as a plate for
other foods, and pieces of it are
folded to form spoons for eating

gine. It has no moving pistons
and no crankshaft but derives its
energy from tremendous heat and
pressure rather than explosive
"The reciprocating engine has
reached its peak of development
and it is likely that the use of the
new gas turbine will begin with
buses, trucks and other large com-
mercial vehicles rather than pri-
vate automobiles," Prof. Schwartz
Some of the advantages of the
gas turbine are the use of cheaper
fuels, the lack of need for the
shifting of gears, and the eli-
mination of an expensive cooling
system, Prof. Schwartz explained.
Fuel consumption in the gas
turbine engine would be high, but
this problem will be solved by the
introduction of better metals in
the engine, he said.
The space occupied by the gas
turbine engine depends on its posi-
tion in the car, but in all prob-
ability it would be smaller than
the present reciprocating engine.
Another problem involved in
the use of the gas turbine is the
loud noise created by the engine.
"These and many other defects
of the gas turbine engine can be
remedied if only a small part of
the time expended in the develop-
ment of the reciprocating engine
were spent improving the gas tur-
bine," Prof. Schwartz declared.
