Library Hours Extended
At Yale, U. of Washington

Library officials at Yale andr
the University of Washington<
have extended their service, in7
esponse to student demands.-

Steps Devised
To Strengthen
A series of steps designed to in-1
vigorate political parties has been
proposed by a group of political
experts, members of the American1
Political Science Assrciation.
Prof. John W. Lederle, is one
of the thirteen political scientists
who are seeking a method to
strengthen the two-party system.
THESE MEN, who make up theI
Committee on Political Partiesf
suggested that the Democratic and
Republican national committees'
should each decide in 1952 to re-}
convene in 1954.
"With the present pace of
world events," the committee
predicted, "any platform writ-
ten in 1952 will require revision
in 1954."l
Furthermore, they decided thatl
Party platforms and issues as set
forth at conventions are not
meaningless. "That people are
more concerned about issues than
about personalities is in part in-
dicated by the 1948 election cam-
paign. Public opinion polls re-
vealed that while many voters felt
that Dewey was the stronger per-
sonality, ther nevertheless sup-
ported Truman on issues," Prof.
Lederle said.
* * *
THE COMMITTEE feels that
biennial instead of quadriennial
conventions would "make clear the
continuing importance of expres-
sions of party policy."
Four alternatives to this sug-
gestion were forwarded in the
commnittee's statement:
1) Policy statements by the
President, on behalf of the majori-
ty party;.
2) Policy statements by the na-
tional committees; I
3) The creation of national par-
ty councils to interpret and de-
velop party policy between con-
4) The regular use of regional
conferences in mid-term elections.
BUT, THEY SAID, a national
convention is the only "unques-
Pioned, authentic and legitimate
.Noice of a major political party
under the present order of things.
"Party organization can be im-
proved only by party action," the
political scientists stated finally.
"A decision to hold conventions
again in 1954 is the essential first
These men expect to devote in-
tensive research in the coming
year to the study of all aspects of
conventions in order to complete
a report on their functining and

THE DECISION at Yale was
made after a campaign by the
"News," the student paper there.
The library officials then took a
survey of student study habits and
found that a large percentage of
students stayed at the library until
the last possible minute.
They immediately decided to
* put the extended hours on a
trial basis. If the expected de-
mand materializes, the plan will
be made permanent.
T h e Saturday reopening at
Washington came after pressure
was exerted by the University Sen-
ate, the Organizations Assembly
and several other student groups.
* * *
Saturday closure of the library,
about four months ago. But li-
brary officials discovered that the
step "was not feasable even though
Saturday has always been the
least busy day of the week."
T h e library's director an-
nounced that he has begun a
search in other areas for meth-
ods of saving funds.
Library patronage studies will be
made to insure the justification of
the move and the decision will be
open to further amendments if the
studies show that facilities are not
being utilized on Saturdays.
"Our only interest," the library
director asserted, "is to see that
the library and itsbook collections,
which we consider to be the most
important part of the University,
are of maximum usefulness to
those for whom they are in-

MAJORITY RULES-A sure-fire way to test public opinion on a problem is to ask the people
themselves, and this is precisely what these two University students are doing for a produce design'
class. The problem is to find out which of these designs will be most acceptable to the public.
Here Edward Hutcheson, '52 and Gene Kiddon, '52 are asking Joan Fried, '53 her opinion on these
various box designs. The product design class consists of four members, and in the space of two days
