According to Prof. Jones,
George Mason, a Virginia colon-
ist influential in philosophical
and political thought in America
in the early decades of its exis-
tence, first coined the phrase.
It was adopted by Thomas Jef-
ferson in July, 1776, in his draft
of the Declaration of Indepen-
dence. Since then it has found its
way into more than two-thirds of
the state constitutions, Prof. Jones

IN AN ATTEMPT to arrive at a
definition of "happiness," he quot-
ed a diversity of views on the sub-
ject, and then stated that "the
only sensible thing to do is to ap-
plaud that statement of Archbish-
op Wately when he said that hap-
piness is no laughing matter."
If we confine our views to the
notion of private happiness held
by a majority of the committee
which drew up the Declaration
of Independence, we shall have
to infer that in making the pur-
suit of happiness an inalienable
right, they were guaranteeing
the American citizen the ghastly
privilege of pursuing a phantom
and embracing a delusion," Prof.
Jones asserted.
The Harvard English professor
will deliver his second lecture in
the series at 4:15 p.m. today at
Rackham Lecture Hall. The topic
to be presented is entitled "As By
an Invisible Hand," a discourse on
the various definitions of the "pur-
suit of happiness" made by courts
throughout the country.

Class Ranks
Open To All
By Marines
A Marine Platoon Leader's Class,
which in the past has been bound
by a strict quota system, will now
be opened to an almost unlimited
number of men if sufficient in-
terest is shown in the progran,
according to Captain Lester E.
Veigel, of the University's Naval
The course, sponsored by the
Marine Corps, has no specific
class requirements, such as
drills, and is not affiliated with
the ROTC. It is open to all Uni-
versity men except seniors.
UNDER THE Marine Corp's Of-
ficer Procurement Program, the
course requires that a man under-
go two six-week training periods
during two separate summers.
Paris Island, N.C., is the scene
of the first summer camp, at
which the trainee is given the
rank of a corporal. He becomes a
sergeant at the next training'
camp, held at Quantico, Va.
During his stay at college, the
enrollee is deferred from the Se-
lective Service, and upon gradu-
ation from any program he
chooses, he is commissioned in
the Marine Corps.
If called to active duty, the new
officer goes through a special four
month training program, serves
for a total of eight -years-two ac-
tive and three in the reserves.
* * *
"TO GET INTO the course, a
man has only a few requirements
to meet, most of which are rou-
tine," Capt. Veigel pointed out.
"He has to be between 18 and
25 years old at graduation, in good
standing with the University, a
non-veteran, unattached to any
other service organization a n d
must pass a rigid physical exami-
nation. It's the examination that
trips most men up, especially the
eye test," he said.
"And a man can drop out of
the course at any time before re-
ceiving his commission," Capt.
Veigel noted.
For further information about
the training program, interested
men may contact Capt. Veigel at
North Hall.
