NO MORE EXCUSES:
Survey Shows Pre-Med
Competition Not So Stiff
By ELLI ROSENTHAL
The recurrent complaint that
pre-med competition makes it im-
possible for most students to do
well in elementary science courses
has been disproven.
Statistics presented in a report
prepared by the Literary College
Conference Sub-committee on In-
troductory Courses show that
there is no basis for this age-old

ZOOLOGY I, traditionally a
bugaboo to the less medically
minded student, was used as a
testing ground. In a typical sec-
tion of nearly four hundred stu-
dents (34 per cent pre-meds), it
was found that the 'C's' were dis-
tributed in about the same pro-
portion as the ratio of pre-meds
to non-concentrates. In the 'A'
and 'B' ranges the non-profession-
als still held a healthy lead,
though the margin was slightly
Besides uncovering the facts
on pre-professional competition,
the committee delved into oth-
er aspects of introductory course
work, using the questionnaire
system to reach nearly two hun-
dred students and faculty mem-
One query directed to professors
tested opinion on the value of
comprehensive exams as a basis
for- exemption from elementary
courses. The faculty generally did
not seem to like the idea. Most
felt that students do not arrive
at college with enough back-
ground to justify such exams.
BUT THERE was a dissenting
voice on the question from the Ro-
mance Languages department.
Such exams are being used as part
of the new two year language pro-
gram there, professors polinted
Most students, on the other
hand, cast their votes in favor of

Two enterprising students, Tim
Green, '53 and Gene Ambo, '53,
have received more than know-
ledge from Prof. Kaplan's course
in communism, fascism and de-
The two students were faced
with a universal difficulty, getting
their notes as comprehensive and
complete as they could in order to
study for a course of this type.
Their solution-a tape recorder.
"OUR ORIGINAL purpose," Am-
bo explained, "was to fill in the
gaps in our notes, in addition to
capturing the pleasant moments
of Prof. Kaplan's excellent deliv-
"We took the tape recorder
home and then weeded out the
salient points," he said. "How-
ever soon everyone was borrow-
ing our notes before we had a
chance to see them ourselves."
The boys decided to seize the
opportunity at hand. Why not'sell
printed copies of the notes to their
classmates the men reasoned?
For several weeks they worked,
transcribing the speeches practi-
cally ver-batum from the record-
er. They then made stencils and
after careful paragraphing, mimio-
graphed the results.
Green and Ambo have spent ap-
proximately 15 hours preparing
each lecture for public use.
"We'll never do it again," Ambo
emphatically stated, "it was too

Mossner's College Days
Spent at Political Meets
In his two years on campus, re-
tiring YD president, Gene Moss-
ner, '52, has been connected with
almost as many organizations as
there were evenings in the week
for him to attend meetings.
Mossner, who came to the Uni-
versity from Bay City Junior Col-
lege in the fall of 1950 has been
President of the Young Democrats

HE HAS also held four differ-

As its last president, he was forc-

cause of lack of campus interest,
but he feels that its function will
not be fulfilled by the Quad gov-

As to political, preferences,
Mossner would like to see the
Democrats draft Harry Truman
for the presidential nomination.
He insists that Truman could
win against Eisenhower.
Kefauver, he says has a pretty
good chance, but he will have a
tough fight. He would favor Ke-
fauver for the nomination if Tru-
man cannot be persuaded, because
his policies come closest to the
Truman Foreign and domestic po-
licies, and because he would prob-
ably be the best man to clean up
