druggist suggested.
The de-socialization of the
University will be fully com-
pleted by 1957, said President
Thatcher. At that time com-
plete segregation of sexes in
classes will be a reality. Serious
consideration is being given the
suggestion of a prominent re-
gent to build a separate campus
for women north of Chelsea.
When the Five Year Plan is ful-
filled, women in the dorms will
see visitors only through screens
of semi-transparent, double
strengh, wire re-inforced plastic.
The Dean of Women has already
announced new curfew hours of
7:30 every night.
A COMMITTEE of eight profes-
sors from the business administra-
tion school have reportedly been
dickering to purchase land for a
new football stadium, for women
only. It has been rumored that
several fraternity houses in the
Hill and Oxford Streets vicinity
will be condemned to make way for
the proposed athletic plant.
According to President
Thatcher, the new regulation is

vation. "The anti-social trend
has been developing here for
several years, particularly in the
Quads," lie said.
Prof. Heinrich Schweinkopt of
the psychology department, an ex-
pert in Freudian tendencies, dis-
approved of the University's ac-
tion. He warned, "Mit der students

He clarified his diagnosis by ex-
plaining, "In odder vords, dey are
becomink nogoodniks."
Student reaction to the new
regulation was, as usual, fiery.
Whe n asked if he would be bo-
thered by the ban on dates, one
student, Oswald "T" Square, '54E,
replied, "Who, me? Dates? Hmm .

"Vere vas I?" he stated decisive-
