and municipal officials from all
over the state will be shown the
efficiency of low pressure fog, a
fine water spray which turns to

The eight-room wooden house
to be used in the test is on Uni-
versity property located at Hill

Wallace Gannon of the Univer-
sity Extension Service which spon-
sors the Fire College, said heat
testing devices will be placed in-
side the building so interior tem-
peratures can be recorded. The
amount of water used will also be
measured, he added.

paths, change is naturally suspect-
ed, and wins acceptance only after
rigorous evaluation. And this
process, to those involved in it,
is a most time-consuming and
However, the new constitution
is in the process of clearing its fi-
nal channels this week, and will
shortly become a reality.
AN ATTRACTIVE shapely bru-
nette Miss Kaufman, in her alter
ego as a student, has majored in
speech correction and education.
"My grades are nothing to brag
about," she claims when pressed
for her point average. But in-
formed sources maintain that she
isn't too far from the 3.0 mark.
The retired chief female ex-
ecutive is just completing a
FINIS--Campus career completed, Phyllis Kaufman, '53Ed, pre-
pares for departure, triumphant after clearing her last gradua-
tion hurdle, a freshman physical education test.
