Book Exchange Ready for New Term

By TERI YOUNGMAN
The Student Legislature's non-
profit Student Book Exchange,
designed to save students' money
on the purchase and sale of used
text-books, is getting ready to
open for business.
The exchange sells texts on a
consignment basis, charging only
a 10 per cent service charge. Com-
pared with the usual used book
mark-ups, Keith Beers, Grad.,
manager of the exchange, indi-
cated that this is about a "ten-
fold saving.
There is no charge on those
books wpich are unsold.
STUDENTS may set their own
price on the books that they wish
to sell from a list of suggested
persentages. Books to be sold at
the exchange may be brought to
the Student Legislature Bldg.
from 2 to 5:30 p.m. daily.
Beers emphasized the import-
ance of turning in books-"if
there are no book collections
there can be no exchange."
Collections will also take place
from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednes-
day, Thursday and Friday next
week in the Business Administra-
'tion Bldg. lobby, and from noon to
5:30 p.m. Monday through hurs-
day of the second week of exams
in the lobby of Haven Hall and in
the SL Bldg. All dormitories and
many of the affiliated houses will
also hold collections during the
first or second week of classes.
The Exchange will be open for
the purchase of books from 8:30
a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Feb. 4 through
Feb. 11 and from 12:30 p.m. to
5:30 p.m. Feb. 12 and 13 in Rm. 18,
Angell Hall.
Checks for the books sold will
be available from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. Feb. 16 and 17 in Rm. 18 An-
gell Hall. Unsold books must be
picked up at that time or they
become the property of the Ex-
change.
Radar System
May Prediet
U.S. Weather
Within the next five to ten years
the United States will have an
electronic weather system cover-
ing the entire nation and giving
100 percent accurate weather fore-.
casts.
This was the prediction given
by Capt. H. T. Orville, USN Ret.,
director of engineering at a large
aviation corporation, in a talk to
,the American Institute of Electric-
al Engineers last night.
Capt. Orville stressed the eco-
nomic benefits to be derived from
such a system which could give
accurate storm, frost, and drought
warnings.
He pointed out how a fore-
warned populace could save bil-
lions of dollars in property dam-
ages by being prepared for any of
nature's holocausts. Farmers, sail-
ors, and aviators especially would
benefit because their occupations,
and often their lives, are heavily
dependent on correct forecasts.
While working for the Navy,
Capt. Orville provided weather in-
formation used in the North Afri-
can landings of 1942

At present, the council derives
its authority from the Board of
Governors through the quad res-
ident directors. The board, in
turn, is empowered by the Re-
gents of the University.
Members of the inter-quad body
feel these questions will be ans-
wered through further experience
and "proper exchange of ideas be-
tween the three quad councils."
IHC was granted temporary
recognition by SAC this fall. Soon
after the spring vacation they will
ask IHC for a progress report,
however.

SOLVING its second 4 major
problem will determine whether
IHC will deal solely with quad ac-
tivities or branch out to taking
stands on major campus issues
such as the Lecture Committee and
fraternity bias clauses.
"Our present intention is to
act only on quadrangle pro-
jects," outgoing South Quad
president Chuck Weber,'53, said.
Finney, Eisenberg
On Theater Panel
Prof. Ross Lee Finney of the
School of Music and Marvin Eis-
enberg of the fine arts department
will appear on a panel discussion
after the performance of "Come
of Age" at 8 p.m. today at the
Arts Theater.
The Clemence Dane play with
music by Alexander Smith of the
music school will run through Jan.
25. An experiment in colloquial
language blank verse, the drama
tells the story of a young poet who
dies but returns to earth two cen-
turies later.

"However, only by coming' up
against these problems will we be
able to finally define our sphere
of activity," Weber added.
IHC members also feel that to
have an effective representative
body, some method of communi-
cating its actions back to the quad
residents must be perfected. A re-
cent Daily poll indicated many
residents had little or no know-
ledge of IHC activities.
The council's leaders also hope
to' make quad men more aware
of other campus organizations and
interest them in problems of mut-
ual concern such as the SL Book
Exchange and Fresh Air Camp
projects.
Aiken, Donne
To ,JoinStaff
Prof. Henry David Aiken of
Harvard University andl Prof. Wil-
lis F. Donne of Cornell University
will join the staff of the Depart-
ment of Philosophy for the com-
ing semester in the -positions of
visiting professors.
Prof. Aiken was a book editor
of the Journal of Philosophy until
1951, and at present is a consult-
ing editor of the Philosophical
Review. In addition to lecturing
on ethics and aesthetics at the
graduate level, he will teach the
University's course entitled Com-
munism, Fascism, and Democracy.
This is a course parallel to one
he gives at Harvard.
Prof. Donne, ' a graduate of
Princeton University, will lecture
on the theory of knowledge.
