Faculty Gives
Nod to Survey
on Vocations
Approval of the all-senior vo-
cation survey scheduled for next
week by the Commission on Hu-
man Resources was voiced yester-
day by a University dean and two
faculty men connected with psy-
chological research.
Prof. E. Lowell Kelly, director
of the Bureau of Psychological
Services, said, "In my judgment,
this testing program, designed to
discover the essential similarities
and differences among college
majors, constitutes one of the most
important aspects of thelarger

Given to all seniors in the lit-
erary college and the schools of
architecture and design, social
work, natural resources, medi-
cine, dentistry, education, law,
business administration, engi-
neering, music, pharmacy and
nursing, the tests will require
two hours.
Senior Board as well as admin-
istrators of the participating
schools are urging 100 per cent
cooperation from all seniors.
Prof. Kelly explained, "Previous
small-scale studies of the problem
have indicated the potential value
of data of the kind provided by
the tests, but nothing less than a
large-scale testing program such
as here proposed is adequate to
yield definite findings."

Arthur L. Brandon, Director of
University Public Relations, said
yesterday President Harlan H.
Hatcher did not plan an addi-
tion to his comments on Congres-
sional investigating committees
until the appearance of the Clardy
group in Michigan early next year.
Brandon's statement came on a
coast-to-coast r a d i o newscast
which claimed a "dramatic dis-
agreement" was in evidence on
campus between the students and
the University President.
THE PROGRAM referred to a
Daily editorial printed in Sunday's
paper calling President Hatcher's
stand toward Congressional com-
mittees "inconsistent, contradic-
tory, weak and unbecoming a uni-
versity president."
Commenting on the editorial
written by Virginia Voss, '54, Edi-
torial Director, and Alice B. Sil-
ver, '54, Associate Editorial Direc-
tor, Managing Editor Harry Lunn,
'54, said on the newscast six of
the seven senior editors agreed
with the article along with the
majority of the junior staff.
Lunn went on to tell a listeningr
audience of approximately five
million people that The Daily
had received favorable comment
throughout the day on the edi-
torial but "it was hard to tell the
general opinion of the students"
in the conflict.
The program, aired over thej
Taylor Grant show, said the dis!
puted editorial hinted University'
officials were "appeasing the in-
vestigators" because of outside

By a rising vote of acclamation,
Student Legislature last night re-
elected Bob Neary, '54BAd., presi-

Rather than outline his aims in
a traditional acceptance speech,

Moines, Ia. said the newly-elected
cabinet would meet to adopt a
platform of joint aims to Pe pre-

and was SL treasurer for the first
part of the semester.

developed in the race between
former incumbent Steve Jelin,
'55, and present incumbent Via
Hampton, '54, for treasurer.
In a speech nominating Hamp-
ton, Hank Berliner, '56, advised:
SL members "the election had not
been rigged in spite of some pre-
dictions of a close 21-18 vote in
favor of the opposing candidate."
Surprised looks dotted many
Legislators' faces as Berliner con-
tinued his nominating speech by
citing the changed support of for-
mer SL treasurer Hicks from the

in the treasurer's office six weeks
ago to yesterday's election. Hicks,
