The theme will be an engine
bouncing down the railroad tracks.
Tickets are priced at $1 per couple.
The committee asks that all who
attend dress casually.

sponsoring the dance, has been
reorganized three times since the

been elected to the Council this
semester. They were chosen from
the student assemblies held week-
ly for all engineering students.
Tickets for the dance will be on
sale beginning Thursday. They can
be secured at the freshman as-
sembly, in the Engineering Arch,
or at the Union.
Profits Will Aid "Arch"
Profits from the dance will be
used to help finance the engi-
neering yearbook, "Arch."
President of the Council is Bill
Vander KMoot with Hicks serving as
vice-president and Betsy Palmer
as secretary. In .charge of ticket
sales are Malcolm Walker and
Norman Hozak. General chairmen

organized freshman class on cam-
pus and we want a very good show-
ing for our first dance."

Chief of the Reading Iniprove-
ment Service, Donald E. Smith,
discussed a plan for studyatg ef-
ficiently and a method for writ-
ing essay exams at a study' forum
sponsored by the Junior Panhel-
lenic Association last weeks.
Smith explained that the plan
set-up has proven effective in in-
creasing exam scores by rdbout 50
Begin With Survey±
One should begin with a, survey
of the material to be studied. This
includes thinking what the title
means, reading the intr oduction,
summary and main heads or first
sentences in each paragraph to
decide what you are attenmpting to
find out. From this, Smith sug-
gests, make-up questions to be
answered as you study.
Upon completition of he read-
ing, recite by answering -the ques-
tion and making very bidef notes,
consiting of key words and listings
only. Long notes, Smith stated,
create a fear of having too much
to learn.
Students can increase retention
and cut last minute stuidying by
90 percent by using an ;mmediate
review plan.

Smith explained that repeated
reading is inefficient, since tests
have proved that 70 percent of
what is first read is retained and
only an additional one-half per-
cent is gained on re-reading.
In taking an essay type exam,
a time schedule should be set up
whereby the student allows about
fifteen minutes, at the end for
completing answers and correcting
Read the questions through thor-
oughly, jotting down key words
to the answers to reduce "clutch-
ing." "Put the question in your
own words," said Smith, "and
compare your version with the
test to be sure you are answering
the right question."
Outline the answer before writ-
ing. Organized answers influence
most graders, whether consiciously
or not. Take time to write an in-
troduction and summary,
