"The need for applying the fun-
damentals of botany has led me
to approve the establishment of a
beacon that will be placed in the
middle of the arboretum," Uni-
versity President Harlan Catcher
announced last week.
President Catcher explained,
"This beacon will allow the stu-
dents to go to the arboretum at
night to supplement their lecture
and lab courses by additional
preparation in the fundamentals
of their course."
According to President Catcher,
this new plan provides that lab
assistants will patrol the arb
nightly to "see that the students
don't confuse their bushes."
President Catcher's plan also
provides that in order to gain ad-
mittance to the arb, the students'
must display permits whichshow
that they are botany students
"who are interested in furthering
their knowledge in this field."
The proposal has created a
marked effect upon the student
population. Registration in botany
classes showed a sudden increase,
so great that the classes were
filled the first day of registration.
There were varied opinions
among the students concerning
this new move on the part of the
president. Many of them felt that
by the establishment of this bea-
con, the University would be wast-
ing money which could be put to
better use by boosting the sal-
aries of the football players.
SL members feel very indignant
over the fact that this plan wasn't
put into their hands. "President
Catcher could have at least had
a student poll before he approved
this plan," stated Bed Lion, '8Ag,
IFC pres., Johann Batty, '59SN,
said, "Speaking on behalf of the
University's fraternity men, we
feel that the illumination of our
horticultural haunts will upset the
natural process of photosynthesis,
thus ruining one of the Universi-
ty's most well-known landmarks.
The next thing you know, they'll
be focusing flood lights on the
doors of the Women's dorms."
There were many students, how-
ever, who had never taken botany
and greatly approved the plan,
"I've always been interested in
botany, plants and things like
that," Jack Lausen, '56M, said,
"My mother always told me I had
a green thumb."
Sally Lovell, '57F, said, "I think
that this new idea will prove to be
very interesting," as she bent over
to examine an eucalyptus leaf.
"As for me," said Percy Bennet,
'57, adjusting his horn-rimmed
glasses, "I think this beacon will
put a little more light on the sub-
dissertation on "My Vacation" at 4:15
p.m. tomorrow in waterboy Gymnasi-
um. He is a candidate for a doctoral
degree in physical activity.
