The classes start at 8:15 p.m. to-
day at the women's pool. Lessons
will be given every Tuesday night
for six weeks.
With all of the lakes in the sur-
rounding area it is important that
everyone know how to take care
of himself while in the water, ac-
cording to Dr. Margaret Bell. The
swimming classes are being given
for that purpose.
Many colleges make entering
students take a swimming test and
if they don't pass it, they are re-
quired to take swimming in order
to graduate. The University has no
such rule regarding swimming for

Physical Education Department is

selves whether or not to take
It has been proven in other
courses that more students are
willing to take a class if it is not
compulsory. It has also been prov-
en that the students learn a great
deal by deciding for themselves.
The first of these lessons is im-

afraid of the water.

the classes may register at the

Bamboo Partition, Drapes
Modernize Coeds' 'Triple'
By BARBARA PERLMAN
Bamboo panels are the setting of
a unique room arrangement for
three East Quadrangle coeds.
Marcia Hawley, Nancy Case and
Sharon Chynoweth of 330 Pres-
cott House are the ambitious stu-
dents who have converted their
dormitory triple room into an at-
tractive, more comfortable "suite."
By suspending bamboo panels
from the ceiling, they have parti-
tioned the room to provide more
satisfactory sleeping and studying
quarters. The bamboo panels, a bit
of old Hawaii, create a relaxing
"The idea of partitioning the
room was just a brainstorm," Miss
Hawley explained, "and surpris-
ingly it turned ont pretty well. It's
all legal too," she continued, "as
the panels are attached to the cei-
ling with push pins. It was hard
getting them there, but they're up
to stay now."
The new arrangement, while
giving a more "lived in" appear-
ance than most other triples, also
has its advantages as far as study-
ing is. concerned. The study side of
the room is separated from the
rest by the bamboo panels and
chartreuse curtain§ which close off
the other half.

Rosenfeld - Landman
Mr. and Mrs. Zola Rosenfeld of
Jackson, Michigan, announce the
engagement of their daughter Bet-
ty-Ann to Louis Landman of Mad-
ison, Wisconsin, son of the late
Rabbi and Mrs. Solomon Landman
of Kew Gardens, N.Y.
Miss Rosenfeld, a senior in the
literary college, is a member of

Mr. Landman, who graduated
from the University of Wisconsin,
is associated with the University
radio station there and is sports
director at WMTV in Madison. He
is a member of Sigma Delta Chi
professional journalism fraternity.
He also served in the United
States Navy in World War II.
The wedding is planned for next
half of the room. "'There are no
more arguments over a lights-out
curfew in the room. The light
doesn't bother the person who
wants to sleep with the panels and
curtains shutting off the glare,"
Miss Case remarked.
The sleeping side of the suite
consists of one double and one sin-
gle bed, the latter made into a
couch with a green bed spread
and attractive pillows which the
girls have covered with contrast-
A more "modern" touch is add-
ed to the living room with a long
black coffee table which Miss Chy-
noweth built with the help of her
father." It is so easy to make,"
Miss Chynoweth remarked. "You
just take a fiat board, sand it down
and attach metal legs to the un-
derside. Paint and shellac come
next and there it is."

THE CARE AND FEEDING OF BOOKS
You busy college people - you with your classes and your
studying and your social activities and your three-legged races -
it is no wonder that you have so little time for reading. I mean
reading for the pure pleasure of it, not to cram for exams. It is
a sad omission, and my heart goes out to you. I do, however,
take comfort from the fact that the graduation season ap-
proaches. Many of you will soon leave the hurly-burly of college
for the tranquility of the outside world. Oh, you'll love it on
the outside! It, is a quiet life, a gracious and contemplative
life, a life of ease and relaxation, of plenty of time to enjoy the
treasures of literature.
It is with you in mind that I sit now in my cane-bottomed
rocker and close my kindly gray eyes and smoke a mellow
Philip Morris cigarette and remember books that made me
laugh and books that made me cry and, remembering, laugh and
cry again. It is, I say, with you in mind that I sit thus and
rock thus and close my kindly gray eyes thus and smoke a
Philip Morris thus and laugh and cry thus, for I wish to recom-
mend these lovely and affecting books to you so that you too may
someday sit in your cane-bottomed rockers and close your kindly
gray eyes and smoke a mellow Philip Morris and remember
books that made you laugh and books that made you cry and,
remembering, laugh and cry again.
Sitting and rocking, my limpid brown eyes closed in reverie,
a plurhe of white smoke curling lazily upward from my excellent
Philip Morris cigarette, I remember a lovely and affecting
book called Blood on the Grits by that most talented young
Southerner, Richard Membrane Haw. It is a tender and poignant
story of a sensitive Alabama boy who passes safely through
puberty only to be devoured by boll weevils ... A lovely and
I puff my splendid Philip Morris cigarette and close my danc-
ing blue eyes and recall another book, a thrilling true adventure,
lovely and affecting, called I Climbed Everest the Hard Way
by Cliff Sherpa. Mr. Sherpa, as everyone knows, was the first
man to reach the peak of Mt. Everest by tunneling from below.
In his book he gives a lovely and affecting account of his trip,
which was not as easy as it sounds, you may be sure.
I light another merry Philip Morris cigarette and close my
lambent hazel eyes and recollect another book - Life on the Farm
by Dick Woolly. This is a short book - only 55 words -.and
rather a dull one. It would not be worth mentioning here were
it not for the fact that the author is a sheep.
I exhale a cloud of snowy white smoke from my bracing Philip
Morris cigarette and shut my laughing green eyes and think
of the vast, vast array of historical novels that have given
There is Blood on the Visor by Richard Membrane Haw (he
who wrote the lovely and affecting Blood on the Grits). There
is Cold Steel and Hot Flashes by Emmaline Prentiss Moulting.
There is The Black Shield of Sigafoos by Wruth Wright. There
is Four Quarts in a Galleon by William Makepiece Clambroth.
There are many, many others, all lovely, all affecting.
But sitting here, drawing on my matchless Philip Morris
cigarette, my saucy amber eyes closed tightly, I am thinking
that the loveliest, most affecting of all historical novels is May
