To provide an opportunity for

Designed to promote better stu-
dent-faculty relations, a different
department of the literary college
will be honored each Wednesday
afternoon. Today's gathering is the
second of the year.
Union chairman of the affairs,
Allan Drebin, emphasized the in-
formality and casualness of the
meetings as contrasted with the
more formal- classroom relation-

center around the special field of
the faculty members invited or it
may be pleasant banter on topics
of the day," Drebin rerarked.

initiated two years ago and has
grownin popularity throughout
the past semesters.

ries will honor the speech depart-

hours, honoring two departments
to be announced later, will be

ernoons in May.
