During the past month, the
monument directly east of the
University library has been paint-
ed several times.
The culprits, operating at night,
have struck four times, according
to Mrs. Jean Barnard, employee
in the library's card catalogue de-
partlient.
The monument, dedicated to
four University professors, was
first painted pink at the beginning
of the month, then followed by
coats of yellow, purple and green.
Each time a member of the plant
department had to come down to
remove the paint.
The monument was recently
painted gray by the plant depart-
ment but traces of green can still
be seen at the base.
'It was the first time in the 20
years I have been on campus that
I have seen the monument paint-
ed," said Mrs. Barnard. Mrs. Bar-
nard graduated from the Univer-
sity in 1936 with a master's de-
gree In library science,

sdaing over-emphasized?
The reaction of most- campus
opini n to this question Is quick
and decisve.
"Overemphasized ? I can't get
enough of it."
"Why, it's th e greatest thing
on this campus!'
"Sure there's too much of it.
Everybody should study all the
time., are typical answers.
But there are exceptions-
One- sophomore, -who . says he
goes out as often as he can spare
the time which is seldom more
than once a month., complains
that his friends are continually
trying to fix up blind dates for
him.
"I keep trying to tell them that
I don't want to have a date every
week, but they won't listen," he
'ays. "They just wonder what's
wrong with me."
An older girl took a somewhat
similar attitude, but blamed soc-
ial chairmen instead of friends.
"Whenever a social chairman
has planned any sort o a party
at all, she's so anxious to make it
a success that she practically
forces everyone in he: house to
DAILY

aet a date," the girl said. "I know
-I'm a. social chairman myself."
Dorm Pressure
And one married co-ed remem-
bers the pressure in her dormitory
last year.
:If a girl didn't have a date on
a week-end she was actually
ashamed to be seen outsice the
dorm. If she wanted to see a
movie she would go with another
girl in the afternoon, never on
Friday or Saturday night.
"When a girl came in from a
date and all the other girls came
into her room to hear about it,
she would never dare say she
didn't have fun," the ex-dorm
resident remembers.
"She would always just say that
she had 'a wonderful time'."
Another coed agrees that. pres-
sure in the dorms is too strong.
Unpopular Girls
She says that "it's especially
hard on the girl who isn't too at-
tractive and seldom gets a dIte.
When. she hears everyone else
talking all week about who they're
going out with, she feels pretty
much left out,"
Another girl says that parents
are responsible for too much dat-
ing pressure.
