'U' Education
Not many people are aware of
the fact tha a full one quarter of
the Horace H. Rackhamn School
of Graduate Studies is comprised
of lneople working for Masters or
Doctorate degrees in education.
Assistant Dean, Harlan C. Koch
of the Graduate School, noted
that students working in some
field of education make up the
largest single group in the school.
"About one fourth of the total
University enrollment Is enrolled
in Graduate School and one
fourth of that number are in edu-
cation," Prof. Koch said.
In response to the demand for
teachers, Dean of the School of
Education Williard C. Olsen noted
that "we have been turning out
college professors in substantial

among tax supported schools in

awarded," Dean Olsen said.

can be allocated primarily for
parking, as SGC recommends,"
Streiff said, "we still need to con-

At their Friday meeting, the

there should be a registration fee,
but hesitant to suggest any exact

During discussion on jurisdiction
of violations of the proposed new

Judic of a considerable burden and

The Implementation committee

in an attempt to present proposals

In addition to Dean Rea, Streiff,

members are Joint Judic chair-

CHICAGO (.P)-An Anthropolo-
gist says life among prehistoric
Mogollon Indians of western New
Mexico wasn't too far different
from that of today's modern white
man-with some important ex-
ceptions, of course.,
These primitive Indians lived in
apartments, thrived on a farm
economy, were devoted to religion
and had itchy feet.
PaulS. Martin, head of the de-
partment of anthropology of the
Clhicago Natural History Museum,
has supervised the mu seum' s
Southwest archaeological expedi-
tions for the last 12 years. He
reports that this year's work in
the excavations near Reserve, N,
M., revealed important material
on which to build a chronological
hory of te people whose be-
ginnings reach back 5,000 years.
Martin says the purpose of his
research on early American life
is designed to:
1. Learn why a particular cul-
ture or civilization develops.
2. Determine why and how it
3. Why it declines and dies.
"These problems all have a di-
rect bearing on our daily lives be-
