New Course
By DIANE LaBAKAS1
Freshmen entering the School
of Literature, Science and the Arts
this fall have been offered the
opportunity to take a combined
English-Great Books course.
Five sections of English I have
been set up to meet as Great Books
classes four times a week and as
English I classes twice a week.
Students thereby take two
courses and receive two grades and
seven hours credit.
Rich Background
"One of the advantages of this
arrangement is that it gives fresh-
men English students a rich sup-
ply of subject matter to use in
developing their writing skills,"
Prof. Henry Ogden, Great Books
committee chairman said.
"Students in these sections will
also get a firmer grasp and a more
intricate knowledge of the great
books themselves .as a result of
writing about them than they
would through discussion."
He said the students' writing will
grow and will simultaneously help
to enrich their reading experience.
Prof. Ogden pointed out that in-
structors in Great Books teach the
Greek and Roman classics as al
ways whereas instructors in Eng-
lish I emphasize organization,
paragraph structure, and diction.
Two Marks
He explained that students in
these sections will receive one
mark for Great Books and one for
English I.
He said the Great Books grade
will be primarily determined by
the student's grasp of the reading
material and his writing quality.
"In English I the grade will de-
pend primarily on the quality of
the writing done, and for the ac-
curacy and validity of his state-
ments."
Prof. Ogden attributed the in-
novation to Prof. Warren G. Rice,
English Department chairman.
Great Books is primarily a fresh-
man course. Sophomores may take
it without permission but upper-
classmen must get Prof. Ogden's
consent.
SU' Broadcast
Time Hihed
In response to a highly-favor-
able audience survey conducted
earlier this year, the University
radio station WUOM will expand
its weekly broadcast. schedule to
include Saturdays.
This increases WUOM's weekly
air-time to 70 hours and marks the
first regular extension of the
broadcast week since Sunday pro-
grams were inaugurated four years
ago.
"The coming expansion," ac-
cording to University Director of
Broadcasting, Prof. Waldo Abbot,
"achieves one of the major goals
of our past thirty years of educa-
tional broadcasting. It puts WUOM
on the air regularly seven days a
week for the first time in station
history."
Monday through Saturday, the
station will be on the air from
noon to 10:30 p.m. The Sunday
schedule, which begins at 9 a.m.,
will remain in effect for the time
being.

In this election year, the William
L. Clements Library is featuring
an exhibit on early election cam-
paign data.
The library's distinction lies in
its exclusive concern with early
American history. Contempory doc-j
uments of historical significance
are the main interest of the li-
brary.
The president exhibition includesE
banners, pamphlets, broadsides,,
and letters representing campaigns
from 1663 to Lincoln.-
Included in the exhibit is a 41
page speech made by Daniel Web-I
ster at the Republican NationalI
Convention in 1832, and a letterI
from President Polk to Lewis Cass,

Michigan's unsuccessful candidate
for president, in which he con-
gratulates Cass on "the almost
certain prospect of your election."
In another exhibit case is an
American flag on which is printed
the trademark of Benjamin Harri-
son, a jug of hard cider and the
slogan "Harrison and reform."
One of the newspapers in the
exhibit, The Washington Gazette,
emphatically predicts that Wil-
liam H. Crawford is a sure thing
in the 1924 presidential election.
A broadside issued in 1799 by
the Federalists, accusing the Re-
publicans of skullduggery, and the
indignant reply of the Republi-
cans adds to the display.

standing ovation in Hill Auditorium, scene of his graduation in
1923. Though he referred to the overflow crowd as "my fellow
Young Republicans," at least one member of the audience
applauded when Dewey referred to alumnus visits as "a consider-
able." nuisance." "You," the former New York governor responded,
didn't have to come."
