The University is not expected to care if
students smoke or not, or sleep with the window-

students in making choices of this sort.

at the top of the second rung, pressing close on the first four orches-

night that it commands great beauty of tone, supple responsiveness to
direction and considerable discipline.
The beauty of tone In the first violins, for example, is worthy of
mention. It is a smooth, precisely focused, clear tone, warm and melting,

"Adjustment" is becoming the keynote of the
twentieth century. The ultimate end of adjust-
ment is Brave New World, where everyone is

think and consider.

Discrimination in the North is subtle but
prevalent. Communities preach tolerance and
divide quietly along racial and religious lines.
Consequently, few incoming freshmen have had
the opportunity to know well people of differ-
