lectual opportunity to increase

lic doctrine and the meaning of
Father Bradley said the classes
are "down-to-earth, basic classes,"
ranging from discussions of tenets
of the Roman Catholic Church to
discussion of religious philosophy.
Members are encouraged to attend
the classes each year and the
courses are graded in content and
difficulty to give the students a
thorough education concerning the
beliefs of their church.
Forums Held '
An open forum discussion each
Wednesday night gives students a
chance to talk to the "more nee-
dling subjects that come up in this
environment" Father Bradley said.
Any question or problem may be
presented for student discussion
at the session.
Newman Club's social program
is also very extensive. Each Friday
members get together for a party.
Saturdays are devoted to activities
of its large foreign student mem-
Over half of the foreign students
at the University attend St. Mary's.
Next year Father Bradley said
there would be Roman Catholic
foreign student advisors connected
with St. Mary's and Newman Club
to help them with any problems
they may have.

Father Bradley said the New-
man Club program included al-
most every kind of fellowship ac-
tivity, from the annual mid-semes-
ter ski trip to the weekly Sunday
night suppers.

Newman Club hopes to expand
its facilities in the near future by
building a student chapel on North
ITHACA, New York - Cornell
University plans to expand its
parking facilities to accommodate
student vehicles.
Students who own cars will be
rented assigned space in the vari-
ous campus parking lots where
they will be allowed to park over-
night. Cars parked in the wrong
spaces will be subject to the usual
penalties for illegal campus park-

MADISON, Wis.--A unique In-
stitute for Research in the Hu-
manities will begin activities here
in September, 1959.
It will serve as a center for
humanistic research, particularly
in the areas of history, philosophy,
language and literature. The im-
mediate core of the institute will
consist of three professorships -
two permanent and one rotating
among faculty members of the
humanities department.
After its initiation, Institute
professors would be expeted to
devote full time to research, but
would be available for limited
teaching assignments through
agreement with their departments
or for participation in a joint
course or seminar of the Institute.

False-H and
Prof. Harold Hand of the Uni-
versity of Illinois education school
accused a national magazine of
using "fantastically false" figures
on advanced mathematics enroll-
ment in high schools.
The professor, addressing the
Michigan Schoolmasters Club, said
Friday that post-Sputnik critics of
public education have given Amer-
ican high schools "an undeserved
black eye."
Prof. Hand cited the magazine
as reporting only 12.5 per cent of
the nation's high school students
take any mathematics more than
He claimed all the high school
graduates, 42 per cent will have
taken plain geometry, 32 per cent,
intermediate algebra, 13 per cent,
solid geometry and 16 per cent will
have studied trigonometry.
Basing his figures on data pre-
pared by the United States Office
of Education, the professor also
indicated 76 per cent will have
taken biology, 35 per cent, chem-
istry courses and 25 per cent will
have studied physics.
He said the proportion of the
nation's school-age population now
studying science and mathematics
is much higher than it was in
the "good old days."
Commenting on Russian educa-
tion, Prof. Hand said until 1951
the USSR schools were "loaded
with trivialities of the most vicious
sort-trivialities which interferred
with good teaching at every turn."
He added while these "frills"
have been removed, graduates of
the new system have started pro-
fessional careers only recently.
The Schoolmasters Club, num-
bering 4,500 members, elected
Thomas Carster of Albion College
president of the club at this same
