STANFORD, Calif. -- A men-

trist on the Stanford University
campus was discovered recently.
The patien't, a parolee from a'
California State Hospital, set up
offices in the English department
building and other offices. From
these ofices he conducted psychi-
atric experiments on students
from the Psychology I class.
Each time the University of fi-
cials would try to check up on the
inmate he would move to another
office and start his experiments
A person of 'similar description
also appeared at the Health Serv-
ice and began examining students

ITHACA, N.Y. - Plans for the

Course were announced by 'the

At the present time Cornell will
take the entire financial burden
of building the building and mov-
ing the fraternities.
Cornell feels that the fraternity
quadrangle would go a long way
in "clearing the social and edu-
cational atmosphere at the Uni-
versity." It is felt that the social
code would be much easier to en-
force, according to Miss Theresa
Humphreyvill, chairlady of the

The four students who were
members of the Committee were

of the meeting.
A Committee spokesman said
that the curfew was necessary be-
cause of "the unbecoming, dan-
gerous and unwarranted behavior
shown by students on past week-
The student members com-
plained that the views of the stu-
dent body were not being taken
into account. The Committee,
stated, however, that the stu-
dent's requests were considered as
far as it was possible. As a con-
cession to the students it was an-
nounced that, conflicts between
opening hours at the women's
dormitories have been resolved.
The Administration stated that
it could regulate all areas of stu-
dent life. "Education is not con-
fined to what may be gleaned
from textbooks. Students must be
taught what is right and wrong
in any society," an administra-
tion spokesman said.

Ohio State
Students Sell
Class Notes
A company of students at Ohio
State University is taking notes
in classes, mimeographing them
and selling them to their fellow
Although 88 per cent of the
students are in favor of the prac-
tice, according to the campus
newspaper, the university deans
and some of the student leaders
are rather upset.
Yesterday Executive Dean of
Student Relations William Guth-
rie met with the owners of the
company, Nationwide Note Serv-
ice, to attempt to bring an end to
listening to lectures by proxy.
The practice, Guthrie said,
prevents students from learning
to organize material they pick up
in class for themselves. He also
pointed out that according to
university rules, any person who
uses another's notes is cheating.
The notes, which are taken by
"A" students, are sold for $5 a
quarter for a class meeting five
hours a week.
Some students say that with
someone else taking notes for
them in class they are able to pay
closer attention to the professor's.
words. Others find that the prac-
tice makes it possible to study for
their next class, write a letter
home or just think about last
night's date.
Some university officials mis-
understand the company's pur-
pose, according to Jack Shiffrin
and his wife, who organized the
company last month.
A note-selling service has been
used by medical students for 10
years, Mrs. Shiffrin pointed out.
Guthrie feels that while medical
students are old enough to decide
whether or not to use another's
notes, buying notes would get
freshmen off on the wrong foot.

AMHERST, Mass. - Students
at the' University of Massachu-
setts can now finish a four-year
program in three years, according
to President J. Paul Mather.
The accelerated program will be
easier in' the College of Arts and
Sciences than in the School of
Engineering. To start the new pro-
gram freshmen will be admitted
for the first time in the history of
the university to its summer ses-
sions. Provost S. McCune com-
mented, "It is senseless to build
more buildings which will be used
only for eight months."
The full year attendance plan
will go into effect in mid-June of
1958, although the first full-size
freshman class will not enter un-
til 1959. The system will offer
either the three-semester or the
four-quarter program.
