rious vacuum," Mrs.

for bringing economic and educa-
tional benefits for the people. As
an example, Mrs. Read pointed to
the "great deal of slum clearance"
which is now going on.
Cites Education Gains
In addition to economic gains,
she observed that "university col-
leges" established in both Ghana
and Nigeria are making gains in
educational facilities.
Mrs. Read noted that the Uni-
versity College of Nigeria has a
new medical school with a 600-bed
The people look upon the univer-
sity as a -"new monument," Mrs.
Read observed.
The University colleges irs, Ghana
and Nigeria were set up as a result
of a British parliamentary com-
mission study conducted in 1944.
University Requirements High
She said the standards are main-
tained by "a very stiff entrance ex-
aminatiorn." School requirements
are modeled after British urgversi-
ties. Degree examinations are made
up by a panel of Nigerian and
British educators.
Speaking of other social condi-
tions in Nigeria, Mrs. Read noted
the rapid "growth of towns." She
added thatmore people were be-
coming "dependent on money
Trade Rises
Along with urbanization, she
cited the rise of retail trade and
industrialization and mentioned
that in Northern Nigeria, formerly
secluded women are now working
in cotton factories.
Women also carry on much of
the retail trade of the country,
Mrs. Read said. It is not unusual
to see women, "many 6f them un-
able to sign their names," making
large bank deposits, she said.
She observed that class group-
ings have changed in Nigeria, with
a "very rapid rise in income" for
government employees and those
engaged in business and trade and
added that agricultural income has
remained relatively "stable."
Noting the status of teachers
and social workers, she said that
they had suffered a "loss of pres-
tige" except in university and sec-
ondary school circles.

Students who paid their seven
dollar driving fee last year to the
University have produced a fund
of $20,449.60.
This' fund is to be -used for,
either an additional storage lot
for student use, similar to the one
on North Campus, or for a lot'or
parking structure for student
everyday parking, James A. Lewis,
University vice-president in charge
of student affairs, explained.
"Parking is our big problem, and
this indicates what can be done if
we have a source of revenue," he
A total revenue of $43,796 was


collected from Sept. 1, 1956 to
July 1, 1957. $37,893.50 came
from student driving fees while the
additional $5,902.50 was obtained
from fines levied for parking and
other traffic law infractions.
Total cost of administrative en-
forcement, printing, issuance of
decals, and secretarial work totaled
$18,346.40, leaving $25,449.60 which
was set aside purely for student
Of this total, $5,000 was used to
build a storage parking lot on
North Campus. This lot, completed
this summer, is available to all

Students who do not use their
cars every day may park them in
the lighted storage structure and
ride back to campus on a Univer-
sity bus in five minutes. On the
week ends they can retrieve their
cars and then store them again
the following week. Very few stu-
dents know about this storage lot,
Lewis said.
By making this $20,449.60 avail-
able for student parking, the ori-'
ginal guarantee which the Uni-
versity made is being fulfilled,
Lewis said.
