Q. Under IGY (International
Geophysical Y e a r agreement)
knowledge learned by space satel-
lites is to be shared fully. How
useful would knowledge learned
by Russia's Sputnik's be in de-
veloping or accelerating our sat-
ellite programs? And in what par-
ticular ways?
A. We expect to learn from the
Sputniks, with and without Soviet
collaboration, quite a few things
with regard to the shape of the
earth, transoceanic mapping and
survey, mass distribution within
the earth, and density of the up-
permost layers of the atmosphere.
If and when the Soviets will
present the results of their tele-
metered readings from the satel-
lites themselves, we are likely to
learn many new things on cosmic
radiation, solar X-rays, effects of
extended weightlessness on ani-
mals, density of micrometeors and
meteoric dust, and the like.
Q. What does Russia's success
mean in terms of science educa-
tion in this country, and public
attitudes toward scientists and
basic research?
A. I am convinced that the
Sputniks will give Russia's science
education program an additional
most powerful boost. I can only
hope that it will give the U.S. sci-
ence education program an even
greater boost, because we need
such a boost badly.
And I also hope. it will enhance
the recognition of science and sci-
entists in the eyes of the U.S.
public. Unless we manage to make
careers in the sciences more at-
tractive to the young generation,
we cannot hope to win the long-
range struggle with the Soviets
for scientific and technological
superiority.

Dean Rates#
Quality First
In Grade Aid
Need should no longer be the
decisive criterion in giving scholar-
ship-fellowship aid at the graduate
school level, Jacques Barzun, dean
of Graduate Faculties at Columbia
University said recently.
"Unless two students competing
for an award are equally deserving
in all other respects, the element
of need, always hard to estimate,k
should be made secondary to in-
tellectual quality," the dean said.
"Even families with an osten-
sibly sufficient income have diffi-
culty in giving full financial sup-
port to their children through
graduate school .Moreover, these3
families are often those in which
intellectual interests are well-es-
tablished, so that the denial of
help to them on the ground that
poorer, and sometimes less gifted,
applicants are in greater need, may
In fact bring about a .social and
cultural loss," he went on to say.
Dean Barzun declared that fi-
nancial independence is desirable
for all students undertaking grad-
uate work, if the work is to be done
as it should be.

STUDENTS ENJOY FOOTBALL FAME:
Slippery Rock Legend Continue
Slippery Rock has no idea where
or when it became a legend.
It is not sure, either, what par-
tcular fascination it holds; why
some of the largest colleges in
the country faithfully follow the
activities of its football team.
It doesn't know any of these
things, but it is perfectly delighted
with the whole idea.
'Officially, State Teachers College,
Slippery Rock, is an accredited in-
stitution of the state of Pennsyl-
vania one of 14 such education
schools in the state, and placing
3 ~its emphasis on physical education.
But there is something special
about it that can only become evi
dent by being there.

Students Very Close
There is about Slippery Rock
an air of exuberance that is almost
tangible. It is a feeling so strong
that it is evident in the day-to-day
life on campus, so infectious that
even breakfast at 6:45 a.m. is a
gay affair.
This is due, in large part, to the
close-knit character of the student
body. This is inevitable in a school
whose entire population of 1,027 is
housed in two dormitories, with
one cafeteria between them.
Furthermore, the campus itself
Js completely intrinsic. There is so
little need for the tiny town which
surrounds it that girls must sign
out if they leave campus during
the day.
Everything Right There
For everything they need is at
their fingertips. There is a book-
store in the administration build-
ing; there is a small movie theatre
below the library for entertain-
ment, and there is "The Hut," a
student-built snack bar and rec-
reation budilding, for relaxation.
But the enthusiasm comes, most-
ly, from the curriculum. They are
physical education majors, and
they delight in their, skills. Prac-
tice, working out, and criticism of
each other's performances 'play a
large part in their lives.
They get athletic training, of
course, in their classes, but they
do not stop there. Individuals and
teams hold practice sessions dur-
ing spare hours, strictly on their
own.
This, perhaps, is. what creates
the magic in their football team.
They play to win, yds. But they
play also just for the sheer joy
of playing.

HANGING OUT ITS SHINGLE-Slippery Rock
has friendly greeting for visitors. "Hi! Tradi-
tion" dictates a greeting for everyone, is ob-
served scrupulously. Porch of East Gym is to
right, tower of Old Main (administration build-
ing) is silhouetted against sky. Tower clock is
currently out of order

"SCASH 'EM"-Slippery Rock cheerleader yel
favorite cheer as the "Rockets" scramble for th
football. Cheerleader squad is divided int,
Varsity and Junior Varsity, always have mor
candidates than they can use. Students ar
enthusiastic about football team, cheer eve
when they fall behind.

inoff will speak on elementary prob-
lems in geometry, 3017 A.H., Mon., Nov.
11 at 4:10 p.m.
