Summer Placement:
Calling all students interested In
summer employment: There will be a
big meeting of the Summer Placement
Service at Aud. B in Angell Hall, on
Thurs., Nov. 21, at 3:00 p.m. Open to all
students who want to get in on the
summer job hunt right from the be-
ginning.

"Some landlords don't know hu-
man nature," he averrs. "They put
a good Christian boy next door to
one interested in cigarettes, whisky
and wild, wild women. -This leads
to trouble."
Should be Screened
Dr. Speer admits that there
should be some definite way to
screen prospective tenants, but
claims a good guide to be where
the applicant is from.
"Boys from small, towns lfn
Michigan, or small towns any-
where, tend to be quieter than big-
city boys. New Yorkers tend to be
rough and loud-talking. Of course,
there. are startling exceptions," he
added.
Generally Dr. Speer doesn't try
to size up prospective tenants, but
instead makes sure they under-
stand what the conditions will be.
If he told them the rules about
rough-housing and the rest after-
wards, he says, there'd be trouble.
"Because of the slight housing
shortage the landlords can afford
to screen a little," Dr. Speer adds.
High Overhead
Besides his complaints onpos-
sible low rents, Dr. Speer considers
high overhead due to bulding re-
pairs the main reason rooms aren't
a good investment. ,
Before he moved into the build-
ing in 1953, the doctor had $2,500
worth of alterations done, chief
among them the enclosing of the
porch, now used as a waiting room
for his chiropractic patients.
He had carpenters in to do the
construction work, but painted the
walls himself. "I'm no carpenter,"
Dr. Speer explains, "but I like to'
piddle with interior decoration.
With these new rollers you can
really conjure up some things if
you have the knack."
Dr. Speer evaluates his invest
.ment at $22,000 and considers his
return of $1600 per year less than
the return from good stock invest-
mhnts. It carries the overhead on
the office, he says, or would if he
were not still paying off the prin-
cipal.
Eight Dollars
The rent for Dr. Speer's single,
furnished rooms is eight dollars a
week. This includes a bath and
linen. The tenants do their own
cleaning.
Because of these expenditures,
Dr. Speer doesn't "think much of
rooms." He adds, however, that
since there is a housing shortage
and the four rooms are there he'd
feel guilty about not renting them.
As an exception to the rule on
┬▒eiting rooms, Dr. Speer cites an
example from his undergraduate
days at Linboln Chiropractic Col-
lege in Indianapolis. He put down
$600 for an old house and became
a landlord, recovering his initial
investment in a very short time.

Coffee Hour
to Be Held
The English Departmental Cof-
fee Hour will be held from 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. today in the Terrace
Room of the Union. Coffee and
cookies will be served.
"This coffee hour will give stu-
dents an opportunity to have in-
formal discussions of English with
members of the faculty," Irvin
Schatz, '60, of the Academic Serv-
ices Committee said.
He added that all members of
the faculty and student body are
invited. In the past, as many as
100 faculty members have at-
tended these coffee hours.
Japan Politics
To Be Explored
Three University professors will
discuss "Urban-Rural Patterns in
the Politics of Japan, West Africa
and the Arab States" today.
The discussion is scheduled for
8 p.m. in Aud. B, Angell Hall. It
is being sponsored by the Political
Science Roundtable.
Taking part will be Prof. Robert
E. Ward, Prof. Henry L. Bretton
and Prof. GeorgeL. Grassmuck of
the political science department.
Prof. Roy Pierce of the political
science department will act as
moderator. The meeting is open to
the public.

Bowles Hits
Admissions
Difficulties
Solutions to the administrative
problem of admissions were pro-
posed by Frank H. Bowles, presi-
dent of the College Entrance Ex-
amination Board of New York
State.
Two solutions were proposed.
One of them would be for colleges
currently under admission appli-
cation pressure, to institute a
longer and more flexible cycle of
admissions p r o c e d u r e, inviting
and deciding on certain applicants
before or early in their senior
year.
Each candidate currently re-
quires from seven to 10 admission
operations, with scholarship ap-
plications requiring from five to
eight additional steps, Pres.
Bowles stated.
"The colleges eduld, with rela-
tively little effort, get in contact
with all or nearly all of their can-
didates months earlier than they
now do. They could use a prelim-
inary screening test to make ad-
visory Judgements on preliminary
applications and could begin to
make certain types of final de-
cisions, that is negative decisions,
shortly after receiving the Jan-
uary or February test scores," he
continued.
The second solution suggested
by the Board's report was to de-
sign 'and administer a central
clearing house operation, which
would leave to the colleges the
full exercise of admissions discre-
tion, employing whatever combi-
nation of information and judge-
ment they would wish to employ.
"If application pressures on col-
lege . . . continue to increase at
the rate at which they have been
increasing for the past five years,
then we must expect that the ad-
missions process as we now know
it will suffer a clerical breakdown
by 196," Mr. Bowles said.

Professors
To Discuss
Red -Science
Three University professors will
discuss different aspects of Soviet
science at 8 p.m. today in Aud. B,
Angell Hall.
Prof. Arthur J. Lohwater of the
mathematics department will dis-
cuss mathematics and science as
they relate to education in Russia.
In June and July, 1956, the So-
viet' Academy of Sciences invited
Prof. Lohwater to address the So-
viet Mathematical Congress in
Moscow.
Prof. Henry J. Gomberg, assis-
tant director of the Michigan Me-
morial-Phoenix Project, was in-
vited in April, 1957, to attend a
meeting of the Soviet Academy of
Sciences on the uses of radio-
activity. While in Moscow, he vis-
ited the university, research in-
stitutes, and the atomic power
plant just outside Moscow.
Prof. Gomberg will discuss the
nuclear aspects of the Soviet sci-
entific program.
In August, 1956, Prof. Orren C.
Mohler of the astronomy depart-
ment visited Moscow, Leningrad
and the Crimea, primarily to vis-
it. the Astrophysical Observatory
in the Crimea. Prof. Mohler will
describe and compare the Soviet
and. American astronomical faci-
lities and accomplishments.
Prof. Emeritus George Y. Rain-
ich of the mathematics depart-
ment will acefas chairman for the
porgram, which will be held in
Aud. B, Angell Hall.
The program is open to the
public without charge.

Prof. James K. Pollock, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, will speak on "Modern
Political Trends in Germany" in
Rm. 3G of the Union at 7:30 p.m.
today.
In discussing this subject, Prof.
Pollock will use two movies on
West Germany. He will deal
chiefly with the last West Ger-
marl election, from which he re-

cently returned.
An advisor to the Departme
of State on West German po
ties, he is considered an author
on German government. AP
World War II, he'helped to set
the new West German gover

JOININ'THE
VANGUARD'.
E have entered the age of fully guided supersonle
missile flight. This state can be attributed, in large
measure, to scientists and other technical men at the
Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) of The Johns Hop-
kins University. Since 1945 we have been in the vanguard
of the guided missile field.
Young engineers and scientists with above-average
ability will want to know more about APL: how we
built the first ramjet engine, the first large booster rocket,
achieved fully guided supersonic flight as far back as
1948, developed TALOS, one of the country's most suc-
cessful long range missiles,.and how we are presently
engaged in missile programs of such urgency that little
is spared to facilitate their progress.
You'll also be interested in finding out why the record
of achievement of our 550-man engineering and scientific
staff is exceptional, about how we can allow greater
scope for creative thinking because our sole goal is
technical achievefnent.
Our laboratories, covering over 350,000 square feet;
are located in rolling countryside midway between
Washington, D. C. and Baltimore, Md. These facilities,
combined with those of our 18 major contractors and
Government test stations provide exceptional opportu-
nities for staff members to develop and extend their
capabilities.
For detailed information on APL, an organization of
and for technical men and scientists, ask your Placement
Officer for our new 30-page publication or write: Pro-
fessional Staff Appointments.
