EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
in a series of fourteen interpretative
articles on political trends and per-
onalities in Washington by a Daily

unique and interesting education-

Nelda Napier, University junior,
is one of the 69 political science
majors from 44 schools around the
country who are getting an inti-
mate first-hand view of the gov-
ernment in action this summer
through a "Student Citizenship
Seinar" sponsored by the YM-
Y WCA and the Friends.
Jobs and places to live were
found in advance for each of these
students who spend four evenings
a week in seminars with promin-
ent Washington figures.
I ran across Nelda when she
was attending Senate committee
hearings on her day off and was
subsequently introduced to Mrs.
Abrahams, a rather fabulous per-
son better know to the seminar
group as "Joe." She is responsi-
ble for the nine-week series which
provides a cross-sectional view of
Col. Carl E Henion, Prof. of
Military Science and Tactics at
the University, will attend a reg-
ional ROTC conference at the
University of Minnesota August
The purpose of the conference,
which is one of five regional gath-
erings in the United States prior
to the opening of the 1947-48
school year, is to consider and de-
velop all aspects of the ROTC
program. Following the regional
conferences there will be a general
conference at the Pentagon Build-
ing in Washington, D.C.

"Joe and her husband (a UNESC

"Mr. Joe,") many of the govern-

One night each week a special-

fairs, "Palestine Today," "Occu-

with AF of L officials.
On Sundays Nelda and her
friends get away from the top pol-
icy level for awhile and chat about
their own jobs. These range from
playground directing to doing re-
search for the AF of L or prepar-
ing condensed reports of commit-
tee hearings for the Legislative
About 100 members of Congress,
I learned, have standing orders
for these reports of all commit-
tee hearings. Just how the re-
mainder keep up with what is
going on is not quite clear.
The social climate is delight-
fully stimulating and life is a far
cry from being \ all work and
study. The gang takes boat trips
up the Potomac, attends recep-
tions by the British Ambassador,
and holds its own Friday night
dances at the International Stu-
No, "Joe" isn't taking applica-
tions for next year yet. She won't
be available to set up the semin-
ar next year and the sponsoring
agencies will look a long ways to
find someone to fill her shoes. If
they succeed, the "Y's" will an-
nounce it next spring.

After a ten-hour voyage from its

The layer of sand drifted in

by a large, toothed suction cup,

from the 'stern.
In about three days, according
