the power of suggestion that
many prominent citizens shortly
reported unpleasant encounters
with the Jersey Devil.
The devil did not remain a lo-
cal phenomena by any means. He
was reportedly seen in California
and New Jersey on the same
night, and at various times in
Pennsylvania, Delaware and
Maryland. Scientists. propounded
theories about still existent pre-
historic beasts, and people be-

The devil was later found to be
nothing more than a cleverly dis-

America's gullibility is the Orson

While abroad, the students will

At Michigan State College, four
prominent officials, including Gov.
Kim Sigler, expressed disagree-
ment over the right of the federal
government to assume the func-
tions of the individual states, at
the initial meeting of the politi-
cal science workshop last week.
Gov. Sigler expressed the fear
that the stretching of federal re-

steps on the road to dictatorial

The Third Annual Music Con-
ference, sponsored jointly by the
School of Music and the Division
of Adult Education and Public
Services, will meet at the Univer-
sity of Indiana this week.

The University will also'be host

Miss Zaturenska, a recognized po-

At the University of Illinois,
President George D. Stoddard, in
a speech relayed last week from
the University of North Carolina,
said that "as education goes, so
goes the country. To teach the
young is to estimate the future
and to prepare for it."

students. With a larger program
than before the war, the depart-
ment is operating with a smaller
. The lack of housing in Ann Ar-
bor for additional instructors is
hindering the growth of the rap-
idly-expanding German depart-
ment. Comparing this summer's
enrollment of 375 with the 284
figure of last summer, Prof. Hen-
ry W. Nordmeyer, chairman of
the department, declared, "If this
indicates a trend, it is not in the
best interests of efficient teach-
ing." Classrooms are scattered
over the campus, he said, but
space is adeuate.
The psychology department,
which closed registration after
the first day in the spring term,
may receive some relief in the
fall. The situation is expected to
be eased by the switch of psychol-
ogy 31 from group two to group
three. In addition, the department
has requested the use of Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre for two
courses to fill the need for large
classrooms. Office space and more
room for graduate students are
other pressing problems.
A limited enrollment again ap-
pears inevitable in the chemistry
department. Although some class-
rooms in the new building addi-
tion are- expected to be completed
by September, the work of con-
necting the two units will actually
reduce the total space available.

A similar situation exists in the
zoology department, which turned
away 200 studentsginRthe spring
term. Prof. George LaRue, de-
partment chairman, summed it
up: "We took advantage of all
available hours, even scheduling
noon and evening sessions, but we
still couldn't accommodate all
:ho applied for the beginning
^ourses, and we won't be able to
take any more in the fall than we
did in the spring." He emphasized
this did not mean students will
miss courses, but that they would
only be temporarily delayed in

"I was never in a shelter during
the bombings," he boasts.
Plans begun in the fall of 1946
were culminated last month, when
the Landeckers came to America
to join their son, who had arrived
here ten years ago on a scholar-
ship from the International Stud-
"We arrived in New York on a
bright, sunshiny Monday morn-
ing," Mrs. Landecker said, "and
the Statue of Liberty there in the
bay was thrilling beyond all we
had heard of it."
They were immediately struck
with the free-happy air of Ameri-
ca." Americans have a character-
istic strut as they walk down the
street, Mrs. Landecker said, "one
that points to the constant light-
ness of spirit, the feeling of inde-
pendence about them.
"It's exhilarating to watch and
live with Americans-to see their
chests beam when they talk of
their country," the Landeckers
agreed. "It will be wonderful to
join them in that pride."
