If you happen to be suffering
from a "loquacious professor"-
that is, can't seem to write as fast
as he can talk-this may be a so-
lution to your problem.

A new experimental class in the
Thomas System of shorthand has
recently been organized for
dents in business education.
THE COURSE carries no Uni-
versity credit but its instructor,
Elsie Freitag, expects that by the
end of the summer session, her
students will be taking words at
the rate of 60 to 80 per minute.
Miss Freitag said that the av-
erage rate in longhand is about
37 words a minute.
The Thomas System is compar-
atively new and according to Miss
Freitag, it is much simpler and
requires only about half as long
to learn as other shorthand sys-
tems in use today.
* * *
THOMAS, because he felt that
the shorthand systems being
taught at the time took too long
to teach, published a system of
his own in 1935.
In this system, he combined
some of the principles of other
methods in devising a shorthand
that is claimed to be just as fast,
but muchesimpler than other
Miss Freitag said that she has
trained people in the course who
have never had any shorthand ex-
perience in twenty hours and those
with a knowledge of another sys-
tem, in about half that time.
* * *
THE THOMAS system is a con-
sonal system. As Miss Freitag ex-
plained, the first vowel of the
word is left alone and the remain-
ing vowels are dropped.
The class meets at 4 p.m., Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday in Rm.

This dramatic struggle occu-
pies a great share of the world's
attention today. Elsewhere in
the world there are conflicts
and frictions involving great re-
ligions. In the past few years,
Moslem fought Jew in the Mid-
dle East in what the Arabs pro-
claimed a "Holy War;" Hindus
and Moslems were at each oth-
ers' throats in sprawling Asia.
In other areas there have been
islands of repression where free-
dom of worship as it is known to
most of the West could not be
said to exist.
IN THE WEST appeals have
been sounded by religious leaders
for a closing of ranks, but the
pleas run afoul of old quarrels.

ple, the age-old debate of Catho-
lics and Protestants over separa-

is, rather, a methodical, grinding-

Organized religion contends it
offers a rallying point for pos-

Thus, the Communists seek to
deprive the Church of followers
by cutting off means of educa-

The drive has been toward gov-
