By ANNA MAE HALVERSON A pre-exam break has been giv en the business administration stu dents at Indiana university in the form of a three-day “reading pe riod’’ just before the semester ex aminations during which all class es in the business school are dis missed. Giving students an opportunity to review courses, this system re leases them from having to pre pare daily assignments for the three days preceding final exam inations. All late work may be made up, term papers completed and reviewing done before the eight-day examination period be gins. The University of Texas has been considering a similar system. Voted on favorably by the college of arts and sciences, the plan, in cluding a ten-day reading period before exams, must now be sub mitted to the general university faculty, which is to meet May 17. Could It Be? Drop here a tear for Johnny, His heart was none too strong; It was a shock that killed him— Too great to bear for long. It seems his course required .Some reading to be done. He sent his call slips to the stacks, They filled them, every one. ■—Willie, University of Washington Daily. * * * Submarine Zoology Diving helmets and bathing suits were correct classroom apparel for the entire zoology class at the University of Miami recently. As a departure in their nature stud ies, the class donned diving hel mets and took turns exploring the bottom of Silver springs at Ocala, Florida.

Busy Lawyers Take Time Out For 'Ball' Game Law school students must study very hard, much harder than the common lot of scholars, so the assertions of neophyte barristers have claimed during the past many years. And this claim is their proffered reason for maintaining a student body and an honor roll listing separate from the rest of the campus. Law school examinations for the term are scheduled to begin next week. Why, then, inquired visitors in Oregon’s second and third floors last night, is it that Reva Hearns, Frankie Nash, Tal lant Greenough, and Jason Lee were not studying last night at the late hour of 7:30 ? Investigators and the curious, including Prof. Schumacher, found the bar’s best having a fast game of “work-up” outside the Law Review offices, using a tennis ball, a copy of the Oregon Law Review, and a wastepaper basket for equipment. The game was called when the paper-bound bat broke.
