Forty-five of the sixty vet
erans on the campus last night
voted down the formation of a
committee to form plans of or
ganization of a separate group
of veterans on the campus.
Kenneth Geiger, who orig
inated the plan for the meeting
and veterans’ organization, was
called upon by George Luoma,
who was elected temporary chair
man, to explain the purposes and
functions of such an organization.
According to Geiger, who said last
week that the organization was “to
form an active social veterans'
group,’’ the motive now would be to
help incoming veterans “overcome
any obstacles they may encounter
as they register.”
An open discussion was held in
regard to the formation of such an
organization. A general feeling for
the use of more initiative on the
part of all campus men students
to promote social and other activ
ities was expressed by several vet
“This view was brought forth
particularly due to the present
lack of a definite social program
for all students,” said Mr. Luoma.
The organization of an active
campus veterans' group, either as
a membership for all veterans or
some kind of advisory council,
should not be considered a dead
issue, according to Luoma, because
of the group’s decision not to
formulate definite plans at this
New Adviser System
Put to Use This Term
“With all arrangements at last completed there goes into
effect this fall for the first time a new system for conference
between advisers and students,” Mr. L. K. Shumaker, director
of lower division advisers, announced yesterday.
The lower division advisers’ office, on the left as one enters
Johnson hall, will be used as a conference room for meetings
between advisers and students.
Some advisers who have many
advisees are nearly swamped just
before and during registration by
students trying to arrange sched
ules for the • next term. It is
planned that sometime during the
term, preferably the middle, each
adviser and student will meet in
the conference room.
Thinning Made Easier
With the help of the student's
balance sheet, prepared by Mr.
Shumaker to show exactly what
requirements have been met and
what the student has yet to com
plete, his next term’s schedule can
easily be planned and registration
will become simply a matter of
collecting a few signatures and
paying one’s tuition. If the regis
trar or dean of personnel needs to
be consulted they are readily avail
able, since all the offices are now
in Johnson hall.
Previously duplicates were kept
of each student’s record, but since
that involved a great deal of cler
ical work and resulted in errors
and delay, Mr. Shumaker is keep
ing only the originals on file this
year. The conference room will be
Mr. Shumaker’s headquarters until
registration ends October 7.
Students who wish to take
adaptability and ability tests (voca
tional guidance) and are not tak
ing any educational clinic courses
(methods of study, etc.) should
make an appointment with Mr.
Shumaker or Dr. Killgallon. They
can be contacted by phoning Mrs.
Cullender, secretary of the per
Comprise the YWCA committee which aims to recruit new workes.
From left to riffht are Charlene Davidson; Ann Scripter, chairman}
Mary Eon Welch, and Altha Paul.
