Form I/O Club
A new club is forming orf cam
pus. Unusual in that it has no of
ficers. no dues, and no limits on
joining, the only entrance require
ments is an interest in geography.
Beginning with a nucleus of 15
members, the club had its first
formal meeting Wednesday night.
Meetings are tentatively set for
every other Wednesday night.
The group plans no social pro
grams. but wants to bring in
source persons who are acquaint
ed with geography or its applica
tions, and hold seminars so all ma>
benefit from their knowledge. At
the next meeting a foreign student
from Iran will present a paper on
political geographies of Iran.
The club wants to attract all
persons interested in the tech
niques, methodology, and applica
tions of geography: not merely
students or majors, but also faculty
members and townspeople.

The new four-story science build

partment will occupy looms in this
bottom three floors of the top
part of the "T". Physics will be in
the basement, second floor, and
