In Aztec days the capital of Mexico—Tenochtitlan—was a city of canals much like Venice, the National Geographic Society says. Yet it was situated where Mexico City stands today, more than 7,000 feet above sea level. Virginia built the first toll road in the United States in 1786, the Little River Turnpike from Alex andria on the Potomac to Snig ger's Gap across the mountains east of Winchester.

No, they DON'T allow them to date students. Dean Sidney W. Little of the School of Architecture and Allied Arts promptly cleared up these perennial questions in a recent interview. Professional female models, usu ally brought in from Portland or San Francisco, occassionally pose in the altogether for life drawing classes, Little said. Male models and student models, however, must wear bathing suits, or an equiva lent thereof, he emphasized. Little added that any non-academic con tact with the professional models is taboo. “No tirade” System L'aed If nude models are attractions to prospective art or architecture students, they might be further enticed by the fact that the school uses a "no-grade” system in eval uating all upper-division creative work. By this system, the student either passes or flunks in his creat ive work. No effort is made to grade beyond this point in any creative work requiring judgment and opinion in evaluation, Little explained. “We are I'nlque” "We are unique in using this system,” Little said. Other art schools have expressed a desire to IT use this sarm' method, but have not been able to convince their registrars of its value, he said. Another unique feature of the art s"hool is the fact ttiat no com pletion deadlines are imposed upon students for their creative work. Students arc told the normal length of time which should be required for the various projects, but they may spend more or elss than this period of time, according to their own judgment, Little raid. Masters’ Degrees The School of Architecture and Allied arts offers nine undergrad uate degrees and four masters' de grees. These degrees Include, be sides architecture, such fields ns ceramics, painting, weaving, sculp ture and art education. Teacher training as well as pro fessional preparation is included in the school's program, Little ex plained. The art education pro gram is aimed primarily at train ing students for high school teach ing, he said. Sculpture majors are prepared for either a professional career or teaching on the college level. Jewelry Course Available Of the lcsH-publicatcd art fields, the school offers work in jewelry making and boasts a lithography training plant. In the painting field, the empha sis is on contemporary conceptions, according to Little.

Besides the annual bazaar sponsored by the school, students’ work Is frequently sent to other exhibitions throughout the country, with tlie school paying the freight charges. Supplementary Instruction Visiting lecturers are brought to the campus from time to time to supplement Instruction by .the school's 30 Instructors. Architecture occupies the largest number of students in the school. The architecture school is the ninth largest in the United States, with an enrollment of 410. Sta tistically, thia means that 3.4 per cent of all the architecture stu dents ip the country are enrolled in this school. Of the architecture students, 94.4 per cent are Oregonians, which Is nn unusually high percentage of "local" enrollment for an architec ture school, according to Little. "Mortality Kate" High The "mortality rate" of Oregon’s architecture school is 40 per cent, Little said. About 30 per cent drop, or are dropped, at the end of their sophomore year, and another 10 per cent of the drops occur during the first part of the third year's work, he said. Little explained that this high drop percentage is common to all architecture schools. Some stu dents’ conceptions of the architec ture field are considerably differ ent from the actual case and many of them realize this after a couple of years' work In the school, he said. Liberal Art* K*s|iilreJ Thirty hours of liberal arts work *ml 36 hours of architecture courses arc required in the lower division level for architecture ma iors. Once the student has satis fied his lower division require ments, he concentrates more and more on design. By his fifth and final year he is taking 10 credit hours of design, which means that he is actually spending about 50 hours per week at his drawing board, Little said. In this school, the student may specialize in landscaping, design or structural work. The structural aspect of the field invojves more nglneering work than the other two fields, Little pointed out. Demand (ireat The present demand for archi tects is somewhat greuter than the supply, according to Little.
