No Studying So Far?

to study for." But a sophomore in
music says she studies "whenever
I gel a chance,” about 15 hours
Some students feel a lot of study
is necessary. Majoring in business
at Baylor, a senior commented.
"My courses overlup too much to
require extensive study.” A boy at
tending a teacher's college said, "I
study 10 hours or less—much less.”
Comments from students on
campus tallied with opinions of
college students elsewhere.
A UO senior in journalism said,
“I think 20 hours of study a week
is about the satuation point.”
Art Major Comments
Majoring in art, Phyllis Ranney,
sophomore, remarked, ”1 find 8-10
hours per week enough for me.
You can't study much for the
courses in my major.”
Many Oregon students agreed
that they would profit by more
than their present average 10-15
hours study. "I don't study
enough,” said Barbara Tescher,
freshman in pre-nursing. "I can
get by with less than 10 hours of
study a week, but my gradepoint
doesn't turn out too high.”
Philip O'Keefe, freshman in pre
law, remarked, "I should study
more, but I get by with the 10-20
hours I study now.” A senior in
general science who studies 5 hours
a week thought that “Really,
people should study, but it’s great
to be a 3rd term senior,”

Commenting on studying at Ore

students don't study enough. You

Students who put in the 20 and
30 hours a week studying had vari
ous reasons for doing so. Admit
ted a sophomore in liberal arts,
"I'm not too bright. I have to
study more than 30 hours a week."
A graduate in chemistry, Sid Sher
man, said, "I study 20-30 hours a
week. I think It’s a necessity;
otherwise, I wouldn't do it."
"I think the more time you put
in studying, the more you get out
of it," was the opinion expressed
by Jerry Adam, junior in industrial
The students in law, known for
their heavy schedules, study more
than the average college student.
One student in the law school said,
“I study, now, 40-50 hours a week.
When I was an underclassman, I
got by with 5-10 hours. Now, I’m
a second year law student.”
In some courses, studying time
is not always occupied by reading.
A junior in journalism said, "I
spend 10-15 hours a week in actual
study,” but explained, "I do about
20 hours of work, including the
time spend on magazine writing,
layouts, copywriting and other
work involved with a journalism
A junior girl in English who
couldn’t estimate the time spent in
study commented, “I don't have a
regular schedule and I don’t study

The movie was directed by Mikio
Naruse, and stars Sachiko Chiba
as Kimiko, the modern business
Kiri. The film was adapted from
the novel, "Two Wives,” by Minoru
"Kimino” shows a modern Ja
pan, and stresses the similarity of
the East and West instead of the
differences. There are brief scenes
of the countryside and amusing se
quences of Japanese domestic life,
most of them deliberately humor
ous. Theer is much delicate comedy
in the characterizations.
The story revolves around Kimi
ko, a young Japanese gril, who
journeys to a distant mountain vil
lage to bring back her wandering
father. She discovers a half-broth
er and half-sister of whose exist
ence she was completely unaware.
