On Watersheds
"The price of one large flood

"Professor, you ain't right!"
On the second day ot the som

Welnstein introduced himself to
his new law instructor.
Bob is the most unforgettable
ntudont of that instructor, Fred
crick K. Beutel, professor of law.
On the first duy in class, Beutel
hud quoted a case from a law
text. The next day, Bob came to
class and proved the text wrong.
Bob was the son of an immi
grant family thut settled In New
Orleans, La. Living in one oi the
poorer sections of town, Bob re
ceived a mediocre education. He
was poorly equipped to tuke on
law school work.
When he first entered Tulane
university, he could not even
write well. In his first year he
had quite a bit of difficulty with

Bob would lot nothing stop him
In currying out his work. As far
as his classmates were concerned,
they all huted him. That is, all

Dr. Stevens has "been president
of Grinnell since 1940. Before that
he served as professor of applied

Recently Dr. Stevens was ap

Prior to his appointment, he

In order to receive credit for that
course. With a week left in the
semester, the instructor assigned
Bob an experiment which could
not possioly be finished In less
than 36 hours of work in the lub.
Since the lub was open for only
a limited time each day, the
chemistry instructor figured that
Bob could not possibly work the
experiment and would therefore
be forced to take the course over
again but in the conventional
This, however, did not faze
Bob. He borrowed the key to the
lub from a janitor and worked
36 hours straight and finished the
experiment three days before the
deadline. So the instructor was
forced to give him credit in the
course. Beutel, though, said he
does suggest anyone to follow
Bob's unusuul methods.
The night watchman at the law
library used to put Bob out at
2 a.m. nearly every morning of

made a big issue out of the af

A smoke tunnel was built by
Keith Cossart and John Nixon
during the past two years. Cossart
will give a demonstration of the
project in the mechanical en

A smoke tunnel is used to
study the principles of fluid

his second year in law school. He

more for it than anyone else.
As for the present, he is prac

as an assistant to the federal dis

Beutel said that he will never

ublllty for accomplishing the

In order to find the solution,
a student would have to read the

read all of the cases sighted in
those secondury cuscs.
