During registration, a student
who apparently didn't know that
he needed the signature of the
dean of the college to register
for 20 hours was stopped at
the check desk. When he was
asked for the missing signature,
he looked amazed and said,
"I've registered for 20 hours
the last three semesters with
out permission. Why do I have
to get it now?"
Although some what non
plused by this evidence of
scholastic effort, the checker
still insisted that formalities be
observed, even in his case. The
student, probably thinking of
the trouble he wanted to avoid,
decided to give it one last try.

that make any difference?"

t Chancellor R. G. Gustavson
said the electron miscroscope' will

The Laboratory, operated by the

be available to all faculty mem

several other research instruments
which the University hopes to

Donors to the electron micro

The electron miscroscope, Dr.
Gustavson said, came into fairly
general use about ten years ago.
It is an instrument containing a
beam of electrons moving at high
