also lose their titles, for upstairs
they are referred to as "Doctor."
My first acquaintance with

"Doctor Soandso, patient."
After a brief pause Doctor So
andso put in an appearance. He
used the usual right-this-way
technique, led me into a room
equipped with 60 dentist chairs
and parked "patient" in one of the
usual type. He looked at the of

each draft-eligible student who
has not taken the test do so as
soon as possible and that stu

end In January 1953 should take
the December 4, 1952 test so
they will have a test score in
their cover sheets before the
end of their academic year, t
which time their boards will
open and reconsider their cases
to determine whether they
should be deferred students.
Students eligible for deferment
as an undergraduate student are
those having a score of 70 on the
test or specified rank in class.
These ranks are set at the upper
half of the male freshman class,
upper two thirds of the male
sophomore class, or . upper three
fourths of the male junior class.
Students accepted for admis
sion or attending a graduate
school prior to July 1, 1951
