a week. Each participating child
will have an Index card and rec-
cords kept will indicate the con
dition of the. toy when it is re
turned. TOYS, SUCH as a doll car
riage, scooter and large toys will
be available if the child has
taken fairly good care of prev
iously borrowed toys. "Adop
tion" papers granting ownership
will make it possible for girls to
"adopt" dolls of which they seem
particularly fond.

Down Slips
Sent Out
To 1350
Sent Majority
By Tuesday 1,350 students
will have received one or more
down slips. Of these, about 450
students were down in two or
more subjects.
However, Lee W. Chatfield, as
sistant dean of student affairs,
said that many of these downs
are due to illness or unsatisfac
tory work in one test and do not
necessarily indicate failure.
FRESHMEN AND sophomores
receive the most downs. There
are three categories of down
slips: "I" or incomplete; "C", in
dicating unsatisfactory work, but
redeemable; and "F", whith
shows failure.
The new system of having
downs at the end of the fourth
and tenth weeks instead of the
sixth and twelfth was set up to
aid the new students. .
Chatfield said that by finding
out a student's deficiencies be
fore the semester is too far along,
