Scientist To Discuss
Sunspot Cycle Period
Dr. Sydney Chapman, advisory
scientific director of the Geophys
ical Institute at the University of
Alaska, will speak Wednesday at
8 p.m. in Love Library Auditorium.
He will discuss "The Internation
al Geophysical Year" which is the
first in a series of lectures for the
local observance of Columbia Uni
v e r s i t y Bicentennial celebra
tion. .He will also participate in a
seminar in Ferguson Hall, Room
U5. Wednesday at 3 p.m.
During Wednesday and Thurs
day mornings, ' Chapman, who
is presently visiting professor at
the State University of Iowa, will
be available to meet with interst-
ed students and staff members. Dr.
Robert Chasson, assistant profes
sor of physics, extension 3174, will
arrange the meetings. ' .
Chapman is president of the
International Organizing Commis
sion for the International Geo
physical Year, which will extend
from July 1, 1957, to Dec. 31, 1958.
This period which covers the ap
proach to the maximum of the
next sunspot cycle is so desig
ties are located in small towns,
the libraries must stay open be
cause students have no place else
to go to study or do research.
So the next question is what
is the need for a library on Sun
day? Frank Lundy, director of Uni
versity libraries, said he feels
there is a definite need for Sun
day use of the library. With the
addition of the new Quadrangle,
there has been heavier use of the
library in evenings than ever be
fore, he added. Too often Sunday
is the only free time students can
study yet reference work is im
possible without library facili
ties and a quiet place to concen
trate is often impossible to find.
Why, then doesn't the Univer
sity make its huge library avail
able for student use on Sunday? Ac
cording to Lundy, it is all a ques
tion of . money.

Three Examples Stated
The faculty committee reviewed
the meeting at which Nor

COA, was called to explain negli
gence in following Student Coun
cil election rules at a meeting of
the Judiciary Committee. The vio
lated rules were: 1) notify the Stu

on which the election is to be held
2) provide persons to operate the
polling place, including a faculty
member. 3) provide persons to
count the votes including a faculty
During Tuesday's' meeting other
alleged irregularities were brought
up by the Council. Jack Rogers
president of the Student Council
in the absence of Art Raun, chair
man of the Judiciary Committee
reveiewed these points from a let

tion Committee chairman.
Discrepancy of 80 Ballots
Rogers noted that a discrepancy
of 80 ballots was found after the
election, Nov. 11. He stated that
there were 1523 names in Coun'
cils' registration book, and 1603
ballots were found in the ballot
box. Rasdal also said that although
the COA . mentioned the date of
Nov. 11 in a letter telling them of
the first election; the Elections
committee never officially ap
proved the election.

azthird, whether the need of a li
brary on Sunday is great enough
to justify . straining the present
budget to include the additional
hours service and whether
those in charge could be persuad

see the library open on Sunday,
he objects to opening it without
additional funds. "It would be
stretching too thin," he said. "It is
possible to open on Sunday," he
said and added, "we are operat

staff to do a good job."

Text Of Decision
This is the complete text of the

the Judiciary Committee of
the Student Council in declar
ing the election of the Honor

in view of the undue delay on .
the part of the Student Council
in invalidating the election and
because of no evidence of fraud
