This effect was obtained from the maze learning and retention pro cess which contains 14 units formed in a pathway to the food with side branches in the wrong direction.' Half of the rats were normal and half were irradiated. Hair Falls Out The irradiation process exposes only the rat's head to the x-rays, by placing the animal's head in a lead form called an exposure cyl inder. The x-rays cause the hair on the rat's head over this area to fall out, and the rat becomes sick for a week so that he does not eat or drink much water. About two weeks after the irradi ation process, the rat becomes normal again and will be sold for breeding purposes.

Chester J. Dieste, pro fessor of military science and tac tics, announced Tuesday. According to present plans, seven Army ROTC cadets are expected to receive commissions in Febru ary and 112 in June. Before the Department of Army decision, cadets had received no positive assurance that they would receive commissions, Col. Diestel said. It depended on the number that the Army could absorb on active duty, he explained. February graduates will be or dered to active duty prior to June 30, and those graduating between May 1, 1955, and April 30, 1956, will be ordered to active duty be tween July 1, 1955, and June 30, 1956.

These are white rats and black and white mixed variety. The two kinds differ only a little in temperment. ' During the two years, 500 rats have beeen used by the psychology department because rats of the same age, three months old, are used in all experiments. Blair, a part-time assistant, de votes between 12 and 15 hours a week to his experiment, although on some weeks there is more work. Even though he is working in the experimental phase of psychology, he some day wants to participate in the academic side Blair commented that the area of irradiation was new compared to other areas in psychology. Also, he said, there are few publications dealing with this subject. ordered to active duty in the Army, those individuals who have had prior military service can qualify for draft-deferred status, Col. Dies tel added. Graduates will be permitted to volunteer for the particular month of entry to active duty within quota limitations, Col. Diestel said. "Last year some ROTC graduates received commissions in branches of the Army other than those in which they had been enrolled for ROTC training," Col. Diestel stated. Whether this will be necessary for current graduates will not be known until mid January 1955. Although the Department of the Army has not announced a def inite policy, it appears likely that students now enrolled in advanced Army ROTC who normally would graduate in June, 1956, or Febru ary, 1957, will be commissioned and ordered to active duty as officers, Col. Diestel added. in Turkey has been in considera tion since 1929, when Memal Atta turk, then ruler and after whom the new university is named, first introduced the idea. The establishment of a univer sity in Turkey patterned after American colleges will be a new development in the new East. Most of the other universiites in the area are patterned after European uni versities. Instructors will have to be trained in the United States.

Character Building Navy Program Described As 'Experimental1 F. a. wintersteen, curt, unapiain Corps USN, spoke Tuesday after noon on the Navy's Character Build ing Program to University NROTC members. The Navy's Character Building Program, a program instituted at the request of the Secretary of Defense, is only in experimental stages now, said Chaplain Winter steen. but it has been highly suc cessful in its uses so far. The purpose of the program is aimed at helping men to think clearly when making decisions which involve moral issues rather than telling them what to do.

"The average man in the street knows America by two men President Eisenhower and Sen. Joe McCarthy," he brought out. "Overwhelmingly Europeans art opposed to McCarthy," Rencki said, "not because of his anti-communist measures, but because of the way he applies his measures." Europeans would not favor an American blockade of China, Rencki said, because the risks of European occupation are greater. They do not believe a blockade would produce the results the Americans seek, anyway, he added. "I was amazed to see American students so interested in general international affairs," Rencki said, "but they do not know enough about European unity." Members of the European Move ment suffered a major defeat when the French Parliament voted down the European Defense Community, the Polish-bora internationalist said "When the West substituted the Western European Union for EDC, the integration of a supranational system was replaced by a military alliance of states which retain their sovereignty," Rencki said. The European Movement had hoped to establish a unified Europe with a federal government patterned aft er that of the United States.
