'The Studtnt Council, within the
limits of as Constitution, is function

Green, an exchange student from
Green, a representative of the
Cosmopolitan Club on the Student
Council, thinks that a student coun
cil is very valuable for students in
order to acquaint them with parlia'
"Modern society is highly organ
ized and, therefore, people need to
know how to run their many or
ganizations according to demo
cratic principles," Gunnar said.
He told that at the University of
Oslo there are very few university
sponsored organizations, so there is
no need for any controlling body
like our Student Council. At the
University of Oslo, each department
has a student committee which dis
cusses problems regarding their
curriculum. Every department has
their representative in the All-University
Council where representa
tives meet with the administration
and voice their opinions.
"I am for the secret ballot in so
far as it prevents undue pressure
being put on representatives," said
Green. He believes that the rep
resentatives on the Student Council
should act to the best advantage,
first, to the student body as a whole
and secondly, to the organizations
which they represent.
Since coming to the University
from Oslo, Norway, in September,
1954, he has observed many differ
ences between our University and
Oslo's. First, campus organized
activities do not exist in the same
sense in Norway as they do here.
la Norway, they have social organi
nations such as their University
organized sports clubs. These Uni
versity sports clubs are exactly on
the same level as private sports
clubs. Anyone who is enrolled in
the university can belong to the

There is a special "Rowing and
Sculling Club" in Oslo which is,
perhaps, the best rowing club in the
country. The boys and girls belong
to separate sports clubs, but they
work in close co-operation with one
another. Green stated that there are
no fraternities or sororities at Oslo
"Living at Acacia as a guest has
helped me understand the cam
pus better," remarked Gunnar.
"My main objection is, however,
the lack of privacy is not so bad,
but the housing problem is terri
ble! There is a large building proj
ect that is going on at the present
time, which provides more hous
ing for students all of the time."
The housing project is called
"The Students' Town." In the
apartment buildings, each apart
ment consists of five separate
rooms. There is a separate
roo mfor each student, and then
the students share the kitchen,
repair shops, big living room with
fireplace, and game room. In
the summer, the apartments are
closed to students and opened to
tourists as hotel rooms. Some stu
dents work there during their sum
mer vacations as maids and bell

To show that an acute housing
problem does exist, first semester
students usually live in tents until
they find a place to, stay. Some
times they live in these crude dwel
lings as long as a month.
In "The Students' Town," the stu
dents do not have a house mother.
"They do exactly what they want,
within limits," said Green, "and
everything seems to go very
smoothly." He also pointed out tha

Green remarked that gaining a
university education there is more
important than here; it is not as
common and it means a great deal
to every student to be able to furth
er his education. The students get
general education in high school,
and then in college, they concen
trate in one special field.
All classes are lectures and most
of them do not have compulsory

al students, however, do have com
pulsory attendance. Green said,
"The students go to college to learn
and are not pushed in to an edu
cation by their parents."

milk is pumped through a small
cone of steel wire at a pressure of
2,000 pounds per square inch. This
is termed homogenization. Crowe
said that this process results in re

The milk then goes through pipes
to the bottling machine. This ma

"Contrasts" is an anthology for
students interested in writing,
Knoll explained. The book contains
essays, poems and stories which
contrast both ideas and techniques
of expression. He cited as an ex
ample of contrasting opinions, an
essay by Frederick Lewis Allen
claiming that the American stand
ard of writing is becoming better.
Following this, an essay by Ber
nard Iddings Bell expresses the
opinion that the American stand
ard has lowered.
Knoll continued, "each statement
of opinion" is greeted with an op
posite opinion from a second au
thor. "The ideas and techniques
are paired and contrasted," he
Knoll stated that he based the
anthology on the "true assump
tion" that students learn best from
controversy. He added that the
two basic ideas of the anthology
were to point out the differences
in ideas and techniques, as well
as the contrasting ideas of one
generation from another. "These,"
Knoll said, "should lead the stu
dent to the point where he can '
draw his own conclusions."
At the present time, he is writ
ing a "rather elaborate manual"
for instructors use in teaching
from the anthology.
He has compiled a selected list
of paper-bound books for student
reference and use. The list, printed
in the back of the book, is "to my
knowledge" the only list of this
type published today, Knoll said.
Four campus religious organiza
tions have announced daily Lenten
devotional services to be held in
the chapel of the Cotner School of
Religion from 12:30 to 12:50 p.m.,
beginning Wednesday and continu

The services, which are open to
all students, are being sponsored
by Presby House, Wesley Founda
tion, the Albright-Otterbein Fellow
ship (E.UJ3.J and the Student Fel
lowship of Baptists and Disciples
Rev. Rex Knowles, Rev. Richard
Nutt and Rev, Robert Davis will
each speak orice a week. Guest
speakers will give talks two times
each week during the series.
The purpose of the services is to
provide a period of worship each
weekday during Lent.
