In Great Britain, Prime Minister

1 Senate Approves Harlan
The Senate has approved the appointment of John Marshall Harlan
as an associate justice of the Supreme Court, clearing the way for
action on the controversial public school segregation issue. Supreme
Court arguments on implementing the abolishment of segregation have
been up since the death of Justice Robert H. Jackson last October.
Opponents have attacked the appointment of Harlan on alleged
lack of judicial experience and association with internationalist groups
and with former New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey.

Useful In Problems
"The method of geometrical or
ideal presentation is useful for
solving any problem," Dr. George
Polya, professor of mathematics
at Stanford University, said Tues
day in a classroom lecture at the
To solve a problem more easily,
Dr. Polya said one should rely
heavily on past experiences or
formulas which can be used to
solve the present problem.
He said the problem does not
exist until there is a determined
desire to solve it, then the problem
must be seen in general, not just
the part that requires solution.
To illustrate this point, Dr. Polya
drew a representation of a cone
with its top cut off, which he
referred to as "the lampshade."
He then proceeded to solve for
the area of the lateral surface of
the "lampshade" by a method he
described as a "backward solu
tion." To explain the "backward solu
tion," he drew several completed
cones alongside the "lampshade"
and by computing their related
parts by simple formulas, he was
able to solve the more complicated
problem of the "lampshade."
"Generally, a person trying to
solve a problem does not know
what he wants," Dr. Polya said.
He outlined some steps which a
person should take to make the
solution of the problem easier.
These are: (1) a firm resolution to
solve the problem; (2) list the
knowns and unknowns of the prob
lem; (3) plan, try to connect the
present problem with a familiar
problem having the same or a
similiar unknown; (4) carry out
the plan, and (5) examine the

from each house consisted of one
