Baok in the middle of last week,
most of the freshmen got their
first bitter taste of that old N.U.
tradition, down slips.
Few escaped, for, according to
Assistant Dean L. F. Fowles, ap
proximately two thirds of the Jun
ior Division stjdents got downs.
A survey of some of the fresh
men showed that most think the
down slip system is a good one,
but only, of coure, when some
one else gets the down. Opinions
ranged from firm resentment to
"it served me right." 'As one stu
dent said, "I like the system, but
then, on the other hand, I don't
One disgruntled 'freshman put
his argument this way: "It (the
down) builds a little fire under
your folks. It builds a little fire
under you. If you're in a frater
nity or sorority, it builds a little
fire under the active chapter.
Pretty soon you've got a great
Along the same line of thinking
was the comment: "My down got
me all rattled, and the fraternity
got road and campused mt."
One freshman, the not so proud
possessor of six hours of downs
added that the "system is a good
deal. It tells a fellow that it's
time to get in there and start
Other comments, favorable to
the down slip system, were:
"It tells a fellow what's coming
off. "It let me know that it's not
duck soup here at the U, and
downs let you know what to get
to work in."
A few expressed the opinion that
downs are unnecessary. They said
that they knew what subjects they
were down in.
Apparently the worst is yet to
come (heaven help us), for, ac
cording t Assistant Dean Fowles,
the number of downs given at
mid-term will be an increase of
approximately 400 over the num
ber given in the first scholastic
Mid-term, accompanied by the
usual quota of weepingf wailing,
and gnashing of teeth, will be the
fun and work that it always has
been .And yet there will be a no
ticeable air of expectation on
campus as students wait for the
coming of vacation and for the
coming of the inevitable downs.

Dr. Baker returned here this
summer after 2 years in Turkey.
He spent most of his time formu
