Warren Study Indicates
Students in Teaching
Are Less Socially Mature
Students in Teachers College are "more
authoritarian, less aesthetic, less socially ma
ture and less oriented in theoretical ap
proaches to problems than students in other
colleges on campus."
In a unique study of 438 freshman stu
dents, Dr. Jonathan Warren of the University
counseling service reported, however, that
most students taking a non-professional
course in arts and sciences are completely
comparable to students at the University of
California at Berkeley,
The study also shows that
"the farm boy's feeling that
he is more socially introvert
ed than others does not hold
up," said Warren.
"Also, the engineering stu
dent who originates from a
farm background generally
has a higher academic apti
tude than the engineering stu
dent not from the farm," he
"However, students in agri-
more" conservative than stu
dents in a test group of se
lective liberal arts colleges
in America," said Warren.
Social Maturity
"There is a great differ
ence in social maturity be
tween students at the Uni
versity and other schools in
the U.S., and even between
students in different colleges
at the University," said War
ren. Social maturity is defined
as the ability of an individual
to think for 'himself, to rely
less on the standard routine
in facing a given situation,
and to be more tolerant Jto
ward others.
"Sixteen per cent of the
students tested are as social
ly mature as other high-scoring
college and university stu
dents across the United
States," said Warren.
"University students as a
whole, however, are less so
cially mature less liberal po
litically, and less able to ap
proach problems in a theoreti
cal way than students at three
moderately good and three
highly selective liberal arts
colleges where the same test
has been given," Warren
Significant Differences
Warren emphasized the sig
nificant differences among
students at the University in
scoring in the various person
ality catagories.
"For example, students who
rate highest in social maturi
ty come from the arts and
sciences college (non-professional
course) and from engi
neering college (non-farm
"Students who rate lowest
in social maturity, however,"
said Warren, "are found in
the business administration,
agriculture, and teachers col
leges." Usually students who scored
highest in the tests, came
"from families where greater
importance is placed on intel
lectual activity and where
more books are found in the
home," added Warren.
Theoretical Approaches
Students who rated highest
in theoretical approaches to a
problem came from arts and
sciences (non-professional
course) and engineering
(non-farm background).
Students in agriculture, bus
iness administration and
teachers colleges rated low
est as a group in theoretical
orientation to problems.
"A tendency toward athe
ism was most pronounced in
arts and sciences (non
professional course) and en
gineering (non-farm back
ground) and lowest among
teachers," said Warren.
"The most original groups
were from arts and sciences
( non - professional courses )
and engineering (non-farm
background)," pointed out
Warren, who added that, the
test for originality was not
very sound.
"The least original were
found in agricultural college,
as were the most conserva
tive (politically) students."
"Students most pronounced
in non-authoritian character
istics are in arts and sci
ences (non-p rofesjiional
course) and engineering (non-
farm background).
Most Authoritarian
"Although the differences
are small, students with the
most authoritarian, least tol
erant personalities are found
in agriculture and teachers."

Gage Emphasizes Need
For SCBC Follow-Up
Student Council president
Steve Gage emphasized the
need for a follow-up plan of
action by independent mem
bers of the Student Council
Betterment Committee.
In a speech to some 20
members of the University
Independent Cornhmsk
ers (UNICORNS), Gage
rapped the Residence Asso
ciation for Men (RAM) and
and Independent Women's As
sociation (IWA) for failure
to encourage their own pro
moted program the Stu
dent Council Associates Pro
gram. SCBC is responsible for the
Council Associates program,
of which Don Witt was placed
in charge "Of 150 parti
cipants in the Associates pro
gram, only two or three are
independents," said Gage.
He explained that there are
three types of Student Coun
cil representatives, but only
two of them are recognized
as such. Panhellenic Council,
RAM, Interfraternity Council
(IFC), and IWA "represent
living units but are not so
The SCBC campaign for
the coming election, noted
Gage, should not be just a
"springtime affair like last
year," but should be followed
up "last year, the big push
ended with the election."
He added that there was
some good done last year
through SCBC since IFC has

Workers have begun excavating land in

the existing Womens Residence Halls.
This (Area I) lot has to be torn out to make
room for the $4 million project. People

Dodson Fights for Amendments
"Revolution," in the Resi
dence Association for Men
(RAM) Council, was a term
used more than once at Mon
day night's meeting.
It was President Roger Dod
son who, after passing the
gavel to Vice-President Dave
Scholz, fought for the amend
ments to the constitution and
"With the promoting of or
ganization, I think the time
will come when we are num
ber one on the University
campus," Dodson said in
leading off the discussion on
his tabled motion to strike
the pay of the president and
publicity director.
An 11-6 vote by the council
passed Dodson's motion that
the $280 ($180 for the presi
dent and $100 for the publi
city director) be put into a
floating fund to be used by
the executive committee un
der the supervision of the
president for the benefit of
Dodson Debates
Dodson used most of the
ten minutes alloted for de
bat; on the motion in point
ing out: TD the money should
not be used as an incentive
for prospective presidents;
(2) the executive does not do
enough to deserve the pay
and does not necessarily use
the money for the benefit of
RAM; and (3) there are
many instances in which the
President can use money for
such things as public rela
tions and secretarial work.
Dodson followed up with a
motion that the publicity di
rector be given a voting posi-r
tion in the RAM council:
"The time has come, if we
ars revolutioni.'.ing, to set a
new goal for the publicity di
rector - . "
Fifteen minutes were al
loted debate on this amend
ment fay way of a motion by
Secretary Nell Bateman. And
the present Publicity Direc
tor Byron Falleson used a
telephone book for a small
filibuster in order to run out
the clock.
The amendment passed,
Lack of Leadership
A house organization report
by Committee Head Ben Was-1
singer pointed that there ex-1
ists a definite :ack of posi-j
tive leadership in the indi-l
vidual houses. The report was
based upon the results of

with the organizational committee.

A good slate, Gage contin

making the selections "they
must be well informed."
There will be both Greeks

Last year, he commented,
independent groups tended to
pick candidates whose inter

"Prepare a positive plat
form that you can stand on,"
urged Gage.
In the future, he continued,
commuters will become more

become a very vocal group

have good leadership.
"They may in the next
few years represent the ma
jority of the student body, and
have some of the best peo

as examples members of Phi

top averages.
