The Peace Corps is at
tempting to learn more about
its effective volunteers and
how to find. them.
"It's frustrating to know
that a given project has been
a smashing success and yet
not know why, or how, it can
be duplicated elsewhere," Dr.
Joseph G. Colmen, head of
Peace Corps Research, said
in an interview with CPS.
"Yet how can we tell in
advance who will be an in
spired volunteer and how a
project can be made success
ful?" Colmen and his staff have
launched a four-part research
program to provide ansvers
to these questions, and are
building it around extensive
interviews and "de-briefings"
with returning volunteers.
The first area of research,
according to Colmen, is an at
tempt to identify and measure
the success of overseas vol
unteers. "To a very real extent, we
are not sure what makes suc
cess in an overseas program,:
Dr. Gilman said. "For exam
ple, a specific building project
may be destroyed by floods
yet the volunteers involved
may have left behind an ex

A second aera of research
deals with changes and adjust

the Peace' Corps volunteers
themselves as they serve
"In this connection, we've
asked returning volunteers if
they experienced 'low points'
during their tours of duty,"
he said. About 95 per cent ad
mitted to having one or more
serious problems which they
had to cope with as part of
their project. And, we find,
almost all of them succeeded.
"We found that perhaps the
most valuable part of the
Peace Corps experience for
most of these volunteers was
the ability to be on their own,
responsible for discharging a
high level of responsibility on
their own initiative."
A third area of research, he
said, centers around the ef
fect of a Peace Corps project
in a given country.
"We want to study how the
school system in a given coun

when a third to a half of its

factors, including different at

Twin Towers and Burr Hall
are housing both men and

Dance Group
To Organize
Fall Session
Plans are being completed
for the 1963 fall session of the
Junior University Dance Or
ganization (JUDO) for faculty
and staff members of the Uni
versity. JUDO is a non-profit organ
ization sponsored by the Uni
versity's Faculty Dance Club
and is intended as an oppor
tunity for University-connected
teenagers to learn and
practice ballroom dancing; and
to meet other University-connected
teenagers from all dif
ferent schools.
Last spring 54 youngsters
from nine different junior high
schools participated on an ex
perimental basis. This year
JUDO is enlarging and any
University-connected teen in
either junior or senior high
school is eligible.
There will be a series of les
sons for at least two 'different
age groups: junior high and
senior high teens. Each group
will meet on alternate Friday
evenings in the Student Union.

dancing school, will be the

years. This gives the Univer

Lundy commented that the
new appropriation "is better
than we've been doing, but
not enough for a University

plained that the new fields of
knowledge opened since
World War II have provided
an unlimited number of top

that books and periodicals

Robert Grimit, Housing As

Some of the rooms are
