of the graduate college Under New System Former President Jessup told the audience that under a new educa tional system which is being scrut inized less emphasis will be placed on size of class number of regis trations volumes in the library and credits in the registrars office More attention will be given to find ingout what happens to the student while on the campus Official recognition will be

or failure of education Singleness of Purpose Regarding the university the for mer president asserted loyalties of this institution are not based on fickle likes or dislikes The tradi tional Iowa loyalty comes from a singleness of purpose high idealism and faith in value of education In his inaugural address Presi dent Gilmore cited the greatest problem of a university as determ ing of what

that some would make similar applications to our intellec tual life President Gilmore said Train for Leadership while the university must function with due regard to prevail ing social philosophy and should train leadership it cannot assume direct responsibility for so cial reform without endangering its larger usefulness of dispassionate and detached investigation and re search It is dedicated to

number of complaints because it has discontinued its moving ball service on the Playograph in recording the world series games The advent of auto radios has brought radio reception into the midst of the crowds watching the series returns and the radio is of course about a minute in ad vance of the plays as transcribed on the board For this reason the GlobeGazette discontinued the moving ball service installed loud speakers and used the play ograph only as an uptothe minute bulletin board If you wish the moving ball service re instated in spite of the condi tions above indicated please
