A government still dominated by tha military hopes to give this predominantly Moslem country its most peaceful and prosperous period since inde- idence was aclu'eved more than 20 years ago. Indonesia now has its first majority-elected parliament in 1G years, though it is made to [overnment order. The parliament was elected in July and its first session opened Oct. 20. A military regime headed by 3en. Suharto came to power in ndonesia in lOfifi, following the army's suppression of a Com- munist coup attempt in Septem- sr-October, 1965.

In about 20 of the cases Dr. Scott found there was no justification in tte complainant's problem. SUSPECT DOCTORING Dr. Scott gave on example of problems he gets. "Students have come to me with complaints about final examination results. Thev think t'hnre has been manipu- lation of their mrii'ks by pro- fessors.
