Gammon after a check of about one-half of tho questionnaire* filled out by tho class members. Dr. Elsenhower and James O’Brien are running a close race for the next most enjoyed, but there has been no indication nn to who Avill Avin last place. An overwhelming approval of the Great Issues course is also in dicated, ns well as the desirability of having the course offered again. Nearly tvt/ry questionnaire exam ined indicated that tea speakers were not too many In number for the program and that the topics discussed have led to considerable out of class discussion. One of the most interesting re actions, according to Dr. Gammon, was the question "Do you think the course of study in each of the several schools should be revised so that Great Issues would be re quired of all seniors here (as is the case at Dartmouth) with ho increase in present total of hours necessary for' graduation?” On this, the vote was two to one in fa\'or of such a change. The vote on Whether tho course should be changed from a two-hour to a three hour course was about two to one against the change. Summer Forest Tour Outlined Everett F.
