FACULTY ADOPTS NEW SCHEDULE
With the coming of the fall term came a new schedule of classes for Peru students. Last spring a faculty committee devised plans for changing the existing hours of class lectures, convocations, and float periods. Heretofore the classes which met in the morning started at fifty minutes after the hour, and convocation was held three times a week.
The purpose of the new schedule was to make convocation programs longer and hence better, and to improve the use of the float periods. This was accomplished by reducing the number of convocations per week to two, and by placing float periods during hours of the day when the music organizations could better utilize the time.
Headlining the social activities of the faculty have been their informal parties. It was in these exclusive parties that our instructors found opportunity to express themselves on something other than pure subject matter. On several occasions old-fashioned square dances and the "Big Apple" held their attention for many hours.
Several members of the faculty have distinguished themselves by their writings and research. Dr. G. Robert Coatney, who has been doing considerable research with malaria, was appointed to a consultant's position with the U. S. Public Health Service. Dr. P. A. Maxv ell published material concerning his research on the "problact-solving procedure."
Additions to the faculty were Florence Martin and Robert Moore, both of the English staff, and Winston B. Thorson, v ho took the place of Frank H. Heck of the history staff. Mr. Heck is completing his research at the University of Minnesota.
The professors chat while waiting for a faculty meeting to come to order.
