By CYNTHIA COWELL The first few weeks of any studentVcollege life are likely to be rather hectic. Dozens of meetings and hundreds of new faces, together with getting started in classes and .learning to adjust to a roommate, add to the confusion and bewilderment of the new student. One problem faced by the college is to eliminate as much of this bewilderment as possible. t Knox College has adopted a "system that greatly decreases the new student's confusion not only during) • the first few weeks of college lifej clal and acad emic aspects of life but throughout his entire first two years at Knox. Before each new student enters the college, he is well known to at least two people on the campus:' his academic counselor and his student counselor. These two have met prior to orientation with Dean W. Lyle Willhite, dean of Students, and John L. Johnson, chairman of the orientation period, to discuss the orientation program, the work to be done at the various meetings with students, cooperation with the General Education Council and the General Education requirements, the ROTC program and Selective Service developments. Met by Counselor When the incoming student arrives at the opening convocation 1 for new students, he is met by his academic counselor, with whom he discusses the general program and academic standards at Knox. * Throughout the first tyeeks of the academic year, new students hold periodic meetings with their student counselors. At these meetings student counselors talk with their groups about such things as the layout of the campus, extracurricular activities,, the student time to time to discuss any personal problems the freshman may have. Arrange Study Course Each new student meets with his academic counselor to arrange his course of study for each quarter and from time to time to discuss the student's academic and personal progress. Parents of new students are invited to hold conferences with academic counselors during the Dads' Day weekend in the d all. If in the course of his conference with freshmen the academic counselor discovers that the student has reading difficulties, he may refer the student to the College Examiner, Dr. Robert S. Downs.

Fach While late fall and early winter days offer many opportunities for fine color pictures, the days grow shorter, the weather is often sullen, and the hours during which color film can be successfully exposed are limited. At the same time* the evenings grow longer, providing an opportunity for interesting indoor color work. I can hear your dismal wail already . . . "How can I shoot both indoor and outdoor color on the same film?" Well, it's easy. Just buy indoor or artificial light color film, then use a compensating filter when making outdoor shots on this film. Indoor color film exposed outdoors with the proper filter will give you results equal to outdoor color film used without the filter. Stick to the same type of color film so you'll need to buy only one "Daylight" type filter. If you use Kodachrome artificial light color film, you'll need a Daylight Type A filter. With this film, you can use the same exposure indoors or outdoors with the filter. Other films require different filters and some need slight exposure changes, usually a half-stop more exposure. These filters don't cost muchi and they make it possible for you to use the same film for indoor and outdoor color work this season. Drop in, and we'll be glad to show them to you, tell ypu how they work, and explain how to take correct exposures. Get your supply of KODACHROME film from the ILLINOIS CAMERA SHOP* 84 South Prairie Street f phone 7131-6.

Book on Pioneer* t Reviewed for Club By Miss Witmot Concerned, with the achievements of Oregon pioneer Marcus Whitman, tyit approached from the point of view of his* wife, Narcissa, who accompanied her medical missionary, husband into territory where no other white.woman had yet ventured, the book "To Heaven on Horseback," makes interesting reading, Meletonien Study Club members were told last evening. Miss L6uise WHmot reviewed Paul Cranst&n's book at the Me- letomen meeting in the home of Miss Jane Waggoner, 160 Olive St. With considerable difficulty, the young* couple, Marcus and Narcissa, crossed the, Continental Divide in the company of Indians and trappers, said Miss Wilmot. They took with them a wagon which they later left at Rendezvous, a symbol to future settlers that the trail to Oregon was now open to all with the courage to attempt the trip. The book tells of their life in Indian country, among tribes openly hostile to' them, and the courage they were possessed of to face the dangers and heartbreaks. They had said, at the time of one of the long separations caused by Marcus' work, "It is God's secret what He will do with our lives . , . and only He knows what part we will play in the history of this country." Both were the victims of an Indian massacre, but history knows of Narcissa Whitman as the "first lady of the West," who planted the seeds of a new settlement in Oregon. During the meeting, other members contributed brief resumes of their current reading and travel experiences. Fall decoration^ highlighted the serving of refreshments by the hostess, assisted by Miss Lola McMaster. The next meeting will be held Nov. 16.

L. Peterson presided at the luncheon table. The next meeting, Nov, 20, will H>e in the home of Mrs. Russell Miller, 1218 N. Academy St., with Mrs. Marion Riley and Mrs. O. E. Morris assisting.
