Th college would celebrate it golden anniversary when th state college system com memorates its centennial in 1966, he said.

Laramy, 24, Chippewa Falls, forfeited $12 for three delinuqent city parking tickets, , seen necessary to reassess o change, Dr. Haas said. THE PATTERN OF genera and liberal arts education which is basic in teacher edu cation in the state colleges has become a sound founda tion for education generally Dr. Haas noted. One half o the Eau Claire attorneys many doctors and dentists and scores of employes of the city's largest industry re ceived education of the col lege, he said. In the course of the years since the founding of the col lege in 1916, there has been an upgrading of the college program and the programs o the schools in the area which has contributed to the econom ic and social welfare of the community, he declared. Many studies indicate, Dr Haas said, that the program of the type offered at Eau Claire has contributed sub stantially to the prosperity o: the community and tha prosperity increases as standards of education are increased. During the years the col lege has seen fit to broaden and extend its program, Dr Haas said. In 1951 the libera arts degree was authorizec by the state college board o: regents. This year 83 seniors expect to complete the libera arts degree. The college is well situatec geographically to service o: an area of at least 60 miles radius in special services such as the business educa tion major recently established, Dr. Haas stated. THE WORK OF the college continues in an ever widening circle to meet the needs which the community and the state has indicated as desirable the speaker said. The basic program of liber al arts gives breadth a n c depth to each graduate, fitting him to enter upon the specia' training and services which business and industry require of their new employes, Dr Haas said. The second part of the luncheon program included a mock interview between a representative of business- industry — Robert Lundgren, plant works-engineer of the U.S. Rubber Co. and a college senior, Terry Schwantes, Neillsville, a math major, as applicant of employment. Dr. Fred Armstrong, chair man of the college economics department, presided at the luncheon and introduced the speakers. Nine sectional meetings in the morning and repeated in the afternoon covering many areas of business and industry [urnished the work sessions of the conference. Representa tives of business and Industry served as consultants; mem bers ef the college faculty as chairmen of the sections. Dr. Lester Emans, director of placement, directed the conference. >osh Near Madison Fatat to Two Drivers (By ASSOCIATED PRESS) The deaths ol two elderly men in a Dane County highway crash has raised Wisconsin's 1961 traffic toll to 11, compared with 12 on this date a year ago.

It apparently reached no decision. The SEATO council of representatives met. on the Laos question for the third time this week, with the United States coming under increasing pressure to accept a political solution to the crisis. The U.S. has favored a strong SEATO stand in defense of the Laotian government against Communist aggression. AFTER AN hour -long meeting, the council adjourned until next Tuesday, apparently without reaching agreement on what role SEATO should take. Alliance Secretary General Pote Sarasin of Thailand said "there have been no developments warranting a statement." Several of the eight pact members questioned U.S. reports that Soviet transport planes had air-dropped Communist North Vietnamese paratroopers to aid the Communist Pathet Lao troops and forces of leftist Capt. Kong Le. The pro - Western Laotian government reported Thursday it had defeated Communist forces around X i e n g Khouang and that S o v let transport planes were evacu- at i n g North Vietnamese troops from airfields near the city.

Jailed Belgian Strikers New Riot 'Reason' BRUSSELS (UPI) — Authorities today ordered strong security precautions to block any attempt by demonstrators to storm the suburban forest prison where 30 fellow - strikers are being held. Brussels police were placed on a s p e c i a 1 alert for a planned mass march on the prison and sympathy demonstration by leftists trying to topple the government. There was a comparative lull Thursday in the violence which has marked the 19 -day Socialist-headed protest strikes against the govern ment's new austerity pro gram. While authorities acted to avert new bloodshed and strife, a s e r i o u s split ap peared developing in the So cialist party. THE SCHISM apparently was delaying the party's decision on whether to call a nationwide general strike. Speculation was growing that a general election might be called soon to pull the nation out of the crisis. King Baudouin was report ed resolutely pushing ahead efforts to find a compromise solution by urging leaders of the three major political factions — Socialist, Liberal and Christian Social — to agree to formation of a "national un ion" cabinet. The Brussels bureau of the Socialist labor unions said the leadership would not back down on its plan to keep the strike going until it toppled the Liberal - Catholic coalition government of Premier Gaston Eyskens.
