With fry (Pamela Surift How widespread is cheating among college students? A telephone poll of 356 students taken by the Lehigh University student newspaper reveals that 47% cheat on exams, at least sometimes. Among those who admitted cheating, 67% said they looked at another student's paper, 26% conversed with a fellow student during a test, 28% used notes, and 10% used other means. Although the percentages in the poll total more than 100% because students used more than one method of cheating, the results indicate, that academic pressures are forcing many students to follow the low road to a college degree. Elvis Presley is enjoying a spectacular revival in Germany. Several years ago he was considered passed but today the 41-year-old fat boy is more widely acclaimed than ever. Presley's records began to sell towards the end of 1975 and will probably selk2.5 million copies this year. He is second in popularity to James Last, the German bandleader. A few weeks ago North German, Bavarian, and Swiss radio all featured a 10-part series on the Elvis Presley phenomenon. It was so enthusiastically received, there is talk of repeating it. Elvis has become hot again in Deutschland. FUmSemimr The University of Pennsylvania is offering a dream seminar for student* interested in film.
