GLENN F. VanBLARICUM JR., works in an electrical engineering laboratory at tko University of Illinois. Student Tells Why He Chose Big University By GLENN F. Van BLARICUM JR. Sophomore Princeton, III. As graduation from Moinonce, 111.. High School in the spring of IfMil drew near, I was faced with the same important decision w h i c li graduates everywhere face if they intend to further their education after high school. Planning to major in electrical engineering, F naturally looked for an institution which has a good engineering college, and the University of Illinois, I decided, has one of I.IIR best. I fell that since the- College; of Engineering at Illinois is large, it would be able to provide more adequate facilities for classroom and laboratory use. Furthermore, because of the Another Tells Why He Chose Small, Liberal Arts College By DAVID DRABBIN SENIOR LOS ANGELES Of the many factors determining ono's choice of a college, I would single out three • or four which most influenced me to dc- (ide on Pomona. There was no doubt that I could gel a good liberal arts education at Pomona, which has a high scholastic rating. I had not decided on a career and therefore wanted a general education rather than a highly specialized one. Pomona has an impressive faculty-student ratio, about one to 10. Moreover, since only tile I?. A. degree is offered, the faculty is composed of men who want to teach undergrad- graduates. These considerations seemed to indicate lhat professors would have both the time and interest to give personal attention to each student ] The *iie of P»m«n«'« student I body was another factor in! fluencinjj my choice. I feared that ;at a large university one could ieasily feel like little more than | a serial number. At a small col- jlege (Pomona has only 1,100 stu- !dents), there would be a por- jportionately greater number of • opportunities to participate In | college activities, such as student government or athletics. ! Since Pomona is both coeducational and residential, the possibilities for contact with other students would be nearly unlimited, and social relations could develop more easily and more informally than If one were at an all-male institution. Location wa s another consideration. Pomona is located in the rather sleepy town of Claremont, in Southern California. Yet the fact that Los Angeles is less than an hour away meant that there would be no great lack of cultural activities. A n e t h • r factor which influenced my coming to Pomona was the impression I formed after visiting the college. I came without an appointment and found all the offices closed for the day_ However, while I was walking' around the campus, a student came up to me, said that I looked somewhat lost, and offered to show me around. The fact that this stranger spontaneously took three or four hours from his day to take me around the campus impressed me greatly. It seemed that Pomona students were indeed friendlier than students at o.lher colleges I visited. —Whether buying or selling, use Telegram Want Adsl DAVID DRABKIN, a senior international relations major at Pomona College, discvusies plans to attend the University of Sussex with one of his favorite professors, Dr. John A.

Poa« 4A Garden City Wednesday, August 14. ^ Husband or Wife Can Control Purse PRETORIA.South Africa (A? — A South African university professor says there can be n« firm rule about whether 1ms. band or wife should control th» domestic purse. Prof. I. van Rooyen, head of the department of social work at the University of South Arica, told a finance forum for women here: "The crux of the matter is trust. Each couple must work out a system of their own and keep to it." The professor said in America one in five couples never come to an agreement about money — even after they have been married 20 years. He advised young couples: "A budget can bring joy to couples who know the satisfaction of planning and waiting for things they want."

Main Garden City, Kansas baso research facilities available, including such things as the world's largest radio telescope, the University is able to attract a large, wcll-equalificd faculty, many of whom are world authorities in their fields. I was also attracted to the! University of Illinois because of its Edmund .1. James Scholars Program, a campus-wide honors program which recognizes scholastic achievement and ability. This program offers special sections of most courses which proceed at an accelerated rate and allow the instructor and student to work together more closely. AS I had hoped, this program has proved to be both extremely interesting and beneficial. In addition to the James Scholar program, the College ofj Engineering maintains its own | honors program, which offers engineering students special advisers and special courses in most departments. Honor students also have special privileges, such as early registration. Also, because education consists of far more than just class room instruction, 1 felt that the diversity of interests represented in a university the size of Illinois would make it an Interesting and valuable place to attend. Students come from every state and 80 foreign countries to study in more than one hundred major fields. Activities of j all kinds, from athletics to art exhibits, student government to hobby clubs, are available to all students. And the University Library, with close to four million items, is largest of all state university libraries. These are some of the outstanding reasons that led to my selection of the University of Illinois, together with the obvious advantage of its being my state university. headquarters jor supplies We Have A COMPLETE LINE OF SCHOOL AND OFFICE SUPPLIES ZIPPER NOTEBOOKS Ail Sizes! and in every PRICE RANGE!
