Trained faculty presents facts Of Sciences, and the methods The Science Division has been closely studied in the past two years and streamlined to meet the demands of our modern age of atomic power, miracle drugs, satellites, space explorations, and an end'ess number of other scientific discoveries. The challenge to the young mind is almost beyond imagination, but little can be achieved without the proper studying and training of fundamentals. Division II is organized and supplied with trained faculty members to present the student with the facts of the sciences. Materials, scientific equipment, and laboratories are quite adequate and better than they have been in the history of the college. In addition, the Division presents the student with the methods of the sciences based upon reason and logic, and attempts to develop in the mind of the student a critical scientific attitude toward the problems of modern life and our complicated civilization- Basic training in the sciences is available for the student who wishes to specialize in this area and make this his life occupation. Various courses are correlated to provide an adequate cultural background in the scientific world to the student who does not wish to specialize in the sciences. The sciences at Upper Iowa include mathematics, chemistry, physics, botany, and zoology. The chief objective in mathematics is to train the student in the art of clear, logical thnik- ing and to develop his powers of analysis. This is fundamental to all the sciences, and is therefore highly recommended especially for chemistry and physics. Courses in mathematics are also designed for the liberal arts student as well as the student desiring background for technical studies. Consult with the mathematics department if you are uncertain in this area. The courses offered in chemistry ase also designed to meet the needs cf both those who wish to learn the subject as part of a liberal education, and those who yUsh to specialize in the field. Upper Iowa is very proud of both the personnel and the materials and equipment in the chemistry department. Those "who obtain majors here are pre- 16 College Edition Wednesday.

Man and the Biological World is strictly an elementary course in biology especially for students who never intend to take more work in this field. It does not apply on a major or a minor. If your interest is in biology, take either the first course in botany or zoclogy. Advanced courses are given to prepare students for professional fields of forestry, ecology, dentistry, histology, nursing, genetics, and the large field of conservation. All classes in mathematics and physics will meet in Galgrove Walker. Botany, zoology, and chemistry will be found in the science building.

The physics department is located on the second floor of Colgrove Walker with new equipment of the most recent design. The program is designed for students preparing for professional careers or as high school physics teachers. All the physics courses are offered for pre-training in engineering, medicine, dentistry, and optometry. A minor in physics is particularly suitable for students majoring in chemistry or mathematics.

Bill was picked by the student publications advisor to hold this position. His plans for the future are not definite, however, Bill would like a career in either law or journalism. For this reason he has not definitely declared a major, but it will be either English or political science. Bill was busy on campus last year, being vice president of Social and Political Issues club and a member of Sigma Tau Delta, the national English fraternity.
