They were two of four New College students who attended the association necting at the University of Florida together with Professor of Philosophy Douglas C. Berggren and Dr. B. Gresham Riley, assistant professor of Philosophy. The t\vo other students were Timothy Duns\vorth of St. Louis Park, Minn., and Jeanne Rosenberg, of Peoria, Ill.
