NEW COLLEGE Page 2 STUDENT DIALOGS END Final meetings of the aeries of Dialogs, the special student-led seminars for the local community, were held Monday evening in Hamilton Center and once again the sessions were rated as highly successful. For the second of the aeries of sessions which were inaugurated in February by the Student Public Relations Committee under the direction of graduating student Jerry NeugaT.ten, a number of area high school students were given "scholarships" to make it possible for them to attend the aessiona in mathematics, psychology, poetry and literature. Student Don Heth, who was the leader of the psychology aeries, said his groups asked to continue the sessions next fall when the college year opens. Graduating student Allan Jaworski, who led the mathematics seminar, said his group managed to cover a substantial amount of material and that interest remained high during the entire period.
