What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

W estern students have some thing n e w to think about these . days.The question isn’t w h a t to study first or w h a t to have fo r dinner. On the contrary the ques tion is w h e ther or not w e want to have Friday’s cut from our school curriculum or i f w e want it to remain the same. I f schooling on Fridays ceased to exist at W estern the w e e k s schedule w o u ld go som ething like this. Monday through Thursday students w o u ld attend classes fo r one hour and fifteen minutes much like the Tuesday Thursday classes are set up now. A fter mush interview ing I was shocked at the response that I was g iven b y the students here on the W estern campus. Alia W a lton-“I think that it w o u ld be nice to have a three day w e e k e n d but there is a definite downside to having Fridays o f f as w e ll. W e are g o in g to college to prepare ourselves fo r a five day w o r k w e e k so having Fridays o f f w ill make the adjustment all that much m o re difficult fo r us.” D rew Xanthopoulos- “I like the w a y the classes are being run right now. I don’t feel that w e need an extra day o f f because it w o u ld mess up everyone’s sched ules and just confuse things.” Jeremy Hoscheid- “N o way. I am against the change because I don’t want to sit in class e v e ry day o f the w e e k fo r over an hour. I feel that it w o u ld mess up m y Monday and Wednesday classes.” Patrick Callaway-“! am defi nitely against the change fo r the reason that I don’t think that it w ill w o r k out right. A ll o f our classes w o u ld be far too com pressed and there are too many night classes as it is w e don’t need any more.” N ick May- “ I am indifferent. I w o u ldn’t mind having Friday’s o f f but I definitely don’t want my classes to get any longer. It seems to m e that the change w o u ld cause less class tim e w ith the same amount o f credits so it is kind o f less fo r the students.” Dr. Mark A d d erley- “Universally it is not a g o o d idea. For those students w h o are in sports I feel that they should have the option to take classes from Monday through Thursday w ith no Friday classes, but the Friday class days option should still be open t o all students.” Casey V osen-“I definitely think that Fridays should be cut. It w o u ld make the w e e k e n d long enough to get som ething done for a change.” Dr. Jane Maddock-“I have no objection to it at all. I feel that it w o u ld be a v e r y good idea but I feel that perhaps this w a y the students c o u ld e n joy m ore w e e k end fields experiences such as trips to Y e llow s tone etc.” K e ri Dahle- “I w o u ld love to have Fridays o f f because there is just not enough tim e fo r my extra curricular a ctivities as it is like play practice and the demands o f putting together a g o o d perfor mance. I could use the extra time.” Stephanie Shepherdson-“It _ w o u ld w o rk but I highly doubt that all o f the faculty w o u ld go for it. I know som e teachers that really love Fridays and I think they w o u ld resist having Fridays off.”
