Women's rules have taken a
change for the better.
Women can now wear slacks :
and bermuldas on campus. The
new rule reads: "Women
students are not to wear
shorts or slacks in class, in
the library, in administrative
buildingi, or in University din
ing facilities. They are re
quested to use discretion in
dress in other areas. A penal
ty of any violation will be left
up to the discretion of the
Another major rule to be
changed is closing hours of
the dorms. The new rule
states: "All coeds, excluding
freshmen, must be in their
residences Sunday through
Thursday at 12 midnight, and
Friday and Saturday at 1 a.m.
The -old rule said: Monday
through Thursday by 11 p.m.,
Friday and Saturday by 1 a.m.
and Sunday by 12 midnight."

Editor's Note: The recent conviction of two stu

lants, and the suspension of four other students have
..again raised questions about the nature of these drugs
and their use on this campus. Last spring DTH staffer
Ernest Robl spent four weeks of intensive research on
this subject. The following is his report on an often

a tiny pink and green pill between his thumb and
"It's good for 12 hours," he said. "It belongs to
Blank, but if he says it's okay, I'll let you have it."
The second student regarded it curiously and ask
ed "Is it a prescription?"
"Oh, yes," the first student replied, "they all
But when he was asked where his friend Blank
had obtained it, he shrugged his shoulders and "said
that he did not know.
This pill, like literally thousands of others which
find their way to students at the University here eve
ry year illegally is a "de."
"Dex" is the student nickname given to ampheta
mine drugs including dexedrine and dexomil. The
drugs, normally prescribed for over-eating or exhaus
tion act as stimulants and are taken by students to
stay awake while "cramming" for exams and quizzes
or finishing last minute term papers.
Manv University administrators do not see the use
of these drugs as a "major problem," but on a na--tionwide
basis, pressure is rapidly mounting to con
trol the use of these drugs.
Simmy because these drugs are illegal without
nrescrintions, students are unwilling to talk about
theTr use making it extremely difficult to determine
how widespread their use is.
Dr E. M. Hedgepeth, director of the Student
Health Service of the University commented, "There's
probably a lot more used than anybody ever knows
90 Per Cent Use?
In fact some student estimates went as high as
saying that in their opinion, 90 per cent of the stu
dents use at least one "dex" pill every year. After
interviews with a number of students, it appears that
50 per cent is a much more realistic number.
These figures do not seem to indicate any graphic
change from those of preceding years or a deviation
from the national averages. The actual level of use
appears to have remained about constant, but recent
concern for the misuse of drugs of all kinds has fo
cused additional attention on the use of stimulants on
At the 122nd annual Meeting of the American Psy
chiatric Association in Atlantic City, N. J., May 11,
one of the major presentations was devoted to a warn
ing about the use of these drugs.
Dr. Frederick Lamere of the University of Wash
ington School of Medicine in Seattle said that it is not
generally recognized that the improper use of amphe
tamine drugs can have a "damaging effect" emotion
ally, and could even damage the brain.
Lamere told the gathering, "In this country, am
phetamine dependency has been increasing, but re
cent government controls will materially help to stop
the propagation of this serious personal and social dis
order." He urged doctors to use extreme caution in pre
scribing the drugs least they be used by the wrong
But despite the official pronouncements on the
use of these drugs, a number of questions remain
about them and their relation to college students:
What kind of students use these "dex" pills?
Where do they get them?
How do students feel about their use?
A number of students were willing to talk about
the use of dex, after being assured that their names
would not be used.
The first fact that came to light from these inter
views was that unlike the users of other drugs, which
are normally found in the beatnik elements, 1 dex

By far the most frequent source appears to be
the student with a prescription for the pihs who is
willing to either give away the piUs or to sell them
on a cost basis.
Arthur Beaumont, head of the campu police
force, said that in the past several years there have
been only two cases of students attempting to sell
these pills for a profit, other than the recent case
during the second summer session.
These students are turned over either to the stu
dent judiciary or to a pertinent administrative ag
ency for disciplinary action.
Beaumont said that almost the only way the cam
pus police force finds out about the use of such drugs
by students is when he receives a call to pick up a
student because of after-effects from taking these

Student Health Service Psychiatrist Clifford Reif
ler, to whom such cases are usually sent, admits that
there have been a number of cases of students suffer
ing from overdoses of drugs but also refuses to give
out the number of cases. -
Reifler did however note, that he thought that
dependency on stimulant drugs was a bigger problem
here than LSD and some other drugs which have re
ceived more publicity.
Reifler describes the "dex" drugs as non-habit
forming," but says that some people come to depend
on them', forming a drug "dependency."
"Dex" users acknowledge the fact that they are
taking a risk, and one student even admitted contin
uing to buy the pills on the underground campus mar
ket after his father-a doctor-cautioned him agamst
When asked about the possible effects of taking
"dex" without a doctor's prescription, Student Health
Service Director Hedgepeth commented, "Not infre
quently, the taking of stimulants will result m aggre
gation of the condition for which they were taken. The
student will only get more confused and unable to
meet demands than if he hadn't taken them."
