First Year Dilemma
Scarcely two months after Registration, every entering student is thrust into the ordeal of his first Ames argument. Suddenly he must play the role of a lawyer with an appellate case to handle. Faced with a record from a trial court, he must write a brief and compose the oral argument he will soon present. For many a first year student, even with a member of the Board of Student Advisers to coach and advise him, the experience resembles seeing a lake for the first time and, after a few hints on technique, being thrown in and told to swim.
