More than 230 Radcliffe alumnae from 30 states converged on the Radcliffe quadrangle Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week for the simultaneous meetings of the Back-to-Radcliffe Day and the Alumnae Council.

Speaking in Sanders Theater Monday night, Dr. Carl Binger, consultant in Psychiatry to the University Health Services, and Miss Katharine Taylor, formerly director of the Shady Hill School in Cambridge, agreed that an educated woman should value her intuition as highly as her reason.

Binger mentioned that he had formed a general impression of the alumnae by checking on their leisure time reading. The class of 1949, he said, read Dr. Zhivago, Everybody's Guide to the Stock Market, and How to Live in Peace with Your Nerves. Binger also said, "We have to do more for college-educated man.
