neutral  Ian M-H: Possible, but I'd be cautious (as Edith is). Institute für Soziologie had indeed been established by 1928, but I don't imagine there were many Diplom-Soziologen. Not from Berlin before 1956: http://www.berlingeschichte.de/Kalender/Tag/Jul19.htm

Direktstudent


Explanation:
also just a guess - but if Ing-Asp is an Aspirant then *perhaps* DS could be a Direktstudent, if the writer didn't know Arthur's intended Abschluss?

doktorand soziologie


Explanation:
i found one site that said aspirant = doktorand, the year was 1938, so this might fit with sociology etc.

neutral  Ian M-H: Hmm, possible. Perhaps Christine can tell us why she's asking under social science etc? She may have more clues.
