THE TAMPA TIMES, Monday, March 28, 1966 End Political Meddling? The official action resulting in the change to the quarter system for state universities, b e s i d e s drawing fire from those who have grown to like the trimester sys tem and re-opening wounds in flicted by serving the semester system several years ago, has em phasized a major problem existing in t h e state's education policy making hierarchy. Most people will agree t h a t year-round operation of the state universities is the only feasible way to help eliminate the immediate pressure of too many people for too few schools. Whether to use the quarter or trimester system is a separate question, decided re cently by ... ? And isn't that the question: Who did decide to institute the quarter plan trying out the only other year-round plan feasible? Was it the Board of Regents; the Cabinet Board of Education; Governor Burns? The first person to advocate a change was Go'l(ernor Burns dur ing his 1964 campaign. He prom ised to get rid of the trimester. The decision to adopt the quarter system originated several weeks ago with the Regents, as it should. Pressure on that body to draft the measure undoubtedly c a m e from Governor Burns . It should be remembered that this Board of Regents was named by Burns to replace earlier appointees of the Bryant administration. The Board of Education, com posed of five elected state officials, was next required to (ipprove the proposal, thus giving an official OK to the Regents' plan. Only Sec retary of State Tom Adams voted a g a i n s t the proposed change, charging that the Board of Edu cation had not been provided with data to substantiate the recom mendation. The other members, the governor, the treasurer, the superintendent of schools and the attorney general, approved t h e measure, following the tradition al Board line of accepting almost unanimously the wishes of t h e Governor. During the same meeting, At torney General E a r 1 Faircloth suggested that the Board of Education be abolished. Faircloth also complained that he too had not received enough "background in formation" about the proposed quarter system change and then went on to question the whole pur pose of the Board of Education. The entanglement goes on and on, with Governor Burns appear ing to pull all the strings. The basic prOblem is still to remove political pressure from education policymaking. Eliminating the Board of Education would actual ly increase the chances for politi cal meddling, since the Governor controls the Regents (the State Supreme Court approved Burns' replacing the group before their terms ran out and probably -would do so again). Once the Regents were 1 e f t without some force to keep politi cally motivated plans from sweep ing reason aside, no voice would be heard in policy discussions that was directly responsive to t h e people. A board of Regents free of po litical manipulation is an ideal worth striving after, but one that may never be realized. Voices of dissent which are responsive to the public are necessary when conse quences affect the people. One system which would pro vide an effective hierarchy to run the state education program could be based on the present Board-type plan which would include seven members, four elected ones and three appointed members . Such a Board would have one elected official, such as the super intendent of schools, for the chair man, casting o n 1 y tie breaking votes . The other elected officials would be selected by the S t a t e voters for their posts. The ap pointed group would , be chosen by the Governor and have staggered terms ranging from two to four years. This old balance of power sys tem, combining the best which the present Boards of Regents a n d Education have to offer, might be the answer to the problem of un due political interference with ed ucation policy-making and a 1 s o give the state an effective policy making body with the first a n d last say in educational matters. Machines Are Good Guys It is possible for students to at tend a university for four years and never see a professor? Will Hux ley's Brave New World reach into the university system and produce look-alike, talk-a-like students? At first glance, it appears as if it might come to that. Time maga zine recently reported an experi ment being tried at Oklahoma Christian College that has an elec tronic approach to teaching. Freshman and sophomore stu dents are assigned individual study carrels with an electronic hook-up to a master computer. The st udent sits down, dons earphones and plugs himself into the computer for the day's lessons. Two thirds of the freshmen and half the sophomores are taught in this manner . The setup is both ' elaborate and expensive -to the tune of $1 million. The obvious advantages of the electronic teaching include: -freeing the instructor for more tutorial time teaching more students at lower cost the student will be able to at tend "classes" at his leisure, within a set time limit. Some feel the students would be losing the "human element" in their learning. The critics also say that the machines prohibit another important facet of the universitythe opportunity for active inter change of ideas. Computer, tape fed courses al low no room for the student to argue or even ask a question. The critics fear th at the only id eas a student will have will be those spoon fed to him. And, most im portant, the student will lose his ability to deal with people or come out of the university unable to deal with people. Relax, fellas. The courses taught by machine are the basic studies courses, and students aren't presumed to have coagulated their ideas enough to argue logically. It' s background, preparation for going into studies which really interest them. And be sides, a regularly scheduled chat with the professor would give the student a chance to ask questions. Certainly, if he's any kind of a thinking person, the stuff on the teaching machines will raise ques tions which can be answered or dealt with when he sees the pro fessor. Maybe this in d i vidual ses sion with the professor will prove far superior to lecture hall learning where the basic studies student never sees the professor except from an auditorium chair, along with 300 other students . If a student grows up in con tract with other human beings, how can the "human element" ever be erased from his life? If the teach ing machines allow him to attend "class" at his leisure, this surely would allow plenty of time for social activity, chats with profes sors, and even seminar-discussion groups every once in a while. USF has its form of electronic learning in the language laboratory. The speech department will have a teaching machine in operation next fall. These machines are and will be used to supplement learning , as all phases of university life are in tended to supplement, rather than supplant, each other in the learning process .

Adviser â€¢ I LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS On Leave From Viet Nam; Grad Says VC 1Cracking1 By ANDREW PETRUSKA Campus Staff Writer Last week a man c a m e home from war. His name -Lt. Douglas C. MacCasklll, United States Marine Corps, USF Class of '64. MacCasldll is the first USF graduate to return from1 Viet Nam. killed by snipers' bullets in tended for him. MacCaskill spOke about a battle in which he had a can teen shot off his belt, a hel met blown off of his head, and bullet holes put through his The Loyal Opposition clothes -all without the loss of a single drop of blood. On Feb. 18, 1966, Lt. Mac Caskill received the Bronze Star for bravery in action. He was given leave to return home a few weeks later. Prematurely; Maybe? The Oracle SpeaksBy PETE GLADUE Campus Staff Writer could answer. "Hello, " another voice said, "Oracle here, chief speaking." I "I'd say he would make a poor college instructor, Prexy. The file on him states he doesn't plan lectures, uses unorthodox teaching methods, and is unable to communicate." The tall, sunburned Marine spolfe to three history classes here at the request of Dr. Robert Goldstein, USF chair man and professor of history. MacCaskill told of thousands Vietnamese refugees fleeing from Cong "liberators" and he assured the audience that "The vast majority of people in Viet N am are not now, never have , and never will be pro-Communist." Things have gotten a little premature at the office of the Campus Edition . Yesterday, for instance, we phoned in a story and were quite sur prised when the voice that answered the p h o n e said, "Hello, this is the Oracle. " Then the other voice, we guessed, had only been an assistant of something. At least we were talking to the head man. Number One . We didn't know how to begin , never having had to address an Ora cle before, so we decided to play it safe and call him Sir. After all , an Oracle is higher than a dean. "Oracle, Sir," we said, "How many questions can we ask. Are you like a genie, kinda stingy, where there's a limit of three?" Interpretation: At first we thought we had been the victim of Direct Dis tance Dialing, but, a few ques tions 1 a t e r, we were s e t straight. Faculty Aid Needed "THE MORALE of the VC is cracking," he said. "We are hurting them very, very badly." MacCaskill went on to say that in a battle near Plei-Mei against a r e g u 1 a r North Vietnamese regiment he and his men over ran an enemy position and found the soldiers chained to t h e I r weapons to prevent t h e I r fleeing or surrendering. " How come you don't speak Greek?" we asked. "Why should I?" the voice replied. "How can we win friends and influence people?" we demande-d of the Oracle. F R 0 M FARAWAY the voice of the Chief came across the line, "Hey Julian get on the extension. I got a hot one here." On SA\ Legislation? The war in Viet Nam is savage, but MacCaskill said that 8 to 12 Communists were being killed for every Ameri can life lost. He said finally that "The Communists cannot possibly win in Viet N am un less the American people fail to defend themselves and the other people in the world who are too weak to defend them selves." "How should I know? Now look here ... " Evidently the Oracle busi ness wasn't so hot, because it sounded like they were hard up for customers. We suspected we might have to pay. We tried to withdraw gracefully, not knowing what kind of re venge the 0 r a c 1 e might be a b 1 e to take. "We're sorry for having bothered you, Sir," we said. "We 'll call back la ter when you're not so busy." By STUART THAYER Campus Staff Writer Should the Student Associa tion use faculty support to put its legislation into effect? One complaint voiced about the effectiveness of the Student Association (SAl has been the legislation enacted has not gone to the proper channels. It has been suggest ed SA use faculty inf luence to get quick action on its pro posals. In the proposed constitution for the University Senate prepared by the American As sociation of University Profes sors ( AAUPl here, is what is termed a "Faculty-Student Council." THE COUNCIL is designed to "c o n s i d e r student gri evances, allegations of injustice brought against faculty members, recommendations from the Student As sociation concerning University policy, and any other matter of mu tual c o n c e r n t o faculty and students." Present University p o 1 i c y statements also provide for a faculty-student committee on academic affairs but it is not concet'ned with the general student legislation. Student government officials at two other colleges and USF SA Pres. John Harper agreed the students should take the responsibility of running their own government. UNIVERSITY OF Tampa Stu dent Government President Jerry Garbis said the "faculty should not be used as a crutch to get student legislation enacted." Garbis said he was en couraged to find t he academic caliber of the college student is rising. This, he said, is re sponsible for the increased acOur Readers Write tivities of s t u d e n t govern ments. The Tampa University stu dent government prestige be gan to rise, Garbis . said, "when the students began to follow through on their responsibll ities." The faculty evaluation program initiated there, he said, "would not have been considered to the extent it is now," four years ago . "As the caliber of students comes up academically, student government competency will rise." BILL N E R 0 N, vice presi dent of the student govern ment at St. Petersburg Junior College , said he didn't think a student government needed faculty support. "We don't have that many problems," he said. "Maybe V's the lack of issues," a common complaint at USF. Neron saw administration student government relations as a "gray area between ad ministration supervision and student control of their own activities." The struggle, he said, was "to get as much of this gray area as possible." Asked whether a faculty-student committee woule aid ,he students, Neron said, pt could, but it 1 would depend on the individual case. It would have to effect the faculty as much as the students." SA PRESIDENT John Harp.. er agreed. He said the only concern the faculty would have with SA would be academic affairs , and he called the cur rent faculty-student arrange ment adequate. Concerning "non-academic" student af fairs, Harper said, "We have the highest caliber of students here, but until other students are willing to work to initiate ch ange, change will come hard." L A T E R in an interview, MacCaskill talked about hirb self and his personal involve ment in the war. The facts carne out slowly about 106 combat patrols be led during his 14-month stay in VietNam. As a platoon leader in the 3rd Marine Recon Battalion, MacCaskill was always ac companied by a radio opera tor. On two different occas sions radio operators were BUT IT WAS too late. There were so many questions we had to ask. "What will the CB English exams be like?" We had a vision of miles of freshman girls offering us their all for the answer . If one owns, or at least has ac cess to an oracle, the world, we saw, was a plaything. "Just a minute ... " the v o i c e kept trying to inter rupt. "What will happen in Viet Narn?" we had visions of be coming Secretary of State and spreading the truth to t h e world. Our thirst for power was insatiable. "LET ME SWITCH t h i s call," the voice said, and the 1 i n e went dead b e f o r e we We had visions of the Ora cle making us disappear at will. " Now look here ... " the chief began irately. We hung up and waited for a bolt of lightning to strike us dead. Ah well, we thought , the story wasn't important any way . (We were a little leery about trying to call again.) Just a blurb about a fraternity type who liked to suck blood. (Editor's Note): Just as the biology laboratory serves as a training ground for future biologists, the Campus Edition also serves as laboratory for student journalists. Primary purpose of the campus newspaper is to service the University community, but it also has the purpose of training students. This week's edition was coordinated and edited by History-English major Julian Efird. Next week Polly Weaver, a soc'lology major, will direct production of The Campus Edition. Another Point of View Student Thinks 1USF Is Dead' Editor, Campus Edition: At exactly 12 a . m . the University df South Florida died. I don't remember the year, but I do remember the causes. \First of all, there was the question of academic freedom. You probably remember the writeups in the newspaper and then the investigations, and finally the death. asserted that the dead University will never be "resur-rected." There were immediate reactions from the student body, From the Scrounge Lounge there were mixed emotions . One 4.0 student said that it was bound to happen at a University where only se lected speakers were allowed to speak. Another comment was that surely the President could have given the Univer sity artificial respiration, at least until it was "out of danger." Writers RQP Gladue, Defend Fraternities There were comments from all around the state. The governor said -that it must have.been a suicide. The state legislators from Hillsborough County said it was murder. The President of the University had no comment about the death. He only said that it could have happened to any University. Moreover, he said that It wouldn't really matter because a dead University would attract as many faculty members as a live one. (And a look at the .)faculty members of the University surely verifies this: a complete change in the Psychology Department, a drastic change in both the History and English Departments, a m a j o r change in the Political Science Department, and finally a significant change in the Philosophy Department.) The president of the student body asked the legislature to pass a resolution to offer a day of remembrance for the dead University. m might be noted that the resolution never got out of debate.} The director of the library asked that the library be closed until all "improper" material had been taken out as was re quested by the great committee in the sky. Reliable sources said that the funeral would be held after the removal of the President. Moreover, other sources said that the funeral would be a birth . There were several suggestions that the entire Establishment (a dministration) be removed. However, some of the mem bers of the Establishment objected strenuously to the idea. One had the audacity to say that they had no part in the death . According to other members of the academic community, only certain remedial measures could now save the pead U niversity . One o f the thfngs men tioned was complete academic freedom for both the students and the professors. At the time of this release, the Establish ment had complied by invitin g William Buckley and John Stormer as speakers representing aU viewpoints. I Dear Editor, After reading Pete Gladwe's article on "Greek Week" we would like to make some com ments: Every year the Greeks spon sor their Greek Week. At this time the sororities and fra ternities on campus sponsor various activities such as the Greek Sing , Chariot Race, and Greek Skits. They are n o t closed, private functions but are open to all students to enjoy. s c h o o 1 or g anizations. We would like to point out to Mr. Gladue that the president and vice president of the S . A . ; the Executive Council of the University Center Program Council; and the past editor of the Aegean are all Greeks. Yes, Greeks do care about tlreir school and participate actively in leadership posi tions on campus to work with and serve their fellow stu dents . Tom Schulz and The American Association of Univer sity Professors said that the death would make a significant difference in the re cruiting practices of the University. At the time of this release only two hun dred profes sors have declined to come and teach at the University, according to reliable sources. When one join s a sorority or fraternity he m a kes friend-Jerry Canfield ships that last lon ger than Members of CRATOS Someone asked for an inquest, but the President said that the cause of the death was unimportant. It has been rumored that a wild pig who no longe11 chews gum at the University has demanded the inquest. But at the present time the news releases are1 being si lenced by some strange, weird force. It can be said that the entire political and social atmosphere for both the students and faculty has been one ap propriate for a dead University morbid. From a communique at a California University, an unknown professor has -RICK RUI\'IRELL just his four years of college. Fraternity Just like any other organiza-T--------------------------------------------tion, a sorority or fraternity offers a challenge to its mem bers -to work together with a gro up of people and pro vides them with social, aca demic, and cultural eJq>eri ences that they will be able to use once they graduate and go out into their chosen ca reer. Every sorority or fraternity member has pride in his or ganization and his school. It is not an uncommon occur rence to see the various Greeks donatin g their time to service projects to d o n a t e their money t-o the student scholarship fund or workin g in the mobile X-ray unit to help out in anyway that they are able.

One sometimes wonders if non-G r e e k s feel that they are missin g part of their ed ucation because they do not get the opportunity to form close friendships and also I the opportunity to _ serve their" school and commun ity. One final statement, many Greeks take an active part in THIS I BELIEVE I I Personal Freedom Is Dual Measure I @ This is a statement of philosophy ONE THREAT to the personal free achieved. Thoreau discovered this prepared for the Campus Times by Dr. dom is found in the unmeasured when the tax collector came knockAnthony w.

ZAITZ Some years ago, at Amherst, Mass ., I was present when Robert Frost discussed the importance of personal freedom. He had just taken part in a coloquium on freedom as expressed through poetry. He talked of man's con sta nt effort to achieve freedom "from",s omething in life. Frost insisted it was more important to achieve free dom "for" something. This, he said, was the more rewarding to life, providing both direction pur1 po se. IT SEEMS to me that it is impossi ble to separate the two freedoms.

Of course, "com p 1 e t e" freedom cannot be TOTAL FREEDOM the right to do exactly a s one pleases whenever one wishes to do so -can lead to an archy . This , then, ca n result in com plete selfishness and a complete dis regard of other people. This is not to su gges t that adjust ment and acceptance are the ultimate goa ls of human extstence. As in the c1se of Thoreau, the r e are times when a conscious, decisive choice to oppose the crowd is demanded of those who uphold eternal values. Pleasant and important as it is for all of us to feel accepted and wanted in a group , it is equally important for persons to stand alone rather than violate person al integrity. History speaks eloquently of indi viduals who have thus stood alone . This I believe.
