Also change d was the Uni versity Traffic Cour t, which was made into a Student Traf fic Courl. It would hear ap peals of parking citations is sued to students by the SecuMental Hospital Asked For USF Board of Regents Chairman Chester H. Ferguson said last week he has asked the State Cabinet to consider locating a state mental hospital at USF. rity Office. The finished document is up for student approval today in four polling places: the Busi ness Administration Building, the Fine Arts Humanities Building, the Engineering Building, and the University Center. Polls are open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. THERE WILL have to be t wice the number of "yeas" t han "nays" for passage. or two-thirds approval of those voting. Inclusion of Greeks came a week after the SA legislature, a great many members of which are Greeks, decided to Jet the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council de cide on fraternity and sorority acceptance. dents. Staff appeals will re main in the jurisdiction of the Traffic Committee. Presently, the T raffic Com mittee hears all traffic cita tion appeals. IT WAS the third revision of Traffic Court makeup during the constitutional d e b a t e, which has continued for five weeks. The court originally had three students, one ad ministration member , and one faculty member to hear all citatio n appeals. It was changed to four stu dents , three faculty, and two administration members two weeks ago, with the latest re vision changi ng it to a student traffic court, hearing onl y stu dent appeals. Photo by Richard Smoot Southern Comfort The $2.5-million facility, au thorized by the 1965 Legisla ture and now headed for "an urba n location on the West Coast," would be a part of USF's proposed medical cen ter complex which will in clude the University's College of Medicine, a teaching hospi tal and a Veterans Adminis tratio n Hospital . ing the hospital there (at USF). It would mean less cost in designing the University's teaching hospital because it would not be necessary to in clude in it special facilities for the treatment of mental cases. "It would enhance the men t al hospital's effectiveness to have a medical school and its staff of doctors nearby. It would help the school because a mental hospital would be staffed by outstanding psychi atrists and specialists in treating mental disorder s and they could participate in the teaching program." The Student Organizations Review Board would lake lhe place of the Student Affairs Committee in making the final recommendation on stu dent organizations to Dean of Student Affairs Herb-ert J . Wunderlich . The Student Af. fairs Committee previously had had jurisdiction over all student orga nizations. Church affiliated student or ganizations, previously ex empt f r om Student Organiza tions R eview Board jurisdic tion, were also put into Re view Board boundaries. The present constitution was a p p r o v e d in 1964. Changes included in the re vised constitution, up for ap proval toda y, include a more explicit presidential succes sio n provision, the Student Traffic Court, the Student Or gani zatio n s R eview Board, a new system of representation which has commuter, resi dence , and college ass ociation representatives, provision for an attorney general, and a special summer quorum pro vision to allev iate attendance probl-ems .

By BOB VAN BUSKIRK Correspondent Since las t September there have been various c han ges in USF ' s traffic reg ulations, in cluding hi gher fines, new reg istration fees, revocat i o n of graduate assistant staff park ing statu s, and restriction of frf' .shman parking . There is a vehicle registra tion fee of $5 for the fir s t ve hicle, and a $2 fee for the sec ond. Students who take six credit hours or l ess will be is s u e d deca l s at no charge. There will be class rank distinction on parking decals . Commuting freshmen will purchase green decals and be allowed to park only in lots 10 and 19. ACCORDING TO James D . Garner, superintendent of se c urity and comm unic ations, th e reason for the restriction is th a t commuting fre s hmen and transfer s tudent s will number 3.500, or one third of the student body. Sophomores, juniors, a nd se niors will purchase white and ye llow s tickers which are good for all l ots except 10 and 19. Lot 18 is for student s who are issued deca l s at no charge. Resident students will pur chase orange stickers and will be lim ited to parking in dorm lots between 7 a.m. and 5 p . m. on normal schoo l or working days. STAFF MEMBERS must purc hase gold and white park ing decals to use staff spaces, and there will be a blue decal for staff members who do not want to purchase a decal. Blue d ecal parking , howeve r , is limited to Lot 2 0 , directly across from Andros Cafeteria. Garner said s tudents may lose parking privileges in part of l ot 12, in front of Delta H a ll , to allow staff more park ing spaces, but this dec is ion, he said, is to be made by the Tra ffic Committee . A 383-car student parking lot will be completed in Sep tember, adjacent to the pres ent lot south of Beta Hall. It is to be Lot 17. FUTURE PLANS for stu dent parking will involve enlargin g the freshmaJt lot 19 to hold 2,500 cars, to be paid f rom car registrat ion f ees and new fines. Major changes in fines have been made since last Septem ber. Parking vio l ations have increased to $2, $5, a nd $10 for the first, secon d, a nd third of fenses; m o v i n g violations have incr ease d to $5, $10, and $15 respectively. for the first, S10 for t h e sec ond and subsequent violations. Garner said one student last year didn't get grades until he paid the vehicle registration fines tot aling $47. An other stu dent had up to eight fines for the same offense. The cost under the new fines would have totaled $75.

The Michigan S l a te Univer s i ty Board of Tru s t ees ap proved an instate tuition in crease ba s ed on s tudents' abil ity -to-pay, and a flat out-of state h ike of $180 Ij-' a nor mal year's attendanco2. The ac tion was taken to s upplement inadequate l eg is lative appropriations which l e ft MSU S llbstanti ally short of it s p r ojec ted 1967-68 operat in g budget of $66.5million . On a stric t party s plit, the Democrati c members edged out the three Rep ubl i can tru s t ees on a motion to adopt a uniqu e tuition plan whereby undergraduate in state students will be charged three per cent of their par ents' income , with a mini mum tuition for a year of $354 a nd a maximum of $ 500. TilE preceden t setting ability to -pay plan, the three per cent rate app lie s to family incomes between a minimum of $11,800 and a maximum figure of $16,666. Students will be asked to bring a copy of their federal incom e tax (form) so tax fig ures can be u sed as a basi s for fee assessment It i s planned t o put the new s tep increase in effect this fa ll. At present, tuition for both in-stale level s is $340. Out of -state t u i t i o n , currently $1,924, will be set at $1,:!00 for undergradutc s and $1,230 for graduate s tud ents. OUT -OFSTATE students represent a bout 21 per cent of the MSU enrollment, expected to be around 39,000 t hi s fall. The trus tees ' announcement came a day after the Wayne S tate (Detroit) Governors in creased in state tuition $99 and out-of -state fees by $300. Both deci sions , and methods of approach will be we ig hed by th e University Regents, who will set a tuition increase at their next meeting. In other action, the trustees followed on the heels of other state un iversities and raised its $870a -year dormitory fees to $900, due to increased labor and food costs. At MSU, al most three-fourths of t he stu dents use Univ ersity-owned housing . The tuition increases were necessitated because of a $4.1million deficiency in the 1967-68 MSU operating budget. Some $2million of the cost will be defrayed by out of-state tuition hikds, by tui tion from increased enro llment, a nd fro m adjustment of certain debt schedules. The remaining $2.1million will be obtained through the in-state increase. ate meeting th e proposal for a new course , EDR 530 Correc tive Reading for Classroom Teachers was approved with no discussion. A proposed revi sion of the Physical Education Profes sional Preparation Program was presented and adopted after some discussion. RUSSELL l'tf.

Editorials And Commentary 2 Au9. 2, 1967, U. of South Florida, Tampa Pass It We've got a new University Traffic Court. We've got a student majority committee to judge ac ceptance of student organizations. We've got a new system of repre sentation. We've got a comprehen sive presidential succession provi sion. We can review and make our own recommendations on new stu dent conduct rules, and we can be sure of operating in the summer. All these are improvements that were put into the revised Stu dent Association constitution, and we think you should approve the new document . It is much better than continuing under the old one. The document you are asked to approve is printed on page three, THE CONSTITUTION is somewhat weaker than the original re vision presented last June. Pre viously, the all-student SA execu tive board was given approval power over student organizations, and the University Traffic Court did have a student majority -three students, one faculty, and one administration member. But the SA legislature was per suaded to make these two conces sions, transferral of student orga nization approval power to the Stu dent Organizations Review Board, and adding two faculty, one admin istration member, and one additional student to the Traffic Court. The former cohcession was in the interest of domestic l!fniversity tranquility. Dean of Student Affairs Herbert J. Wunderlich warned of possible agitators and the pressures they can bring to bear on a student-only approval board. We agreed with him when he said he was unwilling to have a student only approval board decide on distinguished or ganizations. Phi Beta Kappa shouldn't need student approval. WE DID perk up our ears at the hint of outside agitators, but hav ing had so little experience with them, it is difficult to tell how to deal with them properly. Dean Wunderlich has had some experi ence with them, and has heard of them through correspondence from Northern colleagues. The SA, until it gains some ex' perience with radical and militant agitators, was wise not to fight ad ministration requests on this issue. Under the current constitution, however, the student minority Stu dent Affairs Committee judged stu dent organizations, so the more militant student on campus cannot say they got nothing. With these and the other improvements men tioned, the new constitution should be passed, because it is a good document . AbilityTo-Pay Michigan State University, in the same boat as Florida's state universities about budget cuts (or should we say insufficient in creases ) have resorted to an abil ity-to-pay tuition, a plan we think isn't so bad, in principle. MSU is having all its students pay 3 per cent of their parents' in come, or 3 per cent of their own if they are self-supporting, for tui tion. If a student made $3,000 pe r year and is self-supporting, he would pay $90 tuition. If he is sup ported by his parents, who made $3-million the previous year, it would cost $90,000 in tuition. State universities in Michigan are on the quarter system. OF COURSE, the $3-million family would probably send the student to another university at that price, so the 3 per cent tuition would have to be almost universal among the good colleges to be effective. There is no question hut that a 3-per-cent-of-income tuition would raise more money at Michigan State. Its annual tuition has been lower than Florida's. At USF, with most families with students here having income around $5,000, a $150 per quarter fee would be prev alent, and those families with in comes of $10,000 would be paying $300 per quarter at the 3 per cent rate. The principle we agree with is the ability-to-pay concept that is certainly justified. But 3 per cent may be a bit high for Florida fami lies. A least a percentage-of-income tuition will take care of the argument that colleges favor the rich, hut we wonder if the rich would argue about discrimination against the rich. We don't think they should complain. See You In September Today marks the last issue of The Oracle for its first calendar year. From the experiences of our first year, we can look forward op timistically to our second, starting Monday, Sept 18. Although we'll greet you again on a Monday, we will continue to publish each Wednesday thereafter, starting Sept. 27. The page one nameplate says volume two, number five. Last April, after our first academic year (volume one, number 28), The Oracle's first editor, Harry Haigley, said, "The newspaper will move ... We feel we have, or at least have attempted to establish a new concept of journalism for a college newspaper." The Oracle's first paper, issued Sept. 6, 1966, said in its first edito rial, "We feel that the pro cess of acquiring a college education in volves more than academic pur suits and that the weekly produc tion of a university newspaper is a vital part of this learning process for interested students. "THUS, WE have made our goals twofold. First, we feel it is our duty to serve the University community.

The Oracle is a col lege newspaper, with items of in terest for all segments of our di versified community. "And in this respect, we will publish only news we feel will in form, enlighten, or benefit members of the University. We will strive to evaluate articles on the news value and not whether some one in the University would or would not like to see the informa tion in print.'' That was volume one, number one. Since then, The Oracle has published 42 times. In that span, no t once has the administration ever attempted to suppress an arti cle, nor has it ever required that it be preread before publication. IN NON-EDITORIAL matters, we have taken stories to administrators directly involved to ensure accuracy. But never have we been forced to change our editorial poli cy or a story, and only once have we clearly suspected that an agen cy of the University changed its in formation to conform to what it considered a good image. It was small enough to ignore , character istic of bureaucracies in general. This is in contrast to many other college newspapers across the country, who, hav ing Student Publications Boards ruling their editorial co ntent and their staff se lections, are in the shadow of tight editorial restrictio ns, with any re semblance of editorial freedom in visible, and if exercised, purely co incidental to Board objective. In this respect we are free, and for this freedom, we are grateful. We shall contin ue to exercise this freedom so long as it is available to us, or as long as we don't abuse it based on journalistic ethics. LAST FALL, we started with an experiment. Next fall, we will con tinue with what has been rated as one of the top two weekly college newspapers in the nation by the American Newspaper Publishers Association. We hope you have enjoyed us, and will join us again Sept. 18. 1 National Social Science Foundation Needed EDITORS NOTE: This Is the second of two articles. The first dealt with the problems faced by the National Founda tion on the Arts and Humanities. By PHIL SEMAS Collegiate Press Service WASHINGTON, D .C. Social scien tists are asking for their own national foundation, similar to those already in existence for the natural sciences and the arts and humanities. The Senate's Subcommittee on Government Research completed hearings on a bill to create a National Foundation for the Social Sciences, i ntroduced by the subcommittee chairman, Sen. Fred R. Harris (D.-Okla.). There was no indica tion when the bill would be reported out ot committee, although Harris says he has "no doubt" it will pass. The foundation to be created under the bill would give grants for basic social science research. The lion's share of those grants would probably go to colleges and universities. A MAJOR argument in favor ot the foundation has been that the social sci ences are woefully underfinanced by the federal government. In introducing the bill, Senator Harris said the social scieqces receive about $250 million from all federal agencies, compared to $6.5 billion for the sciences. Testifying before subcommittee last week, Ross Stagner, head o! the psychology department at Michigan's Wayne State University, noted that the National Science Foundation (NSF), a major source of basic social science re search, gives only $20 to 30 million of its $500 million appropriation to the social sciences. RENSIS LIKERT of the University of Michigan added that "relative to our na tional resources, we allocate less to the social sciences than do several other na tions." But there is no guarantee that the creation of a National Social Science Foundation will add that much in addi tional funds, at least for the moment. The bill authorizes only $20million more for grants, although Harris says that fig ure is an arbitrary one, which will be de bated in the committee. The creation of the Arts and Humanities Foundation has not brought much additional funds into those areas, when compared with the massive funding of the natural sciences. And others fear that the creation of the new foundation will result in a cut back of other funds for the social sci ences, particularly as provided by NSF. RUT THERE are other arguments be sides financial ones for creating a foun dation. Among those advanced during the hearings: Harris has emphasized that a ma jor purpose of his bill is to give the so cial sciences more national "visibility," which they cannot get while they are part of NSF . An argument t hat may carry strong weight with many Congressmen is that the aid of social scientists is needed to solve many of the national problems now worrying Congr ess , most notably crime and racial upheaval. The advice of s ocial scientists is needed in greater amounts in planning and carrying out massive federal pro grams. NO ONE, including outright oppo nents of Harr is's bill, will disagre e that social science is important and does not receive sufficient federal funds. But many say the answer is an expansion of social science division of NSF, rather than a new foundation. NSF director Leland Haworth made the strongest case for that point of view in his testimony before the committee in February . Hs pointed out that NSF al ready plans to increase its involvement in the social sciences by 25 per cent this year and that NSF funds for social science have been in creas ing faster than any other division. The House has al ready passed a revision of the NSF au thorizing legislation which explicitly calls for NSF involvement in the social sciences. At present, NSF social science activity is carried on under the rubric of "other sciences." Haworth argues that creation of a new foundation would cut down on "the growing interrelation and interactioa between the social and natural sci ences." AUSTIN RANNEY of the University of Wisconsin says the proposal might re sult in more funds but it fails on the "visibility" and other criteria. "As long as it is a part of NSF, it will be a kind of social science approved by physical sci entists," he says. Others argue that there's not that much overlapping anyway. Robert Bower , director of the bureau of Social Science Research, Inc., a private group, told the committee, "When academic researchers approach NSF, the physicist deals with a physicist and the social sci entist with a social scientist, with no better chance of meeting one another in NSF than they had on campus." But social scientists are not unani mous in their support of the foundation proposal and many who support it do so with reservations and concerns. THERE IS great concern among so cial scientists about federal control and influence. Some objec t, for example, to a provision in the bill wich allows the foun. dation to support international research "consistent with the national objectives of the United States." They say that may result in "undue restrictions" on re search. Others worry about whether Congress will allow the foundation to support con troversial and " sensitive" research into such areas as religion, race relations, t he distribution of power in the U.S., the Presidency, and the Congress itself. Why Not ETV Room? By BOB BROWN Correspondent Nighttime entertainment at USF as sumes many forms, but one which main tains its popularity is television. For some students, TV provides reprieve from study or a surrogate for the printed news media. Others gain thrills as their alteregos emerge victorious night after night; to these, staring long hours at the screen becomes a mode of life. Recently an interesting question was posed to me by a concerned friend. What would happen, he said, if some evening you walked into the southside TV lounge in the UC, strode forward down the crowded aisle and deftly turned the channel control to Channel 3 or 16? After a long pause I admitted that I would probably be mobbed, dragged from the room and all but impaled. The thought of such violence on campus makes one shudder, but the hypothesis points out the two functions of television: to entertain and educate. Although both purposes are interrelated, television net works serve these two different prin ciples. IN THE Tampa Bay area Channels 13, 10, and 8 provide a wide range of enter tainment; Channels 3 and 16 are primar ily educational. At present it is difficult to find a TV room in which one may view educational programs during the prime evening hours. It might be wise to research the feasibility of a separate room for educa tional television only. The effort may reap worthwhile benefits for many stu dents who now find access to educational TV viewing limited. Make Space To Fit Cars Large, small, medium-sized cars all shapes and s izes to fit all tastes: into the University swarm students in these cars to find a parking space to squeeze into, jump from the car, and dash off to class to their seats b efore the bell. THE SCENE is familar a nd fr ustrat -West Coast Tests Say LSD Innocent Of Mental Mayhem SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (CPS) -It i s difficult to blame LSD for the mental illness which hospitalizes a few of its users. That's the verdict of three psychia trists at the Univeristy of California's San Francisco Medical Center who stud ied 20 hospitalized LSD users. In all but two of 20 cases the patients ha d been emotionally ill before they took LSD and t h e drug had not precipitated the illness, the psychiatrists said. THE PSYCIDATRISTS, Drs. John D . Hensala, Leon J. Epstein, and K. H Blacker, also said they would not apply the term "love generation" to the LSD users. They said they found many of the patients "filled with anger they could not co ntrol." The LSD users were compared with a similar group of patients who had not taken the drug. The average age of the two groups was slightly over 22. The researchers found these differences be tween the two: -Non-users tended to resolve family conflicts inside the fa mily ; users tended to see k solutions outside in anti-social or unso cial b ehavior. -Non-users were argumentative; u sers were escapists in their lan guage, "dropouts." -Non-users were relatively more sta ble in their sex live s, but LSD users had a history of "chaotic" se-x behavior. ) -Non-users did better at school and at work than did the user s. ing. When time is running short, there can be additional irritation in the recur ring case of the hidden car, the small car conveniently blocked from even an astute parker's view by a big, elongated automobile. These two problems are disgustingly obvious. The traffic fees which will be implemented this fall will help rid the campus of its parking cramps, but a space deficiency will still exist. The Federal Government , with park ing valued up to $10,000 per space in the new Sam Rayburn Office Building, has found a solution to this ostensible prob lem. The parking lots surrounding the State Department Building are lined with large and small spacing, the large spaces for larger cars and the smaller for the "bugs . " These two sizes of spaces pro' vided an immediate 23 per cent saving in parking space at inception. AS NEW parking lots are planned and built at increased cost on our campus, it might be wise to reconsider our present situation. There is a perpetual shortage of parlcing space; to utilize our present space to the full is essential and a possi ble fut ure moneysaver. OUR READERS WRITE 'Comic Heart' Cast Blasts Anonymous Play Reviewer I have been an active , serious partici pant in theatre for five years. Dur:ing this time I have never known anyone who has taken seriously any articles written by the critics, or more appropri ately, the "reviewers" of the Tampa, St. Petersburg, and USF papers. A strong example of why this is so appeared in the July 26 edition of The Oracle. This supposed review or summary of Theatre USF's "The Comic Heart" was nothing more than a selfindulgent, non objective, unfair piece of bad journalism. WHY DID The Oracle print the arti cle without identifying its author? Why did you subject Theatre USF and The Oracle to the indignity of this reviewer's trite cuteness? A term such as "jolly green giant" says nothing about an ac tor' s perfo r mance, although the implica tion is not a favorable one. A good critic doesn't waste time prov ing how clever and cute he can be. He says w hat he has to say directly and clearly, and whether it be pro or con, he always shows in his criticism respect for the effort that everyone involved h as made. If the production fails because the effort was obviously l acking, then he should bring that out, but in terms in keeping with his responsible position. I suggest you identify this cri ti c and all future critics and I further suggest you establish a standard of excellence for future writers, or they will be no better than the "critics" who write for the area papers. THE ORACLE has earn ed a fine rep utation and many of us were beginning to respect your critical opinions , thanks mainly to Larry Goodman, former Fine Arts Editor. But you have begun to sound jus t as bad, for different reasons, as the two papers an d it looks as though any criticisms your reviewers make in the future, good or bad, will be disre garded and mistrusted. I, for one, cannot and will not accept a r ev iew that is not based on sound basi c precept s of dramatic criticisms embel li s h e d with educated taste and opinion. Your critic, whoever he is, is neither educated nor tas t eful. If The Oracle con tinues to attempt passing off their ridiculous trivia as serious critical commen tary, the deserved success of its first year, the hard work that made it possi ble, and the ensuing national recognition will have bee n for nothing. FINALLY, let me make it clear that I say these th ings out of a genuine con cern, not a personal grievance. I have been mentioned several times in The Oracle, always in a favorable vein, and I, along with everyone else at Theatre USF, a ppreciate the space we are given for publicity purposes. The lack of taste and good manners reflected in the c urrent review casts an aspersion on The Oracle and achieves no real purpose. Your repu tation is too good to be thrown away. Don't permit it to happen. FRANK 1\IORSE 3TA We withlteld his name because he is close ly connected . with the Theatre staff and cast, and we sought to prevent ad verse reactions toward him while still in volved nith the Festival. His criticisms were valid. He deals with the whole Fes tival below. .. ...,,.,, Festival Newcomers Should Smile;l Performance Not Worth It I i By H. W. CRAIG Of The Theatre Staff This past Saturday night the USF Theatre Arts Department brought another successful Summer Repertory Festival to a close . The new comer s to the staff certainly have something to be pleased with and proud of. Having seen all the performances of the plays, it will be easier to r epresent a bird's-eye view of the whole Festival. "The Rainmaker" was s ucces-sful in purpose. To watch Paul Li Calsi work was sheer delight. A little more tender ness from the character of Starbuck, played by Barry Simms, would h a ve helped certain scenes greatly. The father character, H. C. Curry, played by Ed Thompson, s hould be a real is t in his out look toward life. HOWEVER, NOAH, his son , played by John Ryan, has lines that portrayed H. C. Curry as an idealist. This is not to say that Noah Curry was not a fun char acter to watch, but the portrayal of H. C. Curry as an ideal ist was disturb ing . Orchids to the cast and crew. Elyot Chase , pla ye d by Frank Morse, and Amanda Pryne, played by Mary Ann Bentley, walked away with a substantial amount of the audience responses. "Pri vate Lives" only got better as the Festi val progressed. Jerry Peeler, who pl ayed Victor Prynne, was much more under standab le vocally tha n he had been pre viously. Sibyl Chase, played by Claudia Kal die, improved during the progression of the Festival. The final performance was more relaxed an d controlled. THE ANSWER to a former question "Did you really pick these plays?" was never fully realized. However, the final pe rformances of "The Tiger" and "The Typists" were humorous. "The Tiger" is generally accepted as being based on a turn a bout. If this is all that the audience is to re ceive from its performance, then the trouble that has to be gone throu gh to perform it is not wort h the effort, no matter how good or poo rly the perfor mance is received. Any controlled blocking would not be ne cessary. The makeup for "The Typ ists" was much improved the final per formance. Saturday night's audience did benefit from the extra time the talent had to form the performance past open ing night. ., •

• 4-THE ORACLE-Aug. 2, 1967, U. of South Florida, Tampa USF' s Chinsegut Hill Retrea Peacefu By BARBARA WRIGHT Feature Editor CWnsegut Hill is the University of South Florida's educational center lo cated five miles north of Brooksville, Florida, off U.S. Highway 41. It is a 180-acre tract surrounded by a 6,000 acre agricultural experiment station. The 15 room, century-old mansion is furnished with antique period pieces, many of which were part of the orig ional furnisWngs. The site now known as Chinsegut Hill was staked from the United States Government by a Colonel Pearson in 1842. The word Chinsegut comes from the Innuit Indian tribe, one of the northernmost tribes in Alaska. Its liter al meaning is ''The Spirit of Lost Things," but the more liberal inter pretation was "a place where things of true values that have been lost may be found again." Part of the present house was built in 1849, with later additions made in 1926. In 1904, the property was sold to Colonel Raymond Robinsminer, pros pector , minister, lawyer, social work er, social economist, and economic ad visor to five presidents. WITH THE encouragement of Dr. and Mrs. Robins, the U.S. Government installed the Central Florida Experi ment Station, wWcb is one of the most successful in operation today. The De partment of Agriculture Beef Cattle Research Station, at the present time, consists of approximately 6,000 acres, of which 4,000 are pine forest which is to be left intact. Since 1958, the house and several acres surrounding it have been used by USF as a conference center and biolog ical research center. USF uses Chinse gut Hill on occasion for student and faculty conferences and retreats. A long-range plan is being developed for using a portion of the Hill as a biologi cal station and conference center. One of the primary reasons for the Univer sity's interest in the hill for a biological station is that it bas wooded areas tbat have been undisturbed for years. The retreat is used also by Universi ty Center students during their mem bership drive. The new and old mem bers attend a workshop and activities at Chinsegut. Other groups, such as church, sorority and education confer ences meet here. The center is open "to any group as long as it is for edu cational purposes" is the policy set up. FACILITIES accommodate a maxi mum of 20 persons for overnight stays and groups of up to 70 for meetings. There is no charge for daytime use. Meals are available from a private ca terer. You are, however, charged for meals and overnight accommodations. Anyone wishing to visit Cbinsegut Hill should contact the Coordinator, Larry G. Romig, at the Center for Con tinuing Education, University Center (CTR) 195, ext. 185, or contact Harold Thornton, Resident Caretaker, Cbinse gut Hill. If just staying for the day, Mrs. Jackolin Eichelberger, CTR 124, should be contacted. This unusual water tower is no longer used, but is a focal point of the grounds because of its unique green color. The gate leading into the grounds comes after a surpnsmg drive up the hill. Looking down the up staircase reveals outdoor charm that gives Chinsegut Hill its atmosphere.

"After all," he said, "the smallest work(!ble unit students will deal with after graduation will be the world. " problems beyond human capaci ty. Best of all, Caffrey said, they can free administrat'ors to spend more time with students. between types of structures (personal vs. authoritarian; lec ture vs. discussion classes) may be the only way to really person alize education in large institu tions." manity." He s uggested the mi nority (administrators) should serve the majority (students), and that both sho uld work to gether to revolutionize the uni versities. sized the need for careful plan ning and the generating of guid ing ideas before beginning. BERKELEY , Calif. Elimi nation of large classes and col leges, fewer computers, and more contact between teachers and individual students are often seen as ways of making higher education more "personal." STUDENTS BENEFIT most from personal contact with the instructor if they have low mo tivation, a factual orientation, a high level of sociability, and a high need f o r affiliation, McKeachie adds. "There is a sign on the door at Stanford which says: 'The object of computers is insight, not numbers.' " Caffrey said. AS FOR cooperation, stu dents, faculty and administra tors must work together to radi cally reform universities if they are to avoid becoming obsolete, the conference d e 1 e g a t e s agreed. JAMES NIXON, former stu dent body president of San Francisco State College, agreed with Dixon on the need to in volve students, faculty, and ad ministrators in charge, thereby forging again an academic com munity. But the gap between students and other members of the aca demic world is one of the most difficult things to eradicate. One college president told Nixon: "I very much fear the majority of students are neither intelligent nor articulate. We need more students like you." He said Nixon showed the qualities of an administrator, rather than those of a student. Bu t the real solution may be keeping college programs flexi ble enough to allow education to be tailored to the needs of indi vidual students . In fact, big classes and computers may be effective tools in this process. "The ideal educational system is not one in which each student has individual attention , " says Wilbert McKeachie, a Universi ty of Michigan professor. Many McKeachie was talking to 80 college presidents and deans at a conference on personalizing higher education sponsored by the Western Interstate Commis sion for higher Education (WICHF.) and the University of California's Center for Research and Development in Higher Education. As for big classes and univer sities, Ian Thompson, a WICHE COMPUTERS? JOHN Caf frey, director of the Commis sion on Administration of the American Council on Education, says they "can be as personaliz ing as movable type and the printing press." Computers can be used to re duce drudgery , speed up sched uling, instr uct students, review and monito r records, artd solve CONFERENCE participants emphasized a flexible educa tional system and cooperation among students, faculty, and administrators, as keys to per sonalizing !1igher education. A college must be willing to try new ideas, like breaking a university up into small cluster colleges and modernizing the curriculum to deal with current problems. McKeachie put it this way: "Giving students a wide choice James P. Dixon, president of Antioch, praised students' "enormous energy and high idealism" as their main contribu tion to the work of pulling down the system. "Education is becoming wrapped up in creative custody and in politics," Dixon said, "rather than the battles of hu"The most important thing is to remember that change can not come from the top down , but it has to come from the bot tom," Nixon said. Nixon, who is one of the founders of the Ex perimental College (one of the earliest and most successful free universities), emphaLater, another college presi dent demonstrated the student administration gap. He looked at the lounging students and hippies on Telegraph Avenue , near the Berkeley campus, and said, "They should all sent to the front in Vietnam.

(CPS) Proposed increases in in terest rates on Federal col lege housing loans will cost students $100 extra a year in dormitory fees. That's what Pres. David W . Mullins of the University of Arkansas, representing six major education associations, told a Senate subcommittee last week. At present the government loans $300-million a year to colleges for housing construc tion at a 3 per cent interest rate. The Johnson Administra tion has pr oposed a change wh ich would have the interest rate figured on a formula based on "the current aver age market yield on outstand ing market able obligations of the United States." Under present conditions this would raise the rate to 4-% per cent. leges pay off the l oans through student charges for housing. Thus they would have to increase these charg es to pay the higher rates . The proposed increases are only under consideration in the Senate. In the House, Rep. 'vVright Patman (D.-Tex.), chairman of the Banking and Currency Comm it tee, did not inc lude the new rates when he introduced the Administra tion's housing and urban de velopment bill. MULLINS ALSO objected because the proposed increase in loan rates is not accompa nied by any increase in funds for loans. The Administra tion's plan would continue to make $300-million available for housing each year. An independent study sup ported by the American Coun cil on Education (ACE) says that $1.5-billion will be needed for college housing next year. The ACE says $1-billion will have to come from the Feder al Government. One way to meet this need, Mullins said, is through bills introduced by Sen. Jacob Jav it s (R.-N.Y.) and . Rep. Patsy Mink (D.-Hawaii) . interest. The Federal Govern ment would reimburse col leges for whatever interest they would have to pay in ex cess of three per cent. Sen. William Proxmire (D. Wis.), a member of the s u b committee, said he favors the Javits-Mink plan. He said he thinks direct Federal loans . actually cut down the amount of money available for hous ing, because colleges won't go to the private market, where interest rates are higher, as long as Federal funds are available at low rates. The plan would cost the Federal Government consider ably less than the direct loan program, only about $10million. Proxmire said he ex pected this program would re ceive greater support from an Administration under heavy pressure to cut the budget and lower the national debt than would a decrease in the inter est rates on direct loans. present college housing pro gram is at a standstill. The Government has stopped ac cepting and approving an y college housing loans, even though an additional $300million in funds is available as of July 1. Russell Thackery , executive dire ctor of the National Asso ciation of Sta te Universities and Land-Grant Colleges, said the Government is waiting for action on the proposed rate in crease before making any more loans. "Some institu ti ons are just not building," he said, "wh ile others have private loans, at higher inter est rates, which means they have to charge students more." ALMA HARRISON asks you to call or come to World Travel Center Co-educational Housing Units Lead To Mature Relationships THE SECRETARY of Hous ing and Urban Development would then be allowed to lower the rate by as much as 1 per cent. But, Mullins point ed out to the subcommittee, " There is no way to t ell how the Secretary would decide how much, if any, of the inter est rate he would subsidize, so there is no way to tell what interest rate w o u 1 d be charged." The $100 increase per stu dent would result bec a use col-THE JAVITS and Mink bills would make available an ad clitiona l $300-m ill ion in loans from private le nders , who usually charge 4 to 5 per cent BUT BOTH Proxm ire and Sen. John Sparkman (D. A I a.), the subcommittee chairman, said they would not favor both a decrease in the rates on direct Federal loans and the Javits bill. "I expect that when the subcommittee gets to deciding this in execu tive session, you can get one or the other but not both," said Sparkman. Mullins also noted that the * * Adult Students React FOR TICKETS AND RESERVATIONS v' Airlines v' Cruises v' Tours By SHERRIE CASE Correspondent Students who live in USF residen ce hall s may not real ize what it would be like not Come alive! Youreinthe Pepsi generation! having c;oeducational housing units. In the fall with the comple tion of Fontana Hall, students also will get a taste of coedu cational dormitories. Many students take these housing units and dormitories for granted and are not fully aware of the reasons, other than cost, why USF has these special types of college resi dence halls for men and women. L'NLIKE THE COLONIAL c olleges where residences were used primarily for the c ontrol of student behavior, the residence hall today is the students' home during the col lege term, either by his per sonal selection or by colle ge reg ulation. For this reason, it is quite essent ial that the service pro vided in the college halls is desirable. And as a result of the college educational sys tem, the residence hall must also have educational pur poses which support the ob jectives of the college. R a nking over any other fac tor in college learning is the 24-hour a day influence of the student living group. A stu dent's ad ju stment to society, his scholarship, his attitudes, and his mental and phy sica l health as a whole are largely determined by where and how he lives. A BASIC AMERICAN tradition is sai d to be that the residence halls perform the function of control over stu dent living and conduct. 3802 NE,.TUNE (AT OALE MABRY) TAMPA. FLORIDA ..... , Today the halls are being planned to meet the require ment and needs of contempo rary life. The sharing of public areas not only eliminates the dupli catio n of facilities and contri butes many savings in con struction costs but also this joint participation in areas seems to to more mature relationships between men and women. If the hall is to aid in the in dividual's growth toward ma turity, it should be designed so that more mature re l ation ships can develop in the nor mal course of the day-to-day living. THE RESIDENCE HALL can be u sed to provide experi ences which will strengthen the sense of security, impor tant soc ial values, and the awareness of similarities bet ween people. Common-use rooms in the separate residence halls may be open to both men and women, or a single coeduca tional building may be divided vertically or horizontally into separate living sections for men and women. In the common-use of dining rooms, men as well as women have tended to become more concerned about their person al appearance and both sexes KINGCOME'S TRIMMINGS Sewing and Co5tume Supplies • Millinery and Needle Point Fla.

To USF Dorm life Anywhere -Anytime NO SERVICE CHARGE Another opinion is "The dorm setup forces students to develop self-discipline when it comes to study . " Hall advisers also have opinions of the dorm setup . "There is no strained relation ship between the sexes. Boys and girls make friends in a casual way. They eat together in the dining hall. They seem to take each other for grant ed." "GIRLS HAVE A civilizing influence on college boys. And in the presence of boys, girls are usually on their best be havior. The whole standard of cond uct is raised." At other times, in other so cieties, maybe s u ch an ar rangement of coeducational housing might be unwise, but in our time and in our socie ty; it seems to be absolutely necessary . By SANDRA EVANS and PAMELA PIFER Correspondents Every summer a number of adult students return t o col lege to further t heir educa tion. Some -work toward their master's degrees while others work toward their bache lor's degrees. Most of these adults are teachers who are striving for improvement so they may re turn to tea c hing better quali fied in the fall. But, doesn't this pose a problem concerning young mothers who, for various rea sons, must leave their fami lies and return to dorm life? In some instances, there may be problems; but it seems that the majority of women adjust very well to such separation. A YOUNG MOTHER of three said that her two oldest c hil dren were spending the s ummer with grandparents in Chicago while the youngest is s pending the summer with grandparents in Florida. She added that her youngest child had visited her in the dorm and seemed to "ap prove" of her dorm life. However, another young mother, whose husband is in Vietnam , said that her 20month-old baby, who is living with grandparents, seemed t o have grown close to them and appears to resent her since her return to school.

Dra f t Boar d Statu s Giv es Male s Fits By CALDERAZZO Starr Wri1cr Other th,m \I'Omcn, there is nothing more myst ify i ng to today's male college student than his status wit h th e draf t boar d. The information that manages to trickle o u t from those s u preme courts is often incoherent, ambi g u o u s and s elf . c ontr a dictory. Now the Senate has approved a four-year exten s ion o f the draft which is awaiting final action in the House . Here is an ex pl anation, taken in part from an articl e in the Nati o nal Observ er, of how Selective Service changes will affect men betw een 1 8 a n d 25. Q. Will college undergraduates be deferred? A. YES, COLLEGE undergraduates w ill be d e f erre d u n til they are 2 or until they complete their undergraduat e w or k , w hichever comes first, unless "lhe n eeds of th e Arme d F o rc es requires termination or restriction of such deferm ents . " Q. What must a student do to maintain his def erme nt ? A. He must make ''normal satisfactory progress," t h a t is, a grade average that will permit him to stay in school, c a r r y a f ull course load (at least seven hours under the new q uarter system), and progress at the rate uf "an academic year w i thin a calendar year," toward a bachelor's degree. Q. WI L L CLASS standing and the Se l ective Service Colleg e Qualification Test be used by draft boards in dete r m inin g whether a college student should be deferred, as they have i n the past? A. No. Q. Will a young man who has been deferred t o attend co l lege be able to get other de ferments later? A. NO, HE WILL NOT be dPferred un less he can pr ove "extreme hardship to dependents" or that he is emplo yed i n a n i ndustry or engaged in graduate Stltdy considered "vital to t he national interest." Q. What fields of graduate s tudy arc considered "vit a l to t he national interest" noN? A . Medicine. dentistry, veterinary medicine, osteopathy, op tometry, pharmacology, and chiropody (studying to be a foot specialist). Q . WILL GRADUATE students who have already been de ferred be permitted to continue working toward their ad vanced degrees? A. Th e decision on this que s tion has not yet been mad e . But the Selective Service's best guess is that they will be .allowe d to continue until they receive their d egrees. Q. What age group will be drafted first? A . TH E BILL (permits) the President to set the prime age for eligibility . He has already indicated that he w ill place 19 year olds at the top of the list but he hasn't spelled t hi s out yet in an Executive order. Among 19year-olds, the o ldest w ill be inducted first. Q . If a 19yPar old turns 20 without having been i n d u ctecl, would his chances of being inducted be reduced? A . Yes, if 19-year-olcls are de signa ted the prime age g r o up by the President, a 20year-old would be les s vu lnerabl e to t h e draf t because he would be taken only if no 19-yearo lds re mained. But if the number of persons required for t he draft went up and 20 year-olds were added to the prime age g r oup, they would become more vulnerable. Q. I S THIS A from the present policy? A. Yes. current age priorities call for drafting the o ldest men first in the eligibility pool of 19 through 25-yearol ds . Q . What will happen to men who have been given student d efermen ts but who are now 1 A? A. WHE:'ol A :\lA: s s tudent cieterment expires and he be comes 1 -A, he will be treated as though he were a 19-year old. For purposes of the draft, he will be considered 19 on his next birthday. Thu s, a young man of 22 m this gro u p whose birthday is Sept. 1, for exampl e, would be considered draftable on that date. Q. Will some men be drafted a head of those in t h e prime age group? A. Yes, young men \\'hO have not comp lied wi t h the draft law and volunteers for the draft will be int.!ucted ahead of them. Q. WILL THE LOTTERY system of oekction be used? A . No. t he new law bans any lollery. type sel ec tion without Con gressio nal approval.

Henry Parrish, in the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, says that many people have the preconceived idea that the introvert, the quiet bookworm who does not mix well socially, is more sus ceptible. L P et. 1 . 875 2 .750 3 .62 5 6 .250 8 .000 GB 1 2 5 7 This is not so. A study by Dr . Parrish, who d isco vered that. suicide is the second most common cause of death among college s t u d e n t s, shows that suicide does not belong to the studious recluse alone. Of 209 deaths of en rolled Yale students (1920-55), 25 of them, or 12 per cent , were suicides. MOST O F T HESE students were active -10 in student affairs, 10 in fraternities, and six in athletics. New Head Start Teachers Six were excellent students , 14 were average, and only five had poor grades. The ill ness factor was a minor one -three had family histories of men tal illness, and only one had a serious illness. A check on religions showed that most of the students, 20, were Prot estant, four we r e non affiliated, one was Catholic, and none were Jewish. Trained At Bay Campus By BARBAR A WRI G HT Feature Editor T he trai ning program for Head Start teachers is under w a y at the Bay Campus. Fifty teachers f r om all o ver th e s tate are in St. Petersburg parti c ip a ting in the eight week summer s e ssion , whi c h w ill e nd Aug. 1 8 .

CAROL YN SEESFEL T, di rector of training , said that the teachers will return t o teach preschool c h ildren in u n derprivileged areas. .The teachers were eac h rec ommended b y t h e directors of vario us Head Start cen t e r s in the state. Some 100 appli c a tions were screened t o sel ect the 50 u s ed . They serve an area of 10 counties.

The t hree teach-e r s hav e th e task of teaching Englis h to the childre n at the reservat i on . ALEXANDER M. Sulloway, program a dviser for Continu ing Educ a tion , said that this w a s the first time this pro gram has been offered for c r edi t, both for graduate and undergradu a t e work. Head Start received a Feder al grant o f S95,880 for six credit hours of courses. "They are co ns idering expanding the pro gram to include Follow thro ugh," said Su lloway. H e exp l ained that w h i 1 e Head Start served only pre schoo l c h i l d r e n, Follow throu g h covers the first three g rades o f school.

O F THE 25, only 11 re ceived professional h e 1 p. Eight of t h e other 14 showed no personality change to friends and teachers. The only modern izat ion these statistics need is in lhe suicide rate-U1e publication "Moderator" now now places it at 34 per cent of all college deaths. Why do students, fortunate enough to be in co llege, com mit suicide? One of the boys in the. Yale study murdered his girl before shooting him self one obvious reason.

T h e need to settle on an oc cupational career; and, most of all, to reassess our values, to find new meaning and direction in life, and to find our own self-identity these are the stresses and pressures on the college stu dent and at times he is over whelmed by them." The motives for suicide most likely to come from these pressures were brought out by psychologist Leif Braaten and psychiatrist C. Douglas Darli ng in working with Cornell University s tu dents. THEY SAID that these mo ti ves were likely to be: (1) a desire to "destroy himself be cause he can no longer tolerate the discrepancy between how he appears to himself and how he would like to be," (2) a need ''to punish the other person who has been so frustrating and has brought him so much hurt," (3) an urge to repent for some sin, and (4) a cry for help "Please rescue me, don't leave me alone." These are the things that cause students to attempt sui cide by many methods -barbiturates, the most common, followed by sho oting, jump ing, hanging, and wris t slash ing. Some students recognize the signs which can lead to sui cide and s eek help; oU1ers do not. SOME OF THE most ob vious signals, however, are despondency and futility, uncalled-for feelings of inade quacy and un worthiness, ex cessive use of alcoh ol , anti social behavior with frequent infraction s of school regula tions, and brooding unduly over the death of a friend or relative. What does a studen t do, then, if he recognizes these signs, or if someone sees them in another person? USF provides the Deve lopmental Center. If a student kn ow s that it exists, he has just to walk in and he say he has a problem and a psychologist is immediately available to him. Edwards says that abou t half of the students who come to the Center come in th is way. THE OTHERS ARE re ferred by the infirmary, the residence hall staff, faculty members, and other studen t s. The first people to notice a change in a student are hi s friends and his resident assis tant, who is backed by the resident instructors and coun selors, and the Deans . But what happen s when a student goes, or i s sent, to the Developmental Center? Dr. Edwards says, "We do not hav e instant analysis or any other kind of magical cure for his problems. We try to offer understanding and personal concern which is s o badly needed. "WE LEND H I M emotional support during the crisi s peri od while he regains his per spective and s t ability. We help him break down the overwhelming mass of pressures into its component parts with which he can deal more easily and effect iv e ly." These parts, usually, could hav e been taken care of be fore they were allowed to be come so depressing. Relig ious s tudent organiza tions and s choo l personnel are there for pers onal problems, Financial A id s can help with financial problems, and teachers can help with study and grade problems. ABOI:T 10 to 15 per cent of th e student body is seen at the Developmental Cen ter each year. This percentage is good, and consistent with those from other colleges and uni versities . However, every now and t hen a suicide i s commit ted, a nd USF is doing its best to prevent even these.
