Was the SA Betrayed? Sad to report, the student body seems to have been betrayed by some of its elected representatives in the University Senate . At the last Senate meeting, a reso lution to recommend the abol ishment of the trimester system was voted upon. The trimester lost by one vote. And only two of the five student senators were there to vote. Absent were Harvey Frank, Kar en Klein, and Bob Blunt. Frank was at a student affairs commit tee meeting. Klein has not been i n school for trimester III-A and Student Association President John Reber has said that he is going to allow her to keep her post be cause "she'll only miss two meet ings." Blunt just didn't make it. Both Blunt and Reber have been working furiously to forestall an attempt to reduce student repre sentation in the Senate. They have a r g u e d that five senp.tors are needed to "protect the interests of the students." A recent survey of students in dicated an overwhelming prefer ence for the trimester system. The student senators are elected to rep resent those students in the work ings of the university. Here was the chance for these senators to protect the students. Only two of them did, though all are known to favor the trimester. The image of the student asso ciation in the eyes of the faculty may have been severely damaged by this apparent lack of interest. We offer no solutions to the prob lem. John Reber and the senators themselves will have to repair the damage. But we do think that some steps should be taken immediately to avoid having student senators miss meetings. There should be some system of alternates, in case a senator must miss a meeting for any reason. And we favor a rule covering "leaves of absence" for vacation . ing student senators. Another Chance, Loren We were a little startled to learn of the appointment of Loren South wick as secretary of finance of the Student Association . Last year, Southwick ran unop posed for Treasurer of the SA and won the post . He did not produce required work, however, failing to make reports or assume any of his official duties, according to Ron Johnson, then vice-president of the SA and other SA officials. Im p e a c h m e n t proceedings were planned but were dropped when Southwick fell below the necessary 2.0 grade point ratio requirement and resigned the post. We are not one to harbor grudges One Small Voice nor are we unwilling to give sec ond chances, but we hope that Southwick realizes that this is a second chance and that he will lay the skeleton to rest by ful filling his duties as Secretary of Finance. Ed. Note: In the May 27 issue of the Campus Edition it was re ported that Southwick was appointed to the Finance Committee but the article failed to mention that Southwick was named chairman. of the committee and thus became secretary of finance, suc ceeding Dave Dukes who is not at tending USF this trimester.

Democracy Said Thwarted If Educational Lives Cut By ROBERT SHANNON Professor of Education "LET ME IN and then lo ck the doo r." "Free me from slavery so I can go and buy a slave for myself." "Now that I'm through the college program, let's tigh t en up on admissions, c a u s e we've been letting some weak prospects get into college." People who are advocating retention and extension of the present schemes for selective admission to college wouldn' t admit themselves if their own credentials came up for review with another name attached to the admissions materials. BASED ON the flimsy non sense of a few questionable test items, coupled with an equally ridiculous collection of high school grades, we subvert democracy by sitting on a throne and lopping off the educational lives of most high school graduates w it h one Art Books To Honor Artist The Jack Wilson Fund, honor ing a Tampa artist who died in April, has been es ta blished to purchase a memorial art book coUection at USF, Wilson's paintings won awards at the Carnegie International Museum , Baltimore Museum of Art, Georgia Centennial Ex position, New York Artists ' Gal lery and Art Alliance in Phila delphia . grand slice at an arbitrary percentile the magic cut off. We are now so successful at i nforming the population of the proprie t y of our behavior that f ew contest the practice. Thr oughout our his tory we have cherished the principle of education for all the chil dren of all the people. Per haps the principle should have included "Education of all the children of all the peo ple as long as they fit my measurement schemes." OUR SOCIETY is education conscious. People want to go to school. With the frequently emphasized alternative as " education or cat astrophe," the current policies for selec tive admission to college be comes subversive procedures for tlie United States and for the world. We cannot be so presumptu ous as to claim that we can say which persons are satis factory risks for college entrance. John Kennedy and Woodrow Wilson could not be admitted to Harvard today be cause p r e s e n t admissions "standards" have been raised subs t antially since their col lege days. Teachers of Winston Church hill regarded him as a poor student. They surely wouldn ' t recommend him as a candi date for college study. A study at the Un iversity of Kansas traced the graduates from that university who would not be admitted according to present day " selective admissions" procedures. THEY FOUND many phy sicians, successful mothers, Amateur Radio Club Will Soon Be on the Air The USF Amateur Radio Club has moved from the UC basement to the fourth floor of the physics building. A club station will begin operation as soon as maintenance finishes copstruction on the room. The faculty and club mem bers have donated equipment for the station -a Hallicraf ters HQ 120 receiver, a U . S. government surplus transmitter and a Gonset 6 Meter communicator . Anyone interested in join ing t h is club may contact Bob Kilpatrick, RB 6 or Milton Bowen, PH 142. His largest one-man show was held at USF in 1963. His personal papers have been donated Tennis Courts to the Special Collections depart-ment of the USF library. Are Reserved Contributions to the fund may be made through the USF For Clinics Foundation. teachers and outstanding busi nessmen who today would find the college gates slammed in their faces because test scores, high school grades, and teacher testimonials would identify them as "poor col lege material." A recent study of 1,072 lead ers in business, education and government listed in " Who's Who in America," found that a majority of them had av eraged C plus to B in col lege grades. Four per cent were D-minus students. Surely the grade enthusiasts (the most deplorable condition in colleges ) would point out that these people should not have been admitted to college. They will probably explain this con dition by way of the idiotic notion of the "normal curve " -the m ost ab normal thing ever de v ised. Selective admission to col lege is essential. The only ac ceptable concept is one based on the personal decision of the individual as to whether or not he regards college as a good thing for him to experi ence . LET'S STOP playing Rus sian Roulette with people's lives. "Bang you 're in you're out " must be abolished. Setting up a plan for selec tive admissions because of economic necessity is simply avoiding the problem by way of a quick-cure . People are no t expendable items to be accepted or rejected . Debating selective admis sions is an unnecessary en deavoJJ. The essential activity is to focus our discussion on what happens i n the education al process. We must roncen trate our attention on quality education-not quality admis sions practices. Students Examine UN Woes Admitting Hoipolloi Seen As Crowding Out 'Buyers' By J. A. BATTLE Dean of the College of Education A MOST DISTINGUISHED philosopher once said that unless the stu d ent learns the teacher has not taught. Then he made an analogy between teaching and selling by stating that when there is no buying there is no selling and when there is no learn ing there is no teaching. If one subscribes both to th i s t h eory of learning and teaching and to the idea that university teachers should be paid more, as I do, although I subscribe a little mor e wholeheartedly to the latter than to the forme r, then one is logically forced to believe i n s e I e c t i v e universi ty ad missions . IT IS TOUGH enough now for us universi ty professors to find a ready supply of eager "buyers" among our upper-strata student body t o keep us feeling that we have Educators Asked To Argue Issue The Campus E d i t 1 on asked two USF faculty members distinguished in the field of education to argue the issue pro a n d con. Dean Jean A. Battle of t h e College of Education took the positi ve side, Dr. Robert Shannon, professor of education, the negative. Letters expressing views of students or faculty are invited on ibis or other provocative issues. Sports Wrap-Up found the formula for suc cess. If the hoi polloi were to be admitted to our clo istered halls the amoun t of "buying" might go to naught and then where would we u niversity professors be when we h ave to justify our salary rai s es? Why, we might be abou t in the same fix as Arthur Miller's Willy in "The Death of a S ales man": "And when they s tart not smiling back-that's a n earthquake. And then you get yourself a couple of spots o n your hat, and you're finished. Nobody dast blame this m an. A salesman is got to dream, boy. It comes with t h e terri tory .
