In 1967 Jack Gourman
decided to publish a manual
which critically evaluated
universities and colleges in
the United States.
He decided on this
enterprise because he be-
lieved that the conventional
accrediting documents were
inadequate and that they
presented faulty evalua-
tions of institutions of
higher learning.
In his initial survey he
found that nearly 1,000
universities and colleges
which had previously re-
ceived various forms of aca-
demic accreditation were

simply not up to minimal
standards.
For the last 16 years
Gourman has been pub-
lishing his own manuals
relating to quality uni-
versity education and the
contents are both explo-
sive and instructive.
Parents and students
concerned about selecting
the proper university
environment should obtain
Gourman's rating of both
undergraduate and
graduate programs. They
can be obtained from Na-
tional Education
Standards, 1 Wilshire
Bldg., 624 S. Grand Ave.,
Suite 1210, Los Angeles,
Calif. 90017.
One of the most extraor-
dinary revelations in the
Gournman reports is that
there are perhaps not more
than 150 universities and
colleges in North America
which stand up to the exact-
ing criteria which
Gourman imposes in his
selection procedure. Those
criteria include research
and teaching profiles of the
faculty, student accessibil-
ity, campus facilities and li-
brary holdings.
With regard to under-
graduate programs Gour-
man judges Cornell to be
first in agriculture, the
University of Michigan first
in nursing, New York Uni-
versity first in physical
therapy, Pennsylvania first
in accounting and MIT first
in computer science.
MIT also leads the list
in electrical engineering,
while Yale ranks number
one in philosophy. Har-
vard is first in music,
Russian and Spanish.
The University of
California at Berkeley is
number one in botany
and genetics.
As far as graduate and
professional programs are
concerned, Harvard ranks
first in architecture,
Columbia in comparative

IDF Officers
Criticize U.S.
Marine Methods

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Senior officers of the Israel
Defense Forces who took
courses at Marine war col-
leges in the United States
are critical of the way the
Marines are taught to adapt
to combat situations, the
newspaper Maariv reported
last week.
According to Maariv, the
Israeli officers say the
Marine command lacked
"vision and imagination"
and was too prone to "go by
the book." That basic atti-
tude did not allow the
Marines to adapt quickly to
specific circumstances not
spelled out in military
textbooks, the IDF officers
claimed.
They suggested that the
Marines tended to rely too
heavily on massive air or
artillery support to "soften
up" the enemy, a tactic that
could not be applied to their
mission or situation in Be-
frut.

literature, and, Yale in
French studies. Harvard is
first in philosophy and
Spanish. The number one
law school is Harvard, fol-
lowed by U-M, Yale, the
University of Chicago and
University of California,
Berkeley.
