department says. "Everything
happens so fast and changes soj
quickly it is hard to keep it all
up."
One of Antioch's most publicized
innovations in education is its3
freshmen program. Under the sys-
tem no demands for class attend-
ance are placed upon the new
student. Except for language
courses, classes are unstructured
discussion groups open to all mem-
bers of the campus.
No Attendance
When the program began several
years ago, freshmen did not attend
the lectures at all, much to the
anger of the professors and to
the disappointment of those who
planned the curricula. As a result,
professors are now asked to "eval-
uate" students who choose to at-
tend their lecture series. No exams
as such are given, however, and
there are no grades.
With the exception of language
courses, the first year program
contains no topics which can be
considered as prerequisites for
future studies. Lecture topics in-
clude "Technistructure and the
New Industrial State" or -Jesus
and Social Revolution".
Classes at Antioch may meet on

Using federal funds, the $3.6
million project would provide low-
income housing for 200 needy
families on 20 acres of scattered
sites throughout the city. Each
site would house from 15 to 40
families in one of two-story apart-
ment dwellings.
The project was originally plan-
ned as six building locations hous-
ing all 200 families. Public press-I
ure, however, has been so strong-
ly opposed to that density that the
Housing Commission settled on
more scattered sites and smaller
buildings. According to commis-

require the city to ask for more
