Emerging social problems have

he said, and the "rapidity of pres-

research. into human needs and;
ways of meeting them.

whose concern is a face-to-face

"Their distinction lies in their
concern with the whole commu-

and agencies."
Objectivep Incorporated
Public services or specialized
activity organizations have incor-
porated, into them many objec-
tives of the settlement program,
Cohen cited. With the rising
standards of health, income and
education plus state and national
legislation helping the least secure

redevelopment, Cohen said. Chief-
ly poverty is a serious problem
when earnings have been inter-
rupted by sickness, unemployment

Two main problems are faced
by the settlements in the future,
Cohen contended, these being: 1)
many neighborhood leaders have
moved from the central city to
the suburbs and 2) normal flow

ge Credits
For the second consecutive year,
the University of Detroit is offer-
ing college credits via television
The program, financed by a Ford
Foundation grant and called "TV
College," is including qualified
Detroit high school seniors for the
first time.
"TV College" presents regularly
scheduled lectures by members of
the University of Detroit faculty
on the UHF television station,
WTVS. Students enrolled in
courses must supplement the half-
hour lectures with on-campus dis-
cussions and quizzes once a week.
The experiment in education be-
gan last September and proved to
be "very successful" with chiefly
adult participants, according to
the project's director, Prof. Francis
College Courses Included
He said the program for "su-
perior" high school students in-
cludes two freshman college
courses, English I1 (rhetoric 'and
composition) and Mathematics 25
(analytic geometry and calculus).
The high school students partici-
pating in the "TV College" were
chosen through placement tests
and approvals from their high
school principals. The students
also must have a television set
which receives the broadcasts from
WTVS and be enrolled in special
advanced high school subjects.
Other subjects' offered adults
eligible to take college freshman
courses include elementary Span-
ish, an economics survey and
American history before 1865. An
advanced survey of English litera-
ture is offered to students with
the proper prerequisites.
Those taking courses for credit
enroll with the University of De-
troit and pay regular tuition fees.
Any credit earned in courses is
"normally transferrable" to other
schools, Prof. Arlinghaus said.
Evidence Supports Theory
Evidence supports the theory
that television classes 'are much
larger than the actual number of
enrolled students indicates. There
is no way to count the number, of
casual viewers who tune into the
lectures, but Prof. Arlinghaus
noted that the sale of textbooks
far exceeds the enrollment totals
for the classes.
University of Detroit adminis-
trators regard the "TV College"
educational experiment as a pos-
sible aid in. providing educations
for the great many students who
are expected to enroll in colleges
in the next few years.
Television courses, supplemented
by periodic visits to the campus for
tests and discussions, could pro-
vide all freshman and sophomore
credits, the administrators agree.
