proposal asks



The controversial "Balzhiser
Ordinance," which would ban
the "fraudulent, willful and
malicious withholding of dam-
age deposits" failed to receive
a majority and pass City'
Council last night.
The vote split along party lines
with five Republicans voting for
the motion and four, Democrats
voting against it. Six votes are
required to pass a; motion into
law. Two Republicans were not
present last night: Mayor Wendell
Hulcher and Third Ward Council-
man John Feldkamp.
The motion was named after
and endorsed by Republican may-
oral candidate Richard Balzhiser.
It has been; attacked by Demo-
crats who charge the ordinance
would be unenforceable.
The first reading of a substi-
tute ordinance proposed by Ernest'
L. Quenon (D-Second Ward) to
establish an escrow agency to hold
damage deposits was also defeated1
with five Republicans voting'
against it and four Democrats'
voting for it.
According to council rules, the
four councilmen-all Democrats-
who voted against the "Balzhiser
Ordinance" could move for recon-
sideration of the ordinance, al-
though it is not expected they will
do so.

The literary college curriculum committee yesterday re-

The code presently stipulates that six faculty members
and an unspecified number of students serve on the com-

out votes.
It is unlikely the committee's recommendations will be
considered by the faculty this year, Dean William Hays
indicated yesterday. The faculty's last regular meeting is
scheduled for April 7, and Hays said the agenda is probably
too crowded to permit discussion of the proposal.

The literary college faculty will
meet Thursday at 4 p.m. in True-
blood Aud. to consider the pro-
posal for a restructured Bachelor
of Science degree.
The special meeting was called
last week by the executive com-
mittee of the college because of
the crowded agenda expected at
the next regular faculty meeting
IApril 7.
The BS proposal was drafted by
a committee appointed at the
March 4 faculty meeting to study
a new general studies degree.
The committee's proposal recomi-
mends two alternatives for stu,
--departmental concentration In
which the department would set
its own requirements for the de-
gree; or
-a degree in general studies re-
quiring 60 hours course work in
300 level and above courses with
no concentration and no more
than 20 hours in one department.
Both options require 120 credit
hours for graduation.
The faculty will be asked to vote
separately on the department and
general studies degree options.
Students who chose the depart-
ment or "discipline" degree option
would have to consult with con-
centration advisers for approval
of their courses. However, all stu-
dents in the general studies degree
program only would need a oun.
selor's approval of their courses in
their freshman year.
The committee chose to restruc-
ture the BS degree rather than
set up an entirely new one because
the BS provided an already-exist-
ing vehicle for restructuring the
undergraduate curriculum.
"It has educational credibility,"
committee chairman Prof. Ronald
Tikofsky explained.
The requirements for admission
to the college would remain the
same no matter which degree op-
tion the student chose. He would
make his decision sometime dur-
ing his freshman year.
If the discussion of the BS de-
gree is concluded in time, the lan-
guage requirement debate will be
resumed at Thursday's meeting.

College without lectures?
This is just the dream of literary college
Dean 'William Hays who says he would like
to see the creation of an experimental col-
lege with a library of tapes students could
use at their own pace. Thus the faculty
would be free for more individual con-
sultation with students.
But even the first steps toward wide-
spread use of such automated instructional
techniques seem far off. Hays' dream would
require a good deal of costly experimenta-
tion before imulementation would be nos-

not uncommon at the University. The
