together. New and without insti-
tutional inertia, the college is the
topic of much of the RC's "mean-
ingful dialogues."
Teaching is usually the center
of controversy, with instructors
admitting their methods, de-
serve re-evaluation. Says one, "I'm
a new teacher, and, you know, I
don't really know how people get
educated, so I keep trying new
things, I keep experimenting."
Besides attempting to transform
courses into discussions, teachers
try abdicating the "formal distant
authority" r o 1 e traditionally
ascribed to them. Professors have
offices in East Quad's basement,
where students come freely to chat.
Resident fellows inte dorms are
"pals, not policemen," according
to one RC student.
And Robertson, more a father
figure than a distant bureaucrat,
enjoys a respected and amicable
Sposition. Students occupy his of
fice without political motives and
talk with the dean or his gregari-
ous secretary Mrs. Razelle Brooks
-the college's mother-in-resi-
dence. No administrative office on
campus rivals it.
Criticism, too, is handled in a
distinctive manner. When a dispute
in literary college departments
surfaces, it signals serious differ-I
ences among professors, one RC
professor explains. But when some
facet of RC is criticized, there are
no such implications. Criticism
and re-evaluation are the name of
the game. It goes on all the time,
aiming toward improving the col-
lege and the education it offers.
But when you're new, and you
dare admit you really don't knows
how people are educated, you can
afford a few mistakes.X

The new constitution, like the
old, calls for congress meetings
at least once every five years. It
provides for party membership for
workers, peasants, "revolutionary

THE TRIAL of Sirhan Bishara Sirhan went to the jury
Earlier in the day, the state rested its case against the assassin
of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy by asking the jury to return a verdict of
first degree murder. The defense has asked for a verdict of second-
degree murder, arguing that Sirhan was mentally unhinged when he
shot Kennedy last June.
The jury may return any one of four verdicts including aquittal
or second-degree manslaughter. In a 44-minute statement, Superior
Court Judge Herbert Walker cautioned the jurors against considering
the subject of penalty in their deliberations, and instructed them to
reach a verdict without being influenced by pity, passion, or prejudice.

ALEXANDER DUBCEK, chief of the Czechoslovak Com-
munist party, will reportedly confer with Soviet leaders this week.
The meeting will take place prior to Thursday's crucial session
of the party's Central Committee. The committee meeting is expected
to be the scene of a showdown between supporters of Dubcek's reform
program and pro-Soviet hard-liners.
Meanwhile, Czechoslovakia was scheduled to participate yesterday
in the latest Warsaw pact military maneuvers.
Prague's agreement to participate has been linked by some ob-
servers to the mystery surrounding a government announcement
Saturday-which was withdrawn two hours later-that more Soviet
troops would be sent to Czechoslovakia.
ISRAEL AND EGYPT engaged yesterday in both air and
land fighting.
In the eighth consecutive day of gun dueling across the Suez
Canal, the Israelis reported one soldier killed and three wounded.
The Egyptians in turn claimed one civilian was wounded and several
civilian homes were hit by artillery.
Both sides acknowledged that one Egyptian MIG had been
crippled in a dogfight with Israeli jets. The Egyptians charged that
Israeli planes had violated their airspace over Port Saia, which has
recently been used by the Soviet fleet.

resents nine million workers.
The British government also ap-
proved a tight new budget yester-
day. Wilson was understood to
view both the tough budget and
the strike controls as musts in his
drive to restore Britain's economic
health and bring its foreign pay-
ments out of the red. Informants
say the prime minister argued
forcefully in an afternoon Cabinet
session for action now on the
strike controls.
The sources said the precise for-
mula for the strike controls is to
be worked out in the next three
weeks and presented to Parliament
for approval by summer. It had
originally been expected that the
proposals would be introduced no
earlier than next year.

ly touched off outcry from labor.

LSA. curriculum panel
approves RC experiment

The literary college curriculum
committee yesterday approved the
establishment of an experimental
student-run course in the Resi-
dential College.
The course, entitled "Communi-
cation, will be offered as a one
term experiment this fall. There
is a limit of 30 students who will
be allowed to take the course as
a substitution for one of the two
required "core" courses. However,
an unlimited number may take it
as an elective.
The RC Representative Assem-
bly-the college's student-faculty
decision-making body - approved
the implementation of the course
last week. However, all new
courses that offer college credit
require curriculum committee ap-
According to the students who
planned the course, it is designed
to give students an alternative to
the required curriculum and to
instill in them a quality of
"independent scholarship." The
course will be taught by three or
four student leaders who will be
guided by three faculty advisers.
One unit of RC credit will be

ful completion of the course. In
addition, written evaluations of
the students will besubmitted by
their student teachers. The fac-
ulty advisers will write evaluations
for the teachers.
The student leaders will be pri-
marily juniors. Some sophomores
are also expected to teach. They
will be selected "on the basis of
their being well-read, having
depth of knowldege and ability to
relate to other students," explain-
ed !Lynn Eden, '71, an originator
of the course.
Prof. Carl Cohen of the philoso-
phy department, an ex-officio
member of the curriculum com-
mittee and associate director of
the RC, supported the experiment.
In other action, the committee
approved a request from the po-
litical science department to offer
all 300 and 400 level political
science courses for four credits,
instead of three. All courses in
the department will now be worth
four hours. 100 level political
science courses are presently
worth four credit hours.
In addition the committee ap-
proved a proposal from the Eng-
lish department to teach English
123 and 325 for four hours.
