Trow prefers remedial treat-
ment besides the offering of free
education. "Young people need to
realize that out in the world
standards of excellence are re-
quired," he says. "They should be
taught so that they can meet
these standards, not only in
school but on the job."
The professor would establish
the modern equivalent of the ap-
prentice system. He contends that
thousands of jobs need to be done
which no one is doing. "People in
business, industry and the pro-
fessions could make good use of
assistants. High pay is not essen-
tial if there is a future."
Trow also advocates the estab-
lishment of public programs along
the line of a civilian peace corps.
A renovation program for public
lands would be the best bargain
for training these students, Trow
says. Part of their work-time
could be devoted to education.
These students-workers "would
obtain the training and incentive,
they do not have."

An international science group,
chaired by Prof. James V. Neel of
the Medical School, has recom-
mended that primitive communi-
ties be studied--before it's tooI
The group, sponsored under the,
auspices of the World Health Or--I
ganization, warns that many
primitive cultures "face imme-I
diate disintegration and in some
instances, loss of physical iden-
tity, in the face of advancing
Neel, who is chairman of the
department ofrhuman genetics,
has made several field trips to
study primitive Indians in Brazil.t
The value of primitive study is
that these groups "offer both in
size and level of economy the1
closest approximation one cant
find to the conditions under which
man has lived for the greater partt
of his existence," the report states.-
The report. further recommendsr
that tribes in the Arctic, South
America, Africa, Asia and Aus-r
tralia be studied.t
The groups were chosen "be-c
cause they are still hunter-gath-L
erers or primitive agriculturists1
and have not, as far as is known,s
been significantly affected by for-X
eign gene penetration in recentI
times; in many instances, theyc

are groups that are in grave dan-
ger of cultural extinction or ser-
ious decline in numbers," the
report says.
Among the problems which
these studies - might clarify, the
report mentions these:
--The genetic component in
mortality and fertility differences;
-The biological consequences
of inbreeding. Such populations
also provide opportunities for ex-
amining the biological conse-
quences of formal kinship and
marriage systems;;
-The disease pattern of rela-
tively undisturbed primitive pop-
-The possible evolutionary im-
plication of differing disease pat-
terns in males and females;
-The biological relationship of
the group under study to neigh-
boring groups or to those more
remote in time or space;
-The effects of contact with
more advanced cultures, in par-
ticular the effect on gene fre-
quencies, the emergence of new
disease patterns, the possible re-
lationship of these to genetic con-
stitution, and the alteration in
physical measurements and in
physiological and biochemical

But that's exactly what Univer-
sity researchers are doing. They're
examining the self-instructional
course in Mandarin-Chinese de-
veloped here. It is about to be
tested among volunteer high
school and college s t u d e n t s
around the country.
The teaching machine - its
effectiveness and shortcomings-
is being checked over. If its early
promises are realized, the student
will be able to advance faster than
conventionally-taught students,
working at his own speed in his
own time. And all without a tutor.
Conducting the test, under a
$34,100 U.S. Office of Education
contract, are Prof. Paul Denling-
er and John R. Peterson, a sen-
ior student who also is one of the
developers of the Chinese course.
