The state House of Representatives placed its approved version
of Gov. George Romney's fiscal reform package before the Senate
yesterday, but talks quickly bogged down.
With the deadline closing in, early yesterday morning, the House
had passed 62-44 a compromise tax package worked out in bi-partisan

In a midnight session, twenty Democratic votes were finally

SGC presdent, Bruce Kahn, '68,

from SGC's budget.
Workshop Planned
Several students have already
volunteered to serve as counselors,
and a workshop in the problem of
draft deferment and conscientious
objection is planned for early
August. The workshop set up in
conjunction with local Friend's

as a retreat.
In addition to giving legal in-
formation to conscientious object-
ors, the service will deal with these
people in a manner established by

In other counseling services,
counselors have found it necessary
to determine if someone is sin-
cerely a conscientious objector by
asking them questions such as "so
you think you could never kill?"
Avoid the Draft
The service also hopes to pro-
vide information on other ways
to avoid being drafted for active
duty in addition to conscientious
Some problems of student de-i
ferment from the draft are pres-
ently handled through the Univer-
sity's office of certification. The
main functions of this office, how-
ever, are to give information upon
student request to local draft
boards on whether someone has
student status or not.
Larry Katz, an administrative
assistant in the office of regis-
tration and records, said, "We
sometimes have students request-

ing information oft various armed
services but we generally refer
them to people we consider more
knowledgeable in the field such as
recruiters. Our attitude toward
students requesting information on
conscientious objection is open.
We'll show them any legal infor-
mation we have, but this is on
the fringe of our area-we don't
consider it our main job."
Katz commented that he was
"all for" any service that could
provide additional information on
the draft, but that he was con-
cerned about the ability of such
on organization to keep their in-
formation as up to date as the
armed services themselves.

A NEW DENTAL SC$OOL BUILDING, currently under construction, is scheduled for completion
in 1970. A special committee within the school's faculty is drawing up new curriculum plans to be
implemented when the new building is completed.
Dental School Faculty Studies
Newv Adaptable Curriculum



By The Associated Press
MORE THAN 125 freshmen and transfer students will enter
the University. this fall on Opportunity Award scholarships, ac-
cording to John Chavis, coordinator for special projects in the
Office of Academic Affairs.
The awards cover fees and living costs for first-year students.
In addition, students in extreme financial needs receive grants-
in aid for continued study at the University. Assistance is also
given to the students in finding part-time work during the school
year and full-time employment in the summer.
Beginning its fourth year, the Opportunity Awards program
operates with the aid of high school principals, counselors and
civil rights groups in seeking candidates with intellectual potential,
but are unable to meet educational costs. The program is financed
through University funds, private donations and a federal grant.
*~ *
formed group of graduate students in the social sciences at the
University, is planning a series of conferences and workshops to
be held here Aug. 11-13. According to Glenn Harvey, conference
coordinator, the object of the conference is "to provide fresh
ideas on the improvement of graduate education in the U.S. and
a critical assessment of social science endeavors generally, and to
stimulate organization among graduate students for these pur-
poses." Representatives from the University of Chicago, Harvard,
Brandeis, the University of California at Berkeley and the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin will also participate in the conference.

"We want to create a curri-
culum that well be more flex-
ible, more adaptable to change, so
that we can keep pace with new
innovations in the sciences, and
allow our students more freedom
to do in-depth study in their
chosen area, Robert E. Doerr, as-
sociate dean of the dental school,
said yesterday.
He said that this is the working
philosophy of a dental college fac-
ulty committee which is presently
revising the school's curriculum.
Doerr says the new curriculum
will take effect with the comple-
tion of new facilities for the
college under construction on
North University Street.uComplet-
ion is scheduled for the beginning
of 1970.
Clinical Practices
Planned changes include an
earlier introduction of students to
clinical practices, increased emph-
asis on diagnosis and preventive
dental care, individualization of
learning and increased free and
elective time.
This will be accomplished in
part by providing students with
the opportunity to utilize self-
study devices .
One of the most basic changes
planned is a "verticalization" of
studies in pre-clinical and clin-
ical sciences. At present, students
spend the first two years of the
four-year dental curriculum lear-
ning basic theory. They first be-
gin caring for patients in their
third year, when they learn clin-
ical practices.
Under the new curriculum, stu-
dents will have their first con-
tact with patients in their first
year, and teaching of theory will
continue until graduation.
In addition, creation of a ninth
semester between the third and
fourth year of study will enable

have a chance to do original re-
search, participate in field trips,
perfect his clinical techniques, or
elect liberal arts courses.
The teaching of technical pro-
cedures is also being revamped.
Doerr said many clinical tech-
niques are presently being taught
as semester-long courses meeting
one hour a week. He noted some
students could learn these tech-
niques in five hours time. Under
the new curriculum, students will
learn them individually, at their
own pace.
Such individualized study will
be implemented by 50 self-teach-
ing units to be located in the
basement of the new dental build-
The units will be 4x7 foot cub-

computer terminal. A student
practicing a technique in the car-
rel will be monitored by the com-
puter, and a teletype response sys-
temin n the carrel will tell the
student when he makes a mistake.
"In the past," Doerr said, "we
have had to gear our teaching of
such techniques to the middle or
average student. The quicker stu-
dents grew bored, and the slower
ones were constantly overchalleng-
ed. With this individualized teach-
ing method, the problem will be

President Johnson signed into
law yesterday a three-year exten-
sion of the Teachers Corps Pro-
gram, just in time to stem a tide
of volunteer resignations, in anti-
cipation of failure to renew the
program. It is part of the Presi-,
dent's war on poverty.
The origin of the idea for the
Corns has been attributed to sev-

teachers qualified to teach in
urban slums and poverty pockets.
The site Johnson chose for sign-
ing the bill was a large job train-
ing center which sprang up in an
area racked by Philadelphia's
1964 racial riots and became one
of the most successful efforts of
its kind in the nation.
Congress had only completed
action on the measure Wednes-

Another $7.5 million was ap-
proved in October, barely enough
to keep the Teacher Corps going
through June, 1967.
Since then Congress has ap-
priated $3.8 million more to main-
tain the present program and to
start a few more projects, with
only the authorization bill then
remaining to be passed.
It moved closer to renewal last

a meeting with Senate leaders to
make sure that this bill and other
key legislation got to the floor
before the recess. This was the
latest in a long series of legisla-
tive problems which the Teacher
Corps faced.
Many Congressmen view the
Corps as another example of in-
creasing federal control over edu-
cation, particularly in the elemen-
