ExCoillentalolege Seminar -PT---
Seeks Higher Education Value

Wi

By RITA DERSHOWITZ
Collegiate Press Service
SAN FRANCISCO - Ten stu-
dents cluster around a seminar,
table in a classroom. One man
among them must be the profes-
sor, but only because he is about
20 years older than anyone else
in the room He does nothing to
direct the discussion.
At this third meeting of the
class, officially titled Seminar in
Higher Education, the members
are still arguing with each other
over what they should be doing.
They finally decide that a class-
room and class meeting times areI
artificial ways of learning any-
way; they will work with each
other independently and come to-I
gether when they have something
to tell the others.
A Free University course some-
where? Not exactly. It's a regular
course offering of the education
department of San Francisco State!
College, but it was organized be-
cause of the Experimental Col-
tege, a student-initiated education-
al reform movement at State.
Members of the seminar are all
leaders in the Experimental Col-
lege, receiving credit for the course
from the education department.
"I find it surprising," said Prof.
Richard Axen, the seminar's teach-
er, "that people who are com-
mitted to a theory of non-author-
itarian learning, and who have
had experience with that method,
still cannot take the freedom of
this course and use it to do what
they want."
Paradox
Professor Axen's seminar points
up a paradox of the Experimental

College, which operates on the as- students have the responsibility.
sumption of student responsibility The result is that courses we de-

for education. At the same time,
however, the very existence of such
a seminar in a"college department,
indicates the extent to which stu-
dents have raised important ques-
tions about the quality of learn-
ing and teaching to an entire
campus.
Initiated three semesters ago by1
the Associated Students, the Ex-
perimental College currently en-
rolls over 1000 students out of
18,360 at State, all of them com-
muters. It offers about 70 courses,
taught by students, faculty mem-1
bers and outside specialists. Cred-
it is available in some courses for
those who wish it through proced-
ures in the regular College that
allow faculty members to grantl
credit for independent study. 1

velop here, and prove can work,
are being incorporated into the
regular curriculum."
A non-protest stance is prob-
ably the key to the EC's distine-
tion from other "free university"
movements. Although many of its
organizers have been involved in
civil rights or radical political ac-
tivities, they have not created a
new sounding-board for the Left.
Nor do they define themselves as
opposition to an enemy institu-
tion.
"We're trying to work in a real
situation," Vozick explained. "You
have to define politics by what
you want to build, not just what
Iyou oppose. The game is not be-
Itween the bad guys and the good
guys, but it involves a bad struc-

LIBERTY CAR WASH.

By RODNEY ANGOVE
Associated Press Staff Writer
PARIS - In non-Communist
Asia, only one-ninth of a book is
published per inhabitant per year
compared to 7.7 in Britain-that's
a rough idea of the "book gap" of
the underdeveloped countries.
The gap is even wider in Africa,
according to statistics of the
United Nations Education, Scien-
tific and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO). South America is not
quite so far behind.
If imported books are counted
for the same countries of Asia-

they amount to 25 per cent of local
production - the consumption
would be one book per person
every six years.
The "book gap" is measured
mostly in terms of the number of
titles published, an approximate
figure in most cases.
At any rate,the.UNESCO sta-
tistics tend to show the "book
gap' as closely interwoven into
the circle of illiteracy and pov-
erty. The countries with the low-
est paper consumption generally
have the highest illiteracy rate
and the lowest school enrollment.
But the local publishing industry
forms an important element in
the struggle to raise the educa-
tional level and the standard of
living.
In Asia, local printers can sup-
ply only about one-third of the
current demand for textbooks.
They will surely find themselves
in even tighter straits as educa-
tional efforts spread further
through ever increasing popula-
tions.
Luckily, some form of the pub-
lishing business exists already in
most countries. The problem is to
expand and modernize existing
facilities, and widen distribution.
The UNESCO study on Asia is
most detailed yet on book publish-
ing in underdeveloped countries.
It was prepared for a Tokyo
meeting in May of experts from
20 countries. Similar meetings are
planned for other regions, the
next being Africa in 1968.
Communist China was not in-
eluded in the study because it is
sot a member of UNESCO. But it
was believed that book produc-
tion theie was much higher than
the Asian average-possibly high
enough to include - the country
amongths world's top 10 book
producers.
The eyperts in Tokyo agreed
that a "(rash program" is needed
to increase production of textbooks
for primary education and liter-
acy courses. The program was
not defieed but each country was
asked to draw up a book develop-
ment plan, and set up textbook
and graphic arts organizations.
The local printing facilities of
Asia are generally creaking, un-
der-utilized shops set up decades
ago to l nt pamphlets and hand
