EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first installment of what we hope will
become a regular Sunday feature of The Daily. Its continuation, however,
depends on the use students have for it. If you have questions you
can't get answered elsewhere, call The Daily at 764-0553 weekdays be-
tween 3 and 5 p.m. or address your queries to 420 Maynard St., Ann
Can I participate in spring commencement this yearif I still
have six more credits to fulfill in the spring half -term?-J.S.
Yes, you may participate in the commencement exercise, al-
though the literary college dean's office notes that you won't
get your degree until you complete your credit requirements.
I have just moved to Ann Arbor and am enrolled as a full-
time student. I'm married, over 21 and not supported by my
parents. I'll be a student here until April, 1967, will work in Ann
Arbor next summer and attend the University again next fall.
By that time, I'll have lived in Michigan for one year. Will I be
able to register next fall as a Michigan resident and pay only
in-state tuition?-F.J.
Sorry about that. The Registrar's office says you must be
over 21 and live in Michigan while not enrolled in the University
for six months before you can qualify for residence status. Your
four months next summer won't be enough.
I've received a 1-A classification from my draft board. How
can I get the University's help to get my student deferment
You probably forgot to fill out the Selective Service form
distributed during registration. Call the University's Selective
Service counselor at 764-1575 for the form and further help with
your specific case. Current guidelines say you will get a defer-
4 ment if you scored above 70 on the recent draft deferment exams
or rank above either the middle of your freshman class, the two-
thirds mark of your sophomore class or the three-quarter mark
of your junior class. Graduate students must have scored at least
80 on the draft exam or have ranked in the top quarter of their
class in their senior undergraduate year.
If you're a freshman from Michigan, don't worry. All in-state
freshmen are 1-A until next fall, because the state Selective
Service says they must have a year of school to establish their
right to a deferment. But they also say you won't be draft-
eligible until the end of your first college year.
All this assumes you're a full-time student, that is, one who'll
complete the 120 hours required for graduation within four years.
The absolute minimum for full-time status is 12 credits per
trimester. You should average 30 credit hours for each full
calendar year to play it safe.
Can someone not in the Nursing School take the nursing
anatomy course during the summer trimester?-N.S.
Theoretically it's possible, with the permission of the in-
structor. However when several students not in nursing tried it
last summer, they were turned down because the class was already
filled just with nursing students. To find out about the situation
this year, contact Prof.. Russell Woodburne, anatomy department
chairman, in the spring. His office is in 1006 East Medical Bldg.
and his phone number is 764-4359.

Sees Future
In Education
Lehmann Predicts
Increase Emphasis
On Auto-Instructioi
With an increasing emphasis on
technological changes and the
liberalizing of attitudes on indi-
vidual rights, the disciplines in-
volved in educating America's
youth will undergo significant
changes in the future, :according
to Charles F. Lehmann, assistant
dean of the school of education.
Lehmann predicted that the
non-verbal approach to teaching
and auto-instruction, such as in-
dependent s t u d e n t laboratory
studies, will become more preva-
lent in the years ahead.
Such devices as closed circuit
television, language laboratories,
audio-visual centers, computer-
teachers that check student re-
sponses to questions and type-
writers which will not allow spell-
ing errors to be recorded are al-
ready on the educational market
and are indicative of future trends,
Lehmann said. Inevitably, classes
of all kinds will make use of these
techniques, he added.
This does not mean, said Leh-
mann, that instructors will be eli-
minated from the classrooms.
What these new innovations doj
indicate is that the idea of a school
being just a collection of students
in a classroom is archaic. There
will always be a need for inter-
change between students and in-
structors. However, under the pro-
jected educational system, the in-
structor will be more than a teach-
ing machine; he will function as
an expert consultant in his par-
ticular subject area, Lehmann
Many of these changes, said
Lehmann, will result in an exten-
sion of the educational years on
both ends. Earlier elementary
schools and a growth in commun-
ity colleges will stretch the school
ages from 3 to 20, before one en-
ters a university.I
A diversity of types of highers
education institutions is necessary
to present the technological edu-
cational devices of today and theI
future to all students, regardless
of their class standings.

In the private sector, under the

-Scott observed-a bit whist-

pean countries (Denmark, for ex-
ample) because the governments
maintain centralized, comprehen-

felt to be very favorable towards
fraternities, being an active alum-
ni of a local chapter himself.
Feldkamp's office is responsible
for enforcing the conduct code
for students living in University-
approved housing, which includes
fraternity houses. There has been
talk, according to one OSA
source, to abolish University-wide
regulations 'and let each 'housing
unit set up his own standards of
conduct. Such a move would give
great freedom to the fraternities,
loosening administration author-
The University's new policy of
assuming ownership of fraternity
houses in order to help the fra-
ternity raise money is viewed as
a good move by Van House.
Housing Problem
"Housing is the biggest problem
facing fraternities. Last year al-
though there were 2,900 men in
local chapters only 1,400 were liv-
ing in houses. I'm really excited
about the University's apparent
willingness to help us out here"
But with University ownership
of houses, presently proposed only
for one ,professional fraternity,
comes increased power over the
fraternity. Upon assuming owner-
ship of a house, the University
will grant only short-term jeases
to the house, for periods of five
years or less.
University Control
Thus, in effect, the University
maintains control of the frater-
nity, for theoretically it can re-
fuse to renew a fraternity's lease
and thereby force it to vacate its
Feldkamp calls such University
action highly unlikely since "we
couldn't really pull that kind of
stuff." He does concede that his
office would have such power, but
claims they have it now since
they can refuse to approve a fra-
ternity house because of basic
housing violations.
Van House is enthusiastic about
the support he gets from the ad-
ministration. "If Cutler were re-
ally out to hurt the system he
would have to do it through Feld-
kamp or Sells, and both have
been really good to us."
Feldkamp emphasizes the im-
portance of fraternity housing,
which provides what he calls "an
almost ideal" way of living. "The
University could never afford to
build a group of small living units
comparable~ to the fraternity
houses, and it seems as if the
houses, with 40-60 men, are about
the best size to have as a unit."
Thus it is important, in Feld-
kamp's opinion, to keep the sys-
tem strong and viable. One move
which he advocates is the institu-
tion of resident advisers in some
fraternities. One house is current-
ly experimenting, with this, but
Feldkamp is quick to say that not
all houses need such a person.
Van House is also pleased with
