Collegiate Press Service
CHICAGO-A $1 million effort'
to improve U.S. college chemistry
courses-particularly for the non-
chemistry major-went into full
operation this fall.
Most universities are already do-
ing a good job with the students
who will make their careers in the
field, acording to Dr. L. Carroll
King, chairman of the newly or-
ganized Advisory Council on Col-
lege Chemistry.
rThehbiggestnproblem in the
area," he explains, "is how to de-
vise a good chemistry course for
the students going into the arts,
the humanities, journalism, edu-
cation or the social sciences-"
Grant Finances Development
The Council, with headquarters
at Stanford University, will fi-
nance the development of new ed-
ucational aids and curricula on
college campuses across the coun-
try under a two-year grant from
the National Science Foundation.
The usual offering to the non-
chemistry major has been the
4 "survey course." But, King says,
"'The survey course has never
really worked. Its general short-
coming is that it teaches theory
as fact. The whole character of
scientific knowledgehand the
means scientists use to solve prob-
lems have been neglected."
As an alternative, King suggests
that a specially designed "general
science" chemistry class might be
offered to non-majors. Such a
course would be designed to ex-
plain to the students what scienceF
is and has accomplished, how it
operates and why it is doing what
it does.
Explains Nature, Content
The course would explain some-
thing of the nature of science as
well as its content to the non-
science students who will be future
legislators, historians, artisks and

last night the United States still hopes for "a more considered
reply" from the Communists to U.S. proposals for scaling down
or ending the war in Viet Nam. The Communists have publicly
rejected U.S. proposals.
Rusk also made a new bid for discussion of U.S. proposals
with the Communists, saying that if there is uncertainty about
their meaning "the way to clear it up is through discussion."
NEW YORK-THE STOCK MARKET roared ahead yester-
day to its biggest single day's gain in almost three years.
Some Wall Streeters said the surge in the final trading hours

John T. Connor that there are no present indications economic

The State Legislature will in-

Rep.. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit),
chairman of the House Subcom-
mittee on Higher Education, says
he plans to consult the state at-
torney general's office on the mat-
ter. Rep. Faxon, who also plans
to question University officials
here on the matter today, explains
.that "The University may need a
special resolution from the Leg-
islature to build this housing
mb unit."
the The special resolution may be
required because the University is
serving as a tax shield for the
fraternity, Faxon explains.
"There is a serious question of
whether the University is aiding
a conspiracy for some citizens to
defraud the government of income
tax," says Rep. George F. Mont-
gomery (D-Detroit), a member of
the subcommittee.
