Students View Shorter Term

head, and little time if any for
wracking to take, and count less
of the total course grade. None of
these was true for me," another
A sophomore labeled it "unfair
to expect students to adequately
review and take a comprehensive
exam in four to six courses with-
in the period of one week."
Because University officials,
hearing such complaints, are ser-
ously considering some sort of
class-free "reading period" before
finals, The Daily's questionnaire
sought reactions /on this specific
Opinions ranged from sopho-
more Barbara Laas' assertion that
the period is "essential," to the
prediction that "no one would
bother to 'read' anyway," ad-
vanced by Thomas G. Hackett, '65.
Object to Reading Period
There were other objections ad-
vanced by opponents of the read-
ing period.' "I would not favor
shortening the semester again,"
one sophomore remarked, while
Barbara A. Hoim, '64, insisted such
a period "would increase pressure
at final exams and place unwar-
ranted emphasis on the import-
ance of finals."
The questionnaire's reading
period proposal provoked several
other suggestions for juggling the
calendar to relieve pressures:
-A sophomore proposed that,
instead of reducing class meetings
to provide the reading period, "the
third week of Christmas vacation
could be cut out to provide the
time. A three week vacation is
nice, but I would much rather
4ave a two-week one, and a read-
ing period before filals."
Asks Abolition of Finals
-"A not too far-fetched plan
would be to abolish finals alto-
gether. The last week of classes
would test only the last one third
of the semester's work and only
count that much in the overall
grade for any course," Ronald Le-
Beau, '66, suggested.
-The number of class meetings
should be reduced, a senior wrote.
"This gained time would be put to
better use by making the exam it-
self longer and by reducing the
number of exams scheduled each
day. Some people prefer to study
for one test after they have gotten
another out of the way."
-Another senior said that
"thanksgiving recess should be
extended to include the entire
week of Thanksgiving, thus allow-
ing time to complete larger proj-
ects such as papers and lab re-
Suggests Discussion Period
-Instead of a reading period,
Evelyn Falkenstein, '66, suggested,
the University should "continue
classes, without the presentation
of new material, as a discussion
(Continued from Page 1)
He cited an earlier statement
by the MSU Board of Trustees
"It is understood that this board
has no intention to organize the
beginning of a medical school un-
til after the schools at the Uni-
versity and Wayne are fully de-
veloped, but feels that at the time
it' is decided to instigate a third
publicly supported medical school
in Michigan, it should be a part
of Michigan State University."
A two-year, non-clinical pro-'
gram in human medicine is sched-
uled to begin at MSU in the fall
of 1965. This is the program term-
ed by some critics "a foot in the
door" for an eventual four-year

period. Such a period would round
out the independent study of the
final-exam period by giving the
student an opportunity to air
questions that arise from the final
study and co-ordination of the
course. The entire course would
then be co-ordinated, so that the
final exam need not be weighted
on thelast part of the semester.
Attendance during this period
would be voluntary; those having
nothing to discuss would not need
Pressures and grades aside, the
question remains: what did tri-
mester do to education itself? The
survey's respondents, as a group,
felt it had little effect. But a few
added gloomy remarks.
"This was the first semester at
the University in which I studied
merely for exams and not because
I enjoyed learning. I resent assem-
bly-line educational methods," one
No Time for Contemplation
A sophomore, though indicating
a mild preference for the new sys-
tem, claimed "there was not
enough time to think about what
you were cramming into your
creative thinking or projects."
Rubert G. Pachella, '66, report-
ed feeling "a great indifference to-
ward my work at the end of the
semester, going into finals" be-
cause there was "so much work in
the last two weeks."
Charles Kacir, '65A&D, warned
that the trimester may create
problems for future student gen-
enations. "There are students, I
for one, who probably would not
have survived the period of ad-
justment to the University if it
had been on the new calendar." 1
Kabaker, however, pointed to
the other side of this coin. "Pretty
soon the present upperclassmen
will be gone and there will be left
only 'trimester babies'." These
people, he argued, will go through
