Economic
Relationship
By RICHARD KRAUT
A new project in comparative
education will attempt to deter-
mine the relationship between a
nation's economy and its means
and scope of education.
The project, which was develop-
ed by Prof. Claude Eggersten and
Quirico Samonte, was discussed at
the third Faculty Research Semi-
nar of the School of Education.
The study is entitled, "The Al-
location of Educational Resources
to the Population: An Interna-
tional Comparison of Selected
Factors."
It will investigate the theory
that "increases in the viability of
societies is reciprocally and di-
rectly related to the increases in
the productive involvement of the
population in formal education."
Viability of Societies
"The viability of societies,"
means the potential for growth;
"reciprocally and directly related,"
means a definite interrelationship;
and "involvement in formal edu-
cation," means the provision of
educational opportunities.
For example, the project might
hope to confirm that the greater
the per capita energy consump-
tion, the greater the proportion
of women involved in formal edu-
cation.
Other indexes of the level and
nature of education in the coun-
try are the percentage of the
population enrolled in schools; the
percentage of children of parents
of different occupation enrolled
in schools. and the percentage of
persons given scientific and pro-
fessional training.
Measures of Viability
To measure the viability of the
society, the project will take into
account per capita income, per
capita electrical energy consump-
tion, life expectancy and rate of
saving and investment.
The accuracy of the statistics
obtained would be altered by such
variables as value systems of par-
ticular societies. Therefore, the
analysis will take into account
such control variables as age and
sex composition of the population,
urban-rural composition of the
population, religion, political sys-
tem and organization of the
schools.
The nations which this study in-
tends to compare were selected on
the'basis of availability ofedata,
representation of culture areas and
representation of various levels of
economic development.
They are Canada, Ceylon, Den-
mark, Great Britain, Iran, Japan.
Liberia, Malay, Mexico, Nigeria,
Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Po-
land, the United States, Benezuela,
West Germany and Yugoslavia.
In the report Leo Ferning, edi-
tor of Survey of Education for
UNESCO, said "I believe that
your approach represents a break-
through for comparative education
and that the results are going to
be of importance to international
cooperation in education."
The study will help the United
States as well as the new nations,
and students who need research
training in the field.
Details of the comparative edu-
cation survey were revealed by
Prof. Eggersten and Samonte at
a seminar last Monday night.
U.S. May Issue
Savings Bonds

For Education
The U.S. Treasury may offer
the public an opportunity to save
money for college by issuing a new
"education savings bond."
Such a bond would yield some-
what more than the 3% per cent
now returned by Series E and H
bonds held to maturity. The edu-
cation bonds would probably be
similar to regular Series E bonds
-discount securities sold for less
than their future redemption
value.
If held by a family with a son
or daughter attending an accred-
ited college or university, the bonds
could be redeemed for more than
a regular E bond held equally as
long.
One problem under study is how
to determine that an individual
is entitled to the higher interest.

FBI Agent
Sees Broad
Red Activity
The Communist Party is waging
a broad campaign to influence
students, Cartha D. DeLoach, as-
sistant director of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, said re-
cently.
He announced that the FBI is
probing the Progressive Youth
Organizing Committee. This was
formed thirteen years ago to "pave
the way for greater Communist
influence among American young
people," including "broad seg-
ments of our college students."
The party is circulating a
monthly newspaper called New
Horizons for Youth which De-
Loach called Communist controll-
ed despite its lack of a Communist
label.
He, claimed that the editor of
the paper, Daniel Rubin, is the
national youth director of the par-
ty although he does not use the
title in his newspaper or campus
work.
During a tour of the Midwest
last fall, Rubin "appeared both of-
ficially and unofficially," before
student groups and "papered a
number of campuses with Com-
munist literature," he said.
Rubin appeared at the Univer-
sity during his tour.

FLETCHER HALL-A unique institution among men's residence
halls, it "combines the freedom of apartment houses, the facilities
of the residence halls, and congeniality of the fraternity," under
its room only living system.
Fletcher Hall Provides
Men with UniqueHome

the

Wizardry .. .

By ISAAC ADALEMO
"Life at Fletcher Hallis a com-
bination of the three aspects of
housing within the University,"
house president Robert Wall, '64,
says.
"It combines the freedom of
apartment houses, the facilities of
the University residence halls, and
the congeniality of the fraterni-
ties."
Last year the first set of men
residents moved into Fletcher Hall
which before then served as a
women's residence hall. Most of
the students moved in because of
the degree of freedom Fletcher
Hall gives them, they explain.
They wil be able to make personal
and effective schedules which will
not be interrupted by rigid meal
periods. Some cannot afford the
cost of living in the residence
halls and find Fletcher Hall a
more reasonable way of living.
Another category of students in
this unit are athletes who find it
convenient to live here because of
its nearness to the athletic facili-
ties.
Fletcher Hall residents have all
services and facilities which stu-
dents in residence halls in gen-
eral have except that meals are
not provided and no cooking is al-
lowed.
There are twenty-five triple
bedrooms and five singles with
study rooms attached to each bed-
room. The residents feel that this
arrangement is better than the
system in the other men's resi-
dence halls. There are lounging,
laundry, and recreational facilities
on the basement floor.
Residents voted to be associate
members of West Quadrangle and
are represented on the quad coun-
cil by house president Wall. The
undergraduate students draw aca-
demic advice from the graduate
residents-some of them teaching
Essay Contest
Deadline Set
All present and former Univer-
sity students have a chance to
win an $1,800 award for the best
essay on "Autonomy vs. Responsi-
bility: New Syntheses."
Deadline for entries in the
Broomfield Essay Competition has
been set on October 1, Prof. Luke
K. Cooperrider of the Law School,
chairman of the prize committee,
has announced.
Set up by the late Archibald
Broomfield, the essay contest is
designed to stimulate thinking on
subjects related to "good citizen-
ship."
Autonomy, in the prize commit-
tee's opinion, is "the tendency for
conduct to respond only to the
will and desires of the actor, to be
free, without strings."
Responsibility is the "tendency
for conduct to be inhibited in some
way, or directed toward other than
personal ends, because the actor
is 'one among many,' not alone in
the universe."
The attainment of an adequate
adjustment between these two
factors seems to be central prob-
lem for all societies, the commit-
tee feels.

felows--who make up another 20
per cent of the residents. The unit
has a relatively greater share of
foreign students than any other'
unit on the campus-12 of them
from eight different countries.
