The reason for eliminating one
vice-president is that until now
the first vice-president's duties
have been quite limited.
Duties Defined
Article IV, Section III, defines
the duties of the chairman of
public relations, saying that she
shall: 1) Be responsible for all
news coverage regarding Panhel;
2) Be responsible for all Panhel
publications; 3) Serve as chair-
man of the Public Relations Com-
mittee; 4) Be chairman of elec-
tions; 5) Be liaison between the
University Panhel and other col-
legiate Panhelleiics; 6) File a
yearly budget with the treasurer.
Article V, Section II, deletes the
International Committee from
Panhel structure. The duties of
the chairman - of this committee

will be assigned to the scholarship
chairman who will work in co-
operation with the Women's
League International Committee.
Delete Reference
An amendment to Article XIII,
Section I, deletes reference to
Junior Panhellenic Association.
Formerly the article had insured
that there would be a Junior Pan-
hel election each year, but recent
revisions in the Junior Panhel
constitution have made this pro-
vision unnecessary.
A further proposal, which pass-
ed unanimously, changed the
wording "Board of Delegates" to
"President's Board" when refer-
ring to Panhel. This is because of
the recent constitutional amend-
ment which makes a sorority's
president its official delegate to
Panhel.

Committee,
Board, Meet
On Honesty
By SANDRA JOHNSON
The literary college steering
committee met yesterday with the
literary college administrative
board to discuss cheating.
"No student should cheat, and,
there is no justification for cheat-
ing," James Sevier, '61, literary
college steering committee chair-.
man, emphasized.
"Anyone caught cheating should
be disciplined--perhaps even more
severely than they are at present."
Seder pointed out that there are
three conditions htat usually exist
in a course where extensive cheat-
ing occurs: there is comparatively
little interest in the course; parts
of the course are clearly of little
value to the individual student;
and cheating is thought by stu-
dents to have gone on in the
course in the past.
Upon this basis the steering
committee made three recom-
mendations:
1) More attention should be
given to impressing upon fresh-
man, either during orientation
week or in one of their introduc-
tory courses, that cheating .s
wrong ad does not comply with
the high academic standards of
the University.,
2) The various colleges should
make instructors aware of the
problem and make it clear to them
that if they do not act against
cheating its existence will very
likely grow.
3) The college administration
should become somewhat sensitive
to courses where extensive cheat-
ing, is thought to exist, so that
measures may be taken to combat
it, because the cheating may be a
symptom that the course is struc-
tured poorly.

Welbourne Notes Wide Use
Of Television in Education

Tonight at 8:00
Newman Club

By WILFRED ROY
'Televised education has prob-
ably had a more phenomenal
spread than any other education-
al innovation," Lyndell Wel-
bourne, co-ordinator of staff serv-
ices for the Midwestern Program
of Airborne Television, said re-
cently.
He cited taped television classes
which, "if combined with the
teachers' aid system, would pro-
vide a stop-gap to financial and
manpower shortages in education-
al fields today."
The television faculty has an
entire staff of technical and edu-
cational advisers "to ensure as far
as possible that the classes will ap-
peal to all students."
The courses are difficult enough
to stimulate the advanced stu-
dent, while aimed at the general
wider level of comprehension and
still able to pick up those who are
having trouble," Welbourne add-
ed.
Teacher Aids
Teachers' aids, non-profession-
als who do all secretarial and
other work outside of actual
teaching (finding lost overcoats,
correcting objective tests and tak-
ing roll) to enable the faculty to
devote full time to teaching, are
r a p i d ly becoming adopted
throughout the nation. Their sal-
aries are usually less than half
that of a teacher, he said.
Television classes can be made
larger than at present, Welbourne
asserted, by perhaps combining
three classes into two, releasing the
third teacher to fields where he
is needed. The greater burden im-
posed on the teachers of the en-
larged classes would be alleviated
by hiring two aides.
This would cut salary costs
slightly for the same number of

Today is St. Patrick's Day.
It was many, many years ago'
that #n energetic young Christian
missionary drove the snakes once
and for all from the Emerald Isle
-or so the legend runs.
History does not confirm it, but
it, is still possible. At any rate, the
missionary Patrick was born the
son of a landed deacon, a Roman
citizen, somewhere on the isle of
Britain, possibly near present-day
Pembroke, in 385 A.D.
At the age of 16, he was cap-
tured by invading Irish marauders
and enslaved as a herdsman on the
slopes of Slemish and Croungh-
patrick in Ireland for some six
years.
Escapes Divinely
He managed to escape with di-
vine guidance, and he fled to Gaul
(France) where he entered the
monastary at Lerins to receive the
tonsure:
In 413, he returned to Britain
to live with relatives. During this
time he had a divine revelation
which instructed him to return to
Ireland and make it Christian.
So hie spent the next 12 years
in study at Auxerre (in Gaul), and
in '431 when St. Palladius, the
first Irish bishop, died, Pope Ger-
manus I named Patrick to replace
him.
Zealous Campaign
The zealous missionary embarked
on an aggressive campaign. Land-
ing in the winter at Saul, he
travelled to Tara in the spring

and, in defiance of the pagan
priests, kindled the Easter fire on
Slane, a near-by hill.,
This action commanded respect,
for the priests did not molest him,
and soon he was travelling about
Ireland with a small band of fol-
lowers converting the various
tribes to Christianity.
In 441 he travelled to Rome and
received the pallium and other
treasures . from Pope St. Leo I.
Four years later he returned to
Ireland, enshrining there the
treasures of the pope.
Successful Mission
All through his life, Patrick was
the most successful in his mis-
sions.

... TV's phenomenal spread
students and only take two-thirds
of the room previously required.
The school-room classes would
become 'follow ups' to the lecture
with the individual teachers clar-
ifying and adding to the TV tape
material, similar to the present
lecture-recitation method.
The major,.drawback has been
in scheduling, Welbourne said.
Grade school teachers can shift
their routine to accommodate the
broadcast times, but in high
schools, with the students each on
a different schedule moving from
one room to another, and the
schools themselves haying differ-
ent class times and lengths, it "is
giving many people ulcers."

completed in Indiana at this time
which will serve six states, in-

mately 5,000,000 students later
this year. Thirty-seven states will
then be using some form of tele-
vision education, Welbourne not-
ed.

vision program on this campus

AXIOMATIC THEORY:
Linguists Use Math Concept'

Grammatical structure can be
explicitly described using mathe-
matical concepts, Robert Lee of
the International Business Ma-
chine Company said yesterday.
Nineteenth century methods of
deriving theorems from a finite
set of symbols and axioms are
applicable in analyzing the "set
of utterances" which make up lan-
guage.
For example, the. infinite set
of integers can be "generated" by
a set of finite symbols and cer-
tain operations or "rules" con-
cerning the symbols.
In the same way, characterizing
a set of sentences in a language
under particular rules can yield
all the utterances in the language,
plus the correct structural descrip-
tion of the utterances.
One of the evident requirements

of an utterance in the English
language is that is be pronounce-
able by English speaking peoples,
Lee explained.
Additional restrictions are that
combinations of the utterances
and the sequences of these com-
binations are also pronounceable.
Furthermore, the sequences of
words must be understood.
However, the sentence "Can
computer think?" is a reasonable
sequence of words although it is
still not correct. Another rule
must be added to control "agree-
ment," and to yield "Can com-
puters think?"
Additional Axioms
Sentences such as "They were
stripping wires" and "They were
humming wires" will necessitate
additional axioms concerned with
"grouping" the parts of the sen-
tence. There would have to be
some differentiation between
"verb plus gerund" and "verb"
combinations. Such a rule would:
be more complicated by ambigu-
ous sentences such as "Theyr were
burning wires."
A rule of grammatical descrip-
tion must account for the differ-
ences in the sentences "I shot a
man in the street-I shot a man
in the arm-I shot a man in the
air," Lee said.
There are certain restrictions on
the type of rules, Lee said. Any
rule which generates a "non-ut-
terance" would be invalid, as
would any operation which yield-

an attempt "to say in a more ex-
plicit way what a student has to
learn to know a language," he
said.
one traditional method for
studying languages, especially in-
flected classical languages like
Latin and Greek, has been the
formulation of rules needed to
make up other words. This method
is characterized by systems of af-
fixes that are attached to roots.
A more important method of
teaching has been "example and
analogy" in which sample sen-
tences are used as examples, and
"the imagination of the mature
reader" is utilized to create new
examples. In such a method, "the
contribution of the reader far
outweighs the description of the
example itself."
