Last spring when the faculty of the literary college was
discussing general aspects of the then new residential college
proposal, a number of faculty members were persistent in raising
various questions and making reservations about it.
Now that a year has passed and the plans for the college
have been further developed by its faculty planning committee
and students advisory committee, some of the original faculty
questioners have been sought out once more.
Although these faculty members heavily emphasize that they
support experimentation and the residential college idea in
general, a few questions and reservations do indeed seem to
hold over from last spring.
Although several of the questioners declined to comment
at this time, one direct remark was that "the residential college
general, a few questions and reservations do indeed seem to
is no solution to expansion."
Another faculty member said in reference to. both the resi-
dential college and the trimester that "this year it still seems
doubtful to start on another major scheme when we have hardly
digested this one," meaning trimester. He added that "more of
us were doubtful last year. Some of us felt we ought to do one,
see where we stood, then do the other."
Perhaps representative of, and one of the most articulate
of the questioners sought out, is Prof. John A. Dorr of the
geology department. In a recent interview, Dorr, who is in his third
year on the Senate Student Relations Subcommittee, says that
one of the main reasons for establishing a residential college
was the hope that its small size might improve the learning
experience available for the student.
However, Dorr maintains, he is not convinced that large
size and quality are incompatible; the literary college is at present
both large and good.
A second reason for establishing the residential college, Dorr
said, was that it would allow for experimentation in education.
"It is not my impression that the literary college is inhibited
from experimentation," he said. Depending on the level of financial
support, the present, large literary college could also experiment
with the smaller classes, outstanding' staff and complex facilities
proposed for the residential college, he said.
quality in the literary college is to provide more money to another
A third point of the five that Dorr spelled out was the
question of interchangeability of staff between the residential
college and the literary college. Last spring, he said, it was
proposed that the residential college faculty would teach on a
rotating basis, with the approval of the parent departments.
In other words, a member of the faculty would teach at the
residential college for perhaps one to three years and then return
to the parent literary college department.
Dorr said the problem in this proposal lies in whether the
residential college teachers could be automatically accepted back
into their respective parent departments. In all departments,

Causes Failure of Attempted Coup
By Thao, Phat, Catholic Insurgents
SAIGON W)-South Viet Nam's latest attempted coup was de-
clared officially ended last night with the capitulation of one of
its top military leaders.
At 10:45 a.m. today (Saigon time) former Brig. Gen. Lam Van
Phat announced "we have capitulated," while inside the general
staff headquarters, Col. Pham Ngor Thad, leader of the coup, made
the surrender agreement.
Five minutes earlier the personal bodyguard of Phat and Col.
Huynh Tan Ton had turned themselves over to forces loyal to Gen.
Nguyen Khanh. The last rebel holdouts inside the general staff
