College Doors Slowly Close

Grew Given Unity Prize Band Chosen
For Manuscript on Italy In Exchange

Life-Long Education Urged
For 'Ever-Changing' Society

The doors to state universities
and land-grant institutions which
once opened wide to the nation's
graduating high school students
are slowly closing, according to
a recent Office of Institutional
Research survey of the 97 mem-
bers of the Association of State
Universities and Land-Grant C01-.
Traditionally, the purpose of
many of these institutions has
been to provide opportunity to all
who might benefit by a college
education. Now they must sift
through applicants and take only
those with better than average
Because they simply do not
have space to accommodate the
numbers of high school graduates
applying for admission, some in-
stitutions find they have no room
at all for marginal students, while
others must turn down or screen
"C" students.
Some institutions, however, face
the cruel necessity of having to
refuse admission to qualified stu-
Of the 86 institutions that re-
sponded to the survey, 21 said
they had always been selective to
some degree and 59 said they had
originally admitted all graduates
of accredited high schools within
their states. Of these 59, however,
only 22 have been able to hold
to a relative open-door policy and
20 have become selective in the
past five years.
Even among those institutions
which still try to admit all gradu-
ates of accredited high schools
within their states, the door is not
wide open. The University of Min-
nesota's General College, whose
basic admission requirement was
formerly high school graduation,
will begin next fall to limit en-
rollment to 4,000 freshmen and
sophomores. Higher academic re-
quirements have prevailed for
some time at the university's col-
lege of liberal arts.
The Universities of Nebraska
and Kansas report they use "dis-
suasive counseling" with marginal
students. At Ohio's public univer-
sities, marginal students-or those
graduating in the lower third of
their high school classes-may not
enter in the fall, term, but must
enter during another part of the
academic year.
'C' Average
The University of Maryland re-
quires a "C" average in college
preparatory courses for the final
two years of high school. Those
below this academic level may still
qualify for admission by success-
ful work in a tailored precollege
summer course.
Iowa State University requires
a special test and a personal in-
terview for students in the lower
half oftheir high school gradu-
ating class.
The University of Idaho re-
quires graduates in the lower
quarter of their high school class
to enter in the second semester,
unless they have high college
board scores.
Some institutions require only
that the applicant be in the upper
75 per cent of his graduating
class. These institutions include
Arizona State University, Univer-
sity of Arizona, University of Mis-
sissippi and Oklahoma State Uni-
versity. Several noted that only a
handful below that level seek a
higher education.
Top 40
Florida State University admits
only those in the upper 40 per
cent on state-wide tests. The Uni-
versity of Wisconsin requires only
"evidence of ability to do satis-
factory work."
For out-of-state students, all
the institutions responding to the


question said their entrance re-
quirements were higher-in some3
cases very much higher.-
The University of California at
Berkeley (which accepts only the
top 121/2 per cent of in-state stu-
dents) requires a 3.4 average in
required courses for out-of-state
applicants. UCLA accepts only
those out-of-state students who
rank in the upper 1/16th of their
The University of Delaware is
"very restrictive" in dealing with
out-of-state applications, the Uni-
versity of Connecticut takes only
200 of 4000 applicants, the Univer-
sity of New Hampshire limits its
out-of-state enrollment to those
of "special academic achieve-
ment," the University of Wash-
ington is "highly selective," and
the University of Michigan takes
only the top 15 per cent from out-
Women Lose
Although there are no specific
differences in the entrance re-
quirements for men and women,
many institutions pointed out that
housing for women students is
limited. This automatically makes
for greater selectivity and higher
standards of admission.
About one-third of the report-
ing institutions indicated they
probably will be forced to become
more selective in the future-par-

ticularly for out-of-state students.

Tests Helpt
A number of institutions will
admit a "C" student only on the
basis of a good test score.
At the University of Nevada, a1
"D" student may register for a
reduced class schedule to demon-"
strate his ability. At New Mexico
State University, the director of
admissions may accept a poor-
risk student if there is evidence1
of maturity and a desire to study.
Almost unanimously, the insti-
tutions replying to the survey said
they gave more emphasis to high
school grades than to test scores
in determining admissions.
The Universities of Connecticut,
Delaware and Florida said test
scores and high school grades werej
given equal weight.a

To commemorate the centennial
of Italian unification, in 1961 the
Italian government set up a com-
mittee of Italian historians to
award the prize.
The manuscript, published by
the Princeton University Press,
concerns the principal political
and propaganda organizations
during the period of unification.
Grew said he was very pleased
to receive the award. "Italian uni-
fication is now recognized as a
subject of international study,"

The University of Michigan Jazz
Band will leave Jan. 23 for a
State Department-sponsored tour
of Latin America under the Cul-
tural Presentations Program.
It will be the first opportunity
for a jazz band to be involved in
the exchange program, although
the program has been in operation
for 10 years.
Bruce Fisher, '65BAd, the band's
conductor and creator, says he
hopes to "present American music
to people of Latin America and
to present ' typical American stu-
dents." He feels the concerts will
appeal especially to students and
youth of Latin America.
The tour will include stops in
Guatemala, British Honduras,
Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama,
Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, Vene-
zuela, Surinam, British Guiana,
Trinidad, Tobago, Haiti and Ja-
Besides giving concerts, the jazz
band will hold clinics and panels
in which they will discuss music
and demonstrate different aspects
of their playing, such as impro-

The college graduate-to-be can
expect to make at least seven job
changes in his working life.
He can also expect half of what
he is now learning to be obsolete
in five years if he is studyingI
physics, in ten years if he is
studying engineering, and in fif-
teen years if he is studying law.
Furthermore, in some of the
physical sciences, half of what he
will need to know in the next
ten years has yet to be discovered.
This picture of rapidly changing
career requirements was outlined
recently by Paul Sheats, dean of
extension at the University of
California, and Seymour Wolf-

bein, a Labor Department em-
ployment expert.
According to Wolfbein, any stu-
dent who specializes early in the
face of such a fluid occupational
outlook is making a serious mis-
take. Advising students to delay
their majors as long as possible,
Wolfbein urged electing a wide
variety of courses in order to be
able to cope with a variety of jobs.
The main occupational chal-
lenge for those entering the pro-
fessions will be in keeping up to
date with new developments, he
Echoing Wolfbein's Views, Sheats
claimed that life-long education
will be needed to avoid obsoles-
cence in the professions.
