Humphrey Asks Nuclear Ban

Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (D-
Minn) proposed a nuclear-free
zone covering all of Latin America
in the concluding 'session of the
arms control symposium.
He said that this region is
"ripe" for such an agreement,
which "would prevent the spread
of the nuclear arms race to the
Western Hemisphere."
He explained that the Latin
Americans' concern over nuclear
war, intensified by the Cuban
crisis, would tend to make them
willing to establish such a zone.
Progress Needed
Noting the need for social pro-
gress in the area, Humprhey
warned, "there is not a Latin
American Country that can af-
ford a Colt .45. Yet, with the
exception of Costa Rica, each is
busily engaged in buying arms."
He pointed out that money
spent on military hardware was
used at the expense of social-
improvement programs, which
need all the support they can
musteradue to Latin America's
growing population.
If arms control does not ac-
company economic-aid programs,

such as the Alliance for Progress,
they are likely to fail in the long
run, Humphrey predicted.
He turned next to the problems
of implementing such an arms
control program.
First, Humphrey recommended,
the United States should tact-
fully seek opinions on the matter,
to find as broad a backing as
Second, he insisted that Cuba
must participate in such a pro-
gram. "The threat of aggression
makes it all the more necessary
that Cuba be included," he as-
Third, the United States should
see to it that an agreement in-
cludes adequate provision for veri-
fication, including on-site inspec-
tion, he continued. The United
States might aid by supplying
inspection personnel.
Humphrey suggested that this
nuclear-free zone-and, possibly,
more complete arms control for
the region-might be arranged in
negotiations conducted through

This "gap between the aspira-
tion and the reality" was reported
by Erma Muckenhirn, Grad, in a
five-month study of public senti-
ments toward education in Niger-
Miss Muckenhirn presented a
questionnaire to over 3,000 boys
and girls in both rural and urban
areas. These students attended
either a secondary grammar school
or a modern secondary school
which tends to emphasize techni-
cal studies.
From their questionnaires and
in interviews with some students,
she found that most students from
both types of schools expected to
go to a university. They expected
to attend either a Nigerian 'uni-
versity or one in Great Britain or
Miss Muckenhirn noted that at
one time it was the goal of a uni-
versity graduate to become a civil
servant. However, because of the
increase of graduates, there are
now less places available in gov-
ernment jobs, and university grad-
uates are -forced to take teaching
jobs at the secondary level. Most
secondary schools had employed
teachers who were graduates of a
teacher training school.
Miss Muckenhirn also discussed,
the problems in educating women.
Since the son will carry on the
family name, his education will
bring honor to the family. But
when the daughter marries, she
becomes the property of another
family, and her education is a bad
However, there is a trend to-
ward more government aid for
building girls' schools, she noted.

He expressed the hope that the
Latin-American zone would only
be a start, setting the pace for
the other world areas to do the
same. While granting thevalue
of seeking arms reduction by the
present nuclear nations, Hum-
phrey said that disarmament
should also be pursued in these
areas of smaller nations.
Benefit Man
"This approach may not pre-
vent World War III, or even a
confrontation of the major powers,
but it will bring benefits to hu-
manity," he remarked.
Turning to the effects of this
type of agreement on the United
States, Humphrey noted that
American use of the Panama Ca-
nal Zone as a military base, and
its shipping of weapons through
the canal would have to be re-
Humphrey moved on to .con-
sider the effects of worldwide dis-
armament on America's economy.
He noted that the United States
has already disarmed twice this
century-after each world war-

aggression, but "totalitarian coun-
tries have never experienced dis-

Of Program
In Teaching
In programmed learning, it is
the quality of the program which
is significant, not the teaching
machine, members of the new
Center for Research in Teaching
and Learning, and the Center for
Programmed Learning for Busi-
ness emphasized yesterday.
Speaking before the graduate
business school faculty, Prof. San-
ford C. Erickson, director of the
Center for Research on Learning
and Teaching, explained that the
big question for the Center, estab-
lished this fall, is how to establish
contact and begin to influence the
faculty. The Center came into ex-
istence on faculty suggestion and
is meant to improve its teaching,
The Center wants to do research
on teaching methods in the class-
room, rather than an artificial
laboratory situation.
Revise Courses
Prof. Ericksen noted that the
Center would like to work with an
instructor who would revamp his
course for programmed learning,
with the Center paying for the
first year of operation and the de-
partment or school for the rest.
"As teachers we are in the posi-
tion to manipulate the variables
by which a student learns. The
Center is interested in the pro-
cess of learning, rather than that
of teaching, in finding out how a'
student is affected in his think-
ing," Prof. Ericksen said.
Motivates Student
Prof. Ericksen noted that the
"contribution of the live instruc-
tor to programmed learning is the
providing of motivation by sup-
plying the reward for learning."
He noted that writing a program
was like writing a textbook but
more difficult, requiring much
time and revision.
Geary A. Rummler of the Cen-
ter for Programmed Learning for
Business gave specific instances of
the use programmed learning
could be put to, in teaching busi-
ness and o t h e r professional
courses, in teaching business itself
and in teaching how to construct
a program for programmed learn-

Student Government Council
passed a motion favoring addi-
tional income tax exemptions for
college students at its last meet-
ing, Dec. 12.
The resolution, introduced by
Council President Steven Stock-
meyer, '63, cites the rising costs
of education, and the growing deed
for more educated citizens as rea-
sons for the exemptions.
The proposal calls for exemp-
tions on a graded scale for both'
full-time and part-time students,
from $3,000 a year for full-time
married students with children, to
$600 a year for part-time unmar-
ried students.

The gift agreement provides for
the establishment of a separate
fund to be know as the Clyde A.

Vinter, Sarri Examine

Youth Grou
Professors Robert Vinter and
Rosemary Sarri of the social work
school are presently involved in a
study of "Group Treatment Strat-
egies in the School and Court."
This problem, one of 12 sub-
projects dealing with delinquency,
is financed under a master grant
from the Health, Education and
Welfare Department. Work was
begun last July.
The project's aim is to develop
group treatment strategies aimed
at ameliorating the social forces
that directly produce delinquency.
Presently the project is assess-
ing group - treatment programs
currently being used in several
southeastern Michigan schools.
These programs are attempting to
improve "deviant students" aca-
demic performance and relations
with peers and adults.
Specially trained school person-
nel are meeting at frequent in-
tervals with 5-10 children in
groups, which are serving both as
a context and instrument for
change. The processes involve both
direct influence by the adult and
group influences.
The purpose of the research is
to identify factors in the child's
experiences in the family, school,
peer groups and, most important-
ly, in the treatment group which
contribute to relative stability or
change in his deviant patterns of
behavior: A general evaluation
then will be possible to determine

what is crucial in the operation
and success of such a program.
The results of the research will
be included in a volume on group
treatment theory, presently in
preparation, in a monograph and
in the curriculum design of the
social work school.
