High school honor pupils taste 'U'

Lecture by the noted Israeli author and film critic
Yitzhak Ben-Ner
Sponsored by:
The Department of Near Eastern tudies
and Judaic Studies Program

What do talented high school seniors
talk about when they get together in A2?
Well, if they were among the 160 in-
volved in the University's first "What
You Know Won't Hurt You" program,
yesterday, they discussed philosophy,
history, genetics, math, literature,
sociology, chemistry and computers.
The one-day program, which con-
sisted of two 90-minute seminars, a
dormitory lunch, and a guided tour of
campus, was "offered as a community
service to help meet the needs of high
school honors students who can benefit
from a University-level academic ex-
perience," explained Millard Storey,
assistant director of admissions.
SEMINARS WERE held on eight dif-
ferent topics, with a morning and after-
noon session for each.
According to Bert Hornback, the
English professor who dreamed up and
organized the event, "It's a neat thing

for bright kids to do, but it's not a
recruitment effort."
More than two hundred students from
all over the country trooped into Ann
Arbor yesterday and last Oct. 20 when
the first of the two identical programs
was offered. But not all the high school
seniors were interested in attending the
University. Roxana Issari, Okemos,
Michigan native conceded with a
giggle, "I'm here because I'm taking
the English Advanced Placement test
in the spring, and I thought this might
help me out."
ISSARI ADDED, "I like U of M, and
know it's a good school, but it's already
got one Issari." Issari's sister is a
sophomore in the school of Natural
Another participant, Jeff Parker,

from Groves High School in Bir-
mingham, wanted to "get out of the
state to go to college" but was never-
theless enthusiastic about the computer
seminar. "I really enjoyed it," he said.
"It was informative and informal"
Other students were increasingly en-
thusiastic about the University after
the program. Karl Edelman of
Rochester, Michigan said he "loved the
science program" and even gave
grudging approval to the Markley lunch
which was served to most of the
program participants. "It was O.K.,"
he said, "but I ate at M.S.U., too, and
their food was a little better."
HORNBACK SAID he came up with
the idea after hearing of a Saturday lec-
ture series offered to high school
students by the University of Chicago.

He said he remembered thinking, "
could do a lot better than that in half af
hour." He then called sixtee
professors in different fields and asked:
them to participate in a one-dj
program. Not a single professo
refused, he said.
Prof. Richard Brandt, who deliver
a lecture on "The Uses of Philosophy;'
said he felt an obligation to agree d.
participate in the program., 4
Like Hornback, Brandt said he 4
not particularly concerned that not
of the students attending his semi
were planning to attend the Universi
"They seemed like a bright and liv
lot," he said.
EACH SEMINAR had a differ
style. Hornback began his lecture
"The Uses of Literature" with an
planation of why he teaches Engli
"You love people and you love boo,
ad you loveeto tak to te peope
an o oet akt h-epelove about the books you love," he said
Karl Zinn, from the Center elm
Research on Learning and TeachinCg
began his talk on "The Computer au.
Society" by arranging the students ina
circle around him and beginning an 04
formal discussion.
And History Prof. Gerald Linderma ,
started his lecture on "Vietnam and fi*
Misuse of History,"-by quoting a Har#i
poll in which high school students rated
history as the "most irrelevant of 21'
subjects listed." Linderman, never
theless, continued, undaunted.
HIGH SCHOOL seniors who had
received Scholastic Aptitude Test
(SAT) scores of approximately 1,300 br
higher were sent invitations to atteijd~
the program earlier in the fall. Accor
ding to Hornback, particular attentien
was paid to high schools in cities like
Buffalo, Cleveland, and Chicag6
because schools there regularly se
honors students to the 'U'.
The only expense in setting up the'
seminars was the postage needed to
send out the invitations, Hornback said.'
The Admissions Office, which ced'
sponsored the event along with the
Great Books Program, the LSA Honos"
Council, and the Alumni Associatonj
paid the postage and provided the:'!
