Experts to discus

By JOHN SINKEVICS
A group of three outside experts on
introductory English composition will
come to the University in May at the
request of the English department to
discuss the department's new freshman
composition program.
Department Chairman Jay Robinson
said the conference was called because
"we have made some changes in our
program, and in supervising our
teaching fellows. We want them to ad-
vise and consult us about our new
program."
THE THREE English "consultants"
are Edward Corbett from Ohio State
University, Martin Steinmann from the
University of Minnesota, and Richard
Ohmenn from Wesleyan University.
English TA Richard Brengle said Oh-
mann, whose book English in America:

A Radical View of the Profession
criticized the teaching of English in
post-secondary institutions, will
probably provide any "hard core"
criticism of the program.
Robinson said the May 24-26 con-
ference will include those people "who
are directly involved with the
program." The new English Com-
position Board (ECB) instituted some
changes in teaching formats last Sep-
tember by putting greater emphasis on
writing skills, and the program will be
in full swing for the 1979 Fall term.
"These folks are coming for input,"
said Brengle. "I think we can benefit
from the experiences of those people
who have run these types of English
programs around the country." Both
Brengle and Robinson emphasized the
conference is not a review of the depar-

as Englis
tment's new program, but rather a
forum for discussion and consultation.
BUT AT LEAST one TA is not pleased
with the May dates for the conference.
In an unsigned letter to The Daily, the
TA said 'most English 125 TAs will not
be able to attend the discussions due to
their summer scheduling, a move the
TA claims is indicative of the ECB's
inattentiveness to TA input.
Brengle, however, disagreed. "My
impression is that these people were so
booked that it couldn't have been
scheduled earlier," he said.
ROBINSON SAID a memo was sent
to all TAs informing those who could
not attend the discussions to put their
views and impressions of the program
in writing. He also said no problems
with the assigned'dates have been en-
countered and "everyone has been

h comp.
solicited" about the conference.
TA Howard Brick, who wrote a for-
mal critique of the philosophical trend
of the freshman writing program
earlier in the school year, agreed that
the conference is a positive step.
"It's a goodwill gesture on the part of
the people who run the program," said
Brick. The TA also said English 125 TAs
are not under the "same sorts of con-
straints they were last term," because
it is no longer a new program to which
the TAs are unaccustomed.
"The TAs have- been given some
more leeway in teaching their courses
this term," le continued.
However, Brick also said if the ECB
does not allow TA input in devising next
year's course syllabi it may still face
some discontent from the TAs who will
teach English 125 in the fall.

The University's School of Nursing
may lose over a million dollars - one-
third of its 1980 budget - if cuts in
federal funding recommended by
President Carter are approved by
Congress, according to Dean Mary
Lohr.
Lohr, who testified last Thursday
before a U.S. House subcommittee, said
the budget cuts would mean that "It
will probablybe necessary to limit the
number of students admitted to the
school, and to eventually close some of
the master's programs. We would also,
stand to lose half a million dollars a
year in research support."

LOHR, WHO appeared before the
House Interstate and Foreign Com-
merce Health Subcommittee, stressed
the importance of federal funding for
nursing, education, including support
for research projects, student loans and
scholarships, and nurse-practitioner
training;
According to Lohr's testimony,
several specialized training programs
would be affected by the budget cuts.
The pediatric nurse-practitioner
program and master's programs in"
psychiatric, parent-child, and com-
munity health nursing, would be affec
ted by the reductions in federal funding.'

The Carter administration has
recommended that Congress cut
federal support for nursing education
from $122,000,000 for 1979 to $14,000,000
for 1980. In 1978, Congress passed a
Nurse Training Act which the President
vetoed. Lohr urged the subcommittee
to enact a 1980 Nurse Training Act, to
extend federal support for nursing
education.
Earlier this month, a group of 35 nur-
sing school students and faculty mem-
bers went to Wasljngton to appear
before the House and Senate. The
House voted to restore $17,000,000 to
nursing programs, bringing the
recommended cuts to about $22,000,000.
} The Senate Appropriations Committee
recommended cuts of about $16,000,000.
