JORDAN will receive 15 to 20 jet fighters from the United

The U.S. has displaced Great Britain as Jordan's principal arms
supplier in recent years, with a military aid program now running
about $45 million annually. According to government analysts, the
new shipment of jets would still leave Jordan's aid force vastly out-}

A recently published study by the Institute
for Social Research (ISR) indicates that high
school dropouts may suffer neither financially
nor emotionally from their lack of a complete
high school education.
The study claims that dropping out is not a
problem in itself, but rather a symptom of "oth-
er problems which have their origins much.
earlier in life." Problems such as past school
failure, low self-esteem, rebellious behavior, and
low socio-economic level were cited both as
reasons why students drop out and as explana-
tions for differences observed between dropouts
Led by Jerald Bachman, senior study director
of ISR, the study dealt with imminent, as well
as actual, dropouts.
In 1966, 2200 randomly selected tenth graders
from 87 high schools filled out comprehensive
surveys concerning all aspects of their lives. Fol-
low-up surveys were then conducted at yearly
intervals to determine what changes had occur-
red in the lives and minds of the participants.
One year after the graduation date of the 1966
tenth grade class, the data concerning dropouts
was correlated and compared with data for
those students who had completed high school.
One of the basic discoveries of the project
was that differences which exist between stud-
ents who enter college and those who gradua.te
from high school but don't enter college are far
more significantathan differences between drop-
outs and graduates not entering college.
Other findings of. the study challenged the
validity of the current anti-dropout campaign,
whose main thrust is to persuade students that
dropping out decreases their chances of finding
Furthermore, the survey reveals that em-
ployed dropouts and graduates had "nearly iden-
tical" weekly income levels and that "three-
'quarters of the dropouts rated themselves 'quite
satisfied' or 'very satisfied' with their jobs, while
two-thirds of the graduates expressed similar
levels of satisfaction."
On the basis of this evidence, Bachman calls
the anti-dropout campaign "propaganda" based
on "superficial interpretation of statistics" and
urges that it be greatly curtailed.
Bachman attributes several negative side ef-
fects to the anti-dropout campaign. Among them
he points to the bad name which the campaign
has given to dropouts and to the fact that as a
result of the campaign, many employers may
now be requiring high school diplomas for jobs
which previously employed non-graduates.
As a first step in closing the gap between
dropouts and society, the study proposes that
"the range of educational opportunities for young
people aged 16 to 18 be broadened, and serious
consideration given to reducing the number of
years necessary for attaining high school diplo-
ma." After graduation, students interested in
continuing their education could then enroll in
publically supported, junior college-like institu-
On a more basic level, the study calls for ex-
panded "early school and pre-school interven-
tions" to "overcode many of the problems which
are deeply-ingrained by the time an individual
is ready to drop out of high school."
The hearing, run by U.S. Congressmen John Conyers (D-Mich.),'
and Robert Drinan (D-Mass.), is part of a nation-wide investigation
by the House Judiciary Committee into the American prison system.

Once upon a time, Gaius Petronius, ARBITER ELEGANTIAE to Nero's court, wrote the world's first novel, the
SATYRICON, now extant only in fragments, and long suppressed or expurgated in this country until a decade
ago. Fellini takes parts of this, and in perhaps his greatest film, follows two handsome pagan hippies through
picaresque episodes in a pagan world-as it was in Nero's time, and as it may be in ours. (For an excellent
article, see Gilbert Highet's "WHOSE SATYRICON-Petronius's or Fellini's," Horizon magazine, Autumn 1970,
