Attempting to make the University "a
more human, more accessible and more
effective community," the Program for
Education in Social Change has been
organizing over the past few months to
enable students and faculty to study so-
cial transformation.
"The group," history Prof. Robert
Sklar explains, "wants to study and
learn about social change, while creat-
ing different kinds of relationships be-
tween students and faculty."
The program, according to Sklar, the
group's spokesman, represents "the in-
tellectual side of the same impulse which
created Radical College"-a group of
radical faculty who organized last year,
but who have been relatively inactive
during the past year.

Sklar says that the group, strengthened
by the return of many Radical College
members from leaves of absence, is now
aiming toward the development of ideas
and programs for the fall term.
However, many of the program's par-
ticipants are now involved in the cam-
paign and fast to end classified research
at the University.
Among the goals outlined by the pro-
gram in its policy statement are the cre-
ation of a community and open institu-
tions where people both within and out-
side the University can come together,
and providing information and assistance
to students wishing to study social trans-
The group also wants to foster a
greater sense of community among fac-
ulty members, communicate ideas and

knowledge about social transformation,
and make the resources of the University
more readily available to persons outside
the University.
In addition, the program hopes to
utilize "its intellectual and social re-
sources to bring about social change in
local and national communities" and
work toward changing "the curriculum,'
educational environment and social
commitments of the University.
While the program's goals are broad
so that "the group can move in the di-
rections people want to," Sklar says the
members are already developing specific
Such plans include providing a coun-
seling service by setting up course lists
for topics such as imperialism or social
ideology, Sklar explains.

"The program might also create
courses which would provide the oppor-
tunity for a person to involve himself
with social change through just one
course or through his whole life," Sklar

The group, however, does not envision
making any major changes in the struc-
ture of the literary college, where most
of the members teach.
"We hope," Sklar explains, "that our
programs are something we can do with-
in LS&A as it is presently organized."
The group, currently numbering 25
students and faculty members, meets at
noon Wednesdays at Guild House.

voted to restore full federal funding of the supersonic transport
plane (SST" while supporters of the project moved on the Sen-
ate floor to soften opposition.
The twin actions came a day after the House voted to kill fed-
eral funding as of March 30.
The key Senate action setting the stage for a final showdown
vote next week came with committee approval of SST funds for the
next three months.
The next step on SST funding will come in the Senate as debate
is scheduled on Tuesday with a vote on the issue on Wednesday.
The Senate meanwhile unanimously approved a bill that would
ban civil aircraft from supersonic flight over the United States un-
less approved by the Federal Aviation Administrations. This would
tend to meet a major opposition to the SST.

Calley's court-martial jury moved to a third day of debate yes-

The judge, Col. Reid Kennedy, said regular 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
hours will be observed today in the one-story courthouse where the
four-month trial was held.
Calley, 27, is on trial for his life on charges of premeditated mur-
der of 102 unresisting Vietnamese men, women and children while
leading his infantry platoon on a combat assault March 16, 1968, on
My Lai.
THE GOVERNMENT reported yesterday the smallest two-
month rise in the cost of living in four years. "This is encouraging
news," said White House press secretary Ronald Ziegler.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics said prices rose 0.2 per cent in
February. Combined with January's 0.1 per cent increase, it was the
smallest two-month increase since February and March of 1967, when
prices also rose a total 0.3 per cent.
The modest February jump'- which still figures out to 0.2 per
cent when seasonal factors are considered - means it cost $119.40
to buy what $100 did in 1967. That is 4.8 per cent more than a year
ago, the smallest 12-month increase in three years.

WASHINGTON M - A third year of mandatory nonmili-
tary service for conscientious objectors - with no loosening
of requirements for the status - was tentatively approved
yesterday by the House Armed Services Committee.
Chairman F. Edward Hebert (D-La.), who had made what
he called the "somewhat radical suggestion" that CO status
be based on depth of conviction, said it was never his inten-
tion to make the status easier for young men to get.
"My intention is to tighten up conscientious objector
status - I don't think some of these men are serving," He-
bert said. "I don't want this%
