ENROLLMENT, QUALITY OF EDUCATION TO DECLINE
Colleges approach'Golden Age'?

The Michigan Daily-Wednesday, January 23, 1980-Page3

-WASHINGTON (AP)-College enrollment will
bhrink 5 to 15 per cent during the next two decades,
roducing a "Golden Age" for students as colleges
scramble to attract them and tailor courses to their
tastes, the Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in
Higher Education predicted yesterday.
While faculty and administrators struggle to cope
with the "demographic depression" of the youths of
traditional college age, students "will seldom if ever
have had it so good on campus," the council said.
"The difficulties of others can only rebound to their
advantage. This may well become their Golden Age."
THE COUNCIL said it was "quite likely" the
tion's 3,000 colleges and universities would suffer
'a downward drift in quality, balance, integrity,
dynamism, diversity, private initiative and research

s i (,,,

capability."
But the panel said that was not inevitable and it
discounted the fears of some educators that the 1980s
and 1990s will be "a dark age" for higher education.
"Becoming somewhat smaller is, we believe, com-
patible with becoming somewhat better," said the
council in its final report entitled "Three Thousand
Futures: The Next Twenty Years in Higher
Education."
"NO DEMOGRAPHIC disease of epidemic propor-
tions will sweep over all higher education during the
next 20 years," said the report. The disease "will be
selective; some institutions will diefrom it; nearly.all
will be affected by it. . . and all will need to take some
precautions."
The council, chaired by Clark Kerr, is winding up

its business after issuing more than 100 reports on
higher education since 1967 under its aegis and
through a predecessor group, the Carnegie Com-
mission on Higher Education. Its work will be con-
tinued by a related group, the Carnegie Foundation
for the Advancement of Teaching.
Census Bureau figures show the number of 18-to-24-
year-olds will fall 23 per cent by 1997. But the council
forecast that drop will be cushioned by increasing
college enrollment of adults, women and minorities,
and a lowering of the 40 per cent college dropout rate.
It said college enrollment actually is likely to grow
10 per cent in the Southwest and West and 5 per cent
in the South, while falling 10 per cent in the East and
Midwest.

gives no to, wit as new treasurer

By MITCH STUART,
and TOM MIRGA
The Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) had no difficulty in approving
' he appointment of a new treasurer last
night and raised no questions about the
method used to select the new officer.
However, deep concerns were raised
about the interviewing and nomination
process for most other external appoin-
tments, and the assembly could take
action next week to alter its current
policies.
LSA SOPHOMORE Jeff Smith
replaced assembly veteran Brad
,analle and will assume his new
osition as MSA treasurer Feb. 1.
Canalle said he would continue to assist
the assembly until Smith felt comfor-
table with his new job.
The new treasurer said he was leaving
his current post as business manager
for the University Activities Center's
(UAC) Viewpoint Lecture series-
because' "the experience would be
good. I felt that I would add a lot to the
position. I felt I would be able to con-
ibute quite a bit."

Iner n nominating
procedures discussed

"I don't know a great deal about the
assembly," he conceded. "I see the role
of the assembly as working in the best
interests of the students."
SMITH WAS chosen from a field of
five applicants after compelting a bat-
tery of interviews with MSA Permanent
Interviewing Committee (PIC) Coor-
dinator Bob DiScipio, MSA President
Jim Alland, Canalle, and the assem-
bly's Steering Committee..
Alland said he found Smith to be "a
very capable and strong-spoken in-
dividual" and praised his strong finan-
cial background. Canalle said he was
happy that MSA was able "to buy out
his contract from UAC and put him to
work" for the assembly.
"Jeff will work very hard to bring
MSA's neanderthal knowledge of finan-
ces back up to date," the former
treasurer quipped.
ALTHOUGH NO specific questions

were raised during the meeting about
the details of Smith's appointments,
substantial doubts were brought up
about MSA's external appointment in-
terviewing and nominting process.
"Important appointments would
come up, like the University Cellar
board of directors seats that were
discussed last week, and nobody would
know a thing about the people who ap-
plied or what the positions exactly en-
tailed," said Assembly Member Jack
Hall. "The process just doesn't work
well."
At last week's meeting, the assembly
narrowly approved the appointment of
three men to the student-operated
bookstore board of directors. Substan-
tial discussion on the matter centered
over the fact that neither women nor
minorities were represented in the pool
of applicants for those positions.
HALL'S PROPOSAL -to the assembly

last night would alter the composition of
MSA's external appointment inter-
viewing mechanism to include
representation of both woien and
minorities. The assembly member
suggested that three seats on the body
be reserved for MSA members to
assure dialogue on the appointments
between members of different political
viewpoints.
In addition, Hall also recommended
that persons rejected during the inter-
viewing process for a certain position
be informed of any future job openings.
Canalle expressed mixed reactions to
the Hall proposal, saying that change in
MSA policy should occur if deemed
necessary to enhance the structure of
the organization.
"We must get the best students to fill
these positions to a tee," he said. "If we
aren't fullfilling that need, change is
necessary. But we have no quotas to
fill, we aren't bound by Title IX or state
statutes regarding affirmative action. I
hope we don't come off the wall with a
proposal without an impact analysis."

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Darter is considering a proposal asking
ongress to authorize a peacetime
registration of draft-age youths, ad-
ministration sources said yesterday.
The sources said they were uncertain
who made the proposal but added that
they believed it came from, within the
White House staff.
THE SOURCES, who asked not to be
identified, also said they were uncer-
tain whether Carter would accept the

proposal and whether he would include
such a request to Congress in his State
of the Union address tonight.
If he does so, Carter will be changing
his administration's position on the
question of a peacetime registration.
White House spokesman declined to
comment on the issue last night.
Last summer Defense Secretary
Harold Brown told Congress, "We don't
propose'to go to registration, let alone
the draft, until we are convinced that
other methods won't do the job."
