Two colleges adapt to falling enrollment

By LORENZO BENET
,eclining enrollment may have
played a role in program changes in
two colleges within the University, but
officials from the College of Pharmacy
and the School of Nursing say their
quality of educatin will increase as a
result of the changes. ,
The College of Pharmacy began
phasing out its five-year undergraduate
program last fall. Dean Ara Paul said it
will be replaced by a four-year doctoral
rogram.
STUDENTS WOULD be admitted to
the new pharmacy program during
their junior year after having com-
pleted a two-year pre-pharmacy
program offered through LSA or
another institution.
The doctoral program will admit only
40 students each year - that's half

what we used to admit," said Paul. "By
shrinking our enrollment, we can use
our resources more effectively and of-
fer a better education to our students."
Paul added that in the last year of the
new program, each student will be in-
volved in an extensive research project
that will be overseen by a member of
the pharmacy faculty. In addition, the
doctoral program will offer the student
a full year of clinical experience.
HE ALSO said. that the old program,
which will be phased out completely by
1983, did not offer enough emphasis in
the , natural sciences and phar-
maceutical sciences, as well as in
communication and counseling skills.
"The doctoral program will have a
professional component to it," said
Paul. "A graduate from this program
will be able to distribute information

about drugs to his customer in a com-
fortable and effective manner."
Even though applications to the
Pharmacy College have been
decreasing in recent years, Dean Paul
said that this was not the reason for
dropping the undergraduate program."
"We wanted to get smaller to upgrade
the quality of our program," he
stressed. "I believe pharmacy schools
all over the country will move in this
direction."
IN CONTRAST to the College of
Pharmacy, the School of Nursing has
made various program changes in
large part due directly to declining
enrollment.
Helen Erickson, coordinator of un-
dergraduate curriculum for the Nur-
sing School, said that by 1985 the school
will have decreased its undergraduate
enrollment from the current 780 to 500.

She also said the school expects to in-
crease its graduate enrollment by 100.
She said that in 1985 an instructor will
need at least a master's degree to teach
at the undergraduate level, which is
currently not the case. The school also
wants to upgrade its research program,
and thus will require more Ph.D.
faculty members, Erickson added.
"These are the primary reasons why
we want to increase the enrollment in
our graduate school," she said.
SHE ADDED that since the un-
dergraduate school expects an ap-
plication rate drop, the admissions
standards will not have to be decreased
because of the size transition.

"Many nursing schools are moving in
the same direction," she explained.
"The National League of Nursing set
the trend towards a research and
graduate-oriented program several
years ago."
The undergraduate school is also in
the process of phasing out the old
curriculum to implement a new
program that is more "people-
oriented," Ericson said.
"IN THE PAST the nursing program
has solely focused on the illness aspect
of the individual," said Erickson. "Now
we also focus on the person as a whole."
"Clients not only need medical
treatment, but psychological treatment

as well," she said.
Erickson also said that many people
are under the impression that nurses
cannot act independently. The new
curriculum, she says, is in part an ef-.
fort to destroy this stereotype.
Both the School of Nursing and the
College of Pharmacy spent several
years developing their programs before
implementation. Students, faculty, and
staff from each school contributed to
the respective processes.
The changes cannot be seen as
primarily fiscal. Each school will main-
tain its current operating budget in ad-
dition to expecting incremental budget
increases over the next several years.

vised Carter to begin registration
during June or July, according to Lynn,
who added that summer registration
also would benefit the president
because it would not come too close to
the election.

Henry Tudor, the earl of Richmond,
landed in Wales on Aug. 7, 1485, after 14
years of exile and one previous unsuc-
cessful rising. Richard III was killed at
the Battle of Boswort.h Field two weeks
later and Henry claimed the throne
through descent from John of Gaunt.
Henry had been head of the House of
Lancaster since the murders of Henry
VI and Prince Edward in 1471. As
Henry VII, he ruled until his death in
1509 'and' was succeeded by his son
Henry VIII.

the event of a national emergency.
"This is of no serious military con-
sequence," Lynn said. He claimed that
President Carter called for registration
because of political considerations.
Lynn said Carter's decision to limit
registration to 19- and 20-year-olds was
"totally political."
"The president wanted to take steps
which would look tough but would have
minimal political impact," Lynn said.
According to Lynn, Sen. Mark Hat-
field (R-Ore.) is leading the Senate ef-
fort against registration. Lynn also said
Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wisc.), the
chairman of the Armed Forces Sub-

Tregristratoi
committee, "is very dubious about
spending $20 million on this system."
CARD was formed last April as a
coalition of several groups that oppose
the draft and registration. CARD's
local branch has staged some area
demonstrations.
Such demonstrations are just what
educators wanted to avoid when the ad-

'U' professor dies

University Research Professor
Emeritus Herbert Youtie, considered
the world's foremost authority on the
study of ancient papyrus texts, died
Wednesday at St. Joseph's Hospital. He
was 75.
Through ",remarkably acute scholr-
ship" Youtie recreated everyday life in
Rome and Egypt by deciphering scraps
..®f papyrus from that time period, ac-
cording to University Classical Studies
Department Chairman H.D. Cameron.
YOUTIE WAS also well-known in
Europe, where he lectured at Oxford
University, the University of London,
and the University of Brussels.
His many honors included President
d'Honneur of the Associationo Inter-
nationale des Papyrologues, a
Guggenheim Fellowship in 1957, a
University Henry Russel Award in 1946,

and was named Russel lecturer in 1962.
In 1974 he received the Distinguished
Faculty Achievement Award.
"THE FACT that Professor Youtie
was here gave luster to the University
of Michigan in the eyes of scholars
throughout the world," Cameron com-
mented. "He was the greatest
papyrologist of his time. A man whose
awesome learning, kindly good humor,
and gentle wisdom will be sadly
missed."
Youtie came to the University in 1929
as a research assistant, was promoted
to research associate in 1932, and in
1946 was named research professor of
papyrology.
Youtie is survived by his wife, Louise.
No funeral or memorial service is plan-
ned.

If you missed 1957 you missed the Russians launching Sput-
nik I into earth orbit. You missed seeing a young singer
continue his rise to the top of the record industry with a song
called Jailhodse Rock. You missed the ballyhooed introduc-
tion of a car called Edsel. And you missed the birth of an
industry when a group of talented young engineers and
scientists formed the nucleus of Fairchild's
semiconductor operations.
Though you missed the beginning,
you haven't missed the future. Tal-
ent, enthusiasm and hard work
can take you as far today as it did
in 1957. Maybe even farther. Today,
with the vast resources of our parent company,
Schlumberger Limited, Fairchild is committed to
technological leadership and innovation. And while
we're pioneering new technologies, we are also creating

new career enrichment and em-
ployee benefit programs.

Fairchild has exciting career openings on
both the West and East Coasts.
We'll be on campus in the next
week or so and would like to talk

to you about the future,. Yours

and ours. Visit your placement center for the time and
