'U' distribution plan
changes considered

(Continued from Page 1)1
Students were advised to discuss
their individual distribution plan with
an advisor. Students who failed to do
this were required to fulfill a standard
plan including at least two courses in
each of the three areas naturaltscience,
social science, and humanities.
According to the commission's 1974
report, the individual plan of
distribution was, emphasized in order
to "require that students assess their
own intellectual needs in terms of their
previous experiences and future
plans." The commission also reported
that "students often feel forced, in the
name of distribution, to take coursed inr
which they have little interest."
Students should be "responsible for
planning their own path," the report
stated.
A subcommittee formed by the
College Curriculum Committee in the

fall of 1977 discovered that students
tended to shy away from creating their
own distribution plan. Eighty per cent
of the students used the standard
pattern, according to Knott.
The 1977 subcommittee
recommended the initial focus be
placed on the standard pattern and
students be required to take three
rather than two courses in each general
area. This form of distribution
requirementis the one in present use.
According to Thornton, the GRC was
"erroneous in its assessment of
student's opinions." He said that it was
"unfair to demand that students know
the curriculum before they come in (to
the University)" and that students
were expected to know how to
transform their undergraduate
experience into a "coherent whole."
"The University owes an obligation to
students to say that knowledge is a
whole.. .that everything can fit
together," Thornton said.
Modification of distribution
requirements "probably won't affect"
the number of students who apply to the
University, according to Knott. He
added that "Anything we do to upgrade
the undergraduate program will help us
to compete within this competitive
effort to get students (to enroll)." Any
changes* in distribution requirements
are not likely to be instituted by next
fall, Knott said.

Luther Allison, perhaps the most accomplished and certainly the best known
of the younger generation of Chicago bluesmen is making his first Ann Arbor
appearance in a couple of years this week. Tonight Luther and band will be
at Rick's American Cafe, of all places, and share the bill at Second Chance
tomorrow with John Mayall (yes, he's still at it). Luther's scorching guitar
draws equally on rock and soul while staying firmly rooted in the blues -
he's an original that shouldn't be missed.

has heard performed by respected
classical instrumentalists. Lagoya's
eternal plucking away at a simple oc-
tave interval further heightened the
misery. .
Lagoya continued, alone, with a Villa-
Lobos piece that was occasionally
beautiful, but largely unremarkable.
His variations on a theme from.
Mozart's Magic Flue were joyless, even
depressing.
THERE REMAINED on the program
only Giuliani's Grand Sonata in A
major. At long last, the duo seemed to
be playing a piece they knew. For the
first time of all the selections the two

played, neither was ever surprised by
an interpretive decision the other
made. The piece itself is no master-
work, but, blessed with an in-
vigoratingly uplifting allegro and 's
charming minuetto, it provided
welcome contrast with tlhe previous,
execrable duet (by Shankar).
In all, the concert's most promin
virtue was its brevity. Foolish as it m
seem for a student critic to offer advice
to world-famous artists, Mssrs. Ram
pal and Lagoya simply need to practice
- together - until they are not merely
adequate, but spectacular. Their
listeners will settle for no less.
