Computers on Campus
Thank you for a fine article onthe impact
of computers on higher education (TECH-
NOLOGY). The one thing that troubles me,
though, is whether students who are fasci-
nated by computers will eventually become
unwilling or unable to use traditional mate-
rials such as books, magazines and newspa-
pers. Are we creating a generation of idiot
savants who find their way around a com-
puterkeyboard in their sleepbut can't find a
book listing in a card catalog?

The computer has created social interac-
tion at Clarkson College? What about fresh-
man humanities courses, late-night study-
ing, hockey games, barrooms-the list
could go on. I agree the computer is a won-
derful tool, but it does not change one's life.
And it certainly doesn't make interesting
GARY J. GARRAHAN
Computers may be an integral compo-
nent in the future of academics as you de-
scribed. It appears, however, that these new
teaching tools aren't able to help students
overcome one of the most prevalent prob-
lems on campuses today: incompetence in
the English language. While Primanti's res-
taurant, described in the printout on page
10, may have "cheese steaks," the people
there are "weird" not "wierd." Perhaps we
should consider making some basic im-
provements in English departments before
putting a computer in every dorm.
Howard Hillman's column on "Beer
Myths" promoted beer better than any
commercial could (LIFE/STYLE).
Why is it assumed that college students
are a bunch of uncontrolled beer guzzlers?

It's incomprehensible and unfortunate
that Neal Karlen advises alumni to "fight
back" and offers "defenses" against college
fund raising (MY TURN). Active alumni as-
today. They provide for scholarships, new
buildings and scientific research among
other things. Every student who goes to
college benefits from the generosity of the
NEWSWEEK ON CAMPUS/MARCH 1984
alumni who graduated before him. And if a
student thinks his tuition more than cov-
ered the costs of college, he should look
again at the costs of running an academic
institution. Chances are that without the
help of alumni, tuitions would be higher.
MARIA K. WOLOG
Privately endowed institutions of higher
learning owe their very existence to the
loyalty and devotion oftheir alumni. Unlike
our public counterparts, we receive no state
decade, I, for example, have returned hap-
pily ever afterto academe as the editor of my
favorite alumni magazine. So far my move
has worked out splendidly, even if I have yet
to savor mussels scungilli for breakfast with
our varsity volleyballplayers.

Since you included us in "Summer '84

record number of requests for information
about our Africa program. Your statement
has motivated many students to consider
Africa for their summer '84 travels.

Your story about fashionjobs (CAREERS)
was the best national coverage that I have
ever clipped for our fashion library. For
fashion/design students in the West, our
small museum shines as an example of
where they can go to examine vintage gar-
ments firsthand. Guided by fashion experts,
we have kept our closet doors open and
accessibleby sharingsome 6,000 document-
ed garments and fashion accessories. Our
programs are available at nominal cost to all
students of the history of costume.

Student fashion designers should be
proud. Their creations are almost as ridicu-
lous as the ones coming out of Paris.
Colleges and Schools
I enjoyed "Rally Round the Schools"
(EDUCATION). It's great that universities
are lending a helping hand to the public-
school systems. Introducing high-school
students to technology and various other
fields will raise our educational standards
and benefit the students by easing the shock
of a college workload.

or federal subsidies to balance our budgets
or build our facilities. Surely, Karlen's
counsel would spell eventual death to pri-
vate-sector education at all levels, and our
society would be the poorer for it.

Delightful! Truth and humor can be fun.
Thank you, Neal.
S. M. DEBACHER
Thank you for Karlen's hilarious col-
umn. As an alumnus of the University of
Wisconsin, where the pledge mailing is be-
nignly headlined "Wisconsin Calling," I
sympathized with Karlen's mild annoyance
and laughed out loud at his comical
Neal Karlen's "calumni" was amusing
but his advice that alumni sever links with
their alma maters utterly lacks imagination.
There are better strategies. After being pur-
