Class Room Television
Proves Great Success

'

By SHIRLEY CROOG
Experiments with closed-circuit
television as a means of classroom
instruction are beginning to is-
sue favorable results.
Sixty colleges, universities and
high schools in the country are
offering closed circuit television
instruction, according to a report
issued by the American Council
on Education.
The method, which permits one
professor to lecture to several
hundred students simultaneously,
may change the present pattern of
classroom instruction and pos-
sibly be an answer to the problem
of increasing enrollments.
Educators experimenting with
closed-circuit television instruc-
tion believe it has advantages. One,
television allows a teacher to de-
monstrate his subject at close
range, particularly in engineering
and similar technical courses. Sec-
ond, it permits student teachers
to observe classes and to discuss
them without interrupting the
class. Third, it provides a com-
mon basis for learning to several
hundred students at a time.
Among the colleges experiment-
ing with closed circuit television
is Stephens College in Columbia,
Missouri. The method allows an
instructor to lecture to 50 classes
simultaneously, providing mater-
ial for subsequent independent
classroom instruction.
At New York University 500
freshmen and sophomores meet
twice weekly for a creative writ-
ing and English Literature lec-
ture via television. A third class
meeting provides individual in-
struction and discussion.
Pennsylvania State University
has completed a one-year trial to
test the effectiveness of present
classroom instruction compared to
closed-circuit television teaching.
The result of the project showed
the latter to provide "excellent"
Mass Meeting
To Be Held
Mass meeting for all students
interested in working on commit-
tees for the 1956 Michigras, will
be held at 7:15 p.m. today in the
Union Ballroom.
Explanations of the work in-
volved for ten of the 13 commit-
tees will be presented by com-
mittee chairmen. Movies fron the
last Michigras will also be shown.
Students are needed to work on
the following committees: parade,
booths, concessions, posters, de-
corations, publicity, programs, re-

instruction from one source

Use Two-way Hook-up
At the State University of Iowa,
a two-way television hook-up is
being used. The system permits
discussion between the lecturer
in the television room and the
students and establishes the neces-
sary pupil-instructor relationship
needed in education.
The University is not conduct-
ing experiments with closed cir-
cuit television education at the
present time. According to Prof.
Garnet Garrison, Director of Tele-
vision, there is no official com-
mittee studying opportunities for
an experiment. "However," Prof.
Garrison said, "there appears to
be considerable latent interest in
the idea."
Eugene Irish, consultant in the
Audio-Visual Education Center be-
lieves the objection to classroom
television education is it "estab-
lishes a remoteness between the
teacher and learner."
"From a practical angle," Irish
continued, "the cost of production
and the problem of training a staff
to handle the medium are two
prohibitive factors facing us at this
time.
"We are not directly opposed to
it: we're just waiting to see whe-
ther the advantages will outweigh
the disadvantages in the long run,"
Irish added.

be exhausted."
"Maybe a trifle," said Beppo with a brave little smile.
-"Do you know what I do when I'ni tired?" asked the friend.
"Light . Philip Morris?" Beppo ventured.
"Oh, pshaw, you guessed!" said the friend, pouting.
"But it was -easy!" cried Beppo, laughing silverly. "When
the eyelids droop and the musculature sags and the psyche is
depleted, what is more natural than to perk up with today's
Philip Morris in the red, white and gold package?"
"A bright new smoke in a bright new pack!" proclaimed the
friend, his young eyes glistening with tears.
"Changed to keep pace with today's changing world!" de-
clared Beppo, whirling his arms in concentric circles. "A gentler,
