MORE DEMOCRATIZATION:

Edueation E~
By DIANE LaBAKAS
European ducational opportuni-
ties are increasing, Dean Willard
C. Olson of the School of Educa-
tion recently said.
Returning from a Conference on
Examinations and Evaluation in,
Hamburg, Germany, Dean Olson'
noted a trend toward democratiza-
tion of educational opportunity
"that exists in almost every coun-
try."
Sweden, where enrollment in
secondary education has increased
three times in the last 10 years,
was cited by Dean Olson as one of
the many European countries in-I
creasing its educational opportuni-
ties.
Desires of parents, need for edu-
cation in a more complex society,7
and the realization that education
is an investment rather than an
expense were mentioned by Dean
Olson as reasons for the increase
in educational opportunities. <
Need Realized
"Europe now realizes that a
country reduces its influence and
productivity by not increasing its
educational opportunities," Dean
Olson declared.
France is changing, he asserted.
Once famous for its excessive
homework required of elementary
pupils, France has abolished ele-
mentary homework by a decree of
the Ministry of Education in Nd-<
vember, 1956.
Schools Changing
Comprehensive and unitaryc
schools are also becoming more1
common in Europe, Dean Olsont
said.
"Differentiated and segregated,
programs leading to different typesE
of secondary and collegiate institu-
tions are still common. However,
these types of programs are now
being deemphasized,' he stated,t
"as plans for unitary school sys-
tems with comprehensive secon-1
dary schools are growing."
Dean Olson noted that althought
rigorous examinations, both oral3
and written are still common.
there exists a tread toward tests
to be used for counselling and
guidance, greater emphasis on ap-i
praisals of pupils by teachers, andt
a philosophy maximizing the abili-}
ties of all.

DrugEffect
On rivers
By JOHN WEICHER
How do tranquilizer drugs affect
driving ability?
This is one of the questions
being studied in an experiment by
the Mental Health Research Insti-
tute, under the general supervision
of Dr. James G. Miller
Sixty students from Lester, Mark
VIII, and Owen Co-operative
Houses are serving as subjects for
the tests, in which they are given
various tranquilizer pills and tested
five times.
Driving Tests
In one test the subject tries his
skill on a modified "driver-train-
er," a machine testing tracking
skill and reaction time. It's "hard-
er than it looks," according to
Robert Lindy. '57, one of the four
student research assistants admin-
istering the tests.
"We run a small car attached
to a steering wheel at both a fast
and slow speed and then we let
the subject pick his own speed.
Each time the car goes over one
of Athe staples, in the 'road' it's
counted on the accuracy counter.
We also check reaction time on
the brake," Lindy said.
Checking Vision
Some of the tests are used na-
tionally, and have been standard-
ized while others have been in-
vented by the experimenters solely
for this experiment.
One of this latter kind is the
last of thehtwo-hourkbattery of
tests. The subject is given six pages
with 100 lines having 10 letters
each on every page. The object is
to scan the lines and indicate
after each whether there is an E in
the line or not.
Creating Boredom
A metronome, set at 60 ticks per
minute, is intended to serve as a
guide in the test designed by Prof.
Lowell Kelly of the psychology de-
partment.
"We're trying to test attention
under conditions as boring as pos-
sible, hoping to duplicate the sen-
sation of driving on an express-
way."
In the next room the regular
ticking continued. "That thing
can drive you batty when you're
doing something as boring as that
test," Lindy said. "I remember
one man who came out of there
ready to break up the place. I don't
know what drug he was taking."

LOST AND FOUND__ HELP WANTED

-Daily--Dick Gaskill
EDUCATION SCHOOL HEAD-Dean Olson, having recently re-
turned from an education conference in Hamburg, Germany, cited
the expansion of European educational opportunities.

step rather than ,tests of memori-
zation of past courses are more
often used, Dean Olson remarked.
He also cited a trend towards
opening higher education to able
persons who did not take secon-
dary courses or who concluded
special curriculums pointed at
other purposes.
Growth in technology and com-
munication needs has resulted in
curriculums and examinations,
Dean Olson declared. "Because of
the new needs of vocational, scien-
tific, and technical progress the
content of curriculums and exami-
nations have to change," he ex-
plained.
The United States has moved
more rapidly in the new directions
indicated by research in the devel-
opment and education of children
because there is less tradition to
wipe cut and more acceptance of
res-), rch, Dean Olson asserted.

Confetti Used
InWater Test
Confetti is helping the Univer-
sity solve Detroit's water problems.
Handfuls of the material thrown
into a plastic scale model of a
proposed $6,000,000 Detroit pump-
ing station simulates the water
flow. Civil engineers planning the
project then watch through the
clear walls to detect and eliminate
eddies in the flying confetti.
By measuring air pressure at
points throughout the model and
by tossing the confetti into the
machine, researchers can tell how
effective their designs have been.
Victor L. Streeter, head of the
project points out, "If there was
excessive turbulence in the water,
the station's pumps would not op-
erate at full efficiency and would
require higher maintenance costs.
The pumps would also handle
less water than they are designed
to and would vibrate, become noisy
and wear out faster," he continued.
