U uoncer K
s Lacik if Student Interest. Korol Calls Soviet Math, Science Instruction Good

"Soviet mathematics and
science instruction is, very good,"
said Alexander G. Korol, of Mas-
sachusetts Institute of Technolo-
gy in his lecture on the ten-year
Soviet school system at 4:15 p.m.
yesterday in Aud. A, Angell Hall.
Korol is a member of the senior.
research staff at the Center for
International Studies at MIT, and
is one of the foremost U.S. experts
on the Russian educational sys-
tem.
To Lecture Wednesday
His next lecture will be given
at 4:15 pm. tomorrow in the
Natural Science Aud. on "Soviet
Higher Education f.*r Science and
Technology."
He explained how the present
system of education is the same
as the old Czar schools which were

taken over by students during the
revolution.
Formal Schooling
The present schools are very
formal. There is only one sylabus
for teaching for the whole coun-
try which the- teachers and stu-
dents follow religiously. Russia
has no progressive education such
as IQ and aptitude tests.

Teachers receive many.
years of education with mon
phasis on the subjects the:
to teach. Because of this,
who become teachers receive
pay proportionately to the U
States teacher. Students wh
dropped from school are se
trade schools and trade ap
ticeships.

increases, Miss Hardee said. How-
ever, she placed chief emphasis
on reducing costs to students.
'Bruce Hoffman, '59, was another
who favored the honor system in
the literary college. In non-aca-
demic fields, he asked for SGC to
outlaw all bias clauses on the cam-
pus, and to insist that entering
freshmen be assigned rooms in
order of applications.
Carol Holland, '60, said the
honor system should not be intro-
duced until after a student refer-
endum on the issue. She also said
the honor systemh should "prevail
throughout the University life.''
The entire honor system study:
committee should have been pres-
eft for the SGC debate on -the
proposal, she said.
Keep Education Quality
Paul Kampner, '59, called for
SOC to investigate the ratio of
faculty to students in order to
mak#sure the quality of education
at the University does not decline.
This, would- also help keep classes
small and retain an informal class
atmosphere where possible, he
said.
David Kessel, 'Grad., felt the
honor system would not be good
in the literary, college. "It's the
same old story," he told Panhel.
"The faculty has the honor, the
students have the system." The
college is too big for an honor
system, he said.
New Calendar Urged
Kessel also urged a new Uni-
versity calendar with the first
term ending before Clristmas and
the second in early May. Student
opinion on calendaring has not
been successfully represented to
the faculty and administration, he
said.
Bruce McRitchie, '59, also said
an honor system referendum
should have been held. The gen-

eral rights of initiative and 'refer-
endum should be \granted to the
students, he said.
McRitchie termed the University
"a little unrealistic and hypo-
critical about integration." He re-
ferred to the 1949 ruling that no
groups with written or unwritten
bias clauses were to be permitted
to come onto the campus in future.
"Bias is an accepted practice in
League houses," he said.
Housing Discussed
Housing also came in for dis-
cussion from Fred Merrill, '59.
He said he approved of the mo-
tions passed by SGC Wednesday
calling on the various University
agencies which advertise housing
not to allow landlords who prac-
tice discrimination to use their
facilities, and said the motion
should have been more inclusive.
Dick Odgers, '59, said the honor
system should be tried for one'
semester in the literary college,
and then evaluated by both stu-
dents and instructors. He said SGC
should not "Just pass it over and
forget it."
Sue Rockne, '60, was another
candidate who said SGC should
originate student projects and co-
ordinate student activities in the
educational area. Shealso said
SOC should develop a program to
utilize the 1500 international stu-
dents now on campus before seek-
ing an exchange program.
