Welsh Actor
To Appear
InReading,
Using a desk and chair as props
and a screen displaying the name
Dylan Thomas, the noted Welsh
actor and playwright Emlyn Wil-
liams will create a feeling of a
complete theatre in an unique
one-man performance at 8:30 p.m.
tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.
Williams' performance, "A Boy
Growing Up," is based on stories
and sketches of the life of the
Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, in the
third production of the current
lecture course series.
Williams will make no attempt
to impersonate Thomas but will
develop his program as a story
teller of the episodes which high-
light his works.
The Welsh poet is regarded as
one of the greatest lyric writers
of the century. "A Boy Growing
Up" attempts to show the warm
and humorous side of the often-
fiery Welshman.
Williams won acclaim in Lon-
don two years ago with a presen-
tation' of "A Boy Growing Up." He
brought the program to New York
this fall where it has proved suc-
cessful.
Williams has acted in the Brit-
ish theatre for 25 years. Many of
his stage appearances were in
plays which he wrote.
Tickets for this performance are
available at the A411l Auditorium
Box Office.

America must take a "new look"
at education methods'in light of
Russian scientific progress, Presi-
dent Clarence B. Hilberry of
Wayne State University told hist
faculty members recently.
President Hilberry proposed
three specific improvements to be
made in higher education: higher
eitrance requirements, higher fac-
ulty salaries and re-evaluation of
courses and teaching methods.,
Drastic measures must be taken,
he said because American college
curricula have "remrained essen-
tially unchanged since Hiroshima,"
while those of the Russians obvi-
ously have not.
He proposed changes to give the
taxpayers "assurance that their
children and grandchildren will be
given a better education in 1970
than in 1957.
"As a result of the Russian
achievements, a new respect for
the college teacher in America is
inevitable," President Hilberry con-
tined.
He proposed specifically that
Wayne State University refuse to
teach freshmen information they
should have learned in high school.
Instead of closely directed study,

he urged that freshmen be given
"an hour or two in the library"
and be tested on their reading.
Comparing salaries in the teach-
ing profession with those in indus-
try, President Hilberry declared
the situation "critical," and said
improvement was "imperative to
the national welfare."

Showig Set
For Tonight
An original film of the Hun-
garian revolt last year will be
shown at 7:30 p.m. today in Rack-
ham Amphitheatre.
Sponsored by the International
Center, the film was made possible
through the efforts of the Asso-
ciatiox of Hungarian Students in
the United States.
Thousands of feet of film were
edited and pieced together to show
the events leading up to and dur-
ing the bloody revolution. The ma-
pority of film was smuggled out of
the country by refugee Hungarian
soldiers.
It will be the first time the film
has been shown in Ann Arbor.
Admission is free.

- He in6luded adaptation to new
surroundings when transferring
from a two-year to a four-year
school, the inclusion of two-year,
colleges in statewide planning and.
the development of a thorough
counseling service for community
college students.
He advocated "a plan of com-
prehensive examination" to deter-
mine the abilities of individual
students and to serve as a Partial
solution to the transfer problem.
Emphasizes Counseling Program
He also emphasized the impor-
tance of the counseling program
in the community college in help-
ing students to determine their
ability to handle work in a four-
year institution.
In this way, he said, the com-
munity college can become "a
screening agency," that can les-
sen the flood of college applicants
and direct many into technical
programs who do not meet the ad-
mission requirements of four-
year colleges.
Field called for "the exqhange
of experiences and results" as one
possible method of improving
courses for community colleges.
Have Planning Problems
He explained that courses must
be related to many other phases
of college life.
He outlined three possible ap-
proaches to the designing of
courses. The first he called sub-
ject-centered, or one that "re-
flects the logic of the subject."
The second approach he labeled
problem-centered, such as a sur-
vey course in a sociology class.
For the third, or student-cen-,
tered approach, Fields gave as an
example honors and research pro-
grams, in which the accent is on
the individual work of each
student.
