Goss Explains Objection
To Proposed D Ed Degree
Dr. Robert W. Goss, dean of the
University Graduate College,
made a statement Monday to clar
ify the graduate council and grad
uate faculty's objection to the doc
tor of education degree recently
approved by the Board of Regents.
The doctor of education degree
to be administered by the Univer
sity Teachci-s College, had been
recommended by Chancellor R. G.
Gustavson previous to the objec
tions. Reasons cited by Dean Goss
"1. No evidence was presented
showing a real need for this de
lv a desire for it.

"The Graduate Council believe
that the administration of a grad

college means a major and radical
change in the policies of this Uni
versity where all graduate work

the maximum utilization of all the
