Education Costs Discussed
Hardin Tells Regent Winners of Price Rise
MAR 28 1960
Chancellor Clifford M. Har
din told regent scholarship
winners from Lancaster
County that "the financial
barrier which many able
young people find on their
road to college is growing
bigger, not smaller."
Speaking at a Lincoln Ki
wanis luncheon honoring the
students, Hardin said, "Study
after study has indicated that
during the next 10 years the
cost of . higher education can
be expected to increase."
Educational Costs
Discussing the increasing
educational costs, Dr. Hardin
pointed out that the Univer
sity has established a new
program designed to help a
student and his family de
velop a financial plan.
He said that among the en
tering freshmen for next fall
"there are 200 excellent stu
dents whose financial back
ing is so meager that we are
convinced they cannot go to
college unless they receive
help." ....
"The University's resources
have made it possible to de
velop plans for 100 of these
by using $23,000 in scholar
ships plus loans aiTd employ
ment. The other 100 are be
yond reach. We believe that
an additional $24,000 of schol
arship fund properly distri
buted would give these young
sters a chance to at least get

plained, have been made na

College Standard
"Some declare that t h e
standard of college living to
day is much higher than it
need be, that it involves
great expenditures for parties
and comfortable living, and
even for doubtful luxuries.
"This kind of talk attracts
attention. Moreover, it must
be admitted, that it applies
to a small minority of college
students. At the, same time,
however, it must be pointed
out that this same minority
of students is composed of
those who come from homes
of more than average income.

When Is A Pill Not A Pill?
. . . Student Health Pharmacist
By Ann Moyer
A pill is not a pill.
A pill as we know it is no longer considered a pill by
Miss Phyllis Platz, Student Health registered pharma
cist, said most pills are actually tablets. The difference be
tween a pill and a tablet is that a pill is hand rolled and a
tabet is made by machine, she explained.
"The method of hand rolling pills is almost obsolete,"
Miss Platz commented.
The pharmacy is located in the Health Center and
handles an average of 75 prescriptions per day, she said.
"University students are allowed a 25 discount from
the regular price charged for medications from the Student
Health pharmacy," she said, "even if they have been sub
scribed by doctors outside the Health Center."
Miss Platz explained that
prepared and filling a prescription consisted of checking. '
the doctor's order for possible mistakes ard transferring
the medication to containers of the proper size, labeling
them and filing the prescription card.
Jiowever, prescriptions can be compounded in the
Health Center pharmacy. Miss Platz said about 15 of the
orders filled are compounded. She attributed a large nunv
"They are the students
whose' standard of living at
college would not change ma
terially regardless of whether
tuition charges are doubled
or tripled or quadrupled."
The. whole argument over
looks one point, he added:
"The ability of a student to
achieve scholastically does
not move hand in hand with
the ability to pay."
Also, he said, the welfare
of , the nation as well as the
personal welfare of the stu
dent is involved in participa
tion in higher education.
"This is a principle which has
long been established in
America and which has long
been accepted. To abandon it
today would be a great risk."

controversial poet, critic and
lecturer, John Ciardi Thurs
day at 8 p.m. in Love Li

Saturday Review
Ciardi is poetry editor and
critic for the Saturday Re
view. He authored an article
"The Act of Language,"
which appeared in the March
19th issue of the Saturday
Evening Post.
His poetry has been des
cribed as "colorful and
straight-forward" and, as po
etry critic, he has aroused
national controversy more
than once. He has expressed
a presonal belief that "poetry
is itself a religion; it gives
meaning to life."
Dr. James Miller, chair
man of the English depart
ment, noted that Ciardi's po
etry is the type that reaches
the masses.
Boston-born and bred, Ciar
di was educated at Bates and
Tufts Colleges. He received
his Bachelor's degree from
Tufts with high distinction in
1938. In 1939 he earned a
Master's degree from the
University of Michigan.

ure has published eight books
and has won six important
literary prizes, the most re
cent being the Prix de Rome
in 1956, which provided for
study in Rome.
His latest book was pub
lished last year and is en
titled "30 Poems."
In 1958 he was elected pres
ident of the College English
Assn. and is a fellow of the
American Academy of Arts
and Sciences and the Na
tional Institute of Arts and

bcr of these to the medications prescribed by the derma
tologists who are at the center twice a week.
The records of prescriptions date back 15 years and
fill several file cases. These are used for refilling prescrip
tions and reference, Miss Platz explained.
She said it is wise for a person who has been using the
same medication for several years to check periodically
with their doctors because the conditions of the treatment
may change. Also, the advance in medical research leads
to a constantly changing trend in medicines, she explained.
The special swinging shelves In the pharmacy make it
possible to keep on hand more than 10,000 bottles contain
ing tablets, pills, chemicals and solutions, Miss Platz said.
Miss Platz is the only registered pharmacist at the
Health Center at present. She is also a teacher in the Phar
macy school and is frequently assisted by senior students
who have had experience dispensing medications. Ihe stu-
dents are not allowed to dispense prescriptions, however,
unless under the supervision
"Pharmacy is onepf the few professions which is legally
bound not to make mistakes,'' she said. "We are responsible
for catching any mistakes the doctor might have made in
writing the prescription and of course for filling prescrip
tions accurately."

Dean emeritus warned, "The
time has come to look reali
ties in the face.
"What we have to realize,"
he said, "is that law is both
experience and reason. The
reason is developed by ex
perience and tested by
further experience."
The University graduate
traced the progress of law in
his lifetime, noting that prin
ciples and reason rather than
commands have become the
foundation of the law.
Cautioning the law stu
dents arid attorneys in at
tendance not "to shape
analogies into awkward situ
ations," he noted that the
analogy between the individ
ual and a corporation is no
longer valid because of the
size of corporate structures.
"Corporations affect the
public interest as is not pos
sible for the individual," the
former University law school
dean pointed out.
His advice to the students
and members of the legal
profession was, "Go forward
confidently in the law. The
law, like the sun, do move."

edged his talk which lasted
