Experiment Discards Lectures Econ Students Learn On Their Own About 230 University stu dents are being encouraged to cut lectures this semes ter. The lectures are in Eco nomics 11 and the students are part of an experiment being researched by F. Charles Lamphear, assis tant professor of economics. "We are offering this ex perimental course with no lectures because we are concerned with better ways to teach Economics 11 and 12," Lamphear said. JOINT EXPERIMENT With Campbell R. Mc Connell, professor of eco nomics, Lamphear has been working for six months on research for the course, which will have only as signed readings, exams and optional tutorial sessions. "We are faced with two problems," said Lamphear, which forced the college to consider other instructional methods. "There is a larg er number of students and there is a limited faculty." VOLUNTARY BASIS The course is completely voluntary, Lamphear em phasized. Of approximately 1.000 students enrolled in economics. 230 signed for the no-lecture class. Because of paperwork in volved in research on the experiment, Lamphear ex pressed satisfaction on the enrollment number. Lamphear will compare Balfour Loses Monopoly As a result of recent ac tion by the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. courts, no jewelry com pany will be able to claim that it sells "official fra ternity jewelry", according to a Lincoln jeweler. The rulings have come in conjunction with an FTC report which says that L. G. Balfour Co., Attleboro, Mass.. has monopolized the market for national college fraternity rings and other insignia.

TUTORING PROVIDED "There will be eight tu torial sessions for review that the students may at tend if they wish," Lamp hear said. "This will pre sent an opportunity to bring questions forward." The students in the ex perimental section may also go to teaching assistants for individual help. "The only thing they can't do is attend lectures," he noted. "The television lectures do not cover any additional information to the text and required read ings." SAME EXAMS All the introductory eco nomics students will take the same exams, enabling Lamphear to make com parative studies. "When we go into test ing." he said, "we may find that perhaps only students with a 2.8 or above are able to do it, or that this type of course should be re stricted to juniors and sen iors." If the students in the ex perimental course pull low er grades on the average than the television-lecture students, they will be put on their own grade scale, Lynch, found the company had exclusive contracts for 98.2rf of the 15.866 nation al college fraternity chap ters. The examiner said this allowed Balfour to fix and control prices. Lynch recommended that the FTC bar the company from alleged illegal re straint of trade in the man ufacture, sale and distri bution of insignia such as badges, buttons, and pins, according to the Wall Street Journal. SELL HOLDINGS U.S. courts have since ruled that the Balfour com pany must sell a number of its holdings, including its wholly owned subsidiary. .d-t. ill Wii iii iii iinii I H I M W P - L j-'A j y 1 f Burr.

"They will have the as signments from week to week, teaching assistants for individual help and tu torial sessions every two weeks, if thev want them. RESPONSIBILITY "Of course, there is an element of responsibility," he added. "But. I have the feeling that students are go ing to be prepared for the exams." A student in the experi mental course agreed on the "element of responsi bility." "If a person does this on his own. it brings our re sponsibility." said Ron Col burn, sophomore. "I anticipate that this will be my first chance to take a book and get out of it what I want to and not what the teacher expects," Colburn said. .USE TUTORS Colburn said he planned to use the tutorial sessions and to avoid cramming by keeping up with the read ing assignments. "Not having to cram is part of the responsibility I accepted when I agreed to take the course." he said. Lamphear indicated that he and Professor McConnell would have the results with in a few months after the end of the first semester. companies were indicted by a Federal grand jury in Atlanta on charges of rig ging prices of class rings and graduation invitations and announcements in Georgia, the Wall Street Journal reported. Retired Chem Dept. Head Dies In Lincoln Former chairman of the University chemistry de partment from 1955 to 1963, Dr. Edward R. Washburn, died Aug. 31 in Lincoln.

A member of the Ameri can Chemical Society and the American Association for Advancement of Science, Dr. Washburn was also af filiated with the honoraries, Sigma Xi Alpha Chi Sigma and Phi Lambda Upsilon. v "7 in it fv m "At the end of the semes ter, the course will be an alyzed," Lamphear said. He added that the college would have the decision on the fate of the no-lecture method. Dorms Plan To Publish Frosh Book The Inter-Dormitory As sociation will publish a Freshman Booklet within the next three weeks, according to Brian Ride nour, president of the organ ization. "The council feel that dorm residvnts are not fully acquainted with the purpose and potential of IDA," Ri denour said, "so we feel the booklet is necessary." The booklet will contain the organizational struc ture, projects, concepts, his tory, and recommendations of IDA. In addition to IDA information the booklet also lists the campus activities and university history of each dorm. Nebraska Legislature Extends Tuition Waiver The tuition waiver for stu dents whose fathers were either killed or totally dis abled while in the service has been lengthened by the Unicameral to include that period from the end of World War II to the start of the Korean War.
