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.

mental group to the rest of
the students taking the
course by television lec
ture at the end of the
semester.
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.

They have also moved to
strike down Balfour's claim

Balfour Co., will now be
able to market "official"

according to Lamphear.
"I think the students are
not going to get 'hurt' in
this," said Lamphear.
"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

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

dents whose fathers were

abled while in the service

Unicameral to include that

World War II to the start

the extended waiver period
will affect many persons
previously excluded during
the period from Sept. 2,
1945, and the start of the
Korean War.
The cut-off for veterans
benefits had been July 2,
1953. but it is now extended
