PAGE. B-6 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, 1988 Extension Services at Edwardsville SIU Boom By T>ALF, ARMSTRONG Telegraph Staff Writer E D W A R 1) S V I L L E Proudly boasting a role in statewide as well as community services. Southern Illinois University offers some of Its best evidence for the rbim in its Extension Services program. The recent and rapidly growing program on t. h e SIU campus here ranges from course offerings in Springfield and nearer locations such as Belleville, to state and regional conferences nr>d workshops. Enrolment in courses offered -uvay from the campus leaped from (id students in the fall quarter of lflf>5 to a recerd 42S students in the winter quarter of this year. Since, the establishment of an Of f i"c of University Extension Services at Ed- wardsvlle. in HMtf, a shift has been laking place "from a seller's market to a buyer's market," according to Dr. H. Bruce l.rubaker, assistant dean of Extension Services. An alt-university agency, Exten ei on Services operates programs from its Carbondale and Edwardsville campuses. As assistant dean, however, Dr. Brubaker is almost totally responsible for proje£.s on the Edwardsville Campus, because the offices of his "boss," Dean Raymond Dey, are located at CarbO'K'ale. The primary goal of Extension Services. Dr. Brubaker said is "to impart knowledge, to persons not in regular Attendance at the un- ivcrsi';' " The two major functions of iho program operate through Extension classes offered <>ff campus, and educational conferences. Mo--» educational conferences arc offered on campus — some sponsored by the university and some by outside groups — but others are occasionally held in nearbv cities and towns, with a^istance provided on oi her conferences throughout I lie country and in some eases around the world. Exl.-r.sion classes, which range from driver education :ind children's literature 1o psychology and in- dopen>'''Mit study, were offered during the past quarter in Belleville. Carrollton. Centralia, (ireenville, Hardin. Highland, Hillsboro, Jacksonville. Jcrseyville, Litchfield. Piasa, Salem, Springfield and Vandalia. When the Extension program was enlarged to include an office at Edwardsville in the fall of 1965, three courses were offered off campus, with an enrollment of Gfi students. A ya p ar later, in the fall of 19(55 16 courses were being offered, with an enrollment of 412 students. In the past winter quarter, 24 classes wet-e attended by a record 4?S students. • Enrollment dropped slightly this past spring quarter, to 413 students. Only 19 courses were offered, however, making the average enrollment 22 students per class, compared to less than 18 students per class during the winter quarter One reason for fewer courses being offered last quarter is an apparent general shortage of teachers available to teach off campus. With the exception of the Education Division, regular members of the faculty are not generally available, Brubaker s.iid. Faculty chairmen and deans of other divisions, according to Brubaker, "with few exceptions report that they are understaffed and therefore cannot supply faculty members to teach Extension." Brubaker feels that part of th° problem may be attributed to university policy, which does not permit faculty members to teach Extension classes as an overload for extra pay, but requires Extension teaching, if any is done, to be included as part of the teacher's regular load. Should a teacher conduct Extension courses, he would consequently be forced to reduce f he number of cours- TEACHERS' TEACHER — Ed -Johnson, holding folder, teaches driver training at Belleville West High School under (lie auspices of Southern Illinois University's Extension Division at Ed- wardsville.

The shortage presents a serious problem, Brubaker said, pointing out that Extension Services has been unable to fill requests for undergraduate courses at Scott AFB, Springfield, Montgomery County and the U.S. Army Mobility Equipment Command in St. Louis. On the brighter side, however, Brubaker points out that teachers from the Faculty of Teacher Education and Curriculum have been made readily available, and the majority of Extension courses are in the area of education. The biggest demand for Extension courses is from teachers in outlying areas who are working toward graduate degrees, Brubaker said. Other reasons for enrolling in Extension courses, he said, fab 1 in two general categories. Some students take Extension courses "for their own enlightenment," while others enroll in courses to improve or maintain their status on the salary scale. A smaller percentage of students, he said, are work- Ing in Extension courses as part of then- undergraduate degrees, although they will eventually have to attend classes on campus to complete their requirements. Like most administrators, Brubaker complains that his own office is understaffed. Assisted by two secretaries and one student worker, he hopes part of the problem will be solved this fall, when he expects additional personnel in his office. One area which particularly calls for extra personnel is the workshops and conferences held on and off campus. From July 1, 1965, to June 30, 1966, Extension Services assisted with 46 conferences and special events attended by approximately 3,600 persons. In comparison, the office assisted with 147 conferences and special events, attended by 11,500 persons, from July 1, 1966, through June 30, 1967. The conference, almost always well attended, may run from one hour in some cases to several days in others. Recent conferences have covered such areas as school law, clinics for flight instructors, Mormons in Illinois, physical education and music workshops and crime and delinquency. The conferences and the Extension classes, Brubaker said, are both examples of the university's "effort to fulfill its commitment of service to the community." While both programs are time consuming in themselves, they are only part of the job performed by Extension Services. Another project recently completed was to help coordinate plans with Carbondale for a summer study program in Europe. The program offers SIU students a chance to study courses applicable to various countries in Europe, while visiting those countries. The courses are taught by SIU faculty members and include regular college credit. While each student pays a proportionate share of the expenses, a round-trip flight to Europe was scheduled at group rates, and some of the seats were bought by students planning to tour Europe without enrolling in courses. A second project recently completed involved coordinating various activities in connection with graduation exercises June 8, when more than 750 students were awarded degrees. Because of the shortage of space in the main building complex of the Edwardsville Campus, Extension Services has occupied offices in farm houses purchased along with land for the campus. Brubaker anticipates moving into a section of the new administration building to be completed In January, however, where the Extension Services office will be In closer contact with the rest of the campus. The new structure will become the sixth major building on the Edwards- Campus. Mrs. Mary E. Chester, 53, of 508 Chewy St.,, a lifelong resi- ent of AHon, died at 8:10 a.m. oday at Ft.

RISING MARKET — Dr. H. Bruce Brubaker, assistant dean, shown here, says off-campus classes offered by Southern Illinois University are on an increase creating a "buyer's market." Ex-Convict Fails To Teach Judge His Points of Law By BILL LHOTKA Telegraph Staff Writer EDWARDSVILLE — A 67-year-old ex - convict's attempts to teach his version of constitutional law to Magistrate Judge Thomas Welch at a preliminary hearing here Tuesday afternoon failed — he was bound over to the grand jury on a charge of theft. Arrested by Alton police early Saturday morning and subsequently charged with theft in connection with a burglary of the D'Adrian Medical Park in Godfrey was Walter Nolan of 5206 Washington Ave., St. Louis. Nolan appeared in court here Tuesday and charged that the proceedings against him were unconstitutional because he was not represented by counsel. "I make a motion orally to the court that I be allowed to consult with a public defender before proceeding," Nolan said. An earlier attempt by Nolan to procure an attorney failed when no lawyer appeared Tuesday in his behalf. Judge Welch continued a hearing on the public defender motion until after the preliminary hearing, an action which brought further charges of procedural illegality from Nolan. Later, the ex-convict who has served four sentences for armed robbery in two states while six other armed robbery charges against him in the past 30 years were dismissed, claimed a search warrant for his car was unconstitutional be- cuase there was no probable cause for the search.

The theft was reported to the Madison County sheriff's office at 7:17 a.m. Tuesday by a night clerk at the motel. Entry to the 1968 Ford of Lt. Robert P. Cole, of Carmel, N.Y., was gained by inserting a wire between the windows and lifting the lock button, the sheriff's office said. The stolen items, valued at $492, included 4 uniforms, 2 sport coats, 10 shirts, 1 raincoat, 5 dresses, 2 shirts and $100 in cash. The sheriff's office also reported this morning a burglary at the Alton Wrecking Co., on Stutz Lane In Forest Homes, where $170 In cash a transistor radio valued at $15 were stolen. The burglary was rpeorted to the sheriff's office at 7:47 a.m. today by owner BUI Stutz. Entry had been gained by breaking a door window on the north side of the building. testified that Nolan was stopped after running a stopsign on State Street at the north edge of Alton. Failing to post $25 bond for the traffic offense, Nolan was taken to Alton police station where Cowan said he saw a gun barrel protruding from under the front seat. The Madison County sheriff's office was duly notified and Chief Deputy Frank Schmidt, and deputies Demos Nicholas, Har- Ian Voumard and Randy Robbs arrived at the station later that morning. A search warrant signed by Magistrate Judge Harold 0. Gwillim was obtained and read to Nolan, Nicholas testified. Nolan was advised of his rights. "Any evidence they claimed to have secured is a violation of my constitutional rights," Nolan interjected at the hearing and was overruled by Judge Welch. Nicholas said that the search produced several radios, office equipments, a loaded .38 - caliber pistol, and "dangerous drugs" including "Demeral, a narcotic." Under questioning by Asst. State's Attorney Larry Keshner, Nicholas said the equipment and drugs were in the truck while four inches of the gun barrel was ton Cemetery, exposed under the right front seat. Robbs and Voumard took the stand and corroborated Nicholas' testimony. Nicholas said that two doctors for from the Medical Park identified some of the items that were taken from their offices. Nolan in his own defense said, "I have had no opportunity to prepare . . . and have no counsel to prepare for me." The ex - convict demanded that both the $15,000 bond be reduced and he be appointed a public defender. Judge Welch scheduled an indigency hearing as to whether Nolan could afford to pay for an attorney or not for Wednesday afternoon. The judge did not reduce bond. The ex-convict also questioned the police officers and sheriff's deputies when they were on the stand, all the while objecting to the so-called illegality of the proceedings. "I will file a petition for habeas corpus if I have to do it myself," Nolan said in departing for his jail cell. Allen Chapel Society Honors Joseph Berry Joseph N.
