Credit No Carrying Charge Teaching Valuable Only As People learn. New U. A. President Says Sixth Annual Gaebale Observed Al The University Dr. .Tnhn Tyler Caldwell, ncw- ly-elcptcd president of the University, who visited her* Saturday, said at an afternoon press conference that teaching Is valuable only as the people taught learn or profit from it. Thus he I .fa'vors an educational program which Is patterned on th* Interest and aptitude «nd growth of the individual who will learn, rather than on preconceived notions of what should be taught, W h o . Is doing the learning 1« the 'Important thing, he asserted. The press and radio representatives met the new president in hi« office. W. .1. Good, public relations director of the University, sat in on the session. -Dr. Caldweli, who will take over as president July 1 after he has completed duties at Alabama College for Women 'where he Is the retiring president, said that it IE his belief that the interest, aptitude and development of th students should decide the .curriculum to. be offered, -and made it clear .that he believes In a "flexible curriculum." What may be good for some students In their , freshman or spphomore years, he jsaid; may he better lor others in | their junior or senior years. '· He admitted that such a pro- Jrram-as. he outlined would mean adequate guidance must be provided. This would take time, effort and money, but woUld be worth it he said. Through such i program the school could move away from the evils of mass production, the new president said, and give more attention to the individual. Most programs, have presumed he declared, that the student is the object of education. Rather ' he is the subject, to Dr. Caldwell's way of thinking, and the system I qt education should be patterned to his needs--not the student pat' turned to the system of education. He spoke highly of the flexibility of the program now offered !at the University. He said that the "richness of offerings" 'indicated In the catalogue of the University, shows that the schnol can "take : cnrc of the needs oi about 99 per i cent of the students in the United 1 States." That Is, he elaborated, the ' University offers a wide choice of courses which would meet the needs of « large segment of to- '.dfly'r, .student*. Disciiitafcs Athletics Asked about his sentiments us i regards intercollegiate . athletics Dr. Caldweli explained that he is a believer in .intercollegiate athletics, and sees the. program as-a psrt of the education system of today: .But, he stressed, he be- lleVes In it only so long- as it does not impinge the integrity of the school or of the students. As for scholarships, he said he feels "It is ridiculous to give a football pl»yer more, just because he can play football, than a Phi Beta Kappa student for his ability." He spoke out highly in favor of icholarshlps, but said a scholarship based solely on tho athletic prowess of a student is not justi- i'irt. He recalled that the University of Nebraska has .published a list of the scholarships it offers, and said he would favor a Southwest Conference ruling cSlllng for the publication of the scholarships offered by conference schools. A fine program of Intramural athletics is desirable, he asserted, and said the intramural program should not have to depend on the intercollegiate program for financial help. While "it is absurd to talk about getting rid of an intercollegiate athletic program," "He declared, "the intercollegiate athletic 'program should conic within the main purpose of trio institution." He said he- looks forward to a successful football season at ih« Hazorback school this coming fall. · .,· Program 01 Credit Restraint Dropped Washington - (/P) - The Federal Reserve Bo'ard -tdday dropped ils voluntary credit restraint program --a program designed to. curb lending and help flgh't inflation.
