English" has drawn 27 participants from
The six-week program, run under the
Xaticnal Defense Education Act, ends
July 15. It is directed by Dr. Silas Griggs
of the English faculty.
The institute, for elementary school
language arts teachers, is meant to pro-
vide a "mastery of facts about the struc-
ture of English that have a direct bear-
ing on the design and implementation
of elementary language arts curricula,"
Dr. Griggs said.
He said the emphasis will be on con-

Fall of 1968
The proposed new Language liuilding,
to be located on the northeast corner of
the campus at the site now occupied by
the old Science Building, will be complet-
ed for the 1908 fall term.
The date was confirmed June 2 as the
Board of Regents accepted a construction
bid of $1,018,000 from James T. Taylor
6 Son of Fort Worth,, the company now
completing the $2 million Biology Build-
ing on campus.
The new Language Building, equipped
with the most modern audio-visual teach-
ing aids, will be perhaps the most com-
plete language facility in the region.
In addition to four complete language
laboratories, there will be provisions for
a fifth one for future use. Each room
will be included in a loudspeaker system
originating in a central control room and
will have a closed circuit TV cable. The
Language Building, like the new Speech
Building, will be on a coaxial cable tying
it to the National Educational Television
Dr. Philip Smyth, director of the de-
partment of foreign languages, said the
visual aids will let students observe the
se.ting of a conversation as they hear
it, thus giving it more meaning. The
additional space the new building af-
fords will allow smaller classes and
have excellent acoustics, problems the
language department has had to face in
the existing facilities, Dr. Smyth also
Until the language department has
expanded to an enrollment of 5,000 stu-
dents, the capacity of the new building,
it will share its new quarters with the
The Board of Regents also approved
07 academic appointments, expanding the
faculty by 45, and accepted a bid of
$37,344 from Taylor & Son for the com-
pletion of the Union Building basement.
The space will be utilized for an expan-
sion of the Univei-sity Store and to pro-
vide locker space for commuting students.
The Language Building is one of 23
covered in the Mater Plan, which was
announced May 8. The plan is set up to
let the school handle an enrollment of
20,000 (expected by 1972), with expan-
sion to 30,000.
Under the Master Plan, the campus
will be pedestrian-oriented, with em-
phasis on a pedestrian squaie bounded
by Sycamore, Highland and Avenues A
Traffic would be prohibited in the
Students who drive to the campus
would park in lots on the perimeter.

909 Graduate, Hear
Criticism of Triviality
Nine hundred and nine graduates re-
ceived degrees June 2 as North Texas
held its 77th annual commencement ex-
cercises. There were 772 candidates for
bachelor's degrees, 124 for master's and
13 for doctoral degrees.
With the strains of graduation music
scarcely over, registration opened Mon-
day or. campus for the first summer
session with a record numl>er of students
Enrollment hit 7,020 at noon Thurs-
day. This compares with a record 7,001
for last year's summer session. Regis-
tration will close Saturday.
President J. C. Matthews spoke brief-
ly at the commencement. He told the
graduates the decision to attend college
istration procedures and registration
forms may be obtained at the Guidance
Office or from the Educational TcstJT
Service in Princeton, N.J.
Federal Grant Creates
Five Library Fellowships
Dr. Robert B. Toulouse, graduate dean,
announced that five graduate fellowships
of $2,200 for the academic year and $450
for the summer term will be awarded for
the fall semester for graduate training
for public or school librarians.
The fellowships, made possible by a
$32,600 grant from the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare, are avail-
able to full-time graduate students who
may apply their work to training for
public or school libraries.
The fellowships will pay tuition fees
and some travel expense if the student
lives ...ore than 100 miles away.
The North Texas department of jour-
nalism has received accreditation from
the American Council on Education for
C. E. Shuford, department director,
said the accreditation is specifically for
NTSU's news-editorial sequence of train-
ing. He added that only five other Tex-
as schools are accredited: the University
of Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, TCU
and the University of Houston.
"The American Council on Education
for Journalism," Shuford said, "repre-
sents both educational and professional
organizations in the field of journalism
and is the formally recognized agency
for the accreditation of programs for
professional education in journalism in
institutions of higher learning in the
Shuford added that in meeting
the ACEJ standards for its news-editor-
ial sequence, the NTSU department of
journalism had received the approval of
the accrediting agency that judges the
adequacy of journalism education in this
The ACEJ sent a visitation team to
spend two days on the North Texas cam-
pus in February. After observing class-
room procedure and talking to faculty
members, students and administrators,
the team made its report to the full
ACEJ accrediting committee.
Shuford was notified of the accredita-
tion by letter from John E. Stempel,
ACEJ secretary-treasurer, in which he
called attention to the accrediting
team's "observation of the fine morale
in the faculty and student body, and the
rapport with the press of the area."
Dr. Martin Gets
Dr. Charles B. Martin of the English
faculty has received a Fulbright grant
to teach English at the University of
Sevilla, Spain, this fall and next spring.
About 2,500 U.S. citizens get Ful-
bright grants each year and 6,000 stu-
dents and teachers from other countries
come to the United States under the
program. Fulbright grants are part of
an educational and cultural exchange
program designed to increase mutual
understanding between nations.
Grants are made for university lec-
turing, advanced research, graduate stu
dy, teaching in elementary and second-
ary schools, experience in special fields
and consultation and observation.
Dr. Martin, who has been at North
Texas three years, spent the summer of
1955 in Europe and the summer of 1959
should not be based on increasing earn-
ing potential, but as an alternative to
DR. MATTHEWS SAID, "I have never
placed much credence in going to college
to be able to get more money. In many
cases this will be the result . . . (but)
there are some results from going to
college which will make the accumulation
of wealth pale into insignificance."
"I think of going to college as an al-
ternative to triviality, as the developer
of judgment and as a re-shaper of goals,"
Dr. Matthews said. "Of course, one
should have some fun, a sense of humor
and time for relaxation, but college
should lift us above the mediocrity of
devoting our lives to trivial things."
Some of this uplift from mediocrity
he said, conies from enjoying a great
friendship with a professor, marveling
that the concepts of freedom as we know
them today were so well conceived 2,400
years ago that they sound as if they
were written yesterday, or having music,
poetry or art "lift you to appreciations
which defy analysis."
Dr. Matthews said a distinguished ed-
ucator once said, "Moral education is
impossible apart from the habitual vision
of greatness." Then he added, "I know
it is not easy to maintain a consistent
standard of excellence, or to be charac-
terized as one 'born for whatever is
"MEN AND WOMEN need help in
making choices, for we do not have a
built-in certainty of how excellency is to
come . . . (but) as the years go by, I
hope integrity and good judgment may
characterize your every act, and that in
some measure you will feel that North
Texas State University has had a part."
Degree candidates included 11 who
received doctorates of education and two
who received Ph.Ds.
The candidates for the Ed.D. were
Billy Earl Askins, Mrs. Beverly Ray
Bradbury and Mrs. June Juree Garrett,
all of Fort Worth; William W. Hamilton
of Arlington; Gerald B. Pratt of Rich-
ardson; Raymond C. Allred of Gaines-
