HATS OFF--OR ON--TO THE JUNIOR COLLEGE.
MCPHERSON, ELIZABETH
AN INCIDENT AT ONE JUNIOR COLLEGE AND THE ENSUING CONTROVERSY OVER WHETHER OR NOT STUDENTS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO WEAR HATS IN CAMPUS BUILDINGS IS USED AS AN EXAMPLE OF A MORE SERIOUS ISSUE CONCERNING THE JUNIOR COLLEGE'S RELATION TO THE COMMUNITY IT SERVES. THE ISSUES DISCUSSED CONCERN THE DEGREE TO WHICH A COMMUNITY COLLEGE CAN BE RESPONSIVE TO COMMUNITY NEEDS AND STILL BOTH MAINTAIN EDUCATIONAL SELF-RESPECT AND PROVIDE AN ATMOSPHERE OF INTELLECTUAL FERMENT. THE POSITION OF THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT AND THE NATURE OF LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE WHICH LEADS NATURALLY TO INTELLECTUAL FERMENT ARE DISCUSSED. THE NEED FOR TECHNICAL, REMEDIAL, AND NON-TRANSFER ENGLISH COURSES CONCERNED WITH IDEAS ARE EMPHASIZED. (BN)
