The joint degree program is
planned for integration with the
change from a five to a six year
architecture program approved by
the Regents this June.
The new six year program will
consist of a two-year pre-profes-
sional program and a four-year
architectural curriculum.
Degree Option
If the proposed joint degree pro-
gram is approved by the literary
college faculty, students in the six
year program will have the option
of taking a degree in architecture
only or taking a degree from the
literary college and the College of
Architecture and Design. The main
difference between the joint de-
gree and the architecture only de-
gree is that the joint degree can-
didates would elect a major in the
literary college instead of just
taking general courses.
Starting , in 1969, Wehrer ex-
plained, students will be accepted
only for the last four years of
their studies in architecture-no
freshnan will be accepted. Stu-
dents 'entering the program will
have had 2 years of liberal arts
from a junior college of four-year
Preparations Under Way
Preparations for the six year
program are all ready being made,
according to Wehrer, through re-
organization of the present archi-
tecture programs at a "higher
level." The architecture depart-
ment had recognized the need for
courses at a higher level before
the six year or joint degree pro-
grams were proposed..

'U' Regents Meet;
Bentley Returns
Pierpont Hopeful That Collective
Bargaining Will Speed Court Case
Regent Alvin Bentley returned to the Board of Regents yesterday
after a seven month absence due to illness. In their first meeting of
the academic year the Regents touched on the current labor contro-
versy, but moved on to academic changes.
Wilbur K. Pierpont, vice president and chief financial officer
told the Regents yesterday the University's conditional agreement
to collective bargaining with employes "will hopefully accelerate the
court case."
The University will, according to Thursday night's statement,
"follow the procedures under Public Act 379, including representation
elections and collective bargaining, until the court has acted."
The University has agreed to hold representation elections and
engage in collective bargaining as soon as the State Labor Mediation
Board issues its decision on the appropriate number of bargaining
units for the school.
But since the University and the workers were unable to agree
on collective bargaining, the SL- -

To Integrate Formal Rush

MB was unsure of its jurisdiction.
It chose to wait for a court de-
cision on representation. But now
that the University and union
have agreed to bargain the SLMB
has agreed to make a decision
on the representation question
next week.
Tradesmen Returning
Pierpont reported that the 200
skilled tradesmen who began a
walkout halting $68 million worth
of construction projects would be
at work again on Monday.
In other action, the Regents ac-
cepted over $1 million in gifts
which were received between July
19 and August- 23. The board
also adopted a projected budget
of $914,000, which includes archi-
tects' fees and construction on the
final phase of renovation of the
Michigan League.
Landscaping to Phase Out
A proposal to phase out the un-
dergraduate program in landscape
architecture and emphasize grad-
uate professional training in the
field over the next four years was
approved by the Regents.
The board officially approved the
appointment of Russell A. Fraser
as chairman of the English de-
partment. Fraser will replace re-

Although the graduate school
is largely male, many of the stu-
dents hold full time deferable jobs

the vacated places.

Although "nothing is going to
create miracles," a new step was
taken towards a fully integrated
sorority rush this year, according
to Panhellenic Association Exe-
cutive Vice-President Linda Sloan,
For the first time Negro fresh-!
men girls were individually con-
tacted by either Miss Sloan or
Panhel President Ginny Mochel,
'68 and asked to seriously con-
sider registering for formal rush.
If a girl undertakes formal rush
she is required to go through
mixers at 21 chapters, none of
which have Negro members.
The two remaining chapters are
included only by option in the
rush program but Panhel en-
couraged all rushes to include
these chapters in their schedules,
said Mochel. They have all-Negro
memberships on this campus but
are integrated nationally.
"Last year we encouraged Negro
girls to try formal rush, but we
only communicated by word-of
mouth. This year we visited the
dorms and talked with girls face
to face," Miss Sloan said.
"Many girls said they had never
even thought about formal rush-
it just hadn't occured to them";
Miss Sloan noted, "others weren't
sure they wanted to join any
sorority their first year."
"The results aren't appreciably
greater than last year, in terms
of Negro girls rushing white
houses," she added, "But you can't
expect a huge break-through the
first year something new is tried."
The two all-Negro sororities
have announced changes in their
rush schedule this year to "de-

velop more unity" with the rush
program of the other twenty-one
Last year the Negro chapters
held mixers during the afternoon.
This interfered with girls' classes
and "created a feeling of separ-
ateness between their rush and
the other 21 sororities," she said.
To make it more convenient for
girls to rush the Negro sororities
this fall, forty-five minutes were
set aside directly preceding each
night of mixer parties.
During this time, because their
chapters don't have houses, the

Negro members rushed in frater-
nity houses.
After mixers in previous years
the Negro chapters rushed on var-
ious other areas around campus
such as the Union, the Student
Activities Building and class-
The membership in both Negro
sororities is approximately 30
women, half the size of most white
chapters. In the past because of
every smaller membership theI
Negro sorority women were as-
sisted in the rushing process by
actives from other chapters."

Colleges in State Experience
Easing Enrollment Pressures

From Wire Service Reports
There are 1000 unfilled places
in the state's colleges this fall.
Although colleges and universi-
ties in the state will have to han-
dle nearly 90 per cent more stu-
dents this year than they did in
1960. a recent report notes that
enrollment pressures seem to be
easing as the surge of "war bab-
ies" subsides.
At the end of August the Mich-
igan Department of Education be-
gan a program to match "school-
less students with student-shy
schools." They reported more than
1000 places available and yet so
far have had only about 75 inquir-
ies from students looking for
places to study.
Ronald J. Jursa, director of the
program, declined to give a list of
the vacancies. He said, however,

that most are at private and com-
munity colleges, with "practically
none" at Michigan's 11 state-sup-
ported universities.
This gap between the number
of freshman openings and the stu-,
dents waiting to fill them, has
been attributed to several differ-
ent causes.
Dr. Ed Pfau, director of special
services for the department, noted
that among the causes of the vac-
ancies are students who apply to
schools and become disgusted upon
rejection. They stop trying and get
a job, he explained; "they don't
realize there are a lot of places
where they could still go to col-
Other possibilities are that this
year's niatch-up idea came too
late. The spaces may be available
at institutions too far away from
prospective freshmen or where
they simply do not want to go. The
draft and tuition increase may
also have cut down on the num-
ber of students in a position to at-
tend college.

Where will students go next?I
Despite the fact that births have
declined steadily in the last 10
years, a greater share of high
school graduates want and can af-
ford a college education, either
through their own means or gov-
ernment financial aid, the report
Robert Cahow, the executive
secretary of the Michigan Council
of Administrators, explained the
cause as what he calls the "open
door policy" of the local schools,
their wide range of academic and
vocational curricula, their low
average tuition rate of $240, and
the easy access to the two-year
The number of community col-
leges as well as the total number
of students attending them has
risen steadily. There will be 24
such colleges enrolling about
74,000 students this fall as com-
pared with 16 colleges serving
28,552 in 1960.


To Rise on New APA Pr

nor tm

"APA-Phoenix Repertory Week"
has been proclaimed Sept. 18-24
by Ann Arbor's mayor Wendell
Hulcher. The proclamation honors
the success of this season's Asso-
ciation of Producing Artists, which
has been dubbed "a bride with a
million dollar dowry."
Opening its sixth season of pro-
ductions at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre next week, the reper-
tory company this summer was

APA members will use the
money over a three year period
to attract new designers, direc-
tors, and players to its ranks and
to purchase stage equipment.

Needs Financial Aid
Largely responsible for the
APA's success, "Mother" Cisney
says that a repertory company
can't exist without outside finan-
cial assistance.
"The goal of a theatre of this
quality is not to make a profit,"
she explains. "It's to bring the
finest drama to audiences and to,
give them the benefit of some ar-
tistic experiments. We must be
able to take financial risks."
Such "risks" have included
Giraudoux's "Judith" and the
stage version of "War and Peace,"
which traveled from Ann Arbor to
New York in 1964.
"Repertory theatres are like
symphonies or ballets," Miss Cis-
ney continues. "They need subsi-
