The sun shines brightly as you
get up to attend your first class
in 1977. You walk down the hill
from Stockwell and cross busy
Forest Avenue on a broad pedes-
trian overpass. You pass under
the dental library overhanging
North University Street and turn
down the expansive mall that runs
from Rackham to the steps of the
general library.
After taking freshman compo-
sition in the former administration
building, you relax in the tree-
ringed mini-park that was former-
ly a parking lot in front of the
There have been a lot of changes
in the physical University campus
before 1977. Many of these changes
were intended to shape the stu-
dents' pattern of living in relation
to the part of campus where they
spend their waking hours. The
masterminding of the central cam-
pus goes back to 1963 when plan-
ning consultants Johnson, John-
son and Roy presented the Re-
gents with copies of the Central

Campus Planning Study.
"This guiding concept orients
future campus development around
major thoroughfare systems,"
John G. McKevitt, assistant to the
vice president and chief financial
officer. "The 'sub-campus' concept
was one of the most important
ideas in the study."
By the time the class of '78 grad-
uates, enrollment at the Ann Ar-
bor campus will have swelled to
40,000 students. Campus planners
early faced the inevitable break-
away of outward projections of the
centra campus such as North Cam-
pus and the athletic grounds. To
preserve the "singular image" of
the University they decided to or-
ganize sub-sections of the cam-
pus around major academic in-
terests and to create a transport
system to bridge the large dis-
tances involved.
"The sub-campus concept was
chosen to give greatest opportunity
for accommodating the constantly
changing University while realizing
the desirability of creating small,
comprehensive zones of activity

to which students can relate as in-
dividuals," said University Archi-
tect Howard Hakken.
The centers of each sub-cam-
pus around the central quad will
be located at these approximate
sites: the Rackham mall, the
Physics and Astronomy mall; the
grounds between the old dental
building and North Hall; the area
between the architecture and the
business administration schools;
and the mall south of the SAB.
Some of the open spaces which
act as a focus for surrounding
buildings have already material-
ized. The P&A mall is an example,
Another concurrent project is

terns, being carried out under

rector James F. Brinkerhoff with

Washtenaw Avenue is slated to
be closed off as a direct route to
the central campus. Preliminary
plans and sketches will be released
in about two months that will

Three-Year Fund Drive To Address

As the University's $55 Million
Development Fund draws its
three year drive to a close, it can
boast of raising an impressive $70
million, the largest amount ever
raised in a capital campaign by
a public institution.
However, in the course of the
drive, a scant $36,107 of the $1.8
million needed for the Residential

Sinnott of the engineering college
and chairman of the faculty ad-
visory committtee on planning.
With $75 million now under con-
struction and $200 million slated
for the next decade, land is be-
coming a premium on the central
campus. Future buildings will tend
to be vertical structures resting
on relatively little ground. In-
tensive use of open space with in
the sub-campuses will be vital.
"By contrast, the medical cen-
ter's growth in the next 40 years
will be tremendously urban in
character. Open space will be less
expensive, more internally devel-
oped and valuable for the contrast
it provides," Brinkerhoff said.

LANSING A) -- Gov. George
Romney yesterday asked the Legis-
lature to reorganize Michigan's
lower court system, raise gasoline
h and motor vehicle taxes, deal with
urban problems and create a state
police reserve at its special fall
However, as expected, Romney's
special message to the Legislature
--outlining subjects to be con-
sidered-excluded a general in-
crease in state school aid which
is sought by the state's educators.
Romney's message included 12
general subjects and promised
that at least one other-a state-
wide open housing law-is being
considered for possible introduc-
tion in a subsequent message.
The governor also asked for an
additional $600,000 for the State
Civil Rights Commission and an
appropriation of $5 million for the
education of underprivileged chil-
In addition, Romney-empower-
ed by the Constitution to call a
special session and name the topics
,to be taken up-asked that state
housing laws be corrected to pro-
vide for a state housing develop-
ment authority, and that legisla-
tion be approved-providing for
preparation of development plans
for blighted areas,
In detail, Romney asked action
on the following:
* School Aid-Romney recom-
mends a $5 million appropriation
for school aid to districts with
deprived children; but no general1
increase in the state school aid
* Lower Courts-A new limited-
jurisdiction should be established
to replace justice courts, abolished
by the new Constitution in 1969.
Romney recommends courts of
record, adequately paid lawyer-
judges and "adequate revenue"

session, will be back before theI

# State Salaries-Romney rec-
ommends a $2,897, 749 appropria-I
tion to help certain state depart-
ments implement a pay raise for'
civil service employes.
t Planning-Lawmakers will be
asked to merge existing agencies
into a state office of planning
coordination, which would be in
the executive office.
* Expressways-Romney wants
a law to prevent local communities
from vetoing freeway routes.
* Rubbish-The recommenda-
tion is to clarify the law to make
certain that townships may con-
tract with private corporations for
disposal of rubbish as well as gar-
Romney told the lawmakers that

sage "and possible subsequent
