"When these students are ex-
posed on the job, they win ac-

Dearborn also participates in
an exchange with Tuskegee In-
stitute. Juniors at Tuskegee who
have proven academic ability can
enter the co-operative program
which provides them with a job,
income and eventually a degree.
The campus' enrollment contin-
ues to increase along with need
for expansion. Planning money
has been authorized for a new
300,000 volume library which will
cost around $2%/ million,
Portable athletic facilities have
been set up at the campus.
"Only budgetary limitations
prevent the campus from increas-
ing the present rate of develop-
ment and expanding graduate as
well as undergraduate programs,"
Stirton says.
Last year Dearborn suffered a
housing shortage and planned
construction of three new hous-
ing units, but additional housing
became available in the city of
Dearborn. i
Since many students spend half'
their time away from Dearborn
working, short leases are neces-
Stirton attributes the solution
of the housing problem to the in-
creasing acceptance of the cam-

pus and short leases by residents
of Dearborn.
Only one University - owned
housing unit is in operation at
Dearborn, which accomodates 106
students. First preference is mar-
ried couples.
Operating funds for the cam-
pus come from the University's
general budget, as do funds for
all branches.
Stirton is titled director of the
campus, but Scott will take over
as dean. The Regents changed the
Dearborn arrangement last year
to a system like the one used for
Flint college.
Dearborn is centered around
Fair Lane, former estate of Henry
Ford. The original four buildings
were donated in 1957 by business
and industry at a cost of $10
million. Principal donor was the
Ford Motor Co.
Because course work is at the
professional or graduate level, all
instruction is conducted by spe-
cially selected senior faculty with
experience in teaching advanced
courses. Teaching loads are lighter
than at most colleges of compar-
able size.
Dearborn alsooffers some eight
week courses in concurrence with
the summer term for part-time
graduate students, primarily in
education and industry.

If the stir the issue caused last
year is any indication, the ques-
* tion of who shall conduct job re-
cruiting on campus and how they
will do it will remain an area of
controversy this year.
If the University can be called
the producer of future leaders,
then the Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information is
A its marketplace.
Last year nearly 3000 busi-
nesses, governmental agencies and
schools came to the University
looking for personnel to fill 20,-
000 positions. Over 2500 students
and faculty applied to the place-
ment office for job interviews.
But traditionally business like
operation of the Bureau has been
convulsed by policy questions in
recent months.
The intensification of the Viet-
nam war effort and the conse-
quent rise in anti-war sentiment
has resulted in numerous student
demonstrations across the nation
protesting recruiters from com-
panies associated with the war.
The University has been forced
to re-examine its relationship
with the several corporations and
government agencies that have
4 been the subject of violent student
The situation presented a di-
lemma to the University; for while
it wants to avoid the kind of dis-
ruptions which have occurred
elsewhere, the University is high-
ly sensitive to the public reaction
which might occur if these con-
troversial recruiters were exclud-
ed from campus.
The University ,has attempted
to diminish the recruiting prob-
lem during the past year by the
introduction of public forums
where controversial recruiters can
explain and defend their policies.
The forum was first utilized No-
vember 8, 1967 following a morn-
ing-long non-disruptive protest
against Dow Chemical Co. by law
students. The forum featured a
debate between three law school
faculty members plus the Dow re-
I cruiter.
Speaking before an overflow
crowd of 500 students, Profs. Jo-
seph Sax, Alfred Conrad, and
Dean Frances Allen, all of the
law school, debated whether stu-
dents should use their protests
against campus recruiters to voice
opposition to administration for-
eign policy.
The University's public forums
originated from a Voice-SDS pro-
posal that controversial recruiters
be "required" to participate in
these open discussions of their
organization's policies.
Fleming agreed vigorously to
the principle of holding open for-
ums, but it was clear he was op-
posed to the stipulation that such
forums be made mandatory. Flem-
ing told Voice members he had
received similar suggestions from
faculty members and members of
Graduate Assembly.
But not all segments of the Uni-
versity. agreed with the plan. On
February 14, Engineering Council
circulated' a petition protesting
the placement of any restrictions
on meetings with recruiters. Near-
ly 1400 signatures were collected.
Wally Rhines, '68E, president of
the council, said the purpose of
the petition was "to draw atten-
