THIS 6 RESULTS in - a curious
ambivalence on the part of the
University itself over what kind
of an institution it wants to be.
At the moment, it seems uncer-
tain whether it should lower its

overall standards so as to, cope
with increasing numbers of col-
lege-age students, or whether to
remain the same size and make
up for the difference in greatly in-
creased quality.
If the University were a private
institution, there would be little
doubt that the increased quality

alternative would be chosen. But
the University is not a free agent.
Constitutional commitments to
the state and legislative pressure
force it to expand enrollment at
the admitted cost of quality. A
community unsure of its own
eventual goals cannot hope to
firmly resist outside pressure.

Smeekens received only 38 votes.
J. ULTIMATELY,, there are only{
three solutions to the problem:
un-gerrymandering the legislative
districts so that ,the conservative
wing of the Republican party does
not hold an amount of power vast-
ly disproportionate to their sup-
port; the success of the liberal
wing of the party; or the ultimate
destruction-by political suicide-
of the Republican Party. But none
of these events are in short-range
prospect .
The short-range prospects for
the state are as pessimistic for
the citizens as the long -range
prospects are for the conservative
Republicans. There is not likely to
be any solution to the cash-short-
age problem until after the April
6 elections - the Republicans in

THIS PROBLEM is further ag-
gravated by the traditional na-
ture of the function of the Presi-
dent-of thecUniversity.
His office has functioned as
chief of the administrative body,
responsible for the most impor-
tant decision-making. But this is
not as it should be for the op-
timum development of a flourish-
ing university spirit.
The University is large and
amorphous enough as it is, and
it has suffered greatly thereby.
It should be for the president, the
head of the university commu-
nity, to set its intellectual and
philosophical tone, and to engage
in the longest range creative plan-
ning and thinking about the ul-
timate goals and meaning of the

which it can develop. The nature

should enable the President of the

Misquotes .. .
To the Editor:
I'M SURE The Daily will want to
correct a few misquotes which
appeared on Saturday's second
page article concerning my cam-
paign speeches at Mary Markley
and Tyler.
The Daily quotes me as having
said at Markley that "Dean Ba-
con is a frequent stumbling block
and should be eliminated from the
SGC Board of Review." I told the
Markley audience that SGC
should first give more responsi-
bility to their own committees as
for example, the calendaring of
events, before they expect the ad-
ministration or faculty to delegate
them a larger realm of power.
Afterwards, I mentioned that the
Board of Review should Abe
changed to meet the needs pre-
sented by the Board of Review
Study Committee. I deemed it ad-
visable to remove not only the
Dean of Women but the Dean of
Men from the board and replace
them by Vice-President Lewis of
Student Affairs. Since the Dean
of Men and the Dean of Women
always have to go through Mr.
Lewis's office before a decision
can be made by them as in the
Sigma Kappa issue, why ispn't the
person in charge of student af-
fairs on the board?
The Daily further quotes me as
having said, "Students should ex-
press opinions on faculty sal-
aries." I've always maintained the
belief that faculty salaries are out

of the student's role in college
policy-making. I distinctly re-
membered telling the women at
Markley that students have no
right, in discussing or determining
faculty salaries as they are pres-
ently doing in regards to coaches
salaries on the Board in Control
of Inter-Collegiate Athletics.
The final misquote was from a
speech given at Tyler House. I
was quoted as having said, "I pre-
fer graduate students on commit-
tees of boards in control and cur-
riculum." I never used the wordI
"prefer.", I firmly stated that if
a graduate student offered the
experience and ability that Dave
Kessel gave to the Board of Con-
trol of Student Publications then
I couldn't see any reason why an
interested grad student couldn't
serve on boards in control or cur-
riculum committees. I also quali-
fled the statement by adding that
said committees that deal entirely
in the realm of undergraduate
functions should have committees
wholly of undergraduate students.
