(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth
in a series that will explore the ex-
tent and character of retention,
transfer and withdrawal of students
from. colleges and universities. It is-
based on a report released by the
Office of Education of the United
States Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare.)
By SELMA SAWAYA
Data on each student's home lo-
cation, housing situation, frater-
nity or sorority affiliation, and
extracurricular activities were all
studied to determine'their rela-
tion to the individual's record of
persistence in college.
The report found that students
who lived within convenient daily
traveling distance of the schools
which they attended had poorer
persistence' records, on the aver-
age, tha n did students who lived
beyond a convenient traveling dis-
tance.
However, the report continued,
location of home was so closely
related to the 'type. of institution
the student attended that no in-
ference of causal relationship
could be made.
Finds Housing Relationship
In the case of housing arrange-
ments, though, the report did find
a relationship between the stu-
dent's living accommodations and
the degree of persistence in col-
lege.
It was found that students who
resided in the college community
had a significantly better persis-
tence "record than had students
who lived with parents, relatives
or friends.
'-Affiliation with social fraterni-
ties or sororities had different ef-
fects on men and women. On one
hand, male graduates who be-
longed to social fraternities re-
ceived slightly lower 'grades than
did men graduates who were not
members.
Affiliates Get Higher Gradse
However, women graduates-who
had been members of sororities re-
ceived significantly higher grades
than did their female unaffiliated
contemporaries.
Persistence until graduation was
clearly associated with fraternity
or sorority membership, the report
said. Institutions which , had no
recognized affiliate groups had a
significantly lower graduation
rate than did institutions in which
an opportunity for some type of
affiliation was available.
Over the period of the four
years covered in the study, the
Office compiled, as -part of the
data, mortality rates on students
in the ntering class of 1950. It
was found that if women attend-
ing institutions having sororities
were not members of a national
social sorority, they were more
likely to leave the institution
than the ones- who were not mem-
bers.
Women Tell Reasons
"G ls, particularly," the re-
port continued, "commented on
reasons for transfer or discontinu-
ance saying that they had not
been able to join the organization
of their choice."
Extra-curricular activities, as
a factor influencing a student's
persistence, were found to have no
relation to length of time in coi-
lege.
The only correlation found be-'
tween activities was the fact that
students who participate in stu-
dent government activities have a
significantly better record of per-

S IT R EALLY IS...
ARE CALLED

By JOHN FISCHER
The University television office
;ries to further creativity on the
part of' its staff writers by giving
them considerable liberty, Hazen
Schumacher, assistant director of
television, said.
He emphasized the importance
of the individual's creativity. The
producer, director, graphics and
staging men, working in their in-
dividual offices b7efore production
neetings, are essential for a pro-
aram to do its best teaching job,
he said.
Schumacher explained that cre-
ativity came more from individu-
als working alone than from group
conference-
Opposes Individual Sacrifice
He opposed decisions that sacri-
ficed individual creativity to group
unity.
To further creativity, producers
are given econsiderable liberty in
their program assignments. Al-
though their purpose is to bring
the "resources of a great univer-
sity" to the public through tele-
Panel, To Tall
On Finances
Of Michiga n
"Can Michigan's financial diffi-
culties be solved?" is the topic of
a panel discussion at ':30 p.m.
today in Aud. C, Angell Hall.
The . discussion of Michigan's
monetary program will be spon-.
sored by the Society for the Ad-
vancement of Management. lRich-
ard Slayton, '59E, said that the
SAM wants to allow the students
to gain first-hand information on
Michigan's financial difficulties
and how these difficulties will af-
fect the University's academic ex-
cellence and the citizens of this
state.
Serving on the panel will be
Sen. Lewis G. Christman (R-Ann
Arbor), Prof. Harvey Brazer of
the economics department, and
Darwin Dalcoff, of the economics
department.
Slayton explained that the
panel will be given three questions
just before the program begins.
These will act as the basis for the
discussion to follow. Following the
panel's remarks, questions from
the audience will be answered.
Judge Warns
About Tickets
Municipal Judge Francis
O'Brien issued a warning yester-
day to outstate students who have
not paid parking tickets.
Judge O'Brien said that many
students who drive cars with out-
state license plates may believe
that -their identity cannot be as-
certained and therefore do not
pay their fines.
"When fines are not paid, pink
slips are sent .out warning violat-
ors, and when enough of these
slips have been sent out, a war-
rant is made out for the violator's
arrest."
"It does take longer to deter-
mine the violator's identity than
f o r i ns t a t e violators," Judge
O'Brien continued, "but there is
a day of reckoning and arrests
are being made."

vision, they are "given their
heads" as to how they will do it.
As an example of giving the
producer-writers an almost free
rein, Schumacher pointed to a
newly-completed program by one
of the writers, Alfred Slote.
Given Program Instructions
Slote was instructed to do a
program on libraries or reading.
The normal procedure on a sub-
ject such as this is to stage an
interview with a noted librarian,
Schumacher said.
Instead of being told to "find
someone to interview on libraries"
Slote was asked just to "see what
he could do," Schumacher said. l
As a result Slote developed
something different. His program,
"Go Little Book," using visual
aids and 'actors, was filmed as a
program explaining the purposes
and advantages of books.
Get Freedom
This freedom of the producers
is considered similar to the con-
cept of academic freedom. Pro-
grams are produced with the idea
of allowing faculty members to be
able to say on television what
they say in the 'classrooms.
Administrative personnel have
little to do with the content of
the individual programs, Schu-
macher explained. No administra-
tor reads all scripts before tele-
casting; no administrator reviews
a program before it is sent to a
commercial station.
The production of programs is
the ultimate responsibility of the
producer. However, he mentioned
that these programs had one ad-
vantage. They did not feature
actors, but University faculty
members, as authorities. -
Concurs With Facts
These members help insure that
the presentation of the programs
concurs with the facts as much as
humanly possible. Schumacher
described the faculty as the back-
bone of University television pro=.
grams.
Producers and other staff mem-
bers are given as free a rein as
possible in ideas for programs.
Quite often a producer will come
up with an idea and carry it all
the way through.
The television office's emphasis
on creativity is mirrored by the
selection of most of its writers
from the University Englisli de-
partment.
"It is better to select someone
with an ability to write and train
himpossible - select aman experi-
enced in television and train him
to write," he added.
