Commenting further on the ex-
isting lack of space and the pres-
ent rate of enrollment increase,
the students said "it is obvious
that plans must be made for ex-
pansion of facilities."
"The need for additional build-
ings on North Campus to house
junior, senior and graduate stu-
dents," Jocz and Martens main-
tain, "is quite obvious at the pres=-
ent time and more obvious for the
The students' views were
prompted by ,the engineering col-
lege's recent Space Study and
Recommendations report which
shows the college now has 4,090
students, 12 per cent more than
the recommended maximum, which
was reached in 1955.
To accommodate the expected
8,600 students in 1970, the North
Campus Planning Committee has
established a building schedule
which, if the state allots sufficient
funds, will provide the space the
faculty study has determined to
be necessary to conduct the re-
quired educational programs.
The funds requested still provide
less space ,per student and faculty
members than recommended by
the Michigan Council of State
College Presidents in a report sub-
mitted in 1955. t
In light of these facts, Glenn V.
Edmonson, associate-dean of the
engineering college, said "very ser-
ious problems in respect to both
faculty and space exist because of
the increased numbers of students,
the greater demand on educational
programs and the increased num-
ber of advanced students."
The ratio of upperclassmen and
graduates to freshmen and sopho-
mores is rising, he explained, due
to the increasing numbers enroll-
ing in junior and liberal arts col-
leges for their first two or three
This puts an increasing burden
on the University, he commented,
to supply adequate laboratory
space for advanced work.
Fifty students have requested
to take part in the Student Gov-
ernment Council's Summer Read-
ing and Discussion Program,
Roger Seasonwein, '61, said.
Students will be sent reading
lists for the seven areas selected
for this year's program during the
summer. They can read the books
in any area they wish and discuss
them in seminars with faculty
leaders next fall.
Dean Earl V. Moore of the mu-
sic school will receive an honorary
Doctor of Laws degree from East-
ern Michigan University on June
13 at the commencement pro-
Dean Moore received the Artist
Diploma in Organ from the Uni-
versity in 1910, a bachelor of arts
degree in 1912 and a master's de-
gree in 1913.
The dean also studied in Italy,
Germany and London.
He was head of the organ and
theory departments at the music,
school before its affiliation with
the University. After the merger,
Dean Moore served first as an in-
structor, became assistant profes-
sor in 1919, professor and director
in 1923 and dean of the music
school in 1946.
Alpha Gamma Delta and Theta
Sigma Upsilon fraternities for
women have announced a merger
to take effect June 29.
The new organization will use
the Alpha Gamma Delta mono-
gram, with 13 Theta Sigma Upsi-
lon chapters changing theirs. To-
tal membership will total about
Alpha Gamma Delta, interna-
tional in scope and character, was
founded in 1904 at Syracuse Uni-
versity, while Theta Sigma Upsi-
lon, an "education" sorority, was
initiated in 1921.
Both groups have charitable
programs, Alpha Gamma Delta
being interested particularly in
cerebral palsy treatment and
Theta Sigma Delta in the treat-
ment of cleft palate children.
Chapters of Alpha Gamma Del-
ta are located at the University,
