The University's Flint branch and Flint Junior College will receive

million dollars to finance construction of the building.
Mott, who also donated a million dollars in 1957 for the building

began in 1946 with Dr. Alexander
G. Ruthven, president emeritus,
'who predicted the branching out
of the University.
Construction Starts Soon
Construction on the new library
is expected to begin.this year, since
some preliminary architectural
work has been done, according to
Dean French.
"We have been planning for
a joint library for'esome time," he
said, "but were not expecting our
good fortune so soon."
The libraries of the University
branch and Flint Junior College,
have been sharing the same head

would be able to consolidate in th l

Shoot MIGs,
Seek More
TAIPEI, Formosa {I)-National-
ist Chinese Sabre Jets swept back
over the Formosa Strait today in
search of more Red Chinese Migs
to add to the 10 reported shot
down yesterday in a giant jet air
Two more of the Russian-made
fighters were possibly destroyed
and three possibly damaged in the
swirling conflicts that raged over
more than 400 miles of the strait.
More than 100 Migs and 32
Nationalist planes were involved,
the Air Force reported, but nine
Nationalist planes did the damage.
Capt. Chien Yee Chiang was
credited with sending two Migs
screaming down into the sea and
the blazing guns of eight other
pilots brought down one each, the
Air Force said.
The toll was the greatest air
'triumph in Nationalist China's
history and one of the world's
greatest jet air victories.
On another front Nationalist
Air Force transports scored again
with a successful air drop at 8 p.m.
on Little Quemoy, six miles off
the Red China mainland and two
miles west of Quemoy. There the
improving supply picture is threat-
ening effectiveness of the Com-
munist artillery blockade.
Adm. Liu Hoh-Tu (CQ), Na-
tionalist military spokesman, said
a Red plan to lure the Nationalists
over the mainland backfired.
All of the Sabres and their
American-trained and equipped
pilots returned safely.
Re ortFire
At Hospital
Four fire trucks rushed to the
University Hospital at 11:05 p.m.
last night to put out a smoking,
short-circuited compressor.
"The only trouble, was in a
small compressor on the seventh
floor," P. H. Wenk, Ann Arbor fire
captain reported.
"It was short-circuited and
smoking," he continued. "All we
did was unplug it."
The fire department dispatched
a fog-making truck, two pumpers
and an aerial ladder truck to the
Although the machines proved
unnecessary, Capt. Wenk explained
that it was a'justifiable precaution
in view of the possibilities.
"The hospital's fire drill worked
excellently," A. R. Kurtz, night
business manager of the hospital
"If there had been a real fire,
it would never had had a chance
to develop into something serious,"'
he added.
He said that there had not been
any recent alarms at the hospital,
"but we maintain a complete fire
"Everyone was notified, nurses,
supervisors, ambulance drivers and
others, andthe firemen wre con-
ducted to the scene of the fire
within five minutes of the alarm.
The fire department reported
there was no damage to' anything
but the compressor.


Council To Reconsider Idea
Of Course Evaluation Boo





HIds Right
To Regulate
Own Affairs



Student Government Council voted to reconsider the concept of
a Student Course Evaluation Booklet when they directed the Course
Evaluation Committee to make a report of its plans and alterna-
tives at last night's Council meeting.
The report, to be made to SGC "as soon as is possible," asks
the committee to particularly study the possibility of expanding and
improving the course descriptions of the various college catalogues.
The approved motion was substituted by SGC Executive Vice-
President Dan Belin, '59, for the motion of Daily Editor Richard
Taub, '59, to dismiss the course4

evaluation book committee. TheM
motion was subsequently with-
Not Criticizing
"My motion is in no way a criti-
cism of the committee," Taub
said. He indicated that he was
against the whole concept of a
course evaluation booklet.
Under fire from Council mem-
bers as to future plans for the
booklet, Chairman of the Course
Evaluation Bonk Committee Ron
Gregg, '60, said, "if we handed out
questionnaires, we sould put out
the booklet."
The $150 spent on the project
would not be wasted, according to
Gregg, as the information derived
from last semester's question-
naires could still be used.
Kessel Refutes Claim
Gregg's claim that the Council
stipulation of a 50 per cent re-
turn of questionnaires per course
was a main reason the booklet
was not published was refuted by
David Kessel, ,Grad.
Kessel said that although the
Council had discussed the matter,
no figure had been formally set.
In a retraction, Gregg said that
it had been a committee and not
a Council ruling.
Reporting on the financial sta-
tus of the SGC-run Student Book
Exchange, Council Administrative
Vice-President Jo Hardee. '60, es-
timated the SBX stands to lose
about $50 on sales of $5000.
She said that the problem was
the difficulty in building up a
large stock of books over the sum-
mer, rather than a lack of inter-
est on the part of students.
The Council approved Nov. 11
and 12 and March 10 and 11 as
dates for the respective fall and
spring all-campus elections, as
chosen by Elections Director
Richard Erbe, '61.
An investigation of the short-
ening of library hours will be un-
dertaken by the Education and

May. Stop
Air .Search
Rough weather today threatened
to ground search efforts for two
University students believed lost
in the north Canadian wilderness.
A Royal Canadian Air Force
plane flew for nearly ten hours
yesterday over Quebec bush coun-
try but turned up no sign of the
youths, Robert Cary, '58E, and
Alan Price, '59E, son of Prof. Per-
cival Price, University carillonneur.
They have not been seen since
July 26 when they left Lake Was-
wanipi, .some 200 miles north of
Montreal, en route by canoe to
James Bay, 250 miles northeast.
Prof. Price arrived Monday in
the village of Senneterre, Que., to
observe and join in search at-
Air Search Begun
The air search swung into action
yesterday at 8:30 a.m. A 40-mile
stretch of the rugged Waswanipi
River was carefully scanned twice
during the day by the RCAF plane
-with no result.
Detective Louis Patenaude, of
the Quebec, provincial police and
one of the organizers of the search,
expressed some doubt that the
plane would be able to fly again
today, Montreal police reported.
Calling the Montreal post about
6:30 p.m. yesterday, Patenaude
said heavy skies and rain might
well delay the plane's departure
from the town of Amos, Que., early
this morning.
Ground Search Uncertain
He said it was uncertain whether
or not a ground search will be
organized if the pair are not
spotted from the air.
Prof. Price had previously indi-
cated he might make the 250-mile
canoe trip to Rupert House him-
self if the air search continues
to prove fruitless.

POLITICAL ISSUES-Prof. Preston Slosson of the history depart-
ment discusses the possibility of United States recognition of Red
China at a Political Issues Club meeting last night.
Slosson Suggests 'Sale'
Of Red China Approval
The first Polit al Issues Club meeting of the semester broke out
into hot discussion ast ynight over whether Communist China should
be recognized by the United States.
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the history department proposed dip-
lomatic recognition with certain specific reservations. He suggested
the possible "sale" of United States recognition in return for the
safety of Formosa and the Communist's pledge to refrain from any
future intervention in South Korea and Indo-China.
Not Implying Approval
"But," Prof. Slosson added, "recognition does not necessarily im-
ply approval" of Red China's past or future actions. The United
States could always withdraw its
recognition if the Communists vi- A -U- d
