U Offering
Short Courses
For Doctors
A series of 17 three to five day
courses during' the year provide
opportunity for physicians to keep
up with the latest developments
according to Dr. John N. Sheld-
on, director of the department of
postgraduate medicine.
Describing the situation of doc-
tors having less and less time to
learn of the ever-increasing scope
of medical knowledge as a 'vicious
circle," he said the department of
postgraduate medicine is a meth-
od of gathering the maximum
amount of knowledge with the
minimum of time and trouble.
'U Sends Lectures
In addition to programs in the
Medical Center, the University
sends a series of two lecturers
throughout the state to help
physicians who are unable to
come to the University. These in-
structors travel to 15 centers
around the state during the fall
and spring to lecture on new de-
velopments and to hold clinical
Besides keeping Michigan doc-
tors abreast of medical advances
the department is in charge of

Must Complete Internship
An internship of one year must
be completed by all doctors after
their graduation before they can
practice. Specialists then must in-
tern for one to five years more as
resident physicians of some hos-
Part of this plan includes the
Affiliated Regional Hospitals Pro-
gram between the Medical Cen-
ter and 18 Michigan hospitals.
The Medical Center sends its
graduates to these hospitals who
in turn send their residents for
the second year of their speciall-
zation to Ann Arbor.

The bicycle population of the
University is somewhere near 16,-
000, Lt. Henry Murray of the Ann
Arbor Police Department estimat-
ed yesterday.
Each year the police are faced
with the problem of keeping the
bicycles and their riders under
control. One of the big problems,
Lt. Murray said, is to clear side-
walks and building entrances of
illegally parked bicycles.
Although there is "never any
special drive," parking tickets are
"given out gradually all along,"
he explained - a fact discovered
yesterday by many students who
parked their bicycles at the side
entrance to the Frieze Building.
Adequate Facilities Provided
Lt. Murray said adequate park-
ing facilities have been provided.
Bicycle racks dot the campus and
signs reading "Please do not park
bicycles in this area" clearly de-
fine building entrances. He point-
ed out that students who do not
obey parking regulations create a
hazard for the entire campus.
Dollar fines are issued for ille-
gal parking and for improperly li-
censed bicycles. Fines for moving
violations are the same as those
for automobiles.
Proper licensing is necessary for
the student's own protection, Lt.
Murray commented. He said six
to ten bicycles are stolen daily.
Most Bicycles Returned
Police who stop a student on
the street often find "he doesn't
know what bicycle he's got,"bIt..
Murray continued. Most "bor-
rowed" bicycles are returned, but
a student whose unlicensed bi-
cycle is not brought back has
little chance of finding it, he said.
He stressed the point that the
recovery rate for licensed bicycles
is high.
. Students may register their bi-
cycles and obtain licenses for
fifty cents at the City Hall.
The City Hall is also the site
for the twice-yearly bicycle auc-
tion to be held at 10 a.m. today.
The auction, sponsored by the po-
lice department, will include
about 80 bicyclse for which no
claims have been made.
Housing Bill
To Reappear
In Congress
Controversial issues which pre-
vented enactment of a general
housing bill in the last session of
Congress will arise again next
year, according to O. G. Powell
chairman of the Realtors' Wash-
ington Committee of the National
Association of Real Estate Boards.
He warned that an omnibus
housing bill is almost certain in
1959. The non-controversial regu-
lar PHA mortgage insurance pro-
grams will require additional in-
s'urance authorization, and the
FHA Title I home improvement
program will expire on June 30,
1959, unless Congress acts to ex-
tend it.
"We anticipate that tremen-
dous pressures will be generated
to force into law many of the ob-
jectionable provisions of the un-
successful -1958 bill, using these.
noncontroversial features as a
lever," he said.
Measures to Re-emerge
"Objectionable" measures Pow-
ell sees as likely to re-emerge in-
clude proposals td make perman-
ent the-use of Treasury money for
support of mortgages insured by
the FHA and guaranteed by the
Veterans Administration; setting
prices in excess of value by buy-
ing them at par.-
NAREB supports the special as-
sistance functions of the Federal
National Mortgage Association,
Powell explained. "Under this op-
eration, FNMA draws upon the

Treasury for funds with which
to buy mortgages," he said.
Assists Special Mortgages
"As originally conceived, this
program was designed to assist
special types of mortgages such
as Sections 220 and 221 whose
marketability was uncertain, and
the FNMA would fix the prices
which would be above the market
but not so high as to preclude
private money from participa-
Realtors will seek "amendments
which will widen home ownership
opportunities within the frame-
work of private enterprise" in
next year's housing legislation,
Powell said.
Among these strengthening
amendments will be a "Trade-in
house" program of the FHA, he

THE LINEUP-Bicycles, row upon row of them, can be seen practically anywhere on campus at
practically any time. The majority of students are cyclists ' and must obey the same laws that
apply to motorists according to Lt. Henry Murray. Ann Arbor police are continually checking for
violations and issuing tickets for anything from an illegally parked bicycle to running a red light.

Detroit Begins
New Method
Of Vaccination
The Detroit Health Department
introduced a new needle-less
method of administering Salk
polio vaccine, it was announced'
The new device got its first
mass test yesterday at one of De-
troit' clirnics, according to Dr.{
Joseph G. Molner, Wayne County
Health Commissioner.
Instead of poking a hole, the
new "needle blasts polio serum;
through the skin without break-
ing it.".A vial containing enough
vaccine for nine shots is attached
to the device which operates on
compressed air. It needs steriliza-
tion only once a day.
Dr. Molner said the new meth-
od is comparatively painless and
makes easier the job of innoculat-I
ing children.
Dr. Molner also announced 13
new polio cases were reported in
Detroit Thlirsday, bringing the
city's total to 517 for the year.
For the first time in several
weeks, there were no new cases
in the out-county area yesterday.
The new count brings the totalsj
to 674 cases and 16 deaths in
Wayne County this year.*
Interests continue to run high
in the polio clinics. Nearly 5,000
men, women and children have;
received their first Salk shots in
three Dearborn centers.-
Says Doctors
Lose Prestige
A psychiatrist recently claimed
doctors are losing their prestige
with the public by appearing toa
be too successful.
Dr. Lewis L. Robbins said the
"old-time doctors" were less effi-
cient but devoted more attention
and time to their patients, gain-
ing their "reverence and respect."a
Modern doctors, he continued,
speedily cure them, giving the
public the impression that they
are "highly paid and competent
technicians" who "lack the human

A suit, seeking to nullify an Ann
Arbor zoning ordinance, was filed
Thursday in the United States
District Court at Detroit.
The suit, naming Ann Arbor as
the defendent, was brought by the
Northwest Park Construction
Corp., a Maryland firm which has
plans for a five-store shopping
center at E. Stadium Blvd. and
Winchell Dr. in southeast Ann
The suit, brought before Judge
Thomas P. Thornton asks the re-
zoning ordinance passed by the
council last Aug. 21 be declared
"null and void, as being illegal,
invalid and unconstitutional."
One Fourth Left
The council action left only
about one fourth of Northwest
Park's shopping center site with
"C" type local business zoning,
the kind that would permit the
planned commercial development.
Northwest Park had acquired
13.3 acres on its site in Jan., 1954.
Another parcel was added in Aug.,
1956. Northwest Park's suit also
asks the court to find the council's
1954 zoning action "was proper,
which would permit the plaintiff
to- construct" the planned shopping
According to the suit, the Aug.
21 councilaction "was an arbitrary
and unreasonable exercise of
power, aimed at one land-owner
and not made with the best in-
terests of the entire city in mind,
and had no real bearing upon the
health, safety, public morals or
general welfare of the city of Ann
Actions Termed Illegal
The suit claims the action and
new ordinance therefore are illegal,
invalid, and unconstitutional be-
cause the plaintiff is deprived
"without due process of law of the
use of the land in the manner it
had contemplated which was
known to the council of the de-
fendant for upwards of four years."
Northwest Park claims it did
everything in its power to co-
operate with city officials.
Acted On Premise
The complaint says leases have
been signed and commitments
made for leases with respect to
proposed stores for the center. It
also alleges the council and its
agents had "full knowledge" of
this prior to the rezoning action.
Northwest Park says that acting
on the premise it would be able to
build on the disputed property, it
"spent upwards of $175,000" to
develop the property. The expendi-
tures included those for land costs,
plans, engineering fees, traffic
surveys and studies, architectural
fees, legal fees and other purposes,
according to the complaint.

The graduate school's interde-
partmental doctorial program in
social work and social science is
now in its second year.
First offered last fall, the course
features instruction by members of
the social work school and the
sociology, psychology, social psy-
chology and economics depart-
"The program is intended to
develop persons in one field of
social science and an area of social
welfare," Prof. Henry J. Meyer,
acting supervisor of the depart-
mental committee, said.
'Training Is Valuable'
"Such training," he added," is
valuable preparation for leadership
in selected teaching, research,
policy development and adminis-
trative positions in the social wel-
fare field."
There are three patterns of study
according to Prof. Meyer:
1) Students with a bachelor's
degree enroll for one year in the
social work school, taking one
social science 'course each semester.
At the end of thin time he applies
for admission to the program
through the graduate school.
He then continues to take courses
in both social science and social
work until fulfilling all require-
ments for a master's degree in
social work and a Ph.D.
Must Take Social Work
2) Students with a master's de-
gree in social science must enroll
in the social work school and ob-
tain a master's degree in social
work along with enough courses
to get a Ph.D. in his particular
field of social science.
3) Those students with a mas-
ter's degree in social work enter
right into the interdepartmental
program, taking advanced study
in social work but spending most
of their time in the social sciences.
The key to the program is a
series of core seminars and re-
search internships designed to
integrate the fields of social sci-
ence and social work.
Integrate Two Fields
The doctorial dissertation must
show an integration of the two
fields, Prof. Meyer said, and should
show the practical application of

E / X-4 u 9/... v4/V . 1/ v
social science theory to a social
welfare problem.
The program first grew out of
an interdepartmental faculty sem-
inar and still remains completely
integrated through meetings of
the supervisory committee and
cross - departmental work of the
The program now holds 14 stu-
dents and, because of the novelty,
and complexity of the subject,
will probably be limited to small
enrollment, Prof. Meyer com-
mented. F
Foundation Finances Program
Thefirst five years of this pro-
gram are being financed by' the
Russell Sage Foundation including
both research and training.
The grant permits fellowships
of from $1,600 to $2,350 to be
given; the amount depending on
the amount of graduate training
the student has had. This grant
also includes dependency allow-
ances for married students.
