have been participating in a wide
range program designed to ac-

fraternity system. The two-week
period also gives fraternity mem-
bers a chance to view prospective

merits are in abundance, precede.
smokers, luncheons and dinners.
While pledge cards cannot be
signed until Wednesday, bidding
can take place any time during
the rushing period. Actives nar-
row down their choices during the
nightly "hash sessions" when they
discuss the possible pledge choices
before deciding on1 whom to bid.

GETTING ACQUAINTED-Informal smokers provide the atmosphere for rushees to become further
acquainted with the fraternities. Careful examination allows both actives and rushees to narrow
down their choices.

Press Club
A decade of University Press
Club foreign fellowships in jour-
nalism was marked yesterday at
its 41st annual meeting.
This year's fellowship winners
-Ken-ichi Sasaki, '58, of Japan
and Horacio Marull, '58 of Chile-
are the 21st and 22nd students
to participate in the program.
Fellowship Cost
Cost of the foreign fellowship,
which started in 1948, now has
totalled more than $85,000, with
about h'alf of the amount fur-
nished by the University Press
Club, an organization of Michi-
gan newspaper publishers and
"The purpose of the unique pro-
gram is to give foreign journalists
an opportunity to learn about the
United States through close con-
tact with the institutions of
American society and with its
.people, Prof. Leland Stowe, of
the journalism department, said.
Better Equipped
Because of their experience in
classrooms of the University and
in the Michigan communities in
which they work, the journalists,
when returning to their home-
lands, are. equipped to report and
write about the United States
with greater insight and accu-
racy," Prof. Stowe, explained.
Each fellowship winner receives
an award of over $4,000 for the
two years, Prof. Stowe reported.
The award includes one year of
study at the University and a
series of three 12-week intern-
ships on various Michigan news-
Report Participation
So far, about one-third of
Michigan's daily newspapers have
participated in this program. The
Flint Journal has had almost all
of the students on its staff since
the program started almost ten
years ago, he continued.
Louis Greiss, Grad., of Egypt,
is presently serving an internship
on the Flint Journal. Two form-
er fellows - Wono Lee, Grad., of
Korea and Azhar Ali Khan, Grad.,
of Pakistan - are now graduate
students in journalism and are
working .towards their Master of
Arts degrees.
NOw Date Set
The International Discus-
sion Group meeting scheduled
for 10:30 a.m. today in the
Student Activities Building has
been postponed until next Sat-
It will be held at the same
time and place, according to
Carol Holland, '60, co-chair-
man of the Student Govern-
ment Council's National and
International Committee.

The future of Algeria is the
most pressing problem facing
Charles de Gaulle - and France,
according to Prof. Roy Pierce' of
the political science dept.'
Prof. Pierce, who spent this
summer in France on a faculty
research grant, is now working on
a study of contemporary French'
politieal thought.
De Gaulle's strength has come'
partiallyfrom his refusal to com-
mit himself about Algeria, Prof. .
Pierce said. Each group gives de
Gaulle support partly because
each feels that he will follow the
particular policy it advocates.
De Gaulle may lose the backing.
of some of his supporters when he;
commits himself to a specific
policy, Prof. Pierce added.
Receives Massive Support
"The massive support de Gaulle
received in the recent referendum
on the new constitution came
from people with different views
on how to solve the Algerian prob-
lem," Prof. Pierce continued.
Prof. Pierce said that those ad-,
vocating integration of Algeria;
into France compose one group of
de Gaulle supporters, while "an-
other group is calling for imme-
diate negotiations with the Al-
gerian rebels."
De Gaulle, according to the pro-
fessor, has been reported to have

said that neither independence
nor integration is the solution
now. "The French leader has been
enigmatic about his intentions in'
Algeria," he recalled.
The creation of a strong a'nd
independent president who will
owe his election to a larger group
than the Parliament (which elect-
ed the president under the pre-
vious system) is one of the basic
aims of the new, constitution,
Prof. Pierce reports.
Not "Strong Man"
Not necessarily a "strong man,"
the president will have greatly in-
creased powers, he said. The con-
stitution calls for the presidential
election by a system which at-
tributes great weight to small
town delegates, who are not likely
to be attracted to strong, decisive
figures other than de Gaulle.
A provision in the new consti-
tution which is designed to over-
come some of the weaknesses of
the French Republic requires a
deputy or senator to resign his
seat in Parliament if he becomes
a minister, Prof. Pierce continued.
Authors of the new constitution
feel that this rule will prevent
some deputies from trying to de-
feat the government because of
what the French call the "race for
portfolios" - which means that

Classroom, Teacher Shortage
Increasing, Bartlett Reports

Algeria's Future Poses Big Problem
& .4

WELCOME -- Fraternity actives welcome rushees at the open
houses during the first three days of the formal rushing period.
IAushees are allowed to visit any of the 42 fraternity houses during
the opeMUg days.

FINAL BIDDING-Active's choice and rushees acceptance mark
the end of the rushing period and the beginning of a. semester
long pledge period.

A worse classroom shortage
exists in Michigan this year than
in the 1957-58 year, Lynn M.
Bartlett, State Superintendent of
Public Instruction, said Thursday.
Speaking before the opening
session of the Michigan Education
Association at Ann Arbor High
School, Bartlett reported that the
classroom shortage in the state
increased from last year's short-
age of 10,000 rooms to a shortage
of 11,000 for this year.
Bartlett told the capacity audi-
ence in the school's auditorium
that teacher shortages were com-
mensurate with the classroom
shortage resulting from increases
in the number of students.
Over 11,000 special teaching
certificates were issued last year
and some 14,000 issued this year,
he noted.
Classrooms Needed
In addition to citing the need
for added classrooms and instruc-
tors, plus additional financial aid
for the schools, the superintend-
ent said he believed that criticism
of schools is good for them.
' Increasing criticism indicates
increasing interest, he noted.
Prof. Gerald Wendt, former.
dean of the Pennsylvania State
College, school of chemistry and
physics and former science edi-
tor for Time magazine, was also
a featured speaker on Thursday's
Prof. Wendt said that he be-

lieved children must be made to
realize that the world.is continu-
ally changing and that they must
adjust to the times.
Intellectual and spiritual pur-
suits should be encouraged along
with sports and other recreation-
al activities, he added.
Executive secretary of the MEA,
E. Dale Kennedy, spoke on the
programs of his organization.
Air Problems DiscussedM
The afternoon program consist-
ed of some 30 group meetings dis-
cussing topics such as "Problems
in Air Age Education" and
"Ocean, Earth and Sky in Inter-
national Geophysical Yeah"'
MEA President Mrs. Charlotte
Richards, discussed "Fifty Thou-.
sand Plus" yesterday at the after-
noon program. Dan T. Moore,
author and industrial consultant,
spoke on "The Boiling Pot of the
Middle East."
In charge of the programs for
the event wer# regional chairman
Robert Hoffman, principal of
Vandercook Lake High School in
Jackson and executive secretary
Herman Steinman, principal of
Perry and Wagner elementary
schools in Ann Arbor.
More than 4,000 teachers and
school administrators from Wash-
tenaw, Jackson, - Lenawee and
Monroe counties attended the
conference. The conference ended
yesterday afternoon.

deputies will try to become min-
isters themselves, he reported.
The newly designed constitu
tion also hopes to improve the
situation in which past electiona
to parliament have not produce
majorities in support of any give
policy and in which long and In
tricate policy-making processes 0:
bargaining among polica' group
in the legislature took place.
Discusses Policy-Making
Policy-making is confined ti
the executive under the new con
stituti.n, Pierce said. The govern
ment policy may be rejected 0:
accepted fiiely by Parliament
Prof. Pierce added, but rejectio
carries with it the risk of a nev
Power to dissolve the nationa
assembly once a year, if he de
sires, is given to the president d
the reptiblic, Prof. Pierce said,
According to Prof. Pierce, pros
pects of greater government sta
bility than there was during th
third and fourth republics is pro
vided by the constitution.
Past behavior and statement
of .de Gaulle indicate his opposi
tion to certain policies to which
the United States is sympathetic
such as European integration, h
related. But, so far de Gaulle ha
not indicated any intention of re
versing plans that have alread;
been made.
In the next four months, Prol
Pierce said, one of the most Mi
portant things the French gov
ernment must do is to produc
some of the more than 15 "or
ganic laws" required to implemen
provisions of the new constitu
Law Already Decigded
Although the electoral law fi

been decided, other decisions hav
to be made, Prof. Pierce said. A
an example Prof. Pierce cited th
new constitution's provision fo
several new institutions establish
ing a community between Franc
an her overseas territories.
"New laws are necessary befor
these institutions nn be set up.
he continued. Other implementin
laws ;are necessary for the elec
tion of the president of the -re
public, the organization of th
courts and the constitutiona
council and for other aspects o
the new system," he added.
Only urgent laws will be take
care of by the present govern
ment, Prof. Pierce said. Item
such as the method of presenta
tion of the budget will probab,
be left to the decision of the ne
parliament, he added.
