A new graduate engineering
program emphasizing practical
application of the subject ratherI
than research aspects was ap-
proved by the University Regents
at their meeting yesterday.
The two-year plan requires 30
credit hours of work beyond the
level of master of science in en-
gineering. It replaces the old
graduate program of professional
degrees in engineering.R
The Regents also discontinued a
similar professional program in
forestry and wood technology due
to lack of the demand for them.j
New Degree Rating+
The degree conferred does not
fit within the present academic
terms, Vice-President and Dean
of Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss
said. The skill denoted by com-
pletion of the program is above
that of the masters' level and be-
low the doctorate level.
Degrees under the new plan willI
be given in the fields of aero-
nautical, civil, chemical. metallur-
gical, electrical, industrial, me-
chanical, nuclear, applied me-
chanics and marine engineering.
Included in the new program
will be 24 hours of course work ina
the department area, specified by
the department advisors. Six
hours will be required in a re-
search, design or development

Dulles said the Chinese Reds'
new bombardment of Quemoy,1

designed to "throw roadblocks in!

the Chinese Communists will not

In addition, three cognate
courses will be required in fields
other than mathematics. The
chief reason for this requirementj
is to get the student out of his
specialized field, Associate Dean
of the Graduate School Robert R.

likely be in the physical or social
sciences, but the decision depends
on the way the student organizes

Can Michigan bounce back?
This question has been asked innumerable times during the past
week. The answer will be furnished today at 1:30 p.m. when the
Wolverines play host to Minnesota before an estimated 73,000 fans.
Both teams enter today's game with dismal records. Michigan has
a 1-2-1 record, and the Gophers have failed to register a win in four
attempts. But records are tossed aside when these two teams meet.

Gargoyle has been reinstated.
The humor magazine, which was
dropped from the list of campus
publications last spring when no
one petitioned for its managing'
positions, was reinstated by the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications at the meeting last night.
Former Generation Editor David
Newman, Grad., was named Gar-

Garg To Change
Indicating that Gargoyle will re-
semble the Gargoyle of the past in
name only, Newman stressed the
new concept of the magazine. "It
is going to be a magazine which
represents the campus sense of
humor, expressely geared to the
University," he said.
It will contain parody, satire,
humorous fiction and cartoons
which will concern the thingsf
which students come into contact
with every day, he continued.
Newman announced that an or-
ganizational meeting will be held
"as soon as possible." Publication
is tentatively scheduled for some-
time in November-the issue to be
titled "Back from Camp."
"I think there is a definite place
for the humor magazine on this
campus," Newman said. A large
amount of student talent here
happens to be funny."
"As a matter of fact," he added,
"Some of the funniest people I'
know go to the University."
Newman said that they have
been working on the idea for a,
"new" Gargoyle officially since
September, but that plans were
being considered even last May,'

Minnesota has lost four straight
games. Against Northwestern,
however, a team which needs no

to 113 and had a total net gain
advantage of 357 yards to 222.
First downs were 15-10 in Minne-
sota's favor, but the Gophers still
lost, 7-3. Consequently, if Michi-
gan can bounce back, it will have
to do so against what may be a

also been wondering whether'
Michigan can bounce back. At
yesterday's brief workout, which
was forced indoors by the in-
clement weather, Oosterbaan said,
"You can never tell how football
games will work out. However, I
am sure of one thing. The boys'
will go all out."
Coach Murray Warmath brings
to Ann Arbor a team that is very
similar to Michigan in one respect.
The Gophers in their early games
have shown their ability to con-
tain the running game, but like
Michigan have been very weak on
pass defense. With Noskin and
Ptacek, Michigan will go all out
to capitalize on that weakness.
