Survey Reveals
Enrollment Rise
Total Enrollment Figures Show
27,524 in Full-Time Programs
Enrollment figures for the University released yesterday showed
e total number of students in credit programs up 3.4 per cent to a
total of 27,524.
The total enrollment for resident credit programs was 23,633 with
extension service enrollment of 3,891. This is an on-campus increase of
2.9 per cent and a 6.6 per cent rise in off-campus enrollment figures
over last year.
Greatest Rise Reported
On campus, the sharpest rise came in the 14.9 per cent increase
in education school enrollment. "This increase is not as great as the

Climaxes Ceremony
Nicola Cardinal Canali, 84-year-
old Cardinal Deacon of the Sacred
College, placed the jeweled symbol
of papal : authority on the new
Pope's head.
The crowning climaxed a four
and one-half hour ceremony that
combined medieval splendor with
equipment of the electronic age.
It was held on the outdoor
balcony of St. Peter's Basilica,
high over the heads of the cheer-
ing thousands.
Light Arrival
Before that, the 76-year-old
pontiff was the center of glittering
pageantry inside the Basilica,
much of it celebrated at the same
spot where burial services were
held 22 days ago for Pius XII.
Then the services were awesome
and sad. Yesterday there was
glitter and triumph.
Thousands of electric lights and
powerful floodlights blazed on the
red and golden damask that
draped the Basilica as silver trum-
pets announced the arrival of the
new Pope on his portable throne.
Violinist Stern
To Perform
Here Tonight
Recently having completed a
concert tour of England and Isiael,
American violinist Isaac Stern will
perform at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill
Auditorium, as the second artist
featured in the University's Extra
Concert Series.
Stern, the only major violinist
whose training is exclusively
American, received instruction in
his home town of San Francisco
from Naoum Blinder.
He began study of the violin at
the age of eight, and made his
New York debut nine years later.
Took Tour
Latin America, Israel, England,
Australia and nine other Euro-
pean countries have been visited
by Stern during the last ten years,
with concerts primarily during the
Two years ago, at the invitation
of the Soviet Ministry of Culture
and the United States State De-
partment, he toured Russia as the
first American artist to appear
there in more than a decade.
In the spring of 1952, Stern went
to Hollywood to appear in the
20th Century-Fox production of
"Tonight We Sing," where he
played the role of Eugene Ysaye'
Program Announced
For tonight's concert Stern will
play Beethoven's "Sonata in A
major, No. 2, Op. 12" as his open-
ing number. He will also play
"Sonata in a minor, No. 1, for
violin alone" by Bach; "Notturno
et Tarantella" by Symanowski;
"Sonata in F minor, Op. 80" by
Prokofieff; "Siciliano and Rigau-
don" by Kreisler; "Nigun" by
Bloch and "Caprice Basque" by

tonight's performance are still

in the University who have shown
a desire to teach after leaving
school," Prof. Willard Olsen, dean
of the education school, com-
There has been a 25 to 30 per
cent rise in the number of students
taking introductory education
courses, he said. "This is partly
due to the increased attractiveness
of the teaching profession in re-
cent times," he added.
The total University resident
enrollment rose 665 this fall with
a rise of 287 in-state students
and 378 out-state.
Non-Credit Decrease
Everet J. Soop, extension service
director, said that although there
has been a rise in enrollment at
University off-campus centers,
there has been a decrease in the
enrollment in certificate and non-
:credit courses.
Based on figures of total enroll-
ment in courses rather than head
count of students enrolled, Soop
said there has been a drop from
4,000 to 2,571 in the non-credit
He said a total of 8,966 are now
enrolled through the extension
service as compared to 10,037 last
year. This has come, he explained
through the dropping of some 70
courses already this year with a
possible drop of 140 by the end of
the spring semester.
Police Seize
COLUMBUS (A -- Two Ohio
State University students were
arrested here yesterday in con-
nection with a football gambling
pool, similar to one recently dis-
closed at the University.
Arrest of the two on charges of
selling football pool tickets came
on the heels of an investigation
into a lottery operation on and
near the Ohio State campus.
The Columbus Dispatch said it
learned that the football pool here
is a $10,000-a-week business.
Officers said they got the cards
they sold from a mother and son,
who were arrested by police vice
squadmen over the weekend.
Mrs. Margaret Soteriades, 50
years old, and her son, Christo-
pher, 21 years old, of Columbus,
were charged with possession of
football pool cards. They are
slated for a court hearing Nov. 13.

Vote Plan
A motion to do away with the
vote-fining plan adopted by Stu-
dent Government Council last
month will be heard at tonight's
SGC meeting, according to Execu-
tive Vice-President Dan Belin, '59.
The motion will come from the
Credentials Committee, which
drew up the penalty plan in the
first place, Belin said. The Cre-
dentials Committee met with
Joint Judiciary Council and were
told Joint Judic considered penal-
izing candidates their prerogative,
according to Credentials Com-
mittee member David Kessel, Grad.
Belin blamed poor planning on
the part of the committee for the
change in opinion. SGC has the
power to fine its candidates, Belin
said, and could make Joint Judic
change its constitution to permit
this transfer of power.
Wants No Dispute
But now the Credentials Com-
mittee apparently wishes to avoid
a fresh jurisdictional dispute while
the one with the administration on
recognition of student groups is
still open, Belin said.
If the Credentials Committee
motion passes tonight, and Belin
said he feels passage probable,
candidates who violate elections
rules would be punishable by dis-
qualification as before but there
would be no "lesser" penalty, as
vote-docking was characterized
when it was adopted.
The Credentials Committee has
already uncovered a violation of
elections rules for which a candi-
date will likely be disqualified,
according to SGC Treasurer Mort
Wise, '59, committee member.
Action would be taken on this
violation when further evidence
has been gathered, Wise indicated.
He said this would take place "by
the end of the week."
Committee Has Met
The committee established by
SGC to propose action on the
status of Sigma Kappa met with
the administration yesterday, SGC
President Maynard Goldman, '59,
said. The group, consisting of
Goldman, Panhellenic President
Mary Toner, '59, League President
Bobbie Maier, '59, Scott Chrysler,
'59BAd, and Daily Editor Richard
Taub, '59, was set up following the
council's decision that Sigma Kap-
pa still violates University rules.
The meeting accomplished
"nothing at all," Goldman said.
This committee will not report,
back today, he explained. but will;
definitely make a report for action
before the new SGC members
elected Wednesday are seated.-

Aguero Sees
Cuban Peace
As Feasible
HAVANA (A)-Cuba's President-
elect, Andres Rivero Aguero, said
yesterday he will try to bring
peace to Cuba by ending the long
and bloody rebellion led by Fidel
But any peace overtures face al-
most certain rejection. Castro had
declared in advance that Rivero
Aguero's election would mean only
a continuation of the policies of
President Fulgencia Batista.
Castro tried to thwart Monday's
election by boycott and threats,
and apparently succeeded in scar-
ing thousands away from the polls.
Soft-Spoken Lawyer
Rivero Aguero, a soft-spoken
lawyer and longtime protege of
Batista, is classified by Americans
as a good friend of the United
States. He will take over Batista's
job Feb. 24.

rescue of people trapped by an
explosion and fire in the central
tower of Belgium's new National
Sabena Airline's chief helicopter
pilot, Robert Tremerie, was re-
ported to have rescued at least
three people on his first try.
He circled the tower over the

Fire swept the main airport
building in this suburb of Brussels
after an unexplained explosion.
Meanwhile firemen and engines
from all parts of Brussels raced to
the airport. They were hampered
by shortage of water.

The charge brought sharp de-
nials from both the Nationalists
and Americans.
A spokesman for the Nationalist
government said the Reds ap-
peared to be laying the propa-
ganda groundwork for using poi-
son gas themselves.
A Peiping broadcast charged
that the United States supplied

there are "formidable obstacles to
rational action on the tax side."
May Add to Problem
Measures taken to halt there-
cession, Stein said, may have add-
ed to another problem-the choice
between higher taxes or continued
inflation to finance the federal
budget. He said the nation may
still find itself faced with this de-
The buildup of the highway pro-

added there might also have been

In another speech to the confer-
ence, Prof. Hans Brems of the
University of Illinois economics
department predicted a sharp in-
crease in sales of new cars,
Forecasting a figure of around
six or seven million units, Prof.
Brems said the rise might be
caused by increases in consumer
disposable income and general
price stability. His figure is sub-
stantially higher than the five
and a half million units estimated
by automobile company officials.
Sales of small cars will also
show a substantial increase of
their share of the market, Prof.
Brems said.
Decreases in consumer dispos-
able income in 1958 have been
responsible for this year's "excep-
tionally low" registrations, Prof.
Brems said. Right now disposable
income is increasing "at a sub-
stantial rate and prices do not
seem to be rising accordingly," he
pointed out.
WSU Board
Of Governors
Grants Funds
The Board of Governors of
Wayne State University has au-
thorized appropriations for student
loans and the establishment of an
experimental college.
A 10 per cent contribution from
Wayne funds will match a 90 per
cent grant from federal funds to
secure for the students benefits
of the recently enacted National
Defense Education Act.
Amount of the grant to Wayne
by she government is not yet de-
termined. Funds will be allotted to
each state according to the rela-
tive number of persons enrolled in
higher educational institutions. No
student may receive over $1,000 in
any year or over $5,000 in all.
The experimental college set up
by the Board of Governors will
have an enrollment of 1,000. It is
designed to provide a general edu-
cation for pre-professional stu-
If Wayne receives a foundation
grant to make creation of the
college possible, the new program
will begin in September, 1959.
Totaling 48 hours, the new col-
lege's four required courses include
natural sciences, social sciences,
humanities and one year of a
seniorcolloquium independent
study program.

More Stud
To Precede
Hatcher Grants Delay
To Halt Revisions
For at Least One Year
Adoption of University calendar
committee proposals for a sub-
stantially changed University cii-
endar has been postponed for at
least a year, Erich A, Walter,
assistant to the president, said
University President Harlan
Hatcher has granted a delay of
action' on the calendar proposals
until March, 1959, to enable facul-
ties of four University units t
study the plan further.
The four units are the literary
and architecture colleges and the
business administration and law
The postponement will mean
that the calendar committee pro-
posals will not go into effect until
1060-61, if they go into effect at
all. The calendar committee had
recommended that the new calen-
dar go into effect next year.
A calendar similar to the pres-
ent school year calendar will b1
substituted, Walter said,
Want Shortened Exams
The calendar committee recom-
mendations included a shortened
one-week examination schedule,
registration of a semester's course,
during the previous semester, and
a full week's vacation before
The need for time to discuss the
educational implications of th&
plan and its new features was the
main reason the literary college
requested the delay, Dean Roger
W. Heyns of the literary college
said yesterday.
He said the final report, which
was released before the start of'
the fall semester, was not able t-
lege faculty in enough detail. The
plan will now be discussed by the
literary college departments and
then by the literary college faculty
senate at one of their monthly
meetings, Heyns said.
Cites Lack of Time
Another reason for requestIng
the delay, he said, was the lack of
time to iron - out difficulties that
would be involved in administra.

The business administration
faculty wanted to -give more con-
sideration to specific features of

Maaer Says No Pans
aFor Stage Productions
At the present time there are no definite plans to bring any more
stage productions to Ann Arbor this year, Gerald H. Hoag, manager
of the Michigan Theatre which recently presented "The Diary of
Anne Frank," said yesterday.
Although the theatre will probably sponsor either the New York
City Ballet Company or the Ballet Russe in the spring, another dra-



'Ab, Wil
Eugene O'Neill's only comedy,
"Ah, Wilderness," will be presented
by the speech department at 8:30
p.m. tomorrow, Friday and Satur-
'day in the Lydia Mendelssohn
The story of the problems of a
typical small town American fam-
ily, the plot revolves around the
rebellion of the adolescent son of
a Connecticut newspaper pub-
lisher. Complications arise when
the boy goes on a binge with the
local "wicked woman,"
Directed by Prof. Jack E. Ben-
der of the speech department, the
play was chosen for presentation
this year in conjunction with the
current interest in O'Neill's works.
m Last year's success of the de-
partment's production of "Desire,
Under the Elms," one of O'Neill's
tragedies, was a strong factor in
favor of choosing this year's play,
Prof. Bender explained.
The production will feature cos-
tumes authentically representing
the style of 1906 and music from
a special recording of a player
piano owned by a local canoe
Tickets for the production, the
first presentation in the 1958-59
speech department playbill, are
available at the theatre box


To Open Tomorrow

matic presentation would probably
be unfeasible for this year. There
is some possibility that Victor
Borge may appear, he said, but
nothing has been decided.
Disappointing Attendance
Discussing the recent production
of "The Diary of Anne Frank,"
Hoag explained "bringing a show
of that type into Ann Arbor is not
to make money. We do it as a
service to the community."
Approximately 1100 people at-
tended the performance-a "dis-
appointing" number in comparison
to the 1800 expected by Hoag,
The high cost of the perform-
ance was due largely to its "heavy"
nature, he explained. The com-
pany brought its own lighting,
scenery and a special stage which
was constructed on two separate
levels, with an attic and rooms on
either side.
Adds to Cost
The stage setting alone was so
large and complicated that the
theatre was forced to move its
grand piano into the alley to make
room for the sturdy structure that
was "built like a house."
Another factor that added to
the expenses was the high cost of
stage technicians and the large
amount the theatre spent on ad-
"The next show will have to be
one where my gamble won't be as
high," Hoag said.
"Maybe spring would be a better
season, when there are few con-
certs and Hill Auditorium isn't
open as much as in the fall," he

O'NEILL'S COMEDY-"Ah, Wilderness," Eugene O'Neill's only comedy, is the first production in
the speech department's 1958-59 playbill. In the play showing a sentimental touch that is unexpected
in O'Neill's writing, the leading role was taken by George M. Cohan on Broadway and Will Rogers
in the road show. The cast of the University production includes students and graduates of the
speech department.
