UMVrERSIT1YFLINT COLLEGE-The Mott Building contains the University's branch college at Flint., The building, made possible
by a one million dollar grant from Charles S. Mott, a Flint industrialist, contains classes for the junior and senior years of college.

Through the philanthropic con-I
tribution of one million dollars by
Charles S. Mott, a Flint engineer
and industrialist, the University
was able to construct the two-
story, "L" shaped Mott Building
as the home of the senior college.
The Committee of Sponsors of
the Flint College and Cultural De-
velopment Program, composed of
Flint residents, contributed an
additional $150,000 for furnish-
ings and equipment for the new

building. Delication was held on
Oct. 3, 1957.
Classes Are Small
The. Flint College provides in-
structional programs in liberal
arts, business administration and
professional education. Every pro-
gram leads-to a Bachelor of Arts
degree, and consequently, distribu-
tion requirements are broader than
on the Ann Arbor campus, accord-
ing to David M. French, dean of
the college.

Classes are small with present
enrollment being around 350 stu-
dents. There are approximately 15
faculty members.
Executive functions of the school
are carried out by the dean and
and executive committee composed
of five members of the University
faculty with at least one of them
being a member of the Flint Col-
lege.
By the end of the 1958-59 aca-
denic year-, the Executive com-

mittee will present a report on the
college to the president along with
recommendations concerning the;
future structure, organization, ad-
ministrative arrangements and
educational policies of the college.
Regent Roscoe 0. Bonisteel, who
proposed the original plan for the
college,, has called it "another
milestone in the history of the
University and education in Michi-
gan."

By JOAN KAATZ
Dearborn Center, the Univer-
sity's first cooperative branch,
will begin operations in the fall
of 1960.
Originally scheduled to open in
the fall of 1959, the one-year de-
lay is due to the Michigan legis-
lature's million dollar cut in the
University's 1958-W9 operations;
budget.
Vice-President and Dean of
Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss told
the Board of Regents last May,
"We cannot take any more funds
from the central campus to sup-
port outlying areas."
Gift From Ford
The four buildings of the Cen-
ter are being financed by a gift
og $6,500,000 from the Ford Mo-
tor Company which also donated
the 210 acres, including Fairlane,
the Henry Ford estate, for the
college.I
The school is expected to enroll
about 2,700 students in the junior,
senior, and graduate level. The
Center will be divided into three
areas of concentration: business
administration, engineering, and
liberal arts.
Construction of the buildings
began last spring, and if complet-
ed this fall as scheduled, will be,
guarded by watchmen until the
Univer sity receives s u f f i c i e n t
funds to open the branch.
The executive functions of the
Center will be carried out by a
dean of the college and an exec-
utive committee. The executive
committee will be composed of
the deans, or their designated al-
ternates, of the corresponding
schools on the Ann Arbor cam-

The school will operate on the co-operative basis for the jut
and senior years of college and on the graduate level. Univer
expansion has, in addition to the Flint and Dearborn brane

buildings.

For 'a freshman,

Matter of fact, I looked un-fresh. Rumpled. You know?
.ought a couple shirts, ties, slacks, etc., but couldn't
manage all new threads. And when I wore last year's stuff
I heard the man say: "Look at that rumpled freshman!"
But then I got a tip..."Man, go to Greene's Cleaners"..

University Senate.
Organization of the faculties of
each division within the Center
will be done by standing commit-
tees for each area of concentra-
tion.
The Center will operate on a
year-round academic basis in or-
der to provide a cooperative plan
for students.
Under the plan, students in
business administration and engi-
neering will receive practical ex-'
perience by working for local in-
dustrial firms. As far as is adrnin-

Four-Quarter System
The academic year will be
vided into four quarters, beg

the year, half the student b<

Classes will be held 48 wee

The Dearborn program will to

into Greenes

It's the greatest!. Greene's South U. store has complete
service for students. Their cleaning process - "Micro-
cleaning" - is so good it's patented! It's gentle, thorough,
revitalizes, older clothes, gives new clothes the right start
so they last longer. Greene's has "custom cleaning" for
formals... shirt laundry that's the greatest. There's even
a handy self-service set-up especially for busy students!
