SGC MEETING-At a meeting held October 1 in the Union
Ballroom, Student Government Council found Sigma Kappa
sorority still in violation of a University anti-discrimination ruling.
The Board in Review reversed the decision and the issue will be-
brought before the Regents next month.
M keN1958 NewS
The University year of 1958 is about to fade into history .. .
and as It exits it leaves several issues resolved and equally as many
still uncertain.
From the Administration's viewpoint, It has been a year of
gradual expansion on an austerity budget. For the students the year
has been one of defining the place of the student on campus.
Tradition was departed from on Jan. 7 when Gov. G. Mennen
Williams appointed a Harvard graduate instead of a University alum-
nus to a Board of Regents position.
Donald D. M. Thurber, Grosse Pointe publisher, was selected by
the governor to fill the seat vacated by Paul L. Adams, who resigned
to become the State's Attorney General.

Administration of the University's Dearborn Center was estab-
lished by a Regent's bylaw on Jan. 11. The plan called for division
of the Center into three areas - business administration, liberal arts
and engineering - with both graduate and undergraduate work in
The executive functions of the Center will be carried out by
a dean of the school and an executive committee.
The Center is scheduled to open next fall providing the legisla-
ture grants funds for operations.
Physical expansion of the University was signified by the open-
ing of the Undergraduate Library on Jan. 16 and the completion of
Mary Markley Dormitory for occupancy in September.
The $3,105,000 library structure, which opened the day before
final exams began, includes both the education and engineering
libraries. Open stacks and midnight closing hours were additional
unique features.
Construction of Markley Hall, designed to house 1,200 women,
began in 1957. Formal opening of the dormitory, which is in the
shape of a modified 'H', was held Dec. 13. There are nine individual
'Dousing units in four wings. In
the center of the building are the

Lovell Discusses Problem
Of Alcohol in U.S. Today
"Alcoholism is probably the third largest public health problem

Dr. Lovell remarked that of the some 70,000,000 persons in the'
country who drink, fully six per cent eventually become alcoholics.
Dr. Lovell remarked that for a long time alcoholism was regarded
not as a true organic disease, but merely as a symptom of more im-
