...Kennedy visit
Cites Resul t
Of Program
University President Harlan
Hatcher reported the results of
a civil rights conference at the
White House to the Regents. at
their meeting last Friday.
President* Hatcher was one of
175 educators called to Washing-
ton by President John F. Kennedy
to discuss educational means of
improving the position of minority
The immediate reason was to
discuss a "summer crash pro-
gram," President Hatcher ex-
plained. It will be directed main-
ly at students coming up through-
the high schools and will attempt
to "more effectively identify tal-
ent earlier than is presently the
No Jobs
"One aspect of the problem that
concerned President Kennedy was
what happened to students after
they left high school. Often, after
they have received job training
there are no Jobs available," he
President Hatcher added that
the Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare would set up
widely based citizens committees
to foster vocational education and
training. "I do not know yet what
the University will be called upon
,to do.".
The University is also working
towards a program of mutual as-
sistance and help with Tuskegee
University in Tuskegee, Alabama.
Vice-President Heyns explained
that officials of the two kschools
had conferred on the program and
that within the next week some
people from the University would
go to Tuskegee to explore areas
of mutual concern.
Two-Way Deal
Heyns emphasized that the
planned program was not a "one-
way deal" with the University
providing the Southern school all
the answers it needs to solve its
"They are in the process of ex-
panding their liberal arts program
and we- will help them with that.
They in turn will help us in other
areas," he said.

Although there has been a
marked increase in the number of
associate professors resigning this
year, compared to last, the Uni-
versity is "holding its own"
against "severe competition," Vice-
President for Academic Affairs
Roger W. Heyns assured the Re-
gents Friday.
Heyns told the Regents of a
survey of resignations in April,
May and June-the key faculty
turnover months - this year and
last. The resignations of the pro-
fessors and associate professors
remained approximately the same
in both years, but the number of
assistant professors leaving jump-
ed from three to 11.
"This reflects the increase in
competition. The problem is most
intense at this level. It shows up
most there. Competition is in-
creasing in severity," he declared.
The Regents accepted 14 resig-
nations. Five are professors, three
are associate professors and six
are assistant professors. Last June
three resigned - one professor,
assistant and associate professor.
Heyns explained that the salary
schedule is a problem at that level.
The University, he said, is often
the target of some unusual re-
quests and to match this and out-
side offers would involve a com-
plete revamping of the schedule.
The University, however, is
managing to attract good young
faculty members and thus keep
up, Heyns said. Just the same, the
University is sorry to see good
people leave, he commented.
The Regents appointed 22 new
professors-mostly at the assistant
professorial level.
They also appointed seven local
doctors to clinical professorships
in the Medical School. The physi-
cians teach part-time medical
schools in area hospitals. The ap-
pointments lasting one year are
chiefly honorary and the doctors
are unpaid.
Five visiting professors were
also named.
Prof. Warren L. Smith was ap-
pointc-. chairman of the econom-
ics department, replacing Prof.
William Haber who was promoted
to literary college dean. Prof.
Smith is currently on leave, serv-
ing on the staff of the Council
of Economics Advisors. He will
take this post in September.
Prof. Hansford S. Farris of the
electrical engineering department
was appointed associate director
of the Institute of Science and
Technology. He will be responsible
for IST industrial development
and liason activities.
Professors Robert L. Iglehart
and Wilbur C. Nelson were re-
appointed chairmen of the art
and aeronautical and astronauti-
cal engineering departments, re-
spectively. University President
Harlan Hatcher noted that Prof.
Nelson had decided to remain de-
spite "exteremely attractive off-
ers" elsewhere.
Prof. Stanley Cain was appoint-
ed acting chairman of the con-
servation departments for the
1963-64 academic year. He will
serve while Prof. Lyle E. Cram,
the current chairman, is on sab-
batical leave. Prof. Cain was
chairman from 1950 to 1961.

The State Board of Education
fired Eastern Michigan University
President Eugene B. Elliott on
June 14, claiming that EMU re-
quires "a more vigorous and dy-
namic leadership" than Elliott has
"What Eastern needs now is a
younger, more aggressive, more
forward-looking individual," State
Board President Chris H. Magnus-
son had said.
Elliott was fired after he refused
to resign. "They have asked me to
resign six times since May 5, and
my answer is still the same," El-
liott asserted shortly before his
In addition, the State Board
eliminated the position held by
Elliott's close associate, James E.
Green - Vice-president for Plan-
ning and Development. Eastern,
with three vice-presidents, has too
many, State Board members said.
Elliott's dismissal came after a
report on EMU was submitted to
the State Board by the North
Central Association of Colleges
and Secondary Schools. An NCA
investigating team visited the
Eastern campus last January to
find sources of reported "low fac-
ulty morale" and administrative
problems. They submitted their
findings as a result of this inves-
Key points made in the NCA
"Most of the principal adminis-
trative officers subordinate to the
president are fairly new to their
posts and, in general, came with
little experience in academic ad-
ministration - . Their previous
backgrounds and experiences were
not in the areas for which they
assumed responsibility."
Elliott had given much of the
actual runningof EMU over to
three younger vice-presidents. But
they lacked "adequate sensitivity
to the present feelings of faculty
and of subordinate officers of ad-
ministration. They took action
without proper attention to public
relations aspects, arousing the
public, alumni and students." -
Faculty members were sensitive
about "excessive domination by
administrative officers." Elliott
created an elected faculty council
when he took office, but it be-
came an "administrative impedi-
ment," and was abolished in 1954.
The abolition became "unques-
tionably a severe blow to faculty

ments of campus.
After leaving the University,

Police Place
SNCC Staff
Under Guard
Susan Wender, '65, a field secre-
tary for the Student Non-Violent
Co-Ordinating Committee, was
arrested in Albany, Ga., Thursday
Former University student Mar-
tha Prescod also working with
SNCC said in a telephone conver-
sation Sunday night that 20 out
of 26 SNCC staff members had
been arrested and the rest, in-
cluding herself, had fled the
SNCC office and taken refuge in
a Baptist church.
The arrested SNCC members,
"many of whom were picked up
right off the street" were charged
with vagrancy, disorderly conduct,
refusing to heed an officer and
trying to disrupt private property.
26 Arrested
Miss Prescod explained that the
present crisis began Wednesday
when "we began canvassing the
city seeking people for a demon-
stration. That night 300 people
marched downtown and lay down
on the ground when they were
stopped by the police. After the
police started beating them and
began throwing bricks and bottles
the Negroes began retaliating.
Twenty-six people were arrested."
Thursday night there were three
demonstrations and several sit-
ins. "Eigthy people were arrested
including 10 SNCC staff mem-
"On Friday there was another
demonstration and 12 people were
dragged through the streets of the
Negro neighborhood by the police.
After that any cars with whites
in them driving through the Negro
neighborhood were pelted with
bricks and bottles."
Possibility of Violence
Miss Prescod added that the
possibilities for violence were
growing. "People have gotten up
in mass meetings and advocated
an end to the use of passive re-
sistance and the start of more
violent tactics. If there is no
really effective non-violent pro-
test soon there will be a real dang-
er of armed clashes."
There are supposed to be agents
of the Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation in town checking up on
police brutality but we have not
seen them, she said. "They are
supposed to meet with us Mon-
Laune Pritchard, Albany's chief
of police, has denied reports of
police brutality..
This is the second series of
demonstrations in the Georgia
town. Last year, they lead to the
formation of a bi-racial committee
in an attempt to find racial peace.

Sets Revised

The fair housing committee
presented a stronger version of a
proposed fair housing ordinance
to the Ann Arbor City Council
last night.
The new document extended the
definitions of, multiple housing
accommodation, housing unit,
added real estate brokers and
salesmen to the ordinance's cov-
erage, detailed the enforcement
procedures more carefully and
called for a review one year fol-
lowing its adoption.
The fair housing committee said
that their recommendation is not
"complete and final" and that a
meeting is scheduled Wednesday
for discussion of the ordinance.
They hope to make a final recom-
mendation in late July.

mon' to discharge properly our
responsibility," the group said,

Racial Advertising
It is also discriminatory to ad-

tions on housing for sale under
the new document.

fined the type of restraining in-
junction to be sought if concilia-

woman Eunice Burns said the or-

The Michigan State University
Board of Trustees has passed
legislation making the Michigan
State News a community, news-

Dave Harfst, summer editor of
the State News, explained that
this opened the way for any resi-
dent of East Lansing to join the
paper's staff. Formerly member-
ship had been limited to students.
The Trustees also promoted the
paper's advisor, Louis J. Berman,
to the position of general manager.
This puts him in charge of the
overall operation of the paper
with final say in all business and
editorial matters.
Harfst said that the changes,
"definitely won't hurt us, it can
only help the over-all quality of
the paper."
The Board of Student Publica-
tiox. has been enlarged to include
three faculty members instead of
one. The Board also has three stu-
dents and three administrators.

Snow Sees 'T hree Dragons'
Across Graduates' Path
Three great "dragons"-nuclear war, over population and mal-
distribution of goods-must be slain if the mankind is to achieve
a better life, Sir Charles P. Snow of Cambridge University told the
1963 graduates June 8.
Snow, rector of St. Andrews University and a well-known British
scientists and novelist, warned the commencement audience that "the
three great dragons have got to be solved before 2000, before the
graduates are middle aged and while they are doing their best work."
"Three Dragons"
In his rain-shortened speech, Snow listed the "dragons" as:
1) Nuclear war. Now "the first, but the least of the dangers,"
nuclear war's threat comes in the spread of atomic weapons into
unsteady hands. He did not see nuclear war unleached by the United
States and Russia, but nuclear castrophes touched off by accidents
or "insane" governments, unsed to the control of such weapons.
2) Overpopulation. "For many years I tried to shut my mind
away from it. By temperment, I prefer abundance to restriction. But
mankind is too good in reproducing itself."
