The residence college is being put together bit by bit.
Its planners are utilizing the summer months to gather
background data onhinnovations in buildings, curriculum and
Come fall, these planners-a faculty group headed by As-
sociate Dean Burton Thuma of the literary college--will pool
their material to set the specifications for the 1200-student,
self-contained undergraduate college.
It is to be situated and administrated autonomously
from the rest of the campus. The location is a 40-acre tract
between Fuller Rd. and the
Huron River at the gateway to
Precisely what and where the
final clump of buildings will be
remains uncertain, since "a
"residential college of this type
is unique in American educa-
tion," Thuma observes. Two
members of the faculty plan-
ning committee for the college,
Prof. Theodore Newcombe of
the sociology department -and
Prof. Alan Gaylord of the Eng-
lish department, will bring
back first-hand accounts of
- hsimilar experiments on the west
In addition, the group will
' springboard t h e i r thinking
from a series of guidelines
hatched by the literary college
DEAN BURTON THUMA faculty. A first major question
will be whether to launch the liberal arts unit in its own
buildings-yet to be planned-or start a pilot group in West
Quadrangle in 1965.
Beyond that, here's a rundown on what the planners know
and must decide:
-The 1200 students will live in a complex of dormitories
housing from 150-200 residents apiece. These residence halls
will offer a choice of living units varying from suites to
apartments for married couples, Thuma explains.
Herbert Sigman, secretary of the faculty planners, noted
their concern "with how to make dormitory living appealing
for upperclassmen." He elaborates that the majority of upper-
classmen usually evacuates the current residence hall system
for apartments or Greek life. Those who stay do not interact
effectively with the freshmen, he says.
In the residence college, where the hope is that students
voluntarily remain for all four years, the loss of older students
would rob the educational process.
-Clustered around the residence halls will be the academic.
buildings. These structures should be conducive to innovation
in learning and teaching, particularly facilitating independent
study, according to Prof. Stanford Ericksen, director of the Cen-
ter for Research on Learning and Teaching.
-Once educational ideas are sufficiently concrete, the
planners will be prepared to create the "bricks and mortar"
plans for their product. Already John McKevitt, assistant to
the vice-president for business and finance, has begun "site-
planning" with an architectural firm.
The planners will have about nine months, starting in the
fall, to draft their educational and physical blueprint. This
would permit a 1968 inauguration.

Goldwater picked up between six
and eight first ballot delegate
votes after a meeting yesterday
with Gov. George Romney and the
Michigan delegates to the GOP
It appeared that Romney is los-

48 delegates, the Detroit x! ree Press
reported. Besides the delegates

water, from nine to 15 others were
reported inclined to him.

Goldwater had at best six votes.

While Goldwater refused to
comment on the situation, a field
coordinator of his, Richard Klein-
dienst, said that the Arizonian
had 10 positive votes.
"We really don't need them, be-
cause we have enough to win the
nomination," he said.
Goldwater spent more than an
hour with the delegates and Rom-

swered prepared questions.
"The senator received a rising
ovation when he got through
(with the questioning)," Romney
said later. "I wasn't entirely satis-

THIS IS THE formerly vacant lot next to the Phoenix Project on North Campus. Protestors covered
it with 200 of their cars yesterday in protest over changes in University parking regulations. Plans
are to do the same thing today and tomorrow and await consideration by the University. The pro-
testors complain that conditions do not warrant the regulations; the University considers them nec-
essary to expand the Central Campus parking plan and alleviate traffic and parking problems.

two days later at the edge of a

"I felt after I got off the bus
as if I were in a foreign country
in which a war was going on,"
Rev. Paul R. Dotson said last
night in the first of a series of
lectures sponsored by the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation.
Dotson recently returned from
civil rights work in the Mississippi
town of Hattiesburg, where he was
helping register Negro voters. He
was received with what he called
"Southern hospitality: Mississippi
style." On his arrival the local
civil rights headquarters was
stoned by belligerent citizens.
Dotson discussed the opposing
beliefs in the South on segrega-
tion. "You have a hard time be-
lieving that people think the
Negro must be kept in his place,"
he said. "People who try to change
these ideas are called meddlers".
Dotson described the state as
a closed society seeking to exist
in a pro-slavery atmosphere. He
noted that the well intentioned
white man of Mississippi is a
captive of this society.
Dotson told of his experi-
ences in meeting various southern
white people. "Almost 60 per cent
of the police in this area were ru-
mored to be members of the Ku
Klux Klan: police by day and
hate-seekers by night," he said.
Of the 7200 Negroes of voting
age in the area, only 12 were
registered when he arrived in
Forest County. Through civil
rights efforts and federal action
300 were registered for the recent

Seek Talks with 'U'
To Continue Protests
By ROBERT HIPPLER
Over 200 North Campus person-
nel staged a 'park-in' on the lawn
next to the Phoenix Project yes-
terday, protesting new North
Campus parking regulations which
went into effect at the same time.
The protest move also spread
to the University's Plant Depart-
ment facilities in the old Hoover
Ball & Bearing Co. plant, with
large numbers of employes park-
ing their cars along the street
instead of in the lots.
The Traffic Bureau of the Ann
Arbor Police Department recorded
the license numbers of all who
parked their cars in the vacant
lot, the police department said.
Another source confirmed that all
cars were given warning notices
stating that they were subject to
possible removal from the lot.
However, John W. Walters, ad-
ministrative assistant for parking,
said yesterday that "we are not
going to have the cars towed off
during the three-day protest per-
iod." The protestors plan to keep
'parking-in' today and tomorrow
and are awaiting consideration
from the University.
Until yesterday, all parking
places on North Campus were free.
Now there are about 100 free
places left, since the University
has installed 150 parking meters
and made 650 parking spaces
available only to those with $25
The installations and regula-
tions were part of a University
plan to integrate North Campus
into the scheme of the Central
Campus parking plan. "We feel
that this is the year to move, be-
cause we must solve the growing
problems of parking space," Wil-
bur K. Pierpont, vice-president for
business and finance, said. "More
students are parking on North
Campus all the time."
The piotest group met later in
the day and issued an open letter
stating their position and seeking
a one month moratorium "during

Negroes Prove Change Possible in U.S.
By CHRISTINE LINDER"
The greatest contribution of the Negro to American society is
showing that the tools available in a democracy can be used suc-
cessfully to solve his problems, Luther H. Foster, president of Tus-I
kegee Institute, said yesterday.
Essentially optimistic about the outcome of the Negro's struggle
to obtain the same rights as other citizens, Foster spoke at the
opening of a summer lecture series, "The American Negro in Tran-
The last decade has marked an acceleration of attempts to
promote full, responsible Negro citizenship, Foster declared. Although
segregationists remain admamant in some areas, it is evident that
the whole structure of American society is being reshaped to en-
courage equal participation of all citizens.
Not Yet Full-Fledged
Although much progress has been made in this transitional per-
iod, the Negro has not yet taken his place as a full-fledged citizen,
