New Scheme Set
At Year Sessions
Regents Approve 1963-64 Calendar
With Changed Semester Timing
The Regents yesterday approved the 1963-65 academic calendar
-a plan differing sharply from those preceding it-which is designed
to enable the University to ease into full year operation with a mini-
mal amount of difficulty in fall, 1964.
Under the plan the school year has been divided into three seg-
ments-two semesters and a summer session-corresponding roughly
to the present academic year. However, the two semesters begin about

and are slightly shorter than the
present fall and spring terms.
One Vacation
Orientation for the fall semes-
ter, 1963, is slated for late August,
with classes set to begin Sept. 3.
This first semester will have only
onevacation, extending from Nov.
27 through Dec. 2.
Shortly after this, final exam-
inations will be held, and the term
will end Dec. 21.
The second semester will get un-
derway Jan. 12, 1964. It will be
several weeks longer than first

Mid-June Start
The 1964 Summer Session class-
es will begin in late June, which
corresponds to the present aca-
demic calendar, and will be com-
pleted by Aug: 21.
University President H a r 1 a n

ment, but added that so far as he

The future full year operation
program "will most certainly have
some effect" on the intercollegiate
athletic program at the Universi-
ty, according to Athletic Director
H. 0. "Fritz" Crisler.
"We can't be sure what adjust-
ments will be needed as yet," Cris-
ler states. "The Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics will
have to do a great deal of study
in this area."
The most severe problem which
the trimester program, voted into
effect for the 1963-64 school year
by the Regents yesterday, will pose
for athletic scheduling will be in
the late spring.
Spring Sports
At present the Michigan spring
teams (baseball, track, tennis and
golf) begin play in early April
and finish their Western Confer-
ence schedules the last weekend in
May. This is standard throughout
the country.
Under the trimester program,
however, the spring semester will
be completed early in May, with
the study period before examina-
tions, and the examinations them-
selves, coming in the latter half
of May-right in the heart of the
spring sports schedules.
"We have thought about this,"
Crisler states, "but no decisions
have been made. We could break
our former policy of holding no
practices and contests during study
and examination periods, and the
schedules would need no major re-

To Examine
U.S. Policy
On Contracts
With the spectre of the 20 per
cent limitation for indirect costs
in Defense Department research
grants looming before them, re-
search heads "from about a half-
dozen universities" will confer
within the next few weeks on a
common policy to adopt towards
whether to continue accepting such
grants, Vice-President for Re-
search Ralph Sawyer said yester-
Any hostile opinions directed to-
wards the defense grants will be
tempered, however, by the good
prospects for a provision in grants
from the Health, Education and
Welfare Department which would
increase the allowance for indirect
costs (space and facilities) from
15 to 20 per cent, he said.
The HEW move would give the
University about another $200,000,
Sawyer said. It is uncertain at this
time as to how much the defense
grants, in which the government
previously subsidized the full7
amount of indirect expenses, would
cost the University.
Indirect Costs
Currently, the University finds
that the indirect costs run up to
more than 30 per cent that of theE
direct costs (supplies and salar-
ies) of this grant.
A conference group of the House
and Senate Appropriations Com-
mittees, having approved the 20
per cent provision in the Defense1
Department's appropriation two
days ago, is expected to pass sim-
ilar action on the HEW appropria-t
tion within the next week.
Informal Reaction
Sawyer said the universities'
meeting in reaction to the commit-t
tee would be informal and wouldT
seek only to determine whether1
there is any benefit in adopting ai
common stand towards the revisedt
Last week, when the congres-
sion group was debating the de-x
fense appropriation, Sawyer had
threatened to turn down all de-i
fense grants (which account forc
about $8 million of the $25 millionz
worth of federal reesarch donez
here) and to continue but not in-
crease the amount of grants re-l
ceived from the HEW.i

could see there would be no addi-
tional graduation ceremonies for
Summer Session graduates.
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger W. Heyns noted that
non-academic activities "will have
to progress and change after the
program (trimester) is fully im-
plemented." Heyns expressed his
confidence that this could be done
with only a slight amount of dif-
Announce Exams Later
The Dean's Conference, consist-
ing of the deans of all the various
schools and departments whose
duty it is to prepare the academic
calendar-noted that the exact
time of the examination period for
each school and college, which was
not included in the year's plans,
will be announced early during
each semester.
The Regents also approved two
by-law changes.
The first, proposed by Vice-Pres-
ident for Research Ralph A. Saw-
yer, was intended to permit re-
searchers to be members of the In-
stitute of Science and Technology's
Executive Committee.
Change Rules
The second change relaxes the
rules on duplicate diplomas for
University graduates.
This action came as result of a
complaint by an alumnus who lost
his diploma as a result of a fire
and was upset as a result of Uni-
versity rule.
In other action, the Regents ac-
cepted a $1,200 scholarship grant
which guarantees $600 per year
for two years to a financially needy,
student. While the recipient will
not be expected to pay back this
amount, he assumes a "moral obli-
gation" to establish an opportuni-
ty award in his name, thus provid-
ing a continuing scholarship fund.1

Appeal Validates
Senatorial Primary
Legislature May Not Deliberate
On Reapportionment This Year
Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart put the Senate re-
apportionment problem on ice yesterday when he accepted
three GOP senators' request for a delay in effecting the Michi-
gan Supreme Court decision ordering redistricting.
As a result of the appeal by Senators Paul Younger (R-
Lansing), Frank Beadle (R-St. Clair) and John Fitzgerald (R-
Grand Ledge), the Aug. 7 senatorial primary will be held, none
of the state court's deadlines will be valid, and the Legisla-
ture may not consider reapportioning the Senate this year.
Two Considerations
Stewart said his decision to stay the state Supreme Court
order requiring redistricting on a population basis Aug. 20
or face an at-large election.

was based on two considera-
1) Will the United States want
to review the Michigan case; and
2) Which would produce "irre-
parable harm"-staying the order
or accepting it.
Stewart said the Michigan case
raises a new federal question of
whether the equal protection
clause of the 14th Amendment re-
quires both houses of a state leg-
islature to be on population only.,
No Harm
The justice indicated that stay-
ing the case would do no harm
while not staying might bring
"Important legislation cannot be
enacted in a hurry. This would be
unwilling action by the state Sen-!
ate taken under compulsion and it
might turn out to be unneces-
sary," he declared.
Granting the stay will continue
the present system of election for
one more election, he pointed out.
Lesser Evil
If in the next two years the
Supreme Court invalidates the
Michigan ruling no harm was done
by the delay. If it does the results
are the lesser of two evils, Stewart

Britain, Common Market
Dispute Agriculture Policy
BRUSSELS (IP)-European Common Market negotiations for Brit-

outlets for agricultural products from the Commonwealth remain at
present levels.
"I do not call this a crisis, but perhaps you could speak of dead-
lock," a European delegate commented. Eugene Schaus of Luxem-
bourg, chairman of the negotiations, called the talks fruitful and
yclarifying although they failed to

Heyns Cites
'U' Recruiting
of Professors
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger Heyns yesterday told
the Regents of his confidence in
the University's ability to attract
"good young men" into the faculty.
Much of the reason, he said, lies
in the "gratifying effect on facul-
ty morale" provided by salary in-
creases. Without them, "it would
have been impossible to maintain
our faculty."
Heyns continued that "the in-
creases have helped us to regain
in part the salary position we for-
merly held in relation to our ma-
jor competitors. We have been los-
ing this position steadily during the
past four years, and even with our
excellent action this year, have
only partially regained lost ground.
"To keep pace next year," Heyns
said, "it is certain that we will
have to plan on salary increases,
and in this respect we'll have to
have substantial help from the
state Legislature."
