Examine Mediocre Students

Unhappy Finland Hosts
Communist Youth Fete,

OSA Restructures Centers of Authority

/ t


In American education, students
with exceptionally fine minds or
with below-average abilities are
studied and charted and in many
cases special programs are set up
for them, to suit their particular
But for the students who fall
somewhere between brilliance and
retardation, there is a notable ne-
glect of opportunities for higher
education, and this represents one
of the biggest problems facing the
country today, Prof. Hans Rosen-
haupt said yesterday.
Prof. Rosenhaupt, who directs
the Woodrow Wilson National
Fellowship Foundation-the larg-
est private fellowship program for
recruiting and supporting potential
college teachers-spoke on "Op-
portunities of American Youth for
Higher Education," the last in the
summer series of lectures on
American Youth, 192.
Intellectual Middle Class
"Continued neglect of the in-
tellectual middle class will bring
about many of the unfortunate
symptoms which were observed in
pre-Hitler Germany," Prof. Rosen-
haupt said.
He asserted that the economic
middle-class, which offered the
most support to German National
Socialism, corresponds to the
"malcontent (intellectual) middle
class permitted to exist," for it
feels lost and generally inferior.
To alleviate this situation, Prof.
Rosenhaupt suggested two reforms
in education:
First, institutions of higher
" learning must formulate a more
lucid perception of their duties
toward their students by afford-
ing vocational training to those
who seek it.
Second, women and men in the
middle range of intellectual ability
must be honored for their own
Honors Emphasized Grades
Commenting on the more ad-
vanced educational methods for
superior students, like the Uni-
versity's honors program, Prof.
Rosenhaupt said that the stress
on their education is "healthy, al-
though it is accompanied often by
a great emphasis on grades.
"However, truly creative minds
not infrequently perform in a
Manner which cannot be measured
objectively," he said.
"At the extreme end of the
scale are young men and women
of modest intellectual abilities."
Remedial Work
These students are very often
kept from passing their courses
in elementary or secondary schools,
or are put into remedial courses,
which often require five in lieu
of the normal four years of study
to secure a high school diploma.
Due to boredom or feelings of

versity died yesterday in the Mid-
land Hospital at the age of 70.

frustration, "they provide a res-
evoir of unused and unchallenged
energy from which the ranks of
juvenile delinquents are recruited,"
Prof. Rosenhaupt noted.
Because they need extra atten-
tion, and because additional time
is also demanded by "exceptional"
students, to little attention is paid
to the need of the vast majority
of youth with middle-range ability,
he said.
No Downplay

In future years, when it becomes
increasingly difficult to be ad-
mitted to colleges, the average
student's position will be consider-
ably weaker, unless precautions
are taken in the next few years.
Actually the manpower need for
this large middle range group is
acute and will become more so
as we advance inautomation.
"Similarly, the country needs
tens of thousands of college teach-
ers of various subjects, who will
require no doctorate to perform
their jobs competently, and herein
might lie the place for such
minds," he concluded.

The help the average
requires should not be
down, for they represent
ture of the country.

SRC Survey Notes Desire
T o D
o Departfrom Cities

"It is perhaps not surprising
that ... nearly 40 per cent of resi-
dents of central cities express a
desire to live further out in the
"It is more interesting that one
fourth of suburban dwellers and
one fifth of residents of areas
within 50 miles of central cities
wish to be further out,' away from
an urban environment.
Writing in "Psychological Re-
search on Consumer Behavior," a
journal published by the Founda-
tion for Research on Human Be-
havior, Professors George Katona
and Eva L. Mueller of the Survey
Research Center declared that "an
entirely new image of the city as
an attractive place to live" must
be created.
Attitudes, Inclinations
Basing their findings on data
gathered in broad-sample surveys
taken of consumer attitudes and
inclinations, the researchers say
that the emergence of shopping
centers, outlying factories and the
disappearance of open spaces are
aspects of urbanization that drive
residents to search for homes
away from the city.
Interview results showed that on
a spectrum of people living in cen-
tral cities (50,000 or more popula-
tion) to outlying areas, the per-
centage of inhabitants preferring
to live closer to the urban centers
(six to nine per cent) was fairly
But, 38 per cent of city dwellers,
26 per cent in suburbia, 19 in ad-
jacent areas, and 25 per cent in
rural areas wanted to move away
from central cities if they could.
(The remaining individuals liked
living just where they were.)
Urban Gripes
The dissatisfied residents com-
plained most about urban aspects
such as noise, traffic, or commer-
cializations, and wished "to be
closer to the out-of-doors." And,
satisfaction with the neighborhood
per se increased (from 60 to 75
per cent) the farther out the in-
terviewees resided.
People desiring to closer to cities
cited transportation problems as
the main reason.
Analyzing these facts, Profes-
sors Katona and Mueller examined

the groups most likely to be mo-
More than half of these people
are renters wishing to possess their
own home. Other potential mov-
ers are predominantly young, hav-
ing lived in their present location
less than six years.
More Space
The majority of these groups
also indicated that they desired
more space. "The wish for more
space was by no means confined
to apartment dwellers; 36 per cent
of home owners" expressed the
same need.
The researchers concede "that
expressed wishes and desires may
be dreams which will not lead to
action." But their figures conclu-
sively show that plans to move are
much more frequent among indi-
viduals dissatisfied with their lo-
cation, neighborhood, or amount
of space.
Therefore, the professors con-
tend that the housing market will
have to respond to these wishes if
its prosperity is going to continue.
"It seems clear that further ad-
justments. of the housing stock to
the needs and aspirations of con-
sumers will be required, in the
years ahead."

Associated Press News Analyst
The Finns asked the Soviet Com-
munists to go away, please, but
the Russians said, in effect, "Look,
lads, we need your country for a
propaganda show. If you don't
like. it, that's just too bad."
And so, in trooped the Com-
munists, using Finland as if it
were the Kremlin's private col-
ony. They did the same thing two
years ago to Austria.
If the situations had been re-
versed and the United States had
acted that way toward its neigh-
bors, the Communists' propaganda
roars would have echoed around
the world. But the democratic
countries seem, to shrug it all off,
as if to say, "Well, the Soviets are
like that-why fight it?"
Finland Unwilling
Finland today is an obviously
unwilling host to a Soviet pro-
paganda show.
When the world Communist high
command decided in Moscow last
year it would stage the "Eighth
World Festival of Youth" in Hel-
sinki, the Finns shuddered. They
recalled that the Communists
staged the seventh one in Vienna
in 1959, after the Russians over-
rode official Austrian objections
with less than polite threats.
Previously the festivals were
held in Communist capitals -
Prague, Budapest, East Berlin,
Bucharest, Warsaw, Moscow. These
did "not pay off sufficiently to
warrant the enormous cost. The
institute for international youth
affairs in New York estimates the
1957 Moscow festival cost $100
King To Explore
Survey Technique
Arnold King, ,president of Na-
tional Analysts, Inc., will speak
on "Efficient Sample Survey for
Management Decisions" 4 p.m. to-
day in Rackham Amph. His talk
is part of the 15th Annual Summer
Institute in Survey Research Tech-
niques, sponsored by the Survey
Research Center.

Like the others, it had been sus-
pect because of the location. More-
over, it had been organized under
the generalship of Alexander N.
Shelepin, once head of the Soviet
Young Communist League and
since 1958 the head of the Soviet
secret police system.
Young people streaming in from
abroad could see for themselves
how life was under Communism.
Non - Communist capitals were
needed. Finland and Austria, with-
in easy reach of the bear's claws,
were elected.
Two Finnish youth organiza-
tions, representing the vast ma-
jority of Finland's youth, hotly
protested a festival in their coun-
try under Communist auspices,
and refused to take part in the
Aims at U. S.
The festival's aim is to turn
propaganda guns on the United
States as imperialist and colon-
ialist, to indicate to young men
and women from Asia, Africa and
Latin America that only through
Soviet Socialism are peace and
national development possible.
However, the festival has not
worked that way as it has been
marked by demonstrations since
its beginning Sunday. Anti-Com-
munist youths have been shouting
anti-Soviet slogans at various fes-
tival activities and the Helsinki
police have arrested 80 demonstra-;
tors so far.
Further the festival has proved
to be an escape hatch for East
European youths fed up with Com-
munism. Reportedly 20 East Ger-
mans have defected since the
opening of the festival. Several
Poles are also reported to have
deserted their delegation.
There must be some dividends
to warrant the high cost. The
masterminds behind these shows
may figure this way: the first fes-
tival was 15 years ago.
By now, participants in that
one are in their 30's, adult citizens

The assistants will also serve
as policy advisers to Lewis. The
vice - president's main advisory
group, however, will be a commit-
tee formed of five students from
Student Government Council and
members of the University Senate
Student Relations Committee.
This new group will be ad-
visory only, with no formal power.
It will meet "from time to time"
with Lewis or his staff, to con-
sider any matter affecting the
OSA. The committee will also be
a channel for suggestions and
complaints from any group, in-
side or outside the University.
To legalize the lines of author-
ity, and to give the vice-presi-
dency clear and final authority
to formulate regulations for the
non-academic life of students,
Lewis has proposed a new bylaw
for consideration by the Regents:
"The Vice-President for Student
Affairs shall have complete ad-
ministrative oversight of student
affairs. Under the direction of the
President he shall represent the
various student affairs offices to
the Regents, the several faculties,
the students, the alumni and other
units of administration.
Rules, Regulations
"It shall be the responsibility
of the Vice-President for Student
Affairs to prescribe student regu-
lations and rules of conduct which
are consistent with actions of the
Regents or other governing author-
ities as designed by the Bylaws of
the Regents."
Lewis also plans to develop by
fall a philosophy of operation for
the OSA, to be based on the edu-

cationally-oriented philosophy of
administration previously adopted
by the Regents.
At the end of the first year for
the new OSA, Lewis will re-
evaluate the effectiveness of the
re-structuring and the philosophy.
If any changes are apparent, he
will then make them.
The directorships themselves will
be run something like this:
Until the director is found,
Lewis, Mrs. Davenport and John
Hale will supervise this depart-
This office will involve only
matters affecting residence halls.
For the time being, Bingley, as
director of discipline and student
organizations, will handle other
types of housing, such as affiliated
units and apartments.
The new director is expected to
form new policies to induce a
more comprehensive academic .at-
mosphere in the residence halls,
and to carry out established plans,
such as those for co-educational

Prof. William E. Welmers of the
University of California at Los
Angeles will speak on linguistics
at 7:30 p.m. today in the Rack-

Bingley will make new recom-

His proposals will be along lines
suggested in the Reed Report: that
judiciaries be consolidated into
one general unit, with an advisory
board, board of appeal and pro-
visions for due process.

ships and loans on the basis of
Until a short time ago, a fourth
directorship-for counseling-had
been strongly considered by Lewis.
"But the more discussion we
had,' he said, "the more itbecame
apparent that the various agencies
for counseling should be under the
direct supervision of the vice-
president," instead of the more
separated and homogeneous direc-

Proposes Cities
Whole cities may have to be
built underground if civilization is
to survive the acute danger of
nuclear war, Prof. Emeritus Wil-
liam A. Paton of the economics
department warned.
Paton suggested relocating ur-
ban housing and production fa-
cilities in critical industries with
a view to improving chances of
surviving in the event of an all-
out nuclear attack in the recent
issue of the Michigan Quarterly
"It is not too difficult to en-
vision an entire city area, includ-
ing transportation approaches and
the necessary means of movement
within the city, both horizontally
and vertically, and all necessary
services underground," he said.
Prof. Paton indicated that mod-
ern engineering is fully capable
of building such a facility.
In general the.-underground city
should not exceed three or four
stories in depth, although in spe-
cial cases a depth of 10 or more
stories may be practical, Prof.
Paton suggested.
