With little ado at their June meeting, the Regents appointed
Dr. William R. Mann as the new dean of the dental school, and
Prof. Stephen H. Spurr dean of the natural resources school.
Executive Vice-President Marvin L. Niehuss lauded both choices.
He said that Dean Mann, with his "national and international

Swainson's statement criticized:
1) Provisions calling for the
election of some members of the
State Administrative Board and
appointment of others, calling it a
hodge-podge. He urged election of
all Board members-
2) A selection under which in-
terim legislative committees could
suspend rules and regulations of
administrative agencies.
3) A proposed Civil Service ar-
ticle which he said allows the Leg-
islature to "interfere in job place-
ment and salary adjustment."
4) Several finance and taxa-
tion proposals.
5) The fact that self-executing
home rule is denied in the pro-
posed document.
6) A judicial article provision
which removes the governor's right
to fill judicial vacancies, turning
it over to the Supreme Court and
limiting appointment to retired
7) The proposed article on leg-
islative apportionment, which he
called "obscure and unclear,"

LANSING (AP)-The state Sen-
ate voted last night to remove
August ,Scholle, president of the

"for the post, and pointed to "the
respect and enthuiastic support"
for Dean Spurr "from faculty
members in all five departments
of the natural resources school."
Both men were selected by fac-
ulty committees within their
schools. Prospective appointees at
other universities, a review of the-
school's strengths and weaknesses,
and. comments from deans of the
University's 16 schools and col-
leges were considered, before the
decision was reached by the com-
mittee, and then approved by
Niehuss, University President Har-
lan Hatcher and, finally, the Re-
Succeed Retirees
Deans Mann and Spurr succeed
former Deans Paul Jeserich and
Stanley Fontanna respectively.
Both retired effective July 1.
Dean Mann, 46 years old, takes
over supervision of a school whose
major problem, as Niehuss pointed
out, is the "shocking" state of
physical facilities.
President Hatcher added that
"I saw two dental schools ontmy
trip in 'underdeveloped' South
America that were better than
anything we have here."
Dean Mann has been a member
of the faculty since 1940. He also
serves as associate director of the
W. K. Kellogg Foundation In-
stitute and is on the executive
committee of the Office of Re-
search Administration. The new
dean formerly was a member of
an advisory panel for dentistry for,
the World Health Organization.
He belongs to seven professional
and honorary dental organizations.

is recognized as one of the world's
foremost authorities on photo-

Fee Hike
By Board
Increased Funds
To Raise Pay
At a special June meeting, the
Residence Halls Board of Gover-
nors approved a tentative three to
four per cent increase in room and
board rates.
The hike will average out to
$20-30 per resident. Vice-President
for Student Affairs James A. Lewis
said Friday that the larger in-
come would be used to raise the
salaries of residence halls em-
ployees and for new facilities
which will be necessary when co-
educational housing is instituted
in fall of 1963.
Salaries of both maintainance
and other service employes as well
as that of the student staff will
be raised, Lewis said. The board
of governors'had raised the floor
counselor salaries from 40 to 60
per cent of room and board at an
earlier meeting.
The exact rate for room and
board will not be determined until
the state Legislature passes the
budget appropriation for the Uni-
versity, Lewis said.
To Set Role
Of Official
A special Residence Halls Board
of Governors committee will study
and make recommendations for
the responsibilities of a Director
of Housing.
The group's particular charge
will be to look into what structural
relationships should be established
between the director, his advisory
board (a new one which would re-
place the board of governors) and
the Vice-President for Student
The post, approved by the Re-
gents at their May meeting, has
been the only revision so far in
the much-discussed Office of Stu-
dent Affairs, although the man
to fill it has not yet been found.
"It is a whole new directorship
in a whole new area," Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis said in explaining the need
for a further clarification of the
new housing position.
Not Appointed
The committee members have
not been appointed, but Lewis said
he would do so "definitely by fall."
At present he is also viewing pros-
pective administrators and faculty
men, both inside and outside the
University, from which to make
the final choice for the director-
This post was originally pro-
posed by the OSA Study Commit-
tee, which made its report last
The report asked that the hous-
ing director be "an outstanding
person with academic orientation
and experience and demonstrated
qualities of leadership."
"Unequivocal" Supervision a
According to the study commit-
tee, he should have "unequivocal"
supervision of residence halls poli-
cies. He would oversee the busi-
ness office, as well as lay specialI
emphasis on "infusing educational
purposes" into the halls.
The Director of Housing would!
be directly responsible to the Vice-
President for Student Affairs. -

On tExtra Education Funds

W SU, MSU Up Tuition
To Meet Cost Squeeze
Caught between rising costs and slower-rising state appropria-
tions, Wayne State and Michigan State Universities announced last
week their decision to follow the University in ordering tuition raises.
WSU's Board of Governors chairman Leonard Woodcock called his
school's action "a down payment in' good faith" toward the Legisla-
ture, which, he hoped, would respond to the hike with increases of its
'own. The total increase in funds

Debate Value
OfMSU Unit
The controversy over the Mich-
igan State University Labor and
Industrial Relations Center gained
momentum last week with the res-
ignation of Prof. Charles A. Rog-
ers, former associate director of
the Center, who was removed
from that position last year.
The issue will reach a climax
this week when the House con-
siders the budget bill for higher
education, already passed by the
The Senate version included an
amendment which would in effect
disband the center by prohibiting
the use of funds "to maintain or
continue the industries and labor
relations center or any center or
school of a similar nature."
Constitutionally, the trustees of
MSU have full control of their
school's expenditures. Although the
Legislature cannot legally desig-
nate how funds are spent, MSU
presumably would be reluctant to
oppose a legislative ruling, thereby
risking future budget cuts.
The removal of Prof. Rogers,
who according to the resolution es-
tablishing the investigating com-
mittee was the only remairing
management specialist at the Cen-
ter, touched off the investigation
of charges that the center was
pro-labor by a legislative com-
mittee headed by Sen. Lynn Fran-
cis (R-Midland).
Francis explained that sugges-
tions that the Center be organized
under the regular curriculum or
reorganized in other ways were ig-
nored by MSU.

from the new fees will be $450,000
next year.
WSU, which is moving from the
semester to the quarters system,
has announced instate rates of
$104 a quarter, or $312 for a full
year, for students carrying a full
academic load. The equivalent fig-
ure this past year, for two semes-
ters' work, was $280.
Full Load
The out-of-state tuition cost for
a student with a full load has
been $580; the equivalent figure
for next year will be $666.
Woodcock expressed the hope
that the Legislature would match
the added funds by a 4-to-1 ratio,
awarding the school $1.8 million
above its anticipated allotment.
MSU's President Hannah called
tuition rises "inevitable," but said
a decision on how much of a raise
there is to be will wait until the
July 19 meeting of the MSU Board
of Trustees, or possibly even later.
'Fee Hike in Mind'
This past year MSU received
$29.6 million from the Legislature;
the tentative appropriations bill for
next year awards the school $30.9
million. Hannah said this would be
insufficient to cover the expected
increase in costs, and so "we are
building a budget for next year.
with a fee hike in mind."
But the state board of educa-
tion, which controls Western, East-
ern and Central Michigan Univer-
sities, and Northern Michigan Col-
lege, has not yet taken a stand on
the- issue. Lynn O. Bartlett, super-
intendent of public education and
a member of the board, has said
that "we will make no decision'
while the Legislature is in session."
Ask Increase
Earlier this month, the presi-
dents of the four institutions un-
der the board's control asked for
increases-in the neighborhood of
$50 for Eastern, Western and Cen-
tral Michigan Universities and $70
for Northern Michigan College.
But the board members, all
Democrats, viewed the lean ap-
propriation as an attempt to "bull-
doze" the group into approving a
tuition hike. So, for a while at
least, the board has refused to
change present fee rates, which are
$215 for instate, $445 for out-of-
state students.
Gov. John B. Swainson has an-
nounced an effort to add $5.1 mil-
lion to the higher education ap-
propriation this week, thus en-
abling the institutions to cancel
the announced (or unannounced)
fee raises.
College officials are now waiting
to see whether any of this prom-
ised money will in fact materialize.

HONOLULU-Michigan's NCAA-championship baseball team en-
tered the show-down match in its five-game series with Hosei Uni-
versity of Japan for the International Collegiate World Series title
here late last night.
The game started at 8 p.m. Monday Hawaii time (1 a.m. today

To Continue
VRC Facility
Democrats and Republican mod-
erates are expected to attempt to
amend the appropriations bill in
the House this week so that the
Veterans Readjustment Center
(VRC). at the University will not
be forced to close down.
After receiving a $346,000 sum
last year, the center is slated to
get only a final $50,000 so that it
can be "phased out" in favor of a
soldier's home in Grand Rapids
taking over its psychiatric treat-
ment function-if Rep. James F.
Warner (R-Ypsilanti) continues to
have his way.
But concerned University offi-
cials and veterans organizations
are starting to campaign to save
the VRC.

ticular attention was being placed
on the center, an amendment in
the House to restore its normal
appropriation was defeated by six

Retain Upgren
In Dorm Post
After Protest
An Alice Lloyd Dormitory house-
mother, fired during the last week
of the spring semester, has been
rehired for a similar position next
fall, Vice-President for Student
Affairs James A. Lewis said Fri-
Marion Upgren, housemother for
Hinsdale House, had been inform-
ed by Acting Dean of Women
Elizabeth Davenport that her con-
tract would not be renewed.
But Lewis reported that "she
will have a job next fall." Mrs.
Upgren may be assigned to an-
other house, however.
Decline Comment
Lewis declined to make public
comment on either the firing or
the rehiring.
During the three-week interim,
he met with the University Senate
Committee on Student Relations,
which requested the consultation
after receiving complaints about
the move by Hinsdale House resi-
Committee chairman Prof. Mar-
vin Felheim of the English depart-
ment commented that the only
meaningful result of the meeting
was a promise by Lewis to review
the matter with Mrs. Upgren and
Mrs. Davenport.
Prof. Felheim said the situation
was still somewhat unclear, but
that at least part,'of the reason
for the firing was that the house-
mother may have not "gone
through channels" in performing
some of her duties.
Hierarchial Crux
He added that, in his opinion,
the crux of the affair probably
lies in the long hierarchy within
the women's deanship. An indivi-
dual housemother is responsible
to the .dormitory housemother,'
then the Assistant Dean of Wo-
men for Residence Halls, the Act-
ing Dean of Women, and finally
the Vice-President for Student Af-
Aside from the one meeting,
there was no further contact be-
tween Lewis and the Student Re-
lations Committee, whose role is,

Increases in Tuition
Promise "Reward"
In Lansing Today.
City Edit:
special To The Daily
LANSING-The House is ex-
pected to consider all appropria-
tions for the coming fiscal year to-
day, including the Senate-passed
higher education bill, which would
give the University approximately
$35 million.
Speaker of the House Don R.
Pears (R-Buchanan) said he ex-
pected the House to pass the bill
in one form or another in today's
session. The necessary funds will
be available for a slight increase
for higher education, since Goy
John B. Swainson yesterday al-
lowed the nuisance tax package to
become effective without his sig-
Republican leaders are optimis-
tic about finishing their business
quickly. The Speaker said many
members were looking more favor-
ably towards additional funds for
higher education, since most of the
nine state-supported colleges and
universities have raised their tui-
tion rates.
Cautious Estimator
He, was cautious about estimat-
ing the actual boost that might
finally be approved, but he said
that GOP leaders would "scrape up
every dime for education, since
university administrators have in-
dicated their willingness to meet
the Legislature halfway."
He was referring to the tuition
boosts of which the University, an-
nounced last month, will net just
under $2 million in extra funds.
But House leaders hesitated to say
that the Legislature would be able
to match that amount on a paral-
lel basis, as had been hinted earlier
in the year.
The higher education bill, orig-
inally introduced by Senators Phil-
lip O. Rahoi (D-Iron Mt.), Garland
Lane (D-Flint) in the amount pro-
posed by the governor in January,
was amended to its present form
by the Republican majority in the
Senate two weeks ago.
Meet Briefly
Both the House and Senate met
only briefly last night in formal
session and spent the bulk of time
in caucus, preparing for the formal
debate of bills on third reading to-
Neither side could muster the
necessary 56 votes in the House
since the GOP had 2 members
Meanwhile, the Republican leg-
islators heard a blistering attack
on "the vast amount of unfinished
work, responsibilities d u c k e d,
dodged and ignored since last Jan-
uary' by Swainson.
Glib Talk
"The Republican leadership in
January talked glibly of new poli-
cies and new programs it would
produce. It has produced nothing
except new excuses for blockig
progress," Swainson said.
The governor cited education
and mental health as two such
areas of failure.
Joins Board
Prof. Luke Cooperrider of the
Law School was appointed to the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications at the June meeting.
Also at the meeting, the Board
approved a third Associated Press
