Ponder Revising
Medical Program
Joint Committee Considers Plan
To Promote Individualized Study
A joint literary college-Medical School faculty committee is
working out a coordinate program designed to allow selected under-
graduates the opportunity for highly individualized study in medical
or non-medical areas during their senior year in the literary college,
and first year in Medical School.
Three years in the making, this program, while still "highly
tentative," represents the second step in efforts by the University

...gets health advice

Group Urges
Health Care
Terming the care of aged per-
sons within the state's nursing
homes and medical facilities "de-
pressingly bad," an advisory com-
mission to Gov. John B. Swainson
yesterday made 45 recommenda-
tions for the improvement of
health care in Michigan.
Swainson afterwards announced
he would appoint another advisory
board to work for adoption of the
proposals, but doubted whether
any of the recommendations could
be carried out this year.
The major proposal provided
that the governor set up a net-
work of more stringent controls
over state hospital construction
and facilities through the Michi-
gan Health Department.
Facilities Understaffed
"Nursing homes and medical fa-
cilities are, in general, under-
staffed, poorly equipped and, in
many cases, unsafe," the report
"They are so far removed from
the main stream of medical prac-
tice that financing is tentative
and prospects for upgrading are
The study closely followed the
three-year, $384,000 report issued
last year by a University team, al-
though the two statements did
differ in that the new study rec-
ommends an advisory group to
the governor instead of a state
agency with direct authority over
all facets of health care.
Taggart Chosen
Prof. Herbert F. Taggart of the
business administration school was
a member of the 18-man study
The commission also favored a
new dental school and new medi-
cal school within the state, pro-
vided that existing facilities at the
University, University of Detroit
and Wayne State University have
been expanded to optimum size.
The group asked that schools of
nursing "be strengthened and ex-
panded," and endorsed fluorida-
tion of public water supplies.
Other Recommendations
Its other recommendations in-
1) A licensing law giving the
health department authority to
administer regulated standards
and issue or deny licenses for
construction, expansion and oper-
ation of institutions for inpatient
'2) Amendment of present laws
so that "only truly non-profit,
community - oriented boards of
trustees own, operate and control
voluntary nonprofit hospitals;"
3) That the state insurance
commissioner review rates on pre-
payment plans and insurance
plans to insure reasonable prices;
4) That professional organiza-

to integrate more fully the liberal
arts and medical sciences, Prof.
John R. Gosling of the Medical
School, chairman of the joint
committee, said last night.
He noted the proposed program
would provide the students with a
much greater latitude in courses
and academic projects during the
two years involved, in the hopes
of attracting students interested
in a medical career, yet also de-
siring a broad liberal arts back-
Difference in Concentrations
The new program would differ
from the already-established pre-
medical program in that the par-
ticipating students could have any
major they desired during their
undergraduate years, while stu-
dents currently on a pre-med
schedule in effect have that pro-
gram as their major.
The "first step" towards closer
integration comes this summer,
when Medical School seniors will
have the option of spending as
much as the last six months of
their career taking any courses
or conducting research projects in
conjuction with faculty advisors,
Prof. Gosling pointed out.
The proposed program, however,
probably won't be established un-
til fall 1963 at the earliest, As-
sistant Dean Earl Wolfman of the
Medical -School indicated.
Requires Consideration
The new program will be con-
sidered by the executive faculties
of the literary college and the
Medical School prior to its develop-
ment and ultimate adoption.
At the end of their junior year
in undergraduate work, LSA stu-
dents, presumably in the nonors
program or of honors caliber,
would be eligible to apply for the
coordinate program, while still
retaining their field of concen-
With concurrent admittance to
the Medical School, these students
could engage in totally voluntary,
individualized research projects, or
take other courses in the literary
college or Medical School, with

However, he said, the voting of a

financial problems "showed a lack

The pay raise would give law-

in expenses, increased pension
benefits and mileage for two round
trips home per month.

... income tax

Eley Asks
New Tax
For City
A one per cent. city income tax
coupled with a flat rate property
tax reduction was proposed last
night by Democratic Councilman
Lynn Eley.
Eley announced his intent to in-
troduce to City Council next Mon-
day a resolution calling for an
administrative study of the tax.
The tax, like the one recently
enacted in Detroit, would be levied
on both residents and non-resi-
dents. At the same time, property
taxes might be cut $50 or some
similar amount, Eley explained.
Not for Revenue
"I would like to make it clear
that the tax is not designed to
raise revenue. Rather it is to find
a new source of revenue and to
ease the regressive effects of the
property tax," he declared.
Eley's resolution would ask City
Administrator Guy Larcom to de-
termine how much revenue the tax
would produce and the number of
people who live outside of Ann Ar-
bor, but work in the city who
would be affected by the tax.
The income tax proposal follows
a city council decision last Mon-
day to consider joining the Vigi-
lance Tax Committee's fight
against the Detroit tax. At that
time the mayor and the city at-
torney were authorized to inves-
tigate the value of joining the sub-
urban Detroit mayors group.
Creal Won't Talk
Mayor Cecil O. Creal had no
comment on the tax proposal.
However, Republican Councilman
William E. Brandemer said the
city must be careful not to get in
a scrambled tax situation.
"There is too much hullaballu
about taxes. Let the state solve its
tax problems first," he said.
The Council also established a
temporary six month committee
to study manpower needs and the
economic resources of Ann Arbor.
The committee, composed of 10
members, one a city councilman,
one selected from a slate of three
nominated by the Ann Arbor
Chamber of Commerce and one
similarly selected from the Wash-
tenaw County Council of the AFL-
CIO, was proposed by Republican
Councilman Wendell Hulcher last
April. Eley moved the proposal off
the table.
The committee would study
economic development needs, pos-
sible business expansion, employ-
ment needs of local workers, op-
portunities for youth employment
and co-ordination of plans for at-
tracting industry..
The committee's main task will
be to review the work of other
city, county, state and federal
agencies in this area to determine
if a separate, permanent agency is
needed in this field, Hulcher ex-

Notes Need'
For 'Human'
The "human relations approach,
to administration" was described
by E. L. Cushman, Vice-President
of American Motors, in an address
to the Midwest Community College
Leadership Program last night.
In a dinner speech entitled "Di-
m e n s i o n s of Administration,"
Cushman explained that any ad-
ministration must be designed so
that it will facilitate cooperation
between diverse individuals.
Although people are uniquely
different in their goals, motiva-
tion, background and experience,
they can still work together for the
common goal of the organization
under a well-designed administra-
.tion, he explained.
Mutual Respect
Cushman noted that an import-
ant ingredient in administration
is mutual respect. This is especial-
ly true in educational institutions
where members are supposed to be
professionally trained.
Another important factor in
educational organization is the
student, who is the "customer."
Any administration must recognizee
the needs of the people being
served, he emphasized.
Cushman listed six basics of
good management stemming from
The asumption that administra-
tion is an organization of people.
Selection Primary
The first is selection. An indi-
vidual should be carefully chosen
for a position on the basis of at
clear idea of what the job genuine-
ly entails.
He then should be trained so?
that he can do the job effectively1
as possible. This may entail ad-_
vanced formal training such as
graduate classes or i n f o r m a 1
coaching and counseling, Cush-
man said.
Third, the administration must
organize, defining functions for
each job and deciding what powers.
the administrator will keep and
which ones he will delegate.
Information Exchange
There must be an exchange of
information. The problem of com-
munication is one which is never
handled enough, he said, and al-
though the particular techniques
depend on the size and nature of
the organization, communication
s h o u 1 d generally be two-way
through such means as staff meet-
The fifth item Cushman listed
was control.
"The administrator can't abdi-;
cate his responsibility," he said.
This does not mean that he hasE
to perform every decision but he
must keep his finger on the pulse
of the activity within the organi-
The last basic noted by Cush-t
man was compensation to em-
ployes which includes psychic in-
come as well as financial. c

RANGOON (P)-Gen. Ne Win's
ruling revolutionary council step-
ped up its measures to end student
outbursts by closing colleges and
universities throughout Burma
last night.
The action followed rioting last
Saturday in which troops killed
15 students and wounded 27. The
violence was touched off by stu-
dent resentment against a 10 p.m.
curfew on hostel operations.
Soldiers dynamited the two-
story student union building. The
same building was used by Aung
San, father of Burma's independ-
ence, to launch his campaign nor
freedom from Britain.
A council source said the meas-
ures "will serve to emphasize that
the army is not backing down in
the face of student agitation
against the hostel rules."
