Great literature provides uni-'
versal approaches on the world's
vital issues, Prof. Marvin Felheim
of the English department told the
concluding session of the Summer
Educational Conference on "The
Humanities in an Age of Science."
"In all countries - except pos-
sibly the countries behind the Iron
Curtain - men are free to read
literature of international signifi-
cance and form their own opinions
on spiritual values and vital is-
sues," he said.
Across
Campus
The Midwest Community Col-
lege Leadership Program, under
the auspices of the University,
Michigan State and Wayne State
Universities, is presenting a dis-
cussion on "The Administrative
Process" today.
Prof. Max S. Smith, director of
the Community College Corpora-
tion at MSU, Sigurd Rslov and
Prof. Raymond Young of the edu-
cation school will speak from 8
a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Rackham
Bldg.
String Teaching...
The second Summer Conference
on String Teaching; presented un-
der the sponsorship of the music
school will be held today.
Richard Massman of the Ann
Arbor public school system, will
present a forum on "Chamber Mu-
sic for Young Players" at 1:30
p.m. in the Rackham Assembly
Hall.
At 3:30 p.m., Prof. Robert War-
ner, curator of the University
Stearns Collection will discuss
"Historical Stringed Instruments."
Math Education...
The Summer Session is pre-
senting another in its series of
'mathematics education summer
lectures today.
Prof. Robert B. Davis of the
Syracuse University mathematics
department will speak on "The
Madison Project and Algebra for
the Elementary School" at 2 p.m.
in Aud. C.
Forum Lecture...-
"What Is Meant by Quantita-
tive Linguistics?", a lecture spon-
sored by the department of lin-
guistics will be delivered by Prof.
.Gustav Herdan of the University
of Bristol at 7:30 p.m. today in
the Rackham Amphitheatre.
'U' Players...,
The speech department is pre-
senting "The Queen and the Reb-
els," a drama by Ugo Betti at 8
p.m. today in Trueblood Aud.

Prof. Felheim said reliable solu-
tions to man's dilemma could be
found by looking into such mod-
ern novels as William Faulkner's
"The Sound and the Fury" or
Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mocking-
bird" with their compassionate
view of Negroes role in American
society.
Before Understanding
"Such novels have gone far
ahead of any religious or political
group in understanding man's
plight," he asserted.
"Great literature has always
celebrated man's triumph over the
hostile forces of the world and ul-
timately man's love for one anoth-
er," he added.
Prof. Felheim stressed that in
the face of man's problems, great
literature maintains a questioning
attitude and puts emphasis on ba-
sic concepts andipositive values,
especially in racial and political
realms.
Too Much Science
Viewing science and the human-
ities, Prof. Felheim opined that the
failure of traditional religious
faiths to solve problems, has
caused an overemphasis on sci-
ence.
" This has led to certain mis-
leading tendencies in education.
We get crash programs in science
and by the time they are put into
effect the end for which they have
become obsolete. We train too
much toward a scientific goal and
put our faith in externals," he
commented.
No Room Left
As a result, man is denied his
place as central to the moral uni-
verse. He finds unreliable panaceas
when all faith is put in systemsj
offered by psychologists and soci-'
ologists to control men and their
environment, he noted.
However, Prof. Felheim warned,
Gerard To Get
Medical Award
From Leyden
Prof. Ralph W. Gerard, neuro-
physiologist and behavioral scien-
tist at the Medical Center, will be
awarded an honorary degree in
medicine from the University of
Leyden (Holland) next September.
Dr. Gerard is to be honored for
"his great share in the rapid de-
velopment of neurophysiology in
recent years."
The award will be presented
during the International Congress
of Physiologists and Pharmacolo-
gists in Leyden Sept. 11-17. Some
3,500 experts from throughout the
world are expected to attend. Dr.
Gerard will chair a symposium at
the congress.

PROF. MARVIN FELHEIM
. .. triumph over hostility
"it is a mistake to deny science a
place among the humanities. Sci-
ence itself should be a humane
study. It ought to be concerned ul-
timately with the meaning of the
universe and man's place in it -
not just with technical know-
how."
SEEK SOURCES:
1ST Studies
State Funds
How Michigan manufacturers
finance their starts and expansion
is being studied by the Industrial
Development Research Program of
the Institute of Science and Tech-
nology at the University.
Some 300 Michigan firms will be
sent questionnaires dealing with
their financing needs and the
availability of money, and other
capital sources, according to Clark
E. Chastain, who is directing the
study.
These include most of the small
and medium-sized firms, in Mich-
igan's 20 major industries, which
expanded or began operations last
year.
Questionnaires have already
been sent to 13 and are being sent
to 29 more firms this week, Chas-
tain said. Results of the study
should be available. next spring.
"For instance, concerning, avail-
ability, we want to learn whether
adequate bank loans and banking'
services are available locally, in
nearby cities or only in larger
cities such as Chicago, New York
or Detroit," Chastain said.
"We want to know the adequacy
and availability of equity capital
in the state .. . and also whether
medium and small-sized businesses
are using special types of financ-
ing," he added.
Generally, the questions deal
with the specific needs for capital
and the amounts required, sources
approached, such as banks, insur-
ance companies and small busi-
ness investment companies - and
difficulties encountered in obtain-
ing it.

The Midwest Community Col-
lege Leadership Program contin-
ued its study of administrative1
change yesterday, concentrating
on governing boards and the ad-
ministrative theory.
Wayne State University Vice-
President James P. McCormick
viewed the rule of governing
boards.
"It is -generally agreed that the
governing board has the legal re-
sponsibility for the operation of
an institution. How they use this
power is highly controversial and
difficult to pin down," he declared.;
Three Responsibilities
He said that governing board's
main responsibilities w e r e to
choose the institution's president,
control its funds, and to approve,
in general, the typesof programs
offered at the institution.
Board policy may be effected by
pressures from outside sources such
as the local chapters of American
Association of University Profes-
sors or American Federation of
Teachers, federal agencies or
foundations.
McCormick added that strong
institutions exist where autono-
mous boards of control operate.
On a state level, a strong system
exists only where independent
boards exercise voluntary coordi-
nation.
Slow To Change
Prof. Richard Carlson of the
University of Pittsburgh's educa-
tion school said "place bound"
executives are slower to initiate
change than "career bound" ones.
The man who is more interest-
ed in his location rather than his
career is more interested in the
community, stays in his position
longer and therefore do not stir
up any difficulty to gain change,
he said.
The career-minded executive, on
the other hand, is usually quite the
opposite, Prof. Carlson said.
Administrative Groups
Explaining the study of admin-
istrative organizations, Prof. How-
ard Bretsch, associate dean of the
University graduate school, may
be misleading.
Titles do not always tell the
complete story on actual functions
and authority, he warned.
He asserted that overlay studies
of structures is a much more com-
plex, but accurate way of examjn-
ing organizations to determine:
1) The optimum way of organ-
izing institutional goals;
2) Improvement of organization-
al morale;
3) Bureaucratic functions; and
4) Accurate appraisals of the or-
ganization.
To Show Abstracts
At Art Conference
A look at abstract art will high-
light the 10th annual Michigan
Regional Art Exhibition and Con-
ference held July 26 at the Uni-
versity. The public is invited to
attend the conference and exhibi-
tion, which coincide with the
opening of the 1962 Ann Arbor
Street Art Fair.

Prof. Bretsch cited sociometric
functional, power, decision making
and communications as overlays to
a structure chart.
Hold Session
For Helping
Young Writers
Twenty high school juniors from
throughout the state are attend-
ing a two-week writers' workshop
at the University.
During their stay, they are re-
ceiving instruction and consulta-
tion in the preparation of non-
fiction, short story, drama and
poetry from University and other
instructors of English.
The workshop, which ends to-
morrow, is sponsored by the Mich-
igan Council of Teachers of Eng-
lish in cooperation with the Uni-
versity bureau of school services.
It is the first event of its kind in
the nation.
Set Seminar
On Child Study
The University will be one of
eight cooperating institutions to
offer an inter-institutional sem-
inar in child development near
Hartland, Mich., August 5-17.
The others are: Michigan State
University, Wayne State Univer-
sity, Merrill-Palmer Institute,
Henry Ford Museum and Green-
field Village, Western Michigan
University, University of Kentucky
and University of Arkansas.
Work for the seminar is accred-
ited on the graduate level by all
participating institutions.
The seminar will bring together
research and teaching staff of in-
stitutions with special -interest in
child development, and will give
opportunities for both staff and
students to get in personal contact
with people who are carrying
through research in their institu-
tions.
Special emphasis will be placed
upon the relation and implication
of research findings to concepts
and practices in education.

(Continued from Page 1)
ereign body in the state," and ask
for a stay of the Michigan Su-
preme Court decision.
Sen. Farrell Roberts (R-Pon-
tiac), a member of the judiciary
committee, added that the com-
mittee is examining Con-Con
studies on redistricting.
Thayer Warns
Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor) warned that the decision
had created chaos and administra-
tive difficulties. He pointed out
that there was not enough filing
time before the Sept. 11 primary
to both meet state laws and oper-
ational efficiency.
He added that the decision
placed a heavy burden on the sec-
retary of state office as three elec-
tions were being held too close to-
gether.
State AFL-CIO president Aug-
ust Scholle, the initiator of the
successful suit, declared, "I feel
that my position on the Senate
districting matter has been vin-
dicated, and that this can pro-
vide a general restoration of com-
mon sense and democracy."
"It is a more than satisfactory
decision in that it will give voters
quality at the ballot box. I feel the
ruling makes that a factual situa-
tion. What we need now is for
people to overcome their extreme
partisan attitudes," he added.
"Great Victory"
Swainson, campaigning in De-
troit, praised the ruling as "a
great victory for the people" and
"an end to the stranglehold on
progress exerted by a few legis-
lators."
His gubernatorial opponent in
the fall campaign, George Rom-
ney, said the question was wheth-
er the people of Michigan want
both houses controlled by four
counties.
"I firmly believe the people do
not favor this type of apportion-
ment," he declared.
"Quick Action"
He called for quick action to-
ward "more equitable" Senate dis-
tricts with provisions for recog-
nizing sparsity of population as
an important factor along with
density, to prevent "domination"
by a few heavily populated coun-
ties.
Senate Majority Leader Lynn O.
Francis (R-Midland) sharply crit-
icized the court's action. "As a
legislator and lawyer, I think the

Supreme Court is taking over leg-
islative responsibilities.
"I think we've got a packed
court. The majority of them are
UAW and AFL-CIO appointees
and I expected they would jump
at Scholle's beck and call," Fran-
cis said.
Ill-Conceived Decision
"This is undoubtedly the most
ill-conceived, unconstitutional de-
cision ever rendered by Michigan's
high court" House Speaker Don
Pears (R-Buchanan) declared.
"It violates the very principles
of our republican form of govern-
ment, and it endangers the liber-
ties of our nation."
Pears pledged to fight the deci-
sion in every way possible when
the Legislature reconvenes next
week, and added that it is the
"duty of every member of the
Legislature - Republican or Dem-
ocrat - to resist this precedent."
He explained that Michigan,
like 48 other states, has a two-
house legislature, one apportioned
on the basis of population and the
other on the basis of area. "This
is a pattern set by the founding
fathers for our United States
Congress," Pears said.
"Greedy Politicians"
"Virtually every state has used
it since being admitted to the
union. Now suddenly, after 200
years, it isn't good enough for
some greedy Detroit politicians,"
he continued.
The speaker noted that metro-
politan interests control two of

the three branches of Michigan's
government exclusively - the ex-
ecutive and the judicial. "Now
they want to control the Legisla-
ture in a desperate attempt to
wrench the state of Michigan
away from its people. Our Su-
preme Court has played right into
their hands. If this decision is
enforced, it will be the greatest
blow to liberty in the history of
our fair state."
First reaction from other labor
quarters was similar to Scholle's.
Interrupt Speech
Emil Mazey, secretary-treasur-
er of the United Auto Workers,
learned of the decision while
making a speech at the union's
annual retirees' picnic. He inter-
rupted his prepared text to say:
"This decision should make us
all happy. It is a great decision
because it will help to re-establish
true democracy in Michigan. It
will help us to get back to the
principle of 'one person - one
vote', and that's something we
haven't had in this state for a
long time.
"It will correct the present sit-
uation under which 30,000 people
in an upstate county get one state
Senator while 700,000 people in
Oakland County also get but one
state Senator."
Michigan is the seventh state
faced with reapportionment deci-
sions since the Supreme Court
ruled in the Tennessee Case last
March. Eleven other states still
have suits pending.
