:,rs, notably Lee Davis as Les-
caut, Manon's cousin; William
Hall as de Btretigny a trio ,of
Parisian coutesans who flut -

tered and flirted, recalling t h e
belles of C'osi Fan Tutti; a ni d
WalIter Richards on who play-
ed Dies Grieux's father.
Maestro Blatt's orchestra was
as together and as knowledge-
able as the singers. It is from
here where the r'eal control of
the overflowing emotion miust
comje; Massenet's melodies must
be ptn'e and sweewt, but they can-
not be overpowering or I h°
opera's balance wvill be des-
troyted. The small group's en-
semnble and precision only
pointed out as more startling the
troubles they had neai' the end
of Act II.

The st and costumes are
opulent without suffocating. The
velvet and creamy wood of Act
II moves to the br'illiance of
an aristocratic garden w it h
Manon in diamonds and gold
brocade. A simple scene of
gnarled w ood and stone closes
the opera, silently deprecating
the richness which p)1ecueded.
Perhaps, a fte r all, MNation is
too romantic an opera, is too
filled with sweeping crescend-
oes and sugatry melodies; but
when offered by such compe-
tent ar'tists, it seems it can even
move one who knows the beaut-
ies of the straight line.

Such plans are indefinite at
present, pending further action by
the Regents, Ross said.
The resolution approved by the
Regents also proposed separate
budget status for' Flint College,
Dear'born already is listed sepa-
rately in the state High~i" E euca-
tion Appropriations Act.
Overseeing Flint and Dearborn
development will be Dean Stephen
H. Spur' of the graduate school,
who was appointed yesterday to a
new University vice presidency
created especially for' that pur'-
pose, Spur'r will continue as head
of the graduate school.
"The commitment of the Uni-
versity, on instruction from the
Regents, is to build strong, viable
operations at both Flint and Dear-
born,", President Robben Fleming

said, commenting on the question
of eventual independence for the
two campuses. "The future will
take care of itself."
Fleming also emphasized the
importance of continued growth
and the strengthening of adminis-
trative structtu'es at each campus.
He said neither school should be-
come a mir'ror image of the Ann
Arbor' campus.
'The recomnmendations on which
the Regents acted were the result
of -rep~orts by planning committees
made up of faculty members, stu-
dents, community leaders, and
University administartors. The re-
ports were presented to the Re-
gents by Fleming and other exe-
tive officers.
