Seventy-Five Years of Editorial Freedom
Plans Huge Celebration for Anniversary

in 1967

First of Two Articles
As 31,000 students of the Uni-
versity worry over tomorrow's
bluebook, next week's paper, and
the semester's finals, a select group
of administrators, faculty, and
students are diligently laying the
groundwork for an event so far in
the future that it is still only
circled spots on a calendar. Yet
this event, the Sesquicentennial
Celebration of the University, is
shaping up as one of the largest
celebrations in any college's his-
In 1967, the 150th year of the
University's existence, educators,
scholars, artists, and students
from all over the world will flock

to Ann Arbor in a variety of con-
ferences, celebrations, and cere-
As 1967 approaches, the Sesqui-
centennial's symbol, UM over a
150, will become more and more
predominant on the University's
landscape, and in its publications.
Richard L. Kennedy, the Execu-
tive Director of the Sesquicenten-
nial, described the preliminary
planning of the celebration as
"nearly complete," and added that
the event was now "moving into
the execution phase."
Kennedy and his staff have
been working on the 150th for
close to three years. The main
controlling body is the Central

Sesquicentennial C o m m i t t e e,
chaired by Dean Charles W. Join-
er of the Law School. Composed
of alumni, faculty, administration,
and students, the 16-man com-
mittee oversees the general plan-
ning for 1967.
The theme of the Sesquicenten-
nial is "Knowledge, Wisdom and
the Courage to Serve." It will be
carried out through five major
ceremonies, which form the basis
of the year's celebrations.
-Major Ceremony I will be
dedicated to the Alumni of the
University. More than one out of
every thousand Americans is an
alumnus or student of the Uni-
versity. They reach from the pin-
nacles of industrial corporations
to the heart of government de-
cision making.

The first major ceremony will be
an opportunity to honor the most
distinguished graduates of the
Mother of State Universities. The
celebration will occur on March
1-4, 1967. The highlight of the
event will be a splendid banquet
at Cobo Hall in Detroit, within a
few blocks of the site of the Uni-
versity's first classrooms. The fea-
tured speaker will be President
Johnson plus a host of other dig-
nitaries and alumni. The size of
the banquet is open to conjecture,
though each of the University's
215,000 alumni will receive an in-
-Major Ceremony II will take
place April 26-29, and will center
on "Higher Education in Tomor-
row's World." Representatives from
800 of the world's colleges and

universities will be invited to dis-
cuss the challenge to education in
future society.
This event will be simultaneous
with the 1967 commencement ex-
ercises during which a colorful
procession of the world's academic
leaders will highlight the gradu-
-Major Ceremony III will once
again focus on the role of the
University in society, this time in
the context of "The University and
the Body Politic." On July 12-15,
statesmen, educators and econ-
omists will probe the responsibili-
ties of higher education and the
reciprocal obligations of the public
to the university. Included in this
conference will be a special cere-
mony honoring the representatives

of foreign governments present in
Ann Arbor.
-Major Ceremony IV will bring
to the campus an assortment of
the world's most distinguished
men to discuss the Sesquicenten-
nial theme "Knowledge, Wisdom
and the Courage to Serve." Known
as the "Thirty Great Minds" cere-
mony, it will include scholars,
artists, government leaders, and
authors participating in lectures,
seminars, and informal discus-
sions during the first week of
October in 1967.
Prof. Robert C. Angell, in charge
of the committee selecting the
"Thirty Great Minds" said that
the list of participants will not be
made known until next spring. He
explained that the University is
searching for international and

cultural diversity in its selections.
Attempts are being made to have
as much personal contact as pos-
sible with the "Thirty Great
Minds." Speculation is that classes
may be cancelled for a part of
the week in an effort to take ad-
vantage of the opportunity to meet
the world famous guests.
-Major Ceremony V will be a
world-wide conference on the
population. explosion problem in
developing nations. Researchers
will meet at the University Nov.
15-17 to assess current informa-
tion on this problem and point the
way toward a feasible solution.
All these ceremonies will be de-
signed to inform the student, edu-
cate the citizenry, and bring rec-
ognition to the Mother of State







Hughes Wins!
What's New at 764-1817Huge N.J.

"In the past a general question of the relation of hours to
credit has been raised by members of the faculty," Prof. Sheridan
Baker, chairman of the Literary College Curriculum Committee
said last night. In view of this a possible survey was discussed at
yesterday's committee meeting to delve into this problem.
It was decided that the faculty proposal passed last spring in
regard to the redistribution of hours will come before the Regents
at this month's meeting. This proposal would reduce the credit-
hour requirement of the students by having a required number
of courses rather than a required number of hours. If the Re-
gents pass it, the proposal will go into effect for the fall, 1966
Mayor Wendell E. Hulcher recently asked the Ann Arbor
Board of Realtors to ensure "the immediate availability of up to
a dozen existing renovated housing units for the current emer-
gency needs of families facing eviction or living in substandard
Hulcher's statement came as a reply to a letter by Douglas
V. Wilson, president of the Board, containing the names of five
realtors as suggested appointments to the newly-established
housing. commission. Wilson said that with the closeness of the
vote he felt it is prudent that the commission be composed of
individuals who are specialized in this particular field.
Ben Moore, president of Local 1583 of the American Federa-
tion of State, County and Municipal Employes (AFL-CIO), will
file a petition next week with the State Labor Mediation Board
to be recognized as the sole bargaining agent for the University
employes. Local 1583 is the fourth labor group to file with the
Board requesting recognition as bargaining agent.
The University contends that Michigan's labor legislation,
the Hutchinson Act as it was amended this summer does not
apply to the University and refuses to recognize any union as the
employes bargaining agents.
The Board will decide if the act applies to the University and
which union or unions will represent the employes at an open
meeting on Nov. 23 in Detroit.
"The newly revamped Philharmonic Hall at Lincoln Center,
New York City, is now one of the best halls today," Gyorgy San-
dor, internationally famous pianist said yesterday. Sandor, who
heads the Doctoral Program in Piano Performance here, will play
a Liszt-Bartok recital Dec. 14 at the hall, which recently under-
went a $1.3 million investment to correct acoustical deficiencies.
Sources indicate that the Board of Governors at the Law
* School will be considering over the next five or six weeks the
possibility of a room-rate increase. If any definite action is
taken, it is speculated that an announcement will be forthcom-
ing around February or March of next year. A similar type of
increase was put into effect last year and is in operation at the
A recent editorial in the Res Gesta, the weekly newspaper of
the Law School, stated that such an increase was inevitable due
to a $900,000 renovation plan which is to be supported in part by
student fees. However, it also urged the law students to express
their views as to how the Lawyers Club might cut costs and thus
"minimize the increase." It suggested that perhaps costs could be
reduced by decreasing the staff of the maid or janitorial service.

votes to 883,017 for his Republican
rival, State Sen. Wayne Dumont
Hughes' plurality of over 350,000
was the largest ever racked up in
a New Jersey gubernatorial elec-
tion. He got 58 per cent of the
vote. Only the landslide victories
of President Johnson last year
and former President Dwight D.
Eisenhower in 1956 outstripped
Hughes' tally.
Republican Disaster
The victory took on the propor-
tions of a second straight election
disaster for the Republicans, as
the Democrats took both houses
of the legislature behind Hughes.

led the legislature was when they

Split Tickets Spur
Democratic Sweep
Of Other City Posts
Republican Congressman John
V. Lindsay yesterday won a
solid victory in New York City's
hotly contested mayoral election.
His triumph catapults him into
the forefront of contenders for
the GOP presidential nomination
in 1968 or 1972.
The victory was interpreted as
a catalyst for liberal Republican
forces across the nation.
Widespread ticket-spliting re-
sulted ina Democratic sweep of
most other city posts, including
City Council President and Comp-
With 85 per cent of the city's
ballots counted, Lindsay had
943,000, Beame 877,000, and Buck-
ley 276,000.
The CBS Television Network's
Vote Profile Analysis indicated
that Lindsay would wind up with
45 per cent of the vote, Beame
43 and Buckley 12.
Wide Margins
Beame won by wide margins in
Brooklyn and the' Bronx, both
with large Jewish populations
which swung behind the Demo-
cratic candidate. However, Lindsay
scored heavily in Manhattan,
Queens and Staten Island.
Conservative candidate William
F. Buckley rolled up fewer votes
than had been predicted for him.
He won about 12 per cent of the
city-wide vote.
The result of the contest was
viewed as highly significant for
Republicans throughout the 'na-
tion. Lindsay's victory not only
places him in a favorable position
for a possible future GOP presi-
dential nomination but also in-
creases the strength of the party's
moderate-liberal wing and figures
such as Gov. Mark Hatfield of
Oregon, New Jersey Senator Clif-
ford Case and California Senator
Thomas Kuchel.
Conservative Resurgence
However, political analysts had
contended that a Lindsay defeat,
spurred by Buckley's efforts could
lead to a resurgence of ultra-con-
servative forces.
The lead see-sawed all evening
between Beame and Lindsay. After
Lindsay took an early lead, Beame
surged ahead with a 28,000-vote
lead with 20 per cent of the votes
in. Then, as the proportion of
counted ballots approached 50 per
cent, Lindsay went into a slight
lead, lost it again, and then re-
gained it.
The reporting of returns was
slow because long lines of voters
were at many polling places at the
9 p.m. closing hours. These voters
were permitted to cast their bal-
lots, thus delaying reporting of
final totals. All polling places in
the city are automated.
