rSix of the University's eight Re-
gents have indicated recently that
they are anxious to begin setting
up concrete plans for selecting the
University's next president.
They have noted that faculty
participation and internal studies
of the University's needs would
be important considerations in
choosing a man to succeed Un-
versity President Harlan Hatcher
when he retires in, 1967.
Hatcher recently affirmed his
determination to retire from of-
fice following the Sesquicentennial
observances. The last of the four
University Sesquicentennial con-
ferences will take place in the
middle of November, 1967.
Frederic Matthaei (Ann- Arbor)

says that the Regents will decide'
on "more specific plans as' soon
as Eugene Power (Ann Arbor)
returns from Japan." He also not-
ed that faculty "have got to be
in the picture."
Two of the Regents, Allan Sor-
enson (Midland) and Power are
currently abroad. Power is expect-
ed back in time for the next
Regents meeting December 17.

While agreeing that the fac-

of some sort in the selection, most
of the Regents stress that the final
decision must be made by them
"The Regents are traditionally
in ultimate charge of these mat-
ters," Brablec says, much as they
are in ultimate charge of any
other appointment to a University
By the same token, President
Hatcher sees his influence on the
final process as primarily advisory.
"Traditionally," Hatcher hassaid.
"the outgoing president offers his
advice and assistance to the Re-
gents to take advantage of as
they wish."
According to the ACE report,
many governing boards have found

a "hands-off policy" on the part
of the president desirable.
William Cudlip (Detroit) says
the Regents will probably be eval-
uating the "state of the Univer-
sity" in the coming months in
order to better determine what
sort of man ought to be invited
to lead it.
The ACE report sees this as a
necessity, considering that the end
process of a presidential selection
procedure is "the matching of a
person and an institution, so that
one meets the other's needs at a
particular moment In history."
Hatcher assumed the presidency
in 1951, after serving as a vice-
president at Ohio State University.
He replaced Alexander Ruthven,
who had served as president since

Implementation of the new literary college distribution re-
quirements is still very much unsettled, inquiries indicated
yesterday. The Regents passed the new plan, with a clause stat-
ing that it would become effective in the fall of 1966 for the in-
coming freshman class.
However, Associate Dean James Robertson of the literary
college said that the new requirements would apply to continuing
students--those now attending the University-as well. Other
officials of the literary college, however, have either denied or
professed ignorance of this statement. William Hays, assistant
to the dean of the literary college, said that he had heard of no
official decision that continuing students would be allowed to
follow the new standards.
The new requirements abolish specific hour requirements and
instead simply state that the student, must take three courses
-two in one department-in each of the three areas of natural
science, social science, and the humanities. Sequences also are no
longer required. All other aspects remain essentially the same.
Usmg a revised fission policy, the University this fall pur-
posely accepted fewer applications for students entering in the
fall of 1966, Byron Groesbeck, assistant director of admissions,
said yesterday.
This delayed-decision plan permits greater flexibility and,
more spaces for well-qualified applications submitted during the
rime time, before Feb. 1, Groesbeck said.
In conjunction with tne plan, literary college standards for
both in and-out-of-state residents have been raised: Michigan
residents must usually be in the top 15-20 per cent of their class
in grades and test scores; non-residents are generally in the top
5 per cent of the class and are Honors program material. Quali-
fications for admission to the other colleges remain the same.
Students can find out about the qualifications needed and
the procedures involved in getting summer internships in Wash-
ington, D.C., at a meeting at 4 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room
of the UGLI today.
Deadline for application for a special new civil service test
for student office and science assistant executive department jobs
is Jan. 3, 1966. Seidors and graduate students interested in higher-
level jobs must apply for the FSEE and the management intern
tests by Dec. 15 of this year.
School board officials were elated yesterday over Tuesday's
school bond vote, which approved the district's largest bond in
history-$18 million.
School Superintendent Jack Elzay termed the yes vote a
"positive response on the part of the voters" in approving the
program, which will result in one new high school, two junior high
schools, four elementary schools and additional classrooms in
present schools.
Only 18 per cent, or 6200, of the eligible voters turned out for
the election, with 3526 voting yes and 2665 voting no.

Solo artists and preliminary plans for the six programs of
the 1966 Ann Arbor May Festival were announced yesterday
by the University Musical Society.
Opening Thursday evening at Hill Aud. May 5, Eugene
Ormandy will conduct the Philadelphia Orchestra in his 30th
anniversary season.
Montserrat Caballe, soprano from Barcelona, Spain, who will
be making her Metropolitan Opera debut in two weeks, will be
the star of this first Festival concert. Orchestral works in-
cluded will be by Handel, Chavez, and Sibelius.
Friday evening, Thor Johnson will conduct the University
Choral Union in Zoltan Kodaly's "Te Deum." Pianist Gyorgy
Sandor also will appear Friday evening, performing Bartok's
First Piano Concerto with Ormandy conducting.
Saturday afternoon, with William Smith, associate con-
ductor, Joseph de Pasquale, principal violist, will play Handel's
Concerto in D minor. Other works on the program are Proko-
fieff's "Lieutenant Kije Suite" and Tchaikowsky's Fifth Symphony.
Eugene Ormandy will be honored Saturday night in this,
his 30th anniversary year as Music Director of the Philadelphia
Orchestra and his 20th visit to Ann Arbor. An all-orchestral pro-
gram will be featured: Toccata and Fugue in D minor (Bach-
' Ormandy), Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 and Brahms' Symphony
No. 2.
Sunday afternoon, Thor Johnson returns to the podium to
conduct soloist Claudio Arrau in the Liszt Second Piano Concerto.
The Choral Union will also perform again in Leonard Bern-
stein's "Chicester Psalms" and the Delius "Requiem."

'Great Dates' Idea

What ever happened to Search
and its five great dates?
To make a long story short, the
date cards for each student, which
w e r e originally run through
Search's IBM computer, were
damaged. On a second try they
were punched incorrectly, and
they now are going through their
third punching to see if Search
can supply those five great dates,
David Yuille, organizer of Search,
If, however, University students'
cards come out incorrectly for a
third time, Search will refund the
students' $3, he added.
Search advertised in The Daily
throughout the last two weeks off
September and then was notw
heard from again except for a
brief item in The Daily's personal
columns a month later which said
Search was coming.
