Henry Philip Tappan, who became the University's president
in 1852, advocated the "rather controversial idea," said President
Hatcher, "that a university professor should engage in research
as well as teaching. The matter still is under discussion in some
quarters in 1967."
The Tappan administration was having trouble obtaining
funds from the state legislature, said President ,Hatcher. "then
as now."
Current criticism about speakers and subjects discussed on
the campus may be traced to the Tappan period, Dr. Hatcher
said, when "speakers of national prominence began appearing
in Armn Arbor under the auspices of the Students Lecture Associa-
tion." Subjects being discussed at the University in the mid-
1850s, Dr. Hatcher related, were "shockers such as 'Do Brutes
Reason?' and 'Do Benefits of Novel Reading Compensate for Its
Injuries?' and 'Should Students Form Matrimonial Engagements
While in College?'"
The community considered the University "godless" and
"morally corrupt" and President Tappan, charged by a newspaper
with being "un-American," had to defend the students before the
For all the difficulties of the Tappan administration, Presi-
dent Tappan was described by a successor, several decades later,
as "the largest figure of a man that ever appeared on the Mich-

an academic course which earned for the irnstitution the accolade
"mother of state universities."

THE UNIVERSITY STUDENT VOTE may have been the de-
ciding factor in Monday's third ward city council primary elec-
tion, according to Tom Van Lente, '67, chairman of 'the Student
Housing Association.
Van Lente state yesterday that the voter registration com-
mittee of his organization registered five hundred students in the
third ward for the primary election. The committee contacted
these students three times on election day, and apparently most
of them voted. Van Lente feels that the turnout of nearly 20 per
cent of the third ward's registered voters, which was over twice
as large as the 1964 turnout, was a result of the student vote.
The voter registration committee, headed by Michael Koeneke,
'69, hopes to register a larger number of students for the city
election to be held in April. The goal of the committee is to
register 600 students in the second ward and 200 additional
in the third ward.
