Can a student in the literary college take any courses in the
architecture school? How do you go about it?-A.S.
Theoretically, students in the literary college may take up to
12 hours for credit in another school simply by electing the de-
sired courses during pre-registration.
However, because of over-crowding in architecture and de-
sign, it is extremely difficult for a non-A&D student, to enroll in
the school's courses. The best way to go about taking an archi-
a tecture or design course under these conditions is-to get permis-
sion of the instructor involved.
Why does the Michigan Union magazine stand carry the Na-
tional Review and not the New Republic or the Nation? Where
can I purchase copies of'these publications?-B.S.
Stofflet News Service, which supplies magazines for the Un-
ion, does not carry either the New Republic or the Nation and
reports that they know of no national syndicate which does.
International Circulation is responsible for distributing the Na-
tional Review.
The Blue Front Cigar Store will periodically carry the New
Republic, but has never carried the Nation. It receives the New
Republic directly from the publisher, but has not been sent a
shipment for two weeks. The best means of obtaining copies of
either magazine is to subscribe to them directly.
As a second year law student, I have lived in Ann Arbor con-
tinuously for over a year. I have not been to my parent's home
for an extended stay in over two years. However, I was not allow-
ed to register to vote in Ann Arbor because, according to City
officials, "your parents contribute something to your support."
I pay for about two-thirds of my school expenses by myself and
cannot see why these are sufficient grounds for not letting me
vote. What are the specific state regulations?
You are not necessarily disqualified to vote because you are
not entirely self-supporting, according to the Student Housing
Association. The specific Michigan statute reads, "No elector shall
be deemed to have gained or lost residence while a student at any
institution of learning."
Try going to the City Clerk's office on Monday and ask to
see Mr. Bentley, the Ann Arbor clerk. If you run into any further
problems, ask to speak to Jacob Fahrner, the city attorney.
A recent Michigan Attorney General's opinion has broadened
the definition of a. resident' to "a student attending school or
college who has no intention of returning home, but is not certain,
as to the place of his future residence; or where the student is free
from parental control, regards the college town as his home, and
has 'no other home to which to return in case of sickness."

Intramurals and student recrea-
tion at the University have gone
steadily downhill over the past
several years and prospects for
improvement appear dim.

the finest intramural program in
the country. The aging building on

mural use. It's construction be-

In the words of the University's
associate intramural director, Rod-

University's IM program was the
largest in operation. We were a
prototype for many of the best

pied the highest position, but now
are far below that. In my opinion,
we are no longer among the lead-
ers. In essence, we are operating

Medical Journals Print: Original

Students who could publish the
results of original research in pro-
fessional journals might be con-
sidered intellectual rarities in most
fields. In the University's Medical
School, such events are taken al-
Imost for granted.
Last year, for example, 18 med-
ical students contributed and had
published their discoveries in 32
different articles. Their projects
ranged from the analysis of blood
transfusions in utero to pinpoint-
ing the site in a rat's pituitary
gland where a hormone is produc-

This program consists of an aca-
demic honors program, headed by
Dr. Robert A. Green, and a stu-
dent research program, headed by
Dr. David Bohr.
Dr. Bohr is the chairman of
the Student Research Committee
which draws its members from the
18 major departments of the Med-
ical School and other research
complexes like the Mental Health
Research Institute and Kresge

Intramural officials were cri-
tical of the fact that no recrea-
tional provisions had been made
available for students moving in
this fall. Hunsicker, for one, was
disappointed. "There have been no
provisions for recreational facili-
ties up there," he commented. In
a recent faculty meeting, he used
the term "cannibalizing" to de-

campus facilities looks rather dim'
for North Campus students. Be-
cause the time schedule for in-
door and outdoor IM activities is
completely filled, no provisions can
be made for North Campus resi-
dence hall teams.
Softball Casualty
The first casualty of the intra-
mural program was softball. It
was eliminated this year partly
because of the loss of the two
fields adjoining Stadium Blvd.,,
which were used by 52 teams a
week. The shortening of the aca-
demic year under the trimester'
system was an additional consid-
Riskey feels that if the space!
were available, the IM programj
could be greatly expanded. He
noted, "Ohio State has 400 touch
football teams, compared to the
University's 250, and we could
easily have that many if we only
had the room."
Hunsicker explained why the
growth of the intramural program
has not been apparent in recent
years. "If I wanted to pour 80

gallons of water into a pint jar,
I still wouldn't be able to get more
than a pint of water into it. That's
the way it is with the intramural
and physical education programs.
"In many instances, we are not
able to allow students desiring to
enroll in an optional physical edu-
cation course to do so," he con-
The first question that comes
to mind is how the situation slip-
ped to its present state. William
Steude, director of student-com-
munity relations, feels that the
problem is most properly viewed
within a national framework. "I
like to consider our difficulties as
only part of the whole-the ex-
ploding population and the growth
of leisure time."
Agreeing with that view, Crisler
commented, "The work week will
eventually drop to 36 hours and
then to 30, just as it once dropped
to 40. We must provide ways for
people to spend their leisure time."
Steilde added: "Community-Uni-
versity cooperation in the alloca-
tion of open space, the construc-
tion of North Campus facilities,
the faculty interest in securing
recreational areas for the Uni-
versity community as a whole, and
the consideration that resources
of a new order will be required to
solve these problems should all be
kept in mind."

jects might begin informally with
the student approaching a faculty
member with a special problem he
wanted to investigate. Or the
teacher, observing the lab work of
a st'udent, might suggest that he
try his hand at independent in-
vestigation in areas where the ans-
wers are not known.
Students are compensated forl
their research as much as possible.
The expenses usually come out of
the faculty member's research
grant given by such agencies as
the National Institutes of Health.

research fellowships, given by the
Michigan Heart Association anad
other organizations.

The student who volunteers for

addition, bi-weekly seminars are
held on approaches and research
techniques. Each year, completed
projects are presented at the Stu-
dent Reserch Forum, sponsored by
Alpha Omega Alpha, the medical
honor society.
The Forum is an official event
of the Medical School calendar;
classes are dismissed for an after-
noon so students and teachers
may attend. The student giving
his presentation must be able to
stand up in public, give his data,
and take feedback from the audi-
ence. Dr. Bohr calls such interac-
tion "often as useful and incisive
as the presentations themselves."

ing to Dr. Bohr. The value of stu-
dent research is to expose the stu-
dent to a feeling. of personal in-
volvement in new information so
he will keep the habit all his life,
according to Bohr.
One physician who graduated in
1937 after having done research as
a student presently returns to the
University every two years for
post-graduate courses. "His ex-
perience in research has made him
familiar with the evolution of
knowledge and given him a heal-
thy concern over the brief half-life
of the knowledge," said Bohr. "He
must keep up and he knows it."

UMSEU Stresses Research

The University of Michigan Stu-
dent Economic Union has shifted
its emphasis, a recent interview
with ex-president Barry Bluestone,
'66, revealed. UMSEU, which in
the last two years has been con-
cerned primarily with specific in-
cidents of student economic diffi-
culties, will now generally focus its
attention on equal educational

that the high cost of a college
education significantly discrimi-
nates against a large number of
students. "In many cases," com-
ments Bluestone, "the student
from a lower middle class family
must give up the idea of going to
a school like the University be-
cause he just can't afford it." This
"de facto financial discrimination"

need. Bluestone believes that only
an overall lowering of costs or
even totally free higher education
can alleviate the present situation.
The decision to cease active in-
volvement in campus economic
issues was made by UMSEU mem-
bers at the beginning of the se-
mester. Many of the members who
