EdSchool ust e lassrooms, Borrow


From the janitor's closet office
on the top floor of an old frame
building to the shower-room of-
fices in the basement of Univer-
sity High School, the education
school is faced with growing facul-
ty dissatisfaction caused by lack
of adequate facilities.
"We are hanging on desperate-
ly" says Charles F. Lehmann, as-
sociate dean of the school. "We
can't go on indefinitely" with the
present space shortages.
For more than the last ten years
the. school has planned for and
requested new facilities to accom-
modate its growing needs, but has
been able to take only temporary
One such measure is a two-story'
office addition to the top of Uni-
versity High School, planned for

in the original construction of the
high school in 1929, and requestedI
by the education school planningi
committee in 1961.1
This is now in the capital outlayI
request for 1967-68. "We requested1
it in 1961 because we needed it
then, and we have needed it every
year since then. Now it won't be1
ready until at least 1970.";
Lehmann says that if and when
this addition is completed it
should be sufficient to get the
education school out of the space
it occupies above the Ann Arbor1
Bank at East University and South
The school moved offices above;
the bank as a temporary measure
in 1963. This added about 25001
square feet of much needed space.1
But the move was considered
temporary because the school was;
planing to move into a new edu-

cation school building on North
Campus. This building, planned:
for and in the capital outlay
budget from 1954-55 through 1964-
65, was dropped without any no-
tice or reason given to the school,
says Lehmann.
This building, along with a new
University School (the education
school's laboratory school) build-
ing which was in the ,apital out-
lay budget from 1957-58 through
1962-63, is still listed in the Uni-
versity's "Buildings Under Study"}
Lehmann has a thick file on the
school's communication with the
administration requesting more
facilities and describing Lhe
school's needs. Although adminis-
trators have met often with the
education school's administration
and appear to understand their
problems, the school has been un-

able to get more than just enciuh. the education school could use it.

These facilities contain only
seven classrooms, not nearly
enough to provide classes for the
more than 2,000 education school
students plus the approximately
600-800 students from 11 other
schools who take education courses.
"We go begging for classes," says
Lehmann, noting he had just

Monday, Wednesday and Friday
mornings, and planned to see if

major problem is finding auditoria
for classes of 160 students.
One of the biggest headaches
facing the education school ad-I
ministration is finding offices for
the faculty. Lehmann admits there:
is growing dissatisfaction with the!
types -of offices the education fa-
culty must use.
Professors come to the educationf
school from other universities
where they had modern offices.
When they get here, often attract-'

they are shocked to find them-x

'U' Professor Attends
Europe Conference, j
Discusses Process
MUNICH, Germany-Prof. Ter-
ry Kammash of the nuclear en-
gineering department yesterday
outlined mathematical refinements,
he has made in developing tech-
niques for obtaining power from
a controlled Hydrogen-Bomb re-
action (fusion).
Kammash reported his results
to members of the European Con.
ference on Controlled Fusion and
Plasma Physics. His primary con-
cern has been with controlling
the temperature gradients in the
gaseous cloud of electrically
charged nuclear particles, known
as plasma.
By raising the temperature of
the cloud through electromagnetic
"squeezing," light-weight atomic
nuclei can be made to form a
heavier nucleus with the release of
energy. Problems have arisen over
the years with instabilities in the
squeezing process.
The eventual goal of the scien-
tists gathered at the Institute forl
Plasma Physics here is to achieve
a sustained fusion reaction which
would extract cheap fuel in abun-
iant amounts from sea water.
Many experts predict such a ma-
chine would effectively solve the
world's energy needs for thou-;
sands of years.
Research on controlled therlio-s
nuclear reactions has reached a
$20 million annual budget in the
U.S. since work began on the pro-
ject after the R-Bomb was ex-
ploded in 1952. Kammash's studies

Russian support for fusion ma-
chines and theoretical studies have
risen over the years to twice the
U.S. effort. A study last summer

iod to catch-up on the field of in-
stabilities in the fusion process.

Discus Possibility
Of Future Michigan
Computer Center
Members of the State House
Subcommittee on Higher Educa-
tion Appropriations visited the
University Center for Research on
Learning and Teaching yesterday
to inspect plans for a proposed
state - wide educational computer
Following the visit, Rep. Jack
Faxon (D-Detroit), chairman of
the subcommittee, said that CRLT
"represents a pioneering effort to,
meet the educational needs of the
future by developing the tools and
techniques for the future. The
computer network will .cost a lot
of money and it will take many
years before a project of this kind
will yield any results, but it is
essential that we take some leader-
ship in Planning for the great
numbers of students that wse an-
ticipate in higher education in the
years to come."
Both Vice-President for Aca-
demic Affairs Allan F. Smith and
CRLT director Stanford Erickson
expressed satisfaction on the
meeting with the legislators.
At CRLT, the subcommittee was
given an explanation of the inter-
school computer network project.
A demonstration of an educational
computer was planned but, due to
technical difficulties, the demon-
stration had to be cancelled.
Last year, the University re-
quested funds from the legislature
to set up a prototype computer
network but no money was appro-
priated. A request is expected this
year, but the exact form of that
request is not yet certain.
Smith declined comment on the
budget r e q u e s t pending this
month's Regents' meeting Oct. 21.
Normal operations of the Center
are financed from University gen-
eral funds.
The planned intra-state com-
puter network is designed to make
the resources of the University
available to other institutions in
the state.
