Liberal Arts Courses
Added, Program To
Begin Next Fall
By MEREDITH EIKER
Curriculum changes which will
expand the University's five year'
architecture program into six
years were presented yesterday by
Prof. Joseph Wehrer, chairman of
the Curriculum Committee, at an
open meeting of the architecture
school's Student-Faculty Commit-
While some elements of the!
longer program have already been
incorporated into the current cur-
riculum, the entire proposal awaits
final administrative approval and,
approval of ,the Regents. Wehrer
said that partial implementation!
of the new six year program
would hopefully begin next fall.
Wehrer explained that the cur-
riculum change has been evolu-
tionary rather than revolution-
ary, with movement toward the
extended program gaining momen-
tum during the past two years. He
pointed out that the faculty has
been long concerned with offer-
ing students an adequate prepara-
tion for an architectural career.
The University's present pro-'
gram in architecture, Wehrer not-
ed, is one of "highly fixed in-
struction" in which virtually every
course is specified. The six-year
program has been developed to-
ward providing students with suf-
ficient flexibility and opportunity
for gaining a variety of skills and
interests. Primary among the
changes to be instituted in the
six year curriculum will be a two
year pre-architectural study pro-
gram with loose specifications in
the area of liberal arts.
During these so-called pre-pro-
fessional years, students will take
courses they are most interested
in and which they feel will relate
most directly to future architec-
The four years of professional
study will also be open to a wide
range of elective courses with a
basic core program. The student
will be able to expand upon his
strengths as he discovers them and
choose electives, in both profes-
sional and general areas. Ar-
rangements are being made now,
Wehrer said, with, other schools
in the University so that archi-
tecture students will have access to
courses in landscape architecture,!
engineering, or liberal arts accord-
ing to his interests.
One option currently being plan-
ned may enable students to re-
ceive a degree from the literary
college while pursuing the profes-
sional degree in architecture.
Wehrer outlined the three ma-
jor aspects of the architectural;
curriculum which the student will
integrate in his studies under the
headings of :man and environ-
ment, building technology, and de-
sign theory and method.
Man and environment will deal
with human problems in an en-
vironmental context, while build-.
ing, technology will stress struc-
ture and the translation of tech-
} nology into society in physical
terms. Design theory and method,
Wehrer continued, will help the
student organize his approaches
to the solving of architectural;

FEDERAL COURT JUDGE Charles T. Thorton of Detroit
has asked the Selective Service to turn in the draft files of six
University students who had been reclassified as 1-A for sitting
in at the Ann Arbor draft board last year. Thorton warned

YOUNGSTERS UNDER 16 should not be allowed to drive
motorcycles on Michigan highways, Attorney-General Frank
Kelley said yesterday. Kelley called for licensing a motorcyclist
the same way an automobile driver is licensed and for courses in
driver education that include motorcycle instruction.
Kelley said that he will propose legislation that would re-

Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard L. Cutler said yes-
terday that he does not view his
newly won disciplinary powers as
"a charge to me to exercise sum-
mary or arbitrary authority over
any student or student group."
In a letter to all University
deans Cutler offers his interpreta-
tion of the Regents' decision last
Friday to give him all non-aca-
demic disciplinary powers former-

istrators, academic deans, and the

Cutler says in his letter he plans
"to involve as broad a segment
of the community as possible in
the development of an effective
and workable system."
In an interview he explained
that he will seek -assistance from
students and faculty in drawing
up the new disciplinary system
asked for by the Regents.
However, he has not determined
what structural role the student
and faculty advisors will assume.
Meanwhile student activists and
members of the faculty senate in-
dicated yesterday expressed op-
position to Cutler's stand.
In a resolution passed last night
VOICE voted to recognize "Stu-
