ANN ARBOR (QP)-Want to help
pioneer what may become a new
art form? All you need is paper,
ink, a talent for mathematics
and computer equipment worth
about a quarter of a million dol-
Computers, which are rapidly
expanding their roles in the life
of each of us, have chalked up
another breakthrough. Works by
one of them are being featured in
an art show at a gallery here.
Under the spare-time direction
of three young men connected
with the University meteorology
and oceanography departments,
an analog computer turns out col-
or sketches of whales, clowns, dra-
gonflies-as well as abstract de-
signs which can't be readily de-
And are they good? Prof. Wil-
liam Lewis of the art department
thinks so. He helped get the three
a chance to exhibit their "com-
puter art" this month at Ann Ar-
bor's Forsythe Gallery.
Turning out the "art" involves
a fairly complex application of a
fairly simple mathematical prin-
ciple, say Biggs and his fellow
"artists," Fred V. Bock and Paul
R. Harrison.
IAs most high school students
know, the different solutions to a
differential equation can be rep-
resented as a series of points, or
a line, on a graph.
Now ask an analog computer to
draw you the solutions to one-or
two' or three-of these complicat-
ed problems. And give it some
colored ink with which to do it.

The result? As pattern--and often
an intriguing one.
Next, change the pattern around
to suit yourself, by altering the
equation's variables, changing the
equation a little, or just plain
"diddling around." The result?
Computer art.
"In a few cases, I set out de-
liberately to make something, but
this is quite an effort," Biggs, a
student, instructor and staff re-
searcher at the University, said.
Is it art?
"Our idea of art is that it's
something which communicates
and has aesthetic values," Harri-
son, a student, says. "Our work
communicates and it does have
aesthetic values. Therefore, it's

JAMES FARMER, head of the Congress of Racial Equality, spoke
at Michigan State University. He made several comments on the
need for a fair housing ordinance in East Lansing.
cities in the South, although there about Negro job opportunities say-

Collegiate Press Service
Ithica College, formerly of down-
town Itl{a, New York, has re-
cently moved to a new $25 million
campus south of that town. The
school expects to double its en-
rollment and its faculty has been
expanded by 71 per cent.
What is\interesting about this
is that Ithica College, although a
private institution, is largely sup-
ported by government funds. It
borrowed more than $10 million
from the Federal Housing and
Home Finance Agency,sand an-
other $10 million from bonds
guaranteed by New York State.
The school expects another two
or three million from these sources,
as reported in the Wall Street
New Campus
Ithica's new campus is a prime
example of the rising dependence
of private schools on public funds.
The Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare got over four
hundred million dollars from Con-
gress last fall for grants and loans
to colleges.
Of 135 applications from col-
leges so far from these funds, 67
have come from public institutions
and 68 from private colleges.
Indications seem to point to an
increase in private school depen-
dence on public money. The Pes-
ident implied this in his education
message to Congress; he put heavy
stress on increased aid to small
colleges, especially those which are

have financial problems despite
the mushrooming national demand
for higher education. The Presi-
dent of Ithica College says that
his college's expansion would not
have been possible without aid.
Federal and state aid is in no
doubt saving many small colleges
from a marginal existence.
But the trend to public ,support
of private institutions finds little
favor among educators and others
who value highly the existence in
the United States of a group of
private schools that can chart
their courses without regard for
public considerations.

Enrollment in private schools
has been steadily dropping; in
1950, nearly half of the nation's
college students were in private
schools; last year it was down to
37 per cent; in a decade it is ex-
pected to drop to 20 per cent.
Perhaps federal funds can help
to solve this problem: but even if
they can, the greatest worry in-
volved is that the flow of public
funds to private schools will result
in a greater measure of political
influence over curricula, and, at
worst, a means for political repri-
sal when students or faculty be-
come involved in issues that are
politically or socially controversial.
