Report Ferency
May Leave Post
Democratic tiairman Interested
In Runming for Governor Next Year
Special To The Daily
DETROIT-State Democratic Chairman Zolton A. Ferency is
"seriously considering" resigning his post before the end of the year
possibly in order to further his chances of becoming the Democratic
nominee for governor in '1966, a high party source revealed yesterday.
Ferency is anxious to get the publicity he would need to become
the nominee and does not think that his present post can provide it,
the source said.
In addition, he has become disenchanted with his job as chair-
man, which, because of several factors concerned with the new
Democratic-controlled legislature, has become less important than
The source explained that the new legislature feels it owes more
loyalty to the electorate-and its moods-than to the party and its
platform. As a result, the legis-
lators have been reluctant to pass
Democratic measures such as fis-
cal reform for "fear of becoming
known as the party that raised
taxes," the source said.
Seats in Jeopardy
Reasons for the loyalty only to
the electorate are that many
legislators-from ordinary Repub-
lican districts-consider seats in
jeopardy in the next election. In
addition, there is no Democratic
governor to wield the party whip.
Finally, many legislators are shy
about approaching large reform
issues with almost no experience
in Lansing.
A large function of the state

form promises are transformed in-
to law-has thus been frustrated. kae

Wagner as saying he might drop
from the race because "I find I

The aide said Wagner felt that
he must be a father and a mother

The 55-year-old mayor also said
he was taking into consideration
what affect another four years in

ELI Students To Visit Rural. Michigan


For most students at the Um-
versity's English Language Insti-
tute, their American experience
has been little more than life in
a dormitory and a few foreign
friends. But several hundred for-
eign students who are spending
this Memorial Day weekend in the
"thumb" area with Michigan fam-
ilies, will be members of an Amer-
ican family.

Sometimes cbildren are unsure of themselves. They need a
little extra help and encouragement to discover and use their
own abilities.
This year, 140 Ann Arbor children have received individual
tutoring and cultural guidance through the University Tutorial
and Cultural Relations Project.
Most of the are Negro children from the Jones school area.
Approximately 60 per cent are in the primary grades, the rest
being in junior high and high school.
The project, organized three years ago through the efforts
of Richard Sleet, a member of the community who now serves
as director, employes University undergraduate and graduate
students as well as some faculty members and their wives. All
serve on a voluntary basis, and each is responsible for tutoring
at least one child in the academic areas where it is most needed.

President Rudolph Kalafus, Grad, stated that the small age
difference between the tutor and his pupil is an important factor
in communication. He added that tutoring outside of the class-
room encourages the children to achieve success. Many of them
seem to work better without competition.
With the parents' consent, tutors are encouraged to talk to
the pupils' school teachers. From this the tutor can learn about
the child's academic background as well as his classroom adjust-
ment and level of achievement.
It is often very helpful to get to know the parents, and from
them learn more about the child. This often serves to allay any
apprehensions the parents may feel about a nonprofessional
program. One outgrowth of this has been that the tutor and the
family have been able to work together with the child. Often,
parently provide regular quiet periods for study, and encourage
their children to obtain library cards.
