Final Specifications on Changeover
To Be Returned for Final Approval
The program and functions of the Willow Run Laboratories
have been transferred "in principle" to the Institute of Science and
Technology by action of the Regents.
Prof. Joseph A. Boyd, director of the Willow Run Laboratories,
was named as director of the expanded Institute. He succeeds Prof.
Robert White who resigned to assume a position in industry.

To maintain excellence, Nelson

Using figures from a survey
taken for the State Council of
College Presidents, he said that
five per cent of the state's popu-
lation actively supported institu-
tions of higher learning.
This group is the most im-
portant as far as higher education'
is concerned, Nelson said, because
they are aware of the non-teach-
ing functions of the University.
The mass appeal for support
seems to have failed. We must
appeal to the interested five per
cent. "A university "of this kind
must depend on the active, in-
telligent support of this five per
cent. They must keep the Uni-
versity great."
Set Apart
According to Nelson two things
met the University apart from
other institutions. The first is
the rate of enrollment in the
graduate school. About forty per
cent of the campus is enrolled
in graduate school.
The second is the high level of
research at the University. "None
surpass the overall record of this
university," Nelson said. Research
is an integral part of the Univer-
sity. "Take it away and you take
away the excellence."
Debates Called
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower yester-
day gave his official blessing to
the biggest adult education pro-
ject ever tackled in this country--
the Nixon-Kennedy debates which
get under way Monday night.
The Adult Education Associa-
tion of the Uniited States is help-
ing local units organize listeningj
and viewing groups throughout1
the nation. Association officials
hope that between three and four
million adult Americans will meet
in schools, churches and homes to
hear and watch the debates and
follow them with their own dis-
cussions and arguments.
In a telegram to Herbert C.
Hunsaker of Chicago, president
of the AEAUS, Eisenhower said,
"It is good to learn of the efforts
being made by the adult education
association to encourage our
citizens to study the forthcoming
debates between our national can-

CAPTAIN AND COACH - Michigan Head Coach Bump Elliott and Captain Gerry Smith, first
team center-linebacker, discuss problems on the eve of today's game with highly regarded Oregon.
Elliott, in his second year as coach, and Smith, in his last as a player, hope that this will
be Michigan's year to rise to football fame again. Today's contest will begin to shed light on
this question.

Michigan will begin phase two of its football Renaissan

A crowdof approximately 50,000 is expected to be c

Institute, which was established
in response to the Soviet launch-
ing of Sputnik I, but is an "expan-
sion in the scope of the Institute."
Research Total
The University carries out a
yearly total of $20 million worth of
research, most of it in government
contracts. Approximately half of
it is done in the "Willow Run La-
Research activities in the la-
boratories include "Project Michi-
gan" which produced the high-
resolution, side-looking radar an-
nounced last spring.
The work of the Institute, since
its recent establishment, has in-
cluded the support of research
projects, presentation of lectures,
seminars and consultations; co-
operation with off-campus agen-
cies in research programs; and
the institution of appointments of
scientists and engineers.
Prof. Boyd has been a faculty
member since 1949. In July 1958,
he was appointed to the position
of director of the newly created
Willow Run Laboratories.

Pauper's Means Test
The new law will provide home
nursing care for the 60,000 resi-
dents now collecting old age as-
sistance plus physical examina-
tions for persons applying for as-
sistance at age 65. Standard Blue
Cross-Blue Shield type coverage
for another 60,000 persons not re-
ceiving old age assistance but who
are unable to pay major medical
costs is also a feature of the pro-
Prof. Cohen viewed the bill as
"a pauper's means test" approach
to medical care for the aged.
"The tendency of the bill," he
predicted, "would be to hospitalize
more older people who might have
been taken care of at home if the
original bill had passed."

"Scrapple from the Apple" by
Charlie Parker (based on "I Got
Rhythm) was the overture to the
Student Government Reading and
Discussion program as the first
seminar group met yesterday to
discuss American jazz.
"Jazz is a lively art and its lan-
guage is continuously changing.

to become an addict of one form
or another," Prof. H. W. Hitchcock
Alter Schedule
For Picketim
The Ann Arbor Direct Action
Committee held its second meet-
ing of the new year last night.
The members decided to revise
the picketing schedule of local
chain stores on Saturdays when
there are home football games.
The picketing will start at 10
a.m. and continue until 1 p.m. in
order to reach the out-of-town
football audience.
Gordon Carey, National Field
Director of the Congress of Ra-
cial Equality spoke at the meeting

in movement.

of the music school, leader of the
discussion said.
Phenomenal Changes
The most impressive thing to
Prof. Hitchcock is the phenomenal
changes which have taken place in
jazz, so that each style should be
appreciated for itself. "Whether
the style be as tight and tense as
that of the Chicago school or the
tame swing of Goodman, the re-
vival of New Orleans jazz or the
self-consciously progressive style
of Stan Kenton, they must be ap-
proached on their own level,"
Hitchcock said.
The group compared the styles
of Charlie Parker and Johnny
Hodges, noting that Parker gave
a warmth of tone to the alto sax
while Hodges had a smoother
sound which might even have fit
in with Guy Lombardo's tech-
Contrast Noted
Another contrast was noted in
the treatment of rhythm by the
two musicians. Hodges tends to
push the beat, while Parker usu-
ally lags slightly behnid it.
Another major difference noted
was in phrase structure. In the
1930's it was customary to use a
square cut structure. This gave
way to a smooth or flowing non-
symmetrical phrasology such as
Parker uses. Parker also deviates

further from the choral patterns
as shown in his version of "Em-
braceable You" than does a more
conventional jazz artist such as
Benny Goodman.
Since jazz is made up of techni-
cal musical arrangement and im-
provistion, the consideration for
pure technique was opposed to
spontaneity of the works was
It was pointed out that new
arrangements of old numbers can
be just as sincerely felt as original
compositions, and that tightly or-
ganized numbers can still consti-
tute "jazz."
Performers Judged
In answer to the query, "How
do you judge a jazz performer?"
Hitchcock said "One measure of
a really great jazz musician is how
long he can sustain the listeners."
He creates a thread in his style
and tries to get you to believe in
it. If he succeeds he has fulfilled
his purpose.
One of the participants in the
discussion pointed out that cre-
ativity and inventiveness must be
added to proficiency in jazz. There
is also the element of personal
taste and reception of the artist's

nar on "American Jazz"' is ten-

ites over the Ducks, whose 8-2 rec-
ord last season placed them 11th
in the final Associated Press poll.
Michigan finished the season with
a 4-5 mark.
Brought Team Up
Elliott, who took over the coach-
ing reins last year from Bennie
Oosterbaan, brought the team
from the depths (after six straight
losses) back to respectability by
winning four of its last seven out-
ing last year.
'Now, with basically the same
squad, 34 lettermen, and some
sophomore help, Elliott will be
trying to return Michigan to the
'forefront of Big Ten football.
The first step in this task will
be complicated by the presence
today of a strong Oregon squad
coached by Len Casanova. The
Ducks are somewhatinexperienc-
ed in the line, but have a vet-
eran 'track team' backfield which
includes Dave Grosz, the nation's
number eight man in total of-
fense last year, at quarterback;.
Cleveland Jones, a 5'31/2", 148-
pound scatback, described as a
twin to Buddy Young; and Dave
Grayson, a :09.8 in the 100-yard
Slight Change
The Michigan attack will be
only slightly altered from last
year when Elliott introduced the
three platoon system to Big Ten
football and the winged-T offense
to Michigan.
Despite the moderate revision,
which includes a new role for the
Raiders, last year's defensive
specialists, Michigan will still de-
pend on the multiple unit system

veloped by Forest Evashevski at
