Smith Says Law School
Must Maintain Prestige


Appointments To Colleges Approved




The necessity for the University
law school to maintain its na-
tional and international prestige,
and to broaden its scope of legal
attention, was stressed by Dean
Allan F. Smith in a speech to the
Development Council conference
Speaking at a luncheon for the
seventh annual meeting of the
Council, Prof. Smith, who was re-
cently appointed head of the law
school, praised the school as a
"great and going institution" add-
ing, however, that "we believe
strongly there is no end to prog-
Views Research Progress
He listed as one of the areas in
which he hoped progress would be
made, the school's research pro-
gram-"one of which we can be
proud"-stressing increased atten-
tion to the modern implications
of international law.
Prof. Smith expressed alarm at
the support given in the state
legislature to a recent bill which
would have limited out-state en-
rollment in Michigan universities,
emphasizing that many such stu--
dents in the past have contribut-
ed significantly to the financial
well being and international pres-
tige _which the University's law
school enjoys,
"Only a willing, informed group
of citizens can help meet the need
of opposing attempts to force the
University to withdraw to provin-
cial status," he warned.
Obligation To Scholars
He added that it must be made
clear that the school's- obligation
to its scholars can only be met
by maintenance of this kind of
Prof. Smith also said strength-
ened and increased relations with
state and national bar associa-

enic election procedures will be

this week and voted upon by the
delegates Thursday at their reg-
ular meeting.
The new plan gives the vote to
five representatives from each
house: The president of the house;

whom are on the board of dele-
gates); and one representative
from the sophomore, junior and
senior class in the house.
discussed in all sorority houses
ed this system at last week's
meeting, they are permitting their
houses to vote on whether the five
representatives should vote as a
group or as individuals.
Under the present system, after
the executive council has selected
two qualified persons for each
post from those who have peti-
tioned, the candidates speak be-
fore the board of delegates. Then
the delegates discuss their im-
pressions of the nominees in their
respective houses and take a
house vote. The delegates then
cast their house votes for the ac-
tual election.
"The general feeling was that
taking a house vote was repeti-
tious because the house usually
voted on the recommendations of
the delegate," said Panhellenic
President Barbara Greenberg, '61.

The Regents approved numer-
ous appointments to the various
schools and colleges of the Uni-
versity at their meeting yester-
Prof. F. Clever Bald, director
of the University's Michigan His-
torical Collections, was appointed
professor of history in the literary
Prof. Charles S. Chetham, who
has been curator of the Museum
of Art at Agunquit, Me., was ap-

tor of the Museum of Art for a

...emphasizes progress
tions would both benefit the
school and make the talents of
the students and faculty more
useful to them. The law school
has an obligation to serve as a
leader in the world and occasion-
ally as advisor to other law
schools, he said.
Self-Examination Needed
Prof. Smith promised the school
will continue its primary job, that
of producing lawyers who can play
a major role in society. "This re-
quires rigorous self-examination
and high standards,"he said.
"I do not subscribe to the
philosophy that the law school
cannot progress. Each year new
problems in the University and
the world require the attention
of legal educators and modifica-
tion of existing programs and
pilans. One of the primary ob-
jectives of all education is to look
far into the future, in order to
meet coming needs."
