'Joan of Arc'
Delicate, Silent Poetry
THE Cinema Guild this weekend is showing Carl Dreyer's silent film,
"The Passion of Joan of Arc." It is a great film. It is a poet's film.
It is also a difficult film.
As a work of art it makes special demands on its audience, but
it is also a silent film and the technical medium upon which the work
is printed is over thirty years old and in terrible shape. When I say
that the film is great I cannot, therefore, recommend that you see the
film unless you prepare yourself to ignore these shortcomings, unless
you can hold yourself from giggling at the sight of movement without
sound. There. is another superficial fault to the print of this film and
it is as well to mention it now, for it is far more deadly than.the
other. Some well-meaning British group decided, during the period in
which the movie world was still reeling from the innovation of sound,
that Dreyer's movie would somehow gain from this scientific advance.

Symposium on 'U' Needs
Might Curb Fragmentation

I

3RESIDENT HATCHER'S speech before the
faculty this week was symbolic of the pe-
iliar curse of a great University which chooses
expand.
"The University faces a need of getting and
eeping a feeling of unity ... we have to avoid
parating schools, colleges, and departments
nd strive to create one ongoing strength -. -
e carry an enormous responsibility to unite
1 individual capacities and dedications,"
resident Hatcher insisted. He showed concern
ith the whole problem of kinetic focus-pur-
oseful motion towards a specific goal. But
so like others, he was unable to satisfactorily
efine this University's goals, nor the directed
ctivities from which such goals might emerge.
In a sense, the President was understandably
ymied. Within a decentralized University in-
olving the various efforts of nearly 30,000
eople, each with their own particular com-
.itments, it becomes difficult to infuse any
nse of oneness or community. The "communi-
of scholars" is in fact more a myth than an
perative reality, and as the University con-
nues to enlarge its dimensions, the term
ommunity" totally loses its implications of
)nsonance, mutuality of educational stand-
ds, and stimulating interrelationships.

agreement to continue controlled, exploratory
growth. Purpose has been sought without sig-
nificant result; its demise might be seen as a
corollary for the increase in size. Thus when
implementation has occurred it has regularly
been the implementation of inidividual or
departmental purpose, rather than of more
broadly-accepted purpose.
HENCE, with an unnatural but expected wil-
lingness the University has rejected tradi-
tional meanings not only of "university" but of
"community." And in a sense, it is plausible to
believe that the de-emphasis of community{
"togetherness" has been offset by the benefits
derived from vast resources and decentralized
operations.
But one might also legitimately ask if the
benefits of decentralization have totally bal-
anded the resultant University immobility.
Has the University been hampered by its par-
tian loss of continuity? This is the question to
which President Hatcher and dozens of others
have addressed themselves with never quite
enough result. As an example of the problems
raised by decentralization and consequent
losses in communication, the Presider was
hard-pressed to find more than statistical cri-
teria for evaluating the "state of the Univer-

They added a narrative and lots
of music. The narrative is inept
and the music is Wagner.
The overall effect of this appli-
cation is to spoil the movie.
Thankfully in last night's show-
ing something went wrong in the
projector and for half the length
of the film Dreyer was spared.
AGAIN, THIS IS A POET'S mo-
vie, a movie of mood formed by
aesthetic movement and tableaux.
Dreyer's use of the human face
as a stage setting is unmatched.
It is better than Eisenstien's be-
cause his intentions are more pro-
found, his eye more delicate.
Faces seem to come from the
past like lines of poetry into the
memory. Shadow, not light, gleams
from their eyes. The veins in
their foreheads hold your atten-
tion like a subtle turn in the plot.

THE STUDENT VOTER:
Residence Requirements for Registering

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
is an interpretation of Michigan
state law regarding the determina-
tion of a voter's permanent resi-
dence-where he will cast his bal-
lot in the Nov. 8 election. The
report was submitted by Ann Ar-
bor City Attorney .Jacob Fahrner
to Student Government Council at.
its first tall meeting. It is intend-
ed to clarify thte issues surround-
ing the question of a student's
legal residence while he is in col-
lege.)
O NMay 12, 1960, Fred J. Look-
er, the City Voting Clerk, pre-
sented to the City Council a re-
port on the subject of student
registration. This report refers to
the Constitutional provision, which
is at the root of this subject, to
the effect that no elector shall
be deemed to have gained or lost
a residence while a student at any
institution of learning.
Looker's statement refers to
Michigan Supreme Court decisions
on this subject. They are People
vs. Osburn, 170 Michigan 143, and
Attorney General vs. Miller. 266
Michigan 127, especially 142 to
144. Looker also referred to an
opinion of a former Attorney Gen-
eral of Michigan, the Honorable
Foss O. Eldred, which was dated
October 12, 1946.
In a later opinion of the Attor-
ney General of the State of Mich-
igan, Number 2807, the Honorable
Thomas M. Kavanagh, referred to
the two cases cited above. Anoth-
er opinion of the Attorney Gen-
eral which bears on this subject
is dated June 28, 1955, Number
2178, also written by the Honor-.
able Thomas M. Kavanagh. Both
the cases and the opinions refer
to 18 American Jurisprudence
Elections, Section 62.

THE, CITY CLERK, as registra-
tion officer, is given statutory
authority to interrogate prospec-
tive registrants and must in the
first instance determine eligibil-
ity for registration. It is impos-
sible to lay down general rules that
apply to every case.
However, where a student lives
in a dormitory, rooming or fra-
ternity house only during the per-
iod of the school year and re-
turns to his parents' home out-
side Ann Arbor during vacation
time, he does not acquire a resi-
dence,
In other cases the City Clerk
looks for facts other than at-
tendance at the University which
would indicate Ann Arbor as the
legal residence of the student. I
have advised -him that one does
not change his former residence to
Ann Arbor when his presence in
Ann Arbor is due to the sole pur-
pose of receiving the educational
benefits conferred here. In such
case the former legal residence is
retained.
* * *.
THIS POSITION is based on
People vs. Osburn, cited above,
which also stated that the law will
not permit students of institutions
of learning by any declaration of
intention to become electors in
communities in which such insti-
tutions are situated. This opinion
continued that if one having no
domicile in good faith makes a
domicile in a college town and en-
ters college as a resident citizen,
he is entitled to vote there.

"Whether he did so is a question
of fact."
* * *
IN ATTORNEY GENERAL vs.
Miller the Michigan Supreme
Court said that:
"The constitutional provision is
plain and unambiguous so far as
students are concerned. No elec-
tor shall be deemed to have gkin-
ed or lost a residence 'while a
student at any institution of
learning.'
"The great weight of authority
Is that, 'a student at college who
is free from parental control, re-
gards the place where the college
is situated as his home, has no
other to which to return in case of
sickness or domestic affliction, is
as much entitled to vote as any'
other resident of the place where
the college is situated.' 20 C. J. p.
72."
IN 18 AM, JUR. ELECTIONS,
Section 62, mentioned earlier, the
text reads as follows:
"Some state Constitutions pro-
vide that residence shall not be
deemed to have been lost or gain-
ed while in attendance at any in-
stitution of learning. Under such
a. provision, a student does not
acquire a residence for voting pur-
poses merely by attending an in-
stitution of learning, but the pro-
vision will not prevent a person
who goes to a place for the pur-
pose of making it his place of per-
manent abode, independent of his
sojurn as a student, from gain-
ing a residence there as an elec-
tor, as where a student's family
removes to the place where the

institution is situated and he con-
tinues to live with such family."
* * *
SOME OF THE FACTORS
which the Clerk considers in de-
termining eligibility for registra-
tion are as follows:
A. Whether the student is mar-
ried and has establilshed his own
home with his wife in Ann Arbor
and remains in that home during
the time that school is not in
session.
In such cases and particularly
where this situation has existed
for more than a year, the Clerk
has registered the student. In
general the wife of a student has
a residence at the same place as
that of her husband.
B. The length of stay in Ann
Arbor.
C. Whether the student is free
from parental control.
D. Where he would go in case
of sickness or accident.
E: If employed, the amount of
time devoted to gainful employ-
ment in relation to academic pur-
suits.
F. The intended place of resi-
dence after graduation.
* * *
AS NOTED IN THE first opinion
of the Attorney General cited
herein, he concluded that it is
impossible to lay down any gen-
eral rule applicable to each of
the students concerning whom the
inquiry there involved related. I
concur as to this impossibility.
However, the foregoing does
represent the position of the City
Clerk and this office on the ques-
tion.

AT THE MICHIGAN:
'Dark'
Difflused
OCCASIONAILY the current
film adaptation of the success-
ful William Inge play "Dark at
the Top of the Stairs" makes for
a very moving and tender drama.
Occasionally the delicate simpli-
city of structure and perceptivity
of the Inge writing is retained
and the essential basic truth of
the piece is able to creep softly
but effectively to the fore,
Surely there is a good deal of
beauty present in the scene when
the loving mother, clinging pos-
sessively to her ten year old son,
realizes that this is the moment
when she must sever the apron
strings and set her fledgling free.
And surely there is a great deal
of tenderness inherent at the mo-
ment the young daughter - a
gawky and rather plain looking
teenager--begins to feel the full
emotions of womanhood and the
responsibilities of being forced to
speak out for that which she be.-
lieves.
* * *
BUT THE DELBERT MANN
production is film only of ef-
fective moments and unfortunate-
ly not one of an adequately sus-
taining emotional experience. The
scenario which Harriet Frank and
Irving Ravitch have fashioned
from the Inge play finds itself
with parts eventually far great-
er than the whole
Part of the disappointment of
the screen treatment quite ob-
flously lies with the necessity of
injecting sensationalism into the
family drama
The film is burdened with a
good deal of unnecessary inti-
macies of the marriage bed graph-
ically photographed, and some
good hearty misplaced allusions to
sex. These sequences instead of
heightening the strength of the
piece are instead devastatingly
distracting.
* *' *
THE PERFORMANCES of the
principles are beautifully drawn
by Robert Preston and Dorothy
McGuire as the domestically trou-
bled husband and wife and An-
gela Lansbury and Shirly Knight
as the husband's friend and cou-
ple's'daughter But despite-the ex-
ceptional competency of the
cast, the pacing is dreary and
limpid, lacking the essential fluid-
ity of the motion picture medium.
The Warners package is nos-
talgically endowed with a group
of charming period sets by George
James Hopkins and all dressed
up in lovely technicolor. "The
Dark at the Top of the Stairs"
is well intended film making if
not particularly distinguished en-
tertainment.

THE SECOND Constitutional
provision involved here is that
the right to vote is granted to
those who shall be above the age
of twenty-one years and have re-
sided in the state six months and
in the city in which they offer
to vote thirty days next preceding
such election.
The Supreme Court of Michi-
gan has defined "residence" in
several cases. In Reaume & Sil-
loway vs. Tetzlaff, 315 Michigan
99, the Court said:
"Residence means the place
where one resides; an abode, a
dwelling or habitation; especially,
a settled or permanent home or
domicile. Residence is made up of
fact and intention. There must be
the fact of abode, and the inten-
tion of remaining."

JNITED NATIONS - The United States is
hurting a bit from its brush with the neu-
'alists, but the Communists are premature in
ibilantly claiming a victory.
This jubilation could boomerang, and help
irn an apparent American setback into an-
her Communist defeat.

The Communists are in a poor posit

States and made it plain to all in thea

To The Editor:
DEAN Heynes' more than tacit
approval of a campus entre-
preneurial brain-storm-profes-
sional note-taking - comes as
somewhat of a surprise. While
the idea is perhaps unique, and
undeniably ambitious, its place in
the University seems questionable.
One of the major tasks of any
educational institution, even a
large university, is to provide
cogent intellectual stimulation to
the student. Too, the school should
encourage self-reliance and help
the student maintain a certain
level of involvement in academic
activity, The challenge to accept
the ways in which the University

This looks like a major Communist mis-
take.
THE Soviet bloc may impress the original
five neutralist nations, who sponsored the
proposal for a meeting of President Eisenhow-
er and Premier Khrushchev, with claims of
an American defeat. But they are doing some-
thing else.
The Asian and African nations who voted
along with the neutralists are passionately
jealous of their position of independence be-
tween the two great power blocs, Communist
and Western. ,
By jumping for joy and crying victory, the
Communists turned a spotlight on themselves
and probably aroused misgivings among the

attempts to carry out the above is
met vigorously by some students.
and with a good deal of difficulty
by others.
* * *
DIFFICULTY ARISES IN rec-
onciling the use of prepared class
notes with these tasks. For some,
whetherrlecture attendance be-
comes required or not, the use
of these notes just might bring
about the situation where the stu-
dents convert ten dollars worth of
beer, coffee or eye-shadow funds
into a mimeographed note fee
fund, purchasing the service,
showing up for labs and exams,
and picking up a mimeographed
grade at the end of the semester.
While admittedly there are a
few students who can forego lec-
ture attendance, claiming they can
gain more knowledge by reading
outside of class, most students
probably need the stimulation that
a good lecturer will or ought to
provide. The lecturer should pro-
vide the bulk of the students'
stimulation for deriving maximum
benefit from the course.
Total involvement cannot pos-
sibly take place without an active
participation in the lecture, by
note-taking and subsequent analy-
sis of these notes. Self-reliance is
automatically encouraged by lec-
ture attendance and getting the
rnnrf . ,no of the avn,.ip-nno

IQC Studies Rush. .
To The Editor:
REALIZING that the IQC has
an obligation to work for the
best interests of the men on cam-
pus, the three Quadrangle Presi-
dents felt a change should be
made in the rushing procedure.
Thursday night the Inter-Quad-
rangle Council requested that the
Inter-Fraternity Council consider
deferred rush for first semester
freshmen.
First semester freshmen, in the
few short weeks before rush, have
little opportunity to become ac-
quainted with the fraternity sys-
tem. Depending on upper class-
men in residence halls for in-
formation, many do not get a
clear picture of individual frater-
nities. In addition to this problem,
freshmen have not yet become
adjusted to University academic
life.
* * *
DEFERRED RUSH for first se-'
mester freshmen combined with
a Joint IQC-IFC information pro-
gram would help to eliminate
these problems. A one-semester
joint program undertaken to ac-
quaint the freshmen with every
aspect of the fraternity system
would make formal rush a more

part of their continuing orienta-
tion to the University.
RUSH IS THE manner by which
men decide whether or not to
join a fraternity. Without ade-
quate information on fraternities
this decision is made much more
difficult.
It is our belief that we have
offered a partial solution to this
problem, and we are confident
that through a spirit of mutual
concern' and cooperation, a com-
plete solution satisfactory to both
organizations will be reached by
the joint study committee.
