Halls Honor 'U' Benefactors

1910) report that "six of the most
desirable landladies in town ...
(agreed). . . to take girls only,
giving them the use of the parlor
and home privileges ..
In Memory
The Newberry Residence which
opened five years later was the
gift of Truman H. and John S.
Newberry in memory of their
mother, Helen Handy Newberry.
William , Wilson Cook, whose
monumental gift to his alma ma-
ter is the Cook Law Quadrangle,
also presented the University with
the Martha Cook Bldg., named
after his mother, in 1915.
Two years later, Regent Levi
Barbour, 1865L, donated $100,000
and several parcels of land for
providing a residence hall to be
named after his mother, Betsy
Barbour.
Donates Home
In September 1921, the fifth
women's residence of the Univer-
sity opened. Judge Noah Wood
Cheever, '63, '65L, donated his
home to the University and it was
named after his wife, Adelia, with
'whom he had lived in the house
from 1879 to 1905.
The construction of Mosher-
Jordan Hall, the first large wom-
en's dormitory at the University,
was not completed until 1931 be-
cause protests of local realtors
delayed the start of the building.
The landladies of Ann Arbor
feared that the structure (design-
ed to house 440) would leave their
rooming houses empty and en-
danger their means of livelihood.
Within four years, however, the
dormitories were again overcrowd-
ed and another residence was re-
quired. The Regents, therefore,
approved the construction of
Stockwell Hall. This dormitory
was built with the help of a grant
by the Federal Administration of
Public Works and opened in 1940.
First Woman
Madelon Louisa Stockwell, '72,
was the first woman ever admit-
ted to the University. She came
to Ann Arbor to pursue advanced
work in Greek after studies at Al-
bion College. Elizabeth Farrand
("History of the University of
Michigan") says of her, "It was
gratifying that the first woman
who entered the institution as a
student was fitted in every way
to satisfy the expectations of the
friends of the new movement, and
allay the fears of such as had
looked upon it with alarm."
Henderson House, a co-op unit,
opened for women students in
1945. It is named after Mary Bur-
ton Henderson, who directed the
campaign committee that made
possible the erection of the Wom-
en's League.
As the post war flood of students
filled and spilled over the women's
dormitories, the University decid-
ed to build another large hall,
this one to be named after Alice
Crocker Lloyd. Miss Lloyd. '16,
was Dean of Women from 1920 to
her death in 1950, the year the new
dormitory was completed
Tremendous Woman
"She was a tremendous wom-
an," Thelma Zwerdling, '32, said.
"During her years of service, the
dormitories were united under one
central management."
Couzens Hall became an inte-
gral part of the residence hall sys-
tem in 1954 when it was removed
from the management of the hos-
pital. The women who live there,
reside in a gift to the University
from the Honorable James Couz-
ens, United States Senator who 2
donated $600,000 in 1923 for "the
construction of a building for the
housing of students . . . and grad-
uate nurses."
The largest of the women's res-
idence halls was the last one to
be erected. Mary Butler Markley,
'92, is the namesake of the 1958
structure that dominates Wash-
ington Heights. She was a mem-
ber of Phi Beta Kappa society on
the campus and helped found
the Michigan League.

Two Groups
Offer Land
For College
Four hundred acres of land
north of Grand Haven have been
offered as a site for a proposed
four-year, state-supported Western
Michigan College.
Grand Haven Chamber of Com-
merce secretary, Claude Verduin,
said the site would be donated by
arrangement between the Spring
Lake township board and a real
estate organization, with "no
strings attached."
A campus location and $1 mil-
lion in private funds are required
by the state legislature before the
proposed school's charter can take
effect.
The site lies adjacent to a pro-
posed residential district and is
also near land that may be used
as a state park, between Grand
Haven and Muskegon.
COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
KBac 'Legal'

Participation
MINNEAPOLIS-The Minnesota
Student Association at the Uni-
versity of Minnesota this month
endorsed "legal demonstrations for
civil rights," and urged students
"who are concerned" to partici-
pate in them.

EVANSTON - Adherence to
regulations restricting freshmen
participation in extra-curricular
activities during their first quarter
at Northwestern University has
been predicted by Dean of Stu-
dents James C. McLeod and Dean
of Men Joseph D. Boyd at North-
western.
Theregulations proposed last
January by the Committee on
Undergraduate Life states: "Stu-
dent groups may not require
freshmen to engage in prepara--;
tions for, or to participate in,
Homecoming or other extracurri-
cular activities, in the first quar-
ter."
Living units have reacted "re-
markably well to the rules" Mc-
Leod said. He added, though, that
individual houses are able to break
rules without being caught,

MADISON - Members of the
Athletic Board of the University
of Wisconsin are being polled to
determine whether to call a special
meeting to discuss the discontinua-
tion of air travel for the Wiscon-
sin athletic teams.
The action is a result of the
Toledo air crash which occured
at the end of October and took
the lives of 16 members of the
California Polytechnic college
football team.
Cites Increase
In Enrolhnent
Enrollment in graduate studies
in Michigan colleges and univer-
sities has increased 10.6 per cent
during the past year, Edward G.
Groesbeck, University Director of
Registration and Records, says.
There are 18,971 candidates for
master's and doctor's degrees in
the state's public, private and de-
nominational schools. There are
also 5,019 students in graduate-
professional studies, such as medi-
cine and law; there was a slight
decline in enrollment In the
graduate-professional schools.

The total enrollment of under-
graduates and graduates and pro-
fessional students in the state
increased 6.9 per cent since last
fall. The University has one-thrd
of the state's graduate students
and 58 per cent of all students
in graduate-professional schools.

INTIERNATIONAL LIVING:
Young Yugoslavs Like To Argue Politics

By PATRICIA GOLDEN

"Yugoslav young people think'
we have about the same amount
of freedom as they do," Brian
Glick, '62, reports,
Glick spent the summer in
Yugoslavia as a participant in the
Experiment in International Liv-
ing. He said his Yugoslav friends
could always stop a discussion of
American freedom by asking, "If
the majority of people in the
United States should decide to
establish complete socialism there,
with all property government-
owned, would there be a fascist
revolution before certain elements
in the country would let this
happen?"
"I couldn't say for sure," Glick
said. "It really worried me after
I started thinking about all the
possibilities."
Domestic Policy
There is not just one kind of
communism in Yugoslavia, he said.
Especially in domestic oplicy, there
is a wide range of opinion. Glick
obsereved that people are free to
argue differences within the
general lines of socialism.
Glick's Yugoslav friends pointed
out that both major parties in the
United States support the same
political system, and suggested
'U' Students
'Sell Gizmos'
In Competitiont
Five seniors in the business ad-
ministration school began com-
peting yesterday in Chicago with
representatives of eight other uni-
versities in a mock marketing
battle to sell "gold-plated gizmos."
During the competition, which.
will conclude today, the team willa
make the equivalent of six and a
half years of decisions on manu-
facturing, sales, research and other
factors involved in selling the
mythical product. An IBM com-
puter grades the teams, and pro-
vides them with the reports on
which they must base their stra-
tegy.
Prof. William M. Hoad, of the
business administration school,
is the University faculty represen-
tative. The students on the team
are James Hannah, Martin Kos-
ten, David Schupp, Philip Smith
and Roger Upson.

that we, too, have restrictions on
people who argue outside the
bounds of that system.
'They all felt that the various
socialistic parties here were only
permitted to exist because they
. are powerless. They would
probably be squelched if they be-
came important."
Glick was impressed by the
freedom of movement within Yu-
goslavia. Yugoslavians are free to
travel throughout their country,
and appear to do so even more
than do Americans.
"There is a peculiar freedom
of religion in Yugoslavia. The
churches are filled, and the
government even spends money to
rebuild damaged ones. But in the
schools materialism Is taught
pretty much as fact."
Glick noted that from about the
age of five Yugoslav children are
affiliated with various Communist-
organized youth groups. There
they receive a thorough indoctri-
nation in materialism, and are
encouraged to scoff at religion.
Church-goers are mainly older
people.
National Press
International editions of Ameri-
can, French and British news-
papers are available on newsstands
in Yugoslavia. The nation's own
press, hovever, is government-
owned. Potentially it can distort
the news as much as it wishes,
if the circulation of foreign papers
is cut off.
I only know this from what
others translated for me but it
appeared that their newspapers
did a very fair job of reporting
international news," Glick said.
Yugoslav journals took a dif-
ferent stand than the Russians
on the Congo situation, he said. At
first they were definitely anti-
Belgian. They felt that Lumumba
was right. When he began arguing
with Hammarskjold and battling
the United Nations, they seemed
to be turning away from him.

"They seem to have freedom of
conversation without freedom of
speech," Glick observed. People
may speak against the government
to their friends, but not in public
speeches or in a "Hyde Park"
situation.
"There are people in good posi-
tions, making good salaries, who
are religious and anti-regime. As
long as they don't do anything
against the government no one
bothers them. If they were to

organize I think the government
would step in quickly," he said.
"My Yugoslav friends felt that
we have a bourgeois democracy-
that the working man does not
have much chance of getting into
public office."
They agreed however, that the
son, of a worker has an excellent
chance for upward mobility, and
that ,he may aspire to nearly any
occupation. A 25-year-old factory
worker, they felt, had little chance
of getting on his city council or
running for the legislature.
