'U' To Give Plans to Regents


The University's expansion pro-
gram is progressing with the com-
pletion of plans for a Thompson
St. Parking lot to be presented at
the Dec. 16f=Regents meeting, Uni-
versity Vice-President Wilbur Pier-
Pont said yesterday.
The vice-president for construc-
tion and finance said that plans
and drawings of the lot are being
prepared now that the University
has purchased several lots on the
street between East William and
Madison Streets. It will be used
by staff and by those attending
conferences at the Michigan
The building of this structure
will probably entail widening of

but plans for this will be discuss-
ed with city officials before any

The Institute for Social Research
building is in the planning stage,
he reported. No definite size or
cost will be known until spring,
but the fund drive for the project
will be underway in a few weeks
and architects are drawing up pro-
spective designs.
Pierpont denied reports that the
University is anticipating re-
modeling or destruction of the
Kelsey archaeological museum. He
also said he had no knowledge of
plans to close off parts of Maynard

or State Streets to more fully
integrate buildings on the west
side of State St. into the general
campus area.
The University is investigating
and consulting with city officials
on the development of an east
section of the North Campus area.
Surveys of roads and utilities are
now underway. Meanwhile, Pier-

Pont said, Zeta Beta Tau frater-
nity is still planning to build on
North Campus, having purchased
the land and architect designs. The
University earlier this year urged
a 11 fraternities contemplating
building new houses to consider
the North Campus area. Only ZBT

UppermA ir Experiment
pBy ' U'Called Successful
The high altitude research balloon experiment conducted by a
team of University engineers and technicians last Wednesday in
conjunction with the launching of the Tiros II weather satellite
was "80 to 90 per cent successful."
This is the assessment by Frederick L. Bartman, research en-
gineer who supervised the beginning of an exhaustive six to nine-
month analysis of the balloon's instrument package yesterday.
"The readings looked fine, although some of the instruments
could have worked better," Bartman said. He added that the ap-
paratus' antenna and power sup-'
ply had failed to work for one-
half hours of the 11-hour flight.

Gov. G. Mennen Williams said
Williams said a date has not
yet been set for the session.
He said he and Gov.-elect John
B. Swainson want to check sig-
nals first with legislative leaders
of both parties before issuance of
the formal call.
"We want to make sure that a
bill agreeable to all will be ready
to implement the increase," Wil-
liams said. "We also want to be
sure this will not be a debating

"My own time is running out,"
added the Democratic governor
who goes out of office at the end
of the year.
Swainson said he did not favor
the sales tax increase during the
campaign but would accept the
decision of the voters.
'Both Williams and Swainson
agreed the session should be re-
stricted only to considering the
sales tax increase. Republican

BOSTON ()-One of the na-
tion's top scientists blasted what
he called "mismanagement andd

Dr. Edwin H. Land, president of,
a large camera company, said a
"vacuum exists in the most ob-

Dr. Land spoke to an audience
of 450 of the nation's top military
and civilian scientists attending,
the Air Force's 7th annual science1
and engineering symposium here.i
The speaker, for six years a
member of the President's scien-s
tific advisory committee, said "we'
need in Washington an organiza-1
tion that can change its field when9
necessary, not simply take random
bright ideas and developing them.
And I think we are going to get
that in Washington now."
After lauding the nation's civil-
ian and military scientists for
catching up and passing the Rus-
sian space program, he said that
we still have a big arsenal of "un-
finished" programs. He listed the
Atlas, Polaris, Minuteman, sub-
marine defense and reconnaisance
systems as in reality "unfinished
programs although we are told
some of them are operational."
He said the United States must,
have people in the administration
and in the military who know
where the nation is headed, what1
is going on and who can work out
a close liaison between them-
selves and the men actually at
work on the projects.

Cabinet Post
Not Expected
For Williams
At the risk of disappointing
Michigan Democrats, President-
elect John F. Kennedy is no longer
considering Governor G. Mennen
Williams for a cabinet post in the
new administration, a Detroit
newspaper said yesterday.
Williams, who has long spoken
of his interest in foreign relations,
will probably be offered the job

affairs, a Detroit News report,

Secretary of Health, Education
and Welfare,
AFL-CIO leaders had hoped that
Williams might become Kennedy's
secretary of labor.
Kennedy strategists reportly
think Williams would be a liability
rather than an asset if he were
given a cabinet post. They con-
sider his national reputation dim-

bles and his close association with

At an informal press conference
yesterday, the president - elect
boosted speculation that, Chester
Bowles, a retiring member of Con-

posts in the Kennedy cabinet.
Bowles has been considered a
possible choice for secretary of
state; Hodges for secretary of
But "the President-elect has not
talked to any person and asked
him to be a member of his cabi-
net," Kennedy press secretary
Pierre Salinger said.
Earlier, Kennedy and Bowles
had breakfast together at the

dence. Kennedy told newsmen that
they didn't discuss Bowles' future

To Examine
Union Policy
On Speakers
The Michigan Union will exa-
mine its speaker policy in the wake
of the recent political campaign,
Union President Perry Morton, '61,
said last night.
"Our present ruling doesn't
allow any political speeches at the
Union, Morton said, pointing out
the difficulties that were incurred
when Rep. Chester Bowels (D-
Conn) appeared there last month,
"Perhaps it's about time that the
University and the Union both
examine their bylaws on speakers."

Literary College Students
To Give Course Evaluations
Every student enrolled in a literary college course will have a
chance to evaluate the course and instructor next week, Prof. Wilbert
J. McKeachie of the psychology department, chairman of the com-
mittee on student opinion of courses and teaching, announced yes-
The evaluation program, which has been conducted about every
third semester for roughly ten years, will take place in most classes
on Tuesday and Wednesday, although there may be some teachers
- who will administer it later, if they
find it more convenient, Prof. Mc-
unsh loleKeachie explained,
r nshine 'Theindividual instructor will
distribute a form to be filled out
by all students in the class, which
will ask the student to comment
on the course and teacher and
express opinions on ways in which
he thinks the instruction or some
other aspects of course work may
be improved.
"We hope this will give the stu-
dent an opportunity to think abou"
his purposes in college, as well

as give the instructor some no-
tion of what he is getting across,
and help him in setting up the
course in the future and improv-
ing his teaching techniques."
"The material collected is pri-
marily for the use of the instruc-
tors, although individual depart-
ments may vote to review it if
they wish," he continued.
"When the program was first
implemented following a faculty
committee recommendation, stu-
dents were enthusiastic and eager
to have it," he said. "Now, how-
ever, the faculty feels that stu-
dents don't like it seriously
enough. The usefulness of the
