Consider Modernization Plans

College Roundup



Odiorne Cites Pro-NegroBias

The Union is presently consid-
ering numerous programs to re-
model and modernize its facilities,
but plans no major alterations or
additions to its physical plant in
the near future.
According to ",Union President
Raymond Rusnak, '64, the idea of
a large conference facility con-
nected with the Union, as pro-,
posed by the Union-League study
committee, is currently "in limbo.".
"The Union is still interested in
the idea but does not have the fi-
nancial resources to construct such
a center. "There is not much we
can do until the University decides
it wants one," Rusnak commented.
Pool Area
Another possibility for a major
alteration is the Union swimming
pool area. The Union has ap-
proached the architecture and de-
sign school on the possibility of
making a study, either as a class
project or a prize competition, of
the alternative uses of the pool
A Union study of two years ago
suggested turning the area into an
eating area for those with bag
lunches. Currently, the Union
cafeteria. is the only facility on
campus where bag lunches may be
However, according to Rusnak,
the area is too. valuable for use
as a bag lunch facility alone. "The
union's present policey Is to operate
the pool until a substantial outlay
is required to keep it open."
Study Pool Use
Rusnak added that a study is
currently being made of pool use.
"Approximately 100 men per day
use the facility. However, this
study will give us more detailed
information as to what segments
of the campus make use of the
pool and at what times."
In maintaining present facili-
ties, the Union is remodeling and
refurnishing 30 rooms in the new-
er wing. It intends to remodel one
"bank" of 30 rooms each year. In
addition, television sets are being
installed in each room.
Some older rooms on the fourth
floor presently house the offices of
the University. Sesquicentennial
Committee. Other rooms on this
floor continue to be operated as
guest rooms.
Not Guest Rooms
The facilities report of two years
ago termed the fourth-floor rooms
"not suitable" for use as guest
rooms. However, according to Rus-
nak, they are kept operating be-

HAMILTON, N.Y.-Colgate Uni-
versity will implement, effective
next fall, a distinctive program
which involves radical changes
from traditional approaches to un-
dergraduate education, according}
to a recent announcement by
President Vincent M. Burnett, Jr.
In essence, under the new Col-
gate Plan of Education, regular
semesters will be reduced in length
from 16 to 14 weeks, students will
typically enroll for four courses
rather than five, and a special
four-week study period will be
added to the academic year.
According to Dean of Faculty
James A. Storing, students will be
able to give more time to each
course and will thus become in-
volved in an in-depth learning
Unique Study Period

UNION POOL-The Union pool is one of several Union facilities
being considered for remodeling or modernization. While one
proposal would turn the pool space into an area in which stu-
dents could eat bag lunches, Union President Raymond Rusnak
claims that the pool area is too valuable for this purpose. A
study is under way to determine what segments of the campus
presently make use of the pool and at what times of the day.

cause there is a constant demand
for rooms with low rates.
The rooms have connecting
Union hotel business has not
suffered appreciably due to the in-
flux of new motels to the Ann Ar-
bor area, Rusnak said, since many
conferences are being attracted to
the new facilities.
"Due to the tremendous increase
in the number of such conferences,
our volume has actually gone up
in the past several years."
Provide Service
He added, though, that any at-
tempt by the Union to lure con-
ferences is tempered by its basic
commitment to provide services to
its members.
"We obviously would not book a
convention for the weekendof the
Michigan-Michigan State football
game," he said. "In fact, only life
members are allowed to make res-
ervations before the week preced-
ing football games."
Other alterations under consid-
eration include new lighting and

Cowley said it was within the
civil rights groups' prerogative to
bring a case to the HRC or to
the eyes of the public through its
own methods,
When asked if he expected to
have any difficulty dealing with
civi! rights groups consisting of
students and other persons con-
nected with the University, Cow-
ley replied.
"Hopefully, we will make con-
siderable progress by dealing with
enlightened groups."
Commenting on the foreign stu-
dent population in Ann Arbor, and
the problems which sometimes
arise concerning discrimination in
housing, Cowley said that he work-
ed with similar complaints in De-
troit dealing with foreign students
and visitors.
"Even though these complaints
have significance overseas we
work toward the basic problems
which cause discrimination. Spe-
cial consideration to foreign per-
sons can damage relations with
the established community, if the
problems are not carefully han-
dled," Cowley concluded.

The most radical change intro-
duced by the new 4-1 approach
will be the addition of the January
Special Studies Period. Prof.
Robert V. Smith, chairman of the
special sub-committee whichdraft-
ed this four-week session, said
"this period will encourage the
student to really go out on his
own, get 'inside' a subject, and
discover the excitement of in-
dependent scholarship. We hope
it will result in an awakening that
will last a lifetime."
Grades will be unimportant dur-
ing the Special Studies Period in
January. Students will be en-
couraged to undertake a field that
they might otherwise avoid be-
cause they are afraid of getting
poor marks. Study will be evaluat-
ed and criticized andstudents
will be expected to measure up
to high standards but the em-
phasis will be on 'learning' rather
than grade-point averages.
Students will be able to elect
topics of study from a panel of
more than 100 projects proposed
by members of the faculty.
Moreover, students will be able
to decide how they want to ap-
proach this special study period:
work in small groups, engage in
creative projects, participate in
off-campus study programs, or
develop special laboratory research
projects. If a student wishes, he
may develop a special project of
his own and seek out a faculty
member who will advise him.
University of Chattanooga's facul-
ty has decided to keep the uni-
versity's honor system in effect.
The move is contrary to student
opinion expressed in last year's
Prof. Herschel Sellers. chairman
of the Faculty Honors Commit-
tee, explained that the commit-
tee's decision to continue the
honor system was based on linm-
ited student participation in last
year's referendum and the pres-

ent aggressive Honors Council
leadership, which should strength-
en the system.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.-The Com-
mittee on Educational Policy of
Harvard's Faculty of Arts and
Sciences is questioning the value
of the three-hour final examina-
One view is that present exam-
inations are harmful to the stu-
dent's education. Prof. Paul H.
Buck of the history department
remarked, "It is quite possible
that the examining proces is to-
day carried to excess."
Several professors, however, see
their examinations as being vital
to the. educational process. Har-
vard Dean Franklin L. Ford feels
that the final examination per-
mits a student "to start thinking
and talking about what he has
been studying.''
thProf. George W. Goethats of
the social relations department,
said that ". . . a final examina-
tion is both aproper conclusion
Ito a course and a step forward
into new ways of thinking."
ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Recognition
will soon be denied to any Wash-
ington University organization
which practices discrimination in
the selection of members, Chan-
cellor Thomas H. Eliot said re-
"I am aware that we can't legis-
late personal preference, but per-
haps the fact that this freedom
of association is clearly univer-
sity policy may make religious or
racial prejudice unpopular. When
we come to the university com-
munity, we enter a new dimension.
The student must grow into this
new dimension," Eliot noted.
Panhel ToAct
On Infractions
Honor code violations occurring
during the recent rush period and
brought to the attention of Pan-
hellenic Association now that rush
is over will still be acted upon,
Marcia Marcotte, '64, Panhel
chairman of rushing counselors,
told the Panhel Presidents' Coun-
cil yesterday.
"Any violators who are reported
from now until the beginning of
the next rush period will still be
punished," Miss Marcotte said.
Although there are no fixed
penalties for violations, possible
actions are restriction of social
functions or reduction of the
pledge quota of the guilty house,
she added.
"We are looking- 'out for. the
spirit of the honor code, not the
actual rules, which most everyone
abides by," she said.

'U' to Wait
On .Policy
Despite a recent federal report
linking cigarette smoking to five
types of cancer, "no all-University
action will be taken at this time,
either educational or preventive,"
Vice-President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis said yesterday.
Lewis emphasized that Univer-
sity administrators with whom he
recently discussed the issue, agreed
that it would not be wise to apply
such "piecemeal" tactics as ban-
ning cigarette machines on cam-
He pointed out that the smo.-I
ing question was currently being
intensively studied by the State
Department of Health as well as
by various federal agencies. .'We
want to wait and see what their
recommendations are before we
launch into any program of action
"Within the next two or three
weeks, I will be discussing the
matter with several competent
people in areas of medicine and
public health. That's as far as
we're going now," Lewis said.
He added that the recent move
by the executive faculty of the
Medical School to remove cigarette
vending machines from all medical
school buildings affected only that
unit. In a similar vein, "PLEASE
DO NOT SMOKE" signs have
suddenly appeared on blackboards
all over campus, undoubtedly as a
result of the smoking report, Lewis.

When large companies recruit
employees to fill technicalrposi-
tions, they frequently almost dis-
criminate for Negroes rather than
against them, George S. Odiorne,
director of the Industrial Relations
Bureau, said yesterday.
"Businesses are accomn odating
themselves to the idea of equal
employment, and in fact they oft-
en lean the other way," he said.-
"In the )ast, discrimination was
widespread. Today, business is .%a
liberal force in civil rights. Busi-
ness firms are actively seeking Ne-
groes for managerial positions."
However, the University's Bu-
reau of Appointments does not
welcome companies to use the Uni-
versity's facilities if they specific-
ally request Negro applicants or
if they indicate that they will not
accept them, Evart W. Ardis, di-
rector of the Bureau, said.
'When we receive a request of
this type, we tell the company that
we keep neither photographs nor
records of race or religion in our
files and that we are unable to
help them. In addition, I would
write to the head of a company,
whose recruiter was engaged in
discriminatory recruiting practices
and indicate the Bureau's disap-
proval," Ardis commented.
Citing the need to increase the
number of opportunities in busi-
ness open to Negroes, Odiorne
claimed that thee business com-
munity hasn't succeeded in mak-
ing business an attractive career.
Need Public Relations
"Businesses haven't gotten the
story of their liberalized recruiting
practices to the Negro community,
and the Negro cannot get this in-

formation from his family or .in
his neighborhood," he noted.
"Negroes are more apt to go into
professions than into corporations.
"There are two steps a business
can take to encourage qualified
Negro students to pursue business
careers," Odiorne said. "First, to
get Negroes to study accounting or
computer programming, these
companies will have to put up
scholarship money.
"Second, businesses will have to
show that they promote Negroes
with ability, rather .than just hir-
ing them to sit out in the front
office," he concluded.
