Hear Complaints
On New College
Professors Question Feasibility,
Desirability of LSA Residential Unit
By ANN GWIRTZMAN
Literary college faculty members yesterday aired their complaints
about the proposed residential college at an open faculty meeting.
The opinion session was called by a special =faculty committee
headed by Prof. George E. Hay, chairman of the mathematics de-
partment, to hear any controversy before making its final recom-
mendations to the entire college faculty. Approximately 100 faculty
members attended.
A strong objection to the residential college was its undesir-
ability from the student's point of view. "The best part of this Uni-

RESEARCH:

Over Grants
WASHINGTON - Some of the
capital'srbitterest "porkhbarrel"
battles are being waged these days.
not over dams and highways but
over high-energy accelerators, re-
search centers and other multi-
million-dollar accouterments of
modern science, the Wall Street
Journal reported yesterday.
Scientists, businessmen and uni-
versity administrators are joining
politicians in the fray. Their at-
tack is being waged through mail
appeals, personal pilgrimages to
Washington and cries about fav-
oritism to certain parts of the
country.
The fight is heating regional
rivalries for Uncle Sam's research.
and development dollar to the{
burning point: Midwest congress-
men are threatening a major po-
litical protest this session over the
administration's failure to locate,
any big new science facilities in+
their area. Federal officials are
diligently seeking new ways to sat-
isfy the pleas of science-slighted;
areas, without sacrificing the
quality of government-financed
work.
The Midwest's major bone ofj
contention is the National Aero-
nautics and Space Administra-
tion's recent decision to locate a
$50 million electronics center in
Boston. At the request of Con-a
gress, NASA patiently heard bids
for the center from Michigan and
28 other localities, but chose to
give the project once more to]
Boston.
- NASA officials are fully pre-
pared for rough handling by Mid-j
western congressmen on the site
choice.
However the electronics centers
controversy comes out, regional
rivalry over major federal science
facilities and research funds is
certain to grow. One appetite-
whetter is simply the steep rise in
federal research and development
outlays from $9.3 billion as re-
cently as the fiscal year ended
in mid-1961 to an expected $15.3
billion in fiscal 1965, which starts
this July.
There are several juicy plums
on the immediate horizon. A pro-
posed $30 million-plus environ-
mental health center to study air
and water pollution has been hung
up for three years in interstate
struggling over its site.
Another dispute swirls around
government research grants, which
admittedly flow unevenly to the
nation's universities. In the last
fiscal year, 10 of the nation's 2100
colleges and universities received
40 per cent of the $900 million in
federal research funds awarded to
higher education institutions.
The remedy preferred to thisJ
problem by the grant-giving Na-

" ersity is a function of its size,"
Prof. Daniel N. Fader of the Eng-
lish department said.
Students have been "spoon-fed"
In high school, he added, and the
residential college will be "another
hothouse environment where they
will never learn to be students on
their own."
Applicable Results?
Another d o u b t concerned
whether the results of the experi-
ment would be useful if applied to
the literary college.
Another drawback mentioned
was that locating the college away'
from central campus, uerhaps on
North Campus, would limit the;
a m o u n t of science - laboratory
courses that could be offered.
"This does involve a transpor-1
tation problem, but the solution is
not essentially more difficult than
on the regular campus," Prof.
David M. Dennison, chairman of
the physics department, replied.
Residence halls would have to
be financed and constructed and
the problem of students living in
apartments would have to be dealt
with, some faculty members point-
ed out. "Residence halls are not
usually part of the appropriation,"
Prof. Hay said.a
Autonomous?
Another moot point concerned
the degree of autonomy the pro-j
posed residence college should have
from the literary college. Giving
it its own dean and budget would
put the residence college in the
"position of a beggar" as far as
bidding for faculty is concerned,
one participant commented.
"It is not necessarily our plan
that these experiments will pro-1
duce changes in the literary col-C
lege," Prof. Hay replied. The ideaf
rather is to create an atmosphere
were innovation can be in-
stituted.
Other questions predicted-that
the tremendous capital investmei~t
will have an impact on what struc-
ture already exists in the literary
college, as well as adding prob-
lems of maintenance. They point-
ed out that experimentation al-1
ready has been under way for some
time with regard to the honors3
college.
The proposed college will face
the problem of finding instructors,
as well as that of financing the
additional buildings. Diverting
money from the literary college's
budget could lead. to a gradual7
lowering of quality in its ranks,
several faculty members warned.
"We understand that funds will
come from a separate and unfore-
seeable source," Prof. Oleg Gra-
bar of the history of art depart-
ment replied for the Hay Com-,
mittee.c
Student-faculty contact would2
be as limited as presently, if the
University's current student-fac-c
ulty ratio were maintained and ift
faculty lived away from the res-t
idential college, a faculty membert
remarked.

Charges
Kashmir
Violation
NEW DELHI (A'-India charged
yesterday that Pakistani irregu-
lars crossed the cease-fire line in
disputed Kashmir and attacked a
25-man Indian police patrol.
It said all but two of the In-
dians were either killed or cap-
tured.
In Pakistan, the official gov-
ernment radio said Pakistani
forces, acting in self-defense,
fired upon an Indian patrol that
entered the Pakistani section of
Kashmir. It made no mention of
casualties.
Files Complaint
India filed a complaint with
United Nations military observers
along the cease-fire line and they
set out for an investigation.
The clash, latest in the 16-year-
old Kashmir dispute, occurred Fri-
day near Keran, a town on the
Krishen Ganga River, 60 miles
northwest of Sprinagar, capital
of Indian Kashmir.
It came at a time when Paki-
stan, turning from its staunch
pro-West policy, promised "friend-
ly cooperation" with neighboring
Red China. In return, Red China,
switching its previous stand, gave
support to Pakistan in the Kash-..
mir dispute. These developments
grew out of three days of talks in
Pakistan between Premier Chou
En-lai of Red China and Presi-
dent Mohammed Ayub Khan of1
Pakistan.;
Deliberate Attack
In New Delhi, a spokesman for
Prime Minister Nehru's ruling
Congress Party said Pakistan de-
liberately may have staged an
attack to impress Chou.
Indian Defense Minister Y. B.
Chavan told Parliament that the
attack was made by Pakistani ir-
regulars - not regular troops as
previously announced by the de-
fense ministry-on the Indian side
of the cease-fire line, established
in January 1949 after nearly two
years of bloody fighting.
"It is feared that some of the
missing persons must have been
killed and the others captured,"i
Chavan said He added that the
patrol consisted of 24 constables
of the Uttar Pradesh provincialt
armed constabularydand one sub-
inspector.
Judges Reject
Ruby Appeal
DALLAS (A) - The Texas Su-c
preme court turned down yester-I
day a defense request to hear ar-
guments that persons who saw Leev
Harvey Oswald shot to death on
television could not qualify as
jurors in the Jack Ruby murder
trial.
In effect, the nine-member courtc
upheld an earlier courtroom rul-F
ing by Dallas Dist. Judge Joe B.c
Brown that seeing the shooting oft
Oswald on television did not dis-
qualify a prospective juror. Thet
high court made no comment ins
denying the defense request. I
The action could set a legal pre-c
cedent since it involves the firsts
case in Texas in which televisionc
audiences saw an actual killing.
Ruby's attorneys have sought ar
change of venue, contending thatt
their client could not obtain a fairc
trial in Dallas because of the in-v
tensive news coverage of the slay-I
ing of Oswald.s

Announce New

Flu

Vaccine)

i

New Drug
To Eliminate
Side Effects
Maintains Potency
Without Any Fever
By STEVEN HALLER
University President H a r l a n
Hatcher has announced a new
influenza vaccine which will give
the same protection as current
vaccines but without "bothersome
constitutional side effects."
Prof. Albert V. Hennessy of the
public health school explained that
the new vaccine, developed by
scientists under the direction of
himself and Prof. Fred Davenport,
eliminates the 101-102 degree fever
experienced by many patients.
He added that such a fever, if
it occurs following the usual vac-
cination, comes within the first
24 hours and hits children espe-
cially hard.
Reason Still Unknown
Just why the new vaccine does
not spark the same reaction as
current treatments is still shroud-
ed in mystery. Prof. Hennessy
suggested that the answer might
be found by investigating two
groups of chemical substances
which are removed from- the in-
fluenza virus before it is injected
in the new vaccine.
These substances are lipopro-
teins--proteins attached to fats-
and nucleoproteins.
"Our next step will involve look-
ing into these substances to see
why the new vaccine, from which
they have been removed, should
act differently without them,"
Prof. Hennessy said.
The old and new vaccines differ
considerably from one another in
physical appearance. The stand-
ard vaccine resembles raw egg-
white, while the feverless vaccine
is clear.
Equal Protection
However, carefully controlled
tests on scores of Michigan chil-
dren and adults show that the
protective values of the new vac-
cine are practically identical with
the regular vaccine.
Prof. Hennessy explained that
the two vaccines have the same
antibiotic level, and although all
protection tests have not yet been
completed "we expect identical re-
sults from one vaccine to the
other."
Prof. Hennessy noted that it
might be at least two years before
the feverless vaccine will be put
on the market. But when it is, it
will be of "great benefit" and will
be able to be used on a far wider
scale than the vaccine now in use.

Oral Briefs
LANSING (P) - The Michigan
Supreme Court yesterday set forth
two questions of timing and one
of limitation, which it said must
be considered in a decision on
legislative reapportionment.
The court asked that the argu-
ments include:
-Whether the court must con-
sider "all constitutional require-
ments, federal and state," or re-
strict itself only to determining
which plan complies with the state
constitution.
-Whether the court may act
now "with due propriety," in view
of the fact that the United States
Supreme Court has yet to rule in
a suit challenging the apportion-
ment of the Senate under the old
state constitution.
-Whether it may properly act
before, rather than after, a three-
judge United States District Court
renders a decision in another suit
challenging Senate apportionment

president and Laura Fitch, '66, ad-
ministrative president.
Miss Wickins will replace Pa-
tricia Elkins, '64, as Panhel's chief
officer, after a March 5 installa-
tion.
Panhel Outlook
Panhel's outlook must take into
account significant concerns of
the University such as "trimester'
the residential college and liberal-
zation of women's hours as factors
contributing to the internal con-
cerns of the sorority system," Miss
Wickins, who is a member of Sig-
ma Kappa Sorority, said.
Miss Telfer is a member of Col-
legiate Sorosis and Miss Fitch is
a member of Gamma Phi Beta.
Other women elected to Panhel
offices were Jean Upham, '66, of
Pi Beta Phi, secretary; Mary Beth'
Braden, '66 of Pi Beta Phi, trea-
surer; Karen Boatman, '65, of Al-
pha Omicron Pi, scholarship'
chairman; Anne Smith, '66, of
Kappa Delta, public relations
chairman; Betty Cowden, '65, ofj
Alpha Chi Omega, chairman of
rush chairmen, and Karen Hub-
bard, '65, of Alpha Delta Pi, chair-
man of rush counselors. Miss Hub-
bard was a write-in candidate.
Future Concerns
In discussing the future con-
cerns of Panhel, Miss Wickins said
that she thought faculty opinion
and comments on the sorority sys-
tem should be given careful con-
sideration. She expressed an in-
terest in possibly establishing a

faculty associate program for each
collegiate sorority chapter on
campus.
The biggest challenge facing the
sororities in the next year centers
around the rush system, Miss
Wickins indicated. Panhel will be
working toward the smooth imple-
mentation of the new less-struc-
tured rush plan which will go into
effect next year.
After election results were tal-
lied, Miss Elkins said that she
Was "quite pleased" with the out-
come.

NICOSIA (A') - President Arch-
bishop Makarios is considering
recognition of Red China and may
ask for a session of the UN Gen-
eral Assembly, Greek Cypriot
sources said yesterday.
The Cyprus question has been
taken up by the UN Security
Council in New York but behind
the scenes talks apparently have
made little progress toward get-
ting an accord.
Recognition of the Peking re-
gime would be aimed at what the
Nicosia sources called United
States-British opposition to Ma-
karios' plea that the Security
Council guarantee Cyprus' terri-
torial integrity and independence.
This in effect would override the
1960 treaty signed by Cyprus,
Britain, Turkey and Greece.
Neutral Support
In a General Assembly session
Makarios feels nonaligned Afri-
can and Asian votes would give
him the guarantee despite west-
ern opposition, the sources said.
They said Makarios is als(, dis-
satisfied with the Nationalist Chi-
nese stand on Cyprus in the Se-
curity Council, where the Chinese
are among the five nations with
veto power.
The sources said that as the re-
sult of United States-British op-
position to his goveenmernt's view-
point, Makarios is considering
switching his foreign pol.cy from a
pro-Western stance to an anti-
Western stance. They said this
may result in recognition of Red
China. Cyprus now hai iplomat-
tc relat~ons with the Nehonalist
Chinese government on Formosa.

If Makarios does decide on an
anti-Western switch, the United

Heyns Cites
Last Year's
Resignations
Tells of 'Trouble
After Lean Years
As Resources Diminish
By H. NEIL BERKSON
One University vice-president
revealed some alarming statistics
on staff problems, and another re-
ceived a grilling on the Univer-
sity's building program, as state
legislators camehere yesterday to
examine next year's budget re-
quest.
Eighteen members of the key
Senate Appropriations and House
Ways and Means Committees were
closeted with University officials
for nearly three hours in a back-
ground session aimed at explain-
ing the Regents' $47.6 million and
$12.6 million requests for operat-
ing and capital outlay funds, re-
spectively.
Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Roger W. Heyns told the
legislators that the University is
"in real trouble after some very
lean years. Our resources are at;
an end."
Salary Situation
Heyns said the salary-situation
here is such that "90 per cent of
our faculty could get a competi-:
tive offer that we would have,
trouble meeting." Resignations, he
said, are rising: "We're losing peo-
ple we want to keep." He ticked
off the following statistics:
-Resignations in the ranks of
assistant, associate and full pro-
fessor numbered 61 last year. The
primary reason for the high nun-
ber, Heyns said, was better offers
from other universities, industry
and government.
-Other institutions were able
to offer salaries which averaged
$2500-3000 higher than the Uni-
versity's saary range.
-In the literary college alone,
there were 31 resignations last
year. This figure doubles that of
1962 and triples that of 1961.
Losses included 16 tenure profes-
sors (associate dr higher) and 1
others, from 13 different depart-
ments.
Not Matching Salaries
The University, Heyns said, Is
not matching salary movements in
higher education. AAUP statistics
show that the salary level here
has dropped from fourth in the
nation in 1958 to twentieth today,
Replacement difficulties, Heyns
added, increase the problem.
"When we lose a man with a
$7000-8000 salary, it costs at least
$9000-10,000 to fill his job."
Next year's budget request gives
top priority to salary increases, al-
locating $3.3 million toward that
end.
Slide Show
Earlier, Vice-President for Busi-
ness and Finance Wilbur K. Pier-
Pont gave his usual slide presenta-
tion on the University's building
plans. Legislators were disturbed
about two aspects of the increase
in federal support for construc-
tion in recent years:
-Who has to pay maintenance
costs on buildings after the federal
government builds them, and
-Does the University spend
federal funds on state-appropriat-
ed projects "shifting" the state al-
locations to unauthorized areas?
Pierpont's answers left the legis-
lators unsatisfied.
Sen. Frank Beadle (R-St. Clair),
chairman of the Appropriations
Committee, said he thought costs
for freshman-sophomore building
-quoted by Pierpont as $22-25 per
square foot-were out of line.
Beadle also asked if the Univer-
sity would consider a tuition in-
crease to raise some of the funds

the Legislature might not provide.
University President Harlan
Hatcher answered in the negative.
"That's what I expected you to
say," Beadle replied. He added
later, "When I went to school we
considered it proper to pay for
something so important to us."

special To The Daily
DEARBORN-The University has made a literal inroad into
the community here.
When it opened a four-building senior college in 1959 on a
donated 212 acre site, University Vice-President and Director for
the Dearborn Center William E. Stirton vowed community accept-
ance as his top priority mission.
Today, he traces with his hand a symbol of that acceptance-
the ac of a long sidewalk projecting out towards the community
where it is joined'several hundred yards out by the Henry Ford
Community College.
This "cement epitome," which physically bridges the state-
supported and local-supported institutions represents only one
of a series of Stirton's measures aimed at convincing Dearborn
citizens that the University wasn't a "ruthless" educational over-
lord coming to take over from Ann Arbor, he explains.

as well as 600 full-time graduate students and several thousand
part-time extension pupils to use its facilities.
Expanding Population
Cuurrently, an expanding full-time population surpassing
700 takes the last two years of baccalaureate training in pro-
grams ranging from electrical engineering to public accounting
to interdepartmental sociology-psychology.
Both the business administration and engineering divisions
offer graduate degrees and Stirton aims to Include shortly liberal
arts within this category.
As he has brought a Center to the community, so also has he
endeavored to bring Dearborn to Ann Arbor.
The walls of the classroom building are decorated in maize
and blue stripes and the lunchroom chairs also give hail to the
colors, Stirton points out.
The community has not been unmindful of this two-way
Dearborn-Ann Arbor association. The Zonta Club of Dearborn-an
influential women's group-offers several scholarships for Dear-
born students as well as loan assistance.
