Student-Faculty Cooperation Attempt Flou
By MARY LOU BUTCHER
A Student Government Council effort at bridge-building
between students and faculty has proved largely ineffective-
so far, at least.
Last spring, SGC endorsed student participation without vote
on subcommittees of the Senate Advisory Committee on University
Each of these faculty subcommittees is concerned with a
particular area of University policy, and submits proposals
through SACUA to the University Senate- the faculty's official
voice. In seeking to get students on them, SGC discarded an
earlier proposal to initiate some form of student-faculty govern-
At the same time, Council decided to create its own parallel
nine-subcommittee structure to facilitate the seating of students,
pending each subcommittee's consent.
In response to the request, several subcommittees agreed last
fall to seat students and to allow them to participate freely in
However, a recent poll of subcommittee chairmen revealed
that only seven of 15 students named as representatives by SGC
have participated in meetings.
Two chairmen noted that they had never received acknowl-
edgment from Council or from individual students.
Prof. George M. McEwen of the engineering English depart-
ment, chairman of the bylaws subcommittee, indicated that an
invitation to seat students was extended to Council even though
SGC never had requested one.
Willing, But No Reply
He commented that subcommittee members had "indicated
that they would be willing to have student participants" but that
"no students replied to my letter."
He said that he didn't know whether the faculty members
felt that students could contribute to the meetings but noted
there was a feeling that "if the students wanted to see what we
were doing, we didn't mind having them."
The chairman of the student relations subcommittee, Prof.
Richard L. Cutler of the psychology department, also pointed out
that he had not been contacted by SGC after sending two letters
welcoming student participation on his subcommittee.
Two other chairmen interviewed revealed that their subcom-
mittees decided against seating students after considering the
Council request, because of the possible inhibiting effect of their
According to Prof. Claude A. Eggertsen of the education
school, chairman of the University freedom and responsibility
subcommittee, students have not yet met with his group.
Expected No Students
"We are now taking up an issue that we hadn't anticipated
having students participate in discussing. It would be extremely
difficult to take them in now and inform them about. the
deliberations," he explained.
One subcommittee has not yet seated students simply because
it has not held any meetings this year. Prof. Stuart W. Churchill
of the chemical engineering department, chairman of the year-
round operations 'subcommittee noted that the group did not
meet last fall "because the University had not yet developed its
plans and there was not much point in meeting."
On the reverse side of the coin, there was a generally
favorable reaction to student participants from those five chair-
men whose subcommittees had agreed to seat them.
Most, however, felt that one student representative per
subcommittee was sufficient.
In naming students to the faculty groups, SGC attempted to
place two students on each. Currently, only two subcommittees
are operating in the presence of two students.
The three chairmen of the groups having only one student
delegate felt io need for an increase in representation.
Not Much To Do
"Actually, there is very little he can do but be a participating
observer," Prof. Merle Waterman of the business administration
school said of the student representative to his Campus Planning
and Development subcommittee.
He noted that the presence of one student at meetings has
worked out well and that he saw "no reason for more in the
A deterrent to active participation on the part of students
cited by Prof. Waterman is the "problem of continuity." He
noted that to be actively involved in the discussions a member
must be on the subcommittee for a while.
Regarding continued student participation with the planning
subcommittee, he said, "If SGC wants to send us someone as
good as the student we have now, we'll be glad to have him."

The Committee of Plant Expansion, headed by Dean Stephen H.
Spurr of the Natural Resources School, has evolved a plan to update
University Vice-President and Di-
rector of the Dearborn Center
William E. Stirton. According to
Stirton, there is a desire to keep
the Dearborn school limited to the
last two years.
The Ford Community College,
an industry-supported school lo-
cated adjacent to the Dearborn
\Center and serving freshmen and
sophomores only, has both the ca-
pacity and desire to fulfill the
needs for education during these
two years, Stirton said.
"Ford has three functions: of-'
fering a terminal occupational or
vocational education; offering
adult education and providing a
college parallel for freshmen and
sophomores who cannot afford to
go to school away from home.
No Third Function
"If the Dearborn Center were
to expand to four years, it would
rob the Ford College of this third
function. There is great concern
at that college that this would
leave only a trade school," Stirto
Earlier in the session, Vice-
President Pierpont presented an
outline of the University's build-
ing program, complete with sdes
of buildings under construction or
in the planning stage.
he listed three consideatio:s
behind any decision to construct
- There must be no unused or
inefficiently used capacity in exist-
ing structures. In this regard be
mentioned the Architecture and
Ocs gr Bldg, constructed in the
1930's for 350-400 students and
now housing over 700.
Remodeling Impossible j
-There must be no possihility
of remodeling existing structures.
"A building will be torn down
only if it is completely obsolete,
in the wrong location or impossible
to renovate," he said.
--There must be complete pro-
gr.m planning of just what is to
be done with a new building be-
fore it will even be considered.
When asked by. an alumnus
whether the lack of central plan-
ning in construction among the
state's 10 institutions isn't di;as-
trous, Pierpont replied that 'the
new constitution reaffirms the re-
sponsibility of the Regents to
operate the University's building
program autonomously. There
must be something behind this
"Any other state that has at-
tempted to control its state educa-

not done a very good job," he said.

LANSING (RP)-Outgoing Assist-
ant Secretary of State Roger
Hilsman last night said the Com-
munistss' guerrilla tactics in South
Viet Nam ultimately will become
as unprofitable for them as their
aggression against South Korea
in 1950 and the offshore is-
lands in 1958.k
In a speech to a conference of
the United States National Stu-
dents' Association, he said the
winds of change are blowing full
gale in Southeast Asia and the
task ahead will not be easy.
He called for a "full orchestra-
tion" of the United States mili-
tary, economic and diplomatic ef-
forts in South Viet Nam to meet
the Communist challenge.
"I am confident that the atten-
tion now ;devoted to combatting
the type of warfare we now face
in Viet Nam will ultimately make
terrorist activity and guerrilla
warfare as unprofitable for the
Communists as was their frontal
aggression against Korea in 1950
and against the offshore islands
in 1958," he said.
Hilsman said he spoke as a
government official, but one who
had recently decided to return to
academic life. He made no other
reference tc his resignation "an-
nounced by the White House Tues-
day. But he said:
"The frustrations are many,,
both in the field and in Washing-
"There have been temporary set-
backs such as the uncertainty and
slowdown of military activity
which accompanied the military
coups" in.South Viet Nam.
Hilsman said despite such frus-
trations the United States is per-
fecting its ability to use resources'
to best advantage in Viet Nam.
'The tools are in Vietnamese
hards," he added. "Their nerves
are steady and their determina-
tion remains high."
