Policy-a kers

Assess

Off-Campus

Eucato

(First of a Three-Part Series)
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
The policies guiding the education of 12,000 'off-campus students
are currently being assessed by a battery of top-level University policy
makers.
Although working independently and informally right now, sev-
eral Regents, a faculty committee and the Office of Academic Affairs
are all involved in setting the new focus for the 53-year-old University
Extension Service.
The Extension Service is authorized by the Regents to provide
"educational advantages" for residents of the state who are not in
a position to pursue University programs in residence.
Standard Courses
The bulwark of this extension program has always been the extra-
mural credit course program whereby undergraduates and graduatey
may receive standard courses in liberal education, arts, business ad-

ministration and engineering taught by University or adjunct staff
members.
Traditionally, the orientation of the extramural program has been
an expansive statewide operation reaching into the tips of the North-
ern peninsula.
That's what the current re-focusing procedure is all about-
to weigh the expansive programs against the more economically and
educationally feasible plan of concentrating courses in the population-
cramped zone of Southeast Michigan.
But the Extension Service's trend of expansion has a long his-
tory-one which politically attuned administrators are not so willing
to abandon blithely.
Largest, Most Diverse
Its first half century featured the offering of the "largest and
most diverse" quantity of academic courses throughout the state,
according to Extension Director Everett Soop.
Historically, this meant that more than 40 per cent of the total

courses given by the University faculty and adjunct staff were offered
away from a higher education campus.
But as current preliminary studies-taken by the Extension Serv-
ice itself-have indicated, the next 50 years presents the need for a
somewhat new focus. Other state schools are entering the course
offering market in unprecedented splurges.
In the past five years alone, Michigan State University has ex-
panded its number of offered courses by almost 30 per cent (or 109
courses) and Northern Michigan University has practically doubled
its "extramural course programs," as the off-campus credit courses
are officially titled.
In the same five year time interval, the University has cut back
its extramural program six per cent, thus emphasizing what admin-
istrators have characterized as the new state-wide extension picture-
that there are not now just a couple, but nine state-supported uni-
versities actively engaged in the extramural field. The University can
only be expected to decline quantitatively, officials say.

The more qualitative centralizing approach is called for, they ad
Soop sums up this situation by noting that the educational re
ities of the statewide picture must replace the institutional prejud
that "we can do it best all over Michigan."
Series of 'Revisions
This attitude may be reflected in a broad series of revisions wh
Vice-President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns is expected
bring before the Regents within a few months.
Although officials note that the revisions to extension serv
are only in the consideration stage they explain that new focus
centralizatiop-can be the only ultimate decision.
The new role of centralization that extension service people fo
see is actually only an official continuation of the current policy whi
is geared to orient course offerings in the Southeast Michigan regi
bounded by Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Detroit, Flint and Southern Oa
land and Macomb Counties.

Harvey Claims Ghana
Gave No Explanation,
Believes Nkrumnah Made Decision
To ExpelHim, Four Professors
By RAYMOND HOLTON
Prof. William B. Harvey of the Law School, who recently returned
to Ann Arbor after being expelled from Ghana University, said he
was given no detailed explanation by the Ghanian government for
his deportation..
"The only thing I heard concerning the matter was that Presi-
dent Kwame Nkrumah had mistakenly thought I advocated the
divorce of law from social values," Harvey said in a press conference
here yesterday. "This conception is 100 per cent wrong and this is
"about the only specific reason I

Sholle Suit
A federal court in Detroit Mon-
day upheld the controversial 80-20
apportionment formula in Mich-
igan's new constitution and dis-
missed a suit by Michigan AFL-
CIO President August Scholle
challenging the formula.
The special three-judge panel,
in a 2-1 decision, reasoned that
the voters approved the apportion-
ment formula when they approved
the new constitution last April.
An attorney for Scholle however
said an appeal would be taken to
the United States Supreme Court.
Scholle called the decision "legal
antics and semantics."
Capricious Formula
Scholle had contended that any
system for drawing legislative
lines' under the new constitution's
formula would be "irrational, arbi-
trary and capricious" and "invid-
iously and purposefully discrim-
inatory" against urban voters.
Gov. George Romney claimed
that "the decision of the court
confirms both the decision of the
Constitutional Convention and the
judgment of the people of Mich-
igan in approving our new con-
stitution."
State Attorney General Frank J.
Kelley had joined Scholle as an
intervening plaintiff in the case'
but at the same time appointed a
team of attorneys to defend the
apportionment system.
Judiciary Tyranny
In the majority opinion Judge
Fred W. Kaess wrote that it would
be a "tyranny by the judiciary"
for the court "in the name of ma-
jority rule" to throw out provisions
of a constitution approved only a
year ago by a majority of Mich-
igan voters."]
The dissenter, Judge Stephen J.
Roth, contended that the con-
stitution failed to meet either fed-
eral or state standards for equal1
protection as provided in the 14thj
Amendment of the United States
Constitution.
He held that unless the Legis-
lature reapportions itself of the
basis of equal population, mem-
bers of both the House and Sen-
ate should be elected at large.
Constitution Constitutionality
Roth also questioned whether
the Constitutional' Convention
that wrote the document was not
called in violation of the 14th
Amendment b e c a u s e delegates
were chosen from old House and
Senate districts.
The Michigan Supreme Court
currently is wrestling with the
problem of choosing between Re-
publican and Democratic plans for

.tion," he remarked.
'Subversive Actions'
Harvey, who had been dean of
the Ghana University's law school
since September of 1962, is one
of four American professors who
were ordered out of Ghana on
grounds of "subversive activities."
Harvey said he believed Nkru-
mah made the final decision. Har-
vey added that he was denied the
details of the charges by govern-
ment offiicals, including Nkru-
mah.
"I went to Ghana strictly as an
educator and tried to'limit my
role strictly to education," he
commented.
Enough Evidence?
"Government officials told me
that they had enough evidence to
take the charges to court. They
had no answer when one of us
asked them why they didn't file
the charges," Harvey noted.
He denied that he had any con-
nection with the United States
State Department.
"I have no idea as to whether
I will be contacted by State De-
partment officials.dMy knowledge
of Ghana is anything but secret.
The State Department probably
knows more about the situation
than I do."
Harvey returned to Ann Arbor
March 12 from London where he
was recovering from an attack of
hepatitis and malarial fever.
Harvey expressed hope that the
work of American educators may
continue in Ghana. "I urged my
colleagues on the faculty to re-
main and continue their work."
There are still four Americans on
the Ghana law school faculty.

Image Push
The Fraternity Presidents' As-
sembly last night discussed pro-
posed committee action to raise
the academic image of campus
fraternities.
Compiling more academic statis-
tics, obtaining academic advisors
for fraternities and increasing
publicity for fraternity scholar-
ship programs were among the
ideas mentioned. It was suggested
that a procedure for formal con-
demnation of fraternities with
consistently poor academic rec-
ords be devised.

Two University students have been caught for attempting-to pry
up the University's "M" from, the center of the Diag early Sunday
morning.
They failed, but damaged the "M" enough to force the Uni-

Faculty Loss
At Wayne State
DETROIT (P)-Wayne State Uni-
versity President Clarence B. Hil-
berry deplored yesterday the loss
of four professors to Florida At-
lantic University which will be
opened at Boca Raton next Sep-
tember.
"Loss of key faculty members,"
Hilberry said, "has been a most
serious problem for the last four
years because of the university's
inability to provide competitive
salaries.
No Relief
"We have repeatedly emphasiz-
ed our needs to the State Legisla-
ture, and unless funds are provid-
ed we shall continue to experience
this kind of situation, where new
and more prosperous institutions
attract our best people."
Those reported by Hilberry to
be going to the Florida univer-
sity - an upper division school
with junior, senior and graduate
students-are: Francis C. Rose-.
crance, dean of education and
Palmer C. Pilcher, assistant dean
of the graduate division.
More
Also, John W. Sullivan, profes-
sor of business administration, and
Don Clare, professor of political
science, will be leaving for Boca
Raton.-
Wayne, as do most other Michi-
gan universities, refused to disclose
pay of faculty members.

en passers by first noticed the at-
riano, '65, and Joseph Toussaint,

the matter to Sanford Security,
Service.
Inform Police
University Security Officer Al-
bert E. Heusel'said that his office
informed the Ann Arbor police as
soon as it learned of the matter.
The two vandals were surprised
by police as theyhcontinued in
their attempts. They attempted
to escape by running south from
the Diag, but were apprehended
by officers as they crossed S. Uni-
versity St., police reported.
Ann Arbor Detective-Lieutenant
Gregory Kadapodos reported that
the two were drunk when arrested.
No Statement
The alleged vandals have re-
leased no official statement as
yet, but have admitted their guilt
to police and University authori-
ties.
The Office of Student Affairs
is expected to release a statement
tomorrow concerning the Univer-
sity's course of action.
Police officials released the two
offenders early Sunday, morning
as no specific charges had been
placed against them. They are
now free pending a conference
this afternoon with the parties
involved.
The two are also accused of
having stolen a crowbar the same
night, later using it in their at-
tempt to pry loose the "M" The
wrecking company from which the
bar was stolen, however, has not
indicated whether or not it in-
tends to press charges against the
two.
When asked why they commit-
ted the crime, the students in-
voived told The Daily that they
were drunk and that they had
done it as a joke.

Student Government Council
tonight will hash over ,a large
number of motions proposed in
the recent election campaign.
Barry Bluestone, '65, has sub-
mitted a proposal to recommend
to the Office of Student Affairs a
revision of the present regulations
for women's hours.
Specifically the motion calls for
totally eliminating hours for jun-
ior women as well as allowing
both sophomore and junior women.
apartment privileges.
Voting Penalties
Bluestone also is co-sponsoring
a motion with Carl Cohen, '66,
which asks for establishing penal-
ties for SGC election irregularities.
It asks that both individuals and
student organizations be levied
fines if they have been adjudged
guilty by Joint Judiciary Council
of submitting any fradulent bal-
lots in the elections.
Cohen had also proposed setting
up a constituent assembly in order
to "increase interest in SGC" and
to provide better communication
between SGC and the students.
Draft Card?
Bluestone is proposing a motion
to require other identification than
the student 'I-D' in the SGC elec-
tions.
In addition, Bluestone is asking
that the Continental Co-operative
Bookstore receive $750.00 from
SGC to help students who are
setting up the new bookstore.
Don Filip, '65, will present a mo-
tion that asks for the restructuring
of SOC's committee system. It
calls for a shifting of the legisla-
tive committees from under the
administrative vice-president to
the executive vice-president.

WASHINGTON UP)-Sen. Strom
Thurmond (D-SC) set a long-talk
record in the Senate's current civil
rights debate yesterday amid signs
that the first vote will be delayed
until next week.
It had been expected this week.
Thurmond, the 12th of 19
Southern senators planning to
speak at length against the leg-
islation, surpassed the 1964 record
of just under four hours set last
week by Sen. Russell B. Long (D-
La) and went right on talking.
As usual only three or four
senators could be seen as Thur-
mond hammered away at the mo-
tion that has been pending in
eight days of debate-whether to
take up the controversial House-
passed civil rights measure.
Thurmond contended "they are
railroading through this bill" and
declared it would destroy both
individual and civil liberties.
He said the legislation would
encourage "more civil disobedi-
ence"-racial demonstrations, pro-
tests, marches and sit-ins.

(Last of a Three-Part Series)
By ROBERT JOHNSTON
Prof. Philip S. Jones of the math department explains the
present day activity in mathematics research by saying that
"math is definitely a growing and developing field, even thoughh
the nonmathematician usually doesn't realize it.,"
eHe points out that an understanding of math's rapid;
growth and development is essential to an understanding of
the place of math in the overall research scheme.
Centuries LaterM
Prof. Paul R., Halmos sums it up by saying that research
eventually does turn up in practical applications, though this
. often may be several centuries later. "Or a specific branch of
N math may be developed in answer to several problems in anotherr
field.
Still, Prof. Albert E. Heins. whose research is in working$
with direct connections between mathematical developments;
and physics, readily explains that the matematical questions
{ he works with are very much of interest to him "in their own,
right."
And Prof. Donald J. Lewis describes his work in number
theory as a "pure branch of math, working with intriguingo
questions with no forseeable applications. Lots of mathematics
started this way, but men have been working with numbera
theory for 2000 years and it hasn't been used yet."
Well-Ordered Solution
Prof. Lewis declares that his motivation lies strictly in the
satisfaction gained in solving difficult problems. "Whether or
:f not the work is useful, the same degree of happiness comes
from a well-ordered solution to a difficult problem.".
While all the professors in the mathematics department are,
very much interested in their research work, this is not to say
that teaching is a neglected part of the art. Prof. George E. Hay,
mathematics department chairman, asserts; "The department
is dedicated to teaching at all levels," but notes also some
extra emphasis at the graduate level.
"For the graduate especially, education and research are
interwoven." Most of the department's professors teach both
an undergraduate and a graduate course.
Teaching |esearch
Prof. Hay adds that the department is also doing research
in the teaching of math and the development of course mate-
rials at all levels. One group is working specifically on under-
graduate teaching problems.
The intimate connection between research and teaching
is reaffirmed by Prof. Halmos. "No one can teach a subject
if he knows that subject and nothing else. One doesn't have
to be a great research man in a particular field to teach, but
he must be a master of it and be in contact with other human .
endeavor," he says.
A tenuous research-education connection at the elementary
level is admitted by Prof. Halmos because of the unchanging
character of the basic subject matter which must be mastered'
first. "But at the advanced level they have everything to do
with each other," he explains. The nature of math teaching
also depends on its object, he asserts. "We can aim to create
educated people or to create specialists."
Complementary
Prof. Heins also affirms the complementary aspect of
research and teaching. He teaches the "rudimentary" aspects
of his work with applied mathematics and physics to graduate
students. "Some teaching is good for me; it helps me avoid
frustration. The two areas cannot be separated."

To Evaluate
Action by Fail
New Senior College
May Bid for Funds,
Considers 'U' Backing
By ROBERT HIPPLER
The issue of University expan-
sion at Delta Junior College in
the Saginaw Bay City area is far
from settled.
State legislators, University of-.
ficials and leaders of the pro-
posed private Saginaw Valley sen-
ior college-adjacet to ;Delta-
have tacitly decided to wait until
early next fall before even dis-
cussing officially the prospects of
University expansion into the area.
That will be after Gov. George
Romney's Citizens' Committee on
Higher Education has submitted
its long-range report on higher
education in Michigan.
Await Recommendation
The legislators and officials ex-
pect the committee will make a
general recommendation concern-
ing the value and advisability of
major state universities branching
out.
If the "blue ribbon" report en-
dorses the branch principle, then
"serious talks with the University
and Delta area citizens may be-
gin," one official said.
Samuel Marble, who resigned a
week ago as president of the Delta
Junior College to become presi-
dent of the Saginaw Valley Sen-
for College, explains that he did SQ
to help get "what is sorely need-
ed for this area-a four-year de-
gree-granting institution."
Did Not Specify
He did not say when he would
try to meet with University offi-
cials but noted that "a good ma-
jority of residents" in the thumb
(Midland-Saginaw-Bay counties)
area favor the establishment of a
University branch there.
University officials have express-
ed renewed interest in establish-
ing a branch in the tri-county
area, but do not want to enter in-
to this controversial issue around
appropriations time.":
The University was unsuccess-
ful last year in receiving Legis-
lature endorsement for the open-
ing of a two-year, branch. The
question was then shipped to the
"blue ribbon" group at the request
of Gov. Romney.
Marble indicated that if the
"blue ribbon report is 'encourag-
ing,' we will try to chart plans
with the University for a four-
year school."
Such an arrangement, though
legally difficult to work out, wuld
make the college eligible for state
funds under Regental control.
If the committee does not show
favor toward University participa-
tion, the Saginaw College prob-
ably will still plan for expansion.
But it would then apply to the
state for direct funds, instead of
asking for funds chaneled to it
as a University extension, he said.
State legislators concurred with
Marble in waitine- for ond frnm
