Student Government Council
heard from Ed Heiser, the health
insurance. coordinator and from
Gary Cunningham, '66, on parking
and driving regulations Wednes-
Heiser reported the results of a
study made on the current student
health.insurance policy. The pur-.
pose of the study was to discover
the reasons for fluctuation in poli-
cy rates and to explore the possi-
bilities of price changes in the fu-
Since the insurance program was
first put into effect at the Univer-
sity in 1951, the price of individ-
ual policies has risen fairly reg-
ularly each .year with the excep-
tion of one reduction in 1962.
concluded that the hike in policy
costs was necessary because of
the rising cost of medical care,
and will unavoidably continue to
rise in subsequent years.
The committee came to the con-
clusion that the rise was general
and not caused by unusually heavy
expenses in one area of medical
Heiser said there have been no
complaints either on the amount
of coverage provided by the pres-
ent policy or the service given by
the company. He concluded by rec-
ommending that SGC retain the
services of the American Casualty
Company for the coming year.
Cunningham reported on a re-
cent meeting of. the Driving and
Parking Committee, which governs
regulations concerning student
driving privileges. The, group is
composed of Dean Bingley, direc-
tor of student activities and or-
ganizations, a person appointed by
joint judiciary, the administra-
tive vice-president and treasurer
The committee discussed the
possibility of lowering the costof
E-stickers and of finding addi-
tional parking space for students.
The cost of E-stickers has been
kept high in hopes of collecting'
enough money to build a student
parking structure, Cunningham
said. However, funds are not ac-
cumulating fast enough to make
that method of raising them prac-
The committee hopes to lease
a floor of the faculty structure to
alleviate the problem of student
parking. The space in Ann Arbor
that has been used for parking
until now is to make way for new
buildings next year.
Bingley suggested the age lim-
it on driving be abolished and
let students make their own ar-

Cervantes was the "first modern
novelist and the book 'Don Qui-
xote' was the first modern novel."
So asserted Prof. Stephen Gil-
man of Harvard University in a
lecture here yesterday. He ex-
plained that the proof rests on
the acceptance of the present
definition of a novel.
"It must be a literary work of
aesthetic, historical, and authora-
tive implications which uses an
inventive combination of words
and presents a novelistic approach
to life," he said.
Prof. Gilman differentiated be-
tween "original creation and in-
vention." He claimed that "Don
Quixote" is a literary invention
in that it uniquely combines fic-
tion and verisimilitude and em-
ploys a loose "technical freedom"
which Was not present in other

hovels of his period. This freedom
is. both external in content and
internal in the integration of var-
ious classical forms.
This loose plan enabled Cer-
vantes to combine the tragic,
comic, epic and lyric literary
forms. The comic and tragic qual-
ities of the novel provide an al-
ternation of light and serious med-
iation, Prof. Gilman asserted. The
lyrical aspect permits the mastery
of dramatic characterization by
allowing each character to reveal
himself, he said.
"Don Quixote" is the first novel
of romance in Spain. Various
other forms of the light novel
were present in this period, but
Cervantes felt that a more literary
novel was needed; he accepted the
responsibility of providing liter-
Cervantes claimed that contem-
porary literature contributed to
the host of imitations which made
no effort to improve upon the
present novel. Prof. Gilman said
Cervantes attacks this in "Scrut-
iny of the Books" located in the
first part of "Don Quixote." This
portion was "simply a manifesto
of his further intentions."
Prof. Gilman also noted that in
order to understand Cervantes'
claim, we must understand the
period in which he lived. Spain's
transition in the 16th century
from medieval tradition to nation-
alism initiated literature as a na-
tional phenomenon. Thus Cer-
vantes' task was to perfect pres-
ent forms and to add a new level
of meaning to the word "novel."
Cervantes not only completed
his task but also proved there
must exist a two-way relationship
between author and reader.
Prof. Gilman questioned wheth-
er Cervantes was conscious of his
accomplishment. There is a por-
tion in the second part of "Don
Quixote" which gives evidence
Cervantes was aware, of his suc-
cess. However, Prof. Gilman ex-
pressed Cervantes' burlesque com-
ment that, "at best, 'Don Quixote'
would be a future textbook."
