In the Jack Ruby murder trial,
Melvin Belli, Ruby's former chief

- Reveals Gift
a University President Harlan

, the gift only three days after the
Regents had accepted a Flint in-
vitation to work jointly in es-
tablishing a four-year college
Like that joint venture, the new
hospital will also establish life-
lines into the Flint community
through work with the Mott Foun-
dation's Children's Health Center
of Flint. Tentative plans call for
the exchange of doctors and den-
tists ,and the undertaking of re-
search projects, Mott said.
For the University, the gift was
a capital outlay bonus. Combined
with the Legislature's expected
pledge to start the $10 million
Medical Science Building Unit II,
the Mott building will mark the
fulfillment of the University's "top
priority" medical items.
Asked Legislature
The University had asked the
Legislature for the first instail-
ment on a multimillion dollar
children's hospital this year. Al-
though officials had "hopes" for
a grant from the Mott Founda-
tion, "we just couldn't be sure of

director of the University Hospital

Discuss British Schools

Acting Editor
One of the more influential
men in British higher educa-
tion yesterday took time out
from a four-day visit here to
compare the British and Amer-
ican university systems.
Sir Eric Ashby, mister of
Cambridge's Clare College, de-
clared that British education is
changing rapidly. "We are
turning over to your pattern,"
he said. "Within 20 years the
job should be complete.
"The United States system
of higher education is gauged
to admission pressures. Your
colleges and universities can
accommodate everyone who is
qualified, everyone with a high
school degree."
One in Four
Terming the British system
"elitist," Sir Eric explained that
currently, only one in four of
qualified British, high school
graduates are able to get a uni-
versity education.
"This has been our great mis-
take," he commented. "We
must adapt so that we' can
provide a wider range of edu-
cational programs."
Sir Eric provided. two rea-
sons for the smaller number of
college-educated Britons:

"They provide a very good edu-
cation to a very few people
and the student is completely
"We don't have to worry
about enormous numbers and
we have . very few dropout
problems." British universities
don't run any higher than 5000
students, while 97 out, of every
100 graduate at a school like
."As we broaden our system
we're going to have to go to
bigger universities," Ashby said.
"The plans now are to keep
them small, but I don't think
we'll have any choice."
Nigerian Education
Sir Eric has served on a nine-
man commission to blueprint
plans for Nigerian higher edu-
cation, and he had a number
of comments to make in this
"There were absolutely no,
universities in Africa south of
the Sahara after World War
II. Since that time the British'
have simply exported their own
system much as they export
motor cars."
The problem, in his opinion,
is one of adapting the -British
system to African needs.
"Europe has exported three
of its Middle-Age institutions

500 colleges while Britain has

know. That makes a bit of a
--American colleges and uni-
versities are markedly differ-
ent in quality and purposes to
accommodate different types
of students. British institutions
are all of the same quality.
"Our colleges have their ad-
vantages," Sir Eric added.

was elected president of the In-
ternational Student Association
yesterday according to unofficial
Also elected were Mary Van de
Water, '65, executive vice-presi-
dent, and James Jones, '65, ad-
ministrative vice-president, both
students from the United States.
Chen defeated Iraj Mahdavi, '65,
of Iran, and will replace outgoing
president Isaac Adelemo,.'64. of
Nigeria. Miss Van de Water and
Jones both ran unopposed. They
will replace Mehdi Sarram, '65E,
of Iran, who holds the single of-'
fice of vice-president.
Unofficial Tabulation
According to Adelemo, the elec-
tion results are based upon an
unofficial tabulation of the ballots
made yesterday by the ISA secre-
tary. The official election results
will be announced this afternoon.
The ISA voters also approved a
new constitution for the body
which provides for the additional
vice-presidential post and gives the
officers a greater area of freedom,
in managing the association's ac-
Chen cited several immediate
objectives of ISA. "We are trying
to expand the activities of our
group, especially through the cam-
pus housing units, so that Ameri-
can students and foreign students
can get to know each other better:,
he' said.
Besides presiding over his rown
organization, the president of iSA
sits on Student Government Coun-
cil as an ex-officio member.

materials in an effort to ease the atomic arms race. Great

President Lyndon B. Johnson first revealed the plan to.Ar

Council not join the new organiza-
Shekry Miller, '65, the other
observor sent by SGC, is reported
to have some reservations about
the organization, but could not be
reached for comment last night.
Miss Norton said last night that
the conference was not well or-
ganized and often flouted Robert's
Rules of Order. It got into severe.
parliamentary tangles and no one
seemed to have a good conception
of what organization of a national
student's association entails.
Effective Government
The purpose of ASGUSA as set
forth in its constitution is to de-
velop more effective student gov-
ernments through exchange of
ideas between schools. In line with
this policy it intends to remain an
apolitical organization.
An interim constitution was ap-
proved at the weekend conference
A meeting will be held during 1964

Thanksgiving vacation to vote in
the permanent constitution and
begin the work of the new organ-
A clause in the constitution pro-
hibits schools which have not ap-
proved the present constitution
from voting at that meeting al-
though they may approve of the
purposes of the organization.
Miss Norton noted that the tone
of the conference was anti-
National Students Association. The
three schools which originally or-
ganized the conference pulled out
of NSA in 1960 when that organ-,
ization began supporting the civil
rights movement. However, Miss
Norton does not think that the
new group will pose a serious
threat to NSA.
"They seem to want to remain
a clearing house for information.
Such a function is handled by one'
branch of NSA, the Student Gov-
ernment Information Service. '

improving mutual understanding
with other states of the necessity
of avoiding a nuclear war."
No Deal
Washington sources described
the nuclear cutback as a com-
pletely separate but parallel ac-
tion on the part of the world's two
foremost atomic powers. No deal
was involved, these sources added.
Johnson told the publishers and
their guests:
"I have ordered a further sub-j
stantial reduction in our produc-
tion of enriched uranium, to be
carried out over a four-year per-
iod. When added to previous re-
ductions, this will mean an over-
all decrease in the production of
plutonium by 20 per cent, and of
enriched uranium by 40 per cent.
"By bringing production in line
with need, we reduce tensions

Douglas-Home will make his

Harrison Discusses Shakespeare 's Henry

"Thus far, with rought and
all-unable pen,
Our bending author hath
pursu'd the story;
In little room confining
mighty men,
Mangling by starts the full
course of their glory."
This is what Shakespeare has
said about the composition of
"King Henry V," the chronicle
play, which is, according to Prof.
G. B. Harrison of the English de-
partment, a revolution of the art
behind a Shakespearean play.
"King Henry V" is well worth
studying, for as it is not one of
Shakespeare's greatest plays, it
doesn't successfully mask the work
behind the completed product,

ten chronologically. By the time
Shakespeare reached "King Henry
V" he was at his full stature as
a playwright and showed no signs
of the beginner..
Not To Preach
In addition, he was not as anx-
ious to preach to constrict the
history play to its traditional
He did however reflect the
then current political situation in
the play by way of topical allu-
sions. These allusions are of two
types: those to the politics of
Henry IV and his son, and those
to the theories of Machiavelli and
the contemporary war of the
In writing "King Henry V,"
Shakespeare was on the defensive.

"In order to follow through he
reverted to the older kind of high
rhetoric with overpowering and
majestic speeches. The chorus,
not merely a presenter of facts,
is - with the exception of the
King- the most important char-
acter in the play.
"The theme of the play reflects
kingship in action in the person
of Henry V who has been called
Shakespeare's ideal king.'
"The overwhelming responsi-
bility of the efficient king as well
as the loneliness of kingship is
stressed throughout the play.
"It may be true that Henry the
V is Shakespeare's ideal king but
the efficient king is hardly a good
companion and he can have no
