Higham, Frankena
To View Scholarship

r. ....


Two University faculty members
re participating in a project to
valuate humanistic scholarship in
his country.
Prof. John Higham, of the his-
ory department described the pro-
ect, sponsored by the Ford Foun-
ation, as an attempt to analyze
ae position of humanistic scholar-
hip. The scholars involved will

cholarship has contributed, as a
'hole, to the intellectual life of
Prof. Higham ascribed the in-
eption of the project to the ef-
)rts of Michael Oates of Prince-
n University. He persuaded the
ord Foundation to contribute a
zeable amount of money to fi-

Recruited Scholars
The director of the project,
Richard Schlatter, professor of
history at Rutgers University, re-
cruited outstanding scholars from
several fields of humanistic study.
The areas selected, somewhat ar-
bitrarily, are art, history, litera-
ture, philosophy, religion, Asian
studies, classics and linguistics.
Prof. Higham and Prof. William
Frankena, head of the philosophy
department, were the two scholars
chosen from the University to
participate in the project.
. Collection of Essays
An immediate by-product of
Prof. Higham's participation is a
collection of essays on important
topics in American history. The
book, The Reconstruction of
American History, will be released
in March by Harper Torchbooks.
The end-product of this re-
search will be a book in which
Prof. Higham will try to analyze
the "nature of the historical pro-
fession and the various theories of
history from a bird's-eye view."
Essays of a more concrete nature
on American history will be in-
cluded in the latter part of the

Nathan Sees
A fganistan
Working as an economic adviser
to Afghanistan is "complicated,
challenging and rewarding," con-
sulting economist Robert R. Nath-
an said Wednesday night.
Nathan worked with the United
States government during World
War II, and aided in America's
post-war conversion period. An
authority on the economics of sev-
eral nations, he spoke on "Afghan-
istan's Economic Problems and
Development Prospects."
Recent Progress
"Material progress passed Af-
ghanistan by until relatively re-
cently," Nathan said. It was a na-
tion of "dirt roads and camel
trails," with no railroads or wa-
ter transportation and no modern
sources of cheap power.
Today, however, there are over
200 miles of surfaced roads where
there were none six years ago. A
new five-year plan which Nathan
is helping to mold will guide the
economic life of the nation. Nath-
an predicts moderate gains if the
program is administered "wisely
and realistically."
Need Aid
The new plan will require a good
deal of aid from other nations.
America's aid program to Afghan-,
istan in the past "has been some-,
what less than desirable," Nathan
"The key determinant in the
economic development of a nation
rests in the people," he sad.1
Among the people and the govern-
ment of Afghanistan "one encoun-
ters a vigorous determination to
bring up the country's standard of
living and development."
Student Group
May Propose
New Courses
Recognizing a need for a definedi
student mechanism for, makingi
suggestions on curriculum, theI
Literary College Steering Commit-
tee is considering acting as a
liason between students and thet
faculty curriculum , committee.
At yesterday's meeting, commit-
tee member Brian Glick, '62, said
that many students have definite
ideas on courses they'd like to see
the University offer or changes
in existing courses. The Steering
Committee could become a clear-
ing house for these ideas, the
group felt.
Tentatively,dit is hoped that in-
dividual students will submit pro-r
posals for consideration. Ther
steering committee plans to rec-
ommend more inter-disciplinary1
Ruth Galanter, '63, chairman,i
said that often students are aware1
of gaps in course offerings, butt
don't know how to go about mak-a
ing suggestions. Committee actiont
could alleviate this problem. t
The Steering Committee holds
weekly meetings, the purpose ofP
which is to provide student-ad-1
ministrative contact and to aid inv
the direction of the college in ann
advisory capacity.f

Under the auspices of the
French government a double bill
of modern French drama will be
presented at 8 p.m. tonight in
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
"Huis-Clos" by Jean-Paul Sar-
tre and "La Cantatrice Chauve"
an anti-play by Eugene Ionesco
will be produced by Jean
de Rigault with the Treteau de
Paris Theatre Company in French.
The plot of "No Exit" by Sar-
tre concerns three main characters,
a coward, a murderess, and a les-
bian, who are dead and find them-
selves in Hell. Each one of the
characters comes to be judged by
the others not for what he or she
tried to do or hoped to become,
but for what he in fact did and
was. As the story unfolds, the
natural hell of human relations
becomes a moral Hell where they
are punished.
The final Hell comes about with
the realization that they will al-
ways be together and with the
man's ironical "Well, let's carry
on then."
"The Bald Soprano" is a play
in which the author has tried to

FEAST FOR THE EYES-A colorful display of 2,000 new paper-
back books is on exhibit at the Undergraduate Library. The books,
presented to the University by the American Book Publishers
Council, will be catalogued into an Honor Loan Collection for
use by students and faculty after the paperback conference.
Editors Discuss Progress
At Paperback conference

"It was originally suggested that
something be done about exhibit-
ing paperback books and this idea
was developed into a conference
and display," Frederick Wagman,
director of the pniversity Library,
explained at the recent conference
on "The Paperback in Education."
A discussion of the history of
the paperback was led by Pyke
Johnson, Jr., editor-in-chief of
Anchor Books. The theme of John-
son's talk was "The' Paperback
Industry." He covered the evolu-
tion of paperbacks from the colon-
ial period through the dime novels
and up to the modern paperback
New Paperback Club
Johnson announced that a new
paperback book club, directed at
adult readers will be offered for
the first time by "Time."
Speaking after Johnson, Joseph
Mersand, Editor of "Studies in the
Mass Media," discused "The
Paperback in High School."
"The Paperback in High School
Science Studies" was the theme of
the next speech, given by Ralph
A. Brown, of the New York State

University College of Education,
Cortland, N. Y.
Hilary J. Deason, Director,
Science Library Program, Ameri-
can Association for the Advance-
ment of Science, gave the final
speech of the morning on "The
Paperback in High School Science
Few Descriptive Lists
The speakers pointed out that
it is very difficult to know just
exactly what is available in paper
back editions. There are few de-
scriptive lists of paperbacks avail-
able and very little is being done
about reviewing them.
The advantages of using paper-
backs to supplement students'
texts and to stimulate students'
interest in reading and acquiring
their own libraries were brought
out in the speeches.
The speakers all expressed a
belief that the paper back will be
used more and more in the schools
of; the future.

'U' Swimmer
Admits Theft
Of Collection
'Steven D. Thrasher, '63BAd, a'
member of the University swim-
ming team, has admitted stealing
a $20,000 collection of rare coins
15 months ago, according to police.'
He has been accused of breaking
into the Ann Arbor home of Dr.
F. Bruce Fralick, chairman of
the department of opthalmology
at the University Medical Hospi-
tal Nov. 15, 1960, and stealing
the coins.
Thrasher was arrested after an
Ann Arbor police detective traced
him through a trade journal ad-
vertisement in which he, offered
nearly $4,000 worth of the coins
for sale. Hie is recognized as an
authority on rarecoins, a child-
hood hobby, that grew into. his own
business under the name Arbor-
land Coin Co.
A police detective said that the
student visited the Fralick home
several times in 1960 to inspect the
coin collection. It is charged that
he returned to the home on Nov.
15, 1960, and when he found no
one at home he crawled through
a window and stole the coin col-

Rock Hudson and Doris
Day Are Co-Starred
IF you thought "Pillow Talk" was
a "sleeper" when it popped up
in 1959 as a comedy hit uniting
Rock Hudson and Doris Day, wait
till you see their latest, "Lover
Come Back," which came like a
freshet of fluent fun and fancy
into the Music Hall yesterday.
"Pillow Talk" was but a warm-up
for this springy and spirited sur-
prise, which is one of the brightest,
most delightful and satiric come-
dies since "It Happened One
That may sound like a pretty
tall order for a picture that can-
didly contains other echoes from
that previous picture, not just Mr.
Hudson and Miss Day. One of
these is Stanley Shapiro, who
helped to write "Pillow Talk." He
also helped to write this one (and,
furthermore, co-produced). The
fact that he is repeating as script
writer for the same stars is no
cause for sneers or suspicions. Mr.
S is a wizard with words.
Furthermore, Tony Randall,
who was a big asset in that pre-
vious film is an even bigger one-'
indeed, a characterof major com-
ic consequence-in this.
But don't let the seeming ap-
pearance of a hackneyed attempt
at a repeat cause you to give it the
go-by, for Mr. Shapiro and Paul
Henning have contributed a script
that has some of the sharpest and
funniest situations you could wish
and some of the fastest, wittiest
dialogue that has spewed out of a
comedy in years.
There is no use in trying to tell
