By RONALD WILTON
University Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis,
Thomas Hayden, '61, former Daily
editor, and Michigan Union Presi-
dent Paul Carder, '62, viewed dif-
ferent aspects of student social
action at the Challenge program
Sunday afternoon.
Hayden started his speech by
examining the college and the base
from which student social action
is coming. "It is important to see
that extra-curricular life is not
unrelated to academics. The par-
ent child relationship is, also re-
flected in the dependency rela-
tionship betweenteacherandrstu-
dent.
"We have recognized the theory
that education can only come from
detachment and must be separat-
ed from man if it is to be under-
stood by man. This reinforces the
student away from life. I believe
we deceive ourselves when we say
that passions and preconceptions
do not influence our outlook to-
ward scholarship" he said.
'U' Apparatus
He characterized the apparatus
of the University as not only the
bureaucracy and the structure of
a university but also the organiza-
tion, culture and the way of life
of the people associated with it.
"Its rational function binds men
to certain specific interests, with
each role separating an individual
into a fraction of himself. Stu-
dents adapt to regulations and
to what the top people like. To

1

them things appear to happen
through drift and manipulation by
an unseen 'them'."
He saw among the "functional-
ism and safe buck attitude" a flar-
ing for a creative society of peo-
ple; but one which is flaring less
"Our concern must be with the
refinement of the moral capabili-
ties of men in a manner that cre-
ates genuine independence. I re-
ject the claims that only a priv-
ileged few can be independent; in
this day and age it must be a fact
about ordinary people."
American Hierarchy
He explained that the university
in America has become part of the
hierarchy of America rather than
an institution to make men free.
Carder explained that he was
not sure as to whether students
should' be more concerned with
books or peace. "I guess I am un-
dergoing the educational process
of questioning."
He added that he had seen dem-
onstrations and had "some fears
of these." He questioned the high-
ly emotional nature of demonstra-
tions and whether they did any
good. "I repudiate the charges that
they hurt us by dividing us. As a
democracy this is inherent in our
type of society."
Decision Making
He noted that other groups such
as labor unions have gained access
to the decision making structure.
"It would be a better thing for
students to try to develop this
means of access."
He expressed the belief that the
leaders of some groups had de-
teriorated and that the original
purity of things like sit-ins had
been subverted. "Students have
lost view of the ends and are con-
centrating on means unto them-
selves," he said.
Lewis gave an overview of stu-
dent social action. "We start with
the assumption that there is move-
ment in the area of student
groups."
Lawyer Notes,
Council Aims

He cited five important factors
in the growth of student social
action. These included the leader-
ship of the National Student As-
sociation, cultural pluralism and
interest in students all over the
world, the increasing number of
groups involved in the fight for
civil rights and liberties, the de-
veloping maturity of students and
a yearning on the part of stu-
dents to come together with the
faculty.
"I am not sure how I would
define the basic philosophy behind
American culture. Perhaps it is
idealistic materialism. These ex-
tremes carry over to the students
who are greatly concerned ideal-
istically about world and national
affairs, but materialistically are
being pushed into becoming part
of the manpower pool.
"There is also a strong feeling
that education is good but that
society should be careful in trust-
ing their colleges," he added.
