Propose Plans
For Project

Senior Board of 1962, believ-
ing that their class owes some-
thing to the University for four
years of education, will act to
make students aware of this re-
sponsibility, Paul Lurie, vice-pres-
ident of the Senior Board, said
The Board has laid the foun-
dation for a future Board which
will function effectively to assist
the senior class in contributing to
the University, Lurie noted.
The Board, traditionally com-
posed of the four officers of the
eight undergraduate schools, has
restructured itself to be more
tightly organized and to facilitate
delegation of responsibility.
Eight Schools
Next year's Board will be com-
posed of 16 people, who will be
the presidents and vice-presidents
of the eight schools. The tradi-
tional 32 man Board proved inef-
ficient and unneeded, Lurie com-
The Board handles details of
graduation such as selecting a
commencement speaker and host-
ing at graduation.
It functions as the official class
representative to the Alumni As-
sociation. The most important
function of the Board is the col-
lection of senior class dues, which
have so far amounted to $2,000,
and the selection of the class gift,
William Blanton, '62BAd, presi-
dent of the Board, said.

have been statues, plaques and the
like, Lurie commented.
"By giving an academic gift to
the University, the Board feels it
can help draw the attention of
the students to the financial needs
of the University," Lurie said.
Working Organization
"This year we have organized
the Board and outlined its func-
tions. We hope the future officers
will take the responsibility of
making it a working organization.
Next year the Board should hold
a Senior Night, for fund-raising,
and should have a more efficient
collection of dues," Lurie said.
Present Senior Board officers
are Blanton president; Lurie, vice-
president; Harry Dickinson, BAd,
treasurer; Gloria Shaheen, Ed.,
corresponding secretary; J e a n
Merkle N., recording secretary.

Plans are being formulated for
a proposed Ann Arbor community
foundation which would benefit
health, welfare, cultural, civic and
other areas of interest.
The idea originated with a study
committee of the Ann Arbor
United Fund.
According to organizing com-
mittee head, Jack D. Hogan,
money could be willed or given to
the foundation to be used for
parks, recreation, the community
center, or in any way which would
serve the community.
Although the University would
not be directly involved in such a
project, it could benefit possibly.
from scholarshipeor research gifts.
Members of the organizing com-
mittee, still being formed, include
qualified experienced representa-
tives of Ann Arbor's financial in-
stitutions, attorneys, representa-
tives of some family foundations
and representatives from the com-
munity at large.
Many other cities, including De-
troit, Cleveland and Kalamazoo,
have established successful com-
munity foundations and trusts,"
Hogan said.

To Greet McNamara
Secretary of Defense Robert Mc-
Namara, this year's commence-
ment speaker, will be greeted by
the president and vice-president
of the Board, Blanton noted.
"The, potential of the senior
class contributions to the Uni-
versity is great," Lurie said. This
year's gift-a publishing fund for
the Institute of Science and Tech-
nology--is the first academic con-
tribution of a senior class in the
past five years. In the past gifts
