Settle Stalemate
Board Accepts Recommendations;
Groups Recognize Interdependence
An 18-month stalemate over the relationship between the Alumni
Association and the Development Council ended yesterday when the
association's Board of Directors approved the major recommendations
of a University committee.
The end of the conflict clears the way for stronger cooperation
between the two groups in raising funds for the University from
alumni. The Development Council Executive Committee approved
substantial parts of the University committee's report Thursday.
Director of University Relations Michael Radock, a member of the
University committee, said "both groups now recognize that they have
< everything to gain by cooperating.

Hart said Friday that many of
Michigan's agencies did not avail
themselves of federal money. and
he specifically noted that Michi-
gan has 23 colleges utilizing $35
million in college housing loans,
while Ohio has 76 colleges using
$76 million.
The senator did not expand on
his statistics, but Pierpont attrib-
uted the larger sum to the fact
that "Ohio has many more colleges
than Michigan does."
He also noted that Hart's own
figures work out to only $1 million
per college in Ohio, .and "more
than that for Michigan.
More Per College
"And based on the average," he
said, "we've got more per college,

Pierpoint cited the use of fed-

it should have a part in raising,
funds from alumni. Founded in

had never before wanted to do

In 1954, the University formed
the Development Council to raise
funds year-round from private
sources. The conflict which devel-
oped with the Alumni, Association
was mainly over the questions of
how much control the association
should have over alumni fund-
raising policy and how some of the
alumni funds should be distributed
to the association.
The University committee's re-
port, approved yesterday by the
association, provides that the De-
velopment Council has complete
authority over alumni fund-rais-
ing for the University. The associ-
ation also agrees with the com-

of its support come from alumni
funds rather than the present

of course most anyone will an-

Kirk viewed Republican pros-
pects for '62 as "very good. The
conservative drift is mounting
everyday. As yet, however, it just
isn't coherent."

for the GOP to concentrate on:

He noted that neutral govern-
ments are particularly susceptible'
to Communism.
Kirk also said that the GOP
should capitalize on the United
Nations and foreign aid issues.1
"Republicans have let these go
to the Democrats by default."
He also predicted that the
Democrats could lose as many as
100 seats in the Senate and HouseI
of Representatives over the issue
of federal aid to education.
This is coming back to haunt1
the Democrats," he said. "And the
Republicans should make the most

DEFENSE PSYCHOLOGY-Profs. Stephen B. Withey, moderator
Ross Stagner and J. David Singer analyze the relationship between
psychology and civil defense at a symposium held in conjunction
with the 66th annual meeting of the Michigan Academy of Arts,

A panel discussion explored the psychological aspects of civil
defense at the close of the 66th annual meeting yesterday of the
Michigan Academy of Science Arts and Letters.
"An extensive study of those who have built fallout shelters
found that these persons are significantly more authoritarian and'
unegalitarian than those who have not," commented Prof. Stephen
B. Withey of the psychology department.
The study found that about 0.5 per cent of Americans have built
shelters, and about 6 per cent plan to do so. Of the remaining. 94

He explained that students are
more concerned with political ac-
tion than educational change be-
cause "this is an age of ideology.
There is a tendency in the popu-
lar press to politicalize every-
thing and students are impressed
with this."
He added that it is easier to
think about political topics than
aspects of higher education.
Viewing the role of the student
in educational change Kirk said
that the student's most direct role
is in "serious study" but that they
could help to bring pressure on
administrators for changes in
standards. "We are seeing more
of that going on now than be-
"Students should also try to get
their parents to put pressure on
school administrators and state
representatives for educational
change. Unfortunately, because
many of them have never been to

"Trends and Issues in Higher Education," were viewed by Russell
Kirk, editor of "Modern Age" and educational columnist for the
National Review, and Prof. Algo Henderson, director of the Univer-
sity's center for the study of higher education at the Challenge
program yesterday.
Prof. Henderson broke the topic down into five areas. These
were: who should be educated, the nature of a program, the financial
question, faculty and basic philosophy.
He noted that various commissions had found "a surge of demand

When Student Leaves
City Editor
If you're an undergraduate who
plans to return to the University
in September, you'll have to pay
a $50 enrollment deposit by May
3 at the latest.
This deposit must be maintained
for all undergraduates in residence
at the University. It will be re-
funded upon dropping out, if pro-
per notification is given.
The policy was announced yes-
terday by the Office of Student
Affairs. The basic purpose is to
give the University more control
over its enrollment totals.
Affects Undergraduates
Previously, it had been announc-
ed that the deposit policy would
apply to all entering freshmen and
transfey students. But all enrolled
undergraduates will be affected
beginning next September.
Since entering students will now
be paying the deposit automati-
cally, only one special collection
will be necessary.
The $50 enrollment deposit will
also take the place of the similar
deposit now required of all stu-
dents living in University residence
Two Ways To Pay
There are two ways to pay t:
1) If an enrolled student al-
ready has paid the $50 housing
deposit, this will be automatically
transferred into the enrollment
deposit fund. The student won't
have to do a thing.
2) All other continuing under-
graduates must pay the $50 to
the University, following an al-
phabetical schedule of deadlines
stretching between April 9 and
May 3.
Newly admitted students and
students returning to the Univer-
sity after an absence of one or
more semesters, must pay in ad-
vance, a non-refundable $50 de-
posit upon admission to the Uni-
versity. When they actually enroll,

posit now.
The new, broad deposit policy
represents the latest step in an
evolutionary process which began
in 1959. At that time, entering
students were required to pay 'a
$50 dollar deposit upon admission.
The money was either applied to
their tuition, if they actually en-
rolled, or forfeited if they did not
appear in Ann Arbor as planned.
This enabled the University to
keep close track of the size of
the entering class.
The policy worked so well that
last fall, after enrollment un-
expectedly expanded by 800 stu-
dents, the Deans' Conference de-
cided to make the deposit con-

His name was James Burrill

President Frieze himself. The
concensus was that, should An-

the University, President Frieze
would be the happiest of all.
And President Frieze himself
confirmed that. He personally

of the 66th annual meeting of the
Michigan Academy of Science,
Arts and Letters.
Stephen K. ,Nisbet, president of
the convention, commented that
the new constitution must satisfy
diverse groups, and this has caused
many problems. "With 44 dele-
gates from vastly different areas
and interests it is necessary that
all open up their minds to broader
fields," he continued.
Nisbet added that delegates who

that a salary consideration for
President Frieze, who sorely de-
served a raise, might influence
his decision. President Frieze
got his raise, and the Regents
got a new president.
