In Anticipating Future Enrollments
Beginning next fall, the $50 enrollment deposit required of all

Cut Courses
In Reading
A tight University budget has
forced severe cutbacks this semes-
ter in two department's special
reading courses in languages for
graduate students.
The German department slash-
ed to half the number of sections
planned for courses 111 and 112,
nearly doubled the size of the sec-
tions finally offered, and still had
to turn away more than 200 stu-
Similar reductions came in the

completely and half the sections
of 111 were scrapped.,
Graduate Study
These special int'roductory read-
ing courses are designed to ful-
fill 'the requirements of the grad-
uate school, which demands read-
ing knowledge of two foreign lan-
guages before granting doctorate
degrees. The cutbacks will last at
least through the spring semester.
"Dropping the sections of these
oourses was a regrettable necessi-
ty, Prof. James rC. O'Neill, chair-
man of the domance languages
department, said yesterday. "We
had to make cuts on our lowest
priority items.".
Prof. O'Neill and Prof. Clarence
K. Pott, chairman of the German
department, explained that "pri-
orities" were set up last spring
when administrative officers asked
them to, examine their depart-
ments with an eye towards possi-
ble cuts.
Behind Other Courses
Both men said their depart-
nents' evaluations put these "serv-
ice courses" behind the basic
courses (101, 102, 231, 232), up-
perclass concentrate courses, and
offerings for graduate students in
these areas.
Harald Scholler, who supervises
German 111 and 112, said that 39
students were allowed in sections
normally limited to 20 with the
result that "drastic changes"
would have to come in the teach-
ing methods.
This will include abridging the
exercises used in 111 so that in-
structors will have time enough to
correct them and the possible in-
troduction of teaching machines
to offset the burden of extra stu-
dents, Prof. Pott said.

red this year, when enrollmentj
went up 800 students due to an
unpredicted low rate of drop-outs

Vice-President for Student Af-

have not yet been worked out. It
is a change made by the Deans'
Conference in the method of re-
funding the deposit.
The original approval of the
deposit idea was approved by the
Regents in 1958, but they did not
specify the details of the plan,
leaving this to the administration.
The new policy needed no formal
action by the Regents, but they
have been informed of the
With the creation of this new
deposit plan, the Board of Gov-
ernors will receive recommenda-
tiois to abolish their housing de-
posit of $50 which had been re-,
quired, Lewis reported.
The enrollment deposit will still
not be refunded to the student if
he accepts admission at the Uni-
versity and then does not come.
It will also be held if he does
not notify the University of his
intention 'not to return for the
next semester soon' after the end
of the previous'semester.
This will give the University a
much more accurate count of stu-
dents coming back each fall so
that it can plan its program.
It would be refunded if the stu-
dent was dropping out because he
had received academic warning or
was dropped for academic or oth-
er reasons.
It would also be refunded if the
student were drafted and could
not return to the University, offi-
cials said.
Fire Hurts

Fire broke out in a fifth floor
Alice Lloyd room last night, caus-

The fire department attribut-

were no injuries. -
Estimated damage to the room
amounted to about $450, Leonard
A. Schaadt, residence hall busi-

The two residents of the room

surance for damages done to their

UAW Strike
Hits Ford.
DETROIT (') -- The United
Auto Workers struck and shut
down the Ford Motor Co. empire
yesterday for the first time since
Henry Ford suddenly granted the
union recognition 20 years ago.
The strike of 120,000 hourly
production workers came after 96
days of negotiation failed to bring
agreement on a national contract.
Leaves Talks
UAW President Waler P.
Reuther emerged from a final
25-hour marathon session at 10
a.m., the strike deadline, and an-
nounced the walkout. Actually
workers had begun leaving their
jobs at the giant Rouge plant in
Dearborn and elsewhere shortly
after 8 a.m.
"The international union did
everything possible to avert this
strike," Reuther declared, blam-
ing the company for stalling to a
point where a walkout was in-
"This strike is entirely unneces-
sary," said Malcolm L. Denise,
Ford's Vice-President of Labor
Relations and the top manage-
ment negotiator.
Try for Settlement
Both sides promised to try for
a quick settlement. But no one
speculated on when it might come.
Talks were recessed until 10 a.m.
"I'm eternally optimistic," Den-
ise maintained. But he added: "the
issues on which we are apart are
of great importance. Based on
outward appearance we have a
considerable distrance between

Vos Takes Petition
For SGC Election
John Vos, '63,, recent appointee
to a Student Government Council
vacancy, has taken out a petition
for candidacy in the November
SGC elections.

William Gleason, '63, will move
at tonight's Student Government
Council meeting to rescind last
week's decision on calendaring for
this semester's performance of the
Gilbert and Sullivan Society.
The motion passed last week al-
lowed G&S to present its show,
"H.M.S. Pinafore" Wednesday-
Friday, Dec. 6-8 with a matinee
performance Saturday, Dec. 9 and
permission to give two shows Fri-
day night, Dec. 8.
Allow Show
The new move is intended to
allow G&S to hold a Saturday
evening performance with a closed
ticket sale, Gleason reported. If
his motion passes, he would then
move to re-calendar the show with
this provision.
G&S had originally requested
calendaring for Saturday evening
To Oust AAU
Gains Support
The National Collegiate Athletic
Association's attempted ouster of
the Amateur Athletic Union, orig-
inally backed only by track and
basketball coaches, has now ire-
ceived support from such sports
as swimming, wrestling, gymnas-
tics and judo, The Daily learned
NCAA officials, long disgruntled
by the notorious mismanagement
of American sports by the AAU,
called a secret meeting in Chicago
last Sunday for all groups in-
terested in setting up federations
for~ each individual sport, reliable
sources reported yesterday.
Only One
"This is the only country where
each sport is not controlled by a
federation," complained one of-
ficial, adding that the all-powerful
AAU is not equipped to handle all
sports efficiently.
NCAA President Walter Byers,
along with UCLA Athletic Direc-
tor Wilbur Johns and Far West
Conference Commissioner Tom
Tamilton, explained a proposition'
which would set up various groups
within each sport's federation for
high schools, colleges, the armed
forces, the Young Men's Christian
Association and the AAU.
It is expected, however, that the
AAU will refuse to surrender its
power to accept a subordinate role.
NCAA Power
"A good parallel is that the
NCAA gives the power to run the
different sports in this country-
to the people in those sports who
know how to run them. As it is
now, the NCAA has nothing to say
about AAU meets."
