Degree Pa
The education office of the De-'
partment of Health, Edgcation
and Welfare recently published a
booklet on an integrated liberal-
arts engineering degree program
that allows a student to receive
two degrees in five years.
The University initiated such
a program with Albion College in
1915 and has expanded sits pro-
gram to include Alma College,
Calvin College, Central Michigan
Uniiversity, Emmanuel Missionary
College, Kalamazoo College and
Eastern Michigan University.
The plan allows a B average or.
better student to complete three
years of liberal arts study' at. any
of these schools and then to com-
plete the last two yeats of the
engineering curriculim and re
ceive both a BA, from the first
school and an engineering de-
gree from this University.,
The number of students parti-
cipating in this. plan has decreased
in the last few yearseas the
amount of liberal arts courses
allowed and required in the en-
gineering curricula has increased,
the booklet noted.
Many of the benefits of the
plan remain, according to the
booklet, in spite of the increased
liberal arts allotment. The plan
"permits the student to receive
liberal and technical education at
a relatively low cost at a college
nearer to his home than the en-
gineering college from which he
hopes to graduate," it said.
In addition, the schools may
diversify. the background of the
student body and fill out the drop.

fers. Michigan is one of the 551

Law School To Report,
On Fund Raising Plans

Seeking to provide the "extras
of excellence" for the law school,
the Law School Fund will report
its money raising plans to the
Development Council meeting here
this weekend.
While working with the Univer-
sity Alumni Fund, the Law School
Fund intends to raise money from
law school alumni for six projects
not covered by appropriations and
endowment funds.
The group hopes to raise money
to supplement present SebOw.
ships, especially the Centennial
Gift, raised two years ago for
financial aid.
"Our goal is to assure every
qualified student that he need
not forgo legal education for fi-
nancial reasons. Loan and scholar-'
{ ship funds for outstanding schol-
ars must be increased," Dean Al-
len Smith of the law. school said.
Legal Research
To assure continued legal re-
search by a growing faculty the
fund seeks, additional money to
supplement the William W. Cook
Endowment for Legal Research.
The fund also hopes to provide
research facilities for the law li-
brary above and beyond those
maintained by state appropria-
In addition the group plans to
use part of its resources to ex-

pand and improve the graduate
law program of the school.
Miscellaneous Activities
Proceeds from the fund will be
used to finance miscellaneous ac-
tivities of the school such as send-
ing law students to national mock
court competitions.
To take advantage of legal
teaching talent in various fields,
the group would provide aid in
bringing outstanding professors to
the law school to teach their
specialties here for either a se-
mester or a year.
The fund, which has not set
any definite ceiling on income,
will work closely with the Develop-
ment Council. All proceeds and
gifts will be deposited in the
University Alumni Fund and then
be given to the law school.
Late October
A drive to build the fund, set
for late October, will concentrate
on law school alumni who have
not contributed to the school or
to other units of the University,
Smith said.
No priority for any one of the
projects has been set, he noted.
The proceeds from the drive will
be divided between the various
projects as needed.
"The fund is not approaching
the alumni as a substitute for
state appropriations," Smith com-
The fund is in the process of
organizing its national structure.
State and local chairmen are now
being selected for the October

l '
In Classics'
"The specific quality defining
'classical' music isi not determined
by investigation of form, but de-
pends upon the expression of hu-
man feelings in musical lan-
guage," said Prof. Denes Bartha
of the Budapest Academy of Mu-
sic at Lane. Hall auditorium yes-
Discussing "Vocal and Instru-
mental Elements in the Classical
Style," Bartha defined the strict-
ly classical composers as Haydn,
Mozart, and Beethoven.
Musicology textbooks often de-
fine classical style in terms of
form, such as the sonata. But "the
classical composers rarely, used
formal terms to describe their
works," he said. "The typical ex-
pressive character of classical
works originated in contemporary
vocal works, operatic themes and
popular and folk songs. Accord-:
ing to 18th century composers, all
music must 'sing'."
Influences Style
Haydn himself spent twenty
years conducting opera, which
certainly influenced his style.
Playing themes of Mozart and
Haydn on the piano, Bartha dem-
onstrated nearly identical melodic
patterns basic to the works.
Many of these common themes
could be traced to old Italian
operas and "the banal melodies
of street tunes and country dances
especially in Haydn's late quar-
tets and symphonies," Bartha de-
Such common thematic patterns
often have strong symbolic and
emotional feeling. - "Expressive
emotional ambiguity results from
the antithesis between major key
and minor key variations on the
same theme.
Same Pattern
.A melody in major key may
express love, while the same pat-
tern in a minor key may express
death. This antithesis is typical
of the classical style," he em-
However, the use of commbn
themes is not sufficient to define
classical music; the melodies must
be individualized and reshaped to
the composer's personal taste.
This is accomplished by "giv-
ing a characteristic contrast be-
tween the primary and secondary
themes in the same movement, or
by working variations within a
stated theme by means of a mas-
terly technique," Bartha said.

"The government is making
every effort to maximize commu-
nication between electronic re-
search groups," Prof. William G.
Dow, chairman of the electrical
engineering department, said.
When military men rather than
engineers make improper decisions
on issues of electronic research,
waste may result, he added.
The problem of research waste
was the main topic of a recent
Senate report by the Special Gov-
ernment Operations Subcommit-
tee, an Associated Press release
sakd. The report pinned the blame
on the poor facilities for exchange
of information among electronic
researchers provided by the gov-
The waste may add up to $200
million out of $2 billion currently
expended for this type of work
.per year, the report said.
Work Duplication
Prof. Dow believes this report
of waste is an exaggeration. Often
comments are made that there is
duplication of work that results
in waste, he said. In the research
area, what may appear as duplica-,
tion is often desirable because one
man may solve a problem where
another fails. Also duplication can
be beneficial in creating competi-
tion which stimulates imagina-
tion, he added.
"There is no reason to doubt
that space science has been slowed
by the absence to date of reli-
able, comprehensive systems for
centrally indexed, broadly and
promptly disseminated data on
current and completed research
and development contracts and
subcontracts," the report said.
Estimated Cost
The subcommittee estimated, it
might cost $6 million to provide
adequate facilities for easy lo-
cation of data to show whether
preliminary research had been
completed on a given problem.
"Such data exchange facilities
would be of great value, but no
mechanized data exchange process
can substitute for personal across
the table and conference-type in-
terchange between individual re-

each one well enough to write an
adequate recommendation without
them," he believes.
Chemistry faculty men do not
approve of the loyalty queries, but
include them on their evaluation
form because they are so common-
ly asked.
Prof. .Peek said all employers
are justifiably concerned about
the quality of the men who seek
jobs from them. "We, as teachers,
cannot just judge the mind of a
student, but must evaluate the
whole man. When I am asked to
comment on the competence of a
former student, so-called 'non-
academic' factors must come into
the picture like alertness, respon-
sibility and integrity."
The ACLU statement contained
similar language: "Questions re-
lating to what the student has
demonstrated as student-for ex-
ample, the ability to write in a
certain way, to solve problems of
a certain kind, to reason consis-
tently, to direct personnel or
projects-pose no threat to edu-
cational privacy."
