President's Welco me
I extend a most cordial welcome to all students who are
beginning their first period of study at the University.
Detlev Bronk, an alumnus of this University, former Presi-"
dent of Johns Hopkins University, and now President of the
Rockefeller Institute, when he addressed a special convocation
in Ann Arbor on January 29, 1960, said:
. "As I came out from Detroit a few hours ago, I
kept thinking to myself, why is it that I have -such a
warmth for Ann Arbor and the University? I'recalled
- then the words of Frank - Abrams when he was speaking -
at Oberlin a few years ago, 'This is America as. we want
it.' Why is Ann Arbor America America as I want 'it?
Because it's a community of reasonable people and "a
community of intellectual people who are willing to
make the hard choice between the important and the
unimportant. It is a community of people devotedto the
better and deeper understanding of man so that we can
build a more worthwhile life for the future of our chil-
My wish to you who are now joining the University is that
you make "the hard choice between the important and the
unimportant." In making the decision, may you gain the sat-
isfaction of our distinguished alumnnus, including the' love of
his Alma Mater.

gineering, business administration
and liberal arts." Stirton said that
the liberal arts program was in-
cluded because the University did
not want a technical school alone.
It was decided to butress the lib-
eral arts program with teacher
Total enrollment for the center
was planned to eventually reach
2,700 students, divided equally be-
tween each of the component de-
partments. Instruction is limited to
the junior, senior, and graduate
levels only. This plan is designed
to encourage community college
Build Center

Although it was expected that
most of the student body would be
graduates of community colleges,
Stirton said that enrollment also
comes from four year schools.
There are no residence halls on
the campus now. "Most of the stu-
dents are commuting or .are liv-
ing in rooming houses around
Dearborn," Stirton said.
It will be at least five to six
years before new buildings will be
necessary Stirton indicated. "We
planned enough for the future."
The graduate program is in-
creasing in importance he said.
As an example of the programs
carried out at the Center, "two
of the big auto companies are
going into unified body construc-
tion. This involves resistance
welding and new metallurgy. En-
gineers are needed for this. These
companies want their present en-
gineers trained for the new de-
