I C Judic Opens
Public Hearings
Ask Change after Study of System;
No Revision Seen for Joint Judic
Inter-Quadrangle Judiciary has become the first judiciary body
in the University to open its hearings to the public at the request of
Inter-Quadrangle Council President Thomas Moch, '62E, an-
nounced the new policy at the IQC meeting last night.
The action came Monday on a motion by Judiciary Chairman
Harold H. Frazier, '64.
Asks Change
Frazier decided to ask for the change after studying the whole
judiciary system in preparation for a new IQC constitution.

A motion asking that Panhellenic
Association adopt no policy con-
cerning the granting of automatic
apartment permission to senior
women was tabled at the Presi-
dent's Council yesterday.
The postponement of voting-
designed to give Panhellenic mem-
bers time for more careful con-
sideration of the issue-resulted
after a 40-minute discussion of
the problems which would arise if
a statement of policy were released
forbidding sorority women the
right to live in apartments.
"A survey of the opinions of
sorority women on such a policy
was taken by Panhellenic last
month. While there were a good
number of dissenting votes, a large
number of them must be qualified.

Council President Thomas Moch,
'62E, reported on the last board,

During the member's time, Ray
Ceriotti, '63, South Quad repre-
sentative to IQC, posed the ques-
tion, "Exactly what actions can
we take without approval of the
Board of Governors?"
Moch Replies
Moch replied, "At times I get
the feeling that we're only an ad-
visory committee of the Board.
This disturbs me." He said that
IQC should be able to decide all
matters pertaining to the Quads
except those which involve finan-
cial considerations. "I was never
more frustrated than after the
last Board meeting," he said.
In other business, IQC is going
ahead with plans for an IQC-
Assembly show on March 3, in
spite of a conflict with Student
Government Council. According
to Moch, SGC calendared the show
last spring, but during the summer,
an informal committee changed
the date.
To Ignore Actions
He said IQC will ignore the
summer action because it did not
go through regular SGC channels.
Moch said the change was not
taken by SGC's Summer Interim
committee, the official agency, but

cil, said last night that his body
is not considering any such action
at the present time.'
No Direct Tie
According to Phelps, there is no
direct tie between Joint Judic
and IQC Judic. "Their decision
doesn't mean that we have to do
the same."
Phelps also doesn't think that
open hearings would be an im-
provement in Joint Judic proced-
ures. He feels that his body has
both a different jurisdiction and
a different purpose from IQC Ju-
Joint Judic has jurisdiction over
all University students, while IQC
Judic only considers problem
cases within the residence halls.
Involves First Offender
The typical Joint Judic case in-
volves a first offender who has
no desire for the publicity of an
open hearing. Moreover, Joint Ju-
dic functions as a counseling body,
helping offenders to stay out of
further trouble. "You couldn't
achieve the same frank atmos-
phere if other people were there,"
Phelps said.
The problems which come be-
fore IQC Judic are usually of in-
terest to many people in the resi-

Snub Request
From MSU
State legislators yesterday
squelchedpossibilities of providing
public funds for the medical col-
lege set up Nov. 17 by Michigan
State University.
House Speaker Donald Pears
(R-St. .Joseph) 'commented that
the state's other two medical col-
leges at Wayne State University
and the University needed money
and room for expansion to meet
the doctor shortage.
This priority "must delay" the
use of public funds to augment the
private grants on which the MSU
Board of Trustees had based the
Prefers Expansion
Rep. John M. Sobieski (D-De-
troit) added that expansion rather
than a new college was preferable
because, "We can't go around
building medical schools all over
the state."
Rep. Lloyd L. Anderson (R-
Pontiac), citing the high expense
of a medical education, said that
a new medical school would mean
a new hospital, and that state
efforts should center on the exist-
ing "basic facilities."
MSU President.John Hannah's
testimony in 1955 during the
wrangle of promoting his institu-
tion to a university was the reason
of Rep. William Romano (D-Mt.
Clemens) to reject MSU's plea.
Cites Hannah's Remark
He remarked that during the
legislative testimony Hannah had
said MSU would never build a
medical school because "we don't
have the faciities."
Sen. Clyde Geerlings (R-Hol-
land), chairman of the Senate
Tax Committee, said that medi-
cal colleges "should be where the
patients are ."

Reorganize Staff
On Interim Basis
Six months of a "constantly ac-
celerating" work load begin this
morning for the temporarily reor-
ganized dean of women's office,
Acting Dean Elizabeth M. Daven-
port said yesterday.
Reorganization of the office will
be on an interim basis pending
final recommendations and ac-
tions by the Regents, Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis explained. The reshuffling
was necessitated by the resigna-

sending out rooming applications
and continues to build up in vol-
ume right through the rest of the
school year."
Mrs. Davenport will coordinate
the general operations of the of-
fice, handle major disciplinary ac-
tion and scholarship grants, and
supervise the interim staff.
Assistant Dean Elizabeth Leslie

"will team up with me on special
assignments," Mrs. Davenport
Mrs. Fuller, who served as di-
rector of housing for the wom-

fective today. Staff members
Charlene A. Coady, M. Dorothy
Scott and Helen E. Tanner will
handle the work in the housing
Mrs. Bergeon will continue her
duties of supervising residence hall

Miss Bacon, whose resignation
comes then too, quit her job early
to prepare for a teaching assign-
ment next semester in the Eng-
lish department.
Mrs. Davenport stressed that
the dean of women's office is a
student service unit. "Our major
concern is that the students feel
there is a continuity of concern
for their welfare."

ucaion Report
Challenges South
LOUISVILLE ()-The South was challenged yesterday to
develop a far-reaching program of improving higher education,
or watch the rest of the nation go by in the parade of progress.
The challenge was contained in a comprehensive report,
with recommendations, from the Commission on Goals for
Higher Education in the South, set up by the Southern Regional
Education Board, a 16-state organization.
On hand for the meeting were seven Southern governors,
educators, business leaders and other interested persons.
Calls For Enrollment Boost
"Within Our Reach," title of the report by the seven-man
commission, calls for boosting college and university enrollment
in the South to 1.7 million students and putting $2.9 billion
annually into the higher education system by 1970. The expendi-
ture now is $1.1 billion a year for 883,000 students.
The commission proposed "a partnership of Southern higher
education, business, industry and government to promote the
growth of professional and technical manpower, to provide the
research necessary for full development of resources and to
speed the economic progress of the region.'
Unless the South makes this effort to. cultivate its intel-
lectual resources, the report said, "It must abandon hope of di-
recting its own economic destiny.
Can Develop Region Economically
"Economically, this region can be one of the most productive
areas on Earth," the report continued, adding that the area's
artists could bring new glory to American literature, art and
The report skipped briefly over racial problems, saying dis-
crimination is being eliminated as a barrier.
The group called for operation of universities on a year-
round basis with classes conducted a minimum of 45 weeks a
year. It also suggested development of a strong system of two-
year junior colleges in each state, to provide educational oppor-
tunities for urban dwellers financially unable to leave home for
Scholle Urges Creation.
OfCo-orLdinaing Council
Michigan AFL-CIO President August Scholle yesterday urged
the establishment of a central co-ordinating council for higher
education in testimony before the Constitutional Convention's com-
mittee on education.
Scholle said it could perform four major functions:
-Planning for higher educational needs of the state and estab-
lishnig goals and policies to meet them;
-Allocating functions and programs to state institutions which
would boost educational opportunities to the maximum level
while creating a "system" out of t

These votes represented the view
that no vote should be used to
'test' devotion to, or support of,
the sorority. Indeed, many house
officers voted on this basis," Pan-
hel President Susan Stillerman,
'62A&D said.
Majority Feeling
A good majority in the survey
were in favor of women remaining
in sororities despite any ruling
allowing them apartment permis-
sion. However, there was a sizeable
minority which voted the other
The members of the council ac-
cepted the survey's results as a
vote of confidence indicating that
the women are in back of the
sorority system as it currently is,
Miss Stillerman said. "The vote of
the women was a 'feeler' which
showed that they are not in favor
of seniors living away from the
house. Since this is the case, a
statement by Panhel to these indi-
vidual sororities forbidding apart-
ment living would only antagonize
Understand Position
"Women who wish to leave the
sorority system are in an under-
standable position and should not
be forced to remain living with a
group in which they are not en-
tirely happy.
"I do not inany way feel that
because a final decisioni was not
madetoday that this indicates a
general confusion. The fact that
the issues are becoming solidified
as they are is a clear indication
that any final decision which will
be made will have been based on
careful consideration of every as-
pect of the issue."

May Create
New Center

For Business
Has Hopes To Utilize
Supply Industries,
Trained Personnel
The University pledged full co-
operation yesterday to a plan by
aero-industrialist William P. Lear
which may be the first step toward
creating a growing business and
aircraft center in the Detroit-
Ann Arbor area, President Harlan
Hatcher said.
In an hour session with Univer-
sity officials, Lear proposed a series
of steps, utilizing University re-
search, consulting and Willow Run
facilities to transport his aircraft
industry from Europe.
Lear said his visit was to explore
the attitudes and resource of the
University - and he found them
"completely satisfactory." After
President Hatcher pledged his in-
stitution's cooperation, Lear said,
"Today I have become convinced
of the advisability of establishing
such a plan."
Expects To Profit
Lear expects this move to bear
eventual profit as he hopes to
utilize existing automobile supply
industries, reduce transportation
by centering production in this
market area of the United States
and attract military commissions.,
The move and the resultant de-
velopment of supply and 'research
industries would make this area
the production center for aircraft,
he predicted.
Lear sees the development of
sub-sonic aircraft as a future tool
of business much like the auto is
today. Considering this, he saw it
as most important to develop an
overall plan or blueprint to realize
this area as the center of sub-sonic
aircraft production.
Chooses Area
This area was chosen for the
availability of trained personnel,
consultants and research facilities
provided by the University as well
as the already'existing supply in-
dustries in the Detroit area.
President Hatcher saw Lear's
plan as a "wonderful thing for the
state" as it would eventually bring
$5 million a year payroll and per-
haps more industry. The plan is
"in accord with the interests of the
University," President Hatcher
An analysis of costs indicates
that economies in transportation,
duties and lower American prices
for airplane equipment would off-,
set high labor costs and allow pro-
duction in the United States at
no financial penalty, Lear ex-
plained. "And I hope that the
ingenuity of automobile vendors
in supplying parts can reduce the
cost," he added.
To Establish Design
The first step, establishment of
a preliminary design group at the
University to improve and further
research Lear's new plane, the
SAAC No. 23, will be a reality in 90
days. The next step, an assembly
plant to service SAAC planes in
this country, will be under con-
sideration by the end of 1962. Then
Lear foresees an eventual move of
production facilities here if all goes
The mutual stimulation in work-
fing with industry, th existing
interest of the faculty in low speed
flight, the University's low speed
wind tunnel and the large number
of students in aero-dynamics and

cited as further advantages in the
arrangement by Institute of Sci-
ence and Technology Director
Joseph Boyd and IST aeronautical
director Wilber Nelson.

universities should have a separate,
governing board. The University,

Krystall Trace s Background of Apartheid

Recounting 400 years of South
African history, Eric Krystall, a
candidate for a doctorate in so-
ciology, last night traced "Apar-
theid: South Africa" back to a
strong Afrikander Calvinist doc-
Sponsored by the Political Is-
sues Club, Krystall, a South Afri-
can, said that there are five major
racial groups that cause friction
in South Africa. These are Eng-
lish-speaking South Africans, Af-
rikanders of Dutch, Africa natives
or Bantu, Indians and Coloreds or
mixed races.

an "up and down struggle" be-

control of the tip of South Africa.
Final victory by the British re-

from London.

During the 1830's the Dutch
began to move inland. Krystall

great westward movement in
America. Traveling with "the

the other," the Dutch, Krystall
said, endured much hardship and

Today, Krystall noted, educated
Africans are resented by the tra-

The Afrikanders, however, split
into two groups, Krystall said.
Most of them chose to remember
the bitter war, saying they would
form an Afrikander nation. They
began building a national culture,
he said, as no other people have
except for Israel. They comprise
the present Nationalist Party.
A few Afrikanders, wishing to

ing people and underbid in the

as an ideal solutidn'to South Af-
