The State Bar of Michigan, in
oiperation with the Constitu-
n~al Convention, has mailed a

its 9,200 members.
The questions were drawn up at
nt meetings of the convention's
tirt administration and judicial

suits will be presented to the
ummittees by next Wednesday.-

er, he feels that if the national
erprets other clauses (such as
cially acceptable") to be dis-
minatory, there would be solid
>unds for committee action.
The third complicating factor
rolves the adequacy and inade-
acy of some of the affiliate
itements. The committee has
d time to view only half of the
arters, and some still have not
er turned in. -
the committee has the power
only "request" additional infor-
tion if necessary from the com-
fined-against groups, but Mc-
rry believes that his provision
sufficient, because "groups who
uld refuse to cooperate would be

Although the professionals have

at they should be evaluated in

Compflcating Factors
['he confidential nature of this
ormation, and of other com-

iable, McCorry remarked. "There
no need to make these public
w; if we recommend action to

types of courts such as circuit and
probate. Each section contains the

Increased Salaries
In addition to basic questions
concerning judicial selection and
tenure, information is asked in re-
lation to the creation and discon-'
tinuation of various types of courts

salaries for -court members.
The various methods of judicial
selection being considered are:
nomination, election and appoint-

partisan basis.

Merit 'Winners
List College
The University was recently,
named as one of the 12 institu-
tions which attract one third of
all National Merit Scholars.
It ranks ninth, the only state
institution among the top 12
which include in order Harvard,
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology, Stanford, R a'd c I i f f e,
Princeton, California Institute of
Technology, Yale, Rice, Oberlin,
Swarthmore and Cornell.
In a current issue of the "Amer-
ican Psychologist," National Mer-
it Scholarship Corporation Presi-
dent John M. Stalnaker says 400
of the 1,200 United States col-
leges and universities have en-
rolled Merit Scholars.
Scholars Concentrate
"But more than 60 per cent of
the finalists . . . and merit schol-
ars themselves, have concentrat-
ed on only 40 institutions of which
the University is one."
The University has attracted
107 Merit Scholars since 1956
when the program began. They
have received a total of $107,720
in grants. Sixty-six Merit Schol-
ars are on campus now. In a poll
of 34,000' top scoring students,
one third of the men indicated a
preference for the University,
MIT, Stanford, Princeton, Cor-
nell, Yale, the University of Cali-
fornia (Berkeley) and Notre Dame.
Women Choose
Women selected Radcliffe, Stan-
ford, Cornell, Wellesley, Berkeley,
Oberlin, S m i t h, Swarthmore,
Northwestern and the University
as their top choices.
The University and Berkeley
were the only state institutions,
listed by both men and women.
Stalnaker said the University's;
popularity indicates its national
reputation among able high school
students and their advisors.
SGC Petitioning
To Begin Today
Petitioning opens today for the
Student Government Council seat
vacated by the resignation of Wil-
1iam Gleason.
\ The new member selected by
the Council will hold office until
the next SGC election in March.
Completed petitions must be turn-
ed in by 4 p.m. Friday and may
be obtained from Administrative
Secretary Jean Spencer, 1546

'U' A tternpts
In Classes
In an attempt to aid future
teachers to learn how to deal with
children in actual classroom set-
tings, Prof. William C. Morse of
thec education school is currently
leading an unusual seminar for
honors students;
.Prof. Morse explained that the
students work in teams and spendl
about four hours a week in actual
contact with the children. This is
not part of the regular student
teacher program where the stu-
dents go to classes and conduct
them for a few months.
It is more concerned with the
problems of child development and
the transfering of textbook theor-
ies into actual practice.
Observe Classes
The students sit and watch in
the classrooms of two local teach-
ers who are willing to face the
questions and criticisms of the
students. After the class the stu-
dent teams and the teachers dis-
cuss the way the teacher handled
certain classroom problems, they
also evaluate the classwork and
study learning motivations. z
At other times the students help
in the classroom, tutoring or plan-
ning programs. They have access
to the records of the students in
the class and do a case study of
the children. These records are
confidential and the students
learn how to use and evaluate
them, Prof. Morse said.
Discuss Problems
The various teams of students;
meet in the seminar and discuss
the readings or problems they ob-
served in the classroom. They also
discuss several case studies for the
benefit of the group. The students
then write papers on the psychol-
ogy of learning based on their
case studies.
This is learning to teach, not
just memorizing psychology or
methods from textbooks. Although
they do read materials on the
subject, they must see the situa-
tions for themselves, Prof. Morse
points out.

Ask Control
The Early Registration Pass
Committee now possess all early
passes, Ronald Keller, administra-
tive assistant in the registration
and records office, has said.
By their sole control of these
passes they hope to alleviate many
of the problems that have arisen
when several offices or groups
have given out passes, he explain-
"In the past some deans and
orientation officials had been writ-
ing passes," Robert Wilensky, '62,
chairman of the committee point-
ed out. "We would like to be the
only organization writing passes."
Some passes had remained in
the registration and records of-
fice, so occasionally deans and
other officials would come to that
office to obtain passes for student
aides, Keller explained.
The committee will meet from
8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:30 to 5
p.m. Feb. 6 and 7 in Conference
Rm. 2 of the League to hear re-
quests for passes.
Students working 15 or more
hours a week are eligible for
passes. The request must be ac-
companied by a letter from his
employer. Students holding meal
jobs are ineligible for a pass.

further consideration within a very
short time after they apply.
About five per cent of the best
qualified out-state students are
accepted on the "early decision
plan" which assures them ad-
mission early in the senior year.
To apply for early decision a
student must promise to attend
the University and to make no
other applications in the mean-
If more qualified students apply
than the University can accept for
the following semester, they are
placed on a waiting list and then
informeddefinitely early enough
so that they may apply elsewhere
if they are not admitted. Groes-
beck said the final adjustment is
made in late March or early April.
Underestimate Cancellations
Although in the past, instate
residents'have been placed on the
waiting list, Groesbeck said the
number of cancellations is usually
underestimated so that "thus far,
no qualified Michigan resident has
been rejected."
No strict geographical quotas
are imposed, except for the general
practice that no more than one
third of the students accepted
shall live outside of Michigan.
Groesbeck said an attempt is
made to maintain wide represen-
tation from other areas since the
cosmopolitan atmosphere of the
University is considered one of its
greatest assests. In striving for
wide representation, however,
Groesbeck said the sacrifice of
ability to geographic variety is
kept to a minimum.
Discusses Outstaters
Vroman said outstate enroll-
ment depends to some extent on
where the majority of the popula-
tion is located and where alumni
live. "The purpose of accepting
students from outside Michigan is
to enrich the student body, mak-
ing the University a better insti-
tution for Michigan residents.
Children of alumni who live out-
side Michigan are given "as much
preference as, possible" Vroman
said, explaining that this prefer-
ence must vary from year to year
depending on the volumne of ap-
plications. There is no strict policy
on acceptance alumni' children
although in the past an attempt
has been made to give them as
much preference as in-state resi-
Groesbeck said the University is
usually able to accept all qualified
out-state applicants except in the
literary college and in the archi-
tecture program.
Last year 400 qualified out-state
students were turned, down by the

a glance at the test scores" for
in-state residents. For out-state
residents, twice as much weight
is placed on high school grades
as upon test scores.
Both Vroman and Groesbeck
said statements about the prob-
ability of the student's success are
taken carefully into account in
instances where the office is fa-
miliar with the high school from
which the applicant comes.
In the long run, Groesbeck said.
qualifications for admission have
been going up as the number .of
qualified applicants has increased.
Between 1955 and 1961, the per-
centage of University students in
the top 10 per cent of their high
school classes was 40 per cent. The
figure has now risen to 57 per cent,
making higher high school grades
