In the literary college, however, the student is- bound only by a set
of distribution requirements which channels, but does not specify. A
student may take virtually anything he wishes. The counselor must
deal with the student on a one-to-one basis, using his persuasion and
advice to recommend and approve electives.
The academic counselor has no binding authority on the student.
His only real power is to recommend courses or curricula on the basis
of information he has available on the student.
The Bureau of Psychological Services, consisting of four divisions,
offers a great variety of counseling services to students.
The first of these is the reading improvement service, a division
which has much more scope than its name implies. Students may
develop reading speed and comprehension, improve their ability to
write exams and take notes, increase their vocabularies, improve
spelling and theme writing and learn new methods for studying langu-
The usual procedure here is to assign a student to special classes
designed for his particular purpose.
With the increasing ability of contemporary society to digest
sample space surveys, statistical research into methodology, and psy-
chological approaches to problem solving, counseling, including that
at the University, has ostensibly taken a new approach.
The evaluation and examination division best illustrates this. By
providing test data, providing procedures for classifying and placing
students, conducting research on aptitude testing and seeking improve-
ment of present counseling methods, the division keeps other coun-
seling groups informed.
The student counseling division utilizes trained psychologists to
assist students in nearly any problem they might face. The procedure
here is usually a series of interviews designed to give a student a
broader outlook at his particular problem.
The psychological clinic, also a part of the Bureau of Psychological
Services, provides service for people, usually in the local area, who are
For problems directly related to University conduct, such as
scholarships, loans, discipline, autos, and housing, both the offices of
the deans of men and women can be consulted. The two offices also
refer students to other counseling services,
Both the men's and, women's residence halls have potential
counselors in the resident advisers, assistant resident advisers, and
Students with mental, emotional and personality problems,
especially those resulting from physical disorders, may find help in
the mental hygiene unit of the Health Service.
The unit accommodates all requests as soon as possible. Since
about one-third of the students seeking help at the student counseling
division of the Bureau of Psychological Services cannot be accommo-
dated because of lack of time, many students go here for help.
Two University divisions which employ counseling as a subsidiary
service are the admissions office and the registration and records
office. The admissions office gives counseling on request to high school
students who are considering coming to the University. The registra-
tion and records office gives supplementary academic counseling, advice
concerning the selective service system and provides various counseling
services during orientation.
For students with certain special needs, there are several topical
counseling services available.
The veterans affairs office acts as a liaison between the University
and the Veterans Administration.
The speech clinic tests each student upon entrance for possible
speech defects and provides special training for those who need it.
The appointments bureau handles student problems for both short
and long-range employment while out of, school. The summer place-
ment division helps to find jobs for students during summer, both in
and out of Ann Arbor.

Seventy-One Years of Editorial Freedom
XXII, No. 86 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 1962 SEVEN CENTS
By MICHAEL HARRAH
Special To The Daily
LANSING - The matter of a
state income tax appears to have
split the so-called moderate bloc
in Michigan's state senate.
Four members of the informal
coalition have admitted that they
would not be adverse to consider-
ing such a tax. Sen. Stanley G.
Thayer (R-Ann Arbor) reiterated
that "we will have to accept the
basic principle of an income tax"
if the state is to do anything about
its fiscal problems. Senators Wil-
liam E. Milliken (R-Traverse City),
Farrell E. Roberts (R-Pontiac)
and John W. Fitzgerald (R-Grand
But another moderate, Sen.
Harry Litowich (R-Benton Har-
bor), was emphatic in his opposi-
tion to an income tax. "If we pass
such a tax, it might start out with
exemptions of $5,000 and a two per
cent rate, but it would soon de-
generate into a $500 exemption
and a five per cent rate.
"And there's no reason to believe,
it would be temporary: no tax is
very temporary. If the working
men think this is a good thing, it
wouldn't be good for very long."
Litowich pointed out that the
cost of instituting and keeping up
the machinery and personnel for
an income tax would be "enor-
mous," and not worth the expense.
Rep. Gail R. Handy (R-Eau
Claire) emphasized "this tax would
be murder and most Republicans
will fight it. We've got a duty to
every "little guy" in Michigan to
protect his income."
Handy looked upon the idea as
an attempt by lobbyists to shift
the tax burden to "the common
fellow who has no lobby."
Speaker of the House Don R.
Pears (R - Buchanan) said "it's
dead, as far as I'm concerned.
Some Republicans may support it,
but it won't' get anywhere."
Meanwhile, Sen. Frank D. Beadle
(R-St. Clair) summoned a GOP
caucus at which he told the sena-
tors that he did not "think we
should close the door on a broad
base income tax and corporation
tax" with certain adjustments.

To Decide Question
By CYNTHIA NEU
Student Government Council
last night postponed further de-
bate of a motion establishing a
procedure for determining the
adequacy of fraternity and sorority
membership statements and set-
ting a deadline for the submission
of adequate- statements until its
Feb. 14 meeting.
In its present form the motion
would mandate the president of
SGC to inspect the statements
filed in order to give notice to any
group which has not met the re-
quirements of the University Reg-
ulation of Dec. 13, 1960 requiring
groups to submit a list of mem-
bership provisions and an inter-
Fraternities and sororities whose
statements in his opinion do not
include the information and in-
terpretations would be notified of
the deficiency by the president be-
fore 'Feb. 23.
Corrected statements would have
to be resubmitted to the Office of
the Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs within 60 days from the date
of notification by SGC.
Under the provisions of the mo-
tion, "If the president of SGC
finds that a group has not sub-
mitted an adequate statement in
terms of the University Regula-
tion of Dec. 13, 1960, within the
prescribed time, he shall report
this to SGC and with, the consent
of, the Committee on Membership
in Student Organizations shall
provide all relevant documents and
Groups which did not submit the
required additional material would
be subject to disciplinary action
by the Council. Any such proceed-
ing would be conducted in execu-
tive session, with the stipulation
that a summary be reported pub-
licly by the chairman.
All social fraternities and soror-
ities have submitted statements,
although nine professional groups
had not submitted the material by
the deadline yesterday.
The Executive Committee of the
Council will act as a fact finding
board to investigate the problems
of these groups in submitting
statements and recommend a
course of action to SGC.

City Businessmen Favor Fund
By KATHRYN VOGT
and JOHN McREYNOLDS
Ann Arbor businessmen heavily
favor an increase in the state
appropriations to the University
in the future.
Many believe that business with-
in Ann Arbor will face a setback
from competition with the newly-
constructed shopping centers at
the outskirts of the city.
These are two of the results of
a recent survey by The Daily of
49 city merchants in the campus
and Main Street shopping areas.
Even though some complained
that "the University leaches off
is too high, while the rest had
no definite opinions on the sub-
ject. As would be expected, the
campus area businessmen were
slightly more favorable to a pro-
posed increase. Many expressed
the idea that tuition should also
be raised, since wages and salaries
Only half of the campus area
merchants expected that a signi-
ficant increase in appropriations
would have any effect on their
business (unanimous reason: in-
creased enrollment), and a third

versity funds would have no effect
whatsoever on trade. On Main
