DITOR'S NOTE: Professor Eder
he music school wrote this ar-
to explain the change in plans
he University Musical Society's
nber Music Festival, to be held
Wednesday through Sunday.)

Daily Guest Writer,
The announcement by the Un-
versity Musical Society of the in-
dispositiion of Joseph Roisman,
first violinist of the Budapest
String Quartet, and of the conse-
quent substitution of works oth-
er than string quartets for the
Beethoven cycle previously an-
nounced for this week's Chamber
Music Festival, must bring some
disappointment to Ann Arbor's
considerable chamber music audi-
Roisman will be keenly missed,
both as a long-time friend and
for his outstanding artistry; and
the opportunity of hearing the
Budapest Quartet in their unex-
celled presentation of the cycle is
rare indeed. It is to be hoped
that this privilege may occur in
the future.
The programs now scheduled,
however, do offer compensations
of an unusual and most welcome
charaeter. The works to be heard
-piano trios, piano quartets and
string, trios, for the most part by
Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms-
are of the highest order, and rare-
ly performed by major ensembles.
In the present instance one may
anticpate performances of excep-
tional character and high excel-
Istomin In
The performers, Roisman's three
Budapest colleagues Alexander
Schneider, Boris Kroyt and Mischa
Schneider, will be joined by Eu-
gene Istomin, pianist. The caliber
and experience of these artists
makes inevitable their knowledge
and familiarity with the breadth
and depth of the chamber music
literature and with the trios and
quartets to be performed. They
have, in fact, recently presented
like programs together in Califor-
It is of interest to note, too,
that the performance capacities
and experiences of Alexander
Schneider go far beyond those

business interests, the Alliance for
Progress and the problems of de-
fining the forces and initiatives of
Panelists generally agreed that
at minimum, the Alliance for Pro-
gress had not caught the interests
'of Latin American people. Some
attacked it as impossible as it only
allowed three dollars per person
per year. Others believed that
Latin American governments do
not understand the plan or found
it politically inexpedient to stress
cooperation with unpopular
United States.
New Roles
Delegates broke up into fifteen
seminars in the afternoon to dis-
cuss various espects of the roles
of the agricultural sectors, the
urban middle classes, urban lower
classes, the military and the
Evening discussion centered on
the role of the university and the
student in Latin America. The
conference will close this morning
with a summary panel discussion.

Fi II;

usually associated with the dedi-
cated second violinist. During sev-
eral "sabbatical" years of absence
from the Budapest Quartet he
functioned as the violinist of the
most excellent Albeneri Trio, with
Benar Cheifetz, cellist, and Erich
Itor Kahn, pianist. He has gained
additional recognition for his per-
formances of the sonata litera-
ture and in the annual Casals Fes-
tival in Puerto Rico.
Fortuitous Results
The temporary changes in media
indicated for the members of the
quartet may induce particularly
interesting and fortuitous results
in performance. Any confirmed
quartet artist will find real re-
freshment and an invigorating
challenge in moving away from
the ever-present, more confining
quartet disciplines to the more
free, soloistic and varied functions
present in string trio, piano trio
and piano quartet.
Under the circumstances, one
may expect a spontaneous welling
up of capacities, oft times restrain-
ed, that may produce particularly
inspired moments. In the vigor-
ous, more flaunting works of
Brahms, the brash virtuosity of the
Mozart Divertimento, and in the
transparency and looser frame of
string trio, each of the performers
must emerge to the Ann Arbor
audience in more defined, personal
and full character than has here-
tofore been possible.
This should prove no disappoint-
ment to anyone. It may indeed
provide to the enduring and truly
great Budapest Quartet a new en-
vironment and vitality that. any
great quartet must periodically
discover for itself.
Panhel Views
Rush, Passes
Election Slate
Members of Panhellenic Asso-
ciation President's Council noted
the importance of encouraging
rushees to ask the questions with
which they are most concerned
during rush at their weekly meet-
ing yesterday.
"The deepest questions about
the sorority system as a whole
come during the first and second
parties,"X Wanda Westate, '63Ed,
said. "I think it is a challenge to
the members of Panhel to be able
to answer the questions about the
value of a sorority system. You
aren't a member of your individ-
ual chapter, but of the sorority
system as a whole."
The presidents also approved
nominees for various offices for
the Panhellenic Association elec-
tion which will take place on
March 4. Candidates are:
President: Patricia Elkins, '64, Delta
Delta Delta; Jacquelyn Kasabach, '64,
Alpha Delta P.
Executive Vice-President: Patricia
Lutes, '64Ed, Gamma Phi Beta; Mary

A second co-ordinating method
is interlocking directorates. Often,
as Prof. Wilson pointed out, fac-
ulty members serve on both an
institute and academic unit execu-
tive boards. Or they may serve on
one for a number of years, then
be appointed to the other.
The deans and directors keep
up a great deal of informal com-
munication. "It is very rare that
a week goes by without my seeing
the dean of engineering or literary
colleges," Prof. Wilson noted.
Sponsored Research
The Institute of Science and
Technology is the largest single
research unit, handling $10 mil-
lion-approximately 30 per cent-
of the University's sponsored re-
The institute is informally bro-
ken into two functions. One aspect
deals with co-ordinating and aid-
ing state industry and research.
The other wing carries out approx-
imately $9 million worth of spon-
sored research each year.
The institute is divided into
14 research divisions: acoustics
and seismics, analog computer,
biophysics, computation, counter-
measures, engineering psychology,
glacial geology and polar research,
Great Lakes research, infrared,
navigation and guidance, opera-
tions research, radar, sensory sub-
systems and solid state physics.
Major Conductor
It is the major conductor of de-
fense research at the University.
The major effort costing $4 mil-
lion a year is Project Michigan--'
studying and devising means for
long-range detection of military
Other areas of IST's defense'
work include aerospace instrumen-
tation, air defense, electronic
countermeasures and seismic de-
tection of nuclear explosions.
Much of the defense-oriented
research also has civilian applica-
tions and IST also conducts non-'
military research. Such projects'
include aircraft navigation aids
and air traffic control, applic:-
tion of technical surveillance or
remote-sensing devices to the.
earth sciences, arms control 'and
disarmament measures and maser
and laser research and application.
Begun after World War II as a
alumni-sponsored project for ap-
plying nuclear energy for peaceful
purposes, the Memorial-Phoenix
Project has a 'nuclear reactor
which is used for varied nuclear
experiments in the physics and
medical areas.
While the vice-president for re-1
search co-ordinates research ac-4
tivities, several agencies help ad-i
minister it.
The Office of Research Admin-
istration is the contract adminis-
tration staff of the vice-presidenti
for research. It administers spon-i
sored research, providing program
and proposal development services
for researchers. This technical ser-
vice is designed to relieve re-
searchers of the problem of writ-
ing detailed propositions for in-<
tricate federal consideration. 1

ORA also deals with the federal
government in obtaining contracts
and maintains bookkeeping rec-
ords. It also handles personnel
and security services for research
Lastly, it provides administra-
tive services, such as typing and
releasing reports for researchers.
ORA maintains branch offices
for the large IST and Willow Run
Special Services
The day-to-day financial affairs
of research is handled by the
Sponsored Research Business Of-
fice of the office of the vice-
president in charge of business
and finance. This office also pro-
vides special services, among them
a travel office for research per-
However, the responsibility for
the research content lies with the
researcher and the unit he works
On the whole, most faculty and
administrators are satisfied with
the research administration set up.
"It works smoothly, especially in
comparison with other universi-
ties," Prof. Wilson noted.
"After all, the University is
dealing with public money and
this tends to increase the sense
of responsibility," he added.
Prof. Rensis Likert, ISR director
and chairman of the University
Senate committee on research, de-
clared that the University has
done a good job in decentralizing
research administration.
"As University research has in-
creased seven-fold since 1949,
there is quite a problem of man-
agement," -he said. This growth
has forced decentralization of re-
search administration.
"I am impressed by the Univer-
sity's meeting the problem by de-
centralizing. There is more de-
centralized decision making than
in most universities," he declared.
Prof. Likert warned that as re-
search services grow there may be
a jam up in paper work caused
especially by University dealings
with the federal government.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
of a five-part series of profiles on
the several officials in the Office
of Student Affairs.)
Former Assistant Dean of Men
John Bingley is working late these
As director of student organiza-
tions and activities in the Office
of Student Affairs, Bingley finds
himself doing much more evening
work than he used to because
"students insist on meeting at
He spends the greatest amount
of his time personally counselling
students. "I may speak at a fra-
ternity house, and from this a stu-
dent may feel that he knows me,
so he comes in to talk. When I
find out his problem I'll send
him to the proper person," he said
Financial Problems
Counselling student organiza-
tions, especially new ones and
those with financial problems, al-
so takes up much of his time. In
addition, there is the inevitable
letter writing.
Bingley emphasized that job
descriptions for the positions in
his office would not be written
until the end of this semester.
"None of us have a feeling of
insecurity, but we don't want to
set things in concrete just yet.
We are pretty well set up since we
have been discussing this work
since the summer."
He added that the work he is
doing now is that which he is fa-
miliar with, having done most of
it in his former position. The only
areas he no longer deals with are
loans and grants-in-aid.
Other Duties
Aside from regular work, Bing-
ley is a member of the Committee
on Membership Selection, the
Orientation Committee and is an
adviser to the Student Government
Coucil's Judiciary Committee as
well as to Sphinx, junior men's
honorary. He also is a member of
the history department and teach-
es a great books course.
In addition to dealing with stu-
dent organizations, the director of
student organizations and activi-
ties is also responsible for affiliat-
ed and associated housing, off-

The latter functioip Is under the
direction of William Perigo. For-
merly connected with loans and
scholarships, Perigo now admin-
isters automobile regulations and.
reviews applications for commut-
ing or business stickers. He works
with Joint Judiciary Council when
cases involving the violation of
these regulations come up.
Represents 'U'
Perigo's other job is to repre-
sent the University in city court
when University students are con-
cerned. "I go down to represent
those students whose parents
aren't here or who have no at-
Former SGC President John
Feldkamp, '61, is advisor on fra-
ternities, and deals with 43 under-
graduate and 19 professional fra-
"Most of my work is purely
counselling, usually w o r k i n g
through the house presidents."
This indirectly brings him into
advising Interfraternity Council.
He also deals with chapter adviser
and national fraternity represen-
tatives, as well as the Committee
on Membership. Due to his un-

dergraduate activities on SGC, he
is sometimes consulted on general
student affairs.
More Notice
"The fraternity area is being
given more attention than before
now that it is no longer under the
dean of men. We have a great deal
of leeway and are able to carry
out independent operations," he
Mrs. Elizabeth Leslie has two
roles. She coordinates associated
and affiliated housing working in
the area of placements, physical
properties, environmental health
and relationships with the city on
inspection of non-University own-
ed housing.

On Economics
Two separate studies of eco-
nomic behavior in the United
States have been launched by the
Institute for Social Research.
''Factors Which Influence Eco-
nomic Behavior" will be studied
under a $180,000 17-month grant
from the Carnegie Corp., while a
study of "Pilot Studies in Family
Decision-Making" is being con-
ducted under a one-year $13,000
grant for the Institute of Life In-
The first study will use a na-
tional personal interview survey
to study factors which affect eco-
nomic behavior.
The second project will, employ
field trials in which families will
be interviewed individually and
jointly, before and after economic
decisions have been made. The
purpose will be to determine what
pattern of procedures and what
forms of questioning will best re-
veal how decisions are made in the

"A conductor must fulfill with
pendantic exact-tude every note,
every dot and every direction of
the composer,", William Steinberg,
conductor of the Pittsburgh Sym-
phony Orchestra, said before the
concert last Thursday evening.
"Then the conductor may do
what he wishes, but only within
the confines of this matrix. This
is the responsibility of any .con-
ductor, or any performer, for that
Steinberg explained that he
does not like the term "technique"
attached to the gestures of the
conductor. A conductor expresses
the music by his own means,, and
each is different. A conductor con-
veys an experience to the musi-
cians, not a technique.
. Personal Matter
"Every conductor studies a score
differently. This process is a very
personal thing," Steinberg con-
"I never study a score at an
instrument because to study the
parts on an instrument for which
they were not intended distracts
from the way it will sound in
performance. I sit at my desk and
hear the score in my ear as I
read through it. This way I can
hear it as I will want to hear it
performed; I will hear each in-
strument playing its respective
Steinberg explained that he
first analyzes a piece from the
aspect of form. In this way he
determines its organization and
construction. Next he observes the
melodic lines and distinguishes
them from the harmonic and rhy-
thmic fillers. Finally he learns the
Not Photographic
"I do not have a photographic
memory," he said. "It's funny,
either a person can learn score or
he can't. By learning a score I do
not mean memorizing it. One can-
not memorize a score, only learn
it. I can write out a score from
memory only because I understand
it, because I have taken it apart
and put it together as the original
composer did. In this way, by re-
creating the composer's process,
I understand his reasons for every
note and every dot."
Steinberg pointed out that any-
body who cannot write out-'a score
from understanding has no busi-
ness conducting without it. How-

ever, this is a very trivial matter.
There is nothing wrong in con-
ducting with a score.
"I do not use a score because I
feel closer to the process the com-
poser went through when I re-
create it by conducting from my
understanding of it. Only snobs
and idiots think a conductor is
no good unless he conducts from
memory. The young conductors
think it is part of their job, but,
again, everyone is different."
Well-Received Webern-
Steinberg explained that Anton
Webern's "Symphony, Op. 21," a
twelve-tone work, was received
very wellon the tour. Many people
applauded out of genuine sincer-
ity; others because they felt it
was the proper thing to do.
"Music is first of all the art of
beautiful sound, then the art of
emotion. The younger generation
is able to derive emotional stimu-
lation from contemporary twelve-
tone composition. In time twelve-
tone works will become part of the
classic repertoire," Steinberg pre-
He continued, "I see no new
trends in musical composition.
The contemporary composers have
many techniques which have just
begun to be explored. The de-
velopment of these ideas will keep
them busy for many years."
