Wegman Cites Scholar's Role

hie scholar's roles are those of
municating knowledge, search-
for the truth and maintain-
leadership, Dean Myron E.
,man of the public health
>ol said recently.,
:dressing 300 initiates of Phi
'pa Phi honor society, Dean
;man stressed the scholar's role
he community as well as the
ersity. He said that "scholar-

ship is useful as a basis for ac-
tion, but has no utility when used
simply to acquire knowledge."
Role of Leadership
Dean Wegman noted that the
university is no longer an isolated
community of scholars. Today,
scholars must assume a role of
leadership. He emphasized that
the scholar is among those people
best qualified to lead, and that it

.oss Urges Student Action
gainst Sbcial 'Status Quo'

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-v
and in a series on student political
action and student political apathy.
The views of United States National
Student Association President Den-
nis Shaul will be featured in the
concluding article.)
There is a need for students
vho take an "instrumental view"
f the world--"that attitude to-
rards yourself and the world
rhich sees the self as an ap-
ropriate vehicle of action," Stu-
ent Government Council member
tobert Ross, '63, said in a recent
Ross explained that the "in-
trumental view sees the individual
s potentially powerful in his so-
jal environment. The world is not
n immutable 'given', but a set
f conditions which should be
hianged if they are not meeting
uman needs and aspirations."
Ross fears that the present gen-'
ouncements is available to officially
ecognized and registered organizations
nly. Organizations who are planning
o be active for the Spring semester
hould register by Feb. 25. Forms

eration is losing this "instrumental
view" by refusing to consider so-
ciety's problems and possible so-
lutions to them.
Almost Educated
He criticized the "comfortable,
almost-educated, about-to-be-pro-
fessional and largely respectable
middle-class students" for abdi-
cating their political roles.
The liberal leader, on the other
hand, sees possibilities for action
in the individual's capacity as
student, future intellectual and
citizen, Ross said. He went on to
cite possible types of student ac-
"We can reject rules that en-
courage us to be childlike and as
helpless as children in our habits
of thought," Ross remarked.
The student's citizen role also
includes an interest in partisan
party politics. "We can join, and
fight, and ring doorbells and hand
out leaflets for what we believe-.
and not leave it to the other
fellows." Ross called citizen par-
ticipation in politics "the greatest
threat to the status quo in this
Future Intellectuals
As future intellectuals, students
can be "serious publics to the men
of power," to whom these leaders
feel responsible. They also can be
educators of the general public,
Ross commentedi
But, in a total view of American
society, Ross terms democracy "in
neglect, disuse and abuse. Policy
drifts with hysteria sand even at
times without humanity."
He pointed to the Port Huron
statement of Students for a Demo-
cratic Society, entitled "Alterna-
tives to Helplessness," which
places confidence in "insurgent
political reform on the community
level which will force our political
parties to be. responsible."
University Action
Ross condemned any restriction
of activity to the problems posed
by national and international poli-
tics. He suggested universities as
a target for student action.
"Universities must be reformed
to create that spirit of mind and
intellect which is prepared to face
creatively the problems our na-
tion and our educational system
face," he contended.
Ross spoke before an assembly
of students at Kalamazoo College,
following by one week the appear-
ance of SGC President Steven
Stockmeyer, '63.

is the scholar's duty to com-
municate his knowledge to help
guide members of the community.
Dean Wegman defined the
scholar's' role as one of searching
for the truth. To illustrate the
importance of the word "truth"
to the scholar, he pointed out
that many academic institutions,
among them the University, use
that word in their motto.
Obstacles to Truth
In discussing the scholar's
search for truth, Dean Wegman
referred to the four obstacles to
truth which Roger Bacon cited
in the 13th Century. These ob-
structions which the scholar faces
are "subservience to authority, ad-
herence to custom, submission to
popular prejudice and covering ig-
norance by an ostentatious dis-
play of knowledge."
Dean Wegman outlined the uni-
versity's role in scholarship as "an
attempt to build up independence
of thought." He pointed out that
though the scholar should always
take pride in his work, he must
realize that it is always incom-
plete. Because of the "changing
character of truth," Dean Wegman
said, the "reward for scholarship
is the need to keep on studying."
Draft .Board Sets
.Deferment Test
Students wishing' draft defer-
ment may now apply for the April
18 selective service qualification
test. Applications, available at all
Michigan draft boards, must be
postmarked no later than March
28. The examinations, which will
be given at 21 colleges in the
state, seek to determine "aptitude
for continued study."

SGC Kills
Voting Plan
By Districts
Student Government Council re-
jected a plan for election of Coun-
cil members by geographical dis-
tricts at its meeting Wednesday
Council member Robert Ross,
'63, objected to the proposal on
grounds that it did not accurately
reflect the student population dis-
Another objection, voiced by
Daily Editor Michael Olinick, '63,
was that the representatives would
have "no kinship" with their con-
stituents. He noted that a num-
ber of students who voted in one
district in a spring election would
have changed their residences in
the fall.
The proposal, brought before
Council by its Committee on Stu-
dent Concerns, called for the elec-
tion of Council members through
districts. It would divide the cam-
pus area into seven districts, each
district electing two representa-
tives to SGC.
"This system would increase
campus respect for Council and
for the president and vice-presi-
dent," committee chairman Sherry
Miller, '65, argued.
In other business, SGC adopted
the Credentials and Rules Commit-
tee suggested procedures for the
upcoming campus elections. It also
approved the recommendation of
Gail Dunham, '65, as elections di-
The Council granted recognition
to the following organizations: the
Finance Club, the Industrial En-
gineers, the Phileutherian Society
and the Physical Therapy Club. It
granted ad hoc recognition to the
Students for Cudlip and White for
Board of Regents Committee.


Students- Publish New Journal
Of Social Psychology Writings

The purpose of the new Mich-
igan Social Psychology Student
Journal, as stated in the editorial
of the first issue, is "to create a
microcosm of the publishing ex-
perience for students and to pro-
vide feedback on their work from
faculty and other students."
J. Alan Winter, Grad, and
Daryl Bem, Grad, are the co-
editors of the Journal.
Winter said the social psycho-
logy program students decided a
year and a half ago to provide
some means (outside of the for-
mal structure of course work) for
communicating about their work.
'the first step was to gather term
papers and place them in the psy-
chology department library.
Few Students
"Very few students made use of
this method. This year, discussion
of a journal came up at one of
the social psychology meetings,
and Daryl and I decided to get
it started," Winter said.
The first issue, which contains
five papers suggested by instruc-
tors of the 1961-1962 pro-semi-
nars, is not widely distributed.
There are eight copies in all,
available in the psychology de-
partment library, program office,
graduate reading room and Men-
tal Health Institute library, Bem
The five articles in the Journal
are: "Grooming A-B-X for the
Computer Age," by Bem; "Talcot
Parsons: A Theory of Action?"
by Jack Fowler, Grad; "Conform-
ity Processes in Interpersonal Be-
havior," by Ronald Lambert,
Grad; "Theology as Axiomatics,"
by Winter; and "A Conceptual
Analysis of 'Common' and
'Shared' in Terms of Interpersonal
Cognitions," by Jorge Garcia-
Bouza, Grad.
Important Part
"The most important part of
the Journal is the feedback on


articles. Each copy of'the Journal
has comment sheets for students
and faculty. This also will give us
an idea of how many people read
it," Bem said.
"The Journal's format is not
fixed, and in the future it may be
possible to provide each person
with a copy. If it is continued, the
Journal will have a student edi-
torial board to review papers and
decide on a definite format to be
followed," Winter explained.
