are played in the original language
a great deal is lost to the audi-
ence, particularly if there is dia-
logue. If the audience doesn't fol-
low the words, it cah discover only
the coarsest humor," he said.
As a voice teacher, Prof. Her-
bert, who is also associated with
the Metropolitan Opera, prefers
comic opera for students, because
"they do not kill themselves on
heavy dramatic roles." If a student
is not yet an accomplished artist,
it is much harder for him to do
the :harder roles, he believes. When

opera, he said.
Discussing the singer's problem
of learning to act and continue
singing, Prof. Herbert cited the
need for leniency on the part of
the audience. "Some people with
great voices have difficulty acting
and it must be remembered that
they are there primarily to sing,"

The University, Wayne State
University and Michigan State
University are independent of lo-
cal and state laws because of their
special status in the Michigan
Constitution, a representative of
the University's legal office said
The legislative, executive and
judiciary are usually thought of
as the three parts of government;
in Michigan the field of educa-
tion is the fourth.
The State Constitution specific-
ally provides for administration of
state colleges, making them an
arm of the state government. This
is why they are not subject to
regulation by local government.
They are also not liable to regula-
tion by state law any more than,
for example, the Legislature is
subject to regulation by the state
Article III, section V of the State
Constitution says that "the Board
of Regents shall have the general
supervision and the direction and
control of all expenditures from
the University funds." This sec-
tion applies to the University's Re-
gents and similar ones exist for
WSU and MSU. This has been con-
strued by the Michigan Supreme
Court as giving the Regents inde-.
pendent control over all Univer-

fraternity members said. All four
of the thefts occurred early Sun-
day or Monday morning.
Officers noted that a number of
rooms on the second and third
floors of the.. Chi Psi house were
ransacked by the thieves but the
prowlers entered only those rooms
which were not occupied at the
sions are many. The recent con-
flict between the city of Ann Ar-f
bor and the University in regard
to University violation of local zon-
ing laws in its Oxford Housing
Project is one example of this.
State regulations also do not ap-
ply to these three universities. Re-
gents committees set up fire and
health regulations for the Univer-
sity. City and state fire marshals
act in an advisory capacity in
making regulations and creating
alarm systems, but rules are made
by the Regents themselves.
Other demands are exerted -on
the Regents. The Legislature has
the responsibility of maintaining
the universities; it has some con-
trol, therefore, over what rules
govern them. Legislative power is
limited also. A recent opinion by
Frank J. Kelley, Michigan attor-
ney-general, states that the Legis-
lature may not make specific de-
mands for the use of the general
funds appropriated by it to the

Gary Gilbar '65A&D, .will ask
Council to approve a proposal re-
quiring "knowledge tests" for SGC

The proposal is aimed at providing

election to Council.
Sculpture is. an art existing in
three dimensions, and students of
the introductory sculpture classes
must deal with problems which are
non-existent in painting.
Prof. Thomas F. McClure of the
architecture college organizes the
curriculum of his section of the
course around a series of problems.
An example of such a problem
might be "Organize a. group of
related forms within a sphere."
The objective of such a plan
is to "offer the students exper-
ience in all materials and to spur,
them to do a thing never done,
before . . . in yet another way,"
Prof. McClure said recently.
The students have a wide range
of materials to choose from, each
containing its own intrinsic prob-
lem through which the student
must develop his exprersion.
Selection of material might be
in the traditional vein of stone
carving or bronze casting, or the
student might prefer a modern
sculptural aesthetic, like the weld-
ed metal structures which build up
by acetelyne torch fusions of
lengths of metal.
Going beyond the limits of one
single medium, a new level of
originality can be seen in the
conglomerate "junk" structures.
These artifacts might begin as dis-
carded tin cans, automobile parts
and rubbish but emerge into in-
geniously forged sculpture
Since its inception with prehis-
toric man, the subject of sculp-
tural art has been life and more
essentially the human figure.
Thus the classes may meet with

That preposterous professor is on the loose again!
a model who sits in various poses
to offer through study of and
feeling for the living human body.
Concerning the degree of ab-
straction in the rendering of these
figures and works done without a
model, Prof. McClure commented
that "although some students work
quite representationally, the re-
sults are never completely realistic.
Urged to assert originality and
freedom of expression, the stu-
dents are never forced to work
in a traditional vein unless they
"Some people seem to have a
natural ability to work in form,"
Prof. McClure said, but he feels
that there is no trait necessary
to the successful sculpture stu-
dent beyond talent and ingenuity.
Before entering the sculpture
classes, the student must take the
basic studio course as an orien-
tation in the fundamental skills
of all the arts. Completing this
three-semester prerequisite, the
student can enter a beginning
sculpture course as early as the
Along with the practical art
courses, the students are required
to take history of art courses.
Prof. McClure spoke optimis-
tically concerning the possible
futures for students of sculpture.
"Without a question there is a
good market: many people are
making a living in sculpture now
who couldn't do it 10 years ago."

compares favorably with the na-

would seem remarkably good, in
