Seventy-Two Years of Editorial Freedom



Faculty Asks for Stand



A faculty petition with 26 initial faculty signatures began cir-
culating yesterday recommending that the University take a position
on the proposed fair housing ordinance for Ann Arbor.
The petition says, "We believe that acceptance of the principle
of non-dictation does not preclude University participation in the
formation of the moral sense of the community."
It notes that, "We believe that the proposed housing legislation
vitally affects the University. Our world-wide prestige cannot but

Chairman of the Board in Con-
trol of Student Publications Prof.
Luke K. Cooperrider recently re-
plied to the Student Government
Council motion of Feb. 6 to permit
Daily editorial evaluation of Re-
gental candidates.
Prof. Cooperrider wrote in a let-
ter to SGC President Steven Stock-
meyer, '63, that "the argument for
a departure from past practice" is
"not convincing." Cooperrider not-
ed that that particular question
was. reviewed as a "part of the
'Daily Code of Ethics' only last
year. '
He explained the Board's posi-
tion on the Regental bylaw which
states, "no editorial should take
sides in elections to the Board of
Regents." He said, "that they
(members of the Daily staff)
should, as individual students and
citizens, seek to influence the out-
come is not only natural but de-
sirable." However, he added that
such participation should be "in
those ways open on an equal basis
to other students."
Cooperrider explained that this
single exception to editorial free-
dom was necessitated by "the re-
lation which exists between the
Regents, the University, and The
He noted that the/opinions stat-
ed in editorials are those of the
"individual writers" and not those
of the University. However, "the
situation can be misinterpreted,

He also chided the chief execu-
tive as being "very impatient to
know what Congress is going to
do" about it.
Speaking at a news conference,
Dirksen carried on the word

ing the President's claim that he
gave Congress a "hard" budget
that can't be cut deeply without
danger or hardship.
Dirksen got support from a
Southern Democrat, Sen. A. Willis
Robertson of Virginia, who in a
Senate speech called for a $6-
billion slash but-unlike the Re-
publicans, so far-spelled out in
detail how it should be done.

The statement commends the
administration "for their express-
ed concern for the fair nousing of
students and staff."
The petition refers to Univer-
sity President Harlan Hatcher's
assertion last week that "we do
not believe the University should
attempt to dictate legislation to
the city of Ann Arbor."
He had expressed "sympathy"
with the efforts of the Human
Relations Board to secure fair
housing legislation in AnnArbor
and noted that the Regents, fac-
ulty and administration have

The ordinance for fair housing
is scheduled to be considered for

Aroner Comments
HRB Chairman David Aroner,
'64, said last night that the peti-
tion was "not an official program
of the HRB and was written by a
faculty member."
He stressed that although some
members of the HRB are circulat-
ing it, it is an individual express-
ion of opinion. Other students
and faculty members are also cir-
culating the petition and there
is no organization behind it.
Aroner estimated that the dead-
line for faculty signatures would
be sometime next week, prior to
a meeting the HRB expects to
have with President Hatcher. At
that time the petition will be
presented to him.
Prof. Henry L. Bretton of the
political science department, one
of the signers, noted that the
petition was "meant to be a very
gentle reminder, without being an
organizational pressure instru-
ment, that the University has a

Milliken and Sen. William Lep-

that they expected that the joint

the education committee, after re-

Board of Governors chairman
Maurice Brown.

However, Milliken said that be-
fore his committee would intro-
duce the resolution, the Wurzel
bill, which would set up a junior-
senior level "piggy-back" college
in the tri-county area, would have
to "run its course in the House."

King Criticizes
Albany Action
ALBANY, Ga. (P--An Atlanta
integration leader said yesterday
that the rescinding of Albany's
segregation orinances could not
"be interpreted as anything that
resembles a good faith move."
The Rev. Martin Luther King
Jr., active during sit-in demon-
strations in Albany last year, said
in Atlanta that the city commis-
sion "obviously repealed their
segregation ordinances because
they recognized that segregation
as a legal issue is dead."
The commission voted G-1
Wednesday night to strike out all
the city's segregation ordinances.
The move apparently was aimed
at bolstering the city's legal posi-
tion on racial issues.
Commissioners said the city is
not interested in desegregating
any local facility but is simply
conforming to United States law
as outlined by the Supreme Court.

"The aim of the revolution is to
bring the army back to the Arab
line," the broadcast said.
Syrian Broadcasts
The broadcasts were beamed
simultaneously over Syria's Alep-
po radio, indicating the revolt was
widespread. The first broadcast
came on the air around 5 a.m.
(midnight EST).
It said the Middle Eastern

A revolt in Syria had been ex-

ficers in neighboring Iraq over-

with overtures to the new Iraqi re-
gime, but the Iraqi revolutionists
rebuffed them and turned to Nas-
ser instead.
Four days ago, Cairo radio an-
nounced that Syrian army units

Sees Hope
Daily Correspondent
CHICAGO - Taking "a 21st
century look at education," the
Vice-President of the *Fund for
the Advancement of Education
gently scored the present-day col-
lege, but predicted that it is in
a stage of development which
offers the brightest hopes for the
"Let us assume for a moment
that the next 37 years have be-
come history," Alvin C. Eurich
told the 18th national conference
on higher education Tuesday
night. "It is now 2000 A.D. From
this vantage point let us cast a
glance at the development of
higher education in the United
States during the 20th century."
Eurich predicted that junior
college education would become
standard and that the liberal arts
college would turn to a three year
program ending in a masters de-
gree. "The transition took place
with surprising sroothness," he
commented througa his mythical
21st century glasses. "Once foot-
ball, basketball and other sports
became completely professional-
ized and the social iraternit'es
and sororities vanished from the
scene, the need for the first two
years of college abruptly ceased."
Change'! Emphasis
The college will turn from an
emphasis on material values (the
earning power of a degree) and
factual knowledge toward "much
more emphasis on developing wis-
dom; on leading our young people
to higher levels of mWurity in
dealing with the ideas that have
made a difference in the progress
of civilization," he said.
Referring to the present era he
noted, "No great philosophers
emerged; the sciences dominated
the college and university cam-
puses." In the 21st century, how-
ever, "at least a dozen brilliant
young philosophers are cutting
across subject-matter disciplines
and showing signs of developing
a new synthesis of knowledge."
Eurichdeclared that the great
differences of the college of the
future will not be in curricular
changes, but in the fullest utiliza-
tion of learning devices just now
being developed and tested. He
predicted that television and pro-
grammed learning will not de-
personalize education.
Such devices will permit the
future professor to deal with stu-
dents on a completely individual
New Tecniques
The new techniques "'nabled
us to break through the ancient
framework which used to bind
college education into a rigid
pattern," Eurich said.
"Today, flexibility and adjust-
ment to individual differences are
axioiatic. Each student progesses
at his own rate. He studies much
of the time on his own, or with
fellow students but always with
instant access to the complete
range of learning resources: taped
lectures, programmed course ma-
terials, language audio tapes, bib-
liographies and original docu-
ments on microfilm."

A proposal for a Commission o.

ed to the committee that wrote it

University Executive Vice-Pres-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss said yes-
The proposal, a part of Univer-
sity Senate's Committee on Staff
Excellence, was approved by the
senate in April 1961. Vice-Presi-
dent Niehuss noted that the report
was sent back because of objec-
tions from the deans and execu-
tive committees of the various
schools and colleges.
The report called for a com-
mission, composed of "faculty of
demonstrated excellence in teach-
ing and research," who would de-
termnie whether the conditions for

ious units of the University.

The report stressed that the
commission would not be concern-
ed with the actual professional
quality of the faculty in different
areas but merely with certain
broad conditions conducive to ex-.
Prof. John W. Henderson of the
Medical School and chairman of
the committee noted that the
group was working on revising the
proposal but that the proposed
commission would be "somewhat
different in its jurisdiction."
He added that a revised report
hopefully will be ready to go be-
fore the senate at its April meet-
Heyis Comments
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger W. Heyns, who is pres-
ently working with the cdmmit-
tee, said that "many of the deans
and executive committees felt that
maintaining excellence was within
their jurisdiction."
The report, after being passed
by the senate, was sent to the Re-
gents in November 1961. The Re-
gents requested Vice-President
Niehuss to review the report and
make recommendations.
Vice-President Niehuss found,
after soliciting the opinions of the
deans and executive committees, a
significant amount of uncertainty
about the value of the commit-
tee's report. He went before the
Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs with Vice-Presi-
dent Heyns and pointed to the op-
position from some of the individ-
ual units. He asked whether the

The University is building at its
Willow Run facilities the world's
largest "heavy liquid" bubble
chamber for the study of atomic
However, because it must be
used in conjunction with a high
energy particle accellerator, the
bubble chamber will be installed
by June, 1964, at the Argonne
National Laboratory near Chi-

physics department, explained.
The devise now under construc-

one will be attached to the Zero

construction at the Argonne Lab-
oratory. It is one of three of its
type in the United States and
one of five in the world.

"University physicists presum-
ably will be the primary users of

versities using it," Prof. Sinclair
TLe University will conduct
two, four-week major experiments

cameras, taking photographs of
particle tracks, will take 100,000-

ies. Some 10 months or more will.
be necessary to analyze them.
