eliminating the 30 per cent tax

that no one master plan will solve
the educational problems of the
state-flexibility is necessary.
Huff offered a compromise mo-
tion which clearly stated that the
Co-ordinating Council "firmly op-
poses any program of founding
satellite or branch campuses over
the state" and that the Council
believes that any institution in
Michigan's Thumb Area should be
However, the motion pointed
out that since the citizens of the
tri-county area strongly support
the University-Delta plan, the
Council should authorize the Uni-
versity "to act in the capacity of
a trustee in setting up an insti-
tution along the line of the plan
before the Council and that this
trusteeship should last for seven
years at the conclusion of which
the Council will again review the
progress made and recommend
either the continuation of the
trusteeship, that a free-standing
institution be created or that
Delta become in fact a branch
campus of the University."
The Huff motion failed with
only Huff and President Hatcher
voting in favor of the measure.
The rest of the vote tallied two
abstentions and six opposing.
President Hatcher said that the
Co-ordinating Council's failure to
support the plan to create the
University of Michigan at Delta
was not surprising in light of the
stand taken earlier in the day by
the Michigan State Council of
College Presidents.
Yesterday morning the group of
college presidents decided that the
"University-Delta plan was not
in the best interests of the area."

are coordinated to help preserve
national feelings.
The International Center pur-
posely refrains from overplanning
for international student activi-
ties, since "we feel that there is
not enough opportunity for the in-
dividual student to speak and plan
for himself," Miss Cady said. Cam-
pus programs such as the Union-
League big sister and brother pro-
grams promote year-long friend-
ships for some international stu-
dents, but much of the interaction
mut be initiated by the individual.
According to Klinger, cultural
interaction routes develop easily
when based on local professional
fraternities and professional in-
terest groups such as campus
roundtables in graduate education,
engineering, and political science.
Interaction Effort
In fields of area and language
studies there is often a more con-
scious effort toward interaction by
both American and international
students, Klinger said.
He observed that spontaneous in-
tercultural communication among
married international students is
also easier, through car-pools and

are students and not experts in
certain areas."
Voice candidates and Smithson
emphasize the role of the student
in cooperation with the faculty,
and ask that administration policy
making power be lessened.
Voice notes its sponsorship of
the student-facultygovernment
motion and asserts the party will
work for "the attainment of this
goal as a step towards a more re-
sponsible and democratic deci-
sion-making process within the
academic community."
University Philosophy
Miss Norton criticizes the Uni-
versity philosophy of acting in
place of our parents. She cited as
examples of "paternalism" rules
regulating dress, prohibition of
apartments to women except sen-
ions, women's hours, and chaper-
one form requirements.
Miss Norton contends that "pa-
ternalism impinges on individual-
ism and hinders education" and
concludes thatr"students should
have thespower to make their own
regulations regarding student con-
Rutherford notes that "student
self regulation and complete free-
dom is a wonderful principle but

Klinger Assesses Problems of Foreig

Two Indiana universities have
volunteered to start paying pro-
perty taxes on real estate they
own which is not used for educa-
tional purposes.
Indiana and Butler Universities,
both of which own large amounts
of property bought for income-
producing purposes, are surrender-
ing the tax exemption privilege
formerly accorded to all properties
owned by religious, educational
and charitable organizations. In-
diana is in the midst -of a fiscal
However, the Indiana action
does not apply to the University's
real estate, University Attorney
Edmund A. Cummiskey said yes-
"It has always been the policy
of the Regents not to invest en-
dowment funds in income-produc-
ing properties," because they feel
it unfair to deprive the local gov-
ernments of such taxable real
estate, he explained.
He added that all property the
University owns is used for an
educational purpose of some sort.
As for the possibility of relin-
quishing their tax-exemption on
these lands, Cummiskey said the
University could not do it simply
by a Regental decision.
Such properties are actually
owned by the state, and a state
law guarantees exemption to "all
properties belonging to the state
of Michigan . . and still held
by the state."
Sanders To Join
Fellows of AIA
Prof. Walter B. Sanders of the
architecture college will become a
fellow of the American Institute
of Architects at the annual A.I.A.
Convention in Miami, May 5 to 9.
He will be one of 35 members ad-
vanced at that time, promotions
being made on the basis of dis-
tinguished performance in archi-
tectural design, literature, educa-
tion, public service, and service
to the A.I.A.

Klinger also pointed out that
students from some countries are
less likely to make extensive con-
tacts because their traditionall
conception of the student involvesj
only academic pursuits.1
The International center fur-'
nishes various services for inter-
national students, such as coun-
seling and vacation tours to ma-
jor American cities. The 450-mem-
ber International Student Asso-
ciation coordinates intercultural
association through the Interna-
tional Student, a monthly news-,
letter, and various luncheon andI
panel discussions acquainting in-
ternational students with civil
rights, political systems, and oth-
er aspects of American life.
American students comprise 50
per cent of ISA's membership, and
discussions and "culture nights";
are held to acquaint them and oth-1
er international students with a
particular culture.
Since the International Center1
feels that international students7
must balance intercultural con-
tacts with associations with their1
countrymen, 18 nationality clubs,
