The number of men in fraternities showed an increase of three

Membership Increases
Sorority membership showed an increase of four, from 1,315
to 1,319, and a percentage drop from 17.39 to 16.25.
Cooperatives found themselves in the same position, Their per-
centage decreased minutely from 1.02 to 1.00 while membership
rose from 234 to 237.
University residence halls showed a decrease all across the
line. The total number of students living in them decreased from
7,523 to 7,340, a drop from 32.90 per cent to 31.09.

Noting the later drop, Ostafin explained that Victor Vaughn
women's residence was phased out of the dormitory system last
year. Geddes woman's cooperative also suffered a similar fate.
Popular Apartments
University apartments rose in popularity with 945 students liv-
ing in them as opposed to 869 last year. This resulted in a percent-
age rise from 3.8 to 4.0.
The largest change was in the miscellaneous category which
includes students enrolled at the University but living in different
parts of the country. The number of students in this category
stod at 125 as opposed to 285 last year. In both years all of these
were men. The percentages were 1.25 and .53, respectively.
Ostafin said that this was perfectly normal for this category
and that the figures will vary depending on how knowledgeable the
analyst is.
Viewing the overall housing situation he said that "our big
gap is housing for the upperclassmen, graduates and professional
student." The development of "a regular flexible development" on
North Campus will tend to alleviate this.

Finke Talks
About Union
Speaking before the Michigan
Union Installation Banquet last
night; outgoing Union President
Robert F. Finke, '63, reviewed his
year in office.
He said it was a year in which
he saw the Union come alive to the
atmosphere of the University" and
"the University become aware of
the Union," but noted the Univer-
sity's failure to support the Union
with additional funds for more
services and improved facilities.
"I believe that the University
can do this," he elaborated. "It
has been given compelling reasons
to provide additional support this
past year, and I would call upon
the University to show cause why
the Union should not receive, an
additional allocation-its first in
11 years.".
Finke expressed concern for the
University's "muddied approach to
student affairs" and called upon
students to "do what they can to
disperse whatever it is that ob-
scures the University's vision and
to try to work for a clearer ap-
proach to student affairs."
He endorsed the idea of form-
Ing another political party on this
campus, providing that such a
body be "structured.n such a way
as to be primarily an instrument
for providing information about
student affairs to the student
Referring to the recent efforts
to merge the Michigan Union and
Women's League, Finke recognized
that such a merger, resulting in a
University center, would not be an
easy goal to achieve and should
be attended to with all expediency
and "tireless efforts on the part
oji Union and League people.'

It asked that an implementation
committee be charged with the
task of determining the specifics
of such a merger.
Regents Irene Murphy of Birm-
ingham, member of the Board,
pointed out that the work of such
an implementation committee
should be given to paid staff mem-
bers since it is properly a func-
tion of University management.
Of particular concern to the
Board was the destiny of the pres-
ent Union and League plants un-
der a merged governing board.
Mrs. William Walz, chairman of
the board, suggested that the study
committee devote itself to the de-
velopment of a combined student
activities committee and "divorce
itself from the question of the use
of building facilities at this time."
League President Margaret
Skiles, '63, noted, "It is almost
impossible to merge student ac-
tivities without merging the gov-
erning boards above it. A combin-
ed student activities group could
not operate successfully witfiout
one single group to which it would
be responsible."
The study committee will take
these issues into consideration be-
fore it presents its final recom-
mendation later in the semester.

Interquadrangle Council last
night voted to submit to the houses

amendment which would allow

The amendment also requires
that the candidate have at least
one additional semester experience

There are four levels in the
study of leadership, Prof. James
MacGregor Burns of Williams Col-

Prof. Burns divides between the
contemporary and topical, the
strategic, the normative and the
theoretical approaches to leader-
ship. Leadership, however, is the
key, he noted.
The author of "John Kennedy:
A Political Profile," commented
that within the Kennedy Admin-
istration "we are seeing a con-
test between the Richard Neu-
stadt and the Burns approaches
to leadership."

fessional as Neustadt said and
hoped that he would."
On of second level, there is
the question of what is meant, by
political leadership, Prof. Burns
remarked. "It is a question of
whether we look at the leader as
a resultant of the pressures on
him or as a man who can rise
above the pressures and change
the context within which the
leadership works."
Former President Franklin D.
Roosevelt was a strategic leader
and therefore he missed the su-
preme opportunity to change,
Prof. Burns continued. He cited
Roosevelt's move toward court re-
form in 1937 as a mistake since

he noted. Intertwined with this
tradition is an.American fear of
"I would argue that majority'
rule and leadership are insepar-
able." There is no such thing as
a tryranny of the majority, Prof.
Burns maintained.
There are forces in the nation
today for a pluralism which should
exploit the "majority, a majority

Burns noted that in the last 20-
30 years there has been a shift
