each of them."
The white Southern Rhodesians
have insisted that independence
must come to them no later than
to Northern Rhodesia and Negro-

should await new talks to work
out orderly arrangements to wind
up the federation.

-Three- opposition parties assail-

termed his pro-German attitude.
They demanded a special par-
liament session to deal with
mounting furor over German
scientists working for the United

A special session was considered
likely. The three parties-the Na-

from the current Passover recess.
Spokesmen forkthe parties said
they want to take up what they
called West Germany's reluctance

scientists from helping UAR arms

The ivory tower concept of a'
university does not characterize
universities today, since in reality
there is a close inter-relationship
between the university and society,
U n i v e r s i t y President Harlan
Hatcher said last night.
Speaking to business leaders at-
tending the President's Confer-
ence on Business and Industry,
President Hatcher pointed to the
whole area of modern research
which is opening up all the time,
a "relentless quest and adventure,,
which is seeking knowledge and
pouring it back into society."
President Hatcher noted that
the University has not slackened
its effort in cultural areas such
as literature, music and drama,
but also recognizes society's de-
mands for training and other pro-
cesses, which help form a useful
disposal of knowledge for the in-
dustrial and commercial parts of
"Part of the response to these
needs of our state and nation de-
pend on the development of re-
search. Lofty, high-priority pure
research moves hand in hand with
this, and the University hopes to
step this up to see that these new
areas are opened up to general'
knowledge, explored and made
useful for -the economy."
The University has a greater
role to play than it had in the
past, and it is here that produc-
tion of numerous new things for
the economy are made, President
Hatcher noted.
Tracing the development of the
modern university from the col-
lege, President Hatcher said that
"the little traditional centers of
subject matter split off, enlarged
and expanded. Research was plow-
ed back, and we have what you
have here: 17 schools and col-
leges." This is only one example
of what has happened at the Uni-
The University must continue

ing the field of knowledge,

WIn Board Posts
Victors Pledge Continued Effort
To Maintain High 'U' Standards
Incumbent Regents Eugene B. Power of Ann Arbor and
Donald M. D. Thurber of Grosse Pointe, both Democrats,
seemed to easily retain their positions on the University's
governing board.
Regent Power placed first with 669,786 votes; Thurber was
second with 654,910. The two Republican candidates, William
B. Cudlip of Grosse Pointe Shores and Ink White of St. Johns,
were defeated having 615,731 and 589,139 votes respectively,
with 4,151 of 5,209 precincts"
reporting at 2 a.m.
The victorious incumbents issu-
ed this joint statement:
"The voters have decisively re-
affirmed their long-standing com-
mitment to the welfare of the Un-
versity of Michigan. We are pleas-
ed with the confidence expressed'
in our service as Regents and we
pledge our best efforts during the
next eight years in continuing to
strengthen and advance the Uni-
versity in the interests of the great
state it serves."'
Regent Thurber opposed pass-
age of the proposed state consti-
tution which was ahead this morn-
ing, arguing vigorously against the
education article and the provi-
sion which would mandate the
governor to intervene during the
fiscal if the anticipated revenue
income conflicted with appropria-
tions. rr ti

Plan To Install Centrex
For Modern Telephones
The University announced plans to modernize the campus phone
service by installing a new system, known as -Centrex.
The telephone system, which will be ready for use by 1964, will
permit direct dialing to stations which are now only available through
the University operator. 10,400 on-campus phones will be involved.
The plan will also permit direct dialing to and from dormitory
rooms and the Medical Center. Medical Center patients and dormi-
tory residents wil enjoy 24 hour service.- The consolidated service

Unsettling Effect

tion would have "extremely un-
settling effect on faculty, student
and the reputation of the Uni-
His Democratic partner won on
a program which considered edu-
cation as the "birthright of every
child." He did not take a stand
on the constitution.
Both he and Thurber supported
the lowering of tuition but not at
the expense of the quality of the
University. They endorsed the con-
cept of high faculty salaries.
The two Republicans campaign-
ed on a strong support for the
adoption of the proposed state
During the campaign Thurber
viewed the role of the Regent as
that of any public servant-to be
responsible to his constituency and
to provide leadership. The Regent
is more expert on educational mat-
ters than the general public. Re-
gents would not be elected to eight
year terms if the public did not
expect them to initiate policy on
their own.
In discussing the role of the
Regent, Power maintained that the
Regent should not enter into the
day-to-day affairs of the Univer-
sity. They should get an over-all
picture of what the University is
doing and where it is going. The
Regents appoint administrators to
handle the daily problems, and if
they are not satisfied with the re-
sults, replacement is in order.
Regent Power, the president of
University Microfilms, Inc., has
served as chairman of the Board
since 1960 and has been a mem-
ber since 1955.
He campaigned on his record as
a Regent and on a six-point pro-
gram for improved statewide high-
er education.
'Orderly Expansion'
Regent Thurber, the president
of Public Relations Counselors,
Inc., supported "orderly expan-
sion of facilities" to meet the en-
rollment crisis. He maintained that
expansion not just coordination
would prepare the state for the
