JJC Completes Constitution

Joint Judiciary Council last
made final changes in its proposed
constitution, adding and specify-
ing rights of students brought
I , before the council.
The constitution, complete with
procedural bylaws and an appen-
dix, now goes to the Regents for
approval at their May 17 meeting.
The changes were made in re-
sponse to student criticisms of-

Cites Provisions
He cited four provisions of the
1962 Food and Agriculture Act
which can expedite this transition.
The act empowers the Agricul-
ture Department to make loans to
farmers and rural associations to
finance the development of rec-

sion of the constitution. These
criticisms had centered around
the lack of due process rights.
Answering these criticisms, the
council added a procedural bylaw
which provides that the council
will accept the testimony of all
appearing students "in good faith."
This addition was made in re-
sponse to the particular criticism
"that a student should be con-
sidered innocent until proven
guilty and should know that this
is the way in which his case will
be treated."
In other revisions, the council
changed constitutional provisions
which affect the appearing stu-
dent's rights to have an open
hearing, to call witnesses and to
ask for the reconstitution of the
council as an all male or all fe-
male body.
Hearing Option
The open hearing provisions
were changed to give each student
a specific option of whether he
wants an open or closed hearing.
The original proposed constitu-
tion had given the student the
right to an open hearing only upon
specific request. The old Joint
Judiciary constitution had no
provisions for open hearings.
The new witness procedure for-
malized last night will give the
student the right "to have wit-
nesses if he feels they will present
pertinent information to his hear-
ing." He is only required to notify
the council of the number and
nature of his witnesses before the
Reconstitution of Body
The council also changed the
constitution to make it clear that
they will reconstitute themselves
as an all male or all female body
"at and only at the student's re-
quest." This provision is included

NEW YORK (P) - William
Faulkner's I a s t w o r k, "The
Reivers," a lighthearted novel of
his native south, yesterday won
him posthumously the 1963 Pul-
itzer Prize for fiction.
There wa no award this year
for drama.
Faulkner, who died of a heart
attack last July 6 at the age of
64, previously had won a Pulitzer
Prize in 1955.
Top prize in the newspaper
category, the meritorious public
service award of a gold medal,
went to the Chicago Daily News,
for its series presenting all points
of view on the controversial sub-
ject of birth control services in
the public health programs of its
circulation area.
Favored in advance for the
drama ward had been Edward Al-
bee's Broadway hit, "W h o's
Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", a
caustic drama of faculty, sex and
politics at a small New England
Other awards in the field of
letters were:
General non-fiction - Barbara
W. Tuchman for "The Guns of
August," a best-selling account of
the first 30 days of fighting in
World War I.
Poetry - William Carlos Wil-
liams for "Pictures from Breu-
Music-Samuel Barber for his
"Piano Concerto No. 1," which had
its world premier by the Boston
Symphony.,Sept. 24 during the
opening week of the new Phil-
harmonic Hall at New York's

Turning to structural matters,
the council reorganized the con-
stitution so that the preamble
will include its specific authority.
As specifically drawn by Regent
bylaw 8.03 the council is empow-
ered to investigate and determine
"if an infraction of proper Uni-
versity rules and regulations has
been committed by any student,
group of' students or other stu-
dent organization."
Open Hearing
Joint Judiciary Council Chair-
man Lawrence Schwartz, 63, an-
nounced after the meeting last
night that the first open hearing
will be conducted Thursday night.
This hearing will be part of "a
demonstration of the constitu-
tion's new features" although the
document itself has not officially
been adopted, he said.
Wilson Cites
New Tfrends
College students today are, in
general, "more serious minded"
and attain higher marks than did
the students of a generation ago,
Logan Wilson, president of the
American Council of Education
said recently in New York.
Speaking about "The American
College Student Today," Wilson
told how current pressures impell
the college student to meet "heav-
ier intellectual demands."
With fewer distractions from
the campus and fraternity houses
-because more students in large
urban colleges live at home than
formally-the student is more on
his own and left to operate under
less "paternalistic" conditions,
Wilson said.
"Just as he can no longer get
into a selective institution solely
because he comes from a prom-
inent family, who can afford to
pay his bills, so does he find pres-
sures converging from many points
which drive him to better and
more difficult accomplishment.
"The 'gentleman's C' average,
which was good enough in other
eras, will not get him into a
medical school or open any doors
with leading law firms or large
business corporations. Pressures
are on him to do his best in
courses which will help in his
later career.
"High grades have become much
more important and the top-
ranking student has ceased to be
derided as a 'greasy grind'," Wil-
son said.
Practical Reasons
A possible drawback in all this
may be that practical reasons for
getting college education become
overriding, he warned.
The incentive to succeed voca-
tionally should not overshadow the
need for learning for learning's
sake and the imporvement of per-
sonal qualities, he added.
Wilson then went on to discuss
the charges that today's students
evince frustration and futility.
He attributes these attitudes at
least in part to world conditions
and the challenging of traditional
moral and religious values.
Sign of Improvement
"There are hopeful signs of im-
provement, however, and I believe
that the present generation of
college and university students will
be a main factor in bringing about
a better world. I believe that many
of them will go forth from our
institutions with less provincial
standards and with more capacity
for lifelong learning," he said.
Soon a college education will
stand about where a high school
education stood a generation ago
as evidence of "sufficient educa-
tion for the average," Wilson said.

DIT Dean
Leaves Job
After Row
The faculty turnover at the De-
troit Institute of Technology con-
tinued yesterday when DIT Pres-
ident Dewey F. Barich, accepted
the resignation of Peter J. Tura-
no, dean of the school.
Previously, the school had fired
five teachers. These protested that
their dismissal was due to their
part in establishing an American
Federation of Teacher's local at
The dispute was thrown out of
court by Circuit Judge Neal Fitz-
gerald last week. However, the un-
ion has announced further action
including an appeal to the state
Supreme Court and a possible
teachers' strike in September.
No official reason was given for
Turano's resignation other than
the comment of President Barich
that Turano had mentioned pre-
viously he wanted to get a job
that would include travel.
The resignation was received
"several days ago" according to
President Barich. It was not sup-
posed to be released until June 1
but was announced Friday when
word had leaked throughout the
Dean Turano was directly in-
volved in the "program of im-
provement" launched by President
Barich since DIT recently won ac-
creditation from the North Central'
Association of Colleges and Sec-
ondary Schools.
Grant To Aid
Five Studies
The University's Center for Re-
search on Conflict Resolution will
carry out five related projects on
the problems of war and peace
with the $245,000 research grant
which it recently received from
the Carnegie Corporation of New
A study which will attempt to
correlate the presence or absence
of war with conditions and events
from 1815-1845 will be made by
J. David Singer of the Mental
Health Research Institute.This
project points up the Center's in-
terest in the theory of conflict
and resolution.
Prof. Harold Jacobson of the
political science department will
study the role of the United Na-
tions in aiding the former colonial
nations to solve their problems.
Cold War Studies
Two projects dealing with the
Cold War are also planned. Simi-
larities and differences in the
"public sector" of the economies
of Communist and Western coun-
tries will be exployer by Prof.
Frederic L. Pryor of the economics
Prof. William A. Gamson of the
sociology department will make a
study concerning the measurement
of international tension and
"progress toward peace."
Various measures of these two
variables offer serious problems
the solution of which is a central
task of the proposed research.
The fifth project supported by
the Carnegie grant will be the de-
velopment and validation of meas-
uring techniques which can be
used in the investigation of the at-
titudes that people of one country
hold toward other countries.
Detroit Facilities
The study will be made by Prof.
Robert A. Hefner, Jr., of the psy-
chology department who will use
the facilities of the University's
Detroit Area Study in 1963-64.
Since its founding in 1959, the

Center has carried out a number
of studies including the economics
of disarmament and the values
and foreign policy positions of So-
viet and American elites.

Two-year junior colleges, tech-

Under the grant program, the
federal government would pay one-
third the cost of construction of
college facilities with the school or
other local interests financing the

Some $50 million yearly for three

the three years would be reserved
for graduate schools.
Council Agrees
To Formation
Of Bus Firn
The Ann Arbor City Council last
night agreed to the formation of
the Public Bus Company which
will replace the city bus system.
Bus operations ceased in the
city yesterday and will resume
running tomorrow under new man-
ager Leonard B. Jones, a former
city bus driver.
Fares will return to their orig-
inal rate and drivers will return
to work at their original salary
and hours. Under the former sys-
tem, fares were increased to 30
cents and drivers were working
under a 30-day agreement for in-
creased wages and shorter hours.
The city must make a $250
mortgage payment a month to for-
mer manager Arvin Marshall for
the buses. If at any time during
the 18-month contract with the
city the company should fail to
make a profit, Marshall could re-
gain control of the company.

Boulding Envisions Dangers of Population Growth

"For the next hundred years, life in the United States may
become less and less agreeable due to population increase," Prof.
Kenneth E. Boulding of the economics department predicted last
Speaking at the Ecumenical Center, Prof. Boulding said the in-

Prof. Boulding painted a darker picture for much of the rest
of the world. "I don't think Red China will be able to achieve
