leyns Cites Promotion Criteria

The promotion of 225 faculty
members will be publicly announc-
ed early next week, Vice-President
for AcademicAffairsRoger W.
Heyns reported yesterday.
He informed the Regents of the'
appointments and outlined the
University's procedure in making
faculty promotions.
There are three criteria for ad-
vancement: teaching, research and
service, Vice-President Heyns ex-
plained. Faculty members must be
outstanding in one of these areas
and above average in the other
two to qualify ,for consideration.
Never Automatic
He added that no promotion is
ever automatic and that "elapsed
time" at the University is not
taken into consideration.
"We have continually held be-
fore the faculty that teaching is
just as important as the other two

areas," he stressed. Other uni-
versities place research above
teaching and service, but this has
not been the case at the Univer-
sity within the last few decades,
Vice-President Heyns continued.
Almost 100 of the promotions
are from assistant to associate
professor the crucial step that as-
sumes "prolonged contribution to
the University" he explained.
"Some of the most outstanding
men are in this category."
Unlimited Association
This particular promotion is a
form of agreement between the
University and the individual to
"an Association unlimted by time.
We know the relationship will be
a long, productive commitment,"
Vice-President Heyns noted.
"Figuring that these men have
an average salary of $15,000 for
40-50 years, this represents mil-
lions of dollars of investments on

faculty promotions

Hatcher Reveals Testimony



Acting City Editor

The group of 50-odd citizens
studying Michigan's higher educa-
tion system. has been informed
that not only will the present ra-
tio of undergraduates at the Uni-
versity be maintained, it in fact,
may be increased.
Telling the Regents yesterday
of his recent statements before
Plan No Hike
In '63 fees
University tuition and residence
hall rates will remain at their
present level for at least the com-
ing year, University President Har-
lan Hatcher announced yesterday.
Last spring' the REgents raised
resident and non-resident tuition
for the sixth time sinces1949. on
a graduated basis for freshman-
sophomore and junior - senior
levels, he noted.
President Hatcher reported that
the University "ranks third among
54 state institutions in fees charg-
ed non-residents in the first two
years, and fifth in non-resident
fees in the last two years."
Since 1948 resident undergradu-
ate fees have risen 100 and 121
per cent, and non-resident fees
156 and 170 per cent respectively.
University fees are well above
the national average for resident
students as well, he announced.
No matter how great our need may
be this year, clearly, we cannot
go to the student again and again
for funds. Every time we raise
fees, we lose some able students
who have been living marginally
and already are in debt," Presi-
dent Hatcher noted.
"For them, low-cost public edu-
cation is virtually the only course
they can follow. By blocking off
this course, we do them and the
entire country great harm."
He also pointed out that fees
were raised last spring to help the
University meet its operating costs,f
and that the University has tried
to offset this by increasing its
scholarships, fellowships, student
loan funds and student employ-
mient opportunities.
Bar Peronists
From Elections
In Argentina
BUENOS AIRES (R)-Argentine
President Jose Maria Guido's gov-
ernment last night banned fol-
lowers of exiled ex-dictator Juan
D. Peron from seekifig executive
offices in national elections set for

Gov. George Romney's "blue-rib-
bon" Citizens Committee on High-
er Education, University President
Harlan Hatcher declared that the
impending "baby boom" wave of
applicants must somehow be met.
"We're just beginning to get
public consciousness of the fact
that it's not just a question of
getting high school graduates in-
to universities," he said.
Biggest Danger
"The biggest danger is that stu-
dents Will be forced to go through
the motions of education" as state
institutions neglect to grow and
make necessary internal adjust-
Therefore, the University must
retain its commitment to furnish-
ing undergraduate instruction,
President Hatcher explained. But
he expects that in the 1970's, after
the "baby boom" has levelled off,
the graduate-professional ratio
will probably start going up again.
Questioning from the "blue-rib-
bon" committee touched only on
broad issues involving higher edu-
cation, President Hatcher report-
Financial Resume
He was asked, for example, to
give a general rundown on the
distribution of funds to the Uni-
versity from state and federal
sources. But since the latter near-
ly matches the former, he was
"embarrassed" to tell the commit-
tee just how little money the Uni-
versity gets, in relative terms,
from the state.

He also cautioned the commit-
tee against "solving the educa-
tional problems of the state by
duplicating layers of services at
each college."
Functional Division
Instead, the division of labor
should be made on the basis of
services which each institution'
can offer in its own right.
Other topics probed at the com-
mittee session included the effect
of research on both the University
and the state economy, the growth
of "intellectual power centers"
such as the University and the
need to talk of faculty salaries
and building facilities in terms of
the level of student one is trying
to teach.I
At a press conference after the
Regents' meeting, the President
defended the private nature of his
appearance before the committee.
Closed Sessions
Under its "ground rules," the
group prefers to have closed dis-
cussions as it begins to study
the problems falling under its
mandate and arrive at prelimin-
ary conclusions.
Such deliberative bodies "need
to have a favorable atmosphere
and need not be publicized," he
President Hatcher's remarks re-
ferred to a recent decision by the
"blue-ribbon" group's three chair-
men that press and public would
be excluded from the group's

the part of the University," he
Vice-President Heyns brought to
the Regents' attention the "con-
stant process of adding young
people to the faculty, and the
University's interest in increasing
the number of social scientists.
Explains Criteria
Explaining each of the three
criteria for promotion, he noted
that it is' extremely difficult to
evaluate teaching ability. How-
ever "several obvious ways, in-
cluding the easiest, are often over-
"In an academic climate, in-
dividuals teach each other, and
the faculty works together in in-
formal discussion and participa-
tion. Such peer judgement is cri-
terion, but several University de-
partments also examine student
"In any intellectual climate it
is always difficult to judge teach-
ing, and in some areas it is hard-
er than others," Vice-President
Heyns explained.
Service ,
Service includes a variety of
activities from administrative re-'
sponsibility to committee work,
faculty government and University
Senate affairs, according to Vice-
President Heyns. It may also be
work in governmental agencies and
social services when such action
is considered valuable to the Uni-
versity, directly or indirectly, he
On research, Vice - President
Heyns stated that there has been
no "shift in enphasis" within the
University, and the frequently-
discussed "research image" is the
result of many years of "com-
petence in this area."

STUDENT-FACULTY CENTER - Architect's sketch shows the
North Campus Center to be completed by fall, 1964. It will include
meeting rooms and dining and cafeteria areas for both students
and faculty.
'U' To Construct 'Union'
For Student, Faculty Use,
The University will construct a North Campus Student-Faculty'
Center at a cost of $1.3 million to be completed by fall 1964.
The center will include meeting rooms and dining and cafeteria
areas on two levels-similar to a Union for North Campus, Vice-
President for Busines and Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont announced
at yesterday's Regents' meeting.
He also pointed out that the Dearborn Campus housing facilities
for 30 new apartment units will be ready for occupancy next spring
on that campus. The cost of the

The, Regents yesterday confirmed Student Government
Council's power to withdraw recognition from fraternities

bership selection practices.
The action ruled that fraternities and sororities were

ISR Building
Preliminary drawings are being
completed for the new Institute
of Social Research Building to be
constructed on Thompson Street
near the SAB. Robert B. Voight,
assistant ISR director estimated
that if plans go on schedule the
building will be ready for occu-
pancy in less than two years.
The North Campus Center will
have a capacity of 600 people--
200 at the ground level and 400
on the upper level. No state funds
will be used. in the project, which
is to be self-liquidating and self-
financing, Vice-President Pierpont
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis added that
many of the rooms will be multi-
purpose for student and commun-
ity groups in the area.
Food Service
"With the Institute of Science
and Technology and the new Music
School Building opening in the
area, there will be a large need
for food service on North Cam-
pus," Vice-President Pierpont add-
The building will be flexible
enough to allow for future expan-
sion on the east and north ends.
It will be located on North Cam-
pus Blvd.
The first level will contain stu-
dent snack bars, cafeterias and
meeting rooms, while the second
level will have larger cafeteria
and dining facilities, Vice-Presi-
dent Pierpont noted.
The building will also be con-
vertible to the major food-service
production and distribution cen-
ter for the area. When construct-
ed, it will have both waitress and
cafeteria type facilities.
With over 43,000 square feet of
building area, the building also
will contain extensive vending ma-
chine facilities, public restrooms
and a news-cigarette stand.

Students Hit,
Quarter Plan
Approximately 100 Wayne State
University students picketed on
campus yesterday in protest
against the academic quarter sys-
tem, instituted for the first time
this year at WSU.
The plan was supposed to allow
students to complete two semes-
ters' work in three quarters. "How-
ever, one semester's work is being
compressed into one quarter," WSU
Daily Collegian City Editor Lloyd
Weston claimed.
The greatest percentage ofrthe
demonstrators apparently favor
the trimester plan. However, ac-
cording to Weston they have never
formally notified the administra-
tion of this preference or suggest-
ed any other alternatives.
Other Gripes
Student spokesmen for the pick-
eters said their action was also
taken in order to call attention to
two other major sources of stu-
dent discontent at WSU.
Chairman Joel Sharkey of
WSU's Student-Faculty Council,
and one of the leaders in yester-
day's demonstration, said the pick-
ets were intended to show "the
necessity for increased participa-
tion on the part of students and
faculty in the decision-making
processes of the university ad-
Weston noted that the faculty
voted for the quarter system, al-
though now many claim they had
insufficient information to realize
the disadvantages of it. "Students
were not consulted at all" on their
feelings about the quarter system
before it was initiated, Weston
Economic Causes
Student picketers pointed to
"economic causes'' for initiation
of the system as a second impetus
to the protest.
One of the crucial reasons stat-
ed by WSU officials for the re-
scheduling was that it would save
the university money, necessary
because the state Legislature had
not appropriated sufficient funds
for its needs. Many signs in the
picket line were directed to the
Legislature calling for more gen-
erous appropriations.
Weston reported that there was
strong faculty support for the
student demonstration.
Social Responsibility
Prof. Leonard Moss, chairman of
WSU's anthropology and sociology
departments, commented, "I am
very pleased to see that the stu-
dents show some sense of social
action and social responsibility."

Hatcher, following advice from
Dean Allan Smith of the Law
School, stressed that "students on
this campus must be free from
external direction to limit inva-
sions of their rights."
Lewis Cites Council Plan
A statement read by Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis pointed out that when the
Regents had approved the revised
Council Plan in 1959 they had at
the same time.approved therules
and regulations setting forth the
proper functions of Council.
At that time the Regents had
delegated the power to enforce
rules and regulations regarding
student organizations to SGC.
Particular emphasis was placed
yesterday on SGC's authority to
enforce Regental bylaw 2.14, which
prohibits all forms of discrimina-
tion within the University.
Regents' Right
President H a t c h e r reiterated
that the question had always been
whether or not the Regents had
the right to delegate the authority
to enforce such rules to SGC or
any other body-not approval cf
a n y particular administrative
method for implementing SGC's
The validity of the Harris Re-
port, by which SGC plans to es-
tablish. a membership judge to
determine violations of the bias
clause ruling, is a purely adminis-
trative matter, not of Regental
concern,'he added.
"Since through legal counsel it
has become clear that the Regents
are fully within their rights to
delegate the responsibility, it be-
comes the responsibility of the
Office of Student Affairs to set
down the appropriate method for
implementing the authority."
Veto Power
The Regents specifically noted
that all SGC action in this matter
was subject to the approval of the
Vice-President for Student Affairs.
Regent Eugene B. Power of Ann
Arbor said that the Regents' ac-
tion "represented a step forward"
in ending discrimination.
Regent Allan Sorenson of Mid-
land agreed but stressed that the
step was not an end-point. "A
paper formality is not sufficient.
If this implementation fails, the
next logical step is to remove all
such discriminating organizations
from the campus."
The Regents hereby:
1) Declare that all actions
taken by the Student Govern-
ment Council in establishing
rules, withdrawing recognition
or imposing other sanctions
shall be subject to the veto of
the Vice-President for Student
2) Confirm the delegation of
authority to SGC to recognize
student organizations and to
withdraw recognition in im-
plementing the policy of Bylaw

Hillenbrand .Asks Aid
For U.S. Dental Health
American Dental Association Secretary Dr. Harold Hillenbrand
last night called upon "government at all levels" to share in the respon-
sibility for improving the nation's dental health.
Addressing the honors convocation of the dental school, he noted
that those who wish to socialize medicine "cannot be wholly aware of
of the traditional and historic role which is assigned to the govern-
ments of the individual states." He pointed out that states receive
federal aid for health, education'
and welfare, but only if these pro- _ SP RTS D.TATD
grams are acceptable to the states. PT ROUNDU

Student leaders expressed no

Regents' action to confirm the

SGC President Thomas Brown,
'63BAd, commented that the Re-
gents' action was "a more defini-
tive statement than I expected.
"But it is an excellent one for
two reasons: it is clear and flex-
ible. I'm very pleased with it."
Brown Applauds
The Regents' recognition of
fraternities and sororities as stu-
dent organizations, a point which
has been a major dispute in the
issue, didn't surprise Brown. "To
me, they are student organizations

with the Harris proposal as much
as possible," since it sets up a con-

Elkins Applauds
Like Brown, Panhellenic Asso-
ciation President Patricia Elkins,
'64, expressed little surprise at the
Regents' classification of fraterni-
ties and sororities as student or-
ganizations. It appeared to her
"the most likely ruling to come
from the Regents."
Miss Elkins said she was happy
the issue had finally been decided,
for "now everybody- knows where
he stands."
"I imagine that whatever Coun-
cil proposes to this end will be
fair," she said, but foresaw that

No Direct Programs
"Thus the federal government
does not provide any direct treat-
ment programs except for those
people over whom it has direct re-
sponsibility-such as military per-
sonnel, veterans and wards of gov-
"Therefore it is not likely that
this pattern will change in the
