Members Must Consider
Panhel's Changg ole

iERE SHOULD BE hundreds of girls at the
University wbe are informed and interest-
enough to have an idea what Panhellenic
ht to be. Recent procedural tangles-and
r implications about the nature, structure
future of Panhellenic-should provide these
pie with food for thought.
he Panhel Executive Council's nomination
andidates for office deserves a searching.
nd lobk, not only by girls involved so far
by house representatives who will be voting
ally next Tuesday. They will elect one of two
ainees, chosen by the Executive Council from
eld of three petitioners last Sunday.
IE TWO FINAL CANDIDATES, presently
office-holders, are now members of Execu-,
Council; the unsuccessful petitioner is not.
?ne of the final candidates, as public rela-
is chairman, was in charge of elections.
lthough neither she nor the other Executive
ncil members petitioning participated in the
utssions or vote following petitioners' In-
niews, the elections director chaired the
rd of interviewers for the unsuccessful pe-,
mer.
anhellenic President Barbara Greenberg said
thought all three girls were qualified peti-
ers, with reservations about each. Since
had not served on Executive Council and
other two had, she said, experience was the
n distinguishing factor between them, Bar-
a said she saw no reason why a girl's role,
Executive Council member-even Public Re-
ns Chairman and Elections Chairman --
uld 'onflict with her role as petitioner for
aination; in fact, this often occurs. She
stioned the advisability of the elections
Irman-petitioner interviewing one of her,
is, but only if the interviewee was "uncom-
able" about it.
RBARA IS WORRIED about "bad faith."
Since a situation like this might occur any
r - and since there are no institutional
ins to equalize this loaded chain of circum-
ices -- she thinks criticism demonstrates
iaging lack of 'confidence in the officers of
hellenic.
ut since the relatively few people involved
the only ones formally aware of the cross-
of roles involved, constructive criticism is
bited. If criticism from the inside is to be
with cries of "bad faith!" it is likely that
e negative comment will be heard - and
e positive change will result.
,is unfair to put an officer-petitioner in a
tion where her interests conflict -because,;
'ever impartial she is, observers may infer
opposite. However concrete the benefits of
involvement in elections, the liabilities
a to outweigh them.
is unfair to put a petitioner in a position'
re possible interest conflicts on the part
an interviewer might harm her case, and
a give her the option of concealing what-
"discomfort" she might feel or being ac-
d of "bad faith."
OOD FAITH" is not an attitude that may
be assumed in any situation. In this par-
lar procedure, it is dangerously naive to
look the possibility of question concerning
motives and roles of those involved. Acting
,11 good faith-even idealistically-it would
be possible to suggest changes in tlie pres-
setup. When an organization loses -its ca-

pacity to accommodate criticism,-difference of
opinion, fresh thought, it becomes ingrown and
sterile.
The role of Panhellenic at the University is
changing. Campus affairs and' student govern-
ment will focus on the issue of membership
selection for years to come, dealing in areas
overlapping with Panhellenic's concerns. High
time Panhel faced and considered the problems
of an organization which is no longer a self-
concerned social administrative unit but a poli-
tical force 'on campus. A political force it will
be, willy-nilly. The president will continue to
sit on SOC, various houses will deal with the
SaC Committee on Membership, various indi-
viduals will represent. Panhel in campus poli-
tics. Should Panhel regret the passing of the
unexamined life, exert itself to retain the "club-
by" atmosphere, abstain from overtly political'
activities to avoid being smirched with the un-
pleasant corollaries of practical politics?
EVEN IDEALISTIC POLITICS--marked by
free thought, open vigorous discussion,
frank differences in values-sometimes creates
tension. Sometimes good faith between indi-
viduals suffers when all aspects of a question,
all implications of a situation, are exposed and
discussed. Good faith is certainly tested when
the bases for group behavior and unity are.
questioned. But what' is good faith if it ;can-
not survive in a free, critical atmosphere?
Nominations are over. Elections, however, are
still to come. Constructive thought can and
should be applied to the elections procedure by
all members of Panhellenic-Executive Coun-
cil, house representatives, and individual soror-
ity girls.
House representatives are chosen at random;"
one girl from each class is suggested as the only
criterion of selection. Why? These voting dele-
gates will choose next year's Panhel officers
on the basis of a platform and a speech-no
more. Some flavor of politics might well enter
into Panhellenic elections.
'VUHY, FOR INSTANCE, should not each can-
didate visit each sorority, present her plat-
form and answer questions from the floor?
Why should there not be some dissent be-
tween the views of the candidates, rather than'
simple disagreements as to means of implemen-
tation? Why shouldn't this difference of opinion
be open and honest? In an atmosphere of 'real
understanding and coordination, of good faith
that is not artificial but natural, the system can
take it.
If debate anddisagreement withinthe soror-
ity system can't be aired without creating enmi-
ty between houses and harming the cooperative
spirit of the association, this spirit of good
faith must have shaky foundations.
I DON'T BELIEVE IT DOES. The results of:
examination and criticism on the sorority
system at Michigan have been fruitful for the
University and for Panhellenic this year. If
they are to continue to be so, Panhellenic will
have to. adjust to interaction with the outside
community, not just within itself. If under-
standing of {a basic living philosophy, coopera-
tion to make this living experience worthwhile,
and good faith based on mutual respect and
shared interests are realities, the adjustment
will be smooth.
-JEAN SPENCER

To the Editor:
IN THE MIDST of the Quid-
rangle controversy, recently re-
newed by the presentation of Mr.
Scheub's report, it strikes one that
this is the opportunity for some
good constructive criticism and
suggestions as to exactly what may
be done to improve the residence
halls. The issues involved in this
situation are numerous and for
individuals to assert their; opinion
on a basis of misconstrued fac-
tual support is to merely com-
plicate the purpose of this attempt
to remedy the quadrangle dilemna.
The value of this report of Mr.
Scheub's stems not only from its
content (Since I feel this type
of document would have a more
realistic method of assessing stu-
dent opinion than the views pre-
'sented to Dean Rea and Vice-
President Louis' as they spend as
little time as possible visiting each
house.) but also from ' the con-
structive criticism of the people
who care to learn enough about
the problem to make constructive
comments. The embittered "quad-
die" and the sneering Greek will,
to be sure, have more than their
share of comments to make but
the impulsiveness of these re-
marks wil make their value doubt-
ful.
* * *.
IN HIS APPROACH to the prob-
lem Mr. Sigman has given every
opportunity to drown the name of
residence halls at Michigan in the
mud of negative thinking and sen-
sationalism. I'm sure he realizes
this and yet I also feel that this
means to an end was justified by
the seemingly -aloof attitude of
administration.
The constructive and lasting
value of this outburst will be bas-
ed on the constructive criticism
that will be offered, and not by
the weeping and gnashing of
teeth of the anti-quad faction of
our student body. Complaints are
certainly very legitimate in many
areas of the residence halls sys-
tem. If a complaint is justified
and premeritation has formulated
a means of remedying the problem
then by all means express your
sentiments somewhere where they
may have ,an effect on the prob-
lem. If enough unified and con-
structive thought and effort are
put in the residence halls .at this
time they are certainly going to
be better residences in which to
live in the future.
-John Greene, '62
Senioriis.**
To the Editor:
S ENIORITIS: THE DISEASE,
which according to the admin-
istration is the affliction of any
senior student who voices 'an in-
telligent criticism, in a construc-
tive manner, toward any archaic
set of administrative views and
practices.
Having become violently infect-,
ed with this disease I hope to
wander the campus and haunts
of students, regents, and alumni
to spread everywhere its terrible
sympton-insight.
An observation is in order about
this malady. It takes till the senior
year for a person to realize, the
full impact and utilityror useless-
ness of some of the administration
of the University.
* * ,
THE DEVELOPING furor over
the conditions of residence halls
is getitng into high gear. I feel
by this letter I can reach those
sincerely interested in the prob-
lem and supply them with a few
leads. First I must say I can
substantiate any statement put
forth here. Second I am speaking
as an individual and not as a.
spokesman for any group or or-
ganization that I am a member
of.
In the school year 58-59, 1 was a

resident of Winchell House in
West Quad. John Hale, now as-
sistant Dean of Men in charge of
residence halls, was then resident
director there.
We had two men in our house
that were uncontrollable and con-
tinually disrupting the other resi-
dents. One was a "full ride" ath-
lete. Both were convicted in Ann
Arbor courts for theft and put
in jail for a week-end, then given
a years probation. They had been
selling the merchandise in the
house.
* * *
THEY WERE EVEN more un-
controllable after this. All appeals
to Hale resulted in no action. That
is none except benevolent coun-
seling and admonitions to the
rest of us to help "reform" the
boys and be nice to them, mean-
while we were supposed to keep'
our doors locked and hope like
hell for the best. Seeing they were
getting away with everything due
to the soft attitude taken, they
continued their pattern of be-
havior.
Representatives' of the house
council repeatedly asked for re-
moval of these men as did the
staff of the house.
After a couple months of grow-
ing disruptions and increasing

Hale got a promotion for his
ability and now handles all men's
residence halls. The situation is so
poor in the Quad, seniors and even
juniors are given staff positions
because not enough graduate stu-
dents stick with it; or get all
they can take early in the game.
Many more stay because of finan-
cial reasons than for the great
benefits of Quadrangle living.
-Lionel J. Gatien
New Approach.--
To the Editor:
WITH REGARD TO the recent
controversy over the Scheub
report, it strikes: me that so far
an intelligent and perceptie ap-
proach Ito the situation has been
completely lacking. Therefore I
should now like to enlighten some
foggy minds.;
It is appalling, to note that the
Seniors Editors, in a front-page
editorial, should, commend such
an' obviously, unethical action as
that taken by Herbert Sigman.'
To work for an organization and
at the same time voice loud dis-
content with. it, as Sigman has
done, is to diminish other people's
rfpect for you-however valid
your criticisms may be; and in
the Residence Halls the respect in
which the Resident Advisor Is held
is the basis for his effectiveness in
working with and for the residents.
If.J were the Resident Director cft
East Quadrangle, Herbert Sigman
would now be looking for a job--.
not because I agreed or disagreed
with his opinions, but because' of
the means he chose to bring them
to light. The Senior Editors, in
commending Sigman's course of
action, show only their own poorly
set standards of ethical conduct.
Now let us look at -the report
itself-or more generally,Istudent
complaint with the Residence Hall
system. In the first place, no in-
tensive report, no IQC-Student-
Faculty-Administration conference
is necessary to make Residence
Halls Staff and Administration
aware of student complaint. Any-
one acquainted with the Resi-
dence Hall system and has a
minimal amount of gray matter
between his ears (this requirement
excludes many of the residents)
can sit down and draw up a list
of the failings of the system. It
is ridiculous to suppose that the
Dean of Men's office, or the busi-
ness office, has been shocked to
see the list of student complaint
revealed in the Scheub report. In
the second place, it is necessary
not only to look at student com-
plaint, but to look at the students
making the complaints. And here
we ,note an interesting facet of a'
broad trend:
* * *
THERE IS A small, self-styled
group of liberals furiously at work
in our student government on cam-
pus, our Resident Halls, and on
our student publications, who are
so busy t waving the banner of
Student Oppression that they are
utterly carried away from the
realm of common sense. The aver-
age bystander, listening to this
vociferous minority, would be led
to the conclusion that our Uni-
versity Administration was oc-.
cupied with the weighty problem'
of how to make students miser-
able. Specifically, with regard to
the Residence Halls, we note, ac-
cording to the Letter to the Edi-
tor of one Amos Perry the other
day, that Assistant Dean of Men
in charge of Residence Halls John
Hale is a total incompetent whose
primary function is to brush aside
181-page reports. Mr. Perry's pro-
found freshman wisdom leads him
even farther: "What does (Hale)
know about how a-report of this
type should be compiled? Has he'
lived in these , .. Residence Halls
for six years as Herb (Sigman)
has?"

It is difficult to overestimate
theh ignorance shown by Mr.
Perry's words John Hale has lived
in and worked for Residence Halls
before Mr. Perry was out of grade,
school. He has more sound know-
ledge about students and Resi-
dence Halls than all of us put
together. He has always shown
himself to be a friend to the stu-
dent and a conscientious adminis-
trator. But unfortunately facts
such as these mean less than
nothing to Mr. Perry, who is too
concerned about his own wants.
THIS, THEN, IS our typical Op-
pressed Student: a freshman,
"forced .to live in the quads," who
has "dozens of complaints." Does
this individual for a moment sup-
pose that people have no com-
plaints about him? I would like
to ask all our Oppressed Students
to mentally place themselves at
the desk of Assistant Dean of
Men Hale, or-of Business Manager
for Residence Halls Leonard A.
Schaadt. Now imagine yourself
(dear student) confronaed by these
hundreds of students who want
this, want that, want the other
thing. They want the rules re-
moved, yet are of insufficient
maturity to conduct themselves
like responsible individuals even
in tn n- r% ofCh-1Ao ..

it will come raining down from
Heaven. Would you (dear Op-
pressed Student) as a responsible
administrator, feel secure in giv-
ing in to their demands? Would
you?
The entire attitude of this self-:
styled minority group of Op-
pressed Students is absurd. They
complain loudly about the ab-
rogations of their rights and pri-
vileges, and yet they are totally
incapable of assuming any de-
gree of responsibility. I would
submit to these individuals that
they are privileged to come to this
University and are privileged to
live in the Residence Halls. They
are not required to do so. They
can go to schooldelsewhere, if they
wish (and relieve us of their pres-,
ence). But I pity them when they
are earning their living out in
society. Their "all take, no give"
attitude will trip them up any-
where they may want to go, and
they will say to themselves "What
did I do?" when people shun
their company.
s s s
IN CONCLUSION, 1 would be,
the last to say that the -Residence
Hall system is without problems,
serious problems. I have lived in'
them for four years, and have
worked in their student govern-'
ment-not out of obligation, but
by choice. I have seen many prob-
lems dissolve when worked out
between mature, conscientious stu-
dents and administrators. Many'
problems still remain, and the
Scheub report is nothing more
than an inane reiteration of them.
What the Scheub reports fails to
mention is the biggest problem of
all: How to do away with 'the'
immature and misguided Oppress-
ed Student who makes up too
large a fraction, however small,
of our Residence Hall population.
-David L. Cation
Lady Macbeth*
To the Editor::
AM PLEASED TO see that after-
many years of protest, taking
variously the forms of meetings,
letters, active and Passive rebel-
lion, and riot, that a substantial
rigorous criticism of the Univer-
sity Residence Halls has warranted
some attention. Mr. Sigman and
Mr. Scheub are to be congratulat-
ed for forming so effectively many
of the complaints which have been
'voiced continually over the years
by residents of this inmature and
backward living system.
There is no reason at this time
to recapitulate the numerous fail-
ings of the Residence Halls in the
face of the extensive coverage of
the Scheub-Sigman report. In-
stead, I should like to emphasize
the problems which this report-
faces in its attempt to be effective
toward some administrative action.

THE FIRST AND loudest Lady
Macbeth of the residence halls,
according to Thursday's report in
this press, was John Hale, weaned
fromrthe very residence halls
which prompted this report. Hale
cannot be expected to give reason-
able or uninvolved consideration
to an attack, as empirical asthis
one may be, on the home of his
former loyalties. As an ex-staff
member who knew Hale well when
he saw action in the residence
halls directly, I can speak from
personal experience. Hale is a'
small man with narrow objectives
who followed the example of others
before him, in using the residence
halls as but a stepping .stone to
higher administrative. achieve-
ment. Never has he had the goals
of the student in mind, never did
he dare detour from the rigid
paternalistic policies set down by
higher adherents to a set of ir-
relevant rules.
I. donot wish to set up.Hale as
scapegoat in this issue. Hale is
no stronger although perhaps
somewhat weaker than those who
have preceded him. I merely wish
to point up that the residence hall
system as Scheub and Sigman
have suggested, in no way meets
any ' objectives of the original,
Michigan House plan except those
forced, by the students upon the
administration, business office,
and food service, in order to,
quickly quiet those recurrent pro-
tests whichhthreaten the tran-
quillity of the water's surface.
* * *.
I AM ENCOURAGED that per-
haps with the relentless pressure
of a sympathetic press, an end
may come of the abuse of students'
in the residence halls for other
aims, that some appointments in
the administration of the resi-
dence halls will come to be con-
sidered by the appointees as more
than a slow and dirty, but, sure
way to reach a secure administra-
tive job. ,I know that there are
and have been devoted adminis-
trators in the residence halls who
see their job as important and
whose high ideals have gone equal-
ly unconsidered as those of the
sincere authors of the report and
the students represented in. it.
These few will recognize the truth
of my accusations. They have, in
general, kept silent' in fear of their
jobs or left the residence halls,
as I did, in angry protest.
Perhaps some of these staff
members will' be, as I have been,
encouraged by the direct honesty
of the current report; and will
finally speak out against 'the cold'
lack of consideration, the injus-
tices, and the selfish motivation
which are apparent in the admin-r
istration of the residence,,halls.
Mr. Scheub's final statement

classically bears repetition in view
of its penetrating accuracy; "...
if the residence halls are indeed
stifling individual initiative by
chocking student opposition, stu-
dent criticism, student protest,
student suggestion, then the resi-
dence halls have indeed become
oppressive, paternalistic, domi-
neering."
Mr. Scheub, these are indeed, at
least peculiar adjectives to arise
from a student body, as, pleased
with its living conditions as the
administration is.
-Name Withheld
Candidates Rebut. .
To the Editor:
XE THANK the Senior Editors
for their interest and concern
in the present SGC elections; we
regret, however, that your editor-
ial sometimes blends fact with
vagueness, innunendo, and false
statements.
On vagueness: What do you
mean when you say Ken McEl-
downey has tried to be "all things
to all people?" Do you mean that,
he has contradicted himself dur-
ing the campaign or something
less obvious? If the former, yoir
claim is false; if the latter, why
didn't you use more precise and
less suggestive language?
On innuendo: You say that Bill
Gleason's stand on discrimination
is not clear and point this out, in
part, by' quoting a sorority leaflet
published in his behalf. You Im..-
ply that he was responsible for
the publication of this leaflet.
Can you prove it?
On false statements: You claim
that although Roger Seasonwein
has "been involved with many
motions and programs, he has
originated none of these." If he
did not originate, for example,
the Freshman Reading and Dis-
cussion PrograM, who did? Are
you implying that he gets his
ideas from others and then par-
rots them in his motions? Know-
ing Mr. Seasonwein and his de-
bate as you' must, do you honest-
ly believe that-he has merely been
parroting other people's ideas-
while on the Council?
We point out. these errors as
examples-and there are more--
in an editorial which was' not
written as carefully as it should
have been. We hope that future
Senior 'Editors will evaluate "S0
candidates but that- they will take
greater. care to avoid vagueness,
innunendo, and false statements.

Gleason,, Brian Glick, Mark

Letter of Intent' Quarrel

1H S0-CALLED letter of intent in regard
o college enrollment of a prospective ath-
has caused considerable controversy in its
eer.
signed letter of intent simply means that
igh school graduate has indicated his in-
ion to attend the school whose letter he
endorsed.
he Big Ten calls its letter a "tender" (it's
contract" in the South) and Conference
Dols vie to have a. boy sign their tender.
s prohibits the 'other nine Conference
Dols from even approaching him. The win-
g school knows that the boy chose it' on
its other than financial aid, because the
Ten has a standard system based on need,
set-up by the Conference office.
[F IMPARTIAL OFFICE sends a financial
form, to be filled out by the boy's family,
indicate to what school or schools the
a should be sent. The Big Ten office in-
ns the school as to how much it can offer
boy to cover the rest of his basic costs
d on the Conference "grant-in-aid" plan.,
se costs are for room, board, books, tuition
fees. A student in the upper quarter of
graduating class can receive a full ride, not
d on need.
nce a boy has signed a Big Ten "tender,"
s still approachable by any other school in
country. These schools, many under the
!A financial plan, are able to give two more
ncial benefits than the Big Ten; 1) they
't base their aid on need. and 2) they can'

these will not be the prospective entrant's
criteria. However, in many cases it apparently
is.
A national letter of intent would help to
alleviate the raiding that exists, not only in
the Big lien, but in other conferences as well.
The NCAA proposed to let each school list a
hypothetical 'number of "untouchables, with
the particular prospects named and signed.
being unapproachable by any other school.
The proposal was defeated at a recent NCAA
convention, with the strength of the small
college vote' a key factor. As the smalled in-
stitutions can't compete with the bigger ones
in terms of quantity, they didn't want a bigger
school to have a list that could not be touched.
A CASE IN point involves a boy presently on
the Michigan campus, who, had originally
signed a Michigan- tender, but then was
"bought" by a small college, only to return to
Michigan after a 'year. The results were simply
that the boy lost a year of varsity eligibility,
and that a large school education and a chance,
to make a name for himself athletically out-
weighed the flimsy financial aspects.
Keeping his original monetary choice in
mind, it is obvious, that the smaller schools
don't want a national letter of intent so they
may continue to raid the big schools and
wrest one or two prospects a year from them.
Since the small institutions outnumber the
bigger ones almost 10-1 in the NCAA, with
each having one vote, it appears that such
legislation will never pass.

THE CLEANEST DIVISION be-
tween Student Government
Council candidates this year is:
not an ideological one.
There is little disagreement
among the contenders on any spe-
cific issue. They agree that non-
academic evaluations are unde-
sirable; they agree that the Uni
versity has a serious problem with
driving and parking regulations;
they agree that changes are need-
ed in Regents' Bylaw 8.11, dealing
with restrictions on lecturers in
University buildings.
At least, those who are talking
agree.
e S *
FOR THE BIGGEST difference
between candidates is the dis-
tinction between those who know'
what issues and problems there
are, and those who simply do not
have any background.
Two of the candidates have never
been to an SGC meeting, and
evidently have no prior knowledge
of the issues confronting the
Council either now or in the past
year.
One candidate's main platform
plank is that if he is elected he
will obstruct action. He claims
that SGC has overstepped its
bounds in delivering opinions on
issues of national character.
Function G. of the SGC Plan,
revised as of 1959, says the Coun-
cil is "To serve as the official
representative of the University
student community in expressing
opinion and interest .. . to the
outside student and world com-
munity"-
A THIRD CANDIDATE makes
but one issue statement in his
platform, a personal condemnation
of non-academic evaluations such
as the ones used by the chemistry
department. He urges that they be
abolished.
SGC asked the chemistry de-
.partment to discontinue use of the
evaiation cardi in a resolution

more knowledgeable candidates is
striking. Their acute awareness of.
problem areas and their willing-
ness to improve conditions is evi-
dent from 'the platforms.
They are the kind: of Council
members the University needs, no
matter where .they fall on a,
conservative-liberal continuum,.
