To Lure Faculty Reach

Increasing offers to lure faculty away from the University reached
an "especially heavy" number this year, but the quality and quantity
of the teaching staff maintained "relative constancy," Vice-President
ahd Dean of Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss said last night.

Deans Consider
Austerity Plans

Niehuss calculated that about 20 per cent of the faculty, ranking
assistant professor and above, had received offers of which he was
cognizant. This amounts to approximately 225 persons.
Daily Survey
Surveys by The Daily indicated 205 offers last year and 200 in
Dean Roger Heyns of the literary college called the increasing
numbers of offers "part of our life." He said the quantity has been
rising each year since he became dean in 1958.
Inadequate Appropriation
Both Niehuss and Heyns tied the losses to inadequate appro-
priations from tte state legislature and the growing competition for
good faculty caused by a shortage in the ranks of university teachers.
"The austerity budget doesn't do us any good," Heyns said. "but
the pressure on the faculty is caused more by the cumulative effect
of deficiencies in the appropriations."
Natural Phenomena
Niehuss cited the "natural phenomena" of a growing mobility of
faculty across the nation. "Special attention has been trained on
the University because of the bad publicity given the state's economic
troubles. Thus, our faculty get more offers."

In the light of the deficient appropriations and
petition, Niehuss said "the holding power of the Univ
remarkable. Faculty loyalty is very high."
Fail To Report
Because of this loyalty, many faculty men of
elsewhere never report them to the department ch
deans, Heyns emphasized. "There is also a large and i
of distinguished professors who would get many of

Nearly everyone here could get an offer from a goo(
where in the country.
While regretting the loss of outstanding profes
left, Heyns said the University was "very fortunate" in
fine appointments" to replace them.
"Our concern does not end with the men who hav

The professional schools are reacting only tentatively to the pos-
sible consequences of an "austerity" budget this year, but most of
them foresee some problems.
Faculty problems, hiring new personnel and cutbacks in planned
programs are the situations most often-mentioned by the schools'
The music school will have to wait another year for its new
building for although this has high priority in University plans, there
will not be enough money for it, Dean James B. Wallace says.
The proposed building would centralize the school from the parts
of 12 buildings now in use and provide more space for practicing than
do the present overcrowded facilities.
Maintenance will be cut back. "Even housekeeping will have to
be curtailed," he said.
Also postponed is a projected musical theory program.
The austerity budget will postpone a projected musical theory
program and will not permit a necessary expansion in faculty. With
no additional instructors, class sections will be increased in size and
a half a dozen courses will not be taught.
With the exception of two retiring professors, no faculty have
left the school. However, three have been approached by other col-
leges, he said.
There will be no major changes in the law school, but it will be
crimped in many areas, Dean Alen Smith says.
"The school made commitments for new teaching staff members
before the blow fell, and this will require additional funds. The new
personnel were necessitated by increased enrollments and the retire-
ment of two professors."
One teaching associate for the required course on legal research
will be cut. However, the curriculum will not be. .
Three law faculty members have been approached by other in-
stitutions. "Any long-range failure to provide adequate salary in-
creases is going to make it difficult to keep and recruit faculty."
Competition for faculty members is keen. "It does not even take
a year to put the school behind cmpletely."
Enrollment and classes will hold the line next year as a result of
the budget. However, applications have increased 15 per cent over last
Smith' was especially critical of the Legislature's failure to ap-
£propriate $17,500 for acquiring books for the legal research library,
saying that "the amount available is inadequate to maintain a satis-
factoryE research library."
Engineering.. .
The final effect of the austerity budget on engineering college
personnel will not be known .until the Regents take final action on it,
Dean Stephen F. Atwood says.
"Each year, and this one is no exception, members of the staff
receive. tempting offers from other schools and industry. This, to
some degree, is a measure of the quality of the faculty," he said.
Business Administration..
/For ,the business administration school. the austerity budget will
put a damper on innovations, salary increases; and faculty morale,
Dean P~loyd Bond says.
Without salary increases the school will experience increasing
difficulty in holding men. One man is definitely leaving, three more

Seventy Years of Editorial Freedom

S tresses
University students share the
rights and responsibilities of all
citizens, an prominent American
liberal claimed last night.
Harold Norris, who heads the
Detroit branch of the American
Civil Liberties Union, believes "stu-
dents don't lose the rights of free
speech, association and belief be-
cause they become members of a
university community"
Norris stressed his beliefs in a
speech at a closed meeting of the
University chapter of the Amer-
citizens, a prominent American
can Association of University
"I believe the 14th amendment
prevents the university from deny-
ing these rights to students," Nor-
his stated in an abstract of his
He cited the President's Com-
mitte on Higher Education report
in 1947 which argues that the best
way to build citizenship for a de-
mocracy is to enable students to
exercise the rights and responsi-
bilities of all citizens.
Norris and the Detroit ACLU
were active in the Wayne State
University controversy over a
speaker ban, prohibiting Commun-
ists to speak on the WSU campus.
The ACLU filed a brief as a
"friend of the court" when the
university, after lifting its ban,
denied use of the McGregor Me-
morial to the Global Book Forum
because of alleged Communist af-
filiations of the forum's secretary.
Police Arrest
CORE Group
Birmingham police arrested a
group of Nashville Congress on
Racial Equality members yester-
day after bus drivers refused to
take them out of town. h
These eight students-seven Ne-
groes and one white-and six other
Negroes arrested at the bus station
were taken into protective custody
without charges. Police Chief
Jamie Moore told the Nashville
group, "It is dangerous for you
to stay here."
The students intended to ride
the bus from Birmingham to New
Orleans to complete the "Freedom
Ride" which ended there in vio-
lence on Sunday.
The Nashville students' arrest
came slightly more than an hour
after they were stymied in efforts
to ride a bus out of town.
When they went out on the load-
ing platform for their bus, the
driver said, "if you get on, I will
not drive the bus"
A few moments earlier the police
said they had received a bomb
threat, but the danger period
given in the warning expired with-!
out incident.
When the bus arrived from
Nashville, police, forewarned of a
possible incident, met it on the
outskirts of Birmingham. They
arrested two members of the group

In committee of the whole last night, Student Government
Council discussed a motion favoring confidential reports on students
living in the quadrangles.
The motion, introduced by Inter-Quadrangle Council President
Thomas Moch, '62, also recommends that the existence and nature
of these reports, known as "pink slips" made out by the quad edu-
cational staff, be made known to residents.
