Seventy-Six Years of Editorial Freedom





Picking the University's next
President is turning out to be a
lot like a blind date: you don't
quite know what you're getting
into in the first place and you
change your ideas a lot as you go
At least that's the impression
one gets by talking to the Re-
gents and the members of their
two advisory committees-student
and faculty-most closely involv-
ed in the selection process.
All three groups are now paring
down the great number of names
they have been considering for the
presidency and are refining the
criteria they will use to make
their final decisions, by the early

months of next year if the Re-
gents' plans aren't delayed.
Authority in the selection pro-
cess is like a three-cornered pyra-
mid. At each lower corner is an
advisory committee, one of stu-
dents, one of faculty and one of
alumni. They are due to pass their
conclusions up to the peak, to the
Regents, in some form this fall.
The operation of the selection
process, however, is more like a
ring, with the advisory committees
all doing their own investigating
and passing around their results
and tentative conclusions to one
another and to the Regents.
There are two basic tasks in
which the committees are engag-
ed. They are, to different degrees
and fairly independently of one
another, analyzing the University

In an attempt to better under-
stand what sort of a man its next
President sholud be. In addition
they are screening candidates' re-
cords to provide the Regents with
a list of recommendations some-
time this fall.
"What you get is a continual
process of adding new names to
the list and taking old names
from it," says the English depart-
ment's Arthur M. Eastman, chair-
man of the faculty advisory com-
nittee. It is this process that
will eventually result in the com-
mittees' lists of their "ideal" can-
To aid the advisory committee
in their research on candidates'
backgrounds the Regents have set
up a staff office under the direc-
tion of Prof. Howard Peckham,

head of the Clements Library.
There, a secretary and a research
assistant prepare preliminary dos-
siers giving bibliographical and
biographical sketches of anyone in
whom committees are interested.
Peckham's staff also passes in-
formation which one committee
has requested to both other com-
mittees and to the Regents, thus
ensuring the ring-like approach to
the selection process.
Life for the committees so far
has been full of what Alfred Con-
ard of the Law School, a faculty
advisory committee member, calls
"growing pains." When the Re-
gents set up the committees they
purposely gave them very general
goals and structures to ensure that
they could advise in any way they

But along with freedom came
a batch of what Robert Briggs,
chairman of the Regents' working
committee, calls "five - minute
problems." The relationships of
the advisory committees to one an-
other and to the Regents had to
be worked out pretty much by trial
and error.
To be sure, there are no major
grumblings from anyone. Yet, as
advisory committee members read-
ily admit, no actions of a really
controversial nature have been
taken. What will happen then is
a problem which one faculty mem-
ber says "we haven't really faced
up to yet."
Briggs feels his major function
currently is ironing out such
areas of disagreement which he
says "we may well expect."

What sort of a man do the Re-i
gents want to come out of all this?l
Briggs emphasizes that any pros-e
pective president must be an edu-
cator, preferably with a PhD, who
is good at public relations work.1
Many advisory committee mem-t
bers are interested in a candi-
date's health and his age-it takess
several years for a president to
learn just what his job entails, andt
he has to be in condition to run1
the University for many years aft-
er that.
Marriage also enters the pic-
ture. A candidate with a sociallyt
capable wife is clearly preferred tof
a bachelor.
There are a number of ques-z
tions still facing the Regents and
their advisors. Foremost in every-c
one's mind is just when the nextf


president is to be appointed. The
Regents want to name a man
early enough to have him here for
several months before President
Harlan Hatcher retires in Decem-
ber, 1967. They realize that to do
this they must appoint a man
sometime around this coming
spring. In order to do that the
committees' recommenda-
tions would have to be completed
by this fall.
No decision has yet been made
on what form those recommenda-
tions will take. Here too, the Re-
gents have set out no guidelines
for the committees and decisions
must be made by discussion.
There is even talk on the stu-
dent committee of making a joint
faculty-student recommendation,

'U' Building
Structure To 3c4 tUgauai
Hold Offices NEWS WIRE

L.S.A. Will Move To
Old Administration
Building in Fall '68
The University is currently con-
structing an administration build-
ing to replace the present one.
The literary college will then be
able to use the space in the pres-
ent Administration Building for
classrooms and office use.?
The building is not being builtI
with state funds under Public Act
124 which requires state approval
of building plans, University rev-
enues which are currently set
aside annually for such purposesj
as athletic housing and adminis-
trative and service buildings will
be used to finance the project.
These revenues are allocated ac-
cording to priorities stated in a
three-year budget projection, ac-
cording to James Brinkerhoff, di-
rector of plant extension.
Part of Program
The total cost of the building is
estimated at $2.5 million. Vice-
President for Business and Fi-
nance Wilbur K. Pierpont said a
portion of this will be bonded.
The new building is a further
step in the removal of adminis-
trative and non-teaching func-
tions from the Central Campus.
Other steps in this program have
included the transfer of the Plant
Services from Forest Ave. to the
Hoover St. area, the general busi-
ness offices (purchasing, account-
ing, payroll, etc.) from the Ad-
ministration Building last Febru-
ary to the Hoover-Green St. area,
and the transfer from the Central
Campus to the former Argus
Building of the Bureau of School
Services, the Audio-Visual Educa-
4 tion Center and other groups.
New Location
The new administration build-
ing will occupy the southeast cor-
ner of the Jefferson-Thompson St.
intersection, and is scheduled for
completion during 1967-68.
The public metered parking lot
on the construction site will be
moved across Thompson St. to an
area south of the parking struc-
ture now occupied by homes
which are to be demolished soon.
Additional public metered spaces
also will be made available north
of the Student Activities Build-
There is speculation here and in
Lansing that a portion of the
funds will come from the $55 mil-
lion campaign. However there is
no official confirmation on this.
There is still some doubt as
to whether the proposed $2.5 mil-
lion allotted for construction of
the new administration building
also includes the cost of removing
the parking lot now on the con-
struction site to the housing area
which will be demolished soon.

JAKARTA, INDONESIA-ABOUT 20,000 Indonesian students
unrolled anti-Sukarno banners in Jakarta yesterday at a rally
addressed by Gen. Abdul Haris Nasution, one of the nation's mil-
itary leaders. Troops ordered them to furl the banners "to preserve
tranquility," as an officer phrased it.
Student leaders said, however, they would conduct anti-
Sukarno demonstrations shortly, although the Congress stripped
President Sukarno of power this week.
Nasution, head of the Congress, told the students no one was
truly satisfied with the congressional decisions but the people's
sovereignty had been restored to them.
WASHINGTON-THE PENTAGON, running into a lag in
Army enlistments, revised its draft calls sharply upward yester-
day for July and August.
The July quota was raised by 2,000 to 28,500 and that for
August by 4,000 to 36,600. At the same time the Defense Depart-
ment asked the Selective Service System to bring in 31,300 men in
The calls are all for the Army, with no indication of a sim-
ilar lag in Navy, Marine and Air Force enlistments.
MICIIIGAN DRAFT BOARDS will be required to deliver an
additional 750 men for induction into the Army in July and
August, State Selective Service headquarters said yesterday in
Lansing, the Associated Press reported.
Col. Arthur Holmes, state Selective Service director, said the
additional call was due to increased manpower requirements
announced this week by the Defense Department.
The previous July call of 2,225 men has been increased by 300
for a total of 2,525.
The August call of 2,980 men will be increased by 450 for a
total of 3,430.
Holmes said local boards have been authorized to take mar-
ried men without children when needed.
Boards also have been ordered to tighten deferments and
screen men previously deferred for occupational or dependency

He will head the board for a one-year term.

instead of sending separate lists
of names to the Regents, as an
outgrowth of their fairly extensive
contacts with the faculty. Though
neither Regents nor faculty seem
to object to the idea, nothing def-
inite has yet been done about it.
What happens to the advisory
committees after they have made
their formal recommendations is
another moot point. No one has
said anything officially, but the
faculty and students both want to
stay around until the final deci-
sion is made. Briggs emphasizes
that the committees are free to
do anything they want and even
suggests that the committees may
have a role to play after their
"final" recommendations are turn-
ed in.
Mrs. Murphy
Undecided on
New Term
Speculation Starts
On Election of Two
Regents in November
Speculation is beginning as to
who the candidates will be in two
races for the Board of Regents
next November.
Regent Irene Murphy, one of
three Democrats on the board,
and Carl Brablec, a Republican,
are up for re-election. Brablec
announced last month that he will
not seek another term.
However, Mrs. Murphy said yes-
terday she has not yet reached a
decision on whether to seek an-
other term. Rumors have been
floating through the Democratic
party that she has decided against
running. Mrs. Murphy said she
should know by the end of the
Some sources say Democratic
party officials believe it is im-
portant for Mrs. Murphy to stay
on the board so she can help
choose the next University presi-
dent. They are also reported to be
coitfident that she can be re-
It appears that Theodore Sachs
is most likely to get the Demo-
cratic nomination for Brablec's
post. Sachs was the attorney for
August Scholle, prominent state
Democrat and president of the
state AFL-CIO, in the landmark
Scholle vs. Hare reapportionment
case decided by the U.S. Supreme
Court in 1962. Sachs is reported
to be favored by Scholle for the
nomination. However, s e V e r a
others are also known to be in-
terested in the bid.
If both Mrs. Murphy and Bra-
blec are not among the Regents
who make up the board that will
first meet next January and will
select the next University presi-
dent, the members of that board
will have collectively relatively
little experience as University Re-
For example, Regent Alvin Bent-
ley was just appointed to the
board by Gov. George Romney to
fill Eugene Power's seat. Regent
Allan Sorenson has missed many
board meetings and has therefore
been unable to take part in much
of the board's work.
Regent Robert Briggs joined the
board less than two years ago, in
November, 1964, and Regent Wil-
liam Cudlip has been on the board
since 1963.

City ToR.medyHousing Shortage

A recent federal grant of $35,-
000 will enable the city of Ann
Arbor to conduct a comprehen-
sive survey of the city's low-cost
housing needs. The study, expect-
ed to take six months, will open
the way for federal loans to fi-
nance low-rent housing projects.
Since last December the city has
provided a service to help low-in-
come residents obtain temporary
dwellings. As of May 15, about 12
families have received assistance
from the Independent Housing As-
sociation, a non-profit group seek-
ing to provide emergency dwell-
ings costing as near to 25 per
cent of the family's income as
Granting of a request for a
federal loan to provide 200 low-
cost dwellings - some new, some
rehabilitated structures and some
leased from private owners and
rented to low-income families -
should follow the collection of spe-
cific data through the newly-
commissioned housing survey.
Until now, estimates of low-cost
housing needs have been limited
to those compiled from studies
using census figures and informa-
tion that residents have volun-
teered to the Human Relations
Commission when seeking assist-
ance in finding emergency dwell-
ings from the Independent Hous-
ing Association.
One study based on census re-
ports has estimated that, as of
1960, there were at least 1800
"poor" Ann Arbor families-those
whose expenditures exceeded their
incomes. It stated that "a pro-

dwellings is underway, and if it units and continue, if the program
proves to be self-liquidating, can be self-sustaining, to ask for
Brown said the city will be en- annual federal contributions for
abled to apply for more federal analederaldcontributi n
funds, in proportion to what the whatever additional emergency
survey shows low-cost housing housing may be needed.

needs call for.
Another project, to be financed
with the aid of Section 23 of the
1965 Federal Housing Act, would
seek to remedy more immediate
housing needs. Under this pro-
gram, if the city can show both
a need for emergency dwellings
and property available for pur-
chase, it would be immediately eli-
gible for federal assistance.
Brown said that, initially, the
city will ask for money for 40

Brown illustrated the way the
program would work by giving an
example of a piece of property
costing $150 under consideration
for buying by the city. Govern-
ment funds would probably supply
approximately $55 of the amount.
Administrative expenses would add
$8 and profit-loss margin $3. The
total sum of $106 of expenses not
supplied by government funds
would then equal the amount
charged as rent to tenants.

Brown contended that the con-
struction of federally-financed
low-cost housing would appreci-
ably affect rent levels on the pri-
vate housing market.
The reason for this, he said,
was that the new housing projects
would not be serving people who
are eligible renters "on the hous-
ing market at the price that mar-
ket demands."
However, a survey by a Univer-
sity professor has shown that new
construction "would tend to force
'down the rents charged for low-
quality housing already in exist-
ence, and that this result would
also help to alleviate poverty."
