terday. They are, rather, guide-
lines to be used by high school
counselors for channeling applica-
cations, he said.
The statement explains that
since the University does not have
space to admit all out-of-state
freshman applicants who may be
"fully-qualified," the admissions
office encourages applications
from only those students who meet
additional requirements.
In the eyes of the admissions
office, the statement explains, a
normally "fully-qualified" student
is one who :
-earns a "B" average or above
in a college preparatory program,
especially in courses closely relat-
ed to his chosen program of stu-
dies;
-does not permit his current
academic record to show a decline;
-earns a total score (Verbal+
Math) of 1000 or above on the
College Board Scholastic Aptitude,
Test (550 in Math for Engineering
and Architecture applicants);
-presents a strong personal rec-
ord, including such qualities as a
serious attitude toward study, self-
reliance, and creative interests
and
-receives favorable recommen-
dations and comments from his
high school counselor or principal.
Other Limits
However, because of the limita-
tions. on out-of-state enrollment,
the statement lists additional
qualifications that should be pos-
sessed by out-of-state applicants
for the various University schools.
For the literary college the ad-
ditional qualifications are:
-ranking in the top 10 per
cent of high school class in a col-

Lssprin
The R e g e n ts initiated the1
awards program last spring, after1
surveys conducted by a top-rank-
ing Detroit school administrator
revealed that there were a "pa-
thetically small number" of Ne-
groes, about 200 full-time stu-
dents, at the University.
Along with special academic
and personal counseling, thisf
year's 70 freshman award win-
ners received grants of from $1804
to $1650 apiece.
Ne'arly all the students will"
work during the summer to earn'
money for their sophomore year;
the remainder of the money they
need will be supplied by the Uni-
versity in the form of scholar-
ships, loans and part-time jobs.

quirements.
Jackson said that there area
tentative plans for this summer's
program to involve the new award
winners with some of those who
participated in last summer's pro-
gram and with other educationally
deprived students who could also
benefit from the program.
Jackson said that in the first
year of the program it was much
easier to recruit applicants for
the opportunity awards from the
large and nearby Detroit area
rather than scout the entire state.
As the program becomes more
widely known, there will be less
of a necessity to recruit students
and more students from different
areas of Michigan will apply for
the awards, he predicted.
Three - hundred applications,
more than half of them from out-I
side the Detroit area, have alreadyI
been received for next fall's
awards, he said.

The regents also overturned a
two-to-one vote by the Academic
Senate to postpone the presently-
scheduled 1965 conversion to the
quarter system to a year later.
Sheldon Wolin of California's
political science department, whoa
made the proposal, said, "we need-

WATER POLLUTION:
' Proxmire Introduces Fishing Proposal

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a sec-
ond part of a two-part series on
research in the Great Lakes.

Wis) asked the Senate yesterday'

The Great Lakes are the larg-
est masses of fresh water in the
world, yet there is an increas-
ing probability that these masses
may become polluted, he said.
Chandler proposed that the so-
lution to the problem is a "mas-
ter plan" to coordinate all the
water resources in the Great Lakes
region.I
Although this proposal may
appear extremely simple to imple-
ment, Chandler pointed out that
there were numerous intervening;
factors.'
No One Broadminded
In the first place, nobody is
broadminded enough to handle
such a plan. He said that each
one of the five Great Lakes ef-
fect one another. For political rea-
sons, creation of a master plan
by any one person would gener-
ate a conflict of interest.
Chandler feels that an imnar-
tial group such as a foundation
should undertake such a project.
The Great Lakes are important
to industry for the disposal of
wastes, he pointed out. Rightj
now, it is technically feasible to
treat wastes, that are emptied into
the lakes, in such a way to neu-
tralize their bad effects.
Why isn't it done? Because it
is too expensive.
Different Angle
Chandler, however, approachec
the subject of cost from a slightly
different angle than an indus-
trialist.
He maintains that the issue i-
not the cost of treating wastes
being dumped into the Great
Lakes, as well as rivers aril
streams which emoty into the
Great Lakes, but rather the cost
of not treating the wastes.
"The Great Lakes are not only
a source of drinking water. th"
are a recreational and indi atrial
area," he said. "How much wul
it cost to lose the Lakes as a
recreational area? How mu ',
would it cost the fisheries ari
other related industries to lose the
Great Lakes?
flow Miwh?
"How much would it cost t
lose the Great Lakes as a source

However, Chandler also pointed:
out that in the long run it would1
be more expensive to, and less
satisfactory, for example, to de-
salt ocean water for drinking pur-]
poses. When this time comes,1
something will be done, he said,]
but asked "why wait until it is7
too late?"1
An analogy can be drawn be-
tween the water pollution prob-]
lem and the overcrowded schools.3
Baby Boom

tors knew the time was comm;

inadequate, but for one reason or I

another they did not prepare for
the baby boom. The result is over-
crowding in schools.
In the same sense water pol-
lution is fast becoming a major
problem in the Great Lakes. Un-
less something is done, the Great
Lakes may be lost to man as a
source of fresh water.
Chandler emphasized that Lake
Erie is already in trouble. Oxygen
within the water is becoming'
scarce, he said.
Chandler used the species of
fish caught in the fishing indus-
try since 1925 as an index of the
growing pollution problem.

be to continue the momentum
and the spirit of the original
teach-in - namely to bring the
unique contributions of the intel-
lectual community to work on
teaching the people of the United
States the factual and theoretical
basis for our opposition to present
policy in the Viet Nam war."
The committee divided itself in-
to ad hoc groups concentrating on
the national teach-in, the com-
munity mobilization and the SDS
march on Washington. These ad
hoc committees will meet sepa-
rately to decide further action.
The next action will originate
from these committees, Gamson
said.
Some Action
Indications are there will be
some action at the University to
increase the interest of students
for . participation in the march.
What this action will be has yet
to be decided.

ing half of the summer session,
Revised Policy
Under the revised policy faculty
will be paid on the basis of a full
nine-month's appointment as has
been done in the past. It was
around this definition of the aca-
demic appointment year that the
controversy over the first draft
developed.
The faculty, defining the aca-
demic year as the eight months
spent teaching, asserted that they
should be paid one-eighth their
University-year rate for each
month spent in the summer ses-
sion-resulting in their being paid
25 per cent of their salary for the
two months of the half term
taught.
The Senate Advisory Committee
on Economic Status of the Faculty
prepared a report supporting the
eight-month scheme and present-
ed it before the Senate last No-
vember. The committee then en-
gaged in a continuing series of
discussions with the Office of
Academic Affairs which made the
final decision.
Many Positions
"We tried to incorporate into
the nine-month scheme as many
of the Senate Committee's posi-
tions as possible," Assistant to the
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs N. Edd Miller said yesterday.
"The compromise proposal is a
good instance of administrators
working with faculty groups to
reach a satisfactory conclusion,"
he added.

reaction to the final policy, Asso-

Formal Dinner
In Washington, President John-
son received word of the blast
during a formal dinner for the
visiting president of the African
nation of Upper Volta. The White
House indicated there would be no
immediate public comment from
Johnson.
Taylor also had no immediate
statement.
An American official in Saigon
said there were about 150 people

in the embassy at the time of
the blast. Most of the injuries
were from flying glass and bricks.
At His Desk
Ambassador Johnson was at his,
desk when the explosion ripped,
through the building. The blast
overturned furniture and smash-
ed windows.
A gaping hole was ripped in the
facade of the five-story concrete
building.
Among the injured was Robert
Miller, deputy chief of the embas-
sy's political section. His condition
was not immediately known.
An embassy official, Richard
Cleveland of Wayne, Pa., said
Miller's office was slashed by fly-
ing glass and that he suffered
serious cuts. Others in the office
appeared to have been critically
injured, Cleveland said.
Shortly after the midmorning
explosion, American and Vietna-
mese teams began hosing down
the debris-filled street around the
embassy. They cordoned off the
