Two Groups
Ponder New
College Units
The twoicommittees planning
the residential college - the fac-
ulty group and its advisory stu-
dent committee - met' separately
yesterday and continued discus-
sion of building plans.
The faculty planning commit-
tee took up in particular the prob-
lem of the new college's library
plans, and whether there should.
be offices for the faculty located
in the library. It was decided to
set up small, cubicle-like, student
and faculty carrels in the library,
instead of faculty offices.
According to Associate Dean of
the literary college and director of
the residential college Burton D.
Thuma, the residence college li-
brary is to be "designed along the
lines of the Undergraduate Li-
brary, but smaller."
At the same meeting, the fac-
ulty planning committee discussed
further a questionnaire to be sent
to the University faculty to find
those interested in teaching in the
residential college-for how longI
and under what conditions.
The committee expects this
week revised site plans which will
allow for occupancy of more area
than was originally planned. 1
Thuma stressed the fact that
most of the plans made for the
college are still subject to change.
He also said the college's fac-
ulty planning committee has been
split up into various subcommit-t
tees on agenda, academic build-t
ings, the library building and the
student center. A subcommittee
on the science laboratories is soon
to be formed.
The second committee on ther
residential college, the student ad-I
visory committee, also met yes-f
terday to discuss various aspectst
of the new college.r
Prof. Carl Cohen of the Dear-
born Campus philosophy depart-
ment and Prof. Alan T. Gaylord
of the English department, bothz
members of the faculty planning
committee, were present with1
Thuma at the student discussiont
Thuma reviewed the facts thatI
the residential college will have nor
departments, only divisions; that1
students on the main campus will
not take residential college coursesc
and that the college will haveF
about 70 faculty members.I
Gaylord then mentioned thet
problem of classroom-faculty of-
fice layout, saying that students
might be most likely to seek out
single offices that had classrooms
scattered nearby. .
One of the major topics at theI
meeting was the size of classes.t
After much discussion it was de-1
cided that the optimum size of
a small class is no more than 25
students, that a lecture should
have 100 or more students in itc
to be effective.1

WARSAW (A') - The Soviet bloc's highest leaders assembled
here yesterday for a summit meeting which Western diplomats say
could bring dramatic new moves for disengagement in Europe.
Expanded East-West contacts, reduced pressure against Berlin
and a withdrawal of some Soviet troops from Communist East Ger-
many, are the main possibilities voiced by these Western sources.

-On BuildingHeight Limit
After a prolonged debate, City Council voted 6-5 last night to
defeat the limitation on the height of high-rise buildings in the
city's central business district.
The five affirmative votes for the fifteen story limitation
were cast by Democratic councilmen, and the six negative votes
were cast by Republicans. Council chambers were filled for the
controversial debate.
A total of thirteen people spoke at the hearing, ten against
the height limitation ordinance and three for it. Local Attorney

The Lawyers' Club board urged
"all students to cooperate with
reasonable SGC action" and sug-
gested that SGC explore the feas-
ibility of several other ideas.
Four Points
These were 1) "the temporary
expansion of the Cinema Guild
program," 2) "the possibility of
the Michigan Union and Women's
League sponsoring high-quality
movies," 3) "the establishment of
an ad hoc committee of Univer-
sity student leaders to investigate
the situation and to recommend,
responsible action," and 4) "that

tunity to discuss the situation with

versity and with the executive of-
ficers of Butterfield Theatres,
Michael Mathews, '65L, presi-
dent of the Lawyers' Club, said
that the proposed Smithson mo-
tion to SGC will be a "test of stu-
dent interest to see whether the
students are serious in opposing
this price increase." He admitted
that the one-day "boycott" prob-
ably would not affect the theatres

Priorities Plan
The Student Employes Union de-
cided Sunday night to direct its
wage increase efforts at specific
insctitutions both on and off cam-
pus. Selected by the membership
institutions both on and off cam-
as initial targets are Drake's
Sandwich Shop and the Under-
graduate Library.
UMSEU President Barry Blue-
stone, '66, said Sunday that the
union's actions would . follow a
three step procedure in each case
-organizing as many employes as
possible, negotiating with manage-
ment and, if this fails, bringing
pressure to bear through possible
public demonstrations or work
Bluestone said that the member-
ship also decided to support any
action Student Government Coun-
cil decides to take concerning the
price increases recently set by the
campus Butterfield theatres. This
support, he continued, extends to
either boycotts or sit-ins.
In other action, UMSEU elect-
?d a new vice-president and select-
ed four new executive committee
members. Elected as vice-presi-
dent is George Steinitz, '66, while
Judith Klein, '66, Gail Smiley, '67,
HowardCone, '67, and David Sha-
piro, '68, will serve on the execu.
tive board.

and Premier Josef Cyrankiewicz.
Today, they start a special
meeting of the Warsaw Pact's
political advisory committee, the
first since, July 1963, shortly after
the signing of the Moscow limitedI
atomic test ban treaty.
The commander of Warsaw
Pact forces, Soviet Marshal A. A.
Gretchko, also arrived, following
meetings in East Berlin last week
with East German Communist
boss Walter Ulbright. Grethko's
travels caused Western diplomats
to think Moscow has made an im-
portant decision about East Ger-
many and wantdd Ulbright filled
in ahead of time.
They reasoned that reduction
of the estimated 20 to 22 Soviet
army divisions in East Germany
wouldsbe an appropriate response
to disarray in the Atlantic Alli-
ance, Western military cuts and
Western overtures to reduce ten-
sion in Europe.
Reducing Soviet strength in
East Germany might be accom-
panied by increasing the obliga-
tions of other Warsaw Pact mem-
bers-perhaps in some collective
form. This could explain why the
Soviet press has hinted that the
Warsaw meetings are to discuss
countermoves to the U.S. - pro-
posed multilateral nuclear force.

Committee To
Issue Result of
College Study
Gov. George Romney's "Blue;
Ribbon" Citizens' Committee on
Higher Education will issue its
report some time during the week
of Feb. 15, Harold Smith, staff
coordinator for the committee,,
predicted yesterday.
The release will follow a report
of the last finance study sub-
committee, scheduled for this
Friday, and a meeting of the en-
tire body to approve the completed
report in about two weeks, Smith
Finance was one of four sub-
jects which the committee split
up to consider. The other three
were undergraduate' institutions
a n d programs, post - graduate
schools and educational planning
and coordination. The reports of
these other sub-committees have
already been compiled and ap-
proved, but will not be released
until the finance report is also in.
Smith's statements apparently
put an end to speculation, both
official and unofficial, about when
the report will come out.
When the group was first ap-
pointed by Romney last spring,
estimates were that the report
would be completed by last July.
Administrative delays set this date
back to Nov. 12, when it was sup-
posed to have been released at a
meeting of the Michigan Associa-
tion of Colleges and Universities.
But the report was delayed
again, this time due to illness of
key members of the committee.
Chairman Dan Karn of Jackson
was hospitalized as was Alvin M..
Bentley, a subcommittee chair-
The auto strike also forced the
delay, as two other co-chairmen,
Edward Cushman and Irving
Bluestone, took part in the strike
The release date was then set
for Dec. 15. But the finance sub-
committee's report was late, forc-
ing the postponement to Feb. 15.
In addition to these delays, the
committee was also asked to issue
an "interim report" on Michigan's
hirm.r binon hudaet needs.

Loomis sees
Coed Dorms
As Reason
Says Unity Would Help
Single Student Voice,
Speed Communication
Assembly House Council and
Inter-Quadrangle Council should
merge their functions, AHC Presi-
dent Maxine Loomis proposed yes-
At last' night's AHC meeting,
she gave several reasons for the
First, when Bursley Hall, a
planned North Campus co-ed
dorm, is completed, 3600 students
in the residence hall system will
be living in co-ed conditions. With
the majority of their constituents
thus housed, Assembly and IQC
could function more efficiently as
a unified body, Miss Loomis said.
Presently there are problems in
the delegation of authority in
Markley and South Quad since the
women have retained membership
in AHC while the men are subject
to IQC.
A merger would help communi-
cation between a house and its
immediately superior authority,
Miss Loomis said. It would avoid
duplication of effort and would
achieve unity "of emphasis and
purpose" by presenting a single
student voice to the administra-
tion from the residence hall sys#
Stronger Staff
Second, recruitment has become
a W definite block to IQC, Miss
Loomis added. Staffing of one or-
ganization-as opposed to two-
allows for a more selective and;
extensive recruitment system.
Finally, a merged Assembly and
IQC would provide a "center of
contact" between Bursley Hall and
main campus, thus providing a
connecting link to all of North
Campus. This link must be pro-
vided if the educational theory of
activities in general and Assembly
and IQC specifically is to be up-
held, Miss Loomis said.
However, several problems arise
when considering the merger of
Assembly and IQC, Miss Loomis
added. The structures of repre-
sentation as they exist now are
entirely different; merger would
mean definite compromises on the
part of both men and women.
There is also the question of
just what to do with those inde-
pendent women living in apart-
ments who presently find repre-
sentation through Assembly. "'I
see the apartment dwellers as
forming their own representative
organization," Miss Loomis said.
The greatest difference arises
from the differing male and fe-
male personalities, she said. While
the women's governments func-
tion quite efficiently with a mini-
mum of parliamentary red-tape,
the majority of men's govern-
ments detract from their effec-
tiveness through procedural has-
sels, she said.
IQC President John Eadie was.
not available last night to com-
ment on Miss Loomis' proposal,
but there reportedly is some senti-
ment in IQC in favor of a merger.:
Weighing the above points, Miss
Loomis, recommends the following
-The functions and purposes

as well as the structures of both
organizations should be reviewed
by the merger committee;
--Members of Joint Judiciary
Council should be consulted as to
the advisability of incorporating a
judicial branch into the merged
-Membership of the merged
council should be held by the
dormitory or quadrangle president
with the number of votes appor-
tioned by population concentra-
tion. Representatives'"of the co-ed
dorms should be the highest rank-
ing, male and female officer of the
dorm council;
-Membership on the council
should be restricted to all non-
staff, non-faculty members of the
University who are residing in the

Road Company To Present 'Luther'

"Luther," termed by Broadway reviewers as "The Best Play of
1964," will be presented by the Professional Theatre Program tomor-
row night in Hill Auditorium at 8:30.
The Broadway touring production will be the first in the Profes-
sional Theatre Program's Play-of-the-Month Series.
:Starring Alan Bergmann as Martin Luther and Alfred Sandor
as Cajetan, the production will display the original costumes, scenery,
and music that graced the New York production. The scenery shifts
from the stark halls of a monastery where Luther is first ordained as
a monk to a sixteenth century town marketplace, and from the Vat-
ican in Rome to the historic Diet of Worms where the political and
ecclesisatical princes of Germany came to try the rebellious church-
Led Reformation
Though "Luther" chronicles the epic of the leader of the Refor-
mation, the man whose spiritual struggles led him to split Christen-
dom apart, it is not regarded as a religious play. Rather, as Howard
Tajhnman of the New York Times said. "Luther makes the theatre
