Varsity Athletics,
By BARBARA SEYFRIED
In a move that critics claim will hurt the educational atmos-
phere, Oakland University has decided to enter intercollegiate
athletics.
This is an apparent reversal of the policy articulated in 1959
when the Michigan State University branch first opened. At that
time many Oakland publications emphasized the fact that there

Goldwater '
ESees Crisis,
Before Vote
SEATTLE (P)-Sen. Barry Gold-
water advised the nation yester-
day to watch for a "crisis of some
sort" just before the November
election.
He told a cheering crowd that
packed Seattle's Coliseum that this
is the way the Democrats operate.'
Goldwater charged the Kennedy
administration deliberately timed
the October 1962 Cuban missile
1 crisis so it would come "at a time
that would have maximum domes-
tic political impact."
He said that should be a warn-
ing. "Americans must be prepared,
under such an administration to
be faced by a crisis of some sort
just before an election," the Ari-
zona senator said.
Goldwater said in his prepared
text that President Lyron B.
Johnson's foreign policy adds up
to "defeat, disaster, retreat, chaos,
confusion." He dropped that line
from his speech however.
S"We do not intend to rubber
stamp four years of mistake, re-
treat and weakness in world af-
fairs," the Republican Presidential
nominee declared.
Goldwater said a team of con-
sultants headed by Richard Nixon
will confer with free world lead-
ers in "a serious and historically
significant attempt to , regroup
freedom's badly scattered forces
while there is still time."
His address was-prepared for a
regional television audience.
Harvard Gets
'U' Professor
Prof. Enrique Anderson-Imbert
of the romance languages depart-
ment has been appointed Harvard
University's first Victor Thomas
Professor of Hispanic - American
Literature.
A University faculty member for
17 years, Prof. Anderson-Imbert's
appointment is effective in July.

iwould be no intercollegiate sports
there.
The absence of such spectator]
events was seen at the time as a
step toward establishing the rig-'
orous intellectual life the Roches-
ter, Mich., institution had plan-
ned for itself.
Begin Program
Now Chancelor Durward B. Var-
ner has asked Hollie Lepley, di-
rector of intramural sports at
Oakland, to institute such a pro-
gram.
Varner views the introduction
of intercollegiate athletics "not as
a launching of a program but the
removal of a prohibition." He said
that Oakland had gotten first
things first. Oakland has estab-
lished Itself academically and is
now ready to move into other
areas.
But critics connected with Oak-
land, who asked not to be identi-
fied, argue that the introduction
of spectator sports is an attempt
to make Oakland better known
at the expense of education.
AAUP
Rumors of the move sparked a
response from the Oakland chap-
ter of the American Association of
University Professors last spring.
In a letter to Varner, Maurice
Brown, president of the Oakland
AAUP, emphasized the AAUP posi-
tion, that it is "strongly committed
to the belief that. a university's
athletic policy can exert a power-
ful influence on the educational
environment of the' institution,"
Brown pointed out that the
Oakland faculty felt responsible
for "creating and maintaining the
best environment for education"
and asked that "no changes be
made in the current athletic pol-
icy without the advice and consent
of the Senate of the university."
Commenting on expected oppo-
sition from this quarter, Varner
said, "There may be some opposi-
tion" but doubted if it would be
much. Varner added "I don't ex-
pect any significant effect on the
academic status of Oakland."
In 1963 when Varner first re-
activated a faculty committee on
athletics to gain approval for the
introduction of the sports pro-
gram, Daniel Polsby and the Oak-
land Observer polled students and
faculty on the issue. They found
an overwhelming ratio of those
polled were against the introduc-
tion of this form of athletics.

No WalkE
-A half-time walk across the
gridiron would be impossible sinceI
it has been permitted only twiceI
in the past decade.'
In the fifties, the then-Secre-1
tary of the Army Wilbur Brucker,c
'16, was faced with divided loyal-
ties between his school and his
career at a Michigan-Army foot-
ball game.I
His walk across the field atI
half-time was repeated by Gov.A
George Romney last year. The gov-f
ernor, appearing at a game against
Michigan State University switch-
ed from the University to the MSU1
sides amidst a mixed chorus of
cheers and boos.X
'Highly Official'
President Hatcher emphasizedt
that these two appearances were
highly official in nature, distinct
from a campaign appearance. E
Goldwater could come here un-
der student auspices provided thatr
sponsoring organizations obtainI
the standard space and time per-t
mission. The late John F. Ken-c
nedy campaigned here in 1960 onc
the steps of the Union, unveiling
his Peace Corps plan.
Republican student leaders, an--
xious to hold a rally for the Sena-
tor, have, decided against the
Union. Dale Warner, Grad, statef
chairman of the Michigan Federa-
tion of College Republicans, said1
that the surrounding area was
damaged during the Kennedy ap-
pearance. Warner favors a dem-f
onstration in front of Angell HallI
or the Diag.'
'Morning Rally
The rally would be held in the
morning and feature various Re-
publican candidates.
But Goldwater's plan for ther
day, his first official campaignt
visit to Michigan, have not beent
finalized. Republican leaders are
meeting today in Lansing to de-7
cide how to . apportion the Sena-t
tor's time between Lansing, De-r
troit and Ann Arbor visits. C
Fund-Raising
Goldwater aides tentatively I
scheduled the Detroit phase for
a fund-raising affair, but Romney
is reportedly hesitant to assist
him. Lansing sources reported that
the governor wants to move into
more rural areas where the iden- I
tification with Goldwater will
benefit him.
The independent and moderate
Republican voters of Wayne'
County and suburbs are believed
to be cool on Goldwater.
But Romney made it clear that
he will cooperate and campaign
with the Senator despite schedul-t
ing complications he will face on
Sept. 26.I

Triumvirate1
The ruling triumvirate-Khanh,
Maj. Gen. Duong Van Minh and
Lt. Gen. Tran Thien Khiem-held
a news conference to make pub-
lic a series of decrees and answer
questions on the promised new
government.
Admired by the Buddhist major-
ity for his overthrow of the Ngo
Dinh Diem regime last November
Minh was commissioned to con-
vene a national council of 10 to
20 leaders of religious and political
groups by the end of this month.
Meanwhile in Washington, Am-
bassador Maxwell D. Taylor pre-
sented a generally optimistic re-
port on the Viet Nam war to Pres-
ident Lyndon B. Johnson and to
the congressional leadership.
Upward Trend
Taylor said military strength
against the Red guerrillas is on
"a general upward trend," the eco-'
nomic situation is "relatively sta-
ble," and "I have every hope . .
that we can get over this political
crisis without setback in the goals
we have" for wiping out Commu-
nist terrorists.j
Taylor's appraisal climaxed a
general review of the Viet Nam
situation that has been under way
since the ambassador returned
from Saigon Monday in the wake
of South Vietnamese political up-
heavals.
Today, he is to appear before
the Senate and House Foreign Af-
fairs Committees. Soon thereafter,
perhaps as early as tonight, he
intends to return to Saigon.
Sufficient Interest
Johnson said afterwards that
Taylor's report "was of sufficient
interest and importance" to war-,
rant calling congressional leaders
to the White House to meet with
the ambassador in midafternoon.
The President said he expected
Taylor to come back at regular in-
tervals in the future for further
reports and reviews. Formerly
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, Taylor went to the Saigon
post two months ago.

bring to

"Civility is being dedicated to
the life of -reason and refers to
the idea of being a responsible
person," Kaufman elucidated.
The University should show
students how to lead an examined
life, he continued.
Citing a study in the changes in
students' values at one university,
he noted that most students leave
college without changing their be-
liefs. Kaufman explained, "If
values happen to change in the
process of converting opinion into
examined views, that is merely a
by-product."
I In contrast N. Patrick Murray
of the Office of Religious Affairs,
hypothesized that the University
does in fact change students'
values. The choice, balance and
emphasis of courses in the cur-
riculum, the kind of people the
University attracts and the atti-
tudes of the members of the fac-
ulty all have an inevitable influ-
ence on values, he indicated.
After establishing that modern
weapons, transportation and com-
munication have created a world
xcommunity which is in a value
crisis, Murray reasoned that since
the University changes values, it
should search "for the ground in
human values which make it pos-
sible for the world community to
survive."
All of the panelists agreed with
Kaufman that it is imperative
that values in all areas of thought
be examined by university students
whether they be English majors
or engineers.

RUSHEES HAD A CHANCE to mingle with fraternity members

HARD NIGHT'S DAY:
Chaos Accompanies Bea

By HUGH HOLLAND
'T'he British never could take a joke, and so this past Sunday they
finally got even for the loss of Fort Detroit way back when. Chaos
reigned as the Beatles in full dress were in Michigan for 24 hours
and the effects may never end.
The amount of energy expended in pure screaming could have
powered entire nations and the glare from the tear-strained cameras
and flashbulbs could have hid the sun, as over 32,000 teenagers
surrendered to the foursome.
Sixteen thousand girls between the ages of 12 and 15 could
easily match the screams of a million horribly maimed dinosaurs
without really trying. How such little girls can make so much noise
over such small things as the appearance of an unshaven workman
attempting to position microphones poses one of the burning ques-
tions of our day.
For those that were amazed at the Beatle movie that the four
were not a hairy set of English Elvis's, and who further have yet to
figure what in blazes is going on in John Lennon's "In His Own
Write," may they further be shocked to discover that in person the
Beatles are just as they were in the movie: human beings.
The four are highly affable and enjoyable young men, the kind
who make good drinking buddies, and usually command the center
of attraction at a party (even without the hair).
Yet the most amazing part of the entire phenomena (much akin

Candidate Vivian Urges
Strong Rits aws to YD's
By ROBERTA POLLACK
Weston Vivian, candidate for Congress from the 2nd congressional
district, last night' praised the accomplishments of the past four
years of Democratic leadership and discussed his own candidacy for
the House.
Vivian, speaking before a meeting of the Young Democrats. em-
phasized his support of civil rights legislation. "If we don't take action
in the South, who will?" His op-
ponent, Rep. George Meader, had
voted against civil rights legisla-
tion in 1960, 1961 and 1964.
=Vivian also stressed the need for
t i consumer protection and migrant
worker laws. He also called for a
medicare bill to "help those who
have lost the ability to earn an
income."
On the question of redistricting
he emphasized the principle of
"one man, one vote," and decried
Meader's position in Congress
"He wants to keep the area Re-
publican."
Vivian cited the economic pros-
perity of the past four years, but
mentioned the problems of- unem-
ployment caused by automation.
"We must help these people find
employment" He indicat ed the
recent job retraining bill as an
example of a Democrat's solution.
Meader's opposition to the
minimum wage laws also came
under fire. "$1.25 is ridiculously
low when you are trying to sup-
port a family. The Poverty Bill is
an example of Democratic moves
to improve conditions."

should be careful about their per--
sonal appearance, he emphasizedI
that "it is the person and not'
what he wears that is being rush-
ed."
Disappointment
Rea cautioned rushees not to
be disappointed if they are not
'invited back to a particular house.
"The fraternity system in this re-I
spect is not democratic; it isI
selective. Fraternities were de-
signed this way; but the rushee
also is selective yin that he can
drop a house."
Lawrence Lossing, '65, IFC pres-
ident, and John Feldkamp, ad-
visor to fraternities, discussed the
advantages of the fraternity way
of life.
"During your education at the
University, you will become a pro-
duct of your surroundings," Feld-
kamp remarked. "While books are
going to open new horizons, the
deepest penetration will come from
your associates. No other form of
living unit has been so successful
in shaping an individual as the
fraternity."
Opportunity
Lossing cited the opportunity
for social, academic and extra-
curricular development as products
of fraternity living. He pointed
out that the fraternity is a way to
make a large university more per-
sonal through brotherhood within
a selected group.
"You give yourself a stable
group of 'friends you can return
to, people that you have selected
and who have selected you," he
said.
Lossing further discussed the so-
cial aspects of fraternities claim-
ing that they "offer the best deal
on this campus for social activi-
ties at a cost of only four or five
dollars a month."
Social Organizations
While calling fraternities "so-
cial organizations," he added that
the Greek system does not divorceI
itself from the academic aspect
of the University. He noted that
IFC is trying to create a greater
intellectual atmosphere within fra-
ternities.

May FinishL
Dorm Move
Tomorrow
By ROBERT HIPPLER

II

Administrators are keeping to- 1
morrow as their target date for
completing the move of over 400
students from temporary housing
to residence hall rooms, Assistant
Director of Housing Robert Rau
said yesterday.
Rau set the date as a tentative
goal last week, ,when all 400 stu-
dents were still in temporary
quarters. Since then the Univer-
sity has been adding an extra
student each to hundreds of
single and double rooms.
Administrative sources indicat-
ed recently that the University
has completed placing students'
into the single rooms, leaving only
the double rooms to be filled by
tomorrow.
Pledge Plan !
Meanwhile, Office of Student
Affairs officials are still studying
a proposal that would allow this
fall's upperclass pledges - those
above freshman level - to move
from residence halls into their
fraternity houses without delay.
The plan would be aimed at allev-
iating the residence hall jam-up.
Lawrence Lossing, '65, president
of Inter-Fraternity Council, offer-
ed the plan Saturday to Director
of Residence Halls Eugene Haun.
Haun declined the plan at the,
time, but Vice-President for Stu-
dent Affairs James A. Lewis said
Tuesday that he would consider it
as a possible partial remedy to the
crowding.
Sources said yesterday that
Lewis will come to no decision on
the matter until next week, when
he can survey the conditions in
the residence halls with all stu-
dents out of temporary housing.
Lossing said yesterday he plans to
estimate the extra space now
available in fraternities for pledges
and show the results to Lewis by'
next week.
Freshman Level
Lossing's proposal would let
pledges above the freshman level
out of their residence hall con-
tracts' if they wished to be re-
leased. The Residence Hall Board
of Governors 'has the power to re-'
lease the students from their con-
tracts.
If let out of their contracts,
students could move into their
fraternity houses as soon as they
pledged, leaving vacant space in
the residence halls, to help house
the overflow 'of students more
comfortably.
