Says Living Units
Will Offset Bigness
President Tells Graduate Schools
To Review Their Curricula
, 'University President Harlan Hatcher last night reassured
the faculty that the University will seek to extract the bene-
fits of bigness while avoiding the hazards of overpopulation.
His speech, delivered before the University Senate, ap-
peared to ask their help in making trimester the controlling
element of growth.
Trimester is a valid solution to the problems of cramped
facilities, he said. "The wisdom of this move will become in-
creasingly apparent as the years unfold."
However, the President went to great ler.gths to assure
the faculty that they will not' be harmed by the new calendar.
He noted that the trimester

Furthermore, Hatcher pointed

teach all three semesters would
"receive extra compensation."

The propc'-al would be aimed at
3lleviating the current residence
hall crowding. It was forwarded
to housing .officials . three weeks
ago by Interfraternity Council
President Lawrence Lossing, '65.
Lossing's proposal would let
pledges above the freshman level
out of their residence hall con-
tracts. They could then move into
theirhfraternity houses as soon
as the board gave them permis-
sion. Such pledges usually have
to honor their year-long contracts
and thus cannot move into their
houses until the next fall. Ac-
cording to the Regents' bylaws,
the board has the power to release
them from the contracts.
Housing officials have speculat-]
ed that the vacancies left by these
pledges would help relieve the dor-
mitory squeeze. At present, the
dormitories are holding about 200
more residents than their normal

Goldwater said he is convinced*
that only "through a careful study
by the best qualified experts this
country has to offer can we meet
the situation in South Viet Nam."
The Republican candidate said
that he would hope that Eisen-
hower would be aided on such a
fact-finding mission by such men
as former Rep. Walter Judd of
Minnesota, a key foreign policy
man for the GOP; by Adn. Ar-
leigh Burke, former chief of naval
Ceura.tions and by Gen. Mark

WORK CONTINUES ON THE RENOVATION of the area behind the administration building. The
Jefferson apartments were torn down here this summer to make way for a new administration build-
ing on Thompson St. It will free 65,000 square feet in the current administration building for the
use of the literary college.

At least one other plan could
come up for discussion at the
board meeting, officials have indi-
cated. It would require freshmen
with homes in Ann Arbor to live
in their homes. Such freshmen
currently have a choice between
home and the residence halls. This
plan would probably not go into
effect until next year if approved
by the board. The University used
a plan similar to this during the
crowding following World War II.
The board has also invited rep-,
resentatives of both Inter-Quad-
rangle Council and Assembly
House Council to its meeting. The
representatives plan to offer the
board a joint recommendation on

Dirksen also discussed his party, remarking, "The Republican
Party is still basically a conservative party, though I might modify
that by saying that it is a moderately conservative party in the

The Illinois Senator observed that "if a voter does not like

ideologies such as Communism, then he ought to be a Republican."
