Expect To Implement
Deferred Admissions
Heyns Says Larger Enrollment
Can Be Handled by U' Facilities
University officials yesterday forecast a record 1800-stu-
dent increase here next fall, revising recent estimates that
the University would add only 1200 to the current 29,100.
Conceding that this newly projected enrollment of 30,-
900 would tax academic and housing facilities, the officials
were unanimous in their optimism that the University can,
handle the increase.
To accommodate qualified applicants beyond the pro-
jected total, a deferred admissions policy will be in force for

Total expenditures for Univer-

of $136.6 million, Vice-President
for Business and Finance Wilbur
K. Pierpont disclosed in the an-
nual University Financial Report
accepted by the Regents yesterday.
Pierpont stated in the report
that in the last ten years the Uni-
versity has grown significantly.
"Overall volume of dollar opera-
tions has more than doubled in
this period.
"Total net assets of the Univer-
sity have increased 150 per cent.
Endowment market values have
more than doubled and student
loan fund assets have increased
over six times in the same period."

Executive Vice-President Mar-

meeting that although the Re-
gents had briefly considered ask-

idea had been rejected. The ad-

Pierpont unveiled a multi-mil-
lion dollar housing construction
package designed to add 3600 new
residence places by 1968. How-
ever, he said none of these would
be ready until the fall of 1965.

Rorganizin ArgoLb

The Argonne National Labora-
tory near Chicago, one of the
Atomic Energy Commission's larg-
est research centers, is being re-
organized to allow increased man-
agement participation by Midwest-
ern universities.
The $325 million laboratory,
which had its origin in World
War II atomic bomb research, is
currently operated solely by the
University of Chicago, with an ad-
visory committee of representa-
tives from other universities and
from industry.
A non-profit corporation will be
formed "as soon as possible" with
membership composed of Midwest-
ern university representatives,
Prof. H. R. Crane of the physics
department said yesterday. "We
expect that the University will
be included in the board mem-
bership," he said.

Midwestern Universities Research
Association (MURA), the Associ-
ated Midwestern Universities, the
University of Chicago and the
Atomic EnergydCommission, an-
nounced yesterday the tripartite
agreement under which the lab
will operate.
Crane said that the Atomic En-
ergy Commission will continue to
supply funds for the operation of
the lab, the University of Chicago
will continue to perform most of
the normal business management
and the new corporation will di-
rect the policy making.
"It is hoped that this new or-
ganization will encourage Mid-
western universities to participate
more strongly in scientific activ-
ity at the laboratory," Crane said.
"It is also expected that with 15-
20 universities directly interested
in the lab, considerable political

The Regents approved yesterday
plans for a new $4.9 million Uni-

The cost is approximately $1.4
million more than the amount
originally authorized for the build-
ing by the Regents at their Feb.
27 meeting.E
The building will be located
immediately east of Michigan
Stadium and construction is ex-
pected to start this spring with a
target date for completion set for
May 1966.
Primarily Basketball
Vice-President for Business and
Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont ex-
plained thetdetails of the build-
ing plans to the Regents, "The
University Events Building, which
is primarily a basketball struc-
ture, will also be used for wrestling,
gymnastics, tennis, volleyball-
intercollegiate as well as intra-
mural activities. The building is
also designed for commencement,
lectures and student entertain-
ment, such as the Chad Mitchell
Trio or Harry Belafonte concerts.
The building will have 14,000
individual chair-type seats with
two areas of temporary seating. A
telescopic seating structure with a
capacity of about 1,000 can be
extended immediately adjacent to
both sides of the basketball floor.
In addition, temporary seats may
be placed in the walkway that
runs around the entire oval in-
terior about halfway up. The ver-
tical aisles will remain unoccupied
by order of the fire marshall.
Practice Courts
The entire floor of the oval
arena will be a basketball floor
with a width much larger than
regulation size. The floor is wide
enough to accommodate two full-
sibe practice courts which will lie
perpendicular to the regular bas-
ketball court. The telescopic stands
will extend over the practice courts
to the side of the basketball court.
The new building will be fi-
nanced entirely by revenues and
receipts from the University's
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics, These funds will con-.
sist primarily of student athletic
fees, football and basketball ticket
sales, and radio and television
Dual Purpose

ables its facilities to serve a dual

The Cedar Bend and residential

the surprise in yesterday's meet-
ing was the revival of Bursley
Hall. This project, originally con-
ceived in 1957, was officially scrap-
ped in 1963 in favor of smaller
housing units.
The completed plans have re-
mained in the Office of Student
Affairs, however, and apparently
the administration decided that
reviving them would be the quick-
est way to meet the housing prob-
Regent Irene B. Murphy of
Birmingham questioned the sud-
denness with which Bursley Hall
was brought out.
Regent Murphy abstained on the'
vote approving Bursley,as did Re-
gent Eugene B. Power of Ann Ar-
bor. "I recognize that it is neces-
sary, and that we need and must
have the space, but I regard with
some concern the size of the units
in view of what we have learned
since we began planning in 1957,"
he said.
The Bursley proposal passed five
to nothing.

Set enin
Of College
The Regents yesterday set the
fall of 1967 as the opening date
for the residential college, the
University's novel classroom-resi-
dence complex.
The precise building schedule for
the college, though not yet final-
ized, will be coordinated with the
University's plans for constructing
a number of other residence units
over the next five years.
By 1967, facilities for approxi-
mately 800 of the residential col-
lege's eventual 1200-student capa-
city will be completed. This is a
year later than a tentative rec-
ommendation by the college's fac-
ulty planning committee.
The extra year will,, however,
allow the committee to be much
more careful in planning the col-
lege, according to Associate Dean
Burton Thuma of the literary col-
lege, residential college director.
Moreover, the coordination of
the residential college building
schedule with that of the other
residence units-a point empha-
sized at the Regents' meeting by
University President H a rla n
Hatcher-will reduce pressures on
the college to house some general
student overflow. These students
would be accommodated in the
empty facilities which will exist in
the residential college.
The major decision which res-
idential college planners now face
is whether or not to set up make-
shift classroom facilities so that
the first class can be admitted for

The 'Regents yesterday approved a plan for University
housing to accommodate 3600 more students by 1968. Three
new dormitory complexes, none of which will be operational
until 1966, were announced as the solution to the overcrowded
situation in the residence halls produced by rapidly rising
At the same time, Vice-President for Academic Affairs
Roger W. Heyns told the Regents that the University will take
in 1800 more students next fall-600 more than previously an-
ticipated; there will be no new housing for freshmen.
