University Presidenit Harlan
Hatcher last night reassured un-
dergraduates that they remain the
core of an institution seeking to
stimulate 'them through its di-
versity, not frustrate them with
its impersonality.
Declaring his interest in the
future of undergraduate education

cation by catering more to the

Proposals, Prospects

A iven More Time
Student Government Council's Membership Committee decided
yesterday that undergraduate social fraternities and sororities which
had not as yet resubmitted their membership statements-due last
Saturday-will have ten additional days to comply.
If individual houses have still not turned in their statements by
the end of this time period, the committee will refer them to the
Membership Tribunal for disciplinary action, William Burns, '65,
chairman of the committee, said.
In addition, committee member Judith Smith, '66, revealed that
77 other student groups also failed to refile copies of the membership

-He briefly expressed the Uni-

Undergrad Not Forgotten
In the speech, President Hatcher
promised the gathering that the
undergraduate does "not belong to
the category of forgotten men. He
is not on 'borrowed time'."
This attitude of being lost is
understandable, the President ex-
plained, because the complex Uni-
versity has left undergraduates
"bewildered, overwhelmed, frus-
trated or uninformed as to what
their University is all about and
where they fit into such a compli-
cated organization of learning."
Despite the seemingly endless
quantity of IQ ratings, IBM cards,
mechanized tests and credit hours,
the President said, this University
remains committed to educating
through its "great minds and
great teachers."
This policy is reflected in the
stress on excellence in teaching,

the mix," he said, pointing to the
nationally-ranked University of,
California at Berkeley, which has
only 10 per cent non-state resi-
However, he was quick to warn
that a further drop in the cur-
rent 27 per cent proportion of out-
of-staters here "would be a great
cause for alarm. I don't expect
it will happen."
Backing up his reassurances to
the undergraduate with concrete
proposals, the President said he
will appoint the "blue ribbon"
housing commission.
12,000 in Residence Halls
He explained that while 12,000
students reside in campus resi-
dence halls, some 9,000 live in
private homes and apartments in
Ann Arbor.The remainder inhabit
fraternity and sorority houses or
commute from other areas.
The pressure of growing enroll-
ment has brought new apartments
into use and attracted "new pri-
vate ventures like the (18-story),

high-rise structure on South Uni-
versity," the President said.
This trend "raises anew the
question of the relationships be-
tween the University and Ann Ar-
bor as a city and community, and
between the University and pri-
vate landlords as owners and rent-
ers of accommodations."
Geared to Undergrads
The idea of a student assembly
to discuss University problems de-
veloped last spring. At that time,
the President announced his in-
tention to gear the convocation
to the undergraduate, appointing
a student committee to work out
the format.
It agreed with the President
that last night's assembly should
center on what the undergraduate
can expect in the next decade.
Among the administrators in
attendance, Vice - President f o r
Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns
commended the President for pro-

Schwarz Urges Mandatory Communism Course

Leaders of the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade yesterday
urged that a course in Communism be mandatory for all college
students and that known Communists not be permitted to speak
at universities.,
At a press conference in the Michigan Union, Crusade President
Dr. Fred C. Schwartz said that "if you were studying vice in the
classroom, would you invite the madam of the local brothel to speak?"
Herbert Philbrick, former FBI counterspy, author of "I Led
Three Lives" and a Crusade lecturer and Mrs. Janet Greene, new
music director of the organization, appeared with Schwarz.
'New Dimension'
Mrs. Greene sang various songs which, according to Schwarz,

munists are currently exploiting the civil rights movement.

In answer to one question, Schwarz gave a new interpretation
of the Sino-Soviet rift. He described Russia as the "thermonuclear
