LeSaboTo Resign
Associate Dean Describes Faculty's
Attitude, Desire To Teach as Factors
Asserting that administrative and teaching duties together are
too much of a personal burden, Associate Dean Dick A. Leabo of the
business administration school has submitted his resignation effective
at the end of the winter term, 1965. He will assume increased class-
room duties in statistics as a full professor.
Leabo also cited faculty attitudes toward administrators,
and his desire to do more teaching as factors in his decision.
In his resignation letter to Dean Floyd A. Bond of the business
administration school, he charged that "most faculty members (and
the central administration of the

'U' Students May Get Exam Study Period in Fall

If current soundings of faculty
sentiment prove correct and fac-
ulty meetings over the next month
approve, students will have a
three-day study period before
finals starting next fall:
Deans and faculties recently be-
gan discussion on the proposal at
the request of Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns.
Heyns' action was in response to
a request by Student Government
Council that his office consider
establishing a study period.
Heyns commented last night

that if faculties approve the idea,
the three-day period will go into
effect in the calendar year 1964-
65. It would replace the current
one-day gap between the end of
classes and the beginning of
Discussion Begins
Discussion of the study period
has just started among the facul-
ties. General sentiment seems to
favor the plan, though there are
a few qualifications and com-
At its closed meeting Monday
night, the literary college faculty
was presented the proposal for

approval, but chose to put it on
the agenda for the January meet-
ing to allow time for discussion
before a vote is taken. A request
from any faculty member was
sufficient to place the item on the
January agenda, and one member
requested it.
However, sentiment at the meet-
ing was reportedly in favor of the
proposal, and chances are good
for its passage in January.
Sentiment Favorable
Dean Stephen S. Attwood of the
engineering college said last night
that though sentiment on the en-
gineering college faculty was gen-

erally in favor of a longer study
period before examinations, not
all favor a three-day period. Some
faculty members, pointing out that
the three-day period will always
be joined to a weekend, have ask-
ed whether the combined five-day
period is necessary.
Some in the college may seek a
"compromise"-perhaps a two-day
study period-but the faculty will
probably go along with the con-
sensus of the University's facul-
ties on the matter, he said. Fur-
ther discussion and a vote will
come at the monthly faculty
meeting in January.

Dean Rhoda Russell of the
nursing school said that "though
we haven't discussed the matter
in detail," there is some sympathy
toward the proposal from the
nursing faculty. Several members
have been hesitant on the ground
that the lengthened period might
cut too much class time from
what they see as a crowded sched-
ule, but there has as yet been no
extended discussion or vote on the
Must Await Meeting
Dean -Myron Wegman of the
public health school, while noting
that some faculty members have

been favorable to the proposal,
said no consensus can be reached
until the school's faculty meeting
Monday. The proposal will be on
the agenda and discussed there.
The faculty of the business ad-
ministration has not yet had an
opportunity to discuss the pro-
posal but will take it up at its
meeting tomorrow, according to
Dean Floyd Bond.
Deans Willard C. Olsen of the
education school and Reginald
Malcolmson of the architecture
and design college said their fac-
ulties will discuss the proposal at
January meetings.

Panhel Looks
Favorably on
Rush Plan
Sorority presidents last night
had no serious objections to an
unstructed plan for fajl rush.
However, Panhellenic Associa-
tion will not vote on the formal
proposal for the revision of fall
rush until the week of Jan. 28.
Tentatively, the ,new plan for
fall rush would replace the four
sets of highly organized evening
parties with unstructured mixers
and a type of "open rush"-with
more informal contact between
rushees and sorority women.
Similar Plan
The plan for unstructured mix-
ers would be similar to the plan
defeated last month for spring
rush. Rushees would be allowed
to visit houses in whichever se-
quence they chose and might stay
at each house for any amount of
According to the present plan,
rushees are led around in groups
by rush .counselors. Th~ey must
visit all 21 houses in a certain
sequence, staying at each house
for 30 minutes.
Under the plan for a type of
"open rush," houses could invite
rushees to the house at any time
of the day and for any length of
time during the formal rush
At present, rushees may not be
in houses except during formal
rushing parties.
Panhel also considered the re-
actions of national and local
alumni chapters to the Student
Government Council membership
committee's recent request for
alumni recommendation forms.
SGC Objectives
Some Panhel members said that
their nationals would like the SGC
membership committee to state
its ultimate objectives, instead of
continually adding requests. Ear-
lier this fall all fraternities and'
sororities were asked to submit
membership reports. This month,
the membership committee also
requested alumni recommendation
Several members asked that
Panhel either approve or disap-
prove of the membership commit-
tee's requests. President Ann
Wickins, '65, said that this would
not be in keeping with the tra-
ditional role of Panhel-as a con-
federation rather than an organi-
zation for determining policy for
individual sororities.
She said, however, that there is
a need for Panhel to express the
position of sororities on member-
ship. While there isn't time this
semester, it should be an area of
concern next semester, she said.

To Finance Group
On Per Capita Basis
One of the last remaining
bridges in the path of the mer-
ger of the student activities orga-
nizations of the Michigan Union
and Women's League was crossed
last night.
The Union Board of Directors
and League Board of Governors
after meeting in a rare joint ses-
sion unanimously adopted a com-
promise plan for the merger.
. The merged student activities
organizations, known as the Uni-
versity Activities Center, will now
be responsible to the governing
boards of both the Union and
League. Currently, the Union
Board exercises a greater control
of its student activities wing than
does the League Board.
Walter Rea, a member of the
Union Board, in discussing the
suggestion to make the UAC re-
of the Union's said, "The Union
does not want to give up its long
established tradition of excellence
(in the area of board supervi-
sion of student activities) for
something that is not as good."
Nancy Freitag, '65, president of
the League Executive Council, the
student activities wing of the
League, argued that the original
"plan to place the UAC under the
direction of the Union Board
alone was inadequate because it
was contrary to the concept of a
true merger.I
In effect, the original plan would
have given one of the League's
major fnuctions to the Union
rather than have truly merged the
two organizations, Miss Freitag
The other major revision in pre-
vious plans for the merger was
the decision to have the Union
and League support the UAC ac-
cording to the ratio of men to
women students. Former plans
called for an equal division oe

amendment to its constitution to

in the Kremlin.

mier Nikita S. Khrushchev. They

Welcome Announcement-
The White House said the Unit-
ed States welcomes the Soviet an-
nouncement of a $555 million cut
in the Russian arms budget. U.S.
authorities suggested privately,
however, that the Soviet move
was mainly a propaganda play in
the wake of a previous U.S. state-
rnent of intent to hold down Amer-
ican military expenditures.
The White House said that Sec-
retary of State Dean Rusk had
told some of the Russians at the
United Nations what McNamara
had said on the U.S. military
budget and "I presume this is the
basis of Mr. Kosygin's statement
this morning."
No Agreement
Gromyko said, as did a White
House spokesman, that there was
not an "agreement" between the
United States and Russia as such
to cut back on arms outlays.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of two articles reviewing the year
at the University.
Assistant Editorial Director
More than anything else, 1964 has been a year of expansion
for the University.
In an attempt to accommodate the increasing number of stu-
dents seeking a berth in higher education, the University has ex-
panded its plant and its plans on a number of fronts: it increased
its enrollment to a record high, approved a proposal to expand
Flint College to a four-year institution, initiated the first, year of

Expansion Highlight


year represented a 1,715 student increase over last year.
Administrators worked throughout the month of September
to place 460 students residing in temporary dormitory quarters in
newly-converted doubles and triples.
A plan proposed by Inter-Fraternity Council President Law-
rence Lossing, '65, to allow this fall's upperclass pledges to move
into their fraternity and sorority houses without delay or financial
penalty was approved by the Office of Student Affairs. However, the
OSA declined to extend a similar privilege to those dormitory resi-
dents wishing to leave University housing for apartments.
By the end of the month, 832 dormitory residents were occupy-
ing rooms to which the University had added an extra man. Fees for
the newly converted doubles and triples were reduced $70.
However, the housing squeeze was only one facet of the general
enrollment crisis. Schools and colleges within the University also
felt the weight of numbers.

pense of quality education.
According to official University estimates, next year's enroll-
ment will expand by an additional 1800 students: 400 extra fresh-
men, 200 freshmen at Flint (the first freshman class for the cur-
rently junior-senior institution) and 1200 upperclassmen and
graduates. This year's dormitory overcrowding will probably con-
tinue in 1965, according to a prediction made by Residence Halls
Business Manager Leonard Schaadt.
Meanwhile, University administrators compiled tentative statis-
tics to illustrate the "desired growth" of the University between
now and 1975. A report released by Vice-President for Academic Af-
faris Roger W. Heyns, working in conjunction with the Advisory
Council on Academic Affairs, listed chief trends which would be
established by 1975:
-Non-Ann Arbor enrollment would increase more than Ann
