Wite, MeDitt Join Moon Unit

Two University graduates were
among the nine new astronauts
named to the United States space
team yesterday.
Edward H. White, II, '59 Grad.,
and James A. McDivitt, '59E, are
part of the new group which
boosted to 16 the total number of
astronauts who will man the Unit-
ed States space flights, President
John F. Kennedy established this

program specifically to put a man
on the moon in this decade.
A National Aeronautics and
Space Administration spokesman
said the newcomers to the space
projects will be trained only for
the moon shot, Project Apollo, and
for Project Gemini, the stepping
stone to the Apollo trip.
Flew Missions
McDivitt, originally from Chi-
cago, flew 145 combat missions in

Name Cutler as SRC Head;
To Consult Lewis on OSA
Prof. Richard Cutler of the psychology department last week
was named chairman of the University Senate's Student Relations
Committee, succeeding Prof. Andrew De Rocco, a member of the
chemistry department, who has resigned his teaching position at the
University effective this semester. However, he will head the SRC
only through the end of the current semester since he will go on

Korea. He was top in his class
at the Air Force test-pilot school.
White, a native of San Antonio,
Tex., a West Point graduate, is
also a test pilot.
Others named are: Air Force
Maj. Frank Borman; Air Force
Capt. Thomas P. Stafford; Neil A.

Robert R. Gilruth, director of
the Manned Spacecraft Center in
Houston, Tex., said there were five
basic qualifications for final se-
lection :
1) Experience as a jet test pilot,
preferably presently engaged in
flying high performance aircraft;
2) Experimental flight test sta-
tus attained through military
service, the aircraft industries for
NASA or possession of a certifi-
cate of graduation from a military
test pilot school;,
3) Possession of a degree in
physical or biological sciences or
Citizenship, Age
4) U. S. citizenship, age less
than 35 at the time of selection
and height six feet or less; and
5) Recommendation from the
individual's organization.
"The faculty of the engineering
college, and particularly those as-
sociated with the department of
aeronautical and astronautical en-
gineering, feel highly honored and
pleased that two of the college's
former students have been select-
ed for future space assignments,"
Associate Dean Glenn V. Edmon-
son said yesterday.
"Careful selection of these men
reflects the broad-based educa-
tional- opportunities provided them
during their attendance at the
University. We all join in wishing
them every success in their new
assignments," he concluded.

Grant Bill'
Accord Reached
By Senate, House
A long-standing deadlock was
resolved yesterday as a congres-
sional conference c o m m i t t e e
agreed on a $2.35 billion Federal
aid for higher education bill.
In the House-Senate comprom-
ise, universities and colleges fared
better than in either of the origin-
al bills passed by the House and
Senate. The bill is expected to
pass quickly with bipartisan back-
Specifically, the bill provides:!
1) Classroom Construction -
$1.5 billion over the next five
years; $900 million in grants, $600
million in loans. The grants, whichj
must be matched by funds raised
by the schools, are limited tot
physical and natural science build-
ings, libraries and engineering
Student Aid
2) Student Aid - $600 milliont
over the next eight years: a max-
imum of $1,000 a year per stu-
dent. Twenty per cent of each uni-
versity's funds under this provi-f
sion may be used as non-reim-
bursable loans or scholarships fort
especially needy and able students.
3) Junior Colleges - $250 inl
capital outlay funds for physical
and natural science, engineering
and library buildings.
Applaud Progressl
University officials applauded
these developments. University
President Harlan Hatcher espe-
cially noted the provision for con-
struction grants, instead of just
loans, as the original Senate billl
had included.
"Provisions for loans only are of
no use to state universities, be-t
cause we have no way to borrowt
on these funds," President Hatch-
er explained.
Sorry Diversion
President Hatcher expressedi
some regret that the construction
grants will be confined to science,
engineering and library facilities.t
"I'm sorry we have to divide con-
cerns vital to human beings into
these categories," he said.
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger Heyns concurred. Hec
was "delighted" that constructionr
grants would be available, and
added, "the need for more spacet
is general-so anything will help."t
Heyns suggested that grants for
science, engineering and library
buildings might free funds for
more building in other depart-
"However, we do regret that we
aren't recognizing at the national
level-in the National Defense
Education Act or this new bill-the
need for strengthening our pro-
grams in the humanities and so-
cial sciences," he added.
The bill also bars use of any of
the loan funds for divinity schools,
any religious instruction, gymna-
siums and stadiums.











SC Accepts
Gamma Phi
Membership Data
Adequacy Noted


Gamma Phi Beta sorority sub-
mitted its membership selection
practice statement to Student
Government Council and it was
deemed adequate by Council Presi-
dent Steven Stockmeyer, '63, yes-
terday afternoon.
Panhellenic President Ann Mc-
Millan, '63, said the required ma-
terial was given to SGC as a re-
sult of improved communication
since the deadline within the local
chapter and between the local and.
the national organizations. An in-
creased understanding on the part
of the national and local of the
problem created by Council's re-
quest also was a factor, she said.
No Procedures
Stockmeyer said that as yet no
procedures have been set up to
deal with those sororities who have
failed to submit their statements.
However, he will recommend that
allowances be made for those who
hand them in before any definite
hearing procedure is established.
There will be disciplinary action
Stockmeyer said, but the groups
turning in their statements now
may not have to appear before
Council for a hearing.
Gamma Phi Beta was one of the
seven sororities who failed to hand
in the membership statements in
compliance with the May deadline
set last semester. All seven sorori-
ties have statements on file which
did not meet the requirements
Council demanded of them.
Only Filer
So far Gamma Phi Beta is the
only house to have passed in the
necessary material.
Alpha Epsilon Phi, Kappa Del-
ta, Phi Mu, Delta Delta Delta, Del-
ta Sigma Theta, and Sigma Kappa
all face disciplinary action.
Individuals desiring .to make
changes in their listing in the
Student Directory have until
Sept. 27 to make them. Student
organizations face a Sept. 25
deadline. Changes may be made
by calling the Student Publica-
tions Bldg., NO 2-3241.

DeRocco Sets
Year Absencei
Honors Study
y ,
Prof. Andrew G. De Rocco of
the chemistry department, former
chariman of the University Sen-
ate's Student Relations Committee
has been granted a year's leave ofj
absence from the University in or-
der to direct a project designed to!
spot honors students in science
sponsored by the National Science
He will be working under the,
auspices of the Inter-University1
Committee on the Superior Stu-l
dent {ICSS) which is located at
the University of Colorado, he said.
The project requires he and his
staff to make judgments on the-
best ways to identify and develop
superior students in science. An
accompanying concern is the tra-
ditional barrier to meaningful
communication between scientists
and those in social science and$
humanities, he said.
Cite Mythoolgy
"The belief that you must be
a professional in order to under-f
stand the contributions of science
to culture is an act of mythology,"
he said..
A course on the contributions of{
science to culture for humanities
majors is an example of the kind
of idea he would be considering. J
Another is a seminar between the
top students in science, social sci-
ence, and humanities, he said. i
Prof. DeRocco will be travelingr
to study honors programs at vari-
ous American universities. He willt
work closely with a behavioral sci-
entist who is specializing in thef
study of institutions, he said. I
Seek SummaryI
At the end of the year he hopesE
to achieve a concise summary oft
the problem which hopefully willt
include some testable statements.

Cutler indicated that the change
in leadership would in no way
alter the purpose or inner work-
ings of the commitfee.
"The Student Relations Com-
mittee was established as a con-c

Vice-President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis.
"Since he is going on with his;
efforts to revise his office, the SRC
will go on working with him. We
intend to pursue with Lewis the
best possible plan for the re-struc-
tured OSA. While the policies and
revisions made public during the
summer are basically workable, we
feel there are still some imperfec-
tions which need to be corrected.a

sity's scientists already doing pi-
oneer work on the first manned
flight to the moon ."
"In suggesting he would start an
institute of space research at one
of our universities, he demon-
strates he doesn't even know of
the existence of the Institute of
Science and Technology . ." I
Education Leader
Romney, on Saturday, said,
"Michigan historically has been a
leader in the field of higher edu-
cation. This is the most important
reason for the development of the
automobile industry in Michigan."
Romney also saw the University
as the probable location of his pro-
posed space research center.
Terming education "the most
important single function of gov-
ernment" Romney tied the future
financing of education to the need
for economic expansion within the
state. Michigan's loss of industry
and failure to expand has been
the cause of Michigan higher edu-
cation's "loss of ground in rela-
tionship to other states."
Find Room
He noted that neither Michigan
higher education or Michigan in-
dustry is prepared to find room for
the children of the postwar baby
boom who next year will begin to
reach college age.
Swainson held an early morning
press conference, spoke before a
noon faculty luncheon for Swain-
son, addressed a capacity crowd
of students at the Natural Science
Aud., and then met with Univer-
sity President Harlan Hatcher and
other University officials for a
brief informal discussion.
Romney toured University hos-
pital on Saturday morning, then
went on to a 1 p.m. speech to an
overflow crowd in the Michigan
Union ballroom, followed by a
short press conference and ended
his stay with a walk down State
St. greeting passersby and answer-
ing questions posed to him by the
crowd surrounding him.
Swainson blasted Romney for
what he called "me-tooism"-

'Negro Gains,
U.S. Escort
By The Associated Press
Meredith, a 29-year old Negro
seeking admittance into the all-
white University of Mississippi,
will be protected by federal mar-
shals when he enrolls sometime
this week, the Justice Department
announced last night.
Edwin Guthman, information
officer for the department, said a
marshal will present to registra-
tion officials a copy of the court
order directing the university to
admit Meredith to the all-white
Marshal Report
Guthman made the disclosure
when asked about reports that
some deputy marshals had been or-
dered to a city near the university
from non-Mississippi stations.
"Only a few will be there," he
said. "They are going to accom-
pany Meredith and will have a
copy of the court order with them."
The department's announcement
apparently was its answer to the
appeal of Mississippi Gov. Ross
Barnett for defiance of the federal
court order.
The department has also receiv-
ed a number of appeals concern-
ing Meredith's safety. One was
from the Young Adult Council,
consisting of 28 student and young
adult groups in the United States.
Send Telegram
From their meeting at Hudson
Guild Farm, N.J., the group sent a
telegram to Atty. Gen. Robert
Kennedy warning of a threat to
Meredith's life. The group sent
their message after conferring with~
informants in Mississippi.
Students for a Democratic So-
ciety President Thomas Hayden,
Grad, who was present at the
meeting, said that he had reports
that Meredith would be killed by
"anyone in a million." This action,
the former Daily editor said, would
allow state officials to avoid the
embarrassment of going to jailfor
defying federal court orders.
Consider Action
Meanwhile, Barnett and the
state college board discussed legal
problems in the University of Mis-
sissippi desegregation case and the

Graduate, Transfer
Enrollment Grows,
Dropout Rate Falls
A record 26,018 students are en-
rolled at the University for resi-
dence credit this semester.
Surpassing the old record of 25,-
475, set by the 1961 fall credit en-
rollment, by 543 the new record
total includes students at Ann Ar-
bor, Flint College and the Dear-:
born Center.
According to the Office of Reg-
istration and Records the increase
is a result of a larger number of
transfer students, a decrease in
the dropout rate and increases in
graduate enrollment.
No Breakdowns
Contrary to previous practice
the office did not break down the
total figure to include the sizes of
the various classes, and conposi-
tion of the various schools. For-
merly under the Office for Stu-
dent Affairs, the office was in-
volved in the recent OSA shake-
up and is now under the Vice-
President for Academic Affairs.
Also not disclosed were figures
on the in-state-out-state student
ratio. The Legislative Audit Com-
mission is reportedly coming to
Ann Arbor Thursday for purposes
of reviewing such figures with
University officials.
Unfulfilled Hope
The office had expected the $50
enrollment deposit initiated last
semester to aid in the early com-
pilation of enrollment statistics
did not work out as well as had
been hoped for. Many students did
not learn of it last semester and
thus students were allowed. g pay
it up through registration.
The entering freshman class is
probably the most selective ever
admitted. Although no figures
were announced it is thought that
more people applied for admission
than last year, and the freshman
class is expected to remain nearly
the same size.

NEW YORK P)-- A Columbia
University study issued yesterday
credits former President Dwight
D. Eisenhower with playing a
"much more active role in origin-
ating" various aspects of his ad-
ministration's defense policysthan

The study by Prof. Glenn H.
Snyder of the University of Den-
ver is entitled "The 'New Look' of
1953" and was conducted under
the auspices of Columbia's Insti-
tute of War and Peace Studies. It
is one of three papers sponsored
by the Institute which probe the
transformation of America's de-
fense posture in the cold war era.
Snyder based his analysis large-
ly on personal interviews. He con-
cludes that most of the defense
policies of the Eisenhower years
should be attributed to the Presi-
dent, and not to members of his
Snyder says the "new look" was
based on the belief that American

Repertoire Players Arrive in Ann Arbor

Repertoire theatre has come to Ann Arbor.
The first group of the Association of Producing Artists, fresh
from Broadway success, arrived Sunday at Willow Run Airport.
On hand to meet the group was Prof. Robert C. Schnitzer, execu-
tive director of the University's new Professional Theatre Program,
of which the APA is a part.
Among those arriving were Rosemary Harris, who this summer
starred opposite Sir Laurence Olivier in England, Enid Markey, and
Ann Meacham.
Long Career
Miss Markey has a long, distinguished Broadway record, includ-
ing "Happy Birthday" and "Mrs. McThing" with Helen Hayes. Miss'
Meacham was a star of last season's "A Passage to India" and played
the title role in the off-Broadway version of Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler."
The coming of the APA to Ann Arbor, and the concept of a pro-
fessional theatre program in a university community, is generally
recognized as a milestone in the growth of American theatre. The APA
has been engaged for a three year contract, presenting a total of
eight productions yearly in a Fall Festival and a Shakespearean Fes-
tival. Each festival season will be followed by a statewide tour by{
the APA.
Pioneer Project
This theatre program has been designed by Prof. Schnitzer and
