Presidents Approve
Report Procedures
To Provide Data for Legislature
On College Incomes from Students
The Michigan Council of State College Presidents approved a
formula yesterday which sets up uniform procedures for reporting
each institutions' income from students to the Legislature.
The Presidents agreed that each of the 10 state schools would
use the same procedure and report the same items to Lansing. The
items include the institution's income from (a) appropriations,
(b) freshman-sophomore fees, (c) junior-senior fees and (d) gradu-




Curb Hits

In Courses
About 55 students were unable
to enroll in French 111 and 112
this semester, thus highlighting
problems that continue to exist in
the special language courses pro-
vided for graduate and doctoral
degree students.
Due to budget difficulties last
year, these courses had to be cur-
tailed somewhat, while an increas-
ingly large number of students de-
sired to enroll in them.
Masters and doctoral degree
candidates must have a reading
knowledge of two languages -
usually French, German or Rus-
sian. These courses 'are not re-
quired, but many students find it
necessary to take them.
Slightly Better
Prof. James C. O'Neill, chair-
man of the Romance languages
department, noted that the situa-
tion last year was a serious one,
"and this year it is only slightly
He explained that the entire
French department was hit by a
very sharp increase in enrollment,
as 275 more students dnirolled than
last year, and an extra 17 sec-
tions in the overall curriculum had
to be established during registra-
As a result, the department was
able to add only one more section
for French 111 to attempt handl-
ing the overflow. Normally, there
are three sections of about 30
students each in the special lan-
guage courses.
No Rejects
Prof. Clarence Pott, chairman
of the German department, and
Prof. John Mersereau, acting
chairman of the Slavic languages
department, reported that no
graduate students had to be
turned away from German and
Russian 111 and 112, although
classes are very large.
The German department had to
add a fourth section to the 111
class, but Prof. Pott said there
would be no decline in quality of
course content.
He and Prof. Mersereau ex-
plained that a language course de-
signed to impart a reading knowl-
edge only "can be streamlined to
handle large enrollments without
lowering achievement."
Compiles Figures
Graduate School Council Presi-
dent Edward Sasaki, whose organ-
ization compiled the figures on
the overcrowding, said the council
would continue to discuss the sit-
uation with the executive board
for the graduate school, which
controls the graduate student lan-
guage requirements.
The literary college executive
committee, however, oversees the
finances for these courses.
Vice-President for Academic Af-

>ate fees, (where applicable). The
income per student in eachclassi-
fication will also be reported.
University Executive Vice-Pres-
ident Marvin L. Niehuss, who at-
tended the meeting, explained that
state-supported colleges and uni-
versities have been required to file
these reports for several years, and
this new procedure was imple-
mented simply to insure uniform-
ity in their content.
No Use
The effect of the new procedure,
once its reports reach Lansing, is
not yet clear. "Not much use has
been made of the reports in the
past, and we don't know what will
happen now," Niehuss commented.
In other actions, the presidents
took the first step in a plan to in-
crease efforts to increase the
availability of cross-enrollment
and credit transfers between the
state schools. They approved "in
principle," a plan worked out by
the schools' extension directors
"to allow freer change of credit,"
Niehuss said.
Implementation of the cross-
enrollment principle, applying
mainly to master's degree candi-
dates, will be at the option of each
school's governing board.
Cut Duplication
Presidents' Council Chairman,
President James Miller of Western
Michigan University, noted that
this is one way to eliminate un-
necessary duplication of courses.
Niehuss reported "nothing but
informal discussion" by the con-
ference of the issue of controver-
sial speakers on state-supported
campuses. He said he passed out
copies of the University's new pol-
icy on off-campus speakers to the
members present, but added that
the group was not in a position to
take a stand on the question, at
least until the Michigan Coordin-
ating Council for Higher Educa-
tion, presently debating the prob-
lem, has come to a decision.
LSA Receives
Federal Aid
For Honors
The literary college has been
awarded a $69,595 federal grant to
help hbnors students do a greater
quantity and better quality inde-
pendent research and study.
The grant was awarded to the
literary college honors program y
the National Science Foundation,
and is intended for use by honors
students in science, mathematics,
and interdisciplinary areas. ,'
Prof. Otto Graf of the German
department, head of the honors
program, will direct the NSF grant
distribution and the direction of
the independent research program.

Governor Faees

The three candidates for con-
gressman-at-large debated federal
aid to education, medicare, and'
the Cuban crisis before the Lea-
gue of Women Voters yesterday.
GOP candidate Alvin Bentley
said that this country should ,not
waste another opportunity as it
did in the Bay of Pigs invasion.
He suggested a blockade of Cuba
modelled after the World War II
blockade of Germany.
"A blockade is not an act of- war
unless the other sides see the ac-
tion this way," Bentley noted.
Staebler's Views
His Democratic rival Neil Staeb-
ler said that Bentley was more
moderate than he was in a sim-
ilar session last Friday in Flint.
"On Friday Bentley was for
shooting at ships, now he is for
action under the Organization of
American States-something that
will take a long time," he noted.
Staebler called Republican talk'
about blockades "a grandstand
plan" and said that the United
Statesshould remember that Cuba
is part of a larger Latin American'
problem, that action must be
taken in concert with other South
American nations.
The United States, he said, is
using and should continue to exer-
cize its great world advantage.
Both Staebler and Bentley in-
dicated their support for federal
aid to education on the primary,


with the five sororities that have submitted inadequate membership
statements at its meeting onigh.
SGC will also discuss the desirability and method of filling -the
five student seats on the Advisory Committee for the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs.
In addition, Vice-President of Students Affairs James A. Lewis and
John Bingley, director of Student Organizations and Discipline, will
speak on the recent restructuring '

Extension Service
Meets New Trend
Year-round operations, mushrooming enrollments, new
community colleges: these are some of the most important edu-
cational patterns emerging in Michigan.
These "new factors" are currently undergoing close scrutiny
from the University's Extension Service to determine what ad-
justments it might have to make in order to continue provid-
ing special education programs for individuals outside the Ann
Arbor campus, Extension Service Director Everett J. Soop
noted recently.
His organization will have to contend with upcoming year-
round operations, at other colleges within the state as well as
the University.
Rearrange Courses
For just as classes on central campus must be inserted
into the shortened-semester scheme of things, so must Extension
Service rearrange its courses, Soop points out.
At present, many of the students taking extension programs
are high school teachers desiring further education. Courses for
these individuals must begin past the middle of September, after
the secondary schools have begun their year.
But with the University's fall term under year-round oper-
ations ending before Christmas instead of at the end of January,
the extension programs must either be curtailed in content or
the class hour lengthened. The latter alternative will probably
be taken, Soop says.
A more difficult problem appears, however, in coordinating
extension programs between two colleges with differing semester

approval the procedure for hear-
ings with the five delinquent sor-
orities. Stockmeyer will propose
that hearings be held in executive
session, unless the sorority re-
quests an open hearing.
During the hearing, three ques-
tions would be asked: Is the Coun-
cil's report concerning the failure
of this sorority to submit an ade-
quate membership statement com-
plete and true? Is the sorority in
violation of the procedures to in-
sure adequate membership selec-
tice statmeents? And if so, what
action, if any, should be taken?

Raid Season
Starts Anew
A small group of about 300 men
charged up the Hill for the year's
first panty-raid last night.
The yelling throng picked off
a couple dozen souvenirs along
with frilly pieces of tissue paper.
The raid started at East Quad-
rangle, where a group of Hinsdale

of Strauss House shouting the
traditional "To the Hill!" About
