Seventy-Two Years of Editorial Freedom


UStarts New College Studies

Foes for Governorship

Differ on

Tax Reform

The establishment of a "new
college," separate in administra-
tion and physical facilities from
any undergraduate unit now on
campus, but linked to the academ-
ic traditions of the literary college
throigh faculty and course offer-
ings, is still in the earliest of its
planning stages.
Though it has been under con-
sideration for nearly a century,
the proposal for the new under-
graduate division has been brought
neither to the literary-college fac-
ulty as a whole, nor to the col-
lege's student body, for comment
and criticism.

Prof. Theodore Newcomb of the
psychology department, head of
an informal faculty group, charg-
ed with modifying the initial plan
for the new college, indicated that
the group will try and learn for-
mally the faculty's opinion of the
proposal as soon as such contact
can be made.
Two, Three Years
He also said it would be possible
for the new college to be opera-
tional within two or three years-
although, he stressed, this would
mean it would function initially
in Angell and Mason Halls, not
in its own buildings.
"This arrangement would be bet-
ter than nothing, although the
curriculum committee would still

want to try it as a residential col-
lege, separate from the main cam-
pus. In fact, I think we'd like to
see it tried both ways," Prof. Wil-
bur McKeachie of the psychology
department, chairman of the cur-
riculum committee, which worked
out the initial proposal for the new
college, explained.
He added that he felt the pre-
dicted enrollment for the new col-
lege of about 2,000 might be a little
high, and said he would rather see
between 200 and 1,600 students
enrolled in the first year of its
"The freshman class in this new
college would be about ,500. The
remainder would naturally be
sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

"Admissions would most likely be
on a voluntary basis-if more stu-
dents applied than we anticipate
would, it would mean we'dihave to
consider building more such units,"
Prof. McKeachie said.
Not Honors
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger W. Heyns added that
the selection of the first students
in the new college would be ran-
dom, and stressed that it would not
become an "honors college," open.
only to students in the literary
college honors program, but would
rather have both honors and non-
honors students in about the same
proportions as there are currently
in the literary college.
Heyns also said he had hopes

that this new college, if success-
ful, would be the first of a series
of small residential colleges. Even-
tually, he added, each of these
would have its own academic "fla-
Associate Dean of the Literary
College James Robertson agreed
that selection of the first students
in the college would be random,
and also agreed that th ecollege
"as it is planned now would not
be designed only for honors stu-
Heyns and Robertson indicated
that the college would have closer
ties with the residence hall sys-
tem, which has been criticized
from time to time as non or anti-
intellectual in nature.

Legion Calls for Investigation-

Tirrell Leaves Position
With A lumni Association
General Secretary of the University Alumni Association John E.
Tirrell has resigned his post to become vice-president for instruction
of the Junior College District in St. Louis, Mo.
The announcement was unexpected and left the Alumni Associa-
tion in what its president, Frank J. Ortman called "a state of
emergency." Tirrell had given no previous indication of this move.

Flint AAUP t Statement
Opposes Censorship Policy
The Flint Chapter of the American Association of University
Professors has, unanimously adopted a statement objecting, to the
suspension of the "College Clamor," student newspaper of Flint
Community Junior College.
The paper was suspended last week by FCJC Dean Lewis Fibel and
Superintendent of City Schools Lawrence Jarvie, pending the imple-
7 mentation of policies to govern

discusses Camus

the publication.
The AAUP statement was pre-
sented yesterday at a meeting be-
tween Fibel and the FCJC Publi-
cations Board.
Three Objections
The AAUP cited three objections
to the Clamor's suspension:
1) The paper is not really guil-
ty of any violation of policy or
improper use of the paper as no
specific charges have been made;
The supression of the paper to
protect or satisfy unnamed criti-
cism is contrary to democratic
principles which are taught in the
2) The suspension is not edu-
cationally sound as it creates a
poor climate for students to learn
to correct errors and it violates
democratic principles w h i c h
should be taught; and
3) The Flint Board of Educa-
tion has magnified criticism rather
than shielded the editors from it,
jeopardizing higher education in
Unrealistic Conformity
The group charged that the
new policy is administratively un-
realistic difficult to interpret and
aimed at enforcing conformity.
The AAUP said that it was
issuing its statement to make the
faculty position opposing the Fibel
action clear to the public.
Dean Fibel refused to comment
on the statement.
No Conclusions
In addition, Fibel and the Pub-
lications Board discussed clarifi-
cations of phrasing and imple-
mentation of the policy statement
issued last week by Fibel. How-
ever, no definite conclusions were

parently convinced the local post
to recommend an investigation of
Communism at the University," he
"The excuse for such a recom-
mendation is the emergence of
'leftist' groups here ,recently. We
assume the Legion has in mind
the Progressive Labor Club.
"But this is a very lame, very
puny reason for an 'investigation,'
since the labor group is compara-
tively very lame and very puny.
Ignore Demand
"We hope the university will ig-
nore this irresponsible demand, as
it has others in the past, and de-
vote its full attention to the busi-
ness of education."
The resolution was introduced by
Col. Henry Royall, a retired Army
officer. Members of his post pre-
dicted that the resolution will get
state-wide Legion approval. They
feel an investigation into Commu-
nist activities will not be harmful
to the university's reputation. The
Legionnaires stress that an inves-
tigation in itself does- not mean
there are extensive Communist ac-
tivities on the campus.
Clotfelter, in his editorial, called
Royall the "most intemperate of
Chapel Hill Redhunters," and the
American Legion the "brave de-
fender of civil-liberties-for-every-,
See Apparitions
Clotfelter also condemned the
Durham Sun for printing an edi-
torial which claimed that the Com-
munist Party was running a tele-
phone campaign, attempting to re-
cruit students on the North Caro-
lina campus.
"We assumed, perhaps presump-
tuously, that such a neditorial
would have some facts to back it
up. Apparently our assumption was
false," Clotfelter. wrote.
"If your original editorial was
written just to fill space, we cer-
tainly understand. But may we
suggest you pick a less serious top-
ic for your next editorial filler,"
the Tar Heel editor concluded.
"Such apparitions are often seen
by Legionnaires and this time ap-
pears to be little different," the
Tar Heel editorial charged.

By Moravesik
"'The Stranger' is .the man who
refuses to regard anyone else as
a means and who refuses to regard
himself as an object," said Prof.
Julius M. Moravcsik of the Phil-
osophy department yesterday.
Speaking at the fourth session
of the Student Government Coun-
cil reading and discussing pro-
gram, Prof. Moravcsik-outlined the
existential philosophy Camus em-
bodies in his works.
He explained that this philos-
ophy denies the existence of an
"essence of man," of a purpose of
life. In contrast, Kant's philos-
ophy, for example, claims that
rationality is the essence of man,
and man is therefore the means
toward a goal and has a purpose
in life in striving toward this goal.
Prof. Moravcsik explained that
to treat something as a means is
to objectify, "to consider yourself
as a subject, and someone else as
an object" through which to work
for a purpose. When someone de-
nies the existence of a purpose,
as the stranger does, that person
looses his objectification with

other object becomes strange to

To Consider
On 'Clamor'
Student Government Council
will tonight consider a motion
by Howard Abrams, '63, condemn-
ing the recent suspension of "The
College Clamor" at Flint Com-
munity Junior College..
Abrams' proposal asserts "that
students are competent to pub-
lish a newspaper with ability and
merit" and "that censorship of
opinions is anthithetical to the
most basic nature of an institution
of higher learning."
Council will also hear a pro-
posal by Tom Brown, '63BAd, to
alter the functions of the Com-
mittee on Membership in Student
This motion would empower the
committee*"to investigate any
written clauses which are directly
discriminatory" and "to investigate
any cases in which two written
and signed complaints about one
organization are deemed worthy
of investigation."
These new functions would not
be asbroad as the ones they are
intended to replace. At present,
the committee can receive and
investigate any chrges of discrim-
ination and can also initiate in-
vestigation of any group which
might possibly discriminate.

Ortman indicated that although
he was momentarily taken aback,
Tirrell's resignation would not pre-
vent the present - work of the
Alumni Association from going
forward. "If we are faced with an
emergency we are the kind of
people to roll up our sleeves and.
get to work," he said.
Well Wishes
"Tirrell is a man of outstanding
ability and we wish him well in
his new position. We will have a
difficult time trying to find some-
one to replace him." Ortman also
said that the executive committee
would have to meet to consider
the qualities they would be look-
ing for in a new man. "If such
a man can be found," he added.
President Harlan Hatcher voiced
his regret at Tirrell's decision. "St.'
Louis could not have picked a
finer man."
Tirrell became secretary of the
Alumni Association in 1958. He
holds an WA degree from the Uni-
versity and a doctorate in edu-
cation at Harvard. Director of the
Development Council, Alan W.
MacCarthy, said he felt Tirrell's
greatest interest always had been
in education and that this new
post was a wonderful opportunity
for him.
Curriculum Development
In his new position, Tirrell will
have charge of curriculum develop-
ment, teacher selection, and teach-
er supervision for the first public
college in an area of 500 square
miles in the St. Louis County area.
15,000 to 20,000 students are ex-
pected to enroll on at least three
campuses by 1970-75.
Since Tirrell accepted the job
of Alumni Secretary, he has
expanded the budget and the scope
of the association.

Democratic Rival
Clains ,Responsibility
For Jobless Decline
Michigan's gubernatorial can-
idates, Republican George Rom-
ey and Democratic incumbent
John B. Swainson, took their
ampaigns before the television
ameras last night.
In the first of three scheduled
elevison debates, Swainson stuck
to the record of his administra-
ion and deplored his opponent's
laims to leadership. Romney has .
insisted he alone could "put an
end to partisan bickering" and
accomplish necessary tax reforms.
Debate became most heated on
the unemployment issue. In his
opening statement Swainson said
that during the past year his ad-
ministra'tion had put 280,000 more
people to work while decreasing
he unemployed to 4.9 per cent
as compared to a national rate
of 5.9.
'Dangerous to Michigan'
Romney charged that "the mis-
leading information used in this
campaign is dangerous to Michi-
gan. Two years ago, he said,
there were 81,000 more people em-
ployed than today and "126,000
since gave'up trying to find jobs,"
making for a total of 9.2 per
cent left out of the work force.
"One of the casualties of any
campaign is the truth," Swainson
countered. "There are more em-
ployed now." Romney insistedhis
figures "are, accurate" and chal-
lenged Swainson to prove other-
wise. Both claimed to have the
latest figures from the Michigan
Employment Security Commission..
Swainson said that Democratic
programs have given the auto-
mobile industry its recent boost,
since workers "must have the
money to buy." Romney attributed
increased auto sales to "private
initiative" and the effect of the
compact car on the market.
'Job Creators'
Swainson called for state gov-
ernment to "encourage job creat-
ors" and "end hostility to em-
ployers. "I'm glad Romney as-
sumes all credit for the upsurge
of the economy." He declared
"testimony from any employer in
the state" would refute Romney's
On leadership Swainson charged
Romney was "turned down by his
own party as president of the con-
stitutional convention, sold out to
D. Hale Brake (R-Stanton) and
was repudiated by the election
of Dick Durant, 14th district Re-
publican vice-chairman.
The major issue, Romney said,
was leadership and that Swain-
son's self-avowed strong points-
economic development, better re-
lations with the legislature, and
a better image for the state-are
really his weak points.
Swainson said the main issue
was that the Republican party
"has neither understood nor can
understand the state's problems"
while Democrats "with the help
of the Kennedy administration
are trying to solve state woes."

The Ann Arbor City Council
made appointments to two study
committees and to the Human Re-
lations Commission Monday.

Three Walt Whitmans Converge in AF

Three separate Walt Whitmans, interacting and discussing past
experiences, have been created by playwright-in-residence Richard
Baldridge for his drama "We, Comrades Three," to show the develop-
ment of the great American poet.
Whitman's best poetry comes when the three facets of Whitman
-the adolescent, the middle-aged Walt, and the old man-fuse
together, Baldridge explained. The old man in the play is trying
to reconcile the parts of his life into a unified, contented whole,
and summons his former personalities together so they may find
+ia " +vmtat Pnser" for the overall person.
