years away.
The University relations office
carries out its responsibility of
interpreting the University to the
People of Michigan through sev-
eral divisions.
It operates WUOM, the Univer-
sity's FM station in' Ann Arbor
and WPGR, a recently acquired
FM station in Grand Rapids. The
stations, on the air approximately
10 hours a day, present news,
classical music, both recorded and
live from the University, drama
and lectures and special interest'
programs originating here.
The Television Center is also
operated by the office. The center
is not a broadcasting station, in-
stead it produces filmed programs
for use by commercial and other
educational stations.
Academic Gamut
Its programming runs the aca-
demic gamut from the humanities
to the sciences. The center also
produced the University's most re-'
cent propaganda film, "The Idea
of Michigan," a partially live, par-
tially animated account of the di-
versity of the University and the
ideal of a well-financed, indepen-
dent University necessary to pro-
duce this result.
Relating the day-to-day activi-
ties of the University is News Ser-
vice. Its releases tell of many
things - from tuition raises and
Regental decisions to light-heart-
ed notes about the oddities of
science and the arts.
News Service also supplies pho-
tos to illustrate University hap-

other written means of interpret-

Its range extends from the Daily
Official Bulletin which appears

The SRC advises the vice-presi-
dent for student affairs in matters
of policy.
OSA Recommendations
"The new OSA structure was, in
part, the results of continued con-
sultation between Vice-President
James A. Lewis, the SRC and the
Reed Committee. The Reed Com-
mittee was, in effect, an off-shoot
of SRC work."
The SRC also has regular meet-
ings with members of the student
body ,and issues its reports to the

"The committee was set up ini-
tially to oversee the Regents' By-
law on discrimination, but its
function has since grown to be
more broadly conceived."
Student Interest
However, Prof. Sawyer stressed
that this isn't the only committee
which has an interest in students.
"Too often, The Daily empha-
sizes student government and cam-
pus politics: we're interested in
education," he said.
There are five subcommittees
which effect the kind and quality
of education at the University.
The work of these groups is ex-
tremely important, for it consti-
tutes much of the long-range plan-
ning at the University.
Proposes Teaching Center
For example, a Senate subcom-
mittee offered a proposal this year
for a center for teaching to study
methods of bridging the gap be-
tween being educated and educat-
ing. This research project is cur-
rently being studied for possible
implementation in the next few
years. -
There also is a subcommittee on
staff excellence, whose "function
is to see how you make a better
faculty. It investigates means of
luring better people into higher
education. This committee, like the
majority of subcommittees changes
in structure and function each
year," Prof. Sawyer continued.
There are also two committees
which deal with the problems of
Information Committee
The first, the Information Com-
mittee, deals with faculty com-
munications within the Univer-
sity. It puts out a faculty publi-
cation, "Senate Affairs," about
once every three weeks.
It also carries out faculty for-
ums (about four each -year)-dis-
cussion groups which debate key

faculty-administration policy is-
The other related committee is
concerned with public relations,
and works closely with the Uni-
versity Director of Public Rela-
tions Michael Raddock.
Atmosphere of Freedom
The Committee on Academic
Freedom, chaired by Prof. John
Reed of the law school, insures that
an atmosphere of freedom of ex-
pression of minority and conflict-
ing opinions may exist.
Currently, the academic freedom
subcommittee is studying the

Tops Capital Outlay Plans

(Continued from Page 1)

As a result, several schools will
eventually move to North Campus,
and those left behind will have
more space. Each school or col-
lege will then be able to cluster its
activities around one nucleus of
In accord with this concept, the
University's tentative long-range
plans include moving the Colleges
of Architecture and Design, Engi-
neering, and Music to North Cam-
pus, and adding new residence
halls and eating facilities there.
Meanwhile, Central Campus would
be reorganized to use the vacated
space more effectively.
Monetary Problems
The second problem for Univer-
sity planners is finding money
for new construction. John Mc-
Kevitt, assistant to the vice-presi-
dent for business and finance, says
that the University relies on four
main sources of building funds:
1) About 50 per cent of the
physical plant is built with state
appropriations. Each August, the
Regents submit a capital outlay
budget to the Governor. This is a
list of its requests for state funds
for building and renovation.
The Governor studies this list
and submits it to the Legislature
along with his recommendations.
The Legislature then sets the Uni-
versity capital outlay for the year,
usually completing this action by
1962-63 Outlay
The 1962-63 capital outlay, to-
taling $3.85 million, will finance
the Physics-Astronomy Bldg., the
Music School Bldg., and renova-
tions of the Medical Center and
University heating plant.

2) Self-liquidating projects are
financed by borrowing, and consti-
tute about 28 per cent of the Uni-
versity plant.
These are projects which will
pay for themselves upon comple-
tion by bringing in revenues-such
as the Oxford Housing Project,
which will make good its loan
through resident fees.
Private Donations
3) Gifts from private groups and
individuals constitute about 17-18
per cent of University facilities,
including such landmarks as the
Law Quadrangle and Burton Tow-
er. However, 'McKevitt notes that
the amount of gifts has not kept
pace with the expanded amount
of funds coming from other sourc-
4) Federal aid, though only com-
prising about 2 per cent of the
present plant, is a fast-growing
source of funds for construction.
So far, Federal funds have been
largely for research facilities, such
as the Human Genetics Research
Center (financed partly through
private gifts) and the Kresge Med-
ical Research Addition, to be con-
structed soon.
McKevitt points out that only
about 46 per cent of the Univer-
sity's floor space is in research-
instruction facilities. Noting such
diverse holdings as Willow Run
Airport and the Medical Center,
he explains, "the nature of an in-
stitution as advanced and sophis-
ticated as the University dictates
that we invest in many types of
facilities, including residence halls,
student activity facilities, adminis-
tration buildings, and an athletic

whole structure of the University
in relation to faculty responsibil-
ity in this area.
There are other committees,
most of which insure faculty mem-
ber's rights, like the Tenure Com-
mittee, or the Committee on Eco-
nomic Status of the Faculty,
which advises the administration
on faculty fringe benefits.
The faculty also exercises con-
trol over admissions requirements
and distribution requirements to
make sure that the University and
its students will constantly improve
in quality.

lion short of what the Regents
had requested.
Capital Outlay
Capital outlay comes in a sep-
arate legislative measure. This
year the University was given
$3.85 million to underwrite re-
modeling of the Medical Center
-and heating plant, continued work
on the Physics and Astronomy
Building and to start a new Music
School Building on North Cam-
Niehuss worked closely with leg-
islators in all these matters, testi-
fying before the appropriations
committee and conferring with
them in private on the amount he
feels the University had to receive
to maintain itself.
This year, the $1.3 million in-
crease over last year's appropria-
tion, plus the hike in student tui-
tion, was enough to raise the sal-
aries of faculty members and non-
academic employes.
Loses VRC
Niehuss and the University lost
one major battle with the State
Legislature, however, for the Vet-
erans Readjustment Center was
ordered to cease operating. The
University had operated the VRC
for 14 years. During this time, the
state had financed all psychiatric
treatment for the veterans by Uni-
versity physcians.
The Center's patients have been
transferred to a soldiers' home in
Grand Rapids.
Another factor in the appropri-
ations struggle was a study by the
University of out-of-state student
Enrollment Agreement
Two senators agreed with the
University on an agreement to
limit this percentage, although no
specified proportion was set. Nie-
huss currently is continuing study
of this problem, and the situation
remains unclear.
Another one of the executive
vice-president's prime duties is to
work with the Coordinating Coun-
cil for Higher Education. Com-
posed of the president and board
member from each of the 10 state-
supported schools, the council
meets about four times a year to
discuss common problems between
the universities and with the
Niehuss usually attends the
meetings, and advises University
President Harlan Hatcher on the
issues considered by the council.
