HINDU DANCE-Uday Shankar is bringing his new Hindu dance
company to Ann Arbor-with a full complement of native musi-
cians and dancers. They will appear in Hill Aud. Tuesday.
rog am Notes

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a three part series on the prog-
ress of the Peace Corps.)
In its presentation to Congress
for the fiscal year 1962, the Peace
Corps estimated the all-inclusive
cost per volunteer to be approx-
imately $9,000.
This figure has proved to be
valid to date, and the corps be-
lieves that it continues to be the
best estimate for the annual cost
per volunteer. However, its com-
position has changed somewhat
from the original estimate.
In this analysis, the budget is
divided into two principle parts:
continuing costs of the 5,100 vol-
unteers entering training prior
to the end of August, 1962, and
fully or partially financed with
the 1962 funds; and costs of the
estimated 5,260 new volunteers en-
tering training after the end of
August, whose entry into service
is financed with 1963 funds.
Summer Training
The corps has found that train-
ing for most projects has to begin
during the summer months. The
reasons for this are that the larg-
est category of volunteer jobs is
teaching, and the school year in
most host countries begins in the
Also, summer training enables
members of high school and col-
lege graduating classes to plan
their senior year on Peace Corps
service after graduation. It per-
mits teachers to be recruited aid
enables the Corps to make max-
imum use of college campuses as
training sites.
Thus, the natural program phase
of the Peace Corps is from tle
beginning of September of any
year to the end of the following

Guild House Serves Campus
Through Seminars, Classes

There is a door in Ann Arbor
which is open to everyone.
Behind this door lies the chal-
lenge of discussion, or the relief
of solitude.
This door leads into the Guild
House. The Guild is an organiza-
tion sponsored by the Congrega-
tional, the Disciple, and the Evan-
gelical and the Reform churches.
Guild director and Congrega-
tional minister, the Rev. J. Edgar
Edwards, assisted by Nancy Prime,'
Spec, and Barbara Austin, '64,
stresses that the Guild services,
personal counseling, discussions,
and classes are open to every stu-

Rev. Edwards also emphasizes
the importance of scholarship.
T h e "challenging discussions"
Guild holds demonstrate his be-
lief in the maturity and percep-
tion of the student. Among the
discussion groups held at the
Guild are the Tuesday and Friday
lunches which provide a speech
by an outstanding member of the
faculty, or a visitor, followed by a
discussion period.
The Tuesday lunch centers on
a matter of ultimate concern

are Norman Thomas and Sen.
Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn).

quiry and Intellect," which is a

the engineering college will speak

Biological and Mechanical Re-
search Topics for Engineers in

August, with the majority of vol-
unteers entering training toward
the end of this period.
Make Commitments
Planning for this summer, intake
requires that programs be fully
developed, applicants recruited and
all commitments made at least
two months before the volunteers
are scheduled to enter training.
This means that, the necessary
contracts with private agencies
and universities for project ad-
ministration or for the training
of volunteers must be signed at
least this far in advance.
Programs utilizing approximate-
ly 5,110 volunteers are almost
completely developed and will re-
quire the full $30 million ap-
propriated for the fiscal year 1962.
Of the $63.75 million requested
for the fiscal year 1963, $32.39
million are required for the con-
tinuing costs of this portion of
the program.
It is anticipated that two-year
contracts with private agencies
and universities involving a total
of 1,060nvolunteers will have been
signed by the fiscal year 1962.
Budget Finances
The 500 volunteers entering duty
during the fiscal year 1962 under
contract administration with pri-
vate agencies and universities are
financed for two years at the time
the contract is signed, and thus
no funds are budgeted for the
fiscal year 1963.
It is planned to finance for two
years with fiscal year 1963 funds
some 600 volunteers entering duty
during the last ten months of
fiscal year 1963 under contracts
with private agencies and univer-
sities. The 1963 budget charge for
these volunteers is $10,000 each or
a total of $10.80 million.
Also planned are to have some
990 volunteers enter in the last
ten months of the fiscal year 1963
in direct, administration projects.
At a cost factor of $9,000 per man-
Syear, this gives a 1963 budget
charge of $3.96 million.
Sign Provision
President John F. Kennedy's
$63.75 million request makes prb-
vision for the entry into service
in July and August, 1963 of ap-
proximately 3,670 volunteers. The
fact that 400 volunteers will have
completed their two-year terms of
service by the end of August, 1963
means that the net summer input
will be only about 3,270 volunteers.
This level of activity for the
first two months of the fiscal
year 1964 is only slightly higher
than the level projected for early
1963, when 2,710 volunteers are
expected to be available for ser-
It follows from a judgment made
as of the close of the calendar
year 1961 that the Corps program
should attain the level of 6,700
volunteers by 1963 and that pro-
vision should be made in the 1963
budget as in the 1962 budget for
the continuation of the Corps ac-
tivities during the summer months
of 1963 at a level not substan-
tially different from that during
the summer months of 1962.
Further experience with the
program-particularly in terms of
foreign demand and volunteer
availability-may indicate within
the next six to nine months that
the level of activity now envisaged
for the first 'two months of the
fiscal year 1964 should be increas-
ed or decreased.
Plan Meeting
Of LSA Group
The literary college steering
committee will hold an open meet-
ing at 4 p.m. tomorrow in the
Angell Hall Conference Rm.
At the session, the committee
will discuss certain planned pro-
grams or changes pertinent to col-
lege, including the changes in reg-
istration and classification, and
possible improvements in the col-

lege's counseling systen.
It will also look into a suggested
"course evaluation booklet," and
discuss the tentative plans for the
proposed "New College."

A new mammoth specimen has
been 'unearthed in southwestern
It is "as complete a mammoth
specimen as ever was found in
Michigan," according to Prof.
Claude Hibbard, director of the
Paleontology Research Museum.
University paleontologists were
called in on Oct. 18 to investigate
this new fossil find at Eau Claire.
The remains were those of the
Jeffersonian Mammoth of the
female species.
Not quite half- of the bones
were found, but most of the skull
with several upper teeth asso-
ciated Was preserved. This is the
first time a skull has been found
in a Michigan specimen.
Prof. Hibbard has expressed the
hope of raising enough funds to
make a Carbon-14 testing, a dating
procedure, on the skull. Such a
testing would also be a first for
Michigan mammoths.

"An excellent suspense drama !" -FREE PRESS


From 1 P.M.



TONIGHT at 7:00 and 9:00
George Orwell's 1984
Edmond O'Brien, Michael Redgrave
SHORT: Mack Sennett's

(The Glory of God)
Followers of the Gospel
"Behold the gates of heaven are flung open.
He who is the LORD of lords is come."
A columnist once said that the biggest scoop of all time would be the
news of the return of Chrism. He was mistaken. The return of Christ
would never make the front page. The reasons is this:
When a man appears calling himself the Messiah, he does not
look as people expect him to look. There is no light around his
head-the light is added by pointers, long after he has died. He
eats, walks, talks. He comes from a community where he has been
known for years. And when he suddenly announces himself as a
prophet, as one with a new message from God, his community laughs
at him. Everybody knows, people say, that the Messiah will come
seated on a throne, or riding on a cloud, and will preach the some
religion that the priests are already preaching in the temples.
They laugh. The man continues to say that he is the servant of
a Spirit that he cannot resist. The laughter grows to anger. Why is
he so obstinate in his claim, this man they have known since he was
a child. A few listen to him, and bear the hatred of the rest. The
laughter stops. The hatred rises. The prophet is shut away-
chained-perhaps killed.
But his voice goes on. People far away listen to it. Then painters
draw the circle of light back of the head that is now earth, and men
and women in countries across the world build temples in the name
of the man whose own people put him to death.
This drama is played all over again, every once in a while in
human history. It has been played again, almost in our time. It did
not make the headlines.
