ASPECTS AND PROBLEMS:
Views Indonesian Language

V

By MICHAEL SATTINGER

The development by Bahasa-
Indonesia, a language group so-
ken by Indonesians and Malyans,
was viewed recently by Prof. An-
dries Teeuw, a visiting professor
in Far Eastern Studies.
Prof. Teeuw, author of "Modern
Indonesian Literature," began with
a discussion of the name "Bahasa-
Indonesia," which is the national
language. The term has a rather
ambiguous meaning since it refers
both to one language and also
to the languages in the areas
around Indanesia, which number
over 200.
"The languages are related, with
some more closely and others more
distantly related," Prof. Teeuw
said. "Today, Bahasa-Indonesia,
a new name for Malay, refers to
the one common language accept-
ed as the national language of the
Republic," Prof. Teeuw said.
Post-War Changes
"However, this language has
been changed a great deal since

NDEA Grant
Availabil ity
By DENISE WACKER
Application materials for can-
didates for graduate fellowships in
modern languages of "critical" im-
portance to the United States, or
in studies related to the countries
in which they are spoken, are
currently available in the Area
Centers Office, 1227 Angell Hall.
The fellowships, offering a min-
imum stipend of $2700 a year,
will be awarded this coming spring
for the summer or for the 1963
semester, by the Office of Educa-
tion under the National Defense
Education Act.
NDEA language grants are not
restricted to students working for
degrees in a foreign language,
Prof. William Schorger of the an-
thropology department, chairman
of the University National Defense
Foreign Language Fellowship
Committee, said yesterday.
Exotic Languages
The grants are, however, re-
stricted, to full-time graduate stu-
dents taking a "standard load in
one of the exotic' languages list-
ed by the NDEA," he said.
Of the more than 70 languages
on the NDEA list, the University
offers courses in 10, including
Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Persian,
Turkish, Spanish, Russian, Hindi-
Urdu, Tha, and Pashto.
Each applicant will be screened
by a committee composed of mem-
bers of the language and area
studies department. Their recom-
mendations are forwarded to the
University Committee, which sends
it on to Washington, where for-
mal and final approval is granted
or -ithheld.
In-Group Decision
However, 95 per cent of the
" decision is made by the Univer-'
sity," Prof. Schorger said.
The deadline for applicants
submitting the NDEA forms in
January 18, 1963.
Prof. Schorger noted that by ac-
cepting one of the fellowships, the
student does not obligate himself
to entering government service.
Pick Committee
For Senior Night
The Women's League has chos-
en the following members of the
C e n t r a 1 Committee for this
spring's Senior Night: General
Chairman, Marion Jackson; Asst..
General Chairman, Nancy Kings-
land; Publicity Chairman, Anne
Leavengod; Tickets, Ruth Burt;
Entertainment, Katie Harri ; Pro-
grams, Ann Hannon; Patrons,
Carolyn Savage.

Indonesia became a republic in
1945," he added. "Important sruc-
tural changes in the language ae
beginning to become evident."
"The Malay language was not
the most culturally important crr
even the most widely-spoken lan-
guage. But it had already been the
language used between tribes and
with foreigners," he stated.
"As a medium of culture, Malay
was highly respected. It was also
the language of religion. Malay
was used in the spread of Islam
and Christianity," Prof. Teeuw
continued.
Forbidden Language
Although Dutch was the colonial
language in modern times, its use
was forbidden during the Japanese
occupation in the Second World
War. "Thus in 1945 when the
Republic was created there was no
opposition to the acceptance of
Malay, with the new name of
Bahasa-Indonesia, as the national
language," he explained.
"It has been used in all layers
of society since 1945. It had a
strong unifying effect on the te-
public of Indonesia," Prof. Teeuw
observed.
But difficulties arose in the use
of the language. Millions had
never spoken Malay before, and
terminology lagged far behind the
needs of modern society. "More
serious were the threats to the
grammatical structure of the lan-
guage," he claimed.
For instance, in the newspapers,
what was needed was general
Cites Roles
Of Council
For Grads
By STEVEN HALLER
The Interdisciplinary Scholars
Council was formed last year for
the expressed purpose of looking
out for the interests of the ad-
vanced graduate student, accord-
ing to its president, Ronald E. Sea-
voy, Grad.
Seavoy explains that at the
time the council was formed, he
and the other members took upon
themselves the burden of the tasks
to which they felt the Graduate
Students Council was not devoting
enough attention. These matters
included taking care of new book
acquisitions, library hours and
study conditions.
Balanced View
Perhaps the most important
duty of IDSC at late, however, has
been the service of providing stu-
dents on State Department schol-
arships at the English Language
Institute with a balanced view of
the United States.
Under the ELI teacher-educa-
tion program, future teachers of
English from various foreign coun-
tries come to the University to
study problems of phonetics,
grammar, and linguistics. Unfor-
tunately, however, many of them
come here with a distorted view
of various aspects of the Ameri-
can way of life, Seavoy adds.
The ELI has little opportunity
to aid these students in correcting
any false impressions of the Unit-
ed States they may have.
Business to Race
The ELI and IDSC, it should be
pointed out, are not officially con-
nected in any way, and in fact
others than members of IDSC
have addressed the students. How-
ever, IDSC has a reservoir of tal-
ent necessary to do the job and
has supplied speakers on topics
ranging from the structure of
American business to race rela-
tions in the United States.
The IDSC lecturers are all ad-
vanced students enrolled at the
University, and they do not rep-
resent a consistent political point
of view.

readibility. "Grammatical correc-
tions were not a matter of much
importance," he said.
"Bahasa-Indonesia will need to
develop for a long time before it
settles down," Prof. Teeuw con-
cluded.

OXFORD-Chancellor J. D. Wil-
liams of the University of Mis-
sissippi has pledged "swift and
drastic disciplinary action, includ-
ing expulsion from the university,"
for violation of university regula-
tions by students protesting the
presence of Negro James A. Mere-
dith.
i He specifically cited recent in-
cidents involving the possession
and shooting of fireworks, posses-
sion of firearms and ammunition,
throwing of bottles and other
missiles, and the use of obscene
and profane language.

Man's "disastrous effect" on the
animal world is such that "there
is not a single natural community
of animals today," he said. Even
the best efforts of man to save
animals fail, because "relic spe-

tected in West India, are fragile,"
Prof. Newell said.

existing with Man, until recently.

With only two hours' notice, no
rehearsals, and only a vague fa-
miliarity with "Princess Ida", La-
vetta Loyd, '64M, became the Cin-
derella of the Gilbert and Sulli-
van Society Thursday night.
When leading lady Nancy Hall,
'65, was admitted to Health Serv-
ice with mononucleosis an hour
before curtain time Thursday, Miss
Loyd agreed to take her place.
Miss Loyd had played Lady
Psyche in "Princess Ida" at the
National Music Camp three years
ago, but had no idea of the leading
role. She managed to go on in
what Jay Cranston, head of G&S
called an "almost memorable per-
formance, especially under such
circumstances."
Miss Loyd sang all of Thursday
night's performance with script
in hand. She has been working
with music director Dr. Rosella
Duerksen and dramatics director
Gershom Clark Morningstar since
then to prepare herself for the re-
maining performances.

Announce
Transfer
By BARBARA LAZARUS
The secretariat of the Big Ten
Residence Hall Presidents Associ-
ation was officially removed from
the University campus and trans-
ferred to Michigan State Univer-
sity last Saturday.
Assembly Association President
Mary Beth Norton, '64, said that
"the motion to remove the secre-
tariat from Michigan was unani-
mous except for Northwestern
University which was not present
and the dissenting vote from the
University delegation." The action
took place at the meeting of the
Big Ten Presidents at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota.
"Last spring, in a similar action,
an attempt to remove the secre-
tariat failed. The concensus was
that Michigan ought to have a
chance to fulfill the newly defined
responsibility of the secretariat."
The secretariat position, which
was held by Mary Whitney, '64, is
the only continuing position in the
Association, due to the annual
turnover of residence hall presi-
dents, Miss Norton noted.
"The job involves writing and
providing information to all Big
Ten campuses and exchanging
material on such programs as coed
housing."
The constitution of the Associa-
tion was revised so that the secre-
tariat position now consists of an
executive secretary and a treas-
urer. The past position was han-
died only by an executive secre-
tary.
The new constitution was most-
ly rewritten from a chartec draft
done by Inter-Quadrangle Coun-
cil President Robert Geary, '64E,
Assembly Second Vice-President
Lois Fisher, '64, and Miss Whit-
ney, Miss Norton noted.
"The presidents also approved
plans for next spring's conference
which will be held at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin. The University
bid for a fall, 1963, convention was
also approved."
This bid for the conference next
fall was gained over another one
by MSU, she said.
The presidents heard an address
by Minnesota Dean of Students
E. G. Williamson at a Saturday
night banquet on academic free-
dom. During the day, they attend-
ed operational and business meet-
ings.

SGC requested that the Driving
Code Committee continue efforts
to obtain a "specific commitment
from the administration on a date

for the construction of a student
parking structure."
Council also made the two stu-
dent appointnnets to the Commit-
tee on Referral. Al Haber, Grad.,
and Thomas Moch, Grad., re-
ceived the appointments.
A motion mandating the next

if SGC can get a larger grant from

To Evaluate
Law School
In a desire "to keep the law
school program alert to the prob-
lems the profession faces" in the
nation, a group of forty alumni is
in Ann Arbor this week for attend-
ance at classes and meetings with
administrators and professors of
the University's Law School.
Dean Allan F. Smith of the law
school, in announcing the three
day meeting, hoped that "a rep-
resentative group from the legal
profession would becomie acquaint-
ed in substantial detail with the
total program of the Law School."
He hoped the Law School would
profit from their "collective wis-
dom."
.Dean Smith and Associate Dean
Charles W. Joiner, who is in charge
of the program, noted that this is
the first such evaluation in the
law school's history. They both
hope to make this visit of alumni,
practicing law all over the coun-
try, an annual event.
The Committee of Visitors, in-
cluding 40 members from Michi-
gan and out-of-state, made the
trip at their own expense. They
were appointed by University Pres-
ident Harlan Hatcher on the rec-
ommendation of the Lawyers Club.
Ralph Carson, of New York City,
president of the Lawyers Club, is
committee chairman for the event.

By JEFFREY K. CHASE
The Baha'i World Faith views
the world as a sick organism in
which the troubles such as Cuba,
are manifestations of this sickness,
Winston G. Evans, noted Baha'i
authority, said in a lecture Thurs-
day evening.
Man must suffer pain before
the world is cured of its afflictions
and although the world picture
will get blacker, Baha'u'llah, in
whom can be found the origin of
the Baha'i faith, promised that
universal peace would be establish-
ed in this century, Evans continu-
ed.
It is the world situation that
creates the necessary conditions
for the unification of mankind.
The kingdom of God on earth will
not come suddenly; it is an evolu-
tionary process. By chastising us
because he is just and by punish-
ing us because he is loving, God,
prepares us for a "very, very great
future"-world unity, Evans ex-
plained.
Torch of Guidance
God's purpose is to usher in,

The present is dark, but the im-
mediate future is "radiantly glor-
ious." It is the duty of every
Baha'i "to hold aloft the torch
of divine guidance," he noted.
Baha'u'llah said that God be-
gan uniting the world on a small
scale. First it was the family, then
the tribe, the state, and the na-
tion. The next step is the unifica-
tion of the world and then the
universe, Evans stated.
The knowledge of the will of
God in the age in which a person
lives is the most important know-
ledge for that person. In this age
the will of God advocates world
unity. This is not opposed to
Jesus who said: "Thy kingdom
come, Thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven," Evans ex-
plained.
Self-Dissatisfaction
If the crisis seems unprecedent-
ed today, the available spiritual
power is unlimited, Evans said.
To be dissatisfied with one's self
is a sign of progress. The greater
the task, the greater the challenge

less we lose faith in God. If Gool
and his cause come first in our
lives, we have nothing to fear.
Baha'u'llah says that the approval
of God should be one's main goal
in life. There is a way out but
it is God's way," Evaris continue-..
Today man needs a dynamic
spiritualism whicn is capable of
"sweeping him off his feet and
carrying him by streams of en-
thusiasm." A mild form of religion
won't transform human nature-
"A little light is conducive to
sleep." But "a careful and prayer-
ful reading of Baha'i literature
will quicken anyone's belief in
God," Evans stated.
"Only those who believe that
God is the lord of history and
sovereign ruler of the universe will
be interested in the Baha'i faith.
Baha'is observe history with refer-
ence to temporal man and eternal
God. If necessary, God vill raise
up a new race of men to achieve
his goal of world unity," Evans
said.
