school officials know very little
about the University. They must
be educated along with the stu-
dents, Groesbeck said. Admission
requirements are stiffer for out-
state applicants and this factor
must be taken into consideration
when talking with prospective
students.
Visitation Program
I He discussed the High School
Visitation Program of the student
governors. This program has two
purposes: to serve high schools
in the area of the alumni club'
that the student governor repre-
sents and to serve students by
answering any questions they may
have about the University and
campus life in Ann Arbor .
Student governors must have a
clear understanding of the admis-
sion requirements of the Univer-
sity. The University sends infor-
mation to high schools, and stu-
dent governors need to be familiar
with this information.
Ranking Method
Groesbeck explained the method!
of ranking the freshman class and
said that the University has fewer!
flunk-outs in the freshman class
in comparison with other univer-
sities.
He also emphasized that the
University is not interested in re-
cruiting students. The student gov-
ernor should not talk high school
student into applying, but seek
out those already interested.
Groesbeck said that the admis-
sions office was very pleased with
the work that the student gover-
nors were doing in representing
the University. Various programs
are being devised where alumni,,
student governors and the admis-'
sions office work as a team.

SWARTHMORE - Alumni of
Kappa Sigma fraternity have
formed a group to aid the local
in its controversy with the na-
tional. The local is preparing plans
for autonomous operation and will
demand that national Kappa Sig-
ma change discriminatory policies
before it considers readmission to
the group.
ST. LOUIS-Prof. Saul Rosen-
zweig of Washington University
has completed a proficiency study
of foreign language requirements
for doctoral candidates. Such re-
quirements are "a mere gesture,
having little significance as a
measure of true learning," ac-
cording to Dr. Rosenzweig.
The professor of psychology and
medical philosophy concluded that
nearly two-thirds of degree hold-
ers had done no reading in the
supposedly learned language since
graduation, and that 70 per cent
made no oral use of the language.
CAMBRIDGE-Harvard Univer-
sity has appointed a high-level
committee to conduct a thorough
review of its general education
program.
"The principle of general edu-
cation is perhaps even more im-
portant today than in 1947 when
the program began," Dean Frank-
lin L. Ford explained. "One ques-
tion is whether, in the light of our
experience and the changing pace
of American education, we can
strengthen general education and
fit it still more securely, into the
college pattern."

MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL-The
University of Minnesota's Senate
Committee on Student Affairs has
vetoed a plan for three appear-

ances on campus by a CommunistI
and a socialist. The committee
will allow the two-one of whom
is Daniel Rubin, editor of Com-
munist Viewpoint-to participateI
in a panel discussion.

TOLEDO - The University of
Toledo has entered a cooperative
agreement with the National Aero-
nautics and Space Administration
which will enable the university
to utilize NASA research facilities
near Sandusky.

BOULDER-Both the University
of Colorado local of the American'
Federation of Teachers and the
university's student government
have passed resolutions blasting
a campus conservative publication,
The New Conservative, for pro-
posing to report as public lectures
the classes of professors who "per-
sist in using their classes as me-

dia for propagandizing their per-
sonal political or economic philos-
ophies at the expense of prescrib-
ed subject material."
AFT said the proposal amounts
to "a system of political spies with-
in the classrooms of the University
of Colorado."

MADISON-The Human Rights
Committee at the University of
Wisconsin has reversed its decision
recommending that Delta Gamma
be banned from the campus be-
cause. of national discrimination
policies. The sorority has submit-
ted a statement denying any racial
or religious discriminatory poli-
cies.

NEW YORK-Columbia Univer-
sity's College Committee on In-
struction has killed a proposal to
increase the language requirement
from two to three years.

Plane Reaches
'U' Scientists
A plane has reached a group of
University scientists reported mis-.
sing in Antarctica last month,
Prof. Charles Swithinbank of the
Glacial Geology and Polar Re-
search Laboratory said yesterday,
The six-man party at McMurdo
Station, the main United States
base in Antarctica, last reported
Nov. 13. A radio generator break-
down caused the loss of radio con-
tact.
Although two search planes were
sent to find the group, which is
studying the world's largest un-
broken mass of floating ice, Ross
Ice Shelf, it was not located until
Nov. 18.

GAIL RECTOR
. busy director
These first May Festivals were
so popular that railroads ran extra
trains with special rates to bring
people to Ann Arbor. Today, al-
though this service is no longer
necessary, the same state-wide
spirit prevails, Rector added.
Organized in 1879
The "Ann Arbor School of Mu-
sic" was organized in 1879 under
the auspices of the University
Musical Society. In 1892 it was
reorganized as the "University
School of Music." Then, in 1929,
the students and faculty were
given University status and partial
support. The society realized that
its concert activities were a full
time job and in 1940 relinquished
complete control of the music
school to the University. Until that
date the society sponsored all
campus concerts, including music
school faculty concerts, which are
now part of the music school,
Rector continued.
Rector majored in music litera-
ture. He returned after World War
II service to be assistant to Charles
A. Sink, president of the society.
In 1957 he was invited to assume
the newly created position of exe-
cutive director of the society. In
this capacity he has jurisdiction
over the administrative aspects of
the Society. His duties consist of
contracting the artists, arranging
the concert schedules, and coor-
dinating the promotion.

Friends of Student Non-violent
Co-ordinating Committee initiatedt
a week-long campaign yesterday!
to collect food for 22,000 Missis-
sippi Negroes.-
"This is part of a nation-wide1
drive to send food to Laflore,1
County in northern Mississippi,"
Martha Prescod, '65, chairman
of Friends of SNCC, explained. t
"Over 22,000 Negroes have been
denied food from a federal relieff

Fund Drive
The Indian Students Association
has started a fund-raising drive to
aid India in its border war withl
the Communist Chinese.l
The fund has been set up inI
conjunction with the Indian Em-
bassy of the United States. Orig-
inally, the money collected was
to be used solely for the war ef-1
fort but there has been an over-
whelming response that some ofl
the funds be sent to aid soldiers'a
families.
Money is being collected mainly
from Indian students; however,l
many Americans have also con- a

program by local officials because
some Negroes tried to register to
vote in the last election."
The first day's activity brought
in several hundred pounds of can-
ned food and over $350, Miss
Prescod reported last night. Over
150 University students partici-
pated in the day-long canvass of
grocery stores and residential sec-
tions of Ann Arbor.
The relief program, although
federallysponsored, is administer-
ed by local state officials, and the
Mississippi officials have refused
to allocate relief food to the La-
flore County Negroes since before
Thanksgiving, Miss Prescod said.
SNCC has been active in voter
registration in northern Missis-
sippi, but is facing economic and
physical threats directed to those
Negroes who would register, Rob-
ert Moses, director of SNCC's
Mississippi voter registration cam-
paign, said recently.
"This move to cut off all relief
to Negroes is just one part of the
whole network of pressure used to
keep Negroes from registering and
voting," Miss Prescod said.
Food collected in Ann Arbor
during next week will be sent to
Laflore County during the first
days of Christmas vacation and
money collected will be used to
buy food in Mississippi.
