FPA Amends Rules
For Rush Procedure

The Fraternity Presidents' Assembly last night amended Inter-
fraternity Council bylaws affecting rush procedures and time sched-
One amendment abolishes the last three days of both fall and
spring rush, but leaves the opening day of rush scheduled as before.
Another amendment allows houses to invite rushees back to
smokers on the first Tuesday after rush, but leaves that Tuesday open
for open houses as well.
Limits Time
It also adds the first Wednesday after rush to the rush calendar,
and permits lunches and smokers on that day until 9 p.m. But it

Crosman Says School
To Study Deposit Need
Preliminary investigation into the need for enrollment deposits
for graduate students is underway, Assistant to the Dean of graduate
school Max W. Crosman said yesterday.
Presently there are about 19,000 graduate students who have
completed masters degrees but have not declared specific intentions
about further studies. Anywhere from 300 to 900 of these students
may show up at registration and the graduate school often has noI
advanced knowledge of this number, Crosman commented.
The need to have a control on the number of students may become
apparent as early as April or May, when the graduate school will

..discusses 'U' problems

Delays Stand
On Policies
Special To The Daily
LANSING-Now working from
a makeshift office in the state
capital, in preparation for his Jan.
1 inauguration, Gov.-elect George
Romney is finding that it is still
"too early" to take a stand on the
state's and the University's edu-
cation problems.
Concerning the University's ap-
propriation for the 1963-64 aca-
demic year, for instance, Romney
said in an interview yesterday
that he hasn't had time to study
the University's request, which is
currently being processed by the
state controller's office.
He did predict that "there will
be some differences" between his
policy on handling budget requests,
and that of Gov. John B. Swain-
Too Early
However, the governor-elect
said it is too early to specify
exactly how these differences will
affect his recommendations to the
state Legislature for the Univer-
sity's appropriations.
Turning to the controversy over
Communist speakers on public col-
lege campuses, Romney again de-
clined to comment on specific
cases that have arisen, although,
as a general principle, he feels that
speeches under these circum-
stances should have "an educa-
tional purpose."
Qualified Students
As to the out-of-state student
question, which usually attracts i
some interest each year among
legislators, he noted that Michi-
gan's higher educational system
"has acquired nationwide respect
and prestige through attracting
qualified students from all parts
of the country.
"I hope this will continue to be
true," he said.
He pointed out 'that on .the
question of University-state gov-
ernment relations, which underlies
all these problems, he concurs in
the principle of university auton-

limits the rushing activities al-
lowed on the first Friday after
rush begins to 6 p.m.
FPA passed a third amendment
advancing the permissable date of
first possible bids to the first Sun-
day after rush. The action came
after an original amendment ad-
vancing the date to the first Fri-
day after rush was defeated.
IFC Executive Vice-President
David Croysdale, '63, said that the
amendments proposed were the re-
sult of "considerable study" on the
part of the IFC Rush Committee
and the recommendations of the
IFC executive committee.
To Issue Clarification
IFC Administrative Vice-Presi-
dent Fred Riecker, '63, explained
that the IFC executive committee
will soon issue a clarification of
IFC bylaws concerning pledging
practices and hazing. "We want
to make sure that everyone under-
stands exactly what the rules say
so that there will be no future ac-
tion similar to the recent ATO
Riecker added that some prac-
tices were obviously and certainly
prohibited. "These include pad-
dling, unnecessary physical mal-
treatment of pledges, and any
form of public humiliation of any
pledge or group of pledges by
making them dress unusually or
subject them to any treatment
which would bring discredit to the
fraternity system."
Croysdale explained that the
judicial action taken by IFC exe-
cutive committee against ATO re-.
sulted from violations of IFC reg-
ulations regarding physical mal-
treatment of pledges. The fine
was $250, with prohibition of rush
and $250 more suspended.
State ACLU
To Consider
Shapiro Case
The Michigan branch of the
American Civil Liberties Union is
presently considering the case of
the dismissal of Prof. Samuel
Shapiro from Michigan State Uni-
versity-Oakland, Ernest Mazey
executive director of the state or-
ganization, said yesterday.
At present the Michigan ACLU
is "very much interested and con-
cerned," he noted. A committee is
reviewing the case and will shortly
make a decision.
Mazey expressed confidence that
the ACLU will decide favorably
toward Shapiro.
Nicholas Kazarinoff, secretary of
the Ann Arbor-Washtenaw County
ACLU, commented that "many of
this branch are concerned with the
case and regard it as a pretty
serious violation of academic free-
The University Ad Hoc Com-
mittee for the Reinstatement of
Shapiro last night passed a state-
ment urging the University Pro-
fessors Association to investigate
the dismissal.
At an ACLU board meeting
Monday night Mazey announced
that the Detroit branch would be
actively participating in the case
and would take whatever steps it
thought necessary, Kazarinoff said.

... new SGC plan

SGC Change
To Consider
Student Government Council
will consider two seperate motions
tonight which would take initial
steps in reorganizing SOC.
A motion by Fred Batlle, '63
A&D, and Kenneth Miller, '64,
asks the Regents to approve ex-
tensive changes in SGC structure,
increasing Council membership
from 18 to 22 by adding two
elected and two ex-officio mem-
bers. The motion would also re-
move voting power from ex-
The other motion, from the
Committee on the University, pro-
poses further studies into the pos-
sibility of establishing a joint stu-
dent-faculty government. Discus-
sion of this proposal has been held
over from last week's meeting.
Ex-Officios' Role
The first motion is essentially
concerned with ex-officio status on
Council. It is based on the prin-
ciple that ex-officios should not
have voting privileges because they
(1) are not democratically elect-
ed, (2) do not necessarily have a
wide knowledge of student affairs,
and (3) do not have adequate time
to devote to their own organiza-
tions, their studies, and Council.
As a result they spend little time
on Council.
The motion keeps ex-officios on
Council, instead of eliminating
them, as it recognizes that they
have value in a advisory capacity.
It adds two ex-officios, the highest
officers in Graduate Student
Council and Intercooperative
Regental Support
Under provisions of the Student
Government Council Plan, Coun-
cil must get Regental approval of
any reorganization. It may also
put the proposal before the stu-
dent body in a Spring referendum.
Also on tonight's agenda are
motions from Daily Editor Michael
Olinick, '63, protesting the pro-
posed amendment to the Ann Ar-
bor City Code on disorderly con-
duct; from Howard Abrams, '63,
condemning Michigan State Uni-
versity-Oakland's firing of Prof.
Samuel Shapiro; and from Michael
Kass, '65, supporting the work of
Ann Arbor Friends of the Stu-
dent Non-Violent Coordinating

4decide whether to ask for $50 en-
rollment deposits, he indicated.
All Applicants
If the graduate school were to
initiate an enrollment deposit, it
would be requested of all graduate
students now enrolled and of all
new applicants, Crosman added.
If the quota for the school were
filled by these students, it would
not be possible to accept any of
the undecided graduate students,
he continued.
Often these students return to
the University for short courses,
special degrees or doctorates.
The undecided students wishing
to re-enroll for further graduate
work are asked to submit a letter
requesting re-admission before go-
ing to registration. At the time
this letter is received, records are
"'pulled out of the deep freeze"
and requests for the deposit would
be made, Crosman maintained.
Guarantee Place
Dean Stephen H. Spurr,, assist-
ant to the Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs, pointed to the phil-
osophy behind enrollment de-
p:osits: 1) to guarantee students
a place at the University; 2) to
give the deans and departments
an idea of how many students
they will have, and 3) to try to
minimize the problem of more stu-
dents returning than expected.
The alternatives to enrollnent
deposits, according to Crosman,
are a pre-paid portion of tuition
such as the University of Illinois
or Purdue University have initiat-
ed or a complete pre-registration
system instead of the present pre-
classification plan.
Until now there has been no
need for a general deposit in the
graduate schools because few de-
partments w e r e overcrowded,
Crosman indicated.
No Problems
Special assistant to the vice-
president for student affairs Pet-
er Ostafin said that the dental,
medical and law schools all have
advanced deposits, however there
is no problem a1tout continuity of
enrollment in these areas.
In the graduate school with
larger numbers of students, there
is no guarantee how many will re-
turn, Ostafin maintained.
Graduate students living in Uni-
versity housing already have a $50
housing deposit which would prob-
ably be combined with the enroll-
ment deposit similar to the com-
bined housing-enrollment s u m
posted by undergraduates, Ostafin

Invoke Fifth
At Hearings
By The Associated Press
committee on Un-American Ac-
tivities yesterday opened hearings
investigating the Women Strike
for Peace movement, but it heard
the first three witnesses completely
or partially invoke the Fifth
Mrs. Lyla Hoffman, an organ-
izer of the strike movement in
Great Neck, N.Y., conceded that
she once was a Communist Parry
member but said she had not been
one for the past five years.
Mrs. Ruth Meyers of Roslyn,
N.Y., indignantly denied that she
was the Ruth Meyers who had
signed a Communist nominating1
petition in 1948 for New York City
Council, but she invoked the Fifth
Amendment when asked if she had
ever been a Communist.
Overriding ;the protest of Reu .
Clyde Doyle' (D-Cal), chairman
of the subcommittee, Mrs. Blanche
Posner of Scarsdale, N.Y. delivered
an impassioned lTcture covering'
Strontium 90 and nuclear testing.
She then pleaded the Fifth Amend-
ment in refusing to answer all'
questions, including whether she
was a Communist.
In the course of the hearing, a
one-time FBI agent strode down
the center aisle of the crowded
hearing room and demanded the
committee halt its probe. "I pe-
tition you to stop these proceed-
ings before you heap disgrace upon
the American people," shouted
Jack Levine. He was removed.
All witnesses avoided saying
whether they knew Mrs. Dagmar

educational purpose of the Uni-
versity "
Noting that both the Union and
the League enjoy status as regen-
tal groups operating exclusive of
the Office of Student Affairs, Prof.
Cutler asked the committee to con-
sider the relationship of the two
groups to the OSA.
Urges Redefinition
He urged a redefinition of the
relationship between the Union,
League and Student Government
Council, originally conceived as a
responsive, responsible representa-
tion of the student body.
"The real question involved in
the merger study is to what degree
the Union, League, SGC or OSA is
really held accountable in the light
of the educational goals set by
the faculty and to what degree is
it necessary that centralization
should occur so that responsibil-
ity can be definitely nailed down,"
he commented.
"If the League offers opportuni-
ties for development that the Un-
ion does not, or vice-versa, and if
under examination they prove de-
sirable to the educational process,
I would definitely move toward a
Evening Session
In the evening session, student
leaders gave their views on the'
merger and its pertinent details.
Though the general consensus
favored the merger, there were
those who feared that the combi-
nation of these fortresses, two of
the last against co-education,
would partially destroy the value
gleaned from working for them.
Others feared that with the in-
creased efficiency such a merger
would create many students would
be deprived of their posts at them.
Quelched Argument
Those in favor of the merger
quelched this latter argument, at-
testing that a student who works
40-60 hours per week on extra-
curricular activities as is required
of the president of the Union can-
not do justice to his studies.
SGC President Steven Stock-
meyer spoke for the plans pro-
ponents by emphatically emphas-
izing the "definite need for co-
ordination of student organiza-
tions on campus, and that "the
extensive overlapping functions of
the Union and League only point
.up a bigger problem."+

Committee Meets
To Discuss Mergyer
Members of the Union-League Study Committee met in two sep-I
arate sessions yesterday with representatives from the Student Rela-
tions Committee of the Faculty Senate and the student body to con-
sider the proposed Michigan Union-Women's League merger.
In the afternoon session, Prof. Richard Cutler of the psychology
department and chairman of the SRC advised the study committee to
examine the issue "in light of the '

Start Action
On 'Dry Line'
A group of local businessmen
will meet today with William Lo-
las of Jackson to formally start a
campaign to eliminate the Divi-
sion St. "dry line."
At present, Ann Arbor's char-
ter prohibits the sale of intoxicat-
ing beverages south and east of a
long line which stretches from.
Fuller St. in north campus through
Division St. to Packard St. at the'
city's southern limits. Only drug
stores are exempted.
To amend the charter, five per
cent of the city's eligible voters
must sign a petition asking for a
referendum, according to Lolas.
This means that the petition will
need 1500-1800 signatures, he es-
timated. Lolas also said that it
will have to be submitted at least
90 days before April 1. election
Ielped in 1960
Lolas also helped Ann Arbor
merchants pass a referendum in
November, 1960 to permit the sale
of liquor by the glass.
"Up to now," he said, "not too
much has been done because I was
busy scouting businessmen that
were interested. And I found that
quite a few were."
Lolas also said that action on
the "dry line" had been delayed
because of disagreement between
two groups. One group, he said,
"wanted only to bring the line
further east, so that it would not
cut the campus off." The other
group wanted a complete elimina-
tion of the "dry line."
No Support .
Mayor Cecil O. Creal said yes-
terday that a move to eliminate
the line "would probably not get
the support of the people." Local
merchants have attacked the
existence of the line, charging
that it is archaic and that it does
not add to business opportunities.
The "dry line" has been of some
concern in University circles; it
prevents the Michigan Union from
serving alcoholic beverages at
meals, and helps to dampen hopes
of a faculty meeting center on the
central campus area.

Study Report
Needs House
Council Adopts Idea
From Quadrant Unit
A study committee of South
Quadrangle Quadrants has rec-
ommended in a 20 page report that
South Quad be converted to a co-
educational housing unit on a ver-
tical plan.
The report was submitted for
comment to the South Quad Coun-
cil last night, and the council for-
mally approved the principles of
the report in a motion advising
the various houses in South Quad.
The vertical plan calls for a di-
vision by sex of the quad by east
and west wings, men living on one
side, women on the other. The re-
port states that the names of the
houses might be shuffled to repre-
sent other areas of the Quad. -
Best Suits
The report supports its decision
because the vertical plan "best
suits the physical structure of
South Quad." The report asserts
that the "men and women would
be integrated but would retain a
necessary portion of the cohesion,
unity, privacy, and security which
now exists."
Robert Ditz, '64E, spokesman for
the Quadrant study committee said
that on the basis of informal dis-
cussion with men of South Quad
and women in Mary Markley Hall,
the vertical plan seems to be in
accord with the majority of stu-

Any plan "must pay careful at-
tention to the essential requisites
of privacy," it says.
The report continues to say that
the plan of vertical integration
would cause the minimum adverse
reaction from the public and the
The report considers in some
detail various problems involved
in conversion of South Quad.
These include the questions of
elevator use; use of the ninth floor
study hall, Club 600, the ground
floor of the Quad after women's
hours; co-educational eating facil-
ities, use of the quad library and
lounges; and separation of men
and women in the quad as a whole.
Vertical Integration
The report concludes that ver-
tical integration best solves the
problems of conversion, although
not all questions were resolved
The largest single problem most
difficult to satisfactorily overcome
with the vertical plan was the
question of integrating by sex of
the eating facilities of the quad.
Another plan of conversion of
South Quad is the so-called hori-
zontal plan, which calls for entire
floors on both sides of the quad
to be reserved for either men or
More Adequate
The Quadrants' report concludes
that the vertical plan more ade-
quately and satisfactorily deals
with the problems than does the
horizontal plan.
Ditz said that the horizontal
plan does solve some problems
more adequately than the vertical

en's formals, but that "more im-

Lewis Predicts Appointment
Of Housing ]Director Soon
The Office of Student Affairs is still looking for a housing
director, and hopes to name a choice by the end of the semester,
Vice-President for Student Affairs James A. Lewis said yesterday.
"We are looking for someone with a good understanding of the
academic side of the University," Lewis said. He hopes that the
housing director will work for a closer student-faculty relation in

the residence halls and towards a
more academically oriented hous-
ing system in general.
Counselling Experience
"It is most hopeful that the
housing director will have had
counselling background and ex-
perience in student affairs," Lewis

Campus Hails Advent of New Gargoyle
It is a special day for the University: Gargoyle is back.
The campus humor magazine which made its last appearance in
the spring of 1960 has finally been revived. After two years of
abortive efforts, a crew headed by editor John Dobbertin, '64, has
produced a 32 page issue ready for consumption.
"We're looking for a new format in college humor magazines,"
Dobbertin says. "The trend is against us. The old magazines, such
as the Princeton Tiger, aren't selling. They're dying out."
The first three issues of the new Garg will be highly experi-
mental. "This is not by any means the final format. We have to see:

Consider Rules
"He and his staff will consider
the rules and regulations govern-
ing the residence halls, and sug-
gestions made by Inter-Quadrangle
Council," Lewis continued.
The housing office will also
direct all business operations con-
nected with the residence halls,
and "we are trying to find a per-
soi who has an understanding of
the business side of housing as
well" to take the position of hous-
ing director, Lewis said.
Another area to be under the
housing director will be the selec-;
tion of residence hall counselling

A board of trustees must in-
form itself on the educational
aims of the university or college
in order to act wisely on major
questions before the institution,
and "most boards are not do-
ing so," a recently published
report from the Carnegie Foun-
dation for the Advancement of
Teaching asserted.
The relationship between the
trustees and the university
president, faculty, managerial
problems, fiscal responsibility
and the organization of the
board are major areas discussed
in the report.
"If there is anything that
should characterize the trustee's
vision of what the institution as
its best could be it is breadth."
the study, entitled "The Role
of the College and University
Trustee," maintained.
Public Interest
"Trustees are committed to
the public interest insofar as it
can be served by an institution
of higher learning, and par-
ticularly by their own institu-

university," was suggested in
the report.
This committee would not
interfere with the faculty's re-
sponsibility for academic policy,
but would raise questions and
urge re-evaluation and discus-
Visiting Committees
"By all odds the most effec-
tive mechanism for communi-
cation between faculty and
trustees is the system of visit-
ing committees developed at
Harvard University and other
One of the basic responsibili-
ties of the trustees is the selec-
tion of the president of the in-
stitution. The report endorsed
the policy of trustee-faculty
communication in this decision.
"The relationship between
the trustees and the president
is best described in terms of the
familiar distinction between
policy and operations. Thy
board limits itself to broad
considerations of policy. The
president is the operating head
of the institution."
Active Role

of trustees is to represent the
college or university to the
world. Since trustees are us-
ually drawn from the leader-
ship in large communities, they
can play an important role in
protecting the institution f rom
"improper pressures or 'attack
and particularly from outside
interference with legitimate
teaching functions."
Trustees can also be instru-
mental in fund raising and fis-
cal responsibility.
Complex 'Housekeeping'
Most boards are well suited
to handle the "complexities of
large-scale housekeeping" such
as investments, maintenance
and expansion of the physical
plant. However, the report em-
phasized the need for know-
ledge of the educational aims in
relation with physical expan-
The study of the organiza-
tion of boards indicated that
they vary in size from three to
115, with a median of 15. Pub-
lic institutions average at ten
and private institutions have
a median of 24.
