Study New Form
Of Government
Describing the concept of stu-
dent-faculty government as "at-
tractive," a student workshop Sat-
urday recommended further in-
vestigation of its possible benefits.
Six possible advantages were
listed in a resolution passed by
the workshop on academic policy-
making of the Michigan Region
meeting of the United States Na-
tional Student Association. They
were: first, faculty-student con-
tact would be increased in an at-.
mosphere better attuned to dis-
cussion of mutual interests than
the classroom.
Public Debate
Second, the major issues before
the University would be publicly
debated by a government repre-
sentative of both faculty and stu-
dent constituencies.
Third, students would be more
actively involved in debating the
education issues facing the uni-
Fourth, students would take a
more active interest in these is-
Fifth, student-faculty govern-
ment would lessen the potential
danger of administrators making
decisions not based on education-
al criteria and
Sixth, students and faculties
would begin to see themselves as
"partners in the. educational en-
terprise" instead of as members of
opposing groups.
Joel Sharkey of Wayne State
University, co-chairman of the
workshop and chairman of
Wayne's Student-Faculty Council,
described student-faculty councils
as "one of the most refined and
advanced philosophic concepts

Technical Jobs
Give Workers
Professional people and techni-
cal workers are most likely to be
deeply satisfied in their work-but
they are also most prone to frus-
Dr. Gerald Gurin, program di-
rector of the Survey Research
Center, says that 80 per cent of
them say their job is ego-satisfy-
ing, as compared to 39 per cent
for clerical workers, 40 per cent
of semiskilled workers and 29 per
cent for unskilled workers.
In a report- published by the
Foundation for Research on Hu-
man Behavior, Gurin comments,
"it is interesting to see that the
relatively high level of ego-
satisfactions which professional
persons, technicians, managers
and proprietors report, does not
imply that they are without ego-:
He explains that, though such
individuals get more gratification
from their work, they also seek it
more intensely-and as a result
are more distressed by failure.
Turning to the effects of auto-
mation on the feelings of blue-
collar workers toward their voca-
tions, Gurin comments, "It would
appear that most of these less
skilled blue-collar workers either
come into the job situation with
minimal ego-fulfillment aspira-
tions, or begin with aspirations
but become adjusted to the lack
of ego-fulfillment in the job."

"It is time to take a more sci-
entific approach to law," Prof.
Hessel E. Yntema, professor emer-
itus of the Law School, said re-
The University's Law School
"was the first great law school out-
side of the east," he commented.
"There is an opportunity for the
University to lead in law and gov-
ernment by enriching the instruc-
tion of law to more adequately
meet new problems."
The teaching of law is becom-
ing inadequate because lawyers
are forced to specialize within
such narrow fields as income tax.
Law is not very transient so it is
hard to get new ideas across. Un-

der the present system of teaching,
it is "impossible to teadh all that
the law student should know," he
said. For example, there is a lack
of knowledge of law outside the
United States.
A native of Michigan, Prof.
Yntema received his masters and,
PhD. degrees at the University. In
1934, was appointed to the law
staff after teaching at both Co-
lumbia and Johns Hopkins Uni
