AudUt Committee
To Hold 'U' Visit
May Discuss Out-of-State Students,
Unified Procedures of Accounting
The Legislative Audit Commission, chaired by House Majority
Leader Allison Green (R-Kingston) will hold what University Presi-
dent Harlan H. Hatcher termed an "informal visit" with University
officials Sept. 20 and 21.
It has been reported that the commission may discuss out-of-
state enrollment. In addition, commission member Rep. William
Romano (D-Warren) said there ,

Cite Greater Nunber
Of Graduate Sudents,
Lower Dropout Rate
If the present rate of registra-
tion keeps up through Friday and
Saturday morning total University
enrollment should increase over
last year's fall enrollment figure of
Edward G. Groesbeck, director of
the Office of Registration and Rec-
ords, said yesterday that while the
number of entering freshmen was
expected to be about the same as
last year the number of dropouts
was expected to be less, resulting
in more students coming back to
Same Proportion
There will be a normal increase
in graduate school enrollment
which goes up every year. "It is
the only school which seems to in-
crease each semester; we expect it
to continue this time," he predict-
Freshmen will be entering the
different schools in about the
same proportion as last year. The
number of transfer students is
also expected to stay about the
Registration of freshmen, which
was completed by noon Thursday
last fall stretched well into yester-
day afternoon.
Applications Uncertain
The admissions office was un-
able to release figures on the num-
ber of people who had applied to
the University because, as one of-
ficial put it, "they are still com-
ing in and applying." However,
signs are that the total number of
applicants is higher.
He also said that it was too early
to tell just how the new $50 en-
rollment deposit would work out.
"Although it was publicized well
last spring many students just did
not hear about it and thus for this
semester only we are letting them
pay it up through registration. In
the future, however, it should give
us a complete and accurate pic-
ture of enrollment."

Hatcher Describes
Stuents' New Life
"You will find here - in this single environment - someone on
the frontier of every subject that concerns civilized man in modern
life," University President Harlan Hatcher told the entering class of
1966 last night.
Addressing an audience of freshmen which nearly filled 4,500-seat
Hill Auditorium, President Hatcher characterized the University as
:"one of the richest environments

... greets freshmen
LSA, Seeks'
New Dean
For eight months the literary
college had had no working dean.
Last February, due to an in-
creasing emphasis on "the admin-
istration of academic affairs," the
Regents promoted Roger W. Heyns,
who had been dean, to the newly-
created position of vice-president
for academic affairs.
Shortly after this, the literary
college faculty elected its nominees
for a committee which would be
given the responsibility for select-
ing a new dean. From the list of
nominees-well over a dozen men
from as many departments in the
college-University President Har-
lan Hatcher chose six who today
constitute the "deanship" com-
Since March, the committee has
attempted to find "the best quali-
fied man for this position-un-
questionably one of the most im-
portant jobs at the University,"
Prof. David Dennison, chairman of
the physics department and head
of the deanship committee, re-
"The committee is very anxious
to make a good recommendation
and doesn't wish to be overly hasty
in its decisions," he added.

in the country for the development
of yourself."
He then sketched a brief pic-
ture of the world that will await
the class of 1966 upon graduation
--and their place in it. He pre-
dicted a fast-growing and even
faster-moving society in which
ambitious, educated citizens would
play the leading role.
Cites Space
President Hatcher cited the ex-
ploration of space as a significant
example. "Most of you here were
in high school when the first sat-
ellite was put in orbit," he noted,
adding that since then, a new and
rapidly-expanding industry cen-
tering on space travel has arisen.
Someday, he predicted, space
will be the biggest industry in the
United States, and the need for
educated manpower will be as
staggering as the financial burden.
"In engineering, for example, we
will need one million outstanding
people for this program."
The call for educated people in
all walks of life will experience
similar growth, President Hatcher
"Free Advice"
President Hatcher continued by
giving some "free advice" on how
best to take advantage of the ed-
ucational opportunities at the Uni-
versity. He recommended that stu-
dents learn to budget their time,
that they take advantage of coun-
seling and other services avail-
able at the University if needed,
and that they try to "contribute to
the spirit of Michigan."
Preceding President 'Hatcher's
remarks, Student Government
Council President Steven Stock-
meyer, '63, and Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis
addressed the freshmen.
Stockmeyer emphasized the
need for self-reliance on the part,
of University students. "What
benefits you derive here are de-
termined by you, as an individual,"
Stockmeyer noted.
Lewis discussed the student's re-
lationship to the new Office of
Student Affairs.
"Few colleges consider their stu-
dents to be as mature as we do
on this campus," he said. As a re-
sult, greater responsibility falls to
the student for the conduct of his
own affairs.

FALL FESTIVAL-Eva LeGallienne and Richard Baldrldge will
be featured by the Association of Producing Artists in their Fall

sented Oct. 10.

Old .Rules
On Coeds
Women's housing units will be
operating under old rules until
implementation of the new ones
can be decided upon, Women's
Judiciary Chairman BarbaraPort-!
noy, '63, said yesterday.
Senior women will have to com-
ply with the old midnight closing
rule until it can be decided how
they will be admitted aftera
dormitory or sorority house is
Miss Portnoy said that hopefully
next week all judic chairmen from
dormitories will meet to discuss
their similar problems. At the
same time, sorority judic chair-
men will also meet.
Admissions Problem
The problems involved in im-
plementing the program entail
how the women will be admitted
to the house and whether or not
additional personnel will have to
be hired to guard the doors, es-
pecially of larger dorms. There is
a possibility that keys may be
issued for those women in sorority
houses or smaller dorms.
Special Assistant to the Vice-
President of Student Affairs Eliza-
beth Davenport noted that since
women had expressed the desire
for such new rules it is par-
tially their responsibility to work
the details out.
Quick Implementation
The new policies will be im-
plemented as soon as. possible.
Once suggestions from each house
judic chairman are received, Miss
Portnoy's committee will begin
to work on the overall campus
policy. Target dates have not been
set but it is hoped that the new
rules could be instituted within
two or three weeks.
Women are now also being hous-
ed in temporary quarters in dorm-
itories on the Hill. Women are
living in lounges in Mary Markley,
Mosher and Stockwell Halls.
"This is not unusual," Mrs.
Davenport noted. She explained
that in most years there are some
women who are not placed until
space can be found from can-
cellations received at the begin-
ning of the semester.
Not Especially High
Mrs. Davenport commented that
this year's number is not espec-
ially high considering that Victor
Vaughan and Geddes House are
no longer available for occupancy.
Last year all of the dorms were
opened for residency and thus
there was a smaller number of
women in temporary quarters at
the outset of the semester.
Prior to last year, however,
similar situations existed when, in
separate years, Mosher, Jordan
and Couszens Halls were being
Expect Senate
Approval Soon
WASHINGTON () - Arthur J.
Goldberg made his final appear-
ance yesterday before the Senate
Judiciary Committee as it con-
cluded its examination of his
qualifications to be an Associate
Justice of the Supreme Court.

would be some consideration of
unified accounting procedures. Un-
der unified accounting procedures,
all the state-supported colleges
and universities would use the
same accounting technique in pre-
senting financial data to the Leg-
islature and public Romano said.
Mental Health
The commission has also asked
to meet with University Hospital
and Mental Health personnel,
President Hatcher said. In ad-
dition, they will meet with the
Regents for a day of their two
day visit.
The Legislative Audit Commis-
sion is a fact finding group for
the Legislature. Its function in-
cludes checking on the spending
of state funds and gathering var-
ious other statistics needed for
legislation and appr*- riations.
Last year, the commission re-
port included figures showing the
geographic origin of students at
various state-supported institu-
The committee's report last year
also investigated the question of
faculty salaries and the percentage
which they have risen at various
Michigan colleges and universities
over the past few years.
Salaries Rise
At the University, faculty sal-
aries have risen 62 per cent over
the last ten years when fringe
benefits are included, the report
stated. It also claimed that all
state universities' taken together
have a net total of 11,140 more
out-of-state students than there
are Michigan students going to
out-of-state universities.
The report also said a complete
audit had been done at Ferris
Institute. in Big Rapids and
sharply criticized that irstitution's
financial record keeping.

cials last night to ignore federal
court school integration orders in
the wake of United States Su-

To fReview
Bylaw 8.11"
This fall may see the climax of
the controversy over the Univer-
sity's policy regulating the use
of campus facilities by non-Uni-
versity speakers.
The Regents may reconsider
Bylaw 8.11, which sets the follow-
ing policy for guest lecturers and
"No addresses shall be allowed
which urge the destruction or
modification of our form of gov-
ernment. .. or which advocate or
justify conduct which violates the
fundamentals of our accepted code
of morals."
A committee composed of five
faculty members was established
shortly thereafter to insure that
the by-law would be enforced.
The vague wording and cautious
philosophy of the "speaker policy"
has caused a good deal of discus-
sion and debate among students
and faculty, but only recently,
after other colleges started modi-
fying and easing up on their poli-
cies toward off-campus speakers
did administrators at the Univer-
sity consider revamping the rule.
Hatcher Creates Group -
In April, 1961, the original fac-
ulty committee in effect abolished
itself. About a half year later one
of its former members, Prof. Sam-
uel Estep of the law school, was
asked by University President
Harlan Hatcher to chair a new
six-man group whose job it would
be to recommend possible changes
in the by-law.
Last January, the committee
submitted its report to President
Hatcher. However, he was unable
to consider its findings until
March. Officially, the Regents
were unable to examine the report
until President Hatcher had read
and considered
But, when the Regents finally
received the recommendations
"their meetings were jammed with
tuition and other matters, such as
the Office of Student Affairs
changes ,so that they were unable
to consider the proposed by-law
revisions," Prof. Estep said.
No Regents' Action
During the summer, the Regents
and certain administrators and
Prof. Estep met informally to dis-
cuss the suggested changes.

Affairs Roger Heyns recently not-

Walls Closing In?


The Daily

About two months ago, Prof.
Charles Sawyer, director of the
Art Museum, who last year
chaired the University Senate
Advisory Committee, said that
at this institution, the faculty
has had, and maintained, a
traditionally strong influence
over policies effecting students
and teachers alike.
Faculty Influence
Sometimes this influence
comes through a Senate recom-
mendation to the administra-
tion or to the Regents. At other
times, where formal action is
not possible or necessary, the
faculty members themselves can
inspect a situation and decide
how to improve circumstances
which warrent improvement.
This sort of inspection is gen-
erally carried out hv any one

the Committee on Improvement
of Instruction, recently made
public an intense study of the
relation between evaluation of
instruction and its relation to
promotion and merit increases.
"The committee was not
charged with finding a way to
improve instruction, but rather
with inspecting and reporting
on a situation many faculty
members had been wondering
about for a considerable
amount of time," Prof. Charles
F. Lehmann of the education
school, who had been a mem-
ber of the study group, said.
No Conclusions
Since it was not asked to
find any conclusions regarding
the improvement of teaching,
the report which the committee
issued did not draw any definite
conclusions, but rather raised

value of certain criteria in pro -
motions; it pointed out that in
certain cases a factor which in
one school might be the single
most important requirement :or
promotion was in a different
educational unit barely con-
sidered. The report raised the
question of how "excellent" a
staff could be if it was unable
to grasp how administrators
defined "excellence."
It also pointed out that there
was no uniformity among pro-
motions in various schools and
"The committee report was
not done with the idea in mind
of imposing a uniformity of
inspection, but was rather a
report which the committee's
members hoped would prove
provacative enough to bring at-
tention to some things which
