Like other state agencies which

Niehuss stressed that 'the Uni-

bare minimum needed by the
University to carry on its present

BLOOMINGTON-The National Student Congress of the United
tes National Student Association will consider major reforms in

The association's National Executive Committee has suggested

limiting the power of the NEC.
The NEC wishes to consolidate
the 22 regions into five, each with

Romney's First .Plan
Under Gov. George Romney's
original 196465 estimate of $610
million foe the general fund
budget, an increase of $10 million
was allotted for higher education.
This budget was $60 million above
the operating budget for the cur-
rent year. Revised estimates by
the governor cut this figure in
half and added an additional $17
million for "funding" required by
the new state constitution.
Consequently, the $10 million
increase will most likely be cut

budget would seriously jeoparcze
this action. In fact, Regent Eu-
gene B. Power of Ann Arbor said
"without an increase in the Uni-
versity's budget we can't operate
year round."
Five Austere Years
Citing Romney's attempts to
make state agencies run more ef-
ficiently, Power noted that the
University "has been through five
years of austerity. I am certain
that the University has introduced
all possible economies."
Plans Cited
Declaring that the University
will grow "in all its functions,£
parts and areas," Vice-President
for Business and Finance Wilbur
K. Pierpont reviewed plans for $17
million in Central Campus build-
ings within the next three to four
The largest is a $10 million den-1
tal school building, to be located
adjacently north and west of the
current facility. It will house ex-
panded teaching, research and of-
fice facilities of the school.
An 800-car parking structure
will be built near the new dental
school building, Pierpont added.
The $1.2 million structure will
serve dental school faculty, pa-I
tients and students as well as thoset
of other nearby buildings.
A $3.3 million library annex will
be built on the site of the West
Physics Bldg. connecting the Gen-t
eral and Undergraduate Libraries,
Pierpont announced. Preliminary1
planning for this library annex is
already underway, he added.
The fourth new Central Campus
building is the Institute for Social
Research Bldg. to be located on
Thompson St. Preliminary plans
are complete for the $2.5 millionI
structure and bids will be soughtc

Haber Warns
Of Growing
Cll eoe Load'
Taking office July 1, Dean Wil-
liam Haber of the literary college
sees the maintainance of educa-
tional quality against increasing
enrollment pressures as the main
challenge the college faces in the
next few years.
"This is not an easy task in a
world whichis increasingly re-
quired to deal with ever larger
numbers of people, machines and
ideas," he notes.
Dean, Haber explains that the
college, like the rest of American
higher education, is under pres-
sure from three sources-the in-
creasing number of high school
graduates, the relatively greater
capacity of American families to
finance the education of their
children and the growing demand
of employers for college graduates.
Growth Problem
He sees the proposed small resi-
dential colleges within the literary
college as a means of dealing "with
the problem of growth and would
make it possible for a larger num-
ber of students to take advantage
of high quality education without
engulfing the present structure of
the college."
The small residential college
will combine classroom and living
arrangements to give an inte-
grated curricular, extra-curricular
life. Classrooms will be located
within the residential units and
younger faculty members are ex-
pected to reside within the college.
Dean Haber stresses the neces-
sity of maintaining the human
side of the liberal arts. "Educauon1
must be preserved and strengthen-
ed. More attention should be focus-.
ed on training good and creative
teachers, who inspire the student
to explore the mysteries of both
our society and human relations,"
he declares.
"In a. time unequaled in the
history of the world for its chang-
ing patterns in all fields from
political science to economics,
only the broadly educated person
is in a position to adjust himself
to these changes."
Technological Revolution
He points to the technological
revolution and the current civil
rights on the domestic scene and
the rise of the underdeveloped na-
tions on the international scene
as examples of such change.
Dean Haber was selected last
May to fill the nearly year and a
half-vacant post. He had previous-
ly served as chairman of the
economics department.
An expert on labor economics,
Dean Haber has participated in
studies of Michigan's economy and
on national welfare studies.
Dean Haber replaces Roger W.
Heyns who moved to the newly-
created post of vice-president for
academic affairs in February, 1962. I

Final Report
The "blue ribbon" committee
time-table calls for its final report
on the needs, problems and co-
ordination of Michigan higher ed-
ucation to give to Romney in
September, 1964.
The 61-member committee has
only met four times since its for-
mation last April and has been
hamstrung by a lack of funds. In
late July, the W. K. Kellogg
Foundation granted the group
$50,000 to pay its expenses. While
a state-supported group, the com-
mittee has received no money
from the Legislature.
Full-Time Aide
"Blue ribbon" committee chair-
man Dan Karn says that the
money will be used to pay a full-
time staff director and enlist con-
sultant help.
ThP state's colleges and univer-
sities have pledged full co-opera-
tion with the "blue ribbon" group
and have promised staff and study

Help Insult Ann Arbor Garbage Cans

As a campus institution for 73 years now, The Michigan Daily
has woven its way into nearly every Ann Arbor heart.
Last spring, for example, the editors received (but blushingly did
not print) this missive which typifies the love and adoration held
for The Daily:
I consider this without a doubt the worst waste of eight dollars
I have ever committed.
I assure you I will never again make such a stupid blunder.
Thank you so much for the left-wing editoials and Herblock
'cartoons'--your prejudice (not bias) is very difficult to ascertain.
If fairness is ever instituted as a policy at your little propa-
ganda office, I will be most happy to subscribe once more.
Until then, I will not allow my garbage to be insulted.
Thank you,
G. Carpenter."
Naturally, we were overwhelmed by Mr. Carpenter's compli-
ments, and in his honor have posted the letter on the Editor's bulletin
board as a daily reminder.
However, since most of us graduate there is a 25 per cent yearly
turnover in personnel here at the propaganda office, and new blood
is needed to continue insulting the local trash receptacles.

Mark G. Noffsinger, formerly
,o-ordinator of counseling was
appointed Haun's assistant.
Hale Resigns
John Hale, currently assistant
to the director of housing, re-
signed to become director of
housing at . the University of
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis told the Re-
gents that he had been searching
for more than a year "for the
right man to head the residence
halls. He has the balance between
a scholarly attitude and exper-
ience in personnel work."
Haun is a lecturer in English,
specializing in Restoration drama.
.Haun will deal only with resi-
dence halls, although the original
OSA organization scheme called
for one official to supervise all
No Preconceptions
"I am coming to this job with
no preconceived goals," Haun said.
"I want to make a study of the
residential situation at the Uni-
versity-this will take about a
year-and then think ahout goals."

President's Welcome

I extend a cordial welcome to
the students who are beginning
new programs of study at the
University of Michigan.
May I remind our freshmen
that since they are spending
four or more years at the Uni-
versity they proceed immediate-
ly to lay their academic foun-
dation soundly; that they ex-
plore all aspects of the Univer-
sity, curricular and extracur-
ricular; and that they take the
long look at what they expect
from life before deciding how
the University can best help
them reach their goals.
Best wishes for success and
