In return, President Hatcher
believes industry should "invest in
research-oriented staffs of their
own, bring its technology up to
date and be eager to learn and
explore new ways of doing things."
Cooperation with educational
institutions can enable industry to
easily do so, he claimed, because
universities provide new graduates
every year who are already re-
search-minded because of their
President Hatcher commented
that "their training is indirectly
a part of what you pay for when
you sponsor research on a univer-
He also described some of the
efforts of the University to com-
bat the problem on intellectual
obsolescence caused by the rapid
change occuring in all industrial
and professional fields.
"Subscribers to the industry
program of the engineering col-
lege receive abstracts of scientiilf
papers, invitations to campus con-
ferences and special lectures ar-
ranged at company locations and
conducted by faculty," President
In an agreement with one Mich-
igan company, the University pro-
vides six weeks of concentrated
instruction on campus and six
months of one-a-week seminars
at the company location to en-
gineers who have not been able to
keep up with progress in their
"To contribute toward an ef-
fective partnership with industry
at the University, the Institute of
Science and Technology sends bul-
letins to companies and helps to
find the right man or organization
for an inquiring industry," Presi-
dent Hatcher commented.
There have been many examples
of the inter-relationship of uni-
versity research and the develop-
ment of new industrial products.
"A new product or process may be
the result, or the necessary means'
toward the universities' goal of
gaining new knowledge," he ex-
Special To The Daily
CHICAGO - "Even though the
number of youths going to college
will increase sharply in the years
just ahead, the scientific person-
nel problem will become more ag-
gravated," Vice-President for Re-
search Ralph A. Sawyer said yes-
Speaking before the American
Optical Society meeting here, he
accepted the society's Ives Medal
for his work in spectroscopy.
"The problem of scientific man-
power will be aggravated for two
reasons," he indicated.
"One is the simple and direct
fact that the large increase in
college enrollment calls for cor-
responding increases in college
"The other reason is the rapid
growth of research and develop-
ment expenditures, both by the
government and by private indus-
try," he added.
He pointed out that the rate of
increase in research spending has
been about 15 per cent per year
since World War II, doubling
every five years under the stimu-
lation of needed new developments
in space and defense areas.
Quoting the President's Scien-
tific Advisory Committee to show
the need for increased scientific
and technical manpower he said:
"The output of doctorates in
these fields should be increased
by 150 per cent in the decade of
the sixties in comparison with a 50
per cent increase in the fifties."
He noted that the problem is
basically financial and that more
funds will be required to support
graduate students, to pay for addi-
tional educational costs and for
construction and renovation of
laboratory and teaching facilities
and research equipments

of the opportunities for engaging
in legal aid work.
"Exploitation of the resources
of state and local bar associations
as well as the use of strategically
located alumni may be helpful in
enlarging the (placement) pro-
gram," the committee report stat-
ed. Although no formal expansion
of the placement bureau hastaken
place, there was an increase in
placements made last year.
Concerning committee - recom-
mendations, Dean Proffitt com-
mented, "Some of their ideas may
be good, but if we don't have the
money we obviously can't put
them into effect."
Today's committee schedule in-
cludes meetings with law students,
further attendance of classes and
conferences with faculty. In ad-
dition, committee members will
have free hours to investigate
areas of particular concern to
them. They will have an opportun-
ity to contact persons with which
they may have wished to discuss
the Law School, but whom they
have not met in the formal pro-
gram, Dean Proffitt said.
By JOHN WEILER
Australia's position toward the
Southeast Asian area has changed
considerably since World War II,
Sir Alan Watt of the Australian
National University said yester-
Watt, who was formerly with the
Australian government but is now
a visiting fellow at the Depart-
ment of International Relations at
the University, said that the
change has been one from com-
parative isolation to "identifiable
presence of Australia in the South-
east Asian area."
He said that although Australia
has inherited European cultures
and British parliamentary tradi-
tions by nature of its location on
the "southeast rim of Asia," Aus-
tralia has a more important geo-
graphic stake -in the actions of

once summed it up as "what Great
Britain calls Far East, we call

Australians had no diplomatic of-
fices in foreign countries they es,-

The aftermath of Pearl Harbor,
the fear of invasion and the fall of
Singapore caused drastic changes
in Australian attitudes, Watt add-

The dilemma that has faced
Australia since the war has been
one of the difficulties in reconcil-
ing military security and peaceful
relations, Watt said.
One possibility for establishing
good relations has been the Aus-
tralian universities and other edu-
cational institutions who have al-

Watt said that serious consider-

headings: national revolution, per-

"newly emergent" forces outside
