Residence College Survey

Literary college department
chairmen are cautiously opti-
mistic about the residential col-
lege proposal, a Daily survey
Of 18 chairmen contacted
this week, 10 said they per-
sonally favor the idea, four ex-
pressed substantial reservations
and four declined to comment
altogether. No chairman an-
nounced himself as flatly op-
posed to the idea.
The potential for educational
experimentation was the argu-
ment most often mentioned in
favor of the new college. Prof.
Guy E. Swanson, chairman of
the sociology department, said
the integration of living and
academic units could resurrect
the academically-oriented bull
session, which is more common
in European schools and have
proved fruitful there.
Unusual Opportunity
Prof. Rudolph H. Gjelsness,
chairman of the library science
department, added that it
would be "an unusual oppor-
tunity for the library to give
a more personal touch to its
services and to be in closer con-
tact with instructional work."
The residence college pro-
posal, drafted by a faculty com-
mittee and released last April,
suggested several types of ex-
perimentation. Basic was the
concept of having "all the
teaching facilities and most of
the studying, facilities ..in
residence halls."
In addition, a more integrat-
ed curriculum and greater
student-faculty contact were
envisioned. At the same time,
the college should be near
enough to campus so that Uni-
versity facilities would be read-
ily available to its members,
the report state.
Enrollment Pressures
The department chairmen al-
so frequently applauded the
residential college concept as a
possible answer to enrollment

pressures. Prof. Alfred S. Suss-
man of the botany department
commented, "At least in its
early stages the residential col-
lege may not be a solution to
increasing size, but in the long
run it would serve as a model
which we could apply to ex-
panding the University in a
way which would preserve qual-
But none of the chairmen
denied that there will be prob-
lems connected with establish-
ing the new college.
First, several chairmen, while
favoring the college, don't see
it as an answer to the enroll-
ment problem. Prof. Swanson
noted that it could deal with
"some of the consequences of
growth, but in general growth
implies a need for more staff."
Present Growth
Professors George G. Cam-
eron of the Near Eastern stu-
dies department and Gerald F.
Else of the classical studies de-
partment both said the college
would take three to four years
to set up and consequently
would not solve the present
growth problem.
Prof. Arthur Bromage, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, added that the tri-
mester and expansion of the
regular literary college must be
used to accommodate more stu-
But the most frequently-
voiced objection was financial.
Although the original report
asserted that the new college
"'would not differ in either
student-faculty ratio or run-
ning-cost expenditure per stu-
dent for the college as a whole"
from the present literary col-
lege, 8 of the 14 chairman
commenting mentioned money
as an obstacle.
Same Problems

problems in the new college
would be the same as elsewhere
in the University, but because
of other expenses involved in
the residential college its stu-
dents would get "some pretty
expensive teaching."
Prof. James N. Spuhler,
chairman of the anthropology
department, said the increased
student-faculty contact neces-
sarily will boost expenses, add-
ing that he feels the college
would be worth the extra cost.
He also said the failure of
the Legislature to appropriate
enough funds could block the
opening of the new college.
Might Divert Funds
And Prof. John Mersereau,
Jr., chairman of the Slavic
languages department, said a
residential college might divert
funds from the rest of the
literary college's operations.
Staffing problems also were
mentioned frequently. Prof.
Anderson said he doubts anyone
in the chemistry department
actively engaged in research
would give it up to teach in
the residential college.
Whether or not teaching in
the new college would be pref-
erable to working in the regular
literary college is "a mater of
taste," Prof. Sussman noted. He
said there are some members
of the botany department 'who
would be willing to teach in the
residence college for a while.
Willing To Work ,
Most other chairmen indicat-
ed that at least a few of their
departments' members prob-
ably would be willing to work
there, though several said they
would need additional appoint-
ments to man the new college.
Prof. William B. Willoox of
the history department warned
against forming an image of
faculty in the residential col-
lege as the University's "sec-
ond-class citizens.'

War Halts'
ALGIERS (M-)-Shooting stopped
late yesterday in all sectors along
the contested Algerian-Moroccan
frontier, Algerian field headquar-
ters announced today.
The end of hostilities was an-
nounced 24 hours after the offi-
cial cease-fire went into effect at
midnight Friday. The report said
an artillery duel in the Figuig-
Beni Ounif sector ended by early
evening and no engagements had
been fought since.
The report came from Algerian
headquarters at Colomb-Bechar
after both sides in the undeclared
frontier war traded artillery and
machinegun fire in violation of
the Bamako cease-fire agreement.
Each side accused the other of
violating the agreement within
minutes after it came into effect.
Morocco had dispatched troops
to its eastern frontier and mili-
tary duels shattered a brief calm
yesterday in the sector 'bordered
by the Moroccan town of Figuig
on the north end and the Algerian
town of Beni Ounif on the south
Algerian authorities said Moroc-
can shells ripped into Beni Ounif
23 minutes after midnight yester-
day and kept coming for 20 min-
utes. The Algerians said they or-
dered their artillery to return fire
Figuig Firing
Morocco charged the Algerians
fired on Figuig yesterday after the
cease-fire deadline.
Algerian Foreign Minister Ab-
delaziz Bouteflika told newsmen
late yesterday that despite con-
tinued fighting he still had "every
hope for peace" in the border con-
flict with Morocco.
Boutilika told a news conference
he believed the Moroccan govern-
ment was trying "just as hard as
the Algerian government to put an
end to the incidents that delayed
the end of the fighting."
Algerian troops took positions
around Figuig last week to coun-
terbalance the Moroccan advan-
tage in the Sahara, he said.
The Algerians are known to
have Soviet-made tanks and other
Communist-bloc equipment, but
there has been no previous report
Soviet soldiers were at the scene
of the fighting.

Rules Survey
The Women's Conference Com-
mittee will begin a survey tomor-
row to determine opinions on
women's regulations.
Questionnaires will be circulat-
ed to girls living in residence halls
and sorority houses through house
presidents. All girls living in
apartments and co-operatives are
asked to pick up a form at the
League and fill it out there or re-
turn it later to the League.
All forms should be returned by
Friday, Nov. 8. The study is purely
a personal opinion poll and is by
no means a vote, Gretchen Groth,
'64, president of the Michigan
League, said.

United States officials disclosed
this yesterday after President*
John F. Kennedy cancelled plans
to attend a football game in Chi-

The major concern at the con-

in the United States-backed war
against the Commuist guerrillas.
Attend Conference
Among those in attendance were
Secretary of State Dean Rusk,
Secretary of Defense Robert S.
McNamara and Gen. Maxwell D.
Taylor, chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff.
Beside the question of recogni-
tion, informants said the top offi-
cials discussed the composition of
the new Saigon government and
the resumption of United States
economic aid programs, which
have been curtailed in the last
two months.
The military group headed by
Gen. Duong Van Minh which took
power is expected to continue to
hold sensitive cabinet posts such
as the ministry of defense, inter-

activities connected with the war
Give Assurance
The United States apparently
finds in the public announcements
of the military committee assur-
ance that South Viet Nam will
return to a constitutional, demo-
cratic form of government.
So far as is known here the
South Viet Nam government's
foreign reserves of $165. million
are still intact.
There had been speculation that
some funds may have been cred-
ited to the account of the Nhu
family in foreign banks.
Can't Say
United States officials said they
could not say if any small diver-
sions may have taken place, but
they were certain that there have
been no massive diversions of
funds abroad.
The suspension of some aid pro-
grams has not led to food short-
ages, but there have been specu-
lative price increases and hoard-
ing of flour, cement, chemicals
and steel product. The cost of liv-
ing has risen.

Critics have also charged that
Congress was "overzealous" in giv-

has been increased almost 15-
fold in a decade as a result of

Dr. Shannon admitted, however'
that his agency was "remiss" in

Although the mayors felt that
cities should still be allowed to
levy local income taxes, they
agreed that this tax should be col-
lected by the state.
"If an income tax is found to
be necessary, we feel that the only
reasonable and efficient method
lies in a tax administered, collect-
ed and distributed on a state lev-
el," their statement read.

The mayors defeated a proposal
to recommend only one state in-

"It is agreed that there is an
immediate need to simplify and
reform the present system of fi-

on the state and local levels. How-
ever, it is felt that cities and oth-

be guaranteed at least the same
