Farris Su ort Proposal
For Electronics Center
"We are presently engaged in preparing a proposal for a large
electronics research center to be located in the Michigan area," Prof.
Hansford W. Farris, of the engineering college, and associate direc-
tor of the Institute of Science and Technology, announced yesterday.
The center, which already has secured congressional approval, is
presently seeking a site.
"In the past, we felt that the state was not given adequate con-

Lewis Backs
Merger Idea
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said at a
League Council meeting yesterday
that he is in favor of a Union-
League merger and that he hopes
to see a student board set up in
the event that such a merger is
In clarifying his views of the re-
lationship between the proposed
Union-League merger and OSA,
Vice-President Lewis expressed
hope for a student activities board
consisting of students working
only with an advisor from OSA.
The OSA role on such a board
would be to help as needed.
Merely Add Wing
He added that he does "not see
a new student center in the physi-
cal sense" but that the necessity
for such a building might be met
instead with a new wing on the
Student Activities Building.
When asked why he did not in-
clude faculty and alumni on such
a board, Lewis replied that a stu-
dent activities board would be
guaranteed a budget and facilities
so there would be no need for
such members.
Expressing concern over the
calendaring of -student activities,
Lewis spoke of the need for "an of-
fice where there is always a per-
son who knows what is going on
when and where." This office
would be a responsible administra-
tive unit that would take care of
coordinating events.
They Are Supervisors
In answer to a question about
his views on more liberal rules for
women students, Lewis said, "The
University must accept the respon-
sibility for the supervision of stu-

he continued.
NASA Funds
The center, which would be
built with funds provided by the
National Aeronautics and Space
Administration, would entail the
expenditure of some $50 million.
The University has informally
made proposals for the site twice
in the past.
"The proposal is just in its for-
mative stages, but I believe the
University is in a good competitive
position," he added.
"In December we will present
our proposal to the five-man com-
mittee which will select the site,"
he said. "After this we would hope
for a site-visit to enable us to
present our proposals in person,"
Farris explained.

The proposed residential col-
lege is a desirable move, both
as a means of expanding the
University and as an education-
al experiment, Associate Dean
Burton D. Thuma of the liter-
ary college says.
But "if the idea is approved,
it should be given approval
mainly on educational grounds.
To my way of thinking it will
contribute little to the solution
of the problems of expansion
until it can be located outside
the densely populated area of
Central Campus,' he comments.
Dean Thuma's observations
appear in a memorandum to
the literary college faculty,
which will consider the resi-
dence college proposal at a spe-
cial meeting Monday. Dean
Thuma says he wrote the memo
because "it occurred to me that
faculty discussion of the pro-
posal might be facilitated and
given some direction" if the
"main issues" were outlined.
One Man's View
However, he emphasizes that
the answers he suggests are
"strictly my own opinion. Many
people disagree with it."
The report deals with the new
college proposal from two per-
spectives: the college as an ed-
ucational experiment, and as a
solution to the growth problem.
"If the faculty agrees that
the college should be establish-

ed on educational grounds,"
then three conditions should be
met, Dean Thuma states.
-"The new college must be a
part of the literary college,"
with its faculty and administra-
tion responsible to the literary
college dean and its entire fac-
ulty qualified to teach in the
regular college.
-"The assignment of facul-
ty members to the staff of the
new college must be done with
great care." Dean .Thuma ar-
gues that faculty members as-
signed there should "almost be
a volunteer staff, because they
must be people to whom the
college is positively exciting.
Above all, these persons must
be ones dedicated to the teach-
ing of undergraduate students.'
Not Permanent
However, they wouldn't have
to "abandon their undergradu-
ate students or be given perma-
nent assignments to the new
college.' Dean Thuma suggests
a maximum three-year assign-
ment to the college.
"My point is that they must
not ibe forced into the job . . .
nor should the new college be
looked upon as an academic Si-
beria In which the department's
chairmen are to be sentenced,"
he says.

this sort would permit educa-

He also commented on the
problem of service courses -

ferees on education legislation Commission a University petition regarding the $17 million central

told their House counterparts yes-
terday there will be no final action
on a college aid bill until agree-
ment has been reached on a vo-
cational education measure.
The conferees held their third
meeting on the vocational legis-
lation but broke up without agree-
The House delegation presented
a compromise offer whittling
down all provisions of the Senate
Some of the conferees said it
was unacceptable.
And at that point Sen. Wayne
Morse (D-Ore), head of the Sen-
ate group and chairman of the
conference, made it Plear the col-
lege bill will not be sent to the
White House until a satisfactory
compromise has been worKed out
in the pending measure.
Rep. Adam C. Powell (D-NY),
chairman of .the House Education
and Labor Committee, said he does
not regard yesterday's develop-
ments as a real threat to passage
of the college bill. He said he feels
the conference was following nor-
mal bargaining procedures.
Counter Proposal
In its counter-proposal the
House offered:
1) To meet the Senate half-way
on its increase over the House
authorization of $250 million in
funds for vocational education
2) To accept a one-year exten-
sion of the student loan section of
the National Defense Education
Act, with the additional funds
provided in the Senate bill, but
defer education provisions until
next year.
3) To extend for two years in-
stead of the Senate-voted three,
he program of aid for schools
burdened by children from federal'
nstallations, and delete assistance

he Senate favored.

that "the area can be developed

of Washington from Fletcher to
Forest is included as part of the
redevelopment area. It would per-

ing and building service access to
assure efficiency, flexibility and
attractive development."
In other action at last night's
meeting City Council referred an-
other University matter to the
Planning Commission - that of
annexing Dow Field and a portion
of the Arboretum.
Council wanted the Planning
Commission to look into the utility
costs and possible development of
the land parcel, which includes
approximately 70 acres.
Council also heard a reply to
questions submitted to City Ad-
ministrator Guy C. Larcom, Jr.

from four years to five or even
six and postponing specialization
until graduate school, was pro-
'posed here yesterday by President
Francis H. Horn of the University
of Rhode Island.
He made his proposals in a
speech at the annual meeting of
the Association of State Universi-
ties and Land-Grant Colleges.
Horn argued that the education
of broadly informed citizens can
seldom be accomplished in the
traditional four years. "The in-
flexible academic lockstep must
be broken. Some students may
make it in four years; others will
require six, depending on the stu-
dent's ability, application and the
extent or quality of his secondary
education," he said.

The proposal, to be submitted by

asks that consultation take the

able to provide the music
school, and perhaps the archi-
tecture and design college, when
it moves to North Campus, with
service courses.
"If the new college were lo-
cated on the central campus, it
need not, I think, provide any
service function at all."
Issues of Growth
Tackling the expansion ques-
tion, Dean Thuma reluctantly
acknowledges that the literary
college must admit more stu-
dents, and discusses various
methods of expansion.
-"We can simply continue
to grow as we are now doing, by
increasing our faculty, building
new buildings in the central
campus area as we are now
planning, and inheriting old
But doing this alone will only
"aggravate problems that face
