Emphasizing the great need for

Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger W. Heyns noted re-

PROF. ROBERT B. ZAJONC
... sensory perception

Sensory Role
By STEVEN LESAK
The role of perception in the
learning processes should be given
greater consideration than it pre-
viously has been, Prof. Robert B.
Zajonc of the psychology depart-
ment -and the Research Center for
Group Dynamics said yesterday.
Speaking on the "Role of Per-
ception in Behavior Theory," Prof.
Zajonc said he disagrees with
many social psychologists who
feel that perception is a necessary
factor in the laws of learning.
Rather, these workers feel that the
learning processes can be used to
understand and explain percep-
tion.
By citing results from the areas
of sensory perception, drive stim-
ulus and discrimination stimulus,
Prof. Jajonc gave graphic support
to his point of view on the Im-
portance of perceptual considera-
tions.f
"Although traditional theories
regard sitmulus as a constant fac-
tor, experiments have shown that
perceptual considerations of stim-
ulus--particularly stimulus inten-
sity-must assume greater im-
portance in the formation of be-
havior theories," Prof. Zajonc said.
i He jointed out that his results
are based on a limited range of
stimulus intensities, citing the
need for more research in areas
of high intensity stimulus and for
the neurological explanation of
the observed results.

cently that "the obligation to
work together is deeply felt."
Speaking at the conclusion of
this year's Principal-Freshman-
Counseling Conference Heyns and
Assistant to the Vice-President for
Business and Finance John G. Mc-
Kevitt addressed a luncheon meet-
ing of secondary school officials
gathered from throughout the
state to interviewformer students
now attending the University.
The University is constantly
working to maintain a solid bal-
ance of competent faculty and
teaching methods and qualified
students, Heyns said.
De-Westernizing
He noted that "changes in cur-
riculum seem to be following a de-
Westernizing pattern - the in-
crease of interest in other parts
of the world reflects recognition
of the fact that young people are
now educated for world citizen-
ship."
A new pattern in the relation-
ship of professional schools to un-
dergraduate instruction also seems
to be emerging, Heyns said.
"Whereas the old concept was one
of education by layers, vertical in-
terrelations between the graduate
and undergraduate colleges are
now considering the student's total
education."
As for the role of a university
professor, Heyns hopes that duties
as a disciplinarian and a source
of facts will diminish so that
"teachers can be restored to the
human tasks of direct creative in-
teraction with students, increas-
ing motivation and setting stan-
dards of evaluation."
Outline Plans
In a program of slide projec-
tions, McKevitt briefly outlined
some of the University's expansion
plans with illustrations of new fa-
cilities and sketches from the Cen-
tral Campus Plan.
"A major factor of future plan-
ning is to keep the student in
sight and to enable him to gain
by the scale, character and op-
portunities of his surroundings,"
he said.
Also taken into consideration by
planning officials are attempts to
preserve the atmosphere of the
Diag," a point of identification
for both the new student and re-
turning alumni," and "the unique
sense of community living exper-
ienced through the close ties with
the city of Ann Arbor," McKevitt
noted.

RELIGIOUS VOCATION:
Jones Stresses Understanding of Roles

By DAVID J. ROSEN
"The real understanding of re-
ligious vocation is a by-product
of an understanding of the sense
of vocation for all of life," Rev.
Gordon Jones, Rector of St. An-
drew's Episcopal Church, said re-
cently at the Conference on Vo-
cation in Religion.
Acro,,ss
Caims
Speaking on the "Conservative
Political Philosophy of Edmund
Burke," Prof. J. Stanlis of the
University of Detroit will deliver
the keynote address for the first
annual All-College Conservative
Conference at 11 a.m. today in the
Michigan Union.
'Thieves Carnival' . .
The University Players will pre-
sent Jean Anouilh's comedy
"Thieves' Carnival" at 8 p.m. to-
day in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Pirandello . .
The Professional Theatre Pro-
gram's Association. of Producing
Artists will present Pirandello's
"Right You Are (If You Think
You Are)" at 8:30 p.m. today in
Trueblood Aud.

"We must consider what there
is in the religious dimension that
is continuous with the rest of life,
rather than what is discontinuous,"
he added.
Speaking on "A Vocational Un-
derstanding of Life," the Rev. Mr.
Jones outlined three essential fac-
tors for this understanding.
'Givenness'
He suggested that "a vocational
understanding of life becomes a
reality when the givenness which
exists on the outside invites and
anticipates an answer from us."
By "givenness," the Rev. Mr. Jones
explained that he meant simply
all that which has been given to
man by his Creator.
The Rev. Mr. Jones explained
that "one of the greatest sins
perpetrated begins with Descartes'
idea that life begins with the

awareness of self, his 'Cogito Ergo
Sum.' We should change this to
'Respondero Ergo Sum': 'I answer,
therefore I am'."
Gratutitous Sense
The Rev. Mr. Jones added that
"a vocational understanding of
life is based on experiences with
reality which excite in us a sense
of gratitude."
The third essential for vocation-
al understanding is that "our abil-
ity to accept ourselves and the
ability to be free is impossible
apart from obedience which sets
us free," the Rev. Mr. Jones said.
He added that the essential in-
tegrity of a religious vocation
comes from this third principle;
one who is subservient to his
Creator is not a slave to himself
nor to other men.

states, the Legislature would award
$147 million to higher education
next year-a $37 million increase.
If, the statistics report specu-
lates, this state followed the pro-
jected 49-state per-student aver-
age for next year, the Legislature
would vote it $131 million-a $21
million increase.
. The $49 million necessary for
capital outlay would be divided in-
to a $43 million allocation to stim-
ulate new construction, while $6
million would go towards remod-
eling and replacement of existing
facilities, the report shows.
Academic Structures
These capital outlay monies
would be used for classroom and
laboratory buildings and related
academic structures, the report
notes. However, the Legislature
would need to keep supplying the
$49 million for at least the next
eight years, with the 1970's un-
explored, the report contends.
Part of the capital outlay funds,
between $6-$12 million, would sup-
ply additions necessary for the
community college system. No
operating appropriation increase
was recommended for the state
community colleges, however.
They are two-year institutions
providing strong vocational train-
ing and giving preparatory "trans-
fer" education aimed at allowing
students to take their junior, sen-
ior and graduate years in other in-
stitutions.
The report gives the recommen-
dations for substantial and unpar-
alleled state increases in the oper-
ating appropriation and capital
outlay funds, spurred by its sta-
tistical realization that 1964 will
be the first year of the post-war
"bumper crop" of babies.
Reports Uses
Of Television
fn U' Teaching
By MILLICENT NOBLE
The University Center for Re-
search on Learning and Teaching
has made available to faculty
members information on the latest
uses of educational television.
Keeping the University's in-
structors informed of latest prog-
ress in areas which are relevant
to their teaching methods is one
of the tasks which has been taken
on by the center, headed by Prof.
Standford C. Ericksen of the psy-
chology department.
Television has been used by
several University departments
since 1950.
Television Difference
The center differentiates be-
tween educational television, which
is designed for the general public,
and instructional television, which
is set up for the benefit of the
student.
Instructional television is use-
ful for several reasons.
An unlimited number of stu-
dents can listen to a particular in-
structor at one time. It permits
close-up views of demonstrations
to large lecture classes. Instruc-
tional <television can also observe
without interrupting and can act
as a recorder.
Present Use
At present, there are six areas
of'the University which make use
of instructional television as a
teaching aid. The medical school
has closed circuit color television
and a video-tape recorder.
A remote-control television cam-
era televises action from the
Washtenaw County courtroom t
law school students. In other
areas, television is used to ob-
serve English Language Institute
classes and to monitor the North
Campus cyclotron.
The zoology department, the
education school, the niechanical
engineering department, the Eng-

lish department and the speech
clinic also take advantage of cer-
tain video facilities.

"Otherwise we won't accoin
plish what we are after. I'm afraid
we're opening the groups to con-
stant attacks and charges-many
of which will te anfounded."
"As I see it," Regent Donald
M. D. Turber of Detroit interject-
ed, "unless each step is spelied out,
someone might be given unfair
treatment. This is not an area for
broad guidelines and a few gen-
eral statements. While eight
pages of rules may seem tedious,
they provide the necessary pro-
tection of due process."
Regent Allan R. Sorenson of

Midland then indicated that he
would support Goebel, but for dif-
ferent reasons. "Fraternities and j
sororities are not student organ-
izations," he said.
Regent Carl Brablec of Rose-
ville moved to approve Lewis' ac-
tion, in effect approving the reg-
ulations.
In the 5-3 vote that followed,
he was supported by Power,
Thurber and Regents Irene E.
Murphy of Birmingham and Wil-
liam K. McInally of Jackson. Vot-
ing against the motion were Goe-
bel, Sorenson and Regent Fred-
erick C. Matthaei of Detroit.

America emphasized that a rabbi
cannot be a purely religious work-
er, as can a Protestant minister or
a Catholic priest, because of his
unbreakable tie with the Jewish
nation. The rabbi's role is pri-
marily that of teacher in a re-
ligious civilization, he said.
Tradition
TURNING TO his own work in
a seminary, Rabbi Gillman re-
marked that more emphasis is put
on student attitude toward re-
ligion than on factual detail. Sem-
inaries attempt to produce rabbis
who can and want to give tradi-
tional meaning to modern society.
The importance of making re-
ligious doctrine relevant to the
common man was also emphasized
by Msg. Vincent-Howard, director
of vocations for the Archdiocese of
Detroit. He noted that he finds
greatest satisfaction in working
directly with people to help them
solve their religious doubts and
problems.
Dean Roger Hazelton of Ober-
lin College pointed out the neces-
sity for a religious worker to look
on himself as a servant even if he
is not dealing directly with the
common man.
Transitional Stage
Dean Hazelton also introduced
the concept of the organized
church as merely part of a tran-
sitional stage in man's quest to
understand God.
"The church exists to make it-
self unnecessary," he said.
The Rev. Gene Hannahs of the
Detroit Industrial Mission dis-
cussed his own special interest in
the religious problems created by
our modern industrial society. He
regards the alienation from re-
ligion among the technological
and industrial leaders of our na-
tion as an area of severe need for
religious study and action.
Mrs. Elizabeth Sumner of the
Office of Religious Affairs men-
tioned the opportunities for com-
bining a full time vocation in a
field such as religious education
with the important duties of a
wife and mother.
