Hannah Views State, College Rivalries

Special To The Daily
tion may be the bulwark of the
free enterprise system, but it is
the curse of the 10 state-sup-
ported colleges.
At least that's the way Mich-
igan State University President
John Hannah feels about the
competitive methods necessary
to procure funds from the Leg-
islature-individually and in a
university-eat-university fash-
He is referring to the way
each university and college is
forced to lobby in Lansing for
more funds-to the detriment
of the other institutions.
Coordination Needed
Hannah favors coordination
and cooperation so that "all"
the schools can have more mon-
He explains that the way
each university and college in-
dulges "in pointing arrows" at
one another gives the Legisla-
ture a perfect excuse to justify
its actions.
This is why since 1958 Michi-
gan . higher-education appro-
priations have not been com-
petitive with those in other in-
dustrial states, Hannah con-

"We're past the point where
selfish interests are important
to the statewide educational
picture. What is important is
that there be educational funds
and opportunities sufficient to
give each available student a
top-level education. He must be
prepared eventually to compete
in the- labor market with stu-
dents from other states."
Another fault with the insti-
tutional competition for funds,
Hannah asserts, is that it con-
veys a false picture that educa-
tion is the "responsibility" of
these schools.
People's Burden
Actually, "the responsibility
for education rests with the
people-and it's high time the
universities began jointly edu-
cating them to this fact."
Coordination may be the so-
lution, and Hannah hopes that
he has a partial answer. After
all, he helped write it.
This "answer" is found in
Michigan's new constitution:
the reorganized State Board of
Education. Under the new con-
stitution, it will have the au-
thority to coordinate the fi-
nances of each university and
college in order to formulate a
recommendation to the gover-
nor and Legislature.
In helping to write the edu-

cation section of the constitu-
tion, "we felt that with each
institution guaranteed constitu-
tional sovereignty to run itself,
the State Board will see that
the schools make a delineation
of functions to decide best
statewide needs."
Each school may be called
upon to concentrate more on
certain facets of education, he
The board, through its finan-
cial coordination, will be able
to chart where more medical
and graduate education is nec-
essary or where schools should
be supplying greater technical
training, he notes.
Operations Only
The board will be concerned
only with the state's operating
appropriation. There should,
however, be a separate coordi-
nating body for the capital out-
lay appropriation, Hannah ob-
This body would be set up
along the lines of a state build-
ing authority. It would assess
the total needs of the state for
construction of educational
buildings, and then try to get
it from the Legislature.
This body then would reallo-
cate the money to the universi-
ties for individual projects
which they had requested.

Hannah feels this system-a
long-time favorite of his -
would have an advantage over
the direct legislative request
for building funds by the uni-
"Priorities in buildings are
not understood by senators,"
Hannah reports. "One senator
thinks a library is more impor-
tant, while another senator
would rather see more dormi-
tories." Thus, universities are
often denied buildings which
they feel are crucial to their
But no coordinating board
will entirely resolve the major
problem: to maintain top-level
undergraduate education, Han-
nah says. He would like, for
example, "to have the best
teachers educating first-term
Michigan State University
teaches approximately 400,000
freshman - sophomore c r e d i t
hours, 30 per cent of all the
first two-year credit hours
taught by the 10 state-support-
ed schools.
"To educate these earlier
students properly," Hannah
elaborates, "requires partly an
increase in funds and partly a
change in faculty attitude."

To Ask Law Course Changes

Three ad hoc curriculum study
committees-of the Law School will
recommend changes in required
courses and creation of a legal
writing program to the faculty late
this month.
Prof. Luke K. Cooperrider,
chairman of the school's standing
curriculum committee, stressed
that the recommendations are not
binding, and will be subject to fur-
ther committee revision after dis-
cussion by the faculty at large.

AID Alters
Goals, Aims
SIn Research
The federal Agency for Inter-
national Development has an-
nounced a major reorganization
of its program towards the goal of
developing a new research pro-
This project, the result of
months of reorganization and re-
thinking of the purposes of re-
search within AID, was to have
been made public by the-end of
However, no public announce-
ment has been forthcoming from
the AID group, a State Depart-
ment foreign aid agency.
Not Complete
Robert ,C.Fitzpatrick, Univer-
sity project representative for
AID, recently confirmed reports
of AID reorganization, but added
that the process has not yet been
"The agency already has an in-
ternal research program," he
said. "What it is now seeking is

reporting will be: legal writing,
required curriculum in the first
year, and content of courses in
civil procedure.
Legal Writing
The main suggestion concern-
ing legal writing is to set up a
compulsory first-year course. "It
will force first-year students to
resort to the lawyer's tools in the
library, and aid them to synthesize
legal material necessary for pre-
senting a statement of position,"
Prof. Cooperrider explained.
Currently the second year
"Problems in Research" course
fulfills this role. However, the
greater "receptivity" of the first-
year student, and the "need" for
introducing practical legal train-
ing early in the program convinc-
ed the committee that a fresh-
man course was needed, Prof.
Cooperrider commented.
He pointed out that an infor-
mal program currently operating
tends to teach this skill to begin-
ning students: the Case Club com-
petition, which is voluntarily en-
tered by first or second-year stu-
dents. Two teams of students re-
ceive a problem suggesting a law
suit, and prepare briefs on the
law as well as an oral argument.
Need Extra Training
"In the past we hoped that
first-year students would pick up
the necessary practical skills as
best they could through this vol-
untary activity. But in addition to
the Case Club program, some ac-
tual curricular training is needed
in composing and writing a legal
argument," Prof. Cooperrider said.
The main proposal concerning
required first-year curriculum calls
for reducing the credit hours of
two eight-hour sequences taken by
all first-year students. The com-
mittee will recommend that the
contract and property courses be
reduced to six hours credit.
Explaining the committee's ra-
tionale, Prof. Cooperrider com-
mented, "It's not fair to ask a pro-
fessor to devote this much time to
a single course. Besides, it ab-
sorbs an unusually large share of
the student's tme, and so much is
at stake on just one exam."
Course Consolidation
The third proposal, involving the
civil procedures program, asks
consolidation of the first and sec-
ond-year courses plus the addition
of more material into one course.
This is a vast subject, Prof.
Cooperrider said, and a single
course "will enable a teacher to
consider the entire structure of
civil litigation. It will give him a
better chance to relate the various
parts of the subject to one anoth-
Prof. Cooperrider claimed that'
it is especially important that the
required course be strengthened
because every law student takes

approximately half of his pro-
gram from the basic courses.
Thus the three ad hoc study
committees were appointed last
April to give special attention to
the content of those courses all
law students must take.

Calls for Aid

CHICAGO-The Association ofI
State Universities and Land-Grant
Colleges called last week for an
increase in federal aid for long-
range research programs and ex-
pressed opposition to proposed
federal undergraduate scholar~ship
program and a tax deduction for
college students plan.
The association said in a reso-
lution that there is a need for
greater emphasis on institutional
rather than project grants. Grants
for specific projects, they said,
erode the responsibility of uni-
versity administrators to main-
tain a coordinated plan of re-
search development.
Among proposals related to fed-
eral aid were:II
-Passage by the senate of the
"bricks and mortar" bill now
-Extension to new schools and
expansion of the National De-
fense Education Act graduate fel-
lowship program and expansion of
its student loan program, includ-
ing the removal of the present
$250,000 ceiling on funds to o te

-An increase in government

ties at universities, and
Extension Programs
-Aid for general extension pro-
grams of state and land-grant
schools to help meet "the great
need of our urban population for
further education and for re-edu-
cation in the light of new knowl-
The association expressed strong
opposition to a federal scholarship
program for undergraduates on
the grounds that there is' little
evidence that such a program
would promote college attendance
of an "appreciable number" of
students who are not now enrolled,
and that universities have other
financial needs more pressing.
Oppose Tax Plan
They also opposed passage of
the tax-credit plans which would
provide a deduction from income
taxes for tuition payments. This,
would cause low-tuition schools to
raise fees, they said, in order for

Rockefeller, addressing news-

would assume that unless he

nounced policies, he will not get
the nomination."
He also asserted that he would
attempt to "establish again the
principles of the party of Lincoln
and Eisenhower."
Meanwhile, in Washington. Pet-
er O'Donnell, Jr., head of the na-
tional "traft Goldwater" move-

National polls have shown that

"approximately what the state's
college presidents have been hop-
ing for." Hannah is a former
chairman of the Council of State
College Presidents.
Romney budget aides, in pon-
dering the, $25 milion figure, ex-
pressed the hope "that Michigan

Call for 'Just
Of Dispute
Dirksen, Mansfield
Cite Law Requiring
Cutoff of Payments
WASHINGTON (P) - Congres-
sional leaders called yesterday for
an immediate suspension of Amer-
ican aid in retaliation for Argen-
tina's cancellation of agreements
with United States oil companies.
The demands for swift retalia-
tion came although State Depart-
ment sources said details of the
Argentine action still are lacking.
Unanswered as yet, these sources
said, is the key question of com-
pensation to the American com-
panies involved in the complicated
decrees issued Friday in Buenos
Senate Majority Leader Mike
Mansfield (D-Mont) and Minor-
ity Leader Everett M. Dirksen (R-
Ill) expressed the opinion in sep-
arate interviews that action should
be taken quickly under exist-
ing law to suspend assistance. In
Argentina's case this has been
running around $100 million a
year in loans and grants.
Against the Law
Existing law says such aid shall
be cut off to countries which con-
fiscate American property and
don't pay for it in six months.
Tightening this up, the Senate
wrote into its version of the pend-
ing foreign aid authorization bill
an amendment automatically sus-
pending all aid to nations that re-
pudiate or nullify contracts with
foreign principals and don't settle
justly within six months.
President John F. Kennedy ex-
pressed concern at Thursday's
news conference over the Argen-
tine dispute and plans of the Peru-
vian government to nationalize a
United States oil firm's holdings
in that country.
Pending Justice
Mansfield said aid should be
suspended "pending a just settle-
ment." If there is no reasonable
compensation made to the com-
panies, he said assistance should
be terminated.
"This practice of seizure of
American properties has got to be
stopped or adjusted on a reason-
able basis," he said. "This could
happen again in Brazil, Peru and
other countries. We have got to
face up to this issue and make the
best of it even though it involves
a serious blow at the Alliance for
Dirksen said Argentina's action
probably will result in "pinching
off our aid." He said the United
States recognizes the right of ex-
propriation but must insist on full
compensation for the properties
In Buenos Aires sources said
President Arturo Illia annulled the
oil contracts only after he heard
of the Senate moves.





Standstill, 21-21

Sports Editor
Michigan parlayed its own version of Ohio State's quarterback-
fullback rushing offense into a 21-21 tie with Iowa in Michigan
Stadium here yesterday.
But while Ohio State got itself eliminated from the Rose Bowl
football race with Michigan State and Illinois yesterday, the Wolver-

ference record, which puts them in a fourth-place tie with Purdue
and Wisconsin, both 3-3.
The Hawkeyes lost ground with the tie, however. They dropped
from a sixth-place tie into eighth, with a 2-3-1 conference record.
Both Michigan and Iowa are 3-3-2 for the season.
