... OSA changes

Set aChanes
S InJudiiry
J'oint Judiciary Council's con-
stitution underwent several
changes last year.-
A study made by council mem-
bershcalefd forseveral revisions
on the old constitution designed
to make the judicial process more
heedful of due process laws and
to clarify the procedure by which
} cases are referred to the proper
University agencies.
Substantive Change
Several substantive changes oc-
curred in procedure:
1) All information given to
council for consideration must now
be given with a bona fide signa-
S2) Any student brought before
the council must be- informed of
the composition and authority of
the council and the channels of
appeal open to him;
3) Council must provide the ac-
cuse4 with a written summation
of information which the council
has received from the Office of
Student Affairs.
Referral Group
A referral committee to act as
a screening body for all cases
which come up before the council
has been established. All cases will
pas through this committee be-
fore they are sent on to council,
mental hygiene department, or
other counselling agencies.
Previously, there had been an
informal system for deciding the
disposition of cases. The dirctor
for student activities and organ-
izations had met with the mem-
bers of council and discussedeach
case individually in order to de-
S cide where it should be referred.
The committee is composed of
the chairman of the council, a
student member of the University
Committee on Standards anti Con-
duct, and the referring officer of
the OSA.
Appeal Channel
Other changes dealt with the
channels of appeal open- to the
student dissatisfied with the coun-
cil's ruling.
' The University Committee on
Standards and Conduct was creat-
ed to serve as a final appeal
board for all penalties invoked by
judicial bodies within its juris-
diction. It will also adjudicate
violations whiche are waived to it
by the council.
This committee supercedes the
old Committee on Student Conduct
whose function was never clearly
"x delineated and consequently it
acted in many cases where no
appeal had been made to it and
where it had no specific authority.
' One Sex Panel
Other changes include a pro-
vision stating that the council
, will constitute itself as an all
m iale of all female body only at
the students request. The feeling
in some cases has been that the
student may receive a more im-
portial hearing if members of both
sexes discuss the case.

John Hale, currently assistant
to the director of housing, re-
signed to become director of
housing at the University of
Hale and assistant t the vice-
president for student affairs
Elizabeth Davenport have been
directing the residence halls on
an interim basis.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A: Lewis told the Re-
gents that he had been searching
for more than a year "for the
right man to head the residence
halls. He has the balance between
a scholarly attitude and exper-
ience in personnel work."
Lecturer in English +
Haun is a lecturer in English,
specializing in Restoration drama.
Haun will deal only with resi-
dence halls, although thenoriginald
OSA organization scheme called+
for one official to supervise all
"The job now is too big," Lewis
explained. Hopefully, he added,
Haun will add affiliated and inde-
pendent housing to his jurisdic-
tion. But this eventually is many
years away, Lewis predicted.
Create Academic Spirit
Under the re-organization plan,
the director of University resi-;
dences would attempt to create a
more academic atmosphere in the
residence halls and would carry
out established plans such as o-
educational housing.
The director's office would cen-
tralize authority once diffused in
the dean of men's and women's
No Preconceptions
"I am coming to this job with
no preconceived goals," Haun said.
"I want to make a study of the
residential situation at the Uni-
versity-this will take about a
year-and then think about goals."
The residence halls, he said, are
"a big exciting operation." Haun
declared that he "was elated at
the prospects of participating in
"The residence halls are a go-
ing concern. I am going to help
them to continue to go."
However, Haun sees himself as
more than an administrator. "I
love my teaching. I regard myself
as essentially a teacher."
Keep Teaching
He said that he had an under-
standing with the University that
he can teach as he is able to.
"The job is so big that I will not
be able to teach at least until
the first year here has elapsed,"
he explained.
Declaring that residence halls
were "part of the educational ap-
paratus, a service of the Univer-
sity for students," Haun expressed
hope +that "students will feel at
liberty to offer their advice.'
"I believe students living in
residence halls have a legitimate
interest in the administration of
the halls.",
Haun, a native of Little Rock,
received his bachelor's degree from
Hendrix College and his master's
at Vanderbilt University. H e
earned his doctorate in English
at the University of Pennsylvania
where he remained for 11 years.
His last post there was assistant
dean -of men (director of men's
residences). -

Haber Warns
Of Growing
Collegre Load
Taking office July 1, Dean Wil-
liam Haber of the literary college
sees the maintainance of educa-
tional quality against increasing
enrollment pressures as the main
challenge the college faces in the
next few years.
"This is not an easy task in a
world which is increasingly re-
quired to deal with ever larger
numbers of people, machines and
ideas," he notes.
Dean Haber explains that the
college, like the rest of American
higher education, is under pres-
sure from three sources-the in-
creasing number of high school
graduates, the relatively greater
capacity of American families to
finance the education of their
children and the growing demand
of employers for college graduates.
Growth Problem
He sees the proposed small resi-
dentialcolleges within the literary
college as means of dealing "with
the problem of growth and would
make it possible for a larger num-
ber of students to take advantage
of high quality education without
engulfing the present structure of
the college."
The small residential college
will combine classroom and living
arrangements to give an inte-
grated curricular, extra-curricular
life. Classrooms will be located
within the residential units and
younger faculty members are ex-
pected to reside within the college.
Dean Haber stresses the neces-
sity of maintaining the human
side of the liberal arts. "Education
must be preserved and strengthen-
ed. More attention should be focus-
ed on training good and creative
teachers who inspire the student
to explore the mysteries of both
our society and human relations,"
he declares
"In a time unequaled in the
history of the world for its chang-
ing patterns in all fields from
political science to economics,
only the broadly educated person
is in a position to adjust himself
to these changes."
Technological Revolution
He points to the technological
revolution and the current civil
rights on the domestic scene and
the rise of the underdeveloped na-
tions on the- international scene
as examples of such change.
"The only stability is the stabil-
ity of change. This can be applied
to our country and to our individ-
ual worlds as well," he declares.
Dean Haber has warned recently
that a new underprivileged class is
forming in the United States-the
uneducated-and has urged that
something must be done by high
school dropouts.
In the face of continued great
adjustments societies and its in-
dividuals will be forced to make,
the University must help prepare
its students to adapt to such con-
tinual change, Dean Haber says.
See Reasons
Students, he warns, "must be
helped to understand the reason
and the nature of change and
how to adapt themselvesto it."
Dean Haber was selected last
May to fill the nearly year and a
half-vacant post. He had previous-
ly served as chairman of the
economics department.
An expert on labor economics,
Dean Haber has participated in
studies of Michigan's economy and
on national welfare studies.
Dean Haber replaces Roger W.
Heyns who moved to the newly-
created post of vice-president for
academic affairs in February, 1962.

T wo Groups Study Colleges

Two high-level studies of Mich-
igan higher education will be
completed this fall.
A 13-man committee of Gov.
George Romney's "blue ribbon"
Citizen's Committee on Higher Ed-
ucation will submit in October an
interim report of its survey of the
state's colleges and universities to
Romney and the Legislature for

Kadish, Peek,
on Committee
Professors Sanford H. Kadish of
the Law School and George- Peek
of the political science depart-
ment have been named to the
Committee on* Public Discussion,
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger W. Heyns, its chair-
man, announced in late July.
The. seven-man committee,
created last September Ain a re-
vision of the University's outside
speaker policy, also includes Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis, as its secretary,
and three students to be named
this fall by Student Government
The group will have a two-fold
role. It will attempt to determine
what the major issues of the day
are and promote their discussion
on campus, inviting outside speak-
ers itself, if necessary.
Its second task is to explain
and educate the public about the
University's role as a forum. The
committee is expected to prepare
a statement describing the Uni-
versity's speaker policy and prac-
T h e revision in University

controversy against its alleged
limitations of free speech. Prev-

Also, the Michigan Council of
State College Presidents and the
Michigan Co-ordinating- Council
for Higher Education will release
its study of enrollment, faculty
and capital outlay needs for the
next five years in September.
'Crucial Years'
This study, begun in June will
center around "the crucial years"
of 1964-65, executive director of
both organizations Ira Polley ex-
The results may be used in pub-
lic presentations to inform the
state's citizenry of the needs of
higher education, Polley says.
Although the two co-ordinating
groups fully endorsed the work of
the "blue ribbon" committee,.
"they did not believe that public
policy decisions could be delayed
for the great period of time that
the committee would need to
handle the problem," Polley ex-
No Blunting
Polley denies that this study is
designed to head off or blunt the
work of the "blue ribbon" group.
The "blue ribbon" committee's
interim study will be headed by
Alvin Bentley, a former Owosso
Congressman and chairman of the
constitutional convention's educa-
tion committee. He will be assisted
by 12nother members of the "blue
ribbon" group.

Final Report
The "blue ribbon" committee
time-table calls for its final report
on the needs, problems and co-
ordination of Michigan higher ed-
ucation to give to Romney in
September, 1964.,
The 61-member committee has
only met four times since its for-
mation last April and has been
hamstrung by a lack of funds. In
late July, the W. K. Kellogg
Foundation granted the group
$50,000 to pay its expenses. While
a state-supported group, the com-
mittee has received no money
from the Legislature.
Full-Time Aide
"Blue ribbon" committee chair-
man Dan Karn says that the
money will be used to pay a full-
time staff director and enlist con-
sultant help.

sities have pledged full co-opera-

2) To provide for an orderly

3) To minimize conflicts with

Walkways and integrated build-

Building Goals,
Of Next Years
Declaring that the University
will grow "in all its functions,
parts and areas," Vice-President
for Business and Finance Wilbur
K. Pierpont reviewed plans for $17
million in Central Campus build-
ings within the next three to four
The largest is a $10 million den-
tal school building, to be located
adjacently north and west of the
current facility. It will house ex-
panded teaching, research and of-
fice facilities of the school.
An 800-car parking structure
will be built near the new dental
school building, Pierpont added.
The $1.2 million structure Will
serve dental school ifaculty, pa-
tients and students as well as those
of other nearby buildings.
A $3.3 million library annex will
be built on the site of the West
Physics Bldg. connecting the Gen-
eral and Undergraduate Libraries,
Pierpont announced. Preliminary
planning for this library annex is
already underway, he added.
The fourth new Central Campus
building is the Institute for Social
Research Bldg. to be located on
Thompson St. Preliminary plans
are complete for the $2.5 million
structure and bids will be sought
next spring.
