DUAL RESPONSIBILITY - John Feldkamp, '61, president of
Student Government Council, noted the concerns of student
government with its own internal functioning and with its func-
tioning as a body representing University-wide student opinion
in his Fifth Anniversary Address to SGC yesterday.

Feldkamp Sees Freedom at Stake;
Aims To Equate Ideals, Practicality
By JEAN SPENCER
"The low vote was a signal-it would be disastrous to ignore it,"
SOC president John Feldkamp, '61, said yesterday in a Fifth Anni-
versary Address to the Council.
"Democracy, freedom, student rights are at stake," he said. "Our
ideals are great. We must strive to meet these ideals and yet we must
come down to earth and be practical also."
Feldkamp spoke of the need for SGC to be a unified voice, urging
members to uphold the decisions of the body publicly and privately.
Weaknesses
One of the Council's weaknesses, he said, is a lack of responsibility
inspeciii areas. When 8Ca was formed, it was a Council policy that

By JIM BENAUGH
Sports Editor
Michigan's athletic bosses have
launched initial steps in an effort
to halt outside schools from raid-
ing the Big Ten of high school
prospects who accept its athletic
tenders.
The desire to work out such a
plan on a national basis was an-
nounced to The University Re-
gents yesterday in the annual re-
port of the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics.
The Board, in its report, said it
desired that recognition of Big
Ten contracts with the athletes be
gained from major conferences
throughout the nation.
Alter Conferences
"The conferences would (then)
respect the demonstrated inten-
tions of students who have ac-
cepted awards at particular in-
stitutions," was the possibility ex-
pressed hopefully in the report.
It was signed by Athletic Director
H. O. Crisler, the Board's chair-
man, and Big Ten Faculty Repre-
secretary.
sentative Marcus Plant. Board
The report said that raiding of
Big Ten Schools has reached as
high as 100 athletes in one year
in recent years.
.Since "po argument would seem
necessary to demonstrate the im-
propriety of the practice (of raid-
ing) on moral or e d u c a t i o n
grounds," the financial aid pro-
gram as a competitive device was
brought into question.
However, the Board said it ap-
peared that the solution does not
lie in eliminating the need factor
from the Big Ten, but rather in
arranging an agreement to block
raiding after a prospective athlete
signs.
Explore Possibilities
The possibility of working out
the agreement with other confer-
ences, the report continued, should
be "fully explored before any
radical change is made in the
(athletic scholarships) plan."
The Board's suggestion was ac-
cepted by the Regents as part of
their complete approval of the
33-page report.
The Board also showed that
during last year, the present aid
program provided assistance for
sports. Fifty-four of those assist-

Little Women Charge
'U' Prohibits Transfer
Women at Little house have said recently that the Dean of Wom-
en's office has been discriminating against them in favor of incoming
freshmen.
Elements of Little, an upperclass house in the Mary Markley
complex, have charged they are not being allowed to move to Betsy
Barbour. They said that last year both Little and Barbour voted in
favor of having Barbour changed to an upperclass house, but nothing
has been done to implement this.
A woman in Little says that although incoming freshmen have
not been notified in which dormitories they will live, the Little pro-
posed change is still not allowed. "It seems that the only needed

MONTGOMERY, ALA. -)-
group of students at the Univer
sity of Michigan is protesting th
use of law enforcement officers t
break up Negro anti-segregatio
demonstrations in Montgomery.
John Feldkamp, President o
the Student Government Counci
made public a letter today to Gov
John Patterson endorsing "stu
dents and others demonstratin
for equal rights in your state."
There was no immediate com
ment from the Governor.
Feldkamp, who said he spok
for the Council, said "picketin
and sit-in strikes represent legiti
mate forms of protest against suc:
discrimination, places of busines
or elsewhere."
Interference Objectionable
He said it is objectionable whe
police "interfere with this right o
protest" or refuse to protect dem
onstrators from "assault by thos
holding different views."
And, the letter added, "whe
$ any action or lack thereof by cit3
or state officials deprives student
of their right to an education, V
is doubly objectionable."
City, state and county off icer,
have broken up recent Negro den-
onstrations and, on one occasior
drove off an angry white crow
which threatened the Negroes.
Nine of the students at Alabama
State College who took part in
demand for service at the white
lunchroom in the Montgomers
courthouse were expelled frorr
school on orders from the stat
Board of Edducation.
Relate Process
(SGC voted Mar. 9 to send let-
ters to the governors of eight
Southern states, including Ala-
bama, as well as to the central of-
fices of W. T. Grant, S. S. Kresge,
S. H. Kress and F. W. Woolwortl
chain stores supporting the dem-
onstrators.

Later this policy was dropped
"to allow members more time to
devote to membership itself." He
asserted that dropping the former
policy hasn't improved the ad-
ministrative wing, hasn't stimu-
lated members' sense of responsi-
bility, and has led to a breakdown
of communication between the
A Council and the administrative
wing committees.
- A return to the practice of mak-
e ing members committee heads
o would give them the advantage of
n leadership training, he said.
Follow Through
Another difficulty has been
found in carrying through projects
a, once they have been introduced
v. to the Council, Feldkamp said. The
- areas of intercollegiate athletics,
g physical education requirements,
affidavit provisions of the NDEA
loan plan and academic freedom
- were brought to the Council and
not followed through, he said.
ce "We must balance our objec-
g tives to meet the role of the chang-
- ing student," he asserted, citing
h the election rules as "idealized and
s ineffective." ,
He cited the "unique role" of
SGC as a University organization
'in that the Committee on Referral
n exists as a "stipulation" on the
- veto power of the Vice-President
- for Student Affairs.
5e SOC must put aside considera-
tions of its past glory, and of its
nn position among student govern-
y ments on other campuses, he con-
t cluded, in order to look at itself
it Icritically.

To Protest
Walsh Trial,
Hertier Says
WASHINGTON (W) - Secretary
of State Christian A. Herter last,
night issued orders for "the
strongest possible protest" to Red
China against the prison sentence
imposed on Bishop James E.
Walsh.
The protest will be filed by Am-
bassador Jacob D. Beam at War-
saw, Poland, who has periodic
meetings with the Red Chinese
ambassador there.
A Chinese Communist court in
Shanghai has sentenced the 68-
year-old Bishop to 20 years im-
prisonment on a charge of espion-
age. Sen. J. Glenn Beall (R-Md.)
told the Senate they were
'"trumped-up charges."
Herter, in a statement deplor-
ing the action, branded as totally
false Peiping's charges that Walsh
had served as an American spy.
"I find it difficult," Herter said,
"to emphasize sufficiently the
revulsion that I, personally, and
the United States government feel
today. I am instructing our am-
bassador at Warsaw to lodge the
strongest possible protest with the
representative of the Chinese
Communist regime at their next
meeting Tuesday.
The United States does not
recognize the Communist regime
in China and has no diplomatic
representation there.
However for several years Beam
and the Chinese Communist am-
bassador in Warsaw, Wang Ping-
Nan, have maintained formal con-
tact. One of Beam's purposes has
been to try to persuade the Chi-
nese Reds to let the few Americans
remaining in prison in Mainland
China return home.

'action would be to write the in-
volved incoming girls and notify
them that the status of Barbour
has been changed," she said.
Move Administratively Impossible
One woman claims that the
only reason the Dean's office has
been able to give is that it is ad-
ministratively impossible for them
to move to Barbour as a unit.
Names Choices
She says that the only choices
they have been given are either
to remain in Markley or to move
to Victor Vaughan. Both choices
have drawbacks, she said.
At Little there are continual
conflicts between the upperclass
women and the 800 freshmen that
form the rest of the dorm. Our
different hours antagonize the
freshmen, she claimed.
Some women say what they
really want is an independent
unit where they will not be both-
ered by the antics of the fresh-
men. Vaughan is unacceptable,
one woman said. In listing reasons.
she said it is too far from campus
and is in a bad neighborhood.
Juniors Desire Priority
The juniors in Little say since
they have been on campus longer
they should receive priority over
incoming freshmen as on other
campuses.
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon
said that the policy at Michigan
since 1915 has been to give top
priority to incoming freshmen.
This is done, she said, because the
University believes i n c o m i n g
freshmen have the largest adjust-
ment to make, and so should have
the most ideal conditions.
The adjustment of the fresh-
man must remain a major con-
cern, she added.
Because of their commitment
to the incoming freshman neither
Barbour or Helen Newberry can be
opened to upper-class housing in
the fall. The University promised
them that if they got their appli-
cations in early they could get
their first or second choices and
this will be honored.

institutions we are not concen-
trating the aid program on foot-
ball or basketball to the depriva-
tion of the lesser p u bli ci z e d
sports."
The Board said the fact that
football received more tenders
than other sports was not incon-I
sistent with its philosophy of a
rounded program.
"We have never used all of the
100 possible tenders in any of the
years of the existence of the plan,"
the report explained. "No sport
has been limited in this respect for
the benefit of any other. All sports
have had excess tenders available
and unused."
Salaries, Wages Higher
All in all, the aid fund ac-
counted for $160,141.09 of last
year'sddisbursements. The only
other higher figure of the million
dollar - plus disbursement ledger
was "salaries and wages" which
accounted for almost half.
The athletic department lost
money during the year, as the net
operating income fell below "hopes
and expectations," because of low-
ered football income in the fall of
1958.
However, football again was the
only sport to show a profit. Re-
ceipts totaled over $700,000. More
than $600,000 profit was netted
after expenses for the sport were
subtracted.
Hockey was the only sport to
come close to the black side of the
ledger. Over $13,000 was profited
compared to nearly $17,000 in ex-
penditures.
Picket Lines
'To Continue
A group of 25 to 30 students
will picket the Cousins Shop and
the local Woolworth's Store this
afternoon.
They will meet at 341 E. Liberty
at noon and begin picketing about
1 p.m.
The Cousins Shop was men-
tioned in a report to the City
Council from the Human Rela-
tions Committee last week as hav-
ing refused to serve a Negro
woman shopper.
The F. W. Woolworth Co. said
recently it would maintain lunch
counter segregation in the South
or close their southern outlets.
A spokesman for the picketers
said they would continue to dem-
onstrate throughout the week un-
til or unless the stores show
signs of changing their policies.
The picketing is an indication
of student unity on the issue, as
well as cooperation with the com-
munity.
The Cousins and Woolworth
stores were picketed for several
hours last Saturday afternoon,
after the council had received the
Human Relations Commission's
letter.
At that time the signs the dem-
onstrators carried explained that
the boycott is intended to be men-
tal, rather than economic.

Letter Claims Lack
Of Research Mone
University President Cites Deman4
For More Funds in Graduate Schoc
By THOMAS KABAKER
University President Harlan Hatcher painted a dar
picture of the state of the University in a letter to Gov. (
Mennen Williams.
In his letter President Hatcher said the Senate apprc
priations bill "does not meet even minimum essential neec
of the University." He presented statistics showing that th
University gives 70 per cent of all graduate-professional de
grees in the state.
"The importance of this advanced training and r
search to the progress and welfare of the state and natio
has never been clearer than in the, present age of rapidl
expanding knowledge in scientific and other fields. "By a
national standards, this kind of education is not only mor
expnsie, ut isois o

expensive, but also is more
susceptible to recruitment'
pressures resulting from a
shortage of qualified person-
nel," the President wrote.
The University has been forced
in the past two years to "curtail
operations in all areas except
faculty salaries, and these have
not kept up with trends else-
where," President Hatcher's letter
added.
The letter showed that compar-
ing 1957-58 with the present aca-
demic year, there were 1,000 more
students and 58 fewer faculty
members. The President's letter
also maintains that library pur-
chases have also fallen seriously
behind.
Funds Disappear
"Funds for general faculty re-
search have disappeared from the
state - supported budget. It has
been necessary to limit enroll-
ments. Some key faculty already
have been lost, and many others
have attractive opportuniites else-
where."
In his letter, President Hatcher
noted that, "while we are grateful
for the support which the Univer-
sity has received over the years,
the present moment in history
does not permit a dissipation of
one of the state's greatest assets."
President Hatcher pointed out
that a "head count" of students
was not correct for comparing or
justifying appropriations. Due to
the University's extensive activi-
ties in graduate and 1professional
work, its per capita cost of train-
ing students is higher than at
some other institutions.
Objects to Appropriation
Wayne State University Presi-
dent Clarence B. Hilberry has
charged that WSU was not getting
its fair share of the state's appro-
priation for higher education. He
based his protest on the per capita
rate allowed Wayne State.
He said the total amount allotted
all three schools amounted to
$1,060 per student, but that Wayne
State's share was only $725 for
each student.
With regard to the Senate's
Capital Outlay proposal President
Hatcher noted that the Institute-
Physics-Astronomy Bldg. was a.
greatly needed facility. He pointed
out, however, that the UniversityI
has responsibilities over a broad
area to which it is committed.
Legislature Committed
The Legislature has been com-
mitted for ten years to appropriate
funds for the second unit of the
Medical Science Building. There
was also an authorization made
for the school of music and the
second unit of the fluids engi-
neering laboratory, President Hat-'
cher said.
The President said he hoped to
make a presentation of the Uni-
versity's situation to the House
when it reconvenes the beginning
of next week.

nology.
Prof. Debye; who received the
Nobel Prize in 1936, is a retired
mber Pofthe faculty of Cornell
University. He will conduct lec-
tures, seminars and discussioni
with the faculty of the chemistry
department on the shape of mole-
cules and factors dealing with thi
problem.
Prof. Debye will also be avail-
able for consultation with faculty
members interested in -spectro-
scopy, electron diffraction, X-ray
diffraction and theoretical chem-
istry.
MSU-0 Cuts
Frosh Class
Of Next Fall
Michigan State Universty'ns
branch at Oakland will cut the
enrollment of its freshman class
for next fall in half due to legis-
lative budget cuts, Durward B.
Verner, chancellor of MSU-d' re-
ported.
Instead of a planned 700 to 800
students, only between 350 and
400 can be enrolled, Varner said
yesterday.
MSU Provost Paul A. Miller said
the parent school will have to work
with what is available. He said it
would mean fewer instructors,
poorer equipment and curtailed
classes.
John A. Hannah, president of
Michigan State, related that MSU
will press for restoration of some
of the money cut by the Senate by
appealing to the House.
