ADMISSIONS POLICY:
Hatcher Views 'U' Expansion

By FAITH WEINSTEIN
The problems of pressure from
Increasing numbers of freshman
applications to the University "will
grow in perplexity and difficulty,"
President Harlan Hatcher said
yesterday.
President Hatcher's answer to
this pressure on the University is
"gradual growth which will allow
it at all times to provide as much
educational service as is consis-
tent with the standards it has
maintained."

He pictured the University
growing "until everyone - deans,
faculties, administrators -every-
one is convinced that if we go far-
ther the University will start a
decline."
He added that the breaking
point is far from reached, and
that the deans of the colleges and
schools agree with him.
Need Sufficient Budget
"of course we would require a
sufficient budget to supply facili-

ties and faculties" which would
allow the University to maintain
its present standards. "We can
grow as long as we grow in con-
fidence and strength."
Asked about pressures from the
State Legislature for sudden Uni-
versity expansion, Hatcher said
that there were "no pressures to
make the University do more than
gradually grow."
He dismissed the bill requiring
state - supported institutions to
limit their out-of-state enrollment
to 10 per cent as "not a serious
pressure on the University."
"Limitation on out - of - state
students is the inevitable answer
to "a freshman applications prob-
lem where you can only accept
one- third of the applicants.
"We have a rising number of
fine young Michigan students com-
ing out of high schools now. If
you had the choice, would you1
give the place to the non-resi-.
dent?"
On the other hand, he felt that
overly severe limitation on the
numbers of out-of-state students
would be very unfortunate. "We
would be in a very sorry way if
the states began to wall off an
interchange of students.
Opposes Provincialism
"I firmly believe that it would
be a mistake to make up a fresh-
man class strictly of a provincial4
selection," of entirely in-statet
students. He added that the Uni-
versity has the highest percentage
of out-stateenrollment of anyt
state university.
The President offered several
defenses of out-of-state enroll-1
ment. "Out-of-state students pro-r
vide a better educational environ-
ment for our young people. Thet
cosmopolitan nature of the Uni-
versity is an educational advan-
tage. Out-of-state students alsol
pay significantly more."r
President Hatcher defendedthe
proposed quotas on specific con-e
gested metropolitan areas as "im-
portant to keeping the Universitya
cosmopolitan. $
"We now have an extremelya
heavy enrollment from the Atlan-
tic seaboard," he said. "We must
not neglect the other states."
He added the fact that the!
University is by no means entirely1
state - supported. "Fifty-six perP
cent of the buildings out theret
were built, not by the Legislature,e
but by friends of the University:
from all over the country." h

ARTIST OF ABSTRACTIONS--Speaking to a group of Univer-
sity students yesterday, commercial artist David Stone Martin
explained how he has fallen "in love with" black and white
abstracts of "pure line.'" Martin's much lauded style of line
drawings has projected him to the top of his field.
Commercial Artist Martin
EXplains n Astractions

By CAROLINE DOW
"You see that little bird in the
corner?
"That's a gig bird, my own crea-
tion. You see, when a group of jazz
musicians get together for a one
night stand, they have a meeting
of minds called a gig. That's a gig
bird."
So spoke David Stone Martin of
one of his black and white line
drawings. One of the many draw-
ings done in a style that has made
him famous, this particular draw-
ing, with a minimum of lines, toldj
the story of a group of musicians
gathering for an engagement.
Draws and Designs
"When I draw, I design at the
same time. I abstract a great deal.
I am in love with the method of
black and white abstracts of pure
line without models," he said.

To Consider
Picket Replies,
Fate of J-Hop
Student Government Council
will consider a recommendation to
abolish J-Hop at its meeting to-
night.
J-Hop Central Committee chair-
man Alex Fisher, '61, will explain
to the Council that the dance is
unprofitable both in terms of
money and time. The Council
would drop the dance by not calen-
daring it.
Replies have been received to
Council inquiries about the policies
of the national chain stores in-
volved in the sit-in strikes in the
South.
The Council has passed a mo-
tion to endorse the picketing "as a
means to object to the policy of
these stores" if inadequate replies
are received.
Administrative Vice - President
James Hadley, '61, will give de-
tails of the proposed reorganiza-
tion of the Council's Administra-
tive Wing.
The Council will consider again
the motion of Roger Seasonwein,
'61, to send a letter to the presi-
dent of the University of Illinois
supporting Prof. Leo Koch. Prof.
Koch was recently suspended for
advocating pre-marital sexual re-

Martin was forced by financial
difficulties to learn to paint by
observing the masters at the art
institute in Chicago in his free'
time and his career was launched
with almost no formal instruction.
How? "Because I was always con-
vinced of what I was," he said.
Much of his early work was,
done on record albums during and
following World War II when his
sparse, economical line drawings
were preferred to the more ex-
pensive color art.
He delights in using heavy
blacks in abstracts and absence
of color to outline images. The!
crow quill and black and white
are his favorite mediums although
he works in color and other
methods to "give a sense of variety
to my work."
Advocates Exploration
To keep work from getting stale
he advocates not a change of style
but a ''"deeper exploration of dif-
ferent applications to different
things."
Looking at slides of his work
over the last ten or fifteen years,
Martin was "surprised at the con-
stancy and lack of deep change"
in his work. He attributed this to
his continued exploration of his
favorite medium.
This black and white enables
him to produce simple juxtaposi-
tion of images such as one port-
folio sample of a victorian chair
and a trombone. At present he is
experimenting with the expression
of action through the use of trans-
parent images.
Slides of Peoplej
Most of David Stone Martin's
slides were of people, j abb people
or late-at-night-in-Penn Station
people. He draws people for peo-
ple.
Flashing on the screen a draw-
ing of a wide eyed baby boy, he!E
chuckled todrepresentatives of a
Detroit advertising agency in the
audience, "That's Belafonte's
young son. Never knew that when
you put him on an insurance ad
did you?"

stemming from charges of fraud
in the March 15 presidential elec-
tions.
After the resignation is accept-
ed, a caretaker government will
take over until elections for presi-
dent, vice president and a com-
plete new national assembly can
be held within the next three
months. Huh, as ranking member
of the cabinet, will head the care-
taker regime.
Huh is a 62-year-old Independ-
ent, and former acting premier.
Rhee named his senior man in a
new Cabinet this week after a
Cabinet from the President's Lib-
eral party resigned. Vice President
John M. Shang, leader of the
anti-Rhee Democratic Party, re-
signed last week. He is considered
a likely candidate for the presi-
dency.
To End Rioting
To end the huge, anti-govern-
ment demonstrations in which at
least 145 persons had died in the
past week, Rhee announced yes-
terday that he had ordered new
elections held, ordered Vice Presi-
dent Lee Ki-Poong to give up all
his public posts, agreed to a sys-
tem of cabinet government re-
sponsible to the Assembly, and
would himself resign if the people
wanted him to.
The National Assembly met at
once and, as an expression of the
will of the people, demanded the
old president's resignation im-+
mediately.
Crowd Celebrate
Rhee's announcement brought
jubilant crowds into the streets.
The throngs celebrated until cur-
few last nidnight.
Rhee for the moment was still
[n the presidential mansion, but
there was widespread speculation
he would return to exile in the
United States, where he spent
many of the years of Japan's oc-
upation of Korea.
Huh quoted him as saying he
would "devote the rest of my life
to the country and people as an
ordinary citizen." This apparently
meant he would not be a candi-
date for the presidency in the
elections.

The University International
Students Association's purpose,
according to the constitution, is
"to sponsor educational, cultural,
athletic, and social events, and to
represent the foreign students in
issues which involve their inter-
ests."
Whether or not the organiza-
tion has been accomplishing these
functions has long been a subject
of debate. At present, approxi-
mately 300 'international and
American students are members.
Took Office
The present administration took
office with approximately $200 of
ready-made debts and practically
no record of the previous year's
activities. Interest was at a low
ebb among the dues-payers.

SUMMIT TALKS :
Nixon Set as Alternate
For Ike at Conference
WASHINGTON ()-Vice-President Richard M. Nixon will sub-
stitute for President Dwight D. Eisenhower at the East-West summit
conference if the President has to return to the United States because
of "domestic requirements."
The White House in reporting this yesterday said Eisenhower
could spend only a week in Paris because a visit to Portugal is now
set for May 23. The summit meeting of Western leaders and Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev is to
open May 16. 1 V. _T .JwQ

However, ISA was able to in-
crease at least the number of pay-
ing members, participate in a
good number of its usual activi-
ties, and come out of the year
out of the red, although finances
still remain a problem.
Laboring under a constitution
which only outlines the barest
skeleton of an organization, the
present officers have tried earn-
estly to run ISA effectively. How-
ever, "ISA up to this date and to
my knowledge has been an execu-
tive committee," Miss Carole
Blinder, activities chairman, com-
mented.
She observed that although
there are five committee chair-
men, she does not know of any
committees. The executive board
meets every other week, though
general meetings have never been
a matter of policy. "Something

definitely lacking in ISA is meet-
ings per se," she said.
"In theory, ISA should be work-
ing jointly with the nationality
clubs. It should be a relationship
of cooperation and calendaring,"
Miss Blinder said.
To Meet Students
"I think there are lots of Ameri-
cans who would like to meet in-
ternational students and who
would like to work on projects, if
there were any way to sign up for
the various. jobs," Miss Blinder
said.
However, "As a member, I've
heard nothing about ISA activi-
ties," said Dietrich Bergmann,
chairman of the SGC Interna-
tional Coordinating Board. "One
thing that has been good is con-
tact with members, but how can
this be done with 300 members?
"Members should be considered
as supporters of ISA, instead of
as members," Bergmann empha-
sized.
The concensus of opinion was
that ISA exists to bring interna-
tional and American students to-
gether to meet each other and
help them to adjust to each other.
Members should feel more a part
of a group, not just the repre-
sentatives of a one-dollar mem-
bership fee.
Provides Council
The constitution provides for a
presidents' council to coordinate
activities between ISA and the
various nationality clubs. This has
only convened once or twice, and
projects involving all the groups
have been difficult to engineer.
Particularly touchy was the cal-
endaring problem of not getting
two events scheduled on the same
evening.
"There are almost no programs
as I know. Most meetings are
either directly or indirectly con-
nected with dancing," Ramesh
Patel, Grad., said. This becomes a
real problem, when students from
many lands are unused to this
type of social activity.
Makes Suggestion
He further suggested for ISA
sponsorship activities which have
been attempted by other organi-
zations in the past or which are
traditionally handled by other
groups. Among these were Inter-
national dinners, the World's Fair
to be handled by ISA, and a
brother-sister program.
"I am anxious to see more in-
terest in ISA, and I hope that a
result of the elections will be a
stronger, more active organiza-
tion," Arthur Milne, ISA advisort
said.

to Lisbon was selected with the
expectation that the summit con-
ference would have ended by that
time. He plans only an overnight
stay in Portugal.
The White House said:
"Should the conference continue
beyond the dates of the Presi-
dent's visit to Portugal, however,
President Eisenhower either will
return to Paris, or if domestic re-
quirements make this impossible,
will request the Vice-President to
represent the United States for
the remainder of the conference."
The White House did not ex-
plain what domestic requirements
might make it necessary for the
president to return even if the
summit conference dragged on be-
yond May 23.
But Congress will be driving to-
ward adjournment, and Eisen-
hower might feel he should be
here to sign bills and help push
legislation through in the closing
days of the session.

DiscussonS
The controversial issues involved
in holding a constitutional con-
vention in Michigan will be dis-
cussed at 7 p.m. tomorrow.
Participants will be August
Scholle, president of Michigan
AFL - CIO; John Racklyeft, na-
tional director for the Michigan
Junior Chamber of Commerce; and
Stanley Powell, Farm Bureau leg-
islative agent.
Lynn Eley, associate director of
the University Extension Service,
will serve as moderator.
The debate, sponsored by the
Student Government Council, will
be held in the Multi-purpose Rm.
of the Undergraduate Library.
Gov. G. Mennen Williams re-
cently said that he will promote
the drive for a convention, while
Scholle has tried to discourage it.

Of Defense
Advises Preparation
For 'Limited' War
By MICHAEL BURNS
Special to The Daily '
LANSING-The possibilities are
nine out of ten that the next war
the United States fights will be a
limited, and not a nuclear war,
Sen. Stuart Symington of Missouri
said here yesterday.
Symington, speaking at a press
conference on a two day tour of
the state, said that this country
must be prepared to "handle the
limited war," adding that there
have been 20 limited armed con-
flicts since World War II, none of
them of the nuclear variety.
"We are not in a position to
handle this type of situation," he
warned.
Lists Needs
There are three things this nay
tion needs, he said:,
1) The ability to "get off the
ground and destroy your enemy."
2) "To make sure any possible.
enemy knows this."
3) "The ability to handle the
limited war."
"We have the first and therefore
the third," he said, but "rm ab-
solutely sure in my own mind we
don't have the second."

FIRST AMATEUR PERFORMANCE:
'Look Homeward, Angel' Opens Toda

By BEATRICE TEODORO !
"Four cents a letter on any
tombstone you choose," is the
epitaph bargain offered by W. 0.
Gant, the sensitive, stone-carving
father in "Look Homeward, Angel."
On one of the drunken sprees
that release him from a suffocat-
ing home environment, Gant is
commenting on the cold economic
facts of a business that depends
on death.
The Ketti Frings adaptation of
Thomas Wolfe's novel opens at 8
p.m. today at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre. The speech depart-
ment production is the first ama-
teur performance of the play in
the United States.
Crossroads of Life
The play presents Wolfe, as
young Eugene Gant (played by
Richard Lenz, '61) at the cross-

of Carrara marble that he wishes
to be placed on his grave.
Technical Difficulties
The play presented certain tech-
nical difficulties. Much attention
is paid to the use of lights. A
prominent roof silhouette draws
attention to the background lights
which carry the scenes from morn-
ing to dusk. Differences in light-
ing emphasize the shifts from ex-
terior to interior scenes. A highly
stylized handling of lights is used
during the prologue and epilogue.
Staging a Problem
The staging requires that rooms
inside the Dixieland boardinghouse
and the front porch be simul-
taneously visible. In the New
York production, this was accom-
plished by an open space with a
rotating stage holding two room
sets. In the speech department
version. the smaller stage space

Returning to the domestic scene,
Symington discussed his campaign
plans, saying that he had no
formal c.ommittee organized in
Michigan but that he did have
friends who were interested in his
candidacy.
Asked whether he considered
Gov. G. Mennen Williams a top
contender for the vice-presidential
nomination, the Democratic sena-
tor stated, "I think he'd be a fine
vice-president."
Symington spoke t'o Williams
later in the day.
He also said that Williams' back-
ing would be "considerable sup-
port" at the Democratic conven-
tion in July, emphasizing that he
was not, however, making any
"deals" with politicians.
Not a Dark Horse
The senator dispelled any views
that he was planning a "dark-
horse" campaign, when he said he
hoped he would be 'nominated on
the first ballot at Los Angeles.
He explained his abstention
from entering primary campaigns
by saying that there were so few
