Nye Sees Need for State Colleges
To Initiate More Efficient Plans
A recent study recommends that Michigan's colleges and univer-
sities operate on a year-round basis in the interest of efficiency and
economy, the United Press International reported yesterday.
The recommendation was included in a report submitted to Gov.
G. Mennen Williams by an informal advisory committee on higher
"While there is agreement among the committee members that
the state-controlled institutions of higher education generally make
good use of present facilities," Prof. Russell B. Nye, chairman of the

Kehoe Says
Tine' Story
Not Correct

Ray E. Kehoe of the Univer-
sity's Bureau of School Services
yesterday accused Time Magazine
ofhmisrepresentation of facts
which he gave them for their
April 18 issue.
The article, entitled "Don't Beat
the Band," involved an incident
which occurred in Parchment,
Mich. when Kehoe went to look
over their high school in his ca-
pacity as consultant for the North
Central Association of Colleges
and Secondary Schools, an ac-
creditation group.
It indlicated that Kehoe, faced
with a choice between elementary
school classrooms and a band
room for the high school, chose
the latter.
Time also said that Kehoe
"failed to observe the deficiency
of the school library, which needs
$15 thousand worth of new books,"
to concentrate on the deficiencies
in the band room, which needed
soundproofing and practice rooms.
Facts Different
The facts were quite different,
Kehoe declared. "I was invited by
the schoolauthorities to evaluate,
on an advisory basis, existing fa-
cilities in terms of North Associ-
ation standards.
"After reviewing all facilities
except the library, I reported that
the music room as it then existed
probably would not meet minimum
standards. '
He reported that some months
earlier the Parchment school au-
thorities had asked the Bureau of
School Services to send a con-
sultant on their library needs. A
special library consultant went
wthi Kehoe on the trip to Parch-
ment, and made a separate library
report. ""This is why I made no
library recommendations," he said.
No Discussion
"There was no discussion dur-
ing my visit of elementary school
needs." Kehoe said he never knew
of the conflict between band room
improvement and elementary
Questioned as to the actual
state of the Parchment library,
Kehoe said that it is deficient only
"in the sense that it is not com-
Authorities Act
The Parchment school authori-
ties have acted on a series of
recommendations made by the
library consultant and allocated
$15 thousand for books.
"The appropriation is fully ade-
quate; it takes time to fully meet
the minimum library standards.

committee and director of the div-
ision of language and literature at
Michigan State University, said,
"There is also the belief that even
more efficient use must be made
in the future,
"Under present conditions, the
use of our educational facilities
for three semesters or four quar-
ters during the year seems essen-
tial as a means of economy.
"The proposal is hardly very
startling," Prof. Nye added. "It
is probably the least controversial
and least original of the 11 major
recommendations the committee
made, and it is only a part of the
whole pattern."

Since the full text of the report

Nye was unable to discuss it fur-
A similar proposal for year-
round operation was considered
by the University Calendar Study
Committee two years ago.
At that time is was tentatively
suggested that the University
adopt a three semester system, a
one week examinaion period and
an advance registration program,
among other calendar changes.
Recommends Adjustment
The Committee recommended
that successive calendar adjust-
ments be made beginning in 1960,
so the University could operate
on a full year basis, if the situ-
ation demanded it, by 1964.
Additional study of the situa-
tion led to the conclusion that,
for the immediate future, the Uni-
versity should continue to operate
on a two-semester system and}
that conditions were not yet suic-
able for a decision regarding more
extended operation in the mid-
The University does, however,
have a three-semester calendar
that could be used, if the time
ever came when it needed to do
so, Vice-President and Dean of
Falulties Marvin L. Niehuss said
"It may very well become neces-
sary," Niehuss said, "but the situ-
ation is not immediate. We are
thinking of it in the same sense
that we are thinking of new build-
ings. We have no immediate plans
or dates."

RIGHTS CONFERENCE-Prof. Alvin D. Loving of the University's Flint branch listens reflectively
to the Chicago Urban League's Deputy Director, Ted Cobb, speak on the Negro adjustment to com-
munity segregation.
'Negro Com-munity' Called Artificial





in Demonstratio

The "Negro community" is an
artificial construction-a physical,
residential and spatial isolation of
the Negro without the instrument
of law, Ted Cobb, Deputy Director
of the Chicago Urban League said
last night.
Cobb and Herbert Hill, labor
secretary of the NAACP, were
members of a panel on "The Social
and Political Organization of the
Negro Community," moderated by
Prof. Alvin D. Loving, professor
of education at the University's
Flint campus.
Discussing the Negro's adjust-
ment to de facto segregation as
part of the conference for Human
Rights in the North, Cobb said this
adjustment "depends on what you
mean by adjustment."
Individual Alteration
"If you mean the individual's
altering himself in response to the
situation, then the Negro has not
adjusted," Cobb said. "He would
have no problems fi he had. The
Negro has not adjusted. He has
Cobb discussed the important
structures operating in the Negro
community, and the impact of
segregation on these structures.
He cited the "smugness of most
northern communities concerning
segregation vis a vis Southern
towns," using Chicago - "a bigger
and badder case of America, urban
center, U.S.A." as an example of
this segregation.
Part of History
Negroes have been a part of the
city's history since before its in-
corporation, he said, relating that
there was even an Indian tale that
"Chicago's first white man was a
black man." Yet Negroes who live
there now, in classic conditions of
overcrowding, have one-half to
one-quarter less income on the
average than the general popula-
Structures operating in the Ne-
gro community include the family,
which exercises a "protective func-

tion" with reference to hostile so-
ciety, he said.
Realization of this hostility is
carried on into adult life-onto
the college campus, where white
and black students sit in separate
groups in the cafeteria, where
minority group members are non-
participants in student affairs.
W ill Speak
Morris Milgram, the,, developer
of interracial housing projects
who is currently involved in the
Deerfield, Ill. Integrated housing
dispute, will address the Confer-
ence on Human Rights' in the
North tonight.
Milgram will speak at the ban-
quet scheduled for 6 p.m. in the
Union Ballroom, In addition, Lt.
Gov. John iSwainson will speak
At 10 a.m. there will be a panel
discussion on "lThe Dynamics of
Action." Mrs. Frances R. Cousens,
research director of the Michigan
Fair Employment Practices Com-
mission, will participate.
The workgroups will continue
their discussions at 2 p.m.
At 4:15 members of Human Re-
lations Boards from other colleges
and universities will meet with
the University's group. There will
also be a meeting for University
students to discuss action pro-
grams in Ann Arbor.
National Affairs Vice-President
of the National Student Associa-
tion, Curtis Gans, who has been
involved in the sit-in movement
in the South, and Barnard Lee,
recently expelled from Alabama
State College for Negroes and ar-
rested, will address the Conference
from 9 to 10 a.m. Lee is the stu-
dent representative for Martin
Luther King,

He advocated action - "the
pressing for an adequate diagnosis
of the problems in our society. We
get too happy about a drop of
water in a whole bucketful. We
feel the millenium has arrived,
and we can take a rest. We think
we're making progress, when the
truth is just that things are get-
ting worse more slowly."
This action also must be im-
mediate. "I do not subscribe to the
concept of gradualism. It is built
on a totalitarian image of society
in which we deal with people as
groups. Traditionally we have
'opened the gates' for groups-not
"What we have," he said, "is
not integration, but homogenized
segregation. We live, love and die
individually, and it is in these
terms that we must seek to remove
the obstacles here."
Economic Issues
Herbert Hill, labor secretary of
the NAACP, centered his discus-
sion on the economic issues facing
the Negro community, noting that
"The country is on the threshold
of significant changes in politics,
labor and economics."
He attributes the shifting scene
to the new self-image developed
in the past decade by the entire
Negro community, particularly
those in the South, and to the new
body of constitutional law altering
the place of Negroes in society.
He also noted that automation
has replaced many unskilled Ne-
gro workers, and that some of the
traditional areas of Negro em-
ployment such as railroads and
production lines are drying up.
The economic danger this en-
genders stems from the lack of
middle class Negro workers and
the "thin veneer of professionals"
as opposed to the mass of semi-
skilled and unskilled workers, ac-
cording to Hill. Actually, he con-
tinued, this makes the Fair Em-
ployment Practices Commission an
abstraction, unless we develop in-
dustrial skills in the Negro work-
ing class.

Michigan are literally running away with the major university events.
In the Penn Relays.
When the results were in from yesterday afternoon's leadoff
action in the gigantic track and field meet, they showed Michigan in
the first place in every event in which it was represented.
All three relay teams were supremely successful, one individual
had won his event and another qualified for the finals tomorrow.
Bird Keeps Title
Defending champion Lester Bird won the broad jump with a 24'-
2%" leap on his last try. Bothered by a recent leg injury, which had
severely restricted his training and slowed him in competition, he
was in third place going into the final round.
His previous jumps of 25' and 24'11" had been dissallowed be-
cause of fouls. However everything finally went right and he reclaim-
ed the title he won last year.
