PASSES HURDLE-The proposed medium-energy cyclotron for the University completed another step
toward actuality yesterday when the House Appropriations committee approved a $1.8 million addition
to the Atomic Energy Commission budget. The proposed cyclotron differs from the present cyclotron
(above) in that it will be used to study the nucleil of heavier elements.

*..new basketball coach

Pick Strack
To Coach
M' Cagers
Former Michigan basketball
star and athletic staff member,
,Dave Strack, was named as the
Wolverines new head basketball
coach yesterday. .
Also receiving approvement
from the Board of Regents was
former Michigan diving star, pick
Kimball, who will take over as the
new diving and assistant swim-
ming coach.
Strack will take the place of
Bill Perigo who resigned just last
week, while Kimball is replacing
Bruce Harlan who met with a
'fatal accident last summer.
It was just last spring that
Strack left the job of assistant
basketball coach under Perigo to
take over the head coaching job
at the University of Idaho,
Lack Of 'Material
Despite a lack of material,
Strack's team posted a 11-15
record against tough West Coast
opposition. He earned praise from
Pacific Northwest coaches for do-
ing a lot with a little.
At Moscow; Idaho, Strack said,
"I will leave the kindly atmos-
phere of this state with the mem-
ory of a wonderful year, but the
opportunity 'offered by my alma
mater was just one I could not
turn down."
Strack attended Michigan back
in the early forties, earning three
letters in basketball. After serving
in the Marine Corps, he returned
to Michigan in 1949 as freshman
coach under Ernie McCoy.
Moves Up
Three years later he moved up
to the position of assistnat coach,

the AEC budget by the Appropria-
tions committee," Meader said.
The cyclotron proposal is part
of a larger public works bill which
Meader expects to reach the House
floor Tuesday. "If the House passes
the bill, it could go through com-
mittee and out of the Senate with-
in three or four days," Hart added.
Were Congress to pass the cyclo-
tron proposal, the University would
provide housing for it on North
Campus. The State Legislature ap-
propriated $1,050,000 for the con-
struction of this building last week.
To Contain Offices
The building will contain offices,
laboratories, seminar rooms and
two machine rooms to house the
new medium energy cyclotron, and
a lower energy cyclotron which is
now in use. These machine rooms
will be enclosed in concrete, under-
ground,.with four feet of dirt cov-
ering them; this will eliminate any
radiation hazards, Lynn W. Fry,
University architect, said.

At their monthly meeting yes-
terday, the Regents approved the
asking of bids for the cyclotron
housing. It will take 30 days to
get the bids and 10 to 12 months
to build the housing. "If Congress
passes the cyclotron project, the
University will have construction
begun immediately," Fry added.
Costs Rise
The cyclotron housing plan was
drawn up three years ago. "Build-
ing costs have risen 10 per cent
since the initial planning; it will
cost the University about $100,000
more now, than it would have in
1957," Fry commented.
The proposed cyclotron will be
unique because it will be used to
study the nucleii of heavy elements
as well as light elements. "It will
fill a gap in existing cyclotrons,"
Sawyer told Congress in April.
The cyclotron proposal will prob-
ably be acted upon before adjourn-

Alter Rule
For Group,
The Regents yesterday approved
several amendments to the sections
of the by-law relating to the fac-
ulty Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs.
They concern the three sub-
committees on educational policies,
plant and equipment, and public
relations, which will be replaced
by standing sub-committees, de-
signated by the Committee. The
new groups will work with each
of the vice - presidents and the
director of University relations.
The changes "provides a uni-
form method for making appoint-
ments to the sub - committees,"
Prof. Ferrel Head of the political
science department, Secretary to
the Faculty Senate, said. Under
the old system only two of the
sub - committees had members
chosen by the Committee itself;
the third was appointed by. the
University President.
In the future, the Senate Ad-
visory committee "will recommend
persons to be appointed to the
President and Regents," who will
appoint them to the sub-commit-
"This gives more flexibility to
what the sub-committees will be,"
Prof. Heady added, "and allows the
Committee to designate the sub-
committees that it wants."
The new amendment' specifies
that the Committee "shall provide
for appointment of all committees
created by the Senate." The old
section had specified the sub-com-
mittees on plant and equipment
and public relations were to be
appointed annually "by the Presi-
dent after consultation with the
Senate Advisory Committee."
Thus committee designation has'
been completely turned over to the
faculty group.

The Regents also voted to
establish a $200,000 student aid
fund to help students for whom
the fee increase will cause a ser-
ious financial hardship.
Boosts Budget
The fee increase, amounting to
approximately $1.6 million, boosts
the University's operating budget
(composed basically of the legis-
lative appropriation and student
fees) to $46.2 million for 1960-61.
This is up $3.6 million from last,
year's budget., More than 60 per-
cent of this amount will be used"
for selective faculty salary in-
The remainder will go for li-
brary improvement and plant
maintenance and services.
Considered Necessary
The increase was considered.
necessary since the legislative ap-
propriation of $35.2 million "fell
short of even the minimum criti-
cal needs of the University," Pres-
ident Harlan Hatcher said.
"It is with reluctance that we
turn to student fees to supplement
the appropriation," he added.
"We would like to keep fees as
low as possible, Regent Eugene
B. Power said, voicing the atti-
tudes of the majority of the Re-
"But over and above our re-
sponsibility to the state and its

'Derelict In Duty'
"If we fail in this, we are as
derelict in our duty as if we didn't
consider the students .. . we have
no other alternative" than to ap-
prove the proposed fee increases.

dents was opposed by Regents
Irene Murphy and William K. Mc-
Mrs. Murphy also voted against
the $150 increase for out-state stu-
dents. She favored a $210 increase
for out-state students and none for
Michigan residents.
Lynn M. Bartlett, state superin--
tendent of public instruction and
an ex-officio member of the Board
.of Regents, also opposed the fee


Set Changes
In School's
The curriculum, committee of
the business-administration school
yesterday approved a new 'pro-
gram of graduation requirements
for-sidents- that, school.
The program, which will apply
to all students .'admitted to the
school beginning with the second
semester of next year, comprises
three major categories of gradua-
tion requirements: liberal arts
and sciences; business administra-
tion; and 18 hours of free elec-
Prof. William J. Schlatter, as-
sistant dean of the school, said
that the program conforms close-
ly to the recommendation made in
two important studies of American
business administration schools in
that it emphasizes breadth in both
a general education and in pre-
paration for'business.
The two studies are "Higher
Education for Business," by Rob-
ert Aaron Gordon and James Ed-
win Howell, supported by the Ford
Foundation; and "The Education
of American Businessmen," by
Frank C. Pierson, backed by the
Carnegie Corporation, both pub-
lished in 1959.
Survey Schools
The authors surveyed American
business administration -schools
and made certain suggestions
which said in general that busi-
ness students should be required
to take a wider selection of
courses, and standards, in these
colleges should be raised.
The University business admin-
istration school will continue. t
offer a two-year program; accept-
ing students at the beginning of
their Junior year from junior col-
leges, other four-year institutions
or colleges within the Universtiy.
Of the 120 hours required for
graduation with a bachelor's de-
gree, 60 must be in the liberal arts
and sciences; including six in Eng-
lish composition, two semesters
of economics, and mathematics
through Math 13.
Liberal Artsy
Also in liberal arts must be
three of the following four: nine
hours in the humanities or philos-
ophy, nine in the social sciences
(other than economics), eight ir
natural sciences, and a fourth-
semester proficiency in a foreign

be taken in non-business electives

Suggests Delay
He suggested the Regents delay
action until early in the fall when
there will "undoubtedly" be a spe-
cia" session of the Legislature to
vote additional state funds.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said the fee
increase is expected to have no
significant effect on out-state en-
roilments since increases in' the
past' have had none.
The last fee increase, which
raised in-state fees to $250 and
out-state fees to $600 annually,
was made three years ago.
Michigan State University and
Wayne State University are also
considering action on student fees.
