took a $5,000 salary cut to teach
here.
"This school is not tradition
bound, it encourages initiative,"
Gprald Straka, history instructor,
says.
"Everything here makes you
want to be a better teacher," Wil-
liam Klubach, an assistant pro-
fessor of history declared. "Both
the student body and the faculty
are dedicated."
Rarely is it given a man to
build a state university from the
ground up, to help create an in-
stitution designed to last for cen-

turies and educate millions
young men and women.
That opportunity came

of'
to

MSU Vice-President Varner, who
called on some of the best minds
in America to help when he was
named chancellor of the new
school.
Offered Estate
Three years ago Mr. and Mrs.
Alfred G. Wilson offered MSU
President John A. Hannah their
1,600-acre estate, Meadow Brook
Farm, 25 miles north of Detroit.
The property included a 40-room
home and baronial 125 - room

Meadow Brook Hall, which in 1928
cost $3.5 million to build and $6.5
million to furnish with art trea-
sures from around the world.
With the estate went a gift of
$2 million for construction of a
classroom building and a combina-
tion laboratory and faculty office
building. Oakland County, in
which MSU-O is located, financed
construction of a $700,000 stu-
dent center.
Acquisition of additional land
has made the campus into 2,100
acres of gently rolling land in the
heart of a great industrial com-
plex.
The Wilsons retain life - time
use of the buildings on the estate,
built by Mrs. Wilson's first hus-
band, the late John Dodge, De-
troit automobile pioneer.
Name Foundation
Fifty community leaders, in-
cluding labor officials, corpora-
tion executives and educators,
were named to the MSUT-O foun-
dation. The Foundation brought
together 28 leading Americans for
a series of panel discussions.
The panelists included Milton
S. Eisenhower, president of Johns_
Hopkins University, Lee Du Bridge,
president of California Institute
of Technology, publisher Henry
R. Luce and anthropologist Mar-
garet Mead.
The panelists were asked Just
one question: "Given a clean
slate, how would you build the
ideal university for our age?"
Slap at Education
The answers were a direct slap
at much that is common in higher
education today. Universities are
not tough enough, the panelists
said. There is too much emphasis
on vocational training; curricu-
lums are too complex and spe-
cialized.
The panel's views on what
should be taught in the ideal uni-
versity have been incorporated in
the curriculum here.
For instance, the deans of five
great engineering schools said that
many engineers find that the
techniques they learned in school
are obsolete within months after
graduation.
At MSU-O, students in en-
gineering science will get a broad
background of mathematics,'
chemistry and physics and some
specialties such as mechanics and
electronics. With the heavy sched-
ule in liberalrarts, they willmbe
prepared as broadly trained men
able to direct massive combina-
tions of men and materials in en-
gineering and scientific problems
not even dreamed of today.
