Oakay New
A University calendar for the
years 1960-61 and 1961-62, withI
only "minor changes" from the oneI
to be used this fall, was approved
by the University Board of Regents,
The biggest change in the calen-
dar is the lengthening by about,
four days of the period between
the end of Christmas vacation and,
the end of classes for the first
The period has in the past been
called too short to accomplish
much in the classroom.
The new provision allows the
second semester schedule to run
about one week later than the
schedule for the 1959-60 year.
The calendars will be as follows:
First Semester, 1960-64
Orientation begins Sept. 12
Registration: Sept.,14 to Sept. 17
Classes begin (law school): Sept.
Classes begin (other units):
Sept. 19
Thanksgiving recess: Nov. 23-27
Christmas recess: Dec. 17-Jan.
Classes End: Jan. 21
Examination period: Jan. 23-
Feb. 2
Midyear graduation: Jan. 28
Semester ends Feb. 4
Second Semester, 1960-61
Orientation begins Feb. 6
Registration: Feb. 8-Feb. 11
Classes begin (law school): Feb.
Classes begin (other units):
Feb. 13
Spring recess: April,1-9
Classes end: May 31
Examination period: June 2-
June 13
Commencement: June 17
The 1961-62 calendar follows a
similar order, although each event
is scheduled one day earlier, and
spring vacation runs from April 7
through 16.

of the administration to serve on
the Committee.
The Vice-President for Student
Affairs will also sit on the com-
mittee as an ex-officio member
without vote, as will the ninth
member, a University alumnus
appointed by the president.
Criteria for review will now
include procedural irregularities,
jurisdictional questions or "un-
reasonable action" on the part of
The changes in the Board in
Review are not the only altera-
tions made in the original plan
by the Clarification Committee,
although they are perhaps the
largest ones.
The functions of the Council,
listed in the original Plan, have
been revised somewhat in the
process of clarification. The first
change in the section on "Func-
tions" modifies the phrase in the
original Plan which reads "In ac-
cordance with Regental and ad-
ministrative policy" to "In ac-
cordance with Regental policy."

but It will cumulatively increase
each quarter."
Use Quarter System
The Dearborn Center will oper-
ate on a quarter system the year
around, Stirton said. "Each quar-
ter is identical with the others,
and we will have no high or low
spots as far as enrollment fluctu-
ation, goes.
"We are going to accept enroll-
ment applications until the day
before classes begin for the Sep-
tember quarter. We can do this
because we aren't crowded yet;
We still have room for more,"
Stirton said.
Last year's Flint College enroll-
ment was approximately 400 stu-
dents, and officials expect enroll-
ment at that unit to remain steady
for this year.
Elsie Fuller, assistant dean of
women, explained that the dean of
women's office would accept hous-
ing applications until the admis-
sions office put a limit on the
number of applications they could
Creates Vacancies
Last year, Mrs. Fuller said, clos-
ing down Jordan Hall for plumb-
ing repairs created "vacancies,"
because the Jordan space was not
actually utilized; the women who
would have lived in Jordan Hall
were moved into Mary Markley
dormitory, and thereby reduced
the capacity of Mary Markley by
that number.
Also, she continued, there were
about 100 spaces in Mary Markley
that were not ready for occupancy
by the time students moved in last
fall, and when these were finished,
the dean of women's office allowed
some women from Victor Vaughan
and Couzens to move in, thereby
creating vacancies in the latter
This year, Mrs. Fuller empha-
sized, there will be room for all
of the women students who must
live in University dormitories, and
the dean of women's office does
not anticipate -any ,vacancies.
To Close Mosher
Just as they did last year with
Jordan Hall, though, the Univer-
sity will close down Mosher Hall
for repairs, and install the for-
mer * Mosher residents in Mary
Markley for this year, which will
again reduce the actual Markley
capacity by about 250.
University women students, for
the most part, are housed in Uni-
versity . dormitories, or sorority
houses and annexes, with a much
smallerpercentage of women liv-

ing in cooperative houses, league
houses and apartments.
By far the largest dormitory,
Mary Markley is also the newest.
With a capacity of 1,170 students,
Markley sits atop a hill behind the
other women's dormitories on
"The Hill," and was first opened
for occupancy last fall.
Unique Residence
Fletcher Hall, which houses 79
students, offers a unique way of
living for women students who
desire a room, but who may want
to eat their meals elsewhere than
in the dormitory. It offers resi-
dents the opportunity tortake a
meal job if they desire.
University cooperatives - Hen-
derson, Geddes and Cheever -
combine the advantages of small-
group living with economy. Wom-
en students work a few hours each
week in the house, and in return
they pay a much reduced rate of
room and board.
Geddes is the smallest of the
three University cooperatives with
26 students, while Cheever has 29
and Henderson is the largest with
30 residents.
Operating under the University
dormitory system but with a pri-
vate bequest, Martha Cook dormi-
tory houses 151 women in a stately
residence next door to the Law
Quadrangle, which was also the
result of William Cook's bequest.
Sororities Build
Sorority houses and their an-
nexes are expected to house ap-
proximately 1,300 women this
year, Elizabeth Leslie, assistant
dean of women, said.
A number of houses have in-
creased their capacity by moving,
building additions to existing
houses, or acquiring annexes, she
Alpha Gamma Delta sorority is
one which has added on to the
existing house, Mrs. Leslie noted.
By constructing a facade and
joining the annex to the main
house next door, the Alpha Gams
have increased the capacity of
their house from 40 women to 72,
although they plan to house only
65 women this fall.
Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority
has also added to their existing
house, and thereby increased the
capacity to 63. Last year the
sorority could house only 50
Alpha Xi Delta sorority has
built a brand-new house for Its
members, and will this year house
65 women in it. The previous
capacity of the sorority was 18
in the main house, and 35 in its
annex; the new house has a capa-

city of 70, although all
will not be utilized.

the spacel

Phi Mu sorority has purchased3
the Phi Chi fraternity house, and
will be able to house all its mem-
bers in one building, although it
will not actually have more room
than it did previously. Last year,
the sorority housed 22 members in
the main house and 22 in the
annex, and this year the new
house will hold 43 members.
Plan Annexes
Kappa Delta and Chi Omega
sororities are both hoping to have
their own annexes; Kappa Delta
will house 10 in the annex they
are planning to buy, in addition to
42 members in the main house,
while Chi Omega can house 50
in the main residence and hopes
to put nine in its annex.
According to Mrs. Leslie, the
dean of women's office is still
placing transfer students in some
of the sorority houses, but "all
spaces in the houses and annexes
will be filled."
The three men's dormitories
have a combined capacity of 3,328
students; individually, East Quad-
rangle has a capacity of 1,050,
West Quadrangle has a capacity
of 1;049 and South Quadrangle,
the newest of the men's dormitor-
ies, has a capacity of 1,229.
As they did last year, Tyler
House and Prescott House in East
Quadrangle will serve as graduate
and transfer houses, respectively.

Tyler House has a capacity of 118
students, and Prescott House will
hold 121. Frederick House in South
Quadrangle will also be a transfer
house, with a capacity of 59 stu-1

Cross predicted that the number1

bonus plays will all be presented
in Trueblood Aud.
Regular speech department pro-
ductions will begin at 8 p.m. in
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. This.
will mark the first season during
which each play will be presented
four nights. The opera will run for
five performances.
Because of the added demand
for tickets, the department this
year added an extra night to each
play's run. During the summer

session the speech department
playbill had sell-outs on 14 of 21
performances given.
Staff Directors
The speech department main-
tains its own staff of directors.
Prof. William P. Halstead will
direct "Horse Eats Hat" and "The
Way of the World" this season.
Prof. Hugh Z. Norton will direct
"Epitaph for George Dillon."
The operas will have Prof. Jack
E. Bender as director and Prof.
Josef Blatt of the music school as
musical director and conductor for
the performances.
Prof. Claribel Baird will direct
"Look Homeward Angel" and "I
Knock at the Door."
"Horse Eats Hat" had its Paris
premiere in 1851 and was revived
in 1938 by Gaston- Baty at the
Comedie Francaise. There are
songs within the play, although
this is not a musical comedy.
"Epitaph for George Dillon" is
co-authored by angry young man
John Osborne whose play, "Look
Back in Anger" was featured on
the summer playbill. The work
offers a portrait of a man who is
a failure.
"The Way of the World" is res-
toration comedy, which features
"delightful amorality."
"Look Homeward Angel" is set
in a North Carolina town in 1916.
