COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
Enrollments Rise-and Fall

New IBM Computer Installed at 'U'
To Speed Handling of Research Data

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio
State Lantern reports the uni-
versity's residence halls "bursting
at the seams."
An expected wave of cancella-
tions which failed to materialize
brought the overcrowding. Some
-r freshman women have been tem-.

porarily housed in guest rooms,
study rooms, typing rooms, and
recreation rooms.
In the men's dorms, some 100
double rooms have been convert-
ed to triples, housing the largest
number of men ever to live in
Ohio State residence halls.

to settle down soon.

NORMAN, Okla.-At Oklahoma
University resident enrollment has
decreased 400 since last fall.
However, there is an increase
of 328 in overall enrollment.
The school's president explains
why: "We have been improving
our standards gradually, and the
elimination from our class sched-
ule of certain high school classes
in mathematics will certainly
cause a reduction in the number
of freshmen."
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Trav-
eling through the Midwest on his
way to an annual Darwin confer-
ence at the University of Chicago,
author and biologist Sir Julian
Huxley told Indiana University
students, "Evolution is looking at
itself."
"It is looking into the future -
realizing the greater possibilities
of man in a psycho-social process,"
he said.
Huxley spoke on "Biological
Psycho-social Evolution." Indicat-
ing that man is the only animal
to have experienced the last phase
of evolution - the psycho-social
process - he said man 4nhabits a
sphere of ideas as well as of en
vironments.
The critical point in evolution
has been reached, Sir Julian as-
serted. Because we are aware of
the process, self-analysis will en-
ter; and men will purposely pursue
their own evolution.

LOS ANGELES, Calif.-Chosen
on the basis of grades and test
results, 102 high school seniors
from 11 local and private schools
will take courses at UCLA concur-
rently with their regular high
school work.-
The purpose of the program is
not to take capable students out
of high school before graduation,
a spokesman explained. Rather, it
specifically aims at helping the
student earn advanced credit,

AUSTIN, Texas -- In a recent
meeting at San Antonio, the Uni-
versity of Texas Board of Regents
accepted "in principle" Oak Hills
Medical Center as a proposed lo-
cation for a new university medi-
cal branch.
A $14 million legislative appro-
priation was proposed to "build
the first phase" of the medical
school. Annual operating expendi-
tures of $2 million each were pre-
dicted for four classes of 50 stu-
dents each, with the cost rising
by about 25 per cent as enrollment
increases to possibly 100 students
per class.
City Manager
To Give Talk
George Bean, City Manager of
San Diego, California, will ad-
dress a social seminar under the
auspices of the Institute of Pub-
lic Administration at 8 p.m. to-
morrow.
The topic of his speech will be
"A Manager Looks at Urban Prob-
lems." It will be delivered in the
East Conference Room, Rackham
Building.

A new IBM 704, which will in-
crease the speed of handling re-
search data by as much as 100
times, has been installed at the
University.
"Speeds are fantastically fast on
this computer," Prof. Robert C. F.
Bartels, director of the new Com-
puting Center, said.
The 704 can perform 40,000
additions of 10 decimal numbers

"FANTASTICALLY FAST" NEW COMPUTER-The University's n
available for use by students in courses which use a computel

per second and 5,000 multiplica-
tions or divisions per second.
The Computing Center, located
in North University Building (for-
merly occupied by the Plant De-
partment), offers the use of the 704
without charge to University stu-
dents in courses approved to use
the computer as a laboratory tool.

ew computing machine will be
r as a laboratory tool.
The facilities are also available to
graduate students and faculty en-
gaged in University-approved, u4-
sponsored research.
"The computing facility is also
available for sponsored research,"
Prof. Bartels continued, "and is
ready to assist other universities
in this area needing a high speed*
computer for educational and re-
search activities."

In late fall, 1958, University of
Detroit students began mumbling
about the rock 'n roll records on
the Juke box in the Student Un-
ion Snack Bar.
In a, Student Council meeting,
it was suggested that a comprom-
ise be reached by having silent
records made and installed in the
juke box. "Anti-R&R's could then
choose silence," a student point-
ed out. "Music haters, too."
Too Quiet
Juke box enthusiasts feared that
while silence is golden, it's too
quiet, and students wanted to
make sure they were getting their
dime's worth.
A compromise to the comprom-
ise was arrived at: one two-sided
silent record plus one two-sided
record with a beep every fifteen
seconds.
The titles were "Silence to Chit
Chat By" and "Silence for Deep
Conversation" with beeps; "Quiet
for Study" by the Aristotle Four
and "Arthur Godfrey Plays His
Stringless Uke" without beeps.
Organize 'Hush' Label
University of Detroit silent rec-
ord promoters Mike McCann
(president of the Student Coun-
cil) and Rod Shearer organized
the Hush Record label and the
Hush Golden (Stereophonic) la-
bel.
Life magazine published a story
on March 9, 1959 showing pilot
record albums that included "The
Silent Chimes," "Shhh," "The
University of Detroit Chorus Not
Singing" and "The Best of Hush."
Comments on the silent record
trend were collected by New York
Post interviewers. Exulted one in-
terviewee, "It's the best retalia-

tory move against rock 'n roll ever
devised."
Another remarked, ". . . the in-
tellectual's revenge against rock
'n roll."
Chase's Calendar of Events an-
nounced that the 1960 calendar
would proclaim the first seven
days after New Year's Eve-.a fine
bit of timing -- as "University of
Detroit Silent Record Week."
McCann and Shearer have since
been graduated from the Univer-
sity of Detroit. Pat Oliver, present
Student Council president, takes
over as president of Hush label;
John Grubbs, a political science
major, is the artist and repertory
director.
He says he has extensive plans
for making silent recordings of
speeches politicians. never should
have delivered.
"Wp," he predicts, "will make
a fortune."
Alma .Building
Dedication Set
Dedication of the Grace A. and
Herbert H. Dow science building
at Alma College will be held at
11 a.m. Saturday, featuring an
address by Dr. John Grebe, Direc-
tor of Nuclear, and Basic Research
at the Dow Chemical Company.
The $1.5 million building was
erected with funds granted by the
Dow Foundation of Midland. Last
fall, after two years of planning,
ground was broken and construc-
tion was begun.
Designed by Lewis J. Sarvis, a
Battle Creek architect, the science
building has a 350-seat auditori-
um, 135-seat lecture room, plane-
tarium, five conference rooms, sci-
ence library, five biology labora-
tories, seven chemistry labora-
tories, and three mathematics
classrooms.
Each professor has a suite, in-
cluding classroom, laboratory, of-
flce and research laboratory.
Also included within the build-
ing are a greenhouse, animal
room, research laboratories for
advanced students of science and
controlled temperature rooms and
two dark rooms.
