Students Participate in City Meetings

Bare Boards To Be

Independent Women To Hold Worksi

"Interesting" was the all-en-
compassing word used by Ann
Arbor's junior city councilmen to
describe Ann Arbor's City Council
The junior councilmen were
chosen by the student councils of
their high schools to participate in
all Ann Arbor City Council meet-
The program was suggested by
Mayor Cecil 0. Creal to stimulate
student interest in the activities of
city government and to give regu-
lar Council members an insight
into the opinions of the city's
younger generation.
Impressed by Variety
"I was impressed by the effici-
ency of the Council and the variety
of topics on the agenda," said
John McClusky, University High
School's junior councilman.
"The scope of our student coun-
cil is much more limited," he con-
tinued. "The City Council is more
Sue Gaynor and ,Sue ,Brown,
University- High's alternate coun-.
cilmen, agreed with McClusky.
"And everyone knew what was
going on," they added. "They all
But McClusky pointed out that
some Councilmen naturally knew,
more than others about certain
topics, especially the activities and
attitudes of! people in their" own;
Sees Greater Capability +
'John Wernette, Ann Arbor High
School alternate, also believed that
some Councilmen were more cap-
able than others. "And not just
because of their party affiliations,"
he added. .
In fact, Frank Willis, juniorl

councilman from Ann Arbor High
School, remarked on how very few
political issues come before the
"Most of the things discussed
were minor issues that we are not
yet familiar with," he said.
Willis expressed surprise that
the junior councilmen were al-
lowed to participate in Council
"I'm interested in seeing how
our reactions are accepted by the
Council," he explained.

T "o Be Held,
Detroit's Sheraton-Cadillac Ho-
tel will be the scene for the fifth
annual Conference on Magnetism
and Magnetic Materials from Nov.
An estimated 1,000 scientists
and engineers from the United
States and foreign nations are ex-
Oected to attend the sessions.
Prof. Dale M. Grimes, of the
electrical engineering department,
is directing local arrangements
for the conference and will also
chair , a session on "Magnetic
Participants will discuss a wide
range of topics, including the re-
lationships between magnetism
and superconductivity (in which
metals become perfect , conduct-
ors),' the use of magnetic ma-
terials as memory units in com-

"We don't have to worry about
politics or re-election," he contin-
ued. "About the only thing we
represent is our school; and since
we're young we're pretty idealistic.
Our reactions to the more contro-
versial issues should point up who
on the Council is doing what for
political reasons."
"I'm afraid that ' the Council
members will think that what we
do in Council is under the influ-
ence of our families," Willis said.
"But this won't happen."
"Our votes will tend to be unani-
mous," said Mark Adams of Ann
Arbor High. "Not necessarily be-
cause of mere conformity but be-
cause we really do have many of
the same views. We have little
political prejudice and are not
subjected to pressures as are the
regular Council members," he ex-
Council Will Gain
"I 'think the Council will get
more from us than they think they
will," Adams continued. "If they
underestimate high school stu-
dents, they will be surprised'at the
amount of insight we have."
Adams went so far as to sug-
gest that instead of three non-
counting votes, the high schools be
given one vote that does count.
"This would give the Council. a
youthful influence which, at pres-
ent, it -lacks."
After attending two Council
meetings, the junior douncilmen
are already concerned with stimu-
lating public interest in the meet-
John Wernette said that it
should. be stressed to the people
of Ann Arbor that the Council
'meetings are public.
Have Superficial Knowledge
"Most people have only a super-
ficial knowledge of their city gov-
ernment," Adams agreed. "And the
more they see their councilman in
action, the more they will know
how to vote in the next election."
The junior council men have al-
ready fulfilled "Mayor Creal's hope
of increasing student interest in
city government.
John Gamache, junior council-
man from. St. Thomas High, said
several students have asked him
about' the- meetings he attended,
and a few even heard excerpts
from.the meetings on raido.



Assembly Association will spon-

All house officers, and Assembly
Dormitory Council representatives
have been invited to the annual
Fall Offiedr's Workshop, an .all-
morning event, and to a luncheon
afterwards in West Quadrangle.
The morning events will be di-
vided into two discussion times.
During the first half of. the al-
lotted time the individual officers
will meet with their counterparts
from other houses: house presi-

They will discuss their common
problems and common solutions,

for the second set of discussions.
The second time allotment is

reserved for four specific topics.
The groups will be divided up into
four discussion areas, each with a
recorder to take down all of the
The first topic will be "Counsel-

topic is to spread information
about the various kinds of coun-

as start discussion of counseling

To Discuss Etiquette
The second group will discuss
"Etiquette: Corridor to Campus."

Kreger, '61, first vice-president of

discussion of a different nature,
and was felt to be worth a topic.
