The H. O. 'Fritz' Crisler story,
expected to reach its climax yes-
terday had its conclusion post-
poned again, this time until next
For the past two weeks Criser
has been noncommittal on the of-
fer he has received to become
commissioner of the newly-formed
American Football League.
In Minneapolis for a testimon-
ial dinner given him by members
of his 1930-31 Minnesota football
team and for today's Michigan-
Minnesota game, Crisler stated, "I
am not making an announcement
"I wouldn't say anything away
from the home base (Ann Ar-
bor),'" he continued. "It's very in-
definite right now. Frankly, I
don't know when I'll have any-
thing to say."
However, a Detroit newspaper
reported that Crisler's acceptance
vlould be announced Tuesday or
Wednesday in New York at a
meeting of AFL officials. Crisler
does not intend to be present at
this meeting.
Meanwhile, University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher said after
yesterday's Board of R e g e n t s
meeting here that the Crisler situ-
ation had not been discussed in
any manner.
If Crisler does decide to leave
the University a new athletic di-
rector would be appointed by the
Regents acting on the recommen-
dation of the president.
In making a decision for this
recommendation the president is
free to seek advice from anyone
he chooses.
While in Minneapolis Crisler is
expected to meet with H. P. Skoag-
lund, insurance man, owner of the
Twin Cities franchise in the AFL
and one of the league's directors.

But this game marks another
in a series of recent attempts by
both teams to recover from two
of the, most disastrous tailspins in
respective histories.
Michigan's last Big Ten victory
came against these same Gophers
last season, .20-19. In their last 11
contests, the Wolverines have lost

Minnesota has appeared on the
credit side of the win ledger only
three times in its last 19 outings.
There are several other parallels'
between the two combatants.
Supporters of both contend that
records aren't the whole story,
that each is better than the rec-
ords indicate. This could very well
be true.

LEGAL LEADERS--Governor G. Mennen Williams (beneath microphone), law school officials and
famous judicial and, legal authorities participated at the University law school Centennial luncheon
Cite Law School Anniversary

Regents and administrators
maintained a gim optimism yes-
terday-in the face of rising threats
to the University's financial se-
President Harlan Hatcher ex-j
pressed hope that the Legislature
"is urgently working on a solution
to Michigan's tax problems."
President- Hatcher told the
Board of Regents that the state
Administrative Board had assured
the University its October payroll
will be met next week.
Borrowing Possible
When asked if further borrow-
ing from banks or tapping of stu-;
dent fees might be necessary to
pay salaries beyond October, the
president was uncertain.
"I don't know yet what this in-
dicates," he said, referring to the
supreme Court's decision to void
the use tax.
"There are too many unknowns
to make any statement at this
moment. The Court's ruling will
be felt later; there isn't much to
say now about the events of the
last 24 hours."
Fees Would Help
Use of student fees could prob-
ably get the University through
another month, Vice-President
and Dean of Faculties Marvin L.
Niehuss indicated:
"Another month, ad from
there, nobody knows," summar-
ized Regent Charles Kennedy.
President Hather emphasized
"it is not our position to criticize
or offer hard advice to the Legis-

criticism of Michigan State Uni-

who rapped state officials this
week for "balancing the state's

"We are in for chaos unless the
Legislature acts quickly to find a
new source of revenue," Hanhah
Williams Worried
Gov. G.. Mennen Williams, a
campus visitor yesterday, was op-
timistic about the future of the
University law school, but not
much else.
He said he would make no spe-
ciflc recommendations regarding a
tax program, and indicated he
would accept the final decision of
the Legislature.
Rep. George Wahr Sallade, (R-
Ann Arbor) also attending the law
school ceremonies, was disap-
pointed with the Governor's fail-
ure to make recommendations, but
said, "this doesn't excuse the
Legislature from their responsibil-
"I-don't think that any major
tax bill will be passed this year,"
Sallade said.
"But the state might get by by
adding a few more minor taxes
somewhere," he added.

National and international legal
authorities gathered at the Uni-
versity yesterday in a gesture of
esteem for the University Law
School, which is celebrating its
100th birthday this week.
The two - day centennial pro-
gram is intended to serve a double
purpose: as a means of bringing
together University Law School
alumni and as an institute to
examine various areas of legal
practice and education.
Today's events began at 9:30
a.m. in Rackham Lecture Hall
with a talk on "The Relation Be-
tween the National and State Gov-
ernments in our Federal System"'
by The Honorable John R. Brown,
United States circuit ajudge from
Houston, Texas.
Congress' Responsibility
Judge Brown asserted that. the
major responsibility for determin-
ing the future course of federal-
state relations lies in the hands of,
He told 400 alumni attending
the centnnial that Congress "will'
have a hand virtually free of judi-
cial restraint, in formulating and
stimulating federal policy through

state action, financed by federal
grants-in-aid or tax credits."
He concluded that Congress
must now impose upon itself the
same self-restraint which it and
its members have urged upon the
Sees Bright Future
Speaking on "The Prospect of
Liberty," a prominent New York
attorney told the opening session
of the meeting that prospects for
maintaining a high level of per-
sonal freedom in America over the
next century remain bright.
Ralph M. Carson, of the New
York Bar, affirmed that despite
the spread of "brutal and fero-
cious" tyrannies in recent years,
the past century has seen "by and
large a broadening of freedom" in
the world.
Governor G. Mennen Williams
delivered the luncheon address in
the Michigan Union. Ballroom.
His remarks were read by Law
School Dean E. Blythe Stason,
since Dethmers was hospitalized in
Lansing. early this week following
an appendectomy.
Both he and Williams will re-
ceive honorary doctor of law de-
grees from the University today,
together with ten others.
Emphasize Fundamentals
At the afternoon session, two
of the nation's top law school
deans declared that law schools
should place greater emphasis on
study of fundamentals and less on
the day-to-day details of deci-
sions. Their topic was, "Frontiers
in Legal Education."
Dean Erwin N. Griswold of Har-
vard University and Dean Edward

cago warned that as the American

Board Asks State
For $38 Million
Budget Allows for Enrollment Rise;
Salary Increases Get High Priority
The University Regents yesterday approved an operating
budget request which asks the state legislature for a higher
appropriation than ever before.
Acknowledging the gravity of the state's financial condi-
tion, the board still gave its nod to a figure of $38,694,993 to
cover general operating expenses at the University's Ann Ar-
bor campus and at the Flint and Dearborn branches.
University President Harlan Hatcher prefaced release of
the 1960-61 request by noting, half-smiling, "theoretically, at
least, the state has already made provision for the Univer-
sity's fiscal year 1959-60."
The request is $1,326,723 higher than was asked for the
fiscal year 1959-60. It allows for an enrollment increase of 500
to 1,000 students in the fall'

complex, continued overemphasis
on details may tend to make legal
education obsolete.

Lord Hartley Shawcross of Lon-
don, England spoke on "The Rule
of Law in World Affairs." Lawyers,
scientists and statesmen must work

But "the University will be in a
position to enr'oll that many more
students" only "if it receives the
appropriation requested," Presi-
dent Hatcher explained after the
An expected "increase in serv-
ices requested from all areas of
the state" also brought the total
up to its final high.
The request for the fiscal year
1960-61 carries forward shortages
created in 1958-59 when the
Legislature appropriated less than
in the previous year, although the.
University had grown larger- and
asked more funds.
Equipment Needed
Sharp reductions made then in
funds available for equipment,z
supplies, maintenance and relat-
ed areas have not been restored.-
Essentially, the latest request is
similar to the 1958-59 budget, ex-
cept for wage and salary increases
for staff and faculty members.
Slightly less than ten per cent1
over-all raises were effected last1
July immediately after the Uni-
versity received news of its ap-
propriation. .
Another salary and -wage in- l
crease heads the priority list in
the 1960-61 budget request. De-y
spite the July raises, faculty mem-
bers' real income has fallen be-,
hind the rest of the nation's in-
come earners. While'the civilian
labor force has an increase in real
income of 69 per cent since 1939,
the University faculty's real in-;
come has increased only about 19
per cent, the Regents noted.
Ask Salary Money
Increases of "roughly nine per
cent" are calculated, but these
would not be made "across the
board," President Hatcher said.
Second priority goes to, 126 ad-
ditional teachers who will be
needed to maintain acceptable
teacher-student ratios, along with+
some additional non-teaching
staff members and more non-sal-
ary funds for instructional sup-
plies, equipment and "related{
Third, funds for business and
plant operations including re-
placements created by obsolescence
and deferred maintenance (which
the Regents notedmhave been
.ieeded for some time).
Library Improvement
Fourth, more adequate support
was asked for the libraries,' faculty'
research, student services and the
University's public services.
In addition to the general funds
operating request, the Regents
also approved requests for six
"separate line items."
These included operating funds
of $935,000 for the Institute of
Science and Technology; $519,000
for research and services in hu-
man resources; $286,000 for the.
Institute of Labor and Industrial
Relations (a joint request withx
Wayne State University). .-
Also, $150,000 for Great Lakes
Research Institute; $2,472,549 for

During Year
University expenses totalled
$92,614,994 for the fiscal year end-
ing June 30, 1959.
The state of Michigan fAnanced
approximately one-third of the

These facts and other summaries
"in terms of dollars and cents"
were released to the Regents yes-
terday in the financial report of
the University for 1958-59.
Reflects Decrease
The report reflected a decrease
in state appropriations from the,
previous year, and an increase in
research grants. Greater research
activity was a major factor in an
increase in the University's total
expenditures - for the fiscal year
from $86,092,521 in 1957-58 to the
$92.6 million figure.
Of this, total, expenditures f or
general operations dropped from
$41,094,626 to, $40,607,583 while
research expenditures increased
from $21,067,223 to $26,000,224.
The increase in research pro-
duced an increase in the amount
spent for salaries, wages and em-
ployee benefits as well as for ma-
terials, supplies and travel. -
Loans Increase
The report also shows that funds
available for loans to students in-
creased over $500,000.
Reviewing the "difficult" year
1958-59, the financial report said:
"The financial problems of the
state of Michigan forced several
delays in the monthly payments by
the state to the 'University of
monies apprdpriated by the Legis-
"In consequence, it was neces-
sary twice for the University to
arrange_ short-term commercial
loans to meet faculty and staff
payrolls, and to delay payments to
vendors of goods and services."
"That the University came.
through this period with educa-
tional programs intact and with
relatively few losses of faculty
members to other employers is a
tribute to the loyalty of the staff
and to the general public under-
standing and sympathy for the
University's situation."

The University has joined five private schools in a program which
conducts $3.5 'million worth of classified defense research annually.
The Regents accepted an invitation to join the Institute for De-
tense Analysis yesterday. The Institute was established by a grant of
$500,000 from the Ford Foundation, and is now supported by Defense1
Department contracts let to mem-

ber -and other schools.
Defines Program
Defense analysis involves appli-
cation of. mathematics to prob-
lems of strategy and weapons per-
formance, Vice-President for Re-
search Ralph A. Sawyer ex-
plained. World War Two develop-
ments . in anti-submarine warfare
and patterns for bombing raids
are early examples of such ap-
plication, he said.
The University has been en-
gaged in defense analysis work for
some time at the secret Willow
Run Laboratories, Sawyer pointed
out, but membership in the Insti-
tute places the University in a
"distinguished position" with no
added cost or Pliability. .
