Professors Advocate African Studies


Prof. Crary noted that "as the
past half-century has witnessed
the exploitation of Africa's ma-
terial resources, the immediate
future will witness the exploitation
of the African mind."
Pointing out that public aware-
ness is essential to national pre-
paredness, Prof. Crary stressed
that "we should be very much
aware of the capacity of the land
to support people and of the
nature and availability of re-
sources which can contribute to
econimic independence and trade."
"We must likewise understand
the African's deep-seated manners
and customs, as well as his social
and political institutions. This is
essential for adequate understand-
ing," he explained.
Develop Courses
According to Prof. Crary, "A
contribution toward the accom-
plishment of these objectives is
the development of courses of in-
struction and avenues of research
along various lines specifically con-
cerned with Africa.
"There are already a number of
men at the University who have
had research experience in Africa
and who are teaching a few
courses in their respective disci-
plines," he noted.
He also noted that the Univer-
sity's library research resources
are gradually improving.
Prof. Bretton believes that an
effective program" of African
studies could be conducted through
close inter-departmental coopera-
He advocates a broad approach,
indicating that a degree taken in
one of the existing departments
with specialization in African
studies would be more practical
than a degree in- African studies
in general.

"Bedtime Story" and "Hello Out

be presented by the speech depart-
ment's laboratory playbill at 4:10
p.m. today in the Frieze iBuilding.
"Bedtime Story" tells the results
of a fling, a "social indiscretion"
when 'a shy bachelor, who has been
living a quiet' and respectable life
brings home a woman of "ques-
tionable reputation." The woman
creates a small riot instead of be-
ing furtive about the whole affair
and brings the righteous landlady
into the middle of things.

The Rackham grant exhibition
of 15 paintings and selected draw-
ings by Louis Travelli of the archi-
tecture and design college opened
yesterday in the University's Mu-
seum of Art galleries, Alumni
Memorial Hall. It will continue
through Jan. 31.
The exhibition is sponsored by.
the Rackham School of Graduate
Studies and the architecture and
design college.
One of a series, the exhibition is
designed to demonstrated the work
accomplished under research
grants awarded by the Rackham
graduate school to faculty mem-
bers in various branches of the
creative arts.
"The suspended color, the ar-
rested time, the unpredictable per-
spective, the tautness almost to
the breaking point - these Fare
some of the things I have been
concerned with," says Tavelli, who
has shown in several New York
galleries and in museums through-
out the country.
Conference ...
C. C. Trillingham, the superin-
tendent of schools of Los Angeles

Role of the Creative Arts in
American Education." About 1,500,
adults and 1,000 students are ex-

cerned with the development and
interplay of characters, plays three
very different people off against
one another in this situation.
"Hello Out There" is the story
of a wandering- gambler who has
been jailed for attempted rape. A
tender love story developes be-
tween him and Emily, a young girl
who takes care of the jail. "The
play revolves around the theme
of loneliness in two peoples lives
and how it draws them together,"
Hal Randleman, director of the
play, said.
This eighth laboratory playbill
of the 1959-60 season is the first
one to be presented in the re-
modeled arena theatre on the first
floor of the Frieze Building.
In this situation the acting and
directing are affected by the fact
that the audience is on four sides
rather than the conventional one
as in the "picture frame" stage.
To Discuss
Prof. Kenneth J. Arrow of Stan-
ford University will lecture on the
"Economics of Research" at 8 p.m.
today InRackham Amphitheatre.

When the United States Na-
tional Students Association formed
in 1947, one of its aims was "that
war should not come again." .
This was expressed positively in
the preamble to the constitution in
the object of "promotion of inter-
national understanding." To this
aim they became the student union
representing the United States,
They found that international
conferences and exchanges did not
touch enough students and that
"doing Europe" in the style of the
thirties was a failure, education-
Travel Available

travel available and educational

he says. Speaking pf the Univer-
sity specifically, liehuss sees its
unique contributions to the state
and to American education pri-
marily in the areas of research
and graduate study.
"Our responsibility is increasing
on the levels of upper class, grad-
uate and professional schools," he
Although Niehuss doesn't pre-
dict a severe reduction in the
number of undergraduates in Ann
Arbor, he points out that "our
contributions . in the first two
years are not as valuable as in the
last two years."
There will be a movement in
leading American schools toward
less and less emphasis on the first
two years, he says.
"Of course, we'll have worse
football teams -- unless they let
our graduate students play," he
says, smiling.
"I'm unhappy about over-em-
phasis on athletics and excessive
recruitment in American colleges,
but I think it will be driven out
in time.

football), "but I think it should

"Perhaps not," Niehuss will ad-
mit, "but it sort of interferes with
my area of interest."
Niehuss' area of interest is
clearly the academic climate of
the University.

then about 'the dying intellectual
atmosphere' at the University,"
he acknowledges. "But judging by
the people and plant we have now,
we seem to be doing all right."

guides in every country helped the
5,000 participants since 1948 un-
derstand the countries they visited.
Varied programs help each student
feel a part of the country in his
own way.
For 1960, ETI offers 14 different
tours to 1,000 students. Special
tours to see the Passion Play at
Oberammegau and to see the
Olympic games top the list of
summer opportunities. All tours
specialize in low-cost educational
programsfor American students.
In addition to the general Euro-
pean tours, ETI will offer tours
on festivals of music and art,
Israel, East-West (including Rus-
sia and Poland), teen tours Ber-
muda, and Red Carpet.
New Tour
New this year is a specialized
teacher tour and a program of
study tours. The study tour will
'consist of three or four weeks at
a university center, followed by
travel in the surrounding area,
accompanied by a professor.
The Continental Circle Tour for
teachers and graduate students is
especially oriented to European
educational life. The tour includes
Spain, Italy, France, and the
British Isles.
Prices vary with the tour and
the amount of luxury desired. The'
hobo and whirlwind tour are less
than $900, while the deluxe Red
Carpet program costs $1,695. Each
program allows a week of free
time for inde endent travel at the
end of the summer.
