-David Giltrow


One day .just about a year
ago James A. Lewis swiveled
uncomfortably in his chair and
scratched the short hair on his
"I have a guilty conscience
about it all," he said glumly.
"People had told me the rules
were loose and potentially dan-
gerous. I should have tried to
clear it up.
"But -I thought that Student
Government Council might
straighten it out through their
evaluation committee, and I
also took a calculated riskthat
no collision would ever occur."
Conflict Erupts
The collision - between SGC
and the administration - had
just occurred.
The Board in Review of SGC
had reversed the Council's deci-
sion in the Sigma Kappa dis-
pute in which SGC had- found
the sorority guilty of national
discriminatory policies. The'
Board, and Lewis, had over-
Since then, Lewis has had
his problems. Ixi his difficult
position as vice-president for
student affairs, he is inevitably
caught in the occasional ten-
sion between the student body
and administration. The con-
flicts occur over many things,
from bicycle impounding to
Sigma Kappa.
In the Sigma Kappa incident,
a large number of students Were
critical of Lewis' judgement.
The tension was compounded
since many faculty members
agreed with the students..

The criticism has since
thinned, although it occasion-
ally breaks through. The most
recent outburst came last June
when a student representative
stormed out of the meeting at
which the new SGC Plan was
adopted. Some, though not all,
of his complaints were directed
at Lewis.
The new Council Plan is now
in operation. "It's a better plan
than the old one," Lewis said in
his office recently, ,because it
removes some of the ambiguities
of the old one, and provides a
clearer definition of responsi-
Power Search
Will there be more "colli-
sions '?
"Theire's this eternal search
for more power on the part of
the student that we'll have to
deal with," he answered. "Con-
flicts might come, probably over
SGC's areas of jurisdiction.
"But this isn't necessarily a'
bad thing, you know," he con-
tinued. "In a real sense, con-
flicts are healthy."
Lewis has - maintained this
philosophy since he took over
his present duties in 1954. Un-
til the recent establishment of
a vice-presidency for research,
Lewis' office for Student Affairs
was the newest of the higher
administrative posts.
Background in Education
At the time of his appoint-
ment, Lewis was lecturer in the
University education school and
director of the Bureau of School
Services. Previously he served
as teacher and principal in
various Michigan schools, at

Central Michigan University
and Purdue University, and
as superintendent of schools in
Dearborn, Mich.
The 55-year old vice-presi-
dent took his masters' work in
education at the University, and
received his doctoral degree at
Harvard in 1956. He is also a
professor of education here.
A post-war increase in en-
rollment necessitated creation
of Lewis' post. The University
has nearly 10,000 more students
today than during the war
"My job contains two dif-
ferent areas. The first is fairly
clea, the second more in-
tangible," he said.
Both are based on tie premise
that everything in the Univer-
sity should be measured against
what contribution it is making
to instruction, he said.
"The first function of the
nine agencies of our Office then
is to help relieve the responsi-
bilities of the 1? colleges and
schools. We view ourselves as
working for these 17, trying to
help them for example, by keep-
ing the students in better
health, better housing condi-
"In other words, we're not
ends but means, as we are able
to serve."
"We" refers to people in ad-
missions, registration, the Bu-
reau of School Services, the of-
fices of Dean of Men and Dean
of Women, the International
Center, and Lane Hall. These
are the offices taking direct care
of the student from the moment

Cut in Taxes
For 1961
New Budget Needs
Support of Congress
WASHINGTON (J)-The Eisen-'
hower administration is holding
out hope for a tax Cut in 1961 if
Congress will go along with the
President's new budget forecast-
ing a .$4,200,000,000 surplus.
It also was, learned yesterday
that President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's prediction of a 20-mil-'
lion-dollar surplus in the current

fiscal year is based principally on
expectations of a whopping drop
in farm aid spending.
Estimates of agricultural out-
lays have been reduced by $900
million since September - more
than enough to offset revenues
lost through the steel strike.
Official Comments
A high official, who declined to
be quoted by name, told a report-
er the administration likely would
favor broad tax reform legislation,
including reduction of basic rates,
at next year's congressional ses-
sion provided:
1) The $4 billion materializes
in the 1961 fiscal year that begins
July 1, 1960.
21 The surplus is used to reduce
the record national debt of $290
3) The economy continues to
expand and a recession is avoided.
President Eisenhower drew a
question mark around tax relief
in his State of the Union message
to Congress on Thursday. He said
tax cuts should be voted only aft-
er debt reduction becomes a nor-
mal practice.
Make Prediction
This could be interpreted as in-
dicating the President would want
to see several more years of bal-
anced budgets before tax relief is
While Eisenhower is leaving the
White House next January, it will
be his job to prepare the follow-
ing year's budget for his succes-
sor. He also will be expected to
submit a final series of legisla-
tive recommendations for the new
Congress convening in 1961.'
The present administration has
been working closely with the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee in a broadscale study of tax
reform, and the official who
spelled out current thinking said
a tax cut in 1961 is a distinct ps-

-Spending will total $78.4 bil-
lion in the 1960 fiscal year which
ends June 30. This is $500 million
less than the most recent oficial
estimate made last September.
Revenues will come to $78.6 billion'
or $400 million below the Septem-
ber calculation.

Secretary of State Christian
Herter and New York's Governor
Nelson Rockefeller were also in-
vited, but declined, according to
Prof. Hayes.
Since Herter will be at the sum-
mit" meeting in Paris during the
conference, Undersecretary of
State C. Douglas Dillon, formerly
Undersecretary . of Economic Af-
fairs, has been invited.
.The purpose of the conference
is to promote a better understand-
ing of United States' foreign pol-
icy and its program to aid under-
developed countries.
Progress made since the Act for
International Development, which
implemented the Point Four Pro-
gram in 1950, and implications for
the future of foreign aid will also
be discussed.
Seminars Scheduled
In addition to public addresses
from prominent American and
foreign speakers, a series of

ound-table discussions will also
be open to the public.
Since "a number of people in
the state of Michigan have very
active positions in the foreign aid
program," Prof. Hayes explained
that the University has asked
Wichigan State University and'
Wayne State University to co-
sponsor the conference. Various
national and state organizations'
may also join in sponsoring it, he

"In 1949 the question was sub-

as Farrell attempts to clear the puck. This was the case all week-

It was the Wolverines' fourth consecutive win, and eighth in ten
Once more the story of the game was in the brilliant combined
efforts of Wolverine goalie Jim Coyle and the defensive crew led by
Captain Bobbie Watt.
