Prof. Flower To Give Lecture-Recital

'Less Clear'
The second area of responsi-
bility, Lewis continued, is "less
clearly defined,"
"It's the responsibility for
creating a laboratory within
which the students have some
opportunity to apply the knowl-
edge they acquire. I believe part
of the total educational ex-
perience lies outside the class-
room. In fact, I would like even
to think that in many areas
students are applying what they
learn from their books.
"At any rate, the knowledge
gained from books doesn't al-
ways change behavior. We must
give the ppportunity to develop
more citizenship and more lead-
ership. Students can read about
this in their textbooks, but this
is how they get some practice
at it."
Just how much leadership
the student should be allowed
to practice is one of the chief
problems with which Lewis
must deal.
"Decision making," he said,
"should involve all three seg-
ments of the University com-
munity-students, faculty and
administration. But the ques-
tion of how much power should
go to anyone is a serious one.
"We're trying to give the stu-
dents a chance to make more
real decisions, not play ones.
Put them into real situations
where they are not protected by
"I've pushed things to SGC,
wanting to burst this myth that
SGC isn't important."

Lewis is "firmly convinced"
that students ought to have
more and more responsibility.
"But it seems that I've obvi-
ated everything I've stood for
just because of this one issue,"
he said, returning again to the
Sigma Kappa affair.
"We just had to contain the
Council, however. We have to
have a government by law, not
by men.'
Much of the disagreement
had centered around the power
to withdraw recognition. from
campus organizations. "My in-
terpretation," Lewis said, "is
that the administration should
Change Unclarities
"You can argue on this," he
continued, "so therefore the
thing to do is change the char-
ter. Somehow you must resolve
the conflict. When you're con-
vinced you must have a policy
somewhere, you turn to the
book. And if the book isn't clear
you change it."
Regardless of the question of
how much power should be
given student groups, Lewis
does feel that student govern-
ment here "is more responsible,
and has more authority than in
most universities."
. The same is generally true of
other student groups on the
Michigan campus, he said.
But then there's that con-
tinual "search for power,"
which seems to mean an eternal
series of conflicts.
"That's the thing of it, all
right," Lewis nodded. He is a
former football player, which
may be good.
He can take knocks.

hann Sebastian Bach's Well-Tem-
