S ee Can.cer
As U nrelated
T'o Pollution
Air pollution does not seem to
cause lung cancer, the University
Institute of Industrial Health has
Prof. Seward Miller, director of
the Institute, reported "There is
as yet no substantial research evi-
dence that breathing polluted air
in our communities causes lung
Although studies have identified
one substance in motor vehicle
exhausts which produces skin can-
cer in mice, high concentrations of
the substance have not produced
lung cancer even over extended
periods of exposure.
In a series of radio broadcasts
originating in station KYW, pleve-
land, Prof. Miller, chairman of the
industrial health department in
the School of Public Health, cited
two problems of air pollution.
An acute form has caused severe
illness and death in Denora and
The chronic form is experienced.
by many communities throughout
the year.
"We may never experience an-
other episode of acute community
air pollution serious enough to
cause severe illness and death,"
Prof. Miller said.
"Today out concern centers on
the adverse effects of breathing
slightly polluted air over a long
period of years."

Group To Discuss Community College

Does Washtenaw County need a
community college?
This is the question that mem-
bers of the Education Committee
of the Ann Arbor Chamber of
Commerce will try to determine in
talks with business and industrial
leaders in the county area this
"We have undertaken the sup-,
port of this project because we'
believe that such a community col-
lege would provide new and practi-
cal educational and cultural op-.
portunities for this area," William
Bott, Chamber of Commerce Sec-
retary and member of the educa-,
tion committee explained.j
"The philosophy and objectives
behind such a college are com-
pletely separate and distinct from
those of a four-year college, a,
junior college, or university.
Not Tied to 'U'
"Therefore, such an institution
would be completely .unaffluiated
with the University," Bott contin-
ued. "Few citizens fully realize
these differences or are aware of
the possibilities that such an insti-
tution would offer this area."
The community college offers
four types of. educational. pro-
1) The transfer credit program.
Under this plan a student is ablej
to take two years of work parallel-
.ing that of a four-year college or
Frequently students attend such
a local.college while being gain-
fully employed. In this respect the
community college serves much the
same function as a junior college.
2) Occupational, vocational, or
technical education. With the new
skills demanded by technological
advances in in'dustry, business and
government, the number of un-
skilled jobs is fast declining.
Vocational Training
The training .necessary to oper-
ate, install, repair and sell modern
technical equipment requires more
than high school vocational train-'
ing, but it can be had in less than'
four years and does not require a;
college degree.
By offering instruction in these
fields the community college is dis-
tinct from the junior college,
which is designated by law to offer
only college level work.
3) Higher general education.
Such a program would provide an
opportunity for advanced formal
training in such subjects as social
sciences; literature, home econom-
ics, speech or 'drama on a non-
matriculated basis.
'Spare Tife' Concept
This would enable those persons
to round out their formal educa-



or acquire a vocation during
spare time.

4) Community service. Being in
close contact with the community,
such a college would offer particu-
lar service programs especially
geared to the needs of the .area.
Thus, the college would interest
individuals for whom certain serv-
ices beside formal education hold
"A college emphasizing a tech-
nical-vocational program conveni-
ently located to service the Wash-
tenaw County area seems to be
the most desirable plan at this
point," Bott said,
Studying Financial Support
Another member of the Cham-
ber of Commerce Committee, Prof.
Raymond Young of the education
school, is making a more detailed
study concerning the financial
support of a community college in
this area.
"With technological advances
and automation since World War
II, there has been a definite trend
toward the community college on
both the national and local scenes
in the past 15 years," Prof. Young
There are now 16 community
colleges throughout Michigan with
an enrollment of 28,254 students,
and at least five more are in the
planning stage.
"Part of their popularity can be
attributed to the comparative ease
of financing and distribution of
operating costs," he added.. "Ac-
cording to figures from the 1959
edition of the Junior College-Di-
rectory, the median operating cost
per equated full-time student per
year is $556 in Michigan."
Cost Split
Only one-third of the cost of
this program would be financed by
the state, with the remaining two-
thirds being divided equally be-
tween student tuition rates and
the sponsors of the college, which
may be the local Board of Educa-
tion, or a combination of school
The fundamental edifice and
equipment is paid primarily by the
sponsors with nominal state assist-
"Existing school facilities are us-
ually utilized while such a college
is developing, and it need begin
with little more than its own
library," Prof. Young noted. .
"Although we are surrounded by
a tremendous University, we
strongly feel that there is a place
for a community college in this
area," Bott said.

lege, established in the shadow
of Michigan State University, has
