tions. The absence of war would
entail major readjustments, the
Center believes.
Therefore, work will be carried
on to eliminate the inability to
visualize a world of permanent
Examine Conflict
Conflict will be examined on a
larger scale than the meaning of
war and peace. in the second
strategy. For instance, frustration
breeds aggression in both the in-
dividual and the state.
The Center will investigate
family, race, and industrial con-
flicts, as well as the struggle of
political parties.
In this area, the Center also
hopes to chart the incompatibility
of values in the United States and
the Soviet Union.
"Assuming that peace will rest
on accepted rules for internation-
al conduct and that such rules
will require some moral consensus,
scholars are faced with the prob-
lem of helping define what that
minimum of moral consensus is,"
the report on the Center's pro-
gram reads.
Study Future
"Politicometric" studies involve
prediction of the future of inter-
national relations - the accumu-
lation and analysis of information
to prevent international tension
and determine the consequences
of international transactions.
The Center is not neglecting its
own future when it makes provi-
sions for research training. Fel-
lowship funds may be awarded for
graduate work in those institu-
tions and departments where
there are scholars exploring
theoretical questions relevant to
conflict resolution.
Another means of training will
be through assistantships on re-
search projects.
Two Methods
The report concludes: "By these
two methods itis hoped that there
will emerge a new generation of
young scholars, devoted to studies
related to peace, passing from one
institution to another to develop
their skills, and constituting to-
gether an intellectual resource of
inestimable value to the security
of mankind."
Members of the central com-
mittee of the Center for Research
on Conflict Resolution include
Prof. Angell, chairman; Barth, ex-
ecutive secretary; Prof. Boulding;
Prof. Inis Claude of the political
science department; Hefner, Prof.
Daniel Katz, of the psychology
department; and Prof. Wesley
Maurer of the journalism depart-
The closed conferences to be
held Sunday, Monday, and Tues-
day in the Union will further the
work of integrating various fields
of the social sciences for the pre-
vention of global war. The Center,
described as the world's strong-
est group of men professionally
interested in this problem, is at
City Council
Hears Ideas
On Traffic
Solutions to two city traffic
problems were discussed at last
night's informal City Council ses-
Under consideration is a one-
block northward extension of
Thompson St. from E. Liberty to
E. Washington.
The extension seems necessary
in view of the proposed bank to
be built on the east side of the'
new block and the property of an-
other bank on the west. Traffic
congestion in the area would also
be reduced.
Approval of all city administra-
tors concerned with traffic has
been given, but additional discus-

sion, including talks with affected
property owners, is planned.
The city is also considering new-
measures to increase traffic safe-
ty in school zones.
State law prevents the city from
establishing a speed limit lower
than 25 mph, so a ban on passing
in school zones is now being con-
City Council action was prompt-
ed by complaints concerning sev-
eral spots at which children must
cross busy streets to get to school.
Some Council members said that
school crossing guards are doing
an excellent job, but need addi-
tional help.
Other proposed solutions were
use .of more stop signs at cross-
ings used by many children and a
study of the possibilities of divert-
ing traffic from routes which chil-
dren cross at the times when they
are crossing heavily.

The Interfraternity Council's
mass rush meeting which will be
held at 7:30 p.m. today in the
Union Ballroom will explain the
main features of the formal rush
Many rushees, Harold Mueller,
'61E, IFC rush chairman, said, are
not aware of all the aspects of
rushing. The meeting should be of
considerable help in this respect,
he continued.
For example, Mueller said,
many rushees do not know very
much about bidding - a formal
request for a man to join the fra-
ternity. He explained that a
rushee does not have to accept the

bid immediately or cease to rush
other houses.
To Tell Facts.
These and other facts will be
told the rushees at the mass meet-
ing by Jim Martens, '60BAd, IFC
president. He will also speak on
rushing procedures and what cri-
teria a rushee should set for the
house of his choice.
Mueller emphasized that the ex-
planatory speeches, in contrast
with other years, will be short and
that the highlight of the meeting
will follow.
At this time rushees and repre-
sentatives of all of the fraternities
will be able to get together. The

actives will be situated around the
wall of the ballroom with signs
designating their house.
Ask Questions
Rushees will be able to approach
them and ask questions at that
time. This will help rushees de-
cide what houses to rush, even be-
fore formal rush begins, Mueller
"It would be a shame if a rushee
did not take advantage of the
mass meeting, especially as it will
be quite brief - and quite infor-
mative," Mueller said.
Rushees can also sign up at the
mass meeting and get all their
equipment for formal rush which
begins Sunday, Mueller added.

OPEN HOUSES-Fraternity rush open houses will begin Sunday.
Any rushee who has signed up for formal rush is welcome at any
of the 43 houses. Howard Mueller, '60, IFC rush chairman, said
that rushees should seetas many houses as possible.

GROUP SING-Rushees are given the opportunity to learn fraternity customs and traditions at open
houses, and the smokers and dinners which follow. Singing has always been a part of fraternity life,
culminating in the IFC Sing competition.
U School Trains, Conducts Research

"To have an out-going person-
ality and to help others is more
important than physical prowess
or brain power for the youngster
who wants to win friends and in-
fluence his classmates."
This generalization is a conclu-
sion which has come from research
conducted at the University School
designed to help children with low
social power contribute more e-
fectively in the classroom.
Since September, 1955, the 'U'
school has been a single adminis-
trative unit combining what were
formerly the University High
School and the University Ele-
mentary School. Today the schools
function as an integral unit toward
the accomplishment of three major
1) To provide a center for, and
to conduct research and experi-
mentation in child development
and in education.
2) To provide a center for the
training of elementary and sec-
ondary school teachers, and
3) To provide state service.
Education Important
"Essential to anyone of these
functions is the maintenance of a
superior education program for the
students attending the school,"
Robert Fox, professor of education
and director of the 'U' school com-
"Under no conditions are either
of these three purposes permitted
to interfere with good instruction.
On the contrary, they normally
contribute immeasurably to the
quality of the program," he added.
The 'U' school is actually a
laboratory for the University's
School of Education. It is not
directly' responsible to the Ann
Arbor Board of Education, but only
to the Dean of the education school
and the Board of Regents.
One of its most interesting and
primary functions is its research

program in child development.
Under the direction of Prof. Byron
Hughes, the coordinator of re-
search in the 'U' school, and Prof.
Warren Ketcham, the coordinator
of psychological services in the
school, careful study of human
growth and behavior patterns is
continually emphasized and car-
ried out.
Basic records of physical and
mental growth have been in the
past and are presently being main-
tained on the students from their
early childhood period through
their late adolescence.
Purpose Given
The purpose of this 'Longitudi-
nal Human Development Research'
is to follow an individual through
as long a period of time as possible
with regard to his physical, emo-
tional, social, mental and academic
growth so that he may better un-
derstand himself, be better aided
by those who instruct him, and be
better understood in relation to the
personalities of .those around him.
An example of the research car-
ried on can be found in the field
of orthodontics. The 'U' School be-
lieves that teeth development goes
along with the rest of the child's
normal physical development.
Head X-rays
Along this same line, cephalo-
gram tests or head X-rays are

made each year, as well as X-rays
of the wrists of the students.
Large athletic program research
is also performed on the students
each year, which includes a com-
plete physical examination and a
measure of the student's strength

also kept track of through the use
of individual psychometric exami-
nations every two years and
through various aptitude andain-
telligence examinations such as bi-
eninial Stanford-Binet tests.
A file on each student is kept
during his period at the 'U' School
and such supplementary data as
behavior rating schedules and
journals are kept systematically by
the teacher throughout the{ school
Keep Records
In addition to the keeping of,
serial records on each student and
studying how each one progresses,
a major portion of the 'U' school's
research project involves the
studying of the differences in pro-
gress rates and patterns of pro-
gress and the differences in the
responses of a vast amount of dif-
ferent individuals.
Data are looked for to explain
the differences in the responses of
a number of children to the same
force, school for example, and why
these differences occur.
"The data collected on the stu-
dents during their pre - college
schooling is also beneficial in pre-
dicting the success or failure of a
particular student at the college
level," the professor noted.
