Union President Robert Sibley, '42E,
has issued his statement of Union
policy representing the plans and
program of action for the Union dur-
ing the coming year.
"The Michigan Union is on the
campus for one purpose; to serve as
the center of activities for the men
of Michigan. The only way this
purpose can be fully realized is
through the active participation of
those members of the organization
in several phases of Union activity.
"The policy has been in the past,
and shall be in the present dedicated
to the maintenance of the Union as
a club for Michigan men. The Union

will endeavor to be of assistance to
the many organizations *on campus,
and encourage these organizations to
make use of the many facilirties
therein.
"The Union will endeavor to pre-
sent several informal meetings of
various sorts at which times phases
of campus life, political subjects, and
occupational information will, be sub-
jects of discussion.
"The traditions of the Union will
continue to be observed. The front

"As the Union is the club for Michi-
gan men, yoir as students of the Uni-
versity possess all rights of member-
ship upon formal registration at the
Union Student Offices.
"I urge every member to take ad-
vantage of the privileges offered him
and to use the Michigan Union as his
club, both while in college and as an'
,alumnus of the University."

Would Curtail
Instructorship
University Policies Group
Recommends Six Years
As Maximum Period1
Set Ruling Is Sought
Based upon the thesis that the
position of instructor at the Univer-
sity is purely a probationary one in
which the individual is given an op-
portunity to prove himself worthy of
advancement, a report recommending
,he limitation of the instructorship
period to a fixed maximum of ,six
years has been referred to President
Ruthven by the Advisory Board on
University Policies.
The specific proposals as set forth
in the board's report, covering the
entire field on the tenureship and
evaluation of instructors. Their put-
pcse is to provide the university with
a policy in dealing with the instruc-
torship problem which will be con-
sistent througout all the schools and
colleges.1
30 Year RecordS
It was found upon investigation
that this position on the faculty,
supposedly probationary in charac-
ter, had in reality occasionally ac-
quired a status approaching inde-
terminate tenure. One case was dis-
covered of a person remaining an
instructor for 30 years.
;Feeling that "indefinite retention
in the instructorship often produces
inequalities with unfortunate effects
on general morale" and that persons
so retained were prevented from "full
realization of their capacities," the
board recommended that "the overall
period'of service in the instructor-
ship of persons initially appointed to
this rank after the adoption of these
provisions shall not exceed six years."
It was also provided, however, that
for some special skill which was ap-
propriate to that rank a person might
be appointed a senior instructor at
the end 2f six years in a regular in-
structorship. Anyone in this status
is to enjoy indeterminate tenure but
will have no chance for advancement.
Appraisal Sought
The report urged,Stoo, that every
recommendation for promotion, re-
appointment or transfer to senior
status of an instructor shall be sup-
ported by an evaluation reprt. This
would include a record of his schol-I
astic and professional attainments,
an appraisal of his research and an
evaluation of his teaching ability.
The Advisory Board, which was
created last April, has as its mem-
bership Profs. Arthur W. Bromage,
John P. Dawson, Charles L. Jamison,
Clarence D. Thorpe and Chairman
William C. Hoad. Its report must be
considered and passed upon by the
Board of Regents before it becomes
effective._

cluding instruction in elementary di-
recting, theatre organization, the ele-
ments of musical production and the
history of the drama are some of

department also ties up some of its
courses with Play Production. A
course in playwriting and several in
the drama are given in this connec-
tion.
Productions Scarce #
Compare, then, the scarcity of the
productions of twenty years ago with
the thirty-five-odd plays presented in
the last academic year. Compare
the inadequacy of the facilities thenI
with the advantages now being en-
joyed by the classes. An example of
this tremendous improvement can be
noted in the case of the cycle of me-
dieval plays offered this summer.
For that production University funds
paid for the extra power lines that
had to be introduced into Hill Audi-
