Faculty Shortage
Faces U.S. Colleges
Conference Advocates Greater Use Of
Small Liberal Arts Schools-Keniston.
The University and other educational institutions throughout the coun-
try are faced with the critical and difficult problem of acquiring adequate
teaching staffs to keep pace with increased enrollments, Dean Hayward
Keniston, of the literary college, declared yesterday.
Dean Keniston, who represented the University at the conference of the
Association of American Colleges in Cleveland, summed up the faculty prob-
lem as follows:
Because of wartime depletion of graduate schools, there is no back-
log of graduate students who would be eligible as instructors;

Briggs Gives
Plan To Fight
Housing- Need
Building Boom Will
Not Solve Problem
Answering Mayor William E.
Brown Jr.'s question, "How long is
temporary?" concerning the Univer-
sity's new temporary housing units,
Vice-president Robert P. Briggs said
yesterday that present plans call for
demolishing the structures in the
summer of 1948.
sriggs and Brown appeared in a
broadcast with Mrs. George Ross of
the Veterans Counseling Service,
speaking on "sousing in Ann Arbor"
at 1:15 p.m. yesterday over WAG.
Brown said that the city alone
needs 2,000 housing units, to make up
for the low rate of, building during
the 1930's while the city population
increased almost 100%, to 37,000
today. Only 87 houses were built in
the past four years. He predicted a
building boom during next summer,
but said it would not be big enough
to fill the need. Briggs set the Uni-
versity enrollment next iall at 15,000,
half of which would be veterans.
Students and wives of faculty
members were encouraged to take
part in the volunteer survey of extra
housing space in the city. The sur-
vey now has 100 volunteers, needs
150 more. Those interested should
contact Miss Bader 223 E. Ann St.,
phone 26551, at the CDVO office.
City residents who are in doubt as
to the legality of converting extra
space into apartment were encour-
aged to contact the city engineers'
office, which will inspect their homes
and give them required information.

Sponsored by the FEPC sub-com-
mittee of the Committee for Liberal
Action's national and international
affairs group, in cooperation with
seven campus organizations, the cam-
paign was designed to put pressure on
Congress which reconvened Monday.
Telegrams urging the immediate pas-
sage of the Fair Employment Prac-
tices Commission legislation were sent
to 'Senator Alben Barkley by these
groups last month.
Approxiilately 225 individually
written letters, commending Mr. Tru-
man on his support of FEPC legis-
lation in his address to the nation,
were sent to the President, while 435
post cards were mailed to Rep. Joseph
E. Martin and Sen. Alben Barkley,
House and Senate leaders, respective-
ly. Of the form letters sent to mem-
bers of Congress, 420 were addressed
to representatives from Illinois, In-
diana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri,
Ohio, Oklahoma and Tennessee, who
have not signed the discharge peti-
tion to release the House bill from
the Rules Committee. Letters to sen-
ators from Alabama, Louisiana and
Mississippi, in addition to the above
states, totaled 230.

Present graduate students who
are Teaching Fellows cannot carry
a heavy teaching load because of
the great amount of time required
for regular studies.
Dean Keniston said he agreed with
the Cleveland conference's view that
greater use should be made of small
liberal arts colleges.
The conference reported that vet-
erans are crowding into about 100
large, well-known universities and
are shunning the small colleges-.
Dean Keniston said he believes
that many veterans will attend ol-
lege for only two years. Therefore,
junior colleges can help meet the
demand for veteran education.
The conference recommended that
a central clearing house be set up to
advise veterans of existing vacan-
cies in educational institutions
throughout the country.
Dean Keniston pointed out that
the small colleges have an even
greater problem in increasing their
faculties, because they have no
graduate schools for training.
"But the fact remains," he said,
"that the large universities cannot
handle all the veterans."
The government must provide
more housing and classroom space,
he declared, because "it is useless
to offer free education to the vet-
eran unless colleges and universi-
ties are given adequate facilities."
Dean Keniston noted the tendency
of many veterans who formerly at-
tended small colleges to seek admis-
sion to larger, more expensive insti-
tutions. He reported that many pri-
vately endowed universities are not
accepting transfer students, thus
throwing a greater burden on the
state universities which have more
liberal admission policies.
Expressing the hope that the
University will not attempt to. ac-
commodate too large an enroll-
ment, Dean Keniston said, "we
must meet the present emergency
with emergency measures, but we
must not lose sight of long-range
academic standards.".
On the general problems of higher
eduation, Dean Keniston said that
education must be used to promote
international understanding.
On the continuing problems of
teachers, he said that "unless fi-
nancial returns for teachers are in-
creased, qualified students will go
into industry or other fields."
On the problems of curricula, Dean
Keniston noted at the Cleveland
conference "a universal tendency to-
ward a more rigorously defined un-
dergraduate curriculum." He also
noted two approaches to general edu-
cation: (1) through a common body
of knowledge and (2) through com-
mon intellectual experience, or com-
mon discipline, in the sciences and
