University May Alter Curriculum


Faculty To
Discuss .Lit
Proposed changes in the curriculum
r of the literary college will be the sub-
ject of a special meeting of the col-
lege's faculty members' at 4:10 p.m.
The faculty will consider the re-
port of the Joint Committee on the
Curriculum, which has been study-
ing revision of the University's lib-
eral arts curriculum for over two
years, The Daily learned yesterday.
Harvard, Yale Plans
Unknown is the relation of the
committee's report to the educatonal
plans recently brought forward by
Harvard and Yale. The committee
may recommend changes similar to
those incorporated in the Harvard
and Yale plans or may submit entire-
ly different proposals.
The Harvard Plan, released last
June in the publication, "General
Education in a Free Society," recently
attracted wide attention. The pro-
duct of two years effort by a Harvard
faculty committee, it advanced the
theory that education "rather than
shutting itself off in cellules for the
particular use of specialists, should
fit students for common spheres of
interest which they must share with
others in a democratic world."
Basic Courses
The committee recommended that
Harvard inaugurate a system of basic
courses in humanities, social sciences
and natural sciences. The program
adopted by the Harvard faculty last
week. provides for not less than two
nor more than four "alternative"
basic general courses in each of
these areas.
A program similar to the commit-
tee's had been proposed by the Har-
vard Student Council in 1939-40.
The Harvard Plan will begin on
an optional basis in September, 1946,
and will continue in the experimental
stage "until teaching and curricular
methods have been so perfected as
to justify extending the system to
all students."
General Education Idea
Yale University announced recently
that it had adopted two plans em-
bodying the general education idea.
The Standard Plan has a requirement
entitled "relationships of learning,"
to be fulfilled by "broad courses which
will relate several fields of study in
terms of contemporary life in Amer-
In the Experimental Plan the
junior-senior curriculum is divided
into five major areas, in which studies
will be "carefully distributed between
courses in interpretation, concentra-
tion and relationships to other fields."
Yale students will have a choice of
these two plans beginning with the
fall term, 1946.
Also unknown is the relation of the
committee's report to the general
education plan which the University
of Chicago adopted in 1930. Chicago
divided its freshman-sophomore cur-
riculum into four areas-humanities
and social, physical and biological
sciences-in which instruction is giv-
en by no particular department.
Rae Warns Cyclists,
Walkers-Be Careful
Prosecutor John W. Rae issued a
special Nyarning to pedestrians and
bicyclists today as a result of six
fatal accidents that have occurred
here during the past three weeks.
"Bicyclists are charged with the
same responsibilities as a motor oper-
ator," Rae said. "In the event that
there is any question of criminal neg-
ligence in an accident, a warrant will

be issued and prosecution will ensue,"
he announced.

Wolverines Tire After Ha
Against Middie TAflacks
By BILL MULLENDORE, Daily Sports Editor
(Special to The Daily)
BALTIMORE, Md. Stadium, Nov. 10-Navy's long subdued steamroller finally unwound itself against a gal-
lant but badly outplayed Michigan eleven here today and the long-expected burst of Middie power resulted in a
crushing 33-7 victory.
There was no hint of the rumored squad dissension among the men of the Naval Academy as they took advan-
tage of almost every opportunity to cross the goal line five times.
The lighter and younger Wolverines managed to make a fight of it for the first half and went into the dressing
room at intermission behind only 13-7. But they tired badly in the second half and were no match for Navy's
explosive T attack and stonewall defense. U

Werntz Talks
To CPA Group
At Conference
Trends in Accounting
Is Topic Discussed
Pointing out that investors would
"unquestionably" find detailed infor-
mation, usually not listed on corpora-
tion income statements, "immeasur-
ably more useful than the aggregate
figures customarily given at present,"
William W. Werntz, chief account-
ant of the Securities and Exchange
Commission of Philadelphia, address-
ed the 20th Annual Michigan Ac-
counting Conference yesterday in the
Rackham Building.
In his talk on "Trends in Account-
ing," Mr. Werntz said that according
to a study made by the Commission's
staff, inconsistant accounting prac-
tices in making some charges or cred-
its directly to earned surplus suggests
the possibility that "the situation is
susceptible to abuse and may operate
to the detriment of investors."
The conference is sponsored joint-
ly by the Michigan Association of Cer-
tified Public Accountants and the
School of Business Administration.

community study of a Quebec village.
On the basis of this study, Prof.
Miner published "St. Denis, a French-
Canadian Parish," which, according
to Prof. Angell, is a landmark in the
newly developed field of comparative
sociology and a most important study
illustrating how the essentially primi-
tive and modern may emerge in a
single society. Prof. Miner also has
published magazine articles on this

Along a 30 mile front in Nagasaki
originally designated for the invasion
of Japan, Marines will gather today
to observe Armistice Day and to give
thanks that peaceful occupation
made battle unnecessary.

59,000 fans saw Coach Oscar Hagberg's white shirted lads score six
points in the first period, seven in the second, 14 in the third and seven in
the fourth to win going away. Michigan had an edge only in the second
quarter, when it scored its lone touchdown.
Breaks Play Big Part
Breaks, many of which were made by the hard-driving sons of the
Navy, played a large part in the game. A recovered fumble led to Navy's
first touchdown, and a short Michigan punt helped produce the second.
A blocked kick, a pass interception, and a fumble played key roles in all
the second half tallies.
Despite the lop-sidedness of the score, Michigan apparently was going
to make a game of it as the first half ended, losing two golden chances to
tie the score late in the second period. The second half, however was all
Navy, as Michigan made only one$

serious threat.
Statistically the Middies enjoyed a
wide edge with 15 first downs to 7
for the Wolverines. Michigan had a
slight edge in passing, but that was
more than made up by Navy's big
margin in rushing totals-235 yards
to 75. Total offense figures gave
Navy 310 yards to Michigan's 181.
Here's how it all happened.
Bob Nussbaumer brought back Jim
Carrington's opening kickoff from the
10 to the 40. Two line plays lost
three and a complete pass was just
short of a first down, forcing Michi-
gan to punt.
Navy Scores Early
On the first Middie play from
scrimmage, Tony Minisi skirted his
own left end from the 21 to the 37
for a first down, but Navy could not
sustain the drive and had to kick.
Starting on their own 20, the Wolver-
ines again could not gain and kicked
back to the Navy 46, the Middies
picking up 26 yards on the exchange
of punts. Michigan got that back
on the very next play as Walt Ten-
inga intercepted Bruce Smith's pass
on his own 15 and came back to mid-
The Wolverines managed to pick up
one first down on a pass and two
running plays, penetrating to the
Navy 40 before (All-American Bobby)
Jenkins intercepted Pete Elliott's pass
at the 38.
The Middies then began the drive
that led to their first score. With
Minisi doing most of the ball carrying,
Navy roared all the way to the Mich-
igan 31 before losing the ball on
On the next play, a Wolverine lat-
eral went awry and Navy Captain
Dick Duden pushed the ball out of
bounds. Minisi then passed to Leon
Bramlett, all alone along the side-
lines, for the score. Jack Currence's
kick was wide.
Another Michigan miscue gave
Navy its second touchdown shortly
after the second period opened. After
the Wolverines failed to gain follow-
ing the kickoff, Jack Weisenburger
sliced an eight-yard boot out of
bounds on the Michigan 31.
Scott Scores on Pass
Bruce Smith first passed to Capt.
Dick Duden to the 15 and then to
Clyde Scott for the score. Scott took
the touchdown heave on the 10 and
ran right through two Wolverines to
the goal. Currence, place kicker
extraordinary, converted this time,
making the score 13-0.
Michigan was not disheartened, ap-
parently, and came right back to
count its first tally. After an ex-
change of punts following the kickoff,
