Dawson Says
Size Increase
Bad For U'
A doubling in the size of the
University - which, judging
from Michigan's population sta-
tistics is a distinct possibility -
would be "disastrous," Prof. John
Dawson of the law school said
last night.
He made the statement in a
speech following the annual ban-
quet meeting of the American As-
sociation of College Professors' lo-
cal chaptek.
Prof. Dawson pointed to the ad-
ministrative difficulties such an
institution would raise. Even more
vital, he went on, would be the
lack of the "kind of contact be-
tween student and teacher we
think of as the essence of edu-
"Even now," Prof. Dawson de-
clared, "we face this difficulty."
At the meeting, the chapter's
officers were also elected. Prof.
Clark Dickinson of the economics
department made the automatic
step up from vice-president to
president, while Prof. Dawson was
electe dthe new vice-president.
Prof. O. M. Pearl of the Greek
department was named secretary
and Prof. Charles Jamison of the
School of Business Administration
was picked as nominee for nation-
al representative on the Council
of the AAUP.

at dancing to folk music, has been
