CLAIMS PARTIAL VICTORY:
Teaching Fellow Balks at Parking Rules
* * * *

Engineers

I

By HARRY REED
'khe revolt of a part time teach-
inn fellow was claimed as a be-
lated victory over the University's
former parking system yesterday as
the new parking regulation en-
forcement took effect.
.Yesterday city policemen began
ticketing unauthorized cars in the
University's restricted parking lots.
Formerly the job of disciplining the
errant parkers was part of the
ch~ores of the office of Student Af-
fairs.
->THE REVOLT of this one teach-
er is an example of the way the
parking situation was handled for-
nerly. His battle came to a halt
recently as both he and the Univer-
sity claimed victory.
'He paid a $1 fine and received
his registration materials.,
The teaching fellow was un-
able to find a legal parking place
4)utside of the University lots
lab spring, and was denied' a
parkig permit because he was
only a part-time instructor. His
' teaching assignment was con-
veniently close to a restricted
narking lot, and in desperation
rhe began parking there.
yThis policy was only adopted af-
ter several fruitless mornings of
cruising the area and giving his
class an unintentional bolt.
SHE BEGAN collecting a stack
of notices under his windshield-
wiper, warning him not to park
there. These were followed by a
conciliatory attempt from the Of-
fice of Student Affairs in the form
of a note requesting an audience at
that office. He countered with a
similar note, and then received
notice that he would be fined $1.
The fine was to be doubled and
f edoubled for every day it re-
mained unpaid. On the heels of
this order, as he continued his
illegal parking, came a threat
that his driving permit would be
xevoked. He didn't have one to
revoke. .
esThe gutardians of the campus
parking space decided to hold up
his grades. He wasn't getting any
in, the advanced courses he was
taking. As a final measure he was
notified that he would not be al-
lowed to register until the accumu-
lated fine had been paid.
This was the crowning blow. He
saw the whole entanglement as a
personal struggle for the salvation
o; the real learning process against
the morass of administrative
twaddle. It was his firm belief that
teachers and students were the
essentials of learning, and that the
inistrators depended on these
togroups, and not vice versa.

Convention
EndsToday
Approximately 200 represnta-
tives of government, industry and
education will adjourn at noon to-
day after a three day convention
to iscuss major engineering re-
search problems of the var.
For the second consecutive year
the University Engineering Re-
search Institute is acting as hst
to engineering administrators at
the Firth Annual Conference on
Adminitiation of Research in the
Rackham Amphitheater.
YESTERDAY N. A. SieparJ
chemical director of the American
Cynamid Co of New York City
advocated the long range step o
getting more students interested in
science and engineering while they
are still in high school. He noted
the declining umber of engineer-
ing and science students in Ame i-
c'an universities.'
W. T. Bonney of the National
Advisory Committee for .ero-
nautics told the educators yes-
terday that a great need exists
for improved public relations to
correct public mis-information
and suspicion about science.
G. Edward Pendray of New York
City urged that industry start
talking more about peacetime ap-
plications of the research now be-
ing done for the nation's defense.
"There is a mounting feeling that
science is working only for our
destruction," he said.,
TODAY'S concluding sessions
will include a discussion by Dean
Ralph A. Sawyer of the Graduate
School on "Advisory Boards and
Panels in the Defense Organiza-
tion."
The conference was opened
Monday when University President
HarlanHatcher warned the en-
gineers against any compartment-
ilization of educational institu-
tions into research and teaching
units. He stressed that the two
functions must be viewed as neces-
sary partners.
Monday night Dean George
Granger Brown of the engineering
college called for a three-fold pro-
gram of education, research and
service in modern engineering col-
leges.

-Thin Bluel
came a double victory. Prepared
for a battle over the multiplying
fine, he attempted to pick up his
registration materials. He found
his railroad ticket could be un-
hocked for the original fine of $1.
The University had still fined him,
but he had the satisfaction of re-
ducing it $27.
Questioned on whether he
planned to continue his illegal
parking in spite of the new
system, he replied that he was
still teaching in the same place,
and the parking lot is still just as
necessary and convenient.
The erring parker did not con-
sider his battle won, however. He
opined that the fight is bigger
than just parking, that it reflects
a good picture of the University
situation.
"Someday the administrators
are going to wake up and find the
faculty and students have crept
off to exercise the learning pro-
cess unhampered," he concluded,
