Students Relax in Modern Club 600,

Illinois President Says
'Respect Freedom Limits'

MONDAY 12:00 Noon to 8:30 - Tuesday through Saturday 9:00 to 5:30

When a student living in South
Quad becomes wearied with the
tediousness of study and books1
each night, his first impulse is to
call some friend and "go down to
Club 600 for a quick cup of coffee
and a snack."
For, to the South Quad stud-
ents and many residents from
other quads Club 600 is one of the
most popular snack bars on cam-
pus, offering a convenient place
to relax and possibly meet one of
his old friends.

IN ADDITION it is the most
probable place that a student will
take his date after seeing a movie
or" attending a weekend dance.
The facilities and design of
the Club enable it to take care
of the several hundred custom-
ers it has each night. It ex-
tends the length of the building,
Is furnished with modern fix-
tures, and has its snack bar
located off to the side.
At one end is the ever-playing
jukebox and at the other end is
the television set which is per-
petually observed, giving students
two sources of entertainment.

WHEN THE World Series, a
championship boxing match or an
out-of-town Michigan game is
being televised the area around
the TV set will be jam-packed and
there will be periodic reactions
from the crowd when a thrilling
play is seen.
However, there are some com-
plaints in respect to the tele-
vision set. One is the common
lament that it is "too much of a
distraction from studies." Ano-
-ther complaint is that students
are irritated with the 17" screen
on the set which is supposed to
take care of the quad's 1204 re-
These problems and many
others are handled by the club's
U Consumer
Survey Aids
Michigan merchants will be able
to imfprove their services as a re-
sult of community surveys now be-
ing conducted by the. University
Bureau of Business Research.
Made at the request of business
communities of the state, the Bet-
ter Service Survey is designed to
find the average likes and dis-
like of the Michigan consumer, ac-
cording to William J. Carey, pro-
ject head. In the last two years
26 cities have been studied, rang-
ing from Frankenmuth to Flint.

THE TWO-PAGE questionnaire,
distributed through the local
school systems, is tailor-made to
fit each city. Through it, local
snerchants can find the weak
points in their service to custom-
The questionnaire begins by
listing major commodities and
asking what is bought locally
and reasons for making pur-
chases elsewhere. Continuing,
the survey asks for the partici-
pants' views on local advertis-
ing, quality of merchandise and
attitudes of salespeople.
lost consistant complaint is
that prices are too high, with bet-
ter variety and quality of mer-
chandise given as reasons for
shopping out of town.
TWO MONTHS are usually re-
quired for the completion of one

of the surveys, with personal re-'
ports made by a Bureau staff
member. Questionnaires have
brought positive results, with
problems brought to light that the
average store owner and commun-
ity couldn't obtain.
The surveys are advantageous
over "man on the street" and tele-
phone types because of the high
return possible and the 'elimina-
tion of the personal interview, ac-
cording to Carey. He pointed out
that 85 percent of the families in
a town can be covered.
The vast majority of the famil-
ies. are satisfied with the living
conditions in their respective com-
munities, according to the surveys.

Dean Sawyer
Tells Needs
Of Education
"There are more needs for col-
lege graduates in specialized fields
than the colleges themselves can
offer," said Dean Ralph A. Saw-
yer of the Rackham School of
{Graduate Studies, speaking be-
fore the College Teachers Associa-
tion yesterday.
As part of the fall meeting of
the Association, he noted that
there is a large drop in the pursuit
of individual education from those
high school students going on to
college. "Our country is in the
midst of great technological ad-
vances that are increasing at a
geometric ratio, while our stand-
ard of living has also increased be-
cause of. the free enterprise sys-
tem created through these techno-
logical advances," he remarked.
* * *
THE SYSTEM and the advances
have been made possible only by
the large number of people in
specialized fields, he pointed out.
Therefore, the labor force's de-
mand on the population is not as
great as in other countries, al-
lowing a. greater number of people
to attend college during their edu-
cational period in life, he observ-
Dean Sawyer has been work-
ing on a commission studying
the educational system. The
comparison has found that there
is not a labor surplus in the
natural science field, while the
number of school teachers is
below the demand. Many teach-
ers receive their teaching cer-
tificates, he pointed out, but
move into another field where
the pay is better.
"If we can't meet the demand of
teachers, who should go to col-
lege?" he asked. Ex-President
Truman's Commission on Higher
Education, estimated that half'
these eligible should attend col-
lege. Dean Sawyer and his com-
mission estimated that only one
quarter of those eligible should at-
tend college.
He advocated . a careful study
by both students and institutions'
of each other when choosing a col-
lege, for below average students{
would do poorly at a highly spec-
ialized school and the school would
not benefit by their presence. By+
careful study in both phases, the
University has had less than a
5% failure of the entering fresh-
man at graduation.
