Students Get
Group Seats
Balzhiser, Voss
Named to Posts
Student representation was ex-
tended to an important new field
yesterday with appointment by
the Regents of Virginia Voss, '54,
and Dick Balzhiser, '54E, to the
University Development Council
Board of Directors.

Associate Sports Editor
One-platoon football, with all of its innovations and uncertain-
ties, arrives in Ann Arbor today, but its appearance is only secondary
to the spectacle and excitement surrounding the season's opener with
the University of Washington.
Michigan opens its 74th grid campaign against a brand new op-
ponent, the Huskies drawing a spot on the Wolverine grid schedule
as part of the Pacific Coast Conference-Big Ten program of inter-
sectional clashes.

The two students, who will serve
until June 30, 1954, were nomin-
ated unanimously to the Regents
by the student members of the
Student Affairs Committee.
* * *
AT THE TIME they made the
nominations, five of the seven
student members submitted a re-
commendation to the Regents ex-
pressing pleasure that students
were being seated on the Council,
but suggesting that hereafter such
nominations be made by the Stu-,
dent Legislature.

The recommendation pointed
out that SL presently makes a
number of similar appoint-
ments, while SAC generally does
not handle these matters.
However, the Regents never
considered this recommendation
since only the nominations were
able to be placed on President
Harlan H. Hatcher's "urgent"
agenda, University public rela-
tions director Arthur L. Brandon
said last night.
In addition, Brandon said the
Development Council committee
A. on organization andi plans had
delegated the nominating power
to SAC student members because
they felt it was the logical group
to handle nominations under ex-
isting Regents' by-laws.
SL is not now recognized un-
der these by-laws.
The five student members en-
dorsing the recommendation pre-
sented it because they felt they
could not assume the nominating
power in this case without ex-
pressing their conviction that this
function be placed with SL.
THE TWO student appointees
bring a record of high scholarship
and long participation in student
activities to the Council.
Miss Voss, an English honors
student, is Editorial Director of
,t The Daily and a member of
Mortarboard, senior women's
honorary society.
Though known best perhaps as
a varsity football player, Balzhiser
has compiled an almost straight
"A" record in engineering school
and is an Angell Scholar.
Last spring he was one ofI
two students named by President
Hatcher to the Honors Convoca-
tion Committee, and is a member

French Ask

Deputy Foreign Minister Maur-

SCHUMANN said hints had ap-
peared that the two outside pow-
ers which "inspire and arm the
Vietminh rebels" in Indochina
were disposed to consider the
opening of negotiations to end
that conflict.
Referring to Communist China
and 'the Soviet Union, Schu-
mann said the time had come
for those two powers to prove

no intention of dealing with the

china but would negotiate at dip-

Russia for a settlement.
Officials in Washington said
they would have no objection to
Indochina talks provided the
Reds agree to a satisfactory
Korean settlement.
Commenting privately on Schu-
mann's proposal, these authorities
recalled that Dulles had made it
clear at a news conference Sept. 3
that he opposed discussing Indo-
china at the Korean peace parley.

ASKED YESTERDAY whether a previously-conceived plan to
create a vice-president in charge of student affairs is still under con-
sideration, University President T
Harlan ,H. Hatcher commented,
"we have done nothing on it."

President Hatcher had indi-
cated in meetings with student
leaders last spring that a plan
to create a University vice-pres-
idency to handle student affairs
was being discussed.
President Hatcher declined to
comment on whether the idea was
still under consideration.
Dean Walter will fill the posi-
tion vacated by Frank E. Robbins,
September 9, who will now begin
his retirement furlough.
Commenting on his new as-
sistant's appointment, President
Hatcher said Dean Walter's dut-
ies will be somewhat similar to
those of his predecessor, with
Robbins continuing as editor of
the Michigan Alumnus Quarter-
ly Review and director of the
University Press.
In his new post Dean Walter
will serve largely as a policy ad-
viser and will handle the admin-
istration's high-level correspond-
Dean Rea, President Hatcher
said, will retain his duties as dean
of men in addition to those of his
new post.
No change in the present ar-
rangement is contemplated at this
time, President Hatcher comment-
ed. -
The new presidential assistant,
a native of Zanesville, Ohio, join-
ed the University faculty as an in-
structor in rhetoric in 1919 after
receiving his bachelor degree here.
Beginning in 1934 when he serv-
ed as acting-assistant to the dean
of the literary college, Dean Walt-
er became increasingly active in
administrative affairs.
Becoming assistant dean of the
literary college in 1938, and asso-
ciate dean in 1945, Dean Walter
was named director of the Office
of Student Affairs in 1947. In 1948
his title was changed to Dean of

Small Football Crowd Expected

The smallest opening day crowd since 1945, an expected .50,000
fans, will give King Football, 1953, a comparatively quiet welcome to
Ann Arbor today.
Student exhilaration for the opening game was high, however,
despite the attendance outlook, as 3,000 cheering Maize and Blue
fans followed the Marching Band ddwn State St. to Ferry Field
for a "Beat Washington" pep rally last night.
Football stars of '52, Bob Timm and Lowell Perry were on hand,
as were new Drum Major Floyd Zarbock, '54A, and baton twirler
Bill Modlin, '56, who awed the crowd with his flaming baton. Irv
Tobacman kept the crowd in good spirits as emcee.
AS STUDENTS trouped back to campus from Ferry Field, Ann
Arbor prepared for the opening game.
Police, bus and train lines, hotels and restaurants readied
for a small rush; but all reported a drop-off in activity from pre-
vious years. Thousands of good seats are still availabue for the
game, although the great bulk are in the corner sections.
