A Lot's in a Name
Say MSC and U of M
ents' ction .'
HE REGENTS of the University have per-
formed few official acts that have made
m appear quite as petty as the action
y took in objecting to a proposed change
the name of Michigan State College.
mingly only jealousy led the MSC ad-
.istration to request the name change,
I similar motivation led the Board of Re-
ts to attack the proposal, which has vir-
fly no chance of passing the State Legis-
ure this year or in the near future.
n spite of (or perhaps because of) the
try quality of the entire matter, the Board'
Regents took the unprecedented step of
ding a press conference ,(the first since,
sident Hatcher took office) so they could
eal their opinion of Michigan State "Uni-
the Regents of the University bent way
r to pick up the news of the MSC pro-
al; now perhaps they can return to an
ight position and consider matters of
ne significance to the academic commun-
he Wrong Tack.. ,
7HY ALL the fuss about Michigan State?
MSC's proposal to be called a University
stirred up a great deal of opposition,.
stly from those who believe that the simi-
ity between the proposed name and that
this school would cause confusion.
This is very true; but students at both
hools will testify that confusion already
:sts. Especially non-resident Michigan
,dents frequently have to assert to the
Iks back home that it is not their team
iat is the national football power at pres-
3ut an argument directed solely against
ling to existing confusion seems hardly
portant enough in the debate. Michigan
Ate, known for a long time merely as a.
llege of Agriculture and Science, has come
>ng way in a relatively short time. Not too
little of this has come as a result of such men
as Biggie Munn and his awesome Spartans.
However, along with the increasing enroll-
ment have come other changes, including
the addition of many departments that stray
from the agriculture field.
N4ow, with about 14,000 resident students
and a widely varying curriculum it would
seem that MSC is in every sense and require-
The conflict is not new. Whether we like
to admit it or not, it is the competition we
don't like. But the competition, which could
be a good thing for both schools, has taken
The University of Michigan has been
the only State University in Michigan, but
its prominence and fame hasn't been due
to that. The University has earned its rec-
ognition where schools should, through
accomplishments in the academic field,
through its faculty, alumni and students,
and through its valuable developments in
research. This is where schools count, and
it doesn't matter if the name that gets the
credit is the University of America or Hog-
Students on campus today didn't flip a
coin to decide whether to come here, or if
they did, they're not the ones Michigan
wants anyway. If the difference between this
school and the College in East Lansing is
merely in name, there is a need for immedi-
ate action. And the action needed is riot to
fight MSC's proposal for a 'U' in place of a
C,' but continually to build Michigan to a
place, of prominence, not state-wise but. na-
However the difference isn't in name only,
and the need is not to build Michigan but to
hold itin its place of national prominence.
Fighting over the addition of 'University' to
State's name doesn't help our reputation, no
matter how confusing the result would be.
Michigan State by any other name
would still be Michigan State. Well, who
Less time spent fighting State's 'Universi-
ty' name and building ours would have a
more beneficial effect.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second in a series
of articles on the foreign student written by
Eddy Lachman, a graduate student in journal-
ism from Amsterdam.)
By EDDY LACHMAN
"PERFECT organization but little human
touch. Professional workers in the field
of international goodwill and do-gooders
who invite foreigners once or twice because
they feel it is their duty cannot replace na-
tural human contacts over a longer period
of time." This is how one foreign student
summed up for us his criticism of the Ameri-
can exchange program for foreign students.
If one wants to find out how effectively
America's money is being spent in the
foreign students' programs, the Institute
of International Education in New York is
the place to go. The Institute is a travel
agency, a board of examiners for graduate
students, a forum of news exchange be-
tween 128 lands, a psychological advice
clinic, a bank and an information service
all wrapped in one. Of the 34,000 foreign
students in the United States, 4,000 are or-
ganized by the 32-year-old Institute be-
cause many private and public foundations
offering scholarships for foreigners found
it profitable to have one agency coordinat-
ing their programs. Thus, at a cost of
about one million dollars a year the I.I.E.
works for foundations like the American
Association of University Women, the Ford
and Carnegie foundations, Rotary clubs,
the State Department and the Army.
C. Hall, who is one of the organizers at
the Institute, told us: "We are a sort of buf-
fer between the universities, the students and
for example, the State Department. The peo-
ple in Washington are chiefly interested
in the political implications of the pro-
gram; the universities and many of the
students are more interested in the academ-
Sc side. He agrees that most of the foreigners
who come to America are already pro-Amer-
ican. "But," he says, "the foreigner still
thinks that the Americans are braggarts (he
is told at every university that it is the best
of the U.S. if not of the world); he is irritat-
ed by the American's wealth and by what
he perceives to be the inability of Americans
to appreciate a foreign culture." The foreign
student who comes to this country usually
has a wealth of erroneous ideas about this
country. Hall further emphasizes a fact that
is not generally known. For many foreigners
acceptance of the invitation to come overseas
represents a considerable sacrifice. Some give
up their jobs to come here; others are mar-
ried and most leave their families at home
for one or two years; many do not get cred-
it for the courses taken at American univer-
sities because of the difference in education-
al systems. "But in the long run, the capital
investment of time, which the foreigner
makes by coming to this country, will bear
fruit" says Hall.
Some of the varied activities of the Insti-
tute are: selection of applicants from for-
eign countries; placement of students at
American universities; liaison work with the
Committee on Friendly Relations among
Foreign Students, so that each arrival is
met by an American student as soon his
ship pulls into the harbor; supervision of the
summer camps, where every year 700 stu-
dents get an introductory course to the U.S.
The Institute further arranges invitations
and trips to private homes during the holi-
days; it encourages many Americans to take
notice of foreign students; it publishes a
monthly for the students; it, in short, acts
as a super father for those who want one.
But do they want one? Most of the foreign
students who come here are graduate stu-
dents already highly specialized. As we have
seen in the preceding article, they are gen-
erally "sociable fellows." Most of them have
been active in social and some in interna-
tional work at their home universities. Now,
during the introductory courses, much em-
phasis is placed on the good will created
through this association of foreigners with
foreigners. The students are not very inter-
ested in that sort of thing.
Remy Gerard Marchant from France,
who does cancer research at Harvard,
gripes: "Yes, the organization is .perfect.
The material aspects have been covered.
Of course, that is what is generally noted
about America. But what about the hu-
man aspects? I am sick of being asked to
all sorts of parties and get-togethers where
nothing is exchanged but the bare for-
malities. Some of the families I visited
were do-gooders only, and were not real-
ly interested in the persons who came to
their house. Also how can you get to know
a family if you are invited there with four
others from Finland, Pakistan, India and
China? I'd rather have a bit less organi-
zation and more genuine interest, more
warm human contacts."
The Institute has a valid defense. Mrs.
Minucci, who deals with the problems of
foreign students, and Mr. Hall both told me:
"We can do little more than organize. The
real work must be done at the grass roots
level. It must be done by the foreign stu-
dents' advisers at the universities, by the fac-
graduate to fill the position of assist-
ant to the plant engineer in the firm's

WASHINGTON - Buried in the dull and
prosaic files of the Federal Communica-
tions Commission is an interesting story of
how wires can be pulled in Washington - in
this case by powerful GOP publishers. If the
FCC record had been made two days before,
it's possible that Senator McCarthy's man on
the FCC, Robert E. Lee, might: not have

In this case, the Washington lobbyist for
the Cowles brothers, publishers of Look
magazine, the Des Moines Register and
Tribune and the Minneapolis Star-Jour-
nal, tried to buy off a rivaYapplicant for
a TV station. Simultaneously he was warn-
ed that he didp't have a chance because
of Eisenhower's friendship for the Cowles
"The Cowles have done a lot for Ike,"
James Milloy, Vice-President of the Cowles
,publications, was quoted as saying, accord-
ing tq the official FCC record. "The Cowles.

to the White House and is going back to
Minneapolis to try to persuade Doctor
Charlie Mayo to run against Humphrey.

sion (the FCC) recently," boasted the
Cowles. vice-president. "A new commission-
er, Mr. Lee, is now on the Commission. Lar-
ry Fly (former FCC chairman, now attorney
for the rival Des Moines applicant), has an
ideology that. is no longer applicable. Fly
thinks things are the same now as they were
a few years ago, but things have changed.
The old philosophy doesn't hold.
"You know that Mike Cowles is about to
leave on a Point 4 trip for Ike in the Middle
East. All this stuff about Ike being pure is
all right, but you know that when you are
in the Army, you learn politics," continued
the testimony given in the FCC record.
"You don't get to go from a lieutenant to
a colonel and then to President without
knowing about politics. Ike won't let the
Cowles get hurt. He won't let them lose out
on TV in Des Moines. I know how the wheels
turn in Washington, and you don't have one
chance in ten."
THE MAN to whom lobbyist Jim Milloy
gave this warning was Kingsley H. Mur-
phy, Jr., 23-year-old head of the Murphy
Broadcasting Company in Des Moines.
Murphy's father had once owned the Minne-
apolis Tribune but was forced to sell out to
the Cowles brothers, who now have a mo-
from that policy, are now applying for TV
channel 8 in Des Moines, with young Mur-
phy, whose family they bought out in
Minneapolis, also applying for the same'
Milloy, the Cowles vice-president, who ad-
monished Murphy that he didn'tI have a
chance, is the same operator who arranged
with the Eisenhower Administration to ap-
point Fleur Cowles, wife of Mike Cowles, edi-
tor of Look, as special ambassador to Queen
Elizabeth's coronation. Shortly thereafter,
a feature story, building up Vice-President
Nixon, appeared in Look.
,* . * ,
- STUBBORN YOUNG MAN --
DURING THE FCC hearings for channel 8
in Des Moines, young Murphy obviously
made the better showing. In the middle of
the hearings, he got a phone message from
Milloy at his hotel asking to see him, and
later Milloy took him aside for a long talk
in which he offered Murphy around $150,000
if he would withdraw his application leaving
the field)clear to Cowles.
Milloy held out various inducements,
such as the glamor of living in New York
and working for Look, plus the prospects
of advancement in the Cowles organiza-
"I used to live in New York and don't par-
ticularly like it," young Murphy replied. "I
prefer Des Moines."
"Some of the executives at the top of the
Cowles organization are getting old," Milloy
argued. "Luther Hill (editor of the Des
Moines Register) is 65. There are opportu-
nities at the top."
"We have worked hard on TV," young
Murphy replied, "we intend to run a good
TV station in Des Moines and your propos-
al of $150,000 to get out is only a pay-off
which I don't approve of."
"But there are terrific opportunities in
Des Moines," argued Milloy. "And it's im-
portant for Luther Hill to get a young crew
to take over from the older men." 4
Milloy went on to talk about a merger,
in which the Murphy interests would own
about 12 per cent or even 15 per cent of
the TV station. Young Murphy replied that
if there was going to be a merger, the
Cowles brothers would have to take the
15 per cent.
Milloy didn't like this at all.
"The Cowles," he said, "have too much at
stake to take a minority interest, though a
management contract might be worked out."
Finally, when the Cowles lobbyist was able
to get nowhere he threw out his veiled threat
that the Federal Communications Commis-
sion had changed, was now subject to pres-
sure, and that Ike, who understood politics,
would never let the Cowles brothers "lose out
