Faculty Group
Set for Appeals
To Conduct Dismissal, Demotion
Cases Arising from May Hearings
Operating within the new Regents' rulings on cases involving
dismissal or demotion of faculty members the ,University Senate Ad-
T visory Committee has set up a five-man stand-by group to hear such
cases it was learned yesterday.
Called the Subcommittee on Intellectual Freedom and Integrity,{
the group has met with University Vice-President and Dean of Facul-
ties Marvin L. Niehuss to discuss its function in the event that loyalty
charges leveled against University personnel at the May hearings of
the House Un-American Activities Committee give rise to action for

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond in a series of articles about the
problems created by expanding en-
rollment and how the University
plans to meet them.)
Not with a shotgun, but with a
That, according to Assistant
Dean of Faculties Robert L. Wil-
liams, is how the University is go-
ing after the problem of planning
for expanded enrollment.
"We don't have students 'en-
rolled in the University,' " Dean
Williams points out-"they're en-
rolled in separate schools." So
President Harlan H. Hatcher has
asked each school dean to send
along a memo on the future health
of his own school.
* * *
IN OTHER words, the "rifle"
technique means that each school
tries to figure out how many stu-
dents it could take care of with
how much additional expense and
with what effect on the education-
al process.
For instance, here's how one
dean, Dean E. Blythe Stason of
the Law School, viewed his
school's future in a letter to
Vice-President and Dean of
Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss re-
First, Dean Stason said, it would
be wrong "economically and oth-
erwise," to consider establish-
ing another state-supported Law
School in Michigan. The dean cit-
ed the tremendous capital invest-
ment and painstakingly built li-
brary facilities as wasteful, if not
impossible, to duplicate.

Creation of the subcommittee
did not require University Presi-
dent Harlan H. Hatcher's approval
since provision for it had been
made in the by-laws.

Augustus P. (Gus) Stager, present
oach at Dearborn Fordson high
chool, has been named to fill the
hoes of retiring Matt Mann II as
Michigan's swimming coach.
At the same time Bruce Harlan,,
ormer Ohio State, NCAA, NAAU,
and Olympic diving champion and
resently coaching Sequoia high
school in Redwood, California, was
appointed diving coach.
* * *
THE appointments were well
eceived by Michigan swimmers
since the two men are both ex-
remely popular and respected.,
The appointment of Stager
may have been a strong determi-
nant in whether or not the
Wardrop twins will remain at
Michigan. It has been rumored
that the two Scottish stars have
shown interest in Yale and
might have already applied.
Stager's appointment may do a
lot to keep the boys here. They
think very highly of the new
mentor and are looking forward
to working with him.
Harlan's appointment may have
onger-ranged ramifications. In
recent years Ohio State has ob-

According to Prof. Campbell I
the committee has been set up
to hear appeals of faculty men7
against whom dismissal action
is proposed.
The Senate Advisory Commit- 1
tee, itself a 17 man body, is con-r
sidered too large a group to handle
cases of ths type unless specifi-
cally requested to do so.
Under changes made in Regent's
by-laws last fall regarding cases of
demotion or dismissal initiated at
the University level "the President
is now authorized to direct that
one hearing be held either before
the Senate Advisory Committee
or a special committee of five
made up of Senate members."
* * *.
IT IS THIS latter body, appoint-
ed by the Advisory Commntec,
which has been designated a:
stand-by group to provide the fac-
ulty man a hearing.
To date no requests for hear-
ings have been made, Prof.
Campbell said.

last fall to expedite dismissal cases
