Latest Deadline in the State INCREASING CLOUDINESS

Drops' ,eeebut Only in ew


You won't see 'MSC' in the State News no more!,
Michigan State's daily student publication, impatient with slow-
moving attempts to change the school's 'College' title to 'University,'
has decided to go ahead with the change-if only part way.
In a front page editorial yesterday, the News stated that since
Michigan State "deserves to be called a university since it is one in
every sense of the word," it will no longer refer to the school as MSC
or Michigan State College.
New Changes in Paper
Such changes as "State" for "MSC" in the headlines and "Daily
Student Publication" for "MSC Daily Student Publication" in the front
page name plate have been instituted.
The policy will remain, says the publication, until "we can offic-
ially use the title "University."
Called in East Lansing yesterday, State News Editor Jack Kole
told The Daily the policy move was made "simply because we don't
feel Michigan State is a 'college'."
Kole said he appreciated a proposal by University Regents that
a compromise be worked out, but he felt MSC students "wouldn't go
for the idea" of changing the 'Michigan State' part of the title along
with the designation 'College.'

The Regents, proposing a complete new title for the East Lan-
sing institution, have been charging the name 'MSU' would be too
similar to the University's name.
Wouldn't Add To Confusion
"There's already confusion now," Kole said. "I can't see that there
would be that much more."
Kole said that in "gaining employment an4 attracting people to
our graduate school, 'University' means so much more" than 'College,'
On the University campus, Director of University Relations Arthur
L. Brandon said yesterday that the Regents were responsible to
Gthe University, its name and prestige.
"The name, University' isn't important," he said, pointing to
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Cal Tech as two schools
which have achieved high ranking without it.
It's Not the Name
"It's not your name that's the important thing, it's what you do
with it," Brandon said. He added that the Regents would accept any
reasonable name change that MSC would come up with, "as long as
it doesn't conflict with ours."
The University Regents have agreed to a joint meeting with a

WHAT'S IN A NAME?-Michigan State News editors feel that
there's quite a bit attached to the question of a school title. A
front page editorial announced yesterday a new policy to omit the
word "College" from the name of the school within its col-

umns. Even the name plate of the paper was changed from
"MSC Daily Student Publication" to just "Daily Student Publi-

Haber Views
Wage Plan
'Union Proposals
Contain Dangers'
"I know of no collective bar-
gaining problen in American in-
dustry that has had a build-up
as large as the guaranteed wage
proposal," Prof. William Haber of
the economics department said
Speaking before an economics
group in the Rackham Bldg., Prof.
Haber listed the main features of
the proposal now being pushed in
the auto industry. There would
first be an assurance of employ-
met, he said.
Payment for Unemployment
In case employment is not pro-
vided, he continued, there would
be some provision for payment.
The payment would be offset by
the amount 'received under the
state unemployment insurance
The total amount of payment
'would bsubstantially higherthan
present unemployment benefits,
and the employers would have a
liability to be limited by a certain
reserve fund.
Prof. Haber said that the main
reasons for the interest in the un-
ion proposal at this time rest on
three factors. One is the great
weight given by the unions to
fringe benefits such as retirement
and health welfare funds.
Value 'Fringe Dollar'
"The fringe dollar," he said,
"appears to have more value than
a similar amount in the base
wage." In addition the union seeks
through this device to stabilize
r employment and if possible to im-
prove the state unemployment in-
surance legislation.
The idea of a guaranteed wage
has certain definite dangers.
. These, Prof. Haber identified as
1) The costs to employers are
difficult to determine and will,
under the best of circumstances,
:t be high.
2) The employers properly ques-
tion the sidea that the cost can be
limited as the unions propose. ]
3) Employers in declining in-j
dustries with inefficient produc-
tion cannot bear the added costs
of such a proposal.3
Possible Selective Hiring
4) A guaranteed wage might
create reluctance to hire and cause
employers to be more selective,
thereby creating employment
problems, ,
5) There is a serious question
as to whether it is wise to pro-
vide unemployment benefits which
?approach a high proportion of
normal wage. Incentives to hold
on to jobs and to seek work might
be harmed.<
Prof. Haber recgnized that is-
sues in the union's proposal arek
exceedingly complex and suggest-
ed that a joint study would be es-
sential before a workabe plan
could be adopted.

S eppearance
At a stormy meeting of the Ex-
ecutive Board of the campus
Young Democrat - Club yesterday,
the members passed a resolution
upholding the right of the Berlin
Philharmonic Orchestra to ap-
pear at the University.
"Believing in the liberal, demo-
cratic tradition of separating art
and politics," the resolution read,
the Executive Board "asserts the
right of the Berlin Philharmonic
to appear on campus March 15."
Free Expression
"Historically," the statement
continued, "liberalism has held to
the faith that a healthy society is
best secured when channels of ex-
pression are open to all."
The YD Executive Board then
censured the inconsistent stand of
the Labor Youth League on their
boycott of the Berlin Philharmon-
ic's concert. "Contrary to their
professed liberal assertions," the
statement read, "the Labor Youth
League has demanded that the
Berlin Philharmonic be banned
from Ann Arbor."
Zionists Differ
Publicity chairman Ralph Gold-
berg, '56, commented, "Although
we disagree with the Student Zi-
onist's stand, we respect their sin-
cerity in protesting. We find it
difficult, however, to justify the
Labor Youth League's statement
in relation to its professed regard
for liberty."
The YD's extended their con-
gratulations to the University for
"affirming the principle of the
separation of politics from art."

that it is particularly important to
have a lot more of it."
No Fixed Conclusion
It would be unwise, the Presi-
dent said, to attempt any fixed
conclusion as to whether Russia
might pull even with the West in
three or four years.
With heavy emphasis, Pres. Eis-
enhower said reports that an
American expedition to the Ant-
artic is seeking new proving
grounds for nuclear weapons are
"absolutely without foundation."
The expedition, he said, is for sci-
entific purposes in connection with
an international geophysical year
in 1957-58.
Chinese War
Chinese War-Pres. Eisenhower
said "the United States is not go-
ing to be a party to an aggressive
war." He said thatwas the best
answer he could make to a ques-
tion whether the United States has
given the Chinese Nationalists any
reason to expect American support
for an invasion of the Red China
Aid for Asia-A program of eco-
nomic aid for Asia will be sub-
mitted to Congress soon. He in-
dicated that delay has arisen from
changing conditions in the world,
and a need for studying them,
rather than from "a struggle"
among administration officials of
cabinet level."
Taxes-He said he was "highly
gratified" that the Senate Finance
Committee has rejected a $20 tax
cut for everybody Jan. 1. Demo-
crats pushed it through the House
over administration opposition.
Zionists To Meet
The Student Zionist Organiza-
tion will hold an open meeting
to discuss the appearance of the
Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
The meeting will take place at
8 p.m. today at the B'nai Brith
Hillel Foundation, 1429 Hill.
