According to a recent survey of
literary college counselors, all but
one counselor feels that the pre-
sent set-up is necessary.
The literary college counselors,
58 in number, for the most part,
indicated that "opportunity to help
the students work out their prob-
lems" was the most satisfactory
aspect of their job.
Other "satisfactory aspects" in-
cluded getting . acquainted with
students in a way which teaching
does not permit, a chance to be-
come aware of student problems,
and a chance to work with the
As for dissatisfaction, those list-
ed included working with the in-
different student, contacts with'
students are too few and far be-
tween, and not being able to solve
students' problems because of
lack of time and understanding.
A small group of counselors re-
gistered dissatisfaction abqut poor
counseling during registration,
when many students wait to have
their elections approved.
Better than half of the counsel-
ors indicated pro-con feelings
about their jobs. And the same

number reported they preferred
the present set-up of working with
a student for only two years.
For the most part, counselors
see their counselees rather infre-

upon allied services for aid in

In addition, about three-quar-

satisfied with the basic require-

One-third of the counselors felt

Another third thought that only

Suggestions for improvements
and additional facilities by the
counselors included orienting stu-
dents to existing counseling facil-

them and greater availability of
counselors and improvement of
the present services.

Each life member receives a
membership card, which also
serves as an identification card.
In addition, members get a sil-
ver tag with their number on it
which is for use as identification
for keys, or other persorfal belong-
ings. The Union's up-to-date ad-
dress file on all members enables
the cards and tags to be used to
insure return of lost items.
Every member also is given a
Union life membership button, the
only external identification that a
University student receives upon
graduation from Michigan.
The Union buttons are recog-
nized world over by graduates of
Michigan, and the Union gets
many requests from former mem-
bers to have buttons sent to them
for recognition purposes at reun-
ions, banquets, or other University
functions every year.
Life members are given special
favor in the reservation' of guest
rooms, and on football weekends
all rooms are reserved for life
members until the Monday pre-
ceding the game.
The Michigan Union is one of
the few Unions to offer a feature
of this sort. Life membership be-
gan here in 1920, but didn't become
automatic upon graduation until
1926. Until that time life member-
ships could be obtained only by

UINELCUO Gift Coupon rIan
Provides Needed Supplies
By SHIRLEY CROOG
With a goal of $25,000 for the
Gift Coupon Plan, the Michigan
Council for UNESCO is undertak-
ing its 1955 project.
UNESCO Gift Coupons is a
''money order" plan whereby
groups may send aid to schools,
libraries, and other educational,
scientific, and cultural institutions
for needed supplies in underdevel-
oped areas in the world.
Through the gift coupon plan,
UNESCO insures sending useful
items to needy areas. The donors
are relieved of packing and ship-

ber of the executive board, Michi-
gan is helping six specific areas
through the gift plan.
The money will aid the educa-

a community center in Israel, and
an emergency program in Korea.
Aid will also go to the Gold Coast,
Middle East, and India. Money
will be used to help set up li-
braries all over the world.
"One of the advantages of the
gift coupon plan, says Mrs. Arvid
Andresen, chairman of the gift
coupon committee in Michigan, "is
that it establishes direct contact
with the donating organization
and the recipients.

building was erected in 1881, engi-
