'U' Officials Battle
MSC Name Change

LOSING A LOBBY-But gaining some music practice rooms,
these workmen put the planks in place in the new construction.
Practice Studios To Be Built
From Music School Lobby

A lobby is disappearing.
As carpenters start hammering
and sawing lumber, the lobby of
the music school on Maynard
Street is being turned into 18
piano practice studios.
"We are building the studios,"
Dean Earl V. Moore of the music,
school said, "because it is the
most economical use of space,
personnel and physical plant."
Original Use
The lobby area originally was
used primarily as a lounge and for
registration. Surrounding the lob-
by are additional practice studios.
"Even with this additional con-
struction," Dean Moore said, "we
are not yet able to provide the as-
signed practice hours required for
a degree."
The present enrollment of 556

University foreign students, while
an Ann Arbor resident will speak

Ayub Khanzada, a Pakistanian

The third student speaker will

cal Engineering. Ramaswamy will
speak on the Hindoo faith.
J. N. Faily, a former Persian
instructor at the University, will
talk on the Baha'i World Faith.
The meeting will be held at 3:00
Sunday at the Louhelen Baha'i
School which is located south of
Davison, Michigan.

students requires 208 studios to
cover the three hours of assigned
work. The music school has only
91 studios, including the 18 pre-
sently under construction.
"We can only provide less than
two hours of practice time," Dean
Moore said, "but these new rooms
will add about 20 per cent to our
practice resources."
Students will still have to make
use of teacher's studios during the
day and other studios at night.
Regents' Appropriation
The Board of Regents appropri-
ated $18,000 for the studios, cover-
ing construction costs and the
price of upright pianos. Each pi-
ano costs approximately $500.
The -walls of the studios are
made of Transite and are fire-
proof. There will be some sound-
proofing in the studios. The rooms
are five feet seven inches by sev-
en feet.
Forced air ventilation and ex-
haust systems willbe utilized and
there will be no windows in the
studios. Construction began Wed-
nesday and is expected to be com-
pleted within two weeks.
"Outside the rooms there will be
a terrible confusion of sound,"
Dean Moore said, "due to the con-
glomeration of sounds from the
pianos and the air vents. But in-
side the rooms, the confusion of
sounds will be negligible, because
of the celotexceilings and the
The studios were built in the
Maynard Street building "with an
eye towards the future," Dean
Moore commented. After the North
Campus music is built some time
in the future, "These studios can
be used for additional services for
Literary College students. The
whole building would be turned
into a large practice building."

ing boards.
Hannah Argues
Later MSC President Hannah
responded "I don't get excited
about the point made that for the
first time you will establish two
universities in the state."
President Hannah said MSC
"had no desire to dilute the pres-
tige of the University, borrow any-
thing from it, or confuse any-
He asked the committee to ap-
prove the name change bill be-
cause "only until MSC becomes a
university in name, it is handi-
capped and its students, the sons
and daughters of the state, are
President Hatcher said the MSC
governing body already is asking
that its name be changed from
the State Board of Agriculture.
"Where will this stop?" he
asked. "There is more than meets
the eye in this smooth suggestion
that you just change one word.
"The other state colleges are just
waiting for you to do this."
President Hatcher offered three
alternatives to adoption of the
name change bill. He suggested
making the change by a constitu-
tional method, assigning a new
name to MSC or appointment of
a legislative interim committee to
work out names for all state insti-
Dean Stason Speaks
Dean E. Blythe Stason told the
committee there were two serious
legal problems involved in the
name change.
Onelegal problem, he said, was
the "pattern" set up by the con-
stitution for state education in-
stitutions. The other, he claimed,
was the fact that if these two
were private corporations an "ac-
tion for infringement" would be
Dean Stason offered to prepare
a legal brief on the two problems
Tours Here*
Touring the United States to
"see other famous universities and
why they're. famous," Ross A.
Hohnen, registrar of the Austrian
National University in Canberra
remarked here recently that he
has been impressed by the efficien-
cy of American students.
Specifically, Hohnen is making
a study of the administrative set-
up of various universities through-
out the country.
He described the Australian Na-
tional University ws "of a pecul-
iar character" in that it is devoted
wholly to research and the train-
ing of a limited number of re-
search workers, accommodating
only 80 doctorate candidates.
"I've been moving so fast I
haven't sorted out my impres-
sions," he said of his tours through
other American universities. How-
ever, he felt that ,although uni-
versity administrations may seem
different, basically they have the
same problems.

involved should the committee de-
sire one.
In direct rebuttal to Dean Sta-
son, MSC attorney Leland W. Carr
said he assumed Dean Stason was
"inferring" litigation would be
started by the University if the
bill were passed.
Sen. Haskell L. Nichols (R-
Jackson) rebuked Carr for his
statement and asked Carr to
apologize to Dean Stason for that
comment. Carr apologized imme-
The young MSC attorney con-
tinued by saying there was no con-
stitutional ban on the Legislature
changing college names and that
therefore it was free to do so.
To bring action for infringe-
ment, he said "deceit" has to be
shown. He argued there was no
deceit involved in this case.
Possible Court Appeal
After the hearings were over,
however Dean Stason told report-
ers there would be "very definite
grounds" for a State Supreme
Court appeal if the Legislature
changes MSC's name.
"It's a question of policy as to
'whether we would appeal," he
said. "But we could well do go if

Tuesday, Senate Judiciary Chair-
man Harry F. Hittle (R-Lansing)
Another committee m e m b e r
said he doubted if the bill would
receive definite action in commit-
tee before Thursday.
Before yesterday's hearing be-
gan, however, it was reported that
five Judiciary Committee members
were in favor of changing MSC's
Repercussions in House
Repercussions of the name
change controversies continued in
the House of Representatives in
Lansing yesterday.
Debate on the Collins bill to
establish a senior college branch
of the University at Flint was put
over until Wednesday;
Rep. Richard C. VanDusen (R-
Detroit) requested the delay after
asking that the University pre-
sent an estimate of the cost of
the study which will establish the
senior Flint college. The Univer-
sity's original request for funds to
study the Flint branch was $37,-
"It seems like a lot of money to
me," Rep. VanDusen said.
Struck from the Collins bill
was the word "state" which re-
ferred to the University as the
"State University of Michigan."
The word "state" had been at-
tached to the bill in committee by
Rep. Harry J. Phillips (R-Port
Huron). Rep. John J. McCune (R-
East Lansing) said "state" would
further confuse the people. His
motion to strike the word was
carried 64-3.
The House of Representatives
also continued its, name-changing
venture yesterday by passing a
bill to delete "education" from the
names of Central Michigan Col-
lege of Education, Western Michi-
gan College of Education and

Hold Talks
The Sunday evening meetings
of the Unitarian Student Group
are controversial discussion groups
in which members talk about sub-
jects which vary from.the crisis
in the Near East to segregation
in Ann Arbor.
The small group, which consists
of about 25 members, plans talks,
discussions, and forums on impor-
tant social and political issues of
the day. Trends in religious
thought, problems of inter-cul-
tural and inter-faith understand-
ing are also topics of discussion
for the group. Often the students
invite speakers from the Univer-
sity faculty and the local commu-
nity to talk on a variety of topics.
"Although our organization pri-
marily aims to give students 4
chance to discuss current issues,
we also plan social activities,"
Carl Mailey, co-chairman of the
group said. He pointed out that
the group has planned play-read-
ing evenings and Hi-Fi listening
parties. "We even spent one eve-
ning reading Pogo," Carol Copp,
the co-chairman of the group said.
In addition, the group has a
monthly square or social dance
and in the spring and fall, outings
are planned.
In addition to the two co-chair-
men, Mary Wells is treasurer of
the organization. Bob Wilcox and
Nancy Sanford are in charge of
program planning for the group.
Dr. M. U. Tsao of the University
Hospital staff is faculty advisor.

School Board
Strains Aired
Neal Gross, Harvard sociolo-
gist, characterized the ideal school
board member as "an uncanny
King Solomon, who can do any-
thing quickly and inexpensively,
especially when he knows nothing
about it."
Speaking yesterday before the
Conference for School Board Mem-
bers, Gross discussed the strains
and tensions in the school board-
superintendent relationship. Lack
of job definition and conflicting
motivations were included as the
main reasons for tension.
School board members, school
officials and laymen attended the
conference which was sponsored
by the University Bureau of School
