GENT OF THE OLD SCHOOL:
Hatchers Call Butler 'Part of Home'
By MICHAEL BRAUN
Kenneth Brown is of the old
school; a gentleman, and accord-
ing to President and Mrs. Harlan
H. Hatcher "very much a part of
the President's home."
Brown, houseman at 815 South
University, quietly says in self
evaluation, "My happiness is in be-
ing thorough." The Hatchers' resi-
dence is mute testimony to this
It isn't in evidence to the cas-
ual visitor at an "open house" or
reception, but Brown's deft hand
adds as much to the attractiveness
of the home as those of painters
Carlos Lopez or Gerome Kamrow-
From basement playroom,
where, Brown says, the children
sometimes rollerskate, to the upper
guest room "where Mrs. Roosevelt
stayed" the house is immaculate.
Hesitates To Talk About Self
Brown, an extremely modest
man, is hesitant to talk about him-
self. He would rather discuss the
house of which he is extremely
When showing the library, he is
apt to pull out a book written by
President hatcher and ask if the
visitor has read it.
He is quick to point out the'view
from every window in the house
and particularly admires the gar-
den which his own bedroom win-
Only after a complete tour of
the house will Brown start talking
Arrives Via West Point
Brown was born in Leavenworth,
Kansas, 52 years ago and came to
Ann Arbor via West Point.
In Leavenworth he was butler
to Fred Harvey, scion of the Har-
A, vey restaurant chain. In 1943 Har-
vey died and Brown was recom-
mended as head waiter to the offi-
cials at the military academy.
He enjoyed the work but devel-
oped wanderlust and obtained a
job on the Santa Fe "Super Chief"
running between Kansas City and
His stepmother was living in
Ann Arbor and Brown decided to
visit her. That was in 1949. He has
been here ever since.
Finds College S'udents Mature
Houseman for Tau Delta Phi
fraternity was his first local job.
He became friendly with Bud Gut-
man, '49, who was the Tau Delt
house steward. He remarks that
it was Gutman "who taught me
that college students can be ma-
ture and understanding."
When President Hatcher took
office in 1951, Brown moved into
the rambling, white house as
houseman. The house and its

Israel's Economy Making
Rapid Progress, Pratt Says
Loyalty Oaths Required
Of All ROTC Students
Great economic progress and
population increases are now re-
vitalizing Israel, according to Sin-
cha Pratt, midwest representative
of the Israel government.
Speaking in connection with Is-
rael Independence Week at the
Hillel Foundation, Pratt explained
rapid strides are being made to-
ward complete economic independ-
ence in Israel. He noted that ag-
riculture has more than doubled
during the past seven years be-,
cause of irrigation development.
Arab Exodus Affects Agriculture
Agricultural revolution occurred
in 1948 when Arab farmers left
the country in protest against the
new state. As a result Israeli Jews
were forced to farm the land. De-
spite increased fruit and vegetable
production, Israel still must import
meat and wheat, Pratt said.
"Israel's democracy has good
and bad aspects," Pratt continued.
The country has free political in-
stitutions, he added.
Israel's neighbors are hostile,
Pratt said, because they fear the
effects of democracy on their feu-!
dal way of life.
Pratt remarked that Israel has
great industrial potential. "130,-
000 workers are employed in Is-
raeli factories now," he said. These
factories produce refrigerators, ra-
dios, and textiles.
Population Has Doubled
Population in Israel has been
doubled since 1948. "The integra-
tion of more than 800,000 refugee
Jews has exploded racial theories,"
Pratt said. In the past, it was be-
lieved that people from uncivilized
areas could not adjust to modern
"Experience with Israel has
proven to the contrary," Pratt de-
clared. These refugees quickly ad-
justed to modern society's de-
mands and became useful, pro-

All ROTC students are now re-
quired to take the same loyalty
oath under a new directive issued
by the Defense Department.
A recent Pentagon order states
that any student who refuses to
take the basic loyalty oath shall
be denied formal enrollment as an
Previous to this order, Army,
Navy and Air Force have called
for different requirements in com-
pleting loyalty procedures.
Applicants Must Sign
As well as being required to take
the loyalty oath, any applicant for
an advanced ROTC program must
sign a form declaring that he is
not a member of any one of a list
of organizations declared subver-
sive by the Attorney General.
Pentagon officials said the pro-
vision requiring signing of the
subversive list form only at the
time a student has otherwise qual-
ified for the senior division of
ROTC, permits land grant colleges
to continue their normal require-
ment that students should take at
least two years of military train-
National Students Association,
New York Region, recently called
for the abolishment of the non-
NSA said that the requirement,
prohibiting many students who are
members of one of the listed sub-
versive groups from attending
schools of their choices because
they could not participate in the
ROTC program, is mandatory in
land grant institutions.
Officials of all three University
ROTC detachments said that they
are now operating under the same
procedure that the recent Penta-
gon order directs and that it will
effect no change in their present
Attitude toward learning a lan-
guage is as important as memoriz-
ing vocabulary, John A. Swets of
the psychology department said
Fears concerning inability to
master foreign sounds and struc-
tures hinder the student, he added.
Preconceived notions about the
difficulty and strangeness of a
foreign language prevent a capa-
ble student from learning a for-
eign tongue easily, Swets contin-
According to Swets, it is a
harmful and untrue idea that
Americans are less able than oth-
ers to learn a new, language.
KENNETH BROWN . .. "My Happiness is in Being Thorough"

with Brown's biography,
If the observer should miss small
details of decoration Brown will
quickly point them out. Not many

His sense of neatness extends to
the symmetrical arrangement of
the articles on President Hatcher's
dresser. Nine pencils, 4 fountain
pens, 4 cigarette lighters and 2
rabbits feet were neatly arranged
like many tin soldiers.
If President Hatcher should ever
need an "efficiency expert" to keep
the University running smoothly,
he need look no further than un-
der his own roof.
