THE BIG PUSH:
Council Seeks Alumni Fund Increase
By MARY ANN THOMAS
The Big Push is on.
The University's young Develop-
ment Council is in the last lap of
its drive to increase alumni par-
ticipation in the new Michigan
In its second year of full-scale
operation, the Development Coun-
cil expects to top last year's total
of almost $110,000 from 6,652
alumni. As the June 30 deadline
approaches, present receipts have
almost equaled that figure.
However, William J. Connolly,
administrative assistant for the
Development Council, emphasized
the annual giving concept is fo-
cused on number of members,
rather than amount of contribu-
Membership Raise Expected
Membership during the current
year, he predicted, is expected to
exceed the initial appeal ended
With this aim in mind, Develop-
ment Council staff members are
mailing letters to alumni groups
and individual alumni throughout
the world asking for contributions
and informing them to what use
their money can be put.
Student volunteers from campus
activities lent a hand by folding
and mailing the letters. Nine stu-
dents started yesterday to reduce
the stacks of paper and envelopes
that crowded the desks and floor
of Development Council offices in
Alumni Memorial Hall.
Student Help Needed
The mailing will continue next
week. Students who would like to
help in their free time may con-
tact William J. Connolly at the
Development Council office in
Alumni Memorial Hall.
With more than 160,000 alumni,
the University has the largest ac-
tive alumni organization in the
world. Major. alumni associations
are located from Boston, Mass.,
to Tokyo, Japan, and from Taco-
ma, Wash., to Brazil.
Eugene L. Hartwig, '55, student
representative to the Council and
Managing Editor of The Daily,
commented if every alumnus con-
tributed just one dollar a year, the
University would have an excellent
sum of money for development.
Council Organized 1953
An autgrowth of the Phoenix
Memorial Project, the Develop-
ment Council was organized in
1953 to be a permanent group for
promoting and coordinating fund
programs and contributions to the
University from private sources.
The Michigan Alumni Fund is
a major means for raising private
donations for University use and
development. The basic purpose of
the Fund is to establish an annual
pattern of contribution from
alumni, to be used for an annual
Two University lectures on jour-
nalism are scheduled for this week.
Sigrid Arne, feature writer for
the Associated Press, will speak on
"The Rocky Road to Truth" at
3:00 p.m. Tuesday in Auditorium
B, Angell Hall.
Edward Lamb, of Toledo, will
deliver an address on "Freedom of
the Air" at 3 p.m. Wednesday in
Auditorium A, Angell Hall.
Admission to both lectures is

Such privately given financial
support is employed only for proj-
ects which cannot adequately be
supported through Legislative ap-
propriations or fee income.
Allocates to Needs
Prior to the Fund's initiation in
1953, a faculty and administration
group surveyed the needs of the
University on a long-range basis.
This far-reaching survey was used
as a guide for allocation of last
The 1953-54 Fund was distrib-
uted in six categories. $30,000 was
used for outstate student tuition
scholarships and grants-in-aid.
$15,000 went for research and
equipment and $4,033 went for the
President's Fund for worthwhile
and emergency services to the Uni-
Other allocations included $1,650
to the Alumni Association for im-
proved and additional services to
alumni and $24,298 for established
University funds specifically des-
ignated by the donors.
Bought Stellfeld Collection
Available undesignated funds of
$35,000 enabled the University to
purchase the Stellfeld collection
of musicology at Antwerp, Bel-
gium. The unique and valuable
collection is now an enhancing as-
set of the School of Music.
Objectives for this year's Fund
are aid to students, research, 11-
brary and museum acquisitions of
distinctive value, recognition of
faculty achievement, the Presi-
dent's Fund, lectureships and spe-
cial educational programs and
funds for unusual opportunities
that may develop during the year.

Hatcher Expects Great
North Campus Growth
take the shape of Fashion
By 1960, the University hopes tov
have increased enrollment by 5,000
and completed a 75-nillion-dollar
building program, according to
University President Harlan H.
President Hatcher explained
that North Campus was necessi-
tated by the lack of expansion
space on the main campus. Even-
tually, music, engineering and ar-
chitecture schools will be located
on the new site.
The year 1960 should bring an
expected sharp increase in enroll-
ment because thousands of "war
babies" will become of college age.
However, the University intends to
maintain its standards in selecting
faculty and students, President
The teacher shortage is expected
to be so acute by 1960, that Presi-
dent Hatcher anticipates salary in-
creases for most teachers. He be-
lieves, however, that "Michigan
will be able to attract its full share
of faculty" because the Universi-
ty's "high standing" makes teach-
ing here desirable.
Until 1960, expansion should not
create any serious problems for
the University. "There is probably
some point of expansion, 'X', be-
yond which we couldn't go without
subverting our purposes," he com-
"However, we can't say
what that point is," President
Hatcher said. "We'll wait until we
reach 1960 and then we can re-ap-
praise ourselves. The University, in
planning for expansion, hasn't said
arbitrarily how many students we
can take," he added.
No Campus Jumping
North Campus schools will hold
most of their classes in the same
building. "There won't be the sort
of thing where a student would
have a 9 o'clock here and a 10
o'clock on North Campus and then
have to rush back here for an 11
o'clock," President Hatcher said.
Four huildred apartment units
for married students are also be-
ing erected on the new campus.
The apartments, which were de-
signed according to student needs
as expressed in questionnaires, will
contain from one to three rooms.
Discussing the reasons for Uni-
vesity acquisition of Flint College,
President Hatcher queried, "In the
event that all students can't be
crowded into this campus, can't
we give them a Michigan educationj
The thing to bear in mind, he
said, is "the University of Michi-
gan is not just a geographical lo-
cation, but a kingdom of the mind
