Unanimous Vote
OK's Acquisition
Senate, House Ask Establishments
Of Three Year Transitional Board
By LEE MARKS
By a 28-0 vote the Senate yesterday passed a bill providing for
state acquisition and control of Wayne University.
Passage of the bill virtually assured establishment of a third
major state university in Michigan.
Wayne is now operated by the Detroit Board of Education.
The Senate bill differs slightly from a similar bill passed by the
House several weeks ago.

Senate bill rather than the appointive,
- board of eight called for in-the
House bill.
The Senate bill passed yester-
day now goes automatically to the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee where the conflict will have to
be resolved.
President Clarence B. Hilberry
of Wayne told The Daily yester-
day he thought the Senate bill was
superior in many respects and pre-
dicted there would be little diffi-
unty culty resolving the difference.
the Both the Senate and House bills
sors call for establishment if a three
eive year transitional board. During
the transition period Wayne would
evi- be governed by the present seven
the members of the Detroit Board of
be Education and one member each
Uled appointed by the Board of Reg-
urs- ents, the State Board of Agricul-
sors, ture, the State Board of Educa-
d to tion and the governor.
tron Ruthven Report Followed
dor- Both bills are patterned after
New the Ruthven Committee report.
ated The earliest possible date that
rd." the Legislature could take final
Tyne action would be Wednesday since
low- all bills must be held for five days.
the President Hilberry predicted the
the changes made by the Senatewould
the be accepted by the House on that
date.
an Although the elective board pro-
the vided for by the Senate is a legis-
I by lative rather than constitutional
ide- body, its operation would be simi-
ark- lar to the governing agencies of
pre- the University and Michigan State
ying University.
lans Appropriations Included
Appropriations of $3,239,633 are
provided in the new bill, contin-
gent upon turnover of all present
university property to the tempor-
ary board. In addition the bill
calls for operating appropriations
of 10 million dollars.
Continued appropriations of 10
million ┬źdollars annually by the
Detroit Board of Education for
two more years after the initial
osed transition period are contemplated
cret by the Bill.
able During the transition period the
cers State would provide $6,400,000 for
by 1957-'58 and close to 10 million
om- dollars the following year.
After the three year transition
man period the complete burden of fi-
con- nancing and operating Wayne
tish would revert to the State.
First elections for the perman-
had ent board would be held, under
the Senate bill, in April of 1959.

'Strengthen
Free Asia'
Dulles Says
Formosa Area
Thi-eatened Most
WASHINGTON (A) - Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles told
the American people last night
they must help strengthen the free
nations of Asia "or forces of de-
potism will take control."
Just returned from a 19-day trip
to 10 Asain countrits, the secre-
tary gave a half-hour radio-tele-
vision report on his findings.
He declared he came home "en-
couraged" that freedom and in-
creased well-being will prevail if
the United States does its part. As
for war dangers, he said that "the
spot in the Far East where, at the
moment, conflict most threatens
is the Taiwan Formosa area."
Red Chinese Vow
The Red Chinese have vowed
to take, over that stronghold of
Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists,
which the United States is pledged
to defend.
Sec. Dulles said the United
States is "patently but persistently
striving" to get the Red Chinese
to agree upon a reciprocal renun-
ciation.of force.
Sec. Dulles acted as interpreter
of America to the Asians, and of
Asians to Americans. He said .the
threat of Communist infiltration
of Asia through economic aid is-
a grace one, and he implored sup-
port of President Dwight D. Eis-
enhower's $4,900,000,000 foreign
aid program as the answer.
Dulles Cites 'Lures'
To America, Sec. Dulles said
the leaders of Asia are aware that
Communist economic lures have a
"hook and line that leads to Mos-
cow or Peiping." He said they
won't swallow it if they get proper
United States help.
To the Asians, Sec. Dulles said
Americans can understant their
desire for independence. He said
the United States and Asia share
"a bond of sympathy" arising out
of America's historic growth from
a colony to an independent world
power.
Of the foreign aid program, Sec.
Dulles said it will "richly repay
us." He said it is "the margin of
difference" between a friendly and
healthy world and a world "cor-
roded by massive discontents."
"If we wish to see the free world
preservedi and enlarged, we must
help, o forces-of despotism will
take control," Sec. Dulles said.'
"The day is past when the peoples
of Asia will tolerate leadership
which keeps them on a dead-center
economically and socially."
Winter's Death

VU'Pupils
Think Ban
Too Strong
Reactions Bring
Mixed Comment
News of the City Council Ordi-
nance Committee proposal to ban
riding and parking of bicycles on
sidewalks such as State Street
brought mixed comments yester-
day from University students.
Students were quick to respond,
both in favor of, and against, the
proposal.
Bob Karchevski, '57 A & D
summed up the case as most cyc-
lists saw it:
"It would endanger the lives of
the bicycle riders," Karchevski
said, "to force them into the streets
with traffic."
Proposal Too Strong
Other cyclists contacted last
night said they thought the exist-
ing proposal was too strong.
They suggested that instead of
banning riding bicycles on city
sidewalks the City Council should
permit students to walk with the3
bicycles.
Most students expressed thec
opinion that bicycle racks shouldN
be provided in areas of major con-c
gestion. They suggested that thesej
racks be placed near the curb. I
Non-Cyclist Viewpoint' k
An example of the non-cyclistc
viewpoint was afforded by a juniorA
coed, who preferred to remaint
anonymous: -.
"It seems to me that most bi-t
cycle riders don't seem to realize
that there are pedestrians. I don't
mind them riding, but so many of
them speed along as though they
were the only ones on the side-
walk. Then they wonder why they
hit people."
Non-cyclists were generally in
accord with the proposal, although
they, too, thought it a bit strong.
State Street Difficulty
Several mentioned that it was
difficult to enter State Street stores
during the day, because, as an East
Quad resident put it, "those .
bicycle riders leave their bikes
right in front of the doors."
A serious point brought out by
a Taylor House student was, "Does"
the resolution mean that we have
to park our bikeshn the streets
and put coins in the meters?"

State Street
Area To Be
Restricted
Draft New Plan
To 'Curb' Bikes
By RENE GNAM
Ann Arbor City Council Ordi-
nance Committee is presently
drafting a resolution to ban riding
and parking of bicycles on side-
walks of specified areas of Ann,
Arbor.
In a statement released yester-
day to the Daily Alderman Russell
Burns, Ordiiance Committee
Chairman, said "such areas are
likely to include the State Street
area between William and Liberty."
The resolution to revise existing
city bicycle ordinances Is scheduled
to be presented to City Council at
its next meeting Thursday, April 5.
Same Category as Auto*
If passed, Burns said, the reso-
lition will place bicycles in the
same category as 'automobiles.
The resolution provides for the
issuing of tickets and fines, and
can result in court hearings if
students should appeal.
Burns said the resolution now
reads as follows:
"The City Council shall- from
time to time designate certain
areas of the city where the riding
of bicycles and the parking of the
same on either of the sidewalks or
the extensions thereof between the
sidewalk and the curb shall be
prohibited.

WEST QUAD BICYCLES SNOWED UN
By MARY LEE DINGLER -

-Daily-Bll van Osterhout

The calendar turned hypocrite
yesterday.
Technically ,it was the fourth
day of spring, but optiomists who
were planning on the cheerful
chirp of robins to replace the
jangling of an alarm clock were
bitterly disappointed.
By 8:30 a.m. flecks of snow had
begun to form ridges on the win-
dow sills. At high noon, determined
students trudged head down
through the flurries and sloshed
toward their lunch time destina-
tions.
Merry Christmas
Shouts of "Merry Christmas"
and many laments about the win-
tery atmosphere were overheard
in the classrooms, and more than
one wishful thinker paused to gaze
wistfully in the general direction'
of the Southland.
In Mason Hall lobby, a trio of
coeds paused to shake the snow

A New Sport
Amidst the ' snbw-silvered trees
and softly mantled buildings, Ann
Arbor residents tried their skill at
the sport of curb-hopping, an ac-
tivity which involves the ability to
hop over the slush without slipping
off the sidewalk.

According to the weather bureau,
there was a total of four inches of
freshly fallen snow At 4 pn. yes-
terday. Either rain or snow is
forecast within the next forty-
eight hours.
However, it is expected 'to be a
little warmer today and -tomorrow,
so there is a possibility that Janu-
ary might not occur in June after
all.

University Pro

Michigan Acad
There is not much about the
state of Michigan iA any of the
standard high school and college
text-books on United States his-
tory, and what is in them is often
erroneous, according to Prof. Wil-
lis F. Dunbar, president of the
Michigan Academy of Science, Arts
and Letters.
From Western Michigan College,
Prof. Dunbar gave the presidential
address at the Academy's 60th an-
nual meeting.
The various meetings of the
Academy began on Thursday and
will end today.
Outlines Research
Outlining the research he has
done on "Michigan in the History
Textbooks," Prof. Dunbar pointed
out that to sell their books, writ-
ers ┬░of textbooks must capitalize
on the romantic aspects of our
history, often at the expense of
dealing with the significant.
In the psychology section of the
Academy, University Prof. Nor-
man R. F. Maier of the psychology
department spoke on a discussant
on human relations in industry.

fessors Attend
emy Meeting
"The big need in industry to-
day with respect to human rela-
tions is skill-not increased know-
ledge," he asserted.
Maier Speaks
Prof. Maier observed that in the
absence of training, the philosophy
of management is primarily com-
mon sense and the techniques used
are determined more by feeling
than by skill.
Two University professors have
parts in the Language and Litera-
ture section of the Academy to-
day.
Prof. Sheridan Baker of the
English department will speak on
"Cry the Beloved Country: A Study
in the Moral Meaning of Geog-
raphy," and Prof. Joshua McClen-
nen of the English department in
engineering school will speak on
"Absalom, Absalom and the Mean-
ing of History."
Beside section program meet-
ings today, the Academy is- hold-
ing its business meeting, at which
members from' colleges all over
the state will be present.

Wage Debate Held

f

Areas Will Be Posted
"Such areas shall be suitably
posted' py the Police Department
to*warn the public of such prohi-
bitions."
Burns explained that the Police
Department would have the power
to both issue tickets and sum-
monses and impound bicycles
found in the prohibited areas.
He stated:
"The enforcement of the provi-
sions of this ordinance relating to
the regulations.of bicycles and the
attachment of a license tag thereto
and of the riding of. bicycles and
the parking of the same in pro-
hibited areas may be accomplished
by the issuing of tickets therefore
requiring the violator to appear,
before the violation bureau as pro-
vided in Section' 25 of the traffic
ordinances of the City of Ann Ar-
bor."
Bike Padlocked
"The officer issuing the ticket,"
Burns said, "may padlock the bi-
cycle or secure the same until said
bicycle may be picked up by the
Police Department and. held in
storage until the ticket is paid."
In the event it becomes neces-
sary to pick up the bicycle, an extra
fine for transportation would be
imposed, Burns explained.
Upon having received a ticket
from the Police Department for a
violation of the resolution, the vio-
lator would have the choice of pay-
ing the fine imposed, or having his,
case read in Municipal Court.
Result of Complaints
Drafting the resolution is the
result of complaints issued by sev-
eral townspeople, local merchants
and non-cycling University stu-
dents.
The situation is mainly centered
in the State Street Area.-
Burns said yesterday that other
city' areas would probably be af-
fecte'd by the ruling.

CERTIFICATION CODE REVISIONS:

Varied. Protests Raised at Hearings

(E""tor's Note: This is the fourth in
a series of five articles-on the proposed
revision of the Michigan teacher certi-
fication code, up for hearings before
the State Board of Education.)
By ADELAIDE WILEY
In the first three hearings on the
proposed revision of the Michigan
teachers certification code, appar-
ently almost nothing but protests
have piled up.
Although reports have not been
published on the hearings in Mar-
quette, several University profes-
sors have come back from the
hearings in Kalamazoo and Mt.
Pleasant with news of continuoUs

"One of the most impressive
speeches was given by a senior in
high school there," Prof. Scanio
went on. "He said he and his
classmates objected to the new
code because they always felt they
profited from a teacher who knew
about what he was teaching. They
never liked the teacher who had
only a nice personality or knew
methods of teaching with no sub-
ject matter background.
"And a letter from Michigan
State 'University's President, John
Hanna, was read during the hear-
inm. He was comnletely onosed to

L. Taylor called on five people for
their opinions.
"These people, 3 city school sup-
erintendents and 2 county superin-
tendents, gave support to the code
with diluted repetitions of some
code statements in favor of more
professional education," Prof.
Scanio said.,
Superintendent's Comment
One of the men claimed he.'d
never fired a teacher for anything
but not being able to get along
with the pupils, "which insinuates
only one thing," Prof. Scanio
frowned.
"Never has a teacher been fired

tions as to the intent of various
things, in the code, Prof. Stevens
said "There was no support, as
such, for the proposals."
"About 20 people representing
education groups protested the
new code-from Michigan State
University to rural school districts,
opii~on was against it."
Prof. Stevens attended the hear-
ing as a representative of the
Michigan Federation of Teachers
and the Michigan Council of
Teachers of English.
