Faculty Found Confused
Over Functions of Senate

-(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in 'a series of articles dealing with the
University's Faculty Senate, its roles
and its problems. The series is based
on discussions with individual faculty
members and administrators.)
If there is such a thing as repre-
~'sentative faculty opinion, the role
af the Faculty Senate is an unclear,
or at least misunderstood, one.
More than a few faculty mem-
bers express the belief that the
Senate has no truly active func-
tions to perform, that it possesses
no clearly spelled-out prerogatives
because it has no ultimate author-
ity or decision-making powers.
Others Insist that the over-all
faculty bodys doesthav ladelegate
ticipation on the part of individual
faculty members stifles the execu-
tion of th:se prerogatives.
Needs Clear Plan
And still others view the Senate
as an organization with no defined
purpose or policy and capable of
becoming an active faculty organ
only through adoption of a clearly
mot amnistratv highe eh-
theu poesorial staff, say the
function to perform, and that it
is performing it. Most proponents
of this view, however, temper their
views enough to say that certain
problems do confront the Senate.

human beings, unanimity is a dif-
ficult thing to achieve. Unanimity

ulty members and administrative
officers, many administrators and
professors say, is at times even
more difficult to achieve than in
other fields.
Nevertheless, most teaching and
administrative staff at the Univer-
sity would seem to be in agreement
on several basic facts.
The ever-increasing size of the
University, often considered in
light of difficult problems which
it creates for the administration,
is of no less concern to the faculty.
Size Effects Communication
Professors in all the University's
colleges point out that a doubling
student population' is not solvd
by merely doubling numnber of in-
structors. Of very prim~e concern
is the effect on the lines of com-
munication, nt onl btweenmbar-
but from one academic department
to another.
Many faculty members say that
inter-faculty communication is
presently "all but 'non-existent"
and view with alarm the increase

Time Creates Problem
Time, also, is a problem. Prof.
Marston Bates of the zoology de-
partment sums it up, "Why should
I open my mouth at meetings

when I know my reward will be a
committee appointment."
Prof. Bates explains that "strat-
egy of time" is important to all
faculty members. "When you have
departmental committees, college
committees and University com-
mittees all soliciting your attend-
ace theresis little time lef to
accept committee responsibility
when yo u nowithat you. cannot
time to do it justice."
Administration Handicapped
University Vice-President Mar-
vin L. Niehuss also points out that
the administration is handicapped
by lack of time and the problems
generated from the increasing size
of the 'University. "The ideal is
often hard to obtain," Niehuss
says "s a d m n sative w r m u-
crop up." .
"The administration recognizes
the benefits of consulting with the
faculty on University matters, but
in many cases time makes it a
necessity to ta1~e a poll of college

created by lack of time and growth
of the University provide some-
what of an over-all common

Wardrops Suspended7
For 'Insubordination

Swimming Coach Gus Stager announced last night that star
swimmers Jack and Bert Wardrop have been suspended from the
Michigan team.
In a statement to the Daily early yesterday evening, Stager said
that the suspension of the Scottish twins was due to a "case of
He pointed out that Bert Wardrop was not directly connected
with the "insubordination," but any action taken on his brother
Jack would naturally affect his own swimming.
The decision was reached shortly after Michigan's 52-50 defeat
at the hands of Indiana. Stager emphasized that the suspension was

missiles, and that Russian progress imperils this country.
Fraternity Hazing . . .
NEW YORK--A ban on hazing such as cost the life of a Massa-
chusetts Institute of Technology student was ordered yesterday by
national officers of Delta Kappa Epsilon.
The DKE National Council said it has demanded that its chap
trs henceforth confine initiation activities to the fraternity house
and that this order will be "vigorously pursued."
The council was spurred by the drowning of Thomas L. Clark,
18, of Harvey, Ill., who drowned in a Cambridge, Mass., reservoir
while on an initiation stunt.

Kniowland . . .
WASHINGTON-Sen. William Knowland (R-Calif.) was reported
preparing yesterday to broaden his unofficial campaign for the
Republican presidential nomination on what he apparently regards
as the 50-50 chance President Eisenhower won't run again.
Eisenhower's resumption of sports activities after the reassuring
reports of doctors earlier in the week evidently has not swayed Know-
lan's elef that the odds againd a second-term bid remain even.

A comparison of the Soviet com-
munist system to religion was
stressed by William Edgerton,
specialist in Russian studies, in 'a
talk last niht.
Edgerton pointed to the lines
odpeosplfe who wait to see the
amples of religious feeling whic
is transferred to the Comuit
party and its leaders.nis
Edgerton spent two months In
Russia last summer as a part of
the American Friends Service
mission to the Soviet Union during
which he traveled from Leningrad
to the provinces and Kiev, later
returning to Moscow. He also
'spent time doing research on Rus-
sian literature in Moscow and
Leningrad libraries.
Observing 'Russian life in his
travels, Edgerton found a great
thirst for culture which often re-
sulted in a black market in books
and literature.
Edgerton also noticed .a, sur-
prising lack of common machinery
such as farm implements in the
Soviet Union. He pointed out that
much of the work was done by
manual labor.
.In addition the language spec-
ialist noticed a tremendous amount
of construction going on in the
Soviet Union, especially in hous-
ing facilities.
"A genuine, deep-rooted desire
for peace is very noticeable in the
Russian people," Edgerton said.
He pointed out that this desire
was being channeled into hatred
of the U.S. as a possible aggressor
by the Communist party.

day old embargo on the shipment

President Dwight D. Eisenhower
made the final decision, on the
recommendation of the state de-

In Line With Policy
A state department 8nnounce-
ment said the two day embargo
was ended after officialIs had satis-
fied themselves that shipment of
the tanks to Saudi Arabia would
be in line with United States
policies designed to avoid an arms
race between Israel and the Arab
states and to promote stalility and
peace in Palestine.
Press officer Lincoln White said
the lifting of the stop order has
no relationship to a pexiding 50-
million-dollar request from Israel
for jet airplanes, anti-aircraft guns
and other weapons to offset the
sale of Communist arms to Egypt
by Czechoslovakia.
Shlipment Restored
The effect of the presidential
decision therefore was to restore
the arms shipments sitluation as
it existed prior to the dramatic
issuance of the stop order shortly
after midnight on Friday morn-

Stager's drastic move was defi--
nitely not a last-minute decision.
The situation had been building
up throughout the season, and
seemed to be causing unrest on

Problem Over Captain
much of the conflic hdbe
caused by Jack's disappointment
after not being elected captain of
the team last spring. Many people
close to the scene felt he deserved
that position.
It is also believed that he was
unhappy when he was not chosen
for a Michigan honorary society
last spring, even though he ranked
as one of the world's greatest
swimmers. At the time it was not
known whether he and his brother
would return to Ann Arbor for
their senior year, 6r if they would
be swimming for Michigan.

Soviet press yesterday directly and

The man whose words were

He devotedl his remarks in con-

lews on capitalism and Stalin's
ersion of Soviet history. The text
f Mikoyan's address was pub-
shed by the Soviet press and
roadcast over the Soviet radio
esterday morning. Apparently
he delay in its issuance reflected
erious soul searching about it at
he highest party levels.
For two decades, said Mikoyan,

Mikoyan said Stalin's statement
Shis last work, "The Economic
roblems of Socialism in the
r.S.SR."-that production in the
rnited States, France and Britain
rould shrink-is a mistake. It
can hardly help us and is hardly

tiat this entire work by Stalin be
aveiwed critically "from the point
Sview of Marxism-Leninism."
Book Criticized

iblished in millions of copies and

Mikoyan's views on Stalin's

Karamanlis countered with the
charge that the coalition is playing

creation of the coalition "has made
