Counseling Philosophy to be Discussed

An attempt to clarify the philo-
phy of the literary college on
unseling will be made at a con-
rence to be held at 7:30 p.m.
hursday at the Union.
Entitled "The Undergraduate's
ducation: Student or Counselor's
esponsibility?" the conference is
onsored by the Literary College
eering Committee.
In establishing atcounseling pro-
am three possible policies ex-
, according to Dean, James' H.
oertson, assistant dean of the
terary College and advisor to the
.eering Committee.
"The first is to do practically
>thing, believing that the stu-
nt gains more from trial and
ror, hearsay and experience," he
This pattern is $ followed by

Princeton University as well as
in the University's School of Busi-
ness Administration, where stu-
dents sign their own election
"When adopting the second view
the University takes full almost
parental responsibility for the stu-
dents. They are helped with aca-
demic problems, decisions about
fraternities or sororities and resi-
dence hall difficulties. The Uni-
versity becomes their big brother,"
Dean Robertson continued.
A position similar to this is held
by the University of Minnesota.
The Literary' College has adopt-
ed a middle-ground policy. "We
assume that freshmen have special
problems for which we should take
some responsibility. But we are
anxious as soon as possible to let

stamp Club Features History
)f Middle East In Exhibit,

Yesterday's 40-frame stamp ex-
hibition of the Ann Arbor Stamp
Club featured the postal history
of the middle east.'
Held in the Michigan Room of
the League, the exhibits depicted
:ajor events in middle eastern
nations, with emphasis placed on
historical occurrences which af-
fected post office issues.
Besides postal history, the ex-
hibition featured cancellations and
rates that were in effect at spe-
cific dates.
The Tibetan collection of Frank
Whitehouse, 'Jr., University in-
structor in bacteriology, "centered
around five postal systems." r
Whitehouse's display showed
hiow the postal system of Tibet,
begun by the pre-revolutionary
Chinese goyernment in 1909, fre-
luently changed hands.
Revolution in Tibet
When the Tibet revolution oc-
curred in 1912, the independent Ti-
bet government started printing its
own stamps. Then Great Britain
ntervened and issued the stamps
until India achieved dominion
tatus in 1947.
The Indian government con-
rolled Tibet's postal system from
heni until April,- 1955, when they
urned it over to the Chinese Com-
nunists. At present, the Commun-
sts issue all Tibet stamps.
A second representative collec-
ion at the exhibition was Gor-
Ion Torrey's display of "geogra-
hical" Syria, a term which in-
ludes most of the old Ottoman
Empire and middle eastern nations.
Supervision in Syria i
In the 19th century, this col-
ection points out, foreign powers,,
ncluding France, Great Britain,
Jnited States, Austria and Rus-
ia, maintained post offices in
3yria w h i c h were supervised
hrough consulate offices.
With several . powers issuing
tamps, cut-rate competition re-
Playreading Group
The Ann Arbor Playreading
troup will meet at 8 p.m. tomor-
ow .at the Masonic Temple to
ead Tennessee Williams' "Sum-
ner and .Smoke."
Directed by Bill Caldwell, the
;roup meets every three weeks to
ead well-known plays. Dues for
nembers are a nominal 50c per
ear, while the public is invited
o watch free of charge.

At the beginning of the first
World War, the Turkish Empire
cancelled allied post offices and
the Germans gave up theirs. These
were reinstated after the war, but
were cancelled again by the Treaty
of Lausane, in 1923. At present in-
dependent governments print their
own stamps.
The collection of Prof. Peter A.
S. Smith of the chemistry depart-
ment is the "story of the rise and
fall of French influence in Egypt."
Situation in Egypt
This postal history dates back
to the time when France tried to
make Egypt a part of the French
colonial system., The situation
changed when British influence
predominated in Egypt.
Later, the independent Egyptian
government put an end to French
post offices in Egypt.
Other representative collections
at the exhibition included frames
of United States Confederacy
stamps and American overprinting
on World War II European stamps.
Subjects Tell
bout Trance
Both Malcolm MacDonald '59,
and Mary Foree '59 described the
sensation of being hypnotized by
Franz Polgar as, "a wonderful sen-
sation which felt very restful."
They both thought that they
had been on the stage for only
five or ten minutes, when actu-
ally it had been an hour and a
half. Neither MacDonald or Miss
Foree remember much about the
unusual and humorous antics they
When asked why they did some
of the things they did, calling
themselves Joe and Irene and ar-
guing that five and five is twelve,
they both agreed, "that it just
felt like the natural thing to do,"
and they took Polgar's word as
"the Gospel truth."
Thesmost unusual thing to hap-
pen as a result of Friday night's
show is that Miss Foree no longer
feels like eating. Feeling a little
overweight, she asked Polgar to
help her lose a few pounds. Now
she "no longer feels like eating
that type of food."
Both MacDonald and Miss Foree;
after spending a very restful eve-
ning on stage, slept well with no
bad after effects.

students take care of themselves,"
Dean Robertson explained.
He also stressed that the stu-
dent gains by making the initial
move to get help.
Be All Cards
In further interpreting the philo-
sophy of the literary college Dean
Robertson said, "Counseling can
be looked at as extra-educational.
But the literary college does not
endorse being all things to all
"Our counseling is merely to aid
students in educational growth."
Three things that Dean Robert-
son suggested as means to improve
counseling were: a clearer recog-
nition on the part of both stu-
dents and faculty of the basic
philosophy of the literary college,
improvements in structure and
practice, to get more faculty people
to help, and a look into the pos-
sibility of working more closely
with other counseling organiza-
tions, such as the bureau of psy-
chological service or the reading
The conference is open to the
public. David Levy, '57, chairman
of the Steering Committee, stressed
the importance of a large under-
classman turn-out.

New Atom
A ccelerator
A new super atom smasher re-
cently authorized by the Atomic
Energy Commission will be many
times more powerful than any
known today,
The new machine may be lo-
cated at the University. It will
be installed in one of 14 colleges
by the Midwestern Universities
Research Association.
Prof. H. R. Crane of the physics
department, the University's rep-
resentative on the MURA, says the
planned accelerator may have the
power of a trillion electron-volts,
over 150 times as many as the
largest in use today.
In the new accelerator head-on
collision will be made possible be-
tween atomic particles travelling
in opposite directions.
Prof. Crane explains that the
result will be a multiplied effect
25 to 100 times higher than in
present atom-smashers, in which
stationary targets are bombarded.
One of the proposed plans calls
for the construction of two ac-
celerators side by side. In this
design, beams of atomic particles
in each machine would be directed
at each other.
Prof. Crane stressed that energy
bound up in the particles will be
converted into mysterious new par-
ticles in which physicists are
gr'eatly interested.
If two accelerators are used, the
project would be 1000 feet in dia-
meter for each machine. Total
cost of construction may run as
high 'as $100 million.
Electricity required to run the
thing would be greater than that
used in the entire city of Ann Ar-
The University has long been a
leader in the development of atom-
smashers and in other fields of
atomic physics. The cyclotron
here, built in 1937, was the second
one in the world. It is still in
