'State of Uiversity' Talk Considers
Increases in Student Enrollment


Increased enrollment does not mean that the University is in a
race with anybody on the basis of numbers, University President Har-
lan Hatcher said yesterday.
In his "State of the University" speech before faculty and staff
(members gathered in Rackham lecture hall, President Hatcher de-
clared, "There is no virture in mere size.
"So far," he continued, "we have found no incompatability be-
tween growth and quality of work performed. The work being per-
formed lhere in 1955 fully equals that at any other time in the history
of Michigan."

population, the President also called
- upon Vice-President Wilbur K.
Pierpont, James A. Lewis and Mar-
vin L. Niehuss for reports from
their administrative departments.
President Hatcher recalled the
"crisis" of returning students fol-
lowing World War II and said,
"The University is trying to pre-
vent any other crisis through pre-
paring for the normal controlled
growth of the institution with an
- insurance of greatest possible edu-
cational benefits."
He said that the least that can
g be anticipated in the next 15 to 20
's years is a doubling of college at-
-tendance, but stressed. that this
figure depended on the stability of
r the present college to non-college
il attendance ratio.
Must Accept 1,000 Students
"In order to keep up with our
n proportionate share of this great
n national increase, we will need to
t accept approximately 1,000 more
it students per year," he commented.
- Enrollment will be limited to
around 22,000 next year, Presi-
s dent Hatcher said after the meet-
g ing. New housing facilties will ac-
it comodate approximately 1,200 new
e students, he said.
President Hatcher stressed that
k. the undergraduate schools at the
d, University would grow along with
r the graduate schools saying, "We
must have a proper distribution of
e, students throughout the entire
- spectrum of classes."
Explains Expansion
d Vice-President Pierpont explain-
t ed five areas of plant expansion
- which the University is now co-

- An explanation of the duties
and presentactivities of the Vice-
n President for Student Affairs was
it given by Vice-President Lewis, who
e termed his job as "one of co-'

Startled b a small explosio,
the brothers rushed outside to
see their efforts literally go up
in smoke. The varnish covered
figure was hit with an unknown
type of bomb thrown by youths
believed to be of high school
age, and quickly caught fire.
The blaze was serious enough
to threaten the fraternity house
so the Ann Arbor fire depart-
ment was called upon to ex-
tinguish the conflagration and
prevent its spread.
Ben Youssef
May Regain
BEAUVALION, France () --
Deposed Sultan Mohammed Ben
Youssef, 41, returned to France
from a two-year Madagascar ex-
ile yesterday and entered political
talks that could return him to his
turbulent Moroccan throne within
three weeks.
Amid nationalist exultation and
conciliatory French moves, Yous-
sef took up temporary residence
in a well guarded Riviera hotel
and prepared for a meeting, tenta-
tively set for today in Paris, with
Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay.
Meets With Pnay
The Sultan met yesterday after-
noon with Pinay's right-hand man,
Henri Yrissou, to arrange the
meeting that could pave the way
for his return to Morocco. Pinay
was scheduled to go to Paris from
Geneva, where he is attending the
Big Four foreign ministers con-
The French government view is
now held to be that Moroccan op-
position to the Sultan has ceased
to exist and, barring any unto-
ward outbreaks, he could resume
his throne by Nov. 18, anniversary
of the date he ascended the throne
in 1927 on his father's death.
Maintains 'Moderate' Attitude
Youssef has maintained a mod-
erate attitude since negotiations
began to restore order in the pro-
tectorate that has been rocked by
violence since his ouster two years
a g o. Moroccan " opposition to
Youssef faded to insignificance in
the past week following two start-
ling developments:
1. Powerful Berber chieftain
Thami el Glaoui, Pasha of Mar-
rakech, who helped oust the Sul-
tan two years ago, made an about
face and demanded Youssef's re-
2. Aged Mohamed Ben Moulay
Arafa, who reigned insecurely dur-
ing the Sultan's two-year absence,
declared from his present home in
Tangier that he renounced all
rights in favor of Youssef.

Antitrust and Monopoly subcom-

scale study of General Motors.
This study of the world's largest
manufacturerwillhbe a part of the

tion in the automotive industry.
The public hearings, to start
Nov. 8, will run three or four
weeks. Witnesses are to include

O'Mahoney Designated
Sen. Joseph C. O'Mahoney (D-
Wyo.), a sub-committee member,
has been designated to preside by
Chairman Harley M. Kilgore (D-
W.Va.) who is abroad.
Senator O'Mahoney said the ses-
sions "are not an 'investigation'
but a study."
Nevertheless, the Senator said,
the "staff has studied a number
of complaints that General Motors
and other automobile producers
are forcing dealers to purchase
unwanted cars, parts and acces-
sories, and exercise dictatorial
control over the type and size of
their establishments, accounting
methods, advertising and other
business practices.
Charges Vassalage
"Technically, these dealers are
independent business enterprises.
It has been charged that, in fact,
they are frequently littlenmore
than economic vassals who exist
at the pleasure of the manufactur-
ers, and have little or no indepen-
dent choice of important business
Senator O'Mahoney said the sub-
committee also is interested in
charges that the relative bargain-
ing power of General Motors and
other auto companies is so great
as to place suppliers at an unfair
The principal purposes of the
sessions, Senator O'Mahoney said,
are to determine ".) whether or
not the present size and scope of
General Motors operations are the
result primarily of superior effi-
ciency and competitive skill;
2.) whether or not the great
power associated with its size and
scope, however achieved, carries
with it the opportunity for abuse;
or 3.) whether or not without
abuse, the very magnitude of the
corporation makes competition al-
most impossible."
Morse Urges
Price Support
PENDLETON, Ore. () - Sen.
Wayne Morse (D-Ore.) yesterday
called the administration farm an
"economic ringer" for farmers and
urged restoration of high rigid
farm price support.
The former Republican senator
who turned Democrat told a Sen-
ate Agriculture Committee hearing
that "Secretary of Agriculture Ezra
T. Benson and the administration
do not intend to remedy the farm
A number of farmers advocated
a so-called two-price plan under
which growers would be assured
full parity prices for their indi-
vidual shares of the wheat con-
sumed as food in this country.

Russia Proposes New
Europe Security Pact

Israel Asks I
Reds To Halt
Arms Sale
Sharett, Molotov
Meet At Geneva
GENEVA (P)-Prime Minister
Moshe Sharett called on Soviet
Foreign Minister Vyacheslav M.
Molotov yesterday to halt the sale
of Communist bloc arms to Is-
rael's Arab neighbors.
Sharett went into the confer-
ence with Molotov resolved to tell
him the Communist tactic:
1. Might touch off new Mideast-
ern fighting that could engulf
Europe and the world.
2. Penalize Israel's policy of non-
alignment, which Russia supports
in other parts of the world.
Russia Bids For Influence
Communist sale of arms to the
Egyptians is seen by Western and
Israeli diplomats alike as a bid to
leapfrog Russian influence over
the Baghdad alliance binding the
countries along the northern tier
of the Mideast.
Britain also is a member. while
the United States expects to join
later. Russia and Israeli alike have
denounced that pact.
The Russians are believed also
to want a voice in Mideastern af-
fairs-possibly at a big power con-
ference in which the Arabs and
Israelis could sit in. .
First Meeting
It was the first time Sharrett
had met face-to-face with Moo-
toy since Czech tanks, guns, sub-
marines and MIG fighters began
to flow into Egypt.
He applied to Molotov in Moscow
nearly two weeks ago for the con-
ference. He got a definite yes only

Asks Finish
German Unity
Again Bypassed
GENEVA (M) - Soviet Foreign
Minister Vyacheslav M. Molotov
asked the Western Powers yester-
day to join in a revised collective
security pact with the Soviet bloc,
leaving Germany divided and set-
ting no deadline for abolishing the
military alliances of East and
In revising his thrice-rejected
security treaty, Molotov said the
North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion, the Western European Union'
and the Communist Warsaw treaty
organization should be liquidated.
But he said the Soviet govern-
ment does not propose a date for
the liquidation.
Molotov Proposes
Molotov proposed that a semi-
demilitarized zone be established
to cover both the East and West
German republics and "all or some
neighboring states."
The Russians thus took an ar-
ticle from the West-supported
"treaty of assurance" against Ger-
man aggression and adapted it in
effect to neutralize all Germany.
The Western Powers proposed
last week that such a zone straddle
the frontiers of a reunited Ge-"

Dulles Withholds Comment
While Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles and French Foreign
Minister Antoine Pinay temporar-
ily withheld comment, British For-
eign Secretary Harold Macmillan
told Molotov:
"This whole plan is based on
the partition of Germany into two
parts. Before it can be profitably
studied we need to have promised
Soviet proposals for German re-
unification. Without German re-
unification there can be no real
progress toward security."
The Western foreign ministers
earlier urged the Soviet Union tor
sweep aside the Iron Curtain for
peaceful trade and freer contacts.
Molotov also offered ideas on that
Path Blazed
Secretary Dulles blazed a path
toward friendlier East-West rela-
tions with these voluntary actions:
1. He lifted the State Depart-
ment ban on American travel to
the Soviet Union and all other
Communist countries in Eastern
Europe with which the United
States maintains diplonatic rep-
resentation. With few exceptions,
American passports have been in-
valid for those areas since 1952.
Even now, of course, entry will
depend on the rate at which the
Communist bloc nations issue
2. Dulles pleadged United States
regulations on peaceful exports to
the Soviet bloc will now be pro-
gressively simplified. "There is a
solid basis for good will between
us," Dulles told Molotov. "It is.
a fact of history which should be
remembered that our peoples have
never fought each other."

To Study Discrimination
At its first formal meeting of the year, Student Government
Council's Human Relations Board yesterday decided to investigate
several complaints of discrimination against minority group students.
The former Anti-Discrimination Board also agreed it would
consider as within its jurisdiction all human relations problems
concerning students.
Among the complaints members were assigned to investigate
were the familiar ones of discrimination in local barber shops and
questions regarding roommate preference on residence hall applica-
tions. Problems arising over the*

SGC Candidates Express
Reasons for Seeking Posts
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the.second in a series of articles on the reasons
Student Government Council candidates give for running for SGC.)
When Student Government Council elections are held Nov. 16 and
17 only 12 of the 17 persons who took out petitions will be candidates
for the five open positions.
These twelve people have several reasons in common for running
as well as completely individual personal goals and aims.
The most familiar reason candidates offer is they are just inter-
ested in student government. Jerry Spielman, '58, however, had quite
a different idea in mind when he
took out his petition.

Making his first visit to the
United State, Mr. Katsumata is
