University officials will investigate fraternity rows at other schools

while attending a National Interfraternity Council conference in St.

Issue Studied
No decisions were reached con-
cerning a move of commercial air-

Detroit Wayne Major Airport in
yesterday's meeting between
Wayne County officials and rep-
resentatives of six of seven major
airlines now operating from Wil-
low Run.

" University-owned property for fra-
ternity use," Dean Rea commented.
Still in Tentative Stages
Vice-President Lewis said plan-
ning was still in the most tentative
stages with nothing definite as yet.
Along with finding out how fra-
ternity rows are handled elsewhere
the Dean of Men and- Dean of
Women Deborah Bacon have been
asked to determine how many fra-
ternities and sororities are inter-
ested in a fraternity row.
Zerman reported eight to 10
fraternities have expressed inter-
est in the project.
"Besides talking to "University
officials we'd like to speak with
officers of national fraternities to
see what their attitude is," Dean
Reaasaid of the trip to St. Louis.
l TShortage of Locations -
"There is a very definite short-
age of locations and Ann Arbor
realty prices are high. A fraternity
row offers an attractive deal for
houses that are looking for land,"
Dean Rea commented.
Most common form of fraternity
row, and one which has at least
been considered at the University,
consists of lease arrangements.
Under such plans the University
owns the land and leases it to
fraternities for as much as 99
years. In some cases Universities
help finance houses.
Not Uncommon
Dean Rea noted it is not un-
common for -colleges to help fra-
ternities build by lending money
and floating mortgages.
Possible objections to a fratern-
ity row are distance from campus
and increased University super-
vision over fraternities.
Vice-President Lewis pointed
out a fraternity row might well
be closer to campus than several
fraternities now are.
Dean Rea said the University is
not interested in gaining further
control over housing groups. "We
want to offer a mutually attractive
plan to houses that may be in-
terested, he said.
Michigan State is now planning
a similar program which might
include financing of fraternity
houses, Dean Rea said.
Only Northwestern and Indiana,
in the Big Ten, now have fratern-
ity rows. Eleven universities in all
have them.

New Group
Will Meet
With SGC
New members of the Student
Government Council will meet with
the Council at 3:15 today in Rm.
3B of the Union.
The five new members include
Janet Neary, '58, Joe Collins, '58,
Rod Comstock, '58 '57, Don Good,
'57E, and Andy Knight, '58.
Miss Knight became the fifth
candidate elected to the Council
at 2:32 p.m. yesterday.
Elected on theeleventh ballot,
Miss Knight edged out John'
Wrona, '57 to complete the list
of new members.
7,120 Vote
Although total voting predic-
tions ran as high as 9,000, the final
total was counted at 7,120 votes,
7,041 of these as valid ballots.
Votes cast Tuesday totaled 3,500.
Elections Director Tom Cleve-
land, '57, blamed Tuesday's rain
for the loss of votes, He added he
was, pleased with the final vote
because many polling booths had
to be closed because of the rain
and this hampered voting.
Last spring in the first SGC
election 6,070 students cast votes
with 3200 voting the first day. In,
December, when the SGC referen-
dum and Student Legislature elec-
tions were held,-6,741 votes were
registered. Total vote of the recent
election therefore exceeded both
of these by a substantial number.
The new members will serve a
full year's term.
Nominations To Be Heard
Nominations will be accepted at
the meeting today for president,
vice-president and treasurer of the
Nominations will remain open
until Tuesday when election of of-
ficers will be held. New officers
will take over immediately follow-
ing their election and serve for a

Closer Student-Faculty Ties Urged



Smaller classes with more stu-
dent participation and closer re-
lations between students and pro-
fessors were suggested as ways to
stimulate intellectual curiosity at
a student-facultysconference held
at the League last night.
Sponsored by the Literary Col-
lege Steering Committee, the con-
ference dealing with the question
"Does the Literary College Thwart
Students' Intellectual Curiosity?"
was attended by nearly 200 stu-
dents and faculty members.
The meeting began with a brief
panel discussion by two students
and two faculty members.
Sue Levy, '55, representing the

student in honors programs sug-
gested semi-honors classes on the
freshman and sophomore level and
more personal faculty interest in
the student.
She also suggested more hours'
offered for honors courses, allow-
ing the student time to explore.

Prof. Herbert Barrows of the
English department, a member of
the committee on honors curric-
ulums, stressed the University's
concern with the gifted student
and said with the expansion of
the honors programs "this concern
is beginning to bear fruit."
Committee on Activities
Speaking for the student in
extra-curricular activities, Murry
Frymer, '55, Daily Editorial Direc-
tor, said activities satisfy the "de-
sire for self-expression you don't
get in a lecture hall of 200 jet-
propelled stenographers."
A lack of personal give and take
in the classroom, needed to stimu-
late intellectual thinking, partial-

However the lack of a close stu-
dent relationship is not solely be-
cause professors lack time. Stu-
dents do not take advantage of
aculty office hours or teas, Prof.
Knappen pointed out.
To aid student-faculty relations,
Prof. Preston Slossen, of the his-
tory department, suggested an in-
creased number of informal dis-
cussions such as last night's.
Accusations that students are
talked "to and not with" and that
teaching fellows are often "just
interested in subsidizing their own
education" were also expressed.

GOP Supporters
Special to The Daily
CHICAGO-A sharp fight ove
seating of rebellious delegates t
the 1956 Democratic conventio:
seemed inevitable yesterday despit
the unanimous decision of'the Na
tional Committee to abolish tbi
controversial loyalty oath.
The requirement that delegate
agree to support the convention'
nominees, which split the part
in 1952, was removed on the recom
mendation of an advisory commit
tee headed by former Nationa
Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell.
Mitchell promised to contest th
seating at the convention of som

Tempers flared over the.naminE
of Lt. Gov. Ben Ramsey of Texa
to be National Committeeman fron
that state. Ramsey was immed
lately assailed by Dean Johnstor
of the Texas Young Democrats a
being named by a state commit
