New Fund Drive
"A message of importance to YOU.. ."
These are the words that launched the first Ann Arbor United
Fund Drive, a campaign that has set its goals at $306,210, 64 per cent
more than last year.
For the first time the Ann Arbor Comunity Chest, the Washtenaw
County Chapter of the American Red Cross and the Michigan United
Fund have united their efforts in a single drive. This year the citizens
give once for all. This is a movement' toward complete units of Ann
Arbor fund raising agencies.
Because the University constitutes a large proportion of.the livli-
hood of Ann Arbor, we are depended upon to contribute our share to
the campaign. Prof. Lee Worrell "

Although the campaign is half-
way over, only $6,000 1has been
collected thus far, compared to
the $28,700 procured last year in
the Community Chest drive.
All 8,500 faculty members and
University employees have been
asked to contribute. Because of the
great University expansion a new
system has been divised for solic-
The new plan consists of 100
unit chairmen, each in charge of

opportunity to make a contribu-
tion in one of three ways: payroll
deduction, a personal pledge or

use of personal IBM cards was an
attempt to coerce a contribution.

is intended. "We must recognize

Crisler Says
Aid Report
Only .Appraisal;
Not Legislation
Associate Sports Edtior
A report on recruiting and fi-
nancial aid, released last Monday
by the Big Ten, is not to be con-
sidered a recommendation, accord-
ing to H. O. "Fritz" Crisler, Michi-
gan's athletic director.
Crisler, a member of the com-
mittee issuing the lengthy and
strongly worded report, told The
Daily yesterday the member in-
stitutions are under no obliga-
tion either to accept or to reject
the document's principles.
"The job of the committee was
to analyze the trends of recruiting
and financial aid in the Western
Conference," said Crisler.
"We did not ask that any legis-
lation be passed by the Big Ten
schools; we put our findings into
the hands of the members. It's up
to them. They can reject, accept
or ignore our findings."
If any legislation concerning aid
based on economic need is to result
from the report, it will probably
be during the Conference meeting
in December.
Crisler, who fully concurred
with the report, described it as "a
good self-appraisal" of Big Ten
athletic activities.
"There are two significant points
which should be considered," con-
tinued Crisler. "One, it is a very
searching, frank, harsh review of
Conference rules and their effec-
tiveness; and two, the report is a
projection of what can happen 10
years from now."
"This last point has confused
many people who have read news-
paper accounts of the report. The
'horrible' situations referred to are
not taking place now, but are
merely predictions of what can
happen in the future if nothing is
Crisler, when asked how Michi-
gan would be affected by the 24-
page report, mentioned that no
schools in particular were named.
"We'll have to wait until some
legislation is passed before we can
discuss how our school is affected."
Some speculation was made as
whether or not University officials
would confer with Northwestern
University officials who will be
here this weekend for the Michi-
gan-Northwestern game.
However, University Athletic Ad-
ministrators did not comment up-
on the possibility of such confer-

ticipation. If this goal is achieved
it will be a big step toward the
University's proposal to units the
various student drives with the
Ann Arbor United Fund.
This suggestion was brought up
and approved last year, but it was
too late in the year to consolidate
them for this fall's drive.
Last year eight fraternities con-
tributed $125.22 six sororities gave
$52.47, while 11 dormitories con-
tributed $131.82. The grand total
for student participation was 25
contributions totaling $309.51.
The University campaign is not
aimed at the student, however, put
rather at the faculty and em-
ployees, who are citizens of the
city with civic responsibility.

First Community Chest

Drive Set for May


.Campus Community Chest announced it wlil hold the first unified
charity drive in the Universtiy's history May 6 through May 11.
Working on the Community Chest principle, Chairman Don Mac-
Lennan said the drive wlil replace four separate yearly campaigns
usually held on the campus..
At the same meeting, a letter from the Woman's Athletic Asso-
ciation announced WAA will join the unified drive, giving Campus
Chest its portions of the proceeds from Michigras and Spring Weekend.
Only one charity organization, Galens, will not participate in the
Campus Chest's drive. Bob Kretszchmar, '57Med, president of Galens,

said it only remains for the Cam-<
pus Chest and Galens to decide on
how much of the Chest's proceeds
Galens will get.
Whether Galens will join is a1:-
most an academic question, as they
cannot expect SGC approval for
a separate bucket drive. At pres-
ent, the Galens have an offer of a
$7,000 guarantee and a percentage
of the proceeds if they will merge,

Davis Submits Blueprints
For International House
James Davis, International Center director, last week submitted a
plan for a new international house to the University Administration.
The proposed building would accomodate 1,000 selected American
and foreign students in apartment and residence hall types of housing.
Foreign student opinion on this project has been largely favor-
able. Bipir C. Desiafl, Grad., from India remarked that many in-
ternational students now live in "self-imposed segregation; Indians
with Indians and Turks with Turks."
Desai said the proposed International Center would give many
of these students "a chance to know people from other countries
"> including the United States in the
best way possible, by living with

alleviate conditions.
Taking a somewhat different
view was Andy Chaudhry of Pakis-
tan who suggested the complete-
ness of the proposed project might
offer some foreign students an op-
portunity to avoid wider contact
with Americans.
Chaudhry said he believed thisj
effect might be lessened if some
system of rotation were utilized.
"In this way," he continued, "the
arriving foreign student might
have the advantages and security
of living in an international house
for a few months. Then he could
move out."
