Latest Deadline in the State

Hatcher Says 'U'
By JAMES ELSMAN
University President H arl1a n
Hatcher yesterday observed that
the University must necessarily
exercise more "selectivity."
Addressing 400 faculty and staff
members at Rackham Hall, Hat-
cher noted that 47% of the state's
high school graduates will seek
further education next year and
admitted this would strain the ex-
isting facilities of the University
and the other eight state colleges.
Branch School Expansion
He revealed that the state was
now thinking mostly in terms of
expanding Junior and community
college facilities, with limited ex-
pansion facilities at established
institutions to buck the enroll-
ment surge. He did not mention
future plans for the University's
> branch school program.
In his annual "State of the Uni-
versity" message he offered this
advice to the Russell Commission
now studying the needs of state-
wide higher education, "I hope
they will consider that education
is more than a person standing be-
fore 25 or 30 students and trying to
put something across."
"The University will use its in-
fluence to carry education beyond
a mass process," he added.
'Reasonable Proportion of Housing'
As to how increased enrollments
here had put the squeeze on ex-
isting housing facilities, the Uni-
versity President said, "We are
trying to keep a reasonable pro-
portion of housing open to stu-
dents, considering our financial
means and present costs.''
Next fall, 1800 more students are
expected on campus he revealed.
In response to a faculty ques-
tion,' President Hatcher, answered
that the University was progress-
fying "but not as fast as we would
like" in improving faculty salaries.
To another question President
Hatcher replied, "Because the State
is now supporting Wayne Univer-
sity, this should never mean that
other state institutions should be

Steinbeck has achieved a high
place in contemporary American
literature during the past 25
years. In one of the prefaces to
his books Steinbeck notes that
the "play-novelette" which com-
bines many corms is easy to read
and to dramatize by simply "lift-
ing out the dialogue."
In adapting the works of Stein-
beck, Reginald Lawrence declares
such a presentation is an oppor-
tunity to "bring back alive" some
of the people and great moments
you remember from between the
covers of Steinbeck's books.

Hagerty said the White House
had received a number of calls
yesterday about a rumor that the

light of the rumor, commenting:
"If he's ill, he's been doing an
awful lot of work."
President Eisenhower is expect-

for ileitis on the President June 9.
Reporters asked Hagerty to ar-

their examination and after the
issuance of their report. Hagerty
said he did not know whether this
would be possible.

CHICAGO (A)-Adlai Stevenson said yesterday he shares President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's "resentment at the manner and timing of
Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin's H-bomb message.
But, he said, he thought the President's reply "is unfortunate."
Stevenson said the United States should explore Bulganin's pro-
posals: "immediately and all the way."
At the same time, the Democratic presidential nominee said this
is not the first time Russian leaders have interested themselves in
the 1956 election.
He said they have made it plain their candidate is President

WASHINGTON (A)-A group of
10 Polish-American leaders urged
the Eisenhower Administration
yesterday to offer food and tech-
nical aid to the Polish government
to encourage a drive for inde-
pendence from Moscow.
The group laid this appeal be-
fore Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles during a 45-minute meeting
at the department.
Afterward, Charles Rozmarek of
Chicago, acting as spokesman,
said they also appealed for the
United States to "press immedia-
tely before the United Nations"
for complete withdrawal of Soviet
troops from Poland.
Rozmarek, who is president of
the Polish-American Congress, re-
ported Dulles was "very sympa-
thetic" toward the suggestions.
