"I am hired not to have opin-
ions" declared Don Shoemaker,
Executive Director of the South-
ern Education Reporting Service.
Shoemaker voiced his neutrality
yesterday to an audience of jour-
nalism students, interested per-
sons, and faculty of the journalism
department which sponsored this
first in a series of yearly lectures
in Rackham Amphitheatre.
SERS was established by a
group of Southern editors in the
spring of 1954 at the time when
the U.S. Supreme Court was con-
fronted with the school segrega-
tional issue of Brown versus Board
of Education.
In the border states of Mary-
land, Kentucky, West Virginia,
Missouri, Oklahoma, and to some
extent in south and west Texas,
there is substantial compliance
with what appeared to be a court
mandate against compulsory seg-
regation," Shoemaker said.
"Note well the word 'compul-
sory,' "he warned. "It has been
pointed out judicially, and scarce-
ly challenged, that the Supreme
Court did not command integra-
tion Rather, it forbade discrim-
irnttn and directed that any
school be open to any child with-
out race as a consideration of en-
Lack of Desegregation
The Director related that de-
segregation is not in practice in
the public schools of Mississippi,
Alabama, Georgia, Florida and
South Carolina.
"In these states, together with
North Carolina, Louisiana and
Virginia, not a single Negro is
attending a public elementary or
high school with a single white
child," Shoemaker reveals.
But the North is not free from
segregation, he pointed out in re-
ferring to the Northern press
which, he said, is quick to exploit
the evils of the South.
There are areas of precinct dis-
crimination in Northern cities
such as New York and Chicago, he
Shoemaker, in his unbiased po-
sition, could give no predictions
as to the outcome of the issue. He
stated, however, that "there are 45
or more private organizations in
the South to resist desegregation,
while there is not one organization
designed to promote integration."

LYL Dead
Here, Dying
(Continued from Page 1)
year the group had almost nothing
in the way of leadership, and this
year, one of the only two who dis-
played any kind of leadership,
Paul Dormont, has left the cam-
pus and is now in graduate mathe-
matics at the University of Chi-
The other, Bob Schor, plans to
leave the campus in February.
Schor has not been very active,
because he does not wish to jeo-
pardize too much of his future in
his chosen field of physics.
"Total membership listed for the
Ann Arbor LYL by the Michigan
State Police Detective Division
last year was eight, plus about
ten or twelve more classed as fel-
low-travelers. The number this
year is even less, and there is no
evidence that they have had any
kind of formal meeting since the
semester began.
All last year, LYL members
complained of apathy in the stu-
dent body, and throughout the
nation. They also complained of
the atmosphere of suspicion to-
ward the LYL, which explained,
they said, why the LYL operates
mostly in secret.
It was this atmosphere of sus-
picion which LYL members put
forth as the explanation for the
slowing up of its activities. People
did not want to take the chance
of association with the LYL, they
said. And where suspicion left off,
apathy took over.
Looking back now, it was pro-
bably three things that did the
major job of killing the LYL -
suspicion, apathy and the loss of
most of the hysteria, the last of
which left the LYL in a position
of being rather uninteresting.
So it is that the LYL at the Uni-
versity approaches its complete
end after a colorful, controversial
and sometimes useful existence at
the University since 1949, an exis-
tence which at all times has been
under the knowing eyes of Uni-
versity officials and law enforce-
ment officers.

Principle objective of the Uni-
versity's School of Social Work is
to stimulate recruitment to the
Interviewed in his office yester-
day afternoon, Dean Fedele F.
Fauri claimed ". . , the biggest
problem has been the lack of quiet,
qualified personnel to man the
ever-increasing jobs being created
by society, both on the governmen-
tal side, and by voluntary com-
munity agencies."
Dean Fauri explained, "We're
trying to make an attack on that
Two Plans Utilized
Two plans are utilized to carry
out this objective.
The first, Dean Fauri said, calls
for cooperation with the sociology
department to offer a pre-profes-
sional program of social work for
The second program, he said, is
conducted on the graduate level.
It calls for cooperation between
the School of Social Work and the
state's Social Welfare Department,
Mental Health Department, and
the state office of vocational re-
habilitation, as well as other vol-
untary agencies,
Work Provided
Dean Fauri said the second pro-
said, is close to the ideal set up
employes and individuals connect-
ed with outside agencies, as well
as offering short courses for key
personnel, both on campus and in
the extension service.
In explaining why there is a lack
of trained personnel in social work,
Dean Fauri commented, "social
work, historically, has not been in
a strong competitive position with
other fields."

"However," he said, "this posi-
tion is changing rapidly and in
various ways."
Salaries Are Rising
"Salaries," Dean Fauri said,
"have moved upwards quite rapidly
in the last eight years."
He mentioned scholarships as a
second means of inducing persons
to enter the field, and said, "in-
stead of being made available only
by voluntary agencies, scholarships
are now provided by congressional
acts, such as the Mental Health
Act and the Federal Vocational Re-
habilitation Act."
State governments, he claimed,
"have worked with stipends."
Now Used More
According to Dean Fauri, per-
sons trained by social work schools
are now used in many ways previ-
ously uncommon.
He listed use in medical and
psychiatric settings and by guid-
ance centers and clinics and fam-
ily agencies, as among the new
ways in which this training is
In mentioning future plans of
the University's School of Social
Work, Dean Fauri said its offices
an dclasses will soon be established
in the Frieze Building on Washing-
ton and Thayer.
"There," he said, "we will have
all the facilities necessary" for
proper functioning.
In the past, Dean Fauri said,
"our classes were held all over
campus, from the hospital to the
School of Business Administration.
"Being located on campus," he
saild, is close to the ideal set up
for a school of social work.

John C. Nettleton expects to receive his B.S. in chemical engineer-
ing from Villanova University in June 1957. He has served as presi-
dent of the student chapter of A.I.Ch.E., and as secretary of Phi
Kappa Phi fraternity. John is now wondering about the pros and
cons of advanced study in his field.
But I've noticed this at Du Pont. Once a man lands a
job in his chosen field and actually begins to work, his
subsequent advancement depends more on demonstrated
ability than on college degrees. That's true throughout
the entire company-in scientific work, administration,
or what not.
So an advanced degree is not a royal road to anything
at Du Pont, John. But when coupled with proven abili-
ties, it is unquestionably helpful to a man in research and
development work. It often gets him off to a faster start.

Robert J. Buch, M.S., Ch.E., came to the Engineering Devel-
opment Section of Du Pont's Grasselli Research Division from
the University of Louisville four years ago. Since then, he has
engaged in many kinds of chemical engineering work, from pilot-
plant operation to evaluation of the potential of proposed re-
search programs. Within the last year, Bob has taken the re-
sponsibility of procuring B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. technical gradu-
ates in all phases of chemistry and chemical engineering for the
Grasselli Research Division.
N advanced degree would undoubtedly have a favorable
H effect in technical work. John. but let me enlarge on
