Driving Age Lowered
University Regents voted last February to lower the permissable
driving age for students from 26 to 21. The move was the first change
of University driving regulations in 29 years.
The Regents agreed to lower the age limit for an "experimental"
two year period, during which periodical reports would be submitted
to them examining the success of the modified restrictions.
Going into effect Sept. 1, the new regulations involved muchl

stricter penalties for violations than the old rules did. Fines up to
$50 are now being levied for first offenses and possible explusion.from
school for further violations.
Deferred Sorority Rushing
In March, Student Govoynment 4uncil, sop to reach the end
of its two year trial status, moved to defer sorority rushing to the
spring semester.
After four weeks of "incentive, objective" work, a special Pan-
hellenic-Assembly study committee submitted a majority report to
the Council in favor of spring rushing for the sorority system.
Panhellenic Association however, voted against the recommenda-
tion, labeling it as "impractical."
Nevertheless, on March 14, SGC voted 10-8 to adopt the ma-
jority report of the study committee. The ruling will go into effect
with the beginning of the academic year 1957-58.
Bicycle Restrictions
Student ire was aroused late in March, when Ann Arbor officials
began taking steps to restrict the primary means .of student trans-
portation: bicycles.
Procedings were set in movement to enforce the licensing of all
bicycles. By May 21, police began impounding unlicensed bicycles.
Soon afterwards, Ann Arbor City Council passed a resolution
prohibiting the riding or parking of bicycles on the sidewalks in cer-
tain areas of the city, notably on State St. between William and
The action followed complaints from many people that bicycles
were constantly congesting the sidewalks on State St., making it
difficult to enter stores.
Student Crash Kills Five
A note of tragedy struck May 18, when three University students
were killed and a fourth critically injured in a head-on automobile
collision a few miles outside of Ann Arbor.
Two Detroit residents, driving the other car, also died.
The students, three members of Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity and
a girl, were dressed in formal clothes and had been driving to a fra-
ternity dinner in Dixboro.
The accident was the first traffic fatality involving students
during the school year since 1949.
President Sukarno Visits
Indonesian President Sukarno paid a brief whirlwind visit to
the University on May 27 during which he received an honorary doc-
tor of law degree.

'U' Budget
Not Needed
University Vice-President and
Dean of Faculties Marvin .Niehuss
said yesterday the University will
not request any money for in-
struction at Dearborn Center this
He denied reports that the Uni-
versity would substantially sup-
plement the budgetary requests
now before Governor G. Mennen
The Center, the planned result
of a gift by the Ford Motor Com-
pany of $6,500,000 and 210 acres
of land in Dearborn, will not begin
large scale operations until 1959,
Vice-President Niehuss reaffirmed.
Since the Ford grant should
come very close to covering the
initial construction costs, he said
that any possible legislative help
needed for the 1957-1958 school
year would be only in the fields
of organization and study.
He added that expenses in these
areas would not be incurred until,
the legislature has in some way
indicated its approval of the Uni-
versity's plans for utilization of
the Ford gift.'
Operating expenses will not be
requested, Vice-President Niehuss
commented, for another year.
While they will be based on closer
estimates of student enrollment
than are now available, current
thinking sees "not more than
half" the planned Dearborn Cen-
ter enrollment of 2,770 during the
first year.
Budgetary requests, which for
the Ann Arbor campus run ap-
proximately $1,000 per student,
are then expected to be propor-
tional to the number of students
enrolled. The full operating bud-
get for Dearborn Center, then,
will not be requested for at least
two years.

School Plan
A program to establish 23 com-
munity colleges throughout Mich-
igan was recommended yesterday
to the State Legislature.
S. V. Martorana, an expert hired
by the Legislative Committee on
Higher Vducation, proposed. the
program, which called for the ex-
penditure of an' estimated $75,-
000,000 over the next ten years.
The recommendation resulted
from combined work of the Com-
mittee on Higher Education and a
study committee appointed by
Gov. G. Mennen Williams a month
Local colleges proposed in the
recommendation include six in
Wayne County, two in Oakland
County, and one to serve north-
eastern Macomb County.
Martorana said none of the
college sites were picked for areas
now served by private or denomi-
national colleges and the proposed
schools would accommodate about
18,000 students.
Another comment on the com-
munity college program came
from Vice-President for Student
Affairs James A. Lewis who re-
marked that the University has
encouraged the junior college
movement as one of the solutions
to the "impending tidal wave" of

With China's
Chou En-lai
Finds Foreign Policy
'Flexible, Adaptable
To Circumstances'
WASHINGTON (W) - India's
Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru
said yesterday he brought word to
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
that Red China expects the United
States to take some "favorable"
action to ease Far East tensions.
Prime Minister Nehru left some-
what clouded just what the Red
Chinese want. But it seemed that,
somehow, the fate of 10 Ameri-
cans being held by them might
be involved.
News Conference
The 67-year-old Indian leader,
lean and alert, responded crisply
to dozens of questions at a no-
holds-barred news c o n f e r e n c e
which lasted 45hminutes.

Policy Not Rigid
2) He found, in his talks with
President Eisenhower, that U.S.
foreign policy is "not as rigid as
I, thought." Indeed, it appeared to
be "a flexible policy adapting it-
self to circumstances."
3) He also found, as regards-~he
U. S. attitude toward Indian neu-
trality in the cold war, that "there
is more understanding of it and
perhaps a little appreciation of it."
4) Stalinism is dead in the So-
viet Union, forever. He believes
that in time Russia will be demo-
cratic in the sense that the people
will run their government.
5) The United States and Russia
are "remarkably near each other"
on the question of disarmament.
Slight differences can be easily
ironed out, but. the big problem
is to create mutual trust.
