Republicans
Propose New
Commission
The Ann Arbor Republican Party
platform, announced yesterday,
calls for the establishment of a
Human Relations Commission.
Acting on an advisory basis, the
Commission would educate and
report to the council on breaches
of the present law and would sug-
gest new ones.
Another recommendation is to
continue explorations of "fiscal
relations between the Universityj
and Ann Arbor."
The Republicans would like a'
vote of the people to determine
whether a public bus system
should be inaugurated if a private
concern does not operate one.
City expansion through annexa-;
tion is another proposal. Drainage
areas, however, must be considered
before annexation, the- platform
says.
A public information program
planned and aided by the city ad-
ministration is proposed. An an-
nual report would include a book-
let of facts about the city.
r The ' platform also included
recommendations'or balancing the
budget, providing necessary capital
for vial necessities, and enforcing
present housing laws.

INDONESIAN HOUSING:

Prof. Larso
By RICHARD ASCH
Four dark-skinned natives were
dogtrotting along a dirt road.
On their shoulders they carried
two bamboo poles from which a
new electric refrigerator was
swinging.
This is how Prof. Theodore C.
Larson of the architecture and de-
sign school exhuberantly des-
cribed scenes of the antique and
Oriental mixed with the modern
in Indonesia, "a very exciting
place."
Prof. Larson recently returned
from a four-month visit to Indo-
nesia and a world-wide tour.

The winner of an

Nomination for his

in another great portrayal
The True Story ofj
COL. DEAN HESS9,

His visit to Indonesia involved
a project contracted with the
University via the Architecture
and Design College by the United
Nations and its divisions, UNTAA
(United Nations Technical Assis-
tance Administration) and hous-
ing and towning country plan-
ning, a social studies branch of
the Secretariat.
The contract called for giving
technical assistance to the Indo-
nesians on housing planning and
designing and engineering re-
search. Prof. Stephen Constantine
Anastasius Paraskevopoulos, of
the architecture school, who
worked with Prof. Larson in In-
donesia, is remaining there until
the contract expires.
Prof. A. Benjamin Handler of
the architecture school was "an-
chor man" here at the University.
Serve as Advisors
In Indonesia, the visiting Uni-
versity professors served as ad-
visors on socio-economic matters
involving housing and made rec-
ommendations for the specific
program of action to be under-
taken by the Regional Housing
Center.,
The centre is located in Band-
ung, the site of the scientific and
engineering facilities of the Uni-
verstiy of Indonesia.
The Bandung Centre gives ar-
chitects and constructors techni-
cal advice on housing and town
building.
It also carries on social and eco-
nomic studies concerning the liv-
ing requirements and needs of the
people on the islands.
Centre Activities
Activities of the Centre can be
illustrated by technological re-
search aimed at developing new
systems of house construction
that will uitlize new materials to
be produced industrially.
The Institute for Industrial Re-
search is now experimenting with
wall boards which make use of the
coconut shells and fibers 'left over
from the manufacture of soap.
The Institute approaches the
housing centre in order to find
out what should be the size of

-Daily-Len Cyr
UN ADVISOR-Prof. Larson, recently returned from his visit to
Indonesia, discusses the natives' eagerness to learn. "Ten years
ago most of the islanders were illiterate-now there is a great
drive to read, but a shortage of books," he said.

these wall boards and what is
their potential market.
The Centre does research con-
cerning market demand for these
wall boards. It educates the peo-
ple about this new material and
about new archtiecture using wall
boards.
Potential Resources
Another example of the Centre's
function also deals with this fo-
cus on creating an Indonesian
architecture, using the islands'
own potential natural resources
and serving the islanders' own
needs.
Primitive architecture did
achieve this. But the Centre is
not interested in using raw ma-
terials as the natives did. It seeks
to develop new materials that can
be industrially produced from the
raw materials.
During Dutch domination of
Indonesia the foreigners intro-
duced architecture to which they
were accustomed in the Nether-
lands.
These villas had high-pitched
roofs to hold heavy snow, but
there is no heavy snow in Indo-
nesia. Nevertheless, the Dutch
were highly esteemed, and the In-
donesians copied their architec-
ture.
This architecture, however, was
not suited for Indonesian condi-
tions. The villas were constructed
without means of ventilation in
order to withstand the cold Euro-

pean wind. Indonesia is dry and
hot.
Recently the first plant was
completed for the production of
cement. Since these Indonesian
islands are volcanic, they are rich
with raw materials for this prod-
uct. Now a structural system nust
be developed that makes use of
cement.
Research institutes on the Uni-
versity of Indonesia campus ale
experimenting with development
of light weight concrete. Their re-
search will be pooled by the
Bandung Centre, which will create
a new architecture using this new
material.
The Centre does not participate
in actual architectural work or
building. It provides technical
training to Indonesian staff mem-
bers so they may take over the
Centre's functions.
"It is hoped that the staff mem-
bers come to the United States to
study," Prof. Larson remarked. He
suggested we have an opportunity
to learn from this collaboration.
Developed Culturally
"Indonesians may be underde-
veloped in a technological sense
but not in a cultural sense. As we
provide technical assistance and
Indonesia develops in its own way,
catching up to us, we stand to
benefit in a practical and intellec-
tual sense.
Prof. Larson enthusiastically
reported that Indonesians are
very receptive to new ideas. "What
they plan to do in 20 years we
did in 200 years. They learn from
us how to tackle problems and
seek to create their own indige-
nous architecture."
