Slote Claims 'Birds-Eye View' of 'U'
By SARAH DRASIN
"A real birds-eye view of a great
University," is what Alfred Slote
gets in his Job as writer-producer
for the University television stu-
Slote Is a University graduate,
Phi Beta Kappa recipient, major
Hopwood winner, Fulbright schol-
ar, novelist and teacher. His wife,
Henrietta Slote, is also a major
Hopwood winner, Fulbright scholar
"The activity at this studio Is
simply amazing," he remarked.
"During a week, one nas a chance
to work with the Stanley Quartet,
people from aerodyxamics or
mathematics, a progra:. on psy-
chological or healt" problems."
"The scope of this job," he add-
ed, "makes it a continually won-
derful exp ience."
Coming here last August from
three years of teaching English
at Williams College, Slote noted
that his job is a bit different from
his last one.
"University television Is an edu-
cational institution," Slote ex-
plains. "My job here is primarily
to work with faculty and help
them project to the television au-
"Trying to get a message across
to a small class is a far cry from
speaking to two or three million
people which is often our ultimate
viewing audience. I try to help
them say what they want to say
in the best way possible," he add-
"What we try to do here," Slote
continued, "is to 'bring the Uni-
versity to the people. There are
many who just cannot come to
college, but whom we can get to
Large Variety of Subjects
Slote noted the large variety of
subject matter he has covered
since August. "I started out with
a 15-week marriage series," he
stated, "moved to the state capitol
for another series, and we've just
finished doing a series on France
for which we traveled to the U.N.
in New York."
"We covereverything here from
mother-in-law problems to guber-
natorial problems," he commented
The University set-up is not a
sending studio, Slote emphasized,
but programs ae filmed and sent
out to be used on educational or
commercial stations. They are also
used, he noted, as audio-visual
Students Play Large Part
University students also play a
large part in the studio opera-
tions, Slote explained. All techni-
cians, cameramen, floor assistants
and junior production people are
Every Monday and Friday,
speech classes take over the studio.
"So you see," Slote says, "the stu-
dent also plays a large part in our
"As far as quality goes," Slote
continued, "speaking strictly as a
newcomer in the TV field, I would
say that the quality of our films is
far superior to that of other college
studios. I would even say that they
are often better than network pro-

JACK-OF-ALL-TRADES-and master of all, is Alfred Slote,
producer-writer at the University television studios. Slote, a Uni-
versity gr duate, was a major Hopwood winner, Phi Beta Kappa
recipient, and Fulbright scholar.
television production, Slote admits
that he has another love-writing.
He has published two novels since
1953, "Denham Proper," a portrait
of a family, and "Lazarus in Vien-
na," a story of post-war Vienna.
The latter has just been trans-
lated into Spanish.
The young author gained a great
deal of experience here at the Uni-
versity where he majored in Eng-
lish, received his master's degree'
and worked as a teaching fellow in

In First Week
In its first week of formal op-
eration, the Ann Arbor Transit,
Inc., found itself "in the black,"
according to John W. Rae, com-
Although the margin appears
small, there was a return of $21.95,
Rae reported. This resulted after
payments of more than $125 to
each driver and a $189 payment
on a bank loan.
The company is still in need of
stock subscriptions, Rae said, and
checks are being accepted. These
subscriptions are needed, he con-
tinued, to enable the firm to re-
duce the outstanding loan
Rae also announced that a cur-
rent plan is in effect to deter-
mine the extent of patronage on

1949, Slote studied with Roy Cow-
den whom he termed, "certainly
one of the finest teachers of Writ-
ing in the country." Upon gradua-
tion, he spent several years in
Europe, one on a Fulbright schol-
arship studying comparative liter-
"I had never really considered
television writing and producing
before," Slote states. "The only
work I had done in this field was
as a student here when I wrote
radio plays as a sort of 'comic
relief' from my 'heavier responsi-
"I certainly enjoyed it," Slote
went on, "and Garnet Garrison,
director of . University television,
remembered me. He wrote and
asked if I would be interested in
'this young adventure of educa-
tional television', and I took the

"It's certainly a far cry from
teaching the 'Aeneid', or 'Paradise
Lost', Slote noted, "and greatly
worthwhile. But perhaps someday,
even 'Paradise Lost' will find its
way onto educational television."
Slote leaned earnestly forward.
"I believe very deeply that the
University has a mission which
they can fulfill through television
- a mission of bringing good
things to people."
"Sure it has its limitations,"
Slote continued. "It's not going to
solve all the problems of the

opportunity for people seriously
interested in idealistic rather than
commercial writing. Here is an
