UIST SPEAKS HERE:
el Must Adjust to Less Foreign Aid,

SUSAN HOLTZER
asic problem the Israeli
must face is adjusting
the time when the tiny
no longer receives the
ounts of foreign aid it is
ing.
Abba P. Lerner of the
opkins University, one-
nomic adviser to the Is-
ermnent, said yesterday
the only solution to "Is-
ost pressing economic,
is industrial development

much the same situation

then, must follow the
lead, he said, and con-
production on a long and
t of small items. By build-
ts trade with other na-
he country could then

export these items for the raw
materials it cannot itself produce.
But a program of this type, Prof.'
Lerner explained, is entirely un-,
suitable for central planning.
"This kind of development can
only be done by Israel becoming
more capitalistic," he said. "It
must come -from large numbers of
individual enterprises." i
He further narrowed down the
list of Israel's possible industries
by saying they must limit them-
selves to the manufacture of those
items which do not' need very
heavy materials, for this would
bring them up against the stone
wall of Israel's limited tranlsporta-
tion facilities outside her borders.
He mentioned the growing man-
ufacture of transistors as an ex-
Music Festival
Closes Today
The eighteenth annual Chamber
Music Festival will close today
with the final performance of the
Budapest String Quartet at 2:30
p.m. in the Rackham Lecture Hall.
This afternoon's program will
include "Quartet in B Flat Major,"
by Bethoqven; "Quintet in E Flat,"
by Mozatt; and "Quartet No. 3,"
by Hindemith.

ample of a valuable, yet light-
weight commodity.
A second method of expanding
Israel's economy, the acquisition
of foreign investments, runs into
what Prof. Lerner calls Israel's
"greatest shortage--entrepreneurs
and managers," and the restric-
tions placed on money coming
from outside the country.
Money Limits Placed
"We should tell foreign investors
they can remove their money any
time they please," he said. Cur-
rently, the government has placed
limits on. the amount of money
which may be withdrawn within
a year.
Another factor contributing to
Israel's economic problems, Prof.
Lerner said, is the need to assimi-
late the tens of thousands of im-
migrants who flock into the coui-
try each year, The current. esti-
mate of this year's total is 50,000;
population as a whole has grown
from 60,000 to about two million
since the state was. formed in
1948.
More Selective
Although the government has
become more selective in recent
years, requhring immigrants to pay,
their own way over, Prof. Lerner
said it still .constituted "a serious
problem. However," he added, "this
is the reason for the existence of
Israel."

'U' To Aid
Six Counties
In Survey
Six southeastern Michigan coun-
ties are launching a study of pop-
ulation growth with the aid of the
University and a $25,000 Ford
Foundation grant.
Social, economic and govern-
mental aspects of growth in
Wayne, Washtenaw, Macomb,
Monroe, Oakland and St. Claim
counties will be investigated by
the newly formed Southeastern
Michigan Metropolitan Commun-
ity Research Corporation.
Working with the committee,
according to telephone company
executive William Day, its chair-
man, will be the University, the
Supervisors Inter-County Com-
mittee, Michigan State University,
Wayne State University, and the
University of Detroit, as various
business, labor and community
leaders.
University President Harlan
Hatcher is serving on Day's Citi-
zens Committee while Vice-Presi-
dent William Stirton is secretary.
Tentative areas of study include
physical factors such as sewers,
transportation and building codes,
economic factors, social factors,
governmental factors and prepara-
tion of rural residents for city life.

By JEAN HARTWIG
"Reliance on the crutches of,
class lectures or on textbooks is
the worst possible kind of prepara-
tion for adult reading in the Unit-
ed States today."
This contention was made .by;
Ralph E. Ellsworth, director of
libraries at the University of Colo-
rado in a paper submitted to the
Conference on the Undergraduate
and the Lifetime Reading Habit.
Held at University
The conference, sponsored. by
the University and the National
Book Committee, was held at the
University Feb. 21 and 22 in con-
junction with the dedication of
the new Undergraduate Library.
Thirty leading educators, li-
brarians and representatives of the
book publishing field, also attend-
ed the dedication ceremony and:
celebration dinner Friday.
Methods Criticized
Criticizing present university
teaching methods, Ellsworth main-
tained, "they don't require any
real mental 'brain stretching' on
the part of the student."
During the conference, the pur-
pose of which was to instill the
habit of free reading in under-
graduate students, a review of re-
search on the reading habits of
college students was submitted.
LesteryAsheim, Dean of the
fT~niversity of Chicago Graduate
Library School, reported that most
college students read astonishingly
few books in their undergraduate

years. "And about 15 out of every
hundred students apparently can
spend a whole year in college with-.
out cracking a library book at all,"
Asheim added.
But, he continued, there is nol
appreciative correlation between
scholastic standing and library;
use, although students with higher
scholastic ratings tend to do more
"free" reading.
The student on the other end of
the scale does almost no ndn-
curricular reading on his own.
Reading Increases
Reading does tend to increase as
the student progresses through
college, Asheim concluded. This is
chiefly due to an increased experi-
ence with books during his aca-
demic program and his advancing
maturity.
August Heckscher, Director of
the Twentieth Century Fund, re-
ported on the social and cultural
background of reading in America
as it influences the college student.
"America is not a book-reading
country, and the modern college is
the American .community writ
small. The complaint of the Amer-
ican college, has been lack of lei-
sure," August Heckscher, director
of the Twentieth Century Fund,
said.
"There is not enough time for
reading, notenough for thinking
or for pursuing the quiet errands
of the mind which should be at the
heart of the educational process,"
he said.

Ellsworth Attacks Lectures, BookE

Advocating the advancement of
the status of the superior student,
Prof. Robert C. Angell, Director of
the University Honors Council, re-
ported, "This strategy flows from
two hynotheses--that the superior
student is likely to be a voracious
reader and that, if we can some-

how heighten their repute amon
their fellows, the process of emula
tion will set in."
William C. Steere of Stanfoi
University called the Universil
Undergraduate Library a "majo
advance in the development o
educational methods so urgent
recommended."
