To Hold Fraternity Rush Meeting
From 550 to 600 men are ex-
pected, to rush this spring, Kolb
said. Last fall 1138 rushed. Of
those rushing this spring, he con-

For the graduate students in
social work, field work is an "ex-
pensive but vital" part of train-
ing, Prof. Eleanor G. Cranefield
of the School of Social Work said
During the ;past 20 years, the
University School of Social Work
has arranged to give its graduate
students practical experience in
working with clients, through
both public and private social
agencies, Prof. Cranefield ex-
All candidates for master's de-
grees in social work must com-
plete three semesters of field work,
and beginning next year, they will
be required to complete four se-
mesters, she said.
The students are assigned part-
time to 51 agencies, such as medi-
cal and psychiatric hospitals and
clinics, courts, institutions, pub-
lic welfare agencies, community
welfare councils, community cen-
ters and family and children's
At present, 128 students are
working in these agencies, one-
third of which are in the Ann Ar-
bor area, one-third in Detroit, and
the remaining third in outstate
cities, such as Saginaw, Flint, To-
ledo, Lansing and Grand Rapids,
Prof. Cranefield continued.
The assignments are selected
for their educational content, and
students work as regular agency
employees, she explained. They
receive close supervision from a
member of the agency who is
chosen by the School of Social
Work as a field instructor.
Most students are not reim-
bursed for their work, Prof.
Cranefield added, although some
agencies provide fellowships.

The United States should uu-
dertake immediately a program
to encourage "basic' research and
superior education in the soc1aj
sciences and humanities as WeU
as in the sciences," University
President Harlan Katcher tld
members of the University
Michigan Club in Fort Lauder-
"Admittedly this would be '
bold move which would seem to
run against the tenor of th
times," Hatcher said.
Answer in Education i-
"In the long run, however, I can
think of no single act which would
draw a clearer distinction b-
tween our system of education and
that of Russia, between- our goa's
and theirs, nor one which would
more dramatically call to the at-
tention of the free world the v _
ues which mark the difference be-
tween a democratic society and a
Hatcher said that the long
range answer to the problem of
scientific and technological Su-
premacy lies in the classrooms and
laboratories of the schools and.
colleges, and in particular, in the
institutions of higher education
rather than in crash programs to
develop bigger and better missiles,
"In the 'urgencies of the mo-
ment,' however, it is imperative
not to overlook progress towards
the general well-being of man-
kind," Hatcher added.
Advantages of Democracy
"A democratic society, one
aroused to a threat such as that'
posed by the USSR, has within it
inherent forces for action, for
creative imagination, and for de-
votion whichndictatorships for a1l
their drive and efficiency cannot
match," he said.
"The wellspring of these forces
is the education system which I
for one have no doubt will again
justify the confidence we have
placed in it as the fundamental'
bulwark of a democratic govern-
ment," Hatcher concluded.
City To Study

The city 'returned to two-way
traffic after a similar program was
set up about ten years ago. Bsi-
ness interests had objected .to the
one-way street plan.
The street sections involved in
the present study would be be-
tween W. William on the south
and Miller on the north.
A one-way system for Ashley
and First sections would coincide
with the one-way sections of
Fourth and Fifth Avenues on the
east side of Main St.
Traffic moves north on Fourth
and south on Fifth.
Burns said the one-way sectionts
on the west side of Main would
take some of the traffic from
Fourth and Fifth Avenues and
would reduce traffic across Main.
