Regents List Criteria for Promotion

WASHINGTON (P) - A far-.
reaching overhaul of the United
States defense setups concentrating
control over military( money and
missions in the secretary of de-
fense, was proposed to Congress
yesterday by President Dwight D.
Signalling the start of what may
be a historic fight on Capitol Hill,
President Eisenhower emphasized
that major reorganization is neces-
sary to end interservice bickering
and promote fighting efficiency.
Outlines Program
He outlined his aims in this
"Strategic and tactical planning
must be completely unified, com-
bat forces organized into unified
commands, each equipped with the
most efficient weapons systems
that science can develop, singly
led and prepared to fight as one,
regardless of service."
The presi4ential message pro-
duced some approving comment
but also rumblings of doubt in a
Congress where each of the three
armed services has its champions.
Broad Proposals
The proposals were broader than
any of the several reorganizations
made in the decade since military
unification was started.
"We must remove all doubts as
to the full authority of the secre-
tary of defense," President Eisen-
hower said.
For example, President Eisen-
hower proposed that while the an-
nual appropriations would be made
by categories of functions, the ac-
tual appropriations would be made
to the defense secretary, to be al-
located among the services.
City Election
To:Fill Five
Council Seats
Five city councilmen will be pro-
duced from an estimated 8,000
votes Monday as Ann Arbor citi-
zens go to the polls in the city's
regular spring election.
Also on the ballot is a proposal
to annex the Ann Arbor Hills sub-
division to the city.
Incumbents will be seeking to
retain their office in all but the
fourth ward; where Republican
councilman Ronald E. Hinterman
is nit running for re-election. At-
tempting to keep their seats will
be Democrat Richard Dennard and
Republicans Russel Burns, Clan
Crawford, Jr., and James Brinker-
Brinkerhoff was appointed to
the Council February 20 to fill out
the unexpired term of F. A. C.
Davis, who moved from the city.
Hoping to gain new positions are
Republican Harry Mial and Demo-
crats Lloyd M. Ives, A. Nelson
Dingle and Weston Vivian.

De-emphasizing clear-cut party
policy differences on the local
level, city Republican Committee
chairman Kenneth H. MacDonald
said recently "people know a lot
about what's going on in Ann Ar-
bor city gavernment because of ex-
cellent coverage by the press and

The University has declined to
reveal individual salaries on the
grounds that it could lead to dis-
cord between instructors with
comparable positions but unequal
pay. Officials say they have been
shown no good reason for divulging
individual salaries but add that

plied to the State Legislature on
If an Instructor has not been
promoted to assistant professor
after five years of service, he "will
ordinarily be advised to consider
the desirability of finding employ-
ment elsewhere."

HAVANA (W-)-The Cuban government is ready to grant amnesty
to Fidel Castro's rebels if they will lay down their arms, Prime Minister
Gonzalo Quell said last night.
His offer to compromise with Castro came less than 24 hours after
the regime met rebel strike threats with drastic decrees authorizing
workers to kill anyone interfering with their jobs.
Rebels in Minority
Prime Minister Guell declared the rebels were a minority group
opposed to the desires of the people, but he said the government of

The same holds for an associate
professor who has not been pro-
moted to assistant after six years,
the statement says. Associate pro-
fessor is usually a position of "in-
determinate tenure"
Lack of Openings
An Associate professor's failure
to be promoted may not be due to
a lack of ability, but rather a lack
of openings above him in the de-
partment, the statement says.
In both the literary and engi-
neering colleges procedures for
promotion begin on the depart-
mental level.
According to Prof. Amos Haw-
ley, chairman of the sociology
department, service, is not alone a
sufficient basis for promotion. The
emphasis is placed on teaching
and scholarship.
"Distinguished service gives add-
ed weight to a recommendation
for promotion," he explained.
Committee Meets
When the time limit approaches
for consideration of a person's
appointment to a higher rank, the
executive committee of the de-
partment meets to consider him,
Prof. Hawley said.
When a person is appointed to
the tenure position of associate
professor, the whole staff is con-
su'lted, particularly those in the
department who already hold ten-
For promotion to assistant pro-
fessor, the sociology department,
for example, requires that the in-
dividual be a good teacher, and
"show promise of research pro-
ductivity," Prof. Hawley declared.

The graduates' group also
passed a motion asking for an ex-

an office in the Student Ativi-

Members of the graduate coun-

undergraduate point of view, and
the graduates should not be gov-

To Be Given


Protesters Hold Vigil Under Flagpole
"I think it did what we wanted," Prof. Kenneth E. Boulding of
the economics department said.
He was referring to a "vigil of penitence" held yesterday by a
small group in protest against continued atomic testing by the United
States. As planned, at least one person stood under the flagpole
near the Diagonal throughout the day. "All we wanted to do was
set people to thinking," Prof. Boulding said. "We don't want to stir
up a lot of mass emotion, but we do want people to think about this

A list of tentative principles on
what a basic calendar should con-1
tain will be made public shortly
after vacation, according to James
D. Shortt of the University Rela-
tions office, and secretary of the
University Calendar Committee.1
Eight hundred of the 13001
schools questioned by the com-
mittee about their calendars have1
responded, according to Shortt,
and the committee is now studying
their answers.
The ,university committee was
set up by University President
Harlan Hatcher in January to1
study the calendar with an eye
toward recommending a new pro-
gram by summer.
Not Quite Satisfied
The letters from almost all,
other schools. seem to have one
thing in common. They are not
quite satisfied with their present
There are exceptions to this.
The dean of North Carolina State
College reports that two years
ago a special committee of that
school worked out a list of calen-
dar principles and by applying
this list to planned calendars,
everything works out well.
These principles include:
1) Semester length should be
as close to 90 academic days as
possible - including registration
and examination -but not days
of counseling and orientation.
Need Balance
2) There should be a balance
between spring and fall semesters
and between Monday, Wednesday,
and Friday class sequences and
Tuesday, Thursdaysand Saturday

Approve Capital Outlay Bill
Passage of the bill followed ap-
proval earlier in the day of a sep-
arate capital outlay appropriation
bill to be paid from the sttae gen-
erAl funds. Included is $1,175,000
for completion of the University's
Medical Science Building and
$340,000 for electrical renovations
and food and other services at
University Hospital.
In the mental health bill, also
okayed by the Senate, was a $1,-
600,000 allotment to the Univer-
sity for operation of three psychi-
atric units.
The Senate also passed and sent
to the House a drastically re-
duced higher education operation-
al money bill. Passage followed
vain attempts by Democratic sen-
ators to bring the bill up to Gov.
0. Mennen Williams' request.

A recommendation of $30,000,-
000 for 1958-59 University opera-

does not include a capital outlay
A five-man authority would
administer the new building
plan, and would be empowered to
issue revenue bonds for exchange
with United States bonds held by
the Veteran's Trust Fund estab-
lished in 1946.
This money will then be avail-,
able to the Authority to loan to
state supported colleges, universi-
ties and junior colleges for use on
projects expressly approved by
legislative resolution.
Must Pay Fees
The schools would be obliged to
pay lease fees to the Authority
out of funds annually appropriat-
ed by the Legislature for bond in-
terest and retirement.
It was on the point of getting
money from the Veteran's Trust
Fund that Sen. Lewis G. Christ-
man (R-Ann Arbor) disagreed
with the bill's author, Sen. Faulk-
Sen. Christman said the bill
would be, in effect, contracting
a debt in excess of the limit of
$250,000 authorized by the state
Question, Constitutionality
Other opponents questioned the
bill's constitutionality, and one of
them, Sen. Clarence F. Graebner
(R-Saginaw), called it a "hoax on
the public."
The bills will go to the House

week (probably Tuesday accord-

One person, at least, was thinking. A naval ROTC captain, pass-
ing the scene, halted to assail Prof. Boulding for speaking as he did
about his country directly beneath an American flag. "Are you just
trying to be clever?" the captain asked.
"I'm darned tired of being clever," Prof. Boulding retorted. Later,
however, Prof. Boulding reported they had had a "nice little chat."
Along these lines, Prof. Boulding said he "felt satisfied. I think
many students felt a little concerned," he said. "No one was laugh-
ing. Everyone took it in the spirit in which we were doing it. I felt
rather proud of the students there."
A bit more dubious, William Livant, one of the group, said, "there
is very little evidence as to whether it was successful or not. "It is
very difficult to measure when people are thinking," he said.
