Council president, has led his organization through a crucial year.
Also serving. on the Residence Hall Board of Governors, he has
found his activities time consuming but "fun."

was "mickey mouse," some indica-
tion of where most of the credit
should go for IHC's actions.
Takes Much Time
As is the case with most stu-
dents in activities, most of
Duane's time was taken up with
his job' as IC president and the
often , hectic job of keeping up
with his studies.
Duane, perhaps slightly rueful-
ly, sees two results of student ac-
tivities: learning how to allocate
time wisely and studying effec-
"I can't see how people who
aren't working or in activities can
help but get a three point," Duane
Although now almost complete-
ly retired as IHC president (he
still serves on the Residence Hall
Board of Governors), he has'
done both. This year, Duane has
held a part-time job scoring the-
matic apperception tests for the
Institute of Social Research.
Duane got the job because of his
interest in psychology.
Psychology was interesting
enough for Duane to choose it as
his major. The "freedom of ex-
pression" it:offered. plus the fas-
cination 'of working in a new' and
growing field, attracted him to
psychology. He contrasts psychol-
ogy with fields where "if you don't
say what the instructor wants,
Duane plans to go on to Wayne
State University- medical school
After four years in residence
halls and much work in residence
hall student government, Duane
has some - definite ideas on the
system. He says that more facul-
ty participation in residence halls
would improve the system. There
are too many administrative de-
tails to handle for a faculty mem--
ber to be a resident advisor, Duane
said. But it would be beneficial if
faculty members could make it
part of their routine to eat dinner
in residence halls.
"I feel we definitely should go
into upper class housing," Duane
said. When expansion comes,
Duane says that a suite arrange-
ment of rooms should be adopted
for the new residence halls,
Upper class and graduate hous-
ing, besides providing advantages
to the student "might provide- a
ready source of staff personnel,"
according to Duane.
Close to Students
Duane has tried, while an TC
officer "to get some feeling of
what prevailing student opinion
is." He has attempted to talk to
house presidents as often as pos-
sible and to other students.
"If I'm aware of prevailing stu-
dent opinion on a subject;" Duane
said, "I'll try to represent it as ac-
curately as I can to members of
the Administration. I
But he reserves the right to vote
as he sees best.
Student government "has to do
more than plan dances," he said.
"Student goveriment in resi-
dence halls should work to im-
prove the kind of living offered
to students," Duane explained.
"This leads to basic considera-
tions that only the administration
has information on, and there is'
a point at which- you just have
to accept the Administration's
word," Duane said.
When asked what he does in
his "spare time," Duane looked
up and'smiled. "I like to read,"
he said, "and listen to classical
In spite of all the time Duane
has spent in student activities,
would he change anything if he
had a chance to do it again?
One remark that he made at
a Cooley House meeting, where a
house issue was being hotly de-
bated, illustrates Duane's point
"Would it be better if student
government was done away
with?" he was asked.
'It would be easier," Duane
said, "but it wouldn't be as muchj

A death in the middle of De-
cember robbed Ann Arbor of a
traffic fatality free year in 1957
according to Lt. Harrison Schlupe,
head of Ann Arbor's police traffic
The city had a total of 912 re-
portable accidents in 1957, Lieut.
Schlupe continued, compared to
702 in 1956, but two less fatalities.
"The total number of accidents
reflects the number of cars on the
road," he said. The number of
vehicles driving in Ann Arbor in-
creases every year, he continued.
Cover More Territory
"We also cover more territory
than we did last year," he said.
"Ann Arbor's a big place. From
city limit to city limit it is about
eight by five miles."
Ann Arbor's traffic record has
been very good, Lieut. Schlupe
said. "From 1946 to 1956 we have
had only 10 traffic accident fatali-
He said that the accident rate
will probably continue to rise.
"There's not much you can do
about it. We have about 60,000
cars in use in the Ann Arbor area
now and the National Traffic
Safety Council predicts that 40,-
000 people will die in 1958."
Urges Driver Training
Lieut. Schlupe emphasized the
need for increased attention to
the driver education program.
Although people are continually
asking for traffic signs and lights,
he continued, these devices are
not always the best way to pre-
At a meeting of the Central
Committee yesterday, "Anything
Goes" was chosen as the 1958
Soph Show production.
The show, with music and lyrics
by Cole Porter, will be presented
in November, according to Linda
Heywood, '61, and Robert Vollen,
"Anything Goes," a musical
comedy involving mistaken iden-
tities aboard an ocean liner will-
feature such musical numbers as
"You're- the Tops," "Anything
Goes," "All Through the Night,"
"Blow, Gabriel, Blow," and "I Get
'a Kick Out of You."
A mass meeting for everyone
who is interested in working on
the Soph Show is scheduled for
7:15 p.m. on September 23, the
chairmen added. Production plans
for the show will be completed at
"Bad driving is like any other
criminal behavior," Prof. E. Lowell
Kelly of the psychology depart-
ment said at a meeting on 'Medi-
cal Aspects of Highway Safety."
Society has a peculiar willing-
ness to pamper guilty drivers. To-
gether with the newspapers, it
places the blame for accidents not
on the driver, but on mechanical
failure of the car.
Kelly pointed to progress being
made in highway construction,
the reduction of mechanical
weaknesses of automobiles and
improved safety designs. "But," he
pointed out, "we spend practically
nothing for research on the hu-
man factors of accident-condu-
He recommended a study of
"the kinds of behavior and the
kinds of people" that:produce ac-
cidents. "Poor drivers usually turn
out to be poor citizens in other
ways," he said.
Kelly told the meeting, "Until
we get across the idea that bad
driving is just as anti-social as
any other criminal behavior, we
are not going to make much pro-
gress toward better licensing and
better law enforcement."
