GAYLORD - Student Loan Funds were increased by $200,000
cash yesterday by University Regents' action,
The $200,000 cash gift to the University was part of a $505,014.88
bequest of the late Stanley D. McGraw of Detroit, an 1892 University
The securities received, which comprise the rest of the bequest,
will go toward establishing an endowment fund, the Stanley D. Mc-
Graw Scholarship fund, to be used for student scholarships.
The bequest will raise the total of the student loan funds to $1,-
300,000. However, $200,000 of this total is sharply restricted by special
-. . . stipulations. According, to Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis, loan funds have
been nearly exhausted this year.
.... He thought the additional $200,-
000 would probably be adequate
Sfor next year.
However, Secretary to the Presi-

that the amount of funds avail=-

depend on how suoccessful students
* were in finding summer jobs.
Repayment date for student

"Grouping of Elements"
It was reported- in Cairo that

'U' Pleased
With Heyns'
The University seemed pleased
yesterday with the advancement
of Prof. Roger W. Heyns of the
psychology department to the posi-
tion of dean of the literary college.
Prof. E. Lowell Kelly, chairman
of the psychology department, said
"the department regrets losing
Prof. Heyns, but our loss is the
college's gain."
"Pleased" with the appointment
of Prof. Heyns, Prof._ Amos H.
Hawley, chairman of the sociology
department, believed his "adminis-
trative experience, knowledge of
the University's policies and a
good philosophy on the faculty
situation," combined to make an
"excellent choice."
Prof. James K. Pollock, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, was, "delighted-. that
President Harlan Hatcher had
selected a young member of the
University faculty who is well-
acquainted both with the college
and with the state situation."
Looking forward to "an effec-
tive administration of the literary
college," Prof. Wesley H. Maurer,
chairman of the journalism de-
partment, commented that Prof.
Heyn's "familiarity with the rela-
tionship of the literary college to
the University," his "concern for
faculty interest" and his adminis-
trative experience are factors
which combine to make a good
Claims Show
Sharp Decline
ernment reported yesterday that
insured unemployment among
workers protected for jobless bene-
fits showed a sharp drop of 93,300
during the week of May 10.
This brought the figure down to
It was the biggest weekly de-
cline since August 1956. The Labor
Department's Bureau of Employ-
ment Security also reported that
initial claims for benefits declined
by 49,400 to 359,200 during the
week ended May 17.
The improvements in insured
unemployment and benefit claims
are tempered by the fact, officials
said, that a large number of idled
workers have exhausted their
rights to benefits.

Local Man'
George W. Salade, Ann Arbor
representative to the state legis-
lature, announced yesterday that
he will seek re-election.
Sallade, who recently took him-
self out of the governorship elec-
tion picture, will try for a third
term in the House of Representa-
'He said in a statement he had
decided against running for any
other state administrative post or
for the state Senate.
Sallade will be a candidate for
his party's nomination in the
August 5th primary election for
representative of W a s h t e n a w
county's first district. So far he
is the only person in his party to
announce candidacy for that post.
He said, "Regardless of the out-
come of the coming election, con-
trol of the House of Representa-
tives by either party will be on
a narrow basis."
Pflimlin AsKs
French, Unity
PARIS OP) - Premier Pflimlin
went directly to the French people
on TV last night with an appeal
for unity in his Parliament-sup-
ported program to win back the
insurgent French ruling Algeria.
The Algiers regime meanwhile
hardened its demands for replace-
ment of Pflimlin with Gen. Charles
de Gaulle.
Parliament apparently went
along with = Pflimlin's plea for
stronger executive power to cope
with the grave divisive crisis across
the Mediterranean. The National
Assembly agreed to take up the
plea Tuesday.,
The nationwide TV speech, a
rare thing for a French premier,
came shortly after establishment
of what amounts to a revolution-
ary regime by the civilian-mili-
tary junta in Algeria.
The Algiers regime once again
vowed to rule Algeria until-Gen.
de Gaulle is in power.
Pflimlin warned all Frenchmen
the nation risks being torn apart
unless all unite to support the
legally constituted government.
He urged government reforms,
but said such changes must be
made in order and legality.
"It would not be admissible,"
the Premier declared, "that, a frac-
tion of the nation try to impose
its will on the entire nation."
Pflimlin did not mention Gen.
de Gaulle by name.
