A grantee must qualify for post-

Will Cover Expenses
The grants will vary, said Prof.
Henderson, but in general it is
expected that they will provide
the teaching fellow with suffi-
cient funds to live in Ann Arbor
and to care for his expenses, sub-
ject to a reasonable maximum.
This amount may in many cases
approximate the current salary,
plus necessary travel expenses.
Considerations will be given to
applications for a semester or oth-
er shorter term; however, the
normal term of a fellowship will
be the academic year. From three
to seven of these fellowships will
be granted each year, beginning
with September, 1958..-
Applicants are requested to sub-
mit a plan of study at the Uni-
versity, of rel''vance to the admin-
istration of higher education.-
This plan will include partici-
pation in a seminar or courses on
higher education and may include
other courses and seminars in the
graduate and professional schools
of the University, research on
some problems of higher educa-
tion, reading or part-time intern-
ship experiences.
Study Theory,Methods
The purpose of the plan, de-
clared Prof. Henderson should be
to prepare the individual for a
career in college or university ad-

better acquainted with such things
as the primary trends in higher
education, theories of learning
and of curricdlum planning, and
methods of organizing, adminis-

Broadening of the Alumni Stu-
dent Leadership Exchange Fellow-
ship program would be beneficial,
according to this year's fellow Lew
Engman, '57.
Engman is spending the aca-
demic year at University College
of London, England. A British his-
tory student, Michael Head, Grad.,
is studying here for the year.
Writing to International Cen-
ter Director James M. Davis, Eng-
man described the operation of
the program as "excelle'nt, at least
insofar as it concerns me." The
exchange student was vice-presi-
dent of SGC last year.
Get Special Attention
Engman explained adjustment
to the British college was made'
much easier by special attention
given him. He was aided by the
registrar at the beginning of the
year. "As a result," he wrote, "I
had fewer problems in this regard
than most of the other students
Engman's field of specialization
at University College is economics.
He is also attending classes in the
laws faculty, studying the English
legal system. Much of his time is
spent at the London School of
Economics, he said in the letter,
writing a paper on economic is-
sues connected with the develop-
ment of nuclear power.
Fellowship Valuable
The fellowship is particularly
valuable, Engman indicated, be-
cause of progress made by the
British in peaceful use of the
atom. "Fortunately," he con-
tinued, "I have been able to ex-
amine it throngh direct contactsj
with the United Kingdom Atomic
Energy Authority and some of its
consulting firms as well as by

Despite his heavy academic
schedule, Engman is maintaining
his interest in extracurricular ac-
tivities, the letter indicated.

Need License
A requirement that county resi-
dential contractors be licensed by
the Michigan Corporation and
Securities Commission was passed
this week by the Washtenaw
County Board of Supervisors.
Explaining the requirement, John
E. Ryan, building inspector, cited
several cases in which contractors
did not fulfill agreements with
home owners.
The Michigan Corporation and
Securities, Commission license
would more or less guarantee the
job, he said.
In addition to Washtenaw,
Michigan counties which have
passed the license requirement are
Monroe, Oakland and Wayne.

Dean Williams said the loss of
purchasing power of the faculty
may prove harmful to the Univer-
sity. "You can only obtain good
teachers if you have the money
to pay them." Business, industry
and the government are luring
the competent teachers away
from the college campus.
'U' Higher Than Most
Although the University gives
higher salaries than many of the
state colleges and universities,
schools like the University of Cal-
ifornia pay at least $1,000 more.
Dean Williams stressed that
many members of the faculty are
in "Who's Who in America" and
that 70 out of the 1,000 most dis-
tinguished scientists are on this
campus. In order to keep these
people here, they need a substan.
tial income, he- added.
The situation is so poor, Dean
Williams said, that the 12 per
cent increase is the smallest in
the United States.
Vice-President of the University
William E. Stirton also comment-
ed on the problem. Most of the
money obtained for salaries comes
from the State Legislature. The
University has submitted an oper-
ating budget 'to the legislature,
but there has been no indication
how the legislature will respond.
Special Tax Suggested
"One solution to this problem
could be in the nature of a special
tax for education," Stirton said:
Since there is no dedicated,'tax
for higher education in the state,
a sales tax dedicated specifically
for education could replace the
present sales tax. This tax would
not be regressive, as the people
would be paying the tax when
they buy their commodities.

Today let us apply the hot white light of sustained thinking to
the greatest single problem besetting American colleges. I refer,
of course, to homesickness.
It is enough to rend the heart, walking along a campus at
night and listening to entire dormitories sobbing themselves to
sleep. Aid in the morning when the poor, orn students rise
from their tear-stained pallets and refuse their breakfasts and
shamble off to class, their lips trembling, theireyelids gritty,
it is enough to turn the bones to aspic.
What can be done to overcome homesickness? Well sir, the
obvious'solution .is for the student to put his h~ome on rollers
and bring it to college with him. This, however, presents three
serious problems:
1) It is likely to play hob with your wine cellar; many wines,
as we all know, will not travel.

2) There is the matter of getting your house through the
Holland Tunnel, which has a clearance of only 14 feet, 8 inches.
This, of course, is ample for ranch houses, but quite impossible
for Cape Cods, Georgians, and Saltboxes, and I, for one, think
it would be a flagrant injustice to deny higher education to
students from Cape Cod, Georgia, and Saltbox.
3) There is the question of public utilities. Your house-
and, of course, all the other houses in your town-has wires
leading to the municipal power plant, pipes leading to the mu-
nicipal water -supply and gas main. So you will find when you
start rolling your house to college that you are, willy-nilly,
dragging all the other houses in town with you. This will result
in gross population shifts and will make the Bureau of the
Census cross as bears.
No, I'm afraid that taking your house to college is not feasi-
ble. The thing to do, then, is to make your campus lodgings as
close a replica of your home as possible.
Adorn your quarters with familiar objects, things that will
constantly remind you of home. Your brother Sam, for instance.
Or your citizenship papers. Or a carton of Marlboros.
There is nothing like Marlboros, dear friends, to make you
feel completely at home. They're so easy, so friendly, so wel-'
come, so likable. The filter is great. The flavor is marvelous. The
Flip-Top Box is wonderful. The tattoo is optional.
Decorating your diggings with familiar objects is an excellent
remedy for homesickness, but it is not without its hazards.
Take, for instance, the case of Tignor Sigafoos and Estabrook
Raunch who were assigned to share a room last fall in the
freshman dorm.
Tignor, an ice-skating addict from Minnesota, brought with
him 44 barrels over which he had jumped the previous winter
to win the Minnesota Jumping-Over-Barrels Championship.
