Classical Studies Head Plans To Better Department


Mayor Criticizes Quote
On Ann Arbor Defense



of Iowa. "Incidentally," Prof. Else
remarked, "the man who made the
appointment, Harry K. Newburn,
dean of the liberal arts college
there, is now president of the Edu-
cational Television and Radio
Center here in Ann Arbor."
Served in OSS
However, before assuming his
new position, Prof. Else went into"
the armed services, serving with
the Marines in the Office of Stra-
tegic Services.
While in the armed services, he
continued his work in the classi-
cal languages working at the
Greek desk in the Cairo division.
He also served in Greece, Italy, Li-
beria and in the Central European
At the completion of the war,
Prof. Else began his work at Iowa.
While there he initiated a pro-
gram to train high school Latin
teachers through special courses
held in the summer. He is still in-
terested in the shortage of Latin
teachers and expressed concern
that due to recent events, name-
ly the interest in space travel, this
need has been completely ignored.
Receives Grant
In 1956 he applied for and was
granted a Fulbright grant to study

in Rome. While there, he received
the offer from the University for
the position he holds today. He
has been chairman of the classi-
cal studies department since Sep-
tember, succeeding Prof. J. E.
Dunlap who retired as chairman
of the department but who is still
serving as a professor.
As for the future, Prof. Else has
many plans. He hopes to go
abroad once more and study at the
American School of Classical Stu-
dies in Athens. He also hopes to
turn the Department of Classical
Studies at the University from
"one of the top departments in
the country" to "the top depart-
ment in the country."


Ann Arbor's mayor, Prof. Samu-
el J. Eldersveld of the political
science department, asked United
States Rep. Martha W. Griffiths
(D-Mich.) to explain information
in a Florida newspaper attributed
to her that local Civil Defense
plans involve "shooting refugees
from Detroit."
Mayor Eldersveld asked Rep.
Griffiths to "retract" if true or
"clarify" if untrue the informa-
tion which appeared Jan. 22 in a
Jacksonville, Fla., newspaper edi-
"Burying ourselves in the
ground may be awful, but not
nearly as bad as having Ameri-
cans shoot Americans in a ruth-

less struggle to survive," the edi-
torial said. Mayor Eldersveld said
he was "astounded" when he re-
ceived the newspaper clipping.

... As an RCA Engineer

We're looking for engineers who want to make the
most of their abilities in stimulating, challenging
careers. The pay is excellent right from the begin-
ning, with regular increases. Extra benefits add
to security. Special on-the-job training prepares
you for bigger and better positions.
You can advance quickly because ours is a rapidly
growing business. The number of Michigan Bell
telephones doubled in the fifteen years before 1935,
doubled again from 1935 to 1945, and has doubled
again since 1945.
This remarkable growth is creating unprece-
dented career opportunities. We need men to take
the lead in our expanding engineering fields, and
we need men with engineering degrees who want
to advance in executive positions.

Receive your MS in Electrical Engineering,
Mechanical Engineering or Physics at RCA's
expense, through the RCA Graduate Study
Program. At the same time, you're beginning
your RCA career as an engineer on a fully
professional level; getting a head start in the
field you prefer. RCA pays the full cost of
your tuition, fees and approved texts while
you take graduate study part time at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania or Rutgers University.
Or, you may prefer a different path ahead . .
