Health Plan
To Students,
A voluntary health insurance
program costing $12.75 for the
schop year is available to Univer-
sity students this semester for
the first time.
In effect next month, the pro-
gram was set up this spring and
summer by Student Government
Council.Other schools, including
Michigan -State University, have
had similar programs for some
Representatives of the company
offering the SGC-sponsored insur-
ance will be available during regis-
tration hours this week in the
Student Activities Bldg. Students
may discuss the program with
them or purchase insurance at
that time.
Student Rates
SGC member Scott Chrysler, '59,
in ,charge of the program, calls it
far above" those at other schools
The $12.75 rate covers unmar-
red' students not wishing mater-
nity benefits. Married student
rates are higher.
Under the program administer-
ed by the D e tr o i t Insurance
Agency, insured students would
receive up to 135 days paid hos-
pitalization, blanket coverage up
to $3,000, surgical coverage up to
$300, and miscellaneous medical
expenses up to $1,000.
'Completely aside from the pro-
gram are the benefits given stu-
dents fre'e of charge through Uni-
versity Health Service.
Hospitalization: 135 Days
Following are the rates beyond
the- initial $12.75 charge for un-
married students: student with
matrenity benefits, $22.75; student
and spouse, $39.50; same with ma-
.ternity benefits, $49.50; student,
spouse and children, $47.50; same
with maternity benefits, $57.50.
The plan provides 120 days hos-
pitalization at $18 per day. The
additional 15 days hospitalization
from Health Service brings the
total covered to 135 days.
Accident coverage, according to
Chrysler, is only $1,000 at most
other colleges. He calls the mis-
cellaneous medical benefits the
"most.outstanding" in the policy.
Doctor's Calls
Doctor's calls, under the plan,
will be covered after the second
call. The insured pays for the first
two. The benefit is payable in
hospital, home or doctor's office.
Maternity benefits pay up to
$150 for normal birth or Caesarian
section for all hospital room and
board, hospital extras and doctor
charges, or $50 total for all room
and board, hospital extras and
doctor charges for misarriages.
All students carrying four or
more credit hours, both under-
graduate and graduate, and those
part-time students carrying less
than four hours who pay the
health service fee are eligible for

Group Leaders Have To Know How
One orientation leader said it
and the others agreed.
"The thing is, a freshman is
entitled to be confused. But if the
leader doesn't know something-
well, he can't not know it. He's got
to know everything."
And so the worst cases of buck
fever during this year's orienta-
tion program are to be found
among group leaders.
It's easy to recognize a group
leader. He's the one with a badge4z.
on his shirt, a portfolio under his
arm and a hunted look in his eyes.
Leaders Spotted
One can narrow them down to
even smaller categoiies by further
distinguishing characteristics. A
furrowed brow means too many
questions that can't be answered.
A harrassed look means a probable
shortage of materials. And a va-
cant, fatalistic look means that
an irrevocable mistake has been
Both the group leaders and Uni-
versity authorities are taking the
orientation program very seriously
