are fewer students on campus, hence,
fewer on the staff.
Beginning students will spend one week
becoming familiar with the operation off
The Daily.
Then they will be given regular staff y
assignments to "beats."
'* * *
"BEATS" INVOLVE areas or depart-
ments on campus which the reporter covers
for news developments.
Advancement is based upon the abilityA
demonstrated by the individual student. .
Although no regular training program
will be conducted, Senior staff members#
and Night Editors will stand by to ad-i
vise new staff members.M
Work on The Daily traditionally serves
as a spring-board into high-paying jobs on
newspapers. Former staff members may be
found in virtually every leading metropoh-,
tan paper and in all the wire services. -- "

Summer Solstice Brings
Heat Wave Showers
(Co-Managing Editor)
Beaming broadly at all who '
passed below, Old King Sol her-
alded the first day of summer yes
terday with a blast of ultra-violets a
and infra-reds which had the
more than 8,000bUniversity stu
dents seeing double.'
Though mighty bright most of
the day, the sky was overcast with -
typical Ann Arbor rain clouds.
THE RAINS CAME. At a little
past noon and again at three, the
royal gentleman gave way to tor-z
rents of condensed water.
But there was conspiracy
afoot. Bursting forth with new
vigor, the sun combined his z'
withering talents with that of a 4
humid atmosphere to strip stu
dents of all unnecessary wearing
apparel. In fact, one prospectivek
student-of the class of 1967-
was seen as a reincarnation ofh
Adam, minus the foliage of the:
ficus carica.
Air conditioned havens in Ann
Arbor reported a sudden interestj
in the wares being offered, though ,
veryfew more sales were recorded

MUSIC SHOP owners declared
that stocks of the record "We'ref
Having a Heat Wave" were com-
pletely exhausted.
But what about the future? *
Yesterday marked the solstice

To Try Again
On U Budget
Await Report of
Joint Committee
The State Legislature, which
failed to appropriate any money
for the University and other edu-
cational institutions during regu-
lar session, will reconvene tomor-
row to try agair( }and this time
some kind of appropriation seems
certain, according to Lansing
The question that remains to be
settled is how much. A Senate-
House conference committee will
report back on its attempt to iron
out differences between Senate
and House proposals.
* * *
THE HOUSE voted for a $10,-
986,315 grant to the University and
$8,934,190 to Michigan State Col-
lege. The Senate proposed to boost
the University's appropriation to
$12,000,000 and slash MSC's to
(The University's original
budget request was for $12,500,-
000. Gov.'Williams' recommend-
ed an appropriation of $11,800,-
If the conference committee
fails to make a compromise, one
of the two chambers will have to
give way or the Governor will call
a special session before June 30,
when money for the colleges runs
UNIVERSITY Vice - President
Marvin L. Niehuss said he doesn't
know yet how the Senate-House
conflict may finally be settled.
But informed observers in
Lansing think the appropriation
may be close to the House pro-
posal; they say that final agree-
ment will probably be reached
tomorrow or Friday and that a
special session is very unlikely.
Action on educational appropri-
ations may be held up by attempts
to override two of Gov. Williams'
vetoes: one, on a $1-a-gallon tax
on fortified wine, and another on
a commercial fishing law.
The fight to override these ve-
toes will probably be brief and
unsuccessful, however; the legis-
lators' main efforts will be direct-
ed toward settlement of the ap-
propriations struggle.

leading philosopher

Americans have been so free
with their criticism of our school
system that they have too often
overlooked its positive accomplish-
ments, Dean Edmonson of the ed-
ucation school declared yesterday.
Edmonson gave the initial
speech in a series of lectures on
"State and National Trends in Ed-
ucation" to be held through the
summer session at the University
High School.
"AMERICAN citizens are freer
in their criticism of schools and
colleges than the citizens of any
other country," Edmonson said.

School children likewise feel free
to criticize education, and college
students especially have loudly ex-
pressed their opinions, he declared.
* * *
EDMONSON noted that the
United States has more high
school and college graduates than
any other country and praised the
increase in number of educational
institutions available to students.
Professors G. Max Wingo,
Claude Eggersten and Howard Y.
McClusky of the education school
are also scheduled to speak this
week as part of the lecture series.
