Education Benefits State,
Individual, Adams Says
By LARRY ROTHMAN I I ..h1

, , < , _.

Time Of Your Life

VALUE OF VERSE:
Poetry Gives Light That
FormsSociety -- Ciardi

Education benefits the state as
well as the individual, Provost
James P. Adams declared before a
general session of the 21st annual
Summer Education Conference.
Speaking on what he called "En-
lightenment and Society," Adams
related the University and the
State of Michigan to his topic.
Stressing the importance of edu-
cation to progress, he said, "As we
look back over history, we find
that intellectual and social pro-
gress have been retarded by Ig-
norance, superstition and fear, all
of which are based on a lack of
knowledge."
COMMENTING ON the relation
of education to democracy, Adams
observed that the only way in
which we can achieve our ideals
is to be wise and discerning.
"If I were to build two edi-
fices, one dedicated to education
and the other to democracy, I
would print across the former
'Founded in the faith that men
are ennobled by understand-
ing,"' which is the broad, gen-
eral purpose of education.
"And across the latter building,
'Sustained by faith in the judg-
ments of the people.'"
* * *
ADAMS, STRONGLY moved by
the beliefs he was expressing, told,
the attentive audience that, as our
society grows, we must ask our-1

wives wnat we want it
in the future.
"It does not even
dream a bit in doing

Suggesting a few of the things
that we must strive for in the fu-
ture, Adams declared that one of
them would certainly be an ever-
expanding economy.
"SOME PEOPLE THINK that
our economy is mature, that we
have no more frontiers to conquer
-this is grossly wrong," he em-
phatically asserted. For we still
have frontiers of the mind and of
technology to explore.
Our progress in the future will
depend on how far in these
fields we reach out, he added.
"If we do not reach out, we may
find ourselves suffering from
moral, spiritual and intellectual
claustrophobia." -
We must also seek an ever-
expanding productivity, he said.
Producing more things with the
same amount of energy is the on-
ly way to raise the standard of liv-
ing.
"MORE LEISURE time, brought
on by shorter working hours, is
also to be desired," Adams pointed
out.
But as freedom for the indivi-
dual increases, he warned, care
must be taken that it is balanced
by self-restraint.

'Messiah' To e
OfferedTonight
The class in choral literature of
the music school will present a
'dress rehearsal' of Handel's "Mes-
siah" at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill
Auditorium with Prof. Harold
Haugh, nominal head of the class"
singing in the chorus.
The performance is designed to
give prospective conductors a
chance to lead and perform in a
favorite work which they will un-
doubtedly have to tackle in their
professional life.
At least six conductors will as-
cend the podium and some eleven,
soloists will sing Handel's beau-
tiful melodies.
Orchestra support will be pro-
vided by students in the string
and woodwind departments of the
music school, but Prof. Haugh was
still curious last night, as to how
many orchestra members would;
show up.-

explaining the reasons for our
programs."
* * *
"MOST PUBLIC relations prob-
lems stem from marks," said Hais-
ley. Low marks affect the security
of the child and when you do
that you threaten the parents as
well.
"The history of man has been.
written around the conflicts he
has waged to obtain security. Rus-
sia, with an idealogy centered
around Communism, seeks this
security in one way. America, with
an emphasis upon certain indi-
vidual freedoms, free enterprise
and democratic organization, seeks
this security in another," he said.
According to Haisley, this'se-
curity is the key to everything
that happens in our schools. All
policies must be examined to de-
termine whether they are a
threat or guarantee to that se-
curity.
Among the questions which have
been found to cause most concern
to the public are teacher's tenure
and over expanded curriculums,.
Parents also fear a lack of em-
phasis on the fundamental three
"W's and upon vocational guid-
ance.
In communities where school
officials and citizens have worked
together on these problems the
most healthful situation exists for
children, Haisley asserted.

Many People
Religyion-less
Milfo rdSays
"Irreligion, secular humanism,
and the spiritual religion of the
East can be classified as the three
types of alternative religions,"
Chancellor T. P. Milford, legal
custodian of the Magna Carta
said yesterday.
So many people today accept
no religion at all and have no
points of reference for their con-
duct, he continued, and thus they
possess no sense of belonging to
a group of living-dying human be-
ings.
"THERE IS a grain of irreligion
in all of us. The popular concep-
tion of it seems to be nowadays
'Let's eat, drink, and be merry
for tomorrow we die!" Chancellor
Milford asserted.
Scientific or secular human-
ism teaches that man is a pro-
duct of an evolutionary cause
and effect, and that he can, in
light of scientific knowledge,
take conscious control of the
process and somewhat control
the course of his own destiny,
he continued.
The spiritual religion of the
East can be called the philosophy
of the spirit; it seeks for unity
behind the confusion of the world,
he explained.
"The end of the philosophy of
the spirit is the achievement of
unity with the Divine, which
makes it the most magnificent
philosophy in the world," Chan-
cellor Milford concluded.

The final value of poetry is that
it forms the light that forms our
society; Prof. John Ciardi said yes-
terday in his lecture, "The Value
of Poetry in Society."
"If -we learn to stay near the
light, ".We may make a society, in
spite of the dubious conditions of
the one in which we now live."
* * *
THE POET has had more and
more to. reject the present cultur-
al -level of society, Prof. Ciardi
commented. Now he pulls society
up to his level, acquainting people

Can Live Good
Lfe Through
Art -- Rannells 4
" That philosophical miracle
'The Good Life' can be lived in the
presence of art," Prof. Edward W.
Rahtells, of the University of
Kentucky said in his last lecture
in the Contemporary Arts and So-
ciety course.
That's because the artist discov-
eres and creates the life of the in-
ner mind, he continued.
* * *
THE ARTS have not been de-
humanized, he contended. "On the
contrary, cubism, which many use
as an extreme example of dehum-
anization, was actually an adven-
ture to bring special dynamics to
a society which needed it."
"The problem is the lack of
understanding and feeling for
art in the people," he empha-
sized.
The intricacies of modern sci-
ence can be understood with
enough competent training and so
can the intricacies of feeling in-
volved in modern art, Prof. Ran-
nells commented.
* * *
"THE ONLY TROUBLE is that
people expect to be able to under-
stand art without training. Yet
abstract mathematical formulas
are easier to comprehend with the
intellect than art."
Art must be a dual experience:
first with the feelings, then with
the. intellect, he said firmly.
"But one thing is certain, each
work must be seen on its own
terms, and the only valid comment
which ,can be made on a painting
according to one authority is 'ah'
or -bah'.
Co me~t Cancelled
A JaZ Concert, scheduled by
the contemporary arts and society
course to be presented at " 8 p.m.
today, has been cancelled.
In its place, Prof. Frederick
Wight, director of education at
the Institute of Contemporary
Arts in Boston, will speak on "The
Art of Edlvard Munch."

with their own complex inner emo-
tions, by disecting his own, he
added.
"The more poems I can in-
hale into myself, the more peo-
ple I am; and the more poems I
can dredge out of myself, the
more I know about myself," he
illustrated.
Poets nowadays avoid the simple
assertion, Prof. Ciardi explained.
"Since Freud showed us that man
has interior ambivalence, it has
been necessary for poets to show
the duplicity of words. This has
been done in different manners
by such poets as E. E. Cummings,
Gertrude Stein, and T. S. Eliot.
* * *
IN FACT, he asserted, the cen-
ter of the moral temperature of
today's poet is ambivalence and
multiplicity.
, Prof. Ciardi commented brief-
ly upon the clarity of the sci-
ences as opposed to the oft-
heard comment that the poets
are too abstruse.
"Einstein could have been writ-
ing poetry when he declared that
the world of today must not be
considered relative to either space
or time, but is only space-tihe
curved about the stars; yet no one
complains about his obscurity.
And then, he went on, there's
the mathematical genius who
proved that if A and B (two men)
were shot off into space at the
same time, it could be arranged so
that when they returned to earth
A would be younger than B, or B
younger than A, or they both
would be younger than each other.
"And they call poetry too com-
plex," he complained.

rights should ,be in accordance
with the following criteria:
"i-Recognition: University and
college administrations may pro-
perly require official recognition
of student organizations as a con-
dition for assigning them campus
facilities and giving them any fi-
nancial support which the college
or university may make available.
" (a) Where campus organiza-
tions or publications in effect en-
joy a monopoly of certain college
or university facilities or finances,
the college or university adminis-
tration may properly insist on
adequate safeguards for democra-
tic terms of membership and con-
trol, and for including in publica-
tions the expressions of points of
view opposed to those of the edi-
tors, provided that all such safe-
guards are to be democratically
student formulated and adminis-
tered.
" (b) In the case of all other or-
,anizations and publications, re-
cognition should be qualified only
by the requirement that these or-
ganizations are genuinely con-
nected with students or faculty at,

that college or university and do
not demonstrably interfere with
the stated purposes and program
of the institution itself. Recogni-
tion should not be used as a lever:
1. To control the purposes or pro-
grams of the organizations or pub-
lications; 2. To force them to
merge with other organizations or
publications on the campus
against the wishes of their mem-
bership; or 3. To dictate their
form of organization or procedure.
"2. Limitations imposed by re-
cognition: Recognition may -pro-
perly limit the manner in which
organizations or publications may
use thename of the college or uni-
versity off-campus, such as requir-
ing them to indicate clearly that
they do not represent the views of
the institution. Recognition may
also properly limit the manner in
which organizations may employ
university facilities or finances in
taking action-as sharply dis-
tinguished from expressing opin-
ion-directly affecting matters
off-campus. But no disciplinary
action may properly be taken
against students, faculty mem-
bers, or their organizations or pub-
lications for activities off-campus
not purporting to represent or in-
volve the institution, or for ex-
pressing opinions on-campus con-
cerning matters off-campus.
"3. Faculty Advisors: In institu-
tions having faculty advisors for
student organizations, such ad-
visors should be chosen or approv-
ed by the student organization it-
self. Student groups should not be
forbidden to function because no
faculty member will consent to
serve as their advisor.
"4. Written policies: All policies
and procedures involving or ef-
fecting the rights of academic
freedom, and the conditions of re-
cognition of student and faculty

organizaions and publications,
should be clearly stated in writing
after consultation with the groups
tffected.. They should be formally
accepted by the entire campus
community. These policies and
procedures should in no case be
subject to change without notice
under the pressure of a particular
situation, and the groups affected
should participate at all times in
their application.
S* * * .
"NSA STRONGLY urges the ac-
ceptance of the Bill of Rights. A
private institution established not
only for purposes of providing lib-
eral education, but also for speci-
fically avowed purposes, may ex-
ercise its recognized right to set
up clearly defined standards in
line with those purposes. However,
the student must be fully ac-
quainted with such standards upon
applying for admission, and these
standards must not exempt the in-
stitution from performing those
functions which are the responsi-
bility of any college or university
in a democratic society. No edu-
cational system can abrogate this
obligation to prepare students for
the role of citizenship.
"NSA is in accord with the prin-
ciples of academic freedom as ex-
pressed by the American Associa-
tion of University Professors, in
Vol. 32 No. 4 AAUP BuI.
* * *
CONCERNING academic free-
dom we believe that:
"1. The teacher is entitled to
freedom of research, and in the.
ject only to the limitations impos-
publication of the results is sub-
ed by the performance of his other
academic duties; but research for
pecuniary return should be based
upon an understanding with the
institution.
"2. The teacher is entitled to

freedom in the classroom in dis-
cussing his subject, but he should
not introduce into his teaching
controversial matter which has no
relation to his subject.
"3. The teacher has the right to
join organizations whether reli-
gious, political, or social, provided
that these organizations are not
illegal under the civil statutes,
w i t h o u t being discriminated
against through economic, social,
or political pressures because of
such activity.
"4. When the teacher speaks or-
writes as a citizen outside the
campus he should be free from in-
stitutional censorship or discipline.
"5. The basis for employment of
faculty shall be only their ability
to fulfill the requirements of the
position.
"Limitation of academic free-
dom because of the avowed pur-
poses of the institution should be
clearly stated in writing at the
time of the appointment. Since the
teacher is a man of learning and
an educational officer, his profes-
sion and institution may be judg-
ed by his utterances. At all times
he should be accurate, exercise
appropriate restraint, and main
every effort to indicate that he .is
not an institutional spokesman.
"IN CASE OF VIOLATION of
the Bill of Rights or academic
freedom, a preliminary (NSA)
Staff Committee investigation can
be initiated at the request of the
college administration, student
government, or a student petition.
"At the discretion of the Staff
Committee a, full investigation
may be conducted with the report
to be submitted to the (NSA) Na-
tional Executive Committee and
the institution concerned. Further
action may be taken by the NEC
with regard to the publication of
the report if deemed necessary by
,hat body."

gests changes in Bill of Rights.
