CHICKS TO WATUSSI:
University Film Center
Offers Subject Variety
By RON GOLDSTEIN
Practically everything f r o n
chicks to Watussi Indians is in-
cluded among the 2000 film titles
offered by the Audio-Visual Edu-
University-operated, the center
features more than 6000 films
that are available to all campus
departments and groups as well
as many state school and com-
BESIDES distributing services,
the center maintains a production
unit which has already completed
4 films this year.. A popular film
recently released is "University of
Wchigan Marching B a n d."
Scheduled to be complete in early
October, is a color production en-
titled "We'll Remember Michi-
"In order to keep the de-
partment's films in good nhysi-
cal condition and to make room
for newly acquired material, we
are staging our first large clean-
out of outdated, damaged film,"
Director Ford L. Lemler said
Three barrels of antiquated
scrap film footage were discarded.
ESTABLISHED IN July. 1948,
as a separate administrative unit
of the University, the Audio-
Visual Education Center is direct-
ly responsible to the Administra-
tion through an executive com-
"We get all kinds of requests
for materials, and all are filled,
if physically possible," Lemler
said. Films on civilian defense
have recently been called for.
Among the more popular ones
are "You Can Beat the A-
Bomb" and "Atomic Alert."
Two important policies guide
the Center in its distribution
function.tThe first of these poli-
cies is that new material must
meet reasonably high standards

ALIT AUDIO-VISUAL materials
added for distribution from the
Center are critically selected, to
meet the needs of some important
educational purpose. In the case
of films, pratcically all of the
current productions are screened
and evaluated by staff members
or by teacher committees.
Many subjects are rejected
because of inadequacies in con-
tent and treatment or because
of poor production quality.
"This selection process protects
the schools from grossly inade-
quate material and to a degree
relieves them of the burden of
selection," commented Lemler.

A SECOND. POLICY of distri-
bution concerns. the service power
of the Center. Selectivity in add-
ing materials to the film library
is accompanied by rather liberal
purchases of duplicate prints.
When booking reservations accu-
mulate on one print, a duplicate
print is purchased.
This vertical expansion of the
library means greater service
power which in turn means an
ability to meet more school re-
quests on a short time, "spot-
booking," basis, Lemler added.
It was reported that.167 cam-I
pus groups used films from the
Center last year. Money collected
from the minimum rental fee is
used to maintain the University
film library and upkeep of the
