Development of branches of
state controlled universities-like
the University's extension centers
-were criticized by presidents of
smaller state colleges in the re-
cently released Russell Report.
John D. Russell, research direc-
tor and author of the report, said
that the great majority of the
community colleges "were flatly
opposed" to the development of
brances of the state controlled in-
However, community college
leaders look with more favor on
junior-senior level branches, as the
University's Flint branch and the
not-yet-opened Dearborn branch.





There is also considerable oppo-
sition to the establishment of
branches among the leaders of the1
state-controlled institutions, Rus-
sell said. There was no enthusiasm
for such a plan except on an
experimental basis or as a method
of "keeping up with the Joneses."
Russell's report came after per-
sonal visits to 49 institutions of
higher education in Michigan, and
interviews with their officers.
In only one state institution was
there a clear-cut opinion that the
development is unobjectionable.
Another said that the development
is looked upon as an experiment,
to be critically evaluated before

deciding whether the creation
branches is a wise direction
which to move.


PrivateColleges in Accord
The great proportion of the offi-
cials in the privately controlled
colleges said they also rejected the
development of branches of state-
controlled institutions.
According to Russell, the private
schools most often based their
attitude on the idea that a satellite
center would be treated as a
stepchild by the parent institu-
tion and that an educational cen-
ter must have autonomy to have
Some also said they feared an

"empire-building" race among the
state-controlled institutions.
He said it was difficult to say
when the usual operation of ex-
tension classes at an outstate level
tends to be viewed by other
schools as the establishment of a


The report also indicated that
1) Are completely opposed to
enrollment restrictions.
Need Medical School
2) Say they need 17 million dol-
lars more a year for improvement
in faculty salaries, scholarships
and educational and general pur-
3) See little chance that new
private schools would be estab-
lished in the state. However, re-
sponse to a suggestion of a new
state-controlled institution was
very favorable. ,
4) Mentioned most frequently
the need for increased medical

school facilities in the professic
al area.
5) Expect the total enrollme
to increase by 43 per cent in 15
and 79 per cent for 1970.
6) Disagree widely on the o
timum size for a college.
7; Agree that additional cot
munity colleges should be e
7) Agree that terminal-occup
tion courses should be expanc
in the community colleges.
8) Say that Michigan has I
resources to adequately supp
higher education in the state di
ing the years to come but that
is a job for the legislature to so
the financial problem.

it was rather an expedient in re-
sponse to local conditions.


Education Main Issue
Mrs. Milford, and the Republicans who are supporting her,
on in general and the University in particular stand out as the
Tmost crucial issues of the year.

And it is on these issues, she said,
that Sen. Christman has regis-
tered his worst failures.
Tuition, both in, and out-state,'
expansion of facilities, and faculty
salaries, she said, are some of the
critical areas, and all are being
hurt by the recent budget cuts.
Higher . salaries, for instance,
are the vital ingredients for, the
maintenance of University lead-
ership,. Mrs. Milford said. And
this, she declared, "should be one
of Sen. Christman's main con-
County Needs Leadership
For, although "every legislator
must use his own conscience," Mrs.
Milford said, "he must also keep
in touch with his constituency
and its needs." And one of Wash-
tenaw County's primary needs, she.
said, is leadership by its represen-
tatives in the State Legislature.
Mr,. Milford 'sharply criticized
Sen. Christman on this score. Re-
ferring to his abstention on the
first budget proposal, she declared,
"a representative must: not wait
for a roll-call to vote on a bill. We
need lc 'dership in Lansing."
Sen. Christman, however, said
that although "the need is here,
the money simply is not.
"The University wanted a ter-
tain amount," he explained, "but
so did others. And state revenues
were down." Under these condi-
tions, he said, the Republican ma-
jority decided they had "better
treat lightly this year,' keeping
appropriataons near the expected
revenue amount.
The University's protests are, to
some extent, "propaganda," Sen.,
Christman remarked.
"Isn't it possible that there are
unnecessary things being done?"
he asked. "Mightn't there be cer-
tain non-essentials, as in every.
