Educational Budgeting:
No Real Solution





JST WHAT Gov. 0. Mennen Williams has
in mind to help higher education officials
tain more money to operate their colleges
d universities is not clear. He asks these
icials to suggest new approaches to writ-
; their budgets and hints broadly at calling
special session of the Legislature if it could
any good.
Certainly a special session in the immediate
ture could hardly be of any value. The last
;ch losing battle fought last spring by some
islators to increase 1958-59 fiscal year edu-
tion appropriations is clear enough indica-
n that a special session would be futile.
However, the Governor's suggestion that a
w approach to writing the budget be de
sed is open to two interpretations. Does he
ean new methods of selling the budget to
.e Legislature or new methods of preparing
.e budget in a technical sense?
A better selling job might help, but in view
the Legislature's adamant position last,
ring the effects of this would probably be

negligible. If the Governor intends the latter
possibility, it would seem more proprietious to
first get the State legislators to read the pres-
ent form of budget in a sensible manner.
LEGISLATORS insist upon allotting money
on a per student basis contrary to the best
evidence available from the universities and
colleges. Such a method takes no account of
research work and special demands made on
the schools by the state and its citizens, and,
perhaps most important, does not allow sub-
stantial planning and preparation for the
vast enrollments soon to engulf the campuses.
But by either meaning the result is going
to be roughly the same in dollars and cents.
New budgeting methods won't alter the grow-
ing demands on higher education. Better sell-
ing methods won't provide more money to
meet this increased demand. And in Michigan,
at least, th shortage of funds really is the
central problem.

Trio Provides
Pleasant Evening
THE BAROQUE TRIO. ably assisted by cellist Harry Dunscombe an
tenor Harold Haugh last night presented a program of delightfu.
music skillfully performed and gratefully received.
The first half of the program consisted of the Trio Sonata in D b
the 17th Century Italian composer Alessandro Stradella, the Robe:,
Valentine Sonata in F for Oboe and Harpsichord and the Trio Sonata i
C by J. S. Bach. The Stradella Sonata was performed with cello cor
tinuo as were all of the following trio sonatas. The four movements o
approximately one minute each were in turn grave, lively, minorish an
rippling, and provided a cheerful opening note for the evening.
The Oboe sonata by the early 18th century composer, Valentine:
primarily an oboe display with harpsichord accompaniment.
The Bach Trio Sonata featured a duet for upper voices with cor
tinuo and counter melody, a practice which Bach frequently used in h
Cantatas and oratorios. The melodic interplay between Florian Mueller
oboe and Nelson Hauenstein's flute was an especial joy.
* * 9
THE SECOND PART of the program opened with Bach's Sonata in
minor for Flute and Harpsichord which, in its rapid fire pace leave
as little time for breath as does the "Champagne Aria" from "DC
Giovanni." Mr. Hauenstein is to be congratulated for not turning livi
For the remaining two numbers, the "trio" a quatre became seve
with the addition of tenor' Harold Haugh and two anonymous pai
turners. The Buxtehude "My Jesus is my Lasting Joy" is a quiet ar
devout work which Mr. Haugh sang with feeling and restraint. T
plaintive oboe counter melody added much to this interpretation.
In the Cantata by Heinrich Schuetz which closed the progran
Harold Haugh displayed amazing articulation in the florid passages an
created an appropriately joyful mood to the words "I will live to prai
the Lord" and "I thank thee, Lord, with all my heart," providing
suitably happy ending to a very pleasant evening.

'Vagabond Kin' Scores
A FAVORITE with theatre audiences since its New York opening :
1925, Rudolf Friml's musical, "The Vagabond King," is enjoying
fine new production under the Music Circle Theatre tent in Farming
ton, just west of Detroit.
New York City Opera star Walter Cassel deserves much of th
credit for the show's success by way of his gusty singing performanc
as Francois Villon, the vagabond king of Paris in the days of Louis X:
Cassel's deep, rich voice brings out the best in the Friml score, whi
his portrayal of the courageous Villon dominates, as it should, th
story of a France torn with civil war.

Washington Conceals Truth

When it leaked out that Mrs,
Neil McElroy, wife of the Secre:
tary of Defense, was getting free
dental work done at the Army's
Walter Reed Hospital, dental au-
thorities refused to comment. The
press relations officer at Walter
Reed deferred inquiries to the
Secretary of Defense. There it was
officially explained that Mrs. Mc-
Elroy's dental work was an "un-
important kind of thing."
The real truth, learned from
other sources, however, is that all
her teeth were pulled and she re-
ceived a completely new set of
dentures. It was also learned that
the top dentist at Walter Reed
came in after hours to work on
Mrs. McElroy's teeth.
Army dentists are not permitted
to work on the teeth of their own
families. They are also not per-
mitted to work on the teeth of
any service dependent. Despite
this strict ruling, it was officially
stated by the Secretary of Defense
that it was "normal procedure"
for wives of cabinet officers to re-
ceive free dental treatment at
Walter Reed Hospital.

Sherman Adams case are ominous
reports of attempts to squeeze two
Boston newspapers out of busi-
ness in one of the few American
cities where there is still plenty of
newspaper competition.
Testimony has already been of-
ficially recorded regarding the at-=

atempt of Robert Choate, publish-
er of The Herald and Traveler, to
put the squeeze on The Boston
Globe by obtaining TV channel 5.
The Harris subcommittee was'
probing this when it got diverted
into the more sensational relation-
ship between Sherman Adams and
Bernard Goldfine.
Testimony is expected this week
regarding the squeeze placed on
another paper, The Boston Post,
when its former publisher, John
Fox, testifies. Fox, a former friend
of Bernard Goldfine, knows him
backward and forward, and has
already supplied the Harris sub-
committee with important infor-
Fox suffered a series of tax
crackdowns from the United States
Treasury Department which he
blames on some mysterious hid-
den hand high-up in government.
First, the Treasury discovered that
he had $200,000 of whiskey in a
bonded warehouse and demanded
that he pay taxes on it then rath-
er than later because it was eight
years old.
* * *
ABOUT the same time, Fox had
borrowed $13,500,000 from banks
in thirty different states and re-
ceived reports from the banks that
when agents from the Comptroller
of the Currency came to examine
the banks, one of the first things
they asked was whether the banks
held any of Fox's paper. As a re-
sult, many of his loans were not
renewed. Fox claims that this was
a deliberate attempt to persecute
him financially, also dictated from
high places.

In June, 1956, the Treasury
slapped tax liens on him for $1,-
700,000. This again he claims was
persecution, and he supports his
charge by showing that 87 per cent
of the tax claim was later dropped
by the Treasury on the ground
that it was improper.
Fox has taken his tax battle to
the United States Tax Court where
he has won most of the prelimin-
ary rounds. He says he has turned
down a Treasury offer to settle
for $15,000.
Fox's Boston Post has now
folded. He blames a local econom-
ic squeeze applied by Choate of
The Boston Herald and Traveler
and a tax squeeze applied by a
hidden hand in Washington.

T A SPEECH Monday to assembled high
school teachers, Benjamin Fine called for a
pling of teacher's salaries and a ,$5Q billion
n-year rehabilitation program for America's
bVic schools.
He also advocated new school building at
e rate of $2 billion per year for the next
a years, and more federal aid for schools.
But his speech was, to us, only the latest in
long series of grandiose speeches on educa-
n, "the end of the rainbow type" which have
en so popular in education recently. Fine,
Lo recently resigned as education editor of the
w York Times to take a post at Yeshiva
giversity, remembered only four-sixths of his
wspaper training in his speech. He remem-
red the who, what,,when and where, but he
rgot the why and how.
He forgot both to the detriment of his
eech and the cause of education, which might
yve been somewhat advanced by his talk.
though it must seem easier to compile statis-
s, theoretically triple salaries, and build.
pothetical buildings, the need is for some
and thinking about how this building and
novation is to be accomplished.

EQUALLY as important, some satisfactory
answers should have been given to the
question "Is there a need for more money for
education" for as he said the American people
don't seem to think so.
Fine said that by 1960 an estimated 45 mil-
lion students will be attending America's schools
and colleges, a growth of 15 million in less
than 15 years. What will be gained by educating
this many more American youth, instead of
tightening requirements and using the money
already available to provide higher quality
education? For many the question is "Why more
money for education at all?" Needed is some-
thing more than an automatic feeling that more
money is the answer.
Fine might have better spent his time, and
that of the audience, outlining a "how" pro-
gram for getting even one of his recommenda-
tions adopted instead of saying what teachers
have heard more than anyonge-that educa-
tion should be improved. He might well- have
drawn on his over twenty years of experience
to attempt to answer the question, for he
probably would find no more willing .group-
to act on sensible suggestions.

A FTER five bitter years of spor-
adic bloodshed, the tiny island
of Cyprus, stuck in the throat of
the North Atlantic alliance, still
remains an indigestible problem.
As relations between Greece and
Turkey, both NATO members,
neared the breaking point last
week, western diplomats were
faced with an acute crisis.
With Greek and Turkish Cypri-
ots becoming more and more in-
transigent, and the weary British,
hearing one suggestion after an-
other flatly rejected by both fac-
tions, United States concern for
the future, of NATO continues to
grow: If tensions over Cyprus are
not eased quickly, what is now a
small crack in the alliance may
well become a gaping hole in the
NATO wall.
That both groups on the island.
are more stubborn than ever is
shown by the most recent wave
of riots, which began not in pro-
test against a British proposal,
but merely in anticipation of one.
