Plans to extend the University
fraternity system to North Cam-
pus by as early as 1960 were re-
vealed' yesterday by Vice.-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis disclosed that the Uni-
versity Regents have authorized
setting aside 6.7 acres in the
northwest section of North Cam-
pus for fraternity development.
Zetar Beta Tau has purchased
the first lot in the area and is
scheduled to begin construction
in the coming year.

said. "But they were hugs of.
Nixon told newsmen his Novosi-
birsk reception was "by far the
most outstanding we have seen.

besides we came at a time when
people were able to greet us."
The welcome was in contrast to
the somewhat chilly turnout of a

Lewis said the action was part
of long-range University plans for
developing balanced student liv-
ing facilities on North Campus.
Present plans call for eventual
construction of a 1,100-unit dor-
mitory south of the fraternity
handled on a "first come, first
served" basis, Lewis continued.
The effect of these transactions
will be to maintain independent
fraternity ownership of property,
and to return certain portions of
North Campus to the Ann Arbor
property tax rolls, he added.
The Regents' approval of the
development was made at their
meeting last Friday, but was not
announced until fraternity offi-
cials had been notified.

Although state funds have been
covering University payrolls since
February, the state's financial
crisis has been threatening since
November - eight months. The
current deficit. has arisen because
state taxes are not due during the
first two weeks of July.
Funds were paid to Wayne
State University because it is not
constitutionally authorized to
borrow money, while both the
University and Michigan State
University can borrow on their
forthcoming student tuition.
Last December, the University
was forced to borrow to meet its
payroll, and in January they bor-
rowed: total, $4 million. Detroit
banks then announced that credit
to the University was being cut
off and no more loans would be
extended until the already-bor-
rowed money was paid back.

The University will borrow $1 million today to meet the

Although the University was by-passed for the first time
in a general sweep-out of the state treasury, operating ex-

years previously when he fell in

C ne r Isolated, Hitchcock Sayrs
The contemporary composer often seems "far out" because he.
can only find justification for what he does within himself, Prof. H.
Wiley Hitchcock of the music literature department said yesterday.
In his speech on "Frontiers in Music," sponsored by the Summer
Session, Prof. Hitchcock said that "today's progressive composer is
isolated from the general public.
"In traditional music, the end of the musical experience is the
performance, offered to the paying public through expensive perform-
ers. In tape recorded music, the
composer by-passes the perform-
er and the public performance,"
Prof. Hitchcock continued.
r Tw n "All of the new music empha-
sizes rational, intellectual control
by the composer over every as-
- : pect of the composition. I would
interpret the contemporary com-
poser's urge for order and ration-
al organization as the ultimate
rejection of Romanticism and its
emphasis on freedom, license and
intuitive expression," he said.
A r n o 1 d Schoenberg's serial
technique (12-tone composition)
has turned out to be a most im-
portant tool for the composer
seeking such rational control,
