"Students, who plan Ito teach, must begin to realize ■that they are worth more than ■that. We must fight for better [teaching salaries." In Michigan, where the 1,766 [members of SMEA lead the [nation in their demand for [better salaries for teachers, [the fight is on. The members [have concluded, after many [salary seminars and 'studies [which have taken place* in colleges and universitis throughout the state, that §5,000 [told be the starting" salary [for teachers with a bachelor [of arts degree and that, within 110 years, the maximum salary [should be $8,000. fcortunities for' prospective fOTC cadets.

Our educational system requires good teachers and therefore, people must be willing to pay for them just as they do for any other professional service." "To overcome the shortage of teachers, the profession must begin to offer something more desirable in salaries. Many students, who would ordinarily have been on a teaching curriculum, are studying in other fields because of this factor," he added. The SMEA is holding its annual convention this week-end in Battle Creek where.it is expected that this wage-war will be one of the main topics of discussion. The 400 CMU students, who are members of the SMEA, urge students who are „%& **«fflP DT^rlly. Men interested in t h e new program will be given a six weeks summer camp training during the summer of their sophomore year. The summer camp will provide the new cadet with the necessary knowledge to begin the advanced program the following September. The summer camp will be held at Fort Knox, Ky. from June 14-July 23. Each cadet will be paid §78 a month plus room, board, and clothing. The new act also increased the regular senior sum me r camp pay to $180. Any sophomores interested in this year's camp should make arrangements with the CMU department of military science before March 25. Central Growing Admissions, Parking Difficulties Increase With Rising Enrollment Enrollment for the spring semester at Central has increased 13.6 per cent over a year ago says Dr. George N. Lauer, registrar. There are 6,983 students currently enrolled as compared to 6,147 a year ago. Enrollment by classes include 2,012 freshmen, 1,462 sophomores, 1,332 juniors, 1,508 seniors, 617 graduates, 41 special and 11 guest enrollees. Largest increase is in t h e freshman class with 24.2 per cent more students than were enrolled for the spring semester last year. Increases were registered in all classes, including a 7.9 increase in the School of able, and the economic conditions during this period. "Not only are there more and more people having more children, but because we are a technological society a bigger percentage of people are going to college and staying longer," Foust said. If the needed funds to meet the growing enrollments does not come from the -state, it may be necessary to devise another method of selecting applicants, Foust said. An example he gave was that if the number of women were out of proportion to the number of men, some sort of restrictions might be necess Apply Now for Work -Study Plan Applications are still being taken for the Work- Study Program just initiated this- Semester al Central. There have been 20 applicants thus far and the amount received from the federal government for the program allows 36 students to be employed this semester. Anyone interested should contact James Bealer, personnel, in Warriner. BENJAMIN FINE, education editor of the New York Times for 17 years, delivers his address, "The Crisis In American Education," Monday night in Warriner Auditorium. (LIFE photo bY RaY Peterson) Johnson's Education Bill More Needs To Be Done semester this year three per cent of our students were can- . celled for not meeting our academic requirements- and conceivably this percentage will increase since competition gets tougher as the enrollments increase." Central's growth also demands an increase in the teaching faculty. Last semester the teacher - student ratio was 22-1. Using this same ratio, 160 members would have _ to be added to the teaching faculty by 1970 according to,- Foust. .praying Another dl'ter the Chips' ^exn?Ts'picked as the team to beat. The Salukis have a seasonal record of 18. wins and three losses. The Associated Press has ranked them number three in the nation. One of their losses came at the hands of Evansville (24-0), the number one team in the country. SIU lost 81-80 in overtime. Southern's most impressive victory of the season was a 78- 55 win over major college Oklahoma State. The Sooners are the league leaders in the Big Eight Conference whose members include Kansas State, Oklahoma University,' and Miss- • ouri, among others. By Neil Hopp Life News Editor •"We must have a massive breakthrough in education in this country. President Johnson's education program is just a fraction of what we need,' Benjamin Fine said Monday night. „. A , , Fine, the only syndicated education editor in the U.S., delivered a speech in Warriner Auditorium entitled, "The Crisis in American Education. Fine has been awarded more than 30'special awards and citations, including the Pulitzer Prize for his work in the field of education. He was education editor of the New York Times for 17 years. "We spend about 3 per cent of our national income for ed- ucation-this must be doubled and redoubled,' he said. Fine recently took a survey in 100 major cities across the U. S. and said a bitter crisis [exists in all of them. The problems range from integration to lack of funds and high tax rates,'he said. ' .Speaking on the recent disturbances over schools and college campuses, Fine said, "There is no sight more terrifying than to see little children and mothers with babies in their arms walking in picket lines, saying ugly slogans, closing schools." "Education is the most important line of defense within our country today," Fine said. "It seems though, that we have money for everything but schools." Fine then compared America's road construction program with her education program!, saying 50 billion dollars worth of roads span the nation Lacking -fine today and yet only 1 or 2 billion is-spent on education. "No one well paved road is worth one school house," he said. "And in the past year, one-third of the school bond issues of the nation had been defeated." In the summer of 1960 Fine made an extensie tour of the Soviet Union educational system. "The Soviet Union gives education top priority--ranking above baseball players and the movie stars," he said. The author of many educational books then turned to a view of the modern educational philosophy. "Unfortunately, education is an intangible product," Fine said. "You can't see it unless you have vision, foresight and unless you realize ' America (Continued on page 3) r .) lf 1 f •» f. B'P '" IP"
