To Per form New Song
By NORMA SUE WOLFE
Two University song writers will
hear the complete performance of
their composition for the first
time at the Honors Convocation
tomorrow.
J. Fred Lawton, '11, and Earl
V. Moore, '12, present dean of the
music school, composed "Voices
y Yrof Michigan" to commemorate the
centennial of the Michigan Men's
Glee Club.
The occasion for the song's
premiere is the 36th annual honors
convocation, to be held at 11 a.m.
tomorrow in Hill Aud. At this
time, 750 University undergradu-
ates will be honored for outstand-
ing scholastic achievement.
Story Unusual
The story of how,. "Voices of
PROF. EARL MOORE Michigan" was'composed is rather
..composes music unusual. Lawton, a retired insur-
ance agent, was exchanging let-
ters with Dean Moore in Ann Ar-
bor.
The University dean composed
music and sent it off to Lawton,
who dubbed in the lyrics. And so,

Women's4
(Continued from Page 1)
But, she added, those infringe-
ments which involve "morals" or
difficulties bearing on a woman's
reputation are handled by the
higher-level women's judiciaries or
by the Dean of Women..
The Dean, however, could step
in to handle discipline cases at
any point by virtue of the power
delegated to her by the Regents.
According to their ruling, she has
. immediate supervision over
their (women's) welfare, conduct
and activities."
Allowed Wide Range
With this delegation, the Dean
is allowed a wide range in deciding
which areas fall under her juris-
diction, Marcia Peirce, '60A&D,
former member of Women's Jjudi-
ciary observed. Since the majority
of cases come directly to her at-
tention, she can intercede when
she feels that it would be better
for her office to handle a problem.
One sector of immediate con-
cern is dealing with cases that
occur in the women's residence
halls due to a "lack of cohesive-
ness." According to a resident of
Alice Lloyd Hall, independent
women haven't the same group
obligation and ,do not feel the
necessity of maintaining the
"dorm's" prestige as keenly as
affiliates do in 'regard to their
house.
For that reason, she explained,
a certain number of women do
sneak out of residence halls after
hours, conceal liquor in their
rooms and house unregistered
guests. The same could be true in
the sororities but group pressure
forestalls tendencies along those
lines.
Reinforce Problem
Along with the lack of cohesive-
ness, the fact. that a woman who
is forced to live in a residence
hall feels hemmed in by restric-
tions which she 'desires to break
contributes to the problem. .
Affiliates also share more of the
responsibility for running their
residences than do independent
women. With this added responsi-
bility sororities tend to rely less on
house directors than do dormitory
units..;
House directors in the residence
halls, who are more directly con-
nected with the administration,
tend to exert more influence.
Charged with more duties, they
are also,. more concerned with
maintenance of regulations.
Functions as Advisor
"In the residence hall, the func-
tion of the house director isn't to
be a police woman or a judge and
jury, but to serve as a counselor
and advisor," Mildred Kretzchmar,
resident director of Markley Hall
explained.
Seldom do directors make defi-
nite recommendations to judici-
aries, Mrs. Kretzchmar added, but
they are intimately connected with
helping a woman adjust to Uni-
versity life.
There is a certain amount 6f
overlapping, one house director
pointed out. This occurs in areas
where adjustment isn't made and
rule violations occur. Besides re-
ferring a case to a house judici-
ary, she added, the house director
also interprets University rules
and points out their value to a
woman. In no cases, Miss Drasin
pointed out, does the house direc-
tor have the option of reversing a
decision. Her signature or the lack
of it on the weekly reports which
go to the 'Women's Judiciary
Council clearly demonstrate her
opinion.
Part of League
The Women's Judiciary Council,
which operates as a part of the
Women's League, is the immediate
superior to all the house units. Up
to 1952 this group handled all of
the problems but have been forced

because of increased cases to farm
out hearings to subordinate judi-
cial groups.
Composed of ten members-four
sophomores, four juniors and two
seniors (the group's chairman and
vice-chairman), the council has
become comparable to an appellate
court which retains certain areas
of original jurisdiction.
Cases heard for the first time
by the council involve "major
discipline problems" of great late-
ness, liquor in residence and "ex-
treme offenses of all nature."
Hear Small Number
It was pointed out that the
value of such a group is that it
isn't geared to a strict adjudi-
cating process. The council rather
views each woman's problem indi-
vidually and personally within
light of education as well as pun-
ishment.
As far as punishment, a member
of the council explaned that both
social and personal probation may
be assigned. The personal type is
more drastic as any violation of,
the rules may bring a woman be-
fore the council where her entire
disciplinary record will be re-
viewed.
.Decides Policy
In addition to dealing with disci-
pline problems, - the council also
makes policy decisions concerning
women's rules. Recommendations
can come through the Women's
Senate, Assembly and Pan-Hellen-
ic Associations, the Dean of Wom-
en's office or an interested student
who feels that a change is needed.
The Dean of Women's office re-
fers many proposals to the council
for discussion, Miss Drasin added.
There are times when the Dean
doesn't agree with the group's
decision but unless she has a very
strong objection, she will go along
with our recommendation.
Women's Judic, however, never
acts as a police force, Miss Drasin
emphasized. While they recognize
that rules are being broken, they
also realize that reporting infrac-
tions cannot be a judiciary func-
tion.' ,I
And although they are aware
that violations do take /place, they
feel that the only way to stop
women is by educat'ion and ex-
ample. In addition they can also
investigate areas which have
shown a need for help.

is an area of most recent concern,
Miss Drasin noted.
The "supreme court" of the en-
tire system is the Women's Panel
composed of the chairman of
Women's Judic, the highest rank-
ing woman on Joint Judiciary
Council and the Dean of Women.
This body deals with "situations
where a woman's reputation may
be involved."
Depending upon the need for
"confidential action," the panel
will decide to send a case to
Women's Judic, Joint Judic or
hear it themselves. The Dean of
Women can and often does refer
cases to the panel but she isn't
obligated to as. her Regental pre-
rogatives would allow her to han-
dle a discipline problem. herself.
However, Miss Price maintained,
the Dean does make an effort to
direct cases to the Panel, since
she has a great deal of confidence
in the panel's ability.
"In my experience, I have never
known the Dean to exert pressure
on the panel to support her opin-

ion or think along lines similar to
hers," she said.
Presence of the Dean gives the
group "authority in a wide raige
of ideas." This is rooted in the
fact that ultimately she is respon-
sible for all women, Miss Drasin
added,
Because of this responsibility,
she may exert pressure. While Miss
Drasin emphatically stated that
the Dean has never pressured the
panel, a former member of Wom-
en's Judic questioned if "advice"
hadn't at times become "direc-
tive."
Commenting on this manner, a
woman who appeared before the
panel pointed out that the Dean
had acted with a "paternal type
of cynicism." This again could be
due to a personal interpretation of
what her duties are.
The panel, which is based on the
Dean's power, can act over and
in some cases instead of the en-
tire Women's Judiciary. Herein
lies the conflict, Miss Price pointed
out.

Last night through your courtesy I was privileged
to see the SAL CA2ONL motion picture. Xou, were most kind in-
deed to arrange this showing of it for the convenience and
enlightenment of the Senate Select Committee and its staff.
We all greatly enjoyed it.
I was forcefully impressed with its penetrating
and powerful portrayal of an era of gangsterism and crime in
our nation's history that should never be permitted to recur.
This picture should be shown throughout the land. Every cit-
izen of this country should have the opportunity to see it. In
my judgment it will have a potent influence for the maintenanee
of law and order and for the preservation of .decent society in
our country.
