Two 'U' Students
Missing in Canada
Prof.,Price Joins Search for Son;
Volunteers Comb Hudson Bay Area
Two University students-one the son of Burton Tower carilloneur
Prof. Percival Price-were still missing last night in the Canadian bush
regions south of Hudson Bay.
Prof. Price arrived yesterday afternoon in the village of Senneterre,
250 miles northwest of Montreal, to join search parties already comb-
ing the area for the students, two weeks overdue on a 500-mile canoe
If necessary, he will make the same trip by canoe, looking for his
son, Alan, '59E, and Robert Carey, '58E, of Rosedale, Illinois.
Lost in River Area
The pair are assumed to be somewhere between Lake Waswanipi
near Senneterre and the Rupert House outpost on James Bay-a 250

Barricades Go- Up
Road barricades were set up in
the city.
The shootings occurred in the.
Phalangist area of the city.
Earlier, some Phalangists with
machine guns set up posts out-
side Beirut and demanded the re-
turn of Haddad by midnight. The
Phalangists are militant support-
ers of outgoing President Camille
Chamoun, who was serving his
last hours in office.
At first the Phalangists accused
the rebels opposed to Chamoun of
kidnapping Haddad.. But Pha-
langist leader Pierre Beymayel
told the Associated Press tonight:

"Haddad was kidnaped by a
mysterious hand which sought to
arouse the city again and destroy
the possibility of a compromise.

A hearing was held in the court
of Washtenaw County Circuit
Judge James R. Breakey, Jr., Sept.
9. The court ordered the defend-
ants to produce books, letters,
records and other documents per-
tinent to the case by Sept. 30.
Mrs. Brown's attorneys claim
that when she 'awoke after the
operation on April 16, 1956, she
was paralyzed in the left hand and
arm and from the chest down. The
suit alleges that "unfortunately
something just went wrong" and
the University Hospital will not
explain exactly what happened.

guide's offer to accompany them
on the trip, according to Detective

Chances Only Fair
He said, however, that prospects
of finding the pair remain "fair."
Contacted late last night in
Senneterre, a village of about 4,000
persons, Patenaude said that Royal
Canadian Air Force planes would
comb the area by air today.
If the students are not located,
Patenaude revealed that Prof.
Price will make the trip by canoe,
accompanied by, a guide.
The students left Batchelor
Lake, 110 miles north of Senne-
terre, on July 26 in a recently pur-
chased 16-foot canoe.
No Communication
They stopped at an outpost on
Lake Waswanipi where 'young
Price mailed a letter to his Ann
Arbor home and then set out for
Rupert House, 250 miles away.
Mrs. Price said that her son had
told her he would not be able to
contact Ann Arbor again until
they reached their destination
about Sept. 1.
Patenaude said that the students
carried a ten-day supply of food.
However, he added, they have
fishing gear and could conceivably
"live off their catch indefinitely."
Prof. Price, who was traveling
last week in Montreal, contacted
the Royal Canadian Mounted Po-
lice there, with regard to the
canoeists' whereabouts.
Had Not Arrived
Next, Rupert House announced
that the pair had failed to arrive.
An RCAF plane, searching the
region Friday, spotted several
canoes between Batchelor Lake
and Waswanipi, but reported none
on the lightly-traveled stretch be-
tween Waswanipi and Rupert
House. Patenaude said a helicopter
is now being sought, in addition to
the plane.

For Schools
LEXINGTON, Ky. ()-Gov. Or-

reopen high schools in Little Rock
next Monday, or possibly later in
the week, after a vote on the ques-

The Arkansas governor made
the statement at the Southern
Governors Conference.
He has proposed a plan for
operating the schools at private
"We don't anticipate any legal
difficulty," Faubus said, "but there

At no time has the national or-
ganizataion admitted it violates
University regulations. The ex-
pulsion at Tufts and the suspen-
sion at Cornell were characterized
only as for the "good of the soror-
ity as a whole."
Given No Information
The then-president of the Cor-
nell chapter told The Daily from
Ithaca in 1956 that despite per-
sistent efforts she had "found
nothing" which the national or-
ganizataion was using to justify
its actions. She could think of
nothing in the record of her
chapter, she said - other than
the pledging of a Negro - to ex-
plain its suspension.
Cornell Dean of Women Doro-
thy Brooks wrote National Sigma
Kappa at the request of Presi-
dent Deane W. Malott, asking in-
formation on "specific areas
wherein you deemed the chapter
to have been in error."
On Brink
William W. Hoffa, '61E, Leon-
ard A. Brunette, Jr., '61, Alan
U. Bowland, '61E and William

Police didn't think so.
The police found the four-
some about a mile above the
brink of the falls Saturday with
a big wooden barrel and signs
which read: "Today 3:00 Barrel
Knapp said they were only
trying to draw a crowd. "It was
just a gag, honestly," he said.
"We were just going to send the
barrel off by itself."
The boys, on a sightseeing
trip, were given a stern lecture,
escorted to the Canadian bor-
der, and sent back to Michigan
by way of Canada,

"The slspension of our chapter
at Cornell was entirely a matter
of internal management," was the
reply of National Executive Sec-
retary Margaret Taggart.

national president, had visited
Cornell the year before, "appar-
ently in secret" as Cornell Daily

tives of Sigma Kappa nor the
University administrataion, ac-
cording to Kopkind, and because
of this, President Malott sent a
second letter to the national or-
ganization. The only reply was a
41-word letter backing the pre-
vious stand.
One Suspended, One Expelled
The Cornell local had pledged
one Negro, a junior and was sus-
pended. The Tufts local had
pledged two Negroes, both fresh-
men and as Barbara Busch, '57,
the local president here at the
University pointed out, was "fi-
nancially weak." It was expelled.
Sheila Schwarpz, president of
Thalia sorority at Tufts Univer-
sity, which was the Sigma Kappa
chapter expelled, told The Daily
last week her group has never
been told the reason fo" the ex-
pulsion, beyond "fore the good of
the sorority as a whole."
Dean Katherine J e f f e r s of.
Jackson College, Tufts' school for
women, said her office had never
heard anything else.
After Daily Editor Richard
Snyder, '57, had brought the ac-

tember, 1956, a fact-finding com-

SGC To Consider
Sigma Kappa ,Case
The two-year period given Sigma Kappa sorority to remove "dis-
criminatory membership policies" has expired.
At tomorrow's meeting Student Government Council will begin
consideration of whether or not- the national sorority still violates
University regulations. If the group is found guilty recognition will
be withdrawn, leaving the University's chapter unaffiliated. '
The action in 1956 was taken after Sigma Kappa chapters at
Cornell and Tufts Universities had been suspended and expelled after
