Approves Recommendation
The Council approved a recom-
mendation from the committee
that the case be referred to Joint
Judiciary Council. The Union and
Wolverine Club, sponsors of the
dance, were not directly named.
Operation Wakeup coincided
with the Panhellenic Ball. It was
approved by SOC with the under-
standing that publicity prepared
after that time would stress the
pep-rally half and would avoid
mention of the dance afterwards.
The Student Activities Commit-
tee reported the publicity had
violated this, agreement, and had
come out before approval and in-
cluded handbills, both against
University rules

like a good way.

An Editorial...
STUDENT Government Council Board in Review i
meeting this morning.
Ostensibly, the meeting is set to determine the fat(
of Sigma Kappa sorority. Actually it will go a long wa
toward determining the status of SGC.
In fact, according to the Council Plan, the Boar
cannot legally consider whether or not recognitior
should be withdrawn from Sigma Kappa. It can only re
verse the Council decision, if the decision is in conflic
with regental, Joint Judiciary, or administrative policy
or practice.
And this is where the problem lies.
The administration has insisted until now tha
its policy on this issue is "Sigma Kappa sorority is no
in violation of University regulations." We have sai
before, if this is a representation of policy,. studen
government never had any power in this area at all. I
SGC only had power as long as it agreed with the ad-
ministration, it is difficult to see why the Council wa
ever given any, even on paper.
And policy usually means a broad general outlook
which provides the framework for judging specific cases
However, the administration is reversing the process
and if it continues op its present course, the first fouo
years of administrative faith in student governmeni
will be shown to be merely pretense.
The new era of student responsibility, represented
by a showplace building for student leaders will have
suddenly ended. SGC will be a great experiment tha
failed;- failed because it lacked the necessary elemen
of real administrative faith in students' ability to think
and act for themselves.
Today the Board in Review meets, We hope that the
Board will show that all those grand promises were mor
than just words.

The Executive Committee of the

Thursday to fine Alpha Tau Ome-

assist in their rushing program.
According to John Gerber, '59,
president of IFC, a sorority had
serenaded the fraternity while
rushees were in the house.l
"Serenading between the two
houses is traditional," Murray
Milne, '59, the fraternity's presi-
dent said. "No one ever asked the1
sorority to come over that night."
Since the sorority was not aware
that serenading was in violation
of rushing procedure, the Com-

$50 suspended was sufficient.

Prof. Herbert Johe, 54 years old,
currently assistant to the dean of
the architecture school, was ele-
vated to the post of assistant dean.
Arlen R. Hellwarth was appointed'
to the corresponding post in the
engineering college.
Previous Faculty Member
Prof. Johe, a faculty member
since 1947, served previously as an
instructor in architecture at North
Dakota Agricultural College. He
received his master's degree in
architecture from Carnegie Insti-
tute of Technology in 1940.
Hellwarth, 55 years old, was at
the same time named associate
professor of engineering and col-
lege secretary. He will replace
Dean Walter Emmons, who is re-
tiring June 30, 1959.
Worked in Detroit
Hellwarth, who received his
bachelor's and master's degrees
here, has been associated with a
Detroit firm for the past ten years.
The Regents also appointed
Charles W. Cares, 40 years old;
associate professor of landscape
architecture. Prof. Cares has been
on the Cornell University faculty
since 1951, where is is presently
a member of the department of

"Pasternak now lies in the loneliness of undefeated truth--his eyes

unusual considering that he once wrote, "I am linked to Russia by
