Hoped for Loans
Red Tape Slows NDE Program; ,
Office of Education Calls Meeting
By THOMAS HAYDEN
Student loans, financed by federal funds, may still be available
as planked by early next semester when demands hit a peak at the
University, the United States Office of Education has reported.
But there are some indications that red tape in Washington has
fouled the machinery of the loan .program, which, under the National
Defense Education Act, would make up to $250,000 open to the Urd.
The federal office, in charge of channeling $40 million into vari-
ous fields of education during the next year, has called a Dec. 1 meet-
ing in Chicago to discuss the recently-passed education act. Repre-

The Amherst College chapter of
theta Xi voted Friday to sever ties
with the national fraternity, ac-
cording to William Segal, presi-
dent of the group..
The chapter had been suspended
in August, 1957 following the
pledging of a Negro. Segal said
the chapter originally was sus-
pended by the Grand Lodge which
governs the national organization
between the fraternity's conv-
The national convention meet-
ing later in the month then vQted

Convention Ratio Higher
For the convention to, take the
initiative in revoking the chapter's
charter would have required a
two-thirds mdjority instead of the
simple majority needed after ac-
tiqn has been taken by the Lodge,
The local chapter was suspended
for "disrupting the general wel-
fare of the brotherhood," Segal
added. He said the chapter had
tried to bring to the floor of the
convention that the real issue was
the fact that the group had
pledged a Negro.
"Never during the course of the
discussions did the national Ira-'
ternity use the words Negro or
discrimination," Segal said.
The national officers had
charged the Amherst chapter with
presenting "numerous, and formid-
able problems." Segal said the
charges referred only to a case
several years ago where the chap-
ter had shown disrespect toward
national officers and fad dis-
played a laxity in keeping the

Negro delegates to the National
Interfraternity Council's annual
meeting Dec. 4, 5 and S will be
prohibited from staying at the
same hotel as the other delegates,
it was revealed yesterday.
In a letter to the Dean of Men's
office, the national group called
the University's attention to he
fact that the meeting will be held
in Atlanta, Ga., and that state
and local laws prohibit white ho-
tels from accepting Negro trade.
Normally, delegates are expect-
ed to live at the Atlanta Biltmore
Hotel, where the annual meeting
will be held. According to the let-
ter, however, Negro delegates may
attend the meeting but would not
be allowed to linger in the halls,
use the lobby, eat in the dining
rooms or use the hotel's rest
rooms. The letter said separate
hotel and eating accomodations
would be made for Negroes wish-
Ing to attend.
According to the Dean of Men's
office, no Negroes from the Uni-
versity are planning to attend.

He warned that "making every

The idea was developed today at

A reporter for Tass, the Soviet

out in West Berlin.

"I have always considered my-

Sallade continued. It would ap-

permit the Democratic Party to
organize the House, he said.

Bhoard Approves Formar
For House Applicaion
By RALPH LANGER
The residence hall's Board of Governors yesterday approved a
new men's residence application form.
The new application was devised to implement last year's residence
halls policy and requires no pre-residence photograph. It also removes
parenthetical suggestions for answering several questions.
The approved form, which will go into effect during 1959, asks
prospective residents to describe themselves and the roommate that
they might desire, without suggesting such items as race and religion.
The question of having parents approve their son's choices
received some discussion. The Board finally approved a general state-
, ment that the University suggest
tthe parents that they read their
son's form. John M. Hale, senior
director, men's residence halls, and
Walter B. Rea, Dean of Men, felt
that if parents read their son's
0 S preferences, some difficulties
might be avoided after the selec-
to tion of-roommates.
