ject, according to the National
and International Committee of
SGC, among them Buenos Aires
University. No definite new ex-
change was set up however.
The Foreign Student Leader-
ship Program, under which out-
standing students from other
countries study in American col-
leges, is operated at the Univer-
sity by SGC:.,
Not sucessful, however, was the
Council's Southeast Asia trip.
Eight participants; both students
and faculty members, were to have
visited Indonesia, Burma, Thai-
land, Cambodia, Vietnam and the
Philippines.
Cost Too High
Cost of the proposed trip was
estimated at $26,000 and attempts
to raise this amount failed. It was
suggested by a Council member
that such a trip be planned again
this year, with South America the
lestination.
Last year saw the Council drop
mother plan. Campus Chest, a
fund drive friom which World Uni-

versity Service, the University
Fresh Air Camp and the Free Uni-
versity of Berlin exchange all
benefitted. This year there will
be three all-campus drives: WUS,
Fresh Air Camp and that of Ga-
lens, a medical honorary.
Discrimination in two areas was
considered by SGC last year, in
off-campus housing and in stu-
dent organizations.
In November SGC voted to ask
the Human Relations Board to in-
vestigate discrimination in Ann
Arbor housing.
Study Membership Restrictions
And in January it was decided
a committee of two representa-
tives of the Interfraternity Coun-
cil, two of Panhellenic Associa-
tion and three of SGC would stu-
dy progress in removal of frater-
nity and sorority membership re-
strictions.
When this committee reported
back May 28 it recommended only
"educationi" as a means of speed-
ing up removal of bias clauses,
but a minority addendum to the
report said SGC should ask that

the University Regents permit no
financial aid to groups with
clauses. The Council adopted this
recommendation by a 10-7 roll-
call vote.
In March the Council again
turned its attention to Ann Arbor
housing, requesting that landlords
who discriminate not be allowed
to use University facilities to ad-
vertise.
SGC concerned itself in May
with another aspect of off-campus
housing, asking that students over
21 years old be permitted to drink
in private rooms, apartments or
houses.
Faces Stiff Challenge .
Entering the 1958-59 school
year, SGC faces what many ob-
servers feel will be its stiffest chal-
lenge. Again the issue is discrim-
ination.
According to a 1949 University
regulation, groups recognized
since then must not discriminate.
In 1956 SGC found national Sig-
ma Kappa sorority in violation of
this regulation. Sigma Kappa
chapters at Cornell and Tufts had
been suspended after pledging
Negroes. I
In finding the national sorori-
ty guilty, SGC gave the sorority
two years to eliminate bias. This
summer's national convention was
the most opportune time for Sig-
ma Kappa to do something about
it.
Also of major interest this fall
is the question of deferred rush-
ing. Evaluation committees have
been considering the pros and
cons for both men and women,
and will be reporting soon.

period. Following this, rushees will
attend - by invitation - smok-
ers, luncheons and dinners during
the rest of the rushing period.
This allows the rushee and the
fraternity rushed a chance to be-
come better acquainted with each
other.
Provides Guidance
Bids are extended to the
rushees in person with pledge
cards being distributed on Oct. 17.
Especially important during
this time is the IFC counselling
system designed to provide un-
biased aid to rushees who have
questions about fraternities in
general, a specific fraternity or
rushing itself.
Two men from each fraternity
act as impartial counsellors, hav-
ing already agreed not to show
favor to any particular fraternity.
Serves Community
Among its other member serv-
ices, the IFC also sponsors the an-
nual Interfraternity Ball, and
Greek Week.
IFC services to the community
include an annual Christmas par-
ty for Ann Arbor school children
and a week- of work renovating
the University Fresh Air Camp
which is accomplished by joint
cooperation of fraternity and sor-
ority pledges.
The Interfraternity Council's
organization includes five officers
chosen annually: president, exec-
utive vice-president, administra-
tive vice-president, secretary , and
treasurer.
