Travel Ban,
On Russians
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The United
States lifted its travel restrictions
against Russian visitors yesterday
and invited the Soviet Union to
do likewise for its American
guests.
President John F. Kennedy or-
dered the one-sided move as 'a
do - by - example effort toward
"betterment of relations" be-
tween the two countries.
The action, effective immediate-
ly, and conveyed by note to Soviet.
Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin,
removed bars against travel by
Soviet exchange visitors and tour-
ists to the one-fourth of the
United States which has been off
limits to Russians, although nor-
mal security measures around de-
fense installations remain.
Decision Stays
Officials said the new decision
would hold regardless of whether
or not Moscow follows suit.
Not affected by the new order
are the approximately 400 Soviet
diplomats and newsmen who re-
side in this country. They are still
banned from the off limits areas,
in reprisal for the travel restric-
tions imposed against United
States diplomats and newsmen in
Russia.
Also not affected by the new
move are Russian students attend-
ing the University.
Permission Needed
International Center director
James M. Davis said that Russian
students are still expected to ob-
tain special permission from the
State Department through their
counselors whenever they are
traveling beyond a radius of 25
miles from the campus.
There were two Russian stu-
dents on campus last year, and
one or more is expected this fall.
In actual practice, Russians
coming to this country under the
exchange program have been ad-
mitted to off-limit cities when
there was sufficient demand on
the American side.

President To Receive Legal Advice;
All Fraterity Data Acceptable

By PHILIP SUTIN

Seven sororities face disciplinary action for failing to turn
in adequate membership selection statements, Student Gov-
ernment Council President Steven Stockmeyer, '63, annouced
yesterday.
All fraternities turned in their statements by the June
23 deadline and have been accepted as adequate.
The seven sororities in violation are: Alpha Epsilon Phi,
Kappa Delta, Phi Mu, Gamma Phi Beta, Delta Delta Delta,
Delta Sigma Theta and Sigma Kappa.
Legal Advice
Under terms of a Council procedure adopted at the May
23 meeting, Stockmeyer will confer this summer with Prof.
Robert Harris of the Lawt,
School, SGC's legal counsel, to
set up a hearing procedure and
calendar.
"I was of the opinion May 23'
and still am that hearings could
begin the third regular meeting
of the fall semester," Stockmeyer
declared.
He surmised that most of the
seven sororities failed to file ade-
quate statements because of oppo-
sition from their national organi-
zations who do not want students:
to deal with membership issues.
Earlier Deadlines
Stockmeyer had announced that
the first four were in violation at
SGC's last meeting of the spring
semester, May 23. The filing dead-
line for the latter three fell due
May 25.j
Under the SGC membership se-
lection regulations, fraternities and ANN McMILLAN
sororitieq were required to file cop-
ies of their membership clauses
and other relevant data of their
constitutions to the Office of Stu- IR A C V iew s
dent Affairs. They also had to sub- ,ilA C View s

Iments. The SGC president was em-

the council, said yesterday.
The selection has been post-
poned until 1963-64.
University Executive Vice-Presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss said it
was difficult to attract well-placed
people for visiting professorships.
He also commented that a visiting
professor cannot "score every
time."

Democrats, viewed the appropria-
tion as an attmpt to "bulldoze"
the group into approving a tuition
hike.
Bartlett may soon take part in
another important decision affect-
ing higher education in Michigan.
New Colleges
The Oakland County Board of
Education next week is expected to1
approve a recommendation to put'
a one-mill property tax on the
ballot in November to finance a
network of community colleges in
the county.
Bartlett has to approve the pro-
posal, which would need 6,500 sig-
natures from county voters. Sites
near Pontiac and Troy are con-
sidered the most likely areas for
new building.

Recommend Elimination
Of Williams Fraternities
A special 11-man committee set up last year to examine the fra-
ternity system at Williams College has recommended in effect that the
fraternities be abolished.
The group suggested that the subsidy paid by the college for
housing and eating costs be eliminated, although the 15 fraternities
would be allowed to function if they were able.
The committee said that fraternities were exercising "a dis-
proportionate role" in undergraduate life, and that this "all-encom-
'>passing . . influence tends to in-
terfere with thetbroader, morein-
clusive ends of the college itself."

(EDITOR'S NOTE: William.
Faulkner died of a heart attack
yesterday at his home in Oxford,
Miss. He was 64 years old.)
By JOHN HERRICK
At 2 p.m. yesterday, a county
died with its creator.
The county was Yoknapataw-
pha county and the man, Wil-
liam Faulkner, who created it
and peopled it with original
Sartoris,' the Snopes' and the
Compgons.
The history of this county is
now forever in the imagination
of the many readers of William
Faulkner.
In Faulkner's own words he
was never a writer, just too
damn lazy to work. The reason
this man, one of the greatest
writers in the world yesterday,
maintained he wasn't a writer,
is that he just wrote for fun.
THE DEATH of this man and
this county has, or will stun
a nation. President John F.
Kennedy said that Faulkner
dead "is in the heart of the set-

elder statesman of American
literature.
The two major figures of
contemporary American fiction
are now dead, Hemingway last
year and now Faulkner.
A generation of American
fiction is over and now a new
and different one will have to
be built.
The authors of "For Whom
the Bell Tolls" and "The Sound
and the Fury" have died and
will-must-be replaced from
the ranks of those who have
written works like "The Naked
and the Dead" and "Catch 22"
and "Clock Without Hands."
* * *
WHO WAS this man who
wrote with such beautiful

"sound and fury," signifying a
whole world full of life,
through the universality of one
small and fictional county in
Mississippi?
He was 64 years old when he
died yesterday of a heart
attack. He was a shy and self-
deprecating little man with
close cropped gray hair and a
small moustache and large
sense of humor and life.
This man who turned out
some of the best and some of
the most difficult fiction of our
time spent much of his life in
the home of his family in Ox-
ford, Miss., living in the Civil
War house of his grandfather.
He was once a newspaper
writer and bohemian in New
Orleans. In his home town he
was known as "Count No
Count" because he was "just
too damn lazy to work."

NATIONAL NEWS ROUNDUP:
Group. To Inves tigate
Pressures on Senate
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-A year-long, far-ranging inquiry into how far
lobbyists hired by foreign governments go to influence United States
policy and get more foreign aid or sugar quotas was voted yesterday
by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Chairman J. William
Fulbright (D-Ark) said the investigation-starting in a few days-
would be far broader than one being undertaken by a Senate judiciary
subcommittee into efforts by high-
ly paid foreign agents to influ-
ence this year's sugar legislation.

an appeal to the Regents concern-
ing the University's membership
selection policies.
However, no definite action has
1 been taken, Francis S. Van Debur,
head of the Interfraternity Re-
search Advisory Council,the study
group, said last night.
"So far the group has taken
hardly any position. Its position
has not crystalized, just as the
thinking of the University has not
crystalized," he declared.
Alternatives
t He pointed out that a number
of steps could be taken. IRAC
could act collectively or any one
or combination of the component
national organizations could talk
to the Regents, Van Debur ex-
plained.
However, IRAC does not meet
during the summer and will not
meet again until late this year,
he noted. Van Debur said that a
special meeting was unlikely.
Panhellenic Association Presi-
dent Ann McMillan, '63, said that
any action IRAC takes it out of
the local Panhel's hands and that
it would go to University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher and the
Regents.
Hopes for Change
She expressed hope that some
of the nationals will change their
position when they see the threat
to their sororities. Miss McMillan
explained that national sorority
representatives, meeting at a Pan-
hel convention in Chicago during
spring vacation, had informally
agreed it would be unwise to
