rA8HVILLE, Tenn.-Wine,'women and song will be a part
of men's dormitory life at Vanderbilt University under a new
policy aimed at giving dorm residents treatment equal to that of
"The trouble is," one youth commented, "is that the wine
will be too private and the women too public." And the suspicion
often was voiced that fraternity men still will be a little more
equal than their unaffiliated brethren.
The new policy, announced by officials at the traditionally
staid university yesterday, will permit dormitory students to
drink previously outlawed liquor in their rooms-and invite pre-
viously outlawed women to dormitory lounges on Friday and
Saturday nights.
At the same time, the officials said, juke boxes and record
players will be installed in remodeled recreation facilities in the
dormitories-Carmichael Towers and Kissam Hall. Sometimes,
even, there may be a combo.
Fraternity men have enjoyed these privileges for years under
rules which said specifically that liquor would be permitted only
in fraternity houses. Women, specifically, have been banned from
both men's dormitories-but have long visited fraternity house

In response to an advertisement
placed today by Ramparts maga-
zine in the New York Times and
the Washington Post, the officers
of the United StateshNational
Students Association (USNSA)
last night described their relation-
ship with the Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA).
"In its March issue," the ad-
vertosment said, "Ramparts mag-
azine will document how the CIA
has infiltrated and subverted the
world of American student lead-
ers over the past 15 years. It has
used students to spy; it has used
students to pressure international
student organizations into taking
cold war positions; and it has in-
terfered, in a most shocking man-
ner, in the international workings;
of the nation's largest and oldest
student; organization."

association of USNSA ' officersI

allegations of the Ramparts ar-

SACUA Stymied
On Daily Inquiry
Sends Publications Board Letter
To Faculty Assembly for Action
The Senate. Advisory Committee on University Affairs de-
cided last night to put the question of reviewing The Daily's
relationship with the University community before the Fac-
ulty Assembly at its meeting next Monday.
SACUA debated the question of how to constitute a re-
view and how a mechanism for review ought to be set up and
operated. They could not reach a decision "even on that,"
according to Prof. William E. Brown of the Dentistry School,
chairman of SACUA. SACUA plans to open the question of
reviewing The Daily to the As-
