her the elimination of any

securing more, rather than

In this same connection, it
seems to rie to be manifest that,
if you accept the assumption teat
student organizations are jusrfied
in terms of their educational rele-
vance, that someone must make
a judgment as to whether any or-
ganization is relevant to the edu-
cational purposes of the Univer-
sity. Inthe past, the requirement
of a faculty sponsor has placed
a portion of the responsibility for
that judgment in the hands of a
faculty member. At the same time,
r question whether Student Gov-
ernment Council should assume
the unilateral responsibility for
making such a judgment.
Secret Groups
O The isue of secret or clan-
destine organizations. There was a
time in the history of American
universities when various secret
societies flourished. In our pro-
gression toward a more open so-
ciety, the University community
gradually came to' reject the con-
cept of "secret" organizations as
inconsistent with the ideals of the
institutions. This campus is, and
I am confident it will remain, an
,open society where individuals,
and groups are free to advocate,
discuss, persuade, and even propa-
gandize on behalf of their points
of view. Out of such openness
comes, according to the Univer-
sity's traditional faith, a closer
and closer approximation to the
truth. It is my personal oelief that
it is neither necessary nor de-
sirable for individuals or grcups
on this campus to hide their
ideas, opinions, advocacy or activ-
ities beneath the cloak of, secrecy

plication of sanctions, and lines In any case, SGC's plan must
of appeal. Along with the author- include a rigorous and legally de-I
ity granted to SGC to recognize fensible set of provisions for meet-'
student organizations is the ing the challenges which will al-

authority to withdraw recognition.
The withdrawal of recognition
from a student organization car-
ries with it certain limitiation
upon activities and the use of
Unversty facilities. In the case of
certain groups, withdrawal of rec-
ognition or the application of
other sanctions have serious im-
plications for the groups, and
ramifications reaching beyond the
campus.
You are probably aware that
certain national fraternities and
sororities question whether SGC
has a legitimate authority to apply
sanctions against their local chap-
ters, for any cause whatsoever.
Some years ago, a lengthy and
complicated sea of procedures was
adopted by SGC in an effort to
clarify this issue. That document,
which was the result of lengthy
labors, has been subjected, even
so, to extensive criticism as not
providing sufficiently for defense
against court action, were sanc-
tions applied.
You are also aware, that in the
present climate, the application of
sanctions by SGC against any one'
of a variety of groups would' De
subjected to a critical court test.
Such a test would involve not only
the legitimacy of the delegation
of such authority by the Univer-
sity to SGC, but would ramify to
include the broader issue of the'
University's right to impose reg-
ulations and to apply sanctions
for the breach thereof.

most certainly be raised to it. At
the moment, I do not believe that
it does so.
For these reasons, I respectfully
request that SGC reconsider the
regulations which it has proposed,
and that it involve itself with our
office in the comprehensive .study
of the larger problem to which the
community is now addressing it-
self.
In the meantime, I believe that
the existing regulations properly
utilized by SGC and the. student
organizations most intensely con-
cerned, does provide, under Sec-
tion 3, sufficient protection for
those individuals who wish to have
their group associations remain
anonymous.

the girls. A decision of the board
would require a majority vote, and
would be binding to both sides.
The final point concerning ar-
bitration appeared to be a major
one. David Cowley, Director of

The defense, however, will file

grounds that Wagner harassed the

day to a statement by Wagner

I thus raise the question as to
whether SGC does not, in its pro-
posed regulations, encourage the
idea of secret organizations on
this campus.
Additionally, in this connection,
I am curious to know whether
paragraph (3) of the proposed
regulations, pertaining to special
requirements for cooperatives, in-
ternational house, and fraternities
and sororities, is intended to re-
quire these groups to provide
membership lists, while exemp-
ting other groups. If so, this is a
sort of discrimination which I be-
lieve is hard to justify. If not, I
believe that the specific intent of
Council should be spelled out more
clearly than it presently is.
Due Process
" The issue of due process, ap-

proceding with a thorough ex-
amination of the issue of due pro-
cess in the application of any
sanctions, with a view to develop-
ing a model legally sound system
which would be defensible in the
face of court test. I have already
indicated (letter of Monday, Oct.
24) that I believe that this is a
complex issue which will require
careful and lengthy study. The
exercise of authority by SGC over
student organizations must, I be-
lieve, be an integral part of the
general regulatory system of the
University.
