Kernbersh ip Ruling Effective Today
Late World News
By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND-SAMUEL H. SHEPPARD was acquitted last
night in the 1954 bludgeon slaying of his first wife Marilyn, a
crime for which he already had spent nine years in prison.
The jury of seven men and five women took nearly 12 hours
to acquit the 42-year-old former osteopath of second-degree
murder in the retrial he won last June in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Sheppard served his nine years after another jury-in a
courtroom just four steps across the hall-convicted him of
second-degree murder Dec. 21, 1954.
The defendant did not take the stand in his retrial where 31
witnesses testified, compared with 70 at the nine-week first trial
when the jury deliberated five days. At the first trial the charge
was first-degree murder, and the state asked the death penalty.
A DEFENSE DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN said last night
that leaflets passed out on campus yesterday quoting Robert
McNamara were fraudulent. The leaflets referred to an address
supposedly made before an American Legion convention in Den-
ver, Colo., Tuesday in which McNamara allegedly said that
"..,. those students in the lower half of their class or incoming
freshmen will be the first to be reclassified if their schools and
colleges refuse to make their rank available." The Defense
Department points out that McNamara has been in Washington
for the past few days.
Members of Voice Political Party said they are not respon-
sible for the leaflets, which appeared under supposed SDS
FRANCIS A. ALLEN, Dean of the Law School, yesterday de-
livered the first of a series of Robert S. Marx Lectures at the
University of Cincinnati. The lecture was entitled, "Civil Dis-
obedience and the Legal Order."
Allen pointed out that there were inequities in the laws and
therefore, "civil disobedience is intelligible, however mistaken,
if it results in the disobedience to an unjust law."

"STUDENTS AT THREE OUT OF FOUR state colleges and
universities are paying higher tuition, fees, room, and/or board
charges this year than they were last year."
This was revealed in a survey released Tuesday at the first
joint meeting of the National Association of State Universities
and Land-Grant Colleges and the Association of State Colleges
NASULGC is an organization of 97 land-grant institutions
and major state universities in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
ASCL is made up of 206 institutions in 43 states, the District of
Columbia, and Guam.
According to the report, the most dramatic increase in stu-
dent charges in recent years is In out-of-state tuition rates. This
year's 6.53 per cent increase in out-of-state tuition and required
fees at NASULGC institutions came on top of a 19.9 per cent
jump last year.
Out-of-state tuition and fees total $500 or less at only 13
NASULOC institutions, seven of which were originally establish-9
ed as land-grant colleges for Negroes in Southern and border
The survey revealed that generally the highest tuition rates
are in the eastern part of the country, and those with the lowest
tuition and fees are in the west and south.
The University, a member of NASULGC, this year has tuition
rates of $349 for in-state, and $1,000 out-of-state, room rates of
$360, and board, $396.
New SGC Regulation
For Lists, Advisors
By ROGER RAPOPORT
New Student Government Coun-
cil regulations abolishing the re-,
quirement for campus organiza-
tions to maintain membership lists
went into effect today. Vice-Pres-
ident for Student Affairs Richard
L. Cutler had contemplated a veto
of the controversial measure.
Cutler had one week to veto the
new rules which were passed by
SGC last Thursday. Office of Stu-
dent Affairs officials affirmed to-
day that Cutler has decided to let
the measure stand.
The new procedure effectively
prohibits recurrence of the uni-
versity's disclosure of the mem-
bership lists of three left-wing
campus groups to the House Un-
American Activities Committee.
Under the new regulations. the
university will probably not have
names of members of radical poli-
tical organization to disclose.
SGC decided to revise the reg-
ulation after the school turned
in the names of 51 students and
14 faculty advisors of the groups
in response to a HUAC subpoena.
Under the new regulation, stu-
dent organizations do not have to
file the names of members or fac-
ulty advisors. Only the names of
two officers are required. Faculty
advisors are no longer mandatory
for student organizations.I
Cutler had been critical of the
council's failure to provide for
mandatory faculty advisors and£
raised questions about the advisa-
bility of permitting "clandestine
organizations" on campus.
But the University Committee
on Referral had advised Cutler'
4-3 not to veto the new regulation.
SGC said last week that it es-1
tablished the new regulations be-
cause "many students who mighti
joint an organization to learn
about it would be discouraged ifi
their names were to appear on of-
ficial membership lists.
TABULATORS IN THE SGC Election worked into the morning to compile the results of the largest
voter turn-out in SGC and University history.

is going in," he explained.
Brennan said the board discuss-
ed the types of advisory commit-
tees which will be set up to re-
view the master plan and the pro.
cedures for establishing the com-
mittees. He said the board is in
favor of including a student com-

an advisory capacity.

Oregon Student President
Forfeits 2=S Deferment
By LEE WEITZENKORN
The student body president of
the University of Oregon, Henry
Drummonds, has given up his stu-
dent draft deferment claiming
that he is against the principle
behind the 2-S deferment. Drum-
monds characterizes the present
Selective Service as an illegitimate
way of deciding which men must
fight. "It is immoral to select men
to die," he says.
n,,,mmana ,rsnts thea nathv
The idea behind the deferment,
according to Drummonds, is that
college students are the future
leaders of the country and should
therefore be allowed to complete
their education before entering
military service. However, he
maintains that the immediate
needs of the war should take pre-
cedence over education.
Drummonds says that although
a certain percentage of college
stiudnts would die in Viet Nam.
