May Ask Constitutions

Student Government Council last
night took the first step to obtain
access to fraternity and sorority
Under a motion introduced by
SOC President John Feldkamp,
'61, the Council would see copies
of those parts of the organiza-
tios' constitution to carry out its
authority to recognize and with-
draw recognition from student

Final vote will be taken Nov. 1.
Meeting later in executive ses-
sion, the Council decided to defer
until next week appointment of
the Committee on Membership

A nominating committee had
prepared a slate to fill the four
student posts on the committee,
which is charged with adminis-
tration of the University regula-

tion, approved last spring by the
Council. That forbids discrimina-
tion in student organizations
membership practices.
(The regulation specifies that
"All recognized student organiza-
tions shall select membership and
afford opportunities -to members
on the basis of personal merit,
and not race, color, religion, creed,
national origin or ancestry.")
The Council has also received a
slate of nominees from the ad-
ministration and faculty to fill the
other three posts.
Membership Specified
When the Council set up the
membership sel9ction committee,
it specified that there be at least
one administrator and one faculty
member. The remaining non-stu-
dent postisto be filled by either
fan administrator or a faculty
member as the Council chooses.
Surrenders Gavel
Feldkamp surrendered his gavel
to present the motion on access
to constitutions.
If passed, the motion would re-
quire every recognized fraternity
and sorority to file with the vice-
president for student affairs a
copy of its constitution, or consti-
tutional form.
(This form, which is the same
as the fraternities and sororities
must at present file with the
deans' offices, includes such areas
as membership requirements, of-,
ficers, nature of the organization's+
executive committee, procedures1
for meetings, amendment and4
ratification of the constitution,
and various by-laws.
(The last area contains: mem-
ber's rights and duties; dues andf
initiation fees; method of election
of officers and their duties;group
parliamentary rules; and authori-t
ties of the groups executive and
other committees.) -
Limit Access1
An "appropriate and responsibler
representative of the Office of
Student Affairs and the presidentk
of SWC would have access to the:
entire form or constitution. The
membership selection committee,:
as a committee, would be ables
to scrutinize membership clauses:
The Council would accept the
opinions of the president, the
membership committee or the Of-
fice of Student .Affairs, in lieu of
its own examination of the con-

kamp said access to constitutions
is necessary so that SGC may
carry out its jurisdiction over stu-
dent organizations. The Com-
mittee on Student Affairs, which1
had this job before it was given
to SGC, had the authority to seef
the constitutions, Feldkamp added.t

Feldkamp also said studentss
should make the rules for student 1
organizations, democratically, by
going through the Council.
He sees the motion not as am

as a means for SGC "to worke

Democratic presidential candi-
date Sen. John F. Kennedy is
expected to arrive at the Michi-

tonight and will speak briefly to
students from the steps.
The Massachusetts senator will
finish his televised debate tonight
with Vice-President Richard M.
Nixon, and then fly to Willow Run
Airport, where he is scheduled to
arrive at 11:45 p.m. After speak-

Meanwhile, several University
students have been attempting to
present both Kennedy and Nixon
with questions concerning world
peace and disarmament.
Questions Follow Play
The questions originated from
a performance of "Which Way the
Wind," presented Tuesday night
in Ldia Mendessorn Theatre.
David Macleod, Spec., inter-
rupted the play to invite the 100
spectators to submit a list of 10
questions based on the drama to
the presidential candidates. The
play was sponsored by 10 groups
and so the audience decided to
submit the questions independent-'
Talk to Be Informal
Martin Underwood, Kennedy's
advance man, said that the can-
didate's talk at the Union would
be brief, informal and would not
concern political Issues.
Kennedy begins his day-long
whistle-stop tour of Michigan to-
morrow morning at 8:30 a.m. with
a speech at the Ann Arbor train
depot. He will be met at the air-
port by Gov. G. Mennen Williams
and Lt. Gov. John B. Swainson,
who will also stay overnight at
the Union. United States Senator
Patrick V. McNamara is expected
to be with Kennedy tomorrow
morning at his depot address.
The third Nixon-Kennedy de-
bate will be broadcast on radio
stations WWJ, WXYZ, WJBK, and
WCAR at 6:30 p.m. tonight, on
station WKMH at 7 p.m. and on
station WJR at 9:30 p.m. It will
be televised simultaneously on all
area channels at 7:30 p.m.
WSU Expels
Wayne State University has
withdrawn recognition from the
legal fraternity, Delta Theta Phi.
The expulsion, which means the
fraternity may not use Wayne
State facilities for any purpose,
was caused by a restrictive clause
in the fraternity's national con-
stitution which limits membership
to white Christians.
Expulsion of the fraternity was
based on a 1954 faculty ruling
which gave fraternities and sorori-
ties at Wayne State until 1960 to
eliminate their restrictive mem-
bership clauses.
Wayne State's President Clar-
ence B. Hillberry wrote a warning
etter to the chapter's president,
Larry Fowler, this summer. When
there was no action taken on the
etter, the university withdrew
recognition of the fraternity, ef-
fective September 1, 1960.

The United States has been the chief financial prop for this
Asian kingdom, sending in millions in economic aid and paying

of his arrival from Washington.
Parsons formerly was ambassador

Souvanna faces a tough decision.
If he opens talks with General

Home Delivery
The reproduced notes will be
delivered to the students' places
of residence one or two days after
the lecture.
However, the SLA may find it
difficult to increase its coverage
of courses, due to the opinions of
the lecturers involved.
The lecturers in Political Sci-
ence 11, Prof. George A. Peek and
Prof. John P. White, feel such a'
system is educationally unsound.
Possible Violation
Prof. Peek noted that "lectures
are a professor's own property"
and "taking his ideas and selling
them for a profit may involve
violation of copyright laws."
Lecturers in History 13, Alfred
C. Jefferson and Prof. Stephen J.
Tonsor, feel there is nothing mor-
ally wrong with such an arrange-
ment, but Prof. Tonsor is defi-
nitely opposed to the idea.
"Although common in Europe, a
system of reliance on others in a

"The consequences of the 1960
election will be very great-not
so much for public policy as for
the future of American politics,"
Prof. John White of the political
science department said last night.
Prof. White told a meeting of
the Young Democrats that No-
vember 8 will decide "not Just
who will be the next president,

of faith" for so long that even the
Republicans accept it, he contin-
ued. Indeed, despite the election
of President Eisenhower in 1952
and 1956, studies by the TUniver-
sity's Survey Research Center
show that the Democrats have
held a consistent 5 to 3 margin
for the last decade.

aphernalia he uses, some of his'
conclusions seem to be drawn with

he said.
But if the polls are correct and
Nixon is elected, it will indicate
either that millions of nominal
Democrats "have made the sud-
den decision that they are really
Republicans," or that the elecor-
ate 'feels a presidential election is
"too personal for party identifi-
cation to carry over."
White Doubtful
Prof. White added that he
doubts this will happen. "Like
most political scientists, I tend
to be a form player. And the task

there are places where the issue

Another consequence of the
election this year will be the trend
in the south, Prof. White said. He
noted that in many southern cities,
businessmen's organizations have
endorsed the Nixon-Lodge ticket,
adding that "what is happening is
obvious -- conservatives in the

Eventually, this should lead to a
