Panhel Approves
New Honor Code
Plan Reduces Bidding Restrictions,
Liberalizes Rushing Procedures
Panhellenic Association voted overwhelmingly last night to
abolish their present honor code in favor of one that makes pos-
sible greater contact between affiliated and independent women.
The new honor code will enable houses to bid anyone but
first semester freshmen any time in the fall semester after fall
rush. Likewise, those houses which have not made maximum quota
in the spring may bid second semester freshmen and upperclass-
men any time after formal spring rush. Houses may not extend
a bid to first semester fresh-

Gold Offers
Adviser Plany
To Sororities
"What you need in sorority
houses are young faculty couple
who would replace present house
directors," Prof. Martin Gold o
the psychology department said
yesterday at the Panhellenic Coun.
cil meeting.
Prof. Gold was invited to spea
at the meeting as part of Panhel's
program to redirect itself towarc
greater emphasis on the scholastic
and educational aspects of college
I ife.
According to Karen Boatman
'65, scholarship chairman, the ve-
hicle for the establishment of thi
sharing of perspectives progran
between affiliated women and fac-
* ulty members would be a faculty
associate program. Through suc
a program, faculty members could
become associate members of a
sorority house and drop in in-
formally at any time for meals
and for a talk with the girls.
Against Associate Program
Prof. Gold did not seem to thini
that such a program would fulfil
the objectives that the girls rwis]?
to accomplish.
Improving the public image o:
sororities was the first goal out.
lined by the girls. "The image w
now present possibly does noi
correspond to the roles set by the
University for the student. W
' want to find a means to mov
closer to the University," Mist
Boatman said.
Bari Telfer, '65, Panhel execu-
tive vice-president, proposed the
second objective. "We want greater
contact with faculty members or
an informal basis. There should
be rre contact between the aca-
demic community and sororit3
women," she said.
Rewarding but Unsuccessful
Prof. Gold, who is presently fac-
ulty asociate for Newberry Hall
said that the experience has beer
very rewarding. but that such w
program would not accomplist
these goals.
"I drop over informally very
seldom, not because I do not feel
welcome but because there isn't
enough time," he said. "Time is
a strong pressure mitigating in-
formal visits."
"Secondly, there are intangible
barriers to dropping in informal-
ly," he continued. "Although yo
know you are welcome, it is still
a difficult thing to do. I fee]
more comfortable when I am
formally invited," Prof. Gold ad'd-
Not Unique Problem
"The problem you are facing is
not unique to sororities and does
not stem from the sorority sys-
tem," Prof. Gold emphasized. "You
are dealing with the problem of
the intellectual value system which
sometimes breeds disdain and con-
tempt for other value systems," he
"These prejudices of the intel-
lectual, the faculty, can only be
overcome by exchanges of values
which does not happen overnight"
he emphasized. "One or two infre-
quent visits by a faculty associate
would not accomplish this."
Prof. Gold said that what it
needed is more constant contact
between faculty members and the
sororites. "This can only be ac-
complished by having faculty
members living in the houses," he
Many Changes
"A great many changes would
have to be made before such a
system could be instituted," Jan
Miller, advisor to Panhel said.
"Perhaps we could start by hav-

ing couples living nearby and tak-
ing most of their meals at the
houses and giving the wives some
responsibility so the couples would
have regular contact with the
houses," Miss Miller suggested.
The suggestion of Prof. Gold re-
ceived a favorable initial reaction
from the house presidents and
many of them showed an interest
in investigating the proposal fur-

men at any time.
Retained in the new code is the
provision excluding sorority wom-
en from independent housing units
and unaffiliated girls from soror-
ity houses during formal rushing
Can Speak Freely
Affiliated women wil now be
able to speak freely to independ-
ent women about rush and any
aspect of the sorority system.
Freshmen women can be present
in sororities any time except dur-
ing the formal rushing periods.
The previous honor code for-
bade any women who did not have
the opportunity to go through rush
on the Michigan campus from vis-
iting a sorority house.
The old code also forbids wom-
en from "knowingly influencing
a girl's decision pertaining to rush
either directly or indirectly." It
places all women on their hon-
or "not to discuss rush in any
groups where both affiliated and
Independent women are present."
To Benefit Small Houses
One possible argument in fa-
vor of the new code was the hope
that houses which have not made
their quotas during formal rush
would be able to benefit from
the more intimate basis of an
open rushing situation.
Speakers at the meeting con-
tended that freshmen girls have
preconceived notions of sororities
that may inhibit them or prevent
them from returning to some of
the less popular houses. It is hop-
ed that under the new regula-
tions freshmen women will be able
to judge the houses on a more
equal basis.
Opposition to the proposal was
based mainly on the fear that such
a system would lead to "dirty
rushing." Some of the sorority
presidents and rush chairmen
present saw the chance of a few
girls being highly pressured by
some of the more powerful houses.
Dirty Rush
Panhel President Ann Wickins,
'65, pointed out that dirty rush
would not be possible. "Sorority
women do not have the time or
their houses the funds to' invite
1300 women to dinner." Miss Wic-
kins sees competition forming
along natural lines.
The new code was recommend-
ed by the Panhel rush study com-
mittee and approved by the Exec-
utive Council of the all-sorority
organization. It was passed to rem-
edy the conflict between the new
fall rushing system and the pre-
vious honor code.
Zanzibar Leader
Frees Prisoners
ZANZIBAR R)--On the heels
of his union with Tanganyika,
President Abeid Karume toured
the jails and prison camps in
Zanzibar yesterday and personally
ordered the release of 1000 politi-
cal prisoners.
He was making good on a prom-
ise made in a speech Wednesday
that all but the major enemies
of the people would be out of jail
in time to attend a May Day
celebration today.
Most of the prisoners were Arabs
who had been jailed since the is-1
land's January revolution.

Senate May
Vote on Bill
majority leader Mike Mansfield
(D-Mont) expressed some confi-
dence yesterday that the jury trial
amendment to the civil rights bill
can be brought to a vote next
week without trying to invoke
"Very encouraged" was the way
Mansfield pictured the outlook for
getting a vote without a show-
down debate-limiting attempt.
As dickering over this went on
behind the scenes, the Senate roll-
ed through its 44th day of debate
on the House-passed bill. Sen. Hu-
bert H. Humphrey (D-Minn), floor
manager for the measure, flatly
predicted "there will be amend-
ments" and that President Lyn-
don B. Johnson will accept some
This apparently was an official
change in the administration's
stand that the bill must be passed
by the Senate with no changes.
There had previously been defin-
ite indications the supporters of
the measure, including adminis-
tration officials, were reconciled
to accepting several changes.
Early in the day Senate Repub-
lican leader Everett M. Dirksen
(Ill) said he hoped an agreement
could be announced for a vote
next week on the jury trial amend-
But Mansfield said he and
Dirksen had concluded after a
round of conferences that "it
would be inadvisable to try to get
an agreement this week" setting
a time for a vote.
Mansfield said he and Dirksen
will try and give senators "plenty
of notice when a vote might be
Indications were that the Sen-
ate leaders hope a vote could be
mustered next Wednesday or
Thursday, without any announced
agreement and without a limita-
tion on debate.
Cloture has never been invoked
successfully in civil rights de-
bates. It takes two-thirds of sen-
ators voting to accomplish this.
[s To Subdue

The University awaits its chance
to apply for $1.3 million in fed-
eral funds for an addition to the
General Library.
The funds became available by
a $1.2 billion federal program to
aid in the construction of educa-
tion facilities. The library addi-
tion would cost $5 million overall.
The bill appropriating specific
funds for the federal program has
passed the House of Representa-
tives in Washington. It is await-
ing passage in the Senate, accord-
ing to John Muntone, legislative
liaison of the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
Construction Grants
The pending bill will provide
$463 million in direct grants, and
loans for construction this coming
fiscal year. The program will then
be renewed for two more years.
Of this sum $60 million will be
available for graduate institutions.
It is for part of this amount that
the University will apply.
According to the provisions of
the bill, the University will apply
directly to the Commissioner of
Education in Washington. Then,
after reviewing the University's
application, the money will be ap-
Also included in the bill are
measures for the construction of
undergraduate buildings and loans
for further construction.
$230 will be available for un-
dergraduate construction. If the
University wishes part of this
money, it will apply to a state
commission of education. On the
basis of the recommendation of
this commission, money will be
Federal Pay
Raise Passed
By Committee
strong push from President Lyn-
don B. Johnson, a new pay-in-
crease bill for 1.7 million federal
workers won House committee ap-
proval yesterday.
The main difference between
the new bill and the one defeated
by the House last month is that
the proposed annual raise for
members of Congress is trimmed
from $10,000 to $7500. They now
make $22,500 a year.
The prospect of explaining to
the voters why they gave them-
selves a $10,000 raise was a major
factor in the 222-184 vote by which
the House defeated the original
bill on March 12.
Rep. H. R. Gross (R-Ia) one of
the three Republican members of
the House Post Office and Civil
Service Committee who voted
against approving, the new bill,
quickly carried his opposition to
the House floor.
There he complained that the
new bill was delivered to commit-
tee members only Wednesday, and
approved yesterday on a 14-3 vote
with no hearings or witnesses.
The raises for career employes
and postal workers covered by the
new bill would be the same as in
the earlier version, ranging from
less than three per cent at the
bottom to about 22 per cent at
the top.
Also, raises for top officials and
congressmen would take effect
next Jan. 1 instead of in July. All
other raises would be effective on
the first payday after enactment.

Castro Warns U.S. Against
Sending Planes over Cuba
HAVANA (p)-Prime Minister Fidel Castro warned yesterday
against more United States lane flights over Cuba, declaring: "We
will defend our sovereignty, whatever it may cost. and wherever it
may happen."I
He said he is ready to seek a peaceful solution to problems with
his North American neighbor but if the Americans want war "there
will be war."
Castro made the statement during the course of a four-hour talk
with foreign newsmen and diplomats at a Japanese diplomatic

reception that stretched into the'
early morning hours.
To 'Hit' U.S. Flights
His remarks set the stage for
an address he will deliver today
at Havana's big May Day cele-
bration. Diplomats expect him to
hit hard at the U.S., which "as
announced the reconnaissance
flights will continue despite Cub-
an protests. The Soviet Union has
supported Cuba's protests.
"We will prevent these flights
to the limits of what our weap-
ons can do," Castro asserted.
He did not specify that meant
Cuba would use Soviet rockets to
try to bring down American planes.
Russian Missiles
Without mentioning any defi-
nite date, the Cuban leader said
the ground-to-air rockets now con-
trolled by Russians "will be hand-
ed over to Cuba."
It had become known in Wash-
ington previously that hundreds
of U.S. jet fighter. bombers and

dent with assualting an 18-year-
old Negro at Michigras last Satur-°

Chairman Rep. Arnell Engstrom
(R-Traverse City) recommended
"non-concurrence" with his m-
mittee's suggested $7 million
slashes for higher education.
Voice Vote
His request came only a few
hours after a Republican caucus
had "strongly urged", that the
funds be restored, Rep. Gilbert E.
Bursley (R-Ann Arbor) said. The
official adoption of Engstrom's
recommendation, by a voice vote,
was necessary to set the bill up
for the final passage by the mid-
night deadline tonight.
The capital outlay bill, from
which the ways and means com-
mittee deleted $300,000 of the
University portion, was also set
for final passage today - with
the cuts intact. '
Some of the money may be re-
stored by a joint conference com-
mittee, Bursley said. The House
and Senate will have to confer
over differences in their capital
outlay bills.
The only major difference in
the bills would be the $300,000 for
the University.
Members of the House, includ-
ing Michael O'Brien (D-Detroit)
were pressing to have 'oth bills
sent back to committee under the
parliamentary escape that "there
were errors made."
But, conceding to the will of the
Republican caucus majority, Rep.
Wilfred 'G. Bassett (R-Jackson)
declared that "we must get these
bills set for third reading (final
passage) right now." He explain-
ed that the committee deadline
had expired and that the House's
deadline was only 24 hours away.
'Not Satisfied''
After the Houe had disposed of
the capital outlay and budget bills,
Rep. Carroll Newton (R-Delton)
conceded, "I'm not satisfied with
the bills, but a number of Re-
publicans just didn't approve of
the committee's changes."
The reversal of the ways and
means committee recommenda-
tions was considered a rare ac-
tion. Bassett had indicated Tues-
day that only about one in 20
bills reported out of committee is
changed drastically on the floor.
Legislators said, however, that
'Romney, whose prestige and $131
million request were at stake, had
exerted little pressure.
Lobbying Campain
Qualified sources reported that
a strong lobbying camaign had
been carried on by both educa-
tors and legislators who have state
supported schools located in their

come today when the House is
predicted to pass the bill by "a
huge majority," Bursley indicated

Further Fighting in Cyprus
NICOSIA WP)-Reacting swiftly after a truce-breaking skirm-
ish between Greek and Turkish Cypriots, the United Nations peace-
keeping force planted 13 observation posts on the Kyrenia moun-
tains yesterday in an effort to discourage further fighting.
Roving UN patrols had failed to stem hostilities in that hot-
test sector of a war which Secretary-General U Thant is trying
now to end through a new nine- t

point peace plan.

Canadian infantry units rang-
ing from 4 to 36 men manned the
mountain posts. They were link-
ed by scout cars and radio. A
spokesman said the arrangement
meant "a more active approach"
by the UN force.
The soldiers told newsmen they

'immediately. In setting up the
posts, they expelled armed men
