Acting Dean of Women Eliza-
bethe Davenport said that the co-
educational dormitories for women
will probably not include first se-
mester freshmen.
"I can see no way we can put
incoming freshmen in coed dorms
due to the option we give girls
already here. Even if there were
no option, it would still be impos-
sible since about 90 per cent of
the housing contracts have already
been sent out."
The only Board member to vote
against co-educational housing for
the coming semester was Assem-
bly President Sally Jo Sawyer, '62.
"I am not opposed to co-educa-
tional housing-in fact, I'm quite
in favor of it. The whole proposal
was simply rushed through-they
didn't consultthe people involved,
at all," she said.
"Victor Vaughan and Geddes
Co-op will not be women's hous-
ing next semester. We don't know
what Vaughan will be converted
to, and although the girls living
here and in Geddes have been told
they may move as a house to a
different dormitory, it presents
quite a problem."
Miss Sawyer said that one of
the chief problems will arise from
the fact that present house offi-
cers may possibly not be permitted
to officiate in the co-educational
dorms, and that the women will
miss a good deal of the tradition
which has developed through the
years in the various dormitories.
"The Shiel Committee told me
that it wouldn't matter if Assem-
bly had in its recommendations in
January or March since it would
be impossible to have co-educa-
tional housing in the fall, 1962
semester," Miss Sawyer said.

CREATIVE ARTS FESTIVAL:
Finney Sees Association
Of Meanings in Music
By VICKI YOUNG
"The person who certainly
wouldn't write about the subject,
patterns and meaning in music,
is the composer," Prof. Ross Lee
Finney said Sunday night at a
Creative Arts Festival lecture.
"Music is eventfulness of sound
in space," Prof. Finney said. It
has derived its meaning in three
ways: from the association of an
external event with music, from
association with words and dance
and by reflecting human emotion.
The third kind of meaning tends
to become more subtle and com- i
plex as music progresses, he add-
ed.
The composer does not like to
stress meaning in music because
it is impossible to translate musi-
cal meaning to verbal meaning.

Livant Cites Need for Youth
To Challenge Peace Experts

Polling
Places

By SANDRA SANDELL
"Don't sell yourself short; the em-
peror may not have clothes on,"
William Livant of the Mental
Health Research Institute told stu-
dents Sunday in Jordan Hall.
Speaking on the American role
in the peace race, Livant said there
is a need for young people to
challenge the claims of exper-
tise.
"When an expert has worked
on a problem for a long time, he
may develop a blind spot or work
himself into a cul de sac," he said.
UCLA Drops,
Phi Kappa Psi
On In fraction
By MICHAEL HARRAH
and ELLEN SILVERMAN
LOS ANGELES - The Univer-
sity of California at Los Angeles
suspended Phi Kappa Psi frater-
nity for illegal initiation prac-
tices.
According to UCLA officials
there was no question that fra-
ternity members participated in
physical abuse and hazing of
pledges.
Phi Psi will be eligible for re-
instatement only if its national
organization and the UCLA ad-
ministration both recommend such
action.
The fraternity will no longer
be allowed to participate in rush-
ing, pledging, social activities or
voting in UCLA Interfraternity
Council for an indefinite period.

STANFORD- September, 1963.
will mark the demise of the geog-
raphy department at Stanford
University.
The two top professors in the
department are retiring at that
time and the board of trustees de-
cided, since "it is so difficult to
find satisfactory replacements," to
close the department as a separ-
ate unit.
Basic geography courses will be
continued as a part of the curric-
ula in other departments, however.
AMES--The Iowa State board
of regents has approved an elec-
tive Reserve Officers Training
Program for that school.
Under the new program, which
will be instituted in September,
students may elect either basic
ROTC or an equivalent number of
academic credits.
The switch was the result of a
year-long study by a special fac-
ulty committee, which revealed
that the Defense Department does
not consider compulsory ROTC
Inecessary.

"That is why new blood is im-
portant."
Livant said students can hold
leaders responsible for their deci-
sions, and noted that there fre-
quently is a line of buck-passing
in decision making.
As an example, a congressman
may say that a matter should be
left up to the President. Then the
President in making the decision,
says he has acted in accordance
with public opinion.
Livant also said "the incorrect
use of symbols in language places
limits on one's ability to think."
"Phrases like 'adequate inspec-
tion control,' 'credible deterrent,'
and dozens of others frequently
roll off our tongues," Livant con-
tinued.
One should ask what "adequate"
means. "Does it mean 'perfect'?"
he continued. "One should for-
mulate questions about these sym-
bols," Livant advised. "Behind the
mask, there may be no face, or a
face imperfectly formed."
One should attempt to find sit-
uations in one's own common ex-
perience, for example in the fam-
ily, which are analogous to those
of the Cold War, Livant said. If
one can do this, he can demo-
cratize problem solving, thereby
making it relevant to one's every-
day experiences.
The problems of militarism and
arms suppliers tie in with those
of unemployment and changing
patterns in industry and skills,
Livant said.
Livant said that it is a premise
of democracy that the people are
entitled to information. If the in-
formation is not available to all,
it should not be admissible in
an argument, Livant added. Re-
lying on the phrase "classified
information" may merely be erect-
ing a facade to cover up erron-
eous evidence, he said.
