Indiana Passes Discount Bill

Judiciary Recommends
Women's Rules Changes

*J- I


Senate of the University of Indi-
ana has created a University Stu-
dent Discount Commission.
The bill creating the commission
provides for student discount cards
to be sold to students at a cost of
35 cents a semester or 50 cents a
year, with the money going to
student government.
The bill allots three per cent of
the money to the bureau's commis-
sioner as a scholarship and two
and a halfper cent to each of two
deputy commissioners.
Local businessmen would sign
contracts with the student govern-
ment committing them to give dis-
counts on various items to all card
Objectors to the commission had
complained about the cost both to:
the student government and the
student body. They also objected
to the idea of discount cards, say-
ing that the business should give
discounts tohall students with iden-
tification cards.
EVANSTON-A motion to let

students decide if they want to be
taxed 25 cents apiece per year to
finance Senate activities has been
passed by the Student Senate of
Northwestern University.
The motion will be voted on at
the spring elections May 2. If the
tax is approved, the Senate will
be required to adopt an amend-
ment enabling it to levy taxes.
If the vote is negative, it will
be considered binding for the term
of the Senate in office at the time.
The president of the Senate ex-
plained the need for the tax by
noting that the Senate's present
income is inadequate to cover Na-
tional Student Association ex-
penses, various student confer-
ences and other programs.

stay of action was put on the
Council by a call of the Board in
Review and was not lifted.
Appeals to Regents
SGC appealed to the Board of
Regents, but the decision of the
Board in Review was not rescinded.
The Sigma Kappa case high-
lighted the need for a broader pro-
vision concerning discrimination
in student organizations, and two
such statements were passed soon
In 1959 whether spurred by the
Sigma Kappa case or simply a
general feeling that a stand was
needed, the Regents passed Bylaw

criminate against any person be-
cause of race, color, religion, creed,
national origin, or ancestry. Fur-
ther, it shall work for the elimi-
nation of discrimination in private
organizations recognized by the
University and from non-Univer-
sity sourcesnwhere students and

stitute of Interior Design at 1:30

And at the same time SGC estab-
lished the Committee on Member-
ship in Student Organizations
which has the power to investigate
charges of violation of the regula-
tion, and to initiate its own in-
vestigations. It can then make
recommendations of corrective
and/or disciplinary action to the
Council, which has final authority.
Asks for Statements
In December of 1960 the Council
passed a motion requiring sub-
mission of membership statements
and interpretation of the groups'
ability to comply with the regula-

mission of statements was set.

their statements, which must be
Sigma Nu is the first case to be
brought before SGC by the Com-
mittee on Membership. The Com-
mittee has asked that Sigma Nu be

to comply with the regulation.
Group Asks Waiver
The group has requested a
waiver from its, national, but ac-
cording to the national's policy it
must be in clear danger of having
its recognition withdrawn before
such a provision can be set up.
The case today will be heard
against a backlog of concern over
discrimination, but although the
University and SGC both have
policies which staunchly prohibit
discrimination there are also sev-
eral positions on how such matters
shall be implemented.
There is the philosophy of "good
faith" and concern with each indi-
vidual case, over and above any
possible precedents in one direc-
tion or the other; and there are
strong feelings both for the "hard"
and "soft" line.
Tonight the Council will begin
its fact-finding, which will eventu-
ally lead into the executive session

The outcome will be a part of the
long line of events that have taken
place in the past.

The proposal came up during a
discussion on "the long-range
goals" of the University.
Debate was also raised as to how
much professional or vocational
preparation should be included in
the undergraduate program. Po-

from zero to 33 per cent.

BERKELEY-While not backing
a specific plan, the executive com-
mittee of the student government
at the University of California has
voted to "express its positive in-
terest" in the honor system idea.
It also encouraged students and
student organizations "to study
the various types of honor codes
on other university campuses."
Members of the executive com-
mittee agreed that further discus-
sion of the idea was needed before
they could present a detailed rec-
ommendation to the faculty and
administration. At present the

of the Regents-acting through
SGC-to impose these sanctions
on an organization.

fair amount of confusion" between
two different questions concerning
discrimination in University or-
The first question, he explains,
is whether the Regents have the
authority to enforce non-discrimi-
nation. The second issue is, does
the Fourteenth Amendment to the
United States Constitution require
withdrawal of discriminating or-
ganizations, whether or not the
Regents choose to take action?
He says that, while the answer
to the second question is still un-
certain, the first question is the
pertinent one in the present situ-
ation, and the two issues should
not be confused with each other.
Prof. Harris points out his views

on the legal aspects of the dis-
crimination issue are "only
guesses; since no cases of this pre-
cise type have arisen before."
"However, if the Regents, and
their delegate, SGC, assure pro-
cedural fairness to the affected
fraternity, I have no real fears
that the courts will overturn the
Regents' action," he concludes.

Views Music
"In art there can be no progress
in a scientific sense, but only evo-
lution," Philipp Jarnach, German
conductor and composer, said in a
talk and panel discussion yester-
No new composition detracts
from the beauty or significance of
any previous work but only adds
to the wealth of expression in the
media. The evolution comes with
new techniques, he explained.
Discussing the atonal music of
Schoenberg, Stravinsky and other
composers, Jarnach commented
that this is not really "new music."
"Atonality is a new structure of
chords, but does not violate or dis-
pel the everlasting principles of
musical form, which are repetition,
variation and contrast," he ex-
Evolutionary Process
Jarnach pointed out that the
appearance of atonality was not
at all sudden, but an evolutionary
process in techniques. He spoke of
the influence of Moussorgsky on
Debussy's new perspective on har-
mony. Further experimentation led
to the first atonal work, "Electra,"
by Richard Strauss.
The first formalization of the
rules of atonality was set by
Schoenberg, a German composer,
and found expression in "Erwar-
tung" written in 1912, Jarnach
continued. Stravinsky also relied
upon atonality in "Sacre du Prin-
temps," he added.
Jarnach explained that Schoen-
berg formalized the serial system,
or order of notes
No Traditional Tonality
"A return to traditional tonality
seems unthinkable," Jarnach said.
"We might see a rise in semi-tonal
music such as Bartok wrote. Ser-
ial music seems now to be at a
dead end. It has failed to produce
anything great after Schoenberg."
"A composer will write to ex-
press himself to other human be-
ings, to convey an idea or feeling,
and the only music which can do
that is the kind which remains in-
telligible according to the laws of
accoustics and the physiology of
hearing," explained Jarnach in
discussing the age old "why and
how of art."

matic apartment permission for
senior women. The council feels
that if a woman is responsible
enough to be allowed apartment
living, she should not have the
limitation of hours as in a dormi-
tory. It is also hoped that the
elimination of hours will induce a
number of women who would leave
their halls for apartment living to
The report asks that the 11 p.m.
closing hour for freshmen women
be eliminated and that a "uniform
closing hour, 12:00 midnight, Sun-
day through Thursday, be insti-
The council feels that this re-
quest is justified, "since the Uni-
versity libraries are open until
midnight, and it would be to the
women's academic advantage.
(And since) the freshman woman
is mature enough to accept the re-
sponsibility of . . . this one hour."
After careful deliberation, coun-
cil recommended that "guests be
allowed to stay in women's resi-
dences while classes are not in
session and between finals and
registration." Currently, only one
or two dormitories are kept open
during mid-semesters, and this
causes problems for foreign stu-
dents or students for whom travel
is impossible.
Council also asked that male
(and female) guests "be allowed to
enter a woman's room on Sunday,
2-5 p.m." since it is during that
time parents are most frequently
visiting the University, and since
the privilege is already extended to
"many of the smaller living units."
Although a majority of the
houses included in the survey ex-
pressed the desire and "need" to
retain a sign-out system, it was
recognized that a revision in the
system is necessary.
The council advised that in or-
der "to make the present sign-out
system more effective," the fol-
lowing suggestions be studied:
"1) More stringent enforcement
of the regulation.
"2) Requirement of more detail-
ed information (as to where wom-
en) go.
"3) Requirement of compulsory
sign-outs with no penalty for (not
signing in or out).
1'4) More convenient means of
implementation, i.e., buddy sys-
tem, timeclock, corridor lists, per-
sonal card file . .."
The change in the late-minute
makeup system was submitted by
a committee from Betsy -Barbour,
and asks that no penalty be ad-
ministered until 11 late minutes

are accumulated. At this point, the
woman must makeup 90 minutes
on a Friday or Saturday night.
The Barbour committee report
stated that this will spare women
who are only one minute late, due
to circumstances beyond their
control, the necessity of making up
Also recommended by Women's
Judic was a revision in policy so
that overnight (visiting) permis-
sion in Ann Arbor be granted to
upperclass women when the hos-
tess is 25 or under. The present
policy states that the hostess must
be 25 years or more and married
or a relative.
In defining the roles of resident
directors and house governments,
the report states that there is a
large area where the duties of the
director and the government over-
The recommendation states that
the resident director should exist
in an advisory position-to aid the
women with social or academic
problems, but she should not in-
terfere with house government or
the policies which Judiciary Coun-
cil set aside as the responsibility
of the house government.
Such responsibilities would in-
clude internal house policy which
effects the welfaresof residents in
the house, such as guest calling
hours; open-open houses (Assem-
bly Dormitory Council now sets
the policy for all dormitories) ;
dress regulations; sit-down meal
Legulations; implementation of the
sign-out system; and parents vis-
iting rooms.
Any changes made by house
government would have to be sub-
mitted to the resident director,
whose opinions "shall be given ex-
tensive consideration," and any
new policy "shall be passed by a
two-thirds majority vote of the
entire resident membership."
