Five Sororities
Lose Recognition
National Officials Dispute Policies
On Discrimination at Lake Forest
Five sororities at Lake Forest College have lost their national
charters in a dispute over the right of national sorority officials
to dictate local policy relating to racial and religious discrimination.
'The five houses are also represented here at the University.
They are Alpha Delta Pa, Alpha 'Phi, Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omega
and Gamma Phi Beta.
Thursday, Wake Forest President William Graham. Cole said

he had informed the

alumni of

the' college that the charters were
- "withdrawn by the national groups
because of the policies adopted by
the school's trustees in 1958 and
last June.
Special Committee
"We established a special com-
mittee ,of faculty, students and
alumni, which passed on the reso-
lution after commencement last
June, which recommended to the
Board of Trustees that the anti-
discrimination resolution be pass-
ed," Cole said.
The resolution stated that the

new chairman;

.. . in sociology.
Name Three
To Head Units
Of University
The Regents yesterday appointed
Prof. Clarence K. Pott as chair--
man of the German department,
Prof. Guy E. Swanson as head of
the sociology department and Prof.
Samuel P. Hayes, Jr. as director
of the Center for Research De-
Prof. Pott, who has been acting
chairman since the retirement of
Prof. Henry Nordmeyer last year,
was appointed for a four-year
term ending June 30, 1965.
A graduate of Calvin College in
Grand Rapids, he became a teach-
ing fellow in German at the Uni-
versity in 1938, and in 1943 re-
ceived his doctorate from the
University. .
Prof. Pott was born in Amster-
dam, Netherlands and 'became a
naturalized United States citizen
in 1941.,
Swanson Appointed
Prof. Swanson was appointed as
chairman of the department of
sociology for a five-year term end-
ing June 30, 1966. Prof. Amos
Hawley had asked to be relieved of .
the chairmanship so he can return'
to teaching and research.
Prof. Swanson received both his
bachelor's and master's degrees~
from the University of Pittsburgh
and in 1948 received his doctorate
from the University of Chicago.
He inined the Tniversity faculty

social or fraternal organizations
"having complete autonomy in
selecting their local membership."
"We realized that progress along
these lines takes time, and cannot
be done overnight. We offered the
sororities time to work within
their own groups and we also of-
fered them any help we could
give," he said.
Notified Sororities
"We then sent copies of the reso-
lutions to the national offices of
the sororities, and in late August
the local chapters received word
that their charters were being re-
voked," Cole said.
Cole, in his letter to the alumni,
said that the college is not anti-
sorority or anti-fraternity, but is
opposed to discrimination. He said
that the college is not insisting
that "any group on campus must
include members of minority
groups," but only that they have
the "right to do so if they choose.
"We will welcome the five na-
tionals back at any time they will
give us assurance that the local
chapters will be free to select their
members without asking the per-
mission of any national or alumni
group," Cole said. .
To Discuss
Cole said the sorority members
are to discuss next week whether
they should continue to operate
without national support. He said
the school "will give them every
assistance, even financial aid, if
necessary" to function.

The Latin American countries
are not going to emerge in the

He also said that the Latin

Forceful action should be taken against Cuba in order to restore

DEAN DEBORAH BACON has resigned. Her resignation
marks a significant step in a process which must radically
change the role of the student at this University.
Miss Bacon has been the object of controversy, rumor
and myth for many years-some of it inherent in the difficult
role necessarily played by a dean of women, some of it aris-
ing from her own forceful personality.
Even her critics have frequently respected and liked Mips
Bacon. But we feel strongly that her resignation as Dean of
Women is in the best interests of the University.
For as Dean of Women, Miss Bacon has represented poli-
cies which are no longer acceptable in the University comnu-
nity-extreme paternalism, the stifling of individual expres-
sion, the restriction of open association.
CHARACTERISTICALLY, Dean Bacon herself has givenr
the best and bluntest reason why she can no longer con-
tinue as Dean of Women. In her statement to the Regents,
she said ". . . I personally am not in tune with some of the
changes which seem inevitable in the years ahead."
Hopefully, Dean Bacon's resignation means her policies
will be discontinued. This is not enough. Ahead must be the
shaping of a philosophy and the creation of a structure for
the Office of Student Affairs which will minimize arbitrary
control and maximize individual responsibility.
Attainment of this goal does not lie exclusively with the
Study Committee on the Office of Student Affairs. It rests
with every administrator, faculty member and student.

Regents Establish Center,
For Cardiac Research
A Center for Research in Diseases of the Heart and Circulation
and Related Disorders was established by the Regents yesterday.
The center, co-sponsored by the medical and public health
schools, will be financed by a seven year grant from the United
States Public Health Service totalling about $500,000 a year.
The center "will conduct continuing research into the origins
and prevention of cardiovascular and related disorders, and pro-

mote collaboration between in-
vestigations conducted in the
community, the clinic, and the
laboratory," the proposal for the
center stated.
Use Existing Facilities
The Center will use existing fa-
cilities for laboratory and field
station studies. A long range com-
munity health study at Tecum-
seh, Mich., will be one of the nu-
clei of the new research activities.
While the center does not plan
to hire additional staff at this
time, it expects to hire additional
staff to meet its needs as the
program expands.
As part of its goal to determine
the conditions which trigger heart
disease, the center plans health
studies of whole communities such
as the one in Tecumseh. Such
investigation will help find the
inter-relationships between heart
disease genetic influences and en-
vironmental factors such as diet,
employment and socio-economic

GOP Victory
Seen Creating
The overwhelming majority of
Republicans at the Constitutional
Convention gives an even greater
opportunity and responsibility for
the delegates than anticipated,
Richard VanDusen, Oakland
County delegate said last night.
VanDusen spoke to Young Re-
publicans from Michigan Colleges
who are on campus to draft con-
con resolutions for delegates.
"The position of Republican
representatives to con-con, is to
write a constitution for all the
citizens of Michigan. If this at-
tempt is a failure, they will receive
the blame, he said.

Several Requests
President Hatcher indicated
that' Miss Bacon has spoken to
Lewis, her superior, several times
in the last two or three years,
about transferring from her ad-
ministrative duties to teaching.
She presently teaches one intro-
ductory course in English litera-
"I must express unbounded ad-,
miration for Miss Bacon's abili-
ties, remarkable not only in qual-
ity but in their breadth,..extent
and versatility," President Hatch-
er told the Regents.
Loss Eased
"Her own scholarship, her abil-
ity to speak and teach and her in-.
terest in the intellectual growth
of students make it easier to ac-
cept the loss of her administrative
services to gain a teacher," he
;Regent Eugene B. Power called
conversation with Miss Bacon "al-
ways a stimulating experience,
whether you agree with her or
not." He praised the "clarity, vig-
or and humor" of her expression,
as qualities which should con-
tribute to her success as a teach-
She has "survived 11 years in a
job which is not easy," he added,
"and I can understand that she
would want to do something else."
