Lake Forest Groups Seek Approval
By Student Government, Trustees
Lake Forest College's five sororities, which were expelled by their
nationals last summer, have reorganized as local groups, it was an-
nounced Saturday.
The college's three fraternities have continued to function with-
out change. The five sororities, which are represented on the Uni-
versity campus, have changed thgeir names so that they can operate
on the Lake Forest campus, as separate, ,locally autonomous organi-
Official recognition is still pending by the Board of Trustees,
which neets next month, and the student government council. The
sororities are Snow in operation by

Seek Change
In AssemEbl
At the Assembly Dormitory
Council meeting yesterday, Mary
Beth Norton, '64, and Denise
Wacker, '64, made a motion to
amend the ADC constitution to al-
low representation on the body to
be governed by dormitory popula-
The proposed motion would
change article four, section two of
the constitution. In this way,
houses would no longer have one
representative but ,would be al-
lowed up to three delegates, the
number determined by the size r of
the house.
Those houses with a population
of 175 women or less would have
one representative. Houses with
from 175 to 350 residents would
have two delegates, those with
more than 350 residents, three.
The representative would have
the same voting rights as those
representative now on the council.
The new delegates would also re-.
tain the right to be a voting mem-
ber of their own house council,
elected by the house.
The change will be voted on at
the next meeting of ADC after
representatives have reviewed the
motion with their houses.
A second proposed motion would
allow ADC to elect the president
of Assembly Association. At pres-
ent, the president is elected by all
members of the Association.
Students Hit
Of Education
ROCHESTER, N. Y. (/?) - Be-
tween 800 and 1,000 students
massed on the University of
Rochester campus yesterday to
protest what their leader called
the "rapidly detoriating"quality
of education at the university.
Student speakers complained
what they said were overcrowded
classes, indifferent graduate as-
sistants, and professors preoc-
cupied with research.
The university raised under-
graduate tuition last week to
$1,500 a year, an increase of $225.
Student sources said this was the
spark that started the rally.
Donald Alhart, a senior from'
Rochester, told the rally that
freshmen English classes four
years ago had 20 students and met
three times weekly. Now, he said,
they have more than 150 stu-'

temporary permission granted by
Dean of Students Howard Hooge-
Change Names
The sorority reorganization has
made the former chapter of Chi
Omega a local called Chi Omega
Chi. The former Gamma Phi Beta
chapter is now Gamma Phi Delta.
The Alpha Delta Pi chapter adopt-
ed the name Kappa Kappa Chi,.
which it had before joining the
national group in 1936.
Yesterday the former Alpha Phi
chapter decided on the name Chi
Lambda Phi. The former Alpha Xi
Delta chapter is keeping its name
as a local group but will not pledge
any more students and plans to
go out of existence when its pres-
ent members have graduated.
Temporary Decision
The new Chi Lambda Phi house
has not officially decided to go
local. But in order to continue
operating until it gets an official
word of policy from the board of
trustees, it needs to have a name
and to be organized to continue
to function.
"As a group we have decided
to go local to the extent of form-
ing committees to write a consti-
tution, as individuals we haven't
taken a vote yet. As far as I can
interpret it means we will go lo-
cal," Susan Miller, president of the
newly organized Chi Lambda Phi
house, said.
No Discrimination
The constitution of the new or-
ganizations must by necessity
contain a "no discrimination on
race, creed, or color" clause. Be-
cause of the resolution adopted
last June by the board of trustees
which bars discrimination by cam-
pus fraternities or sororities in the
selection "of pledges. The nationals
of each of the sororities took the
charters from the five without no-
tice earlier this fall.
The trustees stated student or-
ganizations must be nondiscrim-
inatory to be in harmony with the
tollege's admissions policy, which
is to accept students without re-
gard to race, religion.
The resolution insisted on selec-
tion by the local chapters unin-
fluenced by the policies of their
national organizations.
Courts To Hear

Judge M. E. Baker yesterday set
Nov. 20 for a hearing in the Mc-
Guffey Reader squabble.
A petition asked the court to
remove four of five school board

The petition cited eight causes for
removal against each of the four,
including attempts to prohibit
teaching "of certain subjects in the
social science curriculum.

Government and Katanga troops

nounced yesterday a virtual dec-
laration of war against the seces-
sionist province.

Leopoldville government said a po-
lice action had been launched to

but neither had identifying marks.
The planes flew back to Kaniama.
Elisabethville reports said this
town is the immediate objective
of the Central Government ad-
vance. It is 20 miles south of the
Kizamba battlefield.

Scientist Sees Fallout
Increase This Spring

SPlan To Move Stalin's Body T



United States and other Western
countries yesterday acciused the
Soviet Union of showing cynical
disregard of the United Nations
and mankind in general by test-
ing its massive superbomb.
And in Washington, a nuclear
scientist said yesterday he is in-
clined to_ believe the new Soviet
superbomb was a very dirty one
which would greatly increase ra-
dioactive fallout in the United
The Soviet Union told the West
it conducted the test series in
order to prevent by sheer strength
a nuclear war over Berlin that
could come at any moment.
Leap Backward
"The world has taken a great
leap backward toward anarchy
and disaster," UN Ambassador Ad-
lai E. Stevenson said in touch-
ing off a wave of denunciations
of the Russians in the Assem-
bly's main political committee:
Stevenson referred to the latest
Soviet explosion as "apparently
even larger than 50 megatons." He
said the day of the test would
be long remembered "for a dis-
play of violence on a scale un-
heard of in human history to this
Semyon K. Tsarapkin, the So-
viet delegate, did not mention the
size of the blast in replying to
Increase Pressures
He accused the United States
of increasing pressure in Berlin to
the point where a nuclear war
could come at any moment. To
prevent such a war; he added,
the Soviet Union needed all its
strength-and that is why Moscow
resumed its current test series.
Dr. Ralph E. Lapp, a non-gov-
ernment physicist, said he was
"inclined to believe the bomb was
a - very dirty one."
He expressed the belief that it
would lead to a marked increase
in radioactive fallout levels in
North America next spring.

Eldersveld Examines1Poltics

Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld of
the political science department
yesterday explained the scholars
methods and the problems he faces
wherw~"tackling a research prob-
lem" in politics.
He has applied investigative pro-
grame of similar design to the
political party organization of both
Detroit and Amsterdam in the
Netherlands, Prof. Eldersveld told
the faculty members and graduate
students attending the first after-
noon session of the Political Sci-
ence Roundtable.
This design focuses on three
concerns: the party as a coalition
of individuals with diverse back-
grounds, attitudes and perspec-
tives; the hierarchial coherence
and managerial structure of the
party machine; and the functional
competence of the party in the
political system.
Interviews Members
In interviewing party members
to find out to what extent a party
is composed of similar or dissimi-
lar individuals-the first ,major
focus of concern-Prof. Eldersveld
tries to learn several things about
the member.
First he establishes the persons
demographic and social back-
ground. Secondly he asks about
the individual's career, his moti-
vation for taking up that line of
work, and his aspirations.
Finally .he inquires about the
individual's perspectives concern-
ing politics. Specifically, Prof.
Eldersveld asks the member what
he thinks the goal of the party is
and what role the party plays.
Additionally he wants to know
what the member's political ideol-
ogy is, what his reasons are for
actively participating in the party,
and how he sees the political en-
! vironment.

Using such data, Prof. Elders-
veld hopes to determine how
heterogeneous and homegeneous a
party's membership is and what
type .of people hold .,positions in
party organizations at the precinct
level as well as in the upper eche-
In this investigation he is seek-
ing to determine whether the view
of the party as a coalition is a
useful approach.
In studying the second major
focus. of concern-hierarchial co-
herence - Prof. Eldersveld ex-
amines the party's decision-mak-
ing process; its communication
pattern, both formal and informal.
Studies Competence
In the study of functional com-
petence-the third major area of
concern-he is attempting to ex-
amine the nature of party activity
in order to determine the impor-
