Quad Director Asks Removal
Of Lubin from Council Post

East Quadrangle Director John
Taylor has asked that Stanley
Lubin, '63E; be removed from his
position as quad social chairman
for men in East Quadrangle, Presi-
dent Joseph Dsida, '63E, said yes-
Dsida said that in a note sent
to him by Taylor Sept. 22, Taylor
said that Lubin, who was sus-
pended from and later reinstated
to the University for his role in
the 1960 food riot-panty raid, "will
not be acceptable as an East
Quadrangle officer."
Dsida, who officially fills the
post, 'wrote a lettei'to Taylor on
Sept. 29 stated, "I feel I am justi-
fied in securing the appointment
for him."
Proven Responsibility
He added that since the panty
raid, "He has proven himself a
responsible individual, capable of
sound judgement, and very much
interested in student government."
Lubin commented that "He

(Taylor) has absolutely no right
to block my appointment.
"My social probation ended last
June and he cannot prevent me.
from being on the East Quad
Council or from holding a com-
mittee chairmanship."
Anderson Comments
The present East Quad presi-
dent, Thomas Anderson, '63Ed,
said that he wishes Lubin to re-
main in his position.
Taylor refused to comment on
the issue.
Lubin still holds the position al-
though he does not live in the
quads. He is eligible as an associ-
ate member of Hinsdale House to
hold non-elective quadrangle posi-
Taylor Letter
According to Dsida, Taylor said
in his letter about Lubin, "I do
not wish him back in the Quad
and will tell him so myself if
forced into it."
It also stated that, "He was ex-
pelled from the residence halls

and told at that time that he was
not welcome to return to them,"
Dsida said.
On Sept. 31, Dsida quit his post.
However he said that his resigna-
tion was due to "personal reasons"
and had nothing to do with the
Lubin incident.
Timely Suggestions
He added that Taylor had made
many "timely suggestions" which
had been extremely helpful in his
position as East Quad president,
but his request to get rid of Lubin
was unwarranted.
Lubin also noted that Taylor
"never once objected to my ap-
pointment publicly at a council
"I hope to prove, by holding this
position, that I was not .the irre-
sponsible person that I was pic-
tured as by many administrators."
The job was originally offered
to Lubin by Dsida on an interim
basis last June. His appointment
was confirmed by the quad council
on Sept. 26.

Dean DiscouragesPaper
From Considering HUAC
Continuing pressure from the community of Flfint over the recent
student stand on the abolition of the House Committee on Un-Ameri-
can Activities has caused Cyril Charles, dean of Flint Junior College,
to suggest that the student government and the newspaper not dis-
cuss controversial national issues at present.
The problem arose after Flint JC unanimously approved the
United States National Student Association's resolution encouraging
'the aboltion of HUAC. This is "a

Presently, the constitution pro-

Precinct Work
for Turnout,
Stokes Says
The nature of the American
electorate has forced more poli-
tical precinct work into the area
of voter turnout.
That is the status of precinct
politics as Prof. Donald Stokes
of the political science depart-
ment sees it. He attributes the
orientation to voter turnout rath-
er than ideological persuasion to
four characteristics of the Ameri-
can electorate:
1) The low level of interest and
emotional involvement of * the.
American people in politics. Poli-
tics "really isn't worth arguing
about," when compared to more
immediate problems, such as "who
Junior will date tonight. That can
cause a real storm."
Low Level of Information
2) The low level of information
the public has on politics. "Many-
Americans have only a very vague
idea of the issues," Prof. Stokes, a
staff member at Survey Research
Center, said. "To a great extent
the public is without informa-
3) Widespread and relatively
fixed party loyalties. He said
American political loyalty was
"relatively free of issues." Three
out of four people will concede al-
liance to one party or the other,
and more will admit they lean
one way or the other. Only about
10 per cent will actually claim
they are truly independent.
Since the people have so little
political infornmation, they look to
one party or the other to appraise
the situation when they vote.
Relation to Voting
4) Relation of party preference
to voting turnout. Prof. Stokes
said that the decisions of whether
one would vote and how he would
vote were quite separate. He com-
pared it to going to a football
game: "The decision of whether
or not you go to the game has no
effect on whether you cheer for

dent opinion will be brought to
Student Government Council to-
night by David Croysdale, '63.
The motion states. that SGC

affect the interests and affairs of
the student body during the tenure
at the University, or in their sub-
sequent position as alumni.

larly those regarding national or

hot issue in the community,"
Charles said.
Question Before Board
The question now before the
student activities board, compris-
ed of faculty members and stu-
dent organization leaders, is to
determine the scope of issues
which the student government and
the newspaper can discuss.
The board is studying the prob-
lem and will formulate a policy
in the next four or five weeks,
Charles said. He would not com-
ment on the nature of the policy
at this time.
Until the decision is reached,
the weekly paper will "continue
to publish letters to the editor."
Not To Print Editorial
However, an editorial favoring
the abolition of HUAC will not
be printed in the "Clamor," the
paper, this Friday, student gov-
ernment and newspaper staff
member Gary Scott said.
Instead, a blank space will ap-
pear on the editorial page.
Charles feels that until "the
emotion is removed from the is-
sue" students should use restraint.
When community feelings die
down, a more constructive policy
will result. For the same reason,
the dean has postponed folk sing-
er Peggy Seeger's scheduled Nov.
17 appearance at the college, Fred
Comer, vice-president of the stu-
dent government, said.

New Falloutv
May Avoid
United States
First Trip over Earth
May Hit Canadians
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The radioac-
tive cloud 6hurned up by Russia's
monster nuclear bomb may pass
to the north of the United States,
except for Alaska, on its first trip
around the globe-if the wind pat-
terns don't change.
That was the cautious predic-
tion from the Weather Bureau
yesterday. .
If the present wind patterns
continue, the experts expect the
cloud to curve eastward today
and. reach -Russia's Kamchatka
Peninsula tonight. Then on Thurs-
day, it should travel over the
Aleutian Islands and possibly
reach the western edge of Alaska.
Heads East
The bureau's fallout monitors at
Aix stations will be busy as the
cloud moves across Alaska and
then heads over Canada on Fri-
On its next trip around the
earth, the weather experts haz-
arded a rough guess that the
cloud might come over areas far-
ther south. By that time, it should
be less radioactive.
The extent and immediacy of
fallout from the superbomb would
depend on the altitude at which it
was exploded, a spokesman for
the British Atomic Energy Au-
thority said yesterday*
Height Problem
"If the radioactive particles
passed into the stratosphere then
fallout might not reach the earth
before next spring," the spokes-
man said.
"If exploded in the 'weather
zone,' fallout could be expected
very soon. Extent of the fallout
would be greater if the fireball
actually touched the earth be-
cause then dirt would be sucked
up giving the fallout heavier ma-
terial to cling to."
Previous bombs' fallout gave
Gastonia, N.C., 35.8 micromicro-
curies per cubic meter of air for

in the atmosphere measured in

Health service said. This level was

megaton bomb tested several days

WASHINGTON-The Army indicated yesterday that no action
would be taken against Gen. James A. Van Fleet for his recently

for his actions during the Cuban invasion.
2) Berlin and Laos are lost to the West.

Consultant Now
Van Fleet, a retired officer, was
recently brought back into service
as a consultant by President John
F. Kennedy. Pentagon spokesmen
said that his comments were not
made while he was officially act-
ing as a Defense Department em-

subject to discipline for them in
spite of recent department direc-
tives on officers' comments on in-
ternational matters.
Stevenson last night called Van
Fleet's assertion that he was re-

Cuban invasion "totally false."
He demanded that Van Fleet
correct his statement after check-
