Seventy-One Years of Editorial Freedom


Windy tonight,

Moch Views Motion
On Women in Quads
Inter-Quadrangle Council last night moved to include freshmen
women in its recommendation to allow women students in men's
quadrangle rooms.
IQC President Thomas Moch, '62E, predicted a "not too bright"
prospect for any revision of rules regarding women guests.
Lying behind the inclusion of freshmen women, Moch cited the
"unenforceable nature" of a ruling which would exclude them, since 55
per cent of the quadrangle residents are freshmen.
Moch noted that the flurry of letters to the editor appearing in
many Michigan newspapers and pressure from alumni might serve as
reasons for the probable rejection of any proposal allowing women
students in men's residence hall rooms.
Original Proposal
The original proposal, passed by IQC at its Nov. 2 meeting, calls
for allowing non-freshmen women visitors in the quadrangle rooms
from noon until one-half hour. before women's closing.I
It provides that each house may decide by a two-thirds vote what
visiting privileges it wishes to extend within the general limitations of:
the IQC motion.
"The groups most violently opposed have spoken loudest while th
people in favor have not been saying anything," Moch commented.
Assistant Dean of Men in charge of Residence Halls John Hale
refused to give his personal opinion of the motion or an estimate of
its chances of passing the Board of Governors.
Three Weeks Ago
Three weeks ago, when the motion was originally proposed, Hale
had said that he thought it was "basically good."
The Board of Governors will consider the recommendation, as
amended last night, at its meeting Monday.]
IQC also voted to delete the words "open-open" from the motion
in order to clarify that "it is not the intent of the resolution that
women should be permitted in the men's rooms only on an open door
basis. Consideration of the problems of noise and lack of personal
privacy have led to the belief that an open door policy is unworkablet
and undesirable" he said.
Letters Writtenc
Letters to the editor in the Ann Arbor News have attacked theE
proposal as being conductive to the lowering of moral standards.r
One writer noted that women in men's rooms would make students
more amenable to Communism by breaking down their "moral fiber."
Thus far, Huber, Kelsey, Green, Scott, Strauss, Wenley, Adams,9
Frederick, Gomberg, Allen-Rumsey, Taylor and Hinsdale Houses havec
held referendums which approved the proposal.a
"The Board of Governors could never consider this proposal on itst
merits after all this public pressure," Moch noted.C
"With so much pressure it would be difficult for them to pass itf
without hurting the name of the University."1

Panhellenic Studies
Senior Apartments
The special Panhelenic Study Committee made its report to
the President's Council on the effects of the possibility of affiliated
senior women being allowed to live in apartments, yesterday.
The Committee enumerated the supposed personal advantages
for a senior woman when living in an apartment. The areas dis-
cussed included increased economy, independence, better study
opportunities, more private living arrangements, more flexible social
arrangements, and increased responsibility.
The committee thought these alleged advantages did not offer
all the possibilities they purport when analyzed more deeply. The
sorority system as a whole would

framework of his country is bas-
ed upon the struggle against co-

United States traditional Ameri-

of authority. Thus Indonesia has
turned from Western liberal de-
mocracy to a "guided democra-

Union Board1
Turns Down
Open Meetings
The Union Board of Directors
last night adopted a majority re-I
port by the Open Meeting Com-
mittee which provided for the
board meetings to remain closed.
The report, which notes the
"great importance of conveying
information . . . to the public,"
does not feel that open meetings
would be successful in this task.
The presence of a reporter, pro-
vision for invitation of concerned1
persons, and channels for com-
plaints combine to constitute "su-1
ficient" communications.-
The minority report, filled by
board member Michael Olinick,
63, not only recommended the
adoption of open meetings, but
also urged the creation of ex-
officio members, greater report
distribution, group invitations, and
policy debates by candidates for
election to the Union Board. While
the report was rejected, the sen-
ior officers pledged further con-
sideration of its recommendations.
The Union Board also approved
seven recommended house rules
changes proposed by the House

Committee. These changes were
made to "update the regulations
to deal with existing conditins."

CHALLENGE-Students and faculty discuss fall-out shelters at
a roundtable seminar last night sponsored by Challenge.

Ethcs of Fallout Shelters'
It is necessary to look at the question of the reality of a
fundamental moral and social obligation to protect the public and
insure a social framework which would survive in the event of
a nuclear war, Prof. Arnold Kaufman of the philosophy department
said last night.
Prof. Kaufman moderated a Challenge seminar on "The Ethics
of Fallout Shelters." The seminar dealt with the problems which
face the United States if the ^

nation and its citizens continue
to build shelters.
"If the United States develops
a large-scale shelter program, the
opposition will ask why we are
engaged in this activity. The people
believe that the probability of nu-
clear war- is very high."
Taking a stand opposing the
building of fallout shelters, Judith
Cook, '63, said that four major
forces must be considered when
the shelter-question arises.
"Shelters generate a false sense
of security by making people be-
lieve this is a protection - but
after a war, when they come out;
of their holes, what will happen?"
Miss Cook said.
A program of building increases
feelings of the inevitability of
war. Such a philosophy could be
used for propaganda purposes by
the Communists in non-aligned
nations, she continued.
"They still have not solved the
problem of sanitation or air in
the shelters. After two or three
weeks in a shelter, conditions
could grow very bad," Miss Cook
And, if there is an attack, how
can people reconcile their Chris-
tian ethics of selflessness when:

but is alive, asks to be let in.

makes it very difficult for the
schools to acquire sufficient

Says Urging

Asks Negotiations
On 'Danger Spots'
SEATTLE (a)--President John
F. Kennedy yesterday cautioned
extremists that encouraging war
or surrender 'does the nation a
disservice-that the United States
must be willing to negotiate Cold
War issues from a stature of
Kennedy also declared Ameri-
cans must realize they cannot
force their beliefs on the rest of
the world.
While this country "will never
negotiate freedom, it must be pre-
pared to find out whether its vi-
tal interests may be preserved
honorably in peace," Kennedy
told 11,000 intent listeners at the
University of Washington.
With its vital interests-clearly
marked in Germany and other
danger spots, Kennedy said-"we
have nothing to fear from nego-
tiations at the appropriate time
and nothing to gain by refusing
them." -
Kennedy deleted a passage of
his prepared text in which he as-
serted the United States is "de-
termined to prevent certain na-
tions from adopting neutrality
and to prevent certain others from
abandoning It.
"We find some who call them-
selves neutrals who are friends
and sympathetic to us, and others
who call themselves neutrals who
are unremittingly hostile to us."
Aides said later the President
would stand by the speech as ac-
tually delivered. They contended,
neither the original nor substi-
tuted lines signified a change in
U.S. policy, that the administra-
tion has always sought to keep
allies from turning neutral, and
neutrals from sliding into the
Communist Bloc.
Kennedy said diplomacy and
defense are not substitutes for one
another, but essential companions.
Negotiations within carefully de-
fined limits are likely to succeed.
