Group Plans
To Consider
Poll Results
Acting Associate City Editor
Sorority presidents will hear the
results of an all-house straw vote
on the concept of fall rush at to-
day's Panhellenic Association Pres-
idents' Council.
The poll was taken yesterday
and the day before in an attempt
to assess attitudes towards 1)
holding formal fall rush in Sep-
tember; 2) having fall rush some-
time in the future, but not next
year and 3) allowing upperclass-
men to rush in the fall and all
University women in the spring.
The survey also asked for alter-
native suggestions.
The vote will be tabulated in
terms of the number of houses
supporting or rejecting the con-
cept and the total number of wo-
men backing the proposal Panhel
President Patricia Elkins, '64, re-
Vote Not Binding
The vote will not be binding.
"The poll was for the benefit of
Panhel's executive committee and
rush committee, who will make
any decision about instituting fall
rush," Mrs. Elizabeth Leslie, Of-
fice of Student Affairs advisor for
sororities, said.
If a bare majority of the houses
approves the concept of fall rush,
Mrs. Leslie believes that Panhel
will decide to study the idea for
a year before taking any definitive
However, "If the results are
pretty overwhelmingly in favor of
the approach and if there is a lot
of enthusiasm for it," the execu-
tive council will submit a recom-
mendation favoring fall rush to,
Student Government Council this
spring, she predicted.
Require SGC Approval
SGC, by virtue of its calendar-
ing powers, would have to approve
fall rush dates before the plan
could take effect.
SGC President Thomas Brown,
'3BAd, said that "I don't tl ink
Council would have time to con-
sider fall rush for freshmen any
more this year."
He indicated that SGC could
easily take the time to debate,
fall rush for upperclassmen-a less
controversial issue.
Consult Assembly
If fall rush were to materialize
into a concrete proposal, Assembly
Association would be consulted on
the merits of the plan and its
evaluations would be given serious
consideration, Mrs. Leslie com-
As advisor to Panhel she said
that her approval of fall rush
would be necessary; however, she;
indicated that she would support1
the decision of the students. ,
Mrs. Leslie noted that her role
would be that of critic of both the
old and the newly proposed rush-1
ing procedures.
Consideration of fall rush isE
part of a total re-evaluation ofI

changes will be discussed today byl

INDICT STUDENTS-Three Indiana University students, James Bingham (left), Thomas Mc

subversive act for their activities in the Young Socialist Alliance on the Bloomington campus.

Faculty Votes
To Establish
NeW Deanships
The faculty of the education
school has voted to permit its dean
and executive committee to create
two new assistant or associate
The new titles were recommend-
ed in the report of the education
school's five-year evaluation com-
mittee, headed by Prof. Lester W.
Dean Willard C. Olson of the
education school said that al-
though the permissive legislation
will be effective on July 1, the
new deanships will not definitely
be recommended and that he is
not at present considering anyone
for the positions.
Approval Needed
The additional administrative
titles will be given to the chair-
men of the Undergraduate and
Graduate Committees. Recom-
mendations for the. new titles will
have to be approved by the
In addition to Olson, the educa-
tion school currently has an
assistant dean,,Charles F. Lehman.
The same by-law amendment
also changes the appointment of
the committee chairmen from a
five-year to a one-year basis.
Core Recommendations
Either at the meeting next
Tuesday or at the June session,
the faculty will discuss recom-
mendations of the core of courses
which should be asked of all stu-
dents in. education, irrespective of
their fields, Olson said.
At their meeting next week, the
faculty will review the nature of
a new research committee pro-
posed in the analysis.
They will also consider the for-
mation of an administrative
cabinet to function in addition to
the executive committee, which
would allow the committee to de-
vote more time to broad policy
A recommendation to establish
a. single instructional material ad-
visory committee to coordinate
the functions of several current
committees concerned with such
areas as audio-visual materials and
libraries will also be reviewed at
the May meeting.
The fiveary evaluan was:

for petitions is tomorrow. Whether
Democrats can raise money after
tomorrow and recount extra pre-
cincts is a legally moot point.
However, Downs said, those pre-
cincts picked for recount will be
carefully selected to maximize
marginal miscounts and thus get
a possible upset in the constitution
vote results.
The constitution, endorsed by
Gov. George Romney, was approv-
ed by Michigan voters in the April
elections by 7,829 ballots.
When asked about a possible
recount of regental elections,
which saw an early morning upset
win of William Cudlip over Don-
ald Thurber, a Democrat, Downs
replied that this will be impossible
with the funds available. Downs
mentioned that Thurber's votes
came in a "parallel pattern con-
sistent with Eugene Power,' a.
Democrat who won reelection as
a regent of the University.
The constitution's votes did not
follow such a consistent pattern
and here the Democrats hope to
achieve the upset.
Queried about Republican state-
ments describing the recount as a
publicity stunt, Downs answered
that "we are in this to win."

A Monroe County Grand Jury
indicted three University of In-
diana students yesterday on charg-
es of subversion.
Ralph Levitt, president of the
Young Socialist Alliance on the
Bloomington campus; James Bing-
ham, secretary and former presi-
dent, and Thomas Morgan, also a
member of YSA, were indicted on
charges of advocating violent over-
throw of the United States gov-
Levitt did not testify yesterday,
but according to Indiana Dean
of Students Robert Shaffer, "We
have no reason to believe that his
absence of the last few days is
related to the case." Bingham,
however, did testify.
Forceful Doctrine
The charges came as a result of
a March 25 campus meeting spon-
sored by the YSA, at which Leroy
McRea, former candidate for New
York attorney general, advocated
"the doctrine that the government
of the United States or of the
state of Indiana should be over-
thrown by force, violence, or any
unlawful means."
McRea told the meeting "We
want political power. Those who
have power have denied us our
rights. We will achieve that nec-
essary power one way or another."
He added, "I say we will be ready
to use either non-violence or vio-
lence to achieve that aim."
This -will be -the first test for a
1951 anti - Communist Indiana

statute, which according to Shaf-
fer "is similar to the Pennsylvania
law that was declared unconstitu-
tional in 1955."

Ophthalmologists Experiment with Laser

Special To The Daily
NEW YORK - A white rabbit
has its head\ tightly bound to a
stand with a weird looking object
aimed at its left eye.
A man in a white frock pushes
a button and for a fraction of a
second an intense flash of light
leaves the apparatus and enters
the rabbit's eye. Oddly enough,
the rabbit shows no signs of pain.
This scene has taken place many
times in the past in one of the
laboratories situated somewhere
in the maze of buildings and cor-
ridors that make up the New York
University Medical Center com-
plex on First Ave.
Four ophthalmologists-doctors
who study the structure, function
and diseases of the eye-have been
shooting light into rabbits' eyes:
for the past few years with a laser.
They are developing a technique
to "spot weld" parts of retinas
