EVANSTON - Inter-Fraternity
Council Judicial Board at Norta-
western University stated that
three fraternities on the campus
still have discriminatory clauses .n
their national constitutions.-
The three are Sigma Chi, Sigma
Nu, and Alpha Tau Omega. A
fourth fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha,
announced last night that its dis-
criminatory clauses had been re-
moved at a national convention
last summer.
All three of the chapters with
clauses were judged to have made
a "significant effort" toward re-
moval of the clauses during the
past year.
Northwestern Sigma Chi Presi-
dent Bill Moody said prospets
for removal of the clause at the
1961 Sigma Chi convention were
very encouraging.
Sigma Nu and Alpha Tau
Omega recently have adopted
"floating clauses" under whic~h
their national councils may waive
membership qualification claus ,s
for a local chapter which fares
expulsion from a uniiersity cam-
IFC President Art Tauder wern-
ed both fraternities that the
"floating clauses" mnay not satisfy
I-r requirements for progress to-
ward removal of national dis-
criminatory clauses when the
judicial board meets on clauses
again next winter :quafter.

holders applying for State Univer-
sity of Iowa approved under.-
graduate housing status will be
required to sign written agree-
ments forbidding racial or re-
ligious discrimination, Marion L
Huit, dean of students announced.
Huit outlined the university's
policy on housing discrimination,
to begin Sept. 1, 1961, at a dis-
cussion sponsored by the Iowa

was moderated by Pi.of. Frank
Kennedy, of the Iowa law school.
He said that owners of presently
approved housing will not have
to sign the agreement, but "it will
be 'assuned that they will comply
with the University3' policy."

CHICAGO - Radio station
WUCB at the University of Chi-
cago solicited contributions of
books and money for the South
African student fund (SASF) dur-
ing its 27 hour ninth annual
WUCB's contribution to SASF
will help 13 African students get
college educations. After meeting
rigorous academic standards, these
students were accepted from more
than 100 applicants to participate
in the University of London's ex-
ternal studies program.
The students are studying in
Johannesburg in what resembles
an underground school. The gov-
ernment has so far ignored, rather!

SGCMotion onUAC'
The full text of the Student Government Council motion
concerning the House Un-American Activities Committee movie
"Operation Abolition" is as follows:
MOVE: Student Government Council upholds the respon-
sibility of groups and organizations within the academic com-
munity to avoid' misrepresentation, half-truths, and untruths,
and upholds the freedom of the academic community against
intimidation and false accusations by governments or other
DECLARATION: SGC holds that the film "Operation
Abolition" unfairly accuses students of subversive activity.
The students taking part in the San Francisco demonstra-
tions, insofar as they participated in undue breaches of order,
were not acting in accord with the precepts of democratic non-
SGC endorses the right of individuals to peacefully and
legally protest the activities and the existence of HUAC and
SGC expresses concern over possible inhibition of such' ac-
SGC cannot condone the actions of these students. Nor,
however, can it condone the action of the Committee which
in its distribution of a distorted film has also failed to act
according to thes traditions of honest analysis and due process
which are necessary to the best functioning of a free society.
In accord with the statement of the United States National
Student Association on academic freedon, SGC urges all
students to view the movie "Operation Abolition," listen to the
tapes of the May 15 demonstration, listen to the record "Sounds
of Protest," and read as much other material pertaining, to
the San Francisco demonstrations as possible.
In pursuance of this recommendation, SGC urges all stu-
dents in their viewing of the movie to attempt -to determine
the truth and/or falsity of the reporting of the San Francisco
demonstrations by all of the previously mentioned data.
SGC further requests the television stations from whom
the films were taken to make available their complete films
of the demonstration.
MANDATE: The Student Government Council mandates
its president to distribute this resolution to HUAC and agencies
and organizations within the state of Michigan distributing or
showing the film "Operation Abolition."

than helped the students' pro-
gram, the Chicago group said.
WUCB hopes its contribution
reaches the students before the
government takes action against
their "university."
