Indict T
BILOXI, Miss. (P)-The federal
grand jury investigating the mur-
der of three civil rights workers
near Philadelphia, Miss., returned
two indictments yesterday.
The indictments insure there
will be a trial in the near future.

of House Democrats served notice
yesterday it will try to strip par-
ty privileges from any Democrat-
ic members who oppose President
Lyndon B. Johnson's election.
Ten members, acting through
Rep. John A. Blatnik (D-Minn),
said they will contest the seat-
ing as a Democrat next January
of anyone who "supported, cam-
paigned for or* otherwise advo-
cated" the election of any presi-
dential candidate except Johnson.
The action would appear to be
aimed principally at Mississippi
and Alabama members-all Dem-
ocrats. In Mississippi, top state
Democratic leaders are openly
supporting Repblican Sen. Bar-
ry Goldwater (R-Ariz), while in
Alabama a slate of unpledged elec-
tors represents the only alterna-.
tive to the slate pledged to the
Republican nominee.
Blatnik's group intends to check
press. clippings and monitor ra-
dio speeches in the districts of'
suspected defectors to gather evi-
dence to lay before the Demo
cratic caucus next January when
it votes on committee assignments.
Blatnik, said in a House speech
that Democrats have every right,
as individuals, to support and
work for any presidential candi-
date they favor.
"We do not feel, however," he
added, "that such members should
be welcomed back into the Demo-
cratic fold and be entitled to com-
mittee assignments and other priv-
ileges on an equal basis with those
members who supported our na-
tional candidates "and platform."

Stockwell Women Adoptg
Voluntary Plan Sign-out}
Stockwell Hall resolved its recent controversy over sign-outs last
night by voting 271-95 to adopt a voluntary system.
The choice between voluntary or mandatory sign-outs was givenf
to the individual houses late last spring. At that time, the houseso
were given a deadline by which to reach their decisions.
The Stockwell House Council soon after that voted to retain
the mandatory system. Within several days, a petition, in accordance
with the initiative clause of Stockwell's constitution, was presented }'=n

Planners for the college face
several alternatives:
1) If the residence units alone
open in 1966, the facilities would
have to be shared and the class
situation would be difficult.
Thuma said the committee is
dissatisfied with this prospect "be-
cause it would provide a mixture
of all sorts of students, which
could militate somewhat against
the operation of the college."
If students did not travel to the
Central Campus for classes, they
would have to take them in un-
used living units on the residence
college campus.
2) If, however, the construction'
of the residential units can be
delayed until 1967, the college
might open with itz full array of
clustered buildings. However, a
substantial portion of non-resi-
dential college students would still
reside and perhaps attend classes
They would be phased out as
the residential student body swell-
ed to four class levels.

3) The college could be con-
structed in piece-meal fashion, so
that the buildings would grow
with the expanding population. Al-
though the academic and resi-
dence units will form a cluster,
their small size permits this flex-
ibility, Thuma said.
But if this would bar outsiders,
it poses new problems. "It is very
difficult educating students amidst
the distradtions of new construc-
tion," he said. '
Stil Tentative
Both Thuma and a spokesman
from the business office empha-
sized that building plans are high-
ly tentative. The spokesman said
the completion of' the residence
units by a 1966 fall opening, for
instance, would be difficult.
There have been reports that'
the administrative officers are
pressuring the faculty group to,
finish planning the housing to in-
sure completion by this date.
The business spokesman denied
the speculation. "If it's possible to
finish by 1966 then let's do it. It
is not an impediment to the col-
lege if the group develops a pro-
gramland then we build that pro-
gram. But we will take time to

to Uni
construct the residence units t
suit the college's purpose."
Strong Upperclassmen

over sharing facilities is an ex
tension of their reported interes
