Place Delegates
On Advice Group
SGC Defeats Ross-Olinick Motion,
Adopts New Procedure for Election
Student Government Council passed a motion last night to place
seven delegates on the Advisory Committee for the Office of Student
Affairs, although with some reservations about advisory groups.
Council also adopted a plan to hold SGC elections on one day
only, Nov. 14. The revised rules for the up-coming election were ac-
cepted by the body.
The motion on the advisory board was a composite proposal tak-
ing points from the former Ross-Olinick motion, the original proposal
from the executive committee and


U' ositionon Federal Aid

Predicting that federal grants
for classroom construction will" be
approved by Congress within the
near future, University President
Harlan Hatcher yesterday outlined
the University's position on feder-
al aid to higher education.
He said the University would
accept funds that would be made
available on a one-for-one match-
ing basis in a bill now before Con-
gress, but declared that no such
aid would be accepted for faculty

Another Problem
President Hatcher cited another
difficulty that could arise in the
federal aid program, if it went
too far.
"The United States is too big
for a Washington agency to
handle its educational system -
financially, administratively or in
any other way," he said.
"Education ought to remain the
responsibility of the local com-
munities and the states, especially
higher education," he added.

. church censorship

Arnold Backs
By Catholics
"Opposition to censorship us-
ually comes from a refusal to ac-
cept one or more of the presup-
positions under which the Catholic
C h u r c h operates," The Rev.
Claude Arnold said yesterday in
a discussion at the Newman Club.
But the most valid argument
against censorship, and the one
which is of most concern to Cath-
olics, is that "to censor is in some
way to stifle the search for truth,"
Y Fr. Arnold added.
He quoted Jacques Maritain's
book, "The Responsibility of the
Artist": "From the point of view
of art, the artist is responsible on-
ly to his art. From the point of
view of morality the artist is re-
sponsible, to the good of human
life. . .
Moral Danger
Fr. Arnold acknowledged that
often. time takes care of "bad"
books. But "it doesn't matter if a
book isn't around, in 50 years if
now in the judgment of prudent
men, it presents a moral danger
to those who read it."
Ordinarily, to read a book that
is forbidden by the church, one
must have a good reason and be
given permission by an approp-
riate church authority (usually a
bishop), he noted.
But sometimes "one's own pru-
dent judgment is enough," as
when a book is assigned by an
Divine Commission
Fr. Arnold discussed several
presuppositions of the Catholic
church, including "that the truth
can be known," and "that the
Church is commissioned by God
to teach the truth."
He noted that arguments such
as "no one can say what the truth
is" and "the church is a purely
human organization, a sociological
phenomenon" do not impress
Although the argument that
"censorship itself stifles t h e
truth" is more valid than the
others, it also upsets the Catholic
assumption that it's the function
of the church to teach the ideal
and point the direction toward it.
Fr. Arnold explained that the
various kinds of censorship include
books, eccelesiastical art a n d
music, and movies.
There are several classes of
books which are forbidden by the
church, Fr. Arnold noted.
These include religious books
which appear without the proper
censorship of the church, books.
that are against faith or attack
religion or morality, and books
whcih are considered obscene.

reached on "what the purpose of
a college paper should be."
'Unfair Reporting'
Commenting last night, Dean
Fi bel said that he ordered the
suspension not because of any
particular article, but because "the
general quality of articles was
sometimes unfair.
"A lack of straight news report-
ing in newsarticles and poor
journalism made me think this
move was necessary," he added.
"But the new policy (he released
last night) is a strong step in the
right direction."
According to Christine Decker,

The first hints of reasons be-

OXFORD, Miss. - Nearly 4000 armed troops were withdrawn
from the University of Mississippi yesterday as James H. Meredith
went through a third day as the fir'st forcibly integrated Negro
student in the school's 114-year history.

orders on the coming weekend. Some 8,000 heavily armed soldiers re-
