favor of the goals of the demon-
stration as well as the demonstra-
tion itself.
The Michigan region supported
the measure by a vote of 19-4 with
one abstention.
Varied Seminars
The first days of the congress,
which began Aug. 14, were occu-
pied with seminars on topics rang-
ing from civil rights and freedom
of expression to discussions-of in-
ternational issues.
Thursday, the delegates began
meeting in committees to write

legislation which will be consid-
ered by the congress as a whole
this week. The final portion of the
congress, beginning Saturday, con-
sists of these plenary sessions.
There were only two short plen-
ary sessions prior to Saturday, one
concerning congress rules and one
dealing with the march on Wash-
ington. The congress ends Thurs-
day with election of officers.
Meredith Address
The congress also heard last
Tuesday an address by James A.
Meredith, first Negro to enter the
University of Mississippi. Mere-

INSURANCE ad appearing on
Page ,1 of the activities section.
The ad should read-
12 MONTHS for 22

dith discussed his experiences in
Mississippi and an educational
fund which he is setting up to
aid underprivileged students.
Praising the work of USNSA, he
pointed out that "no one segment
of society has the sole responsi-
bility of making sure society is
what it should be. Yet, students in
colleges and universities have a
major responsibility to discover
the ills of their society."
Meredith's fund will be aimed
at aiding the underprivileged with
scholarships, loans and counsel-
ling. However, it will carry the
specific limitation that it cannot
be used to support litigation of
any sort.
Help Underprivileged
The fund will specifically try to
help those "who are so underprivi-
leged they cannot compete in the
society." Meredith noted that many
Negroes who have entered former-
ly white colleges in the South have
been so poor that they had "to
pass the hat" every time a tuition
payment was due.
Discussing his year at Mississip-
pi, Meredith observed that many
white segregationists would not
even recognze his existence as a
human being.
He received few unfavorable or
threatening letters from segrega-
tionists "because any Southerner
literate. enough to write a letter
would not acknowledge my exist-
ence by doing so."
Those students who were friend-

ly and courteous to him were "only
doing what I would expect of de-
cent human beings" and as such
did not deserve any special praise.
Addressing a visiting group of
African students earlier in the day,
he had termed the racial situation
in Mississippi "perhaps as bad as
South Africa, maybe worse."
Thomas Hoadley, Monroe Coun-
ty prosecutor who had brought
charges against three Indiana Uni-
versity Young Socialist Alliance
members several months ago, told,
a seminar last Tuesday that his
objective was to have the YSA's
recognition withdrawn at Indiana.
Law Violation
Hoadley brought charges against
the students under a 1951 Indiana
anti-Communist law because he
thought recognizing the group was
a violation of Indiana University
against giving official status to
"any totalitarian, fascist, commu-
nistic or subversive organization."
Indiana University had refused
to take action against the group
because it was not on the attorney
general's list of subversive organi-
zations. However, Hoadley termed
the list "defunct" since it has not
been. revised isnce 1957.
Although Hoadley said he did
not know whether the organization
presented a clear threat to the
government o f Indiana, t h'
group's avowed purpose was to
spread "revolutionary s o c i a 1 i s t
ideas on campus."

Joint Judiciary Council's con-
stitution underwent several
changes last year.
A study made by council mem-
bers called for several revisions
on the old constitution designed
to make the judicial process more
heedful of due process laws and
to clarify the procedure by which
cases are referred to the proper
University agencies.
Substantive Changew
Several substantive changes oc-
curred in procedure:
1) All information given to
council for consideration must now
be given with a bona fide signa-

Appeal Channel
Other changes dealt with the
channels of appeal open to \the
student dissatisfied with the co n-
cil's ruling.
The University Committee ;on
Standards and Conduct was ce4tt-
ed to serve as a final appea
board for all penalties invoked Eby
judicial bodies within its ju s-
diction. It will also adjudicale
violations which are waived tofit
by the council.
This committee supercedes th~e
old Committee on Student Condik't
whose function was never clearly
delineated and consequently it
acted in many cases where no
appeal had been made to it and
where it had no specific authority.
Regents Creatk
The Regents recently approved
a request for the establishmentof;
the new engineering department
of meteorology and oceanography.
Appointment of Aksel C. Wiip-
Nielsen as professor and chairman
of the new department was also

Executive Vice-President Mar-
vin Niehuss said that the areas of
meteorology and oceanography are
closely linked because they both
deal with "fluids on the earth's
surface and in its atmosphere."
There is a very close inter-action
between the two, he added.
