Service Says
Clinic Visits
Fallin Off
University, Health Service re-
ports a drop in general clinic vis-
its for the first quarter of this
school year over last year.
General outpatient clinic visits
also showed a drop in the report
issued by Health Service covering
the months of October, November
and December.
Prescriptions and laboratory
procedures, however, showed an
increase, as did upper fespiratory
infections. Pneumonia and infec-
tious mononucleosis were on the
rise also during these months this
year.
Influenza and polio shots were
given to fewer students this year
in the mass immunization pro-
gram and were then put on an in-
dividual basis.
Total clinic visits for the quar-
ter were highest in October, with
a count of 13,860. November and
December had totals of 9,788 and
7,419 respectively. The highest
daily count occurred in November
when a high of 586 patients used
the clinic.
General outpatient clinic calls
of 10,721 were recorded. Out-
patient clinic nurse visits were
listed at 2,707 by the report. The
total for the allergy clinic was
3,381 visits. Almost 11,000 pre-
scriptions were filled during this
period.

STUDENTS DISMISSED, DISCIPLINED:
Ohio University Exam Thefts Head College News

IN PERSON

ATHENS-A widespread exam-
stealing scandal just prior to the
final examination period at Ohio
University has resulted in the dis-
missal of six students.
At least 100 other students had
been singled out for various types
of disciplinary action, according
to "The Ohio University Post.",
The desire for an "easy grade"
and some quick money led a large
number of, students in colleges
throughout the University to pass
or sell stolen Fine Arts 17 exams
to classmates, according to "The
Post.",
. The dean of men's office first
heard that an exam had been
stolen when student complaints
began filtering into the office. The
clincher came when a student
was apprehended in a classroom
with crib-notes of one of the ac-
tual exams.
"We have never had anything
this serious in my administra-
tion," University President John
C. Baker said.
One of the fine arts exams was
stolen shortly before an hour
exam given Jan. 7. The other was
a 13-week test, stolen in Novem-
ber.
The grades on neither exam
will count in the course's final
grade, according to the College of
Fine Arts dean.
This action affects slightly over
12 per cent of the students at
Ohio University.

MINNEAPOLIS - Administra-
tion suppression of information
regarding a rape in a women's
~dorm led to harmful circulation
of wild rumors, the "Minnesota
Daily" has charged.
"For nearly a week, rumor ran
rampant," "The Daily" said.
"First wword had it that there
was a rape in Powell Hall, nurse's
dormitory. That turned out to be
true. Later versions were twisted
accounts. They weren't true, and
some were much more harmful
than the truth.
"There was no official word un-
til five days after the incident.
'The Daily' was repeatedly told
'there's no story.'
"When the Department of Pro-
tection and Safety released the
story to the newspapers and
broadcasting stations, it explained
that earlier publicity might have
hampered progress in the case.
"When a similar incident comes
along," the student paper con-
cluded, "we hope the campus po-
lice and the administration will
keep three things in mind:
"It can be more dangerous to

have reckless rumors circulating
than it is to have the truth pub-
lished,:
"The news media will 'sit' on a
story in order not to hamper the
case if they are told truthfully
that there has been an incident
and it is being investigated.
"The University is least hurt by
'incidents' involving students if it
admits that they have happened
and that proper action is being
taken. This last fact is an import-
ant one which is often overlooked
when 'bad publicity' may be
risked." /
NEW YORK - The American
Civil Liberties Union has strong-
ly recommended that colleges
carefully observe due process in'
all cases involving expulsion of
students, except for failure to
meet academic standards. °
The ACLU contended that stu-
dents, as well as teachers, are en-
titled to the safeguards of due
process. Its proposal is included
in revisions of the pamphlet "Aca-
demic Freedom and Civil Liber-
ties for Students," which the
Union first prepared and pub-
lished in 1956.
The revised pamphlet calls for
the "utmost procedural protection
possible" in cases involving expul-
sion of students. Where guilt is
acknowledged, it stated, a review
board rather than a single ad-
ninistrator acting without advice
should study the case and recom-
mend penalty.
Students who do not admit guilt
should be granted hearings, be
permitted to confront witnesses,
and be entitled to appeal to a re-
view body.
In cases involving expulsion or
other major disciplinary action
except for failure to meet academ-
ic standards, the pamphlet em-
phasized, students should be ad-
vised in writing of charges against
them, be present at hearings, have
counsel if they wish, and confront
and cross-examine witnesses.
The revisions, in effect, extend
to students the same kind of pro-
visions for due process which
ACLU and its Academic Freedom
Committee have recommended in
civil liberties cases generally, in-
cluding those affecting teachers.'

BETHLEHEM (UPS) - The
controversy at Lehigh University
over the banning of Socialist Nor-
man Thomas as a speaker on the
campus exploded this week as a
series of developments provoked
comment from the National Stu-

dent Association, Thomas himself,
and the school's president, facul-
ty and student council.
NSA's National Executive Com-
mittee, meeting at the University
of Minnesota unanimously ap-
proved a resolution condemning
the thwarting of Thomas at-Le-
high as a breach of academic
freedom.
Lehigh President Martin D.
Whitaker broke a two month ad-
ministration silence when he told
a faculty meeting that the Thom-
as denial was made on procedural
grounds. He did not, however, of-
fer any comment on the academic
freedom question involved, and
left a number of other questions
unanswered.
Prior to the meeting, eight pro-
fessors, all members of the exec-
utive committee of the school's
American Association of Univer-
sity Professors chapter released a
statement questioning the univer-
sity's current regulation on the
approval of guest speakers. Al-
though not specifically mention-
ing the Thomas affair, they asked
that the power of approval be
transferred from the president to.
the students and faculty.
Issuance of the faculty state-

ment forced the resignation of the
president of the AAUP chapter
who accused the eight professors
of "acting injudiciously and fail-
ing to meet the complexities of
the problem."
The Lehigh Student Council
voted late in the week to support
the faculty statement. At the
same time, reliable sources dis-
closed that the president of the
student organization which had
originally invited Thomas to the
campus plans to appeal the ad-
ministration's decision to Lehigh's
Board of Trustees at its meeting
next month.
Thomas stirred up a new con-
troversy when he wrote to the
AAUP chapter and publicly im-
plied that financial pressures from
the university's alumni were pri-
marily responsible for making him
an unwelcome visitor to the cam-
pus. He states a hesitanc'y to ap-
pear, lest he "impede the univer-
sity's fund raising activities."
Following publication of the
Thomas letter in local papers, the
ex-president of the AAUP chapter
accused the six time candidate for
President of using "McCarthy-
like tactics."
Last week in an interview with
the New York Post. Thomas ac-
cused President Whitaker of "liv-
ing in fear of his alumni," and
making only "pompous state-
ments" on the issue. He vows to
fight as a matter of principle.
After two months of charges
and counter-charges, campus ob-
servers look for a continuation of
"I'affaire Thomas." Althqugh the
academic issue has been clouded
by a number of incidental squab-
bles, Lehigh students are still
questioning the administration's
action.

In a statement issued shortly
after the trial (quoted in the
"Yale Daily News"), a university
official declared, "Disciplinary ac-
tion has already been taken in
the case of 12 of the students,
whose resignations from Yale
haverbeencaccepted, and disci-
plinary action will take place
forthwith in the case of the oth-
er eight students, now that the
court trial has been concluded."
The evening following the con-
victions, the. Deans of Yale Col-
lege, the engineering school, and
of the Freshman Year, announced
that female visitors will no long-
er be allowed in dormitory rooms
on any week day.
When contacted by the "News,"
a university official stressed the
point that "this measure is not
intended as a punitive action but
father as a protection against any
possible recurrence of the recent
incident.
Freshmen are restricted to en-
tertaining female visitors in their
rooms from noon to 8:30 p.m. on
Saturdays and days before holi-
days, and from noon to 6 p.m. on
Sundays. The Saturday hour may
be extended to 10 p.m. by permis-
sion in advance.
Upperclassmen may entertain
women in their rooms from 11
a.m. to midnight on Saturdays
and days before holidays, from
noon to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
