West Quad Council
Questions Decision
Petitions Circulated in Two Halls
Urge Leniency for Two Freshmen
By NAN MARKEL
Quadrangle groups tried in several ways yesterday to center
attention, and ask reconsideration, on Friday's suspension of Mark
Hall, '63, and Stanley Lubin, '63, for participation in a food riot-
panty raid.
West Quadrangle Council unanimously voted last night to "go on
record as asking a just reconsideration of the Joint Judiciary Council
decision to suspend two East Quadrangle students from the Univer-
sity, in view of the apparent haste and unusual nature of the
decision."
The Council made clear that, by endorsing the statement, West
Quad was not favoring panty raids, or saying the students should not
--be suspended, but just asking re-
consideration.

RICHARD M. NIXON
.. . news of victory

Nixon Leads
In Indiana
Primary
By The Associated Press
Vice President Richard M. Nix-
on overcame an early deficit to
take a widening lead last night
over Sen. John F. Kennedy (D-
Mass), in an Indiana primary test
of their comparative voter appeal
as Presidential possibilities.
With 2,538 of 4,261 precincts re-
porting, Nixon had 257,249 votes
in the Republican presidential
preference ballot. Kennedy had
212,174.
Meanwhile, Sen. Hubert H.
Humphrey (D-Minn), dealt a de-
cisive defeat to Sen. Wayne Morse
(D-Ore), in their head-to-head
presidential popularity contest in
the District of Columbia.
The two men ran separately,
but their vote totals were watched
for a possible clue to their com-
parative pulling power.
Nixon had only token opposition
from a Negro lawyer, Frank R.
Beckwith of Indianapolis who
polled only 13,073 votes in 2,583
precincts.
Kennedy, too, had nominal op-
position but his two rivals-Lar
Daly of Chicago and John H. Lat-
ham, a retired pipefitter from
Rockville, Ind., gathered 48,000
votes between them, also in 2,583
precincts.
Political observers were not
sure how to interpret this vote for
Daly, an avowed "America First"
candidate, and Latham.
Kennedy campaigned in Indi-
ana and predicted last Friday he
would outpoll Nixon there, despite
the state traditional Republican-
ism. Nixon did no personal cam-
paigning there, but his supporters
went all-out for him in a news-
paper-radio-TV campaign to get
out a Nixon vote.

FINAL VOTE:.
TO Discuss
Bias Ruling
At Council
By PHILIPSHERMAN
Student Government Council
will take the final vote today on
the motion on non-discrimination
in student organizations.
Amendments to the motion will
also be considered.
The Council will also consider a
proposal to abolish J-Hop, the
dance's central committee chair-
man and hear a motion by Roger
Seasonwein, '61, and Al Haber, 6
to sponsor a non-violent demon-
stration commemorating the an-
niversary of the Supreme Court
school Integration decision.
The general regulation of the
non-discrimination motion reads:
"All student organizations shall
select membership and afford op-
portunities to members on the
basis of personal merit and not
race, color, religion, creed, national
origin or ancestry."
Committee Assists
The Council would act on all
violations, assisted by a Committee
on Membership in Student Or-
ganizations which would carry out
investigations of alleged viola-
tions and make recommendations.
First amendments to the motion
to be considered concerns composi-
tion of the committee the motion
would set up to assist the Council
in carrying out its clauses. Under
the proposal, four of the commit-
tee's seven members would be stu-
dents, with the other three to
come from the faculty and ad-
ministration.
The present composition clause
specifies three students, two fac-
ulty members and two administra-
tors.
Committee Members
Two other amendments concern
appointment of committee mem-
bers. One would specify appoint-
ment of two student members each
May. Present proposed terms of
office are two years.
The second would limit member-
ship to one year, on a renewable
basis. It adds that two students
and two other committee members
be named every May, and two stu-
dents and one other member every
December.
The Council is responsible for
appointing all members to the
committee, on advice of nomi-
nating groups.
Adds to Powers
A fourth amendment would add
to the committee's powers. In
dealing with secret organizations
allegedly in violation of the regu-
lation, the committee can request
relevant information that would
otherwise remain private, the
amendment specifies.
Among the committee's present
proposed powers: formulating pol-
icies to further the regulation and
making recommendations to the
Council on them; hearing cases
involving violation and recom-
mending disciplinary action to the
Council; and developing educa-
tional programs.
The committee, as proposed,
must report to the Council at least
once every semester.
The committee must make pub-
lic its standard operating pro-
cedures by next Oct. 15. The pro-
cedures are subject to Council
approval.

To Curb Political Rivalry

CIVIL RIGHTS:
Challenge' Committee
Hears New Program
By LINDA REISTMAN
The "Challenge" steering committee worked on the group's pro-
gram for next semester and elected officers at its meeting yesterday.
Roger Seasonwein, '61, head of the committee working on the
program-American Civil Rights and Liberties-presented the list of
subjects. They included:
1) Education-Problems within the individual institutions and the
freedom of the institution in the United States will be taken up. The
group extended this topic to include high schools as well as college
institutions.
2) Government-Included in this subject would be censorship, visa
rulings, immigration and alien and sedition laws, Congressional com-

mittees, and problems of security
in governmental positions, the
Justice department and executive
power.
Public Morality
3) Public Morality-Discussions
would center around the prob-
lems of teaching religion in the
public schools, religion and poli-
tics, "Blue Laws," and movie and
book censorship.
4) Foreign perception of Ameri-
can Civil Rights and Liberties -I
The group plans to limit this sub-
ject to a discussion of national
civil rights problems only, pos-
sibly including speeches from for-
eign students' views on the United
States in this area.
5) Discrimination -- Compari-
sons and contrasts will be made,
between attitudes of a Northern
and Southern city in the areas of
racial and religious discrimina-
tion.
Labor and Business
6) Big Labor and Big Business--
"Challenge" will deal with the is-
sues posed by labor unions, small
business and labor - management
relations with the aid of prominent
guest speakers representing these
positions.
The group selected Hugh Wite-
meyer, '61, as its spokesman. Har-
vey Armstrong, '62, was elected
treasurer.

Mediocrity
A Possibi ly
--Lndemer
"Too frequently we stress equal-
ity so greatly that perhaps we
come to believe in the equality of
mediocrity," state Republican
chairman Lawrence B. Lindemeer
observed last night.
Speaking at the annual Fra-
ternity-Sorority Presidents' Ban-
quet at the Washtenaw Country
Club, Lindemer stressed organiza-
tional work depends on voluntary
contributions of individuals. People
often reflect a lack of purpose, or
sense of being unwanted, when
they say "why bother?"
Need Responsibility
Responsibiilty belongs to every-
one, to do the best he can, but we
develop the tendency to let some-
one else do it for us. This is true
in government, which is daily
becoming more a part of our lives.
We should do the work ourselves,
he said.
"There is a misconception that
politics is underhanded," he
added. "On both sides of the poli-
tical fence the vast majority of
citizens involved in politics are
of the highest quality, serving
everyone.,"
Awards Presented
The dinner was highlighted by
the presentation of outstanding
Member awards to Jane Thomp-
son, '61, Alpha Phi, and William
Ramson, '60, Phi Gamma Delta.
The awards are based upon schol-
arship and campus and fraternity
or sorority leadership.
Toastmaster for the evening

dent of Hectorians, fraternity

pf the Office of Religious Affairs,

tainment was provided by The

DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
S... responsibilities of Congress
Peek, Lamb
View Move
By STUART DOW
"President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er's actions are typical of any elec-
tion year," Prof. George A. Peek
of the political science department
said last night.
"Each party will accuse the
other of practicing partisanship
and say they are practicing states-
menship. Both parties are equally
guilty of this. It is the way the
game is played.'
"This is neither the first nor
the last time politicians will call
for an adjournment of politics,"
Karl A. Lamb also of the political
science department added, "but
this call in itself is a political
gesture.
"It would be ideal, if both parties
could work in concert for the good
of the country. However it is fu-
tile to expect this to ever happen.
Both parties are vying for position
in the forthcoming election.
"This partisanship is normal,
and it is necessary if the people
are to choose between the two
parties in November."
Prof. Peek feels nothing will
come of the President's request for
more liberal immigration laws and
that Congress will go beyond his
request for Federal aid for school
construction. "The Democrats
counter will be that aid should go
beyond just construction of
schools," he said.
"As for foreign aid, the House
will go along with the President's
basic recommendations, but they
will make some cuts."
Prof. Peek criticized Eisenhower
for not mentioning public housing
for urban areas. "Slum clearance
in urban areas is a distressing
problem and something should be
done about it."
In the area of health aid for the
aged, Prof. Peek feels the Presi-
dent is sure to veto any legisla-
tion similar to the Forand Bill,
which uses a taxation method of
collecting funds.

Says Service
To Country
Comes First
Commends Passage
Of Civil Rights Bill
As Accomplishment
WASHINGTON ()--President
Dwight D. Eisenhower appealed to
the Democratic - controlled Con-
gress yesterday to pass up poli-
ticking and get down to legislating
for all America in these closing
months of the election year ses-
sion.
"Too great a preoccupation with
events of an election year could
seriously impede constructive ef-
fort," he said in a special message.
...We should jointly reslve
that the shortness of time and
political rivalries will not be al-
lowed to prevent us from serving
the American people effectively."
Eisenhower credited Congress
with one major accomplishment
in four months of work so far-.
passage of a new civil rights bill.
But even here, the President
chided Congress for rejecting cer-
tain of his recommendations.
The President plugged hard-
as he did in a nationally broad-
cast speech last night-for his $4
billion foreign, aid program which
he called imperative to the na-
tion's security.
He asked anew for a farm bill
to cope with the problem of
mounting crop surpluses, particu-
larly wheat.
While Eisenhower listed a whole
group of proposals ranging from
more federal judges to a "moder-
ate" increase in the one dollar an
hour minimum wage, the only
really new one was in the field of
health care for the elderly.
The President said Secretary of
Welfare Arthur S. Fleming today
will unfold "a new program which
will enable older people truly in
need of help to meet the calamity
of catastrophic illness."
Without going into detail, he
indicated this politically signify-
cant plan wll be built around pri-
vate health insurance, with fed-
eral and state sharing of the costs.
Foes Berate
Ike's Message
As 'Politics'
WASHINGTON M)- Congres-
sional Democrats cried "politics"
yesterday at President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's special message lec-
turing them to put aside partisan-
ship and enact his legislative pro-
gram.
House Speaker Sam. Rayburn
(D-Tex) sniffed, "This speech-it's
called a message, but I call it a
speech-seems to be the Republi-
can platform."
Senate Democratic Leader Lyn-
don B. Johnson of Texas said he
agreed with Eisenhower's state-
ment "that none of us can afford
to 'electioneer at the expense' of
matters vital to the naton's econ-
omy and security."
"I am somewhat surprised that
the point should even be raised in
the middle of a session that is
proceeding in good order to trans-
act the public business," Johnson
said.
As was to be expected, Republi-
cans had general applause for the
Presidential document. Senate
GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen
of Illinois called it "factual" and

"an earnest appeal for a coopera-
tive effort."
Rayburn and Johnson gave their

nave no adts, nave ta en ueij
erate and spectacular" advantage
of televisions restraint in handling
the theme of sex in recent months,
Potter declared.
"The social problems which re-
late to advertising are by no
means confined to, or derived
from advertising alone. They are
the problems of mass communi-
cation in a mass society which
was created by democracy and
economic abundance rather than
by advertising... ."
The answer to the explorative
advertiser is not to condemn the
exploration specifically. Advertis-
ing is not a particular way of
addressing the public. It is a con-
text within which ways of addres-
sing the public are developed."

JOURNAL CLUB PANEL:
Editors Stress Prevalence of Pessimism
By JUDITH OPPENHEIM
'"The new noise in Ann Arbor writing is something like a sob,"
Bernard Waldrop of the English department said, summing up a
Journal Club panel discussion he moderated last night.
Guest panelists Ann Doninger, '61, assistant editor ,of "Genera-
tion," the campus literary magazine, Robert Davis, '61, editor of
"Arbor," and Lalit Udani, Grad., editor of Abhishek, a forthcoming
literary publication sponsored by the Inter-Cooperative Council, dis-
cussed trends in the work of young writers, across .the country and
- particularly in Ann Arbor,
Broken Homes, Runaways
The main point the panel members stressed was the prevalence
of pessimism in today's writing. Speaking of the contributions to
"Abhishek," (the Sanskrit word for offering), Udani commented,
"The authors try to find their subjects under sofa cushions or in
black back alleys. Most of them are not only sad, but morbid."
He said the most popular subjects in the short stories he has
received are broken homes and runaway husbands. Udani feels that
