tendants rolled a red carpet up
the steps to the plane and the

tion. Also included in Sugiyama's
group were Col. Toshiro Magari,
Chief of the Intelligence Plans
Branch and Lt. Col. Kazuhiko

well as serving as translator was
Col. Dallas A. Pilliod.

he spoke individually to almost
every man. One cadet was asked
why he was in Reserve Officer
Training Corps, another why he
had joined the army.
After reviewing the cadets and
speaking to the various people
who had come out to see him, he
got in a military car and was
driven to the' campus.
'U' Well Known
In response to questions, Sugi-
yama said that he had wanted to'
come to the University for a long
time because it is well known in
I Japan especially for its Far East-

looked forward to seeing the Mich-
' igan-Michigan State football game
I ever since he learned he was to
visit the University.
' The visit to the University is one
of many stops throughout the
country during the three-week
tour. Sug-iyama is in the United
. States, he said, to thank the many
people who have helped Japan and
its defense forces.-

Cornell IFC Discusses Changes in Hazing By-laws

ITHACA, N. Y. - The Interfra-
ternity Council at Cornell Univer-
sity recently discussed alterations
in its by-laws concerning initia-
tion practices.
The progress study and the re-
sulting changes which may be ef-
fected were caused by initiations
at several fraternity houses which
necessitated medical care for six
Cornell students.
Changes proposed by the IFC
Steering Committee were:
1) No phase of informal initia-
tion shall be of a non-constructive
2) All phases of initiation must

be supervised personally by house
3) Scheduling of initiation shall
be such that it will not prevent a
person from fulfilling his academ-
ic responsibilities.
4) Ample amounts of food and
sleep shall be insured so as not to
impair the health or alertness of
any member.
Discussion centered around part
one and the use of the word "non-
constructive," the 'interpretation
of which was questioned.
It was suggested that "physical"
be inserted after "non-construc-
tive" and also that sections one
and four be combined.
The proposal will be brought to

a vote Sunday, the next IFC meet-

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - Pro-
cessing of questionnaires sent to
alumni has been completed by the
University of Bridgeport Self
Study Committee.
Alumni replied they had found
greatest satisfaction during their
university careers in logical rea-

alumni satisfaction occurred in
maintaining good physical and
mental health, ethical ideas, and
a moral conviction to live up to

AUSTIN, Tex. - A worker


Orange. Building Gets Repairs

the University of Texas yearbook
looked as if she'd seen a ghost. 1
Larry Milton Nobles, a univer-1
sity student, had simply asked for
the yearbook which he ordered
last fall. But the worker on duty
gulped, murmured "Don't go,
away," and ran to consult a su-1
perior staff member.
Nobles was listed on page 40 in
the yearbook - the "In Memor-
iam" section.
TUCSON, Arizona - A traffic
ban proposed to keep students'
cars off campus during class hours
at the University of Arizona has'
been expanded to faculty mem-
bers' automobiles.
The approval of the ban by both
student and faculty committees
will limit university traffic from1
growing to unwieldy proportions.
Absence of cars, it was mentioned,
will also add to the aesthetic value
of the campus.-

DETROIT, Mich. - After seven

Information as to when con-
struction will begin is not yet
available, but the cost of building
the nine-story structure has been
estimated at $2 million.
Fifteen campus religious organ-
izations will be housed in the

Student Council at George Wash-
ington University is considering a
proposed intramural forensic club.
The central purpose of the or-
ganization would be to enable per-
sons, aside from regular univer-

activities as debating, dramatic
monologues, and extemporaneous,
impromptu and radio speaking.
BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Interfra-
ternity Council at Lehigh Univer-
sity will emphasize scholarship in
the fraternity system this year.
IFO plans to have each house
send "a suitably qualified man,"
probably tue scholastic chairman,
to participate in a series of meet-
ings with faculty members who
deal with academic improvement.
The education of pledges, who
were described as "more prone to
scholastic difficulty," will receive
particular emphasis.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Two
UCLA economics professors have
solved the university parking
problem in true scholarly style.
Under the law of supply and de-
mand, with 1,500 faculty members

and only 1,000 parking spaces,
there is still a need for 500 places,
they asserted.
On the basis that campus park-
ing spaces are valuable property,
revenue should be gained from
their use. The professors suggested
that each parking space be sold
for $90 and that the proceeds be
equally divided among the entire

who do not own an automobile,
they claimed, since they would be

closer the realization of a new
building designed for "journalism

MINNEAPOIaS, Minn. - There
is now no excuse for missing
classes at the University of Min-
The university's health service
has announced that students must
hash out excuses for absence with
their instructors.
The low incidence of communi-
cable disease among students dur-
ing the past few years is respon-
sible for the rule change, a spokes-
man said.
"We no longer worry about
large outbreaks of diseases such
as smallpox and diptheria among
students. That was the original
reason for students checking with
the Health Service before return-
ing to classes."
