PROGRAM NOTES:
Viewers To See Re-Creation of Medieval World

By VANCE INGALLS
LOS ANGELES-Harmful haz-
g policies resulted in the suspen-
on of one UCLA fraternity and
he other's placement on proba-
on.
Theta Xi fraternity was sus-
ended as a result of a hazing in-
dent resulting in the hospitali-
ition of a pledge. Seven fraternity
ficers were placed on probation
>r the remainder of the year.
Such practices as the subjection
f pledges, to long periods of con-
nement and no sleep caused Zeta
si fraternity to be placed on
)rmal probation.

ITHACA - Cornell University's
$5.7 million John M. Olin Library,
currently under construction, may
never be completed, costing the
university virtually its entire in-
vestment, as the result of a geo-
logical blunder.
University geologists declared the
library site to be "inadequate to
support the proposed structure."
Consequently, the university has
ordered all; work to cease pending
further study.
The University has already
pledged itself, in signed contracts,
to over $5 million in jobs con-
nected with the proposed library.

COLUMBUS-A Student Senate
subcommission at Ohio State Uni-
versity has established the areas
of off-campus housing, student ac-
tivities, public relations and dis-
criminatory clauses in fraternities
and sororities, as areas in which
they intend to take action to solve
discrimination problems.

Actors, paintings, medieval music
and Prof. Arthur Eastman of the
English department will recreate
the medieval world in "Steeple in
the Sky," this week's Legacy series
presentation at noon Sunday on
WWJ-TV.
Actors will portray the rules of
courtly love, the lives of peasants,.
monk, knights and merchants. The
program will feature accompani-
ment by a small medieval orches-
tra consisting of two recorders, a
dulcimer and bells, in addition to
paintings done in the period.
Prof. Eastman, narrator of the
program, commented that the
medieval era was probably the last
time in the history of man that
the world was undivided - there
was, one kingdom on earth domi-
nated by the Pope, and aspiring

to an eternl or spiritual kingdom.
"Thissworld was only a stepping-
stone to the next, a pilgrimage . . .
in the next world everything would
be put aright. The good would be
rewarded; the evil damned."

'U' Socialists
Name Goals
By JEAN SPENCER
The University Democratic Soci-
alist Club elected new officers this
week after formulating a state-
ment setting forth their principles,
goals and program.
Michael Mathews, '60M, was
elected chairman; David Golden,
'63, vice-chairman; Patricia Cous-
ens, '61, secretary and John Mag-
ney, '60E, treasurer.
Mathews remarked that this
statement, printed in the club's
first newsletter, is the first of its
kind.
The statement of principles lists
two primary aims of the Demo-
cratic Socialist Club: 1) To provide
a vehicle for the coalescence of
all those who, regardless of party
affiliation, feel a need for ex-
pressing solidarity with the goals
of the socialist movement, and 2)
to fulfill the need for an outlet
for the ideas of socialism on this
campus.
Names Goal
The chief goal of the club is to
seek a world in which modern'
technology will be used "in the
service of man'.rather than for
capitalist profit or the Stalinist
state."
The newsletter statement says
that such a society will be estab-
lished only when all political, eco-
nomic and social decisions rest
with the people, and requires the
abolition of concentrated wealth
and power for a minority.
Further, the' club believes that
such a society will put an end to
"the inequalities and privileges
which breed war."
Supports lNovement
The club's program supports
movements for Civil Rights, all
democratic organizations fighting
for civil liberties, the labor move-
ment and the "growing movement
to end the cold war and the nu-
clear arms race."
In the future, the Democratic
Socialist Club wishes to bring to
the University campus such speak-
ers as Norman Thomas, Erich
Fromm and A. Philip Randolph,
Mathews Concluded.
