Summary suspension was recom-
mended by the Student counci'
last night as 'the regular punish-
ment to be meted out by the Uni-
versity disciplinary committee to
any members of the graduating
classes who appear at Swing Out,
Thursday, May 9, under the in-
fluence of liquor.
This action was taken in response
to query from the Senate Commit-f
tee on Student Affairs as to the!
council's feeling about Swing Out.
The Senate Committee intimated'
that it was considering the abolish-
nient of the tradition altogether in
the light of last year's exhibition
of public drunkenness.
The council passed the following
resolution which will be submitted
to the Senate committee:
"Swing Out is one of the oldest
traditions of Michigan and one
which, we feel, every student re-
spects. In recent years there have
been several members of the grad-
uating classes who have, by their
actions,. lowered the dignity that
has been associated with this tradi- I
tion. The indiscretion shown by,
these members has forced the Sen-
ate Committee on Student Affairs
to doubt seriously whether or not
it is feasible to continue Swing Out.

The son of a distinguished Sou-
