Lloyd Says
Should Lead
Depiores4 ILak o
Criticism of fraternities an
sororities would be silenced if the
assumed "a more positive attituce
of social leadership instead of a
emphasis on ;what should not b
done," Alice C. Lloyd, Dean
Women said in a statement to Thi
Daily yesterday.
"A desire to be 'exclusive' is nc
one of humanity's better traits,
Miss Lloyd said in criticizin
"blackballing." She also feels that
the system is vulnerable in. i:
failure to be "one of the greates
influences" on campus as a beare
of high living standards.
Organized House Clubs
The text of Miss Lloyd's state
ment follows:
"The fraternity-sorority syster
was established on many campuse
shortly before the turn of th
century. On this campus th
groups were organized as hous
clubs and at least one of thei
important functions was the es
tablishment of dignified housin
at a time when the University
had not undertaken housing re
sponsibilities for its students, mei
or women. They still play an im
portant part in the housing sit
uation on this campus.
"Recently fraternities and soror
ities have been under fire in th
national, and to some extent in
local, magazines and journals. The
criticism has been largely levelle
at the method of choosing mem-
bers, generally described as "rush
ing." That system has been var.
iously labelled "superficial, unin-
telligent, snobbish, cruel, undem-
The system started wrong in its
early years when the idea of ex-
clusiveness was stressed and on
"black ball" was sufficient to ba
a rushee from membership. Vot-
ing was frequently done by using
white and black marbles. One
"black ball kept the new studeni
from membership and the mem-
Der who voted with the black did
not have to give any reasons tc
the rest of the group.
Three Quarters' Majority
"If the system of voting were
changed to a requirement of a
three-quarters' majority vote with
no emphasis, publicly or privately
expressed, on keeping students
out of the group but rather an at-
titude of including as many mem-
hers as the group is allowed to
take, much would be aecomplish-
ed psychologically by taking thr
stigma away from a failure to be
There would be disappointment,
of course, but not the sense of
social failure for unknown rea-
sons which is so often the case
still for those students not in-
vited to membership. In other
words, a positive instead of a neg-
ative attitude would be better. A

Villa ge Council
Election Plans
Are Approved
Moving in the direction of .what
was termed an 'unincorporated
village,' a Willow Run mass meet-
ing Sunday evening approved a
plan for the election next monta

of a 22-man village council which
will attempt to cope with the as-
sorted common problems of vil-
lage tenants.
The plan, as drawn up by a ten-
man committee, calls for the ap-
portionment of the village into
eleven districts, each of which
will be served by two representa-
tives. The district comprising the
apartment-unit area, and includ-
ing the University's married vil-
lage residents, will be divided on
a population basis, while the sin-
gle men's and women's dormi-
tories will comprise a single dis-
trict, entitled to two delegates.
Elections for council members was
approved for the last week in
April, with the exact date to be
announced later.
Among problems to be met by
the council when it convenes, will
be the still pressing electrical cir-
cuit difficulties and methods for
improving drainage at Willow

Approves Karl Marx Society

With Political Groups
Students Unaffiliated


Gambling Ruled Out
For Michigras Fete

Revival of the Karl Marx So-
ciety on this campus was ap-
proved yesterday by the Student
Affairs Committee.
The Society, active as a student
group from 1940 to 1944, pledged
itself 'not to promote political or
legislative activity of any kind."
It was accepted "as a study club
within limits of the request as
specified in the constitution
which was submitted."
The constitution said that
membership in the Society is
"open to all students, regardless
of political affiliation or belief."
It declared that the Society was
not affiliated with any national
organization, trade union or po-
litical party.
Faculty sponsor is Prof. John L.

A spokesman for the Society
said that its aims were "to study
the simpler economic and philos-
ophical teachings of Marxism and
their intellectual contribi ition to
the world."

Feb. 28 was the Marxian Study
Society in the first disciplinary
action taken against a Wayne stu-
dent organization under Gov. Kim

Forty-three delegates represent-

House committee last Friday for
five hours, during which Haydon
and Schacht told the committee
that a campus survey showed 69
per cent of working students felt
necessary outside work impaired
their studies.
Michigan delegates, in formal
meetings before and after the
hearing, talked with Senator Hom-
er Ferguson, Rep. Earl Michener,
Rep. Fred Bradley, and VA Ad-
ministrator Gen. Omar Bradley.
"Several of the committeemen,
and the, Michigan congressmen,
with the exception of Michener
who was non-committal, definitely
favor some sort of subsistence in-
crease. Rep. M e a d definitely
wants an increase for married
vets. But no one committed him-
self to the support of the Rogers
Bill, or came out for any fixed in-
crease," Haydon said.

Sirprise Move
Countered By
U.S. Proposal
Marshall Offers Plan
For Limiting Troops
By The Associated Press
MOSCOW, March 10-Soviet
Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov in
a surprise move tonight injected
the enormously complicated China
question into the opening session
of the four-power foreign minis-
ters conference on Austria and
U.S. Secretary of State George
C. Marshall blocked an imnmedate
vote on Molotov's proposal to place
China onf th- sr"c'/' *'rh*l1l
then countered with a diplomatic
surprse o1 tits owi, L46eALng
that the conference discuss limi-
tation of allied troops in occupied
countries of Europe.
The Russian diplomat, who
presided over the opening ses-
sion of the momentous meeting,
said China should be discussed
in the light of the Moscow Con-
ference of 1945, at which the
United States, Britain and Rus-
sia agreed to a policy of non-in-
tervention in Chinese affairs.
Marshall replied he had no fun-
damental objection to such a dis-
cussion, but wanted to think it
over at least until tomorrow.
Molotov said that he, too, would
like to think over Marshall's pro-
posal about limitation of allied oc-
cupation troops, before agreeing
to place it on the agenda.
The opening session of the
conference, held while the So-
viet capital was engulfed in a
heavy snowstorm, moved with
surprising speed and with many
expressions of good will.
Besides discussing the China
and occupation army proposals,
the ministers also:
1. Agreed to liquidate perman-
ently the militaristic German
state of Prussia. This action, al-
ready carried out in effect, was
recommended by the Allied Con-
trol Council for Germany and the
Deputy Foreign Ministers.
2. Agreed on a six-point agenda
as outlined at their last meeting,
held in New York.

tually authorized those acts of ap-

The two decisions found the
justices widely split. They cleared
the court's calendar of top labor

Congressmen commenting on the

that if restrictions on unioniza-
tion of foremen are deemed desir-
able, Congress must act.
