Shuns 'Tattling'
On Illegal Parties

Truman Gives Krug Complete
Approval in Coal Mine Dispute:

Discussing the problem of equal
responsibility for men and womer
found attending unchaperoned,
unapproved parties, Alice C. Lloyd.
Dean of Women, said yesterday
that "there can be true equality
and mutual respect" only when the
coed herself sees "that she shares
with her friends any consequences
of mistakes or infractions of rules
in which both are involved."
Though the "primary responsi-
bility for what goes on within a
fraternity lies with the fraternity,"
Miss Lloyd said in a statement to
The Daily, "undeniably the guests
are accessories and therefore have
their full responsibility too." .
Referring to the recent case in
which Alpha Delta Phi was fined
$100 and seven members $10 each,
she said "it would have been ex-
cellent if the seven guests had
come forward voluntarily and paid
the fine also."
An editorial in yesterday's Daily
attacked the present situation in
which "no active attempt is made
to discover the identity of the
coeds" attending unapproved par-
ties and proposed a method of
applying "pressure from within"
as suitable for identifying them.
Miss Lloyd said she feels that
the question of who is to pay the
penalty for an infraction of rules
is. of secondary importance; she
believes in "preventive medicine"
and "education" rather than pun-
ishment. She pointed out that by
enrolling, students accept the reg-
ulations of the University and that
there are channels through which
th~ey can take steps to change
rules they consider undesirable.
No man will report a coed, "nor
should he be asked to," she said.
The text of Miss Lloyd's state-
ment follows :
"The question of who is going
to pay a penalty seems to me a
secondary matter in the recent
controversy over who takes the
responsibility if there are. infra ;-
tions of the regulations govern-
ing parties in men's houses. I be-
lieve in "preventive medicine"; in
education not punishment. In so
large a community there have to
be some rules. Students by the
act of enrollment at this Univer-
sity accept its regulations. There
are channels by which they can
take steps to change any regula-
tions which they feel are unfair or
unwise. The present regulations
about guests in fraternity houses
had the support of student lead-
ers, both men and women, who
were consulted.
"Obviously the primary respon-

Senate Vote
~Stops lletur'n
1'~() Committee
Final Test Iuie ext
Week on Nomination
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 3-David
I1. Lilienthal, President Truman's
choice for chairman of the Atom-
ic Energy Commission, scored a
major victory today when tle
Senate refused, 52 to 38, to s'nd
his nomination back to commit-
tee for an FBI check,
This was widely interpreted as
meaning that the Senate will
confirm Lilienthal when the final
vote comes, perhaps next week.
Senators Vandenberg (Rep.-
Mhl.) and Taft (Rep.-Ohio),
sometimes regarded as the "big
two" among Senate Republi-
cans, split on the issue.
Taft supported the recommital
motion offered by his first term
colleague, Senator Bricker (Rep.-
Vandenberg, hardly an hour
before the vote, appealed for re-
jection of the motion and for
quick confirmation of Lilienthal
as a "reliable" man.
The Senate had agreed in ad-
vance to recess until Monday
if the Bricker motion lost.
The breathing spell will give
LilientVal's opponents an op-
portunity to decide whether to
carry on the fight next week in
the face of apparently insur-
mountable odds.
Both sides said the opposition
probably mustered its greatest
strength in today's test.
