Clatter, Noise of Airhainmers

That raucous note among the
7oices of spring this year-the
sound of airhammers working on
the General Service Building-
will be squelched soon, according
to superintendent George Thorne.
"Don't get upset," he said.
"We'll be through in a week or ten
That should be welcome news to
the faculty and students currently
being disturbed in Angell Hall and
vicinity. During the warm days
this week, the noise carried so dis-
tinctly through the open windows
in Angell hall that classes resort-
ed to all kinds of tricks to cush-

1. One English professor de-
ided to close all the windows of
-is classroom in Angell Hall which
'aced on State Street. It didn't
vork well because the ensuing
ump in temperature made every-
:ne sleepy. It was quiet, though.
2. Another English professor,
who was reading part of a novel
o his class, solved the problem
:airly well by discovering that
'here was a certain time interval
between traphammer bursts. He
just speeded up his reading, got to
the end of a sentence in the period
of quiet, smiled, waited patiently
during the next blast, and then
went on.
3. A political science professor,
who has the advantage of a big
room, overcame some of the
trouble by seating his class way
over in one corner of the room
away from the noise.
Most of the professors seemed
undisturbed by the noise. One of
them was even curious enough to
go over to see what it was all
Students were disturbed by all
the noise, too, but they didn't have
to stay around Angell Hall most
of the day. As one of them said,
"Downtown it's peaceful. Inside
the Parrot you can't hear the noise
at all."

charge has not been proved in a
court of law."
5. "There has been no judicial
finding that the Communist Party
has been or is acting to create a
clear and present danger to the
United States government."
The Guild said it did "not doubt
that President Ruthven has the
authority" to ban MYDA, but it
criticized the president for not
consulting the Student Legisla-
ture or the Student Affairs Com-
"Therefore," the Guild said,
"such an action as the referendum
proposed by the Student Legisla-
ture is in order."

protection to free speech.
Hack Coplin, president of the
Student Legislature, warned that
the MYDA ban "is only a fore-
runner of what is to come."
"As students," he said, "we
should press for an outlined ac-
creditation system determining the
regulations under which student
organizations may operate and de-
termining also who has the au-
thority to ban them."
Coplin read a Student Legisla-
ture resolution, requesting review
of the charges brought against
MYDA in an open meeting of the
Student Affairs Committee, which
will be submitted to the student
body in an all-campus balloting
