Student Conference Splits
On Racial Discrimination

they could not ask their schools
to support the NSO nor to send
delegates to the constitutional
convention next summer.
"This is intimidation," causti-
cally explained Chairman James
Wallace, Prague delegate from the
University of North Carolina, who
succeeded in preserving order in
the assembly where emotions
flared up on both sides.
The acutely alive issue of the
Civil War had descended with a
bang and for more than two hours
of heated discussion, the future of
a unified National Student Organ-
ization was in grave doubt.
Cite Slow Process
An outspoken student from
Georgia explained that while the
Southern delegates personally fa-
vored eliminating discrimination,
they considered it a slow, long-
range proposition and that for
them to urge the support of these
resolutions set down by the "bunch
of Yankees" would alienate their
schools and make their own posi-
tions untenable.
Negro delegates from both the
South and North were on the spot.
At a 3 a.m. caucus the night be-
fore they had weighed the effects
of withdrawal by the Southern
delegates and most of them agreed
that since the formation of the
NSO was the matter of supreme
importance, they would compro-
mise to preserve unity.
South Supported
Their decision to compromise,
presented by Harvard's Clif
Wharton, laid the foundation for
the ultimate agreement. Tw
hours of discussion which included
pleas for unity from Catholic
spokesman Bill Keenan of George-
town University and Lee Marsh of
the AYD, resulted in an over
whelming decision on the third
ballot to give in to the South.
"We've just gone on record as
favoring white supremacy," mut-
tered a delegate, but the confer-
ence drew to a stable conclusion
with the Southern schools re-
maining in the NSO.
There was no doubt among the
delegates, however, that the racial
issue would explode again at the
NSO constitutional convention
next summer.

Sigler Orders
Of State Police
Bids Leonard Curb
Organized Gambling
LANSING, Jan. 7 - () - New
State Police Commissioner Donald
S. Leonard today received orders
from Governor Sigler to clean up
organized gambling in Michigan
and to reorganize the State Police
Detective Division.
Sigler, in a letter outlining his
policy for the operation of the
Michigan State Police, told Leon-
ard that "in addition to removing
all taint of graft and corruption
from the department, I shall ex-
pect you to develop it into the out-
standing law enforcement agency
in America."
Cooperation To Continue
Asserting that he expected a
continuance of the present policy
of cooperating in every way with
local authorities, Sigler said he
wanted the state police to act
whenever the local authorities re-
fuse, are unable, or unwilling to
function properly.
"Organized gambling with all
its bad and corrupting influences,
including payoffs to public offi-
cials, and its difficult social prob-
lems, must not be tolerated," he
declared. "If local authorities do
not take care of that subject I
shall expect your department to do
Reorganization Urged
Sigler said his experiences in
the grand jury had given him an
opportunity to observe the work-
ings of the state police and that
he was "not at all saisfied" with
the detective bureau. "There are
many evidences of inefficiency in
the bureau," he asserted, "and I
shall expect a completely reorgan-
ized department."
Leonard was instructed by the
Governor to present "within a rea-
sonable time" recommendations
for the detective bureau, and to
present within 30 days a list of
every individual in the state po-
lice, 'about whom there is any
