Conduct Rules
Reworded for
Clarification
Concern Liquor Use,
Mixed Social Events
University student conduct reg-
ulations concerning social events
and liquor have been reworded in
order to clear up certain misun-
derstandings.
At a special meeting the Uni-
versity Committee on Student
Conduct:
Made clear that only mixed
parties approved by the Office of
Student Affairs on the Monday
prior to the time of the event
will be permitted.
Specifically outlawed the pres-
ence of liquor in student quar-
ters._
Avoids Misunderstanding
This action was taken by the
committee because previously
worded regulations outlining sub-
stantially the same rules had been
misinterpreted. When it was
learned that the former wording
had left some doubt as to the
exact meaning of the regulations
they were reworded.
A university spokesman said the
reworded rules concerning mixed
social events are designed to dis-
courage "spontaneous" parties.
Under terms of the new wordingi
mixed social events must be re-
ported to the Office of Student
Affairs on the Monday before the
day of the event. The mere pres-
ence of chaperones will not con-
stitute University approval of
mixed parties in student resi-
dences.
University authorities empha-
sized that no permits would be
granted for social events reported
to the Office of Student Affairs
after Monday preceding the week-
end before they are slated to take
place. A list of all approved!
parties will appear each Wednes-
day in the Daily Official Bulletin.
Outlaws Liquor
The reworded liquor rules state
that intoxicating liquors are notl
permitted in residences. The prev-
ious wording had stated only thatt
the presence of liquor in studentt
residences was disapproved.
According to the University
Committee on Student Conduct,I
the presence or use of liquor in
student quarters has a tendencyt
to impair student morale. TheI
committee adds that the use o
presence of liquor is contrary toI
the best interests of the students.
The committee which drew up
the regulation is mde up of
three members of the Universityt
Senate appointed by the Presi-
dent, The Dean of Women, thet
deans of the various schools ofr
the University and the Dean oft
Students who chairmans, thec
group.t

'Messiah' To Be Given
Two performances of the "Mes-
U' Scientists
Tell Discovery
New evidence that the heat of
the sun is greater than its surface
heat of 6,000 degrees centigrade
was discovered by University as-
tronomers at the McMath-Hulbert
Observatory at Lake Angelus this
summer.
Evidence was provided by ex-
periments with the "snooper-
scope," which controls a recorder
that traces the sun's spectrum on
paper, showing in dark "lines" the
atomic activity in the sun's at-
mosphere. Atoms in the sun's
atmosphere had absorbed heat
from the surface of the sun which
gave the atoms higher heat than
that of the surface.
By tracing the lines of the
atoms, the scientists discovered
that the atmosphere had absorbed;
more energy from the surface of
the sun than would be expected
on the basis of the 6,000 degree
temperature.gr

siah" will be given, Dec. 13 and
Dec.,14. Frances Yeend, soprano;

Adams Lauds
Vet Students
On Campus.
A University spokesman, Prov-
ost James P. Adams, has lauded
the veteran student.
In a recent interview Adams
declared that veteran students
have made good use of the educa-
tional opportunities offered to
them." He said veterans have ap-
proached their academic work
seriously without asking for any
special considerations.
Faculty Satisfied
Adams also pointed out that
from all sides members of the fac-
ulty have expressed satisfaction
with the scholastic work of the
veteran student.
Turning to the general question
of the veteran's educational pro-
gram, Adams said that after two
years the experimental phase of
the program has been passed. He
calls the veterans educational pro-
gram not a great experiment, but
a demonstrated success.
Successful System
According to Adams this suc-
cessful system of veterans educa-
tion is remarkable in view of the
fact that universities and col-
leges have been faced with great-
ly overcrowded conditions because
of swollen enrollments. The Uni-
versity cheerfully faced #the
crowded conditions and other in-
conveniences because authorities
realized the necessity of helping
the veteran catch up on his edu-
cation, the provost said in ef-
fect.
And now that most of the prob-
lems connected with educating
large numbers of veterans have
been solved; the problems of
housing, additional instructors,
and crowded class rooms; Adams
declared that the Universify is
proud to have had an important
part in what he calls this great
educational project.

Certificates
Of Eligibility
Now Ready
Rules of Participation
In Activities Given
Certificates of Eligibility, those
essential permits necessary for
students wishing to take part in
extra-curricular activities, ay
now be picked up at the Office of
Student Affairs in Rm. 2, Uni-
versity Hall.
Rules governing the issuance of
eligibility certificates are substan-
tially the same during the fall
semester. The only major change
concerns students who have been
excused from gymnasium work be-
cause of physical incapacity who
must secure special permission
from the Committee on Student
Affairs before eligibility certifi-
cates will be issued.
All other students above the
rank of Freshman may secure the
certificates if they have earned at
least a C average during the pre-
vious semester. Complete rules
cncerning second semester Fresh-
men and other special cases will
be printed in full in the Daily
Official Bulletin.
The Office of Student Affairs
asks that students present an of-
ficial report of grades when ap-
plying for the certificates. How-
ever, if grade reports or blueprints
have been mislaid certificates will
be issued to students who sign a
special form which is available in
the Office of Student Affais.
Ask Approval
Of Constitution
Academic Freedom
GroupWill Convene
A newly-drafted constitution
for the Michigan Academic Free-
dom Committee will be submitted
for ratification before the group's
second statewide conference Oct.
11 at Lane Hall.
The young organization, estab-
lished last May, will bring to-
gether delegates from campuses,
trade unions, veterans organiza-
tions and religious groups
throughout the state. It seeks to
clarify and integrate the activities
of the various bodies so as to pro-
vide concerted action to meet
common threats to academic free-
dom.
Write Constitution
A 12-man executive board,
elected at the May meeting has
worked on the constitution this
past summer and, as commis-
sioned by the convention, will
submit the document before a
second general meeting. The
group includes Prof. John L.
Brumm, recently retired chair-
man of the journalism depart-
ment, Prof. Preston Slosson of
the history department and Uni-
versity students Lorne Cook and
Morton Rosenthal.
AYD Reinstatement
In line with its credo. the or-

Mark
Five of Units
To Be Used
In Fall Term
More Facilities Still
Needed,_Officials Say
The multi-million dollar Uni-
versity expansion program de-
signed to provide nine additional
buildings, has reached the half-
way mark.
Five of the new units are being
used for the first time this sem-
ester, while the remaining build-
ings are being rushed to comple-
tion. However, University author-
ities have pointed out that physi-
cal facilities will still be inad?-
quate for the swollen enrollment
even when the entire construe-
tion program is completed.
University enrollment is expe -
ted to level off at 18,000 in the
next few years, but the completed
construction program. will find
Michigan with a physical plant
normally adequate for only12,500.
The giant 'expansion program
met with frequent setbacks
Several times labor trouble
stalled construction work for a
few days. And during last
spring's phone strike the al-
leged employment of "sca"
labor by~ the University threat-
ened to halt construction work
completely when building trades
workers discussed walking off
the job in protest.
For a time the entire construc-
tion program seemed stalemated
when an economy drive in the
state legislature threatened to
drastically limit scholastic build-
ing funds. However, after lengthy
debate the legislature appropri-
ated sufficient funds to continue
with the program. One of the
proposed units, a maternity hos-
pital, had to be abd
lack of funds.
With the question of funds
removed, during the spring sem-
ester work went ahead on all
units of the expansion program.
Housing was given top priority
and as a result the University
Terrace Apartments for married
students has been completed
while the addition to the East
Quadrangle of men's residences
is slated for full occupancy next
month.
Other units complete or nearing
completion include the East Engi-
neering addition which is finished,
the food service building which
will be ready in the fall and a por-
tion of the new Business Adminis-
tration building which is current-
ly being used for classes.
Slated for completion by next
semester are the Chemistry addi-
tion and another portion of the
Business Administration building.
However, the giant General Serv-
ice Building will not be ready until
next summer. No dates have been
set for completion of the new wo-
mens' dormitory and the Hospital
Storage Building.
Singers Plan

Fall Program
The Varsity Men's Glee Club,
composed of students from all
University colleges, has made
plans for the first season of full-
scale, peacetime activities in six
years, this fall.
In addition to a number of con-
certs planned for Michigan cities,
the club will make a short mid-
western trip and a ten-day spring
tour through the East, including
concerts in New York, Philadel-
phia and Washington.
Organized in 1859 as the Michi-
gan Mandolin and Glee Club, the
organization has a longer history
than any other collegiate vocal
group in the country.
With their traditional responsi-
bility of preserving Michigan's
college songs, the club has toured
the country from coast to coast
and has sung in most of the
major cities.
