Work of IFC
In Bias Issue
Under Fire
Morrison Raps
Hansen Charges
By JAMES GREGORY
Dick Morrison, '50, chairman of
.fFC's subcommittee on discrimin-
ation, yesterday denounced as "ir-
responsible" AIM Chairman Walt
Hansen's charge that IFC is lag-
ging in the campus fight against
discrimination.
Hansen's claim was made Tues-
diay night in an AIM Executive
Council meeting at which he also
attacked the discrimination sub-
committee.
MORRISON, TFC vice-president,
promised that a policy statement
would be issued by his subcommit-
tee after its next meeting.
At the AIM meeting, Hansen,
'50, declared, "It seems to me
that IFC is giving no more than,
'r lip service to its anti-discrim-
ination policy." Discussion of the
a~ matter was informal, and no of-
ficial action was taken by AIM.
"Making membership in the sub-
committee voluntary is practical-
ly an encouragement for no ac-
tion," Hansen said. "It seems they
are only talking out of the side of
their mouth."
HE SUGGESTED that AIM Ex-
ecutive Council members prod SL
to take up the discrimination issue
again.
Morrison, when told of Han-
sen's action, said, "Hansen's sug-
gestion that SL start another
witch hunt on discrimination ap-
pears to me to be irresponsible.
"It is unlikely to produce a con-
structive attitude toward the prob-
lem on anyone's part," Morrison
declared.
THE DAILY reported last week
that the subcommittee was polling
fraternity men to learn their
stands on discrimination.
Hansen declared, "In a very
real sense IFC's work on dis-
crimination is none of our busi-
ness - except asineeited st- .
dents. "
But he unofficially advocated
use of letters to The Daily, plus
word-of-mouth contact, to per-
suade SL to resume the work it
had let IFC take over last spring.
Morrison yesterday declared,
"The IFC subcommittee will after
its next meeting issue a policy
statement on its approach to the
problem, the intended scope of its
work and its major objectives as
conceived up to that time."
Dean Keniston
To Explain Lit
School Grades
Some of the whys and where-
fores of the literary college's com-
petitive grading system may be ex-
plained next week when Dean
Hayward Keniston returns from
a University business trip to Wash-
ington.
A succession of letters to the
editor in The Daily have asked
that Dean Keniston throw some
light on the reasons for what one
writer called "an intellectual race
track" grading policy.
* * *

THE LETTERS followed a lec- I
ture by the dean on liberal edu-
cation given before a speech as-
sembly audience.
In his talk, Dean Keniston
said that the responsibility for
obtaining a well-rounded liberal
education lay primarily with the
student. The dean pointed to
intellectual curiosity as the only
guarantee of a liberal educa-
tion.
Students have protested that
they don't have enough time to
broaden their interests and know-
ledge outside of their selected
courses.
SOME CLAIMED this is due to
the highly competitive marking
system which places a premium on
rote learning and not broad un-
derstanding.
Dean Keniston is expected to
make a statement on the contro-
versy early next week.

The Center for Japanese Studies
will take to the field in February
with the establishment of a re-
search branch in Okayama, Japan.
Prof. Robert B. Hall, center di-
rector, said yesterday that the
project, which is the first of its
kind, already has backing from the
Carnegie Institute, the University
and the Social Research Commis-
sion totalling $230,000.
* * *
THE FIRST GROUP to hit
Japan will consist of two faculty
members and four graduate stu-
dents, Prof. Hall said.
They will operate from a large
Japanese house and a 20 room
dormitory which has been leased
by the University from the
Army.
The field crew will study the en-
tire social structure of several vil-
lages and one city which are lo-
cated on the south end of the is-
land of Honshu, bordering on the
Japanese inland sea.
THE MAIN PROBLEM which
the researchers will tackle is the
impact of industrial civilization
on the Inland sea area.
Before the industrial era, Japan
had a feudal culture, Prof. Hall
said.
The field branch is the first of
any school which has an "area
study program" to be actually set
up on the spot.

Top Board Given
Broad Powers
By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND - Two left wing
unions were kicked out at the CIO
convention yesterday and the
union's executive board was given
sweeping "instructions" to oust
nine or 10 others as the group
moved against its Communist ele-
ments.
The United Electrical Workers,
the CIO's third largest, was the
first to be expelled but was soon
followed by the Farm Equipment
Workers.

Senior class president Wally
Teninga toldsStudentLegislature
last night ,that SL's hoped-for ex
officio seat on the Board in Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics is
unnecessary because of the two
students who are now members.
Teninga, one of the members of
the 13-man Board, said that they
are there for the good of the stu-
dents and work to iron out any
problems that might come up.
* * *
THE TWO student members
have an equal say at the meetings
and it listens to their proposals
and recommendations, he said.
The Board discusses every-
thing from the building expan-
sion plan to football program
prices, Teninga added.
He pointed out that approval of
an SL representative on the Board
would have to come from the
Board of Regents.

LEGISLATOR Tom Walsh made
the motion for an SL seat at the
Legislature's last meeting in an
attempt to make a closer liason
between the Board and SL.
"I don't think an SL repre-
sentative is necessary," Teninga
said. 'If there is friction or con-
fusion arising between students
and the Board, it can be ironed
out through the present repre-
sentatives."
Additional business consisted of
a change in J-Hop committee elec-
tion procedure, as a result of a
two-thirds vote by the Legislature.
* *
THE VOTE WAS 33 votes for
the motion, three against and
seven abstinences. Seven mem-
bers were not present at the time
to vote. One approving vote was
made with the right to reconsider;
the measure at a special session of
the Legislature called for 7:30 p.m.
next Wednesday.

Jobs to Close
Job registration material mustI
be filled out and returned to the
Bureau of Appointments by 4 p.m.
tomorrow, Dr. T. Luther Purdom,
director of the Bureau, reminded
students yesterday.
A fine of $1.00 must be charged
for any blanks turned in after to-
morrow, Dr. Purdom pointed out.
Fewer than half of the students
have returned their blanks to the
Bureau so far, he said, adding that
all material must be checked be-
fore it is accepted.

Under the new plan, students
would vote for J-Hop candidates
preferentially as they now do
for SL candidates, by marking
their ballots with numbers in-
stead of X's. A number one vote
would count 10 on down to -one
point for a number 10 vote.-
The Legislature also voted toC
drop the idea or organizing a stu-
dent-operated book store for the
sale of new books and supplies for
the present, but will make a con-
tinuing survey of possibilities.

gate the potentialities of setting
Student Legislature last night
passed a motion to underwrite
the last pep rally of the season
the Friday before the Ohio
State game Nov. 19.
An additional motion slipped
.by. the Legislature 23 to 19 to
authorize SL's varsity commit-
tee to raise "up to $75" for the
cost of the rally in the same
way it campaigned to send the
band to Ohio State last year.
The committee will personally
solicit residence halls,-organi-
zations and individuals.
In underwriting the ralliesi
before the Army and Minnesota
games, SL lost $105, and felt
that because of the service to
students and the interest shown
in the rallies, organizations
other than the Legislature
should foot at least part of the
bill.

was established here in 1947 as
part of a new approach to the
study of other countries and other
cultures.
"WORLD WAR II showed that
we didn't know much about for-
eign countries and that our ex-
perts were conrined to limited
fields," Prof. Hall explained.
"To make peace work, wef
must have trained people whoI

* * *
can give accurate information
on other people and their prob-
lems."
Prof. Hall secured permission
for the research center from Gen.
Douglas MacArthur last summer
on the condition that the Univer-
sity unit provide all of its own
food and necessities.
THE GROUP will take its own
automobiles, furnaces and supplies

* * *
along with it and food will be
shipped to them.
At present, the center consists
of 30 students, some of whom
have been studying the broad
phases of far eastern culture
such as history, politics, econom-
ics and sociology for nearly
three years.
The purposes of the center, ac-
cording to Prof. Hall are:
To train specialists on Japan.
To expand the 30,000 book Jap-
anese library here.
To carry out and publish re-
search on Japanese culture.
The overseas unit will probably
train some Japanese to take sam-
ples of native opinion, for use in
the study, Prof. Hall added.

The "instructions" directed
the executive board "to take ap-
propriate action to protect the
CIO" from members following
the line of "the Communist
Party, any fascist organization
or other totalitarian movement."
Some observers believe, however,
that a few of the nine or 10 unions
threatened by this directive may
be given another chance to get
back into the organization's good
graces.

TO CAPTURE the bulk of the
UE's 375,000 members, the Execu-
tive Board chartered the Interna-
tional Union of Electrical, RNad9
and Machine Workers, in a meet-
ing between convention sessions.
The FE previously was ordered
to merge with the United Auto
Workers.
Continuing the anti-Commu-
nist drive the convention adopted
a constitutional amendment which
gives the Executive Board power
to expel any of its members who
is judged by that group to be a
Red or a fellow traveler.
THERE WAS little objection to
the expulsion moves on the con-
vention floor. Only about 50 of
the 613 delegates present stood in
opposition when the move was put
to a standing vote.
There was not even any de-
bate on th~e booting of the FE.
While President Walter Reuther
of the UAW was branding the UE
leadership as "morally bankrupt;"
Albert Fitzgerald, president of the
union, charged in New York that
the CIO leaders have "abandoned
unionism in favor of politics."
* * *
IN THE ABSENCE of the UE of-
ficers, ILWU President Harry
Bridges led the fight against the
resolution at the convention.
"There has not been one
charge,"' he declared, "that the
union has not done a job for its
members."
