Discipline Committee

THE UNIVERSITY Sub-committee on Dis-
cipline seems determined to uphold the
University law prohibiting drinking in cam-
pus residences as witnessed by its decision
to fine Psi Upsilon $2,000 and place the
house on a year's social probation.
The University law derives its strength
from a Michigan statute forbidding the
sale of alcoholic beverages to minors
which has been stretched to include all
students living in University residences,
regardless of age.
Although the alternative of allowing 21
year old students to drink in specified places
in the houses has been offered, no action
has been taken on it, and the University
regulation remains.
The Office of Student Affairs is in charge
of enforcing the regulation, but their meth-
ods are not conductive to getting student
support. With the avowed purpose of teach-
ing students not to drink in residences, they
create antagonism by staging surprise
'raids.'
After the raid, the infraction is turned
over to the sub-committee for a decision on
the type of punishment. The subcommittee,
then, is a purely judicial body, but in its
methods it resembles a star chamber.
There is no established punishment po-
licy for an infraction of the drinking
regulation. Houses which have violated it
haven been given as light sentences as a
$25 fine or as heavy as a semester's ban-
ishment from campus.
Supposedly these punishments are based
on number and extent of infractions, but
the judgements handed down by the com-
mittee don't jibe with this theory. Assuming
that each case is treated individually, it is
then up to the mood and temperament of
the disciplinary board to decide the punish-
ment.
When a man is convicted before the bar
he knows the maximum and minimum pen-
alties prescribed by justice for his particular

crime. The least the subcommittee could do
would be to give the fraternities a maximum
and minimum penalty expectation.
It is assumed that this subcommittee has
the interests of the students in mind. Its
actions, completely lacking in uniformity
and regularity, cause tremendous student re
sentment.
If the subcommittee believes that this re-
sentment is not pagsed on to tax-paying
parents and relatives in the sttae, they are
wrong.
Last Christmas one of the first questions
asked home-coming students was, "What's
the campus reaction to the banning of the
DKE chapter?" This led to the actions of
the subcommittee being thoroughly thrashed
out.
To counter this in-state resentment the
group should establish a uniform punish-
ment scale. All fraternities are aware that
their third infraction will send them off-
campus for an undetermined time, so this,
scale would not get members busily figur-
ing out if they could afford a party. They
know they can't and remain recognized stu-
dent organizations.
But it would stop campus comment about
a tyrannical, Star-Chamber type justice,
and show parents that the University has
taken definite steps to enforce its laws.
The actions of the subcommittee usural-
ly involve fines. The subcommittee's pun-
ishments are supposed to teach students
to obey the University regulations. But
fines, especially such large ones as the
Psi Upsilon $2,000 are not paid by the stu-
dents. Parents, relatives, scholarship don-
ors and local merchants who employ the
students actually give this money, and in
many cases the student doesn't even suf-
fer a reduced income.
If the subcommittee would remove its fine
system in favor of more direct methods, and
establish a uniform standard of punish-
ment, state and campus antagonism would
diminish and the subcommittee's decisions
would be respected as well as feared.

Michigan's
Governor
IN AN EDITORIAL in yesterday's Daily,
Janet Watts asserted that Harry F. Kelly
should be governor of Michigan because
having the support of the Republican State
Legislature he would be able to get things
done.
The writer seems to think that getting
things done should be an end in itself.
She declares that if Williams were gover-
nor . . . "the business of the state would
be reduced to continuous friction and
fighting between the governor and the
legislature. In the end, the people of the
state suffer because little, if any positive
legislation can be produced."
It is my opinion that the people of the
state will suffer more from the reactionary
type of legislation Kelly and the Legislature
would produce than if the State Govern-
ment produced no legislation at all. It is
better to remain pat than to go backwards.
Miss Watts admits that Williams is a
"wise and capable leader." If this were also
true of all the members of the State Legis-
lature, then there shouldn't be a constant
deadlock between the governor and the leg-
islature. But if the actions of members of
the Legislature are not always wise and ra-
tional, then Williams is desperately needed
to check them. But Miss Watts .thinks it
more important that bills become laws,
notwithstanding their constructiveness or
destructiveness.
The editorial also claims that Kelly would
be the better governor because "he is cap-
able of designing a progressive program."
She points to the fact that when Kelly was
governor he worked to increase vorkmen's
compensation, provided additional educa-
tion, medical and vocational services for the
blind and helped establish an excellent
veterans aid program. The fact is that Kelly,
the great progressive, spent a good part of
his campaign attacking Williams for his
efforts to extend and improve the state's
welfare system. Socialism, I think, the pro-
gressive Kelly called it.

McCarran Act

Honor System'
THE AVERAGE large undergraduate exam-
ination now given in lit school lacks only
barred windows of being the most thorough-
ly proctored thing next to the playground
at Alcatraz.
To an unsuspe ng freshman entering
his first one, the impression is, to say the
least, terrifying. Prowling up and down
the jong rows of concentrating students
are a few dozen proctors, closely watching
the exam takers to see that their eyes
never stray from their papers. Down at
the front of the room are several more
proctors, keeping tabs on the students, and,
apparently, on the other proctors. Finally,
a few are stationed at the doors to examine
bluebooks for superfluous markings, when
they are handed in.
Instead of being a sort of third degree, or
a minor inquisition, this is normal operating
procedure to "prevent cheating." The atti-
tude of most administrators, as is evidenced
by their support of this kind of testing, might
indicate that they consider most literary
college students to be congenital cheats, or
at least endowed with strong tendencies to-
vyard that crime. The students must, there-
fore, be watched like unruly children, as they
are supposedly incapable of restraining
themselves.
However true or untrue this may be, the
accusation becomes somewhat less tenable
when compared with the reasonably suc-
cessful operation of the engineering school
honor system.
This system does away with proctors, and
place the responsibility on the students
themselves. They are required to sign a no-
cheating pledge .on their test papers. This
effectively does away with the cat and mouse
game of cheating carried on in most big lit
school exams. The obligation to catch cheat-
ers is delegated to each individual student,
who report the offenders to a student coun-
cil for disciplinary action.
Thus, if students still retain any sem-
blance of integrity (and we believe that
they do), they are given the chance to
behave themselves of their own volition.
This is not a minor advantage. As one rea-
son for attending a university is to make a
student into a more mature and responsible
individual, it might be well to give him a
chance. P
Although heavily proctored exams might
seem most practical to administrators at the
present time, long-range planning would cer-
tainly give the nod tow the honor system in
lit school. The University could save money,
the professors could save work, and the stu-
dents would get -a new breath of freedom
in a phase of the educational system that
could stand some airing.

THERE EXISTS, it is good to remember,

THE LONG LIST of objectionable Mc-
Carran Act incidents has been made a
little longer with the announcement that
the Attorney General's office will soon be-
gin an investigation of all foreign students
in this country.
This new international insult is really
far worse than those which came with
the detention of numerous Germans,
Italians, Austrians and Spaniards in the
past few weeks for possible association
with totalitarian governments.
In following out that part of the Mc-
Carran Bill that requires a check of all alien
students for possible former affiliation with
totalitarian parties, the Justice Depart-

ART
UNDER THE AUSPICES of the Ann Arbor
Association an exhibition of drawings
and prints will be on display in the Rack-
ham gallery from' tonight's public opening
(7:30-9:30) until Dec. 7. For the local art
lover this small show has a special signifi-
cance: all the works were executed by Ann
Arbor artists, and all are for sale, most at
very modest prices.
Indeed the cost range of prints and draw-
ings-often unbelievably low as compared
with oils and water colors, yet with no dim-
inution of their loveliness and authority as
original works of art-makes them ideal
media for the beginning collector.
Without exaggeration I can predict the
collector will find a surprisingly-extensive
variety of possible acquisitions, many of the
highest quality for beauty of composition
and technique, and not a few that offer that
traditional lure to the canny collector,
namely the opportunity for favorable in-
vestment.
Easily the most distinguished entries can
be marked among the handsome aggrega-
tion of aquatints, etchings, mezzotints, wocul
engravings, serigraphs, lithographs, and pen
and brush drawings of five members of the
faculty. Outstanding choices are Valerio's
"Reclining Figure" and "The Mask," show-
ing his rare virtuosity in exploiting-the hu-
man figure as a semi-abstract theme; La-
More's abstract fantasies, "The Mocker" and
"Jet Models;" and Carlos Lopez's vigorous
and moving "Horse," "Bull," and "Two
Birds," with their wonderful contrasts, in
texture, line, and value. Richard Wilt's re-
markable drawings (DAILY Review Nov. 2,
1950) and Emil Weddige's lithographs meet
the same high standards.
Not all the competent exhibitors can be
mentioned by name, but the singularly ma-
ture and professional work of two students
must be noted individually, as much for
their intrinsic merit and promise as for the
fact of their student status. Hal McIntosh's
"Blind Girl with Birds," and "Sisters" and
John Goodyear's "Up in the Air" and "La-
ment" are a few among a representation
consistently praiseworthy.
William Lewis, Alice K. Reischer, and
Mina Winslow have also contributed sensi-
tive and charming drawings. An excellent,
but limited display of ceramics, featuring
the work of Grover Cole, G. Orear, and the
team of Lopez v Lonez. roinds nut the ex-

ment is not only insulting students who, in
many cases, have been invited to this coun-
try, it is destroying an ideal of democracy
and internationalism that has been built
up over a long period by both American uni-
versities and the government itself.
The universities and the government have
long welcomed the opportunity to give for-
eign scholars a chance to come to this coun-
try to study. And the State Department
found that a student exchange program was
one of the best methods of putting the idea
of American democracy across to the people
of the Axis nations. Numerous groups of
Germans studied at the University in the
past few years. University students and fa-
culty members alike hailed the exchange
program as an effective plan for interna-
tional understanding and cooperation. In
fact educators throughout the nation have
called for an extended exchange program as
the best possible way of re-educating our
former enemies.
But now the McCarran Act, if properly
enforced would ruin the whole exchange
set-up. The program will be hampered even
with the Attorney-General's discretionary
power of choosing who will be allowed to
enter the country without much delay.
This clause of the McCarran Act is but
one which shows the measure to be an
"America for the Americans" piece of
legislation that is fully out of tune with
present ways of thinking in this country.
Instead of showing the world that the
United States wishes whole-heartedly for
international order, the McCarran Act
provides Russia with a chance to say that
this nation only seeks its own welfare by
a method of international persecution.
The best way to make sure that the Mc-
Carran Act does not cause any more trouble
for this country,is for Congress to revise
the measure when it returns to Washington
this month.

CURRENT MOVIES
At The Michigan....
DIAL 1119, with Marshall Thompson,
Sam Levene, and Leon Ames. Also THE
GOLDEN TWENTIES, produced by March
of Time.
THORNTON WILDER has belatedly hit
the movies, and the effect of his "The
Bridge of San Luis Rey" is evident in this
story of a homocidal maniac loose in a city.
Five assorted people are trapped in a bar
with the killer who has ordered the police
to send for the psychiatrist who treated him
on his first rampage. The police have 25
minutes to get the doctor; the five have the
25 minutes to live unless lie comes.
While the sum of writers King plus Mc-
Guire does not equal Wilder, this is not to
deny that there were more than a few
deft touches and moments of suspense.
Playing with the feature is a short (if
60 minutes can be called short) called the
"Golden Twenties," and I an inclined to
think that this should have gotten the top
billing. Produced by the March of Time, this
is a pictorial review of that almost legendary
period following the first World War. It re-

Rent Controls ...
To the Editor:
STUDENT LEGISLATURE is now
investigating the need for rent
controls in the Ann Arbor Area
This project affects every student
on the University campus for de-
controls would directly affect over
five thousand students and the re-
sulting rise in prices would touch
everyone else.
The investigation is being ac-
complishedby a telephone brigade
which is attempting to reach al
students in private housing before
the Ann Arbor City Council comes
to any definite decision about re-
taining rent controls.
The cooperation of all those be-
ing questioned is necessary if the
Student Legislature is to be of
any value to the Ann Arbor City
Council in making its decision. The
fairness or lack of it in Ann Ar-
bor rents cannot be determined
unless everyone helps. No names
will be used in the SL's final hous-
ing report.
For those who wish to express
their opinions on this subject, the
Student Legislature Building at
122 South Forest is open from 3
p.m. to 5 p.m. each Thursday.

To the Editor
HAVE read with surprise the
letter printed on the Nov. 11,
1950 issue of the Daily by Mr. Vic-
tor Bloom on behalf of his more
mature-minded and sophisticated
friends, as an answer to Mr. Sarri,
whom he calls a "Rah-Rah Alum-
nus." I really believe that Mr.
Bloom has a lot of mature friends
but could it be that they like the
glory of a winning football team
and cannot take criticism In de-
feat? These are the "Rah-Rah
Boys."
This should take care of Mr.
Bloom's meaningless remarks and
now I would like to answer Mr.
Ralph W. Aigler's letter with re-
gard to the same subject.
Mr. Aigler mentioned the fact
that long periods of success bring
the problem of the Alumni and
Student Body hoping to win in-
definitely. Although this is true,
at the same time, it creates a feel-
ing of security, overconfidence, and
a tendency toward resting on past
performances and laurels obtained
by former teams.
Mr. Sarri's letter has left me
with the impression that he was
not mainly concerned with the fact
that we lost to a certain team since
nowhere in his letter did he make
any reference to the two previous
losses suffered by Michigan. His
concern was not about the loss in
itself but because of the disap-
pointing way in which it happened.
There is no harm in self-criticism
if it honestly seeks to find out why
and how the team lost.
Mr. Ralph Aigler confined him-
self to a lot of generalities and in
no part of his letter could I find
a direct or indirect answer to the
questions that Mr. Sarri posed. I
would like to point out the fact
that they were answered in his
favor by the performance of the
neglected players of the team, last
Saturday.
1.-Lowell Perry who, in the
games previous to the Illinois
game, proved himself to be the
outstanding receiver of the Michi-
gan team, and was used only twice
in the afore-mentioned game, dis-
tinguished himself again last Sat-
urday, proving that full use is
not made of our best players.
2.-Chuck Ortmann, who in my
opinion is one of the greatest of-
fensive stars in Michigan's foot-
ball history, was used as a safety
man in the two previous games and
proved himself inadequate in that
capacity. In spite of that fact, and
in spite of the fact that Lowell
Perry had previously proved to be

an outstanding safety man, Ort-
mann was still used in that posi-
tion in the first half of the Indiana
game.
3.-Bradford, who until the Il-
linois game was earmarked as a
fifth-string half-back stepped in
and carried out the famous Michi-
gan reverses in a style reminiscent
of Bump Elliot. New and talented
players are not stumbled upon or
discovered because of injuries; they
are found, developed and given a
chance in actual game conditions,
not on the south side of the bench.
4.-Pickard, who in his appear-
ances in the first few games, prov-
ed himself to be an above-average
pass receiver and who has been
dropped since then for some ob-
scure reason, was warming the
bench last season while most of
the spectators, probably including
Mr. Bloom and his sophisticated

majority of people are stupid and MS. degree. They are also inter-

unsound second guessers.
There is no question that Michi-
gan should have shown better than
they have this season. Why haven't
they? Many reasons. Some are ap-,
parent, others are in the deep un-
known.
We know that we lacked depth
this year and we sure found out.
The coaches also knew that the
offensive line lacked speed. Those
are the two great weaknesses to
overcome when you are confronted
with the problem of beating teams
that are in the top ten of the na-
tion like Army, Ohio State, Illinois
and Michigan State. The coaches
decided long ago on Putich for
quarterback.
One of the biggest weaknesses
in Michigan's coaching policies for
years has been the unwillingness
to give the reserves a real chance
to play. Even with Crisler's pla-
toon system we had less players
in ball games than the opposition.
Now many people know that John-
ny Greene, who made the all Pro
football team several times with
the Lions, saw only limited action
here at Michigan as a tackle? He
was a great pass catcher with the
Lions.
How many people know that
with the score 49-0 and one minute
to play in the Rose Bowl, J. T.
White and Dan Dworsky were still
in the game backing up the line?
Bradford, a bright new star, is
only a reflection for this coaching
weakness. How many people know
that the coaching staff had to be
persuaded to invite Bradford out
for fall practice'
Michigan's football system will
continue to deteriorate because the
word has gotten around to many,
high coaches that the players do
not get a fair share under our
ultra conservative "bring 'em up
slow" policy.

the next two games, I'll still nomi-

ject. Its report on "Juvenile De-
linquency" is an informative sym-
posium.
As to the first question posed by
the Kefauver Committee, Director
J. Edgar Hoover of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation answers
that there has been a leveling-off
of juvenile offenses in the post-
war period (1945-49) "although
the incidence of crime among
young people is still abnormally
high." It is nevertheless well to
keep in mind the word of qualifi-
cation offered by Superintendent
Harvey L. Long of the Parole Di-
vision of the Illinois Department
of Public Welfare that statistics
do not always reflect the "actual
crime rate," since they are affected
by local policy in making arrests
and in reporting them.
The committee files the briefs
of the comic book publishers and
the answers sixty-five officials and
eight child guidance experts gave
to its questions. The views of the
consultants sum up to the majority
opinion that there is no direct con-
nection between the comic books
dealing with crime and juvenile
delinquency.
