SL Passes New,
Anti-Bias Motion
Measure Would Grant Exceptions
To 6 Year Time Limit on Clauses
The Student Legislature provided a loophole to its Nov. 15 fra-
ternity anti-discriminatory clause motion in a confused and heated
meeting last night.
The original motion required in effect that University recogni-
tion of all fraternities be withdrawn whose constitutions contained
discriminatory clauses after an Oct. 15, 1956, deadline.
* s * *
THE NEW MOTION, which for the most part clarified the re-
tequirements of the old one, added the provision that a fraternity
might receive an extension of the time limit if it could prove that it
pad done everything in its power to get its discriminatory clauses

-removed from its national con-
stitution and that there was a
"substantial probability" that the
clause would be removed in the
near future.
The time extensions, if grant-
ed, would be for a year at a
time. The clarified motion, which
supplants the original one, was
passed as a recomendation to
the Student Affairs Committee.
It is not binding in itself, and
will become effective only if the
SAC approves and adopts it as
a plan of action. The vote on
the motion was 35 to 2 with 8
t abstentions.
f Besides establishing the Oct. 15,
_ 1956, deadline and the possible ex-
tension provision, the clarified
y motion contains the following sti-
FIRST, that all fraternities with
discriminatory clauses in their
constitutions are required to pre-
sent a motion on the floor of their
national conventions asking the
f removal of such clauses and that
they support and vote positively
on the motion.
Also, such fraternities would
have to report to the Student
Affairs Committee each year on
the action taken at their last
convention. If they have not
acted as required by the forego-
ing national convention stipula-
tion, the fraternities would be
"forthwith" denied recognition.
Further, if by Oct. 15, 1956, the
fraternities still had the clauses,
their University ,recognltion would
be withdrawn until the clauses
were removed.
APPARENTLY the SL is not
finished with its consideration of
the fraternity discrimination is-
sue, however, because immediately
following the vote, Jim Moran,
'52, served notice that he would
present a proposal in the next
SL meeting to rescind the motion
which passed last night.
Earlier in the evening,- Len
Wilcox, '52, SL vice-president,
had presented a substitute to
the clarification motion which
would have eliminqted the Oct.
15, 1956, deadline for the bias
clause removal.
1 It was this proposal which drew
most of the attention. Supporters
argued that by removing the time
limit, the danger of forcing fra-
ternities to take hasty action in
their national conventions and
simply transfering the clauses into
either their rituals or into obscure
"gentlemen's agreements" would
be eliminated.
* * *
ALTHOUGH 24 Student Legis-
lators voted for the motion and
only 20 opposed (with one absten
tion), thb substitute was not pass-
ed. As a substitute for a previous-
ly passed motion, it would have
rescinded the former proposal and
such action requires a majority of
the entire body. Such a majority
in the SL is 25.

Victory Goes
To Williams
In Recount
GOP Surrenders
As Lead Grows
DETROIT -(P)--- Former Re-
publican Gov. Harry F. Kelly, the
apparent winner for three days
after Michigan's Nov. 7 governor-
ship election, finally conceded re-
election last night to Democratic
Gov. G. Mennen Williams.
Kelly tossed in the sponge after
twelve days of a recount during
whih weary workers had recheck-
ed more than three-fourths of the
nearly 1,900,000 votes cast.
FOR THREE solid days after
the election the two-time wartime
governor had led Williams by mar-
gins up to more than 4,000 votes.
Williams, however, pulled into
a 1,154-vote lead after the offi-
cial canvass.
Ballots in 3,408 of Michigan's
4,355 precincts had been recounted
when the end came. Williams had
picked up 3,089 additional votes
by that time, bringing his total
margin to 4,243.
These were the totals:
Williams (D) 934,096
Kelly (R) 929,853
The Democratic margin will go
down in history, however, as the
original 1,154 votes-the leanest
plurality in a governorship race
since 1837.
The recount, though not com-
pleted, cost the Republicans $21,-
775-$5 a precinct. Besides victory
for Williams, it brought out num-
erous flaws in Michigan's election
Actually, neither candidate
gained a net vote b4t the recount.
It was a case of Kelly losing more.
He dropped 4,318 while picking up
only 173 while Williams lost 1,907
and gained 851.

U.S. To Cut
Flowvof Aid

By The Associated Press
Virtually all Marshall Plan aid
to Great Britain will be suspended
after Jan. 1, British and American
officials revealed in a joint state-
ment yesterday.
In a cautiously worded an-
nouncement, the two countries said
the suspension comes as a result
of a marked ia. Iment in Bri-
tain's economic health.
The flow of Marshall Plan dol-
lars may be resumed later if Bri-
tain's condition worsens, it was
AT THE same time, top Ameri-
can officiafs stressed that the
United States would continue to
give Britain dollars to spur her
new rearmament program.
The apparent switch to an em-
phasis on defense was interpreted
by several University economists
as being less significant than it
might appear.
Prof. Charles F. Remen and Prof.
Wolfgang F. Stolper, both of the
economics department, agreed that
the United States will still be able
to bolster Britain's economic
health through defense aid.
Neither was surprised at yes-
terday's action, which came after
nearly six weeks of friendly talks
in London over the need for con-
tinued dollar help.

where the Haven fire started.

MISS STRAUSS said she had
just left her Haven Hall office on
the day of the fire when she smell-
ed smpke. Upon investigating, she
saw flames, leaping along the wall
of Rm. G.
Shesaid she saw someone walk-,
walking down the hall and
shouted to him, "There really is
a fire!" According to her testi-
mony, the man did not turn
around or stop walking, but she
thought he "resembled" Stacy.
But Miss Strauss admitted on
cross examination by Stacy's law-
yer Leonard H. Young, that she
could not make a positive identi-
fication. Her testimony was fre-
quently interrupted by wrangles
between Young and Prosecutor
Douglas K. Reading.
* * *
Fire Chief Harold E. Gauss, said
he saw Stacy on the first floor of
Haven Hall 11 months earlier
wheni he was called to investigate
another fire.
. Two Janitors, Joseph G. Smith
and Julius Schiller, testified they
had extinguished three separate
fires in trash cans and waste-
paper baskets shortly before the
first started.
In order for the prosecution to
establish that Stacy "willfully and,
maliciously" set fire to Haven Hall,
it was necessary to prove that
there was a loss of property and
that lives were endangered by Sta-
cy's alleged action. To support this
legal point, Reading called Walter
M. Roth, Superintendent of the
University Plant Service, to the
Roth estimated that it would
cost 1.5 million dollars to build
a structure the same size as the
fire-gutted building. He further
testified that,-on the day of the
fire, there were University stu-
dents taking final examinations in
Haven Hall.
Zelda Clarkson, Stacy's former
girl friend, is expected to testify
at this morning's hearing.
