Council To Hear
Violations First
aculty Disciplinary Sub-Comonittee
Reserves Right To Review Cases
Daily Managing Editor
A far-reaching procedural change granting students a much
greater voice in the handling of student disciplinary problems was
announced at last night's Student Legislature meeting by John Ryder,
retiring president of the Men's Judiciary Council.
Under the new plan, which has been operating on an experi-
mental basis since last December, all disciplinary cases involving
students will first be heard by the student Joint-Judiciary Council
and later reviewed by the faculty Sub-Committee on Discipline.
This marks a significant change from the old procedure under
which all important violations of student conduct regulations were
heard only by the Disciplinary Sub-Committee, which is composed
of three members of the University faculties.
STEMMING from vigorous protests by a host of campus leaders
that students were not being given enough responsibility in the
handling of student disciplinary matters, the new procedure is an
outgrowth of a report submitted by a special sub-committee of the
Student Affairs Committee more than a year and a half ago.
The SAC sub-committee, which was set up to study "juris-
dictional problems," cited the lack of responsibility given students
in the administration of disciplinary matters as one of the most
glaring weaknesses in the strycture of student government on
To correct this situation the SAC sub-committee recommended
that all disciplinary cases involving students be referred to the
student Joint-Judiciary Council, subject to later review by the Sub-
Committee on Discipline.
* * * *
OBTAINING the whole-hearted support of the Disciplinary Com-
mittee members early last fall, the Student Affairs Committee adopted
the recommended procedure on an experimental basis on December
12 and later received official approval of the plan from President
Alexander G. Ruthven.
Since that time 36 individual cases and four group cases
have been referred to the Joint-Judiciary Council, which has
quietly been conducting weekly hearings for the past five months.
All disciplinary cases are referred to the Joint Judiciary by the
Offices of the Dean of Students and the Dean of Women and a
thorough and fair hearing of each case is conducted by the Council.
THE JUDICIARY'S recommended penalties, along with a com-
Pete transcript of the hearing, is then submitted to the Disciplinary
l C mmittee for review.
The penalties recommended by the Council during the past
five months, ranging from restrictions on social privileges to the
$300 Phi Gamma Delta fine, have all been accepted by the Disci-
plinary Committee.
All students are permitted td appeal the findings of the Joint
Judiciary and three such appeals have been filed. In all three in-
stances, however, the Disciplinary Committee upheld the recom-
mendations of the Joint-Judiciary.
When the ,procedure was originally adopted last December
the SAC members felt that it should be proven under fire before
being announced publicly.
The plan has been so successful, however, that President Ruthven
has indefinitely extended the procedure and Ryder was permitted to
take it out from under wraps for the first time at last night's SL
* * * *
PRAISING the manner in which the Joint Judiciary has con-
ducted its hearings, Dean of Students Erich A. Walter said, "I am
iroud of the work which our Joint-Judiciary Council has done.
"Their ability to handle difficult disciplinary cases is a sig-
nificant step ahead in greater student participation in the extra-
curricular life of the University.
"This new system of having students charged and punished by
their peers is one which I hope will continue indefinitely."
* * * *
ASSOCIATE DEAN of Students Walter B. Rea, who has sat in
on many of the Joint-Judiciary's hearings as an observer, noted
'particularly the "mature and intelligent" manner in which the hear-
ings have been conducted.
"The Judiciary members have made a thorough investigation;
of every case and their recommendations have reflected a mature
judgement and genuine fair-mindedness," Rea said.
Ryder, who has skillfully guided the Joint-Judiciary through the
recent experimental period, also praised the new proc'edure, terming
it "an extremely significant step forward in student self-government."
He cited the "extremely fine cooperation" his Council has received

from the Disciplinary Committee in setting up the new procedure.
"The Disciplinary Committee members have been very helpful to
us and have made no attempt to bind us with their opinions," Ryder

WASHINGTON -(- The in-
quiry into Gen. Douglas MacAr-
thur's ouster exploded yesterday
into a bitter wrangle among Sena-
tors over their power to force Geri.
Omar N. Bradley to tell what was
said at a meeting with President
Truman last April 6.
The White House talk was about
firing the Far East commander.
The dispute brought angry talk
that the White House may be
"pulling an iron curtain" down
on the testimony - and counter
charges that the Republicans may
be "trying to sabotage" the Asia
policy inquiry because they don't
like the way the testimony is go-

Chairman Russell (D-Ga.),
the inquiry chairman, said the
question will be: "whether or
not a Congressional committee

viser of the President of the
United States to disclose the

with the President on a confi-

This issue arose yesterday when

Dorm Survey
To Start Today
The Dorm Survey Committee

residence hall survey question-

"The questionnaire asks for the
student's evaluation of what we
all felt were the most pressing
problems," Dave Guttentag, chair-
man, said.
It was composed with the aid
of Kermit K. Schooler, assistant
study director of the University
Survey Research Center.
The queries concerning the
students' evaluation of the quan-
tity and preparation of food, the
quality of services received, the
facilities and the staff of the
residence halls.
As soon as the questionnaires

In passing the legislation, the

Congress last February to send

India as an outright gift.
