ing the 1956 time limit, would de-
ny University recognition imme-
diately _to any organization aff ili-
ated with a national body which
does not petition for removal of
discriminatory clauses at its an-
nual convention.
This summer the Legislature
published a booklet on its work in
this field, which it is presenting
to delegates to the NSA confer-
ence, being held from August 20
to 29. at the University of Minne-

sota. It will be sold on campus in
the fall.
The problem of potentially
discriminatory questions on Uni-
versity application blanks has
also been tackled, with consider-
able success, by the Legislature.
SL set up a sub-committee on
discrimination to study the sub-
ject last year as a result of con-
tinuous agitation by the Commit-
tee to End Discrimination, an in-
dependent campus organization,
to have the questions removed.

In January, SL brought the sub-
ject to the atteniton of the Deans'
Conference, which recommended
removal of all such questions from
University blanks. Frank E. Rob-
bins, assistant to the president,
announced that the recommenda-
tion would be adopted as general
University policy.
By June, every school at the
University except the medical
school had removed some or all
potentially discriminatory ques-
tions from its application blanks.

THE PERENNIAL student cry
for a vacation the Friday and Sat-
urday morning after Thanksgiving
has also been taken up by the
Legislature. Though it has not
been successful so far, it plans to
renew its efforts to give students
an official Thanksgiving holiday
weekend in the fall.
A sub-committee on University
paternalism, set up by the Legis-
lature last semester, has been ga-
thering information about policies
of other universities regarding

academic freedom, so that SL will
have data to work with next se-
mester. It also is studying the Re-
gents' bylaws, and the governing
structures of the Union, the Lea-
gue, the residence halls, the Inter-
national Center, and the Alumni
Association.
Besides its role as a decision-
maker on important student
questions, SL performs a variety
of service functions through its
committees.
The Cultural and Educational

Committee publishes an annual operation with various student or-
alendar of events, which lets the ganizations. Last year SL co-spon-
student know at a glance the ma- sored such films as "The Bicycle
jor campus events. It will be dis- Thief" and "Blue Angel."

Other services offered by the
Legislature include the Better

for illegal sales and solicitors on
campus; the Student Experts, who
guide incoming freshmen through
the maze of interesting-looking
subjects; and the Rent Subcom-
mittee, which protects students
against unfair rents in indepen-
