The motion was passed with the
stipulation that the blood donor

blood bank or the war effort.

cooperation of the students. We
are sure that it will help the war
drive," President Len Wilcox, '52,
said.
Kefauver Club

M~'eetingToday
Haul out those coon-skin caps
-a Kefauver for President club
is now operating on campus. j
A recent addition to the league
of campus Presidential clubs, the
Kefauver-suppor-ting group will
hold their organizational meeting
at 4:15 p.m. today in the Union.
PRF. PRESTON Slosson of the
history department will be the
faculty adviser for the club. SBos-
son praised Kefauver as possess-
ing the best qualifications of any
avowed candidate now in the Pres-
idential nomination race.
"I am impressed by his progres-
sive record on domestic policies
and by his interest in the develop-
ment of the Atlantic Union on the
international front," Slosson ex-

plained.
Joe White, chief organizer of the
Kefauver club urged student sup-
port of the new group. White
seemed confident that Kefauver'

Committee
Revises AIM
Constitution,
A Constitutional Revision Com-
mittee, appointed over a week ago
by the Association of Independent
Men, reported yesterday they had
agreed upon a new constitution.
The major proposed changes are
the following: house presidents
will no longer be allowed on the
AIM council; voting will be done
by an elected representative from!
each house with several members
at large from the quadrangles;
outside independents will not be
represented and the independents'
representative to the Board of
Governors will be elected by the
council.
S * -
IN AN ATTEMPT to dispell ru-
mors that AIM was falling apart,
Bert Braun,.'54, committee chair.
man, said that the group is con-
fident that AIM has a purpose.
"We feel that AIM has the
function of relating independent
problems to campus problems,
something which quad organi-
zations cannot do because they
are too concerned with internal
questions, to the detriment of
external ones," Braun said.
To reduce the council's member-
ship and streamline the organiza-
tion, house presidents willno long-
er be voting members "because
they are usually too bu y to give
time to AIM," according to Braun.
To replace them, there will be
members at large elected from each
quad.
* * *
ANOTHER new feature is a
qualification that a man must be
a sophomore before he can be
elected.
Before the revised constitution
can go into effect, it must be ap-
proved by the AIM Council Mon-
day night, be ratified by two-thirds
of the houses in the men's dormi-
tory system and pass the Student
Affairs Committee.
Officers in dormitory govern-
ment, who were rumored to be
planning to set up some sort of
inter-quad organization, were not
available for comment.

reminds the Regents and the com-
4mittee that the fundamental pur-
pose of the Universiy is the free
discussion and expression of ideas
and that the level of maturity, in-
telligence and good sense of the
student body requires that the
existing Regents By-Law be inter-
preted as liberally as possible con-
sonant with state law."
The Regents By-Law referred
to says "no addresses shall be al-
lowed which urge the destrixe-
tion or modification of govern-
ment by violence or other un-
lawful methods."
There vas practically no dis-
cussion on the issue and t passed
with no objections. Two legislators
abstained.
THE MOTION also asked that
SL "continue its full support of
the Nptonal Students' Association
Bill C Rights in "striing to
aclpienon this ca-.Ypus freedom
for stc ents to hear speakers of
their own choice on subjects of
their choice."
In making his motion, Wilcox
said, "The national security can
be as seriously threatened from
within as from without our na-
tion,
"The University must recognize
its particularly vital role in care-
fully weighing the considerations
involved in. freedom of speech and
discussior to insure the main-
tenance of our free educational
ccmmunity."

EARLIER in the evening, the
legislature finally passed the long
pending motion to establish female
participation on the Board in Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics.
The completed bill, proposed
by Mike McNerney, '52, requests
the Regents to change their cur-
rent By-Law so that the two
student members come from the
campus at large and be voted on
by the entire electorate.
Only men are curerntly allowed
to run and vote for the positions.
The bill also asks that all candi-
dates be nominated strictly by the
petition method. At present the
athletic managers can nominate
men.
In other action, the legislature
okaved two referendums for sub-
mission to the all-campus elec-
tions April 1 and 2. One referen-
dum will ask student opinion on a
co-educational student union su-
perceding the current, Union and
League structure.
The other asks opinion on a
University sponsored non-profit
bookstore, handling new and used
books and supplies.

Loyalty Rish
Given Help
By Acheson
WASHNGTON--(P)-Secretary
of State Acheson acknowledged
yesterday that he personally clear-
ed O. Edmund Clubb after a loy-
alty-security board found Clubb a
security risk.
Acheson's action permitted the
veteran foreign service official-
who otherwise could have been
fired-to retire on a $5,800-a-year-
pension. The Secretary of State
said, however, that his decision
had nothing to do with Clubb's re-
tirement..
CHAIRMAN McCarran (D-Nev.
of the House Judiciary Committee
promptly demanded that Congress
reverse the Secretary of State "by
cutting off the pension."
Senator Ferguson (R-Mich.), a
member of McCarran's Internal
Security Subcommittee, demanded
to know how many State Depart-
ment officials have been allowed to
retire on pensions while under in-
vestigation.
Acheson brought up the Clubb
matter ;himself at a news confer-
ence today, saying:
"I am responsible for the ulti-
mate judgment, which was that
Ciubb was not a security risk."
"U' Women Feel
Impact of Red
Investigations
By MARGE SHEPHERD'
Current investigations of alleg-
ed Communist activities being con-
ducted throughout the nation have
hit home for two University wom-
en whose fathers face deportation
under the McCarren Act.
"Because my father took ad-
vantage of his constitutional right
to freedom of speech at a meeting
in the 1930's he has been plagued;
for more than 16 years by a series
of charges aimed at securing his
deportation," one student claimed.
She requested to remain anony-
mous because of antagonistic feel-
ings which have already been evi-
dent among her fellow students.
Explaining the situation which
originated the immigration de-
partment charge, she said that
her father had been an active par-
ticipant in a mine labor union in
which there were several known
Communist members.

ON ONE occasion several union
members reported to immigration
officials that her father had en-
tered the country illegally.
He was unable to deny the
charge because he could not,

RELIGIOUS ILLITERATES:
Canon Bell Attacks Lack
Of Religion in Schools
By HELENE SIMON
"The average student comes to college with a vague conglommera-
tion of ideas in their own religion and ignorance of all other religions,"
Canon Bernard Iddings Bell asserted last night.
Speaking for the Religion in Life Series yesterday at Rackham
Auditorium, the outspoken clergyman attacked the lack o religion in
the nation's schools resulting in a society of "religious illiterates."
"EVERY EDUCATIONAL institution should have a Coordinator of
Religious Instruction to see that the integration between religion and

* * *

i
f
i
i
i

*other intellectual discipline are
recognized in the curriculum," the
noted author and lecturer sug-
gested.
But in order to have some re-
.ligious knowledge to integrate, he
pointed out, every student should
be required to take a course on re-
ligion in addition to the usual arts
and sciences curricula.
The usual American youth,
who is exemplified in Henry Al-
drich, "has scarcely more than
infantile notions about God and
devotional techniques which
rarely go beyond 'Now I lay me
down to sleep' and 'God bless
daddy and mother'," the critical
Canon charged.
Calling the nation's culture
"learned but lopsided," Dr. Bell in-
sisted that unless modern, man
supplements his factual knowledge
with religion, "the human race
wil continue to grow increasingly
unbalanced, mutually unhappy,
resentful and, therefore, self-de-
structive."
It is the bright, not so young
literati-th,e editors, syndicated
columnists and playwrites, un-
aware that the world has moved
ahead of them-who Canon Bell
considers the obstacles to cooper-
ation between the scientist and the
religionist.
Dr. Bell is Canon of the Episco-
pal Church's Cathedral in Chicago
and representative of the Episco-
pal Church at the University of
Chicago.
