SL'S ANTI-BIAS, HONETSL

Daring, Surprise Decision Made
By ARDY VARK
Special to The Daily
ALTO, Mich.--The Student Legature, by a convincing 19-21 count, early this morning
aligned itself with the forces of anti-discrimination.
In a boldly controversial move, the Ligature passed a resolution, which reads: "The
Student Ligature is against discrimination." The measure was introduced by SL president
L'm Pillbox, '49er, who cast the decisive votes.
The meeting, which was held in the vacated dining room of Alto High School under
9SIL' new "tour-the-country" po-< * * **
icy, was sparked by 29 seconds of
heated debate before members r
taok the long-heralded step which,
in effect, puts SL in opposition to
dscriminatory practices.

HOWEVER, Pillbox emphasized
tkat SL is not committed to ac-
tively oppose any specific instances
of discrimination.
Although only seven legislators
were physically able to make the
trip to Alto, a special "out-of-
town" quorum, established last
week by the National Student Ac-.
tivity, was attainei.
The new ruling, called OOT
by parliamentarians, requires
te presiding officer to throw
the dice at the beginning of a
meeting outside a college com-
'unity. The quorum is auto-
matically set by the results of
the seventh roll.
Vfeanwhile, in Rochester. Mich.,
temhers of the Supreme Court of
Males, contacted at an abandoned
house five miles outside the me-
tropolis, said they would look into
charges of alleged irregularities in
the SL action.
Josephine Meringue, '69, who
a ompanied one of the SCM
members to the University-sanc-
tioned gathering, said her date

SL MEETS IN ALTO'S PUBLIC THRONE ROOM

r a unable to intelligibly comment j

at present but he was planning to
investigate the situation when the
get-together terminated 72 hours
later. However she did say, "I
kn w Jimmie don't give a hoot
about OOT."
SEVERAL SL members dis-
agreed with the final tabulation,
of votes inasmuch as they weren't
present. Pillbox said Secretary
Robbin Bobbin, 'Ibid, recorded all
40 of the votes because of the im-
portance of the action.
Miss Bobbin chirped, "Knowing
all the fellas and gals as I do, I'm
sure they would have voted that
way."
However, a wire from the Lan-
sing offices of former SLegis-
lator Tom Peeping, 'OOL, indi-
eating the 19-21 vote meant the
motion had not passed. Peeping
eited 14 dissenting opinions of
the New York State Narcotics
Commission during the early
New Deal period which he said
sulported his view.
On the other hand, Pillbox said,
As, interpret parliamentary pro-
edure, in a tie vote the president
etermines the outcome." Inform-
d had already voted five times
d there was no tie, Pillbox said,
'A new organization is bound to
Im some mistakes."
IN HIS speech from the throne
efote final passage, Pillbox said,
'As your president, I find myself
orally obligated not to commit
mysblf on this issue in any man-
ner, shape, color or form. How-
ver, I consider it my constitu-
ional duty to point out certain
onsequences of your votes."
Winking surreptitiously toward
he oyal Court of Regents seated
the rear of the room wearing
'Pigt Discrimination" signs, Pill-
x continued, "I don't want to
fluence your vote, but, as on any
estion, there is only one correct
ay to cast it."
As the 30-piece marching band
f 'the NSA Anti - Prejudice
ague launched into "You've
otta Accentuate the Positive,"
illiox sat back triumphantly.
Daily reporter Merwin Dung was
ro n out of the meeting when
insisted there was a typograph-
al error in the resolution.
