students known to have attended the McPhaul dinner March 6 at the

'The charges were made by a special faculty-student investigation
committee named by President Hatcher.

THE BY-LAW allegedly violated states: No permission for the
use of University property for meetings or lectures shall be granted
to any student organization not recognized by University authorities,
nor shall such permission be granted to any individual student.
The students were charged as individuals, not as representa-
tives of a group. Their cases will be considered separately, with

There were predictions that suc

But with the eastern boom
for Harriman scarcely under
way, Senator Paul Douglas
(D-Ill), a top midwest Demo-
cratic leader who has., some-
times differed sharply with the
Truman Administration, threw
his unqualified support to Sena-
tor Kefauver.
Terming Kefauver "the best
available candidate of our party,"
Douglas told a news conference
in Washington: "He is the one
Southerner we Northerners can
go for."
OTHER Presidential possibili-

who has yet to declare himself
with regard to being a candidate.

Joint Judiciary began hearings
on the charges yesterday. Nine

AFTER completing the 'ques-

decide on what disciplinary action
should be taken, if any, and make
recommendations accordingly to
the University sub-committee on

remained a possible penalty for
some of those involved.
Indications were that the Ju-
diciary hoped to make a decision
as early as tomorrow. However,
it is not known whether it will
be made public then-or at all.
Results of the original probe,
124 single - spaced typewritten

About 250 men are involved in

Lagay said "this must be tied

Steel Owners
To Meet Today
of Commerce Sawyer last night
summoned the private owners of
the seized steel industry to come
to his office this morning-per-
haps to tell them how much the
government will boost worker
Sawyer, government boss of the
seized industry, said he would
meet later today with CIO presi-
dent Philip Murray. Murray said
yesterday he expects the govern-
ment to "impose" the full amount
of the Wage Stabilization Board
(WSB) recommendations.
MURRAY told a national press
club luncheon he would take noth-
ing less than the 26-cents-an-hour
recommended by the WSB. He
indicated, however, there would
be no strike by the CIO Steel-
workers if the government gave
him less.
President Truman, the target
of continuing bitter attacks on
his seizure of the mills, told a
news conference that he, and
not Sawyer, would have the
final word on the amount of a

Governor Williams also prom-
ised yesterday to sign the Republi-
can Legislature's bill moving the
1952 primary election from Sept.
9 to Aug. 5.
!Williams said he regretted the
Legislature's decision to hold the
primary so early, but that he
wanted servicemen to have a
chance to cast their ballots in
the November election. The early
primary is to provide more time
for the shipment of ballots..

IN ADDITION Williams signed
legislation to increase the maxi-
mum penalties from four to 10
years imprisonment and from
$2,000 to $10,000 fine for licensed
narcotics dealers who violate nar-
cotics laws.
Meanwhile, Republican spokes-
men snarled back at .Governor
Williams yesterday in defense of
the GOP legislative tax program.
Williams had criticized the Re-
publican - dominated Legislature
for adopting what he termed "a
fraudulent tax program."
Senator George N. Higgins (R-
Ferndale), Taxation Committee
Chairman, offered to debate the
tax program with the Governor.
"If he would," said Higgins, "the
people would soon find out that in
tax matters he can't add two and
two and get four."

Conference Discusses
Survey Courses at 'U'
Prof. Marvin Felheim, of the English department, capped a lively
discussion at the Literary College Conference last night when he asked
if a suggested general education program "could be successfully passed
by students at Michigan."
Coming at the close of the meeting, the question threw a new light
on the theme of the meeting held at the League. Up to then general
discussion centered about a student appeal for the adoption of "survey.
courses" which would cross departmental lines and provide students
with an insight into work carried
on in other fields.
Press Seizure
PROF. FELHEIM cited a gen-
eral lack of student interest in

The schedule, planned with
compact preciseness, was almost

But despite the discrepancy,
