Officials OK
$15 Blanket'
Fee Boost
Cut Forces Hike
A fourth post-war tuition in-
crease will hit the campus next
September, University officials in-
formed a group of student leaders
at a special conference yesterday.
Undergraduates and graduates
in non-professional schools will
face a blanket $15 per semester
hike, with increases ranging from
$5 to $75 in other schools.
THIS WILL MEAN for the bulk
of the student body an accumu-
lated boost since the war of $60
yearly in in-state tuition, and
$190 in out-state fees..
Vice-President Marvin L. Nie-
huss explained that the new tui-
tion - schedule, approved by the
Board of Regents last Friday,
was made necessary by the
$1,600,000 slash in the Univer-
sity operating budget by the
State Legislature.
"The tuition raise is the only
way to* avoid a deficit without
lowering our standards," Niehuss.
pointed out.
AFTER IT became apparent
that the Legislature was going to
cut the budget, University offi-
cials undertook a thorough review
of the operating budget, arriving
at a figure of $22,200,000 as a
rock-bottom total, Niehuss report-
Prospective income from the
appropriation, student fees, and
miscellaneous sources fell $570,-
000 "short of that figure.
"It is expected that the higher
tuition will cover this deficit,"
Niehuss said.

IFC Reaffirms Acacia
Anti-Bias Clause Plan.
By an emphatic 26 to 6 vote, the Interfraternity Council House
Presidents Assembly last night went on record for re-affirmation and
further implementation of the Acacia anti-bias clause plan.
Last December the IFC passed the Acacia Plan over the stronger
recommendation of the joint Student Legislature-IFC committee
which had studied fraternity discrimination on campus.
. * * *
THE ACACIA PLAN as then passed stated that IFC is "strongly
in favor of having its members take action for removal of discrim-
inatory clauses," but favored educational rather than "coercive"

Public Health .$125

the Schools of Medicine and Den-
tistry, with hikes of $130 and $150
respectively in yearly fees.

MICHIGAN remains first among
the Midwestern state universities
in tuition fees. However, Vice-
President Wilbur K. Pierpont as-
serted that this has always been
the relative tuition situation, and
" that it is justified by a higher
caliber of educational program.
Several other Big Ten Univer-
sities are contemplating similar

Last night's action came through
a motion of Acacia which blasted
the IFC Executive Council for not
completely fulfilling its responsi-
bilities in carrying out the broad
powers of the original plan.
THEREFORE they recommend-
ed that:
1) IFC "unreservedly reaffirm
the Acacia plan as its policy basis,"
2) IFC officers be charged with
responsibility to carry it out.
3) Houses with clauses co-
operate in "good faith" with the
IFC in carrying out the pro-

sume leadership in the actual work
of implementing the plan.
5) The Human Relations com-

In addition Acacia asked the
IFC for help in removing the
clause in its national constitution
which members said, "in effect
prohibits adherents of certain
creeds for membership."

Logic on Issue
A proposed Joint Judiciary con-
stitutional revision was discussed
in a report to the Student Leg-

A VOTE was taken at the SAC
meeting to withhold announce-

suggested alterations of the plan
had met with the approval of

concerned the interviewing and
appointive board for new mem-

diciary Council, which would re-

the hands of its.student members.
Willens felt that such powers fell
logically within the realm of the
legislature, and said that a com-
bined League-SL appointive body
suggested by the judiciary and
voted down at the SAC meeting
would be "more than agreeable"
to the legislature.
The SAC is scheduled to meet
Tuesday for further consideration
of the judiciary issue.
Also at last night's meeting,I
the Legislature appointed a com-
mittee to investigate the Mc-
Phaul dinner hearings and de-
termine whether any violation
of student rights has occurred.
Ted Friedman, '54, who insti-
gated the motion, stressed that
the committee will make no at-
tempt to pass on the guilt of the
students being investigated but
will confine itself to the tactics
used in conducting the hearings.
The Culture and Education
Committee, headed by Jean Jones,
'53, will conduct the investigation.
The group also confirmed cabi-
net appointments which will be
effective until fall elections. Head-
ing the Campus Action Commit-

A U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals 5 to 4 decision in Washington
put the Government in the steel business again. The court made its
stay indefinite. The decision which did not deal with the legality of
the seizure will remain in effect until the Supreme Court acts upon
an appeal in the case. Should the high court refuse to review the
decision, the seizure could continue effective until the appeals court
issues a further order.
But the Government must file its appeal to the Supreme Court
by 2:30 p.m. tomorrow, to keep its seizure effective.

Oil Workers'
Walkout Hits'
Entire Nationl
DENVER-P-An often-post-
poned strike of oil workers swept
across the nation yesterday. It
closed some refineries, curtailed
pipeline operations and started
motorists lining up for gasoline.
Nearly 90,000 men-about half
those who run the pipelines, re--
fineries and distribution plants-
walked out as facilities werb closed
down in orderly fashion.
CIO, AFL and independent un-
ions worked together. Socony-
Vacuum's East St. Louis Refinery
was shut down when CIO and AFL
members walked-out together, even
though they're tangled in their
own jurisdictional dispute there.
Union officials estimate 44
percent of the nation's daily re-
finery capacity-2,850,000 of the
6,500,000 barrels-is affected by
the strike. The cut could go
deeper as the movement of crude
oil is reduced by pipeline strikes.
There were no reports that the
Federal government, which tried
three times without success to

another try.
