To Disband
Quads Accused
Of Unfair Attacks

Russell Wins

By RUSS AUWERTER
The Association of Independent
Men announced yesterday in a no-
tarized document that they will
no longer continue to operate, giv-
ing as reason lack of interest and
unfair attacks by quad govern-
ment.

Provides for More Representative,
Centralized 'U' Judiciary System
By CRAWFORD YOUNG
The Student Affairs Committee unanimously accepted the new
Joint Judiciary Council constitution yesterday, providing a more re-
presentative and centralized student judiciary system.
* * * *
THE REVAMPED constitution will be submitted to the Board of
Regents for approval, probably at their next meeting May 22. Pending
final action by the Regents, however, the new constitution will be
in effect.

THE SIX PAGE paper, sent to
residence directors, men and wom-
en's deans, and President Hatcher,
gave a detailed description of the
reasons for the long expected fold
up.

t

Claims made by AIM were:
1. Quad governments had kept
up a sustained attack on AIM say-
ing it was "in the way" and made
a motion recommending that each
house in the quad reject AIM's
proposed constitution revision.
2. Quad governments falsely ac-
cused AIM of small committee
powerblocking and "dictatorship"
tactics with the purpose of casting
suspicion of AIM.
3. Quad Council attempted to
pack an AIM meeting; moving to
disband the group, and transfer
all funds and office equipment to
the Quad Council.
4. A quad resident director re-
fused to listen to an AIM officer
who went to him with complaints
of unfair -quad practices.
5. Berton Braun AIM vice pres-'
ident was refused recognition by
the chair of a west quad council
meeting when he attempted to
make known AIM policies.
6. The AIM had been made to
feel for the last few years that it
was a thorn in the side of 'the
University administration.
The paper also said the chief
function of the AIM has been
that of a service organization.
It was a co-sponsor of the A-
Hop, initiated and maintained
the "Little Club" and sold sports
equipment.
It was also stated that the few
remaining members would inde-
pendently continue to sponsor
"The Little Club" as a public ser-
vice to the campus under the
name of AIM.
The Association of Independent
Men was founded in 1946 in an-
swer to the need voiced by re-
turning veterans.
dependent men will be one that
adopts the campus-wide viewpoint
professed by AIM."
* * *
AIM WAS AT THE height of its
popularity and prestige in 1950
but since then, due to gradually
increasing competition presented
by quad government, has continu-
ally declined.
The AIM document met with
mixed student reaction yester-
day with the quad councils put-
ting up the strongest rebuff.
West Quad Council president
Ted Bohuszewicz considered the
paper to be a somewhat humorous
collection of charges saying "We
were waiting for and expecting
AIM to fall, but we certainly didn't
pull any fast ones."
He also said that members of
the West Quad Council had ex-
amined the AIM proposed consti-
tution and the only purpose of
the organization that they could
find was "taken from the quad
council jurisdiction over the elec-
tion of Board of Governors of Res-
idence Halls representatives."
Asked how the collapse of the
AIM would affect fraternities, IFC
president Pete Thorpe said "There
are too many unknown factors to
judge the situation conclusively.
'Triangles
From 'neath the heals of dusty
feet,
Within the vitals of the Arch,
The great bronze seal called loyal
men
In dead of night to march.
So came the men of Triangles.
Once more beneath the pointed
spires
New faces toiled with fear;
The seal of Triangles again shone
bright
Cleansed with blood and tear.

WSBJ Asks
Oil Workers
To Return
DENVER-()-The Wage Stab-
ilization Board (WSB) yesterday
asked oil workers to return to work
as a nation-wide strike began to
cramp commercial air transport
and was even felt by the U.S. Air
Force in Germany.
* *4 *
THIS IS the seventh day of the
strike by some 90,000 CIO, AFL
and independent unionists over
wage demands. The nation's oil
refining capacity has been reduc-
ed by a third. Military aviation
has been curtailed. The Govern-
ment ordered a 30 per cent cut in
aviation gasoline supplies for
commercial and private flyers.
WSB Chairman Nathan P.
Feinsinger asked for an end to
the strike and renewal of bar-
gaining to settle issues. To both
company and union, messages
also suggested that all parties
meet with the WSB next Tues-
day. Feinsinger requested imme-
diate replies.
The 22 unions called the strike
April 30 in support of demands
for a general wage hike of 25 cents
an hour. They also want an in-
crease to 6 and 12 cents an hour
from 4 to 6 cents in night and
early-morning shifts. Wages now
are $2 to $2.10 an hour.
* * *S
O. A. KNIGHT, of Denver, presi-
dent of the Oil Workers Interna-
tional Union (CIO), in behalf of
the Coordinating Committee of
CIO, AFL and independent unions
involved, wired Feinsinger:
"The coordinating committee
of the oil unions engaged in the
wage dispute with the petroleum
industry agrees to attend the
meeting before the Wage Stabi-
lization Board May 13.
"Yctr request that the parties
'resume work and production im-
mediately' is being considered by
all groups involved and our reply
to this request will follow at the
earliest possible moment.
Aviation was under the greatest
stress from the strike.
Pres. Hatcher
Voted Degree
Pres. Harlan Hatcher will be
awarded an honorary Doctor of
Laws Degree at the baccalaureate
ceremonies of the University of
Cincinnati on June 1.
The board of directors of the
University of Cincinnati voted yes-
terday to confer four honorary de-
grees at the school's 1952 com-
mencement. The others wil go to
Dr. Norman P. Ashburn, new
president of Akron University, Dr.
Winston E. Keck of the Bell Tele-
phone Laboratories and L o i s
Kronenberger, author and drama
critic.

PRINCIPLE stumbling block
to passage of the revised consti-
tution was in finding an acceptable
method of representation on the
interviewing board which will pick
all the members of the new judi-
ciary, which rules on all but ex-
ceptional disciplinary cases in-
volvingstudents.
The SAC, after debating for
two meetings over three al-
ternative proposals, wound up
accepting by a 9-3 vote yester-
day the arrangement originally
proposed by the members of the
present Joint Judiciary Coun-
cil, framers of the document.
This provides for an appointing
board consisting of the president,
vice-president, treasurer and re-
cording secretary of Student Leg-
Petitions for the new Joint
Judiciary Council may be ob-
tained from 3 to 5:30 p.m. at
the Student Legislature Bldg.,
122 S. Forest, or from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. in the Undergraduate
Offices of the League beginning
today, according to John Me-
row, '52E, chairman of the now-
defunct Men's Judiciary Coun-
cil.
Deadline for completed peti-
tions, which should be returned
at the SL Bldg., is 5 p.m. next
Wednesday, he said.
islature, plus the president and
chairman 6f the interviewing
board of the League. In addition,
the chairman and vice-chairman
of the Joint Judiciary Council will
serve in an advisory capacity.
At present, Joint Judiciary is a
composite group containing re-
presentatives from Men's and Wo-
men's Judiciaries. The former
group is picked by the SL cabinet,
the latter by the League interview-
ing board.
UNDER THE reorganization
scheme, Men's Judiciary ceases to
exist, while Women's Judiciary
will continue to handle infractions
of women's house rules, but will
have no direct connection with the
Joint Judiciary.
* The largest obstacle to imme-
diate acceptance last week of the
4-2 SL-League ratio on the ap-
pointing board was strong op-
position from the League to this
scheme.
In a search for a compromise so-
lution, the SAC last Tuesday, af-
ter a heated discussion, agreed on
establishing the student member-
ship of the SAC as the personnel
for appointing judiciary members.

Ridgway Reveals
Details of Talks
TOKYO, Wednesday, May 6--(A)
-Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway dis-
closed today the Communists have
rejected an Allied offer to trade
the 12,000 UN prisoners in their
hands for the 70,000 Allied-held
Reds who have agreed to return to
Communist control.
4. ' *
RIDGWAY ripped the veil of
secrecy from the high level truce
talks at Panmunjom and revealed
the details of the UN command's
overall solution to the deadlocked
armistice negotiations.
In a sharply worded statement
Ridgway said "the responsibility
for peace in Korea now rests on
the Communists."
If the Reds agreed to the UN-
proposed trade of war prisoners,
Ridgway said, after an armistice
the UN would be willing "to
permit any suitable interna-
tional body or joint Red Cross
teams, together with observers
from both sides, to interview the
persons held by the UN com-
mand who have indicated they
would forcibly oppose repatria-
tion."
The Allied Supreme Comman-
der said the UN would then return
to the Reds any prisoners which
an impartial, neutral survey show-
ed were willing to go back.
Ridgway said the Reds have re-
jected this "fair equitable solu-
tion."
On the other two issues block-
ing a truce, Ridgway said the UN
command had offered to drop its
demand for a ban on airfield re-
construction if the Communists
would abandon their nomination
of Russia as a "neutral" nation to
help police the armistice.
Ridgway said both sides agreed
at Tuesday's secret session to re-
lease details of the Allied offer.
s * *i
MEANWHILE the 57,699 Chi-
nese and North Korean soldiers
who have chosen death to Com-
munism were given a half dozen
chances to change their minds.
That was revealed yesterday
by an unimpeachable informant
who for the first time gave the
substance of questions asked at
the recent screening of Allied-
held prisoners in connection
with prisoner exchange. This
is the key issue blocking a truce
in Korea.
He said that the questions ask-
ed of the Red prisoners all were
aimed at convincing as many as
possible that they should go home.
The questions took that approach
because of the Allies' efforts to
lean over backwardseon the pris-
oner exchange issue to achieve a
truce.
Still the Communist prisoners
declared they would commit sui-
cide or make a run for it under
the sharp-shooting guns of bat-
tIe-trained American guards rath-
er than return to the Communist
world.

InimatesdTell
Committee,
More Riot'
JACKSON, Mich.-(P)-Two in-3
mates of Southern Michigan Pris-
on told Gov. Williams' Fact Find-!
ing Committee yesterday that fur-
ther trouble was likely at the
world's largest walled prison.
Ray Young, 23, of Detroit, serv-
ing a five to 15-year sentence for
safe-cracking, said the convict
mutineers were all set to "blow
up" the prison at the riot which
ended April 24. He wouldn't elab-
orate.
But he said the convicts were!
still going to blow up the place-
"I'll stake my life on it."
YOUNG, CLAIMING major cre-,
dit for the riot, said it was plan-I
ned six months ago and "I was the
only one who knew the definite
time when it was to come off."
Young also claimed a prison
official, whom he would not
name, gave him the big heavy
knife which he carried during
the riot. He said the official was
still friendly to those who took
part in the revolt.
Young said the riot actually was
planned to take place on Monday,
April 21. (It started April 20). He
explained a "disciplinary . court"
was scheduled to convene that day.
The youthful convict said the
prisoners were going to try to cap-
ture all members of the disciplin-
ary court, composed of prison of-
ficials. But on Sunday night,
Young went on, the prisoners saw
Thomas Elliott, a rookie guard, in
such a position that they could
capture him easily. They did so
and the riot was on.
Publicity for their alleged
grievances was the only objectivee
of the riot, Young said.t
Asked what would have happen-1
ed to the guard-hostages if police
had stormed cell block 15, YoungE
replied:r
"We'd have killed every copper
(guard) that was up there." The
guards captured as hostages weres
kept on the upper floor of the tier
of cells.
While Young was before the
committee, prison officials con-
ducted another examination of his
cell. They found a section of a
steel rod, about 30 inches long,
which had been twisted from his
bed and sharpened on one end by
scraping it on the floor.

fTaft Seizes
Lead Over.
Eisenhower
Kefauver Trails
By 8000 Votes
By The Associated Press
Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio
pulled ahead of Gen. Dwight D.
Eisenhower in Republican presi-
d e n t i a l nominating delegate
strength yesterday and lead in all
the reported races for convention
spots in his home state primary.
ON THE Democratic side Sen.
Richard B. Russell of Georgia took
a long early lead over Sen. Estes
Kefauver of Tennessee in the
Florida presidential popularity
vote but most part of the margin
by the time a little over a third
of the vote was in. Then with over
half the voting places reported he
pulled 8,000 ahead again.
Even before the vote counting
started in Oho, Taft had taken
the delegate lead 285 to 281. And
on a tabulation just before mid-
night his delegate candidates
were ahead of candidates pled-
ged to Harold E. Stassen for all
10 of the at-large places and' in
all 15 of the district races, in-
volving 30 votes, on which there
were reports.
- Kefauver, in the lighter Ohio
Democratic voting, staked a claim
to a substantial share of the Demo-
cratic delegates. His men were
ahead in 19 races but fonmr Sen-
ator Robert J. Buckley as a "fav-
orite son" had leads in two con-
tests and was unopposed for 22
votes.
In the Alabama Democratic
primary four delegates favoring
Russell took an early lead and
three who said they were for Ke-
fauver were elected without op-
position.
Eisenhower got two committed
delegates from Missouri and one
listed as "leaning" for a count of
281. The tabulation covers dele-
gates pledged, instructed, favor-
able, willing to state a first bal-
lot choice, or conceded by candi-
dates.
The count from 593 of Ohio's
10,312 polling places gave Sen.
John W. Bricker, the top Taft At-
Large Delegate candidate 24,557
votes. The top Stassen delegate,
J. Paul Brenton, had 6,450 votes.
His total was far below that of the
lowest Taft delegate, who had 20,-
210 votes.
The District delegate races re-
ported, the Taft slate was leading
for 22 delegate places and the
Stassen slate for none.
In the democratic at-large
race, the count from 459 pre-
cincts gave Kefauver's top dele-
gate, 8,412 votes. The top Bulk-
ley At-Large Delegate had 4,708
votes, compared with 7,616 reg-
istered for the lowest Kefauver
candidate.
.In district races reported, Ke
fauver candidates led in 11 con"
tests and Bulkley in only two.
SAC Requests
YP Charges
The Student Affairs Committee
yesterday requested that the Lec-
ture Committee present a list of

specific charges against the Young
Progressives, before any review of
the group would be undertaken.
THE INVESTIGATION was-
called for a month ago by the Lec-
ture Committee, who announced
that they would not approve a pe-
tition for the YP to sponsor an
appearance of William Hood, con-
troversial secretary of Ford Local

cation of the YP's "responsibility."

Campbell New
YD President
Campus Young Democrats last
night elected John Campbell, '55,
as incoming president and gave
outgoing president Gene Mossner,
'52, a standing vote of apprecia-
tion.
Other new YD officers are: Judy
Bender, '54, vice-president; Marcia
Blumberg, '54, corresponding sec-
retary; Bernard Backhaut, '55, re-
cording secretary; Dave Kornbluh,
'54, treasurer; and Lyn Marcus,
'53L, and Marvin Failer, '53L,
board members at large.
YD members also discussed
plans for May 15 appearances of
Gov. G. Mennen Williams and Sen.
Mike Monrony (D-Okla.) at a
rally in Rackham Lecture Hall,
Topic of the rally will be "The
Year of Decision-1952."

THE 73-YEAR-OLD jurist, a
Republican on the bench since
1932, strongly attacked the meas-
ure and asked: "Is the purpose
of the act a delegation of bureau-
cratic powers to create revenue or
to constitute a host of informers?"
Specifically, the bill requires
the gambler to list names, both
real and aliases, and addresses
of persons working for him.
Judge Welsh did not rule on
the legality of another section of
the act which requires gamblers
to pay a 10 per cent tax on. their
earnings.
In Washington, the Justice De-
partment was reported planning
a quick appeal
Internal Revenue Commissioner
John B Dunlap said that he was
recommending an appeal. He add-
ed that pending final disposition
the Bureau will continue to sell
the gambling tax stamps.
Since the law went into effect
Nov 1, 1951, the Internal Revenue
Department has sold 18,913 stamps
for a total of $547,000. Starting
in December, the first month of
collections under the 10 per cent
tax on gambling, the U.S. has col-
lected 10 per cent of the reported
$22,483,270 gambling take.
