: Deportation Hits
Foreign Student
Authorities Deny Visa Extension;
No Reasons Given for Move

Daily Editorial Director

The insecurity confronting foreign students studying in the
United States was brought home to campus yesterday with the dis-
closure that a University student is being forced without any given
reasons to leave the country.
The student, who came to this country from India three years ago,
must leave by May 30, before the semester is over and before he can
finish his requirements for the PhD. on which he is currently working.
THE LEGAL METHOD by which he is being deported is the refusal
to extend his student visa for another year.
Despite efforts by the Indian ambassador, by University pro-
fessors, by Sefator Blair Moody's "
secretary, and by the student ers of the Communist Party in
himself, the immigration author- India. These students have subse-
ities have refused to disclose the quently been deported.
reasons for their decision.

The complicated case also re-
vealed the lack of present Univer-
sity facilities for giving foreign
students legal advice when they
are faced, with deportation.
Reacting to reports of the case,
the Student Legislature last night
voted to write a letter to the De-
troit Immigration Officials pro-
testing the methods used in. re-
fusing to renew student visas.
The Civil Liberties Committee
last night passed a similar motion
and also requested that a student-
faculty committee be set up to in-
vestigate the possibilities for legal
counseling for foreign students.
In hopes of avoidinb un-
necessary embarrassment and pos-
sible further repercussion on him-
self and his family, the student
has asked that his name not be
made public at present.
TROUBLE BEGAN for this par-
ticular student when he transfer-
red here from the University of
t California. In .compliance with
United States immigration laws,
he requested permission to make
the transfer.
By the time the fall semester
began, however, no word was
heard. The student came to the
University and filed for permis-
sion again. This is not an un.
common practice, and permis..
sion is usually granted with the
warning not to transfer again
without it. The student, however,
received no notice.
While at the University of Cali-
fornia, he lived in the same house
with several Indian students,
whose parents are said to be lead-
Housing Credit
Controls May
Be Loosened
WASHINGTON -(A)-- Govern-
ment credit controls may be re-
laxed soon on new houses costing
more than $12,000, housing ad-
ministrator Raymond Foley said
He told the annual meeting of
the National Savings and Loan
League that it is "quite possible"
that regulation X, governing real
estate credit, will be modified
within the next few weeks.
Among other things, regulation
X requires a down payment of at
least 50 per cent on houses cost-
ing $25,000 or more.
Foley said the Federal Re-
serve Board and the Housing
Administration are studying the
advisability of relaxing the re-
strictions to match the easing-
up ordered by Congress last fall
for homes costing less than $12,-
There is no thought at this
time of abolishing regulation X,
Foley said.

With his visa due to expire in
January, he applied for an exten-
sion in December. Under the law,
extension can be denied without
any reasons given.
The next word the student re-
ceived came in the person of an
immigration official on April 19.
The official told the International
Center that he was here on a
"security matter." He asked the
student when he would be leaving
the country, and showed him a
copy of a letter that had been
sent to the student.
The letter informed him that
he had thirty days in which
to leave, and that the deadline for
his departure was April 20. The
student claimed that he had not
received the letter and asketl that
he be allowed to finish the semes-
Ten days later he received a let-{
ter from the Detroit Bureau of
the Department of Justice, Immi-
gration and Naturalization Ser-
vice. The letter informed him that
he had five days in which to in-
form the Department of the time,
place and means by which he was
going to leave the country.
The student, whose pre-doe-
toral examination was six days
off, wrote the Immigration Ser-
vice that he was attempting to
secure passage and would in-
form them as soon as he knew.
He then took his oral examina-
tion, which he passed despite the
tensions on him. After the exam-
ination. he told several friends
and faculty members of his pend-
ing deportation. Their attempts to
help him met with no success.
When the student went to Wash-
ington, he was told that the mat-
ter was being handled in the De-
troit Office. When he came back
to Detroit, he was told that the
decision in his case had been made
in Washington.
Requests were made that the
student be allowed to remain in
this country until he could fin-
ish the requirements for his PhD.
His father, who is a naturalized
citizen, offered to post bond for
him during the remainder of his
stay. This was refused.
The student conferred with a
local attorney who has handled
similar cases for University stu-
dents in the past. The attorney,
however, was in the hospital. A let-
ter was taken to the immigration
authorities requesting that action
be postponed until the attorney
was out of the hospital. This was
not considered.
THE STUDENT has two courses
to follow. He can comply with the
Justice pepartment's request and
voluntarily leave the country at
his own expense. If he does this
there is the possibility that his

Clutch Bowl
Pandemonium broke loose in
the law quad last night as a
wild midnight football game
was staged by the future bar-
risters in their second annual
"Clutch Bowl."
Several hundred spectators
roared their enthusiasm as the
harried exam-minded lawyers
exploded firecrackers, b 1 e w
whistles and set up spotlights
for the three-hour-long contest
which, started at 11:00 p.m.
Board OK's
Coed Hours
The Board of Representatives
voted by an overwhelming major-
ity yesterday to change women's
hours at the University.
Results of the vote on changes
in women's hours, which were an-
nounced at the Board of Repre-
sentatives m e e t in g yesterday,
showed an overwhelming majority
in favor of the proposals.
All three proposals have al-
ready been given the approval of
Dean Bacon.
THE FIRST change, passed by
a vote of 2,132 to 128, will allow
senior women to remain out until
11 p.m., Monday through Thurs-
day nights.
A vote of 2,223 to 41 effected
a change in hours during exam-
ination weeks and between se-
mesters. When the change is
made official all women 'will be
allowed to stay out until 11 p.m.
Monday through Thursday of
those weeks.
The third proposal placed the
women on campus strongly in fav-
or of greater leniency in the grant-
ing of late permissions by a vote
of 2,179 to 53.
changes are official yet, represen-
tatives will meet with Dean Ba-
con to urge that they be put into
effect as soon as po.ssible.
Dean Bacon has been consis..
tently in favor of this effort by
the women on campus to change
regulations to conform more
'with their maturity and respon-
sibility. "
Following the report of the vote,
the Board of Representatives made
several proposals to change the
method of representation on the
One such proposal would elim-
inate the representatives from
sorority annexes.
Another change discussed at the
meeting was the possibility of en-
acting a compulsory attendance
clause in order to get more women
to the meetings.
Oil Pay Hike
OK'd by WSB
of a quick ending to the nation-
wide oil ,strike brightened last
night after the Wage Stabilization
Board decided to allow up to 15
cents an hour in wage increases
for 90,000 striking oil workers.
The WSB, with its industry
members voting "no," agreed to
approve any voluntary wage boosts
reached between a score of unions
and the nation's major oil com-
panies up to the 15 cent figure.
Labor and public members of the
board joined in approving the
The union originally asked for

a 25-cent raise but recently drop-
ped that to 18 cents, plus other
benefits. But the ceiling set by
the WSB yesterday automatically
rules out raises over 15 cents an
hour except in extraordinary cases.

Chief's Slated
For YD Rally
Sen. Monroney
To Speak Today
Democratic party personalities
will take over the campus when
Sen. Mike Monroney of Oklahoma
and State Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams address a student rally at
4:15 p.m. today in Rackham Lec-
Lure Hall.
Monroney and Williams will dis-
cuss Democratic party policies on
the State and national level, then
throw open a question period. The
rally is sponsored by the Young
* * *
MONRONEY, who has been in
Congress since 1939, first as a rep-
resentative and now as junior sen-
ator from Oklahoma, will high-
light the advantages of the Demo-
cratic party for American youth.
Williams, a graduate of the Uni-

versity law school in 1936, is con-
cerned with the problems of secur-
ing educated leaderst ip for a
democratic society, and of obetain-
ing funds for the University from
the Legislature.
YD president Gene Mossnei,
'52, said that the Governor will
appeal to students to become in-
terested in political affairs, re-
gardless of political affiliation.
The Senator from Oklahoma, a
leading party liberal, has aimed
his work in the present Congress
at inflation control, flood control,
tightening and modernizing the
25-year-old corrupt practices act
and taking politics out of the tax
collecting system.
A staunch supporter of the poli-
cies of Michigan's junior senator
Blair Moody, Monroney was the
Keynote Speaker at the annual
Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner in
Detroit and received wide atten-
tion for his attack on the Repub-
lican party and his condemna-
tion of McCarthyism.
During his seven hour stay in
Ann Arbor, Monroney will also
speak to the City Democrats, at-
tend a luncheon at the Union and
be honored at a picnic at 6 p.m.
on the Island, which is open to
the public.
City .Barbers
Set Increases
For Monday.
Price increases of 25 cents across
the board for haircuts and shaves
were, unanimously approved last
night by the Ann Arbor Barbers
The new rates, which will go in-
to effect on Monday, were orig-
inally planned six months ago. At
that time, however, it was felt
that the Association would wait
until other Michigan communities
moved to increase rates accord-
ing to Ernest Dascola, president of
the Ann Arbor group.
THE RISING cost of living, the
shortage of barbers in town and
better barbering standards were
cited by Dascola as reasons for
the price increase.
At the present time, Dascola
continued, Ann Arbor has a
shortage of about 15 or 20 bar-
bers. Higher wages in other con-
cerns are drawing from the al-
ready depleted ranks and poten-

J- Hop Slated
For Single
Low Past Attendance
Cited for Change
According to the new tentative
campus calender submitted at last
night's SL meeting, J-Hop will be
held for one night only next year
because of financial difficulties.
Ticket sales last year amounted
to 1800 for both nights, while the
capacity for one night is 1500. "Be-
cause of the forthcoming expected
enrollment drop," explained Aggie
Dunn '54, publicity chairman, "it
is financially out of the ques-
tion to hold the dance for both
"The traditional two bands, fra-
ternity booths andextensive dec-
orations will not be effected by this
change," she emphasized.
"However, if student demand
is great enough, it may be pos-
sible to re-schedule the dance
for two nights," Ken Rice '54,
committee member said. .... .
Another feature of the meeting
was the appointment of Bob Bear-
don '54, to fill the place on SL va-
cated by Joe White, '53. Also ap-
pointed was Bob Steinberg '53, as
Homecoming Dance Chairman.
Also a report on the student
book exchange was given by Jim
Youngblood '54, head of the com-
mittee. Four or five central sta-
tions will be set up where students
may bring their used books. These
will include depots in each dorm,
the library and union. "The books
will be collected from June 5 to 12
and then stored in Angel Hall for
sale next semester," Youngblood
Taft Takes
West Virginia
By The Associated Press
Sen. Robert A. Taft apparently
picked up 15 more votes in the
nation-wide race for nominating
delegates yesterday.
Latest returns-still not com-

in 15 contests for GOP delegates
in Tuesday's West Virginia Pri-
mary, with Gen. Dwight D. Eisen-
hower leading in one.
Eisenhower's name, however,
was not on the ballot, and write-

North Dakota Democrats chose
16 national delegates without in-

Steel Threat
steelworkers angrily brandished
the threat of a renewed steel strike
yesterday after getting a new Tru-
man Administration ally in Sec-
retary of Labor Maurice Tobin.
The Steelworkers Union con-
vention shouted approval of a
resolution endorsed by Union
President Philip Murray warning
that the workers won't stay on the
job indefinitely without a pay
The resolution was accompanied
by a mass demonstration of dele-
gates, swarming over the conven-
tion platform shouting, "No con-
tract, no work" arid "We shall
not be moved."
The Union speakers gave no
indication of any date when the
strike threat might mature and
another industry shutdown occur.
After delegate -followed delegate
to the floor with bitter, hours-
long warnings that "We'll hit the
bricks" and "Shut the steel in-
dustry down until Hell freezes
over," the convention unanimously
adopted the resolution declaring
the dispute must be "promptly re-
solved or else."

Past, Present
McPhaul Defendants
To Give Viewpoints
Appointment of two students to
sit informally with the Lecture
Committee was revealed at last
night's Student Legislature meet-
SL members approved cabinet
selections of president Howard
Willens, '53 and past president
Leonard Wilcox, '52, to work with
the controversial committee which
sifts requests of campus organiza-
tions to present outside speakers
ACTION CAME after the Com-
mittee had given SL a "standing
invitation to send two represen-
tatives to its meetings. Under
their invitation, Willens and Wil-
cox will have speaking privileges,
but will not be allowed to vote on
Committee decisions.
Previously students have never
received representation on the
Lecture Committee, but it em-
phasized that this will only be
informal representation as the
Regents have not acted on the
new arrangement Regent ap-
proval would be needed to for-
malize the plan or to grant a
vote tos the two students.

oring lifting of the Regents' by-
law concerning the Committee on
Lectures," and charging the Cam-
pus Action Committee tg report

possible steps for the elimination
of the Lecture Committee was
tabled. The report on the Com-
mittee is being written by Keith
Beers, '52E, who promised to have

Reliable sources indicate that
the center of dissension over the
report in the Campus Action Com-
mittee is the question of whether
SL should ask for removal of the
Regent' by-law or attempt to
strengthen its position by work-
ing on the Lecture Committee.
SL members also authorized the
Culture and Education Committee
to hear the five students put on
probation in the McPhaul dinner
case. The students will relate de-
tails of their hearings before the
University Sub-Committee on Dis-
cipline and the Joint Judiciary.
They will also discuss their ap-
peals and contention that they
were dealt with unfairly.
