Legislative Acts
The Student Legislature cabi-
net decided yesterday to recom-
mend an educational rather than.
a legislative approach to the bias-
clause problem.
Meeting to consider follow-up

of the SL sponsored, SAC ap-

means of action on the problem
for next fall. Wednesday the cab-
inet issued a statement calling
President Hatcher's decision "re-
grettable" and reaffirmed their
belief in the basic principles of
the vetoed proposal, but prom-
ised further action in the human
relations field.
Cabinet members are plan-
ning to work on the discrim-
ination problem through a pro-
gram of continued action by
the SL Human Relations Com-
mittee and cooperation with the
newly formed Big Ten IFC-
Panhel Counseling and Infor-
mation Service.
Commenting on future anti-bias
action, Panhel president Diane
Harris, '53, and Interfraternity
Council president Pete Thorpe, '53,
said last night "we hope that the
SL too will feel that an education-
al and informative policy will be
cne of the best methods of solving
this problem."
"Certainly a feeling of coopera-
tion between the two groups would
be of great benefit to the whole
counseling service," they added.
OUTLINING the progress of
the Big Ten Counseling and In-
formation Service to date, Miss
Harris revealed that letters had
been sent to all the Big Ten
schools asking them to appoint
students from the local ]FC and
Pan-hel to head up the individual
campus programs.
Newly appointed Michigan
leaders, Dick Manchee, '54 of
IFC and Joan Pruitt, '53, of
Panhel are now recruiting stu-
dents from all fraternities and
sororities to help staff the cam-
pus organization. Manchee and
Miss Pruitt will be in charge, of

To Colonels
my yesterday "broke" the two
brigadier generals involved in the
Koje prisoners' revolt fiasco in
Korea, reducing them to the
rank of colonel, and ordering a
formal reprimand for the immedi-
ate superior.
Demoted were:
1. Brig. Gen. Francis T. Dodd,
the Koje commandant who was
seized and held for several days
by the Red POW's until their
"ransom" demands were met.
2. Brig. Gen. Charles F. Colson,
the man who agreed to the pris-
oners' terms for releasing Dodd.
Both were reduced to their
permanent rank of colonel. As a
result, each will lost $133.38 a
month in pay and $34.20 in rent
In addition, the Army ordered
an "administrative reprimand" for
Brig. Gen. Paul F. Yount, com-
mander of the army base section
at Pusan which has jurisdiction
over the Koje Island Prison Camp.
Although mild sounding, a rep-
rimand goes down in the Army's
book as a black mark against the
offender and makes it harder for
him to gain promotion.

Allies to be on guard against the
possibility of "renewed Commun-

The State Department belatedly
disclosed yesterday that the warn-

offensive in Korea was given 10
days ago to diplomats represent-
ing UN nations with forces in the
Korean conflict.
Meanwhile armistice negotiators
began a three-day "cooling off"
recess during which the Allies
hope the Reds will abandon their

Group Plans
Legal Advice
For Students
At an informal meeting yester-
day a group of students laid plans
for setting up a University system
of legal'aid to foreign students.
The group was moved to action
by the recent impending deporta-
tion of Joseph Singh Bains, an
Indian graduate student.
* * *
the group is that forms be avail-
able at registration for foreign
students to fill out to ascertain if
the students are here in full com-
pliance with immigration laws.
The students also plan to con-
tact other schools throughout the
country which have such legal aid
set ups.
Lastly the group has advised
that a "competent legal advisor
be provided by the University.
This advisor would step in if a
foreign student were called before
the immigration authorities for
violation of a regulation and if
the case were taken to a court.
Aiming for action in the fall,
