New Judic Plan
Hits Serious Snag
Regents Refuse To Give Approval
To New Constitution, SAC Told
By CRAWFORD YOUNG
The new constitution for the Joint Judiciary Council has hit
a serious snag.
The document, which provided for a more representative and
centralized student judiciary system, was not passed by the Board of
Regents at last Friday's meeting as had been hoped by the Judiciary,
the Student Affairs Committee was informed yesterday.
THE FIVE APPOINTMENTS made May 15 to the Joint Judiciary
under the provisions of the new constitution are apparently to all
intents and purposes nullified.
A close study of the University regulations showed that the
constitution should have been approved by the Committee on Stu-
dent Conduct instead of the SAC, which gave final approval by
,}unanimous vote May 6, after
Band Entertains Crowd
fItaly 's Right
ROME- (P)-Premier Alcide De
Gasperi's Democratic forces re-
tained control of Rome and as-
sorted provincial capitals, but
election tides swept six key south-
ern cities into the hands of a
Fascist-Monarchist combine yes-
Pressed hard by the Communist-
led left and the Fascist-Monarch-
ist right, the Christian Democrats
and their middle-ground allies
appeared holding firmly to a ma-
jority of the 2,400 municipalities
which chose new councils Sunday
HOWEVER, a potential threat
to De Gasperi's pro-Western na-
tional government was spotlighted
by the. gains of the Fascist Ital-
tan Social Movement, which ven-
erates the memory of Mussolini,
and the Monarchists, who seek the
return of royalty.
They captured Naples, now
Allied Headquarters for South-
ern Europe; the key Adriatic
port of Bari, through which U.
S. arms pour into Italy; Fog-
gia, a wartime Allied air base;
Salerno, where Allied troops
landed to deal a death blow to
Mussolini's rule and the cities
of Avellino and Benevento.
The Communists held tightly
to five provincial capitals they
first won in elections of 1946. These
were Ferrara, Rieti, Terni, Aosta
and Perugia. The Communists also
won 22 of the Rome Province
Council's 45 seats. However, un-
der Italian law these councils play
a minor role in local governments.
Returns from the smaller cities
and towns were slow.
An official tabulation of early
returns showed the Christian Dem-
ocrats and their allies had won
364 towns; Communists and pro-
Communist Socialists 187; and the
Fascist-Monarchist combine 51.
Gets New Job
DETROIT-(A)--David D. Hen-
ry, Wayne University president
since 1945 and a leader of its
large-scale building program, dis-
closed yesterday he had accepted
the post of Executive Vice-Chan-
cellor of New York University.
The 46-year-old educator will
take over his new duties in Sep-
tember. His formal resignation will
be presented to the Detroit Board
of Education on June 10 when
some preliminary action towards
finding his successor will be made.
A native of McKeesport, Pa., Dr.
Henry was graduated from Penn-
sylvania State College in 1925 and
taught there for two years before
coming to Michigan.
SL Will Collect
Books for Fall
The Student Legislature will be
collecting books for the fall book
exchange from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30
devoting considerable time to a
couple of controversial clauses
in the document.
It was pointed out that the
Joint Judiciary in any campus

cipline, a sub-group of the student
THE STUDENT conduct group
is an unwieldy, cumbersome body
composed of all the deans and
directors of the University, plus
four students. The committee,
which is chaired by Dean of Stu-
dents Erich A. Walter, has not
met for over two years. Itsfunc-
tions are not clearly, defined.
However, it was emphasized
that this channel must probably
be followed before the constitu-
tion wins approval by the Re-
Meanwhile, the student judicial
operations will revert to the pro-
cedure used before the SAC gave
apparently superfluous approval
to the new constitution.
Under this set-up, the Joint Ju-
diciary was composed of four
members of Men's Judiciary, four
members from Women's Judiciary,
and a chairman, alternating in
sex each year.

The biggest fly in the oint-
ment in quietly reverting to the
former procedure seems to be
the five already named by the

diciary. These were Joel Billar,

rille Landes, '53, Alberta Cohrt,

The SL cabinet quickly named
Billar and Emerson to Men's Judi-
ciary Monday, making them offi-
cial members of the joint council.
However, it was felt in several
quarters that it would be unfair to
the members of the League Inter-
viewing Board to railroad through

True Talks .Critic al;
Reds Threaten Offense
By The Associated Press
The bitter and prolonged Korean armistice talks entered a more
critical phase today as the threat of a Communist spring offensive
hung like a thundercloud over the battlefield.
After nearly 11 months of wearying negotiations a truce seemed
farther away than ever-but both sides agreed to meet again today
at Panmunjom at 9 p.m. Ann Arbor time.

THE TOP TRUCE teams reconvened yesterday after a three-day
recess. Even before the Allied delegation took their seats in the dusty,
weather-bleached tent, North Korean Gen. Nam Il said angrily:
"The Korean Peoples Army and the Chinese Peoples Volunteers
decidedly cannot sit by while seeing their captured fellow com-
batants being slaughtered by your side at will."
Slowed by Reds
BERLIN-(R)- The Communist
East German Government yester-
day told Red Secret Police they
could shoot to kill anyone found
without proper authorization in a
newly-created no-man's-land at
the tense West German border.
Creation of the three-mile-wide
zone was one in a series of retali-
atory moves aimed at West Ger-
many for signing a separate peace
contract with Britain, France and
EAST GERMANY also cut off
all telephone service between West
Berlin and the Russian sector and
some long distance lines to West
Germany. It adopted a new for-
mula for transit visas which could
strangle traffic between West Ber-
lin and the Bonn Republic.
With these steps East' Ger-
many has created machinery
which requires only a little
tightening to blockade- Berlin.
A senior allied official said:
"They have now arranged things
so that we have the alternative of
slowly watching West Berlin
wither away, put the entire place
on the dole, or start up an airlift
(as was done in 1948-49 to break
the blockade). If they claim the
skies above their heads too, that's
IN PARIS, the Big Three West-
ern Powers said they would regard
aggression against Berlin as a
threat to their own security.
The new visa formula requires
all Germans to get an East Ger-
man permit before setting foot
on East German soil. There are
100 miles of this soil between.
Berlin and the West.
The series of steps, with every
sign that there were more to come,
appeared to be based on Commun-
ist reasoning that signing of the
peace contract torpedoed the Pots-
dam agreement of 1945 which set
up the rights West Berlin enjoyed
in its relations with the West.
Plan f or Fall
OK'd by SAC
Revised rushing procedures for
both fraternities and sororities
won approval from the Student
Affairs Committee yesterday.
The Interfraternity Council put
before the SAC an amended set
of rushing by-laws, containing
three notable changes:
1. The rushee will not pay the
$2 rushing fee till1he signs a pledge
card. At present, the $2 is paid
when the student registers for
2. An informal pledging per-
iod from the fifth to the fif-
teenth weeks of the semester will
be held. This was adopted dur-
ing this past semester on an ex-
perimental basis, and was ap-
proved as a permanent fixture
by the SAC with the reservation
that the policy would be subject
to review after a two-year trial
3. Appeals on decisions of the
Executive Committee. on rushing
violations will be made to the
Men's Judiciary, instead of the
House President's Assembly.

final approval for the fall rushing
scheme. Next year, sororities will

ments for initiation will be in
