NON-MEMBER BUREAUCRACY:
SL Creates New AduMinistrative Wing
By HARLAND BRITZ *.'f.-
Bureaucracy has hit the Stu- s
dent Legislature.
The SL variety of the species
has been initiated with the or-
ganization of a new department-
the Administrative Wing.
. ... ...: .
THE NEW GROUP, composed :::.r..
of non-SL members, will have the
broad assignment of helping thel
over-worked legislators with their '<
duties. This means wing mem-
bers will find themselves doing
office work, aiding in SL projects,
working out details in SL's com-
mittee organization, and giving :....
advice.
At present, the wing is littlef
more than a plan of action with
a chairman, in this case called
a coordinator. But within two .r
days the program should be roll-
Ing.
. In fact, at 4:10 p.m. tomorrow p
the SL will hold a'tryout meeting
in room 3D of the Union to which
all interested parties have been
invited.

John Vincent
Exonerated
Of Charges
WASHINGTON - (P) - The
State Department yesterday "com-
pletely cleared" career diplomat
John Carter Vincent of all charges
involving his loyalty and security.
They included testimony by
Louis F. Budenz before a Senate!
committee that Vincent was once a
Communist.

'U' of Chicago Implicated
In Ship Investment Deal

AS SOON as a staff is gathered,'
and Coordinator J o h n Baity
claims he could use 60 students,
the group will undergo an exten-
sive training program. At the
same time they will be fitted in
to a variety of tasks that the SL
has waiting for them.
The administrative set-up of
the wing, which was okayed at
last Wednesday's SL meeting,
calls for a chieftain, the coor-
dinator, who is not a member
of the legislator and who is
chosen by the SL cabinet.
The office staff of the wing is
headed by a regular assistant to
the SL's recording secretary. His

staff assists with the secretarial
and managerial problems of SL.
IN ADDITION six wing mem-
bers will act as secretaries to the
regular committees of the Legis-
lature and each cabinet member
will receive an assistant.
Another group in the wing
will be the projects committee
which will be composed of sev-
eral regular members, and the
coordinator.
The program is not a new

brainchild of the SL. Non-SL
members have long worked for
the group, and last semester a
similar program without such
elaborate trappings was experi-
mented with.
The specific terms of the new
program are the creation of Leah
Marks, '52, member-at-large.
Coordinator Baity promises try-
outs a good chance for promotion
and a useful place in campus life.
"They won't be just atministra-
tive robots," he maintained.

Along with the verdict that
there was "no reasonable doubt"
of his loyalty, Vincent received
an expression of confidence
from Secretary Acheson. The
finding, by the Department's
loyalty-security board, was
turned over to the Loyalty Re-
view board of the Civil Service'
Commission.
The review board has authority
to reverse a decision on an agency
board.
Senator McCarran (D-Nev.),
Chairman of the Senate Internal
Security Subcommittee, which re-
cently questioned Vincent, told re-
porters:
"It is difficult for me to see,
with all the information our com-
mittee has before it, how the State
Department could arrive at that
conclusion and especially how the
Secretary could congratulate Mr.
Vincent."

The birthday of the first Presi-

Bennett I. Weaver, of the English
department, on "George Washing-
ton."

highlight the speech department
assembly at 4 p.m. today in Rack-
ham Lecture Hall, will deal with
three phases of the General's
career.

'U' Given Flint Radio Station
University broadcasting facilities developed into a network of
sorts yesterday, as the acquisition of a small FM station in Flint was
announced yesterday.
The transmitter, tower and all equipment of station WAJL-FM
were given to the University by an anonymous donor, according to
Waldo Abbott, director of the University Broadcasting Service.
University operation of WAJL-FM will begin as soon as the
Federal Communications Commission approves the license trans-
fer.
The station will be used as a relay point to improve Flint and
Saginaw Valley area reception of programs originating in the campus
studios of WUOM-FM. Reception previously had been spotty there,
Abbott said.

would talk about was worked out early in the conferences and
has provided the basis of all subsequent meetings. .
2) Truce line-There is no formal agreement on this at the
moment but presumably if a cease-fire could be established at once
it would mean the delineation of a buffer zone along the present
battle line.
3) Supervision of a truce-Many details have been worked
out but there are a couple of issues remaining which could wreck
the conference. One of these is the new insistence of the. Reds,
against UN opposition, that Russia be one of the "neutral" na-
tions on a proposed supervision commission. The other is that
the Reds should agree not to build up airfields in North Korea
while an armistice prevailed.
4) Prisoners of war-This has provided the most serious sticking
point: whether all POW's should be repatriated, as the Reds insist,
or whether only those who want to go home should be returned, as
the UN demands.
