Fisher intends to stick with
the same lineup that he went
with in the South and most of
last season, except for the in-

It finds these glands put out

A marathon, four-month study

may be culminated today with a
proposal to reorganize the com-
plex student governmental struc-
In what is intended as the last
meeting of the Student Committee
to Study Campus Organizations,
two alternative answers to dis-
satisfaction with the present or-
ganizational set-up will be brought
up for final committee considera-
BUT A positive decision on the
reorganization question need not
come from today's meeting, ac-
cording to group chairman Bill
McIntyre, Grad. Neither of the
plans, he said, has been worked
over to the satisfaction of a ma-
jority of the members.
Committee action may come
in the form of tentative approval
of one or the other proposal with
recommended further study or a
motion to make a purely factual
report to the Student Legisla-
ture on the plans considered and
the jurisdictional conflicts found
in the group's study.
Set up in November, the organ-
ization committee consists of Stu-
dent Legislature-appointed per-
sonnel from SL, the League, The
Daily, the Union, the Interfra-
ternity Council, Panhellenic, As-
sembly, Inter-House Council, and
Joint Judiciary as well as repre-
sentatives from the campus at
Originally scheduled to give a
comprehensive summary of its
findings to SL March 4, the com-
mittee a week later presented a
progress report outlining four
possible organization alterna-
tives and resumed its study.
Two of the possibilities were
those which will be considered by
the group at 3:15 p.m. today in
the SL Bldg. They are: an admin-
istrative council consisting or or-
ganizational vice-executives sitting
in an advisory capacity to SL end
a student congress plan which
would place both organizational
and directly elected representa-
tives on a new type of legislature.
Other alternatives included re-
tention of the status quo and a bi-
cameral legislature with one house
directly elected an the other com-
posed of organizational represen-
tatives. The latter has since been

IHC Votes
To Establish
To Hear Election
At a special meeting of the In-
ter-House Council yesterday, a mo-
tion was unanimously passed to
set up a six man judiciary body to.
rule on violations of residence
hall election rules in the recent
all-campus elections and on fu-
ture violations.
The action followed charges in
the individual quadrangle coun-
cils that three students had brok-
en house electioneering rules. The
house councils had recommend-
ed that the IHC take judicial ac-
tion on the violations.
The three students accused of
violations were Al Strauss, Grad.,
Student Legislature candidate,
Bob Perry, '53, Union vice-presi-
dent candidate and Fred Hicks,
'54, candidate for SL and senio
class treasurer.
Strauss, who is not a quad
resident, and Perry, a resident
of East Quad who was accused
of the same violation last fall,
were named for "door to door"
soliciting and slipping campaign
literature under quad room
doors respectively.
Hicks, who lives in East Quad
admitted to members of the East.
Quad Council that he had put
campaign literature in the wash-
rooms of several of thehouses.
The action of the IHC judiciary
board, which will be composed of
the two senior members from each
of the three quad judiciaries, will
be binding on quad residents who
violate the election rules. In the
case of violators living outside of
the residence halls, disciplinary
recommendations will be made by
the judiciary either to Dean of
Men Walter B. Rea or to men's
In other action at the IHC meet-
ing, the first draft of the body's
constitution was submitted to the
individual houses for considera-
tion. The group also decided to
purchase a booth at the coming
Interfraternity Council dance.

Treasure Seekers Given
New Clue; Continue Hunt
An intensive search for the $100 treasure buried somewhere in
Ann Arbor enters its third day today with a new clue added to the
two hints of its location already revealed.
Today's new information on the secret cache reads: "The traffic
near my place of rest is loud and long and full of zest."
TAKEN ALL together the versified hints run as follows:



"I'm in the ground with about
a foot to spare, nearby I hear
the traffic blare
"My round case, bright metal
four inches by two, inside this
case I wait for you
"The traffic near my place of
rest is loud and long and full of
Sponsored by a State St. drug-
gist, the treasure hunt will result
in a $100 cash prize for anyone
lucky enough to trace down the lo-
cation of the buried metal case.
Inside the container is a $100
certificate which is redeemable in
cash at the drug store.
IN CASE no one finds the treas-
ure hoard by Thursday, April 30,
the exact spot will be divulged an'1
the contest ended. Meanwhile, a
new clue will be published each
day to provide fresh information
for, searchers.
Thus far several students have
been seen, mostly in the State
St. area, looking over the
ground for possible signs of
fresh digging.
From the first clue some rea-
soned the prize must be hidden
near a main traffic artery. To-
day's additional hint would bol-
ster that idea. Since there are few
burying spots in Ann Arbor's busi-
ness district, the campus area has
seemed a more likely hiding place
to these treasure hunters.

University Bows to Professor's Pleas for Sanctity

The University is taking steps to replace the clear glass sections
in the doors of Haven Hall with opaque glass on behalf of the profes-
sors who have complained of office life in a "fishbowl."
After experimenting with opaque paint and finding it undesir-
able because "it wears off too quickly," Walter M. Roth, superintendent
of the plant department, sent for samples of frosted glass. Roth has
already submitted one sample to Prof. Burton D. Thuma, associate
dean of the literary college.

AS SOON AS all the samples are received, Dean Thuma will meet
with the heads of the several departments housed in Haven Hall and
the best and most practical glass will be chosen.
Both degree of transparency and price will be a consideration,
