IFC Denies
SL Backing
On Exams
Member Fears
Administration
By ALICE BOGDONOFF
Student Legislature efforts tc
change this semester's final exan
schedule failed by a close vote tC
gain support last night at the In-
terfraternity House Presidents As-
sembly.
One opponent of the motion tc
support SL in its attempts to ef-
feet a temporary return to the olc
system of scheduling final exams
argued such a move might throwe
the IFC in a "bad light with the
administration."
- *
ANOTHER House President de-
clared he could not support the
motion without first determining
the opinion of the men in his house
} on the issue.
Commenting on the IFC move,
past IFC president Pete Thorpe.
'53, said "This decision should
be carefully reviewed by the
House Presidents with the mem-
bers of their fraternities.
"It is questionable, I believe,
whether or not the opinion of the
fraternity system was accurate1y
represented by this particular
vote," he continued.
SL plans to present its motior
to the Deans' Conference in earl3
May with a request for the Con-
ference to set up a student-faculty
committee to study the exam
schedule problem.
EARLIER in the IFC meeting,
John Baity, '55, now executive
' vice-president, gave the group a
report on the Big Ten Counseling
and Information Service, the com-
mittee which handles the question
of bias clauses in the Big Ten fra-
ternities.
Baity, who explained the Ser-
vice would now be in the hands
of the executive vice-president,
said each house with restrictive
clauses has been contacted and
the Counseling Service will keep
in contact with these houses.
Baity declined to give the num-
ber of houses who have requested
help from the Counseling Service.
Thirteen fraternities have known
restrictive membership clauses.
A Daily survey showed last fall
that two of these fraternities,
Sigma Pi and Trigon, have mdi-
cated they are not interested in
removing the clauses.
Baity also explained three fra-
ternities with such constitutional
clauses have national conventions
this summer and will favor re-
moval of these clauses at their
conventions.
Baity could not say whether
these fraternities will indicate the
move to delete the clauses.
Survey Center
Gives Findings
On TV Study
Although the public rated tele-
vision as its most important source
of information during last year's
presidential campaign, the med-
ium probably didn't affect voting
itself, a Survey Research study in-
dicates.
Research experts interviewed
1,714 persons in the two-year study
of political behavior. Thirty-one

per cent of the respondents put
TV on top as their source of polit-
ical information. Twenty-seven
per cent favored radio; 22 per
cent, newspapers and five per cent,
magazines.
* * *
RESEARCHERS reported how-
ever, the proportion of those vot-
ing for a particular candidate was
about the same, regardless of the
voters' news sources.
TV ranked highest as a news
source in the Northwest, followed
by the Midwest, the Far West 'and
the South. It made the greatest
inroads on radio, while newspaper
and magazine sales remained about
the same, the report showed.
Study fndings also indicated the
better educated people were, the
more they read about the cam-
paign and the less they valued
television.

By HARRY LUNN
Cited for alleged Communist-

of "The American Mercury," two
University emeritus professors last
night denied they were members
of "front" groups, and defended
an organization mentioned as
Communistic in the article.
Written by J. B. Matthews, the
article attacks Prof. Emeritus Le-
roy Waterman of the semitics de-
partment as a "top collaboration-

ALTHOUGH both faculty mem-
bers said they had given the
ACPFB their support, they denied
it was Communistic and main-
tained It existed to protect legal
rights of the foreign born from
infringement.
"Characterization of the or-
ganization as Communistic was
haphazard and I have never
seen anything to substantiate
it," Prof. Schenk said.
By Matthew's definition, a "top
collaborationist" must be asso-
ciated with 10 or more frontI
groups. One hundred "academic
collaborationists" were mentionedI
in the study, although the widely-
known investigator and writer did
not tell what organizations theseI
100 belonged to.
Prof. Waterman, only "top
collaborationist' named at the
University, called the charge
"completely erroneous."
Reviewing his activities in sev-
eral groups interested in main-
taining Negro rights, Prof. Wat-
erman commented such organiza-
tions were frequently the object
of Communist infiltration, but
said such influences had been re-
pelled in groups with which he
is associated.
THE UNIVERSITY also was+
criticized in the 33-page article
for using a textbook, "USSR,"
which is allegedly shot through
with Communistic propaganda.
Investigation, however, re-
vealed the text, an anthology on
Russian life and culture, is not
presently used here.
In 1947, according to one pro-
fessor, the book was assigned' as
supplementai;y reading in a course,
but was shortly discontinued when
found inadequate and poorly con-
structed. At that time, Pravda was
attacking the book's editor as an
"American warmonger," the pro-
fessor noted.
The American Civil Liberties
Union, American Association of
University Professors, Robert May-

came in for criticism by Matthews
on their attitude toward the Com-

A Chinese fraternity ran afoul
the "Michigan Plan" for combat-
ting discrimination in fraterni-
ties yesterday.
The Student Affairs Committee
cited a four-year-old regulation
denying recognition or permission
to reactivate groups which "pro-
hibit membership because of race,
religion, or color" yesterday as it
required F. F. Fraternity to get
rid of its restrictive clause before
it could win approval.
F. F., WHICH stands for "Flip-
Flop," was seeking sanction for
reactivation of a local chapter
which became defunct in 1948. Its
national constitution contains a

Kappa Alpha, a fraternity largely
centered in the South with a firm-
ly entrenched restrictive clause.
Pi Kappa Alpha had agreed to
permit the proposed Michigan
chapter to exist without the dis-
criminatory clause. SAC acquies-
ced, but the deal fell through when
the Trigon alumni voted down the
affiliation proposal.
"FLIP-FLOP" fraternity, found-
ed in 1910, came on campus in
1938. It lapsed during the war,
was revived shortly afterward,
then went under again in 1948.
There were never more than ten
