Joint Boards
Form Policy
Activities Center
To Be Studied
Meeting in joint session for the
first time in the history of either
group, the Union Board of Direc-
tors and the League Board of Gov-
ernors last night voted to create a
joint student-faculty study group
of both boards to study and make
policy recommendations on the
student activity facilities problem.
Set up by unanimous vote of the
two groups, the sub-committee will
consist of three student represen-
tatives from each of the boards,
two alumni representatives from
each and one faculty member from
each, making a total membership
of 12.
In addition the business man-
agers of both the Union and the
League will serve in an advisory
capacity on the committee.
LEAGUE representatives on the
committee include Sue Riggs, '54,
League president, Ann Plumton,
'54, Mrs. Herbert F. Taggart and
Mrs. O. E. Boehnke of the alumnae
and Prof. Claribel Baird of the
speech department. One student
member has yet to be appointed.
Committee members repre-
senting the Union will be Jay
Strickler, '54, Union president,
Phil Flarsheim, '54, Union sec-
retary, Prof. William Palmer of
the economics department, Jo-
seph C. Hooper, Ann Arbor at-
torney, and T. Hawley Tapping,
alumni secretary for the Union
The 'proposal for the creation of
the sub-committee was embodied
in the report of the joint meeting
of the subcommittees of the Union
and League which met Monday.

AS CONTAINED in the report,
the proposal called for only two
* student members. However, a mo-
tion before the joint session in-
creased the number of student rep-
resentation to three from each or-
Chairman of the sub-com-
mittee will be chosen by the
group when it meets Tuesday.
The report cited a basic agree-
ment as to the need for additional
student activities facilities. It also

Judges Announce Case Club Victors

* * *

« * *

SHOWN above is the panel of
four judges which yesterday
declared Law School juniors Donn
B. Miller and Theodore J. St. An-
toine victors in the final round
of the Law School's Henry M.
Campbell Case Club competition.
Left to right are Dean E. Blythe
Stason of the Law School, Justice
William L. Hart of the Ohio Su-
preme Court, Justice George E.
Bushnell of the Michigan Supreme

Court and Harrison Tweed, presi-
dent of the American Law Insti-
tute, who heard the oral argu-
ments in an imaginary case in-
volving anti-trust violations yes-
Runners-up in yesterday's argu-
ments were the team of David W.
Belin and Hugh G. Harness. Both
teams had survived three rounds
of eliminations from a group of
the 16 best Case Club participants
to reach the finals.

Debate Freezes SL Action
On, Specific Driving Rules,
Student Legislature failed to come to agreement on a specific
driving ban proposal last night despite a two-and-a-half hour wrangle
involving amendments, substitutions and parliamentary disputes.
Most of the debate centered about the question of whether to
submit a driving ban proposal which the students favor unreservedlyj
but which has little chance of administration approval, or a proposalj
less solidly backed by the students but more likely to be put into effect.

The judges announced their de-
cision at a banquet in the League
last night. Tweed related some ob-
servations on general law prac-
tice gained in 43 years experience
during the evening program.
Miller and St. Antoine will re-
ceive $100 each. Belin and Harness{
will each be awarded $50.
Announcement of Miller's ap-
pointment as presiding judge of
the Case Clubs was also made yes-
Students will have an oppor-
tunity to contribute towards
sending underprivileged boys to
the University's Fresh Air Camp
at Patterson Lake tomorrow
and Saturday as the annual Tag
Day drive gets under way.
Donation posts will be set up
at strategic points in the city
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomor-
row, and from 8 a.m. to noonI
Saturday to raise funds for the
camp's operation.
The fundamental purpose of
the Camp is to provide camp-
ing experience for boys who
because of financial limitations
or behavior problems would not
otherwise have the opportunity.

Tax Bill Passes
By Large Vote
LANSING-)-The House yes-
terday passed both the Cloon Bill
to tax business ea-nings and per-
sonal income and the Nill Bill to
tax corporation profits.
The Cloon Bill passed 76-12 and
the corporation profits tax 70-15
all negative votes were cast by
Republicans who opposed the

House measure levying a straight

through the regular Senate com-
mittee study.
But the corporation profits
tax was inserted into a measure
already passed by the Senate
under the sponsorship of George
N. Higgins (R-Ferndale), chair-
man of the Senate Taxation
The House strategy is to give
the Senate a club through the
corporation profits tax to hold
over Higgins' head if he refused
to cooperate on the Cloon Bill.
SENATE leaders were quick to
pick up the club the House hadj
handed them to use against Hig-
They said, informally, that
the corporation profits tax
would be sent to a House-Sen-
ate conference committee and
held there until they see what
Higgins' Senate Taxation Com-
mittee does to the Cloon Bill.
They hinted the conference
committee would be carefully
picked to obey the Senate major-
ity and not Higgins.

AND THE Senate drove Higgins
to the wall on his own pet pack-

Senator Joseph P. Cloon (R-

And his lieutenant, Senatort
Carlton H. Morris (R-Kalamazoo)t
had to admit that Cloon was right
in saying the liquor tax increase
would produce $16,000,000 instead
of the $7,000,000 Higgins had
promised. Morris moved to cut the
increase from five to four per cent,
saying that would produce $8,-

By The Associated Press
The Allies rejected any Asiatic
nation as a neutral to supervise
Communist prisoners of war who
do not want to return to Red rule.
Lt. Gen. William K. Harrison
Jr. said nobAsiatic nation would
be acceptable because all Asian
countries "are located very close
to countries dominated by Com-
munists and might therefore be
subjected to Communist military,

KEITH BEERS, Grad., told leg-
islators that according to the stu-
dent referendum inlast fall's elec-
tions and comments received fromr
other colleges in a survey conduct-
ed by SL, student opinion here and
elsewhere was overwhelmingly in
favor of no driving regulations.
However, he expressed the
view that such a proposal would
meet with administration disap-
proval at present and instead
suggested SL adopt a modified'
plan calling for driving restric-
tions on freshmen and sopho-
mores only.
Although no vote was taken,
general sentiment during the dis-
cussion seemed to indicate that
SL favored no driving ban, restric-
tions on freshmen, and curtail-
ment of sophomore and freshmen
driving, in that order.
Chairmen of SL committees
for the next semester were also
announced last night. Ned Simon,

Dean Rea explained at the time
of the judiciary decision that the
action could not be questioned on
the grounds of authority since the
governing bodies of the residence
halls are empowered to impose
penalties on men living in the
quads who violate quad or Univer-
sity rules.
Perry is basing his appeal on
the -grounds that the judiciary
was set up ex-post facto.
He based his case also on a
previous Men's Judiciary ruling
that a candidate is not bound by
the rules of any house other than
the one in which he lives. Perry
said that he had not broken the
rules of Strauss House, the house
in East Quad where he resides.
