v A streamlined student judiciary'
system came a large step closer to
reality yesterday with announce-
ment of unanimous approval of
Joint Judiciary Council's constitu-
tion by the Committee on Student
Final passage of the constitution
was recommended to the Regents
by the group, and the charter was
immediately sent to President Har-

PRESIDENT Hatcher last night
said he had not yet had time to
study the constitution, and could
not tell when his recommendation
on it would be ready for final Re-
F gental action.
Approval of the judiciary con-
stitution came Thursday at a
special meeting of the Student
Conduct Committee, but was
kept secret until President Hat-
cher was notified of the decision
yesterday by Dean of Students
SErich A. Walter, who serves as
the group's chairman.
Dea Walter said yesterday he
was very pleased" with the ac-
tion, which culminates a two-year
effort to win permanent recogni-
tion of the Joint Judiciary Council.
The Council has existed rather
informally under temporary jur-
isdiction authority granted in 1950
by former President Alexander G.
Ruthven and the University Sub-
Committee on Discipline.

IF APPROVED by the Regents,
the new charter will "bring the
Council's constitutional evolution
up to date with its functional evo-
lution," outgoing Judiciary chair-
man Pete Lardher, '53E comment-
ed last night.
Inmnediate results of passage
would be a unification of se-
lection boards and an incorpo-
ration of action taken previous-
ly by the Residence Halls Board

Committee on Discipline and
Joint appellate jurisdiction over
residence hall cases, Lardner
Unification of the selection pro-
cess proved the biggest source of
controversy in setting up the new
Under original plans an inter-
viewing council with four Student
* Legislature members and two
League officers was planned.
Opposition to this arrangement
developed, however, and the new
constitution provides for an in-
terviewing board with three SL
members, two League officials and
the outgoing Joint Judie chair-
man, who will serve as chairman
without vote except to break ties.
AT PRESENT the Joint Council
derives its membership from the
Men's and Women's Judiciary
Councils. The Men's Council is se-
lected by the SL Cabinet, while the
Women's Council is appointed by
the League Interviewing Board.
With the new system in ef-
fect, the 10 member council
(five men and five women) will
be selected entirely by the uni-
fied interviewing board.
Functionally, the Women's
Council will continue as before to
radjudicate violations of League
rules, but the important functions
of Men's Judic have been incor-
porated into the Joint Councis
duties with the result that Men's
Judic could eventually be dis-

recommendations under the new
arrangement as it does now.

shout in derision as ring announ-
cer Ben Bentley raised Marciano's
hand in victory. Felix Bocchicchio,
Walcott's manager, protested to
the referee that he had counted

Sikora, when asked if Walcott
rose at the count of 10, said: 'No,
I could have given him one
more count."
Walcott's handlers rushed
around ringside, yelling that Jer-
sey Joe had not heard the count.
Jersey Joe looked grim and tense
as he came out for the first round,
tying up Marciano who was miss-

the offensive.

blank expression on his face as
the referee counted.

bassy in Prague, and the duty of-

Ambassador George Wadsworth.
ANNOUNCEMENT was printed
in Moscow's Pravda, official organ
of the Communist party. The full
text, so relayed by the AP Bureau
in Moscow :
E "The Czechoslovak news agen-
cy reports that by a decision of
the President of the Czechoslo-
vak republic, Antonin Zapotocky,
William Oatis has been amnes-
"William Oatis on July 4, 1951,
was exposed by the state court in
Prague for espionage and other
anti-state activities and was sen-
tenced to deprival of freedom for
10 years.
"In November, 1952, the wife of
the sentenced person, L. Oatis,
through the Czechoslovak Embas-
sy in Washington, sent a letter to
the President of the Czechoslovak
republic with a request for par-
doning W. Oatis.
"As stated in the report of the
Czechoslovak news agency, the
President of the Republic has sat-
isfied this request."
THE LETTER referred to was
addressed by Mrs. Oatis on Nov.
15, 1952, to the man whose regime
had imprisoned Oatis, and who
was then President - Klement
Gottwald. Gottwald died in March,
and the pardon presumably was
granted by the new President, An-
tonin Zapotocky.
,The Moscow announcement fol-
lowed a series of releases of Amer.
ican, British and French civilians
who had been seized by Commu-
nist forces in Korea when the war
there broke out in the summer
of 1950.
There have been no Western
newspapermen in Prague since the
week of Oatis' arrest.
