Cautioning the Legislature to be governed by a sense of propor-
tion in their projects this fall, Dean Walter told members to make
sure they knew student opinion before they took action on issues.

of student opinion, and the Dean warned that if SL is to reflect
student opinion it should draw on

Issue Hits 'U'
University plans for further de-
velopment of the North Campus
were given a setback last night
when the Ann Arbor City Council
tabled a vote on annexation of
property surrounding the city,

UNIVERSITY plans called for
construction of the systems to be-
gin this fall in order to be com-
pleted for the opening of the first
campus structure, the Cooley
Memorial Building, next fall.
Council opposition hinged
around the lack of a binding
legal agreement on the Univer-
sity's part concerning financing
construction of several public
utilities on the campus.
Led by Alderman and University
engineering Prof. Arthur D. Moore
and Alderman Lawrence Ouimet,
the council was reluctant to make
a decision that would bind the city
to annexing the land without full
assurance that they would not
have to finance the facilities need-

DESPITE tentative assurance by
Pierpont that the University would
build sewers, water mains, roads
and fire fighting facilities at Uni-
versity expense, the council in a
voice vote decided unanimously to
'" delay action.
Previous instances of joint city-
University undertakings without
formal agreements were cited by
Pierpont as having been lived up
r to both parties.
The council vote follows a series
of delays on the annexation issue
extending over four months.

Speaking later in the meeting,
legislator Ted Friedman, '53, told
members "the upshot of the
Dean's comments was complete
rejection of SL."
"He denies that it fulfills our
function as a medium of student
opinion," Friedman asserted.

DEAN WALTER had listed SL's
chief successes as administration
of elections and the Cinema Guild.
Referring to SL's responsibility to
mirror student opinion, he stressed
that SL elections were last held in
April and asked: "What the stu-
dent opinion in May and June?
What is it now?"
Friedman maintained that
elections are SL's authority and
contend that the organization
must be able to be governed by
He recommended that the Cabi-
net consult with Dean Walter and
make the SL position clear on this
issue before any important pro-
jects come up for consideration.
Otheremembers echoed Fried-
man's remarks, adding that the
issue of University recognition of
SL aims is a very great problem.
In other action last night mem-
bers voted unanimously to write
the University orientation commit-

of students in orientation week

mention of the amount of the
fund, nor did he name any con-

When a reporter asked if hez
thought Nixon should remain1

with an emphatic "yes."
Taking a few minutes to chal-

Taft repeated the GOP demand
that Gov. Stevenson give a public
account of donors who gave fi-
nancial help to state employees.
THE MAIN topic of discussion

Michigan Secretary of State and
GOP gubernatorial candidate Fred'

derful." Lloyd Buehl, organiza-

This endorsement by the Re-
>ublican presidential nominee of

3, sealed Nixon's place on the tick-
IN A DRAMATIC climax to a
veek-long controversy over Nixon's
cceptance of an $18,000 privately-
aised expense fund, Eisenhower
told a cheering throng in Wheel-
ing, W. Va., Stadium:
"I feel that he has acted as a
man of courage and honor and
so far as I am concerned stands
higher than ever before."
It seemed to be a foregone con-
lusion that there would be an an-
nouncement that Nixon would
stay on the Republican ticket as
vice presidential nominee,
Nixon had flown from Mon-
tana to meet the GOP presi-
dential nominee. Their confer-

Nixon had appeared before a na-

audience Tuesday night to state
the case as regards his finances.
Eisenhower had delayed his
speech in Wheeling last night in
order to meet the plane bringing
his running mate, who has been
under fire for accepting an $18,000
private expense fund.

The General also declared last
night there is room in the Repub-
lican party for members who don't
agree with all of his views.
"Membership in our party," he
said, "does not necessarily mean
mutual agreement or approval
other than on basic objectives
Eisenhower mentioned no names.
But his remarks seemed an obvious
reference to Democratic attacks on1-

IN WHEELING Nixon said that
a lesser man than Eisenhower
might have said at the very be-
ginning that the charges against'
Nixon were "just smear/" and that
he would not listen to them.
"I am glad General Eisenhow-
er didn't do that," Nixon said.
"There has been too much of
that in the present administra-
tion - too much clamming up
when charges were made in high
places. People don't want any
more of that."
Nixon said he felt this was at
sharp contrast to the actions of

inee for president.

FRATERNITIES' SUMMER REPORT:
Attempts at Bias Clause Removal Fail
By MIKE WOLFF
Nine of the 14 campus fraternities having discriminatory clauses
discussed removal proposals at their national conventions this summer
but in all cases where the matter came to a vote, anti-bias clause plans
were either tabled or defeated.
The opposition of alumni and Southern chapters appeared to
play a dominant role in defeating proposals to remove the clauses.
The moves came as a sharp disappointment to seven fraternities
whose presidents reported last spring that their chapters would defi-
nitely take action and vote in favor of removing restrictive clauses.

HOWEVER there were indications that progress has been made
on the problem. It has been an issue at several schools including
the conditions at all of the chapters and report
their findings at the
ALTHOUGH a locally supported move to abolish Sigma Nu's
clause was defeated, president Wayne Lambert, '53BAd, felt progress
had been made. He believed anti-bias clause proposals had not even
been able to reach the convention floor in the past.
Another indication of improvement was the large under-
graduate vote that a motion to remove Sigma Alpha Mu's clause
received, according to president Bob Steinberg, '52Ed. He reported
that it was largely the alumni and the Southern vote that de-
feated the move.
