alking on the diag this week.
Responsible for the noise is a
rell drilling operation that has
enetrated 230 feet into the earth
n search of water. Already in its
fth week of operation the pro-
ect will be a boom or'bust affair
y the weekend.

The IM Building will;
its doors to students
nights this year for its
tional sports program.
Students can come either stag
or with dates on any Friday night
starting Oct. 3. Activities offered
are volley ball, badminton,
squash, handball or swimming.
The games are conducted infor-
mally with the equipment set out
for anyone who wants to use it,
AS A PART of the co-recrea-
tional program this year the IM
staff also plans to sponsor a
league of volley ball and badmin-
ton teams. However, Dave Ed-
wards, '53E, emphasized that this
does not exclude anyone who does
not belong to, the League from
participating in the activities.
The program is headed by Bob
Betzig, assistant wrestling coach
and a member of the IM staff.
Lockers and swimming facilities
will be supplied for women as well
as men, but coeds are asked to
bring their own bathing caps.
The only requisite for admis-
sion is an ID card.
The University of Toledo
sponsored a similar motion at
Theta Chi's convention which
was ruled out of order. Presi-
dent Jim Hull, '53BAd, was not

number of Southern chapters,
in the fraternity.
The defeat of a move to discard
Phi Delta Theta's bias clause was
also attributed to the Southern
chapters and strong alumni oppo-
sition. President Hank Heil, '53,
said that although a majority, in-,
cluding the local chapter, voted
for removal, it was not the ma-
jority necessary to change his fra-
cording to president Dick. Merrill,
'53. Acacia asked the IFC Coun-
seling and Information Service
for help last spring on their clause
problem and a report is due with-
in the next few days, chairman
Dick Manchee said.
Lambda Chi Alpha's convention
also resulted in no clause action
being taken, according to presi-
dent Wilbur Markstrom, '53BAd.
Sigma Phi Epsilon and Kappa
Sigma did not hold conventions
this summer. Kappa Sigma's pres-
ident Norman Thomas, '53, felt
certain that if his chapter did
not bring up the question at next
summer's convention someone else
