IFC Passes
New Junior
Group Plan
The Interfraternity Council
house president's assembly voted
last night to establish a junior
IFC for this fall's pledge classes
on a one semester trial basis.
According to the bill's sponsor,
Alpha Delta Phi president Bob
Loeblein, '53, the purpose of the
council would be to coordinate
common pledge activities and to
get more men interested in the
regular IFC.
UNDER THE new proposal, IFC
vice-president Sandy Robertson,
'53BAd., will serve as the group's
chairman with IFC committee
chairmen acting as executive ad-
visors to the council.
The plan further provides for

the junior IFC officers, who will
be elected at the end of the fall
semester, to present a recom-
mendation concerning the body's
permanent status to the first
spring semester meeting of the
house president's assembly.
Dick Manchee, '54E, co-chair-
} man of the IFC-Panhel Counsel-
ing and Information Service, also
presented a report on the group's
study of Acacia's discriminatory
clause situation.

MANCHEE SAID that question-
naires had been sent to all Acacia
chapters last June inquiring as to
chapter and campus attitudes
about bias clauses. Although only
32 percent of the chapters re-

formed Acacia's delegate to the
national convention of the opin-

New Version of Bible Presented at Hill


The Revised Standard Version
of the Holy Bible was presented
to approximately 3,000 people last
night in an impressive ceremony
in Hill Auditorium.
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher gave' the main address,
during which he commended Le-

of Semantics for his part in the
Death Takes
Former 'U'
Official at 78
John C. Christensen, controller
and assistant secretary emeritus
of the University, died at 11:50
a.m. yesterday at St. Joseph's Mer-
cy Hospital of cerebral thrombosis.
Christensen, 78 years old, came
to the University in 1914 as assist-
ant secretary, serving until 1931
when he was named controller,
a position he held until he retired
in 1944.
Previous to coming to Michi-
gan, he worked for Kansas State
Agriculture College and the
Carnegie Institute of Technolo-
Christensen also held appoint-
ments with the U.S. Bureau of Ed-
ucation, General Education Board
for colleges' accounting surveys,
National Commission on Standard
Reports for the Institutions of
Higher Education, and the Ameri-
can Council on Education.
Christensen received his bache-
lor of science degree from Kan-
sas State Agriculture College and
attended the University of Kan-
sas as a graduate student.
The author of various addresses
published in pamphlets, Christen-
sen was associate editor of the
Journal of Higher Education.

Hatcher said, was a product of
two events, those being the desire
which arose during the Reforma-
tion to get the Bible translated in
the vernacular, and the language
revival of the Elizabethan writers.
The basis for the King James
Bible was the translation by Tyn-
dale made in 1525. Today's version
is 90 per cent the same in context
as that first translation he pointed
Many discoveries that have
thrown new light on the earliest
manuscripts have been found so
that the material for the new
version are documents dating to
the third and fourth centuries
after Christ, the president said.
He went on to explain that '"the
work of a generation of scholars
has brought new meaning to 'the
often quoted passages." The liter-
ary form in the Old Testament has
been re-established, he stated. The

Selections for the vacancy will
be made by the SL cabinet and

to comprehend their meanings.
Among the private translations
of the past century, Pres. Hatcher
was most impressed with the Good-
speed translation because of the
different language it uses. Good-
speed explained that his criteria
for terminology was present usage
of the language.
During the program, five Bibles
were presented to outstanding local
church people:Prof. Donald Katz,

U N May Urge
Korean Truce,
The United States is discussing
with several close allies a double-
barreled plan for the U.N. Assem-
bly to urge the Communists to ac-
cept immediately an armistice in
Korea or risk a wider U.N. embar-
go and condemnation.
A diplomatic source in close
touch with the situation said yes-
terday the Americans are consid-
ering this course in the Assembly
opening Oct. 14:
1.Secretary of State Acheson
would put before the . Assembly
a resolution by which the Assemr
bly would express its approval of
the U.N. proposals at Panmunjom,
would urge the Communist Chi-
nese and North Koreans to ac-
cept them.
2. The Communists would be
given a reasonable time to an-
swer, perhaps after the U.S. pres-
idential election. If they do not
answer or if they reject the ap-
peal, the Americans want the As-
sembly to approve a resolution pro-
viding for stronger embargoes
against Communist China and
North Korea.

House Calls
CIA Head
To Testify
WASHINGTON (Ao)-House un-
American Activities Committee
decided yesterday to call Gen.1
Walter Bedell Smith for testimony
on what he knows about Commu-
nist infiltration in government
The ainouncement came just
after Smith, chief of the super
secret Central Intelligence Agen-
cy, had backed a step further
away from his statement that he
believes Reds have penetrated ev-
ery American security agency in-
cluding his own CIA.
* * *
THE GENERAL, elaborating on
his original remarks, said merely
that it was necessary to "assume"
such a thing has happened.
At the same time Republicans
took up the testimony as a ma-
jor campaign issue.
A statement by Chairman John
S. Wood (D-Ga) of the House
committee, issued in Los Angeles,
"The committee voted unani-
mously to subpoena Gen. -Walter
Bedell Smith, requiring him to ap-
pear before it Oct. 13, 1952, in
Philadelphia . . . to give the com-
mittee the benefit of any informa'-
tion of Communist infiltration into
agencies of the government of the
United States, especially his own."
In a question-and-answer ses-
sion with newsmen Smith made
a comment that Communists have
been pretty thoroughly eradicat-
ed in government."

Book Sales
SL cash registers rang up a
record total of $3310 in sales

He' opened his speech by not-
ing - and denying - what he
said are a series of rumors about
his intentions if elected.
He said a whispering campaign
has begun to the effect that, if
elected, he will close and other-
wise curtail military installations-
in the Southern states. Another re-
port, he said, is that he will cut
soldiers' and sailors' pay.

Eisenhower hammered hard
on the theme of misconduct in
public office. He said that the
attitude of people involved is
"as bad or worse than the scan-
dals themselves."
While he repeated his policy for
a farm program, including 90 per
cent parity on basic commodities,
the general disavowed any connec-
tion with the Brannan plan.
"I am sure of one thing," he
said. "The Brannan Plan for the
regimentation of American agri.
culture was not cooked up among
the farmers of South Carolina or
any other state in the union."

Ike's Russian
Policy Blasted
By Truman
-President Truman char'ged yes,
terday that Gen. Dwight D. Ei-
senhower "did a great deal of
harm" to the United States with
his views on Russia immediately
after the second World War.
The President said the Republi-
can presidential nominee "ought
to be honest enough to admit his
blunders about the Russians." Ei-
senhower's views as commanding
general in Europe, Truman said,
left this country unaware of Rus-
sia's threat to world peace.
TRUMAN, carrying his whistle
stop campaign on behalf of Gov.
Adlai Stevenson across Montana
used a rear platform talk at Havre
to mount another barbed attack
against the GOP standard bearer.
Eisenhower headquarters at New
York declined to comment.
He declared that Eisenhower's
"foresight was not nearly as
good as his hindsight."
"After the war, while he- was
still commanding general of our
forces in Europe," Truman con-

tinued, "he said he saw no reason
why Russia and the United States
would not remain the closest pos-
sible friends."
If Eisenhower had given the
country "better advice in 1945,"
Truman said, "we wouldn't have
had too much trouble in waking
up the country to the danger of
Communist imperialism in 1946
