SL Backs New
Vice-Pres ien cy
Sends Recommendation to Hatcher
For New Student Affairs Post
By DOROTHY MYERS
With only one dissenting vote, Student Legislature last night
passed a motion recommending to University President Harlan H.
Hatcher the establishment of a University vice-president for student
Earlier in the meeting the legislature voted 29-4 in favor of a
policy stand on academic freedom initiated two weeks ago by Leah
Marks, '55L, and gave authorization to certain election rules of cam-
pus housing units.
THE RECOMMENDATION to President Hatcher states SL ex-
presses "hope that a University Vice-President for student affairs will
be established as soon as possible. SL believes that an office of this
rank, coordinating the work of the dean of men and the dean of
women, is desireable to promote the close contact between the stu-
dents and the University administration and Regents so necessary to
effect the concept of an educational community.
"Since student affairs would be the focal point of concern of
such an office," the motion continues, "SL would welcome the
opportunity to join with the other organs of the University to
suggest the duties of the office and the criteria for selection of
A single dissenting vote was cast by Robin Renfrew, '55, who
did not believe SL should enunciate the duties and criteria for selec-
tion of the proposed vice-president.
A BRIEF twenty-minute debate preceded voting on the academic
freedom policy stand, in its fifth week of discussion by the legislature.
Ned Simon, '55, requested supporters of the stand to explain what
methods of legislative investigating committees "tend to prevent an
educational institution from doing its vital job by producipg an atmos-
phere in which what is novel, original and unconventional may be
punished as being pernicious or wickedly unorthodox." He also noted
the lack of cooperation on part of many witnesses called to testify
before Congressional committees.
In reply Paula Levin, '55, said "investigations have become almost
a trial" and therefore should follow regular due process procedure used
in court trials.
* * * *
CLIMAXING the longest debate of the meeting, SL voted 20 to
11 to adopt "those reasonable and non-discriminatory election rules
established by the housing governments as rules in the fall 1953 all-
A further provision of the motion provides that "violations
of these rules shall be handled by Joint Judiciary with an optional
maximum penaty of removal from SL seat."
Under an amendment introduced by Fred Hicks, '54, if the Joint
Judiciary feels the violation is of such a nature as to warrant the
removal of a member from his seat, it shall recommend such action
to SL." The legislature cabinet will then make a decision concerning
removal with SL's approval.

at the news conference. Joseph

care to comment?"
The President said that he for
one is not going to be critical ofE
Benson for failing to find a mir-

evils that beset the farmer.
Benson, said the President
warmly, is a man dedicated to

Crux of the debate centered over whether SL should enunciate
what specific rules were being endorsed rather than use the more
general phrase which, it was argued, left decisions up to the candidate!
as to what rules would be "reasonable and non-discriminatory."
Miss Netzer emphasized the Inter-House Council Judiciary would
