SAC Plans
For Meeting
With Hatcher
Goal of Group
Three students from the Studen
Affairs Committee and actini
Dean of Students Walter B. Rea
will meet with University Presi
dent Harlan H. Hatcher next weel
to ask for some form of studen
representation on the faculty com
mittee being set up to study SA(
In an informal discussion a
yesterday's meeting, SAC mem.
e bers unanimously endorsed the
idea of student representation, and
Janet Netzer, '54, Sue Riggs, '54
and Harry Lunn, '54, along with
SAC chairman Rea will discuss the
question with the President.
* * *
FIRST notice of the faculty
study group was given in a lette
from President Hatcher to SAC
two weeks ago.
The size or composition of the
group was not specified, other
than that its members would be
former SAC representatives.
It is also not known whether the
study was initiated by the Presi-
dent or came at request of the
Regents. President Hatcher is out
of town this week and not avail-
able for comment.
SAC approval was given to F. F
(Flip Flop) Fraternity's consti-
tution yesterday after it was learn-
ed the group's national organiza-
tion would allow it to exist here
without a discriminatory clause.
Flip Flop ran into trouble last
spring when local members pre-
sented a constitution for SAC
recognition that limited mem-
bership to Chinese students.
The new clause specifies that
"Chinese and other interested stu-
dents" are -eligible. An interna-
tional fraternity with chapters in
China and the Philippines, Flip
Flop made the membership excep-
tion only in the local case.
The Chess Club was granted
tentative recognition pending ap-
proval of its constitution.
Recognition and approval were
given the Chinese Christian Fel-
lowship and the Psychology Club.
In other action, SAC set 1 p.m.
closing hours for campus social
activities on Saturday, Nov. 21
and Saturday, Dec. 12.
The late closing hour permis-
sions are set in advance through-
out both semesters so that the
big school and college dances can
be scheduled on those nights. The
two approved yesterday are part
of the regular number for the fall

This was the consensus of opin-
ion at last night's symposium, "Re-
ligion Motivates Occupation."

THE "TESTIMONY" given by
the four members of the panel an-
swered the argument of the hu-
manists that religion serves only
as a crutch, in the opinion of Prof.
Frank L. Huntly, of the English
department, moderator of the dis-

Prof. Frank O. Copley, of the
Latin department, dismissed the
"rabbits foot" concept of religion
and declared that he worships
God because he is "the author of
my being."
There is no antagonism between
religion and science according to
Prof. Albert H. Wheller, of the
public health school. "Their ulti-
mate aims are the same," he said,
~ "the search for truth."
Religion has affected his con-
duct as a lawyer, Prof. John W.
Reed of the Law School declared,
to the extent that "I have ceased
to be motivated by the desire for
success'." He attempts instead, he
said, to make professional deci-
sions on the basis of their affect on
other people.

Wilson View
On Security
Hit byYD's
University Young Democrats last
night challenged the recent state-
ment of Charles E. Wilson, Secre-
tary of Defense, that in security
hearings where loyalty is not ques-
tioned the decision must be in fa-
vor of the state.
Along the same lines, a plea for
legislation requiring "traditional
rules of evidence" in Government
loyalty and security-risk hearings
was sent to Michigan's Senators
yesterday by the Southwest Oak-
land County Democratic Club.
* * *
THE COUNTY Democratic group
condemned the Radulovich pro-
ceedings as "more dangerous to
our liberties than the evils that
they seek to combat."
The Young Democrats stated
that "Wilson's position .. . pre-
sents a real danger to a free
At the meeting the YD's accept-
ed a Young Republican challenge

Prof. Samuel Eldersveld, of the
political science department, and
chairman of the Ann Arbor Demo-
cratic party, spoke to the group
on how to integrate Young Dem-
ocrats with the city democratic or-

check it was reported.
A NUMBER of houses were also
listed as not having complied with
last year's Health Service request
that fraternities require their do-
mestic help to have X-ray exam-
inations for TB.
Houses were urged to comply
with the examination request as
soon as possible.

DRIMMEL SAID, "I am not here
to transplant the American system
to Austria but to study the prob-
lems here in the light of those we
have a home."
C. A. Mitts, '54, IFC president,
restated the IFC's policy stand
of last year that fraternity men
should not participate in so
called panty raids and urged
presidents of the State Street
houses especially to caution their
men about creating noisy con-
ditions that might touch off any
general disturbance.

Former U,
Student Asks,
To Quit U.S.
Houssein Salehr-Omoum, a for-
mer University student who has
been held in Washtenaw County
jail since Aug. 24 for non-payment
of alimony, appeared yesterday at
a Department of Justice hearing
in Detroit to arrange to leave the
country voluntarily.
Saleh-Omoum, an Iranian, is
being deported for failure to mainanhssuetsau.H ne-
ed the University in September,
1951, and dropped out of school
last December.
FINANCIAL problems led to the
deportation proceedings against
him, according to M. Robert Kling-
er, assistant counselor to foreign
students. Klinger said Saleh-
Omoum had never successfully
completed a semester's work after
his first semester at the Univer-
sity because he was working part-
"The Immigration Service
kept excusing him," Klinger ex-
plained, "until he dropped out
of school and lost his student
status entirely."
The International Center pro-
vided legal aid for Saleh-Omoum,
Klinger said, but his current legal
representative is an Ann Arbor
The 31-year-old Iranian would
have been compelled to leave the
country months ago, Klinger said,
but deportation was delayed so he
could face charges of non-payment
of alimony in the Washtenaw Cir-
cuit Court.
Saleh-Omoum was released from
Washtenaw County jail on a $500
federal bond in the custody of the
U., S. Immigration Service.
No Gargoyle;

Gargoyle will not appear on

Explanation for the campus hu-
mor magazine's failure to come out
on schedule consisted of a blunt,
"no comment," from Garg man-
aging editor Jan Winn, '54.
Rumors of a possible banning
were gaining momentum, but re-
mained unconfirmed.
Other quarters suggested that
Garg's conspicuous absense from
its traditional haunts was a move
on the magazine's part in favor of
the World University Service
campaign being held today.

sented late last night Miss Winn
said, "things may have blown over
