Action Reverses Selfridge Board
Decision; Lieutenani t J11ilanlt
By MARK READER
A jubilant Milo J. Radulovich heard the news he had been
cleared of all charges of being a "poor security risk" and retained
by the Air Force yesterday from Secretary of the Air Force Talbott
and hailed the decision as "proof that democratic ideals and traditions
just won't break down."
The Secretary ruling reversed a 10th Air Force board recommen-
dation that the University senior be discharged as a "risk" for close
and continuing association with his father and sister-alleged Com-
munists-and apparently wound up the case of the 26-year-old physics
major whose personal loyalty was never in question during the
proceedings.
* * * *
TALBOTT IN AN official communique said Radulovich had served
well in the Air Force and that "association with his sister was not
of such a nature as to make her*

that the office of University Vice-
President for Student Affairs be
created."

The motion continued, "The
IFC feels that an officer of this
rank, having a genuine interest
and understanding of the stu-
dent body and centralizing the
work of Dean of Men and Dean
of Womer, is desirable to pro-
mote close contact between stu-
dents and University Adminis-
tration and Regents.
"Toward realization of this goal,
it is our recommendation that this
person be Dean Walter B. Rea, a
Michigan man having long exper-
ience with student activities and
affairs. Further, the IFC recom-
mends that the Alumni Interfra-
ternity Conference be urged to
consider its support of this mo-
tion."
A similar motion was recently
passed by the Student Legislature,
except SL did not recommend any-
one for the post.
Little debate followed Mitts' mo-
tion. Jack Boyce, '54, of Sigma
Phi said that Rea was "the most
logical person for the job."

was a motion by Harry Jones,

of the IFC By-Law be changed to
read: "There will be a maximum,
fine of $100 on any fraternity in-
itiating a man who does not have
a two-point scholastic average."
The prevtous section had setI
the fine as $25 which Jones
thought was too low.
"This will make the fraternities
think twice," Jones said, "as a;
group averages have been quite'
low. I'm in favor of any measureI
that will bring it up."
One dissenter claimed $100 was
too high a fine to set. however the

out the Hop weekend and ease
financial problems plaguing the
dance itself.
Budgeted to break even if 1,350
tickets are sold, the big dance can-
not lose money and continue. With
this in mind, SAC allowed the Hop
committee to make plans for the
concert which will feature a well-
known popular orchestra.
