Outlining the functions of the

Its initial decision concerned

Student High Court Jurisdiction,
Composition, Procedures Explained
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of articles on the Joint
Judiciary Council.)
Those that do, do and those that don't, don't.
What to do with those that do when they get caught?
That's the question answered by the Joint Judiciary Council. This1
series of articles will attempt to tell what some of the commonly
violated campus rules are, how the violators' cases are handled,.
and what is likely to happen to "those that do."

Board Takes Soviet Recognizes East
Policy Stand
On Club Bias German Sovereignty;
Senior Board passed three mo-
tions concerning their policy stand
on discrimination in reference to
student speakers at alumni gath-
erings yesterday at a meeting.


o0 Holden

The situation arose recently
when, according to a letter writ-
ten by the Board to be sent to the
Michigan Alumnus for publication,
"one of the students chosen for a
speaking engagement was unable
to participate because the alumni
club was holding its meeting in a
private club which allows no mem-
biers of the Negro race to enter the
building as guests."

TO BEGIN WITH, just what is the Joint Judiciary Council
and how does it fit into the campus disciplinary setup?
The Joint- Judiciary Council, known by its friends as "judic."
is made up of five men and five women students who sit as a
"student high court" to hear disciplinary cases referred to them by
