Loeal Thefts
Three campus fraternities were
hit for $383 in a rash of early
morning thefts during the be-
tween-semester lull.
First two of the thefts occurred:
early the morning of Jan. 27 when
Delta Theta Phi and Phi Delta
Phi professional fraternities had
$107 and $35 taken.

THE THIRD theft occurred be-
tween 2 and 6 a.m. Feb. 3 when
niembers of Phi Gamma Delta fra-
ternity were relieved of $241.
In all three cases the houses
reported the money had been
lying in wallets on tops of dress-
ers, in top drawers or in trouser
pockets. None of the houses were
Ann Arbor police said yesterday
that they had been unable to make
any headway in solving the thefts.
The houses had notified police
of the robberies the following day
and detectives showed up at Delta

what had happened. No further
investigation was made at the

loss over the phone to the police
but said that no investigation had
been made by officers at the house.
Members of Phi Gamma Delta,
hardest hit of the three, re-

twice but said that no investiga-
tioa had been made by police of-
ficers at the house.
Police officers maintained that
Detectives George Simmons and
John Walters had been sent to the
house to make a report.
The Interfraternity Council has
repeatedly warned houses of the
potential danger of theft where
houses are left unlocked and where
men lay their wallets carelessly on
dressers and desks for the night.
A series of robberies following
the same pattern occurred last
fall when close to $600 was taken
from fraternities and Martha

Regents Hit
MSC Name3
Change Idea
Lashing out at the proposal to
change the name of Michigan
State College, to Michigan State
University, the Regents have is-
sued a statement denouncing the?
possible move as confusing, an1
infringement, wasteful and un-
The statement, approved unani-
mously by the Regents at a spe-
cial meeting Jan. 27, was, sent to
the Governor and the State Leg-f
IT WAS THE first such special'
Regents,meeting called since Pres-
ident Harlan H. Hatcher was in-
augurated. It was also the first
time the University had taken off,
the gloves in the growing MSC
Meanwhile, 8000 Michigan
State students have been busy
signing a 400 foot long petitionj
urging the "promotion" for
MSC. The petition, sponsoredt
by the MSC student congress,
was presented to the Legislature
last night.
The Regents' statement read, in;
"Since the University of Michi-
gan has been the State university
of Michigan for 117 yeras, and is
known throughout the world by
this title, it would be and in-
fringement to change the honored
name of the Michigan State Col-
lege of Agriculture and Applied
Science to that of the Michigan
State University.
"Moreover, the proposal is, we
believe, clearly contrary both to
the language and the intent of:
the Michigan Constitution .
the people of the state intended
to create just one state university.
"What 'state university' wouldF
be meant in connection witht
Michigan? In conversations, in<
articles and news references, inx
legislative bills, in acts already
on the statute books, in student
transcripts and other records,
there would be endless oppor-
tunity for .mistakes.
"Should the proposed change be
made, further encouragement and
impetus would certainly be given

the current system which allows
no free time between the end of
classes and the examination pe-
riod. At the sane time it will not
push finals back so far that re-
sults cannot be filed before for-
mal commencement.
The new proposal was made
necessary as a result of a Com-
mittee vote last month to coni-
sult "the various faculties and
other interested groups of the
University" before passing a fi-
nal okay on the controversial
Crary Plan.
According to some student mem-
bers of the Committee, the deci-
sion to move back exams was made
at a meeting to which none 0:
them was summoned. T h e y
claimed that the finished propos-
al was submitted to them for their
approval several days later.
Assistant to the President Erich
A. Walter however said that the
original confab was merely a gath-
ering of "some deans and some
members of the scheduling com-
mittees of the Engineering college
and the Literary school to find
out what their recations would be."
* * *
HE STRESSED that it was a
"matter of trying to get some in-
formation from faculties as soon
as we could so we could have some-
thing concrete to work on," anc
said that examination schedules
of all the student Committee mem-
bers prevented their attendance.
Ruth Rossner, '55, pointed out
that the "student members had
been urging discussion of the
spring exam schedule all semes-
ter," and felt that since it had
been postponed until the close
of classes there wasn't any rea-
son why "we could not hold a
meeting during orientation week
"Mr. Walter with all his deal-
ings with students should have
known them a little better in thi
case," she said.
THE PLAN is a part of a Uni-
versity effort to make commence-
ment exercises a more than tok-
en procedure with actual gradua-

corded grades of the spring se-
