Sorosis Penalized with $100 Fine
For Unauthorized Drinking Party

The $100 sorority drinking fine announced in yesterday's Daily
Official Bulletin was imposed on Collegiate Sorosis for an illegal party
held Dec. 11 it was learned yesterday.
The sorority became the first women's residence group in recent
years to be penalized for a drinking violation.

DISCOVERY of the Sorosis fine cleared up mystery surrounding
action by Joint Judiciary Council on a number of rumored violations
F of the drinking rule last semester.

Fire Chief
YTerms Blaze
Alarm Late
As insurance adjustors prodded
the remains of a $250,000 fire
which swept through four campus
stores Thursday, a spokesman for
the Ann Arbor Fire Department
said yesterday the blaze probably
started several hours before it
was first reported.
According to Assistant Fire Chief
a Harold Gauss the fire was well
underway when the first crews of
the department reached the scene
of the blaze shortly after 5:20'
* * *
HE SAID there was only one
entrance into the basement of the
Campus Drug Store where the fire
reportedly began and that was via
a rear entrance in the Carmel Corn
Shop which suffered smoke and
water damage.
This, he said, indicated that
little oxygen had crept into the
cellar and the small conflagra-
fin lva bhaly Cmld~i- r for

The $250 fraternity fine levied
against Sigma Phi Epsilon for
an unauthorized drinking party
Oct. 24 was discovered earlier
and reported in The Daily Dec.
The sorority party was a pre-
pledge formal affair at which most
of the house was present. Alcohol-
ic beverages were served to minors.
The violation was discovered
when several participants at the
party were picked up by authori-
ties later.
* * *
Lexen, '54BAd, refused to com-
ment on the Judic action.
Judie Chairman, Lee Fiber,
'54, declined to comment on this
specific case but explained there
is no set rule for determining a
group violation and that it de-
pends on the individual case.
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon
said that it is unusual for a wom-
en's housing group to be involved
in a violation of this kind.
Another case earlier in the se-
mester involving Acacia fraterni-
ty was dismissed by Judic when
no group drinking violation could
be determined. Several members
of the house did receive individual
fines, however, for drinking intox-
icants and conduct unbecoming a
student Oct. 31.

No Opposition
To Walter Bill
A resolution by Rep. Francis
Walter (D-Penn.) authorizing the
House Judiciary Committee to
challenge the court action brought
against its Red hunters by De-
troiter Balza Baxter was unani-
mously approved in the House yes-
Baxter brought his suit against
the Un-American Activities Com-
mittee Chairman Harold Velde
and Subcommittee Chairman Kit
Clardy in an effort to void a sub-
peona that he appear before the
Judiciary Chairman Chauncey
Reed (R-Ill.) to take whatever
steps are "necessary to protect the
privilege of the House."
Said Walter: "I am sure the
court willagree it has no juris-
diction. I can see no reason why
the judiciary committee should
not report out legislation to
brand this criminal conspiracy
for what it is."
Walter said he agreed with Rep.
Dies (D-Tex.), author of the Dies
Bill, that the Communist party
should be outlawed.
IN THE SPARROW Hospital in
Lansing, meanwhile, Clardy is un-
der observation following a heart
attack suffered Tuesday night.' His
physician Dr. K. G. Christian said
Clardy's condition was "not alarm-
ing" but emphasized that it was
important that he rest.
Velde said however, that Clar-
dy has asked him to go ahead
with the hearings March 29,
even if he were still ill.
The representative had original-
ly planned to hold hearings in No-
vember, and later Jan. 22, but
was advised to delay them until
the end of Smith Act Trials in De-
troit. Hearings during the trial
might prejudice the jury, it was
suggested, permitting the defense
to call for a mistrial.
