After Wide Sainlin* Mitts Picks IFC

Legacy: a year of group spirit.
A friendly yet forthright man-
ner has given C. A. Mitts, retiring
Interfraternity Council president,
the unusual ability to make
friendsalmost as quickly as ene-
mies. But when working toward
a particular end, this same char-
acteristic has the effect of pro-
moting a remarkable degree of

"YOU ALWAYS know where you
stand with C.A.," they say. And in
the Interfraternity Council this
has meant giving a new. measure
of responsibility to all members.
The Sigma Chi fraternity
member has sampled quite a
few campus activities before de-
ciding to cast the die with IFC.
As a freshman he worked on
Student Legislature, IFC and
sandwiched in afternoon work-
outs with the swimming team.
One summer he worked at The
Daily as advertising manager.
But IFC was the big activity
for him, and after working as
rushing chairman, he was elect-
ed to the presidency.
C.A. has been referred to as a
"natural" for the office. He is a
person with outspoken interests,
and with IFC the interests clicked
with the office. According to Mitts,
the fraternity system gives a group
of.men an opportunity to get to-
gether and assume the responsi-
bilities of organization.

CLASSIFYING himself as a
"liberal Republican," C.A. believes
in a general policy of evolution
rather than revolution. On the
bias clause issue, for example,
Mitts feels that elimination of
discrimination must be a gradual
process. "In two years," he says,
discriminatory clauses in frater-
nities will have almost disappear-
ed, but we can't force the process."
Along these lines, ,the Inter-
fraternity Council on this cam-
pus set up a Big Ten Counseling
Service which will help all in-
terested fraternities in removing.
national bias clauses. "The serv-
ice has been set up for those
that want it," Mitts explained,
"but we're not forcing them to
use it. Elimination of discrimin-
ation is up to the men them-

For Diseases
More than 7000 children who
participated in the thirteenth an-
nual disease control program of

and tetanus.
Dr. Paul Barker, president of
the society, emphasized the im-
portance of continued protection

pox "will not return to this com-

On Inquiries
Speaking to members of the
Michigan Crib, pre-legal society,
yesterday on "The Purposes and
Limitations of Congressional In-
quiries," Prof. John P. Dawson of
the Law School emphasized that
legislative powers of inquiries are
almost unlimited.
"No court can review the powers
of legislative assemblies," he warn-
ed. Since legislatures need to be
fully informed, Prof. Dawson
pointed out that the power of leg-
fi islative investigation is extremely
important in a democracy.
{ 4" Discussing the use and scope of
the Fifth Amendment in Congres-
sional inquiries, Prof. Dawson ex-
plained that the idea behind the
amendment began in England as

High Churches' practice of forcing
people to incriminate themselves
under oath.
"Its history is the history of
protest against invasion of per-
sonal rights." Commenting on its
present use, Prof. Dawson observ-

busy weeks, sometimes the two
presidents only have time to meet
over the conference table.
Like a long history of campus
leaders before him, C.A. finds that
grades and activities mix some-i

likes people, and finds that thist
justifies his activities.I
