SAC Denies
Of Fraternity
Lifts Stipulations
For House Posts
r Pointing to its 1949 decision pro-
hibiting granting recognition to
fraternities having bias clauses in
their constitutions, the Student
Affairs Committee yesterday de-
nied Phi Kappa, a fraternity lim-
ited in membership to 'practical'
Catholics, permission to reactivate
on campus.
Rejection of the Phi Kappa pe-
titian followed ,a lengthy discus-
sion and interview with Joseph L.
Osberger, national senior vice-
president, and other representa-
tives of the fraternity.
The SAC action was based on
the May 3, 1949 ruling of the com-
mittee which says: "recognition or
permission to reactivate will not
be granted a group which prohibits
membership in the organization
because of race, religion or color."
Representatives of the fraternity
maintained that the constitutional
provision requiring all members of
Phi Kappa to be communicants of
the Catholic church in good stand-
ing does not strictly violate the
SAC rule.
Osberger pointed out that any
man can become a member of the
Catholic church by the time of
initiation and be eligible for mem-
bership in the fraternity.
No IF Backing
The Phi Kappa petition carried
with it no recommendation from
the Interfraternity Council here.
The fraternity originally came
on campus in 1924 and occupied a
house on the corner of Cambridge
and Baldwin. In 1935, due to finan-
cial difficulties, the group deacti-

Passes IFC Suggestion

the position of fraternity house
managers and stewards.
Under the old ruling all officers
and chairmen of standing com-
mittees in housing groups includ-

It was pointed out that the two
positions in almost all houses are
strictly analogous to that of any
employe of a business firm. Since
there are no eligibility require-

that the change in this case would
equalize conditions for student em-

No Meeting
Of Advisory
Group Set
New Committee
To Study Cases
No meeting has yet been sched-
uled for the special committee
established yesterday by the Sen-
ate Advisory Committee for the
purpose of gathering data and
evaluating the cases of the three
suspended faculty members.
According to Prof. Algo Hen-
derson of the education school,
who announced the members of
the committee yesterday, the
committee will not meet until
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher calls a meeting. Prof.
Henderson is the chairman of the
17-member Senate Advisory Com-
To Aid Executive Groups
The new committee will act in
an advisory capacity, Prof. Hen-
derson said, and is intended to
supplement the executive commit-
tees of the literary college and the
medical school which are now in-
vestigating the cases.
Created as a result of a sug-
gestion made by the President at
the Faculty Senate meeting of
May 17, the special advisory com-
mittee is intended to give Univer-
sity-wide attention to the suspen-
sion cases since they involve the
whole University, according to
Prof. Henderson.
Prof. William B. Palmer of the
economics department, one of the
members of the new committee,
said that the creation of the com-
mittee is in line with the Univer-
sity policy established last year.
This policy, he said, has been one
of cooperation between the admin-
istration and the faculty on cases
arising from the Clardy hearings.
Members Listed
Besides Prof. Palmer, the mem-
bers of the five-man special com-
mittee are Prof. Paul S. Barker of
the medical school, Prof. David
M. Dennison of the physics de-
partment, Prof. Robert H. Sher-
lock of the engineering college,
and Prof. Russell A. Smith of the
Law School.
President Hatcher said that the
new committee will be asked to
gather further data, and evaluate
each case separately, then make
recommendations to the President,
according to a University news re-
lease. The President is in Chicago,
and could not be reached for fur-
ther comment.
Charles Odegaard, dean of the;
literary college, said last night
that the literary college's execu-
tive committee had interviewed1
Prof. Clement L. Markert of thel
zoology department and H. Chand-
ler Davis of the mathematics de-1
partment. He would make no
statement on whether his commit-
tee had made any recommenda-
tions to the President on whether
the recommendation would be
made public.
Director of Univrsity Relations<
Arthur L. Brandon could not be1
reached for comment on these
points. ,

Taylor Says Guatemala
Not Ready To Start War

The United States has sent
three Air Force Globemasters load-
ed with small arms to Nicaragua
and Honduras because of a re-
cent shipment of weapons to Gua-
temala by communist Poland.
Honduras and Nicaragua are
both just east of Guatamala. The
airlift was enforced because of a
possibility that these two coun-
tries may be planned targets of
Army Blasted
By McCarthy
seph McCarthy (R-Wis.), twice
accused by the Army of producing
doctored exhibits in the past,
turned accuser himself yesterday
and charged the Army with bring-
ing forth a "dishonest" and
"phoney" chart.
Three Army witnesses-a gen-
eral, a colonel and a lientenant-
testified they saw nothing dishon-
est about the chart, a big black
and white checkered affair pur-
portedly showing Pvt. G. David
Schine's absence via passes from
Ft. Dix, N. J.
But Sen. McCarthy contended to
the end of a hectic day that the
calendar-type chart was deliber-
ately calculated to give the tele-
vision audience a false impression
that Schine had "black marks"
against his record.
The Schine chart showed black
rectangles or squares denoting
Schine's passes from the fort.,A
companion chart had whitel
squares with black lines in them to
show the much smaller number of
leaves granted to a "typical trai-
nee" at Ft. Dix.

Guatemalan aggression or of the
internal Communist subversion.
Taylor Interprets
Prof. Philip B. Taylor, jr., of the
political science department, an
expert on Latin-American affairs,
said yesterday that in the pres-
ent situation Guatemala is not
able to go to war even if she re-
ceived the Communist shipment
of 2,000 tons of arms, which was
delivered there last week.
"Such a -small amount of weap-
ons is not dangerous or sufficient
enough to fight a war," said Prof.
Taylor. "But if they get more," he
continued, "there is a definite pos-
sibility of war between Guatemala
and her two neighbors."
Weapons and arms sent by the
United States to Nicaragua and
Honduras are of the type by light
infantry troops - ammunition,
jeeps, pistols, machine guns and
Air Attacks Possible
Prof. Taylor believed that any
attacks on these two countries
would have to be made by air, be-
cause overland invasion would be
almost impossible due to very
rough and almost impenetrable
terrain. Such small arms, he be-
lieved, were not useful to these
two countries.
"The United States should in-
tervene only ifhGuatemala does at-
tack," said the political science
professor. "They should not send
arms now."
"The best way to create a war
instead of avoiding one," added
Prof. Taylor, "is by sending arms
to these countries."
Anti-Reds Unorganized
Anti-communistic forces are not
organized at all in Guatemala, he
said. "The only strong anti-com-
munist groups are in Guatemala
City. There are many anti organ-
izations in Guatemala," he con-
tinued, "but they aren't pro any-
