To Decide Cases
Stressed Need for Prompt Action
on Three Faculty Suspensions
The Student Legislature last night passed a motion urging

sider and collect all relevant information and decide on the cases.

The motion, which passed by a vote of 20 to eight, stressed that
it is in the best interest of the University that the President's deci-
sion be rendered before the close of the current semester.
The legislature's action was prompted by the animosity aroused
on campus in 1951 when former President Alexander G. Ruthven

Of Meeting Time
A meeting of the newly formed
five-member advisory committee
will be held "as soon as a com-

probably within the next day or
two," University President Har-
lan H. Hatcher said yesterday.
Composed of five faculty mem-
bers and having no chairman,
the committee was established
Tuesday by the Faculty Senate
Advisory Committee to gather
data and evaluate the faculty sus-
pension cases. It will make recoi-

In the Deke case, Judic had

into the severity of the fine, but

. Streiff Cites
Housing Rules
' Men students and landlords
were reminded yesterday by As-
sistant to the Dean of Students
Karl D. Streiff of a University
rule prohibiting the use of apart-
ments as living quarters for men
students, except on permission of'
the Dean of Students.
The University by-law states
that all undergraduate men stu-
dents not living with their fami-
lies shall live in residence halls or
in other residences approved by
j. the' Dean of Students. No unmar-
ried men students, either grad-
uate or undergraduate, may live
in private apartments.
The Dean of Students is given
authority to make exceptions to
these regulations in cases where
in his opinion conditions warrant
Ssuch action.
According to Streiff, an apart-
ment is defined as a room or
rooms where there is a kitchen or
other cooking facilities, where
there is a private -entrance or
where there is no manager in resi-
dence in the building. Private
rooms which do not fall under
these categorys are permissable,
Streiff said, and need not be reg-

Debate on the motion was ex-
pectedly vigorous with attention
being drawn to the vagueness of
the clause "as soon as possible.'
Period Should Be Stipulated
A few members expressed the
- view that if a particular period
i was stipulated in which a deci-
5 sion should be reached, the mo-
s, tion would perhaps be more effec-
tive and desirable.
- Supporting the motion, Bob
s Leacock, '57, said, "they had
- plenty of time to gather all rele-
al vant information." Hank Berliner,
'56, opposing advanced the view
that no motion "will make them
d move faster than they want to."
, In other business, the legisla-
ture sanctioned an appropriation
r of $210 for the Student Discount
Service. The money will be used to
f purchase student identification
d cards entitling them to discounts
and a list of establishments where
discounts will be available.
