HARD AS IT may try, the 12-man Committee
on Student Government will find no easy ans-
wers to problems of student government when it
meets Thursday to consider changes in the Laing
Plan. Two basically different concepts of student
government are at issue. And no amount of talk
alout working constructively with administration
and Regents can hide that fact. This is not to say
that a solution can not be found satisfactory to
all sides. But this solution must be based on thor-
ough understanding of the needs of the campus
community and the concept of student government
which will best satisfy those needs.
Preliminary to any discussion about the job
facing the study committee, however, is a consid-
eration of the condition of student government on
campus at the moment. A characteristic remark of
the fraternity man picking up his paper at break-
fast is a disgusted, "what's SL up to now?" This is
by no means a new observation, but in the fall 1954
semester it serves to typify general student feeling
about the present form of student government.
There is a good deal of irony in this kind of
bathrobe-and-black-coffee remark. What the fra-
ternity man really means is, "what kind of crack-
pots are these people who call themselves the Stu-
dent Legislature, and where do they get their nerve
claiming to represent me?" Interestingly enough
these same "crackpqts" got where they are because
our young friend and several thousand others voted
for them in the last all-campus election. Like it or
not they are his representatives.
What the irate fraternity man is objecting to
is the confusion and lack of direction afflicting
a student government having on official status
or recognition in the University community and
apparently living on borrowed time. Such is the
framework in which the present Student Legis-
lature finds itself. Couple with this the failure of
individual members of the Legislature to main-
tain any degree of real contact with the student
they allegedly represent, plus an almost chronic
tactlessness in handling issues, and the general
disgust is understandable.
To date the only significant step taken to streng-
then the Legislature has been a move toward a
party system, at best an adventure of doubtful out-
come. While factions might occasionally develop
on two sides of a single issue such as "whether to
allow communists to teach," it is unlikely that suc-
cessful parties could be sustained in the type of is-
sues usually facing the campus.
No small measure of SL's problem this fall, how-
ever, stems from the proposed Student Government
Council plan, expected to make the Legislature a
bad dream by next semester. Delay in bringing
the plan into operation has already caused con-
siderable confusion; prolonged delay might well be
disastrous. Indeed the transition to the new form,
if there is to be a new form, must come before very
long or the student body will have become so dis-
illusioned with the whole idea of student govern-
ment that they'd rather do without,
* * * *.
WHAT THEN is the basis for effective student
government? It is an official recognition on
the part of University administration that student
government has a very definite part to play in the
educational role of the University. That part in-
cludes giving the student body a large measure of
control over affairs pertaining exclusively to them
and a voice in forming policies which affect them
In their role as students.
Student government logically performs in three
areas. First, it serves formally, to crystallize and
represent student opinion to proper faculty and
administrative officers. It represents this opinion
by participating in policy decisions of joint ad-
ministrative-faculty-student committees and by
resolutions on particular issues.
Second, student government takes note of prob-
lem areas affecting students and collects data, opin-
ion and ideas to legislate some solution. In this
function student government must .bear in mind
its responsibility to the entire campus, not just
one segment of it, and frame its action in the in-
terest of the University as a whole.
Thirdly, student government implements its ac-
tions with necessary service projects and coordin-
ates and supervises those which fall under the
jurisdiction of no other group. Here a difficulty
arises because in order to be most effective the
government itself must be exclusively a policy mak-
ing body. Hence it becomes necessary to devise
some sort of sub-commission or administrative
wing structure made up of non-elective people

to carry out the service-implementation function
of the government.
Such is a brief summary of the necessary func-
tions of student government. Effective student gov-
ernment must avoid being merely another activity
on campus; being rather the focal point of stu-
dent activity. In addition it must have the res-
pect and support of students, something largely
determined by its personnel
- * * * *
THE PROPOSED Student Government Council
plan provides an answer to a very sizeable
chunk of the problem of more effective student
government. Of primary importance the plan makes
student government decent by giving it the sanc-
tion of University authority. The plan recognizes
the fact that determination of University policy
affecting students is a legitimate concern of stu-
Almost as important the plan makes SGC the only
student government, sweeping away the present
Student Affairs Committee, combining in one body
all the functions of SAC and SL.
By reducing the size of the council, the SCG
plan places an emphasis on the policy making
character of student government. This can have
two effects. 1) To attract students of a higher
calibre to sit on the council, including those who
don't want to be bothered with having to run a
dance or a mimeograph machine. 2) Allow service
projects to be handled by groups responsible to
SGC with personnel who are more interested in
this type of activity and who will do a more
capable job.
Criticisms of the plan center around its small
size (18 members, 11 elected, seven ex-officio), in-
clusion of seven so-called student experts and the
Board of Review. On the first point, the writer
agrees that 11 is too few to be expected to handle
the basic research and opinion gathering activities
of SGC. Some larger number, say 15 or even 20,
would be more desirable to handle the work and
provide wider representation. This could be done
without sacrificing quality of personnel.
Inclusion of seven ex-officio members (that is
the heads of the Union, League, Interfraternity
Council, Panhellenic, Inter-House Council, Assem-
bly and The Daily) would in fact broaden the re-
presentative nature of the SGC. Through daily con-
tact with wide segments of the student body in
their respective activities, these members would be
able to represent a cross-section of campus opin-
ion as well as be informed generally about student
Critics of the Review Board fail to note that some
method of checks and balances exists in any gov-
ernmental structure. Here the Board is limited by
a 96-hour time limit during which it must express
its intent to review an action of the council. It is
further restricted to review only those matters in-
volving questions of the Council's jurisdiction and
those requiring further consideration in view of
Regential policy or administrative practice. Abuse
of the Board's power would be self-defeating since
such action would destroy the whole fabric of the
SGC concept.
*f * * *
IN ITS deliberations the SGC study committee
should bear in mind a number of things. It
must first realize that there are certain limits be-
yond which the Laing Plan can not be com-
promised and still pose as effective student govern-
ment. If the point is reached where SGC is no
longer a student government but rather an ad-
ministrative device for keeping an unruly student
body in order, then the committee must have the
courage to scrap the whole idea.
The committee will also do well to hold all its
meetingis in open session. As soon as closed meet-
ings and secrecy come into the picture the com-
mittee ceases to work on the student government
plan and begins to work on the student govern-
ment plot. At open meetings it will be valuable to
call members of outside groups, administrators
and even Regents to offer dissenting opinion and
criticism of the plan.
Most important the committee must not dally.
Unless an effective plan is in the hands of the Re-
gents by early next month they will have every
reason to put off considering SGC at their Novem-
ber meeting, making it very doubtful whether the
plan, if passed any later, could go into effect for
the spring semester.
It is in the hands of the study committee and
ultimately the Regents to determine whether the
SGC proposal will become a device to hold the stu-
dent body in check or a sound plan for effective,
responsible student government at the University.

WASHINGTON - Here is more
on the probe of Henry Morgen-
thau's secret diary, faithfully kept
during the long years when he was
secretary of the treasury, and now
the object of scrutiny by the Sen-
ate Internal Security Committee
headed by Sen. William Jenner of
What Jenner's "G-men" are
probing for is any subversive links
between members of the Roosevelt
administration and Harry Dexter
White, whom Attorney General
Brownell has charged with being
a Russian spy. White worked in
the Treasury Department under
One thing the Jenner probers
have found is that Harry Dexter
White proposed a $10,000,000,000
loan to Russia toward the end of
the war and that Morgenthau
pushed this loan idea in talks with
President Roosevelt.
Mr. Mitchell, when questioned
about his work for the Jenner com-
mittee, acted like a witness before
the McCarthy committee. He re-
fused to say almost anything ex-
cept to admit his name and the
fact that he was working on the
Morgenthau diaries. However, here
is the full text, word for word, of
one of his reports to the Jenner
Yalta Talks

.LjetteP to i/he Cdilor .

"The diaries examined last week
show that White, through Morgen-
thau, made strenuous efforts to
have Roosevelt open the Yalta
Conference with an offer of a $10
billion postwar loan to Stalin.
White was insistent that the offer
be without conditions. Only by do-
ing so, White argued, would Stalin
be convinced of America's good
"Book 808, P. 103, Jan. 9, 1945-
Telephone conversation between
Morgenthau and Grace Tully in
which Morgenthau rehearses what
he proposes to tell Roosevelt about
the proposed loan to the USSR.
"Book 808, P. 300, Jan. 10, 1945-
Memo by Morgenthau of conversa-
tion with Stettinius at White House
while they were both waiting to
see Roosevelt. Morgenthau says
loan must be offered without con-
ditions and on the opening day of
"Book 810, P. 149, Jan. 17, 1945-
Meeting of Morgenthau and White
with Stettinius and other State De-
partment officials on loans to
USSR and also on discussion of
German industry. Morgenthau ar-
gues that Germany must be rend-
ered helpless to convince the USSR
that America and Britain were not
shielding secret designs on using
Germany later.
View On Fulton Lewis
"Last week I got through only
14 volumes. I was held back by
documents of British and French
lend lease. Since White was in
charge of these negotiations, I
hoped to find material of interest
to the committee. But in fact, al-
though I read the documents with
great care, I found very little.
"Morgenthau-so I am informed
by Kahn-is back in the country.
He telephoned Kahn last week ap-
parently to pick up whatever Kahn
knew. My impression is that the
sooner Jim and I go away, the
better Morgenthau and Kahn will
like it.
"For your information, Kahn is
an egg-head. He held himself in
very well until Muskie's election.
Next day, he sidled up to Jim and
me and delivered himself of a sud-
den, sneering attack on Fulton
Lewis, Jr. The attack was apropos
of nothing. I don't think he meant
to make it. I think his suppressed
feelings got the better of him."

Old Soldier S L.
To the Editor:
THE Administration pressure
which led to the cancellation
of Dr. Davis' appearance before
SL should not be permitted to go
Your article states that in their
talk with SL President Jelin, ". .
Dean Rea and Bingley raised the
question as to whether an open
meeting with an off-campus
speaker (Dr. Davis), such as the
scheduled SL meeting, should be
cleared through the Lecture Com-
mittee." This "question" is so ab-
surd that I wonder if your ar-
ticle is correct in attributing it to
men of the calibre and integrity of
Dean Rea and Mr. Bingley. For it
is only because he is now an "off-
campus" instead of "on-campus"
speaker that Dr. Davis' case is an
issue at all. I am certain that
neither Dean Rea nor Mr. Bingley
would suggest that the Adminis-
tration has the right to declare a
f a c u lt y member "off-campus,"
then insist that he get permission
from the same Administration to
defend himself.
But a second point that must
be considered is a quote attributed
to Jelin: "I was warned that if
Davis spoke tonight we were
sounding the death knell of the
Legislature." Because of "possible
consequences which the SL may
not have realized," it was decided
that Dr. Davis should not speak.
I would suggest that if SL does
not risk possibly "death" at the
hands of Administration or Re-
gents by considering important is-
sues, it will die unmourned at the
hands of student apathy. Issues
exist only when there is an un-
resolved controversy and several
possible solutions are seen by the
various participants. Students will
cease to care about SL if it fails
to handle the most important is-
sues because these are also the
ones generating the greatest con-
troversy and consequences.
It may well be that Dr. Davis'
appearance was unnecessary be-
cause the needed "information was
available without his appearing,"
but this discovery should not have
been made under pressure. If SL
never risks dying with its boots on,
someday it will just fade away.

To The Editor:
I WISH TO take this opportunity
to congratulate you on your edi-
torial ofeOctober 14, concerning
the recent dissention over non-
segregation in the Baltimore Public
Schools. The young reporter pre-
sented a most intelligent and astute
picture of a rather unclear situa-

succinct statements as these that
a truly honest view of the cir-
cumstance could be obtained.
We have all seen inept report-
ing of the out of context state-
ments, and misrepresentation in
these past days, that it is a pleas-
ant relief to read such an ob-
jective appraisal. It is unfortun-
ate that the national syndicates
and periodicals have not seen fit

GM Formula...
To the Editor:
MR. WILSON'S statement about
workingmen and birddogs de-
serves much of the criticism it
has received. Much but not all.
Contrary to current popular opin-
ion, Mr. Wilson may not be the
epitome of the callous capitalist.
A little over six years ago, May
1948, General Motors startled all
industry and began a new evolu-
tion in labor-management rela-
tions. It agreed to a wage contract
that included for the first time, an
a n n u a 1 productivity increase.
Someonerwith courage and insight
had borrowed economic theory
that recognized increased produc-
tivity due to experience, and had
given that theory practical appli-
cation. With the GM contract as
precedent, labor unions in other
industries could claim the same
The final decision for this uni-
que step belonged to (evil) Charles
Wilson. He was under no special
pressures to recognize the prin-
ciple of annual increased producti-
vity. Most likely he would receive
the wrath of his fellow industrial-
ists for giving this new bargaining
tool to labor. Yet he took that step.
I am not implying that Mr. Wil-
son is God's gift to labor, his bird-
dog statement was rash and its,
meaning derogatory. The point is
that pseudo-liberals who are so
quick to denounce Wilson's -nar-
rowness, should reflect for a few
moments their own position.

"Beat It - We've Got An Election To Win"

POL \C -

At Rackham...
The Stanley Quartet in a pro-
gram of Beethoven String Quar-
CONTINUING their complete
Beethoven cycle, the Stanley
Quartet performed the Quartet in
A Major, Op. 18, No. 5, the Quar-
tet in F Minor, Op. 95; and the
Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 130,
on Sunday afternoon.
Though my record of listening
to the Stanley is indeed short, I
have not heard them in better
form than in the A Major quartet.
The entire performance was pos-
sessed of a buoyance and a flow
of melody that made listening a
pure joy. A wonderful flexibility
in rhythm, tone and dynamics was
especially apparent in the varia-
tions of the third movement. The
final allegro has that cool urgency
and grace that we associate with
Mozart. I sometimes wonder why
string players look so serious when
they play music like this, but I
forget that all I have to do is lis-
ten. The effort required to bring
all of Beethoven's quartets to life
is so much greater than the effort
required to listen to them, even
intelligently. The first third of
Sunday's concert seemed not an
effort but an enjoyment of youth-
ful vitality and good spirits.
The F Minor quartet plunges
us into the midst of a struggle
between Beethoven and frag-
mentary musical ideas. His at-
tempt to bind them into form
occupies most of the quartet,
especially the first movement,
the insistence-even violence--
of which seemed most force-
fullyprojected. The sharp con-
trasts of lyric and melodic ideas
in the third movement called
again for the flexibility we heard
earlier. In the final movement
the lack of tonal blend, which
usually characterizes the Stan-
ley, became apparent; some bad-
ly tuned octaves disturbed the
Largo, and the final allegro sec-
tion, which ought to vanish in a
flash of luminous tone, seemed
stringy and ghostlike.
The great rambling Quartet in
B-flat Major displays an extrem-
ely wide range of emotions-from
the effervescent little presto to
the Cavatina, which Beethoven
himself described as the melody
which moved him the most of any
he wrote. The movement was play-
ed with deep feeling, but again
sadly marred in spots by tuning
problems. The final allegro isn't
much of a conclusion to the quar-
tet as a whole; we shall hear the
original last movement at the fin-
al concert, when the quartet will
be repeated and concluded with
the Great Fugue. By then, it ought
to be apparent after Sunday's con-
cet, we shall have heard some
marvelous music and some first
rate performances.

Are Ropes Needed to Avoid
That Run-Down Feeling

FOLLOWING UP the recent discussion on the re-
spective merits of bird-dogs and kennel dogs,
it seems interesting to investigate the character-
istics of two other animals, the sheep and the mule,
and then an even more fascinating animal, the
University Student.
Sheep are nice mild little animals that want
to please everyone. They never like to assert their
personalities, and hurt some other sheep's feel-
ings, so they very considerately go in whatever
direction anyone points them. They have no
prejudices-they follow any leader.
Now look at the mule as a contrast. The mule
is a very individualistic animal. He has a mind of
his own, and when he decides to stand still and
not move, no one can budge him. He doesn't care
if he interferes with someone else's plans-he
just lowers his head and stands his ground.
The University Student possesses an interesting
combination of the characteristics of both of the

change is not feasible, the remedy for the situa-
tion must come from the students themselves.
Simply requesting the students to keep moving
and not cause any congestion doesn't seem to work.
Unfortunately we seem to need more prompting
than a mere verbal plea for cooperation.
It has been suggested that guide ropes be
put up to mark pathways through the crowds,
thereby leaving a walking space free, while also
allowing room for relaxing between classes. But
this idea, as all others, depends on the students'
Dean Thuma has stated that "all suggestions are
welcomed, as the University is anxious to clear up
this consistently-recurring problem." Nothing, how-
ever, will work unless the students themselves are
interested enough to cooperate with any plan put
into operation.
