Behind the Smile:
A Closer Look
WITH MORE University men than ever expected
to experience the two week succession of broad
smiles and firm handshakes that is popularly term-
ed social fraternity rushing it is certainly appro-
priate at this time to take an editorial look at the
various aspects of the fraternity system.
The primary concern of a prospective rushee
is to find the house whose men best personify his
own principles and interests. If he fails In this
endeavor it would probably be better if he tried
elsewhere for the satisfaction of his gregarious
nature during his remaining college days. The
finding of a satisfactory fraternity is sometimes
difficult but if it is once found, the close asso-
ciations of affiliated life can make a person's
undergraduate years more pleasant ones.
The word pleasant is vague but many of the
benefits of fraternity life are intangible. The friend-
ships gained, the mutual sharing of individual ac-
complishment and the satisfaction of sacrificing
sometimes for group gain are a trio of intangible
advantages that are part of fraternity life.
Although cynics, pseudo-intellectuals and ex-
treme individualists may deny that these points
are advantageous to rushees, social fraternities
also give men more party opportunities (usually
a fraternity will hold registered parties at least
once every three weeks) and the chance to meet
more of the women who managed, to survive a
sorority rushing session.
A semi-loss of individualism, occasional nights
when house conditions are more conducive to li-
brary study and pressure to take part in house
activities whether they are interesting or not can
be listed in this category.
It is because there are disadvantages that a
man's choice in the matter is so important. For
many who have made the wrong choice the fra-
ternity experience has been a sour one with dis-
advantages waxing very prominent in his mem-
ory. Often this person never had an opportunity
to savor the good points of fraternity life be-
cause he was associating with men far removed
from his individual principles and interests.
Because the choice is so important first semester
freshmen are not urged to pledge. Unlike the sor-
orities which hold rushing only once a year, the
fraternity system opens its doors to rushees at the
beginning of each semester. Consequently if a man
pledges during his second semester on campus he
can still be eligible to move into the fraternity
house when his dormitory contract expires.
A first semester freshman is not actually ready
to make a selectioon from the 42 houses existing
on campus. Generally he knows very little about
other phases of the University let alone the fra-
ternities. A first semester freshman should orien-
tate himself before he gets himself tied perma-
nently to an organization.
To help the orientation process it is suggested
that an interested freshman rush casually his first
semester. He should go to the open houses today
and tomorrow and acquaint himself slightly with
the different houses. These first impressions should-
n't be conclusive but instead should be introduc-
tory in nature so that when he takes part in ser-
ious rushing next February he will have some back-
ground on which to base one of the most important
lecisions of his collegiate life.
On Campus 1
AS TRAINLOADS and carloads of students un-
packed into Ann Arbor rooms last week to be-
gin the fall semester, the University opened its
doors to an enthusiastic and statistically record-
breaking student body.
Dormitories, houses and apartments bulged
with an enrollment which may well reach a 22,-
000 total. The final count will be known after
five-week tabulations, including enrollments at
University extensions all over the state.
Freshmen, quickly shepherded around campus in
wide-eyed orientation groups, flocked to bookstores
to buy Michigan stationery and bulletin boards, and
comprised the bigest class of first-year students in
Another figure released by the Registrar's Of-
fice should encourage the male sector of campus-
this semester has brought an all-time high in the
number of women students.

SGC PROPOSAL NEGLECTED-Some students
were annoyed by the failure of the Board of Re-
gents at its Wednesday meeting to consider the
plan for a Student Government Council.
The SGC plan, as drawn up in a committee
headed by Prof. Lionel Laing of the political
science department, would combine the functions
of the existing Student Legislature and Student
Affairs Committee. SL voted willing endorsement
of the proposal at its meeting Tuesday, but must
now revitalize itself to serve as an effective stu-
dent government body until SGC is approved.
Chief result of the Regents' meeting was the ac-
ceptance of $370,495.20 in gifts and grants to the
University. A $200,000 donation from the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis was the largest.
BERMUDAS BANNED--Campus small-talk arose
over a statement issued by the Dean of Women's
Office reminding women that Bermuda shorts,
slacks and jeans are out of place in official Uni-
Mildly disturbed students complained that the
rule is an infringement on freedom and an un-
necessary piece of Admirnistrative concern, but
most women chose conventional skirts for ven-
tnrPS into +hnAdaministrationa nd classroom
Who Is She?
THISREPORTER set out today to take a sort
of poll of the student body's attitude towards
the much disputed SGC proposal. To get to the
very heart of the matter and with the purpose
of stirring up some spirit and enthusiasm in the
replies of those who were interviewed, the question
first put to them was simply: "What do you think
Here are just a few of the replies:
"Gee, I don't know much about it myself."
"Why ask me?"
"It's pretty good I guess."
And then the classic statement of the day-
"Who is she?"
No further attempt was made to continue this
poll which was proving to be nothing less than a
pitifully sad farce. The only illuminating fact re-
vealed from this poll of approximately twenty stu-
dents picked at random, was that they were either
totally ignorant of, or at most indifferent to their
This fact is the core of our problem. Those
who complain about the weakness of the Stu-
dent Legislature, which is supposedly the rep-
resentative body and voice of our student opinion
here in the University, have no justification in
their complaints. There is no student opinion-
or if there is it cannot be heard.
A student government without the backing of
its student body is naturally going to be a weak
one. Those who do want a strong SL can go about
getting one by acquainting themselves and their
friends with its present workings and this not-
so-new SGC proposal. At this time it seems that the
voice of SL is not loud enough or at least not force-
ful enough to extract some positive action from
the Board of Regents.
Until the student body will join their voices and
endeavors with their "representative workhorse's,"
no such positive action or results should be ex-
WASHINGTON-Despite the Maine elections and
a lot of worry around Republican headquar-
ters, GOP strategists have several important moves
up their sleeves. or, as FDR used to say, they are
in a position to pull several rabbits out of the hat,
Rabbit No. 1 is a series of indictments of high
Truman officials which Attorney-General Brown-
ell has been nursing. Originally it was planned
to spring these shortly after Congress adjourned
and as the political campaign began to warm up.
The idea was to stage another Harry Dexter
White expose similar to that which Brownell
pulled out of the hat just before the special
election in California last November.
However, some Justice Department officials be-
lieve this may backfire. Also the indictment of ex-
Congressman Joe Casey of Massachusetts, a prom-
inent Deriocrat, has now been dismissed by U.S.
Judge Youngdahl, so the Brownell boys are a little
more cautious. They don't want any more boomer-
angs a la Casey.
Rabbit No. 2 is the series of labor investigations
now being staged by both Senate and House
committees. These are aimed at discouraging
labor contributions to the Democrats, also at
reminding white-collar workers that labor had a
large voice in Democratic regimes.
Rabbit No. 3 may be a probe of Communist ac-
tivities which Senator McCarthy has been talking
about, but which depends somewhat on how far
the Senate goes in censuring McCarthy.
Rabbit No. 4 is increased spending. This was
carefully planned in advance, and it's hoped that
the full force of the spending will be felt within the
next few weeks. For instance, Harold Stassen's
Foreign Operations Administration is buying 10,-
000,000 tons of coal-mostly from the distressed
areas in the Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ken-
tucky coal fields.
Recent budget estimates show that Eisenhow-
er's nondefense spending this year will be high-
er than Truman's nondefense spending by about
half a billion dollars. This includes highways,
farm supports, veterans aid, housing, shipping
subsidies, medical aid, etc. Eisenhower's total
nonmilitary spending has now been upped about
a billion and a half dollars over his original bud-
This has been gradual, and GOP strategists be-
lieve it will have some impact during the election

.'MENDES-FRANCE REFUTES WILEY
A LEXANDER WILEY, roly-poly chariman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee who looks
more and more like a statesman compared with
another Senator from Wisconsin, had little time to
sightsee during his recent tour of Europe. He did,
however, manage to get one day off to visit his
relatives in Kongsberg, Norway, near Oslo.
The Wisconsin Republican, both of whose par-
ents were Norwegian immigrants, didn't know
any of his distant cousins, but he speaks Norwe-
gian, and a fine time was had by all. Instead of
the usual press photographs, a few family snap-
shots were taken, and Wiley was thankful for a
chance to stave off the diplomats and relax with

ADENAUER IS OPTIMISTIC
SENATOR WILEY found Chancellor Konrad Ade-
nauer gay, cheerful and optimistic. When they
parted, Adenauer presented Mrs. Wiley with a
large German doll dressed in the garb of a black
forest peasant girl.
When the senior Senator from Wisconsin was
asked about the Junior Senator from Wisconsin, as
he was many times during his trip, he had onily
this to say:

Activities vs, Thoughts?
To the Editor:
I have read with interest and
amazement the Medical School Ex-
ecutive Committee's recommenda-
tion of dismissal for Dr. Nicker-
son. I would like to add to John
Baumgartner's pertinent comments
in yesterday's Daily on the Com-
mittee 's futile attempts at logic
They said a man's political
thoughts are private, but his polit-
ical activities are open to question.
In this statement lies the danger-
ous implication that a man's ac-
tions should not be in harmony
with his beliefs if they do not con-
form to society. Does the Commit-
tee believe they have the right to
ask a man to remain inactive
through fear when he has come to
certain conclusions honestly, cour-
ageously, and intelligently?" One
of the main themes in "The Next
Development in Man," by the bril-
liant British scientist L.L. Whyte
is that man is an organic whole,
thathhis thoughts and actions must
be unified and congruous, and that
much of the frustration and neuro-
sis in the present day is attributed
to the suppression, intimidation, so-
cietal pressures, and personal
fears that prevent dreams, ideas,
and desires from taking overt ex-
If one argues that Dr. Nicker-
son's activity was harming others,
then will the Committee not admit
that it was the duty of the investi-
gative grou' as prosecutors and
attackers to show overt acts of es-
pionage, sabotage, or advocacy of
overthrow on Dr. Nickerson's part.
Since when do we have to prove
The defeat or rejection of unpop-
ular ideas does not come about
through fear, hysteria, ignorance,
and suppressive laws, but by the
basic soundness and workability of
the existing ideals and system. The
Committee by its actions has not
only denied the complete personal-
ity of a man, but has violated
American law, and denied their
own faith in the ability o} our so-
ciety to exist despite 'opposing

Still Another View .** *
To the Editor:
IT SEEMS to me, anyhow, that
such reviews as the recent out-
rage by someone with the improb-
able name of Siegfried Feller
which appeared on the reviewers
page the other day have no real
place in a newspaper with any pre-
tentions to adequate coverage,
even though they be printed be-
low Drew Pearson. This type of
slick but nasty reviewing really is
of little value either as criticism
or as literature, it appears. Of
course the language used is more
or less a matter for the reviewer
to decide; yet the type of strain-
of-consciousness material Feller
uses in an unsuccessful effort to
put over his obviously monstrous
knowledge of the world and what's
good on us poor readers together
with a style imitative of certain
magazines which need not be men-
tioned gives me, at any rate, only
a foggy idea of what's wrong with
this Egyptian atrocity. Give us
the biting reviews of Don Mal-
colm; resurrect the libelous writ-
ings of Tom Arp; unearth the de-
ranged criticisms of Harvey Gross;
publish the gentle reprimands of
Bill Wiegand; but beware of this
high powered "volunteered" re-
viewing which will only needlessly
antagonize most people and will
only perhaps cause some to go see
the Egyptian anyhow just to show
that they can; this last is most
horrible to contemplate since one
hears that the film is ghastly.
Formal Protest ...
To the Editor:
THE BOARD of Regents dis-
missed, as everyone knows,
Professors Nickerson and Davis
late this summer when no pro-
tests could be raised from fac-
ulty, students and newspapers.
However, it is our sincere and
earnest hope that student poli-
tical, academic, and religious
groups will resolve to adopt a plan
of formal protest against the dis-
missals, that petitions will be cir-
culated, and meetings and discus-
This is a question of academic
and intellectual freedom and we
must not succumb to what the Re-
gents hoped for-fear and apathy.

Short Omission ..**
To the Editor:

istration has made one import-
ant omission in this past semes-
ter's bulletin. They neglected to
